inFamous 2 Trophies
Extreme Makeover
Destroy 30 verandas or other large objects.

Verandas can be found on the side of buildings on the main island of New Marais. They can be destroyed by shooting lightning at them. On the main island, there's at least one building on every street that should have one, so it's just a matter of finding them and destroying them. Large objects also count towards this trophy, such as those big gas filled towers inside the power plants; those towers are red in white in color.

Verandas / Fuel Towers

In order for it to count, the “Big Destruction” stunt bonus must appear on your screen, which is by destroying all the verandas on a building or blowing up several of these towers at once.

Destroy 30 verdanas or large objects, and the trophy will unlock. If you know for a fact that you destroyed 30 large objects throughout the game but the trophy still hasn't unlocked, do it again all in one sitting. The trophy should unlock properly then.

These are the ones on the sides of the buildings all over, right? Does it need
to be 30 different ones? I've blown up a bunch, certainly more than 30,
but still no trophy.

1 2 & 3 you need to destroy the tall circular pipe like thigs in the east end of flood town you can destroy these by tossing sticky grenades at the cone at the bottom (this has 3 speed poles on it

It seems like it needs to be individual big things, too, so you can't get it until
you can blow up the gas silo things later on. They stay blown up, but if you
die they regrow, so it can be hard to tell what else you need to blow up.

So, it looks like 30 different verandas and gas silos.

You have to do all 30 in one sitting. The best way (which I did) is to toss sticky grenades on top of the balconies. There are a lot of them in the streets (first island)...

For god's sake... I've probably blown up about three times that amount, and I stilll didn't get it... I have 2 playthroughs, but overall, this is probably a glitched trophy, I mean if so many people are having problems with it. Just making sure, but the the Verandas are those balconies with lights at night, right? Anything else it lets you blow up?

I stil haven't got it, but it must be 30 different in one sitting . . . Gas works seems to have a shit-load of gas towers, so I'll try there.

Yep. There she blows. One sitting, and all different targets. I only got 23 Big Distruction. I did get a few towers go at the same time as the other, but only got the credit for one.

I got this trophy by blowing up the gas silos on the east side of the second island. There are at least 20 to destory. I also destroyed a lot of balconies on the first island.

Here's how I just got my...

Destroyed verandas and wooden towers on first island (including trip with Nix on boat into swamp)

On second island destroyed tall thin gas tanks *and* some of the big metal pipes that hang above streets.

My trophy did not pop until I destroyed about 5 pipes.

Yep, this is confirmed, it has to be done in one go.

why does the game not give you a counter for this
such an easy trophy that took too long

I'm not positive about needing to destroy all 30 in one sitting. I got the trophy after a couple of sessions of blowing up only verandas on the first island. I did notice it seemed to "pop" pretty quickly after I started using kinetic pulse to hurl cars into the balconies. So for all I know, I really may have done all 30 in one session. The point is, glitches aside, it should be easy to get. I'm pretty sure I had this one locked up before I completed 10 missions.

I did this on the first island. They also don't different ones. I did this using the same verandas because they respawn when you walk far enough away from them and return.

I'm wondering if it's because of the way they are destroyed. I've been using the Double grenade which works wonders. All kinds of Big Destruction bonuses but no trophy. I'm going to try and knock them down with the Alpha Blast and see if I can get it with just the balconies on the 1st island.

I too have destroyed well over 30 verandas with Big Destruction bonuses - most recently in one sitting. It should have kicked long ago but since I'm down to 3 remaining trophies I've started, specifically, working on this one. I was destroying them using blasts to take out all the veranda supports in one shot. Gonna try my luck with the fuel tanks now.

It finally worked. It took blowing up a good portion of the fuel tanks after a bunch of verandas in one sitting but it worked.

I made it on second playthrough. Just walked around the streets and destructed verandas with blasts. On one sitting of course and without dying. And out the quest phase. I mean without active missions. And the same verandas. Going back and basting it again with BLAST. Before in first playing I destructed oil tanks and verandas a hundred times I think with rockets, grenades, cars etc. No luck.

This trophy just pisses me off. I've destroyed so many.

This is much more satisfying when you throw cars at verandas.
