Achievement Guide
 
Well, here's my first attempt at an achievement guide. I've used these methods under my friends profile and i'm now doing them on mine, so they have worked for me and hopefully for you too!


5 Create a Team
Pretty self explanatory. As soon as you load up the game for the first time, you will have to create a team. Once you're done, achievement unlocks


10 Gift of Grab
Catch 10 Passes with a Bronze WR
Get a Gold QB and fill your offensive line with Gold, Silver, and/or Bronze players. Keep throwing to him until you have the achievement. I found Alvin Harper the easiest to use.

5 Create a Player
Create a Player
Under the options is one called create a player. You can quickly throw one together or make a legend like Bo Jackson who wasn't included! Achievement unlocks

5 Edit any part of your team
Edit Team
Go into the options of 'Manage Your Team' and change any option like uniform color and the achievement will unlock!

15 Return a Fumble for a Touchdown
Return a Fumble for a Touchdown
This one can be a little tricky. Best way to do this is to turn penalties off and when the computer goes to punt have your guy standing in front and block it. PICK IT UP AND RUN! Also note that if you block a punt and pick it up in the end zone, it does not count as returning a fumble. You have to run it in.

15 Game Record Forced Fumbles
Set the single game record for forced fumbles
You have to force 4 fumbles with one player to get this achievement. This can be tough since there aren't many fumbles that occur in this game. Use the same method as above to block punts. Most of the time it will give you credit for a forced fumble.

20 Game Record Defensive INT
Set the single game record for INTs
This one can be a little frustrating. You need 5 interceptions with one player. Get a Gold CB (or 2 Gold CB if you'd like) and play a game against a friend or use a 2nd controller. Have them keep lobbing hail mary passes and you shouldn't have too much trouble picking off 5 of them. Just to make sure time is not an issue, as soon as you get the ball, punt it back. I can't tell you how many times I finished with 4 interceptions!

15 Game Record Passing Yards
Set the single game record for Passing Yards
You need 555 yards for this one. Get a gold qb (I like Joe Montana) and a gold wr (Jerry Rice works great). Go into 'DIFFICULTY' and turn all of your skills to '100' and the CPU to '0'. Some people reccommend using the 'Hail Mary' pass, but I suggest going into 'Pro Form' and using the 'Flea Flicker' pass. 90% of the time your 'X' receiver or 'LB' receive should be wide open!

20 Game Record Receiving Yards
Set the single game record for Receiving Yards
You need 337 yards with one player. Use the same method as the Passing Yards achievement.

10 Game Record Rushing Yards
Set the single game record for Rushing Yards
You need 296 yards. Simply turn down the CPU sliders and turn yours up. Also, select a Gold RB and get some good linemen. Just keep pounding it out and you should get this easily

20 Game Record for Defensive Sacks
Set the single game record for Defensive Sacks
You need 8 sacks for this one. Just turn penalties off and get the lineman you choose to use to stand right in front of the QB. As soon as he snaps the ball sack him. It's actually quite funny as well. Also, sacks count as tackles, so I suggest using a silver lineman for this and use the method 7 more times and you will also unlock the 'Bring Em Down' Achievement or you can use a Bronze lineman and get the 'Sack Master' Achievement

10 Game Record Touchdowns
Set the single game record for Touchdowns
You need 8 touchdowns. If you're working towards the passing yard or receiving yard records, this should come right along with it. Your QB will get this after he throws his 8th TD

20 Stride Gum... long lasting drive
Near end of the 2nd qtr or later, score an 80 yard TD
THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE ONE PLAY. With around 2 minutes left in the half, just start a drive from the 20 and end it with a touchdown. I used the 'Flea Flicker' play and scored immediately. If it is close to halftiime and the computer is punting or kicking off, run back behind the 20 yard line so you can be sure to get the achievement

15 Return an INT for a Touchdown
Return an INT for a Touchdown
This is easier than the fumble return for a TD. If you have all of your sliders adjusted, eventually you'll pick one off close enough to the goalline to run it back in.

15 Win 10 Games Online
Win 10 Online Games

15 3 Online Wins in a Row

SEE '5 ONLINE WINS IN A ROW'

20 5 Online Wins in a Row
5 Online Wins in a Row
There are 2 ways of doing this. You can get a friend and take turns quitting to give the achievements to each other. NOTE, you have to play the achievement game. For example if you are going for 3 wins in a row, you can win on a forfeit on the first 2, but you have to play the 3rd. You can also get this by legitimately playing people. Unless you really want a challenge, just look for people with terrible records. Why would you play someone who is 174-0 when you can play someone whose 0-19 :)

ACTUALLY, you can quit all the games except the 50th game. You don't have to play each achievement game. Just make sure at some point in your sim-quitting that each of you win 5 in a row and you'll get all the achievements after the 50th

5 It's fun to play together
Join an Online League
You don't get this for creating a league, you have to join one. Just go into the online menu and join a league. Not too difficult at all.

5 Get Connected
Play an Online Game
This does not count if you play in the 'Beginners' lobby. Just go into the 'PRO' lobby and play a game. Once it's over, you get the achievement

20 League Participation
Play an Online League or Tournament Game
Remember that league you joined? Play a game in it and there you go. You don't have to win to get the achievement

50 We are the Champions
Win an Online League or Tournament
You can legitimately beat your competition or get a few friend to create tournaments and take turns winning.

20 Golden Arm
Throw for 500 Yards with a Gold QB in a Single Game
If you selected a Gold QB (which you should) for the 'Passing Yards' Achievement, you should get this one as well.

15 Run & Gun
Pass for 200 Yards & Rush for 50 Yards with a Silver QB in a single game
The 200 passing yards is pretty easy and if you use the sliders, the 50 yards rushing won't be too difficult. I used Randall Cunningham, but you can also create a Silver QB and give him the Scrambling skill.

10 Six for 6
Throw 6 Touchdown Passes with a Bronze QB
Pretty self explanatory. Just pick any Bronze QB and throw 6 touchdowns. Don't forget those sliders if you're having trouble.

robertfee 08-02-2007 07:14 PM

20 Two for One
Gain 150 Rec YDS each with a Bronze and a Gold WR
When You're working on the passing yards achievement you can get this one too. Just flip the 'Flea Flicker' play so you're bronze WR is the 'X' receiver. I used Jerry Rice and Alvin Harper

15 Over the top
Gain 200 Rec YDS with a Bronze WR
Since you've already got 150 yards with the Bronze WR in the previous achievement, throw another 50 yards and get another achievement

10 Pound it out
Gain 250 Rushing Yards with a Bronze Running Back in a single game
Just keep it on the ground. I used Christian Okoye and got the necessary yard in one 10 minute quarter. If you are worried you might lose yards, take him out after you get the necessary yards, as yardage achievements won't unlock until after the game.

20 You want me to do what?
Gain 200 Rushing+100 Receiving Yards with a Gold Running Back in a single game
Pretty self explanatory. Barry Sanders is always a good choice. Try not to do too many achievements in one game. It's terrible to finish with almost enough for a bunch of achievements. Try and focus on 1 or 2 at a time. This is one that takes some focus on one player, so I suggest turning fatigue to '100' so he doesn't get tired.

15 Ground Game
Score 4 Rushing Touchdowns with a Silver Running Back in a Single Game
Any Silver HB will do. If you're not good at the running game, pass until you get to the 1 yard line and have your Silver HB dive in for the Touchdown!


10 Sack Master
Get 5 sacks in a single game with a Bronze Defender
See 'GAME RECORD SACKS'

10 2 Points
Get a Safety
Use the 'Game Record Sacks' method and just wait until they are backed up into their own end zone and bring him down for the achievement!

30 Butter fingers
Set the Record for Forced Fumbles in a Single Season
You need 7 for the season. Use the method for the 'Game Record Forced Fumbles' You
need 7 with a single defender in a season. You can simulate games as well but make sure you
play the last game of the season to unlock the achievement


35 Covered like a blanket
Break the single season record for INTs
The best player to use is the Night Train. He's a Gold CB. The easiest way is to simulate each game of the season, but check and see if he got at least one interception in the game. If he did move on, if not reload your season and redo the game. You need 16 for the achievement. Make sure you play the last game to get the achievement.

30 Spread the wealth
Finish the Season with 5084+ Passing Yards with a single player
Simulate all but the last game of the season. I used Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. Make sure you are at or around 5084 yards and play the last game of the season. This one isn't too tough.

35 Take it to the house
Finish the Season with 1848+ Receiving Yards with a single player
You should get this one and the previous one together. Once again, I used Jerry Rice with Joe Montana throwning to him. Play the last game of the season and achievement unlocked!

20 Single Season Rushing Record
Finish the Season with 2105+ Rushing Yards with a single player
Use the same method as 'Spread the Wealth'. I picked Barry Sanders and got a good run blocking line. Play the last game and you've got it!

35 Single Season Sack Record
Set the Single Season Sack Record
You need 23 sacks. Just use the other Sack Achievement method and you can actually get this one in one game!

20 Punch it in there
Set the Single Season TD Record
You need 29 touchdowns. I used OJ Simpson and simulated all but the last game. He had 26 and I got 3 more. Just pick up whatever you're lacking in the final season game.

40 Win the Season Mode Championship
Become the Season Mode Champion
You don't have to play the season at all. Just simulate games and make sure your team is the champion!

25 Mission Accomplished
Complete Season
You'll get this one along with the previous one together. Even if you don't win the championship, you'll get this one after the season ends.

10 Play a Season Game
Complete a game in Season Game
Play one season game and you'll get this one. You don't have to win either

100 Mission Impossible
Complete Season Mode Undefeated and win the League Championship
This one can also be done by simulating. Sim a game. If you didn't win, reload that game and try again.

15 All - Pro
Shut Out the A.I. on All-Pro Difficulty
'SEE SHUT'EM DOWN'

20 Legend
Shut Out the A.I. on Legend Difficulty
'SEE SHUT'EM DOWN'

25 Shut'em Down
Shut out the A.I. on Pro Difficulty
Set the quarter length to 1 minute and the difficulty to PRO. Start a 2 player game and win with your team. You'll get the achievement and you didn't even have to play the CPU!

15 Bring'em down
Record 15 Tackles with a Silver Player
See 'Game Record for Defensive Sacks'

10 The first one is the hardest
Win a game
Self Explanatory. Win a game. It can be against the computer or a ranked match. Note that games played in the online lobby 'Beginner' do not count for this achievement either.

5 2 INTs with a Gold defender
Get 2 INTs with a Gold defender in a single game.
Use the Night Train and refer to the method used in 'Game Record Defensive Interceptions'

If you have any suggestions or easier ways, feel free to let me know. Hope this was helpful!

twotonkoala 08-02-2007 07:46 PM

The only thing that I would add:

For the forced fumble achievements (and can also be used for the sack achievements, as well as the shut out on X difficulty achievements-although your way is easier on that one)

Create a team and make sure you get Too Tall Jones on your defensive line, turn off penalties, and just go to town. One of his special talents is stripping the ball, so half of the time you go for the sack, he will force a fumble. Try to get the QB from the backside and you'll have better luck. Most of them if not all will count as sacks as well, so I ended up getting these two achievements (game and season record) as well as the sack (game and season record) achievements in one 5 minute quarter game.

As I mentioned, you can use this to shut out the opponent (that's how I got them) because you only have to tie, not win, as long as they don't score points. So, set it to one minute quarters, sack the hell out of them, then when you get the ball just kneel and it should run out the clock. Although your way is easier, but just a suggestion in case someone doesn't have two controllers or somesuch.

double edit: I actually got the return a fumble for a touchdown by falling on one that Too Tall forced in the end zone (wasn't running into the end zone), so it may not work for a punt, but it definately worked for me with a regular fumble in the end zone.

robertfee 08-03-2007 02:02 PM

that is good to know. i have several friends with only one controller, so another option is much appreciated!

mateo1472 08-03-2007 08:06 PM

For the online achievements does it erase your record at the end of the month like on most of the other 2K games?

robertfee 08-04-2007 12:30 AM

i'm not sure if it does or not. i got them all in one night. yeah that was A BIG SUPRISE in NBA 2k7 when i needed 2 more wins for the achievement and i was back to 0-0. not a happy moment:uzi:

mateo1472 08-04-2007 06:21 AM

O that suck I was just wondering because if they don't get deleted at the end of month then I was going to try and earn them for fun.

ASTROBL4ACK 08-05-2007 02:01 AM

So you can use 2 controllers, adjust sliders penalties etc?

If so this should be a fairly simple game.

robertfee 08-06-2007 12:54 AM

yep, the only things that dont unlock when you adjust the sliders is the 'shut out the cpu' achievements. and you can use 2 controllers on those!

SpideR NY 08-08-2007 03:16 PM

"15 Return a Fumble for a Touchdown
Return a Fumble for a Touchdown
This one can be a little tricky. Best way to do this is to turn penalties off and when the computer goes to punt have your guy standing in front and block it. PICK IT UP AND RUN! Also note that if you block a punt and pick it up in the end zone, it does not count as returning a fumble. You have to run it in."

This is false. Just wanted to let you know. I blocked a punt and landed on it in the endzone and got the achievement.

Edit: Also for the forced fumble achievement (as someone else has said) too tall works awesome!

CucumberJones 08-09-2007 06:51 AM

The fumble one works better if you just turn off penalties and run into the punter every time. It worked every try.

brsfan22 08-16-2007 04:43 PM

This may sound like a stupid question but which way should the sliders be turned for interceptions and touchdowns? I used Too Tall and got the sacks no problem and I used the punt block fumble technique and got that no problem but I still need the interception achievement. I hardly ever get interceptions even with gold CB's. Should they be at 0 or 100? And should I just let them catch the ball or should I hit RB to catch it?

nezff 08-22-2007 06:40 PM

the easiest and most effective way to get any of these achievments is to fire up 2 controllers, you can set the difficulty where you want for the shutout of the ai and set the penalties to off, and set the quarter to 1 minute. When going for any of the offensive achievments, use the second controller to take control of the defense and move everyone to one side of the field and either pass or run to that side. very easy. just change your gold,silver, and bronze guys to what you need for whatever achievment. I got a boat load of them this morning with this method. any questions feel free to ask or pm. thanks

yes, i already stated that the easiest way to get the shutouts is to use 2 controllers, so you just repeated what was already posted. also, i completely disagree with the second part about using 2 controllers to get the other achievements. by the time you move all the guys out of the way on defense and all that, you could play the cpu with the sliders down and get it without having to fumble around with 2 controllers.

yes i know you stated the 2 controller part. actually no I could get just about every offensive achievment by moving the players instead of doing it in a couple game. but whatever you think. thats why opinions are like buttholes everyone has one.

You can legitimately beat your competition or get a few friend to create tournaments and take turns winning. Please note that if you simulate or give a win to someone in the tournament, the achievement won't unlock

Just a heads up to everyone... this isn't true. I had three people join my tournament, then through the admin menu I gave out wins to everyone, making myself the champion. I logged out and back in to the main screen of the tournament and the achievement unlocked.

robertfee 08-30-2007 01:43 PM

that is confirmed. mine didn't unlock because i didn't go to the little trophy screen. the first time.

robertfee 08-30-2007 01:46 PM

i updated the guide, thanks!

Nick G 42390 09-03-2007 02:40 AM

thanks for the gude i will go back and finish this game up

alucardez 07-31-2008 05:28 AM

ok maybe someone can help me out with this. I played a season and i had enough yards for the season records for both the receiving and rushing yards. yet at the end of the season the achievements didnt unlock. Im wondering if it can be one of two things. My record wasnt that good cause a few games i just simmed and my team wasnt in the playoffs. The other thing is i simmed the last regular season game. Anyone know if either of those two might have messed up the unlocking of those achievements.

The2ndComing792 08-06-2008 06:23 PM

Great guide, I'll try this today.

XxChiCubs32xX 08-08-2008 05:02 PM

Great guide...it helped a lot
