There are 25 achievements with a total of 1000 points.
NOTE: Gotham TV and the tournaments have stopped running, so if you don't have the related achievements already you can only obtain a maximum of 905 from this game
Step 1 - Career mode:
At the start, I also recommend buying the Ariel Atom. While progressing through the game you'll earn a considerable amount of credits, it is recommended that you save these until you can afford one of the games top cars such as the Ferrari F50GT or the McLaren F1, this should give you the advantage later in the game.
Step 2 - Career mode on platinum:
Step 3 - Online:
Next you need to qualify for a tournament. Tournaments are still ran weekly however it is not known how much longer that this will be the case. Also, different countries have different tournaments so depending on your country this may be unobtainable altogether. Furthermore, tournaments still require a lot of skill to qualify for them. It is recommended that the day before the tournament qualification ends is when you should try to qualify, as this will ensure that you don’t get kicked out of the qualification zone. Also make sure that you turn up for your allotted time slot because even if you qualify, you’ll miss out on the achievement.
Finally, the achievements that require you to do events in modes such as cat & mouse and cone capture are easiest when boosted with friends online. However these four can also be done offline using a second controller in necessary.
Step 4 - Finishing up:
Also you may be missing the style racer achievement. The description of this can be confusing. When it says "kudos for every maneuver" it means in a single race and this can be quite hard to do. There are several methods of getting it and a quick search on a popular search engine will reveal some in depth guides for this achievement (Note: you don't need kudos for cone gate as this is obviously not obtainable when in a regular race).
Finally you should wrap up any other achievements you have left, see the achievement guide for more details.
[x360a would like to thank Caramel Cardinal for this Road Map]
|This is awarded after the play gains 1,000 kudos points. These points are awarded for any stylish or dangerous moves performed such as drifting or going on two wheels for a while. This should be easy to get as hard turns and drifting can be achieved easily.|
|This is a lot harder. You need a total of 160,000 points to get this. Throughout your career there will be certain scenarios which require you to go through cone gates to receive kudos points. If you perform at a platinum level you will be getting around 20,000 kudos points a game. If you’re not good enough for platinum, just go for the target area for a silver medal. Once you have done that scenario, do it again a few more times. Try beating your previous record. Not only will this get you more kudos points but will give you practise for a platinum run through.|
|475,000 kudos points are required for this. That’s at least 2 play throughs on career mode. A good place to gain at least 10,000 kudos points on silver medal alone is the Nurburgring scenarios. The short race on that track has plenty of twists and turns to rack up some kudos points. However, just doing this can be painfully dull so I would advise going for it only if you have great patience. Again, if you’re a platinum player, this will come so much faster than any easier setting.|
|When you are in the garage looking for a car to drive in, go to the option ‘look around’ and this lets you walk around your garage. If you do this you will notice two arcade machines in the corner. One is for geometry wars evolved and the other for geometry wars. Play on one then quit it. This will send you back to the starting screen for PGR3. Simply go back into your garage and play on the machine you didn’t play before. Quit that and you should get the achievement.|
|Making a track is good fun and it’s also very quick. A very quick way to do this is when you get to the editing screen, just press for a random track. Press done and save it. Repeat this 9 times and voila! You have an achievement.|
|In every race you do, you have a chance to take a picture. To do this press start and go to the option ‘take photo’. This will take you to a new screen. Move the camera angle how you want then save the photo. Do this in every city (London, New York, Las Vegas, Tokyo & Nurburgring). It doesn’t matter how you save the photo just as long as you save at least once in every city.|
|Ferrari Owners Club||45|
|Ferrari Owners Club.|
For this you need a lot of money and you need to have progressed far into career mode so you could have unlocked all cars. This is a list of the ones you need:
Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale - 425 bhp
In order to unlock the achievement, you will need all of these cars in your garage at the same time. Don’t worry about space. You will be given a new garage when you run out of space. The last garage can hold almost all of these cars so you can keep your current favourites in another garage.
|Lamborghini Owners Club||45|
|Lamborghini Owners Club.||(1)|
Exactly the same as the Ferrari Owners Club. After gaining all of the Ferrari cars, sell the ones you don’t want. This will free up space in your garages and it will give you some extra cash. Remember, if you run out of cash, do a few career scenarios on the silver or gold setting. This will soon raise your bank balance. This is a list of the cars you need:
Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary - 455 bhp
|Exotic Car Club||45|
|Exotic Car Club.||(11)|
|This achievement is slightly easier on the bank balance as there are less cars to buy. This is a list of the cars you need:|
Callaway Sledgehammer Twin Turbo - 898 bhp
Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 - 401 bhp
Ford GT - 550 bhp
McLaren F1 LM - 680 bhp
RUF CTR Yellow Bird - 469 bhp
Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 - 450 bhp
TVR Cerbera Speed 12 - 800 bhp
You should only get this when you have a comfortable bank balance as the McLaren F1 LM is the second dearest car in the market at $1,250,000.
|This requires that you complete every event with at least a steel trophy. Seeing as though that’s the lowest trophy you will get this easily. Just make sure all events have at least one trophy.|
|This is also very easy. The kudos race requirements are low and the CPU players are easy to beat. Just use any car you are comfortable with and rack up your bank balance for some of the super cars that will become available to you later on.|
| This is slightly harder than bronze. At this stage you can certainly feel the difference. If you are a veteran driving gamer then this will come easy to you. Simply do all events with at least a silver medal.|
|This is where it gets considerably tougher. You will notice most requirements for races are doubled (kudos races) or halved (hot lap races). If you have already played all the tracks in every city then this shouldn’t be too hard. Again, if you’re a seasoned driving gamer, this won’t be too hard.|
|This really separates the men from the boys. Got what it takes? Use the best cars only (Ferrari F50 GT and McLaren F1 LM). It can be extremely hard in places so you need to keep your cool. Play nasty by swerving in front of your rivals or making them spin on the grass. With enough practise you will get this. When you do this achievement you will definitely have enough kudos to be rank 1 so there will be no need to visit single player career mode again.|
Note: If you do platinum on the first run through, you will be awarded all other Champion achievements as they are stackable.
|Style Racer Badge||50|
|Style Racer Badge||(7)|
|Badges are only given when playing career mode. The badges required for this achievement are there for the online career mode. You can do them in any event.|
25m power slide: Do this on a very long corner. Break like usual but with the left analogue stick, lean into the break but not too much and you’ll be getting a nice power slide. With a little practise this will be very easy.
10x Combo: Simply do 10 stylish manoeuvres in quick succession. This is easiest to do on a Nurburgring track as all the corners are tight and close together.
25k Online Kudos: This cannot be done on the ‘Playtime’ mode. All that is needed is 25,000 kudos points. This will take a few races but it’s not hard at all.
1k Kudos in a race: Almost impossible not to achieve. Just do the race as you usually would and make sure to drift around any corners you see.
Kudos for every manoeuvre: This can be relatively tough to get. Every time you turn a corner or go up a small hill make sure to get some kudos point. Do this by power sliding or going so fast up the hill you get some air kudos.
|Pro Racer Badge||60|
|Pro Racer Badge||(1)|
|This can be achieved very easily if you have one of the two super cars: Ferrari F50 GT or the McLaren F1 LM. Go to the options on the main menu and set the transmission to manual. Now select a speed challenge event in the career mode. Select hard core and simply cross the finish line with the required time. It can take a few tries but it’s worth 60G. As its manual you will need to change gears yourself. Press to go up a gear when the speed-o-meter gets to the top.|
|Gotham TV Sports Fan||15|
|Gotham TV Sports Fan||(12)|
|After any race you do, you are given the option to save your reply. Just do this once. Call it whatever you like then forget about it. After the race, go to the main menu and select Gotham TV. You should be able to watch recent matches’ people have played. Once you start watching one, abandon the event and repeat a further 9 times. After you have done this, press your Xbox guide button and press for the dashboard. When you get back to the dashboard, loads PGR3 back up again. The achievement should unlock then.|
|People usually get confused as to where to do this. It cannot be achieved in playtime. It has to be done in the multiplayer career mode. Random matches in the career mode are recorded. Just before entering the match, the bottom of the loading screen will have “This race is being recorded by Gotham TV”. That’s the point where you should happily come in whatever place you feel like in the race as you will get 30G for it. Make sure to finish the race to the end though.|
|Race Against the Clock||50|
|Race Against the Clock|
|There are 37 tracks in total in PGR3. For this achievement you need to set a lap time for each one of them. You don’t need to beat anybody’s lap time for this, you just need to race one lap then quit the track for the next one. It can be a long dull process but it’s extremely easy for 50G.|
|This is another achievement which requires that you go to multiplayer career mode. You need to earn the following badges:|
50 online races: This can take a while. You do not need to win the races. You just need to finish 50 online races.
Start Last/Finish 1st: If you find yourself starting at the back of the grid at the start, play to win. Alternatively, you can get your mates to wait while you win the race in order to get this.
3-event win streak: This can be challenging if you’re up against some good players. To avoid getting annoyed, playing with friends would be the best option. Ask them to wait whilst you win 3 races in a row.
Clean race: Play it very safe. Do not hit anything. Do not ruin your kudos bonus by clipping the side of a wall. Do not power slide. Just race, slowly. You may lose but you will earn this badge. It can be quite hard as people might try to make you swerve so again, do this with friends.
Win each scenario: Now this will take a while. Complete every online career event. This can be done easily with a few friends but is time consuming. Just play as you would if you were playing single player career mode.
|DLC: Game Title Update|
|Cost: Free Achievements: 5 Points: 100|
|Qualify for a tournament and play in the first elimination round.||(6)|
|Two words here: Skill required. There are set dates for tournaments throughout the year and weeks before the tournament starts their qualifying rounds. This is where you are given a track and you have to beat a designated time. It’s a lot like hot lop but much harder. If you manage to finish the lap before the time runs out. Make a note of the tournament and simply play in it. It doesn’t matter if you do badly in the first stages, just as long as you play. Note: PGR3 is a very old game and since the 4th one is out tournaments may have stopped. If this is the case then this cannot be achieved.|
|Win a Cat & Mouse Event as the player in the E class vehicle|
|Cat and mouse is essentially just a game of 3v3. 2 cats and 1 mouse. The mouse is an E class car whilst the cats are A class cars. It’s the job of the mice to get to the end nice and quickly. It’s the job of the cats to stop the other teams mouse from finishing the race first. It can be tough if you’re playing skilled players. Get some mates and just let each other win. If you think that is too much of a cheat just play smart. You must win as the mouse to get this achievement.|
|Win a Cat & Mouse Event as a player in a non E class vehicle.|
|Being an A class car and stopping an E class car is easy and fun. You should get no real trouble in stopping the opponent’s mouse. Just make sure your mouse crosses the finish line first and you’ll get this achievement.|
|Cone Capture Champion||15|
|Win a Cone Capture Event||(2)|
|Get a mate and go around a familiar track. To capture a cone you just need to ride over it. You will know if you have captured if as it will turn a different colour. If you can’t seem to win just ask him nicely if he’ll take a fall for the next one.|
|Team Cone Capture Champion||10|
|Be on the winning team of a Team Cone Capture Event|
|Exactly the same as Cone Capture Champion except there are two teams of 1. If your friend keeps beating you, just ask to win. Take the majority of the cones before the time runs out and you have yourself another achievement.|
