They Never Stop Comin'!
Collect 10 Million Bolts

Collect 10 million bolts. This is NOT cumulative, meaning you must have 10 million bolts banked up at any one time. After defeating the Biobliterator, the game will propose that you enter 'Challenge Mode', make sure you choose to play it. You will be at the start of the game again, but you will have all the weapons, bolts, Skill Points, Titanium Bolts and Nanotech, as well as your Charge Boots, Map-o-Matic and Bolt Grabber v2 that you earned from your first playthrough.

There are a lot of changes made to Challenge Mode. Enemies are extremely strong, and you can now upgrade weapons to the level 8 Omega status. Your main concern here though is the "Bolt Multiplier". When you kill enemies in Challenge Mode, the Bolt Multiplier will go up. You can see the Bolt Multiplier in the top right corner of the screen. It will start at 1x, and the maximum it can reach is 20x. When you're hit by an enemy, the Multiplier will go back to 1x. If you can keep it at 20x you will earn huge amounts of bolts.
10 million bolts at any given time is quite a bit because you will be tempted to spend it. I recommend purchasing the Infernox armour and upgrading only 3 or so of your favourite weapons to Mega (Shield Charger and Plasma Coil especially). That should be enough for you to defeat most enemies and get through the game.

Please note that Arena challenge rewards increase tenfold too.

You must have 10 million bolts to get this trophy.

Just play in challenge mode and don't buy too many weapons so you can save some bolts.
Get the multiplier to 20x and break everything around. You will reach 10.000.000 pretty quick.

I just played through challenge mode and when I was about half way through I already reached 10 million. So just keep playing and don't get hit too much :)

I just kept flying between some of the later planets and blasting through the levels in Challenge Mode for this one. It helped with the Omega Weapons one as well.

Really easy actually. You just know how to dogde. I actually got it in my 1st challenge mode play, and during and after the Crash Site planet, and I managed to keep a 20x multiplier. I had 3 million bolts and way before finishing the last planet(not counting final boss fights), I had over 11 millions bolts. I got hit a couple of times.

I'm doubting this ISN'T cumulative, since they put the same thing in the Going Commando guide and it is. You just have to use 1 save file the entire game and never make a new one, or the count resets. You shouldn't even need more than 1 file for anyway, since the game has nothing you can't go back for. However people are too accustomed to using multiple save files, and I'm sure that screwed people up.

Until I try for myself and see that I'm only hitting the marks in this title when I have the exact amount banked, I'll go ahead and assume it works exactly like the other two games.

It isn't cumulative actually, same with the 1 million, you have to have them all at one time.

Go to the last planet. Whack all of the green lights on the starting platform. Fly over the rails and then you'll die and come back at the starting platform with all the lights back. Repeat until you've got enough bolts. Every try will get you about 7,000 bolts without a multiplier (don't forget about the lights behind your ship).

Edit: It goes down to about 1,000 bolts eventually.

I did this by gaining a x20 multiplier, flying to Metropolis, destroying all the enemies, flying to a different planet and returning. You earn about (rough estimate) 250,000 bolts every time you fight through them with the 20x multiplier (the big four-eyed aliens give you about 50,000 by themselves). I went from 5 million bolts to 10 million bolts in about 20 minutes. Hope this helps!

Hi everyone, just wanted to throw in what I've noticed. While the first two games were cumulative the third one doesn't seem to be. I'm on my first playthrough, have bought EVERYTHING (including the PDA for 250,000 and multiple weapons for 130-170 thousand). I am currently holding 750,000 bolts and I don't have the one million bolt trophy yet. For some strange reason it's not allowing the trophy to be cumulative. I know other people have reported this problem as well. Maybe an oversight on the part of Idol Minds? It would be one of many, unfortunately.

I've thought of a better tip. Go to Annihilation Nation and do the Scorpio challenge. With a weapon at level 8 it takes less than a minute and will get you 9,000 bolts apart from the first 2 times you do it.

Note that you actually have to have your bolt count reach 10,000,000 bolts to unlock this trophy. Best way I found is to gather up a x20 multiplier in challenge mode, and go through Koros. Use the Bolt Grabber you get on the Zeldrin Starport to break everything. Do not get hit by anything. There will also be 2x multiplier crates along the way. These will take your multiplier to the maximum of x40. Get as many bolts as you can when this is active. You'll get around about 3,000,000 bolts or more from this planet alone, which should be a big help getting towards the goal.

Easiest method i've found for this is to: Use the ryno (or your preferred weapon) and you need the box breaker along with challenge mode, then go to the second last planet (Kudo?) and go to town with it, along with the 20x multiplier, 1 million every trip and only takes about 3 minutes max.

You need to have 10 million bolts banked at once. It's actually not too hard, between the Arean and Ranger missions and the box breaker if you have it. I had 10 million when I hit the crash site, bought all the weapons, and another 5 million by the time I had the weapons upgraded.
