Trophy Guide & Road Map [toggle]

Wow! You've gotten all the trophies in Rock Band 2

Collect all other trophies in the game and this will automatically unlock.

Gold Starred a song

Easiest Song to do this on is Today by The Smashing Pumpkins, also if you play Expert Bass on So Whatcha Want and 100 percent it and use your star power, you can easily gold star this song.

Scored 100% notes hit as a guitarist on Expert

Probably any song off the first tier would be easiest for this. Today is still really easy for this one. If you have your Rock Band 1 license and all those songs, you can pick an easy song off
of that game as well.

Scored 100% notes hit as a drummer on Expert

There is a free song on the Downloads section called Charlene,  Download that and this trophy is a breeze, if you want to spend money, download Silver by The Pixies, that song is ridiculsously easy on expert drums. If you are looking for a song on RB2 itself, I would recommend Float On.

Scored a 100% rating as a vocalist on Expert

I recommend a Beastie Boys song, all you have to do is talk through it or if you've downloaded the Earache pack 1, try that At The Gates song, it is real short and you just have to talk through it.

Scored 100% notes hit as a bassist, up-strums only, on Expert

Easiest song ever to do this is So Whatcha Want. Remember to Strum Up.

100% on a guitar solo on Expert, using only the solo buttons

This trophy sucks because it suckers you into getting a Rock Band guitar, you can use either the original Rock Band one or the new one. You must use the lower fret buttons and 100  percent a solo on expert. Today has a really easy solo.

Maintained deployed Overdrive for 90 seconds.

This doesn't have to be done solo, can be done with a band, have 1 person probably the drummer deploy their's first, then when it is about to run out have someone activate their's and so on. Probably easier to do on Medium so the notes are easier.

Earned more than 1,000,000 points in a single song

Have a full band and just pick a long song and do really well. Easier if everyone is playing on expert and doing really well. Green Grass And High Tides is good if you have everyone playing on Hard or higher.

Defeated a player in either Score Duel or Tug of War

Just beat someone online, doesn't matter which gametype. Can be done in Player.

Defeated the last player that defeated you in either Score Duel or Tug of War

Just find a player online and if you are really good, let them beat you and then on the rematch, beat them. Can be done in Player.

Was a savior 3 times during a single song

Requires at least 3 players in the band, 1 must fail twice and then the other can fail once. Just save them all 3 times and you have it.

Deployed Vocal Overdrive 4 times in a single song

This is fairly simple since it can be done on any difficulty. Just pick a song that is fairly long and sing really well on it. Pick a song with a lot of talking parts.

Achieved an 8x Band Multiplier

Must have a full Band, just wait until everyone has Overdrive and then have everyone activate it.

Completed the Endless Setlist 2 without pausing or failing

Best bet for doing this is to have a rock band party, whenever someone has to go relieve him/herself, just pass the guitar to  someone else. Also, you may want to do it on medium, so it is way easier. I would say easy but medium is the lowest you can do it on.

Bought over $100,000 worth of items from the Rock Shop

Just keep playing Band World Tour and earning money. All items bought count towards this achievement.

Made a band logo

When you create a band, go to band profile and you can create a logo, you just throw something on it and then save.

Competed in a Battle of the Bands event

When on the Band menu, you can select to play a Battle of The Bands challenge. You don't have to do well and can do it by yourself, just finish it and you get this.

Hired a staff member

While playing Band World Tour, you will be given a chance to hire a staff member, just pick one and you get this.

Made a music video in World Tour

While playing band World Tour, you will randomly get a chance to record a video, just do it and you get this.

Won a Van in World Tour

While playing World tour, you will get a chance to play for a van, just complete that and this is yours.

Won a Bus in World Tour

While playing World tour, you will get a chance to play for a bus, just complete that and this is yours.

Won a Jet in World Tour

While playing World tour, you will get a chance to play for a jet, just complete that and this is yours.

Reached 1,000,000 fans in World Tour

This works the same way as Rock Band 1, you can only get so many fans by playing on Easy, Medium and Hard. Once it reaches max for those, you must play on Expert, you can gain unlimited fans while playing on Expert. You also get more fans for earning more stars.

Joined the Rolling Stone Rock Immortals list

This is the same as the Hall of Fame Inductee from Rock Band 1, keep playing Band World Tour until you can play the Hall of Fame.

Finished the Endless Setlist 2 in World Tour on Medium

Unlock the Endless Setlist in Band World Tour and complete it on Medium, Takes a long time to complete. Must play all songs on the game. It takes place in Shanghai.

Finished the Endless Setlist 2 in World Tour on Hard

Same as Vinyle Artist but do it on Hard.

Finished the Endless Setlist 2 in World Tour on Expert

Same as Above, but do it on Expert, I recommend doing the Guitar/Bass Combo, there are some pretty hard songs on  guitar and bass, so you can watch each other's backs for this one. If you are really decent at expert vocals or expert bass, you can attempt this by yourself. Only songs on expert bass you need to worry about are Painkiller, Panic Attack and Visions.

Beat an instrument-specific challenge while playing another instrument

Have two playing, have one playing guitar and do the guitar challenge and you play something else, you will get this at the end.

Completed either 25 Challenges on Medium, 10 Challenges on Hard, or 5 Challenges on Expert

On the Band World Tour menu you can pick challenges, just complete the requirement for one of these, I recommend finding easy ones and do them on expert.

Completed either 25 Challenges on Hard, or 10 Challenges on Expert

Same as above but more to complete.

Completed 25 Challenges on Expert

You must do 25 challenges on Expert, Fairly simple since there are over 70 challenges to pick from, just complete the easiest ones. All songs from the list must be done on expert.

Unlock an Impossible Challenge

This is the last tier of challenges, fastest way to unlock is to play instrument specific challenges. Like do the Fretband challenges on each tier.

Beat the Impossible Band Challenge

To unlock this, complete all the Band Challenges on each tier. Can be done on any difficulty.

Beat any Impossible Challenge on Expert

After you unlock the last tier of challenges, you will have a few to pick from, just pick an easy one for you and complete it on expert. Doing this on Drums, good luck with that. If you are doing this on guitar or bass just watch out for Panic Attack, Painkiller and Visions.
