    For this achievement, you will need to collect all the pellets in one combo. You will need a well levelled character.

    You'll want to start with the manual pellets in front of you from the start, and then grind over the halfpipe. Make sure to manual out of the grind, collecting the ground pellet, and shooting yourself up the quarter pipe high enough to connect with the grind. Continue the grind to the lower level, and jump off to the left side aiming for the manual pellet (2nd room now). You will need a lot of speed here, but if done correctly, hold the manual up the quarter pipe, jumping to connecting with the grind on the higher pipes. Now grind around the corners, jumping off at the red pellet and finishing with the final 4 manual pellets.

    MaseJWeird. Just like Graceland BoOya, I ended my combo missing the second last green. I bailed while turning to collect it, then got up, manual'd over it & achievement popped. I'll take it though. Thanks for the vid +1

    SYst3M0FAd0WnzzIf anyone still needs this achievement, I can confirm that you can get 31 out of 35 pellets and bail, then manual and get the next 4 pellets and continue to manual until the achievement pops a few seconds later.

    MtldThe glitch still works, but I was only able to make it work for the last 4 manual pellets. Also, I was never able to hit the high grind above the hangar door (I tried for hours). Until I realized that if I quickly tapped A a couple times during take-off, I was able to catch more air and get to it every time. I think that's because I'm used to play other Tony Hawk games and tend to keep A pressed all the time... or maybe I just suck. Anyhow, I'm glad to be done :)

    I have found a technique that takes almost all of the difficulty out of this achievement for those who are struggling to collect all the pellets in one combo.

    The concept is after having collected every pellet you MUST have LANDED only one combo. So if you bail and never land a trick until you collect the last pellet, you can break the run into as many segments as you're comfortable with.

    I recommend using MAKA's combo line as a guide. It shows the best route to collect the pellets on one run.

    I personally found it best to break the line into three combos: The first section stops right after you break the glass into the second room and collect the green pellet on the ground, go up the ramp and hold a grab move until you bail.

    The second section starts from the high rail in this room until you collect the red pellet after breaking through the glass a second time. Again hold a grab move to bail.

    Now you're down to those last four green pellets, collect them in one manual perform a flip trick and the achievement will unlock.

    ***Note: if you just land the manual, it will not unlock.***

    Let me know if this helps or if I need to explain anything clearer.

    TrombonafideI followed every bit of advice and worked on this for over two hours. Nothing. Never popped for me.

    Edit: finally got it. I think one extra thing that could throw this off is the game counting a regular Ollie as a trick even when it doesn’t show points. On my successful run, I made it through the first glass, manual through the green, and bailed on the top rail grind. Unlike what normally happens, I respawned on the top shelf and rolled into the grind, then finished as explained above.

    zeldafanjtlYeah, I think you're onto something about Ollies counting. I went through the solution as described and it didn't work, but then I did it again avoiding even landing Ollies, and it popped.

    Having your stats maxed will obviously help. I found that you need to ollie onto the first rail, and go straight into a manual off of it to maintain enough speed for the rest of the run.

    There's also a glitch that might make it easier for you if you're having trouble. The last 4 manual pellets don't have to be collected as part of the combo. You can bail, collect the last 4 manual pellets, and the achievement will still unlock.
