Grounded – How to Obtain From Downtown Achievement

A step-by-step guide to easily get the achievement “From Downtown”.

From Downtown Achievement Guide


There are three things we’ll need to have. First, we gather the required materials for the hoop, the location we are going to do it, and the pebbles to throw in the hoop for the achievement.

Step 1: Materials

Prepare the materials to build the basketball hoop. You’ll need:

  • 2 Web Fibers: you get it by chopping spider webs.
  • 2 Grass Planks: you can get this later on the location that we’ll build the hoop. I will tell you in the next step.
  • Weed Stem: you can get this from chopping dandelion plants. You should also get this later at the location.
  • 5 Clay: you can get this from clay blocks lying around most puddles, and using the shovel on it.

PS. If you already have the hoop, try to relocate it to where I guide you to in the next step: The Location.

Step 2: The Location

Now, you’ll need to go to this location, on the middle-right of the map where lot of rubbles and some wood and be seen on the map.

Try to find a bunch of big rocks that are laying around. This is the our key location.

Now, build the hoop at the stone near the one that has another stone on top. Like this.

If you need to cut down the dandelion, make sure to leave the taller (the one on the left) alone, we will need it later.

PS. Make sure you also got some dandelion glider, because you might need it later on the next step.

Try to align the hoop side to the side of the thistle plant on another side. Like this

Now, you are ready to continue to the next step.

Step 3: The Climb

Before you do this, make sure you nailed the previous steps, and have some pebbles in your backpack.

Now, you’re going to climb on that thistle tree. Yup, the one on the other side of the hoop.

This can be done easily by jumping from one leaf to another. Don’t be afraid of the spikes!

Start from the lowest leaf, then keep going on the next upper leaf.

Don’t forget your glider in case you fall.

Once you’re on the highest leaf, crouch to the tip of the leaf, jump to the nearest flower pad, then jump to the top of the flower.

Now, you should be in the place where you try your luck!

Final Step: The Throw

Now, this may seems like the hardest part. But it should be the easiest part or our work that we have done for would be in vain…

Now, aim for the dandelion on top of the hoop, similar to what I did in the picture. Use it as the reference point

Huck your pebble, and check the result.

If you didn’t score yet, adjust the direction a little bit from your last throw.

And there you go!
