    To unlock you must simply complete the story mode beating all eight opponents using TJ combo on any difficulty earning any objectives.

    If you want progress towards :
    Killer InstinctRivaled!The Rivaled! achievement in Killer Instinct worth 299 pointsComplete Season 2 Story Mode

    He has three objectives, and all can be completed in one run.

    1) Beat story mode. Simply win all eight fights.

    2) Use an auto barrage on all eight opponents. This is TJ's combo trait, and is activated by cancelling an auto double into a combo utilising all six punch and kick combinations. To get the damage ender required (heavy punch animation) do not follow an Auto with the same strength.

    For instance, use LP, MP, HP, LK, MK, HK (cn_Xcn_Ycn_RBcn_Acn_Bcn_RT)

    Hopefully this helps :

    3) Ultra combo Fulgore in the Pinncale. Simply beat Fulgore with an Ultra in the seventh fight. His ultra is cn_left,cn_right+cn_LB when Fulgore's health is reading 'danger'.

    TBS NikolaiIn your video you say you do LP, MP, HP, HK, MK, LK, does that work or does doing HP and then HK negate it???

    I only ask cause your text says HP to LK but video says HP to HK.

    LavindatharI think it's safer to not do hp next to HK, but I'm not home so currently can't check. The video shows it working, but if your at your console it's wasy enough to check.

    Best to follow hp with LK, I might have said it wrong in the video, or check the video inputs, been a while since I played, and if didn't main tj

    MatPavaI struggled a lot to get this, then I found out a nice trick: disable combo assist (press X in fighter selection screen).
    Do your combo opener and then the six buttonLP, MP, HP, LK, MK, HK

    xShoot4WarAmpsxThis is the most frustrating one. Had to do this one multiple times. Once to get the dumb auto barrage with Combo assist disabled. Another time to complete the story as I failed to get the barrage on a prior attempt and multiple times to get the ultra on the damn Fulgore. For some damn reason the Ultra NEVER activates against Fulgore in Pinnacle......... Have 0 issues using Ultra on any of the other 7 and most frustrating part is you cant just lose and retry because by then he's dead and you cant go back.....
