If you've bought they game, then congrats, you own a bloody scary game and are probably brave enough to play it!
- Full Arsenal
- Maxed Out
- Full Contact
- A Cut Above
- Tool Time
- Live With The Hot Ones
- Story Teller
- Legend Teller
These trophies aren't that hard to get, you'll probably get them on your course throughout the game. My tip though for beating enemies is to shoot one of their legs out first, then go for the arms. Works every time!
- Don't Get Cocky, Kid
I found these two trophies the hardest to get, this was due to the fact that I didn't know that you have two cannons to fire from! In Don't get cocky kid concentrate on getting the small asteroids first with one first from one of your cannons. If any of the bigger asteroids come your way, make sure to use burst fire from both your cannons at the same time and it should obliterate them. If you manage to dip below 50% health just let the asteroids pummel the ship and restart the mini game.
For the slugger trophy, if the boss gets anything in its' tenticles make sure you shoot them first as the explosive barrels do a lot of damage. To start off with concentrate your fire on one appendage first then work your way around the boss, this is the easier of the two to get so theres no excuse guys!
- Brute Force
- Get Off My Ship
- Mindless Prey
Again you'll get these trophies through the course of the game but I'll explain a few tactics anyway. For the brute force, make sure to stasis him as soon as he runs towards you. Then go around behind hm, and go to work on the legs. Rinse and repeat and he'll soon be crushed.
I had a bit of trouble with the second boss as he's so frickin annoying sometimes but he only has a few attacks so just learning how to avoid them is easy enough. As one of the tenticles come out, move around to the side and when he slams down with the tenticle zero g jump to the side of it as it will swing around most of the area. It only takes a few shots for each tenticle so after the zero g jump give him a lead sandwich and continue to the other tenticles. When he opens his mouth, get the contact beam out and avoid the 4 or 5 pods he spits out, shot him right in the middle, and after a few thats him gone!
The slugger boss is easy enough, and i've pretty much just explained that.
The last boss is disappointingly easy but for those that struggle, just keep on moving to the side as he swings the tenticles down then fire away at the yellow targets. Just rinse and reapeat really, simple stuff.
- Pack Rat
- Playing Catch
- Kickin It
- Air Alert
- Ragdoll Check
- Big Spender
Easy stuff these trophies. Pack rat should be done during the course of the game at any time, mostly if you want to save ammo or store weapons and health packs for harder parts of the game.
Z-Baller is in chapter 10 or 11 I think. You'll know when you come across it. When you defeat the enemies in the room start the game and throw the basketball using kinesis into the holes. If you stand on the platforms further back when doing this, you will get more points.
Collecting schematics for the merchant trophy will be done during the course of the game. You'll see really bright flashing objects on the floor in some areas, just make sure to pick these up.
For armstrong, just fire random objects at enemies, they'll do some damage but not as much as your weapons. You might get this trophy during Z-Basketball but I think it is 50 different objects.
The easiest way to do the Playing catch trophy is when fighting the brute. Stasis him then shoot a leg off. Run away from him and he will stop. He'll get ready then spit a pod out of his mouth. Catch the po with kinesis then fire it back at him. This is also a great way to save ammunition.
For Kickin it, find the tiny enemies which sprout 3 tenticles, run after them and stop about a metre away. Let them grap on to you and just keep mashing the button it tells you to mash and you should kick the creepy thing away. Repeat 9 more times!
Im going to combine the Freeze and Brawler trophies together. Stasis a normal enemy then just go up to it and waack the crap out of it. Stamping on them dishes out a lot more damage, just remember to stasis first,
Crackshot is a great trophy to get because in the course of doing so you get great items. In chapter 8 or 9 you'll see a shooting gallery, get out the plasma cutter or the pulse rifle and just keep your aim down the middle. Don't worry about reloading or anything as it gives you infinate ammo.
For Air Alert find a zero-g area and jump small distances over a over again, you should get this.
Ragdoll Check is another easy one, use the force gun in the room with all the missing gravity panels and you should havethis trophy in no time.
For Big spendor, amke sure you buy all the upgrades for your armour and a crap load of power nodes, this will ensure you getting this trophy.
Don't worry if you have to do a new game plus to upgrade your weapons because you'll get 10 power nodes for completing the game and 50,000 to spend, so buy power nodes galore.
Second Run Through
- Epic Tier Three Engineer
- One Gun
- Theres Always Peng
Just run through the game on impossible difficulty using only the plasma cutter. It may seem hard but the way to do this is to not buy any other weapon at all. This will meanthat enemies will mostly drop only plasma cutter ammo. If you find any other kind of ammo then all you need to do is just sell it on for power nodes to upgrade the plasma cutter and your armour.
For getting the peng treasure, you'll find it during chapter 11 where you first get on board the ship. It is between the two docking bays and you'll need to use kinesis to get it. Heres a link to make it easier to find it.
Good stuff, after all that you should unlock the platinum after defeating the hive mind at the end of impossible difficulty! Bravo, welcome to the ranks of the platinum collectors!

Good guide N.M.R. All i need to get for platnium is the impossible mode trophy. I'm on chapter 3 and finding it really hard. I only have the plasma cutter at the moment but want to get the force gun as its good for multiple enemies who are up close to you.
