Warning: 7 Days To Die has freezing problems and with it comes crashing, and corrupt save files. I highly recommend that you back up your save and profile data on a regular basis. The profile data is what is more likely to corrupt which stores all your kill and distance progress on it so be careful not to delete or lose it. Also, the characters Clint & Miguel have been reported to corrupt save files very quickly so it's wise not to use them.
Duplication Glitch/Patch 1.02
With a game like 7 Days to Die there is always bound to be a duplication glitch found. Using this glitch can make a lot of the trophies easier on yourself but not any less of a grind. A few items are more important to dupe than others. I've found Repair Kits & Vitamins to be the most useful items to dupe. Finding vitamins and duplicating around 600 of them will get you the 200 wellness needed for the trophy. Eating all of them will pop the trophy in less then 20 minutes. You can also dupe repair kits for the mini bikes and bullets for your weapons so you won't have to scavenge for hours looking for materials to craft them. Take advantage of this as soon as you can because the devs are quick to patch these glitches on PC and with telltale behind this one on console i'm sure it's on it's way out soon. Please refer to the Useful Links above for two available methods.
Welcome to 7 Days to Die! A Zombie filled post apocalyptic Survival Horde with a crafting element. 7 Days to Die has been on PC for 3 years and has been ported over to the PS4, published by Telltale games. Unfortunately the game is still in Alpha stages so there are some minor bugs floating around and the graphics aren't up to par with current games.
Upon loading your first character you will be greeted by a note from a lost friend named "Noah". This serves as a tutorial to new players and will teach you the most basic form of crafting & surviving. After finishing the tutorial you should have been netted a few trophies and you'll be left on your own to survive.
As far as the trophies are concerned, they're all very straightforward but unfortunately some are extremely grindy and will require some time and effort. This guide is going to assume you're using the NavezGane map to make surviving and gathering materials easier for the trophies sake. Because of the type of game this is it really doesn't matter how you decide to play, either by yourself or with a friend or two. However, I'd recommend going in your first game solo and learning how to survive your first week or two, not only because it's the best way to learn how to craft different items and survive but also because there are four trophies related to surviving in a single player game. In total you need 20 hours and 50 minutes racked up on a single character.
Step One: Survive in a single player game for 20 hours and 50 minutes while gaining 200 wellness, and have a score of 1000.
This will be your "master" save where you will spend a lot of time grinding for most of the trophies. Keep in mind that dying and taking damage lowers your wellness and score faster than anything so always backup your saves before each in game day starts to be on the safe side.
From the main menu navigate to "New Game" and select any character from the list you would like to play as. It does not matter who you choose as their stats are all the same at the start. Then, make sure you choose the "Single Player" option as you will be locked of the Nearly Immortal trophy if you do not. You will now have two options - "NavezGane" or "Random Gen" - for your game world. To make following this guide easier and less stressful for yourself choose the "NavezGane" map. You may also change the settings to anything you would like just be sure to never touch the "Cheat Mode" as this will disable trophies for the world you create. Refer to the Nearly Immortal below for the best settings to have set for your world.
During the twenty hour survival you want to focus on finding .44 Magnum parts to start assembling the weapon. You also want to keep a keen eye on your wellness. Combining the The Picture of Good Wealth and Nearly Immortal trophies is your main focus on this step. So, you'll need to do a lot (and I mean a lot!) of scavenging and hunting the lands to get good food in order to increase your wellness.
Now with all that in mind you want to kill any zombie you come across (if you can) to add to the kill count and the score. Getting the 1000 score points needed for the Survivalist trophy is going to require you to kill 1000 zombies without being killed yourself. Dying will result in you losing score. This may sound intimidating but with the right world setting this is a piece of cake will be no trouble to anyone. It's just a huge grind and has to be done on a single character. There are also many miscellaneous trophies you can acquire while playing on this save and they're listed below.
Cause he's the Ax Man
Good In the Sack
The Homestead Act
The Grave Digger
Alive and Kicking
Fit as a Fiddle
Healthy as a Horse
The Picture of Good Wealth
Brush with Death
Near Death Experience
Step Two: Grinding Distance, Zombies Kills, & Player Kills.
After you have unlocked all the trophies that require you to be either in single player or on a single character you can do the rest of the kills and the distance across multiple saves. There is no need to have to grind the 2500 kills on a single character. Also, make sure to have your world settings set correctly to make grinding zombies and player kills a lot easier. Furthermore, if you still have a few of the miscellaneous trophies left you can attempt to obtain these now.
The Funeral Director
Alexander The Great
Step Three: Miscellaneous & Clean Up
If you followed the guide and unlocked all the trophies on the appropriate saves there will be no need for this step. However, if you end up still needing a few of the trophies then use this time to sweep through and finish up. Below are some of the trophies you may have missed. Congratulations on earning your platinum!
