For this achievement, you must execute and successfully connect with all 14 A/D Assaults moves in the game against the CPU in Story Mode (under default settings). A/D Assaults are team-based super moves
that can only be done with specific Tag Team combinations and they each have their own unique inputs. You must perform the A/D Assault Move with each member of these teams, totaling up to 14 different Assaults moves for you to do. If the CPU blocks the move or if it misses, they will not count; make sure the A/D assault connects before moving to the next character! Also, this achievement does NOT
need to be done in one sitting in order to unlock; you are free to work on it through numerous sessions.
Listed below is every character (and team) with A/D Assaults for the entire game:
1. Yuki & Ai
2. Kyo & Iori
3. Kaede & Moriya
4. Terry & Rock
5. Haohmaru & Genjuro
6. Mr.Karate & Robert
7. Hanzo & Fuuma
Unfortunately you cannot get this achievement in Practice or Versus Mode. However, if you go into Practice Mode, you can use the COMMAND feature from the pause menu to record the A/D Assault by assigning it to any button through computation. This is known as a macro
; a single instruction that expands automatically into a set of instructions to perform a particular task. In this case, you're assigning a super move input to a particular button. Using these macros, this will allow you to perform the Assaults in Story Mode more easily simply by the touch of a button. This method is strongly
recommended. Getting Started:
1. From the main menu, select Practice Mode and choose the team that you need to perform the A/D Assault with. We will use Yuki and AI for an example.
2. Once Practice starts be sure to press Start and set GAUGE to DA-MAX so that you don't have to keep getting your meter up to do moves.
3. Now, Yuki's A/D is done like so:
(Down, Down +
, Down, Down +
, Down, Down +
) then QCF, HCB +
Throughout this solution, the prerequisites to do the A/D Assault will be displayed in (parenthesis). Make sure you wait a few seconds before inputting the move after doing the prerequisites for each A/D assault. If done correctly, Yuki and AI will form a heart and send a NeoGeo Superhero flying towards the screen who will then be playable for several seconds.
4. Once you learn how to do that, hit pause and go to COMMAND. Then go to RECORD, this will send you back to Practice. Hit
button once you're ready to perform the A/D Assault and it will record the full move for you once you perform it! If you mess it up simply hit Back button again until you pull it off. Once the move has been recorded(lasts 10 seconds) you will be back in the COMMAND settings. Go to CHECK and once you're back in Practice hit
to try out your "saved combo". Go to exit under COMMANDS and it will ask "Command Change?", choose yes and it will save that move to
5. Now you can exit and do it in Story Mode, provided that you get your meter up first of course. You'll be able to do an A/D assault once your meter is full and says, "D-Assault OK". You may need to wait a few seconds for the Auto Charge to fill up before doing one.Controls

There are 14 total A/D Assaults equating to 2 per team. So be sure to switch and use the other team member's assault after doing one with the primary character. Just keep hitting up Practice and save that fighter's Assault to them and keep trying to hit it on the CPU in Story Mode until you connect with it. Afterwards win or lose on purpose and make sure it SAVES before hitting up Story again and getting the rest. If you have trouble hitting some of your Assaults on the CPU then lose the match and use the CPU LEVEL DOWN Continue Service feature to tone the difficulty down. This should make it easier to land the A/D Assault on the CPU without them attacking or jumping around. If you're having trouble understanding the video I have provided the inputs to all 14 A/D Assaults in the clickable spoiler below. Also, please see Chucklestyle's inputs in the comments below if you continue to struggle with landing these assault moves.Note:
Inputs for these A/D Assaults can also be found in the Command List for each character under the Pause Menu.
