LEGO The Hobbit Achievements

Team Building

Use every Dwarf from Thorin's Company in a Buddy-Up attack  

To unlock this achievement, you are required to Buddy-Up with all 13 dwarves in Thorin’s Company. 

First, set your character as Bilbo and then press  to switch to the other character. This is the character you are going to be changing. Select the first dwarf, Balin, walk up to Bilbo and press  to join together. While linked, press  to attack and defeat an enemy. They must completely break apart and the dwarf character must have defeated the enemy for it to have counted. Press  again to cancel the link up then hold  to select another character.

Suggest you open a word document for a check sheet and check off all of the ones you have done.

NOTE: You can go for this achievement after completing the level Chapter 3, "Azog the Deflier" which in case you should farm it here in Free Play mode or try Chapter 10,"Flies and Spiders" - "The Elves of Mirkwood", if Chapter 3 isn't working. You should also get the achievement "Bro's before Gold." Also BE SURE to use Thorin + Thorin! It is suggested you use the normal versions of these dwarves, not use the ‘Young’ or ‘Lake-town’ versions of them.

Thorin's Company List:

  • Balin
  • Bifur
  • Bofur
  • Bombur
  • Dori
  • Dwalin
  • Fili
  • Gloin
  • Kili
  • Nori
  • Oin
  • Ori
  • Thorin (team him up with himself)

You can use it if you found the Red Brick for Regenerating Hearts if you do the quest in Hobbiton for it. It will cost 100,000 studs. It will help because it gets annoying from dying all the time and trying to do every single character with the other character. Sometimes when you try to get the kill with your buddy the target will fly across the room and hit a wall, this DOES NOT COUNT towards the achievement.

I managed to get this achievement on Level 3: Azog the Defiler (2nd part on Freeplay). If you have the Invincible Red Brick then it makes it a whole lot easier. In order to get a Buddy-Up attack/kill the Dwarfs have to be on top of each other once buddied up - not standing hand in hand.

Have the 1st character as Balin and then the 2nd character as Balin. Make sure to keep using the 2nd character once buddied up to kill the Orcs. Once you have killed one of the Orcs then select the next Dwarf via the 2nd character. Buddy up (make sure on top of each other) then kill and keep changing the 2nd character to the next Dwarf - finishing on Thorin.

Just got this. I think the issue is that the enemy has to die immediately, and not get knocked away. STRONGLY suggest enabling Character Studs red brick. If they get knocked away, they only drop loot. If you directly kill them, they'll drop studs. Use that to determine if you've actually made a buddy-up kill.

I just did this and the at least a couple enemies didn't drop studs when I killed them as they were knocked away, but got the achievement anyhow using Thorin with each dwarf. I did stack them with a dwarf on top instead of side by side.

It also appears that it cannot be done in Co-op. Achievement didn't pop until after I turned off the 2nd controller and did it alone
