Default Challenge Mode Difficulty

Tried to search the forum and google it, but couldnt find out if you got the Challenge Mode trophy if you changed the difficulty from how you completed your normal game.

I completed the game on Hard on my first playthrough. I then changed the game difficulty to casual and beat Lord Vorselon and got the gold trophy for beating him. I then visited the Insomniac Moon as that was the last trophy I was missing.

After the trophy popped up I looked a bit around and started the Challenge Mode from the Extras in the menu. I'm still on casual, and will post my answer as soon as I finish the playthrough, crossing my fingers

EDIT:

Well you should check out this thread now.

I just got the Glutton for Punishment trophy and my platinum. I completed challenge mode on CASUAL after completing my main game on Hard. I also BYPASED pretty much all of Clanks puzzles as well as to save time. So my challenge playthrough was no more than a little over 3 hours actually

I did however change my difficulty setting from Hard to Casual before I battled and got the gold trophy for beating Lord Vorselon. (I had already got the gold trophy for beating the game on hard of course) And went straight into Challenge mode after that, it probably works either way, but just to let you guys know.

Sorry cant help. I played through challenge mode on hard difficulty still. However, I dont see why it would matter. The trophy just says to complete a playthrough on challenge mode so seems as if you are fulfilling the requirements

Yeah I noticed too when you Go to Challange Mode Via the Extras Menu or Via the choice after Beating the Game the Difficulty settings stays whatever it was after beating the Game, but it does unlock HardCore in New Game options.

So I'm just wondering why it doesnt change it under the Options Menu, If I go all the way through the game and find out it never actually changed the difficulty im gonna be pissed(Mainly cuz the Damn Clank parts in the Great Clock are Boring As Hell)


I'm assuming though Challange Mode is In fact HardCore, the enemies do appear to take more hits b4 they die then they did on Hard. It would just appear for some reason whatever Difficulty the game was set to prior to switching to Challange mode via Extra menu or after beating stays there.

So, to sum it: After getting the hard completion trophy you can drop difficulty to casual and do the tournaments you haven't done, get Vorsilon, play challenge mode and so on?

sry im a bit simple minded, but I finished the game on Hard, started challenge mode, when I go to the in-game menu to look at the difficulty it still says Hard. Would this prevent me from getting the trophy or no? thanks!

Since it is here, I may as well use this thread to ask a couple of questions I have.

1. Is it necessary to have to buy the Omega weapons in challenge mode, or will you be able to get through alright with weapons from your first playthrough?

2. I know that you can bypass Clank’s puzzles, but what is this the drawback for doing it? Do you lose bolts or something like that?

Reload your hard plathrough and change the difficulty to easy and then start a new challenge run so the difficulty will automatically be set to easy. Don't mess with the difficulty level during challenge mode since i believe it'll block the trophy.

You don't really need any of the omega weapons but you may want to just upgrade to omega for the ones you use most often.

The only drawback for skipping the clank puzzles is that you don't get the bolt reward at the end. No big deal really.
