Welcome to 007 Legends! This game is the fourth 007 title to be launched on the Playstation 3. The game consists of 5 operations each taken from their respective movie. The operations are Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, License To Kill, Die Another Day and Moonraker. Noticeably, at least one movie from every bond actor was placed in this game. Goldfinger - Sean Connery, O.H.M.S.S. - George Lazenby, License To Kill - Timothy Dalton, Die Another Day- Pierce Brosnan & Moonraker - Roger Moore. This doesn't really matter because the star of this game is current bond actor, Daniel Craig.
The game is a First-Person Shooter that uses a simple, yet not so convenient, cover system. You also receive gadgets in every mission, which can help you progress or uncover secret items. The game itself is very simplistic and easy to dive into. If you are a bond fan, then you are in for a real treat. If you are looking for a platinum then buckle up because, while this Platinum isn't among the hardest, it is one that requires time & patience. Good Luck!
Step 1 - Playthrough Campaign on 007 & Classic Difficulty
I highly recommend that you start right off the bat with 007 difficulty and classic difficulty. 007 is the highest difficulty in the game but is actually easy. If you ever played Veteran in Call of Duty, this is an easier version of that. Classic difficulty is the health system. Modern difficulty works like today's games where you take damage, but will regain health after you take cover for awhile. Classic Difficulty plays like the old First Person Shooters, such as Goldeneye back on Nintendo 64, where you must collect health packs to regain health and finding body armor provides you with a second health bar. Playing on Classic Difficulty will bag you 007. Playing on 007 difficulty will not only net you the Secret Agent trophy along with each campaign completion, but along the way you will most likely complete 3 of the 007 trials for Above and Beyond a 00. Usually if you remain stealthy and don't trigger any alarms in the stealth sections, you should complete 3 007 trials without any problems.
During your playthrough, many trophies will come naturally such as Distracting and One small step for a man. Other trophies just require XP which is extremely easy to get high amounts of. If you complete secondary objectives you will get large amounts of XP you can use to purchase training modules, attachments, and gadget upgrades. These trophies will also probably come naturally to you as you progress through the campaign. If you are a sharp observer and thorough investigator, you will most likely be able to see and obtain all the intel located throughout the campaign.
Step 2 - Use Mission select to start completing trials & obtaining intel you missed
If you were able to get 3 007 trials done, then congratulations you are done with 007 difficulty! Now you must go back to all the levels you didn't complete all trials on and finish them. Also, if you are missing any intel items, now is the time to go back and get them while you are completing your trials. If you are having trouble please refer to my collectible intel guide: LINK
There are 11 levels in 007 Legends 8 of which contain trials. Each of the 8 levels has 3 trials, 1 for each difficulty. When going back for trials, if you are working on 007 trials, I recommend you do those alone since the difficulty can make the other 2 trials very complicated. When you are working on Agent and Operative trials, try to put them together so you can save time. Usually it's very easy to do. To earn More Than an Agent you must complete 6 of the 8 provided Agent trials. These are the more tedious trials that aren't too hard, but can be failed if you are not paying attention. After completing the 6 Agent trials of your choice, you should finish up your trial run by completing the Operative trials.
To earn Extended Operative you must complete ALL 8 of the operative level trials given. These aren't hard as they usually involve beating the level under a time limit and such. The only levels that will give you some difficulty if you aren't fast are Blofeld's Lair & Refinery. It is highly recommended that you rush these levels' stealth areas if you wish to be under the time limit. Only 1 part in the Refinery has a mandatory stealth section but even then it is very very short, otherwise you should throw stealth away and just complete your objective.
Step 3 - Begin working on the challenges
Challenges are small levels which you must complete to earn a rating of anywhere from 0-5 stars. There are 10 challenges for a total of 50 stars. 5 MI6 challenges, and 5 Legends challenges. There are 4 different types of challenges: Escape, where you must complete the level by getting to the goal mark, but you start unarmed. Defense, where you must defend an objective from oncoming attackers. Infiltration, where you must use stealth to eliminate 3 targets then make your way to an extraction point. Note: Infiltration doesn't require that you be completely stealthy. You can be detected and still complete the mission. The problem is that when you are detected, the targets will try to run away through a doorway where you cannot kill them. If you are detected, but still manage to kill them, you will still get all your points without any penalties.
There is also Assault, which requires that you complete an objective whilst killing oncoming attackers. Simply beating all challenges with a high enough score will earn you Challenger, but the the real challenge lies with Fascination with all things gold. This requires that you earn the maximum 5 stars in every challenge. Before starting a challenge you may notice a modification menu. This is the key to obtaining 5 stars in all challenges. You must use modifications to tip the odds in your favor, but also to increase your end score multiplier. The harder you make the challenge the higher your multiplier will be. The trick is to make the challenge hard, but instead give yourself some of the better mods such as 4x health. Try to make mods work for you. For example, if you are playing an assault mission, it isn't really necessary to have a radar. If you turn off the radar you will get an increase to your score multiplier. Things such as that can go a long way towards increasing your score. Please check Fascination with all things gold in the Trophy Guide for some very helpful tips if you are struggling.
Step 4 - Multiplayer - Unobtainable
This is where people may turn away from the Platinum. The multiplayer trophies in 007 Legends are not too difficult as they require you play until you reach max level, then enter 00 Specialization mode. Other trophies require that you do some challenging stuff during matches. These trophies would not be such a problem, but the issue lies in the fact that the multiplayer on this game is practically dead. You will only find good matches in Team Conflict and Legends. Every other gametype is a huge hassle to get a game going. To earn the multiplayer trophies your best bet is to sign up in our 007 Legends Boosting Thread: CLICKY, you should find people there willing to help you with multiplayer trophies. Remember to Follow the Boosting Thread Rules! Please check the trophy 00 Agent for a boosting method you can use.
Step 5 - Clean up
By this point you should be practically done with the game. All that you could be missing are small miscellaneous trophies such as With or Without Q, Happy Snapper, Scream if you want to go faster, Standards of Physical Perfection, Boys with Toys, Very Novel Q or Positively Shocking. Most of these just require that you purchase the necessary upgrades or attachments. Others are side trophies that are obtainable in specific levels. These should not provide a challenge at all.
Hopefully you will all find this guide helpful towards obtaining your Platinum. The trophies are relatively easy but require patience. Enjoy and happy trophy hunting everyone!
