Successfully dodge and counter-attack and you'll take their weapon from them (A then either B or Y after you've dodged their attack).

Use B to punch them instead of Y when there not close enough to attack you. If
you get your ass kicked trying to dodge them, the best you I found to dodge them without getting my ass kicked was that I stepped away from them then moved towards them
and pressed A immediately to dodge them and take their weapon.

the dancing one is one of the easiest achievements there is in the game.
however this achievement had me shouting random swear words in a combo.
if it aint a stupid glitch, its stepping out of the ring (which u dont), or some knife dude is slicing you up because the target system is total shit.

i'm getting a headache trying to get this achie...FAK!

THIS is HARD. I don't see that pressng B counters them at all. I've gotten to the sixth round without a weapon only to be disqualified for "Leaving the arena". I can't seem to counter or steal a weapon EVER. B is definately the right button?

I actually don't get the counters on this game. They make no sense.

how many rounds do you have to take before you get to the championship?

Comment #12 by Trooper45
Sunday, July 10, 2011 @ 08:36:36 PM

There will be 5 rounds and then a final round. Each round has 3 people you must fight. You have to do this in one play and if you die you have to start all over again. After every fight you'll get a little health back, but if your really hurt, select spectate to sit out a round and get all of your health back for the next round.

Hey kingfatass010, does all of your comments suck as much as your gamer score? Stop commenting on all of them with nothing but stupid bravado!

Back to the point, people does anybody have a good method of doing this? I see many on here but which ones are tried and true? When in doubt youtube is a mouse click away.

@boba fett... two things, first i didnt realize your name was boba fett before @ing you awesome name guy. second, gamerscore doesn't reflect much, other then how many games you've gotten achievements in. you shouldn't bring that into an e-fight.. but i still resepct you because of your name =D

going for this achievement now. tried before, sounds easy enough, but for some reason i feel i will die a few times.

@9 =)

@trooper45 great tip about spectating between matches. i tried out this fighting thing before and would always run out of health in the fourth round.

does having armor help the knife fighter ?

Comment #19 by blinksmilewink

This is insanely easy, I did it in one run. Just counter any guys with weapons and nick them.

Comment #20 by Adar Kane

Yeah, or you can just kick them all to death (so to speak). Fight smart, not hard. Kicking keeps enemies off-balance, and you can get them to a point where they can't do anything to counter it. It's almost a secret weapon since the other fighters never kick you. It's not flashy, but a 15 point achievement isn't worth attempting more than once.

Wow! I thought this would be hard, but as I used hand-to-hand combat alot in the campaign I done it first time. First 3 rounds are simple, last 2 little trickier. Got 945 Gamerscore off GTA 4 now.

Hi guys, I was having so much trouble with this. I followed the suggested video but i still kept dying usually on the last round. I saw this video found by "billnye69" on another forum post and made by "RKingsfield".

The technique this person uses is so much eaiser. Watch the video and you will understand. After watching this I was able to win 1st tim without ever having to go to specatate. Finally! Thanks and I hope it helps you.

To be clear for everyone else needing help, you need to dodge with the A button first, then press B to steal their weapon. Just button mash A until Luis ducks, you may take a few hits first but as long as you have armor you should have enough health

Comment #25 by iFR3SH69
Thursday, July 19, 2012 @ 11:11:17 PM

This one is a bit tricky but i put a couple a strategies together that were listed above and did it in the second try. Only use B to attack, when the weapon rounds begin punch the enemy and tap A and youll duck then push B again and Luis will grab the weapon. From there it wasnt hard at all. Also, if your health is low you can spectate a round and gain a fair amount back and youll continue from where you left off.

I went by comment#23 suggestion and it made things a lot easier:

I thought this one was a lot harder, but after reading these posts seems like it's doable! Thanks!

Comment #28 by Zilgath

You just got to dodge and counter (press A to dodge then B to counter) and as soon as you get the bat/knife you got it!

Comment #29 by M0nster
Sunday, January 06, 2013 @ 09:23:18 AM

Easy achievement once you know how to successfully dodge their attack & take their weapon from them. (Dodge by pressing A & then press B to take their weapon.)

Comment #30 by thatninjaguy69
Saturday, March 16, 2013 @ 01:38:59 AM

If you're not good at dodging like me, try tapping A real fast or just enough times to get it right.

Comment 23's video is definitely the way forward. Struggled with this for ages - tried that method and (fortunately as nearly messed it up in last round) got the cheevo first time. Def the best method

I honestly think this is the easiest achievement in TBoGT; besides Four Play and Gone Down. This isn't hard whatsoever. The countering for the weapons is the trickiest thing to do; but once you get the bat; 1-2 hits near the face should defeat them.

I was completely suffering with this achievement until I saw the method on the video that I found here. It is flawless.
