    To get legend status you must get:

    5 Bronzes
    3 Silvers
    1 Gold
    5000 total exp

    S.K.A.T.E is a good mode to get this in as you get 30 exp for winning. This is made easier by the fact that alot of people will be not doing anything. (As you still get exp in S.K.A.T.E if you don't do anything the whole game.)

    EDIT: Apparently S.K.A.T.E exploit has been fixed. No trick to this one now, just play alot.

    ZemidekI have a total of 5142xp and still no achievement. Anyone know anything I can do to get it?

    ZemidekJust got off the phone with EA and they told me Skate 2 is now a "Legacy" game which means they no longer give any support to it so I don't think we'll be getting medals and rankings back. Looks as if this achievement is now discontinued. I tried contacting the last 2 people that unlocked this but no response.

    Having invested a few hours into getting this achievement, I thought I'd share some of my tips.

    If you are boosting this with one other person then play Hall of Meat. Have the person winning the match set a big score in Round 1. For the rest of the match bail right at the start with LT, RT, Left analog stick and Right analog stick. Each game lasts about one minute and you get 21xp for winning and 16xp for finishing second. In one hour of boosting without any randoms, you can get ~400xp.

    If you are boosting this with three or more people then play Jam. This is a good mode to boost since randoms tend to avoid this playlist. In this game mode there are 2/3 rounds, each of which last for two minutes. The way to boost this game mode is for each player to score the exact same score in every round. If done correctly, each player will earn 27xp per match. You must score points in each round, otherwise you'll earn 0xp at the end of the game.

    Avoid the S.K.A.T.E. game mode at all costs. Randoms love this playlist and are generally very good at it. I played a game where myself and one random player were in a 10 minute game, all for a mere 30xp. I'd strongly consider leaving this mode out of the equation.

    I earned this achievement both from boosting and playing normally. Whenever I played normally, I preferred the Spot Battle game mode. Matches are usually very short and the xp values are decent enough.

    Here are my online stats for this achievement:

    Spot Battle: 699
    Best Trick: 102
    Jam: 517
    S.K.A.T.E.: 235
    Deathrace: 172
    Hall of Meat: 3,289

    Total: 5,014

    Please comment if you vote negatively. I will edit my solution to make it better.

    MK DufortThe achievements bug on me... I'm still investigating why it happen...

    1st I got mylast XP on a S.K.A.T.E. match where the person I was with left before the end.

    2nd I made my first 3000XP with the DLC, delete those for the co-op and complete my last 2000 XP

    I'm at 5100 XP now and no achievement. I will redownload the DLC and write update if I did get my achievement

    UPDATE: June 2018:
    According to this article, servers are back up, and people have started getting these rank achievements again! Time to complete the game!!!
    Skate 2 Servers Also Return Online
    ADDITIONAL UPDATE: Fozzeyyy has made a thread here that explains how we can get the achievements now, essentially we need to use the pathfinding method (see below) since the medal table is still unavailable
    Road to Legend
    FURTHER UPDATE: Despite this achievement now being obtainable, it is known to be buggy and not unlock even when the requirements have been met. CRISTIAMUZ got his achievement to unlock by playing a non-ranked spot battle. So if it won't unlock even after you've met the requirements, try playing an unranked match.
    Spoiler tags used to hide now outdated information with regards to this achievement being discontinued (it is no longer discontinued)
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    I am going to try and put together a 'modern' guide for this achievement, since the circumstances surrounding it have changed a lot since these other guides were written! It's likely that no-one will read this but I hope it's useful to someone! Click the spoiler tags to reveal massive amounts of information!

    This achievement used to be time-consuming/difficult, but recently has become almost impossible! The reason for this is that EA have managed to mess up the rank/medal/leaderboard system on the game, so that now you cannot see your rank, what medals you have achieved, or even how much exp you have in each game mode! To put this explicitly, I'll draw up a little table, with an cn_A representing 'can check' and a cn_B representing 'cannot check'
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    So clearly we now have access to a lot less useful information about our progress! If an analogy for this achievement was walking across a room, now we have to do it in the dark!
    But the actual requirements for the achievement are still exactly the same! That is to say: 5 Bronze Medals, 3 Silver Medals, 1 Gold Medal and 5000 total EXP.
    To break this down, a Bronze Medal is awarded for 100 EXP in a gamemode, a Silver Medal is awarded for 500 EXP in a gamemode, and a Gold Medal is awarded for 1000 EXP in a gamemode.
    The gamemodes are as follows: Best Trick, Spot Battle, Jam, Deathrace, Hall of Meat, and S.K.A.T.E.
    So you will need to play 5 out of 6 of these gamemodes to get the required number of medals (most people choose to avoid deathrace)
    "Ah, but pezza", I hear you say, "how on earth can we still get this achievement if we can't see the progress on medals or rank?", well the progress is still made in the background, we just cannot see it. So a new method is required, what I like to call the "Pathfinding Method":

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    I feel like I've rambled a bit there, so below is a TL;DR,
    TL;DR: Play online game modes with reference to the leaderboards until you are certain you have met the medal conditions for each mode, that is to get two to 100 EXP, two others to 500 EXP, and one to 1000 EXP, then keep playing to 5000 EXP.

    The specific method in terms of which gamemodes are required is up to you but below is an example of how you would do it:

    Locoman99I don't know how I was able to get it to pop, but apparently it came up after a random ranked game a couple hours ago. I didn't even notice! I've had all the requirements done for years

    ZemidekSo the achievement was not unlocking, out of the blue I decided to play an unranked match in a desperate attempt to get this achievement to work. After joining an unranked lobby and playing a match of spot session the achievement unlocked!

    pezza888Awesome! I'll go ahead and add that tip to the solution
