Estimated Difficulty: 6/10 (Personal Estimate)

Offline Trophies: 31 (1(P)/3(G)/22(S)/5(B) )

Online Trophies: 0

Approximate amount of time to (P): (Needing info for this, as with how I play the game, I take a rest every so often, so I find it tough to figure this one out)

Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 5

Number of Missable Trophies: None

Glitched Trophies: None

Do cheat codes disable trophies?: No Cheats

Does difficulty affect trophies?: Yes, the game must be played on Commander mode for Platinum and the various boss related trophies.

 

Introduction:

 

Megatron is once again, up to something, and it is your taske to find out what it is and in turn, stop him from achieving his goal, even if it means sacrificing something you hold very dear to your heart.

 

Transformers: Devastation is a simple brawler game consisting of 7 chapters with a boss battle at the end of each chapter against a specific Decepticon (save for Chapter 2 that is). There are also collectibles in this game you must worry about searching for. Though most are pretty straight forward in terms of actually finding them, while others, not so much.

 

Walkthrough:

 

Step one:

Now, if you wish to get the trophies done in terms of quickness, I suggest going straight for Commander difficulty, however, be warned that you will most likely die a fair bit in that mode. Hell, I myself had trouble with Warrior mode, the difficulty bellow this one when I first started the game. But in terms of getting through the game itself, you can pick either difficulty you really feel comfortable with.

 

Do note that if going for Commander mode, you will be also looking out for the various boss related trophies for not taking damage whilst facing off against them, as well as knocking Devastator into a building 3 times, along with Soundwave and his casettes.

 

Do try and aim for the collectibles if you are able to, especially the mysterious letters, as those are not really able to be tracked anywhere in the game.

 

Upon completeing Step One, you will earn the following trophies:

(S) Till All Are One

(S) Supreme Commander

(B) Synthesis 101

(S) Flyswatter

(S) Pedal to the Metal

(B) Urban Landscaping

(S) Roadblock

(S) Surround Sound

(S) Wrecking Crew

(S) HARD-Core

(S) Tripple Changer

(S) Destruction Derby

(S) Don't Look Him in the Eye

(S) Broken Radio

(S) Emperor of Destruction

 

Step Two:

 

Now in this step, you'll need to go back through the game 4 more times, each with the remaining Autobots for their trophies. Along the way, you'll need to focus on the misc fighting related trophies, though they do carry through each playthrough, and by the time you finish off their playthroughs, you should have those trophies completed as well.

 

In Step Two, you will have earned the following trophies:

 

(S) Sting Like a Bee

(S) The Wizard of Iacon

(S) Raging Bull

(S) The King

(B) Full Throttle

(B) (Don't) Hit the Brakes

(B) Hawkeyed

(S) Catch This!

(S) Quick Reflexes

(S) Bullet Storm

 

Step Three:

 

Getting there with this game, this step shall focus on Challenge Mode itself, granted you had gone through the game once on Commander mode to unlock certain challgenges only obtained from Commander mode. Ranking here does not matter, so long as you just complete the challenges.

 

In this step, these trophies shall be yours:

 

(S) Halfway There

(G) All Clear

 

Step Four:

 

The cleanup process is here before you tackle the final step, which I am talking about in terms with any missing trophies you might still have remaining, such as dodging and stricking an enemy 100 times or so. But also, it'll focus on whichever collectibles you have yet to find, luckily, chapter select is your friend in this case.

 

And you shall obtain these ones here:

 

(S) Avid Collector

(G) No Stone Unturned

 

Step Five:

 

The final step, as it is unlikely you would have obtained it by now, though if you have, you may also ignore this step. But this one is best to be left till last, so you can focus everything on this than having to worry about the smaller trophies you were after. In this one, you'll need to focus on earning an SS rank on each of the 7 chapters, which luckily, the game tracks your ranking for you. It essentially relies on the smaller missios you come across where in the top right, it'll tell you which mission you are doing. Aiming for a quick time and not getting hit will be your friend here. Though what actually causes an SS ranking, and not an S ranking can be a bit strange, but my advice is just get in there, murder what you need to rather quickly and try not to get hit, you'll need most of them to be an SS ranking to get the final rank to be an SS and not an S.

 

Last but not least, here, you have earned these:

 

(G) Platinum

(P) All Trophies

Chapter/story related trophies

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/843.jpg

(S) Till All Are One

Complete all chapters on any difficulty.

 

You will start off the game as Optimus Prime, all that is needed is to complete all 7 chapters with any Autobot. But it would be best to stick with Optimus so you are able to obtain his trophy as well.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/3c8.jpg

(S) Supreme Commander

Completed all chapters on any difficulty using Optimus Prime

 

This, along with the other character related trophies, require you to complete all 7 chapters with a specific Autobot. Do note that right at the end, you will face off against Megatron for a second time as Optimus Prime, no matter if you are after another Autobot's trophy, that wont count against you.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/e9c.jpg

(B) Urban Landscaper

In chapter 1, on difficulty COMMANDER or greater, knocked Devastator into a building 3 times.

 

In chapter one, you will come across Devastator twice, and for those who are not sure who he is, he is the big Combiner. All you have to do is knock him into any building 3 times. It will count if you restart the checkpoint multiple times in case you either end up defeating him before then, or if you end up dying. Though to do so, you need to be able to stagger him to he falls to one knee near a building, then attack him a few times and if done correctly, he will stagger backwards, and if near a building, he should get knocked into it, shown by him hitting the building and falling flat first onto his stomach.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/d34.jpg

(S) Wrecking Crew

In chapter 1, on difficulty COMANDER or greater, defeated Devastator without taking damage.

 

Much like the Urban Landscaping trophy, you will come across Devastator twice, all that is needed is to defeat him without taking any form of damage at all. Luckily enough, you can restart the checkpoint to redo the fight if you get hit.

 

Devastator himself, has a few attacks. One being where he will attempt to grab you, but you are able to dodge out of the way of that. The next move will be him slamming the ground a few times towards you, luckily you can find out where he will land by the red circle on the ground.

 

Once his health reaches half, he will switch his hands out for drills instead, to which you will then need to worry about the drills instead of him grabbing you. But once he is defeated without any form of damage to you, the trophy will pop.

 

Note that if you get hit in the second phase, you can restart, it will put you back to the start of the second phase and it wont count against you getting hit... so long as you finish him off without getting hit.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/bc9.jpg

(S) Flyswatter

Finished the lift battle in chapter 2 without taking damage from Insecticons.

 

This lift battle they're refering to is a long corridor while you're on a moving platform itself. This fight is split into two sections, the first being a turret section. All you need to do here is take control of the turret an just fire, watching out for any Insecticons that land on the platform and any incoming blue electrical orbs (which you are able to shoot to disrupt).

 

The second section, your turret will be destroyed and you'll be up against a larger Insecticon. He has only two phases himself, that he'll switch between constantly. The first phase will be on the ground, to which it'll be in your best instest to focus dodge and strike him.

His other phase is him transforming and taking flight, dodge his attacks, using a focus dodge if you can and use your gun on him for damage. Keep it up and he'll soon be destroyed and the trophy will pop.

Also... try not to fall off the damn platform.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/121.jpg

(S) HARD-Core

In chapter 2, on difficulty COMMANDER or greater, destoyed the shielding without taking damage

 

At the end of chapter 2, you will need to break the shielding surrounding the core in the Proudstar. It is mostly simple enough, but what you will need to watch out for most is enemies shooting at you. Change into vehicle mode and drive towards the sheilding, dodging the incoming purple sheilded barriers and use a rush attack on the barrier around the core itself, shatter the purple barrier, allowing you to land in a few hits before you'll need to rinse and repeat. once the core is destroyed, the trophy will pop.

Do note that the Insecticon fight just before does not count, so you can die in that fight and it will not count against you, for those that might be worried.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/a59.jpg

(S) Tripple Changer

In chapter 3, on difficulty COMMANDER or greater, defated Blitzwing without taking damage.

 

Blitzwing is essentially a tripple changer, as the trophy title implies, able to change into both a tank and a jet. Now do note that unlize other small bosses, attacking Blizwing will not make him stagger, he will still follow throw with an attack, such as a punch., so dodging is your friend is battle.

Once he is down to three quarters health, he will use both his jet form and his tank form in battle too. His jet form allows him to at least drop down missiles onto the field, encasing you in ice. His tank form will blast and charge at you, so again, keep up the dodging, attacking often.

In his robot form, it's best to attack him, then dodge when he's about to swing his punch at you and attack him some more. Do note that even though it'll probably only happen, he may stagger, giving you a bigger chance to land a combo and vehicle move on him.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/a6b.jpg

(S) Roadblock

In chapter 4, defeated motormaster while racing him.

 

After the bridge mission, you will see a cutscene where Starscream looses flight control and in turn, looses the core. Once it is over, you'll be racing Motormaster to the tower. Motormaster himself is a truck, much like Optimus is, your goal is to defeat him while racing him, as the name implies.

To do so, I suggest racing towards him, closing in with a rush attack and in turn, do not let up until he is down. He is easier to defeat here than the boss battle against him at the tower.

Once he is down, keep going as he will eventually regain conciousness and will be on the move towards the tower as well. Though the trophy will pop once you take him down, it just does not mean you need to stop, nor is it safe to do so, as if he reaches the tower first, the mission will be a fail.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/cf5.jpg

(S) Destruction Derby

In chapter 4, on difficulty COMMANDER or higher, defeated Menasor without taking damage.

 

Menasor is another Combiner, but a bit more ferocious as he has a sword you must watch out for. His attacks can be a bit harder to predict though, but easy enough to dodge out of the way. One attack he has that does not involve his sword, is him spliting into his five vehicle forms for a quick sweep or the surrounding area before reforming again.

However, once he gets down to half health, his sword will get struck with lightning, therefore, giving his sword electric properties, which in turn, can make the battle that much more frustrating. The other thing he can do, though if he does it or not is another thing, is cause the wind to pick you up off the ground, leaving you that much more vulnerable, though I believe you are able to move in the air if you need to dodge his attack, but will be rather difficult.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/429.jpg

(S) Don't Look Him in the Eye

In chapter 5, on difficulty COMMANDER or greater, defeated Shockwave without taking damage.

 

Shockwave is a more tougher foe to deal with, as well as annoying. He will constantly fire a laser beam at you, as well as shockwaves, though they are more simple to dodge, but be careful, if you're hit by his laser beam, you'll be stunned for a moment.

Once his health has been depleted to about half, he'll cover most of the arena in a laser beam, reflecting off panels. Though it can be stopped by attacking him while he is in gun form. The other thing to watch out for in this point is, he will clone himself, though luckily the real Shockwave will be noticeable by his clones having a darker color scheme than himself.

(S) Surround Sound

In chapter 6, on difficulty COMMANDER or greater, defeated Soundwave without defeating any cassettes.

 

Please refer to "Broken Radio" for more information.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/892.jpg

(S) Broken Radio

In chapter 6, on difficulty COMMANDER or greater, defeated Soundwave without defeating any cassettes.

 

This one, along with the trophy "Surround Sound" can be achieved together, though if you want to split it up into two goes, you may. But essentially, how Soundwave works is that he will have two cassettes out at once, usually Laserbeak is one and Rumble being the other. Do note that if you take down one of his cassettes, he will bring out another between Buzzsaw, Frenzy and Ravage.

Laserbeak and Buzzsaw are the flyers, working like Seekers would, doing a fly-by shooting. Rumble and Frenzy will cause the arena floor to collapse in front of them, but luckily, there is forewarning as to which area will collapse... but not into an abyss. Ravage on the other hand, is essentially his attacker, working like an attack dog would in this case.

Soundwave himself can be a pain to get close to at times, as one more, which wont hurt you, will just knock you back, my suggestion in getting close to him is go into vehicle mode and use a rush attack, though it may not always work, as he may still knock you back. But once you are able to hit him, he will fight back, using close quarters combat.

However, once his health is down to half health, he will start to fire his own soundwaves at you, so essentially just dodge those.

If you find it too tough to take Soundwave down without getting hit and without his cassettes doing a number on you, then you can split it up instead if need be by either taking out his cassettes without getting hit and in turn, taking Soundwave down without getting hit and then going through the chapter again by taking damage in the fight and focusing everything on Soundwave... or by reversing the order, however you feel comfortable doing so.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/34c.jpg

(S) Emperor of Destruction

In chapter 7, on difficulty COMMANDER or greater, defeated Megatron without taking damage.

 

This is the final fight against Megatron, he fights mostly like his previous fights, but without the shield and instead, he has his energy metor hammer, which he will swing around. You can try and dodge it, but do not go in for an attack, as he will still be swinging and unless you are able to dodge without getting hit still, your best bet is to keep your distance.

Be wanred too, as in this fight, he will summon three collumns of fire as well, so try not to run into those. So all that is needed really is to keep on the attack, as he takes a beating for sure.

There is one other thing that can happen, though I am uncertain as to how it happened, in that Megatron in his tank form, and yourself in your vehicle form will have a mini face off, to which you will need to tap either circle or square to fill the gauge up... otherwise he'll essentially run you over in his tank form and damage you.

 

Combat related trophies:

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/b0a.jpg

(B) Full Throttle

Defeated 100 enemies with Vehicle/Dino Attacks.

 

At the end of your combo, you have a chance to to your Vehicle Attack, which is a small, powerful slam attack in your vehicle mode, such as Optimus will charge at his opponent while in truck form, but only after say, a basic 4 hit combo, to which your character with give you a small window of oppertunity to press the L1 button.

Simply defeat 100 enemies for this trophy to unlock, which you may or may not get in your first playthrough, but luckily, it counts across all playthroughs, and in Challenge Mode.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/e7c.jpg

(B) (Don't) Hit the Brakes

Defeated 100 enemies with rush attacks.

 

Rush attacks are when you are driving around in vehicle mode and you press the square button, to which you launch yourself in a sliding motion with an uppercut to strike an enemy. You'll need to defeat 100 enemies this way for it to unlock. Note that there are enemies with shields that you will need to use rush attacks on to break their shielding, and depending on how strong you are, can either one shot them, or damage them.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/144.jpg

(S) Pedal to the Metal

Used Focus 100 times.

 

Focus is essentially when you time your dodging just right, causing things to go into slow motion, giving you a better edge against your opponent. Simply activate it 100 times for it to count. This one should come more naturally for you, as it will be essential in your Commander mode in not dying and not getting hit for the boss related trophies.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/8a8.jpg

(S) Quick Reflexes

After dodging, quickly countered with a melee attack 100 times.

 

First, to do this, you need to buy the Reversal skill from the Ark. Next, you need to activate Focus by dodging and hold down either square or triangle and your character should say something and in turn, will attack their opponent.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/65d.jpg

(S) Bullet Storm

After dodging, quickly countered with a ranged attack 100 times.

 

Now the first part is the same as "Quick Relexes", in that you need to buy the Reversal skill from the Ark. Next, when you get shot at at the very least, dodge before getting hit and quick press L2, if done correctly, your character will jump to the side, gun drawn, allowing you to fire a few shot in slow motion. But if you go into Focus, then it wont count.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/322.jpg

(B) Hawkeyed

Preformed 100 successful headshots.

 

You will most likely get this in the end without trying, so long as you use your gun often. Just shooting your opponent should be enough, as the bullets on the blasters as such seem to aim for headshots on their own, though sometimes being successful, sometimes not.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/236.jpg

(S) Catch This!

Used parrying to catch the following from an enemy: a boulder, a missile and both drill types.

 

Firstly, you need the skill from the Ark, once purchased, you'll need to find the following enemies: Scavanger, a Seeker (or any jet should suffice) and of course, Devastator. There is also the drill Constructicon (whose name escapes me, so someone may need to remind me who he is so I can fix this).

Scrapper is the one that flings boulders at you, he's the bulldozer. In chapter one you face off against him and his buddy, just get rid of his buddy and get some distance between you and Scrapper. He'll get ready to fling a boulder at you, the ground turning red for where it'll land. Now to catch it, you need to time it just right by tilting forward on the left analogue stick, if done correctly, you will end up catching the boulder instead of being hit by it.

As for a missile, options are a Seeker, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker or Blitzwing (him in particular is able to fire it in tank form as far as I know). The same applies here for the boulder, in that you tilt forward just before it hits you to catch it.

For the drills, first is the Constructicon whom if you get enough distance from, will fire his small drill at you. For Devastator, you need to get his health down to half then distance yourself.

Once you catch each of those, the trophy should unlock.

Another great area is in Challenge Mode mission 2 where you face off against the Constructicons and then Devastator himself, so you may try catching the various object required there, save for said missile.

Collectibles:

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/478.jpg

(S) Avid Collector

Collected half of the collectibles.

 

See "No Stone Unturned" for more details.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/a9b.jpg

(G) No Stone Unturned

Collected all collectible items.

 

Collectibles are what they are. They come in 5 forms, flags, Kremzeeks, audio logs, drones and mysterious letters.

The Flags, Kremzeeks and Drones are the easier ones to track, as it tells you which ones you are missing. For the Flags, you essentially need to shoot them and that's it... though it's prefered your character has a sniper rifle equipped for the more distant ones.

Kremzeeks are small, bouncing orange things. Simply get close to them and once it bounces in front of you, press circle to collect it... don't worry though, they don't run off, they have a set patteren they follow.

Drones are essentially Laserbeak flying around, all you need to do is get your sniper rifle out (it's best as most are distant) and snipe it out of the sky. Again, it follows a set path, so if need be, you can wait for it to circle back around before taking a shot if you missed first time around.

Audio logs you need to pick up. There are 30 of them in total to collect, so there is some way to track them, but not where they are located. The logs are usually found along the way to your destination.

The Mystersious Letters, they are well, letters that you simply run into in order to collect them. But I'm afraid there's no way to track which ones you're missing... but luckily enough that it does tell you when you have collected them all, so you're not running around searching for something that's no longer there.

Once you found them all, the trophy will then unlock.

 

Challenge Mode:

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/49c.jpg

(S) Halfway There

Completed half of all Challenge Mode missions on any difficulty.

 

See "All Clear" for more details.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/e0b.jpg

(G) All Clear

Completed all Challenge Mode missions on any difficulty.

 

From the main menu, head into Challenge Mode. If you have completed the game on Commander mode, most should be unlocked, only some unlocking when the previous mission is completed. For this, you only need to complete them, do not worry about rank here, so long as you complete them, earning whichever rank, you will be fine.

To save yourself much hassle, you can go through on Scout difficulty to get them over and done with. The only ones that may require a bit more thought are the driving segments, and the two mazes they present you with, the mazes in particular may take a few tries, just to understand where to go in the end without running out of time.

Once all 50 of them are completed, you'll earn the trophy, and obtain "Halfway There" in the process.

 

Misc trophy:

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/06d.jpg

(B) Synthesis 101

Synthesized 10 weapons.

 

To do synthesize weapons, head to the Ark and to "Synthesize". Just put together 10 weapons and this trophy is yours. Just remember that it does cost credits to synthesize a weapon, but not much. You'll need at least 10-20 weapons for this trophy.

 

SS Rankings:

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/3719/0cc.jpg

(G) Platinum

Completed all chapters, earning the highest ranking, on COMMANDER difficulty or greater.

 

First and foremost, the highest ranking you are able to obtain is SS. It is calculted by how well you do within the game's missions within the chapter. Obviously the higher the ranking with the mission, the better the chance at getting an SS Ranking for said chapter. But to pull this off is another matter entirely, as my advice I can give you is completed Commander difficulty, go through the next difficulty as best you can, just to get higher ranking weapons and level your character up

Everything will help in the end so you can at least finish the mission as quick as you can, not getting hurt and to try and use combos, vehicle attacks and the likes and if done correctly, you'll see the ranking in the end.

Luckily the game does track your ranking too from Chapter Select, so when you pick a chapter, you are able to see which ranking you have for said chapter.

Okay, guide is up. I don't have a fancy picture myself for the guide, because well, I suck at that sort of stuff (and I not have the program to put it together anyway). I am certain that it's fine, save for the time to platinum required, if another can help fill me in... as well as the name of that Constructicon that uses drills whom isn't Devastator, then I can fix that up.

 

But yeah, first guide I made for the site... even though I myself, am working on the game still, it's essentially what I know of the game from what I've done so far, such as no damage, Challenge Mode and the likes.

 

Course any suggestions and the likes are very much appreciated :)

I have a bunch of info for you when I get home from work.

I *strongly* recommend not tackling commander difficulty until you've had at least a run on one of the lower difficulties. Trying to tackle commander when you're starting out at level 1 is an exercise in frustration at best. Playing on the lower difficulties first will allow you to level up more, get a feel for the game, and learn the flow of the levels. I'm sure there are people who have no problem jumping right into commander, but most players are just going to get their heads taken off if they try.

 

Do not even bother trying to go for SS ranks or no-damage runs on Commander until you've actually beaten commander mode, and preferably after you've beaten Magnus mode. Being over-levelled for another Commander run will make things much, much easier; you'll spend less time beating Magnus mode then going back to Commander than you will ramming your head against the wall going for the no-damage runs when you're not ready for them.

 

After you've beaten commander mode once, all bosses can be defeated by making it to the 2nd part of each battle, then (after the very short cutscene) using one of the 100% power boost items and an Ultimate attack. My memory is a bit fuzzy, but I think a couple of the early battles can be done by using a power boost/Ultimate attack right from the get-go. I just can't remember which ones.

 

For the battle where you have to knock Devastator into a building 3 times:

 

Wait for him to do a superkick, then go after the plant leg. This will drop him to one knee. Then unload on his head when he's on one knee, finishing the combo off with a rush attack. This will sometimes send him flying backwards. Note that he doesn't fly backwards every time you do this, and if you don't hit the edge of the battle area (for example, if he lands in the middle of the field), it doesn't count. There's also no visual indication that you've actually hit the buildings. This can be done in either one of the two fights where you battle Devastator in Chapter 1, and you can reload from checkpoint to do it again and again until the trophy pops; progress carries through battles, playthroughs, and reloads.

 

In the Challenges, the 2nd challenge is battling all the Constructicons. You can use this challenge to earn the "Catch This!" trophy. I suggest doing this battle twice: The first time, eliminate all the Constructicons except for the one that turns into the bulldozer, then back off. Eventually, he'll start chucking boulders at you. During the 2nd one, kill all the ones except for the one that turns into a giant driller. Again, back off and he'll eventually shoot his drill at you. Once you catch that and kill him off, you can battle Devastator, and during the 2nd part of that battle he'll shoot his drill at you.

 

There are plenty of other challenges where you can battle Blitzwing and he'll shoot a missile at you, but I cannot remember exactly which ones he appears in and I've already sold the game. But just pick a challenge he's in and go for it. You can do this on the easiest difficulty.

 

For the collectibles guides, there are videos out there that tell you where the collectibles are. I'm not sure what the site's rules are with regards to using someone else's videos, but here you go:

Yeah, I know that it is a pain for sure, I mean the no damage run I am going to try, but if I can't for the bosses, then I'll just get through it and come back for them afterwards, when I'm better equipped.

 

Though I am imagining with Devastator, to not be too over leveled so to be able to knock him into a building three times without killing him straight away.

 

And yeah, I'll put in the info for the challenges too... forgot about them when I was typing it up. Had posted it before I headed off to bed is all. As for the videos, I'll leave it be for now, as I too am unsure on the rules about them.

 

Can you recall if Megatron needed to be beaten both times flawlessly for it to count? Or just the first part?

You don't have to do it 3 times all at once. You can do it once, reload the checkpoint, then do it again, then reload, then do it again. Or you can do it in 3 separate playthroughs. Or with 3 different characters. The progress for the trophy carries through reloads and playthroughs.

I honestly could not tell you. I used the ultimate attacks both times to finish him off so the battles lasted about two seconds each.

That's what I was meaning with Devastator, as in, if you do too much damage against him and end up beating him before you even get to knock him into a building.

 

As for Megatron, I'll try later on when I'm a bit stronger in the game so I can do good damage against him and see if it unlocks after you beat him down first or not.

Well, glad someone wrote a guide for this. My only advice is to delete a backspace so the trophy tiles and image are by each other, fix a few paragraph spaces and line break them with enter, and also remove your signature from each of your posts.

 

You remove your signature by un-checking the "Show your signature" box in advance edit. It's found under the additional options.

Ah thanks, I'll get to that shortly. As the backspace thing, you mean the image and then if it's a a gold, to have it right next to it, instead of underneath the image? Just so I know what you're getting at is all :)

might want to fix this, you have the same description for Both trophies. I know is No Damage and the other is Cassettes.

 

aside from some tweaking here and there looks good.

 

EDIT nothing Fancy but here is a small banner you can use:

why so many playthroughs? 5 ? what is this a metal gear game?

 

You have to beat the game with all 5 characters. It is pretty boring since they all feel weak compared to Optimus.. especially Grimlock. The game is pretty short at least. It felt pretty similar in its requirements and mechanics to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for me.

(S) Destruction Derby

In chapter 4, on difficulty COMMANDER or higher, defeated Menasor without taking damage.

 

Menasor is another Combiner, but a bit more ferocious as he has a sword you must watch out for. His attacks can be a bit harder to predict though, but easy enough to dodge out of the way. One attack he has that does not involve his sword, is him spliting into his five vehicle forms for a quick sweep or the surrounding area before reforming again.

However, once he gets down to half health, his sword will get struck with lightning, therefore, giving his sword electric properties, which in turn, can make the battle that much more frustrating. The other thing he can do, though if he does it or not is another thing, is cause the wind to pick you up off the ground, leaving you that much more vulnerable, though I believe you are able to move in the air if you need to dodge his attack, but will be rather difficult.

 

About this trophy, please note that you can dodge in the air too, using R1, and it can do wonders if the wind traps you between him and a corner.

Not that I plan to plat this. 5 playthroughs is a little too much for me.

 

Playthroughs on Scout take like an hour if you rush through it. By the time I played Grimlock my weapons one/two shot any enemy including bosses; you need at least an A or S weapon and a little synthesization but you will be drowning in weapons by the end.

 

This game is mainly about the SS Commander run, all the "no damage" are easy since you go way beyond the bosses levels.
