MLB The Show 22 Full Achievement And Trophy List

Here is every Achievement and Trophy in MLB The Show 22.


MLB The Show 22 is now out for everyone, which means that PlayStation and Xbox players alike can start attempting to clear out the achievement and trophy list. The game has 25 achievements and trophies, with PlayStation having one additional trophy for the platinum. The majority of the list are things that will happen naturally over the course of a few dozen baseball games, with a couple requiring specific difficulty settings. Only a few will require some dedication, but even then, the overall list isn't too tough.

Overall, the list is relatively achievable, with only a few items that will require a concentrated effort on your part. Things like the Professional Framer, Fight Fire with Fire, and Don't rub it will all occur naturally over regular play, so you don't need to focus on them. Some, like Coming in Hot--which requires you to catch a line drive moving faster than 110 MPH--are pretty much out of your control, although it will likely happen naturally.

Now Playing: MLB The Show 22 - Breaking Down the Wal

As for the achievements that will require some work on your part, the Dynamic difficulty achievements will come over time, as long as you select the Dynamic difficulty option. With this option on, the game will slowly ramp up the difficulty to match your own skill and since the achievements are for the lower difficulties, it shouldn't be a huge deal.

The achievements that you will likely need to focus on are Big Fly Ohtani San, Base Collector, Four-bagger Express, and Double-sided Bat Flip. Big Fly Ohtani San, which requires you to hit a homerun with a starting pitcher, will require some effort since the DH means that pitchers don't normally hit in either league. Obviously, you can play as the Angels and have Ohtani on the mound and hitting as the DH. Double-sided Bat Flip will require a switch hitter in your line-up, they will need to face both a left-handed and right-handed pitcher during the game, and get a hit from both sides of the plate.

For any achievement that doesn't seem like it will come naturally, you will want to set up an exhibition match and use the difficulty sliders to increase your chances. For the inside the park homerun, you will want speedy players, use the sliders to increase your hit chances, and increase the amount of errors that the CPU makes. Ultimately, nothing in this list will require an intense amount of grinding nor an absurd amount of luck.
