Heavy Rain Trophies
The Bear - Take the best route on the highway

This is a difficult trophy if you don't know the route and because little things can mess you up. Fortunately, FiftyQuid (all credit goes to him for putting this together) has compiled a list of EXACTLY what you need to do to. This has been tested by him and by me and is verified. As long as you follow this list, you'll be ok. You can pause the game after each selection to make sure you know what's coming next. Also, make sure that your controller is perfectly flat and not tilted at all. If it's tilted and not completely flat and facing your TV, then some of the tilt sections may not register (thanks to GorgeousDre for the tip).

Note: The list below is for this sequence on the hardest difficulty.

Replay Chapter: The Bear

- Left

- Tilt right

- Right

- Left (Your car will get hit here. Don't worry about it.)

- Tilt left

- Tilt right

- Tilt left/right repeatedly. (This is the part where your car is fishtailing and you need to get it in a straight line again)

- GPS will say "You still have 4 miles to go until you reach your destination.

- Tilt left

- Cut scene of some guy changing his tires

- Tilt right

- Left at the barrier

- R2

- Tilt right

- Tilt left

- Tilt right

- Tilt left

- GPS will say "You still have 3 miles until you reach your destination"

- Quick cut scene of hubcap flying off a car

- L2

- Right

- GPS will say "You still have 2 miles until you reach your destination"

- Right

- Tilt left

- Cut scene of toll booths

- Right

- Cut scene of cop cars making a u-turn to chase you

- Tilt left THEN Tilt right or Tilt right THEN Tilt left to avoid the police cars chasing you. (This one is causing a lot of people grief. It is tricky, but only because the QTE is being misunderstood. A lot of people say your controller must be absolutely flat. This is true. However, some people are saying they got it by going right, some swear they got it by going left. What these people don't realize is that they did both. The trick is to do BOTH. The QTEs displayed are not a choice. You don't choose one or the other, they are both there because you are supposed to choose BOTH. Basically you want to slowly 'wiggle' your car side to side. My recommendation? The camera will go to the in-car view, then the QTE events x2 will appear. SLOWLY tilt right, then left. The camera should cut to the outside and your car will swerve away from the police car without bumping fenders. If you get hit you need to start again. DO NOT get hit by the police car. If you do, the trophy will not pop).

- R2

- Tilt right

- Left or Right (Barricade of police cars. It doesn't matter which direction you choose).

- Quick cut scene of a cop shooting out your tire. Be ready! The next set of QTEs come very quickly. Everything past here is just a bonus. It is not necessary for the trophy.

- L2

- Tilt right

- Tilt left

- L2

- Tilt left

I highly recommend using the PlayStation Move for this trophy. After at least 10 attempts with SIXAXIS, I tried PS Move and got Kamikaze on the first try.

Friday, July 15, 2011 @ 06:30:17 AM

This one is essential and is incorrectly stated in the Trophy Guide! Tested it several times

* Right(dodge cop car PITT manouver)

The guide says to do both, but you DO NOT need to do both. Just tilt right!

When I played and just tilted right I still got it. what seemed to work best was to just move the controller back and forth in preparation for the action. It worked on the first try. :)

It's definitely a LOT easier with the move! If you're having trouble with this, try using the move. If you don't have a move, see if you can borrow one from a friend or something. It will save you a LOT of trouble! = )

i have no problem with the controller in this scene, tilting is really simple..or at least to me.

i noticed the problem with the evading cop part is the angle.
i got it right the first time tilting right.
the problem is that people get confused when the camera changes, since the car is seen from the front people(my cousin) tilt left and away from the carm when actually they are doing ethan's left and slamming the cop.
its kind of like when the car flips and the arrow up is actually shown pointing downwards.

Got it first try, the trick is to pause a lot, then memorize the next 3 or 4 moves.

For the police part you "HAVE" to "TILT RIGHT" this is the only part that jerking the controller in the direction it shows won't work, just hold the controller as flat/straight that you can and tilt it to the right. Did this three time and "IT" works.

use this (the description) it is a lot easier but you still have to be on hard for it to work; pause between the instructions to make it easier

This is probably blindingly obvious, but I'll pust just because of the way I play the game I only found out by chance. If you're like me and just play through the chapters as they happen then you'll have to re-do the whole chapter every time. If you quit to main menu then continue game as soon as you make a mistake it takes you back to the moment he drives onto the highway.

its annoying. i was doing this on easy, didnt hit anything, and... trophy didnt pop-up (yes, i have wait to load next scene) i was trying to did this on hard with move, and... sometimes camera dont see my movment :/ do i must stnad or what?

 Comment #24 by Xprimentyl
Thursday, June 14, 2012 @ 07:22:42 PM

Can personally vouche, everything in the guide is correct EXCEPT the cop bit; I got it by SLOWLY tilting RIGHT; there's no way to do both right and left. Another tip, I played with my elbows on my knees and the controller neutral in front of my chin about 10-inches (like holding a plate out for seconds; for the TILTing bits (except for the cop bit,) I would use my right or left hand to quickly pivot the sixaxis 90-degrees vertically, letting go of the sixaxis with the off-hand, until the on-screen prompts accepted the motion.

 Comment #25 by Komentra
Monday, June 18, 2012 @ 12:13:51 AM

Got it my first try. Make sure to put the difficulty on the most difficult setting because the guide is giving you the instructions for that difficulty. Also, like others have said when evading the police just tilt right, not both. I just titled right and got the trophy.

Keep your controller flat, pause often, then memorize the next few steps and it's easy.

I pulled this game out of the cupboard recently to finally get Platinum, after finishing it 2 years ago with 50% of the trophies completed. Still a great game however, watching the credits over and over to get all the endings became rather boring! You should be able to skip to the menu once the credits start to roll.

I agree with everyone suggesting to only tilt right at the police car scene, the instructions on screen are the same as all the others - choose to tilt one way or the other. If you had to wobble it both ways it would have the same instructions as earlier (to straighten up the car). A firm tilt to the right when instructed will do it.

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 @ 01:48:13 PM

Worst and most unnecessary trophy on the game. I had to shake my joystick all the time to earn this trophy, but the conclusion was exactly the same. I hate this trophy, not as much as "Perfect Crime", but I got them for the 100%.

 Comment #30 by ALaish
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 11:11:24 AM

I've just wanted to confirm the guide for this trophy.

I've managed to pull it off in my first try. The part that everyone is concerned about (evading police cars) is very easy to do with wirelles DS3 controller - as said in official trophy guide - you HAVE to just little bit tilt the controller on one and then quickly on other side - so on BOTH sides - and car will swirl left and right but not hit the barricade.

 Comment #32 by Bruno1986BR
Thursday, October 04, 2012 @ 12:31:56 PM

Boring. To earn this trophy (and with it the Platinum) I didn't stop shaking and turning the joystick to left and right. And, of course, I pressed all right buttons. No secret. But this trophy is the worst and most unnecessary. Anyway, the game is a RELIC!

It was also my last standard Trophy, so the delicious Platinum popped up just after :)

Almost giving up on this one.

 Comment #35 by LaserSanchez
Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 11:44:47 PM

Followed #32's advice. Just started shaking the controller violently during the "turn the controller" bits. As long as I kept the controller steady before I needed to tilt it, it always worked. The tricky part immediately after the toll booth where you evade hitting the cop on your side was done by this method too. Just wait until the camera cuts to inside your car, then just start shaking it violently. By violently shaking it, I mean I would pull up on one side of the controller, and pull down the other side, and alternating very quickly. It looked stupid, but it reliably worked. I only wish I didn't waste an hour or two before I found this solution.

 Comment #36 by angel78556
Tuesday, January 08, 2013 @ 06:45:26 PM

I finally did it, two things: hold the controller like a steering wheel, turn 90 degrees, not jerkily, but as if you were making a swift movement with a real car. If youve driven before, you can feel it as you practice. now the dreaded cop car part. hold the controller like i said as a steering wheel, when it comes, you must turn it 90 degrees to the right, but you must make the motion slowly, i know its been said, but i never knew how slowly. the motion should be no more and no less than one second. If you say in normal speaking tone "one one thousand while making the 90 degree turn before hand, youll get a feel for it. after i practiced that before i tried the cop sequence, i found it worked. I then tried it again just to be sure, and it worked. I hope this helps.

#17's YouTube link made this a walk in the park, got it on my 2nd try, the first time I wasn't really using the video like I should have, but I got my act together and breezed through it on the second try.

Friday, April 05, 2013 @ 11:35:52 AM

Got this trophy after the 4th try, it's really a pain in the ass but ass the guide says when you get at the policecars just tilt your controller à little bit in both directions starting with tilting it to the left.

 Comment #41 by Guillaume71
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 @ 12:04:46 PM

Whomever said that they completed this one on the FIRST try is honestly lying! No way and second of all some of the information is wrong in the help sections. It would be better if there would be some actual indication on if these LEFT or RIGHT commands are with the analog stick or the six axis itself.. It seems pretty obvious if you see a tilting pad on the screen which way to go but when you have two options on the analog stick, some of the desired routes may not be that clear.. So again, the guys that say they really did this first time without fault? HA! I'm trying to break it down by scene queues like " when car spins out" etc.. I agree this should have been a gold bear trophy not a bronze one.. Grrrrr. It's basically trial and error.. And some of the videos are so grainy that you

 Comment #42 by Paradigmatica
Wednesday, April 17, 2013 @ 10:47:42 AM

Not sure if this helps but I think you have to do the QTEs correctly also when he is in the car. I completed it first 100% but failed a QTE in the car then I did it again without fail in car and got the trophy.

Play it on easy.

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 @ 09:24:49 AM

Finally got the trophy, follow the guide exactly except for when exiting toll booths tilt right to avoid police car.

If you fail any of the QTE'S, restart this will save you from replaying the first part of the chapter.

 Comment #45 by biggen5963
Sunday, April 28, 2013 @ 11:09:29 AM

Got Kamikaze on my second try, second playthrough using Sixaxis and on hard difficulty. I can confirm that you only need to TILT RIGHT at the police car section. Just follow the rest of the moves and you'll get it.

One thing I keep noticing about these trophies. They don't seem to pop until you exit and then enter another complete chapter. This happened to me on about 5 trophies so far including Baby Master and Kamikaze. This can be really frustrating after you think you did everything perfect and no pop until the next chapter starts.

It makes me wonder if the trophies are tied directly to the bonus content and they don't pop until you are awarded that content, which only happens when you start the next chapter.

only tricky part is the police car gotta slowly tilt right if do too fast its still ram into the car, also if play on hard at the very last bit u gotta tilt one last time after the L2 L1 somthing so could be tricky too

 Comment #52 by nithinjohny
Wednesday, July 17, 2013 @ 06:37:29 AM

this one is bit frustrating. What i did was i just noted down the required directions on a piece of paper and paste it on my screen side. I just remember 3-4 prompts, do it accordingly pause the games, remembers the next set and so on.. The tilt is bit tricky, you got to tilt it almost 90 degree (not too slow and not too fast !!). Another funny thing some of the prompts might change when you retry ! especially the circle and square. So you need to be prepared for it. The direction prompts will remain the same. Be patient, it will come after few retries. Well, I had to do it some 20 times :)

Saturday, July 20, 2013 @ 08:19:37 PM

It is 100% true that this trophy is easier to get with the move controllers, it took me 10 tries with a normal control to do and took me 2 tries with the move controls, thank you comment #1 for the help!

 Comment #54 by Nero Noctell
Saturday, August 10, 2013 @ 07:20:22 PM

Awesome Guide it works. I don't notice the 2x Sixaxis movements to dodge to police Pit maneuver But I never had a problem doing it. Thanks though for the guide it helped a lot.

 Comment #55 by Eternal21
Sunday, September 15, 2013 @ 11:26:18 PM

I'm glad I read the comments first. As many people mentioned, the part about 1st cop car is wrong. The guide says you have to tilt right and left during that scene, but that's plain wrong. You just need to slowly tilt to the right, so that your car moves away - the two static circles give you a choice, just like they do in every other section before. Worked for me on both easy and hard difficulties.

 Comment #56 by Eternal21
Sunday, September 15, 2013 @ 11:27:47 PM

BTW - the best thing to do, is finish the whole game and leave this for last, so you can use auto-save function to just keep restarting if you mess up. I also changed my difficulty to hard, so the buttons/moves would line up with the guide. That way I just had to pause every couple moves, memorize, and move on.

 Comment #59 by TheBiggestLoser
Tuesday, December 31, 2013 @ 06:45:39 AM

I tried and failed with the move and sixaxis a dozen times. I eventually (and accidentally) did it on a speed run of Perfect Crime. The trick I used during the bumper scene was already having the sixaxis facing 45 degrees to the left, wait for the indicators to come up, then turn it right. I hope this helps those attempting the trophy.

 Comment #60 by Pavelas
Tuesday, February 11, 2014 @ 05:50:04 PM

Made it on "easy", when You have option - always choose right, only for 3rd time choose left. The trophy poped very late at loading screen, got me nervous a little. :)

 Comment #64 by AndrejS
Saturday, May 24, 2014 @ 09:29:34 PM

I have problem with police car action.

few tips

- if you have save enabled then when you make mistake quit to main maenu and continue, when you do this you dont have to play all the way from chapter begining. Few times i start at the bridge before you go to action sequence, after few try game save at new spot right befor you see table wrong way. So i play from this spot on

- after i try for almost 20 times i almost give up, have always hit the police car so i try loking for some game tips on other forums.

- found this tip and it worked first time I try it. At police car chase dont move, wait that the timer on right is little more then half full, at that momet tilt slow right and you have perfect police car sequence

- after that just do anything else as described above

Sunday, June 15, 2014 @ 11:45:16 AM

I found this the toughest trophy in the way to my platinum, moving right WILL get u the trophy at the end, it isn't whether or not u slowly move the control pad or quickly move it right, u have to time it perfectly with when the cop car turns into u... As long as u follow the guide above and time that perfectly to miss the cop car... Trophy will pop!

Saturday, January 31, 2015 @ 03:26:51 PM

You should definitely hit right when the police chase you after the barrier you don't get hit at all then and it must be stated tat depending on your control settings R2 was circle and x in my QTE game.

 Comment #70 by MaxellAK47
Saturday, March 28, 2015 @ 01:50:31 PM

Fucking bullshit this guide! There are squares and crosses instead of R2 and L2 (don't remember wich one is witch) AND when cop cars start chasing you, you have to tilt RIGHT, not left then wright or what so ever.

 Comment #71 by almeraN15
Sunday, September 20, 2015 @ 05:30:21 PM

Fifth go and I got it!!
It is crucial to get the SLOW RIGHT TILT, THEN IMMEDIATELY a left tilt to avoid the chasing cops P.I.T maneuver.
Along with that follow the instructions given and you will succeed easily!!

@70: Clearly you have the controls of the game set on an easier level, so before you shout your ignorant mouth off again, bring up the difficulty setting and choose "I PLAY VIDEO GAMES VERY OFTEN. I AM PERFECTLY FAMILIAR WITH THE WIRELESS CONTROLLER", and try again.
Fucking noobs...
