Platinum Trophy EASY Pinata Party Trophy! (10 Weeping Bats)

I recently had to start one last play through because I never focused on killing these guys. So of course I read all through forums looking for a quick shortcut but didn't find anything. I knew of a few Weeping Bat locations but the one that really stuck in my mind was the one that stands in the alley outside of the art gallery. Below is my discovery

So here is something you can do to get the trophy in about 15 minutes from a new game or from a save near the art gallery.

1. Start a new game (or skip to step 7.)
2. Rush through the intro / Devil's Pitstop
3. Get the ticket for the ride to the Caves
4. Kill the Weeping Bats in the caverns.
5. Ride the coaster, etc etc
6. Once you're free to explore the town run to the house that has the fire escape ladder, climb it, through the house and cross to the other side of town.
7. Run to the alley with the single Weeping Bat but don't kill him yet. You have to enter the art gallery door to let the game save first!
8. Enter the door leading to the Art Gallery paintings that you arrange on the table. The game will autosave.
9. Exit the same door, the game will autosave again, kill the Weeping Bat. It doesn't really matter that it's saving.. just kill it quickly.
10. Enter the door, wait for it to autosave.
11. Pause - Re-load this autosave.
12. Exit the door, there will be another Weeping Bat.
13. Repeat step 9.

This is how I rushed the Weeping Bat trophy in under 30 mins.

You don't have to delete your game data, the trophy is not glitched.

15-30 minutes from a new game through Dungeon 1 and to the upper part of the city?

And it is not glitched anyway. People just mistake instant kills with finishing blows.

Yes, simply rush through the beginning of the game, only stop to incap/kill Weeping Bats. I suggest playing on easy and using the red fire axe, 3 weak attacks should knock them down, then go for the kill. Run straight to the art gallery, enter, save, exit, kill, enter, save, load, exit, kill, repeat

People keep overkilling from their standing position. Gotta knock them down with weak attacks, then destroy them while they're down.

Well, 30 minutes seem okay but 15? Not on new game.

Since the intro itself is around 15mins. I sort of don't count that.

Once the bus crashes, it's about 15-30 mins. Which is really just...

•Run to the cliff, cop falls
•Devils Pitstop -> kitchen.
•Run from the void, turn the photos/maze
•Get the ticket from the game
•Enter the caves -> dynamite switch
•Ride the train and you're free to leave.

It's quick if you're in the zone

First, thank you for the tip. I used it during my hard run right now and got the trophy. Those crapbags seriously are hard in this mode.

Second, somehow even the Instant kills which are not counted as a kill in the statistics and for Good Behavior do count for such trophies. I have experienced it myself now. So it actually is weird if someone did not get the trophy. Instant kills count as incapativated only but that is also enough for these guys.

Third, intro or not, the actions themselves take more time. And there is a difference between 15 and 30 minutes. I tell you nobody will be there in 15 minutes, you underestimate how much time some ways and actions/scenes need. And all scenes after the opening count - at least for the statistics, well and of course in real life as well, even if you only "count the time you needed to get from spot a to b" there still is all the time you need to spend for everything else. Actually some part of the opening also counts. I guess it starts with with the bus scene when they are driving on the road. But even without all those scenes, 15 minutes? No. I say maybe 25 minutes. Like you said, under 30 minutes. But not 15 minutes. Except you don't even mean your last 30 minutes line about the run but only about all the Weeping Bats themselves.

Yeah you're right, there are still some cut scenes, several boarded up doors / paths you have to chop open and a few keys to collect before you make it to the actual town.

I was anxious to write this guide as soon as I discovered this method so I appologize, my judgement was off a bit.

Thats an awesome tip, I wish I could've used that tip instead of replaying the whole game.

I can confirm that this trophy is glitched!

Nice tip. Thanks.

I unfortunately missed this one on my initial run and I'm saving my no kills playthrough for last, so I had to attempt this one on Hard. They are a serious pain on Hard and a good chunk of confrontations with them include a few stray screamers, so this was a lifesaver.

Wow, this tip is awesome.

On my current playthrough, i killed ~14 and still no trophy. Unfortunately, i've already killed this weeping bat, so i guess i'll have to start a new playthrough.

Somehow i am afraid this won't work for me Do i have to delete the patch?
