    Achievement Guide

    ==============================================================================
    
                                Introduction
                             ------------------
    
    Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is the third installment of the MvC series, a fighting
    game that first game out in 1999 back on the Dreamcast.
    
    This is a guide to help you get some of those annoying achievements in 
    Marvel vs Capcom 3 which may be hard to understand based on the description
    given. I will break the achievements down by different catagories based on how
    you get them. All achievements are by the exact name, so you can Ctrl + F the
    one you want to find (except I didn't add the 'arcade/xbox live only' as I 
    specify where you can get it based on the section.
    ==============================================================================
    
                                Arcade Only
                            ------------------
    
    "I buy the issues" 10G
    "View one ending in Arcade Mode"
    
    This one is pretty basic and easy to understand. Just beat the arcade mode on
    any difficulty with as many continues as you need.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Saving My Quarters" 20G
    "Beat Arcade mode without using any continues"
    
    Again you can do this on any difficulty and you can set the damage higher or
    lower if you want to make it go quicker and/or if you're having troubles
    against the last boss.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Herculean Task" 30G
    "Beat Arcade mode on the hardest difficulty"
    
    This one can be kinda tricky if you're still learning the game, but you can
    lower the damage if you want, and you are allowed to use as many continues
    as you want.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Waiting for the Trade" 50G
    "View all the endings in Arcade mode"
    
    This one is a time consuming one as you have to beat the Arcade mode with
    everyone, and you only get the ending for the char that lands the final blow
    to the boss, so you have to beat it atleast 36 times. This includes the
    unlockable chars, but does not include the DLC chars that are going to come
    out soon.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Comic Collector" 50G
    "Unlock all items in the Gallery"
    
    You have to get 100% in your Gallery to get this one. To do that you have to
    view all the endings with each char, and play on every stage. The part that
    I missed at first is you have to lose to the final boss and not continue to
    view his ending and thus getting it in the Gallery. Something tells me this
    should be worth slightly more than 50G, but meh.
    ..............................................................................
    
                                Arcade or Xbox Live
                            --------------------------
    
    "Average Joe" 10G
    "Land a Viewtiful Combo"
    
    A Viewtiful Combo is a 31+ hit combo. A really easy way to get this one is to
    use a char that has a multi hit super and just pull it off on a low difficulty
    in arcade mode. Deadpool is a really good choice for this as his
    down->downfoward->forward + attack + attack (QCF+any two attack buttons that
    isnt the launcher "S" default is right trigger on the xbox controller) will do
    his gun super which hits for 40ish.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Brusin' Bruce" 20G
    "Land an Incredible Combo"
    
    An Incredible Combo is a 61+ hit combo. Now getting this one could be slighty
    tricky but again the easiest way is to have two chars that have multi hitting
    supers and chain them together. This time i would use Deadpool and have Dante
    as your second. Use the same gun super with Deadpool in arcade, and when the
    hit counter hits about 40, do the same command you did for it (QCF + two
    attacks) as long as you have atleast 2 bars when you start, Dante should
    replace Deadpool and do his gun super netting you easily over 60.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Charles in Charge" 30G
    "Land an Uncanny Combo"
    
    The Uncanny Combo is the 91+ hit combo. For this one, you will need 3 bars of
    super, and the trio I used was Deadpool, Dante, and Ryu. Set Dante up for his
    Crystal assist, and Ryu for his Haduken. Now when you have all 3 bars, you'll
    want to do the Crossover Combination, which is done by either pressing and
    holding both assist buttons down, or default on the xbox controller just
    pressing the LT. You can set the arcade mode on the easiest setting, and
    lowest possible damage so you can build up your meter first without risking
    them dying too early. You should get about a 93-95 hit combo from this.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Need a Healing Factor" 10G
    "Win a match without blocking"
    
    Pretty easy to understand; just win a match without blocking a single attack.
    Again and again you can play on the lowest difficulty and set the damage as
    high or low as you want to make it easier on yourself.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Steel Battalion" 20G
    "Block 100 times"
    
    You should be getting this one really early in the game, but I'll still put it
    here just in case. Just block a total of 100 times, this doesn't have to be in
    a single match, as the counter carries over.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Wreak "Havok"" 10G
    "Use X-Factor in a match"
    
    Another one of those easy ones as long as you know how to use X-Factor.
    Simply just press all 4 attack buttons at the same time (L + M + H + S) and
    this achievement is all yours.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "A Hero Stands Alone" 10G
    "Win a match without calling your partners or switching out"
    
    If this one is difficult, you can just lower the difficulty of arcade and get
    it that way. Just make sure you don't use any assists or die, as dying counts
    as switching to a partner.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Excelsior!" 10G
    "Perform 10 Team Aerial Combos"
    
    To pull off a team aerial combo, you have to have atleast one other partner
    still alive, then you have to launch the enemy into the air with "S" (default
    on the xbox controller is the A button) then you can hit "S" again along with
    any direction, and your partner should come out and switch with you; while
    carrying a combo and giving you a Team Aerial Combo. Just do this 10 times.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Turn The Tables" 10G
    "Land a Team Aerial Counter in a match"
    
    This one is quite simple. All you have to do is counter a team aerial done by
    your opponent. The way you counter it is by pressing forward + "S" (the A
    button by default on the xbox controller.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Be Gone!" 10G
    "Perform 10 Snap Backs"
    
    To do a snap back you have to have atleast 1 bar of super, and your enemy
    needs to have atleast 2 chars still alive. You then just press
    forward + assist button (default on xbox is LB and RB) and it should switch
    their current char with one of their partners. Just need to do this 10 times
    and the achievement is yours.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Ultimate Nullifier" 10G
    "Perform 30 Successful Advancing Guards"
    
    To pull off an Advancing Guard you have to tap two attack buttons when an
    enemy attack connects with your block, and it should push them back and give
    you an Advancing Guard. Just need to do this 30 times.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "One Step Ahead" 30G
    "Land 50 First Attacks in a match"
    
    Just make sure you get the first hit in 50 different matches. This one is
    simple and you will eventually just get it as you play the game more.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Back at 'Cha!" 10G
    "Perform 10 successful Crossover Counters"
    
    You will need a partner still alive, and atleast 1 bar of the gauge to pull
    this off. To perform a Crossover Counter, you need to block an enemy attack
    and the moment they connect with your block, you press forward + assist
    (once again default on xbox controller is LB or RB depending on which partner
    you want) and your partner should come out and use their assist, and you will
    switch to them. Do this 10 times for the achievement.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Big Bang Theory" 30G
    "Perform 30 Hyper Combo Finishes"
    
    The Hyper Combo Finish is where you kill your opponents last char with a
    super, it can be any super so its not too difficult to do online or playing
    arcade mode. 30 times and you're done.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Galactic Smasher" 40G
    "Perform 30 Crossover Finishes"
    
    To perform the Crossover Finish, you need atleast one partner alive, and have
    atleast 2 bars of your gauge. Then you need to kill your opponents last char
    with a group special which can be done by pressing both the assist buttons
    (LB + RB by default or tapping the LT). I'm not fully sure if finish a match
    with a Crossover Finish counts as a Hyper Combo Finish towards the achievement
    so you might want to go for this one first to save you time.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Mega Buster" 20G
    "Use 1,000 Hyper Combo Gague bars"
    
    Simple. Just keep using your bars and you should eventually get this 
    achievement.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Weapon X" 15G
    "Make a team composed of Weapon-X test subjects, and win a match"
    
    The following set of achievments are the whole reason I wanted to make this
    guide, because not everyone knows which chars are needed for some of them.
    For this one you just need to make a team with Wolverine, Deadpool, and X-23
    and win a match.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Female Flyers" 15G
    "Make a team composed of women who can fly, and win a match"
    
    For this team you will need Storm, Pheonix, and Morrigan and simply win a
    match.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Darkstalkers" 15G
    "Make a team composed of those who dwell in the darkness, and win a match"
    
    Make a team with Felicia, Hsien-Ko, and Morrigan and win a match. Easy enough.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Badds to the Bone" 15G
    "Make a team of three who have altered their bodies, and win a match"
    
    The team you will want this time is M.O.D.O.K, Spencer, and Ironman and
    then win a match.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Avengers Assemble!" 15G
    "Make a team composed of the Big 3 and win a match"
    
    The big 3 would be Captain America, Thor, and Ironman. Win a match and profit.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
                                Xbox Live Only
                             -------------------
    
    "Brave New World" 10G
    "Participate in any mode on Xbox Live"
    
    Simple, just play on a match on any mode on xbox live.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Copy This!" 20G
    "Put an end to this game of spider and fly in a Xbox LIVE match."
    
    This one took me and a friend forever to figure out. Just be either Spiderman
    or Taskmaster, and play against the opposite. Doesn't mater if you win or lose
    the match. You can play on any mode in xbox live, so you can do it with a
    friend if you want to. Both of you will get the achievement.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Whose Side Are You On?" 20G
    "Bring about an end to the Civil War in a Xbox LIVE Match."
    
    For this one you want to be either Captain America, or Ironman and play
    against the opposite. Once again, this can be done on any mode on Live, so
    you can do it with a friend. And still both of you will get the achievement
    despite who wins or loses.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Raccoon City Incident" 20G
    "Settle things between former S.T.A.R.S. members in a Xbox LIVE Match."
    
    Either be Chris or Wesker, and play against the opposite. Again winning or
    losing doesn't matter, and it can be done on any mode on Live. Still doesn't
    matter who wins or loses.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Fate of Two Worlds" 20G
    "Make a match on Xbox LIVE between the marquee characters for this game a
    reality."
    
    Wolverine or Ryu, and play against the one you are not. Can be done on any
    mode on Live, and both of you will still get the achievement no matter who
    wins.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Fate of the Satsui no Hadou" 20G
    "Decide who is the true master of the fist in a Xbox Live match."
    
    I have no clue what the Satsui no Hadou is, but what I do know is you will
    want to either be Ryu or Akuma for this one, and play against the opposite.
    You will have to unlock Akuma first if you want to get it using him. Once
    again it can be done on any mode on Live, and both players will get the
    achievement.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Duty and Deus Ex Machina" 20G
    "Make a match on Xbox Live between a national hero and a killing machine a
    reality"
    
    This one you will have to either be Captain America or M.O.D.O.K. and play
    against the other. Like the rest of the achievements like this one, you can
    play on any mode on Xbox Live, and it doesn't matter who wins or loses, as
    both players will recieve it.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Who will Answer the Call?" 10G
    "Participate in an 8 player Lobby on Xbox LIVE"
    
    You can either get 7 other people and all just create a lobby and start
    inviting people, or you can search for a lobby, and specify that you want it
    to allow 8 people. Just enter the lobby and its yours.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Full Roster" 40G
    "Battle against all characters in a Xbox Live match"
    
    You should get this as you play more and more on Xbox Live, but if you want
    it quicker you can just join a friend and keep picking different characters
    until you've played against all of them, as it doesn't matter what mode on
    live you do this on.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Playtime Is Over" 10G
    "Surpass the rank of Amateur"
    
    This one HAS to be a ranked match, and the moment you become an Amateur, you
    will get this achievement. I'm pretty sure win or lose your first match and
    you will automatically become an Amateur. It is the second rank.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Leading the Charge" 30G
    "Surpass the rank of Fighter."
    
    Another one of the ranked match achievents. For this one you have to become
    the 'Fighter' rank, which is the 4th rank I believe. Just keep at the ranked
    matches and you'll get this one eventually.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Combat Specialist" 30G
    "In Ranked match, surpass the "1st" class rank, or fight someone who has"
    
    I feel like this is also one of those achievements that should be worth a tad
    more but hey. For this one you have to play against or become the "1st" rank
    in ranked matches. You do not have to beat the person, just play against them.
    I believe it is the 13th rank.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "School for the Gifted" 15G
    "Get a 5 game win streak in Ranked Match."
    
    Ugh. This one is much harder it seems than the rest, but atleast its a simple
    achievement to understand. Just win 5 ranked match games in a row and you got
    it. Good luck.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
                                Mission Mode
                             ------------------
    
    "Welcome to Avengers Academy!" 10G
    "Clear 80 missions in Mission mode."
    
    Mission mode is a mode that helps you learn links and combos with specific
    characters. Each char has 10 missions for you to do. Just clear 80 total and
    you got this one.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Passed the Field Test" 20G
    "Clear 160 missions in Mission Mode"
    
    Same as the previous achievement, but you need 160 done for it.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "A New Avenger" 40G
    "Clear 320 missions in Mission mode."
    
    Here it is, the hardest one in my opinion. Clearing 320 of 360 missions will
    get you this one. What this means though is that you can get this achievement
    without doing the 10th mission for each char, but it still is incredibly
    difficult to do.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
                                Any Mode!
                             ---------------
    
    "World Warrior" 10G
    "Earn 5,000 Player Points (PP)"
    
    You get PP for doing anything in this game, from playing arcade, to doing
    missions, to fighting in training mode, and playing on xbox live, ranked or
    vs player. Its easiest to play arcade, as you get about 2k per run through it
    even on the easiest difficulty.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Champion Edition Hero" 30G
    "Earn 30,000 Player Points (PP)"
    
    Same as before, you will easily get this while trying to unlock everyones 
    endings or just by playing online. Earn 30k and get 30G.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Super Turbo Brawler" 50G
    "Earn 100,000 Player Points (PP)."
    
    Same as the last two, you just need 100k this time.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
    "Passport to Beatdown Country" 10G
    "Fight in all of the stages"
    
    While I didn't really have a spot for this, you will be getting this rather
    early, as it can be done on any mode you wish. Just play on every stage.
    
    ..............................................................................
    
                                Final Achievement?!
                            -------------------------
    
    "Master of Fate" 50G
    "Unlock all achievements"
    
    I really dislike achievements like this that are worth more than 0G but 
    whatever. Get every other achievement in the game and you'll get this one as
    well.
