    Hi, I'm Lestor Wong. I post on GameFAQ.com/ GameSpot.com by the

    This guide will explain how you can unlock all 1,000 points in FIFA 
    Street 3, EA Sports's latest street offering. 
    The achievements in this game can be categorized as follow:
    - Match Type Achievements
    - Gamebreaker-Related Achievements
    - Challenge-Related Achievements
    - Head-to-Head Achievements
    - Online Multiplayer Achievements
    - Miscellaneous Achievements
    Note that all achievement unlocks after you end a game type and save. 
    Here are just some ideas on playing this game.
    - A "Lead FIFA Street 3 Profile" basically means playing the game with 
    your gamertag.
    - If you're having problems winning, you can switch the difficulty to 
    Easy at anytime using the Game Settings option. The default level 
    (Medium) is quite easy to get by for most of the games though. 
    You won't be able to change the difficulty level in the FIFA Street 
    Challenge Mode, however. 
    - Scoring goals are not as straightforward as just getting close to 
    goal and taking shots. Try doing tricks (Y to juggle, right analog 
    stick for a variety of tricks, and RT when near a wall to do a Prince-
    of-Persia with the ball) often to build up Gamebreakers.
    - Gamebreakers are killers in this game. It doesn't guarantee a goal 
    though, so try to have a clear sight of goal (winning the ball back 
    in your own half and passing it quickly to the front player usually 
    sets this up nicely) and shoot lightly when you're on Gamebreaker to 
    ensure success.
    - You can extend Gamebreakers by performing tricks and then scoring a 
    goal. If you score a goal when your opponent is on Gamebreaker, you 
    reduce their Gamebreaker to zero.
    - Tackling is a bit of a hit-and-miss. Try pressing RT and going in 
    with X (heavy tackle) while you're near an opponent to win the ball 
    back. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but you'll get by.
    - There are various game modes so winning criteria are different in 
    different games. I'll explain them in the sections below.
    - Turn autosave off just in case you screw up something.
    This is self-explanatory. Play every available game type once and you 
    unlock the below. You can unlock them by playing games with the "Play 
    Now" option on the start menu, and choosing each type of game mode. 
    You don't even need to win them to get the achievements.
    SCORE MATCH (15) 
    Description: Complete a Score match with the lead FIFA Street 3 
    A score match is straightforward. Complete a game with "Score" as the 
    criteria to unlock this. This game type is basically a "first to X 
    score" match. The minimum number of goals you can set (for quick 
    completion) is THREE.
    Playing a team with good finishers help a lot in doing this easily. 
    Do a Brazil vs New Zealand on easy (use Brazil, of course) if you're 
    having problems.
    Description: Complete a Score Difference match with the lead FIFA 
    Street 3 profile
    A score difference match requires you to complete a game that with a 
    "win by X goals" objective. The minimum score difference that you can 
    select is TWO.
    TIMED MATCH (15)
    Description: Complete a Timed match with the lead FIFA Street 3 
    A timed match basically means a game with a time limit. The minimum 
    time you can set for this is FOUR MINUTES.
    If the game ends in a tie after the time limit, the golden goal rule 
    will be applied. Basically, "next goal wins".
    Description: Complete a Headers and Volleys match with the lead FIFA 
    Street 3 profile
    This is a different kind of score match. The first team to score five 
    header or volley goals wins. The easiest way to volley the ball is to 
    juggle (Y) and then unleash a shot (B) before the ball touches the 
    You can also consider going down the flanks and crossing the ball in. 
    The target will either volley, perform a bicylce kick, or head the 
    ball. Hopefully these will go in. 
    If you intend to do the crossing method, play with a team with at 
    least one good passer and one good finisher if you find it difficult to 
    score in this match. The passer should always be the provider from the 
    flank. Because players interchange position freely in this game, your 
    good finisher may not be there to meet your crosses all the time, but 
    it gives you a better chance of scoring. 
    The juggle-volley method, however, is still the way to go if you want 
    to get this over and done with quickly.
    Description: Complete a Gamebreaker Goal match with the lead FIFA 
    Street 3 profile
    The first team to score a certain number of Gamebreaker goals win in  
    this match type. The minimum number of goals you can set for this is 
    Try to use a team with a recognized trickster (eg. Ronaldinho for 
    Brazil) and build the tricks up to quickly fill your Gamebreaker bar. 
    Note that while you build skills, the bar shows yellow. If you lose 
    possession and don't continue to do the skills, the bar will decrease. 
    To ensure that you "earn" progress for the bar, you'll need to turn 
    the yellow bar into a blue bar by sending a shot in at goal. An easy 
    way to do this is to simply perform tricks in your own half until you 
    hit full bar, and then unleash a shot towards goal to turn the bar 
    into a Gamebreaker. 
    Try to score as many goals as possible when you're on Gamebreaker too 
    to do this fast. Sometimes, opposing goalkeepers will stupidly throw 
    the ball at the feet of your players after conceding a goal, so take 
    the opportunity to rack up the scores.
    Also, just in case you don't know how to do so, you need to press RB 
    when the Gamebreaker is confirmed to activate it. You can do this at 
    anytime as long as the bar is full and the Gamebreaker is already 
    confirmed (blue shining bar).
    Description: Complete a Five-A-Side match with the lead FIFA Street 3 
    Choose "Five-A-Side" on the game type to play this match. I believe 
    that in a five-a-side game, you can't use Gamebreakers (correct me if 
    I'm wrong), so just playing normally. 
    Note that you can also unlock the above achievements by playing the 
    FIFA Street Challenge Mode of the game, which consists of all the above 
    variety on a competition level.
    Gamebreakers play a huge part in FIFA Street 3, and it shows when a 
    whopping 225 points are allocated to this feature. And, you can unlock 
    them while playing any match type, in conjunction with those match 
    type achievements above. Some of these can be done together in one 
    single game too.
    Description: With the lead FS3 profile, fill your Gamebreaker bar in 
    one possession in any mode except Practice
    Not as difficult as it sounds, really. Use a trickster and start 
    earning the points in your own half with a combination of juggles and 
    skills. If you're in danger of being tackled, pass the ball to an 
    unmarked player and continue until your bar is full. Shoot towards 
    goal to confirm the Gamebreaker, and you're done.
    Description: Score a Gamebreaker goal with the lead FIFA Street 3 
    profile in any game mode except Practice
    Score a goal while on gamebreaker, how hard is that? As mentioned in 
    the Tips and Tricks section, try to line up a clear sight of goal 
    (winning the ball back in your own half and passing it quickly to the 
    front player usually sets this up easily) before shooting. Don't shoot 
    hard since the ball will fly over the bar. A simple tap on the B 
    button would suffice. 
    Description: Score 3 Gamebreakers with the lead FS3 profile on the 
    same Gamebreaker in any mode except Practice
    This one is slightly trickier, but you can continue from scoring one 
    Gamebreaker to get this one really easily if the opposing goalkeeper 
    does one of those crazy throw-the-ball-back-to-you-after-conceding 
    antics. All goalkeepers in the game, regardless of how good they're in 
    real life, will do this crap every now and then. I managed to score four 
    in a row while on Gamebreaker because of the stupid goalkeeper that I'm 
    playing against... and he was not from New Zealand/ China PR/ Scotland! 
    Of course, if the goalkeeper doesn't throw the ball back to you after 
    conceding while you're on Gamebreaker, you'll actually have to win the 
    ball back and try to shoot. This is a little tougher since tackling is 
    a hit-and-miss affair in this game in my opinion. If you can't do this, 
    I've an alternative plan for you later...
    Description: Score a golden goal with the lead FIFA Street 3 profile 
    in a timed match while on Gamebreaker
    Play a timed game to four minutes, and then start building up the Game-
    breaker bar ASAP. Once you confirm the Gamebreaker, start passing the 
    ball from around in your own half until time is up. This is when "next 
    goal wins" kicks in. Go on to activate Gamebreaker once you're clear 
    on goal and score. You win 1-0 with a golden goal.
    Description: Score with the lead FIFA Street 3 profile while your 
    opponent is on Gamebreaker
    Let your opponent run rings round you so that they build up their own 
    Gamebreaker. Once they activate it, try your best to win the ball back. 
    Even if you concede a goal, you should quickly roll the bar out to 
    start a counter-attack and do whatever you can to score. You don't 
    need to score a Gamebreaker to unlock this achievement here. Any goal 
    will do, so just do a juggle-juggle-juggle and shoot on sight. As long 
    as you score a goal when the opponent's Gamebreaker bar (in red) is 
    still on, you'll unlock this after the match.
    Now, to the "alternative method" of unlocking the above. If you really 
    can't do them legit, you can unlock the whole lot by putting in a 
    second controller and controlling both teams. Just... try not to do 
    this too often, ok. :P
    You can play FIFA Street Challenge Mode in this game with any team 
    that you've unlocked, but you cannot swap players between teams. The 
    teams in the game is formed based on various features of real life 
    players. For example, a "Youth Star" team will have players like Nani 
    and Adu, while a "Stocky" team will have meat pies like Mark Viduka 
    and Paul Robinson. There are quite a number of teams that you can 
    unlock while playing this mode, but the only three teams that matter 
    in terms of achievements are the Champions, the F50, and the World 
    Description: With the lead FIFA Street 3 profile, complete a match 
    with F50
    The F50 is unlocked right after you win your first challenge (Youth 
    Challenge), which consists of two games. You need to beat the Youth 
    Stars to unlock this team. The F50 consists of players like Lukas 
    Podolski from Germany and Xabi Alonso from Spain. It's easy to get 
    this team because the difficulty level for the Youth Challenge is 
    Once you unlock the team, play a game as them in the next challenge 
    (or replay the first challenge if you want) to get the achievement.
    Description: With the lead FIFA Street 3 profile, complete a match 
    with the Champions
    The Champions is unlocked after you complete the Champions Challenge, 
    which is the seventh challenge in FIFA Street Challenge. This 
    challenge does not unlock right away, so you'll have to play a lot of
    games before you can have a go at it. It's also considerable more 
    difficult to unlock this team, because the difficulty level for this 
    challenge is hard.
    Try to use a team that has a variety of players instead of a team 
    that is specialized in only certain skills. For example, you may think 
    that having a team of "Finishers" can help you win this challenge 
    easier since players in the finisher class are better at scoring. This 
    may not be the case though, because finishers are also poor at 
    defending, so you may end up having a hard just trying to win the ball 
    from the opponent. 
    In fact, to make things easier, I'd suggest using the Enforcers for 
    this challenge. I know that a team of strong defenders may not be the 
    best bet when you need to perform skills or score, but having the 
    ability to win the ball consistently is the key to winning this 
    You may also want to know that the Champions is made up of a team of 
    former World Cup Champions. Players include Rudi Voller from Germany, 
    Franco Baresi from Italy and Ronaldinho from Brazil.
    After you get the Champions, play a game as them (perhaps in the Youth 
    Challenge for a easier) to unlock the achievement.
    Description: With the lead FIFA Street 3 profile, complete a match 
    with World Stars
    The World Stars are even harder to unlock than the Champions. You need 
    to win the All Stars Challenge to get them, and the difficulty level 
    for this challenge is set at "cheeky". Well, it's basically the most 
    difficult level for the game...
    ... which means, you need a good all-rounded team to beat it. I'd go 
    with the Champions (duh!), since Franco Baresi is perhaps the best 
    ball-winner in this game. He even scored a few vital goals for me!
    Rudi Voller is useless, by the way, even with a five-star rating. :P
    UPDATE: I've good news for people who find it impossible to complete 
    the above challenges. You can still unlock them without ever playing 
    FIFA Street Challenge! To do so, go online and get someone who has 
    unlocked these teams to play a Playground Picks match with you with 
    those teams. In Playground Picks, both players choose footballers from 
    the same team. Meaning, upon completing the game (win or lose), you'll 
    unlock the above challenge-related achievements because you've 
    "completed a match with" them. You still won't unlock those teams for 
    your own use, but at least you get the achievements.
    Head-to-Head is a local multiplayer match type that pits you against 
    your (physically present) friend in a series of "best of" games. 
    Description: With the lead FS3 profile, complete the last Head to Head 
    match in a best of three of any type
    Since this involves playing with a friend, you can either ask your 
    friend to let you win, or you can just plug in a second controller 
    and control both teams for the easy points.
    To get this achievement, set the match as follow:
    - Head-to-Head
    - Score Match to Three Goals
    - Best of Three
    Since it's a best of three, you'd only need to win two games to unlock 
    it. Scoring three goals against a second controller seems like easy to 
    me, no?
    Description: With the lead FS3 profile, complete the last Gamebreaker 
    Goals match to three goals in a best of seven
    Set the match as follow:
    - Head-to-Head
    - Gamebreaker to Three Goals
    - Best of Seven
    Second controller, score five Gamebreaker goals to win a match, repeat 
    it three more times, and there you go.
    Description: With the lead FS3 profile, complete the last Headers and 
    Volleys match to seven goals in a best of five
    Set the match as follow:
    - Head-to-Head
    - Headers and Volleys to Seven Goals
    - Best of Five
    So, so easy. With no one blocking your path on the second controller, 
    do the juggle-volley method and score seven goals to win a match. Do 
    it for two more times to unlock the achievement.
    Why so many online achievements? 270 points!
    GET ONLINE (25)
    Description: Complete a ranked or unranked match with the lead FIFA 
    Street 3 profile on Xbox LIVE
    An easy 25G if you can find anyone to play a game with you. Don't 
    have to win the game to get this. Try to play a ranked match anyway 
    to build up the ranked goals count.
    HOST PICKS (25)
    Description: Win a completed match as the host of an Xbox LIVE Play-
    ground Picks match with the lead FS3 profile
    Playground Picks work like an Adidas advertisement from last year 
    (Jose +10 - youtube this, it's cool). You and your opponent pick 
    players for your own side, and then play a match. Win a game at the 
    "playground" that you host to unlock this. Easy to unlock... if you 
    can find someone to boost it with you.
    GUEST PICKS (25)
    Description: Win a completed Xbox LIVE Playground Picks match hosted 
    by another player with the lead FS3 profile
    For the same measure as Host Picks, win a game at someone else's 
    "playground" to get this achievement. So, if you're boosting and want 
    to get both, just host a game, pick the sides, and work with your 
    friend to win one and lose one. Get him/ her to host next and do the 
    Description: Score 50 goals in completed ranked matches on Xbox LIVE 
    with the lead FIFA Street 3 profile
    The 50 goals are cumulative. Countrary to my previous observation, 
    goals scored in Playground Picks do count for this achievement. I've 
    helped a couple of people with this in Playground Picks when replaying 
    this game on my current gamertag.
    Own goals don't count though, so don't even waste time doing them. 
    RANKED CHAMP (100)
    Description: Complete and win 25 ranked matches on Xbox LIVE with the 
    lead FIFA Street 3 profile
    Ranked matches are set at timed games of five minutes. You could do 
    this in a Quick Match, Custom Match, World Challenge or Playground 
    Picks. It'll do as long as it's a ranked match.
    The wins are obviously cumulative. You could try winning against 
    strangers, or boost with a friend. When boosting, do it in Playground 
    Picks because you could actually see a list of gamertags when joining 
    a match in this mode. This allows you to find your friend easier than 
    playing a normal ranked game. 
    Note also that the achievement requires "completed" matches. Meaning, 
    if someone quits on you and you're awarded a win as a result, this 
    win will not be added to your count of 25. Meaning, if you hit 25 and 
    still don't unlock it, just continue winning a few more and it should 
    Description: Complete an Xbox LIVE match against another player who 
    has Street Fever with the lead FS3 profile
    This is one of those annoying viral achievements that are becoming 
    increasingly popular over recent months. Someone from EA has this 
    achievement, and if you happen to play with him/ her, you earn the 
    achievement. You can then give it to someone else by playing with 
    others. It's a bit like having unprotected sex while being HIV 
    Many thanks to Scott Rae 91 and KickTheBoss for giving me this virus 
    on both my previous and current gamertags.
    Here are the final achievements that don't fit anywhere other than 
    Description: Take 50 shots on goal in any game mode except Practice 
    with the lead FIFA Street 3 profile
    This is a cumulative achievement. Just play a couple of games and you 
    should unlock this one. You can consciously count the number of shots 
    you attempt, but I got this while playing a Challenge Mode game 
    without even bothering. If you want to get it fast, play a timed game 
    that's 10 minutes or longer, and just rain shots at every opportunity. 
    WALLY (35)
    Description: Run on the walls 50 times in any game mode except 
    Practice with the lead FIFA Street 3 profile
    I'd suggest that you do this when attempting Golden Gamebreaker. After 
    earning the Gamebreaker, you'd be wasting time until the time limit. 
    Instead of passing the ball around, why not run on the wall in your 
    own half 50 times to earn this achievement? I did this near my own 
    goalkeeper and was never in danger of losing the ball. Pass the ball 
    to an unmarked player if the opponent somehow chases you around. Since 
    you're playing a timed game with "next goal wins", you can continue 
    running on walls even when you hit the time limit since the game won't 
    end unless someone scores a goal. 
    For good measure, try to run the walls more than 50 times in case you 
    count wrongly while being bored during the process. 
    TOURIST (10)
    Description: Score a goal in every environment in any game mode except 
    Practice with the lead FS3 profile
    There are seven environments in FIFA Street 3. They're:
    - Samba
    - Oil Rig
    - Rooftop
    - Beach
    - Riverside
    - Shipyard
    - Mediterranean
    NOTE: The DLC locations are NOT REQUIRED for this achievement. 
    Easiest way is to play seven four-minute timed matches or a win by two 
    goals difference matches (whichever is easier for you) in "Play Now", 
    and select a different environment each time you do so. 
    Description: With the lead FIFA Street 3 profile, score a hat trick 
    with CROUCH in any game mode except Practice
    Hey, Peter Crouch makes it to the cover of a footie game! And with it, 
    an achievement involving him too! Why not Ronaldinho or Gattuso (who 
    are both on the cover as well), but Crouch? We'll never know!
    On a serious note, this achievement is the one that made me buy this 
    game. Being a Liverpool fan, I'm a huge supporter of Crouch even though 
    he isn't the most elegant player out there. But I feel that he forms a 
    good partnership with Fernando Torres (like the John Toshack-Kevin 
    Keegan "big man-small man" combo), and has been unfairly treated by 
    someone called Rafa Benitez who thinks that he's a great manager but 
    isn't exactly one.
    Anyway, apologies for digressing. Back to the topic, Crouch isn't 
    a skilful player in the game, so getting him to score a hat trick 
    isn't that straightforward. If you want this fast, do a "Play Now" 
    and control England. Consider playing against New Zealand or China PR 
    to make it easier for him to score. If you need more time, consider a 
    score match to 10 goals or a timed match to 10 minutes. If you happen 
    to hit Gamebreaker, pass the ball to him to shoot. Basically, anything 
    to make him score. You can't miss him. He's the tallest man on the 
    Or, you could simply "second controller" this achievement. 
    This new section is created in May '08, after EA released a venue pack 
    (it's called the "Arena Pack" on XBL) that somehow includes additional 
    achievement points. You'd need to purchase this downloadable content 
    at 300 MS points in order to earn these achievements.
    The three new locations from this pack are:
    - East End
    - Jungle
    - Riverside PM
    There are five new achievements with this DLC. They involve playing 
    as certain teams or on certain match types on these new grounds. If 
    you've already unlocked the Predators team from the Street Challenge 
    mode, all these achievements can be completed in a little less than 
    half an hour. 
    Description: With the lead FIFA Street 3 profile, complete a Game-
    breaker Goal match in East End
    This is as straightforward as it can be. East End is one of the three 
    new locations from the DLC. Simply play a Gamebreaker match there to 
    unlock the achievement. As with all those "complete x-type match" 
    achievements in this game, you don't even need to win to get the 
    points. To speed things up, set the game to three goals (the minimum) 
    and get it over and done with.
    Description: With the lead FS3 profile, complete the last Score match 
    to 10 goals in a best of 7 in Jungle
    Set the match as follow:
    - Head-to-Head
    - Score match to 10 Goals
    - Best of Seven
    Simply use the second controller trick again to win four games in
    quick succession to end the series for the achievement. Make use of 
    Gamebreakers to score more goals during the process just so that you 
    can finish this faster. 
    Description: With the lead FIFA Street 3 profile, complete a match 
    with the Veterans in Jungle
    You can do this together with "Jungle Series" if you've the Veterans in 
    your roster. It's one of the earliest teams that you'll unlock if you 
    actually bothered to do the Street Challenge mode of the game. When 
    doing the series, take control of the Veterans. You should net the 
    points upon completing the first game in the series.
    PM Predators (50)
    Description: With the lead FIFA Street 3 profile, complete a match 
    with Predators in Riverside PM
    Getting the Predators requires more effort than the Veterans. It's a 
    team that you unlock pretty late in the Street Challenge mode (the 6th 
    challenge). If you have the team, just play any match type as them at 
    the Riverside PM and you'll get the points. Consider playing a Five-A
    -Side game though, so that you can get the "Twilight Match" achievement 
    at the same time.
    If you don't have the Predators, you'll have to go online to play a 
    Playground Picks game with someone who has it. This method is already 
    described in the Challenge Light/ Middle/ Heavyweight achievements, so 
    I won't elaborate further.
    NOTE: In the game, the Predators are simply known as "Predator" 
    (without the 's'). I guess there's a typo in the achievement list or

    Side match in Riverside PM
    I'm almost sounding like a broken record now. Play a Five-A-Side game 
    at this new location and there you go. The shortest time limit for this 
    game type is four minutes. Note again that you can't use Gamebreakers 
    in a Five-A-Side game. 
    If you've the Predators in your list, play this game as them to get 
    the "PM Predators" achievement as well.
    I consider this guide complete at this moment. All the points have 
    been unlocked, and I've helped as many people as I could to unlock 
    some of them. I sold the game just before uploading this final version 
    of the guide, so I cannot help with boosting anymore. As such, if 
    you're thinking of sending a friend request to me for this purpose, 
    I guess that's all. Have fun!

    I'd like to say that I've done better than Prima/ Bradygames/ anyone 
    else that publishes game guides, but I know that a text document can 
    never look as appealing as a thick book with colorful pages. Neverthe-
