Borderlands Trophy Guide by KoG73
Amount of trophies: A lot
Difficult: No (even I managed to get a platinum in 10 days) just time consuming, similar to fallout 3
Sexy women: Depends if you like gingers
ETA of obtaining all trophies:25-40 hours (at a guess)
What is needed: working ps3, game, spare time, a mate/American/mother-in-law, internet connection for certain trophies
Certain issues: Some trophies are known to not unlock for certain reasons, if this happens you’ll have to start another character and start again, known trophies to get `glitched` kill certain bosses, get a certain amount of kills with certain weapons and the 12 days of Pandora.
Which character should I choose if I'm new to the game?-soldier, you’ll find yourelf always using assault rifles and shotguns at the start of the game anyway…
Quick intro to the game,
Borderlands is a great game, it’s basically Fallout 3 with 4 player co-op, vehicles, a great sense of humour, no glitching (other than the trophy glitching, and mics occasionally not working), and refreshing graphics-cel-shaded. A lot of people say they didn’t buy the game due to being put off by the graphics, don’t be! The graphics are perfect, and are a lot more colourful than normal games. The game is an FPS meet RPG like fallout 3 (as you’ve probably guessed I like these types of games, 3 trophy guides 2 of which are based on FPRPG, or whatever you call em), the game, on last count, according to Borderlands wiki has 17.5 million different guns haven’t checked in ages so it has probably increased! Overall great game recommend you get it (especially if you liked fallout 3), my fave offline game and co-op game of the year easily (MW2 wins online for me),
Hey y’all once again it’s another one of those guides by KoG73, got to cut down on swear words this time, due to the fact I’m typing this on a school computer and I daresay the wanka of the school moderator is watching what im typing……so here we go
Paid in Fyrestone
Completed 5 missions in the Arid Badlands
Made in Fyrestone
Completed all missions in the Arid Badlands
Paid in New Haven
Completed 5 missions in the Rust Commons
Made in New Haven
Completed all missions in the Rust Commons
Ok an easy set of trophies, just play all the levels as you unlock them, I recommend that you do all possible missions before moving on to the next area, this will make levelling up a lot easier and I really enjoy some of those missions, such as killing skag zilla, king pee wee etc.
My Brother is an Italian Plumber
Killed an enemy plumber-style
It’s a me Mario!, quite an easy trophy if you know what your doing! Simply get a low level skag (like the ones outside Fyrestone) on your first playthrough, if you’re a high level jump on top of him until he dies, if your quite low, shoot him with a pistol to weaken him then jump on him, do this whilst saying a cheesy one liner in a Italian accent and your well on your way to becoming insane.
Race around the Ludicrous Speedway in record time
In the desert region (haven’t played the game for a long time, so cant remember names) in the top left is a race track, clear the area of those creatures doing a side-mission, then go there again in a car, race around, when you enter the cave take the short-cut on the left then do the jump, after a few tries you’ll get this trophy.
You call this archaeology?
Applied an elemental artefact
You’ll find one lying around after a couple of hours playing, just equip it and ding!
Earned level 5
Earned level 10
Earned level 20
Earned level 30
Earned level 40
Earned level 50
Time consuming, but do-able, I recommend doing the main levels on the 2nd playthrough and any side missions that gets you a load of xp, if your still stuck for xp and you haven’t completed the 2nd playthorugh, get a mate who has and get him to take you to the place with all those *SPOILER START* flying alien/guardian things *SPOILER ENDING* to get loads of xp
Discovered Skag Gully
Discovered Sledge's Safe House
Discovered Headstone Mine
Discovered Trash Coast
Discovered The Scrapyard
Discovered Krom's Canyon
Discovered Crimson Lance Enclave (and enclave doesn’t remind any of us about fallout 3, right)
Discovered Eridian Promontory
You’ll get these trophies simply by playing the game, not too hard then, unless your blind or something but still would a blind man be reading this? Better not get distracted…next trophy
Get A Little Blood on the Tires
Killed 25 enemies by ramming them with any vehicle
This is similar to how they get meat for my school canteen (but i reckon a Skag would taste better than the crap they serve), get a car go to fyrestone, and keep driving other the skags that are just outside there, also the raider (are they called raiders, I thought that was fallout 3!) camp has spawning enemies
Rootinest, Tootinest, Shootinest
Killed 5 Rakk in under 10 seconds
Get a big bad ass machine gun or turret gun on the cars, find a place with loads of rack, and fire away, not too hard, you can also use a shotgun and let em get close before taking them all out in 2-3 hits.
Sold 50 guns to a shop
When you first start the game, all you’ll be doing really is finding guns and selling them to get some money, so you should get this easily
Can't We Get BEYOND Thunderdome?
Emerged victorious from an arena match
Arena matches, are co-op only matches found in little buildings with the big flashing sign ARENA on top of it (bit of a give away), just get in a match and win, if the guy your playing Is too high a level and its taking forever to kill him, just get him to blow himself up with an rpg repeatedly
Won a duel against another player
To start a duel knife someone in co-op, then they knife you back, don’t do a duel with someone with too high as level otherwise you’ll be there for hours shooting and wasting ammo.
Group LF Healer
Rescued a groupmate from death in a co-op game
Once a guy go’s down in co-op go up to him t-bag (recommended but not needed) then revive him, nothing hard here then
There’s No “I” In “Team”
Completed 15 missions in co-op
Co-op’s so great in this game! Just keep playing away with your friends/American/mother-in-law and get that trophy!
Reached proficiency level 10 with any weapon type
I recommend that you use the assault rifles at the start of the game, especially when you get a 3 round burst combat rifle, these guns are hell accurate and deal serious damage unlike a drunk Pikachu
Killed 25 enemies with corrosive weapons
Killed 25 enemies with shock weapons
Killed 25 enemies with incendiary weapons
Killed 25 enemies with explosive weapons
These trophies have been known to glitch and not get unlocked, if this happens you will have to do them again on another save file! Not sure if they’ve patched it yet though….
There are some who call me…Tim
Equipped a class mod for your character
You’ll unlock a mod sooner or later in the game just equip and……..trophy unlock! Yay now onto the next
Rescued enough Claptraps to earn 42 inventory slots
Annoying to find them all but fear not I’ll quickly write down the area of them;
Crazy Earl’s Scrapyard
I personally found by searching google for broderlands cpaltrap loactions and clicking the first link (gamefaqs) was the easiest, but im not too sure on the whole link to another website so i wont post a direct link
But for all those whom prefer youtube vids, here you go (sorry that its on 360, but I'm no fanboy so I couldn’t care less)
Killed an enemy with the Siren’s action skill
Careful, He Bites
Killed 15 enemies with the Hunter’s action skill
Killed 15 enemies with the Berserker’s action skill
Down in Front!
Killed 15 enemies with the Soldier’s action skill
These trophies are boring but pretty easy, just create new saves (you can have more than one without deleting the old) then get to level 5, and start killing away you savage b*****d
12 Days of Pandora (hidden)
Mastered the technology of Pandora
Cant remember the complete list of stuff you have to do, but if you press select and get your pip boy, sorry I mean inventory out go to quests/missions press triangle (I think) you’ll see a list of challenges look out for the one called `12 days of Pandora` near the top, and do what it says, simples
You're on a boat! (hidden)
I bet you never thought you'd be here
There's a small boat in treachers landing with lights and flags on it, open up the map look at the bottom right, you should see a small dock, go there and the boats there. Go on it wait for it, wait for it……..i said wait for it, and ding another trophy down. For those whom have difficulties finding the boat
(slightly off topic, but that video has some of the best quality ive seen for a video game…..)
Won a duel without taking damage
Just get your mate/American/mother-in-law to let you kill them, and an easy trophy awaits
And They’ll Tell Two Friends
Played in a co-op game with either an employee of Gearbox or someone who had this trophy
Not too hard now this game has been out for awhile, you’ll probably get it straight away from joining a random co-op lobby
Not too hard again, due to the fact that you’ll constantly be selling guns for money, also please note you don’t need $1,000,000 in one hit its a cumulative score.
Wanted: Sledge (hidden)
Wanted: Krom (hidden)
Wanted: Flynt (also hidden)
Destroyed the Hive (and this one is hidden as well!)
Killed the Rakk Hive
Line em up and shoot em down, not too hard, the co-op really comes to life when taking out these bosses with your mate/American/mother-in-law especially the Rakk Hive where the classic line `is that his head or anus` never gets boring/old!
United We Stand (hidden)
Defeated the Rakk Hive, the Vault Boss, Sledge, Krom, or Flynt in a co-op game
This trophy is seriously easy to get, but you’ll do it again and again because co-op is so friggin awesome! If you are having difficulties and want this trophy early on, get a high level mate/American/mother-in-law to join you and let him do all the work, you still get all the xp and end of level rewards
Destroyed The Destroyer (another bloody hidden one!)
Killed the Vault Boss
“POSSIBLE SPOILER START” Not hard, recommend using the eridian weapon that fires massive blobs of stuff on him when his mouth is open and a strong combat rifle on his tentacles, this is the only thing that is bad about the game….the sudden ending…“POSSIBLE SPOILER END”
Congratulations you listened to kingofgames73’s trophy guide as a reward I shall give you a platinum trophy

Wait a minute, is it possible to play the game split screen co-cp?

The Mad Moxie DLC is a grind… … … … … And i love the grind, lolJanuary 28, 2010 at 3:05 pm #56382
This game has apparently been patched to fix the trophy issues.
“You Call this Archaeology?” trophy is easiest earned by doing the Crystal Cavern quest – you should be about level 15 for this.
For the arena match trophies – the first arena is in the Arid Badlands just north of Fyrestone. You go there to kill off 8 bandits for an early quest, and there is a hidden journal right next to it.
@knightmare – online trophies can be done in under an hour easy. Play up until you get to sledge, then switch to a public game. Kill Sledge. Duel someone and win without taking a hit. Go to the Arid Badlands arena and win. Done. The only one you can't get on split screen is “and they'll tell two friends” – and you can't get online while in splitscreen mode.January 28, 2010 at 11:54 pm #56419
Sweet thanks guys, I take it that nearly everyone has 'and they'll tell two friends' already though so that shouldn't be to hard.January 29, 2010 at 12:03 am #56421
I'd say pretty much… I have it if you need, but if you don't get it straight away when you try MP just exit and try another game until you do…
