Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Achievements

Mythical Millionaire

20
Earn 1,000,000 points or more in a single play of a song in a Power Challenge (QP+)

This achievement can be a pain if you are not to good at Expert difficulty, especially on Guitar as this is the easiest to get 1,000,000 on since a lot of songs contain a lot of chords. To get this achievement you need to score 1,000,000 points in a song by yourself in quickplay+ Power Challenge. The easiest song (so far) that I have found is “Aqualung” by Jethro Tull, it’s a long song with lots of chords and the start and end of it are relatively slow. So select this song and go to Star Challenges and select the first option which is Power Challenge. It will now ask you to choose your powers (chose wisely as you can only have 2), I find that Star Power Nova+ & Multiplier Extender+ are the best as Multiplier Extender+ boost you to 6x multiplier instead of the usual 4x, then when you use Star Power your Multiplier turns to 36x thanks to Star Power Nova. The best thing to do in this song is collect the first 3 Star Powers and hold on to them until the long stream of chords that are nice and slow, use star power for the first time here. By the time Star Power runs out you should be well over half way there. From now on use Star Power where you think is best and when you have a 6x multiplier so you can raise it to 36x. If all has gone well you should end up with well over 1,000,000.

You can also earn this by using the same tactics above using Star Power Nova and Amplifier, this gives you the chance to play it on easier difficulties (but a better run may be needed).

You can also do this on other songs that are big chord fests from imports or DLC but this song is one of the only on disc songs that is very easy to get it on.

American Pie (Imported from Band Hero) with Multiplier increase and Star Nova

What difficulty are we basically talking about to accomplish this in Bat Country, Charismatic?

Do Fury of the Storm....EXPERT BASS with Star power Generator
and Star Power Nova

I got 1,677,422 with a 96% accuracy

This song is way easier to score high on than Bat Country or Black Widow.

If you're good with chords, Interstate Love Song on Expert with Star Power Nova and (forgot the name)"6x multiplier instead of 2x during active Star Power"

I managed this one pretty easily on Losing My Religion on expert using Star Power Amplifier and Star Power Nova.
As long as you can hit the notes for star powers, the Amplifier generally carries you onto the next set, as you get 4x the star power, filling the bar, whereas the Star Power Generator only gives you 10% every ten consecutive notes (meaning you would have to hit 100 notes for a full bar).

I just got 100% on flyleaf on hard guitar with the star power generator and

I really suck at Hard & Expert (cant make the switch between blue/orange)
Is there a song you can play on Medium for 1m points?

Comment #18 by Toams07
Sunday, March 06, 2011 @ 10:45:05 AM

EDIT for my earlier reaction:
Play Aqualung on Medium with Star Power Generator and Star Power (guitar)
I git 1.2m

Thursday, March 10, 2011 @ 10:13:41 AM

just about did this on def leppard pour some sugar. i just went through power challenge songs until i got it, no need to boost it i think since you'll be going through lots of power challenges to get the 2000 stars anyway, most likely you'll pick up 1mil a few times

Sunday, April 24, 2011 @ 02:04:24 AM

i did Machinehead with Star Power Generator and Star Power Nova. You can also do it with I Know What I Am i'm pretty sure. And they are easy songs

@8 Also just did Flyleaf with suggest settings, 99% on hard and didn't even hit 600k, spent most of the song in SP...

Ok got there: Aqualung 95% on hard with just over 1,022,000 as final score, was sight read, thus prob why its a tad low. Usual powers,SP generator + and SP Nova +.

Playing guitar on expert using Star Power Generator and Star Powwer Nova I got over 1mil on multiple songs easily including the Flyleaf song, Psycosocial, 2 or 3 Nirvana songs (DLC)... If you don't have the DLC or can't play well enough on expert then try playing Psychosocial on expert bass. It's fairly easy and will easily get you over 1mil. If you have the Metallica DLC I got 2.1 mil on the song Am I Evil.

For anyone out there looking for a good song on the drums to do this on, use "I'm Broken" by Pantera and play on Expert or Expert+ while using Star Power generator and Star Power Nova. The song is actually really easy. I messed up at a few parts and nicked 1,250,925. That is with 98% accuracy.

I got this achievement on my old account using Star Nova and something else. I can't remember but I know I got 98% on Bat Country to get it. I didn't realize it was an achievement until it popped up.

Comment #40 by paulsack
Saturday, July 20, 2013 @ 10:41:37 PM

i got 100% on "im not okay" expert guitar and scored well over 1 mill using amplifier and nova

Comment #41 by ZAGOLICIOUS
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 @ 01:20:08 AM

Easiest way:

Music- Losing My Religion
Instrument- Guitar
Level- Expert
Powers- Star Power Amplifier & Star Power Nova

Comment #42 by Sergmasterlic
Wednesday, October 09, 2013 @ 02:52:51 PM

@41 Either that, or Star Power Nova & Multiplier Extender (but in this case, you need to FC the song).

This was way easier. Actually, the song that i played and got the achievement with was From the Blue/Point of no Return, but that song can be a real pain if you are not too good, just try Losing my Religion, its the most easy way.
