    To get this achievement you must:
    1) Unlock rockubot
    2) Play with him

    1) You unlock Rockubot when you beat ALL FREE GIGS on drums, regardless of the difficulty.

    It doesn't have to be after times square as other solutions suggest; this will be true however if you do all gigs in order since times square is the last free gig.

    This means you do NOT REQUIRE:
    - USA - Tool
    - Tahiti
    - Canada
    - Australia
    - Asgard

    2) To play with him, you can look for an online match of any type after unlocking him, and you will be able to choose him, which will be free; or if you don't want to go online, you can buy him for $15,000 and play with him locally.

    troyoyI beat the game in co-op and it said I unlocked the two drummer characters. I cant find them anywhere to buy them. I was told you have to do the drums in single player to unlock the characters. Do you know if that is true?

    EvilPuggyThank you. :)

    And troyoy, you buy characters by going to 'select rocker', but I think you might have to play on specific instruments for certain characters. For example, you can't play drums as Hayley Williams.

    WanderingPlotorOnce it is onlocked, and you select Rockubot as your character for an online match, do you have to be playing drums? I finally found a match online, and played as Rockubot as guitarist, but it didn't unlock.

    You unlock Rockubot after beating the drum tour. After beating the song at times square you unlock him. Then just change your character and select Rockubot. Play a song and after the song you get the achievement.

    PvtCaboose32It will not work if you do it in a different career besides the drum career.
