[top]Tips & Strategies

Tip: From the start of this game, always push mongo, depending on what stance you ride, you will either press or . Mongo is when you push with your front foot, and your back foot stays on the board (In real life, NEVER skate like this, for your own good. Trust me.). This is to get the only hidden trophy in the game, Taste The Mongo (5000 mongo pushes).

Here is the clip of when i got this platinum. Something you can look forward to before reading my guide
YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

[top]Trophies

[top]
Platinum Trophy
Platinum Trophy

Do I really have to explain? :p

[top]
On Top Of The World
Perform an invert on one of the highest points in the city in career mode

You'll only be able to get this trophy very late in the game. Once you have completed each Deathrace, and then you will want to teleport to the SV Peak. Once you're there, go down the stairs, and perform a Handplant on any of the Quarter Pipes. There you have it.

[top]
Skater Evolved
Get off your board in career mode

This is the first trophy you want to get. You just have to press and there you have it. Lol.

[top]
I Like To Move It
Move your first object in career mode

[top]
That's the Way
Beat all of Danny Way's film challenges

After beating every Plan B challenge, you will have access to Danny Way's film challenges. This is an easy trophy, you just have to get pretty far into the story mode to get it.

[top]
GVR Champ
Win the GVR Contest

If you do all the Street Challenges, you will get to the GVR contest. Win this contest for the trophy.

[top]
Big Air Champ
Win the San Van-a-Slamma

If you do all the Tranny Challenges, you will get to the San Van-a-Slamma. Win this contest for the trophy.

[top]
Still Alive?
Win a Deathrace in career mode

On your map, click on a Deathrace participate in one. These can get really frustrating and I find them the worst part of the game as you are racing down big hills and crashing into cars and skaters. Keep trying and you'll win.

Hint: Do not go top speed or you will crash. Keep a decent speed and press to slow down before turns.

[top]
Race Hero
Win all races in career mode

This trophy was probably the only one that got me frustrated as the last couple of deathraces are a big pain. I suggest not doing them all at once, thank me for saving you a new controller later because you'll probably want to smash yours on your TV. Lol.

[top]
Where's my TV show?
Beat all Rob Dyrdek challenges

These are pretty fun. There is a total of 7 Rob Dyrdek challenges, the only tough one is when you have to do a 360 flip to FS crooked grind. Took me ages. Other than that, not too hard.

[top]
SBM Cover
Get the cover of The Skateboard Mag

Same idea as the other challenges, just follow your map and complete all 11 of these for the trophy.

[top]
Thrasher Cover
Get the cover of Thrasher

Once you discover 3 pools, this will be the same idea as the SBM Cover trophy, except there will be 17 of these.

[top]
Meet Slappy
Meet Slappy

This is like one of the first trophies you will get in the game. You can't miss it.

[top]
How you like them apples?
Acquire all phone numbers for the pros

This trophy takes a long time because you get it once you complete every Pro Challenge. I know what you're about to say, "I'm stuck at "can you spell girl" challenge, its glitched, I swear!", well, i thought the same thing until I found out the easiest way to beat it in the world. Watch this video from CannedPasta. YouTube - EA's Skate 2: How To Beat Can You Spell Girl

[top]
Anyone Else?
Beat all of the pros at Throwdown challenges

In order to unlock Throwdown challenges, you will have to complete every Pro Challenge. You will have to beat every pro at least once in a game of S.K.A.T.E. in the "Throwdown" feature in your phone. Any beaten pro will have a lighting bolt beside their names. I have figured out how to outsmart the A.I. Here is a list of tricks they simply CANNOT do.

-Triple kickflip
-Quad kickflip
-Triple heelflip
-Quad heelfip
-Nollie triple kickflip
-Nollie quad kickflip
-Nollie triple heelflip
-Nollie quad heelflip

This is a total of 8 tricks, you can add a 180, a 360, or a 540, this multiplies your tricks by 3 making a total of 24 tricks you can do! You only need 5 tricks to beat a pro.

[top]
New San Van Hero
Call Mikey 10 times

When you call Mikey, he will show up and bust the grind stoppers allowing you to skate in a no-skate zone. Easy method for this is call him, leave the no skate zone, re-enter the no skate zone and call him again. Do this 10 times and you got yourself a trophy.

[top]
Perfectionist
Complete all paths in career mode

This trophy pretty much means beat the game to 100%. This means beat absolutely EVERYTHING on your map.

[top]
Pull the Plug
Drain every pool and fountain in career mode

Once you beat your first Thrasher Challenge, you will be able to call Sammy, who will come and drain a pool making it fully skate-able. Here is a map with the pool and fountain locations

[top]
Real Estate Mogul
Purchase all property in career mode

Surprisingly, there are only 2 properties available for purchase. The first one will be available from the start of the game, and for the second one you will need to complete 4 team video challenges. Once done, you'll notice a new contest available. After winning this contest, the second property will now be yours to purchase.

[top]
Spare Parts
All Hall of Meat paths complete

In the hall of meat, there are 15 challenges for points, 15 challenges for body damage, 15 points for style, and 15 challenges for grabs. These are really fun as you have to pretty much try to break your bones in the funniest ways. It will take you a good hour and a half to complete each of these as some of them will be tough to get.

[top]
Fully Sponsored
Obtain all sponsorships

This takes quite a while to get. You will need a board, shoe, truck and wheel sponsor. You get different sponsors throughout the game.

[top]
Urban Legend Too
Own all spots in career mode

To own a spot, you have to get a score higher than the set score. Here is a helpful map I used to get this trophy:

[top]
The Architect
Upload a created spot

Pretty straight forward. Create a spot, set a score, and upload it.

[top]
The Critic
Rate 10 community videos and photos

Just check different videos and photos and rate 10 of them. Some are really funny.

[top]
Pwn some n00bs
Win an online ranked match

Win any type of online match. I got this first try

[top]
Active Skater
Successfully complete all online freeskate activities with your created skater

Wow. This takes very long. There is a total of 149 freestyle activities total. Your best bet is doing these with a friend online. To successfully complete an activity, you must fill in the checklist of things to do on that specific activity. You will see the checklist at the bottom of the screen. Good luck!

[top]
Online Legend
Achieve Legend Rank Online

This was my last trophy, and will most likely be everyone's last trophy. Most games have that one stupid online trophy that keeps them from getting the platinum. Well, this is the one for Skate 2. There is a total of 4 ranks you'll be able to achieve: Amateur (1 bronze), Pro (3 bronze + 1 silver), Icon (5 bronze + 3 silver + 1 gold) and Legend (5000xp after Icon rank).

Bronze = 100xp
Silver = 500xp
Gold = 1000xp

This takes quite some time.

[top]
Online Pro
Achieve Pro Rank Online

3 bronzes and 1 silver.

[top]
Amateur Skater
Achieve Amateur Rank Online

1 bronze.

[top]
Graphically Extreme
Add a custom graphic to your skater

All you have to do is Edit Skater, and put a plain t-shirt and press to add a graphic.

[top]
Dethrowned
Download and own a community-created spot

Pretty simple. Download a created spot and beat the set score.

[top]
Skater's Choice
Win the Skater's choice award in an online ranked match

When you play online, you have the chance to vote for the skater you think should deserve the skater's choice award. When you have the most votes, you get this trophy.

[top]
Juggling Chainsaws
Wipeout at high speed in career mode

The best time to try this is while you are trying to knock all those deathraces out. You'll for sure get this trophy without trying, and I'm not insulting you, trust me. Haha.

[top]
Skitched Up
Skitch for 1000 meters or 3000 feet in career mode

Simply hold to grab the back of a car. You do not have to do 1000 meters in one go, you just have to do a total of 1000 meters.

[top]
Make It Big!
Use Big Black's service 10 times in career mode

Hold and press and choose Big Black. Once you do that, go back to Big Black and click "Dismiss" rather than having to wait 5 minutes until you can repeat process. Do this 10 times.

[top]
Running Man
Escape a chase off board in career mode

Try your best to piss off a security guard, and once he starts chasing you, skate away and once you almost lose him, get off your board and just run until he his gone.

[top]
DIY
Spend 30 minutes moving objects in career mode

Here was my strategy. If you have a computer near your PS3 and TV, grab an object and lean your controller on your lap so the analog stick is pushed up. Now what you want to do, open up YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. and watch videos for 30 minutes!

[top]
Good Samaritan
Knock down a security guard chasing another skater in career mode

This trophy took me so long. What you want to do is look for one of those gray security guards, not yellow, and stick around him until he starts chasing another skater. Follow the 2 of them and once you think the time is right, just touch the security guard and he will fall down.

[top]
Need for Speed
Maintain maximum speed for 5 seconds in career mode

All you have to do is go to SV and skitch a muscle car. You'll get the trophy without even having to let go of the car.

[top]
Sandbag
Break at least 15 bones in a single wipeout in career mode

You can jump off of the floodway, and you are pretty much guaranteed over 15 broken bones. Haha.

[top]
Gender Bender
Change your skater's gender

Go to Edit Skater in career from the pause menu and change the gender.

[top]
Grasshopper
Perform one grass gap of at least 10 meters or 30 feet in career mode

If you purchased the Fun Track, that first gap with the red rainbow rail across it will do for this trophy.

[top]
]Stairmaster
Perform one stair gap of at least 12 meters or 36 feet in career mode

Here is a video of how and where to do this YouTube - Skate 2 - Stairmaster Achievement
Thanks to DJSpe3d

Uninsurable

[top]
Taste the Mongo
Mongo Push 5000 times in career mode
