If your not able to learn how to use the combos fast enough then this could be quite a troublesome game for you, however even the most skilled of players will have trouble as well on one achievement.


Welcome to Arc System works Blazblue: Calamity Trigger, This game has a total of 50 achievements which requires the use of every character and alot of training not for just ranked matches, but for character specific achievement and a Score Attack Mode that goes beyond Hell.

If your not a common gamer of the Fighting genre then this game could be quite a challenge for you as opposed to the veterans of 2D fighter whom are fighting against time to get all the achievements.

Also note that if the setting in your options are set to Arcade for some reason , it will not unlock any of your achievements, so make sure its set to Console

Step#1: Practice

It is recommended you practice the basics at the very least for a character or two before you start anything else. If you practice long enough you can also get "Your the Best! Around!" but thats highly unlikely on your first training session unless you have complete focus. Theres are 3 misc achievements you can earn in Training: "Cat-a-pult", "Activate Termination Protocol" & "Its Over 10,000!". "Cat-a-pult" can easily be done , just read the method under the guide, the other two are quite difficult, for different methods on those you can view this thread.

Step#2: Arcade

Arcade mode is just like an common arcade mode in any other fighting games, In Blazblue you fight 10 rounds for each character. The only reason your playing Arcade is to unlock everyones astral heat finisher attack. Also set the game to Hell difficulty with 1 round and win your first time around for your "Dante" achievement. Afterwards breeze through on beginner difficulty with every character, and while you play Arcade youll most likely get your achievements for fighting Unlimited Rachel, Haku-men and V 13. However to fight Unlimited Ragna youll have to fufill certain requirements, which can be viewed under "Welcome to the Azure Nightmare".

Step#3: Story Mode

Story mode consists of 10 of the 12 characters when you start, finish them all and you unlock Haku-mens and V 13's story modes. After finishing their stories you unlock the True Ending Story. Each story mode is relatively short if you pick the right options during the cutscenes. A list of options can be found in this thread. And no it is not required to get 100% on everyones story, it is only for those interested in more backstory behind the characters.

Step#4: Score Attack

Score Attack is by far the HARDEST achievement on the game and the only one youll really have trouble with. You go through 12 rounds fighting everyone of the character on a difficulty higher than hell, the last 4 opponents in their Unlimited state. If that isnt bad enough, the difficulty sky rockets against your last opponent who will give you the most trouble; Unlimited Ragna. View this thread for more details to overcome this.

Step#5: Xbox live

Every online achievement is easily boostable, if you don't want to waste to much time then it is recommended that you find a good boosting partner. You dont have to win any matches however you need to get to level 30 and spectate 20 player matches which can easily be boosted. Also you need to play against every character and complete a couple other misc. achievements. To boost ranked matches have one person wait after clicking Custom Match and have the other search for that partner when they click Custom Match.

Step#6: Mop Up

After finishing everything you can go ahead and finish any character specfic achievement and misc achievement like performing a certain move a set amount times. Every one of these achievements are boostable also using a second controller in versus is very helpful as well to make a couple of the achievements alot easier.

In some Achievement methods youll see numbers describing movesets, the numbers are like a directional board

7 8 9
4 5 6
1 2 3

With 8 = ^, 6 => and 9 equals whats inbetween

= D = C = A = B
(Up ) = SP1 (Right ) = SP2 (Left ) = SP3 (Down )= SP4


Blazblue isnt that hard of a game to get 1000 in, they are all just very time consuming which is alright since you have to get 25 hours of gameplay on it anyway. The only actual achievements to give you trouble are V13's 60 hit combo, Hakumens 10,000 damage combo, and the god forsaken Score attack mode. Blazblue however is a fun game so you may find yourself playing it even after you get 1000.
