Thumbs up Rubber Bands

This is the method I used to get the achievements for "Frequent Flyer" and "The Greatest Day". Thought it might help someone to actually see it.



Two thumb tacks and three rubber bands. Obviously one rubber band for each stick, and the third rubber band is around the controller holding down the RB. Set er' up over night and woke up to two new achievements!

I hope the good folks from EA see your picture and hang their heads in shame.

Hahaha. Neat.

I don't have anything to hand my controller from. But I might find something to do that with.

I did something similar, but didn't need a rubber band on the right stick. I just held down the right button and hung the controller from the left stick. It went around in a tight circle, but still counted up. I got my 1000 so now this crappy game is going back from whence it came (eBay, that is.)

I agree I didn't really see the significance of adding one to the right stick. I just took 2 rubber bands (one for the left stick angling so it went in a circle and one to hold down the RB) turned off my TV and let it set overnight. When I woke up there it was. I'm so happy that its done I think I'll let it gather dust on my shelf for like...ever. Thanks for the helpful tips too!

I wish I had a plug-in charger like that. My wireless controller kept turning off and I had to turn it back on too many times to remember for him to keep flying in circles for me to get "Frequent Flyer".

Yea my plug n play charger broke. I used bands around the left stick, one around the right stick, and one holding down RB and RT. Then I leaned something on the B button just in case, and the fucking thing still turns off. I wonder if they updated the firmware or something with that new console update that was mandatory.

If I remember right, I only used a rubber band to hold down the rb button. No need to hold the analog sticks since once he reaches the end of the city, he will turn around automatically

this is a bad way to do it! just sit it on a table and fly up with superman and look out across the city (over it). then just tape the RB and he will fly back and forth! it works, trust me. at the edge of the map he will sit there for 2 seconds, but then start flying again! also, turn off vibration in the options to optimize battery life. hope this helps!!

You don't need to fly in circles...if you fly in a straight line he turns around and fly's again...so 1 rubber band around the RB button will do just fine.
