The Achievements ------------------- There are currently 49 achievements worth 1000 gamerscore. I would consider this one of the easiest Music games to fully complete. Nothing is that challenging in it. It is still a fun game, but not for someone looking for challenge. The reason it isn't that challenging is because it is more for the whole family and you can tell Activision/Neversoft are trying to get new people involved in the game. A. Welcome to Band Hero - Complete the Tutorials 5G - You must complete all tutorials. Gameplay, Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Drums and Band. B. Rise to Fame - Complete 25% of the gigs in Career 25G - If you are playing straight through each and every song. YOu will get this by the end of the second venue. C. Nation's Star - Complete 50% of the gigs in Career 20G - If you are playing straight through each and every song. YOu will get this by the end of the fifth venue. D. World Known - Complete 75% of the gigs in Career 30G - If you are playing straight through each and every song. YOu will get this by the end of the seventh venue. E. Glimmer - Earn 111 Stars in Career 10G - See Shine F. Sparkle - Earn 333 Stars in Career 20G - See Shine G. Shine - Earn 555 Stars in Career 30G - Probably the quickest way to get this is to play all songs first on beginner vocals. Just put the mic in front of a fan and let each song play. This will net you 6 stars on each song. H. Platinum Blonde - Earn Platinum level on a Career Challenge 10G - You can read the challenge for a song when you click on the song. There are Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Drums and Band challenges. If you are playing online in someone else's career and they do a challenge, it counts for your career even if you aren't playing the same instrument. The first few challenges are probably the easiest. Note that most challenges must be don't on expert, but not all. You can play around a bit and find an easy one to get Platinum or even diamond on. I. Iced Out - Earn Diamond level on a Career Challenge 10G - Same as Platinum Blonde except you need Diamond. There are around 75 challenges in the game. J. Road Most Traveled - Unlock every venue 20G - Play the majority of the gigs in each venue and this will unlock after playing a few in the last venue. K. The Long Road Ahead - Complete Career on any difficulty with any instrument 30G - You will unlock this at the same time as Road most Traveled. Just play the majority of the gigs in each venue and you will get this. L. M.C. - Host an online Career game and play a song 5G - When you click on career from the main menu. You can either invite friends or search for players. Once at least one person joins. Just play through a song and this will unlock. M. Face to Face - Complete 25 online Pro Face-Off matches, win or lose 15G - Just go to competitive play and search in Pro Face Off. Just complete 25 games, win or lose. You will probably find more games on guitar than any other instruement. N. Till Death Do Us Part - Play an online Do or Die game 5G - Go on Xbox Live and search in Rockfest. Do or Die is a random game that will come up. If you do this in a private match, you can just select a Do or Die game. O. Nice to Meet You - Complete the gigs and unlock all of the celebrity characters 20G - You must play the following, NOte there are 3 Taylor Swift songs you only have to play 1. I listed Love Story below because it is the first one you come across in the career. Love Story - Taylor Swift Don't Speak - No Doubt Just A Girl - No Doubt She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5 P. A New Challenge Awaits - Complete 50 of the Career Challenges at Platinum or Diamond 30G - You must complete 50 different challenges at at least Platinum level which makes this achievement really easy. MOst of the challenges have to be done on expert, so keep that in mind. You can sometimes find people online playing other instruments if you search in career. You can always see if they will help with challenges you can't do. Q. Testing the Waters - Play through every Band Hero song once 20G - There are a total of 65 songs.

That is your Avatar, complete a song as them and this will unlock. S. In the Moment - Successfully complete a Band Moment 5G - A band moment is when you have more than one person playing. You will see some notes that are on fire. Make sure everyone playing hits all the notes and the track will shine orange. This is a band moment. T. Star Light, Star Bright - Score over 10,000 points while in a single Star Power deployment 10G - This can be gotten very easily on any song with a lot of double note chords. Just save your star power until one of these parts and then activate it. U. A Cool Mill - Score over 1,000,000 points as a band in any single song in Career or Quickplay 10G - You can easily get this on most songs with 4 people playing on any difficulty except beginner. V.
