Tennis in the Face is a fun little game where you play as fallen tennis hero Pete Pagassi, battling to save the city from a dangerous energy drink which ruined his career while obsessing about clowns, hipsters and nerds alike. You will also be battling resistance from these parties, police and employees of the energy drink company with the help of just his tennis racket and a lot of balls.

Now this could be a really tough 100% if you were required to get crowns on every level but fortunately this isn't required, neither is finishing the game. This makes the 100% a lot easier and quicker than it could be. However you will need to nearly finish it to access all of the best levels for the trophies.

One little hint, you press to restart a level. Enjoy the game!

Step 1 - Nearly finishing the game
As I stated in the introduction, you don’t actually need to finish every level for the 100%. At the minimum, to have access to all the levels stated in the guide, you need to reach the bottom left level of the final area to get the 100 Bounces trophy. Some trophies will probably pop naturally; don't worry if you don’t get some as they can easily be cleaned up.

Step 2 - Clean Up
Now all you need to do is clean up the remaining trophies, see the Guide for the best locations of any trophies you may be missing. Also complete the credits level for 10tons defeater and finally AFK (away from keyboard) for an hour or so on the main menu for Main Menu Enthusiast. You should have 100%, congrats!

12 trophies ( 7  )

  • In a level with at least three enemies, knock everyone out with the first serve.

    This will probably be the first trophy you get in the game. The level to the right of the very first one will easily get you it. If you aim for the lowest clown's head, the ball should easily bounce and kill each clown. If you somehow need further guidance, check this video:

  • Knock out 5 enemies before the fourth bounce.

    You'll probably get this naturally, but the first place you can get it (as far as I know) is on the left most level on the second from top row in the first area. If you hit the two clowns on the platform in the middle correctly, the ball should bounce back and hit the two clowns in the bottom left corner, while a clown will fly and hit the one in the bottom right. You don't need to hit all the enemies with the ball for this to count. See this video for guidance:

  • Earn at least one extra ball from every level in the first district.

    This one is pretty easy, all you need is to have at least one ball left when you finish each level in the first area of the game. This includes balls in your hands, not just ones denoted at the bottom left of the screen. The only one I had to replay more than once after initially finishing the level was the rightmost one on the second top row, but it's not too challenging. After this, you don't need to worry about how many balls you have left at the end of each level. You'll get this after the last level you complete with a ball or more left.

  • 25k


    Score 25,000 points with a single serve.

    This is another one you should get along the way without really trying much. It may seem a lot at first but some levels have quite a lot of enemies which you can get with your first serve. There's actually a very good opportunity to get it near the start of the game, see Tennis in the Face for more details.

  • Get five headshots with a single serve.

    You might get this randomly, you might have to try specifically for this one. As mentioned before, there’s actually a very good opportunity to get it near the start of the game. In the rightmost level on the second row of the first area, if you're lucky you can get this and five headshots in one go. See the below video for reference (I get both trophies at the same time):

  • Serve a ball that bounces 100 times.

    The best and perhaps only place to get this is in the final area, the bottom left square. You’ll have to get the ball through a narrow gap to set off Explodz cans to complete the level most effectively. Once you've done this (but not yet finished the level), shoot a ball in the exact same place, you should easily get over 100 bounces. Thanks to djhmetfan1 for pointing this location out. See this video for further reference:

  • Knock out six opponents with a single Explodz explosion.

    The best, and again maybe the only place to get this is in the top right level of the final area. Hit the glass directly above your head, then hit the revealed slope to destroy the glass at the top. Hit the slope one more time to knock the junk ball off, triggering an explosion that will knock out all 6 people around it. Here's a video demonstrating this method, made by Omega Deez so credit to him:

  • Destroy 10 pieces of glass during one level.

    The best way I found to do this is on the top right level of the fifth area. Blowing up the Explodz can in front of you will take care of 8, then simply aim at the two overlapping pieces of glass above you and use your remaining balls to get them both. Here's a video demonstrating this:

  • Earn 1,000,000 points in the main menu.

    This trophy is a bit pointless as you'll have to idle for it because, unless I'm missing something, there's no way to control the main menu 'game'. 1 million points is a lot considering how few points you get each serve (which is automatic), so be prepared to leave your PS4 on this screen for over an hour. Don't worry if you accidentally go into the city map, your score will remain when you go back into the main menu. Play something on another console, pop out for a bit, do whatever you want to do and return later to see if your trophy has popped.

  • Destroy three vending machines with a ball and a single serve.

    I got this one on the top right level of the 5th area. What I did was hit the the guy in front in the face, then the ball bounced around everywhere and weakened some of the vending machines. This isn't necessary but is a help so don't worry if it doesn't bounce in the same way, as long as you don't destroy one completely. I then hit another ball completely straight, and it bounced back and forth destroying 3 machines. See this video for further reference:

  • Defeat the 10tons crew.

    This may be the most annoying trophy in the game. First off, to access this level you have to click on the credits, found in the penultimate area. You have 8 balls to KO as many enemies, so you have to be really precise, one bad ball and you have to start again. Instead of explaining where to hit, I’ll just link a video to show you visually instead. It may take you quite a few tries to get it perfect still. Credit goes to Shaun Davies:

  • Collect three briefcases with a single serve.

    This one may take a bit of luck. Briefcases appear with the office workers in the fifth district. I did this on the level with the green line underneath on the top row of the fifth district. First you have to KO the office workers, and then hit the briefcases they drop afterwards. It's difficult to explain how to make the shot like I did it, so here's a video instead but you may have to be a bit precise to copy me exactly. If you can't get my way to work, try fiddling around a bit and you might get it a different way on the same level.
