    A straight forward enough challenge to complete.
    Simply collect as many studs as possible, simple enough?
    Well, this would take till next year without the use of multiplier bricks.

    To ensure a quick and hassle free experience, I recommend acquiring as many of these bricks (the multiplier bonus stacks, so it multiples studs you collect by up to 3840). The attract studs brick is also very useful, as any near by studs are collected as you run around collecting them.

    Once you have them, re-run missions destroying everything, collect studs from around the city or go create smashing in the helicarrier (smash everything in all the rooms then exit helicarrier and enter again, this respawns them, then rinse and repeat).

    Make sure you buy the bricks in Deadpool's room (enter helicarrier, take left door then first right, then unlock on the 2nd screen in the room) and activate them on the extras menu when you pause the game.

    BrutalSleeperRemember it's two billion studs. Not two million.

    Big EllI'm sure he's saying he hopes his percentage will go up at that point. Maybe. :)

    I just spent the day replaying the game and re-earning 2 billion studs from scratch. This was done by deleting my original 100% save file. My counter is still stuck on 6% for Stud Magnate.

    I'm thinking that it's fully glitched on my profile and there is nothing I can do.

    TheNutman69321It's not just your profile. It is extremely common and is glitched for many people myself included. Lucky it's just a challenge and not an achievement.

    That505GuySo if your percentage is at 0% its glitched?

    Evenger Ostro^oh that could very well be. I thought it'd only count player 1's studs as it pretty much only showed half of what I collected. But could be the ghost studs as well. Anyways, got it. Not sure what could cause 0% for some people.

    BasileusA very good place to collect a lot of studs without running through the city are the two minigames on the Helicarrier, where you shoot those little flying ships. With all multipliers activated, it will boost your studs a lot.
    Remember that you can do the minigames again and again, but you have to go to the city to reset them.

    FlutteryChickenEasiest way I found to getting this is once you have all the multipliers do the House Party Protocol mission (it's the stark A logo) in free play, you will end up finishing the level with 450+ million each time you play it.
    Unlocked during my 4th/5th play through for me.

    Sac2uneakI found the easiest way to the 2 billion is to collect the 4, 6, and 10x bricks along with "collect ghost bricks." set a location on the map, and collect Deadpool's red studs. you'll be done in like 15-20 minutes from 0. I completed this on the 30th at 8 PM....but it didn't unlock. I checked the "featured achievement board, and it was no longer there. So I quit my game (saved of course). when I went to load my saved game it said it was the 31st at 4:00 AM. I checked the settings on my XBone, and they were correct, it said 01/30/14 8:12pm. I even posted them on facebook on the 30th! Microsoft said game developer's at WB could help, then WB said Microsoft's fault, then Microsoft said (as they always do) "It's your isp!" i seriously re-considering my purchase for the one. Even when I had the 360 There were some serious issues with achievements unlocking that weren't suppose to, and not unlocking when they were. Hence my "true achievement status is pretty much void.
