Here’s how you complete the Standard Goals for AC/DC:

Complete a Super Skill Shot: When launching your ball, hold the right flipper up and keep it up. The ball will be ejected past the bumpers and down to the flippers. Hit any shot (either ramp, loop, and maybe the bell) within a few seconds afterwards to score a Super Skill Shot and complete the goal.

Score a Song Jackpot: This one can be a little tricky if you’re not good with the cannon. At the beginning of the game, hitting either ramp will load the cannon, giving you a free shot at the Song Jackpot. As the cannon swings out, fire (with the A button) when the cannon is pointing directly at the middle target in the AC/DC bank (you’ll see it, it will be the only target standing and flashing). Hitting it will score the Jackpot and complete the goal. If you miss, you’ll need to relight the cannon by spelling F-I-R-E in the lanes above the flippers 3 times, then hitting another ramp to reload the cannon for another shot. Remember to use your flippers to change which letter is lit and unlit so you can spell F-I-R-E faster!

Complete a 3-Way Combo: Combos are scored by hitting a shot on one side followed quickly by a shot on the other side (i.e. left ramp > right ramp or right ramp > bell). If you screw up, the counter resets. Simply get 3-4 successful left-right-left shots in a row and the goal is yours.

Activate 2X Scoring: This one is easy. Just hit the Bell enough times (I believe 3 or 4) to begin 2X scoring and clear the goal.

Earn an Extra Ball: There are a couple ways to light extra ball:

1. Complete 25 combos
2. Complete the AC/DC, TNT and ROCK target banks twice each

Once you’ve done either of those two things, the right loop lights for extra ball. The shot must be hard enough to land in the Jukebox from the right loop for the extra ball to be scored.

Strategy: Completing each bank of targets twice is the easier of the two methods, especially if you use Multiballs effectively (hit ramps to light Jam, complete target banks to light Album and complete loop shots to light Tour, the right ramp starts them once they’re flashing). There’s no way to keep track of how many times you’ve completed each target bank, so keep a mental note in your head as you play.
