How to unlock Score 300,000 points
This trophy is made really easy thanks to the ability the set your stock of lives to 99. To do this, enter either of the original modes and before you start playing, bring up the options menu by pressing and then select Game Settings. You can increase the amount of lives to however many you feel comfortable with. You can also decrease the difficulty of the game by lowering the current level. Once you’re happy with your settings, press twice to return to the game and when the notification pops up to confirm your selection press .
Now with all the lives you need getting the required scores will be a breeze. However, there are some things to keep in mind to increase your score.
Rescue as many POWs (the guys with beards) as possible, as not only will they supply you with either an item or weapon upon rescue, but you will also receive 1000 bonus points at the end of the stage for every one that you save.
The Tank (aka the Metal Slug) you find during each level will give you a huge point boost of 10,000 if you reach the end of a stage with it still intact. This is easiest to do on the first level as there aren’t too many enemies or hazards to worry about. Unfortunately, controlling the tank can feel awkward and clunky at times. However, there is a neat trick you can take advantage of to keep it in one piece. While in a tank you, can press down and jump at the same time to quickly jump out. If you do this just before you take damage, you’ll escape unharmed. You can use this every time you think the tank is about to be hit, hopefully allowing you to reach the end of the stage with it still in one piece.
Oh, and whatever you do, don't press and at the same time as this will make your tank self destruct.
