Achievement Guide



MLB2K9Achievement Guide
by Tailz


Welcome to the MLB2k9 Achievement Guide. This guide is a work in progress and will be finished in the next few days. Please be patient with me as i have a career that pulls me away from updating this guide completely and in depth until this weekend. If you have any input please feel free to give your input on any thing and i will gladly post it with credit given of course

150 Grand Poobah - Unlock ALL Achievements

To earn this you must earn all the other achievements in this game.

10 Good things always happen in 3's - Hit 3 Homeruns in a game.

See
The Most Long Balls

20 It's a good day to be a hitter - Hit 4 Homeruns in a game.

See
The Most Long Balls

10 Unstoppable - Score 10 runs in a game.

See
The Most Long Balls

20 Has anyone seen the Fat Lady? - Score 15 in a game.

See
The Most Long Balls

5 Long Balls - Hit 25 Homeruns

See
The Most Long Balls

10 Even More Long Balls - Hit 50 Homeruns

See
The Most Long Balls

20 The Most Long Balls - Hit 100 Homeruns

To attain all the offense achievements are easily done by editing each player's Speed and Acceleration and HR and Power abilities to the max and editing an opposing team of your choice Fielding,Pitching and Speed and Defense to Zero.Then play in a stadium like Fenway Park and put all your batters to hit on left side of the plate and swing away. Loading your team up with All-Stars is also your best option here as well. Both methods will work equally. If you are having issues with the Swing Stick you can change the control scheme to the class style in the options menu.

10 Grab some Pine - Strikeout 12 Batters

See
There's a hole in my bat

20 Pining Away - Strikeout 15 Batters

See
There's a hole in my bat

20 Feel the Heat - Strikeout 25 Batters

See
There's a hole in my bat

20 That guy's not throwing it nice - Strikeout 50 Batters

See
There's a hole in my bat

20 There's a hole in my bat- Strikeout 100 Batters

*Note* I do not have 2 controller's so i am unable to confirm if that will work for this achievement, Maybe someone can confirm this?

To earn this use a pitcher such as Justin Verlander or David Price and edit their pitching stats to the max and edit the Pirates offensive stats to zero and pitch away. You should have no problem getting around 20 K's per game.


20 Sticky Fingers - Steal 4 bases in one game.

See Slippery when Wet


20 Cat Burglar - Steal 6 bases in one game.

See Slippery when Wet


20 Catch me if you can - Steal 25 bases

See Slippery when Wet


20 Slippery When Wet - Steal 50 bases

This is best done by changing the opposing team's catcher Arm and Range to zero and your team
's Speed and Stealing abilities to the max. Putting players such as Ichiro and Curtis Granderson, Grady Sizemore and Carl Crawford will help attain this faster.

20 Flawless - Win a game without allowing any runs.

Change your difficulty to Rookie and play with an All star team against the Pirates. You should have no problems shutting them out. Just keep the ball on the outside of the plate and you should get 15-18 Strikeouts alone and win this easily. I got this on my first try.

30 Unhittable - Don't give up any runs.

Use the same process in Flawless and you should get both of these at the same time.

10 It's Alive - Create a Player

Simply Create a Player in the Main Menu.


10 Man Crush - Hit a Homerun with Tim Lincecum

Playing as the San Francisco Giants on Rookie difficulty play against a bad team like Seattle or Pittsburgh.Change Tim Lincecum's batter ratings to the max in every category. In the lineup section put Lincecum hitting first with you as the Road team so you bat first but play at Wrigley Field. Since Lincecum is hitting first, Swing away and if you don't get a HR restart your game.


10 Chicks Dig the Long Ball - Win the Homerun Derby

Setup a Homerun Derby contest in the Main menu on Rookie and play at the Wrigley Field.
Pick a great HR hitting player such as Ryan Howard against all Right-Handed players. Since you have a short distance (313 feet) you should easily win this.

10 I could have been a Contender - Win a Ranked Exhibition Game

Simply play ONE Ranked online game on Xbox Live. This is a full 9 inning game, HR Derby will not count towards this. Unfortunately there are no lobbies this year so arranging a boosting session is tough. You can try and search Quick Ranked Game at the same time and see if you can find a buddy.

20 Absolute Power- Hit 40 Homeruns in a Season

See There can only be One

20 May the Best Man - Hit 20 Games in a Season with One Pitcher

See There can only be One

20 Centennial Man - Drive in 100 Runs in a Season with One Pitcher

See There can only be One

20 Show Stopper - Record 40 Saves in a Season with One Player

See There can only be One

20 Bicentennial Man- Strikeout 200 Batters in a Season with One Player

See There can only be One

20 Alone at the Top- Play and Win the Final Postseason game

See There can only be One

20 There can be only One- Win the World Series in Franchise Mode

For all the In-Season achievements adjust your sliders to Rookie. Change all the sliders into your favor and the CPU AI to zero in every category. Turn fatigue off and Injuries off and make sure your Stamina is at the max. You must play 20 games. Trade for Tim Lincecum,Francisco Rodriguez,Albert Pujols and Alex Rodriguez. Start Tim Lincecum every game, Since you have no Fatigue he will never get tired. You should get the 20 Wins by your 20th game with him.My advice would be to just enjoy the game and play 20 games on 9 inning's and once you have completed the 20th game to SAVE. By the 20th game you should have at least 33% of the way towards all the achievements. After the 20th game Save your progress and Sim to the World Series and Save. You should get every achievement in one Sim. If you are having issues with the 40 Save Achievement. Simply just play after the 20th game on 1 inning games and get your Closer 5-10 saves and Save again and Re-Sim and you should get it. Once you reach the World Series sim game by game until you win 3 games, Then play that 4th game for Alone at the Top.

60 Team2k- Beat a Team2K member or Beat someone that has beaten them.

This is a Viral Achievement. You just need to beat anyone who has beaten a Team2K Member. Currently there are no Team2k Members so this Achievement is unattainable until March 11th when at that time someone will become a Team2K member and it start spreading like wildfire.

you can't trade cards in this game since you can only unlock 1 of each. Plus there is not trading option in the online section and what not like in 2k8.

You are missing alot of achievements on here. You should wait until you have the guide done to post it. And the rules are that you should have almost 1000 in a game before making a guide. Considering the game just came out, thats not possible.

Its a start but really isnt helpful so far.

You should add whether the difficulty affects the achievments.

Difficulty doesn't affect achievements. You can even have it custom if you want.

Not true, you can't unlock cards unless you're playing on Pro or higher difficulty

Please explain how you put Lincecum 1st in your batting order. Each time I try I can not move the pitcher.

I stated in the description that work is pulling me away to Orlando and i live in West Palm Beach where my Xbox is. I started it with the intention of finishing it but i got called away. I don't really see why this is a problem. The game has been out for a day and people are already complaining. I clearly stated it will not be complete until this weekend. If it's a big deal then just go off and make your own.

I'm just trying to help....

2 controllers or playing a friend offline does not work.... You can't even get the cards unless something was screwed. I was playing my son on PRO and should have gotten alot of cards and achvs. No go.

I assume the cards are the same as last years game.... you can only earn them against the computer, not 2 controller boosting for them.

Problem 1: Some guy wants credit for this guide which he states that you revised. Clearly you have not given credit yet.

Problem 2: The guide making rules strictly say you need most of the achievements in the game to make a guide.

Problem 3: You seem like you havent played the game yet. The cards are way different then your description states.

Problem 4: You are missing alot of achievements. Every secret isnt on here.

Problem 5: I read that you are going away. Then post the guide when its done and when your back.

That is why this is a problem.

Just about to post that tip lol. That was the same method used as last year. I think I may make an achievement guide now since I have all of the achievements except for the card ones.

Just help him out to complete it. Also put more strategies for some of them as that is what really seems to be lacking. Not all the achievements are listed either

Also noticed an Error just now: the description for Unhittable! is for not allowing any HITS you have it as not allowing any RUNS.

And this is me being knitpicky but come on for the steals you list some pretty good guys but don't list Jose Reyes?!?!!!


Any helpful hints on stealing home? Other than turning sliders etc? I tried and kept getting caught!
