Introduction

Welcome to Brütal Legend, a game where rock and metal are the foundations to humanity. You play as Eddie Riggs, a roadie for a rock/metal band who is crushed to death when the stage set falls on him. However his blood gets into his belt buckle and he gets transported back in time to Brütal Land. A prehistoric era where everything is a bit more rock and roll than it was back home. Here he sees humanity has been oppressed by the Demons of the Tainted Coil. Eddie has come to help lead humanity into a new age of Rock and Metal.

Brütal Legend has a very interesting play style, it is part open world, part action RPG and part RTS all at the same time. It isn’t an overly hard game even on Brutal, just need to make more use with your solos than on Normal and Easy. The main problem with the game comes with the latest patch (v1.02) and the 78% glitch. If you go over 78% game completion on this patch, then there is a very high chance that your save file will corrupt and you will be unable to load it anymore and have to start a new game from scratch. If you have an older save handy from before you hit 78%, then you can carry on but will have to finish the remainder of the game in one go. See Road Map to prevent corrupted data by Conceptfly for a very good guide to how to do the game with the glitch in mind. If you don't have Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC and don't plan on doing it, you can also play the game unpatched and that should remove the 78% glitch for you, just don't accidentally install the update until you have Metal God or your file will also corrupt. The servers are still working but the player population is almost non-existent, thus you will need a boosting partner for the online trophies.

Note: Guide has been written assuming patch 1.02 has been installed.

If you want to downgrade to the 1.01 patch, to avoid the 78% glitch then see here: LINK to downgrade. NOTE: The Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC and the Online trophies require the 1.02 patch to be installed, before they can be accessed. If you update to patch 1.02 after going past 78% completion, then your file still has a chance of corrupting.


Walkthrough

Step 0: Earn the Ironheade Concept Art

First you are going to want to go to the matchmaking against nobody and spawn enough units to get the concept art for all the units, don't forget to double team the stage for the stage's concept art. See Metal God for the unit summoning estimates.


Step 1: Play the game on Brutal up until the final mission, while getting the collectables and doing the hunting side missions

During this step you will want to get all the available collectables and do the hunting side missions while also doing the story to save time when you go for the final 23-25% for Metal God. Be sure to collect every possible collectable before doing the final battle and getting Overkill to save time after going over 78% completion. At this point you should just have 1 final story missions, all the side missions except the Hunting missions, 2 legends and 1 Bound Serpent left. This put me at 77% in-game completion.

Trophies earned during this step:

Got a Car and a Date
Start a Revolution
Thick as a Baby's Arm
Hair Remover
French Kiss Instructor
Chicks n' Booze n' Stuff
Ran to the Hills
Fistful of Fog
No More Tears
One Hit Wonder
Serpent Samaritan
Serpent Spanker
Flowerslave
Virtuso
Tourist
Overkill


Step 2: Pre-Post Game Miscellaneous trophies

Now you are going to want to do as many of the miscellaneous trophies as you can, before going over 78% game completion. You do not want to do any of the other trophies that will increase your completion % so avoid the other side missions and buying items in the Motor Forge that aren't from the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC pack.

Trophies earned during this step:

Some Demon Flesh on your Bumper
I've never touched an axe before.
Silence, ground walker!
Quill Tosser
Coolest Thing Ever
Beast Master

If you have the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC:

If You Want Blood, You Got It
Cry Me a River
Whispering Rock
A Face Like a Beast


Step 3: Finish the Game and get Metal God + Post-Game Miscellaneous trophies

After doing everything in Step 2, you are going to have to do the last 23-25% of Metal God in a single sitting. This is because if you quit the game at any time after reaching 78%, there is a very high chance your save will corrupt and refuse to load. You will also have to do the 1 post game miscellaneous trophy, 4 if you have Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC.

Trophies earned during this step:

Groupie
Roadie
Legend
Serpent Saviour
Now You Must Tell the Tale
Voices From Beyond
Loyal Customer
Protector
Squeal Like a Chicken
Favored
Boar Bather
Metal God - GLITCHED

If you have the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC:

Carnivore
Bead Beard Action Beard!
Norwegian Sendoff


Step 4: Online

You are going to want to find a boosting partner to get the Victör , Subjügator , Cönquerer and Six Degrees of Schafer trophies.

Trophies earned during this step:

Six Degrees of Schafer
Victör
Subjügator
Cönquerer

If you have the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC:

Hammer of Infinite Fate Tourist
Hammer of Fate Champion


Step 5: A.I Stage Battles

Defeat the A.I in a Brutal Battle to get Practice Bloody Practice and Iron Fist . Now beat the A.I in a Normal difficulty Battle, only this time you're not allowed to attack the enemy yourself. Once you have beaten the A.I. without personally attacking them, Armchair General will pop.

Trophies earned during this step:

Practice Bloody Practice
Armchair General
Iron Fist


Step 6: Earn the Miscellaneous Multiplayer Trophies and your Platinum

These can be done either with a Boosting Partner or vs A.I. The Master of the... trophies and Sellout can easily be done vs A.I without the A.I while I would recommend finding a booting partner for Euthanasia, Death From Above, Dollpocalypse, Ringleader and Painkiller.

Trophies earned during this Step:

Master of the Flame
Master of the Tear
Master of the Blood
Euthanasia
Death From Above
Dollpocalypse
Ringleader
Painkiller
Sellout

At the end of all of that, you will also have earned:

Rock God

Brutal Legend Trophy Guide

Show secret trophies

60 trophies ( 12  44  )

  • Get all trophies

    This will unlock after getting all 50 of the non-DLC trophies. You are now the ultimate roadie!
  • Achieved 100% completion on the stats screen

     
    GLITCHED

    This trophy is glitched in a very bad way. When playing on Patch 1.02 after you get to 78%+ completion the game file corrupts and will not be able to load anymore so once you get to 75-77%, you must backup your saves to either a USB Drive or the PS Plus Save File Cloud. If you save it to the Cloud, make sure to disable the Auto-Upload feature so any corrupt files don't get uploaded and overwrite the good ones. For more information see the Roap Map to Prevent Corrupted Data by Conceptfly. It is also very important to get the online concept art for Ironheade, because you need to check the stats screen and have it at 100% for the trophy to pop but you will be unable to do this if your file goes past 78% completion.

    Requirements for 100% completion:
    • All Story Missions complete
    • All Side Missions complete
    • All 120 Bound Serpents freed
    • All 12 Solos learned
    • All 24 Buried Metal raised
    • All 11 Motor Forges raised
    • All 13 Legends viewed
    • All 32 Landmarks viewed
    • All 24 Lightning Bugs collected
    • All Items Purchase in Motor Forge
    • All Ironheade Concept Art

    The "Oculus of the Lost" upgrade for the Deuce, will reveal the locations of the collectables. This includes Legends, Motor Forges, Buried Metal, Bound Serpents, Tab Slabs and Jumps. Note: This is only available if you own the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC. Thanks to shrapx for the tip.

    For the Ironheade Concept Art, create a private online match against the A.I and then take over the Fan Geysers. Now place your Rally flag in the middle where the giant worm is. Now you are going to need to spawn the units until you unlock their concept art. It takes ~20-25 for the Headbangers, Razor Girls and Thunderhogs then ~15-20 for the Fire Baron, Head Splitter and Bouncer then ~10-15 of the Roadies and Metal Beast and finally ~5 of the Rock Crusher. You will also need to double team with your stage for 5 minutes. Each concept art needs to be done in a single match, as they are not cumulative between matches.

    Here's a really good location map that shows where everything is (credit to Achievement Hunter.com for this): LINK.
  • Freed all 120 Bound Serpents

    There are 120 Bound serpents in the game and are found all over the map. The Serpents look like a statue that has been wrapped in BDSM belts but also has a big red ball-gag in their mouth. To free them, you need to aim your Guitar at them and hold so the subsequent Pyro attack will hit them. See the following image for what one looks like (credit to the Brutal Legend Wiki for this) but also see Metal God for a location map that shows where they all are:
     
    Here is a video playlist for all the Bound Serpent locations (credit to DF Fans for this): LINK
  • Purchased 1 upgrade in the Motor Forge

    First, find and raise a Motor Forge with the Relic Raiser solo. Once you do that, drive into it with Deuce and you will meet the Guardian of Metal. Purchase any upgrade that costs Fire Tributes for this to unlock.
  • Freed 40 Bound Serpents

    See Serpent Savior.
  • Freed 80 Bound Serpents

    See Serpent Savior.
  • Summoned all Motor Forges

    There are 11 Motor Forges in the world that need to be raised via the Relic Raiser Solo. These also have Devil Flowers around them like the Buried Metal but are much larger.

    Here is a video guide for all Motor Forges (credit to MrKennyKRH for this):
     
    See Metal God for a map that shows the location of every Motor Forge.
  • Viewed all Legends

    There are 13 legends in total and each one looks like a chained up statue but you need to break it by pressing and simultaneously. Once it is broken open, press to view the Legend. There are 2 Legends statues that aren't accessible until after specific story missions:

    1: The frozen one in the northern area isn't accessible until late game sometime after moving the convoy into the final area.
    2: The one in the Sea of Black Tears area isn't accessible until after you have killed the final boss and are able to free roam.

    Here is a video guide for Legends locations (credit to MrKennyKRH for this):
     
    See Metal God for a map that shows the location of every Legend.
  • Learned all guitar solos

    There are 12 solos in total and you mainly learn learn from the Tab Slabs, some of which don't appear until after specific missions but you also learn one from doing your first Hunting Side Mission and then there others are story based. Note: There is one solo you get from the Hunter for completing his first hunting mission. See Metal God for a map that shows the location of every solo.

    Here is a video guide for all Tab Slab locations (credit to MrKennyKRH for this):
     
  • Unlock all songs in the Mouth of Metal

    You need to unlock all 107 songs. Songs unlock from playing the story while others unlock by raising Buried Metal. The Buried Metal has some Devil Flowers around them but you need to play Relic Raiser Solo to raise it from the ground and obtain a song for the soundtrack. See Metal God for a map that shows the location of every Buried Metal.

    Here is a video guide for the Buried Metal locations (credit to MrKennyKRH for this):
     
     
  • Purchased all upgrades in the Motor Forge

    Purchase all of the Deuce, Deuce Primary/Secondary Weapons, Axe and Guitar upgrades from the Motor Forge. It costs a total of 3,105 Fire Tributes to buy everything. This does not include the Paint Jobs, threads or Mt. Rockmore heads, however these are needed for Metal God.
  • Viewed all vistas

    There are 32 Landmarks and you can view them by looking for the Skeleton Binoculars, which are usually located near the landmarks that you can see on your map.

    See Metal God for a map that shows the location of every landmark.
  • Completed 20 ambush, outpost defense, or mortar secondary missions

    Complete 20 of the ambush, outpost defense or mortar side missions, there are more than 20 and all of them needed to be completed for Metal God.
  • Completed all hunting secondary missions

    There are 9 hunting missions in total and the first 4 are west of Bladehenge were "The Hunter" will have 4 missions for you:
    • Ground Urchin x21
    • Raptor Elk x16
    • Razorfire Boar x11
    • Tollusk x6
    He will then move to the snowy area and have 4 more missions:
     
    • Reaper Steed x16
    • Laser Panther x6
    • Sickle Wraith x11
    • Guillotar x6
    He will move back to the first area West of Bladehenge and have a final mission:
    • Hextadon x4
    After the last mission, return to the hunter at the place where he gave you your first mission then he will give you the reward. The trophy will pop once the Hunter has given you your reward, which is the Quill Axe. Note: This Axe is inferior to all the others so isn't worth using.
  • Completed all racing secondary missions

    You need to complete all 7 racing missions against Fletus but these aren't too hard if you buy all the speed upgrades for the Deuce from the Motor Forge. See here for a description of the first 5 courses (credit to the Brutal Legend Wiki for this): LINK.

    Note: For winning all the races, you will unlock an upgrade for your Nitro boost.
  • Acquired 3,000 Fire Tributes

    This will come naturally as you go for Metal God but if for some reason it doesn't, you can drive around and help out any Ironheade units you see engaged in combat. Helping out your allies, will net you 15 Fire Tributes once all the enemies are dead. This trophy is cumulative so you don't need to have all 3,000 on you at once. Here's a farming method if you want to speed things up (credit to casdegroot for this):
     
  • Slayed 150 enemies with the Deuce - any mode

    Kill 150 enemies with the Deuce's weapons or by running them over. This probably won't come naturally unless you like to kill everything you come across while in the Deuce. There are Drowning Doom enemies on the way down to the black water or there are Tainted Coil enemies that are around Bladehenge. If you have the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC, then this will come whilst going for the respective "Kill X amount of enemies with X weapon" trophies.

    Note: Animals don't count towards this.
  • Spent 250,000 fans - any mode

    This the most grindy trophy in the game. After doing everything else in the game, story and online, I only had ~55K fans spent. What you are going to want to do is go to the Feeding Area in Multiplayer and take over all the Fan Geysers, then place your flag in the Feeding Area so the giant worm will kill anything that wanders in there. Continue this until you have spent the needed fans. You are required to be signed in to start a Private Match vs nobody. Note: The maximum fans you can have pooled at any one time is 9,999.
  • Personally smoted 300 enemies - any mode

    Kill 300 enemies with Eddie using either the axe, guitar or solos. This should come naturally during play but if not, look for units wandering the map and kill them with Eddie.

    Note: Animals don't count towards this.
  • Gained 5 or more seconds of hang time in a single jump - any mode

    North East of the Kill Master's area, there is a cliff above the beach. You need to drive off the cliff and you will easily spend more than 5 seconds in the air. Another area that works is the road that goes up the South West side of the Black Tears area. Once at the top at the end on the East side of the bridge, you should see a small gap that the Deuce should be able to fit through. Drive off this and you will spend 5 seconds or more in air.

    If you are having trouble, then check out this video (credit to Rooster Teeth for this):
     
  • Hit 15 enemies with one Agony Ball using the Pain Lifter's Double Team

    This is best done with a boosting partner in a private match so post in the Boosting Thread if you need to find a partner: LINK. Now have your friend play as Ironheade and keep spawning headbangers until they have the maximum units.

    Playing as Tainted Coil, you need to summon a War Father and then double team with the War Father to spawn a Pain Lifter. When you double team the Pain Lifter you can aim its Agony Ball and explode it. Playing against partner throw it into the middle of the Headbangers and detonate it. If playing against A.I, I recommend choosing Tainted Coil or Ironheade as your opponent. Now capture one of the Fan Geysers and wait for the enemy to send a bunch of units to take it over, then use the Pain Lifter Double Team to try and hit as many of the units as possible.
  • Killed 20 enemies with one Bleeding Death

    This is best done with a boosting partner in a private match so post in the Boosting Thread if you need to find a partner: LINK. Now have your friend play as Ironheade and keep spawning headbangers until they have the maximum units.

    Playing as the Tainted Coil, you need to max out your stage and then build one of the Bleeding Death units. Play the solo and fly over your boosting partners group of headbangers and drop it. It will easily kill 20+ headbangers. If playing against the A.I, I recommend choosing Tainted Coil or Ironheade as your opponent. Now wait until they have a large group of enemies, then drop it on them and it will go on a killing spree.
  • Hit 6 enemies with the explosion from a Brood's Double Team

    This is best done with a boosting partner in a private match so post in the Boosting Thread if you need to find a partner: LINK. Now have your friend play as Ironheade and keep spawning headbangers until they have the maximum units.

    Playing as the Drowning Doom you need to summon the Brood and Double Team it and it acts as a kamikaze suicide bomber. The explosion from this unit, doesn't need to kill its targets but it must hit at least 6 of them for the trophy to pop. If playing against the A.I, play against either Ironheade or Tainted Coil as they will spawn a fair amount of units.
  • Trapped 15 enemies in one ring of fire with the Fire Baron's Double Team

    This is best done against a boosting partner in a private match so post in the Boosting Thread if you need to find a partner: LINK. Now have your friend play as Ironheade and keep spawning headbangers until they have the maximum units.

    Playing as Ironheade, you need to use the Fire Baron's Double Team to enclose 15+ enemies in a ring of fire. If boosting simply enclose your partners headbangers in the Double Team ring of fire. If doing it against AI play against Tainted Coil in the Feeding Ground and sit at your base letting opponents build up an army. Defend your stage and once it looks like they have enough units, spawn some Fire Barons and then quickly try to enclose 15+ of them in a ring of fire. This needs to be done quickly, before they start getting vehicles or you won't have enough units to enclose.
  • Killed 25 enemies with the grinder of one Rock Crusher

    This is best done with a boosting partner in a private match so post in the Boosting Thread if you need to find a partner: LINK. Now have your friend play as Ironheade and keep spawning headbangers until they have the maximum units.

    Playing as Ironheade, you need to build the Rock Crusher which needs you to maximize your stage and build the Rock Crusher. Once it is spawned Double Team with it and drive over and kill 25 enemies. Using the button attack doesn't count for kills and neither does the rockets it shoots out. If playing against the A.I, I recommend playing against Ironheade as their Headbangers and Razor Girls will die pretty quickly from being run over.
  • Play with or against another player who has this Trophy

    This can be done in either a Private or Ranked Match.

    There are still a handful of people playing this game online but the numbers are tiny, thus you are more than likely going to have to boost this trophy so post in the boosting thread and ask for help from someone that has this already: LINK. The trophy will pop once the match has started.
  • Completed "Welcome to the Age of Metal"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After escaping over the bridge in the first mission/tutorial the trophy will pop.
  • Completed "Exploited in the Bowels of Hell"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    The trophy will unlock after saving the Headbangers from the mines. Play your Rally Cry Solo to recruit more headbangers to fight with you.
  • Completed "Lair of the Metal Queen"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After defeating the Metal Queen and returning the strings back to the Kill Master this trophy will unlock. Keep a safe distance from her and hit her with your guitar's electrical attack until she falls to the ground, then go in swinging with your axe. She will also spawn small spiders which you can deal with via the Facemelter Solo or with normal attacks. She will also spawn tiny spiders which you will need to deal with via ground shockwave attack.
  • Completed "Battle for Bladehenge"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After doing the tutorial mission that shows you the Stage Battle controls and defeating Lionwhyte's forces, this trophy will unlock. You will have to defend for a few waves of enemies, just keep recruiting Headbangers and Razor Girls and protecting your two Fan Geysers.
  • Completed "Pilgrimage of Screams"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After obtaining some weapons for the Roadies, this trophy will unlock.
  • Completed "Sanctuary of Sin"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After defeating Lionwhyte, this trophy will pop. You will need to use Roadies to take out the 2 cannons he has setup by his stage, if you don't all your other units will get destroyed quickly once they get up the stairs.
  • Completed "It's Raining Death"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After escaping Lionwhyte's palace, the trophy will pop.
  • Completed "Dry Ice, Wet Graves"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After defeating the Drowned Doom in a Stage Battle in the Dry Ice Mines, this trophy will unlock. The best way to do this one, is to build a bunch of units and go straight up the middle as fast as possible.
  • Completed "Sea of Black Tears"

    Story Related, can't be missed.

    After defeating the Drowning Doom in a Stage Battle in the Sea of Black Tears, this trophy will unlock. You will need to hold position until you can build a Rockcrusher. Once you have a Rockcrusher, use its Bladehenge Assault to take out the 2 towers blocking your path and open up an access route to the enemy stage. Beware though, because the Drowning Doom have a tree enemy which is their version of the Rockcrusher. Use Bladehenge Assault on it as soon as possible or it will decimate your units.
  • Won 10 match-made multiplayer battles.

    Note: This must be done in Ranked matches.

    See Cönquerer.
  • Won a ranked multiplayer match

    Note: This must be done in a Ranked match.

    See Cönquerer.
  • Won 50 match-made multiplayer battles.

    Note: This must be done in Ranked matches.

    There are still a handful of people playing this game online but the numbers are tiny, thus you are more than likely going to have to boost the Subjügator, Victör and Cönquerer trophies so post in the boosting thread and ask for help: LINK.

    To boost the wins required these trophies, do the following:

    1: Enter matchmaking at the same time as your friend, then try to find them.
    2: Once you have found each other, start the match then have your friend surrender after a few seconds.
    3: Rinse and repeat Steps 1+2 but alternate who surrenders so you don't outrank your partner or you eventually won't be able to connect to each other, due to how the matchmaking works.
  • Double Teamed with every Ironheade unit

    Head into a Private Multiplayer Match and choose any map but make sure to pick Ironheade as your team. Now create one of each unit, then go up to them and press to initiate a Double Team. Do this with all units in Ironheade. You can also do this easily during the story, it will be part of the story to double team every Ironheade Unit except for the Razor Girls, Headsplitter and Bouncer. You can then just find these units wandering around the map and Double Team with them there.

    The required units are as follows:
    • Headbanger
    • Razor Girl
    • Thunderhog
    • Fire Baron
    • Headsplitter
    • Bouncer
    • Roadie
    • Metal Beast
    • Rock Crusher
  • Won an AI stage battle - any difficulty

    See Iron Fist.
  • Double Teamed with every Drowning Doom unit

    Head into a Private Multiplayer Match and choose any map but make sure to pick the Drowning Doom as your team. Now create one of each unit and go up to them and press to Double Team. Do this with all units in Drowning Doom.

    The required units are as follows:
    • Grave Digger
    • Frightwig
    • Bride
    • Ratgut
    • Lightning Rod
    • Organist
    • Brood
    • Dirgible
    • Reaper
    • Tree Back
  • Double Teamed with every Tainted Coil unit

    Head into a Private Multiplayer Match and choose any map but make sure to pick the Tainted Coil as your team. Now create one of each unit and go up to them and press to Double Team. Do this with all units in Tainted Coil.

    The required units are as follows:
    • Battle Nun
    • Soul Kisser
    • Punishing Party
    • Warfather
    • Skull Raker
    • Screamwagon
    • Pain Lifter
    • Overblesser
    • Heart Cutter
    • Hate Cage
    Note: Not all Tainted Coil units can be created via because the Battle Nun, Warfather and Overblesser units have a Double Team that then allows you to summon the other units.
  • Won a stage battle by yourself against the AI without attacking

    Play against the A.I and do not use your General (e.g. Eddie) to attack the enemy. The easiest way to do this would be to play as Ironheade against Tainted Coil on Most Gentle difficulty. Summon 1 Headbanger and 2 Razor Girls and send them to the Geyser to the right of the map. Take it over with your solo. Upgrade your stage and then summon a set of Fire Barons. Carefully send them through the middle to the left to take over the other 2 Geysers and take both of them, this is done easily by double teaming them and driving the units over yourself. Continue making Headbangers, Razor Girls and 1 Thunderhog to back up the geyser on the right. Now send all your current units to the enemies stage and continue making Headbangers and Razor Girls and you should have no difficulty destroying the stage.

    Note: You can use solos that do not harm the enemy units i.e. Rally Cry.

    Another method from true achievements:
    Play as Ironheade and go against Drowning Doom on the Battered Bluff map. First thing, Upgrade your stage once. Now wait until you have enough funds to build some fire barons.

    Make about 4 groups of fire barons and use LB to target the enemy stage and go to your troops and use -> on the D-pad to make your guys go to the stage and attack it.

    While they attack, use the battle cry to make them stronger. Just wait at your stage while they work and it will be over soon.

    The trick to this is that the other team is busy getting merch booths set up and it is a big map. So they will be busy doing that with low level troops and you are free to pwn that other stage!

    This trick also works for the "Iron Fist" achievement for winning a Brutal AI battle. But be sure to attack the other team's leader to keep them off of your fire barons. Also, dropping a zeppelin on the stage helps a ton too.
  • Rode a Razorfire Boar into the Sea of Black Tears and lived to tell the tale.

    This will need to be completed post game. Once you have beaten the game head to the Razor Fields and stun and ride a Razorfire Boar. You will then have to steer the Boar all the way down to where the final mission was. Once you are there you have to send the Boar into the Sea of Black Tears without going in yourself. Where the bridge used to be straight ahead in the area is where you want to go. Head as close to the edge as you can and press to jump off, you cannot fall into the Sea of Black Tears or you will die and void the trophy. You can fall off the boar, then re-stun and ride it again.
  • Killed a Tollusk using only Ground Urchins.

    Tollusks are the large bear-like animal and the Ground Urchins are the metal porcupine animals. You need to shock a Ground Urchin with your guitar via tapping then pick it up with and dropkick it at the Tollusk. It will take ~5 to kill the Tollusk. The Tollusk also will run away while you are holding a Ground Urchin so pick it up as it goes to attack you and you can throw it while it is recovering from its attack.
  • Completed Campaign mode on Gentle

  • Completed Campaign mode on Brütal

    Completing the game on Brütal, will also unlock the Groupie and Roadie trophies.

    Some general tips for Brütal difficulty are to get all the collectables in any given area before starting any of the missions in that location. The game is split into 3 areas where progression is blocked by something that needs a story mission to unlock. Bladehenge area, snowy area and then jungle/Sea of Black Tears area. As for the actual battles use your solos as much as you can, my favourites were Rally Cry and Facemelter. For the Stage Battles, speed is key because the faster you can kill them, the less high powered units they will spawn and the faster you can wipe out your opponent. If you get pinned down with high level enemies, you are better off restarting the last Checkpoint and trying again.

    The only roadblock might be the last mission, here is what I did to get past it:

    Before you start the mission, go and buy the Soul Sucking Axe Treatment for 320 Fire Tributes. This will make the final 1v1 fight a breeze. First, start the Stage Battle by taking over the 2 Fan Geysers and then plant your rally flag between them. The enemy will shoot needles into the ground that spawns Tainted Coil enemies. Hold position and build more units. I went with 1 Rockcrusher, 2 Metal Beasts, 2 Head Splitters, 1 Thunderhog and the rest Fire Baron/Razor Girl/Headbanger. Once you have this, play your units a Rally Cry Solo and send them to the left head. Once they take down the left head play another Rally Cry and send them to the right head. After sending them, fly back to your stage and summon the Deuce then ride it up the left ramp and into the eye of the left head. After that, your units should quickly take out the right head. Drive back to the stage and go up the ramp on the right side, then drive through the eye on the right head. At this point, a bunch of large Tainted Coil enemies will spawn. Just drive the Deuce up the middle where Doviculus was standing and you will enter a 1vs1 fight with him. If you have the Soul Sucking axe, then this will be a breeze. Use your Facemelter solo to easily dispatch the minions he summons and use lightning from your guitar to knock him down when he chains himself up.

    Here is a video walkthrough for Brutal difficulty (credit to dsr07mm for this): LINK
  • Jumped over a Hextadon in the Deuce

    Once you are in the snowy area, you will start to see the Hextadons roaming around. Hextadons are the large mammoth-like animals. You will need to lure a Hextadon near a ramp and then jump over it in the Deuce. I found it easiest to do on the East side of the snowy area as there are more jumps there than on the West side of the snowy area.
  • Rode every animal in the world

    There are 7 species of animal in the game and for this trophy, you need to ride 1 of each of them. To ride an animal, stun them with electric attacks by tapping then press to get on its back. NOTE: The animals summoned via the Call of the Wild Solo, don't count towards this trophy.
    • Raptor Elk
    • Tollusk
    • Razorfire Boar
    • Laser Panther
    • Reaper Steed
    • Guillatar
    • Hextadon
  • Won an AI stage battle - Brütal difficulty

    This is similar to the Armchair General strategy, except you can join the fight and kill enemies yourself. Just make sure to protect your Headbangers and Razor Girls after moving the Fire Barons to the far 2 geysers. Can also build some Thunderhogs after the Fire Barons to act as a healer to your Headbangers and Razor Girls. Also don’t forget you can use your solos to increase damage on your units.

    If you are having trouble and also own the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC, then see Hammer of Fate Champion for a video guide on how to beat the A.I on Brutal difficulty.

    Another method thanks to Retsamegas:
    Play Ironheade vs Drowning, Feeding ground map.
    Start making razor girls, 2 sets were enough for me.
    While they are being made go to the edge of the center area and place your gathering flag.
    Go to the Razor girls that are finished and team up with them. Run along the right path and go to the enemy stage. Don't worry about getting fan geysers or anything, just run straight to the stage. Stay to the right side of the stage near the giant speaker and spam the X team up attack. The other 3 girls will fight and die but if you stay right next to the stage the AI can't attack you. I never got hit and it took less than 5 minutes all told.

DLC: Hammer of Infinite Fate

9 trophies

  • Ran down 20 animals in the Deuce with the Coiling Maw equipped.

    You can only purchase the Coiling Maw once you have all the other armor upgrades for the Deuce but it is a free item that costs 0 Fire Tributes. I would recommend going for this in the Bladehenge area as it will kill Ground Urchins and Raptor Elk in a single hit.
  • Killed 20 Tainted Coil units with the Disgorger.

    You can purchase the Disgorger fairly early in the game for 0 Fire Tributes, before you really see many Tainted Coil units. Purchase it and keep it on your car and use it by holding whenever you come across a Tainted Coil unit. The Tainted Coil units will start appearing after you have completed the "Doom's Dawn" mission so once that happens, start farming the kills you need for this trophy.
  • Killed 20 Drowning Doom units with the Eye of Sorrow.

    After defending yourself from The Drowning Doom for the first time, head to a Motor Forge and buy and equip the Eye of Sorrow for 0 Fire Tributes then kill 20 Drowning Doom units with the attack. There are quite a few Drowning Doom enemies just wandering around in the area South of the Jungle but you can also find a few in the Jungle itself and the frozen area in the Northern part of the map. Not all kills seem to count but I personally had the best luck killing the Grave Diggers and Brides, though there is a possibility that the enemies killed during Turret Missions do not count towards the total.

  • Chiseled four Razputin heads onto Mt. Rockmore.

    The Razputin Head is purchased from the Metal Forge for 0 Fire Tributes. After purchasing the head, go to the area just to the South East of Bladehenge and climb to the top of the "Devil Horn" metal hand sign that has lighting arcing between the fingers. Once on top press then change the 4 heads to the Razputin Head that you purchased.
  • Made out with Ophelia while wearing the Mountain Man Threads.

    Note: This can only be obtained after you have finished the main story.

    Once you beat the game head to a Motor Forge and buy and equip the Mountain Man Threads. Head up the the cross to the West of Bladehenge and you will find Ophelia sitting on the side of the monument. Walk up to her and press to start making out. Once you have had enough, press again to end the cutscene and pop the trophy.
  • Killed 15 enemies with a Metal Beast while wearing the Zaulia Threads.

    After doing the first mission in the jungle area, you will get the ability to ride Metal Beasts. Head to a Motor Forge and buy, then equip the Zaulia Threads. Find a Metal Beast and ride it around and kill enemies. This is cumulative and doesn't need to be done on the same Metal Beast, providing you are wearing the Zaulia Threads.
  • Played a multiplayer game on all Hammer of Infinite Fate multiplayer maps.

    Simply start up a Private Multiplayer Match against the A.I on the following maps, then surrender to complete the match:
    • Altar of Blood
    • Coiled Remains
    • Crucible of the Titans
    • The Amplified Cliffs
  • Won 10 games on Hammer of Infinite Fate maps - ranked or vs. the Brütal AI.

    This is best done with a boosting partner in a public match whilst going for the Cönquerer trophy so post in the Boosting Thread LINK but if you can't find anyone to play with, then you will need to beat Brütal A.I 10 times. I recommend playing on the Coiled Remains map vs Tainted Coil and taking over the 2 Fan Geysers down there, then continuously building Headbangers and Razor Girls and have them assault the enemy stage while you deal with any units that are summoned. Whenever you can, play your Guitar Solo to increase the amount of damage that your units can do but the main thing is trying to brute force your way to victory as fast as possible.
    See the following video for a alternate strategy (credit to magicalmike2 for this):
     
  • Visited the grave of a fallen hero while wearing the Black Metal Threads.

    Note: This can only be obtained after you have finished the main story.

    Head to a Motor Forge and buy the Black Metal Threads for 0 Fire Tributes, then equip them and head to the graveyard just South of Bladehenge. Here you will find Lita kneeling before a grave so go up to her and press then once you start paying your respects, press again and the trophy will pop once you are out of the scene.
