 Pointless Collector (10 points)
Take part in the L.O.G. badge collecting challenge at the start of the game in Spiral Mountain

This happens rigth at the beginning of the game. Simply walk forward from your house for a cutscene. L.O.G. will make you participate in a badge collecting mini-game. Once you collect 7-10 of them L.O.G. will interrupt the game and the achievement will unlock.

 Open Nuts (10 points)
Place the Nutty Acres Game Globe on its plinth in Showdown Town

After either completing or skipping the tutorials, you will have control of Banjo and your vehicle. You will need to drive up the winding path on the side of the mountain to speak with L.O.G. who will give you your first game globe. Grab the globe with and place it in your cart. Now drive down the green slope in front of L.O.G., remove the globe withand place it on the plinth next to the giant Jiggy bank.

 Next-Next-Gen (10 points)
Place the LOGBOX 720 Game Globe on its plinth in Showdown Town

After banking two Jiggies you will receive your next game globe. Retreive it from next to L.O.G. and drive down to the Jiggy bank and down an alley to the right of it. Straight ahead past the statue is your next plinth for the Logbox 720 game world.

 History Lesson (15 points)
Place the Banjoland Game Globe on its plinth in Showdown Town

After banking six Jiggies you will get the Banjoland globe. Retrieve it from next to L.O.G. and go back to the Jiggy bank and make a left. Up the small green slope here is Trophy Thomas' house. The plinth is just to the right of that.

Note: The Grip Wheels are required to drive up the slippery green slopes so you will need to complete the first Grunty challenge in Nutty Acres.

 Let the Games Begin (15 points)
Place the Jiggosseum Game Globe on its plinth in Showdown Town

After banking 15 Jiggies you will get this game globe. Retrieve the globe from near L.O.G. and drive down past Boggy's Gym. You will see a large crane across the water and a small round circle on the ground. Place the globe inside the circle so it sticks to the magnetic "hand" of the crane, then head across the water and climb the large crane. Use the control at the very top (hit X, then swirl your control stick) to move the crane (with globe attached) and once it is in the right spot the ball will fall, roll down a tunnel and land on the plinth.

 Super Banjo Universe (20 points)
Place the Terrarium of Terror Game Globe on its plinth in Showdown Town

After banking 50 Jiggies this globe will be available. Again retrieve it from L.O.G. and drive to the back of "Uptown" (a circle of houses with a large gated section in the middle) and drive underneath (press B to submerge). The globe will stay behind and float, but once you get inside you will find a switch. Use the switch to lower the water and then go back to get the globe. Now drive up inside the gated section of Uptown to find this plinth.

Note: The Scuba Gear is required to enter the secret tunnel so you will need to complete the Grunty battle of the Jiggoseum first.

 My First Bank (10 points)
Bank your first Jiggy in Showdown Town

Once you complete your first challenge inside Nutty Acres (after doing the "Open Nuts" achievement to unlock the world), head back to Showdown Town. There is a switch right next to the Jiggy bank that will now show a "1" over it, indicating there are Jiggies inside. Use the switch to make it pop out, then pick it up with RT and run underneath the Jiggy Bank for it to get sucked up inside.

Note: Each level has its own Jiggy dispenser. Here are their locations:

  • Nutty Acres: Directly next to the Jiggy bank.
  • Logbox720: To the right of the world doors.
  • Banjoland: To the right of Trophy Thomas' house.
  • Jiggoseum: In the alleyway of all the doors, inside a rundown house.
  • Terranium of Terror: In between two of the world doors in Uptown.
  • Trophy Thomas Bonus: At his house.
  • Jolly Dodger Purchases: Near the jails.
 Little Banker (20 points)
Bank 10 Jiggies in Showdown Town

See "Jigillionaire" for more info.

 Big Banker (30 points)
Bank 30 Jiggies in Showdown Town

See "Jigillionaire" for more info.

 Shower of Gold (40 points)
Bank 60 Jiggies in Showdown Town

See "Jigillionaire" for more info.

 Jiggillionaire! (50 points)
Bank 131 Jiggies in Showdown Town

To receive all 131 Jiggies you will need to do the following:

  • Complete all 97 challenges with at least a Jiggy rating. (97)
  • Complete 96/97 challenges with a T.T. rating. (24)
  • Buy all of Jolly Dodger's Jiggies. (5)
  • Find all the Tampered Switches. (5)

Jiggy Ratings: If you're having trouble on a mission, pause the game and select "View Leaderboards" under the second section, then find and select the mission name and hit Y to view one of the top 10 replays. Some of them will even have their blueprints there to download so you can use their same vehicle. If you don't have all the parts, fill in the missing sections with whatever you can. If you're missing something important like the weapons, try to return more crates in Showdown Town or complete more missions to either get bonuses from Mumbo or unlock more parts to buy from Humba.

T.T. Ratings: The most common challenges that people can't manage a T.T. on are either "Saucer of Peril Returns" or "Flower Shower Power" in the Terranium of Terror so aim to complete one of those and ignore the other. Again, watch replays and download blueprints if you're having trouble.

Jolly Dodger: He can be found either underneath Klungo's Arcade or somewhere on the beach to the left or right. You will need 375 notes total to buy all five of his Jiggies.

Tampered Switches: The five switches are found in the following locations:

  • Underneath the big lighthouse. Find one of the big alcoves, the location is on the right side of it, only big enough for Banjo to walk through.
  • On top of L.O.G. Factory, next to the pole you climb for the "Head for Heights" achievement.
  • Underwater below Klungo's Arcade.
  • On a balcony on the outside of Uptown. Directly to the right of the Uptown entrance is a drainpipe to climb to reach the roofs. Find where the balcony is and drop off the side onto it.
  • Behind the L.O.G. Factory is a tunnel you can enter (requires Scube Gear). Once inside, take a path off to the right and up onto dry land, then exit your vehicle and walk up a small tunnel similar to the first switch in the back of the lighthouse.
 Pimped Up (20 points)
Complete the Showdown Town Trolley with Parts won from Grunty battles

The Grunty battles are required to get all the Jiggies so this will come along the way if you're going for the "Jigillionaire" achievement. They are located in the following acts:

  • Nutty Acres, Act 3 (Grip Wheels)
  • Logbox 720, Act 3 (Floaters)
  • Banjoland, Act 3 (Spring)
  • Jiggoseum, Act 4 (Scuba Gear)
  • Jiggoseum, Act 5 (Laser)
  • Terranium of Terror, Act 5 (Horn)
 Witch Hunt (50 points)
Defeat Grunty at the end of the game

This can be done once you bank 75 Jiggies. Drive up to where L.O.G. is and enter the door there. You will first need to complete the six-part L.O.G. challenge, then you will be able to battle Grunty.

  • Part 1: Monster Truck - Just ram her right into the water.
  • Part 2: Boat - Blast away with homing rockets and the laser.
  • Part 3: Cloaked - Either method for Part 1 or Part 2 works well here.
  • Part 4: Tank - Same as Part 2.
  • Part 5: Broom - Take to the air and follow close on her tail, blasting away with your homing rockets.

WARNING: Make sure you get the "Burn the Witch" achievement before doing this.

 My First Trophy (10 points)
Earn a T.T. Trophy from any challenge

See "A Lot of Trophy Pts" for more info.

 Few Trophy Pts (20 points)
Earn 10 T.T. Trophies from any challenges

See "A Lot of Trophy Pts" for more info.

 More Trophy Pts (30 points)
Earn 30 T.T. Trophies from any challenges

See "A Lot of Trophy Pts" for more info.

 A Lot of Trophy Pts (40 points)
Earn 60 T.T. Trophies from any challenges

For all the specific T.T. achievements you only need 60 total, but you do need at least 96 of the total 97 challenges to get all the bonus Jiggies from Trophy Thomas to complete the "Jiggilionaire" achievement. See that achievement for more info.

 Be Crateful (15 points)
Find and return two crates to Mumbo's Motors

The two easiest crates to find are right next to Humba's shop and directly behind Mumbo's skull. Pick them up with RT and either drop them in the vehicle and pull them out to drop them inside the pink square or just run them over there since they are both very close. Talk to Mumbo with X and he will unpack them.

 Blueprint Buyout (15 points)
Buy a blueprint from Humba in Showdown Town

Once you bank your first Jiggy, Humba will open her shop for business. Simply talk to her and buy any blueprint to unlock this achievement.

 Roid Rage (15 points)
Train Banjo once in the Showdown Town gym

Once you get the Grip Wheels you can go up the slopes to find Boggy's gym behind the two cranes next to the Jiggoseum doors. It is the only icy area in Shwodown so it shouldn't be too hard to find. The lowest thing to buy is about 60 notes so the cost isn't a problem. You should go for speed or strength first.

 Start to Free the Showdown Six (15 points)
Free and re-house a Jinjo in Showdown Town

You only have to free and re-house one Jinjo for the achievement, not all of them. Only one is required to complete all the achievements as well, so you can ignore the rest if you like.

Here is how to get the Orange Jinjo:

Start in front of Klungo's Arcade and head left until there are no more buildings around you. After you pass the last one make a left and go up the big hill. Once there head on the nearest rooftop to spot a switch. This switch releases the Orange Jinjo. To get to his house go back to Klungo's Arcade and keep going straight until you're in front of three small houses on the beach. Make a right and go up the hill. Once up there you should see the bridge and the Orange house after it. Bring the Jinjo to the doorstep of his house and once he disappears the achievement will pop.


 Vigilante (15 points)
Lock up a Minjo in Showdown Town

Again you only need one Minjo and do not need to do all of them for any achievement.

First you will need to speak with the pig in front of the jails to hear about the creatures causing a ruckus. The cops are mistaking Jinjos for Minjos which is why you need to free the Jinjos and lock up the Minjos.

The easiest Minjo to lock up is directly to the left of the large slope leading to the L.O.G. factory, behind the building. Pull the switch right there to free the Blue Jinjo (you don't have to return him to his house), then find the little Minjo running around in that area. Whack him with your wrench and pick him up with RT, then carry him to the now open jail cell to lock him up. Once the officer talks to you the achievement will pop.

 Bingo! (20 points)
Complete a line on the Bingo card at King Jingaling's Palace

The Bingo Hall is in front of the pier where Klungo's Arcade is. Talk to the Jinjo King to start the game. You will need to fill up only one line to receive a prize. The easiest is the 5th line from the left. To fill in spaces you will first need to complete Jinjo challenges in the game worlds. Each square is a different color and you must win a Jinjo challenge of a Jinjo that color to receive a token to use.

The Jinjos might be hard to find in the game worlds until you equip the Spec-o-Spy part, then they will appear on your mini-map.

 Stop 'n' Swop (0 points)
Return a Stop 'n' Swop crate to Mumbo's Motors

This cannot be done unless you have the Xbox Live Arcade version of Banjo-Kazooie. The Stop n' Swop crates do not appear in this game unless you have unlocked the corresponding eggs or ice key from the arcade game. Here are the locations of the items in the arcade game:

  • Ice Key: Freezezy Peak
  • Blue Egg: Gobi's Valley
  • Purple Egg: Treasure Trove Cove
  • Light Blue Egg: Mad Monster Mansion (cellar)
  • Green Egg: Mad Monster Mansion (on top of toilet)
  • Yellow Egg: Click Clock Wood
  • Red Egg: Rusty Bucket Bay

You only need to collect one of the above, then find the corresponding crate in Nuts and Bolts. The ice key is on top of Boggy's Gym and the eggs are located throughout Showdown. There will be an egg painted on the ground where the crate will show up.

 BBQ Beef (20 points)
In Nutty Acres, they like their steak well done

All you have to do for this is pick up any cow using RT and drop it inside the large volcano.

 Massive Damage (20 points)
Aim at the 10 legs for massive damage

In the middle of Logbox 720 is a giant brain with ten yellow "legs" sticking out of it to make it look like a big spider. Simply knock off all 10 to get the achievement.

 Test Your Strength (20 points)
Roll up, show the whole of Banjoland how strong you are

Inside Banjoland is a large cactus with a star on the ground below it. Make a big vehicle out of all heavy blocks and use a flying vehicle to hover durectly below the bell attached to the cactus. Now quickly pause and switch to the heavy vehicle and let it drop to the ground and hit the star. The weight and speed should ring the bell and net you the achievement.

 Great Balls of Fire (20 points)
Take a heavy ball around the Jiggosseum and get a burning sensation

Inside the Jiggoseum, use a flying vehicle with a sticky ball attachment to grab one of the bowling balls off the podium, then fly to one of the hanging torches around the outside of the building to dangle it in the fire.

 Ultimate Combo (20 points)
More like a three-hit combo in the Terrarium of Terror

Inside the Terranium of Terror, you need to have a fuel tank, rocket and license plate in your vehicle all at the same time. You need to have a large enough vehicle that all three can rest on the bottom or the achievement won't work. You can't have the license plate resting on top of the fuel tank for instance. The game needs to register all three on the bottom of your vehicle. You can use a custom vehicle or the Humba Big Loader would work as well.

 Floater in the Pipe (20 points)
Eeurgh! That's not going to help the Test-O-Track plumbing

The floating soccer ball in the Test-o-Track has to make its way inside the pipe running under the middle section of the arena. You can use a cage type flying vehicle to trap it and bring it down, but the easiest way is using the sticky ball.

 Burn the Witch! (20 points)
Showdown Town witch hunt

Once you have the laser upgrade to your cart, find Grunty inside Showdown Town and fire it at her with the  button.

Note: This must be done before beating her inside the L.O.G. Factory for the "Witch Hunt" achievement.

 Head for Heights (20 points)
Find the best view in Showdown Town

At the back of the L.O.G. factory is a dangling red wire. Jump up and grab it, then continue to climb until you reach the roof. Once there, climb the tallest pole to stand on top for the achievement.

 Fuzz Off! (20 points)
POP goes the Weasel!

You can either free a Jinjo to have police show up, or just run into some pedestrians and they should start trying to arrest you. Once they appear, simply attack one of their vehicles until it explodes.

 Paint Your Wagon (10 points)
Paint any part of your vehicle in Mumbo's Motors

While inside Mumbo's Motors (where you build all your vehicles) scroll to the arch that says "Paint Vehicle" and simply scroll trough the colors and select any one you like, then apply the paint to any part of the vehicle or the entire vehicle at once.

 Speedy of the Colossus (25 points)
Build a vehicle with 200 blocks or more and go over a set speed

For this you will want to make a vehicle out of all Heavy Body types until it won't let you add anything more (this will be the 200 max), then head to Nutty Acres. Use a flying vehicle to go straight up to the ceiling of the level, then make sure there are no clouds in your path and pause the game. Select "change vehicle" and select the Heavy vehicle you've made. You will now be falling to the ground in your heavy vehicle. Hold UP on the control stick to tilt your nose down for more speed. If you fill the speed guage all the way before you land the achievement will unlock.

 Minimalist (25 points)
Build a vehicle with five blocks or less and go over a set speed

For this you will simply need to create a "vehicle" with only a seat and the spring gadget. Take it to any level or the Test-o-Track and use RB to put yourself back upright (you'll most likely fall over once the level starts) and quickly press A to activate the spring. This will send you flying and unlock the achievement.

 Whoa Nelly! (25 points)
Travel in a vehicle over a set speed

You will get this achievement at the same time as "Minimalist" or "Speedy of the Colossus," whichever one you do first.

 Loose Change (20 points)
Collect ALL the Showdown Town Loose Change

There are 900 total notes in Showdown though they are valued at 1 (bronze), 5 (silver) and 10 (gold) so you don't have to actually collect 900 total notes. Check your progress through the Statistics tab in the save menu. Some hard to find notes:

  • Underwater beneheath the pier where doors 3 and 4 of Banjoland are.
  • Underwater beneath Klungo's Arcade.
  • On the island behind the Orange Jinjo house.
  • Under the bridge leading to the Orange Jinjo house.
  • Inside the three shacks on the beach near Klung's Arcade.
  • In the alley between the Jiggoseum doors.
  • On a small walkway above Humba's shop.
If you're stuck at something like 899/900 or 890/900 you most likely missed one note from a larger group of notes. Most people tend to miss a note underwater since they are tough to see. Check those areas over again first.


 Arcade Pwner (20 points)
Finish all levels of Klungo's Arcade game

The first level of the arcade game unlocks with 7 Jiggies banked but you will need 30 total to unlock all levels. The fifth and final level does not unlock until you pass the first four levels. All you need to do it time your jumps with the A button to complete each level. The first three are rather easy but level four will definitely take some time. Eventually you will learn each "sweet spot" for jumping and once you can memorize the entire level you'll pass it. The final level against Grunty you simply need to jump once, but you have to jump a split-second after the fireball leaves her mouth or it will hit you.

Note: At times the game will freeze and Klungo will have to reset it. This is not a glitch with your game, this is just Rare thinking they are funny. It is annoying, but don't let it get to you.

 Sunday League (20 points)
Play in and complete a multiplayer game League

Best done with two controllers. Sign in two profiles and make a Local Multiplayer match. Under "Match Choice" choose "Create Custom League" and then select one single sport or race. Complete the sport or race for the achievement.

 Premier League! (40 points)
Play in and complete a marathon multiplayer game League (Every Race, Every Sport or Every Race and Sport)

Despite the achievement description, ONLY "Every Race and Sport" works to unlock this, not the other two options. Set up a match just like you did with "Sunday League" but this time it will be every race and every sport in the multiplayer game mode. This will take a few hours.

It is suggested that you find two wired controllers, plug n' play kits, guitar or drum controllers. You will need two of any combination of those to leave your controllers active. All the games, races and vehicle selections are timed and the entire league will continue to play out while you can go to bed or whatever you need to do. The races are ten minutes each by themselves so this will need a few hours to complete.

 What's That Smell? (10 points)
Play an Xbox LIVE multiplayer game against a Banjo team member, or somebody who has already done so

This is a viral achievement, so simply find someone with this achievement and play a game over Xbox Live with them.

 Bit of Blue (10 points)
Share a blueprint with another player or Friend over Xbox LIVE, or save 20 blueprints

To share a blueprint: Go to Mumbo's Motors and select the "vehicle database" arch. At the bottom is will say "share blueprints" and you will need to select that, select any blueprint you've already saved and then select who to send it to. They do not have to receive it, open it or use it. You simply need to have sent it.

If you don't have Live for any reason, you can make 20 variants of any vehicle and save them to your hard drive or a memory card.

 Paparazzi (10 points)
Take a photo and upload it to Xbox LIVE, or take five photos

As soon as the game starts you can do this. Pause and go to "Photos and Replays" then hit "Take Photo" to enter photo mode. You can take and save one, then return to your scrapbook and hit Y to upload one, or you can just press A five times to save five different photos.

 Caught on Camera (10 points)
Send a video replay to a Friend over Xbox LIVE, or save five replays

After any Jiggy challenege you will have the chance to save your replay. Simply hit B at the results screen (where you find if you've earned notes, a Jiggy or a T.T. trophy). Do this five times, or go to the scrapbook and send your saved replay to a friend.

 High Fives All Round (10 points)
Be on the winning team in a ranked team game

Team games can use the party system so you can get four people in a party and start the match, then switch off who wins during two games. Or you can find a match legit and hope for the best.

Note: Minimum of 4 to start a ranked match.

 All My Own Work (20 points)
Win a ranked solo game with a custom vehicle

Solo games can not be found while in a party, so if you are trying to boost, you will need to simply have all your friends search at the same time. Use the Xbox Live Party Chat to stay in contact with each other. Once the game is about to start, be sure to select a custom vehicle and not one of the pre-made vehicles the game offers.

Note: Minimum of 4 to start a ranked match. 

 Too Easy! (10 points)
Win a ranked solo race by reversing over the finish line

Easiest done if boosting, but if not use a custom vehicle with a lot of engines and blow away the competition. You will need a good lead to be able to stop, turn around and reverse over the line for a legit win.

 Too Easy Too! (20 points)
Win a ranked solo race by running or swimming over the finish line

Again, easiest done boosting but can be done with a custom vehicle that can blow away your opponents. Hit Y to jump out of your vehicle near the finish line and finish the race by running/swimming across (depending on the type of race).

 Are You Trophy Thomas? (40 points)
Win 20 Xbox LIVE ranked multiplayer games in any mode

This can be done in team games or solo games. Since it does require four to start a match, find three other who want to boost and get in a party. This way you can simply play 40 matches total and let each team get 20 wins. Can be done legit, of course.

 L.O.G. Master (30 points)
Win all of the new DLC multiplayer games

This can be done with two controllers in a local match. When you are in the lobby, choose one of the many available gamemodes with L.O.G's head in the top right corner. This is how you will know if it is a lost challenge game. Make the game settings L.O.G's choice vehicles and solo play only. Once you finish the game you played, load up another, rinse and repeat until you have done all them. There are a total of seven games to complete - four sports and three races

 L.O.G. Ranked Apprentice (20 points)
Win one of the new DLC multiplayer games in a ranked match

This one is a nice big boot to the face from Rare because no one plays online anymore. It took me almost an hour to find a match, so good luck! When your in the xbox live multiplayer screen choose a ranked match and your prefered playlist as L.O.G's lost challenges. Be aware that if it cannot find you a match in a certain amount of time it will automatically select another playlist. If you want to boost this achievement, please consult the Achievement Trading Thread.

 Old Ssskool Ssseekrit Area (20 points)
Klungo not ssstupid, ussse old fake wall trick to hide Klungo goodnesss

This can be obtained in Level 7 of Klungos Arcade game. When you see your first gravity jump, avoid it by not jumping to it. Instead, wait and jump off the ledge, kill the flying alien, and walk right into the wall. As soon as you come out through the other side, the achievement will unlock

 Pointless Achievement (5 points)
Find the door to L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges

This will be your first achievement and is story related. As soon as you start up your save file, go to the back of Mumbo's Motors and press to go in the door. Once the screen loads, the achievement will pop

 Sssave The Universsse! (30 points)
Complete all Lost Challenges in L.O.G.'s Choice and Player's Choice vehicles

Once you beat a challenge, you will unlock the players choice challenge for that specific event. These challenges are the same thing except for the fact that you use your own vehicles and the requirements for a jiggy and T.T trophy are raised. Once you beat the normal challenges and these challenges, this achievement will unlock.

 Paint the Town Gold (40 points)
Complete all of L.O.G.'s lost challenges to TT standard

The hardest achievement in the DLC. There are a total of 12 T.T trophy's to obtain - six for L.O.G's choice vehicles and six for Players choice vehicles. These challenges are all about building the perfect vehicle for each challenge.

If your about to throw your controller out the window, then I would advise you check the leaderboards and watch a video or two to see how other people did it.

 Ultimate - Played The Game (50 points)
Show Sssuper Klungo the real meaning of sssuper

NOTE BEFORE ATTEMPTING ACHIEVEMENT: This arcade game DOES NOT unlock right away. In order to get it you have to get a Jiggy or better in all challenges including the players choice ones.

There are a total of eight levels and they are roughly the same difficulty as the original. The new twist to this is that Klungo now has a pistol. You jump by pressing and shoot the gun by pressing . The main thing here is timing, shooting the green aliens and jumping over the indestructible red ones. Its also a very good idea to have the levels memorized because some levels require you to kill aliens and fly in a certain pattern

 Halfway Home (15 points)
Complete all of L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges once

This will be obtained once you get at least a jiggy ranking in all the challenges.

 Wheels on Fire (20 points)
Burn an opponent's vehicle until it falls apart at the seams

This is best done on the Mumbo challenge with the L.O.G's choice vehicle. What I did was corner the last guy (Bottles) so he couldn't move and spammed the button. As soon as my ammo ran out, he was teleported back on the track with a car that was undamaged as soon as that happened I got the achievement.

NOTE: According to Brownx360a this can be done with a custom vehicle with lasers attached to it.

 Crowd Pleaser (20 points)
Knock down all of the supporting cast in Ben Hurdle

This one can be very time consuming and frusturating. While in the Test-o-track, talk to Wumba to start the Ben Hurdle challenge. When it starts, completely ignore the challenge itself and go for the carboard cut outs of the characters. You must knock them over and there are a few that are not in the path of the course. I believe they are on the top of the big loop when you start and in the tunnel
