Own the Spot Locations

FRIEND REQUESTS/MESSAGES
I do not accept random friend requests. If you have any questions I am happy to answer them. I don't spend enough time online to boost most games. Normally most guides i write i will have either, rented, traded or sold the game you want help on. Please do not send me random requests as they will just be denied.



Most of the spots are fairly easy to find but there are several which you have to hunt around for. This should hopefully help you find all the spots, then you just have to own or kill them for the achievement.

I wasn't aware of that but either way, these are just where they are located and ways to get to them without fighting with the horrible multiplayer menus.

That's on every single guide I make. I get far too many people contacting me on a regular basis to play every game. I do sell or trade off games after a little while, other times I just rent.

This game is pretty easy though, I don't have a whole lot let to do achievement wise, it's just several challenges which are a little annoying. Skate 2 was a far better game though, there was far more to it than this one. With all the horrible issues related to EA Nation I'm surprised they went though route even though EA games always have major issues with the connections.

That may depend on which way you head. Mine was on the left hand side of the screen while running up to the set of stairs.

I was actually looking for a guide on this, gave up, and found out that little trick in the Guide.

I was missing 4 spots. Go figure.

Just a quick tip for the 5000 pts trick, if you manage to get a 3x after the first big jump, then continue up the other ramp that your facing and do a 540 Christ Air, that gave me över 5000 pts and I think it will give it to you to

Hope this helps
And hope you understand and I'm swedish so sorry if there are any spelling mistakes

You answered your own question, yes they count towards it. And grinds of destiny if probably the hardest spot to earn over 2,000 points on. I have come close several times but an AI skater always gets in the way. All I can suggest is keep at it.

You don't have to kill every single challange in the game to get 80 challanges. I killed everything but two own the spots (grinds of destiny included) and throax crunch and that totaled out to 80.

Nice guide with the pictures and maps from closest spawn points. Very helpful and made finding all unknown spots a quick breeze.

That's on every single guide I make. I get far too many people contacting me on a regular basis to play every game. I do sell or trade off games after a little while, other times I just rent.

Yeah, I can't even rate anything for the achievements related to rating parks, pictures, etc. due to the fact everytime I try to bring up the community parks or pictures it tells me it can't connect to EA servers.
