What Does This Button Do??

Complete Arcade Ladder without blocking (allowed to continue)  

Enter Fight on the main menu and then Ladder. You must work your way through the Arcade Ladder without hitting the block button once so do not try using your X-Ray or Enhanced Specials in case you mess up and block.

Try doing this achievement the same time you are doing "Robots Rule!" and spam Sektor's Teleport Uppercut move throughout.

I'll probably be getting this when i get the achievement for beating arcade mode. I almost never block (that was the main reason why I sucked) at least it's good in this game that there's a block button so you don't accidentally block.

I am very thankful they allowed you to continue, it would have been extremely hard otherwise.

I'm the same way with blocking. I have done it in the past but 90% of the time I never do.

what makes this even more difficult, is that you have to use the block button to perform your "energy" moves... so you have to beat it without blocking and using only regular and special moves. none of the new moves that use your power bar...

as long as you dont block an attack then you can use the block button for the special moves

This one was very easy. I set the game to it's easiest setting and got it in one try without continues.

agree with #7, very easy to do on the easy setting. Also you can block, just don't block any attacks. If you happen to block on accident but no one hits you, it still counts as not blocking for the achievement

i tried this, DO NOT USE (RT) EVER, if you PRESS the RT button you fail.
I wouldn't even use it for the "special" attacks.
Even if you dont block an attack it fails.

I dont even dare thinking about how annoying Shao Kahn will be without the ability to block him

I can officially confirm what many here have said; that you ARE allowed to use special and X-ray moves (I used both several times) and you ARE allowed to press the block button by accident AS LONG AS YOU DON'T ACTUALLY BLOCK AN ATTACK (there were 3-4 times that I blocked by accident, but still got the achievement since I hadn't blocked an actual attack).

Like many mentioned before, you don't have to worry about using enhanced attacks or x-rays, cause it only counts as blocking if you actually block something. I accidentaly used block on shang tsung (projectile wen't over my head so the block didn't do anything). I thought I messed up so I also used block on Shao Kahns spears (with no luck offcourse, cause the spear goes through your block) and the achievement still popped.

I just got the achievement actually BLOCKING while doing the arcade ladder, you can press to block (i.e. to perform a fatality) but you CAN'T block any attack.
