Rock Band Blitz is Harmonix's newest addition to the Rock Band family. Instead of using an controller peripheral, Blitz take notes from earlier Harmonix games, such as Frequency and Amplitude, and even from the popular PSP title Rock band: Unplugged. Boasting a 25 track set-list, as a player, you can export every track into your Rock Band library as well as play any legacy (previous DLC) tracks in Blitz for extra goodies.

[top]Tips & Strategies

Rock Band Blitz isn't about playing all the notes in the song, it's about scoring high. Your goal, mainly, is to maximize your multipier of each instrument (there's an indicator on the left side of the screen), before each checkpoint. With each successful pass the multiplier ranks up giving you more points and a higher multiplier to achieve.

Things like Power-ups and Blitz Mode will greatly increase the point value of notes, phrases and abilities. Finding the winning combination of Power-Ups and gameplay is vital to scoring big, and ultimately earning five gold stars.


1) Get familiar with the setlist, play all of them without any powers to get a feel of what you might think could be the winning formula.

2) Start using different combinations of Power-Ups to increase your scores.

3) Practice!


Calibrate Good Times
Calibrate your system for the optimal Rock Band Blitz experience.

This should be your very first trophy, it's super low effort. From the title screen, select Help & Options. From there select Calibration. From there you have two options. You can set the audio and video lag using the built in Wizard, or you can fiddle with the settings manually. Either way once you've set both in some way, you can move on.

Complete both Tutorials.

Much like the trophy above, select Help & Options from the title screen and from there How to Play. There you'll fine two short lessons; Basic Tutorial & Advanced Tutorial.

Once completed, the the trophy pops, but I strongly urge you to pay close attention. The lessons may be short, but there is a lot of things that will help you score high and do well.

Three for the Taking
Increase the Level Cap by 3X at 3 Checkpoints in a single song.

Checkpoints in Blitz are places in every song where you're rewarded for not neglecting your track multipliers.

For example, let's say you have all of your tracks are at 5x. Once you cross a checkpoint you'll be rewarded with 3 additional multiplier levels. On the other hand, if you have a track that is behind, crossing the checkpoint will give you less than needed. And if you're doing horribly; rewarded none.

Trick is to keep everything going, and most importantly, do not neglect instrument tracks, and this should come naturally.

Blitz and Giggles
Stay in Blitz Mode for at least 30 seconds in a single song.

Blitz Mode kicks in once you get all your multipliers going and you're making minimal mistakes. The tracks will stretch out and appear to run faster, almost increasing the difficulty. The key here is to watch when you're switching tracks. there are plenty of windows to switch and quickly pick up the next instrument without dropping notes. However, very few mistakes can be made and you can still retain Blitz Mode, but too many will stop it.

Stay in this fast paced mode for 30 seconds, and ping!

Perfect Finish
Finish a song with all tracks at the Level Cap.

This may sound like a chore, given the multiplier can reach staggering heights, but basically you need to finish the song with all of your tracks at the same level cap. So, like stated above, the trick is to not neglect any given track, giving your band a solid lead.

Never Better
Replay a song and beat your previous high score.

Very easy, and there's two ways to approach this.

One) You can play a song doing as well as you can then come back later once your skills have improved.

Two) Half ass a song on the first try, then immediately play it again, unleashing your amazing Rock Band skills.

This Means War
Challenge someone to a Score War.

From the title screen select play. From there you should see the entire layout that is Rock Band Blitz. By going right or left look under Recommend Here it will show you all the songs that the game recommends you to play, whether it be a Blitz song or otherwise. Some of them recommend you to challenge a friend on your friends list (they must also have the game). When prompted agree to send the challenge and this will pop.

Play 100% of the notes in a Guitar solo.

Much like every other Rock Band title, guitar tracks often have solos in them, and sometimes more than one. Simply pick a familiar tune and work at it until you've ace'd that particular section.

It'll be very easy to pick out. Once the solo begins, all other tracks will be empty during it's entirety.

If you're having trouble, I recommend the first solo in Give It Away by The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Good as Gold
Earn Gold stars on a song.

See Precious Medal.

Play a chain of 10 Flame Notes.

Flame Notes are the second Note Power-Up you unlock with your Cred level. Buy the Power-Up for a song and as you're playing, flaming purplish note will appear in any given track. When you play them, more and more notes 'catch fire' and spread all over the place and each succession will bee a bit harder to hit. Play 10 without letting the chain go by, and this ones yours.

Pinball Whiz
Keep the Pinball in play for at least 20 seconds.

Pinball Notes are the third unlockable Power-Up in the Note Power-Up category. Once in play, the pinball will race toward the top of the screen and zoom back down. It will zig and zag, changing tracks, it's up to you to switch around to bounce it back up in the track field with your Strike Area. Keep it up for 20 seconds and enjoy the show!

Rocket Scientist
Clear 20 notes with a single Bottle Rocket.

Bottle Rocket is the 4th Overdrive Power-Up you unlock with your cred level. To activate you must have a good supply of Overdrive from successfully hitting a series of white glowing notes. Once your power is high enough, you can launch a giant rocket on to on coming notes. The beast will take a chunk out of all of the instrument tracks at once.

Finding a place where there are a large group of notes isn't too tough. I recommend the later parts in the song Shine.

That Dozen Count
Play 12 of the songs included with Rock Band Blitz.

See Blitzed Out.

Blitzed Out
Play every song included with Rock Band Blitz.

Rock Band Blitz boasts a 25 track setlist with songs from all kinds of genres. This is one that you'll pick up naturally because you'll want to play through every song at least once anyway to flesh out a number of the other trophies.

See the Setlist in the Introduction.

Stellar Performance
Earn 5 stars on every song included with Rock Band Blitz.

See Precious Medal.

Precious Medal
Earn Gold stars on every song included with Rock Band Blitz.

This may very well be the hardest trophy in Rock band Blitz. Like every other Rock band title, your reward for doing extremely well is Five Gold Stars. The harder the difficulty, the harder it'll be to achieve that song status.

The trick is to balance gameplay with the various Power-Ups made available once unlocked. Some songs are are heavier in one or two instruments than others. Trying different combinations along with trying your best to hit notes is where you'll find yourself in working toward this.

The formulas below are what worked for myself, and in some cases may take some time to get just right. Don't be shy to stray from the chart below. This game is all about experimentation and most importantly practice when it comes to scoring big.
