- Estimate difficulty: 6/10. This the current rating in the difficulty thread. I would say that the "I Will Survive" trophy is a solid 7/10 in terms of difficulty, but the remaining ones are more of a 3/10 or 4/10.
- Estimated time to platinum: 10-20 hours. This depends heavily on skill and a little bit on luck.
- Minimum number of play-throughs needed: 1 1/3 in story mode and a bunch of galleries.
- Trophy breakdown: 20 (5 , 6 , 8 , 1 ).
- Offline: All.
- Online: None.
- Missable trophies: None.
- Glitched trophies: None.
- Does difficulty affect trophies? Sort of. The extra 1/3 needed in story mode must be played on on hard difficulty. This is relevant for the "Gallery Lover" trophy. See it for more details.
- Do cheats disable trophies? Not applicable.
- Special hardware required for platinum? No.
Welcome to Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011. This game is broken up into two game modes: Gallery and Story. Gallery mode is an arcade style "on rails" shooting mode, while Story mode is more of a first person shooter. In either mode, you will be shooting at lions and wolves and bears. (Oh, my!) Despite some preposterous situations, I found the game-play pretty enjoyable and the story surprisingly entertaining. The controls were fairly tight and responsive, so no complaints there either.
Speaking of controls, this guide was written for the standard dual shock controller, but it's worth noting that this game supports the PS Move and a peripheral made by Activision called the Top Shot Elite. Even though the guide was written for the dual shock, it should be very easily adapted for the other two control schemes. The vast majority of this game trophywise is straight-forward and pretty easy. A few galleries may try your patience, but continual practice should ultimately allow you to persevere.
Step 1: Complete Story mode collecting all of the collectibles and getting all the story mode trophies along the way. During this step, you will unlock the bulk of the trophies for the game. You should be aiming to unlock the following trophies, in the following order:
Steady Hand, Great Scope
I See You
I Like Spicy Wings
What Does Indy Hate?
Bow In Front Of Me
Hair Away from Death
I am 99% sure that the above order is the order in which the trophies can first be unlocked.
I have compiled a comprehensive (revised) edition of the various collectible guides originally posted in the forum. It also contains some linked youtube video guides. Follow these resources carefully and you shouldn’t have to replay any levels for missed collectibles. Here is the link: Story Mode Collectibles. Remember to set your Hunter Sense to Classic in the option menu at the title screen. Among other things, this will make collecting the collectibles a lot easier.
The only trophy that I found that you will want to spread over out during the story mode is “Hair Away From Death". It requires that you nearly die 20 times. See that trophy's specific guide for more details.
Nevertheless, don't worry if you miss a collectible or don't get a trophy when I indicate. You can always go back and pick up any missed collectibles or unlock any of the missed story trophies via level select.
Step 2: Unlock and complete all of the Shooting Gallery Classic levels in Gallery mode with bronze medals or better. Here you are working to unlock the following:
For more info on unlocking the galleries and some tips, see that trophy's specific guide.
Step 3: Complete all of the possible paths in both Trek Shooting Galleries. Here you are trying to unlock the following:
See that trophy for more details.
Step 4: Survive the first Survival gallery for seven or more minutes. In this step, you're going for the following:
I Will Survive
The previous two steps will help hone your Gallery shooting skills which will be needed for this step. In my opinion, this is, hands down, the hardest trophy in the game. See it for more details.
Step 5: Clean up. Provided that you've followed the road map thus far, you'll have, at most, the following trophies left:
You'll almost definitely get the first two of these trophies during the previous steps, but there's a decent chance that you won't have the “Combo Wizard” trophy quite yet. Don't fret though, the hard part of the game is over. Just read the trophy specific guides to help you along with any of your remaining trophies and then you'll unlock
