Welcome to Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2010. This is a short sport hunting game. If you are a person who likes to duck and cover to get the kill, you will enjoy this game. This game simulates a somewhat realistic hunting experience. If you shoot and miss, your animal will run away. You must quietly get to cover and make the shot quickly to get your gold medals.

Now, let's get to guiding you to your Platinum.

Step One: Complete Story Mode

As soon as you get your first animal hunting mission, do as badly as possible. Don't get any heartshots or lungshots. You should unlock your first trophy (F+ ).

After your first mission, while you are able to control your hunter, press the button 10 times to unlock "What's This Button Do?"

As you progress through story mode, you will unlock most of the trophies just by ranking up and playing as long as you follow the trophy description and try to unlock the trophy. Don't forget when you unlock your first duck hunting mission, to use a shotgun and try to hit two ducks flying next to each other to unlock "One Shot, Two Kills". I also recommend that on Mission 3 you don't use Hunter's Sense. Mission 3 is short and simple, so you will unlock "A True Hunter's Sense" without much trouble.

Now, let's move on to Step Two.

Step Two: Cleanup

The last thing you need to do before your Platinum is cleanup the trophies you may have missed. All the trophies are pretty straightforward and shouldn't be too hard. These trophies include but are not limited to "Duck and Cover" , "Heartbreaker" , "Metal Deer Solid" , "Splinter Smell" , "William Tell" , "Muzzlelover" , "Pistolero" , "It's a Long Shot" , "A True Hunter's Sense" , "Ultimate Tracker", and "Ultimate Hunter" . You may also need to get a gold medal on every mission in the game and farm weapon kills for "Ultimate Hunter" , "William Tell" , "Muzzlelover" , and "Pistolero" if you haven't done so already.

In closing, good luck to all of you who decide to go for Platinum on this game.

    Complete any objective without getting a medal

    Can be done at any point in the game. Right at the very start or very end, just spray your gun around aimlessly and spook as many animals as possible and then kill one and you should get the trophy. It's best to do it right at the start and run out in plain sight and hip fire at the deer.

  • Used a scope 42 times

    Pretty much unmissable as you'll earn this by just playing the game naturally but if you want it instantly then at the very start of the game, just ADS (Aim Down Sights) your gun 42 times and the trophy will pop.

  • Bag all 4 bears in the game

    Story Related

    You get this in Mission 8, after you bag the last bear in the game.

  • Shoot 20 rabbits

    Virtually unmissable. There are plenty of shooting galleries throughout the game that will let you shoot at rabbits.

  • Shoot 2 animals with one shotgun shot

    You should earn this naturally are the first duck shooting gallery, double kills are very common during these.

  • Perform 14 heart shots

    When aiming at a animal, it will show you the 3 vitals with an X-ray i.e.:

    - Lungs
    - Spine
    - Heart

    The heart is the hardest target and is normally blocked by the lungs. try to be on the same level as the animal and wait for it to stand still, once it does. Fire away and this trophy should be yours in no time.

  • Bag any deer from within 9 yards

    I got this at the start of the game. Just slip out with your scope up and take out the deer but regardless of if he sees you or not, you can still get the kill and thus the trophy.

  • Get within 6 yards of any animal without alerting it

    I got this at the very first hunt in the first mission, just crouch and move up very slowly behind the deer and you should alert him just as you get within 6 yards. This may take some trial and error but it is definitely possible. 

  • Bag an animal from beyond 80 yards

    At the start of the game, after the very first hunt, you will now go on to the second hunt, look to your right and you should see the deer, now, back up away from him until you're at the very back against some shrubs, you should be able to hit him from this far away and it is well over 80 yards. I got the trophy here but you can also get this trophy at the very start of Mission 6, as you are pretty much already at 80 yards from the spawn and can easily get the trophy here.

  • Hunt 30 animals with a crossbow

    Once you unlock the crossbow, go around and start shooting as many animals as possible with it until the trophy pops.

  • Hunt 30 animals with a muzzleloader

    Very easy. Once you unlock the Muzzleloader, fire at a few ducks and rabbits in the shooting galleries and you'll get this in no time.

  • Hunt 30 animals with a pistol

    You get a pistol at the start of the game so just go around shooting stuf and the trophy will be yours.

  • Complete the game

    Story Related

    You will earn this after finishing the game.

  • Get all Gold Medals in any level


    See Ultimate Hunter

  • Complete any level without using Hunter Sense

    Pretty easy trophy actually, Hunter Sense lets you see hunting areas and your targets as well, without this it may be a bit hard to navigate but for the most part this is pretty easy. The best mission to do this on is 2 or 3.

  • Get all Gold Medals for all hunts


    For every hunt you are awarded a medal, whether it be a gallery or a regular hunt and they are earned based off how far your shot was, your positioning and where you hit your target. What makes this really easy on regular hunts is that when you aim at your target, it will tell you what medal you will get if you fire.

    My tips for regular hunts are:

    - Use Hunter Sense to find the best areas to hide for more points.
    - Aim for the heart.
    - Try to aim for targets that are the most far away from you.

    My tips for shooting galleries are:

    - Get as many double/triple kills as you can.
    - Get as many kills as you can don't stop until it's over.

    For the most part, these are super easy and should cause no real issue for you when it comes down to it.

  • Collect at least 90 animal signs


    There are far more than 90 animal signs in the game, animal signs can normally only be found with Hunter Sense and can only be seen on the ground or on trees. See here for a full video walkthrough guide on where to find said animal tracks: LINK
