Introduction:

Welcome to Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, the latest fighting game in the Power Rangers franchise! Developed by nWay and published by Lionsgate Games in cooperation with Hasbro, it is a celebration of the franchise's 25th anniversary featuring characters from various series, such as S.P.D., Mystic Force, Lost Galaxy, Super Megaforce and the series that started it all, the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (both the original TV series and the Boom! Comics series).

Created as a game that is easy to pick up and learn but hard to master, the gameplay in this title is a mix between games like SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Making this an easily accessible fighting game for those that want to get into the genre.

NOTE: Version 1.02 information

A new version of the game, known simply as version 1.02, was released on April 30, 2019. This version of the game adds a new story mode to the game and three new characters (Dragon Armor Trini, Udonna, and Cenozoic Blue Ranger) for free, along with balance changes.

While the conditions for unlocking each trophy remain the same, using the three new characters added in the update will help with leveling up your player level since they count towards the Morphenomenal trophy but keep in mind that whilst no new trophies were added for completing arcade again with each of the three new characters, they will also count towards the Hero's Journey and The Story Unfolds trophies.

Walkthrough:

Step 1: Finish Arcade Mode with all characters

In this step, you will need to complete arcade mode with all nine characters featured in the base game. Each of the game's characters have their own unique playstyles and abilities that are described in each character's respective trophies. There is also a method you can use to your advantage to make each arcade run faster, but keep in mind that the character you have selected first when forming your team is the character whose trophy you will unlock at the end of your playthrough.

Upon completing this step, you will unlock the following trophies:

Hero's Journey
The Story Unfolds
Power Ranger Veteran
Megaforce, All Together
Forever Red
A Change of Hart
Destined for Greatness
Only the Strong
Destroyer of Worlds
Cat Got Your tongue?
Mastodon-One


Step 2: Ranked Matches

With Arcade Mode out of the way, you will now find yourself doing a grind that's proven to be as long as the one from Dead or Alive 5, where you will need to play a total of 1000 ranked matches to unlock trophies. Additionally, there is another trophy you can also go for when aiming for the 1000 you need, and that trophy is for winning 500 ranked matches.

Upon completing this step, you will unlock the following trophies:

Protectors of Right
Defenders Sworn to Fight
Defend What's Right Forever
Protect This World Together
Powered Up For More
Rangers at the Core
We Stand Together
Rangers Forever
Fired Up For More
Even Up the Score
Stronger than Before
Go Go Power Rangers!


Step 3: Reach Master League

Another trophy you will find yourself going for when going for the 1000 matches and 500 wins trophies when playing in ranked matches is going for the highest league in the game, which is the Master League. Advancing your league in ranked matches requires you to obtain medals for each match you win, and given that this one of the many long grinds in this game, you will find yourself doing this until you reach said league. Thankfully, however, you can obtain Master League before you earn a trophy for winning 100 ranked matches, which means that this grind isn't as lengthy as the grind you would face in Step 2.

Upon completing this step, you will unlock the following trophies:

Bronze
Silver
Gold
Platinum
Diamond
Elite
Master


Step 4: Attaining Player Level 700

For your final step, we are aiming to reach player level 700, which is the combined level of each character you have leveled up while playing ranked matches online, making this the second longest grind in the game next to reaching 1000 ranked matches played. The amount of EXP you will gain for each character is determined by whether you win or lose the match.

Upon completing this step, you will unlock the following trophies:

Rookie
Recruit
Ranger
Morphenomenal
Grand Master

  • Complete Arcade Mode with 5 Characters

    See The Story Unfolds, for more information.

  • Complete Arcade Mode with 9 Characters

    A staple of other traditional fighting games such as Tekken, Street Fighter, and The King of Fighters; Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid's Arcade Mode has the player fight against seven CPU opponents as they fight their way through each of them until they reach Lord Drakkon, the final boss for all characters with the exception of himself (his final boss is Tommy Oliver).

    In order to unlock this trophy, you will need to complete Arcade Mode with any 9 of the 12 playable characters in the base game. The list of such can be found below:

    • Tommy Oliver
    • Gia Moran
    • Jason Lee Scott
    • Ranger Slayer
    • Kat Manx
    • Magna Defender
    • Lord Drakkon
    • Goldar
    • Mastodon Sentry
    • Cenozoic Blue Ranger
    • Udonna
    • Dragon Armor Trini


    Each character has their own unique playstyle, all of which are described in their respective trophies. The fastest way to complete this mode and unlock their trophies is to have Goldar as either the second or third character (whichever order you have him in doesn't matter), switch to him by tapping either or twice, then press , this is a simple combo that can help deal damage against your opponent as fast as possible when done continuously, even when the combo ends. It should also be noted that while any of the three characters added in version 1.02 (Cenozoic Blue Ranger, Udonna, and Dragon Armor Trini) do not have their own respective trophies related to completing arcade mode with them, they will still count towards unlocking this trophy.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Tommy Oliver

    Originating from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers as the very first ranger who started out evil but became good, Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, is a beginner friendly character whose attacks and specials behave similarly to those from other fighting game characters, such as his standing special attack () which works like Ryu's Hadouken, but deals three hits, and his backwards special attack (+) behaves similarly to Terry Bogard's ground wave as it appears in KOF '99 to 2002.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using him as your first character to unlock his trophy, for more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Gia Moran

    Originating from Power Rangers Super Megaforce, Gia Moran, the Yellow Super Megaforce Ranger, is a keepaway and rushdown character who specializes in attacks that make use of her retractable sword. Her forward special (+) has her twirling her sword around while she spins to attack her opponent, while her backwards special has her extending her sword towards the opponent with the ability to follow up with her reaching them.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using her as your first character to unlock her trophy. For more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Jason Lee Scott

    Originating from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers as the original leader of the group, Jason Lee Scott, the first Red Ranger, has a very offensive mix of rushdown and zoning using his sword and blaster for each respective situation. His standing special acts as both a counter and lunge attack using his sword, while his jumping special ( while airborne) involves him shooting straight towards his opponent from his blaster, which is helpful if used as an anti-air.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using him as your first character to unlock his trophy, for more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Ranger Slayer

    Originating from the Boom! Comics version of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Ranger Slayer, also known as Kimberly Hart, the first Pink Ranger, has a playstyle centered on zoning and laying traps, similar to that of Yukari Takeba in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Her standing special enhances her long ranged bow attacks ( (both grounded and airborne) and +), while her forward special attack will have her jump forward above the opponent; you can follow this up with her aerial special, which lays a bomb in the air.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using her as your first character to unlock her trophy. For more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Magna Defender

    Originating from Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy, the Magna Defender has a defensive playstyle that makes use of keepaway attacks such as his gun (his standing special) and a counterattack (his backwards special), both of which can be followed up with a combo that can help deal a good amount of damage, especially when you use the latter as a starter for any combo you wish to perform as him.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using him to unlock his trophy. For more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Goldar

    Originating from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Goldar is one of Rita's minions and a major threat to the Power Rangers. He is based upon Grifforzer from Kouryu Sentai Zyuranger, which in turn was the basis for what eventually became the very first season of Power Rangers. Thanks to his fearsome damage, having him in your team will make the process of unlocking this and the other arcade mode trophies as fast as possible with the use of a simple combo.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using him as your first character to unlock his trophy For more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Lord Drakkon

    Originating from the Boom! Comics version of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Lord Drakkon is actually Tommy Oliver, who stayed with the side of evil even after Rita's curse was broken. His playstyle is completely different from Tommy's, focusing more on melee and rushdown attacks. His standing special has him spawning two projectiles from him sword, both of which work similarly to Terry Bogard's power wave; while his forward special has him rushing towards the opponent, with each attack button activating a different followup attack.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using him as your first character to unlock his trophy. For more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Kat Manx

    Originating from Power Rangers S.P.D., Kat Manx is a recurring ally of the Power Rangers who is actually not a main ranger despite bearing the name Kat Ranger. Her playstyle focuses greatly on speed and swift attacks with her punches and kicks. Her standing special is a three part combination where she uses her claws to attack the opponent, similar to Jason's forward special attack, while her backwards special is a two part attack that begins with a dodge roll and ends with a forward slash, which is similar to Jason's back special but with a different attack ender that can be followed up with a combo.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using her as your first character to unlock her trophy. For more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

  • Complete Arcade mode with Black Mastodon Sentry

    Originating from the Boom! Comics version of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, the Mastodon Sentries are soldiers hired by Lord Drakkon after he stole the Mastodon power coin. They serve him for the purpose of fending off and fighting against the Power Rangers. Like Ranger Slayer, he also has a long ranged zoning playstyle that also revolves around traps, albeit on ground this time. His standing, backward and aerial specials all involve his sniper rifle, with the standing special version firing up to at least three shots; backwards special being a good tool for anti-air; and a down special for grounded opponents.

    Simply complete Arcade mode using him as your first character to unlock his trophy. For more information on Arcade mode and for a fast way to complete it with each character, please refer to The Story Unfolds.

    This trophy will be unlocked upon completing 1,000 online matches between casual and ranked, whether you win or lose doesn't matter when going for this but I highly recommend doing this trophy in ranked match so you can unlock it alongside Protect This World Together.

    In addition to the aforementioned trophy, you should also go for Go Go Power Rangers! and Master as they should unlock naturally while playing in ranked matches. Be sure to keep in mind that casual online matches are not recommended when going for this trophy.

    You can check how many online matches you have played by going to your Profile in the game's main menu.

    (Online Multiplayer)

    In Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, your player level is the total combined level across each of the game's characters. For each time a character levels up, it will add up to your total player level. Keep in mind that this will only increase during online matches, namely ranked since there are trophies related to it.

    For instance, if you have Tommy at level 30, Gia at level 25, and Jason at level 20, this will result in your total player level being 75; playing as other characters and increasing their level will further add on to your total player level. Your character's EXP will go up, regardless if you win or lose a match but the amount of experience you gain will increase if you win the match. For a screenshot showing an example of this, please refer to the one found below.

    You can check each character's levels individually in the character select screen and alongside it, you can also view your total player level in the main menu, whenever you start a match and the match results screen. Using the three characters added to the game in version 1.02 (Cenozoic Blue Ranger, Udonna and Dragon Armor Trini) will speed up the process of unlocking this trophy.

    As with other fighting games, ranked matches have players fight against one another as they compete for a high ranking in the game's online leaderboards, as well as the highest league in the game and Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is no exception to this. Thankfully, in contrast to most other fighting games, you will not be demoted a league (the game's name for ranks) regardless of how many matches you have lost.

    Whenever you start a ranked match for the first time, you will be greeted with the opportunity to fight against eight opponents to determine what your league will be. If you win all eight matches, you will be placed in the Gold I tier, which means you will unlock the Bronze, Silver and Gold trophies at once. Whenever you win a ranked match, you will earn a medal that will help increase your league once you have collected a specific number of them while in each tier of the league you are in. The list of leagues and how many medals you need total in order to advance to the next one are listed below.

    • Bronze: 10 medals needed to advance to Silver
    • Silver: 15 medals to advance to Gold
    • Gold: 20 medals to advance to Platinum
    • Platinum through Elite: 25 medals needed in each rank to advance to Master

    In addition, for every match you win, you will also earn a point that will count towards you earning a bonus medal. Whenever you lose a match with no medals earned, you will either go down a tier in the league you are in or your bonus medal gauge will become empty. Please refer to the screenshot found in Morphenomenal for an idea of what the bonus medal gauge looks like. You can see your current league whenever you go to the main menu or your Profile.
