American Wasteland

American Wasteland Achievements


Completed the game 100%!

You do not need 100% completion per se, but rather you will have to do the following:

  • Complete story mode - See "Party at the Ranch!"
  • Collect all Skate Ranch pieces.
  • Complete Classic Mode - see "Classic Mode 100%"
  • Find all gaps - This is the hard one. You must hit all gaps, either in story mode, free skate, classic, or a mixture of all 3. There are some gaps that you need to get in story mode, in the skate ranch. This is by far the most time-consuming part of the game. For help with the gaps, try

Finally! got it :) I was a little confused why I didn't get the achievement after finding all the gaps so I went back and got my final missing stat point (up at the start in the mall). Still didn't get the achievement so started up my story mode save game and ding! 100 points achievement awarded.
Such a great feeling :)

Here's what i did to 100% it: complete all story mode missions (including skate ranch pieces), then complete all classic mode goals (you don't need to pickup stat points cuz they don't count toward 100%), then free skate mode to start high score run, host your own lobby in Xbox Live in each level (you don't need a partner to help ya, just start session), and find all gaps (which is time consuming but somewhat easy).

Once that's done, go to story mode and save. The cheevo should pop when you saved. Although I'm not sure that playing Live in levels counts toward 100%.

I hated hitting all the gaps, especially the final gaps for each different level they were super hard and needed super speed...and luck.

i had one Q i never really answered and worried until the end of my gap hunt. "Do i need to complete all modes of difficulty?" NO, i had to cross my fingers at the last gap cuz i am no good at some of the goals on sick. so hope this helps someone with the same Q that i had. btw just save if ur in freeskate and load story it'll pop up. no worries. ;)

I'm going for this. The only achievements I haven't been able to get are the ones that are glitched, the games online servers are down(DAMN EA), or its online since I'm not on gold at the moment. But this seems like cake compared to some of the other achievements I've gotten.

the gaps is the hardest because it doesn't tell you where it was until you got it

This is fucking SHIT. I have done EVERY thing possible in this game, including everything everyone has said in this forum. And STILL NO DAMN ACHIEVEMENT. Fuck you Activision. Fuck you EA.

Just fond a great solution if you have done everything and still no achvy.

If everything IS completed and you should have the achvy but it never popped, start a new story mode. Plat through the new story until you get to the part where you have to get a haircut. Walk into the shop and it the achvy should pop( I just stood there for a few seconds and it popped for me).

Hope this helps someone;)

For anyone who is curious, you can use the perfect rail, perfect manual, and moon gravity cheats while doing the gaps. You'll still get the achievement. The gaps were the very last thing I did. The achievement popped as soon as I left free skate after the last gap and went to continue story mode. If you're still looking for gaps type Sulig89 in the YouTube browser and look for his American Wasteland videos. His gap videos were really helpful.

I am stuck on this achievement, only because I have one gap that no matter how many times I try I can't get it. It's the No Wallplanting! Gap, I've done that so many times, and still it never said I got it. Any tips?

I got the achievement for finishing the game, and i got the notification for collecting all the pieces. anyone have an idea whats going on with that? i went to every town and there are no pink stars anywhere. also, does anyone know if the difficulties matter or not?

Hitting all the gaps is pretty dull, I think I'm gonna take a long break from this, or I'll screw it.

I found a good method to get this faster: Watch the gap videos on your phone next to you, so you can play and watch the videos simultaneously. I think I'll get this achhievement soon. :)
