Man vs Wild is a survival game based on the television show on the Discovery Channel. There is one training level and five episodes. There is a completion trophy for each of these. There is also one trophy for reaching a certain level and one for not becoming incapacitated (potentially glitched, see Born Survivor for more info). The rest of the trophies are collectibles so expect to spend much more time in the Collectible Thread.
Step 1 - Complete the game and get all the collectibles
There are five chapters plus a tutorial level. You can play on normal difficulty. Each episode (excluding the training level) has a number of collectible sets within them. There are two or three sets of collectibles in each episode. If you don't get all of the collectibles within a specific set during each level, you will need to use Episode Select to go back and get them. They do not save after you complete a level so you will need to get each of them again if you miss one. Same is true if you restart a checkpoint or become incapacitated. These are the collectible trophies, by chapter:
Reminders of the Rush
Pack Rat Grylls
All God's Creatures
Patton Was Here
These Belong in a Museum
Nice Place You Had Here
Hard to Pronounce, Hard to Find
Please follow the text and video guides in this thread: Collectible Thread. In addition to not missing any collectibles, try to avoid being incapacitated. See Born Survivor for more information. If you do manage to get incapacitated, just remember which chapters it occurs in and you can clean it up in Step 2.
Step 2 - Complete each episode without becoming incapacitated and collectible cleanup
You will need to complete the game without becoming incapacitated for Born Survivor. Try to complete each chapter during your first playthrough without becoming incapacitated. Any episode where you see the "Bear is Incapacitated" screen with the option to exit or continue, will need to be redone. After completing the game the first time, just play any chapter you pass out in through episode select. However, this trophy can glitch. See Born Survivor for more information. For any collectibles that you have failed to complete, this is the time to get them.
Step 3 - Reach the Level 'Bear Grylls'
You gain SP (Survivor Points) for doing certain activities. This includes building fires, making camps and killing animals. You will need 8,000 SPs. The quickest way to level up is to replay the first episode (not the tutorial) and complete as many tricks in the skydiving section. Once on the ground, and after an autosave, you can restart the skydiving section and repeat this until you reached level 8.
