Achievement Guide

Skate Achievement Guide
By: Birky
There are 44 achievements with a total of 1000 points.
Amateur Racer
10 Reach Amateur status for online races

To get this you must get 100 experience points for racing games. Normal races are usually easier. You get more points for winning then losing!

Amateur Trickster
10 Reach Amateur status for online trick events

To get this you must get 100 experience points for trick games. I suggest doing Jam session or spot challenge, as they are usually quickest. Games of s-k-a-t-e usually take forever, unless youíre good. You get more points for winning then losing!

Pro Racer
30 Reach Pro Status for online race events

To get this you must get 300 experience points for racing games. Normal races are usually easier. You get more points for winning then losing!


Pro Trickster
30 Reach Pro status for online trick events

To get this you must get 300 experience points for trick games. I suggest doing Jam session or spot challenge, as they are usually quickest. Games of s-k-a-t-e usually take forever, unless youíre good. You get more points for winning then losing!

Icon Racer
100 Reach Icon status for online race events

To get this you must get 600 experience points for racing games. Normal races are usually easier. You get more points for winning then losing!

Icon Trickster
100 Reach Icon status for online trick events

To get this you must get 600 experience points for trick games. I suggest doing Jam session or spot challenge, as they are usually quickest. Games of s-k-a-t-e usually take forever, unless youíre good. You get more points for winning then losing!

Online Addict
25 Complete 50 online game sessions

Finish 50 online games, you donít have to win. You will most likely get this while going for the Icon Trickster and Icon Racer achievements. If you are going for the Enduring Icon achievement you will defiantly get this along the way.

Try Online
5 Join an online session

Simple as that, just join any online game, any kind. You donít have to finish it or win.

Voyeur
5 Watch an online session on SkateTV

To get this go into your backpack. Then go to the xbox live tab. Now go to community. Next select Ďskate TVí then select a session to view. Once you join as a spectator you will receive this achievement.

Exhibitionist
5 Upload footage to skate.Reel

After you do something cool (it doesnít really have to be coolÖ) Pause your game select replay editor. Edit your clip as much or as little as you want. Then press Y and select either save replay or photo, It doesnít matter. After this it will ask you if you want to upload this and say yes. While it is uploading you will get the achievement.

Skate's Top Model
5 Upload 6 photos to your skate.Reel

Follow the steps from Exhibitionist but do it six times and only with photos. You donít have to upload them to the web, though. Just save them.

Skate Celebrity
10 Reach 20 reviews on an uploaded footage or photo

A single video of yours must get 20 reviews, not views. Go to these links for help boosting them with other site members.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ad.php?t=39136
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ad.php?t=24047


Warming Up
5 Win 3 consecutive ranked online matches

Hard to do since you canít boost very well in skate, when you do ranked it puts you in random rooms. You canít do this in player or private matches. After you feel you are pretty good then select the game type you are best at and try to win three in a row.

En Fuego!
15 Win 6 consecutive ranked online matches

Same as ďWarming UpĒ but twice as hard!


Enduring Icon
20 Earn 2000 total online EXP points

This is one of the most time consuming achievements. If you get first place in a game you get 10-16 EXP depending on the number of people in the room. The better you are the shorter this will take, but still will take very long time. I suggest concentrating on one game type you are good at and play only that. This way you will lose less and less.

You're a winner!
20 Win 20 ranked online events

Can be any combination of the games. Example: I win 16 games of trick games, 5 of skate, and 11 of spot battle. I also win 4 games of race games. Achievement unlocked.
Will be obtained on the way to doing the other online achievements. Again, pick a game you are good at and concentrate on it.


Host with the Most
5 Host an unranked online session

Donít even have to play a game. Just host a private match; while it is loading the level you will get your achievement.

Fashionista
5 Buy 50 items.

You don’t need that much money to get this. Hats are $15-$30. So if you buy 50 hats then it will only cost you about $2,200. Total in the game you get over $150,000. So don’t worry about this if you are low on cash in the beginning.

The Graduate
5 Complete all the tutorials in Career Mode

Do the opening boring tutorial… flick it, tweaking grabs, rolling rehab film. After that there will be four other simple challenges around suburbia you need to complete. Don’t worry about missing them, you need to beat them to move on in your career and will be pointed towards them. The four are manuals, Scoring a line, advanced grinds, and pumping. On your map a light bulb indicates a tutorial.

Footy=Footage
5 Save a Replay in Career Mode

After you do something cool (it doesn’t really have to be cool…) Pause your game select replay editor. Edit your clip as much or as little as you want. Then press Y and select save replay. You don’t need to upload the clip to the web.

Afternoon Freeskater
5 Spent 5 hours Freeskating in Career Mode

You will eventually get this in your career. All you have to do is be playing your career and not in a mission. It is a running total of your time, so you don't have to do this all at once. If you are bored of the game and just want the achievement then just let your guy roam around for the rest of the time needed while you sleep or watch TV.

On Your Way…
5 Earn 1 Milestone

To view all of you milestones go to your backpack and select logbook. Then go to records, then milestones. It will show you the 27 milestones. The first one you get is very early in the game. Most people get 1 minute of air time first, but sometimes people get owned a spot first. It doesn't matter what you do first.


Access San Vanelona
5 Unlock 1 Location

You will get this after you complete the goal "Jubba Jingle Jam." This is the contest right outside of the JJ shop.


Headhunter
5 Beat 1 Pro Skater

There are many pro skaters to beat. After you complete all the boring begin goals you all of a sudden are good enough to skate with about ten pros! Just complete any one of their challenges. You don’t really beat them at anything.


Flow & Style
5 Do a 10,000 Point Line in Career Mode

This is very easily done at the X-Games. After you finish the mega jump event you can go up there on your own. While I was on this little part of the arena I got a 30,000-point line, so it’s not to hard. Also many people do this in the sewer area right next to the community center. This is difficult to do if just started playing, but if your good it’s simple to do it there as well.

Rocket Man
5 Perform a Rocket Air in Career Mode

Very easily done at the X-games mega ramp. Pretty simple off of any quarter pipe or pool if you’re decent. If your stance is goofy: While you’re in the air pull the right stick down then hold the right trigger down and then the left trigger. At the end of these events you will have all three still held. Do this all at once fairly quickly. If your stance is regular: While you are in the air pull the right stick towards you then hold the left trigger and then the right trigger. At the end of these events you will have all three still held. Do this all at once fairly quickly. You must land to get the achievement. You can wipe out a fraction of a second after landing and still get the achievement.

Am Skater
10 Complete a Shop Film to become an Amateur

You will get this after you complete the goal "Regs shop film." All you do for it is score 1,000 points in 30 seconds. This is very easy to do.


Hooked Up
15 Earn all four sponsorships

Earned after having a board sponsor, shoe sponsor, truck sponsor, and wheel sponsor. You must pick your sponsors at a skate shop.


X-Games Gold
20 Earn Gold in both X-Games events

After you are on the cover of the skateboard Mag then you will get a call saying that you can be in the X-Games. There is no rush though they don’t start without you! There is two events, the mega ramp (witch is insanely fun) and the street best trick contest. Both are fairly simple. You might need some practice on the street one just to get to know the good lines. For the mega ramp you are rated on a scale of 0-100 by your trick. To win the contest you usually need to get 87 to out due everyone else.

Pro Skater
20 Earn a Pro Model Board

Earned after beating a pro’s challenge and accepting them as your sponsor. You can then use there boards. Earned early in the game.


Without Footage It's Fiction
20 Beat all Film Challenges

Beat every film challenge in game. This is pretty hard to do. You must complete every single filming session for Thrasher and the Skateboard Mag. After you finish the main story line there will still be a couple films left for you by pressing the right bumper. Some of the thrasher shoots in a no skater zone are brutal. I suggest doing them at the hospital or at the spot where Big Black and Rob’s challenge is. Some of the films are also very easy to do off of the Mega ramp at the X-Games (big score ones).

King of the Highway
20 Beat all Races

Complete all the death races. There are not to many of them. Here is some tips for beating them all.
  • Go through the race once or twice not trying to win just so you are familiar with the route.
  • Almost always be holding the A button down.
  • DON’T WIPE OUT OR GET HIT BY CARS. You will lose.
  • You will gain the most ground on your opponents on the straight down segments.
  • For really tight turns take them while you hold the left trigger down to do a power slide. You will lose some speed but will not fall.
  • Don’t get frustrated. Some of these are pretty hard. Just keep trying until the AI get slammed by a car and lose 10 seconds.
  • Don’t touch cars, pedestrians, or your opponents. Just by touching them when you are going fast makes you fall, usually.
  • You don't need to hit all the gates. You only actually HAVE to hit the red one. The only reason the gates are there is to give you more time to get to the end. So if a gate is out of the way you should usually just skip it.
Contest Pro
20 Beat all Contests

Beat all of the mini contests for thrasher and the Skateboard Mag. Also beat all the storyline contests. The last one is the Danny Way’s skate park.

Photogenic
20 Beat all Photo Challenges

Beat all the photo challenges in the game. A black or red camera on your map shows them. The black ones only appear on your mini map and not your full map. You will either get this just before you complete the story or after it depending how the order you do the goals. This includes the photo shots for magazines and the shots that advance you closer to getting in the magazines.

Uninsurable
25 Complete all Medical Milestones

To get this you must break 100 bones total and break each individual bone 10 times. A good way to break bones is to go off the X-games Mega ramp and jump off to the right side while holding a Christ air until you fall. Also rolling down hills into a car head on will break a lot of bones.

Year's Best
25 Get the cover of The Skateboard Mag

This is the last photo challenge for the Skateboard Mag. Just play through the story.

Skater of the Year
25 Get the cover of Thrasher Magazine

This is the last photo challenge for Thrasher. Just play through the story.

Halfway There
25 Complete 50% of all Milestones

To view all of you milestones go to your backpack and select logbook. Then go to records, then milestones. It will show you the 27 milestones. To get this you must complete 14 of them.

Tricked Out
25 Perform all Tricks in the Trick Book in Career Mode

Do every trick in the game. There is lots of tricks and you won’t get this for a while. There are basic, medium and advance flip tricks, grinds and grabs. On all nine of these you can press A on it. It will then bring you to the list. From there you can scroll down the list for even more tricks that you HAVE to do for the achievement. When one is highlighted it will show you how to do the trick. For the advance grabs and flips an easy place to do them is the X-Games mega jump. You will probably do all the grinds by accident some time during the game.

Urban Legend
30 Own all the spots

Some of these are really hard. If you can’t seem to get it then try a different angle. Some spots have different ways of approaching them.
Here is a link to a map of all the spots.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ad.php?t=39491
Props go to murkadose on the map.


Keys to the City
30 Unlock all locations

There are 8 spots in the game to unlock. You can see witch ones you need still by looking at your map. They are shown as an octagon with a stop hand in the middle of it. The last you get will most likely be Danny Way's skate park.

Fanboy
50 Beat all the Pros

As the game progresses there will be more pro challenges. Yes there are a lot, and yes some are very hard. Practice, Practice, Practice…


Keep Playing
75 Beat all Challenges

Beat every challenge in the game, skate games, filming sessions, photos, competitions, and much more. Complete EVERYTHING. This is very time consuming and difficult.


Master Flicker
100 Earn all Milestones

To view all of you milestones go to your backpack and select logbook. Then go to records, then milestones. It will show you the 27 milestones. To get this you must complete all 27 of them.

Make sure you scrolled down each section. Rocket Air is actually on the list, so I think you might not have scrolled down each part.

Well have you done the pro challenge to get into the Plan B warehouse? I am going to start a new game today and find every area. I will have a list up within a day or two.

Also some other changes to the guide,
-To get icon trickster and racer you need 600 EXP not 500, it was a type-o
-Afternoon freeskater is done in your career not in freeskate from the main menu
-Added more tips to 'King of the Highway"
-Added more help to "Uninsurable"
-Added more detail to "tricked out" so there is no more confusion about scrolling down

Also, If you see any errors or mistakes in the guide just tell me and I will change it. Thanks.

not sure if anyone else has a problem with the X Games mega ramp but my friend did and he is pretty good at the game and this worked for him, if you do a rocket air 720 on the first jump into a christ air 900 on the 2nd one you will get about a 96 point score form the judges

I'm getting this [Skate] in a day or two, after I played the demo I was like I have to get this. I also played Proving Grounds, and wow.. EA did a great job with their first skating game, Personally, I hate Proving Grounds, I played both demos a lot. And I think Skate has better graphics, and better gameplay. Proving grounds had souped up Xbox Graphics IMO, they weren't great, and it's easy as hell to do tricks in it, anyone could accomplish a hard trick in it. Thanks for the guide tho, I will be using it a lot soon =D

A couple things to check...

Have you scrolled down all NINE of the lists to see the tricks?
Do you have the complete all tricks milestone?
If yes to both of these bu still no achievement I suggest doing every trick once again, especially the harder grinds. You can do all the flip/grabs of the X-games mega ramp in about 10 minutes.

Uninsurable - Useful Bone Breaking Moves
When you're using a steep hill, I recommend going to Regs, then going down the street until you enter a tunnel. This tunnel is really long, really steep and has a lot of fast, on-coming traffic.

Ribs and Skull
After you've beaten the X-Games Megaramp Challange set up a marker (hold LB and press down on the d-pad) at the top of the Megaramp. Head down the ramp and off the end. Then when you get flung up the quater-pipe you'll get tons of air. Hold a No-Foot Air (Hold LB+B) until you hit the ground. You should do HEAPS of upper body damage.
Usually you'll pick up an upper arm and a hand as well. After you've recovered head back up to the top of the ramp to repeat (hold LB and press up on the d-pad).

Ankles and feet
Find a steep hill with a reasonable amount of road traffic and set a marker up the top (hold LB and press down on the d-pad). Get a run-up at the top of the hill to build some speed, then as you go down the hill enter into a Coffin (Hold RB+LB+B). When you have enough speed find a car and ram straight into it (try and hit it as straight as possible to break both ankles and feet at once). After your injury has registered and you're back on your board go back up to the top of the hill (hold LB and press up on the d-pad).

Pelvis
This is a very hard bone to break. You probably wont do it by accident. Again we want to find a steep hill with a ton of traffic and mark it (hold LB then press down on the d-pad). Now at the top get a run-up to build speed, then switch with a revert (hold the left stick to the left, then quickly spin downwards 180 degrees). As soon as you've spun do a double grab (LB+RB). This will put you in a position where you're basically skating butt first into on-coming traffic.
After your injury has registered and you're back on your board go back up to the top of the hill (hold LB and press up on the d-pad).

I can't think of any specific moves for breaking shoulders, arms, hands and upper legs but the downhill-to-car technique will apply. You'll usually make contact with the upper arm or upper leg if you just go down hill into the front of a car, but it's a bit random. Remember, if you notice you keep breaking a bone on one side of your body, and you want to start breaking it's counterpart on the opposite side, do a revert to switch. If you set a marker while in switch mode the marker will spawn with you already in that position.

Complete all the death races. There are not to many of them. Here is some tips for beating them all.
  • Go through the race once or twice not trying to win just so you are familiar with the route.
  • Almost always be holding the A button down.
  • DONíT WIPE OUT OR GET HIT BY CARS. You will lose.
  • You will gain the most ground on your opponents on the straight down segments.
  • For really tight turns take them while you hold the left trigger down to do a power slide. You will lose some speed but will not fall.
  • Donít get frustrated. Some of these are pretty hard. Just keep trying until the AI get slammed by a car and lose 10 seconds.
  • Donít touch cars, pedestrians, or your opponents. Just by touching them when you are going fast makes you fall, usually.
  • You don't need to hit all the gates. You only actually HAVE to hit the red one. The only reason the gates are there is to give you more time to get to the end. So if a gate is out of the way you should usually just skip it.
holding A while going downhill will actually slow you down. to get the most speed downhill do a double grab by holding down LT and RT. and if you want to make sharper turns hold down the trigger corresponding to that turn. for example: sharp turn right=hold down RT. sharp turn left=LT

Well you go even faster if you hold down A and both the triggers partially held down. You guy will crotch, but not grab the board, while is kicking and going faster.

kicking while going downhill only appears to make you speed up, but you actually lose speed when his foot hits the ground.

I guess it is more of an opinionated topic. Either way I'm sure it does not make to much of a difference and the races are pretty easy to win anywise.

yeah as long as you use the triggers at the right moments you will be okay. but online every little bit of speed helps. i guess anyone having trouble should try both and whichever method works better for them use it.

Do the opening boring tutorialÖ flick it, tweaking grabs, rolling rehab film. After that there will be four other simple challenges around suburbia you need to complete. Donít worry about missing them, you need to beat them to move on in your career and will be pointed towards them. The four are manuals, Scoring a line, advanced grinds, and pumping. On your map a light bulb indicates a tutorial.

FYI, You just need to complete the Nollie and Manual tutorials to complete this achievement. I skipped the beginning tutorial due to playing the demo. Finished the mentioned tutorials while I was bored and unlocked the achievement.

Well if you read the whole thing you would notice that I did, in fact mention you need to complete the manual tutorial along with three others. The nollie goal is a mission, not a tutorial. It DOES teach you how to do a nollie but you don't need to complete it for this achievement.

You donít need that much money to get this. Hats are $15-$30. So if you buy 50 hats then it will only cost you about $2,200. Total in the game you get over $150,000. So donít worry about this if you are low on cash in the beginning.
just a little thing you can add. When you get your sponsorships just get every item off them that you can for free and that will count towards it.
