I just put the link in and it does it automatically for me. Maybe it is my browser?


Do you see the video or just a link there?

Anyway, I feel that the Spy Points is the most important video so here it is. I have about 4 more insignificant ones and I'll do them at my leisure. All this editing is cutting into my gaming time

The last 4 will be:

Hudson Hornet
Tractor Tipping
Jet Setter
Trick Master

While I don't think they need guides, I get a lot of requests on Youtube for stuff I don't think that needs a video. I'm trying to cover all my bases here.

It is your guide Crusty but I would just use the ones that you think the player needs to see instead of reading about it.

I can see the video. Great work shoe. How the hell does your quick start meter fill up so quickly. I never have clicked on a button so fast before in my life.
Also for the airport arena you don't need to turbo jump to the building. Their are pipes connecting the hanger to the building. You can drive on the pipes, that is what I did.

Just a quick question. I notice that some achievements are "do X in X event", is there any way I can replay events after the game? I don't really want to be looking at a guide and playing at the same time for the whole game and I sure as hell don't want to replay the whole game over again if I miss 1 achievement.

I got good at doing it on my first playthrough but using I was using the turbo cheat in the video, maybe that helped?

That's cool about the pipes, I fell off every time I landed on them

You might need to land on the pipes perfectly but whatever is easier.

I hate to even have to post this but could someone please explain to me how is it even remotely possible to gold the Survival missions? The batteries spawn in positions you can really drive to, I take damage from unseen attacks, and the battery points are spread thin. I barely manage to get silver on these and fail right after that. Is there a trick I'm missing out on?

Hey dude dont worry about getting gold on all survivor events. You only need one gold on one survivor and its really simple to do on the first event and even easier if you do it on the first event in free play, as u can set the difficulty to easy. REMEMBER u only need bronze on all mission (except hunter events which u need all gold) but everything else can be a bronze.

Which for a survivor mission thats only one lap!

Hope this helps!

Here is a quick tip for those struggling with the perfect start achievement.

use the turbo cheat it helps fill your power bar more quickly. Was able to unlock eat my dust very easily using the turbo cheat.

TAILGATER 20

Spend 5 minutes drafting cars.

Drafting is performed by driving near the vehicle in front of you. If done properly in the bottom right it will say “Drafting”. This is cumulative, and is very easy and quick if you have a friend to help out with a second controller. I did this myself with two controllers…lol which was very awkward.
Sorry, but there is something wrong here!! I've been drafting all the time behind cars neither on 1 player or 2 .. the meeter wont change.. or it change very very slowly

I think the right way to get this achievement.. you must drift in the blue lines on the ground on turns.. I did it now and it boosted the meeter from 1.6 to 2 mins so fast !

Thanks for the guide and thank you Shoe for the spy pick ups guide. Another completion


Also for those doing the Drafting. I used 2 controllers (myself) and used 2 different McQueens (wanted to make sure they had same stats, any character there is a multiple of would work just as well). I put player 2 up against the wall in front of player 1 then lined up player 1 behind, both turned slightly into the wall. I would hold down both RT's and look for it to say Drafting in bottom corner of Player 1's screen. Draft as long as possible and reset them back up or restart the race. Hope this helps.

A sure way to get the final weapon (the purple metal thing that has the ball on top of your car):

Free Play
Battle Race
Pipeline Sprint

Start the race and when you get to the "?" symbol to receive a random weapon, park there over one of the "?" and keep firing the weapon you get until you get that one...
Then wait for the other cars to show up again, go after them and try to fire it in a straight...

I fired it line up with a car in front of me and one at a side...

Hope this helps

Having a heck of a time with the Hunter challenges. Its hard enough to earn silver, let alone gold. Specifically London. The cars seem so far apart and the ditch/bridges are always in the way.

Are there any other tips?

EDIT: I switched cars and that seemed to do the trick. Used the blue/red rally car.

No problem sir, I remember helping you in party chat, before the video was done. I have a steel trap for a memory...LOL. Your kind remarks are much appreciated. I do my best when writting these guides, and do it all in my free time aiming to please the x360a community. So I'm glad everyone has seemed to benefit from the guide, and has had kind words. Ill keep up the guides w/e I can.

So there is achievements for earning achievements? That's interesting, only times I've seen achievements like those was for earning all other achievements, it's like free achievements.

Anyway, awesome guide, this will help me a lot.

Very important! The second controller shares the profile, therefore anything done with 2nd controller helps with achievements. I blew up my second controller and when it went flying into the air, I got the achievement for being in the air for 20 mins. Also if you put both controllers going in circles driving backwards, it will count double. Between doing it normally it should only take 5 mins.

I got the Trick Master (5 tricks) when an enemy blew me up and i flew in the air spinning. I didn't really have to press anything. So some people may get this by luck! Also, holding down the right analogue will keep you spinning in circles.

For the turbo based achievements, you might as well include the code to remind people it's unlimited if they want! If it's always one, it will be easier.

As for the Roadmap, if you put Step 1: Playthrough, Step 2: 2nd controller, Step 3: Mop Up or something that might be helpful for some before they jump right into the game.

A good tip to make this game shorter is for every event that's not a race or survival, get the minimum requirements for bronze then let time run out. To make use of this extra time, drive backwards. I liked jumping and flicking the right stick so that i landed backwards. Gave me air time, a trick, and backwards time.

One thing I'd love to add, is actually the last survivor mission was by far the easiest.

Clearance 5: Home Security.

You do not have to collect batteries! Just race through using your turbo and every time you hit a checkpoint it auto fills a quarter or so of your shield. Extremely easy, especially considering the "first survivor mission" won't go well for most people who are just beginning the game.

And for the Arena kills, all you have to do is turbo into your second controller. He will die in one hit and you can circle around and hit him again (all in one turbo). This gives you very fast kills. I did it at the airport arena.

--Other Suggestions--

-What are the Tokyo levels? Maybe list them?
-Mention you can drive backwards but if you turn at an angle you will respawn (you mention driving backwards getting certain misc. achievments
-Those hedges in the courtyard level...they are in the middle. So when describing, mention there are 4 statues on each side and in the very middle of the courtyard they will see big bushes designed to look like a car. Hop into them but try to land on the middle piece. That way when you back up you will respawn and see them in front of you again.
-Explain the point system for Hunter missions, people are having problems.
-For side smashing cars, load up a race with a second controller. Now just hold down the analogue stick and it will keep bashing him. You can get around 1 smash every other second (or quicker). I believe I was playing the Italy level, which there are walls at the start.
-For driving backwards, load up an arena event and you can drive backwards in circles without interuption.
-For "Single Survivor Mission" achievement, just tell people to look at the achievement for getting gold on all of them. No need to explain it again!
-The Casino Tour Survivor mission takes you to this island when it leads you on a path with the batteries. Most people should get this on their first lap on this level without realizing it.
-For 100 breakable objects, the AIRPORT ARENA works extremely well. Every cone counts, so just follow the trail of cones until you get it. No need to waste precious time in your Chrome missions! Do this one in the Arena while going for your kills.
-Did you mention you can track achievements in the badges/crests from the main menu under awards??
-For the Spy Points, please mention you must click on the mission to go to Mission Brief, THEN it's on the lower right corner of the world map on the right. I kept trying to log out of my multiplayer expecting it was supposed to be there. Took me literally 5 mins to figure it out!

What you'll want to do is pick a car that isn't extremely fast. Use the turbo cheat of course in the main menu. Now when you play the hunter missions, aim to turb into everything you see. Picking up weapons on the way helps too. The combos are what really help, it multiples your score. For example a lemon car is worth 10 points. If you smash into 5 in a row, you will get 50 points, and times your combo which was 5 = 250. Just keep trying! You'll get luck with a combo soon enough.
