[top]Introduction

DiRT 3 is the next installment in the Colin McRae Rally series, and shifts the main focus back to rallying which most fans will rejoice in, there is also the HUGE introduction of Gymkhana to the series which will be your secondary focus along will the DC Challenges.
This is also the harder game for achieving the Platinum medal as every DC Challenge you must obtain a Platinum medal in itself, this will require a great deal of skill and patience so for the casual racer this will make this a fairly hard Platinum to obtain.

Good Luck

Achieve a Platinum medal in all of the Gymkhana Academy tutorials

You need to achieve a platinum medal in end of the Gymkhana Academy Tutorial, it will prove to be a challenge you will just need to keep practicing

Here's tips for some of the tutorials:
  • Jump - Hit the jumps as fast and as straight as you can, when you come to turn round stay as close to and be as quick as you can round the barrels/girder
  • Drift - This one takes practice, you need to be flawless and if you go through a gate without gaining any points you may as well start again. Just keep up your speed and keep the tightest line that you can
  • Smash - The easiest out of all the tutorials, watch the video for the best route to take and just be as quick as you can
  • Spin - You will really be pushing yourself with this one, you need to keep your spins really fast and tight and if you muck round when driving between the 2 spin areas you will cost yourself crucial time
  • Donut - Don't even bother with the large donut area, alternate between the small and and be flawless

Crash Proof
Use a flashback in the DiRT Tour after receiving terminal damage and then go on to win the race

Simple enough
When you are in the service area before your race you need to go into assists and turn damage from VISUAL ONLY to FULL, then start the race (any track is easy enough) and when you are at or close to full throttle crash into the house, tree or solid object thats on the side of the road.

This video should help you out

Cool Running
Beat the Bobsleigh in the Norway Speed Run DC Challenge

One of the tougher DC Challenges, you will only beat the Bobsleigh if you obtain the Platinum Medal

The key to winning is speed and corner cutting, you can actually drive on the inside or run over the gate cones, just as long as you touch them when you are going through the gate points.
Also, try to limit braking to only the hairpin corners, for the others just back off the gas and then try to power through the corner


Heres a video of the Platinum Medal being obtained

Platinum Performance
Achieve Platinum medals in all of the DC Challenges

Arguably the hardest trophy in the game, this requires getting a Platinum Medal in all 26 DC Challenges, this is going to cause numerous restarts and plenty of frustration but you will get it by just being patient and practicing.

Heres a few tips to help to help you out:
  • Memorize each course or stage so you know every corner
  • Don't be afraid to use Flashbacks, they can be lifesavers, if you think you could of cut a second off your last corner or could have drifted for longer just quickly use a flashback

Road Trip

Joyride is found in Jam Session, click Create Game and wait for other people to join.
The trophy requires you to complete a Joyride with 3 or more people and NO ONE MUST LEAVE, If someone leaves you may as well quit and try again.

[top]

[top]
Taking the Trophy
Win 10 online games (Pro Tour or Jam Session)

This is quite easily picked up on your road towards Super Star

This trophy requires you to win at least 10 matches in Pro Tour or Jam Session.
The best method to rack up wins is to pick teams events as each team win count as a win for you.

Otherwise if you having trouble get as least one friend together and boost this is Jam Session.

[top]
The Road Ahead
Complete 25 online games (Pro Tour or Jam Session)

You do not even need to worry about this one as by the time you reach Level 35 for Super Star you will be well over 25 games played.

[top]
Honorable Driver
Complete an online multiplayer race with a ‘Cautious’ rating

NOTE - It is recommended to go for this first as gaining a white status will give you bonus fans when trying to reach Level 35.

Like DiRT 2 you have a little coloured symbol next to your name which shows what your impact rating is, you will start off on Green and you ultimately want to get to White.

Go to Pro Tour >Solo >Circuit Racing as Impact Ratings are on for all Pro Tour circuit races.
As the race starts just hang back a little bit and let the other racers go ahead on you, when they have just carry on with the race taking alot of care NOT TO HIT ANYTHING, try not to muck around though as you will be at risk of the other racers lapping you and crashing into you as they do.
Be aware that you must also keep moving or else you will be disqualified from the race so you cannot just sit off to the side of the track somewhere.
Complete between 5-7 races like this and you should notice you status change to White, when it does just complete the race and this trophy will pop.

[top]
Steer Hunter
Complete a game of Invasion without any negative points (Pro Tour)

Invasion is the online version of Smash Attack, all you need to do is go around smashing the robots and make sure that you DO NOT hit any of the cardboard buildings as this will give you a negative point

You do not need to win

[top]
Can't Touch This!
Remain uninfected in a round of Outbreak (Pro Tour or Jam Session)

This is one of the more fun party games in DiRT 3, When the game starts 1 player is picked as the infected and marked with a green colour of the minimap.

To earn this you must not be picked as the infected player at the start and then go out to keep from being hit by the infected player for the full 2 minute round.

This is easily boosting with friends

[top]
Cheeze It!
Be the mouse in a Cat n Mouse game where your team has gone on to win the game (Jam Session)

In the mode there are 2 teams with the team being made up of 1 mouse and the rest cats, make sure you are the mouse for your team and reach the finish line before the opposing teams mouse while your teammates protect you.
If your helping any trouble grab a group of friends to help you out

[top]
Flag Stealer
Steal the flag from the opposing team 5 times in a game of Transporter (Pro Tour)

Besides Super Star this would be the most difficult online trophy to gain.

This must be done in Pro Tour so the chances of boosting this are slim unless you can get a good group of friends together and find each other in a match.
To gain this you must hit the player who has the flag 5 times in a single game, be aware that some games have a time limit on them so you must be quick.

There are two methods depending on how many people are online:
  • If you find yourself in a match with 1-2 other players try and be the first to reach the flag then go get yourself in a tight corner and face away from it so the other person will hit you head on, that way when they do you should just be able to drive straight back into them to win back the flag, rinse and repeat.
  • If you get in a game that has 6+ people once again try be first to gain the flag and again so get yourself into a corner, is several cars come at you together then it should become a pile-up and the flag should bounce around until someone is able to get out, this method is more luck based.

[top]
Join the Party
Win a game in each of the multiplayer party modes (Pro Tour or Jam Session)

You must win a race in each of the following party modes:
  • Invasion
  • Transporter
  • Outbreak
  • Cat n Mouse



Keep trying with this and you should get it on the way to Super Star
If you having trouble see the Boosting Thread

[top]
King of the Road
Win an online race in Hardcore Mode

This one can be tricky as most people who play this mode are extremely good
You must select Hardcore under Pro Tour or Jam Session and by 'Hardcore' is means you race without the HUD or any Assists, you also cant pick your track or which car you drive as its randomly generated.
If your having trouble you may need to organize a boosting team.

[top]
Super Star
Earn enough fans to achieve the Superstar title

In multiplayer instead of receiving rep for every race you win you gain fans which raises you Level. To achieve the Superstar title you must reach Level 35.

The amount of fans you must get to reach Level 35 is 250,000

A tip you gaining you more fans is to be Cautious and check you status in the white as you earn an extra 20% fans for every race you complete with a white rating
