Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is now available and although it has been a rather underwhelming title, we decided to make a guide for those players who own the game. Using this guide you will be able to perform hard hitting combos, learn tips and tricks, unlock some of the trophies and achievements in the game.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is now available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. The game is published by Activision and developed by Robomodo and Disruptive Games. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments section below.

Traditional Stages:

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is the first new entry in the series in a while, and also the first 3D skateboarding game in a few years, period. If you’ve picked up the game, and want to shred your way to victory, while scoring some sweet combos, the following tips and suggestions will help you to keep that combo counter up:

Each traditional stage includes plenty of collectibles that you probably want to all hunt down: these include collecting the scattered S-K-A-T-E letters, as well as hidden items like a VHS tapes, DVDs, and destructible crates. All of these must be collected if you want 100% on a stage. Each stage also needs you to complete a signature C-O-M-B-O combo with the marked letters, in one unbroken string- pulling this off can be a bit difficult, so you probably want to manual.

Secondary Missions:

Some stages may also have secondary missions. These can include a Sonic-esque challenge to run through a certain number of rings in a fixed period of time, or just pulling off assigned tricks to keep your head from exploding. You’ll want to keep an eye on the percentage corner hidden away in the corner for these latter kinds of secondary objectives- they tell you just how swollen your head has gotten.

Stars and Stat Points:

Completing missions and objectives gets your Stars (which unlock more stages) and stat points (which let you customize and level up your character). Make sure to assign stat points to the areas where your character is weak. Missions have a three-star ranking: Am, Pro and Sick, corresponding to 1, 2, and 3 stars. Ratings are not permanent, and you can always go back and retry a mission to get a higher rating later, as you practice and perfect your moves.


Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 introduces a new technique called Slam. Press the Y or Triangle button in mid-air, and you immediately slam down from mid-air to the ground. This is good for when you don’t want to continue an aerial combo. Use the slam judiciously- since it is assigned to the same button as the Grind, you can easily miscombo, and you might end up in a worse position at the end of it than you were at the beginning.
