[EDF 2025] Coop loading is so bad like 7+ minutes.

EDF 2025 is slow loading. I wouldn't recommend you playing it online if it's that slow as it's going to be tough for others, and the servers don't like that very much, specially with 3 or 4 players (with 4 usually shit happens).
EDF 4.1 is a lot better. Almost no slow downs except if you rapier a shield or level down half the city at the same time. And a lot faster loading. It's also more fun as many of the levels and weapons become usable, which doesn't happen on 2025 specially in coop.
Anyway game isn't difficult, take it easy. If you want to plat it concentrate on the 100% weapons, that's the PITA trophy.
EDF games are a blast online with the right people.
EDF 2 you'll never finish it without online or 25.000+ (probably 50.000...) armor. Yes, it's that difficult, AdHoc with 2 Vitas will not help on Inferno believe me. I think there's only 1 player who could finish EDF 2 offline alone, and still with some reasonable armor.
If you have any problems drop me a note I'll help with hints.
Have fun, the games are really awesome if you get the hang of them.
Last advice, strategy is more important than shooting.
You will get tons of ultra rare trophies BTW... but this you already know.
I have no illusions of platinuming any of these really. It's too much work to farm weapons, and I don't think I'll even bother with Inferno. I'm just playing for fun really. It's a good time killer. And doesn't really involve a lot on the lower difficulties.
And yeah, it doesn't take a whole lot to start getting lots of rare trophies. Or even get above the average completion rating into an A-rank. Some of the trophies I noticed even have higher percentages on PSN itself than on here, so clearly a lot of EDF fans not on this site being tracked.
I have 4.1 installed from PS Now too, I was going to just change to it instead of 2025 but i started 2025 a long time ago so figured I'd just keep going with it for awhile. At least beat the game once.
Honestly the games are really only interesting on hardest or inferno.That's another major problem for everyone trying them. The only positive thing about this is that at the third EDF game or so you'll skip everything and jump into inferno as soon as you can.
Farming weapons on 2025 and 4.1 is a piece of cake. At least on split screen. Use the WD since she's the easiest to learn and win with, but the AR is by far the most powerful class. Fencer is a pain, way to long to learn and doing most levels with him is a bore as it's attack and run away, ad nauseum. And he can't do several inferno levels anyway. Ranger is nice but on inferno he can't handle most levels alone. But I still remember the first time I reached Star Eaters on 2025 (on normal...) and thinking, how the fuck is anyone able to finish this?
I have mostly finished the japanese 2025 just a few days ago (inferno and 100% weapons, so yes it's finished) and I used the "reverse weapons" farming technique (something dumb i made up 😆). I jumped into inferno really early and only farmed weapons basically on levels 60+ and after 2 or 3 plays on levels 75+. That way I could only get weapons levels 35+. The PITA are the 87+ to get but I ended getting all of them while still missing more than 100 of the 700 something. It made it a lot easier. Compare that to 200 hours just to get 1 weapon on the american game and you can guess why I changed techniques.
You can do easily or reasonably, all levels alone with one of the classes except maybe 2 which are only easy with another human player. Believe me you don't even need 5000 armor on the classes you really used. I can do all except those 2 alone with less than 2000 armor and I'm a really bad FPS player.
On 4.1 you can do all more easily except 1, which is still easier than the 2 on 2025. And the last level on 4.1 is a PITA, it can be done with AR or WD in a few minutes but it's unreliable.
Try 4.1 if you don't like 2025, but you'll find it difficult to get back once you do. 5 is supposed to be fun but I've not yet bought it.
There's japanese players that manage to do all inferno starting from basic armor, with the 3 classes (no one has done it with fencer I think). There's even guys that manage to do the worst levels in 4.1 with 150 armor...
