There are 47 achievements with a total of 1000 points.
Welcome to Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3! This is the fourth installment of the Marvel vs Capcom series and contains 47 achievements for 1000. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is an updated version of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, featuring 12 new characters, 9 new stages, Heroes and Heralds Mode, and updated gameplay. The gameplay of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is largely similar to that of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Players select a team of three different characters to fight a one-on-one battle. The game utilizes the same tag-team feature as its predecessor, where a player may choose to swap between their three characters at any point during a match. The goal is to use various attacks to exhaust the opponent’s health meter and defeat the entire enemy team or have the most cumulative health when the timer runs out. The game also uses the simplified, three-button control scheme of undefined light, medium, and heavy attacks introduced in the previous installment. While the core mechanics remain the same, a number of aesthetic changes have been made in the update, including new character and stage select screens.The game's HUD has also been redesigned along with many returning characters receiveing balancing changes. These include new moves and animation tweaks for certain characters. In addition, Galactus Mode has been added to the game which can be played via pressing + + while Arcade Mode is highlighted. You will then be pitted aginst 6 teams of 3 and you must defeat them all as Galactus. A required ending for an achievement can also be obtained through completion of this new mode.
Arcade (Offline Mode)
Just like the previous game you will be spending quite a bit of time in Arcade Mode if you are going for the full 1000. You must complete the game with all 49 characters for Waiting for the Trade and view their endings for the gallery which will be one step to getting Comic Collector. A lot of move and combo achievements can be gained in Arcade mode and if you turn Online Request on, you can even switch to Xbox Live if another player requests a game with you. The achievements that can be gained in Arcade Mode/Xbox Live are:
Here we go again! Mission Mode has returned and with even more trials than the previous game! This is where the game starts to get really challenging as you must complete 10 missions for each of the 48 characters performing combos and special moves. They get progressively harder but usually the first 6 or so missions can be cleared with relative ease. A helpful tip when attempting some of these missions is if you ever make a mistake you can hit + to reset the mission to original position. This is the main aspect of the game that can trouble some players from getting the full 1000 if they're not familar with the fundamentals of the game. If you ever get frustrated with a mission it's always best to try another character mission and come back to it later! The DLC characters Shuma Gorath and Jill from the previous game can also help with this achievement as they have their own missions as well. The achievements that can be procured in Mission Mode are:
A fair amount of miscellaneous achievements that can be unlocked in Arcade can be unlocked in Xbox Live as well. This means that you can boost them with a partner if you are having trouble getting them against the computer. There are also achievements for playing online for a certain amount of hours this time. The following achievements can only be unlocked online:
These achievements can be gained across any mode in Ultimate. Player Points can be gained by fighting in any mode. You must fight in every stage and also complete the gallery which requires a mix of Arcade and Mission Mode completion.
And there you have it, another re-hashed achievement list for an updated Capcom game. As you can see with all the new features added to the mix, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is and definitely was everything the original Marvel vs Capcom 3 game should have been! The game now feels much more balanced and is loads of fun trying out the new characters that have entered the fray. Online achievements are now even easier to boost and all the Arcade and miscellaneous achievements simply take time to unlock but no serious degree of skill. The 30 hour achievements for both online and offline mode make this 1000 a lengthy one, however you will work towards those while obtaining other achievements. The grueling Mission Mode and all 480 of its combo trials is where the difficulty factor comes in but don't get too discouraged! If you were able to do 320 missions last time you can surely do them again and with the exception of the extra ones. Completing Shuma Gorath and Jill missions can also give you some leeway. Please refer to the Vesper and Hyper Guides to input, buffer, cancel, and button mash your way to that "Marvelous" 1000 once again!
|Unlock all achievements.||(19)|
The common staple achievement for just about every Capcom fighting game. This will unlock upon obtaining all other 46 achievements in the game. Anybody who has completed Marvel vs Capcom 3 to the full 1000 should also be able to obtain this.
|Waiting for the Trade||50|
|View all endings in Arcade mode.||(3)|
For this achievement you must unlock and view all 49 endings for all fighters by completing Arcade Mode. Arcade Mode is a single player mode where you fight through 6 normal battles and then a final battle with Galactus totaling it up to 7 battles. You must beat the game with all 48 characters to view their endings and get this achievement. You must also obtain Galactus' ending by means of a Game Over against him or completion of Galactus mode. Galactus mode can be accessed by going to Offline Mode, highlighting Arcade Mode and pressing + + . The downloadable characters, Shuma Gorath and Jill do not count towards this achievement so skip them if you already have them downloaded. The MAIN ACTIVE character who is in control when Galactus is defeated will have their ending shown. So for example, if you are in control of Nova but you call Hawkeye to assist and the assist move finishes off Galactus, then it will be Nova's ending that you will receive. Also whoever is active when you finish off Galactus with a Crossover Combo Finish() will still be the one who will have their ending shown.
|The Best There Is||10|
|Beat Arcade mode on the hardest difficulty.||(10)|
Turn your difficulty to Very Hard after you have picked your lineup and progress through the game. You get unlimited continues so don't worry if you die at any point. You want the timer to be at its lowest, so you can simply run out the time while you are chipping out the enemy CPU. You also want the damage to be at its highest for when you face Galactus, as the sooner you can kill him the better.
Using these two characters with either Sentinel or Hulk will be good for immense zoning, spamming Hawkeyes Quick Shot (Greyhound) (+) while using Dooms Hidden Missiles assist will keep enemies away while chipping them out and it you decide to you can combo Hawkeyes Gimlet (+) Hyper after a hit confirmed for additional damage almost guaranteeing your victory for the round.
|Saving My Quarters||10|
|Beat Arcade mode without using any continues.||(2)|
For this achievement you must complete Arcade Mode without having all 3 of your characters be KO'ed (use Continue). After you have picked your 3 characters, change the Arcade Mode settings to the following:
When facing Galactus and his Heralds, I would try to dispose of his Heralds as soon as possible while not using any of your Hyper Meter. Try air juggling and remember that they share a life bar so you don't need to hit them both together. When Galactus arrives, double jump and hit him in the head as much as possible. This will avoid most of his attacks. When his energy is about halfway down, you should have enough for a Hyper Combo so call in both your partners together ( + ) and unleash hell with all three. Do NOT do this is Galactus is about to crush you or unleash beams from his fingers though.
|The Points Do Matter||20|
|Earn 400,000 points in Arcade mode.||(3)|
Please refer to High-Score Hero for more information in obtaining this achievement.
|Earn 500,000 points in Arcade mode.||(23)|
You must score 500,00 points in Arcade Mode in order for this to unlock. During Arcade Mode at the top right you will see your Score this score will increase depending on certain factors during each match. At the end of each match you will be given points for the following factors:
Playing normally through Arcade Mode will not net you nearly enough points for either trophy. You can aim to earn a perfect on each match through the regular settings as you would from a speed run for a character ending however getting perfects will only get you 50,000 points plus a little extra from your in-game actions. If you’re lucky you could use that method to barely hit pass 400,000 points for The Points Do Matter however for 500,000 you will have to use a defensive method.
For the difficulty you want it high enough so that your opponent is at least attacking you however be wary that during the last 2-3 stages the opponents start to fight game pulling off short BnB combos, so there may be times where they just overwhelm you so if you’re inexperienced you might want to go down a difficulty (difficulty does not affect score).
Now you want to select your final character who you will spam during each match to build meter, here is a list of characters with meter regeneration assists:
Using these assists should earn you around 30% of meter to your character. You can easily spam the assist due to its fast reload so you should easily hit 1 meter in seconds. Now that you have the character select done, let’s move on to the method behind this achievement.
Each of these take up a bar of meter which is why you need to build as much meter as you can while avoiding killing off the enemy. Doing a large amount during a match should net you AT LEAST 80,000 per match so by the time you make it to Stage 6 you should have enough already for the trophy.
|Clear 120 missions in Mission mode.|
Please refer to Master of Tasks for more information in obtaining this achievement.
|Up To The Challenge||30|
|Clear 240 missions in Mission mode.|
Please refer to Master of Tasks for more information in obtaining this achievement.
|Master of Tasks||40|
|Clear 480 missions in Mission mode.||(42)|
Mission Mode has returned in Ultimate and this time you must clear every mission for every character making this the most difficult and time-consuming achievement in the game! If you completed the Mission Mode for the original game then this should be no different but new missions have been added for new and returning characters.
In Mission mode there are 10 missions for each character involving trials such as performing special moves and combos. There are 48 characters in the game (plus 2 DLC characters) giving you 480 missions (500 If you include the DLC) to complete for this achievement. If you have Shuma Gorath and Jill downloaded then you have a 20 mission leeway if you need to skip harder ones. You will only need to complete Mission Mode to 96.00% with most of the DLC character missions done, it's not much but it helps.
Unlike Super Street Fighter 4 the Mission mode of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is not that much harder, however there are some missions that will be difficult to perform. Timing for combos in Ultimate are pretty "type-based" and very lenient in their timing. Most combos can be done simply by hitting the button that comes after it ahead of time and continuing from there.
And much more. Even though it is not as hard as SSFIV this will still take some time and dedication to complete. Some tips for taking on this trophy are:
|Above Average Joe||10|
|Land a Viewtiful Combo. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)|
See Mutant Master.
|Land an Uncanny Combo. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)||(3)|
For this you must perform the required amount of combo hits in an Arcade or Xbox Live match. The 2 combo achievements can be stacked, with the Uncanny Combo being the highest.
Pick 3 characters that have Hyper Combos that shoot or blast across the screen such as Iron Man, Ryu, Deadpool, M.O.D.O.K or Dante. Build up your Hyper Combo Gauge until you have it at Level 3 and then press to have all your characters do their Hyper Combos at the same time. Make sure your opponent has full health so every hit adds to the combo. This should net you both combo achievements at once. Another method you can use is by using some of Galactus' moves in Galactus Mode (see Intro for how to access it). Using his Hand Beams should easily net you a 100+ hit combo.
|Use 1,000 Hyper Combo Gauge bars. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)||(4)|
Similar to the previous game there is once again an achievement for using 1,000 Hyber bars. Your Hyper Combo Gauge is located at the bottom of the screen and you can hold up to 5 charges at a time. It builds as you attack your opponent and you use it to unleash a Hyper Combo on them. Each character has more than one Hyper Combo move and you should be able to build this bar up at least 3 or 4 times during one match. Morrigan can also build the bar up with her Dark Harmonizer Assist. Just call her in and after about 3 assists, you'll have one full Hyper Combo Gauge bar to use.
So long as you keep using Hyper Bars in every match you play you should unlock this achievement eventually. A nice way to grind for this is during the 7th match in Arcade Mode against Galactus. Nearly any move that Galactus inflicts on you nets massive damages and can build up 5 hyper bars in no time. Simply hit a Crossover Combination with until you die. Hit continue once you die, pick your characters and repeat. Using the method for unlocking High-Score Hero also works well toward this.
|Block 100 times. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)||(3)|
To block, you must hold either to block low or to block high. This is if you're on the left side of the screen. More specifically, make sure you're holding the direction away from your opponent to block attacks. While some moves can easily been seen as a high or low attack watch out for some moves that can be very deceiving to the eye.
Also watch out for mix ups where an opponent uses fast high and low attacks after one another which could open you up and kill off a character if the appropriate combo is used from that hit confirm. After you have blocked 100 attacks this will unlock. Multi-shot projectile attacks count as multi-blocks. So long as you block in all your matches then this should some naturally.
|Perform 100 Advancing Guards. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)||(5)|
You must perform 100 Advancing Guards as opposed to the 30 you had to pull off in the previous Marvel vs Capcom 3 installment. To perform an Advancing Guard you must hit + while guarding. The announcer will say "Advancing Guard!" and a message will show as a confirmation that you pulled one off. This is a good guard to always use on-block as it can reduce chip damage and push the opposing character back if they are in your face to give you room to retreat and compose yourself.
When using the method for High-Score Hero, you will unlock this in no time. This will unlock once you do this 100 times in either Arcade Mode or Xbox Live.
|A Friend in Need||20|
|Perform 100 Crossover Assists. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)||(2)|
You must perform 100 Crossover Assists in order to unlock this. Hit ( ) or ( ) to perform a Crossover Assist. A Crossover Assist is where you have a teammate jump in and attack on your behalf. There are some assists that even help increase your Hyper Combo gauge.
|Land 50 First Attacks. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)|
Be the first person to connect with a hit in a match 50 times. Make sure it actual connects with your opponent and they aren't blocking. The words "First Attack" will appear on your side if it connected.
|Perform 50 Snap Backs. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)||(1)|
A Snap Back is when you knock(via some sort of attack) your opponent off the screen as the active player and replace them with one of their other characters (The character comes back if they are the only one left standing). To do this, press (Quarter Circle Forward) + or when you are standing next to your opponent. You'll hear "Snap Back!" by the announcer if done correctly. You need one full bar of your Hyper Meter to do this.
|Perform 50 Crossover Counters. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)|
To do a Crossover Counter, you must block while your opponent attacks you and immediately press and your partner button ( or ). Your partner will come in with an assist and also swap out with your current character. The timing to perform this is very quick but the words crossover counter will appear on your side of the screen if done correctly. This can be done in either Arcade Mode or an Xbox Live match.
|Use X-Factor 50 times. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)|
X-Factor is a free move that you get once per round. It enhances your speed, your attacks and fills the red part (recoverable damage) of your energy if you aren't blocking. Enter an Arcade or Xbox Live match and push all three attacks buttons and special ( ) at the exact same time to activate.
|Land 50 Team Aerial Combos. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)|
Team Aerial Combos are basically extensions of combos that can be performed in the air. You can perform a Team Aerial Combo so long as you have a hyper meter and a teammate waiting in line. To perform a Team Aerial Combo you must first launch an opponent in the air with , once in the air, follow up with at least one basic attack and then you can press the directional pad , or . Depending on what direction you choose, the Team Aerial Combo with have a different effect:
: Sends the opponent into the air. Does the most damage.
So depending on what you need, you will want to kill off your opponent or build meter for whatever reason you have these options to choose from.
If you are familiar with basic BnB Mission Mode trials this should be easy to pull off multiple times. Do this 50 times in either Arcade Mode or Xbox Live.
|Land 30 Team Aerial Counters. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)||(6)|
To do a Team Aerial Combo, you launch an opponent into the air, hit them with 3 hits or so, then press a direction + button(). This creates an attack where, if it connects, you tag out to one of your other teammates to come in and continue the combo, and you'll also gain some meter (except on Upward exchanges). You can do this one more time to create a combo with all 3 of your characters and gain some meter for Hypers.
|Big Bang Theory||15|
|Perform 30 Hyper Combo Finishes. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)|
A Hyper Combo is a super move that can be performed by inputting a specific command and then light and medium attack together (default + ). You can also simply use for executing Hyper combos since it's the same as hitting + . There are multiple ways to use a hyper attack, most of which include the following move sets:
Defeat two of your opponents in a match and get the last one down until they have about a quarter energy left. Then, perform the Hyper Combo while they are not blocking. When you have successfully done a Hyper Combo Finish, the background will flash variants of orange and it will be announced that it was a "Hyper Combo KO" if you get this then you've done it correctly.
|Perform 30 Crossover Combination Finishes. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE)|
For this achievement, you must defeat the last opponent standing with a crossover combination. A crossover combination is when you use two (or three) characters Hyper Combo's at the same time.
Enter an Arcade or Xbox Live match and build up your Hyper Combo Gauge until only one character is left to beat with about half of their energy bar, then hit and two (or three) of your characters should perform the crossover combination. Do this 30 times in total over either mode.
|Play in Offline Mode for over 5 hours.|
You must play in Offline Mode for over 5 hours in order for this to unlock. Whenever you are playing in any Offline Mode such as Arcade, Versus, Training, or Mission this will accumulate. Leaving the game on idle under Training or Mission Mode should help you work toward this, however you should easily net over 5 hours while working towards other achievements.
|Training in Isolation||30|
|Play in Offline Mode for over 30 hours.||(8)|
You must play in Offline Mode for over 30 hours in order for this to unlock. So whenever you are playing in any Offline Mode such as Arcade, Versus, Training, or Mission this will accumulate. Leaving the game on idle under Training or Mission Mode should help you work toward this however you should not bother leaving your console on idle for this until you have most of the offline-related achievements in the game, especially Master of Tasks. There's a fair chance you could be quite close to the 30 hour mark once you have completed 480 missions in Mission Mode and all other offline achievements.
|Play on Xbox LIVE for over 5 hours.|
In order for you to unlock this achievement you must play on Xbox Live for a total of 5 hours or more. Since you will be working towards other online achievements, this should unlock in no time. Time appears to only accumulate during online matches(and spectator mode) so staying idle at the Xbox Live main menu does NOT work towards this. Time during character selection also appears to not count toward this, only time that passes during a match accumulates for this. If you're a casual online Ultimate player then you will unlock this in due time and while working towards Rivals Welcome.
|Play on Xbox LIVE for over 30 hours.||(19)|
In order for you to unlock this achievement you must play on Xbox Live for a total of 30 hours or more. Time appears to only accumulate during online matches (and spectator mode) so sitting at the Xbox Live main menu does NOT work towards this. Time during character selection also appears to not count toward this, only time that passes during a match accumulates for this. If you're a casual online Ultimate player then you will unlock this in due time however not everyone is serious about playing Ultimate online.
|Brave New World||10|

You will have to face against all 48 characters (excluding Jill and Shuma Gorath) in any Xbox Live Match. This could take a minimum of 16 games if you find a boosting partner and have them play every character once. You can boost this with friends. Have you and your partner focus on Marvel-only and Capcom-only characters until you have used the whole side of the comic book then switch. This should make it easier when keeping track of the characters you battle against.
|Win without calling your partners or switching out in a Xbox LIVE match.||(6)|
To unlock this achievement, you must win an online match without switching your starting character with one of the others, calling an assist or having a partner aid you in an aerial combo. Basically, only use the 3 attack buttons and the special button.

|Win without blocking in an Xbox LIVE match.||(7)|
To block, you must push away from your opponent when they are attacking you. See Defender for more details. To get this achievement, just avoid hitting back.
|Surpass the rank of Fighter.||(2)|
You will reach the rank of "Fighter" while playing ranked matches online. This will unlock on your 7th win.
|Surpass the 6th rank of any class.||(15)|
When playing online your in-game statistics determine the rank class you are given after you have surpassed the rank of a Fighter. The statistics are divided the same way they are in Arcade Mode:
However Stability stands for overall balance between your offenses and defenses, here are the types of ranks for each statistic:
Depending on what you excel in you will be given that rank type, most players usually fall under the ranking of a Lord. Players rank up depending on how well they do in their matches, different factors such as your win streak influence the amount of extra points you get which is why some players reach a high rank with a lower amount of wins then another player.
|Win 10 battles in Ranked Match.||(2)|
Refer to Fighting Machine for more info on obtaining this achievement.
|Win 50 battles in Ranked Match.||(2)|
Refer to Fighting Machine for more info on obtaining this achievement.

|Get a 5-game win streak in Ranked Match.||(26)|
You must win 5 Ranked Matches online in a row, you can do this in multiple sittings. When playing ranked matches, I advise just using your best team, do not let higher ranking players intimidate you, it just means they have played the game more than you have. Their win/lose ratio on the other hand is something you should take notice of. That said, any veteran of Marvel vs Capcom 3 can easily obtain this achievement as 5 straight wins are decently forgiving.
And then simply search, there is a better chance of pairing up against your partner like this as opposed to regular quick search. You should be able to enter each others Ranked lobby just about every time!
|Participate in an 8 player Lobby over Xbox LIVE.||(3)|
Joining an 8 player lobby is once again an achievement in Ultimate. Go to Xbox Live and then Search Lobby. A list of options will appear. Only change the top option to: "LOBBY SIZE 8" then hit Begin Search. It will take you to a screen where numerous online gamers are in lobbies. You'll want to be looking for the middle box which says Lobby Size at the top. Find one with 7 lights on and join it. You don't even need to compete for the achievement, simply enter the lobby and it will unlock.
|Collect 100 titles.||(1)|
You must collect 100 titles to unlock this achievement. Collecting 100 titles will come naturally as you are unlocking other achievements, specifically Waiting for the Trade and Master of Tasks. There are a variety of titles and can be unlocked in various ways. Each individual character has a title for the following things:
There are 48 characters in the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 cast as well as the 2 additional DLC characters Jill and Shuma, completing all the endings with each character for Waiting for the Trade will already qualify you for 48/100 titles for this achievement. If you have extra DLC characters 50/100. While completing missions for Master of Tasks you should be able to unlock the title for completing five missions with each character giving you your 100 titles if you were to complete the 5 missions with each character, if this is too difficult for you here are your other options for titles.

|Unlock all items in the Gallery.||(2)|
Gallery Mode also makes a return in Ultimate and you must collect all items in each selection:
Most of which are done by getting each character ending. There are also additional requirements you must meet. To unlock all the items in the gallery you must complete the following:
You can enter the Gallery and check your progress through the percentage displayed on the upper-right corner of the screen. If you're missing an Ending for a certain character in Gallery represented by ??? and don't know who they are then hit up Mission Mode to see the order in which the fighters are arranged in Gallery. This will help establish who you haven't completed the game with since the order of characters in Mission Mode is the exact same as they are in the Gallery.

There are 18 stages in total in Ultimate, twice as many as the previous game and they are:
You can get this achievement in Xbox Live, Arcade, Versus or Training. Just select the stage once you've chosen your characters. You don't need to fight in it, so you can enter and quickly leave after the FIGHT! has been announced.
