    Get all the Stud Multipliers and go to Bree, you can collect 5 purple Studs very fast.
    1. Behind the Savepoint
    2. Use the Oven next from the Blacksmith
    3. Open the Door from the Prancing Pony
    4. Over the Prancing Pony (on the right side is a small hatch)
    5. Shoot the 5 targets near the Prancing Pony (you need a bow or an elf)

    Change from Day to Night and collect all again and so on...

    One7TOutGreat solution :) As others have commented in other solutions, I had to get to 10,100,000,000 before the achievement popped

    Distrex RFGet all multipliers first. Turn them on and collect 3 full minikits at the end.

    I found the Battle of Pelennor Fields (Free Play) to be the easiest way to get studs.

    1) Turn on all the multipliers (of course) and the Attract Studs brick.
    2) Start Battle of Pelennor Fields.
    3) Set down controller - your character will ride through the first part automatically.
    4) Pick up controller when Fell Beast attacks and pick up the three purple studs and their neighbors.
    5) Save and quit, 235,000,000 studs richer in under two minutes.

    Note: You can make 275,000,000 studs if you manually control the rider in the first part and grab a purple stud that is hidden in a bush just before the ramp - probably 2/3 to 3/4 of the way through the ride.

    ForbiddenJobuDid you do it enough times to earn 10,000,000,000 studs?

    To help get to 10 billion faster, you need to look to buy Stud Multipliers. There are 5 (2x, 4x, 6x, 8x & 10x) like all LEGO games. Applying them all together will create an even greater multiplier: 3840x.

    •2x - Use the code 1F5YH2
    •4x - in Amon Hen (first quest to the left of map statue); Craft Item needed is the Mithril Fishing Rod. The Red Brick costs 1,000,000.
    •6x - located in Edoras (below the statue from map view); Craft Item needed is the Mithril Top Hat (located in The Battle of Pelennor Fields; after fight with The Witch King, blow up one of the Mithril LEGO Pieces); Red Brick costs 4,000,000.
    •8x - located in Helm's Deep (to the left of the map stone from map view); Craft item needed is the Mithril Shield (located in The Path of the Dead; to left of final area before fight); Red Brick costs 8,000,000.
    •10x - located in Cirith Ungol (to the left near two Mithril pieces); Craft Item needed is the Mithril Squeak Sword. The Red Brick costs 10,000,000.

    Something else that could probably help is the Attract Studs extra - C7FJ7B.

    TIP: A way to get to 10 billion faster is to try to avoid buying characters and other red bricks beside the multipliers until you reach 10 billion. Also, try to work your way to getting the 10x first so that after you spend the 10,000,000, you can regain the studs quicker since you'll have the biggest individual multiplier.

    Thanks to SiebeTolsma for pointing out:

    There seems to be a bug with this achievement that WB has even addressed: "Sometimes, the Achievement for collecting 10 billion studs (Delved too Greedily...) doesn't unlock once 10 billion studs are collected. If this occurs, you may need to collect 100 million more studs (10,100,000,000)."

    In a way that makes sense since technically the achievement says to "collect more than 10,000,000,000", but that should just mean 10,000,000,001.

    He also suggested that a good place to collect studs is in Minas Tirith right when you load up the game. Smash the tree in the center that will give you a whole mess of studs. Once you've collect all its studs, fast travel to the night version of the area and repeat this process.

    DarkDan8810,000,000,000 is ten thousand million. 10,000,000,000,000 is ten billion. The more you know.

    DarkDan88I think the solution author is referring to the map stone, not the tower itself. Since the Cirith Ungol map stone is the nearest map stone to the x10 red brick location. Also, Cirith Ungol IS in Mordor.

    Mental Knight 5Wikipedia says the UK gave up in 1974 and started calling 1,000,000,000 a billion like the rest of the English-speaking world.
