Tomb Raider Trophies
Shopaholic
Buy every upgrade and character in multiplayer.

Note: With the release of latest patch (v1.03 for Retail version, v1.02 for Digital and some EU copies), The General character is no longer needed for this trophy. This also applies to PS4 version of the game.

This will be the last multiplayer trophy you will get as one of the characters requires you to reach level 60, max level.

Don't forget to collect as much salvage as possible, whether during normal play or boosting sessions. You will need around 36,000 Salvage for all characters (thanks to Makino for confirmation). You won't need to collect salvage for weapon upgrades, if the glitch below works for you, though.

This trophy could be glitched in a good way. The trophy unlocked for many people who posted in this thread after they've bought all characters (minus The General) and nothing else. Just buy every available character including Lara, who is unlocked at level 60, quit the game and reload. When the game starts and checks your trophy data, Shopaholic should unlock.

For PS4 version, please check this thread: shopaholic clear instructions 9 (wrk confirmed as of patch 1.04) for a glitch that lets you unlock the trophy before you reach level 60. This glitch may not work on PS3 version.

Most time consuming trophy.. Need to reach prestige 3 to get the last character

70 hours to get the multiplayer trophies? I was mildly interested in this but now... No thank you.

Tuesday, March 05, 2013 @ 10:31:55 PM

It's more like 40-60+ hrs, depending how fast or slow you are if boosting solo... 70 is like the max, if it takes anyone that long from boosting, you're obviously doing something wrong.

bronze trophy for getting prestige 3 level 58.... someone must be crazy at EIDOS to allow this shit:o

 Comment #5 by diagnonsense
Sunday, March 10, 2013 @ 07:42:50 PM

You must have over 200,000 salvage to unlock everything. Save at least 170,000 salvage for every primary and secondary upgrade for each faction. DO NOT buy any weapon upgrades unless you absolutely need too before prestige 3 because when you prestige, your weapon upgrades do not carry over. However, the characters you purchase do carry over. In addition, there is a challenge called "waste not" for saving up 100,000 salvage AT ONCE; It is not cumulative. This challenge will give you 50,000 XP. It is a small boost for your grinding trophy. IMO, this should of been a silver trophy, or EIDOS should of had the general unlocked at prestige 1, then level up to 58 again. Oh well, good luck guys.

...you can spot the salvage boxes in every level there are not many but every box gives about 160

 Comment #8 by diagnonsense
Monday, March 11, 2013 @ 08:09:17 AM

You can also accumulate more salvage per box when you use the survival skill "Advanced Looting". This skill will give you between 220-300 salvage per box. It is not much but every little bit counts.

Even if you boost from level 1 and earn 3,000 xp per minute. This will take a little less than 40 hours.

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 @ 09:20:52 AM

for boosting this on your own..

1. create a private match and choose Rescue mode..
2. choose the Underground map (for the self destruct option)
3. change the match options to 20min and 20 medkits to retrieve
4. start as survivor!! and collect the 20 medkits.. it will take you about 12min to do this
5. 2e round you will start as solarii.. just start collecting salvage boxes for about 4,5min.. than the nose of the submarine will open and you can go inside to puch the self distruct button.. this will end the round after 2min.. keep collecting the salvage boxes till then..
6. start again as survivor and start collecting the medkits again

the survivor rounds will grant you about 30000xp in 10min. 3000xp bonus for winning the game.

Tips: use Second Wind & Advanced looting

Tips: use Second Wind & Advanced looting
shoot barrals and walls for the demolition reward 125xp
when the super weapons spawn use them on a barrel for a one time xp bonus
like mentioned befor.. stack 100000salvage for a 50000xp bonus!!

and don't spend salvage till you reach tier3!!!

During the self destuct mode the "Escapist" trophy also completed for me..

Hope this helps!!

Wow. I just started to play TR multiplayer today and when I bought my first character, it gave me Narcissistic AND this trophy. I was really surprised. I'm only level 10 now but it looks like I won't have to go into any prestige mode to unlock this one.

I don't know if this was supposed to happen or if I am just really lucky.

anyone tell me if salvage resets too when reach prestige?
And when i reach prestige goes to prestige 1 or 2? If 1 i have to reach level 60 4 times?

 Comment #17 by diagnonsense
Wednesday, March 13, 2013 @ 03:19:02 PM

@Comment #10

I just received this trophy, and your method takes too long because of wasting time with the solari for 5 minutes.

1) Pick Beach instead because it is the smallest map in the game, and it helps get to medkits faster when you don't have "second wind."

2) After you get your 20 medkits for round 1, quit the match, go back into private match, and set it to 20 medkits again. Rinse and repeat...A LOT.

3) Collect salvage while you are getting medkits. They respawn every other medkit you return. They are very close to each other, and they are located in the tunnels.


 Comment #18 by diagnonsense
Wednesday, March 13, 2013 @ 03:20:06 PM

@comment 16: Salvage and the characters you buy do not reset only your weapon upgrades do. This is why you should not buy weapon upgrades until you buy the general in prestige 3. Remember, it takes 250,000 salvage to buy everything. 170,000 salvage for all weapon upgrades.

This is your journey: Level 1-60. Prestige 1 Level 1-60. Prestige 2 Level 1-60. Prestige 3 Level 1-58. The compound bow is the last weapon you unlock at 58. You do not have to level up past prestige 3 level 58.

 Comment #19 by gerritw
Wednesday, March 13, 2013 @ 03:56:58 PM

@ #17 you are right about the solarii round!! i'm restarting the first round now over and over and over and...

i disagree about the map.. Underground is about the same size but and it hasn't all the climbs and drops where you lose the medkit... at the underground map you can pick up the medkit and make a straigth run back

#22 No I don't think I did. I just played a few games of casual TDM and when I got the notification I could've bought a new character, I bought him and then I saw Narcissistic come up and then surprisingly Shopaholic. The character was the first one you can buy which is the captain (Not Roth but the other guy; forgot his name).

And I doubt it even matters but I did redeem a Hunter Outfit code before I started playing the game (even though that outfit is for SP so I doubt it would have effected anything in MP). Just felt I should note that.

This trophy is an absolute nightmare whats the quickest way to get this can anyone help?

 Comment #27 by BlindMango
Saturday, March 16, 2013 @ 05:07:16 PM

QUESTION - Would you be able to buy all the weapon upgrades at prestige 2 and then prestige to 3 and buy the costume then? Saving the extra 58 levels you'd have to gain after that? Can someone confirm if this is a possibility or not? Or do you just have to buy all costumes and upgrades in the SAME prestige?

 Comment #28 by BlindMango
Saturday, March 16, 2013 @ 05:11:34 PM

By the way, as far as boosting methods go, I found it extremely efficient to actually play a rescue match on SHRINE! All the routes to medkits are very straight and quick, along with that you can easily collect 3,000 - 5,000 pieces of salvage per game! There is salvage by the medkit turn-in and more salvage on the way to the medkit at the underground tunnel entrance and to the right of the medkit on the cliff. I can do all of this in 9 - 10 minutes EASILY, salvage stops included! Also, don't use the bridge unless you're bringing medkits back, use the cliff-jump over the river right next to the salvage turn-in base! Quick and easy

I'm on level 50 over a million experience points, and i have already 248.000 of salvage. What should i do now? Should i boos my level up to 60 and then buy every character or should i do it now.

In solari fraction there is Samurai soldier that is required to be on Prestige 3 in order to buy. How can i get into prestige 3, where can i check on which prestige am i?

@33 GttheTruth i've send you psn message i can do it some heavy boosting with you this weekend

 Comment #37 by Dragonaxe3
Thursday, March 21, 2013 @ 08:43:03 AM

Hey guys, this is awesome. Just confirmed it works.


You need to have one survivor character not bought yet. Then, go to the character selection screen and go to the Solarii section and put the selector box over the general. Switch back to the survivor side and put the box over a character you can buy, but haven't bought yet. Now hit "Y" and "A" at the same time on the controller. You'll switch to the Solarii side and it will ask if you want to buy the survivor character you were hovering over before. The thing is, let's say you're hovering over a character that costs 3000 and you hit yes on the general, it will take away 10000 instead and actually highlight the locked character.

 Comment #42 by nWo
Friday, March 22, 2013 @ 12:36:53 AM

If you decide to do it alone then this might give you some light:

You can earn 31.000 exp per round in 10 minutes On beach when you grab med-kid, carrying in half way, have to drop it!!! and grab it again. This will give you extra points for short run or medium run. if you just grab med-kit and carry all the way to drop point you will only receive long run points.

So 31000 x 10 minutes

to reach level 60 you have to earn in total 1.771.100 points

1.771.100 / 31.000 equals 60 times on beach. That sixty, runs 10 minutes each. And you have to do it 3 times in order do get into level 60 three times to achieve "Prestige 3" :(

i seriously need a co-partner for this :)

you dont need do achive prestige 3 you can buy all characters if you folow the video. when you achive level 60 you use X and triangule buy the general and other survivle and dont leave that area and this trophie pop. 100% garanted!!

 Comment #44 by Kimaji
Sunday, March 24, 2013 @ 10:49:49 PM

I actually did the X/Triangle trick when I was level 40 because I thought it would leave the General unlocked. It did not leave him unlocked, so when I got to 60 I tried to do it again. It did not let me repurchase him. However, after I unlocked the last character, this trophy still popped! So, I think you can do it at any time and the trophy will still pop after you unlock everything else.

Decent story mode, pretty weak multiplayer (stupid bunny hopping dodging tactics). However, I could deal with that getting the lvl 60 trophy. I CANNOT fathom dedicating my time boosting to Prestige 3 lvl 57 in the most tedious way imaginable for this trophy. Does any1 have any faster suggestions? If not...I officially dislike this games trophy pack - this trophy really ruined a good game. Also, does that X + Y toggle between survivor & solari glitch really work? If it does how does it account toward the weapon upgrades as well??? please help! I'm selling this game back for 100% regardless by Friday so any answers would be appreciated. Thanks!

The "characters only" glitch worked for me, thank God, got my Platinum after such a boring grind to Lv60. If it wasn't for the glitch I would needed to grind around 40,000 extra salvage to get the 170,000 needed for all the upgrades.

This is how it went down for me: purchase every weapon you can on the way to 60. Once you reach level 60, purchase Lara and then as soon as the game saves (TR logo disappears), exit the game through menu using the PS button. Reload the game and just after the trophies finish loading, the Shopaholic trophy pops!

I have actually become pretty good at MP and will be able to buy the General soon (legitimately), but i used to be with the rest of you... it seemed like a LOT of time/work to get a Bronze trophy, wtf? Thank goodness for the glitch!

This achievement is a big pain-in-the-ass. Although Beach is a smaller map, Underground is just easier to maneuver around IMO. I earned about 26,650 XP per round, and it took me around 9-minutes to 9.5-minutes to complete each round with 20 medkits. It took me four days of on/off playing to go from L01 to L60. I definitely put in over 40+ hours of private matches to grind this. Good luck.

 Comment #75 by nWo
Thursday, March 06, 2014 @ 05:29:46 AM

Beach map is the fastest way to boost leveling up alone. You set time for 12 minutes and then you have to drop medkits to earn medium carry and then take it again and go straight to droppoint to earn long carry.

20x medium carry 200 = 4000
20x long carry 500 = 10000
Med Kits recovered = 15000
One man show = 2500
completed round = 300
Gopher = 350
Delivery Boy = 1000

in total per round you earn 33.000 exp by yourself, not as good as grenade kill boosting but if no one is around to help it's still good method.
