Welcome to Tekken Tag Tournament 2! This game has 50 achievements for 1000 and is the newest Tekken game to hit the Xbox 360. It is also the sequel to the fan loved Playstation 2 original. As in the original Tekken Tag Tournament, matches involve each player selecting two fighters to fight with. You're are able to switch your fighters out at any time, allowing the inactive character to gradually recover some life they might have lost. At certain points, an inactive character's life bar may flash, giving them a temporary boost in strength if they are tagged in. If the life bar of either player's fighters runs out, that player loses the round. If time runs out, the player who has the most cumulative life remaining amongst their fighters wins the round. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 features various modes, allowing players to choose between 2 vs 2, 1 vs 1 or 2 vs 1 battles, options for four players to play in a single match, and various online modes.
Step 1: Fight Lab
The first thing you may want to do is play "Fight Lab" since it teaches you the basics of Tekken. It covers everything from attacks, defensive mechanics, and other special moves. There are five Stages in all and should easily be completable as long as you pay attention and will net you the Combot, Annihilate!, Combot, Engage!, Combot, Move Out!, Combot, On Standby!, and Combot, Return to Base! achievements. After you have done all the challenges in Fight Lab keep doing the Stage 5 Boss until you have enough points to fully upgrade Combot and you will get the Super Combot DX Complete achievement.
In the Stage 5 boss battle you also have the chance to get the Insane Juggler achievement by doing a mid-air combo that does 62 or more damage.
Step 2: Offline Modes
There are several Offline Modes that have achievements tied to them such as Arcade Battle, Time Attack, Survival, Team Battle, and Ghost Battle in the "Offline Mode". Arcade Battle may be the place you spend quite a lot of time at. You are going to have to complete it with 40 different characters to unlock some of the Ending Movies unless you are doing Ghost Battle. Time Attack should be easy with the right team and Survival may be quite tough but if you use Angel it should be easier. Ghost Battle should also prove to be easy.
In "Arcade Battle" pick a tag team and complete the final stage for Preeminent Partner then go through Arcade again in solo to get Solo Warrior. Next, go to "Time Attack" and do what you did with your tag team in Arcade but make sure you finish in under 20 minutes to get Super-Speed Fists. From here go to "Survival" and survive ten rounds to get Proof of Your Existence once you lose after the 10th win. Next, do "Team Battle" with one person on each team and win three times for Tenacious Fighter. Hopefully by now you should have defeated 30 CPU opponents for the Who You Gonna Call? achievement.
Step 3: Online Mode
Time to take Tekken Online where there are quite a few easy achievements as well as ones that are Rank based. The competition online is not very beginner friendly so you may want to practice and find the team you're most comfortable with. Regardless, go into "Online Mode", "Player Match", and do a "Quick Search" until you find a match. Beat that opponent for Tug at My Iron Heart Strings. From here go to "Ranked Match" and change your "Rank Limits" to either a yellow or green 3. Fight your way up to the rank of 1st dan and win another ranked match if it hasn't yet popped for the Be Still My Iron Heart, Tekken Black Belt and Iron Heartache achievements. While going through your online battles make sure you get enough Luck Boxes for Fortunate Fighter to unlock. You have to do these Lucky Boxes in one sitting.
Step 4: Practice Mode & Miscellaneous Achievements
Most of the achievements for the game cover random things such as breaking background objects, doing Tag Crashes, reversals, parries, dealing damage in Practice, or even customizing a character. There are also Offline Ranks you will get as you play more. You will likely get most of these naturally as you work towards other achievements. A fun tip is that most of them can be easily unlocked in Practice Mode or 2-Player Versus. However if you only have one controller then you can still get most of these things in practice by yourself.
By now you should have the Bazillionaire achievement. If not, do the Stage 5 Boss Battle in Fight Lab until you do. Next up, go to "Tekken Tunes" and press on the first thing that comes up. Scroll down once and then press again to change the music then back out to the main menu for Dance to Your Own Beat.
Next go to "Customize" and choose the character you have been playing with the most. Go to "Equip Item" and make your way to the "Upper Body (Other)" or "Lower Body (Other)" items. The items here will have input commands by them. Equip one of them and then back out and there will be a blue box around your character. Choose your desired angle and press and you will be asked if you want to save the picture. It is on "No" by default so move it to and press "Yes" and you will get Touch-Up Artist.
Next go into "Practice Mode" and pick a default Combot and the character who you previously customized a little while ago by pressing once they are highlighted. From there pick the slot with your customized character. Next, pick Alisa and a defualt Combot and on the stage selection screen press to be taken to the "Strategic Space" stage. Now with your default Combot put your opponent up against the wall that says "Danger" on it and press + to hit them through the wall. Press + to reset your position. Now put them behind the railing next to the "Danger" wall and press + to knock them off of the balcony. Reset your position again and move onto the grey/black floor in the yellow square. Once on this, press + to launch the opponent in the air followed by + while they are still airborne to bound them into the floor thus breaking it. Doing these will get you the Renovation Time, Geronimooo!, and Watch Your Step! achievements if you did not already have them. Now with your Combot press + and he will do a homing attack on the opponent. Do this ten times to unlock Stick It to ‘Em. Next, launch your opponent in the air and bound them again like you did with the floor but follow it up with back/down + to make a bound combo. This works best against a solid wall. Do this ten times to get The Original Bouncer.
With those out of the way launch your opponent in the air once again but immediately hit and you will tag out to your next character. Hit the opponent with the character that comes out and you've just done a "Tag Combo". Switch back to Combot and keep doing this until Master of the Tag Combo unlocks. Next do a launcher to your opponent followed by a bound and immediately hitting the tag button. This is literally the same as doing a regular Tag Combo, there is just a bound in it now. This is called a "Tag Assault" and if you keep doing it Master of the Tag Assault will soon unlock. Next up is the "Direct Tag Assault", and all you have to do for this is to press + + and you will automatically do a bound move followed by your partner coming out to continue the combo. Do this three times for Master of the Direct Tag Assault. Finally, go up to your opponent and press + and you will grab your opponent and your partner will damage them while switching places with you. This is called a "Tag Throw". Repeat ten times for the Master of the Tag Throw achievement.
From here switch out to your other character and if you have remembered the command prompt for the item you gave them do this now and Secret Weapon will unlock after hitting the opponent.
