|Tracker of Deeds||10|
|Follow any five Hero Feed items (Xbox LIVE only)||(42)|
To get this achievement you have to press Blue/X on the main menu. This will bring up the Hero Feeds, from here you have to look at scores/challenges set by people on your friends list (it will say at the bottom “go to Quest (or Quickplay+), select that by pressing Green/A. Once you are in the lobby back out and report on another 4 different feeds. Once you have done the the achievement should unlock.
|Expand your song library to at least 115 songs of any type. Be creative!||(12)|
The game has 93 on disc songs, meaning you have to add another 22 to get this achievement. The choice is yours on how you want to do it. You can import songs from previous Guitar Hero instalments (Guitar Hero: World Tour, Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero, Guitar Hero: Smash/Greatest Hits, Guitar Hero: Metallica), this will give you more than enough tracks to get the achievement (but you will have to pay for them). The second is to buy DLC from the GH Store, but this once again costs money with single tracks costing 160MSP or a track pack of 3 costing 440MSP (There are several Track Packs available for free from the marketplace, downloading these also count towards the achievement). The simple and free way to get this achievement is to either create your own or download songs from GHTunes for free. This achievement should unlock after you have gained the number of tracks and enterd the quickplay+ song selection screen.
|Deploy Star Power a total of 100 times (Quest)||(1)|
There isn’t much advice that can be given on this really, it is just earned from natural progression through the game. Every time it is possible for you to deploy star power, do so. This should unlock somewhere in the 3rd or 4th characters quest.
|Hit a cumulative total of 75,000 notes (Quest)||(7)|
See “Gem Hoarder” for more information.
|Hit a cumulative total of 150,000 notes (Quest)||(24)|
This achievement isn’t hard, just can be time consuming. It greatly depends on difficulty and how good you are. If you play on expert and can hit a majority of the notes you could unlock this very quickly. But if you play hard and struggle a lot, this might take a lot longer. My suggestion is if by the second playthrough Quest you still haven’t unlocked this is to just keep playing songs you like, or songs that have lots of notes that you know you can hit.
|Champion of Challenges||20|
|Target another person's score on any Challenge and earn a higher grade than they did (Local QP+)||(11)|
This one is simple enough to get and doesn’t require too much skill. First of all select a song you wish to play (I suggest “2112 pt.5 – Oracle: The Dream” by Rush as it is the shortest on disc song and fairly easy) and when it brings up the options for the song on the right select Star Challenges. This brings up the challenge menu for that song, scroll down to a challenge for your instrument (make sure to select high score) and press blue before selecting it (this changes the leader board to overall). It will then take you to the little leader board in the middle, scroll all the way down to the bottom as this is the worst song on the leader board (therefore easiest to beat) and select. Now all you have to do is beat that grade (not score, so if the current grade is gold you need to get platinum or diamond), this shouldn’t be hard as the chances are this person had a very bad run on the song. Once you have beaten the set grade the achievement is yours.
|Target your own score on a Challenge and earn a higher grade than you did previously (Local QP+)||(8)|
This one is similar to Champion of Challenges and again doesn’t require too much skill. First of all select a song you wish to play (I suggest “2112 pt.5 – Oracle: The Dream” by Rush as it is the shortest on disc song (and it is fairly easy) and when it brings up the options for the song on the right select Star Challenges. This brings up the challenge menu for that song, scroll down to a challenge for your instrument (make sure to select high score) and select it. It will then take you to the little leader board in the middle, if you have already played the song highlight yourself and select. Now all you have to do is beat that grade (not score, so if the current grade is gold you need to get platinum or diamond), this shouldn’t be hard if you previously had a very bad run on the song. Once you have beaten your previously set grade the achievement is yours.
|Earn all Stars from any one song (excluding the Power Challenge) (QP+)||(44)|
To get this achievement you need to complete all 5 sets of challenges (Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals and Band) to 1 song. On top of that you also need to 6 star the song at least once, you get 6 stars by Full Comboing it (100% notes hit with no over strums). Currently the easiest known song to get this on is "Bleed It Out" by Linkin Park. It has 3 Guitar Chalenges, 2 Bass, 2 Drums, 2 Vocals and 3 Band. Unfortunately you will need expert skills on all instruments to complete the challenges, but luckily it is one of the easiest all round songs. You will just have to keep practising at all challenges and hope they unlock. If you need to find a Band to play with for the Band Challenges use the Achievement Trading Thread.
Note: 1 of the Band Challenges requires all instruments used to be different.
|Scions of Excess||20|
|Earn an 11x Band multiplier with any 4-player Band configuration (QP+)||(20)|
A fairly simple one here, as a four piece band you need to get an 11x Band Multiplier. The Band Multiplier is located in the top right corner next to your score. Luckily for this achievement you can have any combination of instruments and difficulties, so if you have 4 mics available you could do this on beginner vocals all by yourself. To get an 11x Band Multiplier you have to have all for player on a 4x multiplier, all have star power available to deploy and you have to be in a band moment (Band moments are activated by hitting all the fire notes with no over strums). Once you are in a band moment and all have star power ready activate it to get you up to an 11x band multiple. If you need band mates for use the Achievement Trading Thread.
|Player of the Ear Worm||10|
|Play any one non-GH(tm)Tracks song 10 or more times (QP+, Quest, Competitive)||(4)|
This achievement is very self explanatory really. You must play a song 10 times that that is not a GHTunes song. There is no star or score requirement, you just need to pass it. To find out your currently most played song press orange in the quickplay+ menu to bring up the sort options and then select “play frequency” this will put your most played song at the top, but unfortunately it does not tell you how many times you have played it. If you want to do this quickly and are not bothered at which song you play “2112 Pt. 5 – Oracle: The Dream” by Rush is the shortest on disc song (and it is fairly easy).
|Patron of the Arts||10|
|5-Star any GH(tm)Tracks song containing at least 200 notes (QP+)||(8)|
This achievement shouldn’t cause to many problem. Most (if not all) Neversoft created GHTracks contain at least 200 notes on each instrument. Just play the song and try to 5-Star it. If you are having troubles with this achievement try downloading a song GHTunes, each song list the number of notes on each instrument so download one that sounds relatively easy and try to 5-Star it.
|Apostates of Orthodoxy||10|
|5-Star any song as a 4-player Non-Standard Band, with all players on Medium or higher (QP+)||(4)|
This shouldn't give you any difficulties as you can do this in many ways, you can set up 4 mics and play the game singing into all the mics, you can use match making to find players (most play at least medium online), or you can use the Achievement Trading Thread. It doesn't matter what song you chose or what instruments you play, just as long as you 5 star it. To help make sure you get 5 stars it is best to all activate star power at the same time to increase the band multiplier netting you more points (even better if you activate it in a band moment).
|Bearers of the Standard||10|
|5-Star any song as a 4-player Standard Band, with all players on Medium or higher (QP+)||(44)|
For this one you need to be a 4 piece standard band (Bass, Drums, Guitar & Vocals), all playing medium difficulty and 5 star the song. The main annoyance in this achievement is finding the band, so if you need band members try the Achievement Trading Thread. There isn't to much advice to be given here apart from score high by using star power at the same time and if possible during band moments.
|Earn 1,000,000 points or more in a single play of a song in a Power Challenge (QP+)||(43)|
This achievement can be a pain if you are not to good at Expert difficulty, especially on Guitar as this is the easiest to get 1,000,000 on since a lot of songs contain a lot of chords. To get this achievement you need to score 1,000,000 points in a song by yourself in quickplay+ Power Challenge. The easiest song (so far) that I have found is “Aqualung” by Jethro Tull, it’s a long song with lots of chords and the start and end of it are relatively slow. So select this song and go to Star Challenges and select the first option which is Power Challenge. It will now ask you to choose your powers (chose wisely as you can only have 2), I find that Star Power Nova+ & Multiplier Extender+ are the best as Multiplier Extender+ boost you to 6x multiplier instead of the usual 4x, then when you use Star Power your Multiplier turns to 36x thanks to Star Power Nova. The best thing to do in this song is collect the first 3 Star Powers and hold on to them until the long stream of chords that are nice and slow, use star power for the first time here. By the time Star Power runs out you should be well over half way there. From now on use Star Power where you think is best and when you have a 6x multiplier so you can raise it to 36x. If all has gone well you should end up with well over 1,000,000.
You can also earn this by using the same tactics above using Star Power Nova and Amplifier, this gives you the chance to play it on easier difficulties (but a better run may be needed).
You can also do this on other songs that are big chord fests from imports or DLC but this song is one of the only on disc songs that is very easy to get it on.
|Manager of Fate||10|
|Create and play a custom playlist of at least 5 songs, and earn 5 Stars on 5 of the songs (QP+)||(4)|
This one is relatively easy, 5 star 5 songs in a playlist in quickplay+. It is up to you how you wish to do this, you can select 5 simple songs or 5 short songs. You create a playlist by selecting your first song and then “choosing add to playlist” after you have selected all songs press the start button to begin. There is no difficulty requirement so you can play on easy if you wish. GHTracks do work for this achievement, so if you want to you can create 5 one note songs and play them to get the achievement. If you don't want to create songs you can use on disc songs instead. Here is a list of the simple and short songs on each instrument:
Note: If you are getting to the end of a song and don't think you will 5 star it, you can pause and restart. This will not affect the achievement.
|Mocker of Fate||10|
|Create and play a 5-song random playlist, earning 5 Stars on each song (QP+)||(10)|
Similar to Manager of Fate but this time you create a random playlist, you still need to 5 star all songs though, so if you aren’t able to 5 star all songs on your current difficulty, it might be an idea to drop down one. To create a random playlist go to quickplay and press green to bring up the play song menu on the right, select “Random Songs” and the choose 5. Once you have completed the playlist and 5 starred all songs the achievement is yours.
|Beat any song with a final score of 133,337 (QP+, Competitive)||(18)|
This is simple enough to gain if you download the song “133337” on GHTunes the song is created by danpsfx. Using this song on expert guitar should easily get you the achievement.
|Beat any song with a final score ending in 000 as a Band (QP+)||(12)|
This achievement is simple if you play the song I have created in GHTunes called "000". It is a simple song with 2 open bass notes and the rest being guitar with red & green chords. You will need to play this on expert and if you 100% it you will get a score that ends in 000. You will need to Guitar Controllers for this achievement. After the song has finished you will have to wait a little bit for it to finish as GHTracks have to be a minimum of 20 seconds long to be uploaded. This track is designed to be playable by one person.
|As a single player, earn Gold or higher on three or more Challenges on a single play of a song (QP+)||(7)|
This achievement requires you to play on Guitar as most (if not all) other instruments only have 2 challenges on most songs. The idea is to get all 3 challenges in a single run of the song, so check the challenges required and go for one that suits your abilities best. "Bleed It Out" by Linkin Park is a good song choice as the guitar part is relatively easy and so are the challenges.
|As a single player, earn Diamond on two or more Challenges on a single play of a song (QP+)||(11)|
This achievement is very similar to the "Gold Master" requires you to get 2 diamond level challenges complete. These are the highest possible to gain. The idea is to get 2 challenges in a single run of the song, so check the challenges required and go for one that suits your abilities best. The chances are that for most challenges expert is required, so "Bleed It Out" by Linkin Park is a good choice.
|Full-Combo any tutorial exercise (no missed notes or overstrums)||(2)|
This achievement is an easy one to get. Under the play section from the main menu there is a mode called training. Select that and any one of the tutorials, most of the things it gives you should be relatively easy for most players. Select basic to make it as easy as possible for you, then just hit all the notes that follows. You must not overstrum (strum when there is no notes on screen).
|Recruit Warrior Judy (Quest)||(2)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Judy Nails is the third character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Judy Nails into Warrior Judy after gaining 45 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Been Caught Stealing” by Jane’s Addiction to unlock the achievement.
|Unleash Warrior Johnny (Quest)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Johnny Napalm is the first character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Johnny Napalm into Warrior Johnny after gaining 35 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Theme from Spiderman” by The Ramones to unlock the achievement.
|Charm Warrior Casey (Quest)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Casey Lynch is the seventh character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Casey Lynch into Warrior Casey after gaining 24 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Renegade” by Styx to unlock the achievement.
|Release Warrior Lars (Quest)||(1)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Lars Umlaut is the sixth character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Lars Umlaut into Warrior Lars after gaining 27 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Paranoid (Live)” by Metallica & Ozzy Osbourne to unlock the achievement.
|Awaken Warrior Axel (Quest)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Axel Steel is the eighth and final character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Axel Steel into Warrior Axel after gaining 40 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Bat Country” by Avenged Sevenfold to unlock the achievement.
|Liberate Warrior Echo (Quest)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Echo Tesla is the second character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Echo Tesla into Warrior Echo after gaining 27 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Uprising” by Muse to unlock the achievement.
|Free the Demigod of Rock (Quest)|
To get this achievement you have to warrior up all 8 characters then proceed to the last unlocked chapter. This can part of the game can be quite tough but not if you play it smart. Before you play any songs in this gig you have to choose 2 bands made of 4 characters from the 8. Choose carefully so the powers can be at their most effective. The thing that makes this gig difficult is that not only do you have to pass the songs, but you also have to get 12 stars before the end to use the power of the Legendary Guitar. Both songs to be played are by Megadeth, the first band has to play “Holy Wars... The Punishment Due” and the second has to defeat “This Day We Fight!” I suggest trying to even out your powers as much as possible to make both songs a relatively easy task.
|Regain the Legendary Guitar (Quest)|
This one can’t be missed as you need to get the Legendary Guitar to progress through quest after you have gained the first 4 characters. The achievement will unlock after you have completed all 7 parts to Rush’s “2112.”
|Savior of Rock||50|
|Defeat the scourge of Rock (Quest)|
After freeing the Demigod of Rock you have to play as him to defeat the Scourge of Rock. The song you will play is by Megadeth and was written for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock so contains many guitar solos. The song is called “Sudden Death” and you have to get 30 stars in the song defeat the Scourge of Rock. 30 stars sounds a bit demanding up to this point considering you probably haven’t got more than 12 stars or so in a song, but try not to worry as this Demigod of Rock has all 8 powers combined. For most of the song you will constantly be in Star Power and on a 36x multiplier. If you are having difficulties on your chosen difficulty then drop down one and you probably have no problems gaining the 30 required stars.
|Earn a total of 100 Stars (QP+)|
See “Ace Astrologer” for more information.
|Earn a total of 500 Stars (QP+)|
See “Ace Astrologer” for more information.
|Earn a total of 1000 Stars (QP+)||(2)|
See “Ace Astrologer” for more information.
|Dominate any 2 chapters of Quest (Earn all the Power Stars from any 2 chapters of Quest)|
See “Perfect Perfectionist” for more information.
|Earn a total of 2000 Stars (QP+)||(12)|
This might sound like a lot of Stars but in reality it is not. Each song has a maximum total of 42 stars available (6 for 100%ing a song without over strums, and 36 available for challenges) so a minimum of 48 songs is required to get this achievement. But that requires you to complete all challenges on those songs, an easier way is to mix and match challenges with the power play mode (which can net you around 15 stars a song). All you have to do to get a high amount of stars from power play is select your two powers to be ones that give you 5 stars e.g. resurrection. This will give you 10 stars just from the powers, so all you have to do is play the song well to get at least 5 more stars on top of that.
To check how many Quickplay+ stars you have go to "My Stuff" from the main menu and then select "Rewards Tracker" your total stars will be shown at the bottom.
|Dominate any 4 chapters of Quest (Earn all the Power Stars from any 4 chapters of Quest)||(1)|
See “Perfect Perfectionist” for more information.
|Earn all the Power Stars from all character chapters (Quest)||(19)|
To earn all the Power Stars you have to dominate each characters chapter (including the Demigod of Rocks chapter). To dominate a chapter you have to get 40 stars on every song in that chapter. This achievement shouldn’t be hard to get as you now have everysingle power available and will spend most of the time in a 36x multiplier throughout songs, but this will be time consuming as it involves going through every song again. If you are having difficulty gaining 40 stars on a song try dropping down a difficulty or two to make it easier on yourself.
|Play 100 notes in a single GH(tm)Jam session||(8)|
This is another easy achievement to gain. Simply go to create>GHTunes from the main menu and then select GHJam. From here select your instrument and when the highway is on screen strum or hit until the achievement unlocks.
|Complete a song with only a Guitarist and Bassist, both earning the same score (QP+)||(18)|
This achievement is simple enough if you have to guitar controllers. I have added a song to GHTunes called “String Twins”. It is a simple song of one note on guitar and one bass with a 3 bar gap. The first note is a green on guitar, the second note follows 3 bars latter on the bass with an open. So all you have to do is hit those two notes on separate controllers and the achievement is yours. You will need to play on Expert Guitar and Bass but it is simple. After the song has finished you will have to wait a little bit for it to finish as GHTracks have to be a minimum of 20 seconds long to be uploaded. This track is designed to be playable by one person.
|Earn 40 Power Stars on a single song (Quest)||(2)|
This is only available on the second run through of quest. After you have defeated the Scourge of Rock you have the chance to dominate each chapter. This means going back and completing a song with all powers available. This makes the achievement really easy as you are quickly gaining stars. By then end of the song as long as you have 35 stars and 5 Ankhs collected you will be on 40 stars when the song has finished.
|Beat Bohemian Rhapsody as a band with all on Medium or higher, and at least 2 vocalists (QP+)||(28)|
This one is fairly simple to achieve. You have to pass "Bohemian Rhapsody" as a band, with the minimum difficulty being medium. Simply set up 2 mics on a local game (one can be a Xbox 360 headset) and make sure they are both on medium. Start up the song and you shouldn't really have any troubles as medium vocals aren't that hard. Just as long as you sing into both mics and save star power for sections where you feel like you are about to fail. If you don't have 2 mics try finding someone to help out in the Achievement Trading Thread.
|Beat 2112 Part 4 as a Standard band with 3 or more members, all on Medium or higher difficulty (QP+)||(17)|
The only real difficult part to this achievement is getting the standard 4 piece band together. You will need a vocalist, a bassist, a guitar and a drummer for this achievement. Only 3 of the band members need to be on medium meaning you can leave a space for a vocalist on beginner (as they are the hardest to find). The rest of the band need to be on at least medium and once you have passed the song the achievement should unlock.If you need to find band members to help out, post in the Achievement Trading Thread.
|Beat Holy Wars... The Punishment Due as a solo Bassist on Hard or higher difficulty (QP+)||(9)|
Complete this song in Quickplay+ on Hard difficulty (or higher) while playing the bass guitar.
|Beat Fury of the Storm as a solo Drummer on Hard or higher difficulty (QP+)||(28)|
This achievement can be very hard for people who haven't played Hard or Expert drums at all, but I will try to help out here as much as possible. One of the main things to remember is that the main notes on drums are red (green if you are left handed) and bass drum. Also you are able to use Powers to help you pass the song, a good one to use is Resurrection as this gives you chances to stop yourself failing out. For your other Power choose something that you feel will give you the best chance.
Images for each of the beats described above can be found here.
|Beat Black Widow of La Porte as a solo Expert Guitarist (QP+, no Powers)||(54)|
Complete this song in Quickplay+ on Expert difficulty while playing the guitar and using no powers.
|Invoke Warrior Austin (Quest)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Austin Tejas is the fourth character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Austin Tejas into Warrior Austin after gaining 27 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Children of the Grave” by Black Sabbath to unlock the achievement.
|Summon Warrior Pandora (Quest)|
This is a Quest related achievement and you can’t really miss it. Pandora is the fifth character in your quest. This is unlocked by transforming Pandora into Warrior Pandora after gaining 24 stars. Once these stars have been gained you have to complete the song “Bodies” by Drowning Pool to unlock the achievement.
|Beat any song with a final score which is evenly divisible by 6 (QP+)||(17)|
Again another fairly simple achievement if you download a GHTunes song I have created called “Lucifers Account”. It is 6 green + red chords that have a total score of 600 points at the end. This score divides evenly by 6 so will unlock achievement. You will need to play on Expert Guitar but it is simple. After the song has finished you will have to wait a little bit for it to finish as GHTracks have to be a minimum of 20 seconds long to be uploaded.
|As a Standard Band, earn Gold or higher on 2 Band Challenges in a single play of a song (QP+)||(7)|
This one requires you to have a fairly good band together as in a song whilst playing as a standard band (Bass, Drums, Guitar & Vocals) you must obtain 2 band (not single) challenge medals. These usually require a certain score or a note streak, so before playing the song make sure you have all checked the challenge requirements and know what needs to be done. A fairly easy song to get this on is "Bleed It Out" by Linkin Park as it is relatively easy on all instruments. If you need band members try the Achievement Trading Thread.
|Play Pro Faceoff, Momentum, Momentum+, Streakers, Do or Die, and Perfectionist at least once each||(27)|
This can be done in two different ways. The first is to go on xbox live and play all the listed game modes until the achievement unlocks (you only need to play, not win). The second is if you have two controllers (either 2 Guitars, 2 Mics and Standard Xbox Controllers or 2 Drum Kits), then just select each mode listed and the achievement will unlock.
