Ghostbusters: The Video Game

Welcome to the Ghostbusters walkthrough!

Ghostbusters: The Video Game for Xbox 360 was released in June 2009 in North America but delayed in Europe until November 2009 due to a Sony exclusivity deal on the PS3, however region coding was removed from the Xbox 360 version so it is possible to play the NTSC disc version on PAL consoles. It was developed by Terminal Reality, who outsourced the Multiplayer to Threewave Software and published by Atari, except in Europe where it was published by Sony.

Within weeks of the June release, it was evident from gamers that there were issues with the multiplayer preventing the unlocking of achievements. Several weeks after the June release, a patch was released for PS3 to fix the issues in screen resolution and performance, however this included fixes from Threewave for Multiplayer Trophies, though it did not work for those gamers who had already fully met the requirements for one or more and were now stuck, at least new players or some fortunate ones that played pre-patch were ok. That year Threewave Software appeared to have closed for the most part.

Sadly for Xbox 360 there was no patch released, at the time it was believed it was delayed due to either the European release or because the major Xbox Dashboard revision coming out that year, sadly it never saw the light of day and the code was lost.

Over a year later due to public pressure from gamers, Terminal Reality attempted their own patch from scratch and released it at the beginning of December 2010, while this did address a couple of issues, it did not address them all and a number of multiplayer achievements still suffer issues unlocking for gamers. Players continued to pressure Terminal Reality for a new complete patch and to reset the server-side data for Multiplayer progress on both Xbox and PS3 (for the few early players who were stuck), however this never came about and in December 2013, Terminal Reality closed down.

Firstly, some warnings for the multiplayer achievements you should keep in mind.

  • Try to play with a committed group, quitters in a match can cancel out progress for achievements, in fact if someone else quits you might as well cancel the match, quit and start it again.
  • Recommended not to use any DLC if you were lucky enough to get any of them.
  • Recommended to host if you're going for achievements.
  • Recommended to play the campaigns in game order (e.g. start with library and end in graveyard).
  • Recommended to do all campaigns together, one after another in the same session.
  • Recommended to concentrate on one player getting an achievement like Payday! at a time, don't switch every campaign.
  • Recommended to have other players use dummies instead of their main accounts when not placing first in matches.

Use teamwork! Picking up downed teammates is obvious, but some ghosts require extra finesse to capture. Fat ghosts of any kind are very annoying to keep in the trap until they're contained, but having 2-3 people all pulling it into the same trap at once makes it much easier. Slime tether often, and always be mobile to avoid being stunlocked by certain enemies.

Now to learn the wonky controls:

cn_A - Action button
cn_B - Hold to run, tap to jump
cn_X - Throw out trap
cn_Y - Use goggles
cn_LB - Turn damage stream into capture stream when shooting
cn_RB - Vent pack to prevent overheating
cn_LT - Alternate fire/slam trapped ghost
cn_RT - Shoot
cn_dpad - Select powerup
cn_RS - Move trapped ghost


  • Slime Tether (cn_LT with the slime powerup equipped) is the best way to capture ghosts. Attach one end to your trap, one end to them, and it will slam them into the ground. Even if they don't get dunked into the trap right away, they'll be at low enough health where they can be captured through normal means.
  • For all gargoyles, flying books, cherubs and skulls they can be slammed instantly and destroyed. As soon as you start attacking them the reticule will turn red, get them in a capture stream and slam them for an instant takedown.

Starting with multiplayer, since doing the single player first is likely to cause an achievement to become discontinued for you permanently. Great design, right? Anyway, the first thing you'll want to tackle is the buggiest of them all: Campaign mode. I suggest having 2 available players to do this with 2 more on standby, since some stuff later on gets tricky, but I don't recommend everyone start on their main accounts. Have one person start off on their main while the other 3 use dummies, in order to avoid triggering the glitches that litter this online mode. Start off by selecting any of the campaigns, where you'll have to do a series of jobs on 3 maps back to back. The jobs are selected randomly, and the person on their main has to be the highest scoring player at the end of the campaign (I was the highest scoring on each individual job, to be safe). The modes you may get are as follows:

  • Protection - Oof, this is a bad boy. In order for this to count you must raise all 3 PKE towers and successfully win the match. The best solution here is to have the player going for "Payday!" capture one ghost, then have player 2 whittle down the other ghosts health before using their capture stream to hold the ghost in place until the tower is fully raised. If another ghost spawns, player 1 will have to do the same. Repeat for tower 2. For the final tower a "boss" will spawn that can't be contained, so have player 2 lure them away from the tower by occasionally shooting it. Player 1 will stand on the tower and kill any minions that come off the boss, preventing them from damaging the tower. After the final tower is raised, you win. If you get Protection on Cemetery, just set your controller down and let time run out, since it's impossible with less than 4.
  • Survival- Easy as can be, just capture the ghosts in the first round and then die in the 2nd for this to count.
  • Thief - Another easy one, protect all the relics until time runs out. So long as you still control at least one relic once the time runs out, you win. Have all players standing by the relics at all times, attacking any thieves that grab them to make them fall back onto the ground.
  • Destruction - So long as at least one relic is destroyed, you win.
  • Containment - Have player 1 capture a single ghost, then just let the timer expire for this to count.

Go through all 4 campaigns like this, making sure player 1 always gets the most points. At the end of the first campaign you should unlock:

Loans Paid Off in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
More than $100,000 earned in Xbox LIVE.
  • Unlocked by 14,281 tracked gamers (22% - TA Ratio = 2.12) 64,792

On the Payroll in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Successfully complete one Xbox LIVE campaign.
  • Unlocked by 15,767 tracked gamers (24% - TA Ratio = 2.02) 64,792

While you're going through these maps and gametypes, keep an eye out for powerups. They're the floating canisters that spawn around the map, and they come in a variety of colors. Every time you see a new one, pick it up. They are:

  • Green - Green Slime, good for slime tethering ghosts with cn_LT but awful if fired regularly.
  • Pink - Pink slime, turns creatures with physical bodies against each other.
  • Blue - Stasis, a powerful close range shotgun but also a freezing beam that is very helpful against the blue ghosts.
  • Blue lightning - Instantly knocks out all enemies on the map
  • Purple ball - Provides a shield that lasts for quite a long time
  • Purple rod - Shrinks all enemies and makes them more susceptible to damage.
  • Orange - Meson Collider, a very powerful but inaccurate blast shot that deals a ton of damage.
  • Red - Electron booster, makes your regular beam more powerful.

After picking all of these up at least once, you will earn:

Egon's Guinea Pig in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Use one of every pickup (both power-ups and equipment).
  • Unlocked by 9,004 tracked gamers (14% - TA Ratio = 2.67) 64,792

Note: This is extremely buggy. It unlocked for me as soon as I collected the last powerup I needed. Others in my group needed to collect powerups for hours before it unlocked for them. Some say it never unlocks at all. Be warned.

With all that done you will hopefully unlock:

Payday! in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Payday!90 (10)
Be the overall top earner in each Xbox LIVE campaign setting.
  • Unlocked by 807 tracked gamers (1% - TA Ratio = 8.98) 64,792

Note: Payday is notoriously buggy. If you follow the procedures outlined above it SHOULD unlock for you. I even failed multiple times on campaigns before it finally unlocked. Just make sure to do it ASAP.

You'll also have unlocked:

It's a Living in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Trap over 50 ghosts in your Xbox LIVE Ghostbusting career.
  • Unlocked by 10,565 tracked gamers (16% - TA Ratio = 2.47) 64,792

While going through all the game types and modes for "Payday!" it is advised you keep track of the awards you earn at the end of each round for "Overachiever", since many rely on you placing first within a match. The achievement tied to them is (surprise!) extremely buggy and the qualifications are vague at best. 50 completed jobs will come naturally (you need 60 for the Most Wanted Ghosts) and the $2,500,000 will be attained pretty early on. The 30 post-job awards are the mysterious ones, as we don't really know whether or not the awards have to be unique or not. We assume so, since you get an award at the end of every job so having 50 jobs as a qualification alongside this would be redundant. Mine eventually unlocked in the middle of a game, way after I met all the qualifications and before I hit 30 unique awards. From what I gathered, these steps work:

  • Go for most awards in campaign. It is the most likely game mode to give you something unique, we couldn't get 75% of the awards to trigger in Instant mode.
  • Keep track of the awards you get and the gametype you get them in. For example if you unlock the Slowpoke award in Destruction and Containment, it will count twice.
  • Focus on awards specific to gametypes before moving onto general awards.
  • Slime Dunk is a good mode to farm awards with a 2nd person

Here are all the awards:


The Real Ghostbuster - Most ghosts trapped or destroyed

Aint Afraid Of No Ghost - Least amount of knockouts
Medic - Most revivals of teammates
Most Revived - Most times revived by a teammate

So by the law of averages you'll eventually unlock:

Overachiever in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Get over $2,500,000 in Xbox LIVE, over 30 post-job awards, 50 jobs completed.
  • Unlocked by 1,702 tracked gamers (3% - TA Ratio = 6.16) 64,792

Since you completed all the modes except one to get "Payday!", jump into an Instant game of Slime Dunk with your partner. They can sit still as you capture the Slimer's, and at the end of the game you'll unlock:

Employee of the Month in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Be top earner in each Xbox LIVE job type.
  • Unlocked by 2,915 tracked gamers (4% - TA Ratio = 4.71) 64,792

Now the real grind begins. You need to win every game type on every map, and "winning" is much more difficult than it was for "Payday!". Start with Slime Dunk since it's by far the easiest, go through on every map and capture as many ghosts as you can in order to win awards, accumulate money, and ensure the win. You'll also need to capture 20 Slimers on every map for a Most Wanted Ghost, but I had between 15-20 on all maps before it appeared so that may be bugged in a positive way. Use this checklist provided by TA user AC1DGro0ve 3o3 to keep track of what you're winning on which maps:

Now onto actual strategy:

Slime Dunk - By far the easiest game mode, just have your partner stand still while you capture Slimer's. Recommended players: 2

Containment - This one really sucks, you need to capture 15-20 ghosts (depending on the amount of players you have) within the time limit. The time gets an extension after every ghost you capture, but it's always pretty tight. It gets exceptionally annoying when the ghosts run around the map and teleport away from you, wasting valuable seconds. The best strategy here is to have everyone specialize in the Slime gun in the lobby so you all start with it. Use the slime tether (cn_LT) to attach ghosts to nearby surfaces and bring them down to stunned immediately. Sometimes you can tether them to the trap you set and capture them instantly. Once the ghost is stunned, capture it. Refill slime from map pickups and repeat until victory, but don't expect them to always cooperate. Recommended players: 4

Destruction - Somewhere around 25 relics will spawn around the map and you must destroy them all within 5 minutes. Have everyone specialize in Stasis or Meson, since those deal high damage to the relics. Don't focus on enemies, since destroying the relic which summoned them despawns them all. Have 2 players on one end of the map and 2 on the other destroying relics, but have everyone come together to work on the red ones that spawn bosses. Recommended players: 4

Protection - Same strategy as the campaign, have both players hold a ghost in place with the capture stream and without setting down a trap for the first 2 rounds.On the third, have someone bait the boss around while the other player sits on the PKE tower and destroys any incoming minions. The most challenging map by far is Cemetery, since that horrible boss refuses to be baited and one hit from him drops the tower to 0% no matter what. For that map, we had 4 players all using Stasis and we froze him at the spawn. We all kept tapping cn_LT periodically after freezing him, keeping the boss stationary until the tower fully charged. Nothing else can spawn with him frozen and we won the match. Recommended players: 2, 4 on Cemetery

Survival - These are just long and boring. You must survive all 10 waves to secure a victory, all the maps are pretty easy. the 10th wave will always be a boss round, so make sure you have a Meson prepared for that. Otherwise just coordinate with your team and make sure at least one person is always alive. The worst map is Basement Stacks, we repeatedly had the ghosts on wave 8 infinitely respawn and had to restart. Wave 10 is no joke either, use Meson's to focus on the book men and stasis shotguns to finish them off before you're overwhelmed by minions. Recommended players: 4

Thief - Another very easy one, just hold onto at least one artifact until the time expires. Stand near the safe area attacking anything that comes close and you'll be fine. Recommended players: 2-4

After doing that on every map available for that gametype you will unlock:

Gozer's Most Wanted in Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Successfully complete each Xbox LIVE job in every location.
  • Unlocked by 1,196 tracked gamers (2% - TA Ratio = 7.37) 64,792

Note: This is also reported to be buggy. If it doesn't unlock for you after completing the last necessary map, start again and go through them all until it unlocks. Matches sometimes don't count as a win, but there's no way to determine when it does or does not besides going to Xbox Live Statistics at the end of the match and seeing if your counter goes up.

Now surely, as you were traversing those levels, you came across at least some Most Wanted ghosts. These guys all have special criteria that unlocks them, and most only appear on certain maps. I suggest grinding out criteria for these alongside doing gametypes for Gozer's, so that way they'll appear as you cycle through maps normally. This is easier, since you don't need to "win" these jobs to complete them. In Survival you can fail after round 1, or just catch 1 ghost in containment, it will still count. Here are the ghosts and the qualifications needed to unlock them:

If that's the case, play on another console (Xbox One backwards compatibility works) and host a game where you play with someone who has a fresh account. Go through the ghosts again with them and this should unlock.

That's the nightmare multiplayer nonsense done, now onto the single player.

Just as a note, go through destroying as many things in the game as possible. Cars, chandeliers, anything of value. You need to accumulate over $3 million worth of damage by the time you finish.

Video guides will be provided at the beginning of each chapter if you prefer visual guides to missable achievements and collectibles.

Approach the group in the HQ to get a cutscene, then interact with the car to start the next mission.

New York Public Library

Walk up to the lion statue to make the ghosts emerge, then follow them into the library. You;ll learn how to equip and use Stasis, which is very useful. Use your PKE meter to find the ghost hiding in the board downstairs, then follow it down the hallway and into the reading room. The golem that forms here is Scan 13/48, once you have that use your Stasis shotgun to take it down. Go to the far end of this room and open the doors on the left side, scanning Artifact 13/42 directly in front of you. Go to the other set of doors and make your way downstairs, stopping in the room with the levitating furniture. When someone says "Check this out" walk over to the bookshelf on the right with your PKE meter out and quickly grab Scan 14/48 when the librarian pops out. Follow the path until you get to the library itself, where the shelves will rearrange themselves and turn into a maze. Navigate the path until you walk into a room where a blue book creature runs past the door, turn left and collect Artifact 14/42 from the table. Facing the artifact turn right and go down the lat row of books to the end, where a creature will jump at you for Scan 15/48. Dispose of it and continue on to the door at the other end of this room.

After dealing with the books, 2 new ghosts will spawn in which count as Scans 17-18/48. Capture them, get some dialogue and leave this room.

The book stands will circle around the room projecting a shield onto the librarian, get in close with the stasis shotgun and blast all the stands.

When you attempt to enter the next portal you'll be attacked by a golem, kill it and proceed up the stairs and through the portal on the left. Collect Artifact 17/42 from the ground here and return to the previous room. Cut across and go up the stairs to another portal, then proceed along the path. Defeat the golem and meet up with Ray, who will teach you how to slime tether. Do so to move the bridge and the wall in the next room, then follow him to another portal that locks you out. Continue down the hall and turn around at the dead end, where another ghost will spawn. Scan it for Scan 21/48. I laid down a trap, weakened the ghost, and slime tethered it into the trap for:

Exit the firehouse, quit, and load up the last checkpoint of the game. The last boss is pretty annoying, concentrate on him with the Meson until he pops up in the center, then concentrate on the pillars so he doesn't regain too much health.
