inFamous 2

inFamous 2 Trophies
Just One More
Pick up all the blast shards scattered around New Marais.

Remember the frustration with blast shards that was inFamous 1? Remember mashing the heck outta that button to find those last few shards running across every street and nook? Fortunately, you won't have to worry about that anymore.

Although you'll still technically still be running around the city mashing looking for the 305 blast shards, you now have the option to purchase the Blast Shard Sense ability, purchasable after doing all 60 side missions. This ability will not only show you where the blast shards are, but it will lead you to it no matter how far away you are from it. Thanks to the addition of this ability, no longer will you have to use a map to keep track of your blast shards progress.

Collect all 305 shards scattered across New Marais, and the trophy will pop. To save yourself some time, make a habit of using during the course of your game to nab any shards that be in your area. Not only will this increase the amount of times you can use your electric super powers, but it will also save you the hassle of leaving this task end game.

Note that blast shards earned from defusing bombs or chasing down the thief will not towards you total.

**There is now a super fast way to get all the blast shards!**

Wonder if this will be annoying. At least it's a gold!

I didn't find all the shards in the first game and I doubt I'll do it this time either.

Sweet I loved Rockhound in the first one. Glad this time its a gold one,I thought it was BS that the 50% shards found was bronze instead of silver,and the found all 350 shards/100% was bronze instead of Gold. Glad they fixed this problem.

not again... Still haven't found the 350th shard in inFAMOUS 1. *shudder*

Got this earlier, got 300/305 on my own, then once you complete 60 side missions, you can ping the map and it will show you the closest shard on your mini map. Makes this trophy much more tolerable.

No more 349 club! (or 304 in this case)

Are you talking about 1 or 2?

At least this is better than inFamous 1 in which the blast shard trohpy was only a bronze. The dead drops were so much easier.

 Comment #15 by iNoland
Tuesday, June 07, 2011 @ 10:29:03 PM

I remember me and a friend sat down for like four hours to get the last fifty shards in the first one. The last one was in the Neon, out on the water where you have to hop on like ten wooden poles to get it. I freaked out because it was my first platinum and that was the last trophy.

 Comment #16 by dh4645
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 @ 07:45:15 AM

yeah it was easy to find the rest of them in infamous 1 once you completed the side missions.

 Comment #17 by solo013
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 @ 10:49:20 AM

Once you complete 60 side missions you will unlock the ability to have your map ping point you to the nearest shard no matter where it's at. Should be easy to get once you get to that point.

 Comment #18 by a3069namebke
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 @ 05:16:33 PM

They should've made this a silver. You have a power that helps you find all of the shards, but it is still extremely time consuming. Also, the shard count has dropped, so it's not as bad as the first game.

 Comment #19 by infavol
Thursday, June 09, 2011 @ 04:26:51 AM

I got this very easily. I got 284 of them before I even bought blast sense which shows the nearest shard. Just get them while you go about your business and you'll be fine.

 Comment #20 by Bircaninova

I hope this wont be as annoying as brutal legend serpants. I spent a whole day finding them and at the end I had 119/120.I wanted to kill myself.

 Comment #21 by FatalKrouzer
Thursday, June 09, 2011 @ 10:51:19 PM

Super easy I got them all by just pressing L3 and seeing where the closest one is. I'm also going to platinum this today.

 Comment #22 by SmbdyBttrThnU

U need 305 for this one. U can also check your status on this when you save your game.

349 in the original without a map. I'm determined to get them all this time.

@24.... i haven't gotten the blast sense yet and I have 220.... I just look for the after unlocking each area. Just seems easier that way.

This is easy once you get the "Blast Shard Sense" power

Has anyone ran into any glitched shards? I found one a little north of the enterance bridge in Flood Town, along the coast, located on a tree and it would not let me pick it up. :(

Had to get "Blast Sense" for the last one. It won't show up on any part of any island when pressing L3, it was too far off the map, if you know what I mean. No glitches on any shards though.

 Comment #30 by chenardizzle
Monday, June 13, 2011 @ 10:46:24 AM

"Blast Sense" is a waste of time. I only have a few shards on island 2 left to find,
and since there are maps out there with the shard locations, completing all the side missions just to get the ability is pointless... Granted the ability is required for platinum, but i'm not going out of my way to finish the 60 missions just to find a couple shards I'll either find while running around or can look up on a map.

 Comment #31 by dh4645
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 @ 10:07:59 AM

@Goovey #27
yes, i had one in the first island around the main loop. it was way out on a pole and it wouldnt let me pick it up. i just remembered where it was and when i was back around there later after a mission or so, it let me get it. very weird.

 Comment #32 by MyNameIsSean

I have got around 20 more shards left and haven't got the Blast Sense. Go me! :)

 Comment #35 by jamz1
Friday, June 17, 2011 @ 04:07:13 AM

its easy after you get the upgrade for the blast shard senses easier the the 1st game cus in the 1st 1 you had 2 get 350 blast shards & the trophy was only bronze but this time its gold & you can get tht upgrade tht makes it a lot easier.

 Comment #36 by BBM
Monday, June 20, 2011 @ 07:26:01 PM

I was at 292 Shards by the time I unlocked Shard Sense. Turns out I missed 4 on the first island, but I honestly think I could have found them without the Sense. IMO if this trophy was "Pick up all the blast shards scattered around New Marais WITHOUT using Shard Sense" it'd be a good Gold. As it is I think it should be a Silver

 Comment #37 by insanelanus
Monday, June 20, 2011 @ 09:48:26 PM

This was WAY easier than Infamous 1! I almost went insane trying to find all of blast shards in the first one! I followed a guide, missed one and spent 3 hrs trying to find it!

 Comment #38 by ALIOUS109
Wednesday, June 22, 2011 @ 09:11:35 AM

This one is surprisingly easier than the first games,and if you get that blast shard sense upgrade it more or less becomes and easy gold

Very Easy trophy , How ?
well almost at the end of the game u gain an ability that shows u
where do u get them no matter how far u are , and there is
the shards that u get from defusing bombs , and side missions.

really easy trophy, fun too. only 305 shards

 Comment #41 by GeoMaggs
Tuesday, July 05, 2011 @ 05:50:22 PM

There are plenty more than 305 shards to collect, too. Side mission shards count towards the final total.

Monday, July 18, 2011 @ 02:34:48 PM

got 304 without the blast sense perk then bought it and found my last one on some poples you had to jump around on

 Comment #43 by rtrindade
Tuesday, July 19, 2011 @ 01:34:33 PM

Thanks God there's de blast sense perk to help on this trophy. And now it is a fair trophy, because in inFamous (1), it was only a bronze one.

 Comment #44 by DS1992
Wednesday, July 20, 2011 @ 01:47:59 AM

for people who got 349 in inFamous 1
I forgot the shard on the bridge where you destroyed Alden on the side of Historic District.
It can also be on top of the high damaged building near the crater in Historic District.

do the side mission shards count?

Saturday, July 30, 2011 @ 08:01:04 PM

@Ironavenger130 Only some do. After a while If you get shards from the ticking Bomb or side missions or the civilians running around with them, it wont add. I Need 1 more shard and I didn't use the Shard Locater.

 Comment #48 by renato980
Tuesday, August 23, 2011 @ 06:48:37 PM

hard trophy. that is why we have shard locaters. also you can look for user generated content that actually show you where they are.

Sunday, January 22, 2012 @ 11:45:41 PM

The shards are much easier to find this time, which is good cause I know I wasted my life getting this trophy on I.1

301 without blast sense, w00t for OCD gaming. Way better than the first game.

I absolutly love this trophy, i played the game just normally without knowing this trophy exist and i just collected it if i saw one cuz your elektricity goes up and i saw it now and i have 295 collected without knowning it!!! cool...

 Comment #54 by Pyrophreek
Monday, June 11, 2012 @ 10:57:09 AM

what i did is i went to google and looked up "infamous 2 blast shard map" and they have the map with all the blast shard locations and print it and when i get a blast shard i mark it off on the printed map.
easiest way!

 Comment #55 by ThEliteOne
Monday, June 25, 2012 @ 04:52:18 PM

@30 youll also need to complete side missions in order to take back the islands, for 2 silver trophies. Each for completely "saving" the whole island.

 Comment #56 by ToxicRequiem
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 @ 09:03:39 AM

I got it pretty easily...I went around from the beginning, using my pulse sense to detect shards and get them as I reached my missions. I didn't go out looking for them otherwise. By the time I got my 60th side mission done and got the Shard Sense ability, I was missing about 40-50 of them, and all of them were in the Gas Works (I got lazy and stopped collecting shards when I got to the Gas Works)...another 10 minutes later, I had the trophy. Simple...

 Comment #57 by finalblow46
Tuesday, July 31, 2012 @ 06:00:54 PM

At first I thought this would be another trophy that would be an impossible time consuming task, but then I discovered the UGC content. The trophy was easy because if you search blast shards, you will find a mission that collects every blast shard for you without ever using the controller.

 Comment #58 by billyoatmeal
Tuesday, November 06, 2012 @ 01:27:16 PM

@50 The shard bombs and the people you rob for blast shards don't count against the total. I worried about that myself and looked it up.

WHy this long posts?

Go to UGC
Type Blast shards 305~Auto collect by son-o-sam
It will play a 10 min slide after 10 mins you will have this trophy.

 Comment #63 by Owertire1
Tuesday, July 02, 2013 @ 06:52:49 AM

this one is easy you can unlock a upgrade that show you where the closest shard is so after all it's just getting that upgrade and BOOM you have a simple gold trophy! xD

 Comment #64 by HeroofTime4u

Monday, January 20, 2014 @ 05:14:53 PM

I just the UGC mission that collects them all. Took a few tries to load on my crap internet connection but it was worth it. Have a lot more energy early on and don't have to find them all.

Sunday, August 31, 2014 @ 11:51:50 AM

Finished my 1st playthrough, all shards found.
Considering how easy it is to find all the shards especially with a lot of them in plain view, the use of a map scanner and not forgetting the totally pointless upgrade, why on earth would you use a UGC? LOL

Think about it!! First, your taking a huge portion of fun out of the game and it's a simple task to complete and second, how many games do you know that actually come with a map scanner for collectables??
It would be like any other normal part of a game and would be a far better challenge without the map scanner or the upgrade and a better reason to put up all these posts! LOL

 Comment #69 by GastNDorf
Saturday, April 18, 2015 @ 03:57:51 PM

Collectibles are nothing "fun" or "challenging"... It's just a boring task developers add to make the game last longer.

Good thing the UGC is here, that leaves more time for the better parts.
