[top]Tips & Strategies

There aren't many tips I can give other then the following:

Know your special tricks well, they can be edited while selecting a character by heading into the Skate Shop.

When you see BIG DROP appear on your screen hold to land the trick without bailing.

Keep on top of your stat points. Try to upgrade them using your money before worrying about special tricks and whatnot.

Don't get irritated when you mess up your line, just try again, you're bound to get it eventually.

Have fun, we have all been anticipating another Tony Hawk's game that doesn't involve a "real" skateboard where a dog can hold one of the highest scores

This. Is. SKATEBOARDING!
Win a match online

This trophy is awarded the first time you win any event online.

To play online, from the main menu head into "Plastation Network" and either select Join Match, Quick Match, or Create Match. It is a bit easier to click Create Match because some people start up a lobby and walk away from the game so they never start a session. If you Create Match then you are the host and you just have to wait until someone else joins your lobby or you can make a private match to boost this trophy.

There are different modes in which you can play in; "Trick Attack" where you must outscore your opponent, "Graffiti" where you must combo on objects to turn them your color and have more things colored at the end of the session (The Bigger the combo the harder it will be for your opponent to take over those pieces from you), "Big Head Elimination" where you have to complete tricks to reduce the size of your head as it gets bigger and bigger but be sure to land the tricks before you get too close to 100% or your head will explode and you will lose.

It is easiest to win at Big Head Elimination because this is a new mode and not many people are completely familiar with it, also people tend to forget to check the % of how big their head has gotten and forget to land the trick before their head pops. People also tend to start messing up closer to the end of the session as they tend to mess up tricks and their head doesn't stop growing once they are recovering. I recommend using this mode in the level "Mall" or "Downhill Jam". Those two levels seem to give people the most problems as far as keeping their head size lower and you can create giant runs in those two levels.

Once you win a match in any game for the first time you will be awarded this trophy. Yes there are "Private Matches" so yes you can boost this if need be.

Old School
Score 200,000 points without performing a single Manual in one run in Warehouse

This trophy is fairly easy but you probably won't get it at the beginning. This is more of a skill based trophy then a trophy that can be described. The tips I can give for this one is to accomplish it in Single Session or Career and not in Projectives because Projectives will only give you half the time and due to manuals being out of the question it will make it harder to string together a big enough combo to get this score in one shot. Take advantage of the gaps for going over the halfpipe and going through the secret room. Also grind the quaterpipes and try to string them together the best you can without a manual.

Also make sure you have a few special tricks that you know the commands for to be able to take advantage of a bigger score in a trick. Even if your style in the game is a more street-esqe don't be bashful about using the halfpipe itself since the value of tricks diminishes the more times you do them in a run and grabs can really rack up points with spins, a flip trick before the grab and a Perfect landing.

Reach 200,000 points and don't use a single manual and you will get this trophy. It may take a few tries but it isn't nearly as hard as you may imagine it to be.

Bringing home the bacon
Unlock Officer Dick

Officer Dick is unlocked in this game by completing every goal in every level using a single character. There are rumors that you can't unlock Officer Dick using Tony Hawk and rumors that you don't need to complete every goal on every map, only Marseille but I did all goals in each level before moving on to the next and used Rodney Mullen the god of skateboarding first so as far as I know those are just rumors.

Some users have stepped forward and claimed they unlocked Officer Dick using Tony Hawk while others are claiming they used him and didn't unlock him and had to run through Career again so it seems to work for some people and curse others so use Tony at your own risk. As far as only needing to 100% Marseille for this trophy numerous people have come forward confirming this but you will still need to have completed every challenge in career to unlock the projectives so I will leave the list of goals here.

Simply go through each of the levels and collect all the cash and complete all of the goals to obtain this character and this trophy.

If you are having trouble finding any of the locations for certain goals that require you to collect stuff or trick at a certain place on the map you can hit start and use to show you all goal locations for that map. It will also show you any money icons on the map.

Here is a list of all the goals you will need to complete to unlock this trophy

Manual Master
Perform 15 manuals in one combo in School II with Rodney Mullen

For this trophy I recommend going into career and earning yourself enough money by collecting cash icons throughout the levels and completing objectives until you can get Rodney's Manual Balance stats all the way maxed out.

Once his stats for Manual Balance have been maxed out head to the School II level in either Career, Projective, or Free Skate modes. It would be most wise to attain this trophy during free skate so you don't have to keep retrying if you don't succeed first try.

If I need to explain to you how to do a manual in this game I think you should exit this page and stop playing this game but if you really DON'T know and would rather keep playing then a manual is performed by pressing either up then down while in the air or down then up while in the air for a nose manual.

You can do this one of two ways, you can either do it throughout a combo or you can do it for this trophy specifically and be cheap about it. The normal way I can't explain but tell you that you will need some real skill to pull off. The cheap way however requires less skill but you will still need some skills balancing Rodney. The cheap way is to keep pressing and then down up before you land and as soon as you land proceed to hit again. You can hop into manual very quickly a total of 7 or 8 times before you need to worry about rebalancing your skater to do a few more hops.

Either way in the course of the combo you will need to do 15 manuals AND land the trick. It doesn't matter if you use nose manuals or regular manuals, both will count towards this trophy. You also do NOT need to do any sort of trick higher then a basic ollie for this trophy to count and I recommend using nothing but ollies since they don't count towards the score multiplier so when you would get a x15 combo you would know that you had completed 15 manuals and can now land your trick.

Gap Skiing
Complete the 100 Ski Jump gap in Downhill Jam

For this trophy you are going to want to build up your speed, ollie, and air time stats. Once they are higher then 3/4 head to Downhill Jam.

Head down the slope towards the halfpipe. Once you get to the halfpipe, head straight down until you clear the halfpipe then bear right around the giant rock in the middle and immediately afterwards head back into the middle of the lane. There will be a launch here that will launch you up to the top of the rock with the big billboard sign on it. Once on top of the rock ride it back down to an underground launch pad and launch out of it. The idea here is to get the 25 feet, 50 feet, 75 feet, and 100 feet gaps and land the trick.

To land the trick is simple, even with full landing stats you will receive a BIG DROP warning on the screen. Simply hold to compensate for the landing and land without bailing. If you were going fast enough and landed properly you should get this trophy without much effort at all.

Ain't 'fraid of no ghosts
Collect all pellets in one combo in Hawkman in the Hangar

Hawkman requires you to collect pellets by performing certain things. You have to Manual through the green pellets, grind through the yellow pellets, ollie through the red pellets, and wallride through the blue pellets.

In the Hanger level there are no wallride pellets but you need to manual up to the pipe, grind across the top, manual to the quarterpipe and air to the second set of rails and grind them and air off and grind the quarter pipes below, then hop off and manual on the ground towards another quarterpipe and launch up to a high railing and grind it, drop down and grind the other quarterpipes and break through the glass then air off and manual into the halfpipe in one fluid combo in order to obtain this trophy. So yes, in short make sure your manual and rail balance stats are maxed out.

Here is a video for visual referance:

Some users are reporting being able to get this trophy through a glitch where they use two combos, here are there quotes:

After the last red pellet I landed the manual but ran out of balance and bailed. I got up and got the last few green pellets in a new manual and still got the trophy, effectively meaning you can get this in 2 combo's (not sure if location matters, but as I said I bailed on the last set of greens).

Hope this helps people who are having difficulties.

The Best. Around
Get 500,000 points in one run in Venice Beach

For this trophy you are going to need to obtain 500,000 points in one run of Venice Beach. You can do this in any mode you feel fit but I suggest Single Session.

For that amount of points in two minutes you might want to make sure you have a feel for your special tricks and feel comfortable grinding and manualing. The best way I found to accomplish this was to head directly to your left from the start into the mini-bowl. rack up a few points using grabs and obtain your special meter. Now use the the walls and fences that were right behind you in the beginning of the level to go from one side of the map to the other and use the quarterpipe on the other end to get a nice grab in to up the score before the multiplier kicks in. Now grind your way back and go to the bowl and repeat the process. If you did enough tricks along the way you should have obtained the necessary points by going from one end to the other as little as 1 or two times.

This trophy will take some real skill and a bit of patience to complete but isn't that bad of a score to reach.

I don't want no 2 minute man
Hold a combo for 30 seconds after the time is up in Marseille

Depending on your skill at keeping a combo going for a lengthy amount of time will prove whether this is an easy or tough trophy to obtain.

You can try the tougher method and find yourself a lengthy line to combo after the timer runs out or you can do the easier but still tough method of grinding the outside of the three small bowls and manual until you can't hold it any longer.

If you are choosing to use your own line the I still recommend waiting to start the line once the timer reaches 0:01 or 0:02 so the combo doesn't need to be a minute length at the end of the combo.

Here is a video showing the line used for the "easier method":

Race to the finish lines
Reach the end of the Mall 3 times in a single Big Head Survival run

This is more of a skill based trophy and a knowledge of how Big Head Runs work. In Big Head Runs you will have to complete tricks to keep the % in the top right corner from hitting 100%. The better the combo done the closer to 0 the % will reach after the trick.

I suggest building up the stats of your character almost to the max before attempting this trophy. Once you feel comfortable in the Mall level and with how Big Head Run mode works head into Big Head Run mode from the single player options. The objective here is to make it all the way to the car park in the very bottom of the mall three times. Use the malls planters and randomly placed rails and light fixtures to string together some good combos to keep your head percentage low.

Before reaching the end of the run on the first two runs down the mall I highly recommend trying to reset the counter to 0% before it brings you back to the top since there is a moment of lag time in controlling the character while the percentage doesn't stop rising.

Reach the parking lot at the bottom for a third time in one run and you will receive this trophy.

Completist
Complete all Projectives with one character

To enter into Projectives you must first complete all challenges in Career with any character and you will only be able to access Projectives for that character AND have all the levels unlocked already. The Projectives in this game are much more difficult then the original career objectives you completed earlier.

Once you clear all of the Projectives you will be awarded this trophy and a new character: Ollie The Magic Bum

To get to Projectives, head into Single Player and select your character and press left on the D-Pad. You will see the "Game Mode" at the top of the screen change to "Projectives". Here is a list of the Projectives for each of the levels:
