Aliens vs Predator is a first person shooter game. It was developed by Rebellion, this team also made an Alien vs Predator game back in 1999 and were aiming to take this game back to its roots. This was published by Sega, a massive name in itself which definitely helped to make this game look promising.
The game takes species from two famous film franchises, the Aliens and the Predators. It is not based on the AvP films but instead gives you a unique insight into each species and the things they can do. You will have the option to take control of the Alien, Predator or a colonial marine in 3 campaigns that will lead you on different paths. If you ever get bored on single player then there is always the multiplayer mode to get stuck into. It gives you the option to play with up to 18 players online in 7 different game modes.
The trophies are of a moderate difficulty & relate to the single player & multiplayer aspects of the game. The story related trophies come easily as all you have to do is complete the campaigns. There are also some for getting a specific amount of weapon kills/enemy kills online as well as offline. Also, within each campaign there are collectibles to be found, these are very easy and there are guides to help you find all of them. Finally the hardest trophies that will give you a challenge are to do with the difficulty, you need to complete the campaigns on the hardest setting. Unfortunately you will have harder enemies, be more vulnerable to attacks & have NO CHECKPOINTS throughout each mission, Good Luck!
Step 1: Completing The Campaigns
This step is basically just completing the game. There are 3 campaigns to choose from, these are:
The campaigns can be completed in any order you wish and on any difficulty you wish. I recommend that you do this step on the ‘hard’ difficulty setting. Doing this will help you get used to the nightmare difficulty for when you do step 2 (see below). If you also want to reduce replaying missions then I suggest you get any collectibles as you go, see step 3 for more info on this.
Step 2: Completing The Campaigns In Nightmare Difficulty (Not Needed If Done During Step 1)
If you decided to go through each campaign on nightmare first time through then just skip this step, if not then read on.
If you followed step 1 and played on hard then you should be ready for this. Nightmare difficulty brings harder enemies, makes you lose more health when you get attacked & gets rid of all checkpoints throughout the missions. I personally recommend that you play the marine campaign last. It’s much harder than the alien & predator campaigns and will require a lot of patience. See below the respective trophy titles for more info and help on getting through nightmare difficulty.
Completing the campaigns on nightmare difficulty will also unlock the hard difficulty trophies. Also see the following thread for videos of speedruns for the campaigns: LINK
Step 3: The Collectibles
There are a number of different collectibles to be found during this game. Each campaign contains a varied amount of collectibles in various different forms. The collectibles are as follows:
Aliens – 50 Royal Jelly Containers + 21 Civilians To Harvest
Predator – 45 Trophy Belts
Marine – 67 Audio Diaries
Tips of what each collectible looks like and how to get them can be found under the trophy titles, there are also some videos there to help guide you along the way. If you happen to miss any during your playthroughs then don’t worry, you can always use mission select to go back to certain missions.
Step 4: Online Trophies
These trophies can be very tricky for some people. Not only do you need to have a certain amount of skill but you may also need to rely on other players to help you win games. There is a section in the guide relating to the online trophies & game modes. Just look in that section for tips & advice. Because of how awful the servers are, I strongly recommend reading this thread created by djhmetfan2 and following his advice to the letter: LINK
There are 4 known glitched trophies, these are:
Welcome To The Party and Real Nasty Habit - Thanks to the latest patch XP no longer calculates properly so any that you earn after your first match, will no longer count. To work around this, back out all the way to the Main Disc Menu (the one you see after first loading the game), wait a few seconds then go back into matchmaking. You have to do this after every single match unfortunately.
The Six Pack - Since the release of the PS4 there have been sporadic issues with people appearing to disappear from your Friends List or appear offline when they're not. This problem can make getting The Six Pack trophy very difficult as it won't recognise you have met the requirements. See the guide for this trophy for a possible temp fix.
Gunslinger - I did not personally experience this but a lot of other players have. The description says to kill 30 enemies with the pistol, but a lot of people have said they needed to kill up to 50-100 enemies before getting the trophy. I recommend you just keep killing enemies until it pops.
Nearly all of the online trophies will need to be boosted since the servers are near deserted, see the guide for more info & use the boosting thread to find players for help you: LINK
