Introduction:
Welcome to Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, Activision's 9th title in the Tony Hawk franchise. This game isn't the most polished game in the world, and you'll see it when you play the game. However, there's no glitchy achievements. There's only a few online achievements, but they can be completed by boosting them. This game's achievements will try your patience to the end, but persistence (and cheats) will help you achieve the 1000.

Cheats:
There's a few cheats that can be implemented within the game, but only a handful that are useful. Using the following will help immensely:

  • Perfect Manual = STILLAINTFALLIN
  • Perfect Rail = AINTFALLIN
  • Super Check = Booyah
  • Unlimited Focus = MYOPIC
  • Unlimited Slash Grind = SuperSlashin
  • No Bails = AintFallin


Walkthrough:
By completing the story of the game, you'll earn a total of 15 achievements for 245. You'll earn other achievements along the way, too, like Thug Check Distance and High Score Video. By completing the story, you'll earn enough money to unlock All Skater Items for unlocking all Skater gear. You can also earn All Skill upgrades in the process. You'll need to complete all Hardcore, Rigger and Career missions to unlock the Uber Goals. Complete all three to unlock the All Uber Goals achievement. While going through the rest of the story and unlocking everything, you'll have a chance to Mod all Spots throughout the game.

Mop-up:
This is the bulk (and hardest part) of the 1000. With all this mop-up, you'll need take the time to find all cash spots for Cashtastic and finding all the gaps within the game for the All Gaps achievement. Also, you must complete all Line goals, Skill goals, Hawk-man challenges, Photo goals, and Video goals to SICK. You'll also need to complete all story goals to Pro. By doing this, you'll unlock all achievements for AM, PRO and SICK. This totals up to 20 achievements for 500.

Online:
The online for this game has been dead for a long time. You're best bet for looking for boosting partners is by searching in the Achievement Trading Thread. Two achievements, 5 out of 5! Online Domination and Win $100,000 in wagers online are rather short and only require minimal effort to unlock. You'll need at least 3 other people in your game to unlock 5 out of 5! Online Domination. You only need one other player for winning $100,000 and maxing out bets can make the achievement go by fast. 1000 online games played is a different story. You can finish games fast and complete games with one other player, but it will take a lot of time to finish 1000 matches.

Conclusion:
The achievements in this game are not something to be laughed at. The game is a tad glitchy at times, but nothing that affects achievements. The online is dead, but other players can be found within the Achievement Trading Thread. This game may seem to ask for the impossible at times, but with patience and perseverance the game can be completed. Good luck.

 

[x360a would like to Yunder for this Roadmap

You need to find and complete every gap in the game. You can view the gaps and which ones you found and didn’t from the My Goals part of the menu.

Sick all Classic40

Complete all of the Classic goals at Sick difficulty. Classic goals are the arcade machines you find in the cities. They are the old school type Tony Hawk challenges where you have 2 minute runs to do 10 tasks. For AM you need to do 6/10 tasks in however many runs, for PRO you need to do all 10 in however many runs, and for SICK you need to do all 10 tasks in one 2 minute run.

Complete all Hawk-man Goals at SICK. (1) 

Complete all Hawk-man goals are Sick difficulty. Hawk-man goals are the ones that Tony Hawk assigns for you to do. They are random types of goals and meet the sick requirements needed for all of them.

High Score Video10
Make a Video worth 20,000 points 

To get this achievement you need to go into the video editor, and the easiest and fastest way is to film 2 clips about 30 seconds long in the same area, and then when you are done with the second one, go to change edit or create edit...when you do this you pick what clips you want in the video, pick for example Freedom Plaza 1 and Freedom Plaza 2 and then go over to the submit video and it will tell you how much your video was worth. If you have trouble go to the video editor tutorial and press submit video.

All Skill Goals10
Complete all Skill Challenges at AM ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Skill Goals”

Pro all Skill Goals15
Complete all Skill Challenges at PRO ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Skill Goals”

Sick all Skill Goals40
Completed all Skill Challenges at SICK. (3) 

GENERAL:
To obtain this achievement, you must complete each Skill Challenge to SICK. There are a total of 45 Skill Challenges and 9 DIFFERENT types of Skill Challenges. They are as followed:

  • MANUAL - 11 Challenges total
  • GRIND - 9 Challenges total
  • WALLPLANT - 4 Challenges total
  • STALL - 2 Challenges total
  • DISTANCE - 5 Challenges total
  • HEIGHT - 4 Challenges total
  • WALLRIDE - 6 Challenges total
  • ACID DROP - 1 Challenges total
  • NATAS SPIN - 3 challenges total

CHEATS:
Completing each and every challenge to SICK is no easy task, and will require a lot of practice and patience. You can tip the odds in your favor by inputting some cheat codes. You CAN unlock achievements with cheats activated, but you will not be placed on the leaderboards. There are multiple cheats that are essential to your cause. They are:

  • STILLAINTFALLIN --- (Unlocks Perfect Manual)
  • AINTFALLIN --- (Unlocks Perfect Grind)
  • MYOPTIC ---(Unlocked Unlimited Focus)
  • SUPERSLASHIN --- (Unlocks Unlimited Slash Grind)
  • AND AINTFALLIN --- (No Bails)


TIPS:
1) Remember that you can use your Rigger pieces. Using pieces that can give you an extra BOOST will help immensely with the Wallride and Distance challenges.
2) Most Skill challenges can be done in one combo. Use the cheats to unlock unlimited grind and manual to make this happen.
3) The GRIND skill challenges are the only challenges that require you to do all challenges in ONE GRIND. Losing your grind will cause the challenge to stop.
4) Practice. Practice. Practice. Seriously. Most of these challenges WILL make you frustrated. Plan out a route before attempting a challenge. (Grind and Manual)
5) Have a maxed out skater. Do try to attempt these challenges until you have completed the story and maxed out each one of stats and skills.

Thug Check Distance5
Knock Thug 150 feet. 

During Dustin’s Skate Check episode you learn how to check thugs. I’m pretty sure this is accumulative, which is why its point value is so low, because it’s almost impossible to not get it. Just keep checking the thugs in the first part of the Episode by pressing .

All Skill Upgrades10
Upgrade all skater skills. (1) 

You need to upgrade all of the skater skills by going into the pause menu then my skater and then skills-stats. When you learn skills you start off with the first upgrade. And there are 2 more upgrades for each skill. The first upgrade for each costs 50 skill points and the second costs 100. You get skill points from completing challenges, upgrade them all for the achievement. A faster way of doing this is by entering the cheat NEEDSHELP into the cheat entry and you get 50 points every time you enter this(Thanks DFILL). But make sure you have already loaded your career before doing this or the points wont help you. There is a total of 1350 points required to max out all of your stats. So if you did no challenges, then you would need to enter the code in 27 times. It's annoying but it works.

All Skater Items20
Purchase all Skater Gear including unlocked items. 

In the skater lounge there is a small door that says edit skater. In here you will find the skater gear you need to purchase. The gear that needs to be purchase falls in the categories of glasses, hats, shirts, pants, shoes, left and right accessories, and miscellaneous. The deck stuff is all free. You won’t be able to buy everything at first, as you unlock items as you complete episodes. After I completed the Stevie’s Nail the Manual episode I bought the new unlocked items and I got it. This doesn’t really help though as you can do the episodes in whatever order you’d like. Just check back regularly and check for new gear that can be purchased.

All Photo Goals10
Complete all Photo goals at AM ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Photo Goals”

Pro all Photo Goals15
Complete all Photo goals at PRO ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Photo Goals”

Sick all Photo Goals40
Complete all Photo goals at SICK 

Complete all Photo goals with sick ranking. For the Photo goals you will be asked to do certain tricks and then snap shots of them in the camera zone by clicking the . For AM you will be asked to do really simple tricks, for PRO the tricks are still somewhat reasonable, and then for SICK you will be usually asked to do ridiculous tricks that seem impossible to do with that kind of ramp/air. Just use your environment and stuff outside the goal area to help get speed and air to pull off the hard tricks.

All Film Goals10
Complete all Film goals at AM ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Film Goals”

Pro all Film Goals15
Complete all Film goals at PRO ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Film Goals”

Sick all Film Goals40
Completed all Film Goals at SICK 

Complete all photo goals with sick ranking. For Film goals you will be asked to do certain tricks while you are being recorded. They usually require you to do certain tricks like say nail the trick into nail the manual while scoring X amount of points. AM usually requires just to pull of the trick, PRO requires usually the trick and a certain amount of points, and then SICK is usually just added amount of points or added onto the trick combo.

All Line Goals10
Complete all Line goals at AM ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Line Goals”

Pro all Line Goals15
Complete all Line goals at PRO ranking or better. 

See “Sick All Line Goals”

Sick all Line Goals40
Complete all Line goals at SICK (1) 

There are a total of 13 Line Challenges in the game. To complete all of these challenges to a SICK rating, you need to hit the appropriate combo on each Line. There are no short-cuts in trying to earn these combos. You MUST earn all your points on the entire line. The game will not count your points if you start a combo and then start the line. Cheats don't void the achievements in this game, so use those to your advantage. The following cheats are the most useful:

  • STILLAINTFALLIN --- (Unlocks Perfect Manual)
  • AINTFALLIN --- (Unlocks Perfect Grind)
  • MYOPTIC ---(Unlocked Unlimited Focus)


Each Line Challenge will start when you trick on the first piece. Each Line's combo has a different combo score for a SICK rating, so keep practicing and you'll get them. Here are the scores you must earn on all 13:
