[top]Tips and Strategies

If you are looking for a trophy guide for the DLC, here is a link to Dr. Ned's and one Mad Moxxi's Underdome

*There have some been some reports from people saying that on the gun killing trophies with each element, they couldn't get one of them even after meeting the requirements. All I can say if that has happened to you is get your normal player a high level, make a new character and boost it up to at least level 25 so you can pick up a elemental gun with them, then kill 25 skags in Fyrestone. By boosting this way you will need 2 controllers just to give a heads up. Check the spoiler for more help.

Note: All Elemental Weapons can be acquired in the Arid Badlands unless said otherwise.

All action skills are unlocked at level 5 which will probably be around the mission you go to kill 9 Toes. I would suggest doing all of these first so then you'll know which character that you actually will want to play with in the long run.


[top]Trophies

[top]
Borderland Defender
You have defeated all bosses and are a powerful force to be reckoned with

[top]
Paid in Fyrestone
Completed 5 missions in the Arid Badlands


See Made in Fyrestone

[top]
Made in Fyrestone
Completed all missions in the Arid Badlands


All I can say is that to check every possible person that you gives you missions to make sure you don't forget any missions. Refer to This for a checklist if you need it.

Note: There are a few missions once you get into New Haven asking you go back to the Arid Badlands. So if you don't get it when you first leave, then you will have to do these missions first.

[top]
Paid in New Haven
Completed 5 missions in the Rust Commons


See Made in New Haven

[top]
Made in New Haven
Completed all missions in the Rust Commons


As said in Made in Fyrsetone, you're going to have to check every person and every Bounty Board in every area past New Haven to get this done. And again, just refer to This to count off the side missions.

And yes, Claptrap missions do count to this

[top]
Wanted: Sledge
Killed Sledge


As it states, you have to kill Sledge. You go to fight him in the Headstone Mine anywhere around levels 13-18 on the mission called Sledge: Battle For The Badlands. I would suggest shooting him from a distance as he's more dangerous up close so if he chargers you, avoid it then step back and keep shooting.

[top]
Wanted: Krom
Killed Krom


Go to kill Krom on the mission The Next Piece given to you by Crazy Earl around level 25. If I were you, I would try to go through each area of enemies while trying to take some cover from his turret. The only way I'll suggest trying to take out his turret first is if you have a good sniper or a good RPG.

[top]
Wanted: Flynt
Killed Flynt


Flynt is in the Salt Flats. You go to kill him in the mission The Final Piece around level 30. Given to you by Tannis. To kill him, take out all enemies around you first, go up to the second level, then start shooting him.

[top]
Destroyed the Hive
Killed the Rakk Hive


You go to fight this boss in the mission Another Piece Of The Puzzle in Trash Coast. It doesn't say Rakk Hive specifically, the objective says "Challenge Overcome" but it's him.

Critical Spots to aim for: his eyes, they are on each side of him and keep hitting all of them until it says it isn't critical anymore.

[top]
Destroyed the Destroyer
Killed the Vault Boss


Final boss in the game. You fight him in the mission Destroy The Destroyer but you'll easily know when you're fighting him.

Critical Spot: The eye where it shows the only opening on its body. Keep shooting there while running around back and forth to avoid its attacks

[top]
Can't We Get BEYOND Thunderdome
Emerged victorious from an arena match


The first time you can use an Arena is in Fyrestone after the mission where you go kill 8 Bandits. In that area there is a subway looking entrance where you just go down the stairs and it will ask you to enter the Arena. Be the first to win 3 rounds against an opponent and the trophy is yours.

[top]
Duel-icious
Won a duel against another player


See Duelinator

[top]
Group LF Healer
Rescued a groupmate from death in a co-op game


It's inevitable for one of your friends to die unless they are at an extremely higher level than what you're facing so either wait to go revive them then or just get a friend to die without a fight and go revive him then.

[top]
There's no "I" in "Team"
Completed 15 missions in co-op


Easiest time to get this out of the way are the first 15 missions in the game as most of them go by pretty quick, but either way this can be acquired anytime throughout the story mode. Just keep playing with a friend until you get it.

[top]
Duelinator
Won a duel without taking damage


Get a friend to do this with. Comes hand in hand with Duel-icious just make sure the person you're dueling doesn't attack you.

[top]
And They'll Tell Two Friends
Played in a co-op game with either an employee or someone who has this trophy


Just like the Killed a Rockstar trophy in GTAIV, this should be a quick trophy for you to obtain. Either join a friend that has it or join a public co-op game and I guarantee in one of the first 3 games you join someone will have it.

[top]
United We Stand
Defeated the Rakk Hive, the Vault Boss, Sledge, Krom, or Flynt in a co-op game


Very easy gold to obtain, all it involves is having 2 controllers or an online connection. I would suggest getting this trophy out of the way against Sledge as he is the first boss you can do this against and it would be quite some time before you have a chance to do it again but it's really up to you.

[top]
My Brother Is An Italian Plumber
Killed an enemy plumber-style


Referring to a "Mario" kill, you just have to jump on an enemy to do this. I would suggest going Fyrestone and repeatedly jump on a Pup Skag until it dies.

[top]
Speedy McSpeederton
Raced around the Ludicrous Speedway in record time


There's a mission in the Dahl Headlands where you have to go kill 50 Scythid in this area so by then you should know where it is. Just follow the video to know what direction to go through. (Skip to 45 Seconds for starting to the lap)

[top]
You call this archaeology?
Applied an elemental artifact


The first elemental artifact you will get is after you kill Sledge. Once you pick it up, go to your backpack, find the artifact and hit to apply it to your action skill.

[top]
Fence
Sold 50 guns to a shop


Out of the 1 million+ plus guns, you only have to sell 50. Just pick up every weapon dropped until you get it but you'll get it no matter what at some point.

[top]
Weapon Afficiondo
Reached proficiency level 10 with any weapon type


Leveling up a proficiency on a gun is depending on how much XP you get while having it out killing things. You should get this trophy probably around your mid 20s levels if you stay consistent using the same type of gun.

Of course if you want it fast, get a friend at a high level to go kill things and keep your gun out and it should go up pretty fast.

[top]
There are some who call me...Tim
Equipped a class mod for your character


The first Class Mod I got was around the time when I was going to Sledge's Safehouse around level 15 or so. But either way, you can buy one or just pick one up to equip it.

[top]
Fully Loaded
Rescued enough Claptraps to earn 42 inventory slots


These aren't really that hard as all locations for the Claptraps are on your way to some kind of mission. Please follow This Thread to find out where they are at (thanks to tripledt for the thread)

Also here is a Picture Guide to pinpoint where the Claptraps are: (look on the map to see which location it is)

You're on a Boat!
Bet you never thought you would be there


The boat is in Treacher's Landing. It's in the back of the area. Look at the video to know where to go.

[top]
12 Days in Pandora
Mastered the technology of Pandora


Very weird trophy but you need different amounts of kills with different weapons:

[top]
Pandora-dog Millionaire
Earned $1,000,000


To clarify anything, this is $1,000,000 total, you don't have to have it on you even though you will easily by the end of the game. Just keep picking up dropped items and selling them to get this.

Ding! Champion
Earned level 50


Definitely the hardest trophy in the game in my opinion. When you start your second playthrough, you'll probably be around level 36 or 37 meaning you have 13 or 14 levels to go through. And to be honest with you , the 2nd playthrough is definitely no cake walk. Enemies are harder and it takes a lot more bullets to take them down. On the flip side, since you already played through the game, you should be able to go through it much faster.

Now getting to level 50, there is no exact time period on where you can get this. It depends on many factors including if you play by yourself or with a friend. I got to level 50 at around 2/3 of the way done with the game. This was doing ALL side missions too. So all I can say is kill every enemy on every mission to get as much XP as possible.

And of course, there is always an alternate route to this. If you have some friends that are over level 45 or even at level 50, try to convince them to let you play a co-op game with them and just let them do all the killing to powerlevel you.

Discovered Skag Gully
Discovered Skag Gully


Either the first or second trophy you should get. You enter Skag Gully after you get the mission from TK telling you to go kill 9 Toes (who also has 3 balls)

[top]
Discovered Sledge's Safehouse
Discovered Sledge's Safehouse


You will get to Sledge's Safehouse anywhere between level 13-18. It's on the mission where you have to go find the gate key to the Headstone Mine and you go through the Arid Hills to get to the Safehouse.

Mission: Sledge: To The Safe House - Level 14

[top]
Discovered Headstone Mine
Discovered Headstone Mine


The mission right after you get the Gate Key and discover Sledge's Safehouse. If that doesn't help, it's the mission where you have to kill Sledge.

Mission: Sledge: Battle For The Badlands - Level 17

[top]
Discovered Trash Coast
Discovered Trash Coast


You go to Trash Coast to fight the Rakk Hive a little while after you kill Krom.

Mission: Another Piece of the Puzzle - Level 27

[top]
Discovered The Scrapyard
Discovered The Scrapyard


Referring to Crazy Earl's Scrapyard, you'll get this trophy after you talk to Tannis in Rust Commons West after getting into New Haven and she'll assign you this mission.

Mission: Meet 'Crazy' Earl - Level 22

[top]
Discovered Krom's Canyon
Discovered Krom's Canyon


Get this on the way to killing Krom. Crazy Earl assigns you the missions leading you to Krom's Canyon.

Mission: The Next Piece - Level 25

[top]
Discovered Crimson Lance Enclave
Discovered Crimson Lance Enclave


Second to last place you go to. You go through here while on the mission where you have to deactivate the 3 stations. Be sure to not confuse this place with Crimson Fastness, the place you go to beforehand in order to get to the Enclave.

Mission: Reactivate the ECHO Comm System - Level 31

[top]
Discovered Eridian Promontory
Discovered Eridian Promontory


Last place you'll visit in the Story Mode. You enter here on the last mission where you have to go find Commander Steele.

Mission: Find Steele - Level 32

[top]
Facemelter
Killed 25 enemies with corrosive weapons


The first corrosive weapon you'll get is in the Dahl Headlands when you have to go and rescue Lucky. After that mission is when you'll be able to start picking up a lot of corrosive weapons.

[top]
1.21 Gigawatts
Killed 25 enemies with shock weapons


I can't recall when the first time I received a shock weapon, I'm pretty sure it's around the time you go to the Lost Cave to collect the 50 Shock Crystals. You should find at least one gun in there somewhere if you haven't had one already to get.

[top]
Pyro
Killed 25 enemies with incendiary weapons


The first Incendiary gun that you get is after you kill 9 Toes as you're able to pick up his Repeater. Just go out and start killing some skags once you get the gun and it should come quick

[top]
Master Exploder
Killed 25 enemies with explosive weapons


Yes grenades do count in this so that could be the fastest way to get this if you are impatient. If you don't mind waiting, the first RPG that you'll acquire is around the time that you go to Headstone Mine to kill Sledge. Unless you're lucky to pick up a gun with the explosive element already attached to it.

[top]
Get A Little Blood on the Tires
Killed 25 enemies by ramming them with any vehicle


Very easy trophy to get. You are able to use the Catch-a-Ride circuit once you kill Bone Head which is around level 10. Once you get it just start mowing down enemies as there is a mission that requires you to get 10 roadkills anyway

[top]
Rootinest, Tootinest, Shootinest
Killed 5 Rakk in under 10 Seconds


Easiest place to do this is in Skag Gully. Now right after you kill 9 Toes and exit the little mine area, continue straight and go up the hill. When you get there you will see 5 or 6 Rakk flying at you. Wait for them to all fly down at once to attack you and just lay some bullets into them.

Even if you don't get it here, there are a ton of Rakk everywhere so it will come soon enough.

[top]
Truly Outrageous
Killed an enemy with the Siren's action skill


The reason for this trophy saying to only get 1 kill with the Phasewalk is because it gives less damage than the others. So I would just shoot an enemy until it gets to half health left then activate the Action Skill. If he still doesn't die, melee him in Phasewalk and that should do it.

[top]
Careful, He Bites
Killed 15 enemies with the Hunter's action skill


Get 15 kills with Bloodwig, very simple just takes a bit longer because he will only kill one enemy at a time. So just activate when you're around a swarm of enemies to get a kill. Just repeat 14 more times and the trophy is yours.

[top]
Reckless Abandon
Killed 15 enemies with the Berserker's action skill


This trophy will come very fast as you can easily get 4 or 5 kills each time you activate his skill. Just activate, then start beating the crap out of enemies.

[top]
Down In Front!
Killed 15 enemies with the Soldier's action skill


The turret needs to kill 15 enemies. It will probably take out 2 or 3 enemies per activation so it will take a little while to get. But just keep activating it around hordes of skags and it should come easily.
