I just did it. 1,000,260. And I found a simple solution, one that moreorless guarantees high multipliers.

Be warned, this is still the hardest achievement in the game, and you're still going to need a lot of skill to pull this off.

You know those street lamps in the middle area? The ones you can hit if you just tap A without aiming? Well, I think there are 5 or 6 of them, and they work in the same way at the other objects: the cabs, the HOTEL, CASTLE, and BCG signs, etc...

BUT here's the kicker. These signs ALMOST ALWAYS yield high multipliers. 3X, 4X (most common) and I even got a 5X on my successful run. I'd recommend going for the lamps FIRST, and restart if you don't get a multiplier. If you can knock out the globe and possible one (or both if you're good enough) of the other bonus targets, you can potentially hit 500,000 before you get the changeup thrown at you!

It's still tough though. You have to deal with the pitches constantly changing in speed & type, you'll hit the pitches in the oddest locations, and you'll miss good chunks of pitches. I found that when he alternates between fastballs and changeups, I do the worst. Curveballs may be your best bet for success.

The first time is roughly a 75% chance that you'll get the 3X or 4X when you get all the lights, but every other time the lights come on and you get em all, its ALWAYS a multiplier, or at worst, a 50K bonus. If you get all the lights at the start, they should come back on at approximately the same time the pitcher starts throwing change-ups. The third time will likely come when you're around the 700,000+ range, if you're lucky. I never got far enough to see them come back a fourth time.

Also, there's no specific "time," but if you're in the game for long enough, it'll go into a "sudden death" type of mode, where every pitch thrown is a super-pitch; the same time as the "payback pitch" you get if you drill the pitcher in the gut with a ball. I only got to this point ONCE (@ 950,000), but believe me when I say you're pretty much up shit creek without a paddle at this point. And that means your paddling with your hands.

Also, be warned. Technically, I got this achievement earlier today but I got ripped off. I had a little over 800,000 points, a 4X multiplier (on the 3/3 hit), and the globe staring me in the face. Essentially, if I hit the globe, I win, right? Well, I DID hit the globe, but instead of giving me 200,000 points (50,000 X 4), it only gave me 100,000 (50,000 X 2). This doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes if you get a good hit like that on the LAST hit of a multiplier, it screws you over. This wasn't the first time this happened to me either.

Taking risks is a HUGE, well, risk. I had about 3 balls left @ 900,000. I took a gamble, and hit the globe with no multiplier. Then I got SUPER lucky and just BARELY made the 1,000,000 cutoff.

And PRACTICE. Figure out a pattern that works at the start and go with it (for example, hitting the cabs early on usually results in a Pitch Mania). Try not to hit the big ass targets unless you have at least a 3X multiplier. 2X's help, but use those on the 10,000 point targets if you can.

UPDATE - I'm going to doing a video to show you how to do this. Cause I like you a lot. But don't take that too seriously. Stay tuned.
