Introduction

 

Hello Everyone, this is my first trophy guide so please correct me if I need to fix anything. As of posting this guide Truck Racer is a European Only PSN Game. This game is pretty straight forward, it's a truck racing game hence the name "truck racer." As for trophies it is a very simple driving game that has a few basic track which have alternate routes throughout the 'Championship mode' which is basically the story mode.

 

Walkthrough

 

Step 1: Complete the story mode

Don't worry about any trophies except for Like a real trucker. All the trophies in this game should come naturally except for Like a real trucker!, Crasher and Truck Armageddon so please refer to the guide for those trophies. As for all the other trophies, they are very easily able to be cleaned up once the championship mode is complete.

 

Step 2: Online

 

Online is very simple, all you need to do is complete (not win) 25 races and win 5 races in a row (please see the guide for more details)

 

For all of the online trophies I highly recommend you find a Boosting partner as it will make the trophies very fast and easy to obtain. If you have a Boosting partner, go to private match and choose the training track (because it is the shortest) and set the laps to 1, this will make things super quick!!

 

Boosting partners can be found in the boosting thread here: LINK

 

Step Three: Clean-up

If you do not have all of the trophies by now then get those last few out of the way so you can get your shiny new http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/site/icons/trophy_platinum.png!

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/240.jpg You're a truck racer (P)

Win every Truck Racer trophy.

Get all the other 50 trophies to add this Platinum to you collection.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/5F1.jpg 1st for the 1st time (B)

Come in 1st place in an event race.

 

This should come after you have won your first race.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/C0B.jpg It needs to race (B)

Race with a truck you bought.

 

This is very simple. After you have won a few race you should have enough money to buy a truck, once you have then win a race with it.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/2E0.jpg An unexpected failure (B)

Have an engine breakdown in the last 50 meters of the race.

 

This can be done at anytime during the last lap of a race (it needs to be a race, not a time trial etc.) just crash yourself into a wall right near the finish line until the red bar in the bottom right is gone.

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/937.jpg Good, but not good enough (B)

Mount the podium 15 times in the championship.

 

This will come naturally as you progress through the game.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/159.jpg Incredible comeback! (B)

Win a race starting from the back of the grid.

 

This should come after your first race.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/62A.jpg Recorder (B)

Post a time in all the Time Attack races.

 

This one is a little tricky. First complete every race in championship mode, then simply go to Quick Race, choose Boulder Harbor - Track A. Select your vehicle and time attack. Set the race to one lap then complete the race.

 

Boulder Harbor - Track A is the only race not used in the championship; this is a really nice way to avoid a lot of unnecessary work.

 

Thanks to iTz-iConZz-Be for this tip.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/2F3.jpg Better than you! (B)

Beat your own record in an event race.

 

This may come naturally but if it doesn't, just finish a race then retry it.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/E58.jpg Super drift (B)

Drift for over 5 seconds.

 

Drifting is done by taking corners sharply, you will know you are doing it correctly when the yellow bar in the bottom right of the screen begins to fill up. This trophy seems to be cumulative so no need to worry about it.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/CBA.jpg Survivor (B)

Limp across the finish line with every part of the truck's bodywork damaged.

 

This may come naturally but if it doesn't then hit your car into walls as frequently as you can then go across the finish line, you don't need to win the race.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/CA0.jpg Crasher (B)

Crash 5 of your opponents' trucks.

 

See Truck Armageddon

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/A30.jpg Truck Armageddon (B)

Crash 15 of your opponents' trucks.

 

This is probably the hardest trophy in the game; however, there is a very simple way to get it. All you need to do is go into Quick race and set up splitscreen and wreck your other controller, this may be able to be done with just switching your controller from first to second player if you do not own two controllers but I am not 100% sure. Alternatively, if you have a boosting partner, you can also do this trophy in multiplayer when going for the 25 wins trophy.

 

Please do not try doing this trophy against the A.I because they are very frustrating when trying to get this trophy. The A.I. have a lot of health, so crashing them will take a long time. Also, if you crash an A.I. driver into a wall, the game will sometimes not count as you crashing them. Basically the game thinks that the A.I. character is crashing themselves so it does not reward you with a crash.

 

Note: You will know you have successfully crashed an opponent when a white skull appears on your screen.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/B31.jpg Street Hawk (B)

Fill the Nitro bar and then use it all in one go without hitting anything.

 

You can get this easily on most tracks, just find a long straight away to boost down.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/D0C.jpg No mistake (B)

Do a complete lap without touching the decor.

 

Just don't hit anything and the trophy should be yours!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/D16.jpg Like a real trucker! (B)

Finish an Expert race in a truck that has all of its original parts.

 

This trophy is possibly missable!

 

I'm not sure if this is missable or not but to be on the safe side make sure that you do not buy any upgrades for at least 1 of the six purchasable trucks. If you do happen to buy an upgrade try putting all of the stock parts back on and then going for this trophy (stock parts are the first in every category i.e. engine, brakes etc.). I tried attempting this in the second to last set of races and it did not unlock for me but when I tried it in the very last set, it popped. Note: Make sure you are doing a race and not a time trial or demolition etc.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/5B7.jpg Vroom (B)

Finish the training.

 

Congrats this is your first trophy for this game!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/55F.jpg The King of shopping (B)

Make your 1st purchase.

 

Just buy one upgrade. This is found under the "garage" section before you are about to start a race.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/2E9.jpg Engine Down! (B)

Have an engine failure during a race.

 

Just crash your car until the red bar in the bottom right is depleted.

Create a paint set.

 

In the Upgrade section for your truck go to the bottom and select color, then the very top choice is your own color so click that then pick any of the colors and you should get the trophy.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/32E.jpg Rome wasn't built in a day (B)

Restart a race you haven't finished on the podium for yet.

 

As soon as you start a race, just restart it then finish the race.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/350.jpg Fine tuning (B)

Complete a race with a truck which has no more original parts.

 

After your first few sets of races you should have earned enough money to purchase all the different upgrades.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/925.jpg Quality Assurance (B)

Drive all of the trucks in the championship.

 

Buy all the different trucks and then just finish a race with them. Note: This needs to be done during the Championship mode and you do not need to win the race to earn this trophy.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/56E.jpg Golden Boy (B)

Earn 500,000 credits.

 

See Wealthy Man

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/461.jpg Wealthy Man (G)

Earn 1,000,000 credits.

 

You will get this naturally once you have come first on every race event in Championship mode.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/78C.jpg D-Grade (B)

Engine class D purchased.

 

See A-Grade

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/164.jpg A-Grade (S)

Engine class A purchased.

 

After you start to win more sets and races you will unlock more upgrades for your trucks. After a certain number of wins you will be able to purchase the different engine grades. Note: Buying the "A" engine will not pop the other trophies, you must buy one of each.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/4AD.jpg I want it all (B)

Buy all of the trucks.

 

Once you have earned enough money, go to "switch trucks" section and buy them all. Money is not a problem in this game and you will have more than enough by the end of the championship mode to unlock this trophy. You should be able to buy all of the trucks halfway through the Championship mode, if you do not then save money by not buying upgrades for about 5 races.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/2329/0D8.jpg A bronze championship (B)

Win a bronze medal in every event.

 

See A platinum championship

This can easily be boosted, see the roadmap for fast boosting. If you do not have a boosting partner, then drive well because it will be challenging to get 5 first place wins in a row. If trying to go for this legit, remember to try and drift as long as possible to gain boost, and when it comes to boosting, try to only use it on straight-aways so you can minimize your chances of crashing.

Hey, nice attempt at a first trophy guide. I may pick this game up down the line (That is, when the price isn't too steep.) You need to be a little more descriptive on what each trophy entails and how to obtain it, though. I know most of it is pretty self-explanatory but even little things like redirecting people to the boosting thread can be beneficial. I suggest notifying a member of the guide team about your guide here: PS3Trophies.org - Staff They will then do an editorial sweep for you, to rectify any mistakes.

Yep I already have done that and terminator will be reviewing it tomorrow for me :dance:

For the trophy "Rome wasn't built in a day - Restart a race you haven't finished on the podium for yet"

 

you say "As soon as you start a race, just restart it then finish the race."

 

This didn't work for me, i had to finish the race below the top 4, and then press square to restart that race and win it

First thing, thank you for the roadmap! I'm a bit unsure if i should start the game or not, exactly how many races there's in an event? Also how many time trials there's in total/ needed for the plat? It's a bit of strange how this plat is regarded all around the web, some say the trials are super easy others that the trials are super hard!

If I remember correctly, only one, except for the last in every chapter with 3 or 5 in latter ones. Mind you, each event is very short, so it's not to bad.

I completed my platinum a little under 5 hours, with a good boosting partner, by the in game timer, and the loading were fast, so you can plat it under 8h even if you are bad in the game.

About the time trials, the problem is not the time trials per see, but the handling in dirt roads. I can't imagine how some people found it really hard, but if you are having a hard time doing it, customize a truck and setup it for dirt racing and try it later.

 

Also, I don't think it's TOO bad, the game has that cheap 90's arcade racing game feel.
