Introduction:
The story is focused on the Skrulls, who are trying to take over planet Earth, and it's up to the Avengers to stop them! (There's not really much more to the story.) This is a tag team fighting game, but you won't get tired from punching and kicking the whole time. If you don't mind standing up, then you could play this game for a couple hours with no problem. The game play is fairly simple to grasp. You'll mainly be moving your arms around and kicking to perform their super moves. Learn to use them effectively to string combos and you will become a pro in no time. As far as achievements go, they are pretty straight forward and you won't really have any trouble unlocking most of them; just the Trial and Character challenges will become time consuming. Some will be easy, others will be a pain.


Step 1: Complete the training challenges
First, head over to Training so you can learn how to play. To get there, start from the main menu, then select; Fight Modes > Challenges > Training. Complete all 5 of those challenges and you should have unlocked;

Counter 10:gsicon:
Dodge This 5:gsicon:
Breaker 5:gsicon:
Impressive feet 5:gsicon:
Supercharged 5:gsicon:
Escapist 5:gsicon:
Combo 5:gsicon:
Tag Combo 5:gsicon:
Student 30:gsicon:


Step 2: Arcade Mode
Next, head over to Arcade Mode and complete all of those matches. If you currently have another person to play with, ask them to play so you can knock out those co-op achievements as well.

After completing Arcade Mode, you should unlock.

King of the Hill 20:gsicon: (Earns 20 UPlay points)
Team Power 10:gsicon: (If you played Co-op)
Power Duo 5:gsicon: (If you played Co-op) This one is glitchy for some.
Symbiosis 5:gsicon: (If you played Co-op) This one is glitchy for some.


Step 3: Campaign
Now it's time to play Campaign. In the earlier fights of story mode, try to win a match without getting hit and one without changing characters. You will find them much easier to complete then. There's only 41 fights to win, so campaign mode won't take you more than a couple hours.

Once you've completed campaign, you should have unlocked;

Here I am 5:gsicon: (Earns 10 UPlay points)
Pioneers 5:gsicon:
Avengers 5:gsicon:
Army of One 50:gsicon:
Fearless 50:gsicon:
Untouchable 50:gsicon:
Earth United 30:gsicon: (Earns 30 UPlay points)
Experienced 20:gsicon:
Closure 100:gsicon: (Earns 40 UPlay points)
Adamantium 50:gsicon:


Step 4: Tournament Mode, Special Teams
Next is Tournament Mode. This is a multiplayer mode only, so it will be an easy to beat. Just start the game up by yourself and defeat all of the other opponents. After that, select Versus Mode and win with every character pair. The pairs required for their corresponding achievement are in the guide below.


Step 5: Trial and Character Challenges
This will be the most challenging and time consuming part of the game. I'd advise trying the character challenges first. There are 20 characters, and they each have 16 lessons. Each person should take about 10 minutes to finish their lessons. So in total, these should take you roughly 3 hours to finish.

Once you've completed all of their lessons, next go and work on the Trials; there are 20 of them. These will really put your skills to the test, so learn to play smart and use your super moves and breakers effectively.

After completing these, you should unlock;

Completist 150:gsicon:
Trialist 50:gsicon:


Final Step: Achieving Highest Rank
You should have pretty much every achievement by now and half way to the Legend achievement. If you are still missing any campaign related achievements, just replay the mission and knock those out the way. You will also be working on your rank as you play. See Legend achievement for more info.


Conclusion
This is a pretty good game if you're into all things Marvel. You might even have some fun while you're going for those achievements. This game can get tedious at times when you're fighting battles, so don't let it burn you out. Some of the Trials may get hard, but with trial and error, you will eventually beat them!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-mWlh4=.jpg Untouchable 50 :gsicon:
You won a fight without being hit in Campaign.

Try to do this early on in campaign because difficulty increases the further you advance. Stringing combos, dodging at the right moments, and making good use of your kicks and breakers are essential to earning this one.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-h2bo0=.jpg Impressive Feet 5 :gsicon:
You performed a Close-Combat.

Perform basic and special moves to fill your kick meter. Once done, simply lift your knee to perform a close-combat move.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-tReoM=.jpgEscapist 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
You performed a counter kick.

When your opponent is rushing in towards you to do an attack, lift your knee to kick them and you will counter their attack.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-qxghA=.jpg Dodge this 5 :gsicon:
You dodged a Super Attack.

To dodge, lean your body to the left or right, just as your opponent initiates their super move. This will be taught to you during training challenges.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/+KNKKg==.jpg Combo 5 :gsicon:
You chained two Super Attacks.

With any character, initiate their first super move, then immediately follow up with their second super move.

See Maximum Combo for more details.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/+UOyuQ==.jpg Tag Combo 10 :gsicon:
You chained two Super Attacks by switching characters.

With your first character, execute their first super move, followed by quickly tagging in your partner and finishing it off with their super move. This will be taught to you during training challenges.

See Maximum Combo for more details.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/+mztFQ==.jpg Super Tag Combo 15 :gsicon:
You chained 3 Super Attacks by switching characters twice.

Similar to the Tag Combo achievement, except you must switch characters twice. To do this, start with their first super move, next, tag in your partner and do their first super move, then tag your first character back in and finish it up with their second super move.

See Maximum Combo for more info.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/+E3koA==.jpg Maxium Combo 20 :gsicon:
You chained 4 Super Attacks by switching characters twice.

During fights, you'll notice there are four poses at the bottom of the screen. The first one will show you how to tag your partner in, while the other three represent how to do your character's super moves. As far as super moves go, the first two will always knock your opponent into the air; they are known as launchers. Depending on the character, their third move will vary between a launcher and a projectile move. Most projectile based moves usually end the combo. See the picture below for more details.

http://i.imgur.com/pOPvp.png

In order to do combos, you must chain super moves together quickly. You can chain bigger combos if you initiate their moves in order from left to right, and by swapping your partners in for additional tag combos.

For this particular achievement; start with a launcher attack, then immediately tag your second partner in and do their first two super moves. (make sure your second super move ends with a launcher) Finally, tag the other partner back in and follow up with another one of their super moves.

Note: Some of the combo achievements have been reported to be glitched. Just keep trying and it may randomly unlock.

Here's a video to show you how combos should be executed.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-me3bw=.jpg Counter 10 :gsicon:
You countered a Super Attack with another Super Attack.

There are certain super moves that can counter others. For example, Magneto has a move where he launches in the air to charge his Magnetic ball. While he’s in the air, you can use someone like Wolverine, who has a special move that will rush in and uppercut him while he’s still airborne. There's a training challenge that requires you to learn this.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/-A-3yg==.jpg Breaker 5 :gsicon:
You used your Breaker to break a Combo.

At the bottom right of the corner, you'll notice a meter start to fill up whenever you attack, or get attacked. When the meter is half way filled, the announcer will say "Breaker," letting you know it’s ready. Simply jump to use your breaker, but make sure to initiate it when you're caught in your opponent's combo.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/-e8PWQ==.jpg Super charged 5 :gsicon:
You used your ULTRA Attack.

First, you must fill your ultra meter. You can do this by performing basic and super moves; the meter also fills when you're attacked. When the meter is half way filled, you'll be able to do a breaker. Make sure you don't use it or else the meter will drain all the way down. Instead, keep fighting until the meter is 100% filled. When you have it, the announcer will say "Ultra Ready." Now simply lift your knee and you will start the ultra move. The achievement will unlock shortly after.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-u-1Ak=.jpgPower duo 5 :gsicon:
You won a battle in CO-OP.

All you have to do is win a co-op match in either campaign or arcade mode. It should pop up during the results screen.

Note: This one seems to be a bit glitchy for some; restart your Xbox and try again. Refer to the video under Symbiosis to see exactly when mines popped.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-lJTJ8=.jpg Symbiosis 5 :gsicon:
You performed a 4x Combo in CO-OP.

The best way to execute this one is to start with a launcher, switch characters and do two of their super moves, (Second move must be a launcher) switch back to your original character and finish with another one of their super moves to make that a 4x combo. Black Widow is a good character to use because all three of her super moves end with a launcher.

Note: This one looks to be a bit glitchy for some. Restart your Xbox and try again.

It may seem a little complicated, so you can check this video out if you need more assistance.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-pfLJo=.jpg Trialist 50 :gsicon:
You finished every Trial.

Trials are various challenges that will put your skills to the test; some will be easy, others will be a pain. There are 20 challenges for you to complete. The first 12/20 trials are already unlocked, while the last 8 will require you to purchase them for 40 points via UPlay. (UPlay can be accessed from the Main menu.)

Note: You will earn UPlay points for earning these achievements.

10 points - Here I Am
20 points - King of the Hill
30 points - Earth United
40 points - Earn "Closure

Tips: Making sure to use dodging effectively and always time them well. String together combos and tag combos for maximum damage. Anytime you're in a jam, use that combo breaker! Often you can start off with a combo breaker in order to kick off a tag combo. Finally, and most importantly, read to the challenge description! That may break up a lot of confusion when you're trying to complete those lessons.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5--9x2M=.jpg Speed and Power 15 :gsicon:
You reached the FAST velocity when doing a Super Attack 5 times in a row.


You must complete 5 super moves in a row with "fast timing." When doing super attacks, you will notice a pop up that will say fast, normal, or slow. Depending on the super move they're currently doing, each character has different timing. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have to execute each move very fast; it's more about how well you time their move. See the video under Adamantium for more help.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-y2p+A=.jpg Fashion 5 :gsicon:
You changed the costume of one of your character.

Costumes can either be unlocked via Campaign, challenges, ranking up, or bought from the marketplace. After choosing your character, simply hover over them and slide your hand to change their costume. The achievement should pop immediately afterwards.

Actiionz 12-09-2012 12:22 PM

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-4dP-A=.jpg Fearless 50 :gsicon:
You won a match without dodging in Campaign.

Simply win the match without dodging to the side and make sure you stay in the sights of the Kinect sensor.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-w8NkU=.jpg Legend 200 :gsicon:
You unlocked the highest Rank.

There are 20 ranks; you need about 550,000 XP in total.

You gain ranks by earning experience points. XP is earned by doing basic moves, super moves, and using great defense. Try to aim for an A rank or better. When you finish Campaign you should be at least half way there to your goal. The fastest way to earn XP is by playing versus mode and making sure you’re the only one playing. When the match starts, just beat up your opponent using combos and tag combos. You will earn more XP if you create longer combos. After the match, skip every cut scene, hit rematch and repeat until you have the highest rank.

Note: The average amount of XP you should earn is about 3,500 and matches typically take 30 seconds to complete. Based on my previous statement, if you had started from scratch, it would take you about an hour and a half of pure boosting or about 160 total matches.

The Video below shows how to boost this achievement quickly.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5--Ms2g=.jpg Experienced 20 :gsicon:
You got 100 000 Experience points.

When playing campaign, you'll earn this halfway through the story. See the Legend achievement for more info.

Actiionz 12-09-2012 12:23 PM

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-gaGgA=.jpg Earth United 30 :gsicon:
You finished the first part of the Campaign.

There are two parts to campaign mode, so you will unlock this one after you complete the first half of the game; which will be 20 fights. There's a progress bar on the select screen of campaign mode, so you will know how far you are. See Closure for more info

Note: This also nets you 30 UPlay points.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-s1Raw=.jpg Closure 100 :gsicon:
You finished the Campaign mode.

Campaign mode is not very long at all; it consists of 41 total fights. There are five cities that contains eight battles each, with one of them having a ninth and final battle at the end.

Tips: Make sure you string special moves back to back for maximum effect. Try to dodge incoming attacks, and use your combo breaker if you're ever caught in your opponent's combo. Once you get the hang of playing, fights typically last 30 to 60 seconds.

Note: This achievement may be glitched, so before your last few fights, I highly recommend that you create an additional save on a separate memory device, like a flash drive. This is so you don’t have to complete the whole campaign over in case this doesn't unlock for you. Also nets you 40 UPlay points


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-kUTBk=.jpg Completist 150 :gsicon:
You finished all character's challenge.

There are 20 characters with 16 lessons each. Every character should take about 10 minutes each to finish.

Character Challenge Tips: Time your moves perfectly; it's not all about how fast you string your moves together, but more relative to how well you time them. Try to aim for a "fast" move selection. (An on-screen text will pop up.) Another thing to keep in mind is if you're too far away to hit your opponent, then you may have to kick in order to move in closer to be able to attack them. In certain sections of challenges, you will be required to avoid attacks; in order to do this, you have to dodge them by leaning to the side. Make sure you dodge their attacks at the EXACT moment they strike you or else it may not count.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-qzzwc=.jpg King of the Hill 20 :gsicon:
You won the arcade mode once.

Simply complete arcade mode for the first time and the achievement is all yours. There are about 10 matches in total and will become a little harder the more you advance.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-j0tIo=.jpg Student 30 :gsicon:
You finished the Tutorial challenges.

A lot of people might get confused by this one, because there is a tutorial mode for you to play towards the main menu; but it's not technically the tutorial challenges they want you to play. To get there, select Fight modes > Challenges > Training. Now complete all 5 of the challenges and the achievement should unlock.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-1WX3M=.jpg Army of One 50 :gsicon:
You won a fight without changing characters in Campaign.

Self-explanatory; when playing one of your earlier matches in campaign, just make sure you win without switching your character. Very easy to do.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-pXZzg=.jpg Adamantium 30 :gsicon:
You obtained an adamantium grade.

Adamantium is the highest possible grade you can earn in a match. The amount of XP needed is 4,000. You earn XP by doing basic moves, super moves, and you also earn xp based on how well you defend yourself. An easy way to earn this is to start a 2 player versus match and play by yourself. When the match starts, just string combo and tag combo super moves together and by the end of the match you should have earned enough for the achievement.

Here's a video in case you needed help.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-6XrlU=.jpg Here I Am! 5 :gsicon:
You won your first battle in Campaign.

Start campaign and win your first match; it's that simple.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-nw5CY=.jpg Team Power 10 :gsicon:
You fired projectiles during the ULTRA attack in CO-OP.

For this one, you must build up your Ultra meter by using Kicks, punches, and special moves. It also builds up whenever you take hits as well. Once the meter is completely filled, simply jump to activate and your character will do the "Ultra" animation. When prompted you and your buddy have to punch at the same time during the "beat 'em up" sequence and the achievement should unlock.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...2/5-gQHLU=.jpg Champion 20 :gsicon:
You won a Tournament. Champion

Tournament mode consists of three to four teams. Win by eliminating other teams each match to advance to the finals. This mode is split screen multi-player only, so that means you can’t play against bots. Luckily you can start tournament mode by yourself and just destroy your opponents to earn this one with ease.

I will get right on that. Thanks.

PoopingFish 01-03-2013 02:18 AM

It is possible to get all of the co-op achievements solo. You can choose co-op arcade and play by yourself.

I played a few fights in co-op so when I completed the first half of the campaign I didn't get this achievement. Do I have to restart the campaign or can I just replay those fights? Anyone know?

FrozenRaptorz 04-15-2013 01:47 AM

Awesome job! I'm surprised more people aren't using this guide. Appreciate the hardwork.

Late reply; if you still haven't unlocked the campaign achievement and you completed more than 20 matches, your save may be glitched. Your best option would be to create a new save (preferably on a second storage device) and play the first half of campaign over. Shouldn't take more than 45 min.
