I wonder if this counts air throws as well as special move throws.

most likely not. each character has an actual forward and backward throw they teach you in the tutorials

I managed this on 2 player fighting my brother, took ages cause I lost track of who I had done it for cause I was just going random fighters. Got it on the same fight I got the fatality achievement :)

How Exactly did you do it ?
Did you finish the fights or as soon as you did the throws returned to player select ?

I tried it on Pratice Mode and wasn't able to unlock it.
Gotta try doing it while playing Ladder Mode then...

we got it playing 2 player vs with different characters...and yes you can exit the fights. however for the fatality one, you have to finish the fights for it to count.

To get this its easy, it is forward & backward throws for ALL "PLAYABLE" characters.
This means "hidden" aswel as they also become playable.
Jump "Throws" are NOT throws. They are classed as "Unblockable"

So its only FORWARD & BACKWARD throws

You should just finish the match anyway if you have to get everyone's fatality too

If you have done all characters and still no achievement. Try Shang Tsung's throw again. His is a little different from the others in that RB is his reverse throw and --> + RB is his forward. Everyone else (i think)is RB for forward and

You have to do it with every available character including Cyber Sub-Zero. Hit the RB button near them then hit RB + Left or Right to do it. The two moves will be different (usually throw in different directions) so just keep spamming it a bit to make sure. Once the match is over, Pick another character and repeat.

confirmed: having trouble? go to 2 player team battle and select 2 characters at a time instead of 1 in 1v1. do both forward and backward grab with both character and the second the damage finishes with the last one required, you'll get the 'chievy. hope this helps
