Rock Band Blitz is a spinoff take on the original Rock Band series, where instead of using instruments, everything is played on track using just a standard controller. The game is similar to Rock Band Unplugged in design, but includes Power-Ups which can help you earn better scores. As this game does tend to have goals related to DLC, this guide will be split to accommodate anyone who may not be able to earn the extra gamerscore.
To start off, we'll be heading to the Tutorial to complete both the beginner and advance lessons, doing this will earn you "Self-Taught." Next, head to the Calibration option and proceed to tune the game so it's in sync. Upon confirmation for both audio and video settings, you'll earn "Calibrate Good Times." Last of all, before we start the game, head to the Recommended tab in the in-game menu, look for any song tagged with Score War, and then challenge a friend to compete, doing so will earn you "This Means War."
Step 2 (requires DLC):
If you don't have at least 300 songs, skip to Step 3.
While we prepare to build up coins for the later challenge, here's what needs to be done while playing enough songs to earn the following:
- "Greatest Hits"
- "Consummate Collector"
- "Party at Your Place"
At the same time, you'll want to play at least ten songs from the same artist/band, play at least 50 songs in the same genre (Pop Rock/Metal etc.), 50 songs from the same decade (80s/90s etc.), and one song that covers each decade from the '50's up to the '10's (201X). You'll earn the following along the way:
- "Loyal Fan"
- "Genre Diehard"
- "Decade Decadence"
- "Music Historian"
Play every song that is included with Blitz, which is a total of 25. Alongside the previous step, just by playing songs, you'll earn Cred and Coins which will earn you the following:
- "Extra Credit"
- "More Power to You"
- "That Dozen Count"
- "Blitzed Out"
Having done everything else, you'll be using all the coins accumulated to buy Power-Ups which is required to earn Gold Stars. This task will take a while, but you should be prepared now having time to understand how the game works. While aiming for the Gold Star cutoff for all the Blitz tracks, you'll earn the following:
- "Big Spender"
- "Good as Gold"
- "Stellar Performance"
- "Precious Medal"
Replaying any song, and earning a high score will get you "Never Better."
Step 5 (Cleanup):
If there are still Power-Ups which you have yet to use, check the requirements to what should be done to earn its respective achievement. You'll probably earn the following just by playing or while going for Gold Stars, but these should also come along in time:
- "Blitz and Giggles"
- "Three for the Taking"
- "Perfect Finish"
Side Note - Rock Band Central:
This game needs to be connected to the server to earn cred and coins, and to be able to update your score. Because of this, I will be marking anything that has a connection to related achievements as online only. I'll change it accordingly depending on how all the systems in place will work.
