The Skate franchise returns with Skate 3. Black Box's latest edition takes a big focus on Teamwork this time around, which in turn makes for a more exciting and enjoyable experience. The story so far is that you're conquered San Vanelona, you're a legend who's written your name in Skate lore. Now, Reda takes you to Port Carverton, where your goal is to set up a Skateboard business and become a mogul in the industry. The whole point is to sell boards and get your name out there in this new city.

Simple natural progression through the Career mode is the key to getting most of these trophies. Only a few of them depend on online components in order to obtain. Remember, it's always good to practice using flickit controls and using the tools that Black Box has provided, such as the Trick analyser and the good old Trick Guide, in order to develop some good skill with this game's mechanics. Honestly, if you can develop good skills early on, it will really pay off later in the game.

Remember, if you are ever having trouble with challenges, you can always switch to Easy difficulty or play it online to make things easier. As long as you have the patience to cope with some of the tougher challenges, then this Platinum will be fairly fun and enjoyable to get.

Step 1: Getting Started and Selling Boards

After creating your skater, complete Coach Frank's skate.School as well as the tutorials for skate.Park. Once you have your bearings, you will start out in the University District, where you can start completing Challenges. These challenges will include everything like Films, Photos, Trannys, Hall of Meat, Deathraces, etc. It's up to you to complete them all in order to sell boards. The main goal of the game is to sell 1 million boards, so you should focus on just playing through all types of challenges to sell boards.

When you complete a challenge, it will count as "Owning" it, and you will get your board sales. However, if you wish to get extra board sales, you can go back and play these challenges online, as well as attempt to "Kill" them. You will get about 1200-1500 extra board sales per challenge if you do this, so it can add up quickly to your total. As you keep completing challenges, more of them will unlock all over Port Carverton, and they will get a little harder as well. If you are ever having trouble, just switch to Easy mode and play through the challenge.

Along, the way, you will be unlocking other trophies as well on your quest to sell 1 million boards. These include the 6 milestone trophies, pro challenges, trannys, GvR, Deathrace, and Hall of Meat Trophies, among others. Just focus on getting 1 million boards sold for now. Eventually, you will finally sell 1 million boards, and unlock the "Deck Peddler" trophy, as well as the "Dedicated" trophy after you beat all the challenges. You are now getting close to your Platinum.

Step 2: Killing Challenges and Miscellaneous Clean-Up

Now that you've sold 1 million boards and beat every challenge, it's time to go back and "Kill" 80 challenges that you've completed for the "Mass Murderer" trophy. You might have already Killed some of them on your first try, but most of them are pretty tricky, and will require you to go back and play them again. Just go to your "Completed" section in the challenges menu and choose a challenge and select "Try Killing It". This is probably the hardest part of them game, as it requires a lot of patience and quite a bit of skill. Even if you've played through the game long enough to develop some good skill, Killing some of the challenges can be pretty ridiculous.

Remember to keep a cool head through this part, even if it seems hard and tedious at some points. Switch to Easy whenever you want, and just keep at it. Eventually, you'll end up Killing your 80th challenge and getting your hard-earned "Mass Murderer" trophy. If you can get past this part, then it's all downhill from here until you're Platinum.

After Killing 80 challenges, just look and see which trophies you have left to get. These might be the Secret Trophies or maybe some simple ones you missed like "Mantastic Voyage" or "Don't be so Mayo", When you have unlocked these, it's time to move on to the Online trophies.

Step 3: Online

This is the final step on your road to the Platinum, and luckily, it's pretty simple and doesn't take too long. The online trophies are A LOT easier than Skate 2's online trophies, and none of them are much of a grind. Start by creating or joining a Skate Team and going for Team-based trophies like "Team Up", "Lot Pwners", and "Talking bout Team Practice". Then just focus on solo-based trophies like "You're Winner!" and "Sellout!". Remember to use the boosting thread if you ever need help.

Also, you should focus on the skate.Reel trophies at this time as well, like "Artsy-Fartsy" and "Constructive Criticism". Other online trophies like "High Five!" and "It Takes a Really Big Village..." will unlock over time. Once you have unlocked the last of the online trophies, your Platinum should pop as well. Congratulations!

Trophy Boosting Thread: Trophy Boosting Thread (Read First Post!) -


Overall, Skate 3 is a fairly easy Platinum to get, as simply playing casually through your Career will get you most of the trophies, and the online is not a big hassle at all this time around. Just remember, if things seem to get tough, always be patient and confident, because you will eventually get past the tough parts, whether it be by your own skill, or with the help of and online friend. Now go out there and Own Port Carverton! Good Luck!

Maloof Money Cup 2010 NYC Pack DLC:


  • Estimated trophy difficulty: 3-5/10 (Depends on Skill)
  • Offline trophies: 5 (2, 2, 1
  • Online trophies: None
  • Approximate amount of time to 100%: 1-3 hours (Depending on luck and skill)
  • Minimum number of playthroughs: 1
  • Number of missable trophies: None
  • Glitched trophies: None
  • Does difficulty affect trophies?: No, the game can be set on casual
  • Do trophies stack?: No
  • Do cheat codes disable trophies?: No cheats available.


Maloof Money Cup 2010 NYC was the first of three major DLC packs for Skate 3. This brings a new street contest, two new photo challenges, two new spots and two new lots to own. If you Platinumed the base game, then this should feel like more of the same to you and should mostly breeze through. If you couldn't Platinum the game or you did so a while ago then this may be a little trickier. However, with the tips contained within and practice you should manage it eventually. Note that there is some terminology you might not be familiar with if you don't know much about skating. The in-game trick list does a good job of showing tricks and defining lingo. In addition, you can do some of this online with friends.


Step 1 - Street Contest

You are required to win the street contest before you can advance in the DLC so do so first. This shouldn’t take more than one or two tries, especially if you use the tips below.

Step 2 - Photo Challenges and Own the Spots.

Next you should do the other small challenges around the map. Again these shouldn't take long at all but for locations and tips, see the guide below.

Step 3 - Own the Lots

Finally, do the 'Own the Lots' featured in this DLC, which is by far the longest step. You can do them in either order but personally I'd recommend doing the Street one first as it's a bit easier. Once you have done these, congrats on your 100%!

Win a Ranked Online Solo Challenge (2) 

You must be by yourself to get this trophy. Go to your Online Challenge Menu and select "Versus". Then select if you want to do a quick match or custom match. I suggest you do a custom Hall of Meat match, as it seems to be one of the easier games to beat. The trick to Hall of Meat is to land in a cannonball and start rolling and pressing to "push" yourself across the ground. This will give you a lot of extra points. Once you choose what game you want to play, you'll will be matched up with other skaters to play against. Just win the challenge and the trophy will pop.

Complete an Online Career challenge (1) 

Any time you see a challenge that says "Playable Online" it means that it's possible to hook up with someone online to play the challenge with. Most of the challenges are playable online, and it's highly recommended that you play as many of them online as you can since it gives you extra boards towards "Deck Peddler". Any time you do a challenge that is playable online, just choose "Play Online" and it will match you up with other skaters. Then, once you are all in the lobby, just start the challenge, complete it, and the trophy will pop. Choose an easy challenge so it's not so hard, and you can also use the boosting thread if you don't want to match up with strangers.

1. Play on normal or easy difficulty, you gather speed much quicker and it is harder to fall.

This is the hardest trophy in the game, and will come over time. In order to "Kill" a challenge, you must do more than is asked when you first accepted it. You will have to go back and retry every challenge after owning it so you can see the "Kill" objectives. These are harder than "Owning" objectives, so some challenges might be pretty tricky.

Secret Trophies
Trick Spammer
30,000 point line  

Go to "Locations" on your challenge menu and teleport to the Super-Ultra Mega-Park. place a mark at the top and just head down the entire Park. Make sure to use or to push up ramps for more air. Just do a lot of 540 spins, Christ Airs, Superdude body flips, No-foot-air, etc. This will rack up a TON of points to your line. Follow this video (credit to PureLegit):

10,000 point trick 

Go to "Locations" from the challenge menu and teleport to the Observatory. Head down the road a bit until you see the University Ditch (this is the area where you did the "Ditch Hits" film challenge). Set a marker at the top and start heading down the Ditch. You will pick a lot of speed really quickly, so make sure you trucks are tight enough to handle it. Every time you hit a huge gap, just do some 540 grab spins to get a lot of points and a x3 multiplier. This is also a good area to get "Trick Spammer" if you are having trouble at the Super-Ultra Mega-Park.

Thanks to MrSmugz for the video.

Did Somebody Get a Boo Boo?
75,000 point bail 

A really easy place to get the trophy is during the 'Bridges of Meat" Hall of Meat Challenge. Just bail right after you jump off the ramp and start racking up points. Remember to press to "Push" your body forward to get more points.

Thanks to Roosterteeth for the video.

Extreme Grindage
Perform a 100 meter or 300 foot grind 

An easy way to get this trophy is after you beat "Hall of Meat - Meat in Training". You'll be on top of a huge hill with a rail that's about 500 feet long. Just ollie and grind it and by the time you reach the bottom, you'll get the trophy. Here's a helpful video:

Thanks to Roosterteeth for the video.

Gone Viral
Catch the Skate Flu (2) 

This is a Viral trophy, meaning you will get it when you play online with somebody who already has it. Just play online until you get it, or use the boosting thread if you aren't having good luck.

DLC: Maloof Money Cup 2010 NYC Pack
Cost: 4.99 Trophies: 5
Money Cup Master
Win the Maloof NY Contest   

This is the first thing you'll do in the DLC. If you don't know how this works, you face off against 5 other AI skaters at the same time in a three round contest. After each round you get 5 points for first, 4 points for second all the way down to 0 points for finishing last. The winner is the skater with the most points at the end, meaning that you don't need to win every round for this trophy. The rounds are broken down as followed:

Round 1: Grinds

Self-explanatory. The only way to earn points is by grinding. You have 1:30 to get as many points as possible. The way I do this is just go straight and grind the rail and the ledge, then at the bottom I grind the long crescent. Just make sure to trick onto and off everything and you should get a good amount of points. Then teleport back to the start then repeat until the time is up. Since everyone is doing this at the same time, be careful of collisions with other skaters, especially at the start. Try to get at least 6000 points. It's random how well everyone else performs but 6000 seems to be enough to win most of the time. It's possible to be beaten and it's also possible to win with less.

Round 2: Best Trick

All you need to do on this one is do a single trick that beats everyone else's. You have as many attempts you can fit into 1:30. In addition you have no multipliers to help you out but luckily it's an even slate. The way I did it was darkflip (holding down while doing a trick) while spinning onto the rail directly in front then flipping off, this gave a good score. Another way I managed high scores is on the ledge in front of the rail, where I did a little tweak (move in any direction) before landing and tricking off. If you are good at landing into manuals, this will basically guarantee victory if you do it well enough. Try to get over 800, as this seems to be the max I have seen the AI go.

Round 3: Jam

This is nearly identical to round 1, except anything goes. Still, I recommend going for a similar approach to the first round, as grinds are usually the best way to go in flat competitions but you can also do random tricks inbetween to boost your score and multiplier. Again, 6000 is a suitable target to aim for.


  • No AI skaters are consistent over replays of the contest or more importantly over different rounds. In 2 attempts winning all rounds, the next closest person was 8. You can therefore safely finish second or higher each round, unless the same person wins a round more than once. If you win at least one it'll be very hard to lose.
  • You can't restart or you'll start at round 1 again. Therefore only restart if you’re doing poorly in the grind round. As implied above, it is not the end of the world if you don't win a round.
  • I'm not entirely sure how the AI works. They may be designed to the players skill so the better you do the better they do to compete. Like I've said before though, it seems to be random because as I've had times I've done well and they come close and times when they do really badly despite me doing well.
Maloof Street Slayer
Complete the Maloof NY Street OTL  

An OTL (Own the Lot) is a series of tasks in a certain location, ranging from tasks you may get in photo challenges to a list of tricks you must do within a certain time. The Maloof NY Street (Called Maloof Money Cup NY in-game) has 6 tasks. Below is a breakdown of each with tips.

Maloof NY Accumulation - You'll need to get 12000 points in 3 minutes in and around the globe. This isn't too bad providing you get a x3 multiplier quickly by doing tricks and you do tweaks, no foots or even backflips if you're good enough. Don't repeat the same trick as you'll get less points each time for it.

Bank to the Future - This isn't too bad. You'll need to grind 3 different ledges in as many minutes. You don't need to do them all in one go. The trickiest one is the second as you need to grind to the end and it's quite long. As long as you get a good speed and a stable grind (such as the board being parallel with the ledge) you should make it.

Pathway Bush Gaps - Easy. Just get the timing good enough and you should gap each one with ease. Again you don't need to do all at once and you can slightly pass through the bushes and get away with it.

Tailblunter - This is one of the trickier ones, you'll need to do a tail, nose or blunt slide on 3 of the marked ledges. Your best bets are tail or nose slides, where you need to grind using just either end of the board. You'll need to move your board 90 degrees in mid-air to do this correctly. There's also a way to 'cheat' this, stand right by a ledge with the board in your hand, jump () and get on in mid-air, you may end up grinding this way.

Maloof Manual Madness - This can also be a bit tricky. What you'll need to do is jump on the pad directly into a nose manual (lightly press ) then transition into a normal manual (lightly press ) then trick off at the end. You won't make it if you go too fast, I suggest only pushing twice on the run up.

Maloof NY List - This one is the main event. You have 5 minutes to do 10 things on a list. Only four show up at once, when you do one another one unlocks and so on. Below is a list of what you need to do with tips:

  • 1000pt Grind - Do this with the one below. Go to the Maloof Edge OTS place and grind that ledge to the end and gap off, if you get 1k points + that's two birds with one stone. Try to get a multiplier beforehand to make it easier.
  • 1000pt Gap Off the Side Edge - See above
  • Grind Around the Bank - Easy, directly to the left of the start point.
  • Footplant a Hubba - Just after the bank above, Ollie onto the Hubba and hold + to footplant it, might take two or so goes.
  • Grind Over the Grate -The grate is right at the bottom, this is easy enough.
  • Do a Darkslide - Darksliding requires you to hold while flipping onto a grind so the board is upside down. You'll need to trick off again to avoid crashing, easier on rails.
  • Hit 3 Rails without Bailing - This needs to be done without bailing once, even if it's on something else inbetween. You can get off your board manually though. Go to the spawn marker and grind the rail in front. Get off, climb the stairs and grind the other rail down. Lastly turn right and grind the rail nearby.
  • Do a Bluntslide - This one is the make or break here, as it's the only one where luck is involved. See the in-game trick list to see what this looks like. You may get this randomly jumping on rails if you're lucky. You can sort of cheat this similar to the method for 'Tailblunter', as if you're lucky you'll do a noseblunt instead of a nose grind.
  • Step Up the Bottom Hubba - This isn't too bad, it just needs a little bit of speed and good timing but if you jump too early you won't make it, too late and you'll crash.
  • Gap the Central Manny Pad - This one can be a little tricky at first. Start at the pad you footplanted, go down the ramp nearby then down the one to the right of the gap you needed to do. This should give you enough speed to do the gap. If you are close, you can also give yourself a boost by footplanting near the end.
Maloof Tranny Monster
Complete the Maloof NY Tranny OTL  

This is similar to the Street OTL but in the secret Skate Park. The tasks are:

Vertical Vibrations - You have 3 minutes to get 40,000 points around the park. This sounds tricky but the trick is to just turn around and go backwards and forwards between two half pipes, fitting as many tricks such as fingerflips, no foots, tweaks and backflips in as you can. You might fail once or twice but it shouldn’t take long to get the hang of it.

Bridging the BLAOW! - All you need to do is do one gap, marked by arrows. You'll need to know how to pump half pipes (grab the board while going down halfpipes, see the tutorials for more help), as otherwise you won’t get enough speed.

Hip that Line - First go down the ramp slowly and perform the transfer. Don't go too fast or you'll land hard and won't get enough speed for the step-up. When you manage enough speed, go for the step-up. You can still make it with average speed but you'll need impeccable timing and luck. After this, just grind down the rail. You don't have to do them all in one go.

Vert Tag-O - You'll need to 'tag' 10 spots in 3 minutes. Tagging will occur by either grinding the rail the arrows point at, handplanting the quarterpipes ( while riding up it), or just jumping into the arrow. None of these are hard.

Permission to Transfer - Pretty easy. Just jump into the quarterpipe, then gap the place shown, making sure to do a one foot over it (+ for example)

Quartered List - Trick List. 5 minutes to do 12 objectives.

  • 4.0m Air - This one, despite being first, is the make-or-break one here. Not much advice I can give you other than going back and forth between two opposite quarterpipes to gain air, this is down to luck too. If you get it, you're mostly sorted.
  • Grind the Low Bank Rail - Easy, it's to the left of the spawn point, where the OTS was.
  • Gap Across the Inset Quarterpipe - Go up to where you started 'Hip that Line' and turn around. Go full speed and jump across at the last second. Try not to accidentally grind the rail (although this might get you something else).
  • Do a 180 No-Foot - Easy, the first thing I always do. Do a No-Foot by grabbing the board and holding , you can do this wherever you get enough air, even when jumping from your spawn position.
  • Grind Up and Down the Angled Wedge - Near the rail mentioned above. You'll need a decent amount of speed, all you’ll need to do is jump on (preferably from the right), and hope you have enough momentum to go straight back down when you reach the middle.
  • Grind the Inset Quarterpipe's Rail- See above but grind the rail instead.
  • Do a 540 Fingerflip -Pretty simple, a fingerflip is doing a boardflip while grabbing it, get enough speed going up a quarterpipe, do a fingerflip and spin, you should get this one.
  • Gap over an Extension - These are the things directly opposite the spawn point on top of the quarterpipe, get up to that area by going up the quarterpipe anywhere other than where the extension is and holding forward, then jump back off over the extension.
  • 2,000pt Grab Trick - This one can be a little tricky. If you use the same method as for 'Vertical Vibrations', you should rack up a 2,000pt trick eventually.
  • Handplant the Skinny Edge - This is near the angled wedge. You'll need a decent amount of speed, go up the skinny edge and hold .
  • Do a 720 - Not that bad when you know how, get a decent amount of air and hold both sticks in the same direction (left or right). You might land awkwardly but it'll still count if you got enough.
  • Gap the Arch - Again not bad, you just need a bit of speed and will gap it no problem.
Picture Worth a Thousand Curbs
Complete both Maloof NY Photo Challenges  

These are really easy so you shouldn’t have any problems. You should see the first one immediately after the contest, then the second one nearby after completing the first.

The first one just requires you to jump over the bins, and grab ( and/or ) in midair. You should get this first time no problem. The second requires you to jump onto the platform, land in a manual (hold lightly), hold it across the platform then jump off. This might take a couple of tries depending on how good you are at landing into manuals but nothing too daunting. The trophy will unlock after completing the second photo challenge.

Where's My Money?
Complete both Maloof NY OTS Challenges  

OTSs (Own the Spot) are when you are given a specific spot and you are required to hit a certain points total off a single trick there without the help of multipliers. In both of these cases you need to exceed 900 points.

Maloof Edge - From where you start in Maloof, head towards the big cylindrical structure in the North West. You should discover this on the way. The only real way of getting the total is by grinding the black ledge. You can realistically use either side, the left side is easier to get onto but harder to stay on, and the right side vice versa. Either way, try and do a grab trick ( or while pushing in any direction) when tricking off and you should hit 900 in no time. Personally I got 1448 using the right side which is more than enough.

Money Banks - From Maloof Edge, continue towards the cylindrical structure and enter it from the east side, then keep going straight until it’s discovered. Here you have two options, the ledge on the left or the rail on the right. Either option is possible but I highly recommend sticking to the edge. The main reason for this is if you jump off a little early, most of the time you'll land into another grind which will net you a few more points. I also did a grab trick onto the initial grind but be careful as it is easy to wipe out. My personal best with this method was 1624.
