Welcome to Real Steel! The Xbox LIVE arcade version of the film with the same name. The achievements in this game are very straight forward and mostly quite easy. You may have to boost to unlock the online achievements as the online community of this game is very underpopulated. This game is available from the Xbox LIVE marketplace for 800msp and is just over 200mb, for those with limited harddrive space.

Step 1: Single player
Your first step is to complete the 5 tournaments that make up the single player portion of this game. Completing these 5 tournaments will earn you a guaranteed 40 from the 3 story related and thus unmissable achievements. There is then 1 more achievement that is earned offline, which is to customize your robot. This can be earned after any of your fights during your single player tournaments and can still be earned from the main menu after at least 1 successful fight and thus is also unmissable as you can essentially earn it at any time.

There are 3 more achievements that can be earned either, in an online ranked match or against the CPU during single player. It would be advisable to boost these with a boosting partner, online, as they can be somewhat tricky to earn against the CPU, but are still within the abilities of the average gamer, nonetheless.

Step 2: Online
The online achievements from this game are earned mostly from winning a certain amount of matches. You should consider finding a like-minded boosting partner and take it in turns letting each other win, until you both have 100 wins, thus unlocking the 4, 'Win x amount of online matches' achievements. You can also attempt to earn the aforementioned 3 achievements, that can be earned either offline or online, as they are easier unlocked if you have a partner allowing you to win the match in the achievement's specific way. These 3 achievements are, Pacemaker, Arm Destroyer and 1 Round KO.

There is 1 more achievement that needs to be unlocked over Xbox LIVE, which is, Big Money. Be aware of this as you go for your 100 online wins and set 1 of your matches up to cater for this achievement, which again, is better done with a boosting partner, that will allow you to win with ease.

So a simple and relatively easy set of achievements. You will likely be spending a good few hours boosting the online wins, but you would be spending a lot longer trying to win without a dedicated partner. Try to enjoy your fights, as this game is very entertaining and certainly worth the 800msp.

Underworld Champion10
Complete all UNDERWORLD STAGES in MATCH MODE.    (1) 

UNDERWORLD is the first single player tournament that you will play through. There are 3 stages to UNDERWORLD and you will need to defeat 4 robots in each stage, that will get progressively harder. You will be upgrading your own robot during this time, however, so you should still be able to win each fight without too much trouble.

To unlock this achievement you will need to defeat all 12 opponents over the 3 stages. After your final victory against your twelfth opponent, the achievement will unlock.

WRB Champion20
Complete all WRB STAGES in MATCH MODE.    

To unlock the WRB stages, you will first have to complete the 3 stages of UNDERWORLD. There are 2 stages of WRB, each with 4 opponents to beat, totaling 8 opponents. After you have defeated your eighth opponent, the achievement will unlock.

Robot Engineer10
Customize and save a robot to a garage.   

When you first play the game, you will be prompted to select 1 of 3 different types of robot. You cannot customize anything immediately, except for the color, but this does not count towards the achievement. You will need to win your first fight, after which you will have unlocked the 'Retro Arm' that you can then apply to your robots right arm. After you have applied the arm, or any other customization, you must then back out of the 'Assembly Mode' until the game saves your data, at which point, the achievement will unlock.

First Win10
Win your first fight in the UNDERWORLD.    

This is earned after defeating Scrapbot, who is the first opponent that you will face in the UNDERWORLD. Simply beat him and the achievement will unlock after your victory.

100 Total Wins on Xbox LIVE30
Win 100 RANKED MATCH on Xbox LIVE.   (11) 

To unlock this achievement you will need to win 100 ranked matches over Xbox LIVE. This will be very time consuming and it is recommended to find a partner to boost these with. If you decide to do this alone, without the help of a partner, then it will take you a considerable amount of time longer, as you will struggle to find matches online, with the games dwindling population.

After your 100th victory, the achievement will unlock.

Big Money30
Win an Xbox LIVE RANKED MATCH against a robot with TBR x2 or higher than you to earn a huge prize.   (9) 

TBR stands for 'Total Battle Rating' which is a representation of a robots strength in battle as shown as a number, next to your name. To unlock this achievement, you will need to beat an opponent over Xbox LIVE, that has a TBR rating/number that is at least twice as high as yours. This is of course a difficult task, that you would need to be very good at the game to accomplish, so for the averagely skilled gamer, you should attempt this with a boosting partner, who will be letting you beat them with your half as good robot.

Win a match without completely depleting your power a single time.(Excludes Local Multiplayer Mode)    

Underneath your health bar in the lower left corner of the screen, you will find smaller bar, entitled 'Power Bar'. This is representative of the amount of power/stamina of your robot and if it is depleted, you will not be able to attack until it has replenished itself, after a few seconds.

To unlock this achievement, you will need to beat an opponent without your power bar ever being depleted. You will know it is depleted as you will not be able to attack for a few seconds and the power bar will be flashing. Keep watching your power bar as you are fighting and when it gets close to depleting, do not throw any more attacks and instead, block and doge while the power bar replenishes. If your power bar does deplete, the achievement will be void and you must attempt it again in another fight.

You cannot unlock this achievement with 2 controllers, while in local multiplayer. This would be easier obtained by boosting it online with a partner.

Arm Destroyer20
Beat an opponent robot by destroying both of its arms.(Excludes Local Multiplayer Mode)    (2) 

To destroy your opponents arms, you must hit them in their arms, specifically. To aim for your opponents left arm, you must attack with and to aim for your opponents right arm, you must attack with . You should aim specifically for their arms for the entire fight, so that you win by destroying their arms, instead of just depleting their health. This is easily done in your first single player fight in the UNDERWORLD against Scrapbot, if you use the power specific robot. This has to be done in either single player or in an Xbox LIVE Ranked match.

If you struggle to do this against the CPU, then you should consider boosting it online with a partner, as this cannot be unlocked with 2 controllers while in local multiplayer.

1 Round KO20
Win a match in a single round.(Excludes Local Multiplayer Mode)    

To unlock this achievement, you must defeat an opponent within the first 2 minute round of a fight. You need to knock the other robot out, or destroy both of its arms or head to defeat it. You should just keep hitting your opponent, relentlessly hoping they will go down quickly. If you make it to the second round of the fight, the achievement will become void and you must attempt it again in another fight.

This would be easiest to unlock online with a boosting partner, who would not move his robot, allowing you to punch it freely, until it went down. This cannot be unlocked with 2 controllers while in local multiplayer.
