Intro - Greetings and salutations, heres my first attempt at a trophy guide and road map, so be gentle with me!!

You play sheriff Rango.

This is an EASY game, completely linear with 9 levels.95% platform with some riding sections when your either on a road runner or a bat.


Stage 1......just play the game and enjoy it!! Its a bit of fun and you get a plat out of it !!!


First things first....stars!! There are several trophies relating to the number of stars you collect.You collect them by killing critters and smashing crates and barrels.The stars can be used to buy assists to you, your side arm and other funky things.

However the first thing you need to upgrade are the 2 perks that give you additional stars for doing the affore mentioned actions.There are 3 levels to each perk, upgrading these 2 as fast as possible will decrease the amount of playing time needed to hit the 200,00 total you need to get all star related collecting trophies! Check the trophy guide for more details!!!

Next upgrade your weapon ammo capacity and reload speed.

Other perks are suplementory and really only needed on your sencond play through.

Each level as 2 different collectibles a mining point, looks like a pile of shiney rubble, and a giant gold fish bowl complete with giant gold fish obviously!!There is a set amount on each level for you to find!Dont kill your self trying in your first play as once the game is completed there is a level select and they are quite obvious when your playing, they aint no feathers like in Assassins Creed!!!!!!!

Play the game on hard straight off, i use the word "hard" in its loosest possible terminology 'cos this game aint hard!! The medium and hard game finishing trophies stack so saves you a job! But saying that, the amount of stars you need as mentioned above will probably warrant 2 whole play throughs!!! So its up to you!


Stage 2:

This is where you pick up that pesky bowl you missed, and start farming stars!!

Check out the trophy guide regarding red,white and blue sevens trophy as i put all the star collecting tips there!!

By now you've got a load of stars so its time to go for the weapon usage trophies, you'll have enough stars to go meet the dodgy old crow and purchase the perks that increase the duration of the temporary power ups you get for breaking open the powers ups crates!


Stage 3:Crack open a beer and admire your newly aquired plat!!!

Additionally you can rack up approx 10,000 stars when you've maxed out the additional star perks for destruction and killing!!

Complete Rodent Clan




Clatto Verata N(B)


Complete Zombie Invasion




Why Can't We All Just Get Along?(B)


Complete Alien Showdown




Hero of the West(S)


Complete the game in hard mode




Three Sevens(B)


Collect 1000 Sheriff Stars see red,white and blue trophy




White Sevens(B)


Collect 100 000 Sheriff Stars see red white and blue trophy




Red, White & Blue Sevens(S)


Collect 200 000 Sheriff Stars - stars!!! You collect stars by killing or smashing(a few mining and getting bullseyes but not that many!) First thing you should be doing when playing the game is buy the perks that increase number of stars you get from doing these actions from the shady looking crow you meet on a regular basis.Each perk has three levels and considerably increase the number of stars you get form either action!!

Another way to get additional stars is from your kill multiplier! Every 3rd kill increases your multipler to a max of 20, if you get hit it zero's.The longer you can keep your multiplier for the more stars you'll get from killing!!

Whe you collect stars they appear in a display top right!!

TIP OF THE DAY - You dont need to have 200,00 in our inventory to get the trophy, there is a rolling count, so you can spend what you like with the crow!! My 100,00 hit during my second playthrough.At that point i spent everything i ad which virtually maxed out all my perks so i knew i only had to hit 100,00 for this bad boy to top.Dont be surprised if this your last trophy before the plat!!

They Got a Pill For That(B)


Shoot Bad Bill's dynamite bundle before he throws it in Water Train - He'll stand in front of you on a raised platform throwing tnt at you whilst your getting slapped by his compadres.Dont use auto lock as it hits him not the tnt!

Thats the lot.....i think?

As its my first trophy guide and roadmap let me know where i've made an ass of myself and i'll correct it.

Any comments good or bad are most welcome!!

But if they're bad i'll find where you live and burn down your house!!


On that note i'd like to thank my misses for having an extra child in the house...me,my assistant manager in work who lent me a fiver so i could buy some smokes earlier cos i ran out and finally.....Hmmm.

Well i'll tell you a story....well a statement really, the best trophy guide and roadmap i've read on these here forums has to be the Dead Rising 2 guide by the legend that is Lord Maim.This game obviously hasn't got the depth of that monster of a game, but the dedication and time spent that old LM poured into that sort of inspired me to do this.I aint no fanboy, dont get me wrong,but credit where credit is due!!

You need to wait until the game has been released before you post a guide for it. Also, the majority of the guide needs to be complete and there are still quite a few trophies here with no explanation.


This will be closed. Once the game is out and your guide is finished let us know and we can reopen it so you can update it.

The game is out though right? I just rented it from LoveFilm and it's dispatched so I assume it's out.


Anyways how is the game? Difficulty wise where does it rate along side, Megamind?


Yes, they apparently moved the EU release date back a week, so I've reopened it.


However, the guide needs to be completed soon as many trophies are missing explanations and the trophy tiles need to be switched to the site versions once they are loaded.

Hi guys, just a quick question... I`m currently on the last level of RANGO, (almost completed it ~ then i just need to grind for a few more stars.. (get that sweet platinum)..!!

Anyway, i wanted to ask; im currently completing it on the so called "Hard" mode.. lol.. now the problem i have, is that i have missed 1 fish on lvl 4 & 1 fish on lvl 5..

So will i still get the gold trophy if i just continue & complete, then replay the levels & collect the last few collectibles..!? or does it all have to be done in the same playthrough..!?

any info would be greatly appreciated

thanks in advance,

Wow how are you guys doing the collections in the levels so quickly without a guide? I just finished Land of the Giants missing 2 mining points and 3 gold fish bowls lol, are they well hidden or am I just going blind :D


Edit > also can anyone recommend a good place to grind the 200k stars trophy? Somewhere with a lot of boxes you can suicide next to or something?

This has been reopened for over a day but I don't see much progress. Tiles are loaded to the site but haven't been used in the guide, plus many of the trophies still have no explanation. Therefore this is being closed again.


Please take a look at the trophy guide walkthrough if you're unsure of the process for posting and formatting a guide. Thanks.
