  1. One other suggestion, I was using a PS4 controller when I beat it. It's been so long since I used a real DS3 I forget how precise they are, but it's something to consider if you're struggling.
  2. I may as well put this here for anyone needing it in the future: Wave 1: Easy. Take down the red robots with the assault rifle at will while rolling and in AR mode. Once they're done, invite the Crystal Viper on to you and use the square button QTE to take his health away with minimal fuss. Two shotgun blasts for each time he's downed after the QTE. Kill the CV somewhere on top of the steps where you start the challenge. Wave 2: In between waves, boost over behind the statue. Launch a grenade at the two groups of three robots that spawn to the left and right. I don't think I managed to hit all of them at any point, but if you can take some out it helps. Do some rolling around here to avoid getting hit as you wait for the two sets of five flying robots to pop up. Throw an EMP grenade to take them out. Kill the bogey with the heavy machine gun in AR mode. Make sure to kill the things he sends up when he says 'aim carefully', although if you're shooting at him when he does this you'll hit them anyway. Once he's done, swap the shotgun for an LFE gun and switch back to normal grenades, then mop up any stray robots you missed with the grenades at the start. Wave 3: Start behind the rubble to the side of the map you see in the video. Throw a grenade out to take out the spawn of five normal robots, then aim with the LFE gun at where the flamethrower Romanov appears. It seemed like I could only hit this properly 50% of the time, but if you hit him right he'll fall on his front and you can shoot the gas tank. I think on my successful run this failed and I had to take them all out manually. Whatever the case, after the start, dodge out from your cover and go up the stairs where you spawned at the start of the challenge. It's easier to dodge up here. Use the HMG to shoot the heads off. After the first 4/5 bullets their heads will snap back. Come out of AR mode at that point and wait for their heads to be targets again. I found it easier to do this than trying to aim with the disc launcher. You need to be in AR mode whenever you're shooting something by this point, so make sure you don't overheat. Wave 4: This is when I started relying on luck more than preparation. You can take out the three balls with the LFE to start with, then boost over to the ledge where the first turret comes up. That's fine. The rest is a crapshoot. You need two LFE shots to take out the blue jumping robots, so unless you can line up 4/5/6 of them after you've taken out the turret and they've followed you over, you're screwed. Do that if you can, and if you need to throw an EMP grenade here you can. However you do it, get to the stairs again. Take out the second turret (aiming for the robot's legs is quicker, you can do it with either the assault rifle or heavy machine gun) and make sure none of the scorpions hit you. The scorpions are really annoying because their weak spot is hard to hit, so you might need to stock up on heavy machine gun ammo a few times. Before you kill the last one, make sure you have full LFE ammo and the lock-on laser. I'd also recommend filling the ammo for whatever rifle you still have left. Wave 5: It took me a few tries and watches of that video to see what to do. The balls spawn in three sets of three. They all spawn at different times, so you can shoot one then wait for the others. Shoot the first one with the LFE, then throw an EMP. You don't have to, but I did to help calm things down while waiting for the spawns. If you miss any of the balls target them first. They all go down to one LFE shot, so dodge and roll wherever you have to to get them exposed and dead. There are various strategies for dealing with the two bogeys, but at this point I can only describe what happened to me. I got fairly close twice before I beat it, but my successful run was the only time I managed to get either of them down. It's difficult to really aim at one in particular with the LOL because they move so fast, but I tried to hit the blue one. I used a full LOL on him, going into AR mode every time and constantly rolling anywhere in between to let it recharge. At some point here you need to pick up the EMP grenades, just in case you need some time. I refilled the LOL with the upgrade the Crystal Viper dropped in the first wave and carried on with the same strategy. I think I ended up in the red once, maybe twice. Keep rolling as far away from they bogeys as you can to try and limit this. Just go in a big circle, round the stairs, down, through the statue, back up to the top. Once the blue bogey was gone it became a bit easier to handle the second. Filled up the LOL again and ended up with maybe 10% of his health left when I ran out. I was up on the stairs at the back. I took cover while he unloaded his purple rain attack thing, fortunately the instant death laser didn't come out much. I had about 20 HMG bullets left and by the time I'd finished those he had about a pixel worth of health left and I had no ammo. The LFE wasn't hitting him. Luckily I was next to an assault rifle on the ground and managed to pick it up. In general, the best advice I can give is: - Move, constantly. - If you take cover, and you can if you need to, go for stuff that's solid. The stone bannisters at the stairs are the best, unless you're surrounded you'll always be able to put one of those between you and whatever you're trying to kill to buy you some time. - Know where you have to be to start each wave and what to do. Efficiency is your best friend, killing stuff as quickly as you can before dealing with the big boy in each wave. - I need to repeat the first one. MOVE. Don't stop moving. Don't worry if it takes you a few tries to get used to rolling around the whole map. Once you get the hang of all of those things it becomes easier. I think that's it. The only other advice I'd say is take breaks in between waves if you have to. Relax. Know what you're doing and how to do it, you'll be fine.
  3. It's worth it when you finish. I'd say it's about 80% knowing what to do/where to be and 20% luck hoping something doesn't hit you.
  4. Getting into a decent pace for the year now, Platinum #108 was an Interactive Adventure with inexplicably immature characters purporting to be teenagers, Life is Strange: What If? Unlock all other trophies from Life Is Strange™ I don't know why it's not showing up. It's not invisible like flow's was. The small version works in the OP. Oh well. Platinum #109 was an Interactive Adventure with inexplicably immature characters purporting to be teenagers, Until Dawn: A Symphony of Horror Trophies You collected all Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies in Until Dawn If you're wondering: Ashley, Sam, Jessica, Dead Beth, Wendigo Hannah, the Stranger, Emily.
  5. Platinum #107 was much quicker and a lot less terrifying, Day of the Tentacle Remastered: OCD Get all other trophies in the game
  6. With Platinum #106 I discovered I like horror games! Amnesia: Collection Insanity Achieved all other trophies. And since they added a hard mode to the game on the day I got the Platinum, I got to finish that and have a 0.15% 100% on my profile, which is cool too.
  7. I am playing it right now, and I was wondering why it was getting patched. It's free.
  8. Platinum #105 is the same as Platinum #104, inFamous Second Son: Enjoy Your Powers Collect all trophies
  9. Big fan.
  10. Platinum #104 is one of the first PS4 games and proof that you should never buy a console at launch, Knack: Ultimate Knack Received all trophies
  11. Driving that Lotus with a DS4 might be the thing that pushes me over the edge and makes me get a wheel
  12. Platinum #102 is a worrying sign for AAA sandboxes, Just Cause 3: King of Medici Earned all Just Cause 3 Trophies Platinum #103 is what you'd get if you combined Burnout Paradise, a Motorstorm and Fortnite, managing to carry forward none of the real positives about any of those, Onrush: ONRUSH Obtain all trophies in ONRUSH™
  13. Whoops. Happy flying, everyone.
  14. AC4 is a pre-order bonus for the Xbox version, surely that will come to PS4 too? As for 7, can't wait to see the average MP time. Many many hours, hopefully.
  15. Platinum #101... yes, it was on purpose, is Fallout 3: Platinum Trophy Collect all 50 other Trophies for this Trophy I'm now done with PS3 games. Get ready for lots more entries to this checklist.
