Madden NFL 12 Achievements

Leon Washington Award

Return 2+ kicks for touchdowns in one game with one player (No OTP or co-op)  

Return two kickoffs for TD's in one game. Can easily be done with edited Rosters, Adjusted Sliders and on Rookie Difficulty.

You could attempt this with two controllers, however an easier way is to simply edit your team as well as the CPU Team, adjust the sliders and play on Rookie Difficulty..

First, edit your players Speed to 99, then edit the speed of each player on the CPU defense to the lowest possible. That way you can simply out run them to the end zone.

It's not Devin Hester cuz they want him to just return punts once in a while and they'd like for him to be a receiver.
I still don't have this achievement from Madden 09.

i think i'd make an all star team using Cribbs or Hester for this one

I assume 2+ means 3 td returns. Pretty lame and pointless. Sounds like a 2 contoller achievement to me.

It's not Devin Hester because Leon Washington did this last year, not Hester. Notice that theme with these?

this isnt Devin Hester because he doesnt return kicks, only punts, and it was Cribbs achievement last year

Hester does return kicks, and 2+ means 2 minimum

Washington did it last year, hence, the Leon Washington Award. You can get the achievement by returning two kicks for TDs. Problem is, I don't allow enough points to get enough chances. Ran back one with DeSean Jackson in 2 tries... it was tough.

I returned 2 in one game with Tramon Williams. I don't have the achievement yet. Does it have to be from the kick after they score, or punts, or what?

Comment #16 by iceman87gt
Thursday, September 01, 2011 @ 12:22:29 AM

It has to be on kickoffs, punt returns don't count towards the achievement

Maybe I just suck at Madden, but this achievement is ridiculous. Even on rookie, the other team swarms on you during KO and Punts. If you wanna make it ridiculously easy, go in a team's roster and edit a bunch of the fast players on kickoffs speed and acceleration to zero, then in-game go to settings and put minimum speed threshold or whatever its called to zero. You might only need to put the minimum speed threshold to zero, I would try that first because it's a pain editing a ton of guys stats.

Did This with Patrick Cobb of Green Bay, I also returned a punt with him in the same game.

Comment #23 by V3T Hunter
Thursday, September 08, 2011 @ 11:38:38 AM

I got this on the first try by turning speed threshold to 0 then turning everyone on my teams speed to 99 then I put kickoff power to 0 and got the achievement with Champas.

Comment #24 by V3T Hunter
Thursday, September 08, 2011 @ 11:42:00 AM

Oh yeah and I also edited the players on the other team and gave them a speed rating of 10 which let me run by them easier.

If you want to do it the easy way just edit the players on the team you are playing so that all the players speed is at 0. It will take you awhile but if you are having a hard time doing it. It might be worth it to you. I did it with Jacoby Ford of the Raiders on All-Pro. Don't freak out if after the 2nd TD the achievement don't pop. Mine didn't pop until the game was over.

Thursday, September 22, 2011 @ 12:35:25 PM

most the achievements are simple if u just put it on rookie which sounds lame but oh well lol its not as bad as ive heard people turning down sliders and what not. but this one id def use anyone with 99 speed and dance in the endzone waiting for a whole to open.

You can go into rosters and adjust your abilities to have full speed and full break tackle. I got this on my first try.

I got this achievement in Superstar Mode playing as Patrick Peterson, even though I wasn't on kick returner.

Finally got this last night as Desean Jackson of Philadelphia playing against Arizona. I edited all the players on Arizona's kick coverage team to have 0 ratings in speed, tackling, awareness, accelleration, and strength. Was stupid easy after doing that.

WTF.. Thats no kind of achievement!!! Whats the point of editing the abilities of opposing cpu players. My advice is to put in the work and get some skills so you can have pride in your achievements .

Comment #42 by Darabos

Same as #39, playing superstar mode my player was QB and supersimed up to only my players time on the field, two kicks got returned from my team during the sim. It popped before the game ended.

When it says "2+," do you need to return 2 kickoffs or 3 to get the achievement? PLEASE REPLY

Comment #47 by linktriforce007
Saturday, July 28, 2012 @ 11:43:32 PM

I was attempting to do this with Leon Washington. I returned the opening kickoff with him. Then the other team stopped kicking to him. So I ended up getting this achievement with Justin Forsett
