x360a would like to thanks Rusty Nail zh for this Road Map
|Defeat any vehicle in any mode.||(1)|
You'll get this achievement the first time you play the game. All you have to do is destroy a car. You can total them if you like, or you can just let them idle, burn, and explode.
|Fire 10 Charge-Up Attacks.|
To fire a charge-up attack, all you need to do is hold down the weapon's fire button and watch the charge gauge to see what attack you're going to perform. Each weapon has 3 different charge-ups. Alternatively if you're feeling nostalgic you can use the classic button combos to fire them; the combos are all three directional button commands followed by the machine gun. Do not fire the weapon itself to charge it, you only need to shoot the machine gun after inputting the combo sequence.
|Achieve 100 Whammies.|
A "whammy" in this game is something you want, unlike Press Your Luck. To get a whammy you need to hit an opponent with two different weapons at the same time. This is most easily accomplished by firing the Bruiser Cannon and Bullseye Rockets at someone at the same time when they are directly in front of you. If your special is something that homes and hits several times such as Dave's Invasion or Beezwax's Swarm, then you can fire your special and follow-up with homing missiles.
|Collect enough Salvage Points to fully upgrade one vehicle.|
Salvage points are dropped from vehicle wreckage, and depending on how good of a job you do, you'll get more or less points. For simply destroying a car you'll be awarded with four salvage points (and your enemy's weapons). However if you total an opponent you will get eight salvage points instead of four. Every whammy you land on an enemy will grant you two salvage points as well. You need 200 points to upgrade a vehicle.
|Complete single player Quest Mode on Easy mode.||(1)|
"Quest Completion" achievements require that you beat Quest mode with all eight characters, not just one for each difficulty. Easy mode is a cakewalk and is a good introductory course to the drivers and their vehicles.
|Fire 100 Charge-Up Attacks.|
As you progress through the game you'll find that each weapon has a very handy charge-up and this achievement will be unlocked as you normally progress through the game. Very helpful charge-ups include the Afterburner (Interceptor Missiles), Crater Maker (Sky Hammer Mortar), and Road Runner (Bullseye Rockets).
|Destroy 100 cars by 'totaling' them.|
To "total" a car you must hit it with your special or with a charge-up attack when the vehicle is stalled and burning (with the horn going off). You only get a few seconds to perform this attack so if you have a slow firing special or a clumsy one to attack with (such as Molo's) the best plan of attack is to fire off a quick Cow Puncher (Bruiser Cannon) or Road Runner (Bullseye Rockets) charge-up. Totaling an enemy also grants you eight salvage points which is useful for the "Grease Monkey" and "Top Mechanic" achievements.
|Collect all 100 'Alien' icons in single player to unlock a secret craft.||(1)|
There are five arenas and each arena has 20 alien tokens on them. You can get these during Quest mode if you like, but if you want to get them at your own leisure I suggest doing this in Free Wheelin' mode so there are no enemies and you can quit once you've found all of the icons.
|Quest: Super Unleaded||20|
|Complete single player Quest Mode on Medium mode.||(1)|
"Quest Completion" achievements require that you beat Quest mode with all eight characters, not just one for each difficulty. Medium mode is noticeably harder than Easy, but not overwhelming enough to put off inexperienced players.
|King O' Online||20|
|Win 10 online multiplayer battles.||(18)|
To win a battle you simply must end the round with the most kills. You can join any public game, or if you like you can get together with your boosting buddies.
|Quest: High Octane||30|
|Complete single player Quest Mode on Hard mode.|
"Quest Completion" achievements require that you beat Quest mode with all eight characters, not just one for each difficulty. Hard mode is only for Vigilante 8 veterans who know the best way to handle each car. There is not a lot of leeway for error so until you know what your chosen vehicle can and can't do, you should focus on other achievements instead.
|Collect enough Salvage Points to fully upgrade all eight vehicles.|
Each vehicle requires 200 points to be "fully upgraded". You can get points in Custom Battle mode, so the fastest way to get this is to choose a small arena (Oil Fields or Meteor Crater work), set the kill limit to 7, and select only Boogie ("Leprechaun") as your enemy as this car has the weakest armor out of the 8 vehicles. Simply ram or shoot him into oblivion and fire off a special weapon or a charge-up attack to total him and you'll be rewarded with 8 salvage points per kill. Alternatively you can also get whammies off of him and collect the points those attacks drop as well. Progress on this achievement is a great way to unlock "Total Pro" and "Whammy Master".
