    ***Stage Spoilers***

    This requires you to do Sonic's 3 abilities in one stage. (Modern Sonic, Act 2) The 3 abilities are:

    Ground Pound (A then B while in mid air),

    Light Dash (Y on a trail of rings)

    and Wall Jump (Simply tap A while on special walls in game to jump up repeatedly).

    I believe the earliest you can get this is Speed Highway Act 2.

    ***Solution Update***

    There is unconfirmed reports of there being more than the obvious 3 abilities required for this achievement. However all the others are likely to be done passively before you get to the stage I mentioned above so should pop there anyway. The rest of the abilities are:

    Air Boost
    Rail Switch
    Homing Attack

    LurkingWriterJust want to confirm that it's possible to get in Speed Highway Act 2 as that's where it unlocked for me.

    MegsonGroveI got this randomly on a level when I did an air boost, which I have obviously done millions of times before so who knows what the issue is!

    There has been much debate about this achievement and it's requirements, but it has been proven what must be done.

    To get this achievement you must do all of sonic's (Act 2 sonic) available moves over the course of your game. Not all in one stage.

    These moves are:
    Air Boost
    Wall Jump
    Rail Switch
    Homing Attack
    Light Dash

    Light Dash is first used in Speed Highway.
    Stomp can be used anytime (Press A then B) but is used in Crisis City
    Wall Jump can be used in Green Hill Zone and Speed Highway.
    These three are the biggest and you are forced to use them throughout the game regardless

    The move I never did which got me the achievement was the drift. To do it: Hold down boost and right trigger at the same time, then turn the left joystick sharply to the right or left. You know it is done when your in the shape of a ball and boost is still going.

    If you have questions feel free to ask.

    AceCardJonesYou're supposed to drift in Speed Highway to make the sharp turns towards the end, so even if every single thing you listed is required you should still get them passively.

    The other solutions here are great and already contain the list of what you need to do, so I won't repeat that information, but I wanted to offer one tip that can make it less of a headache if you just started playing:

    When the game shows you a tool tip such as "Press Y now to dash through the rings!", always do it. If you always follow these tool tips, you will unlock the achievement naturally without any hassle of wondering which ones you didn't do.
