Step into the feet of Bear Grylls in the Man vs. Wild game made by Crave Entertainment, taking place on the popular TV Show. You get to do all that Bear has done, fight animals, find bugs, parachute and even make a raft. The game will take you to the Rocky Mountains, the Everglades, the Sahara Desert, a Desert Island and Patagonia. Will you have what it takes to take control of Bear and do what it takes to survive? Can you handle the challenge of Man vs. wild and come out victorious? Can you make it out alive? Only you can decide.

[top]Tips & Strategies

This game is very easy and shouldn't be hard at all. Jest keep an eye out for animals, plants, collectibles etc. Try and fight every animal you come cross, set every trap and go through every yellow light. This game is a fairly easy, and semi-fun platinum.

In the guide I will give a written location of all collectibles in each mission and it will start at the exact point of where the video starts. In the trophy for each mission I will include a video walkthrough that includes all the collectible locations. Thank you to duck360 for letting me use his videos.

When you go to sleep, your health, hydration and energy will go back to full.

At this time, if you miss a collectible during a mission, when you go back to it your stats will have reset, so if you had 8/9 collectibles and only needed the 1 you missed you will have to start over and refind them all.

Also, if the Born Survivor trophy does not show up after meeting all requirements, all you can do is delete your save data and start over. You also have to press CONTINUE for the not passing out in that level to count.


1. Play through each mission normally, trying to obtain any mission based trophies along the way.

2. Immediately after you beat a mission, if you missed a collectible replay the level and refind everything is the category you were working on. Don't worry about anything else. Focusing only on what you need will help you complete the mission a lot quicker.

3. After you beat the game and have every collectible trophy, start playing through the game again to reach the rank of Bear Grylls and trying not to pass out.

This will be earned after all trophies to achieve. Very easy platinum ...... unless Born Survivor prevents you.

Reminders of the Rush
Locate all of the Gold Rush trash in the Rockies.

Shovel: If you land in the tree, you will cross a log and have to climb up. Once you are at the top their will be a rock wall in the middle. On the right is the first time you will have to "hug the wall" to cross to the next area. It will be on the left next to a tree.
If you landed on the ground, the only thing different is that you wouldn't have had to cross the log and climb the wall to get there.

Bucket: After your first "wall hug", once you get on the other side there will be a ledge right to your right. Follow it about 15 feet and there will be the bucket.

Barrel: At he first campsite you will see a beehive on the right wall. Follow the wall down and you will come across the barrel.

Dynamite: After the first bear encounter, you will have to cross what I call "rock pillars." The dynamite will be on the last pillar before you jump to the other side. There is no way you will miss this piece of trash.

Boat 1: Right when you start out, swim along the right side until you can make a right. The boat will be at the end. This boat can be glitchy, one time it was where I have it here, another time it was opposite the log you have to crawl up and another time it never appeared.

Take the one one the left. Once you get to the bottom and you see the log you have to cross, look to the left and they will be next to a tree.

Hard to Pronounce, Hard to Find
Find all five Andiperla Willinki bugs in Patagonia.

These are the hardest collectibles in the game. You can't (or at least I couldn't) see them. None of the bugs are out of the way, but even with written directions they can be VARY easy to miss. I will leave it to the collectible video I included for the trophy How about a Winter's Tale.

Wild, Man!
Complete the "Base Camp" campaign.

Base Camp is the tutorial level of the game. It takes you through fishing, fighting snakes, using ropes etc. This is a very easy mission and should only take you 10 minutes max. Also, no collectibles here but LOADS of easy SP points towards the Bear Grylls trophy.

Rocky Mountain High
Complete the "Rocky Mountains" campaign.

This is the 1st actual level of the game. It will take approx. 20 minutes if you are doing collectibles and can be done in 15 minutes if you are going soley for Born Survivor. In this level you will face a bear 3 times and possibly a mountain lion 2 times. This level is very easy and remember, while dodging the bear wait, don't do the 2nd and 3rd button combos as soon as they appear, wait until Bear has fully landed from the dodge.

Down in the Low Low Land
Complete the "Everglades" campaign.

There are up to around 5 alligator fights here, 1 or 2 of which are avoidable. It will take you 25 minutes while going for collectibles and around 15 if you are going soley for Born Survivor.

As I Scan This Wasted Land
Complete the "Sahara" campaign.

This is another easy level. It will take you around 15 minutes while doing collectibles, and 10-12 minutes while going solely for Born Survivor. Make sure you have water at all times since this is the desert and you will dehydrate quickly.

Only Hope Can Keep Me Together
Complete the "Deserted Island" campaign.

In this mission just watch out for sharks in the beginning. And in the Steam Caves, wait for the steam to stop before you run through. Also, be mindful of the hogs after you exit the cave. At the end, sharks may or may not attack your raft and if they do, just keep pressing until you knock them off. It will take 18 minutes while going for collectibles and approximately 12 minutes going solely for Born Survivor.

A Winter's Tale
Complete the "Patagonia" campaign.

Patagonia is a very easy level ....... except for the end. After you capture the horse and get to the train, you will be prompted to hold on the spot where the red light turns green. Once Bear starts getting up to balance (also you MUST hold in the same spot the whole time), push the left analog stick ( ) slightly to the left to keep your balance until Bear is fully standing up. To keep the balance, make sure the camera looks straight. Now when you are prompted to press to hop on the train (while still keeping Bear balanced with and holding ) wait about 5 seconds before you press . If you press immediately when you are prompted, Bear will fall off the horse. It will take you about 15 minutes to complete while doing collectibles, and as little as 10 minutes while going for Born Survivor.

Bear Grylls
Reach the Level "Bear Grylls."

This trophy takes 8,000 points and may seem like a long trophy, but it is a very easy and short trophy. Just do anything available (fighting animals, making traps etc). This should come after around 2 playthroughs, while going for Born Survivor or after you beat the game, just keep replaying Mission 2 because of the amount of animals. Good luck!!!

Born Survivor
Complete all episodes without passing out.


The trophy description may seem a little confusing. You don't actually pass out, you die. But in terms of the game, passing out comes when you are killed by an animal or the elements (cold, heat etc) kill you. It is ok to crash your vehicle or man made transport. The way you will know if you passed out is if you get a message that says "Bear is incapacitated" and it prompts you to continue or exit. At that point you will have to exit and start over. If your playing, and if you crash or fall off something and the screen goes black for a couple seconds and brings you back you are fine, that is not considered passing out. Also, for the bear fights, if you mess up and press the wrong buttons or don't do it quick enough, press start as soon as you see the red x's. It is ok to restart from a checkpoint.

Base Camp: This is the tutorial level. If you pass out/die during this level don't even bother playing the game

Rocky Mountains: Just watch out for the bear and mountain lion attacks and you will be fine.

Everglades: Crocodiles are your biggest threat here. In water segments just swim around them and if on land try to pass them.

Sahara Desert: The only thing that can kill you here is the heat. Make sure you have water, get it whenever you can, and use your snake skin to your advantage, that's right I mean drinking your own piss!!!!!

Desert Island: You will only have to worry about sharks in the beginning and towards the end. Very easy to pass. The steam caves are your biggest threat. They are the environmental element that can kill you here. Also, keep an eye out for wild hogs.

Patagonia: The cold is the only major killer in this level. Just get to where you need to in time.
