RUGBY 15 Walkthrough

2. Story Walkthrough

STAGE 1: Simulate all 4 Divisions + Custom Cup

The first major step in your journey to the full 1000g is to navigate to the edit player screen (from the main menu go to options and then edit player) and select the New Zealand team to edit. You want to knock this achievement out first without exiting out of the game.

Win a match against an international team rated 90+, vs CPU. (Hard)
  • Unlocked by 565 tracked gamers (55% - TA Ratio = 1.34) 1,022

Edit the first 15 players on the New Zealand team putting down Speed, Acceleration, Agility and Tackling. These are the main stats I suggest, but to make the game easier you can put down more if you like. Just make sure you get the Serious Rugger Achievement soon after decreasing the stats of New Zealand, If you exit the game it will change the New Zealand teams overall to a lot less than 90 so make sure to not exit. After you earn this achievement it will not matter.

The next step is to increase an international team of your choice. I went for Australia as they are one of the highest rated teams. Depending on your confidence you can either max out all the stats for their lineup, or just the Main attributes - Speed, Acceleration, Agility, kicking, kicking power, and goal kicking. Again, you only have to increase the top 15 players. You will now want to face New Zealand (as you have made them a very weak team) for all the other achievements. Once you have decreased the sliders for your opponents and increased your stat sliders, the game is ridiculously easy.

Go into Aviva Premiership Rugby Tournament select every team as a user by pressing cn_X then cn_A to advance. Go to Simulate Match and keep pressing the cn_A until a championship screen will appear popping the Premiership achievement:

  • Unlocked by 685 tracked gamers (67% - TA Ratio = 1.22) 1,022

We will be using these exact formula for the next 3 achievements as well. Back out to the menu and into the top 14 Rugby Tournament, select every team as a user and simulate. Once every game is simulated you'll unlock the following:

Top 14 Champs in RUGBY 15

  • Unlocked by 678 tracked gamers (66% - TA Ratio = 1.22) 1,022

Back out to the menu and go into Pro D2 tournament and repeat the same process as above netting you the following achievement:

  • Unlocked by 678 tracked gamers (66% - TA Ratio = 1.22) 1,022

Back out to the menu and into Pro 12 Tournament and repeat the same process that we have been using to unlock:

Win the RaboDirect PRO12 Title.
  • Unlocked by 674 tracked gamers (66% - TA Ratio = 1.23) 1,022

Back out to the menu but this time go into Custom Cup. Go over to settings and change the team totals to 20 and press cn_start to accept. We're going to use the same method as the previous achievements, make sure every team is selected by pressing the cn_X button this time there are 4 pools with 5 teams per pool cycle through each pool by using the cn_LB/cn_RB buttons. Once you've selected every team as a user press the start button to accept and go down to simulate and sim until the championship screen comes up which you will be awarded an achievement:

  • Unlocked by 667 tracked gamers (65% - TA Ratio = 1.23) 1,022

Once this step is done we should be at 550 Gamerscore in less than an hour.

STAGE 2: Miscellaneous Achievements + Win Streak

For Stage 3 the main achievement we will be going for is the Winning Streak Achievement (10 Wins in a row) whilst getting miscellaneous achievements along the way. You can do these achievements in any order, but I'll try to break down each game to make it easier.

The Win Streak is pretty self-explanatory. Whilst going for the other achievements make sure you always play on HARD! If you at all change the difficulty and play a game on easy for example it'll break the streak. (Adjusting the sliders will make HARD very easy)

Winning 10 games in a row will net you:

Winning Streak in RUGBY 15
Win 10 matches in a row vs CPU (Hard) as the lead controller.
  • Unlocked by 480 tracked gamers (47% - TA Ratio = 1.46) 1,022

To start the next achievement, go into a friendly match and select Australia v New Zealand. Make sure you play as Australia (unless you increased the stats on another team) as it makes the game ALOT easier.

With your player sliders at max and NZ's at 0, this won't be much of an issue; New Zealand is the only team in the game with an overall of 90+ so has to be against them. With your players with insane speed and NZ's players running around like slugs, you should be easily able to run around their players and score try after try. After the game is complete you'll unlock:

Serious Rugger in RUGBY 15
Win a match against an international team rated 90+, vs CPU. (Hard)
  • Unlocked by 565 tracked gamers (55% - TA Ratio = 1.34) 1,022

These two are fairly straight forward. Make sure your sliders are adjusted and you can easily run through the defensive line. Once you're over the try line you click cn_LS to score.

  • Unlocked by 583 tracked gamers (57% - TA Ratio = 1.32) 1,022

You should also unlock another achievement while on the road to your 10 tries.

Break on Through in RUGBY 15
Run and score a try directly after breaking out of a tackle, vs CPU. (Hard)
  • Unlocked by 627 tracked gamers (61% - TA Ratio = 1.27) 1,022

The best time to go for this achievement is when you're going for "Try Haul". You want to make sure you score under the posts to make this a lot easier. To successfully convert a try you pull back on the cn_RS then flick it forward in one smooth motion. You should only need about 30% plus to go over right in front of the posts. MAKE SURE THE WIND SETTING IS ON NONE. This should net you:

Place Kick Perfection in RUGBY 15
Score on 5 place kick attempts in a row during a match, vs CPU. (Hard)
  • Unlocked by 571 tracked gamers (56% - TA Ratio = 1.33) 1,022

For 100 Meter Dash, you need to run back to your try line and pass the ball with cn_RT and cn_LS and cn_RS towards the player you want to pass to. You have to pass to another player while you're over your goal area, simply running back over with the same player won't work. Pass to your other player and run around the line which should be easy with your insane speed. Then click the cn_LS over their try line. That should unlock:

100 Meter Dash in RUGBY 15
Score a try after running the ball directly from behind your own goal line.
  • Unlocked by 677 tracked gamers (66% - TA Ratio = 1.22) 1,022

For Best Behavior, it's best to make sure the times set to 5-minute halves, go into the settings during the game and turn "offside's" off makes it less likely to get a penalty. The main instances for giving away a penalty is either not releasing the ball cn_RT while in possession of the ball or when you tackle the opponent and you use hands in the ruck when using cn_RT to try to steal the ball. So while avoiding these you shouldn't have a problem, You can either keep maintaining possession if you're confident enough holding onto the ball or what I suggest is too just keep kicking the ball to the other team and let them maintain possession doesn't matter too much if they score. Just make sure you're in the lead if you're going for the 10 wins in a row. If you don't concede any penalties in the match you should unlock:

Best Behavior in RUGBY 15
Do not concede any penalty infringements in a match
  • Unlocked by 645 tracked gamers (63% - TA Ratio = 1.25) 1,022

This achievement requires you to turn the ball over while in a ruck and has to be on HARD. A ruck occurs when you tackle the other team's ball carrier. To turn over the ball you want to move the cn_RS in different directions until you see the bar on top of the ruck turn green then quickly press tocn_RT steal the ball. Doing this too early or too late will result in a penalty. Repeat 5 times and the achievement will unlock.

Ruck Raider in RUGBY 15
Win 5 ruck turnovers in a match, vs CPU. (Hard)
  • Unlocked by 618 tracked gamers (60% - TA Ratio = 1.28) 1,022

For the Serial Pest Achievement, I recommend doing once you've got the winning streak achievement because it makes it really hard to win after exceeding alot of penalties.

A yellow/red card is awarded once you concede a penalty, The easiest way to do this is handling the ball in the ruck.

The best strategy for earning this achievement is to set the half-length to 10 minutes or more and just constantly draw penalties during a ruck by pressing cn_RT immediately after getting tackled or after you've tackled the opponent. The achievement should unlock after your second carded action. Which will unlock:

For the Long Droppie achievement, you need to perform a dropkick by holding cn_A Just over half way and before the 40-meter mark. (the wind doesn't matter for the achievement, a lot easier if there's no wind at all.) I highly recommend maxing out the kicking stats, The 40-meter mark is the dotted line after the halfway point towards your goal line. Start from your try line break the line (should be incredibly easy with max stats). Position your self in the middle of the field and once you're in the space, hold cn_A as long as you can. Aim straight and it should go over and the achievement will unlock.

Long Droppie in RUGBY 15
Score a goal from 40+ meters.
  • Unlocked by 538 tracked gamers (53% - TA Ratio = 1.37) 1,022

For starters make sure you select strong winds in the menu prior to starting a match. Make sure you've adjusted the kicking sliders in your favor (without this, the achievement is very difficult). It does require a bit of luck to get the correct wind in your favor (you want the wind to go towards your goal post).

I would suggest going for this achievement while doing the Try Haul or by generally playing for the win streak achievement.

After a successful try, you'll be given the option of selecting your conversion distance. Move the ball back to the 55m mark (a counter in the top right of the screen keeps track of distance for you), Press cn_A to confirm your distance. Pull back cn_RSd and flick it forward once your power is in the 85-90% range. It has to be a very fast motion, otherwise, the ball will dribble along the ground.

You can also get this achievement from a penalty, but the AI doesn't seem to concede penalties very often.

With maxed kicking stats and the wind behind you, this achievement should be a breeze.

With The Breeze in RUGBY 15
Score a penalty goal or conversion from 55+ meters, vs CPU. (Hard)
  • Unlocked by 539 tracked gamers (53% - TA Ratio = 1.37) 1,022

Make sure you're playing with max out kicking stats for this one.

I suggest putting strong wind conditions prior to starting a game, Once you're in possession of the ball I recommend being in your territory. Better yet within your 22-meter line (whilst in your 22m mark you can kick it out of the full to gain territory). Make sure you're center of the field and kick in the same direction as the wind is facing. The achievement will pop once the ball goes out on the full or bounces with a territorial gain of 50+ metres. This achievement may take a couple of attempts, Also a bit of luck trying to get the wind in your favor.

Big Touch Finder in RUGBY 15
Punt into touch for a territorial gain of 50+ meters.
  • Unlocked by 543 tracked gamers (53% - TA Ratio = 1.37) 1,022

I suggest doing this achievement last cause it might bug out the Winning streak achievement. Load up a game with two controlled users on the one team, keep kicking away the ball if you're in possession. If you kick it far enough into the opposition's territory they'll kick for touch.

Once you're in control of the line out one player will control the throw in, and one will control the jumper. For the user throwing the ball in you have to press cn_RT and for the jumper, you have to press cn_LT. All you have to do is press both cn_LT and cn_RT at the very same time and should easily take the throw in, netting you your last achievement.
