Glitched Trophies: You will find millions of threads in this site and others regarding this problem, but let me explain. It was impossible to have the platinum in this game because the online was a big messy problem and had at least 2 glitched trophies. After the patch all trophies are now obtainable but they are still very picky and there some important details to know, but I will explain that when we cross paths with them.


[top]Road Map


1 Step) Go through the game the first time. Put the difficulty on Casual, so you can get along easily, get every possible trophy so you don't have the risk of having to do another playthrough.

Step 2) Go for the second playthrough. Put the difficulty on Professional, the game is a bit hard and the bosses may cause you some trouble. If you failed to get some of the trophies in the previous step now it's time to get them.

Trophies that you should have by the end of the second playthrough are:
(Gold)Are You A God?
(Bronze)The Destructor
(Bronze)I'm a Ghostbuster, Not a Doctor!
[/LEFT]

Any other trophy you missed the first time is listed above on the first step.

Step 3) Online Trophies. This is going to take you some time, my suggestion is, find someone you can boost with so these trophies get a lot easier and faster, if you don't want to boost, well good luck because it's going to take ages.

Trophies that you should have by the end of this step are:
(Bronze)Loans Paid Off
(Bronze)On the Payroll
(Bronze)Egon's Guinea Pig
(Bronze)Payday!
(Bronze)It's a Living
(Bronze)Wanted!
(Bronze)Employee of the Month
(Bronze)No Job Too Big
(Bronze)Gozer's Most Wanted
(Bronze)Overachiever


After all these steps are completed you should have your so much deserved Platinum. Congratulations!


[top]Tips and Strategies

Very Important
The online mode of Ghostbusters it's pretty much chaotic and full of small glitches, before the patch came along Payday and Overachiever were impossible to get, so you couldn't find anyone to play with. After the release of the patch both of the trophies are now obtainable, so the story of trophies glitched his over, however the game is still full of errors that will give you high pressure problems.
Before you start playing have this in mind, if you are going for the Payday only the host of the match get's the trophy, that's why it's almost required to have a boosting partner and that boosting partner is going to be very helpful when you do to Survival Jobs.
Overachiever may seem easy but you will find out that it's not. No Job To Big is NOT GLITCHED, some of the ghosts are really hard to appear so get a boosting partner that has that this trophy already because the ghosts will show themselves more often.
I strongly recommend going for this trophies before trying Gozer's Most Wanted, this will most likely to be your last trophy, also take not of all the jobs and maps you do from the start, it will spare you a lot of time when you go for this trophy as well, I will post here a Checklist for everybody.
When you complete a job or campaign you have to wait 5 minutes for the server to upload, if somebody quits during the game that will not count towards trophies, if you are dead by the end of game, that will not count as well, if you cross the streams and die that will not count.
So as you see the game is full with small details that can ruin your chances.

Boss Fight Strategy
The guy you are facing his Ivo Shandor and he is a mean guy.
The battle will have two faces:

1º- The first part of this apocalyptic duel is very easy, Shandor will be floating in the air inside a protection shield, he will throw flying skulls at you so be prepared. Around the room here are four huge black pillars with big green crystals inside, his is your first objective, destroy them with your Meson Collider, after all the crystals are destroyed a cut-scene will start and the second part of this duel will start.

2º- Now this is going to be hard, at the begging you will notice no difference, besides the fact that your are now in another dimension, but then Shandor will appear bigger and stronger then ever before. Shandor is now in very angry and things just got harder, he will float around the field throwing big rocks at you and making big firestorms. When damage him enough he will vanish and will appear again in the center of the room. Don't try damage him in this face because it's just wasting time, instead of that look around, you will notice that around the fill are still 4 walls standing, on the floor by these walls are 4 magic pillars that will regenerate Shandor's life (I know he is cheating), destroy these pillars before he has the change to recharge himself, after all 4 are destroy Shandor will go back to his routine by floating around throwing things at you, repeat this until he's life reaches zero.

3º- After that Shandor will transform himself into a larger form and impossible to defeat... Just kidding, after the cut-scene the game is over and the trophy is yours.

[top]
We Came, We Saw...
Complete the game on 'Casual' or 'Experienced' difficulty


The difference between them is not much, still I suggest going on Casual because it's easiest and you can get along just fine, you should get this one right after you get "Disaster of Biblical Proportions", after you finished the game.

[top]
Are You a God?
Complete the game on 'Professional' difficulty


Now this is harder, the game really gives a challenge in the bosses and the final one is really hard, but you should be fine.

[top]
Slam Dunk!
Slam dunk a ghost into a trap


The only difficulty to this trophy is the fact that you have to buy an upgrade which costs 18.000 points, it's a bit expensive but besides that there are no problems, find yourself a ghost weaken him until his life get's red, then grab and slam him into the trap with square and L2 buttons.

[top]
Slime Dunk!
Trap a ghost using the slime tether


Very easy, put a trap on the floor, aim for the trap and press R2 with the slime equipped, it will shoot a green tether then when you see a ghost just shoot him with the other side of the tether and he should go straight into the trap.

[top]
Stasis Dunk!
Trap a ghost using the Stasis Stream


Another basic and easy trophy, with your Stasis Stream equipped aim to a ghost and press the L2, it will start freezing the ghost and when it's totally frozen just aim the trap below the ghost and it should go directly into the trap.

[top]
I Ain't 'Fraid of No Ghost!
Trap a ghost


This will probably be your second trophy (the first one it's even easier), it his as easy as it could possibly be, really just trap your first ghost and this trophy is yours.

[top]
Aim for the Flat Top!
Eliminate a creature.


Another very easy trophy, just kill a creature like book warriors or small spiders, when you kill your first creature this trophy is yours.

[top]
Heat 'Em Up
Purchase all upgrades for the Proton Gun.


This trophy requires you to buy all available upgrades for the Proton Gun, they are expensive but you get points for capturing ghosts, killing creatures and for collecting artifacts, so you should have this trophy in no time.

[top]
Mother Pus Bucket!
Purchase all upgrades for the Slime Gun.


The same as Heat 'Em Up but with the Slime Gun, same strategy keep trapping ghosts, killing creatures and collecting artifacts.

[top]
We be Fast! They be Slow!
Purchase all upgrades for the Dark Matter Generator.


The same as Heat 'Em Up but with the Dark Matter Generator, same strategy keep trapping ghosts, killing creatures and collecting artifacts.[/SIZE]

[top]
I Don't Want My Face Burned Off
Purchase all upgrades for the Meson Collider.


The same as Heat 'Em Up but with the Meson Collider, same strategy keep trapping ghosts, killing creatures and collecting artifacts.[/SIZE]

[top]
We Have the Tools!
Purchase all available equipment upgrades.


You have to buy all upgrades for the Proton Gun, the Slime Gun, the Dark Matter Generator and Meson Collider. The upgrades for the trap count towards this as well.

[top]
The Destructor
Complete the game with more than $3.000.000 in property damage.


Almost anything you shoot, besides ghosts, costs money damage, you will get this without even notice. If you do want speed up things when you are in The Museum Of (Super)Natural History just destroy everything, and I mean everything, burn the place to the ground, keep destroying everything in your path and you should have this by the end of the game.

Tip: Do this on your second playthrough, because you will need to do much more damage.

[top]
Nice Shootin', Tex!
Complete the game with less than $100.000 in property damage.


This is tricky, everything you shoot costs damage and, be very careful when battling and capturing ghosts, both Times Square and the Museum levels will make a difference in this trophy be sure not to destroy many things on this levels and should be fine.

Hint: After the Museum Of (Super)Natural History level you won't be able to do any more damage so after that level just finish the game.
Hint: Your partners also have the ability of fighting and capturing ghosts so let them do job in the Museum level as much possible so you don't damage much stuff.
Tip: To this on your first playthrough because enemies are weaker and on the second playthrough you will have to fight a lot
.

[top]
...And You Want to Keep It?
Collect a Cursed Artifact.


The first artifact you will come across to is in the Hotel Sedgewick level, when your PKE meter get's blue start looking for the artifact with you PKE scanner, when you see it scan it and then the trophy is yours.

[top]
Spores, Molds and Fungus
Collect all Cursed Artifacts


Collect all artifacts in the game as you go trough it. If you happen to miss one just replay the level that your missing the artifact and go look for it, I will add a link with the locations.

[top]
I'm Picking Up a Signal...
Obtain a 100% PKE scan on a paranormal creature.


Another easy trophy, when you see a ghost take your PKE meter out and scan the ghost with the R2 button, do this until the ghost has been fully scanned.

[top]
Back Off Man, I'm a Scientist
Obtain 100% PKE scans for every creature.


Scan everything, all ghosts and creatures every time you see one. Do it a couple of times for each one and by the end of the game this should be yours. Also if you happen to miss anything, just replay the mission in question, it tells which ghost you are still missing.

Hint: The Bosses, slime and portals count towards this as well.

[top]
I'm a Ghostbuster, Not a Doctor
Revive your teammates 20 times.


You have three teammates, if you stay sharp anytime one of them goes down follow his locater to find him, when you find him press X and we will be ready for battle again.

Hint: Do this on your second playthrough because enemies are harder and stronger so your teammates will go down more times.

[top]
I Feel So Funky
Get slimed by a charging ghost.


Easy trophy, when you are facing Slimer for the first time just wait for him to charge against you, when you hit the ground get back up and the trophy is yours.

[top]
Total Protonic Reversal
Knock yourself down with your own weapon.


Egon's catch phrase is "DON'T CROSS THE STREAMS!!!" Well if you want this trophy you WILL have to do this. Shoot your stream against your partner's stream for a few seconds and then you will hit the floor, get back up and the trophy is yours.

Hint: If you can't get this trophy while crossing the streams, equip your Proton Gun, stand very close to a wall and press L2 (You need to buy this Upgrade).

[top]
You Gotta Try This Pole!
Slide down the fire pole.


This will probably be your first trophy, when you start the game in the Ghostbuster's Headquarters just go to the pole and slide down, it's easy and fun.

[top]
It's Slime Time
Use the Slime Tether on 15 ghosts.


The Slime Tether is that green string that connects your ghost to any game surface, they will slam a table, chair or a wall, just do this 15 times, if you use this from the beginning you will have this trophy in no time.

Kosher!
Remedy a dubious food choice to make the Bar Mitzvah as orthodox as it can be.

[top]
I Love You When You Rough-House!
The tidy architectural office could use some Proton-based humbling.


When you are in the Times Square level, go to to the architectural office, you will find that it is full of drawings and very tidy, destroy everything and the trophy is yours.

[top]
But the Kids Love Us!
The children's reading room has a story to tell, but it will take more than your eyes to see it.


In the Library level you will find yourself in a reading room, move to the corner next to the puppet show where you will see a teddy beer floating. After that exit and enter the room again, on your left there is a door that was locked. Now you can open it, but the door will only open halfway. You have to clear the desk that is blocking the door from opening, once you enter the room, pick up your PKE meter and go to the corner of the room where another teddy bear is waiting for you. The door will then close and you should have the trophy.

[top]
You Never Studied
Keep your ears open to learn everything you can about the Civil War.


When you are in the Museum level, the exhibit of the Civil War will have 4 speakers scattered across the room that will teach you about the Civil War, find them all and listen to them to earn this new trophy.

NOTE: Do this before the ghosts appear or the speakers will vanish.

[top]
I've Quit Better Jobs than This
Some ghosts had a real blowout in the Coat Room. Clean it up?


In Hotel Sedgewick, you will notice that at the beginning of the level there is door to the right which is locked. Go to kitchen do all your work there and then come back to this door. It's now open and full with black on the walls and ceiling, clean it up with your Green Slime and the trophy will unlock.

Ethereal Shield - Purple Bubble Shield that makes you invisible for a period of time.
Ammo Pickup - Standard weapons Green, Blue and Yellow.
Ghost Stunner - Blue Electric Power that stones all ghosts and kills the smallest enemies.

Collect and use all this and the trophy is yours.

[top]
Payday!
Be the overall top earner in each multiplayer campaign setting


NOTE: This is so important that I'm going to start with it, for some reason the Cemetery campaign is no longer required. Just do the other 3.

This trophy is easy if you have a boosting partner if not you are going to take a while to get this one, you just have to complete them don't need to win so you only need to for this:

Survival - Survive 1 wave of enemies.
Containment - Capture at least one ghost.
Thief - Keep at least 1 relic.
Protection - Put 2 PKE meters up.
Destruction - Destroy at least 1 relic.
Tips: While doing a survival if you want die just let the enemies kill you, don't cross the streams.
In containment trap as many ghosts as you want, just be alive at the end of job.
On thief keep on relic with you and stay alive.
On Protection don't trap the ghosts, make them weak and then just grab them. There is one ghost for each player. You don't have to trap any ghosts, just have to wait for the PKE meter to go up. On the second PKE meter same thing. On the last you are going to have a big guy, one of you should attract this guy away from the PKE meter and other watch out for any small enemies that try to damage the PKE meter.
In destruction, destroy the first 2 relics. On the third there should be ghost, which one grabs a ghost and wait for the time to run off.

Overachiever
Get over $2.500.000 in multiplayer, over 30 Post-Job Awards, 50 Jobs completed


You think this is easy, think again. When the game says $2.500.000 it's really from $5.000.000 to $8.000.000 I'm not joking, the problem with this trophy are the 50 Jobs, you will have to win 50 Jobs that's why this trophy is so hard, just keep playing and wining jobs. The 30 Post-Job Awards don't need to be different, you can have Light Show every time but still counts. You are only getting Glutton Slimer for the "No Job To Big" trophy after this, unless of course you have luck to get it from another player.

Here are the Job-Awards:
