Maka's Career and Projective Mode Objectives Video Walkthrough
bs000's Complete 100% Goals and Projectives Video Guide (Completist Achievement) Thread

Released on July 18th, 2012 for 1,200 Microsoft Points

Single Player:
  1. Career Mode: You'll need to progress through this game mode and complete all 10 goals on all 7 maps. This will unlock, at bare minimum, 7 achievements worth 65:gsicon: as well as unlock the Projectives game mode, and you are looking at anywhere between 2-4 hours.
  2. Projectives: Once unlocking this game mode, your objective is to complete all 5 goals on all 7 maps. This will unlock the Completist achievement worth 100:gsicon:. Get ready for some frustration, and about 2-5+ hours for this game mode.
  3. Miscellaneous & Mop-up: Once you complete both modes, chances are that you'll have a few achievements left over. Make sure to grab Old School, Manual Master, Aint 'fraid of no ghosts, Race to the finish lines The Best, Around & I dont want no 2 minute man if you haven't been able to get them yet. Together these achievement will earn you 215:gsicon:, and the time to get them really depends on the individual.
Multiplayer:
There is 1 multiplayer achievement in this game, which is easily boosted with a friend, worth 20:gsicon:. Just win a private or public match online!

Conclusion:
Veterans that get used to the controls quickly, and use objective guides when they are stuck can probably get through this game from start to finish, with all achievements, in 5-6 hours. Most previous Tony Hawk's players will take close to 8-10 hours, and new players to the franchise could take somewhere around 12-15+ hours to complete this game. With enough practice and skills, this game can be completed by almost anyone with time, and is a solid skateboarding experience. However, there is little replay value once you get all the achievements, and you might find yourself waiting for some DLC.

------------------------

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-wLwl0=.jpgCompletist - 100 :gsicon:
Completed all Projectives with one character

First off you will need to complete all goals on all 7 maps in Career Mode to unlock "Projectives" mode. Each level in Career mode has 10 goals/objectives to complete. Each level in Projectives mode will only have 5 challenges, consisting of a Sickest Score, Land a High Combo, Collect C-O-M-B-O, Collect 8 Skateboards & Boneless the Magic Bum. Also, each run is only 1:00.

Please view the below videos for a walkthrough of each level in both modes. Click the level to open the video, and see a timelink to each objective in the video description. Also note that most scores are set after the character has been given stat upgrades.

View the complete collection of videos HERE. For an alternate set of videos, please view the following thread by bs000 on our forums HERE.

Video Walkthroughs:
Career Mode:
Warehouse
School II
The Hangar
Mall
Venice Beach
Downhill Jam
Marseille

Projectives:
Warehouse
School II
The Hangar
Mall
Venice Beach
Downhill Jam
Marseille

Upon completing all goals, in all 7 levels, in both modes, you will unlock this achievement, which is arguably the hardest and most involved achievement in the game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-6zMic=.jpgRace to the finish lines - 35 :gsicon:
Reached the end of the Mall 3 times in a single Big Head Survival run

To get this achievement, it is recommended that you use a character that you have almost max stats on, to increase your chances. Also, make sure to select "The Mall" on "Big Head Survival" mode. The goal is to reach the bottom a total of 3 times.

Run 1 - Speed! Try to do this run in under 40 seconds, using minimal unique tricks.
Run 2 - Try doing this run fast as well, but take your time to do an extra grind, grab or gap/transfer.
Run 3 - Points, Points & Speed. You need to try and do a few combos containing manuals, flip tricks and grabs, racking up a quick 5,000 points or more at a time. If you reach 40%-50% during this run, you want to start a combo and look for a jump.

Make sure to grind the last staircase before you reset to the top so that you reset with a low percentage, and don't get caught outside without having just finished a combo.

View my video for more reference:


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-uIIBE=.jpgI don’t want no 2 minute Man - 35 :gsicon:
Held a combo for 30 seconds after the time is up in Marseille

For this achievement, you'll need to be playing in "Marseille" in Career or Projectives Mode. Make sure you have a character with good Grind and Manual Balance. You'll first need to kill the clock down to zero, and once the timer runs out you'll need to start a combo and hold it for at least 30 seconds to unlock this achievement. You do not need to land the combo.

The best place to get this is to start by doing a slow grind around all the bowls, until it becomes very hard to balance, then switch to a flat land manual, and hold that for as long as possible.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-hJ0Tc=.jpgThe Best, Around - 35 :gsicon:
Got 500,000 points in one run in Venice Beach

There are basically 3 ways that you will be getting all your points. Viewing the video works best here, as outlining specific combos can be quite difficult through text.


1. From the start, go forward and beginning grinding on the fence, doing flip trick to increase multiplier. Continue the combo onto the roof, and then manual down and use on the the ramps.
2. After line #1, go the opposite way, using grinds, manuals and flip trick. Special grinds will really help here! Continue all the way down this line and then transfer over onto the small boxes, getting off with a manual and finishing with a big spinning grab trick.
3. You can also use the halfpipe where Line #2 ends to rack up some easy points in between combos.

Using the above combos, with some patience, should grant you a score well over 500,000 points, and will unlock the achievement during gameplay.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5--KM3s=.jpgAin't 'fraid of no ghosts - 35 :gsicon:
Collected all pellets in one combo in Hawkman in The Hangar

For this achievement, you will need to collect all the pellets in one combo. You will need a well levelled character.

You'll want to start with the manual pellets in front of you from the start, and then grind over the halfpipe. Make sure to manual out of the grind, collecting the ground pellet, and shooting yourself up the quarter pipe high enough to connect with the grind. Continue the grind to the lower level, and jump off to the left side aiming for the manual pellet (2nd room now). You will need a lot of speed here, but if done correctly, hold the manual up the quarter pipe, jumping to connecting with the grind on the higher pipes. Now grind around the corners, jumping off at the red pellet and finishing with the final 4 manual pellets.

View the video for the best idea of what to do.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-4qy+g=.jpgGap Skiing - 35 :gsicon:
Completed the 100 Ski Jump gap in Downhill Jam

First, unlock the Downhill Jam course in Career Mode. Now, make sure you've used some of your money to upgrade your character's speed and air, at least a little. Make your way down the course, and keeping in the middle, until you shoot up a ramp onto a rock. Now make your way down the rock, onto the ramp and jump at the top of the ramp. If you make it far enough you will get 4 total gaps including the Ski Jump - 100 Gap. Make sure to press the A button if you get the "Big Air" warning. Once you land it, you will unlock the achievement. If you screw up, restart your run and try again.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-ztJ3U=.jpgManual Master - 20 :gsicon:
Performed 15 manuals in one combo in School II with Rodney Mullen

  1. Use Rodney Mullen
  2. Unlock School II
  3. Max his Manual Balance
  4. No Cheats!
Now you'll have to just a 15 manual combo in place to unlock this achievement. You can start off and do the first 5-6 without even checking your balance. However, after that, you will need to start adjusting more and more often, and it'll become harder and harder. Just make sure to always jump into your next manual when the character is completely levelled out, and with a little bit of time and luck you'll get it.

Also, when going from manual 14 to 15, try to make it so that the bar is travelling towards the green side when you jump, so that when you land the 15th manual, it will automatically land the trick for you.



Note: You can get this achievement by using Rodney Mullen in an online match, and therefore not needing to progress in Career Mode.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-3rOs4=.jpgBringing home the bacon - 20 :gsicon:
Unlocked Officer Dick

To unlock Officer Dick, you must complete all 10 Objectives in Marseille, in Career Mode, using any character expect Tony Hawk. Once you complete all the goals, and complete the final objective on the level, you will unlock the achievement, and gain the ability to use this character. You can use your avatar to unlock this character.

View the video for a walkthrough on how to complete each objective individually, using the times listed beneath to skip ahead or go back:
0:16 - Sick Score
2:25 - Secret DVD
2:50 - Collect S-K-A-T-E
3:41 - 5 Competition Medals
4:25 - Grab Trick Over Lil' 4
4:37 - Nosebluntslide 3 tables
5:10 - Destroy 5 Speakers
5:55 - Cash Locations


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-0N3+Y=.jpgOld School - 20 :gsicon:
Scored 200,000 points without performing a single manual in one run in Warehouse

It is recommended to use an upgraded character which will make this much easier.

I was able to get this achievement in 1:20 using the halfpipe. Just set yourself up, going back and forth in the halfpipe making sure to do No Comply + Spin & Grab moves. You should get anywhere from 5,000-20,000 for every move you do. If you get to the point where your not earning enough points, just set up a grind combo using the quarter pipe that lines the back wall, jumping as often as possible and doing kickflips to build multiplier. This can help you run the clock past the 2:00 and get an extra 40,000 points.

You are allowed to set-up a private match with a friend and boost this very easily. Choose "Big Head Survival" to make the matches go even faster. Find Players HERE.

Alternatively, you can get this legitimately by playing with others online, and winning a match.

Looking forward to the completed guide.

thenutman69321 07-19-2012 03:54 AM

Looking forward to the complete guide as well. Just my 2 cents about the difficulty though, obviously it's gonna vary wildly from person to person but I think 6 is lower than it should be.

Unlocked Officer Dick

To unlock Office Dick, you must complete all 10 objectives in Marseille with any character except Tony Hawk.

More info to come.


^^^^^
Does that include the avatar option or does it have to be one of the skaters?

littlejay 07-19-2012 05:38 AM

for Manual Master you can just press A and Down and UP really fast and you will jump out of the manual before it has time to lose balance. The normal way is kinda tough :p

ktilla23 07-19-2012 05:49 AM

I really think you should change how hard the game is and time it takes. I did it in only 5-6 hours. I would put it to 6-10 hours and change the difficulty to a 2 if you played the old ones and 4 if you haven't.

Damn you must be good as hell at TH games (or maybe I just suck). I've played every TH game except for Ride and Shred and I consider some of these achievements pretty hard specifically Completist and to a lesser extent The Best,Around. I probably put in around 8 hours so far and I've just started the projectives. Honestly I think a good chunk of people might not be able to get Completist no matter how much time they put in.

I'm always open to input. If we have a few people agree on a number, I'm always more willing to change it.

You have to realize, I'm trying to give a good representation for normal gamers coming into the thread looking if it's worth their time. I can do Trials Evolution with my eyes closed, but I didn't give it a 2/10, because I know most people won't find it as easy.

Yes, TH veterans will find certain achievements easy, but in the end, this game from the moment you pick it up from the first time, to the last achievement will take you more than 6 hours.

And for those who haven't played TH games in the past, this game is a 7/10.

Ok fair enough, you are probably right about it taking way more than 6 hours if you never played it before. And yes i wouldn't give it 2/10 either i would only give that if you played the first two to death like i have (LOL). But i still think putting 20 hours is a bit excessive.

Expressbishop 07-19-2012 06:58 AM

Took me about 11 hours to 100% and I would consider myself a TH veteran but some of the stuff was really frustrating.

Everybody should be able to complete it as long as they have the patience and keeps trying but it will take time.

For this achievement you can actually do it in a private match. Just did it my self with someone else from the trading thread, and worked like a charm.
We chose to play Big Head Elimination, since its the quickest to end. :woop:

you best be trolling.

Looking forward to see this one completed. Already completed half of the levels with all objectives.

Keep up the good work!

MothMan 07-19-2012 03:20 PM

Here's a video I put together showing how to complete every objective in Marseille and unlock Officer Dick. Hope it helps!


Red Testament 07-19-2012 03:30 PM

For the life of me I can't seem to do a No Comply to help me get the 200K point achievement in the Warehouse map. I can get about 100K doing various big air tricks and specials, but it would be nice if I can link them together. I seem either go flying straight out of the half pipe trying to do it or not even trying I seem to do it.

Make sure to start from a neutral stick, press Up, let go, then press A and let go, all in rapid succession, as your character is 25%-50% up the quarter pipe. You are probably doing it too late. Try that!

For the warehouse, I found it best to jump over the pipe, through the secret room, and doing a 180 or more airman and land a grind on the rail on the other side and keep doing combos with flip tricks all the way to the end.

D0ctorNick 07-19-2012 04:23 PM

To Red Testament: I had the same problem and got it down with an hour of practice, but you can also trick through the secret room, or chain grinds/tricks/manuals pretty easily (with high stats of course).

Great guide Maka and if you'd like here's a link to IGN walkthrough for people who can't find some of the cash. I know I couldn't >_< Just search the other levels this is VB. http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/07/18...through-part-5

Can anyone show me a video or guide on getting C-O-M-B-O in the hanger on projective.. I've been trying for hours and my god.. this is the worst combo collecting I've ever seen.. You don't have enough speed nor balance to get O. Last Projective till 400 btw.

Ravenous IE 07-19-2012 04:37 PM

Great guide man, very useful for people especially having the Video help. :)

Is there a Guide with hidden Skateboards & Homeless Location?

the real evanio 07-19-2012 08:12 PM

Note for "Completist":

You must finish all levels 100% [all 10 objectives] and then you will unlock "Projective Mode". This mode has another 5 objectives for each level. Compete those, and the Achievement is yours.
