Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Trophies
Overhead view -- just like old times...
Used overhead view on Shadow Moses Island.

Missable This trophy can be acquired during Act 4: Twin Suns. In this Act you will return to Shadow Moses Island, the place where the very first Metal Gear Solid game took place in. When you reach the base and the helipad, you can choose to change the camera view to overhead by moving the camera with the right analogue stick over Snake’s head. With this view, start moving around a bit. This will result in Snake getting all nostalgic about the past and you unlocking a new trophy.

Wouldnt say rotate, just push your camera/anolog down, then you hear snake comment on the veiw, if snake doesnt say anything obviously not got the camera correct (just to note i was stood on the helepad with mgs1 facecamo on) shouldnt think that matters though

The trophy image is a Chinese word, it means "Look down".

Just got it right now. I put on the MGS1 face camo and had overhead view but nothing happened until I walked around with the overhead view.

From what I understand you have to be facing North when you rotate the camera up. I tried for 20 minutes walking around with the overhead view with no luck but when I tried facing North and did it, it instantly popped.

MGS1 camo, heliport, camera all the way up and facing north - popped only when I had those conditions, otherwise I was just running around like headless chicken and nothing was happening

I didn't have the MGS1 camo equipped and still gt it.

I was facing due North when I moved the camera into position and just nudged a direction when Snake started going on about "overhead views".

it's all about time.
You just make the camera as high as possible for a period of time.
Nothing else i did.
I even went out of the helipad area and it still poped up.
