Brutal difficulty w/ tweaks - here's some up-to-date info

21 posts in this topic

You're pretty much fucked if you got the digital version. As far as I'm aware there is no way to revert to version 1.00 in Uncharted 2.

 

Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 3 however, still have a workable glitch even with the patches installed.

Be the man, do it without tweaks =) It is possible and I can say (because I did it) that there are only few places where I sat more than 1 hour (less than 2 and a half).

I have finished Brutal difficulty run with tweaks couple days ago and thought clearly written step-by-step instructions might be useful for some people.

This time, the steps are different compared to Uncharted 1.

 

Game info:

Type: Physical (The Nathan Drake Collection)

Version: 1.00 - no patch (I tried this with 1.02 and couldn't get it to work)

 

Before you start:

- I'd suggest making a backup of your save in case something terrible happens.

- You'll have to make sure your PS4 does not install patch 1.02. Either go offline or make sure you stop the patch once it starts downloading.

  (In my case, I went offline)

 

Steps to start new game with tweaks enabled:

0. Finish the game on Crushing difficulty.

1. Go to chapter select, choose first chapter, set difficulty to Brutal and start the chapter. Save dialog will appear - choose the active save and overwrite it.

2. First chapter starts by hanging down from a derailed train. Once you can control Nate, press Options button.

3. Go to "Options" -> "Game" -> "Difficulty" - set it to "Crushing", press O 2x and you should be in the main Options screen.

4. Go to "Bonuses" -> "Rewards" -> "Tweaks" and enable tweaks you like. Unlimited ammo and 1-shot kills are probably what you want.

5. Press O 2x and you should be in the main Options screen once again. Choose "Quit to Main Menu".

6. You should appear in the main menu screen of Uncharted 2.

7. Go to chapter select, first chapter should be "pre-selected" and the difficulty should be set to "Crushing". Change it to "Brutal" but don't start the chapter.

8. Go back to main Uncharted 2 menu. Choose "Continue" and the game should start in chapter 1 where you were previously.

9. Press Options button and check the difficulty - it should be set to "Brutal". Check tweaks afterwards. They should be enabled with red "disabled" sign on the left side.

 

At this point, tweaks are enabled on Brutal difficulty and you are good to go. You can test them further down in chapter 1 once you find pistol.

When playing the game later again, choose "Continue" in the main menu, not chapter select.

Personally, I have always made sure I played on 1.00 but I have read somewhere that once you enable tweaks on Brutal, even with patch installed it should just work.

 

If everything worked correctly:

- enabled tweaks should become part of your save

- you should not need to enable them again for this particular run even if you quit the game, turn off the console and later load your save

- you should not need to enable them again if you die in the game

- if you go to main menu, choose "Chapters", you should see all finished chapters marked with Brutal difficulty

 

Hope this helps someone. 1f44c.png

Doesn't this also work for crushing mode, if you've completed hard?

Yep, indeed it works for Crushing difficulty as well.

@HusKyCode Do you have the Nathan Drake Collection or did you get the standalone Uncharted 2 Remastered? I got the standalone version and since it came out one year later than the collection, I think it comes fully patched... I even tried updating the game past 1.00 and it just says that 1.00 is the most recent version.

 

(Please someone tell me otherwise)

It's mentioned in the first post but yeah, I have the ND Collection.

It's very well possible that a standalone version came out fully patched which might make this exploit impossible.

If I have already done crushing using patch 1.02, when i delete the game data can i still load the saves so that i do not have to do crushing mode over again to use this glitch?

Your save is compatible with v1.00, don't worry.

Just finished the game on crushing and finding this thread brightened my day. Crushing in this game was as much of a bullshit experience as brutal was in Uncharted 1, if not worse. There would have been no way for me to talk myself into going through a real brutal run in a game that is designed this badly, it makes Uncharted 1 look fair in comparison. This game honestly does not deserve an honest brutal playthrough, so I am glad to see that it can be glitched to make it more bearable.

Will this work after you've beaten the crushing without tweaks?  -- Will deleting the patch make my game profile file incompatible with v1.0? 👁️👃👁️

 

EDIT*  I just noticed a few posts up someone ask the same question... Dont I feel spun.. :P

It will work. The save files are compatible.

Thank you.  And for typing up the step by step for the tweaks!  Great work.  I know I could beat this normally but since the 100% requires 3 playthroughs I will be using tweaks.  And besides, Brutal is too brutal ... So here we go.... :P

 

Just playing U2 now on Brutal.  It's weird cause U1's Crushing (without tweaks) was harder than U2's Crushing (without tweaks)  But it's visa-a-versa on Brutal with tweaks.  U2's Brutal is harder than U1's.

I believe this is O 3x.

I don't think so.

Digital, no.  Physical, yes.  Just delete the game and reinstall but don’t accept patch update.  You will be on v1.00 though.

If using digital, you'd have to delete the game, then download while using the proxy method, I'd assume.

I finished Uncharted 1 on crushing and I can think of plenty of things I'd rather do than play through brutal such as doing my taxes while pounding back mustard flavored milkshakes.

 

I can honestly say that beating it on Crushing is probably the hardest thing I've ever done in the world of video games.

 

Wait no, Uncharted 4 on crushing was harder. Agonizingly. Hard.
