Superman Returns Achievements

Heavy Lifting

Lift 10,000 Tons Throughout The Game  

The I-Beams found in construction sites are obscenely heavy, and work like a charm. The way to do this is to grab one of them, and then find a section between two buildings with a good amount of space.

Have Superman's back to one of the buildings, but 5 or 6 steps in front of it. Every time you press to throw the beam, he pulls it back first. If you are close enough to the building, the beam will hit the building and you'll just drop the beam. Now you just have to rapidly tap and he'll keep dropping and picking up the Beam at a good rate. You'll also have to take 3 or 4 steps forward after a good 10-12 drops, because each time he's moved a little closer to the wall. Keep this up for a half hour or so, and you should get it in no time.

This achievement is very easy.
When you're transported into WarWorld (at the beginning of the game), each disk stacked in a tower weighs 30 tons.
There are 42 disks, you can raised 1260 tonnes per game.
When it is done, hit the enemy and he will disappear... for coming back with 7 clones!
Stop to play, wait to lose and try again.
At the eighth time, achievement will be unlocked (7-8 minutes for a game and around 1 hour to get it).
Be careful, you can't save : you must do it in one time!

I used the I-beam method in metropolis. Industrial area has lots of 11000lb beams, I found it fastest to just pick up and drop with B and repeat. Although it's slower than using a wall to make you drop the beam and means switching between A and B buttons, I found it went wrong far less, so I spent less time getting the angle right for dropping it or finding new beams cus i broke the old one. Took me about 2 hours, but I'm sure I'd have gotten it quicker if I'd used this method from the start. probably not much between the methods so use whatever you find best.

For anyone that has already been playing and beaten the warworld level I would recommend that you wait until you have gotten the rest of the achievements and than start a new game and get this achievement in warworld as you will save yourself a lot of time compared to using the beams

in the industrial area ull see a big boat docked (used in shipping) and ull find 6 trailer containers. each one weighs 16,500 lbs. after u toss all 6, just fly around and come back for them to respawn itll be a little time consuming, but atleast you wont have to start a new game.

easiest way IS the beginning of the game in warworld just like comment #1. pick up each disk while having the guy attack you and even after you get them all pick up the pieces for that little extra weight lifted. rinse and repeat about 8 times...all in all it takes about 2 hours to do this....DONT EVEN BOTHER TRYING TO GET LEGIT IN GAME
