The achievements in UFC Undisputed 2010 are a lot easier then in the 2009 version of the game, though there are a couple of achievements that require some skill and practice to get. In 2009 it was very easy to win all your fights throughout the career mode with exactly the same strike or submission method, but the AI has become somewhat smarter this time, so remember this is a Mixed Martial Arts game and not a Boxing game, so if you are having trouble against the AI, mix it up and be unpredictable.
For some achievements you might want the weakest opponent possible. For that it is recommended you to create another fighter in Create A Fighter, but don't fill in his stats at all. Some other achievements require you to defeat a non-CAF CPU on expert, so the weakest opponents possible come in handy there. I suggest using unlockable fighters here. To unlock these fighters, you have to enter a code in the main menu (don't worry, they don't disable achievements):
Tapout Crew (Mask, Punkass & Skyscraper):
Part 1: Offline achievements:
It is recommended to do the 'Learned Student' as the very first achievement to go for. If you are new to this game, you almost can't play the game without it and the tutorial refreshes everything for those who played Undisputed 2009 and there are a few changes between the games as well.
After that, go to Create A Fighter and create a fighter for the 'Puppeteer' achievement, take it to a Exhibition match against a weak opponent, win and get the 'Puppetmaster' achievement as well. In this same match you can also pull of 5 taunts in a just a few seconds time to score the 'Cocky S.O.B.' in the same fight. When doing some matches you can start to touch gloves for 'Honorable Fighter' but its reported that the AI isnt always helpful for this, so check the description for that achievement for an alternative method. Also check the descriptions of 'Fighting With Pride' and 'Bobbin' and Weavin' and try to grab these achievements as well while doing the Exhibition matches.
Setup another Exhibition, controlling a good submissionfighter against a weak CPU player on Expert and go for 'Submission Technician' and 'It's The Jits!' achievements in the same match, though you can go for those separately as well, if you're not capable on competing against an Expert CPU yet.
Now setup another game against an Expert CPU (pick the weakest possible) and give the 'Steamroller' and'Kay. Tee. Eff. Oh!' achievements a try, but its been reported that that last achievement pops up at very random moments for everyone and it is considered glitchy at this moment.
At this moment you should have won matches by KO and Submission and it's very likely also by TKO (if not, setup a match and go for a TKO), so the only stoppage left for the 'Cessation Sensation' achievement is the doctor stoppage, so check the descriptions of that achievement and 'It Slices, It Dices' and get both achievements in a single fight.
Part 2: Career Mode:
Of course everyone is free to play the game modes in the order they want it to play, but especially if you are not familiar with the UFC, it is recommended that you start out with the Career Mode, since thats where you start out small and go from amateur fighter through all the aspects of the UFC to become a superstar.
When playing the career mode, you can start going for 'Move Mastery' from the start and after a couple of fights you're already presented a chance to catch 'Blog Fodder' and if you keep on proceding through the Career Mode, 'Pound For Pound Champ', 'Hall Of Famer' and 'So Now You're A Fighter' come along as well.
Part 3: Offline Game Modes:
Right here the order you play the modes in doesnt matter, except that you have to finish the Title Mode in order to unlock the Title Defense Mode. Proceed through the modes in the order you like and grab 'As Real As It Gets', 'Budding Champion', 'Tournament Title Holder' and 'Ultimate Unlocks' and when you finished the Title Mode, also go for 'Veteran Champion', where you unlock most of the credits for the shop, which is needed to go for the 'Gotta Catch Em All' achievement.
Part 4: Online:
When going online, you can grab 'Coming Up Next...' and 'Warriors Come Out And Play' in just a few seconds. After that you have the choice to become really good online, or to grab a buddy or sign up in the Achievement Trading Thread to boost the achievements. See the achievements for details on boosting.
Invite a buddy into your camp and do a training session for 'Under Your Wing' and proceed on playing a lot of online matches for the 'White Belt', 'Baby Steps', 'Hot Hands' and the 'Yellow-, Purple-, Brown- and Black Belt' achievements and be sure to meet the requirements for 'Olympic Mixed Martial Artist'.
It might have unlocked a lot earlier, but by now you should have had the 'Testing The Waters' achievement by the time you played your first Xbox LIVE match.
A couple of the achievements are way too easy, most of the achievements require some work, but aren't hard at all and only a few offline achievements can be considered hard, but with some practice and dedication, everyone should get even the hardest achievements in the game.
It can be tricky to get all the online achievements on your own, but with some boosting it still requires time, but no skill.
