[top]General Tips

  • All trophies are listed in XMB order. This will make it easier to navigate through the guide.
  • Whenever you see someone in the ModSpot asking to Download 4 Download, don't doubt and just do it. Every little bit of XP will help you in this game.
  • You can check out the official ModNation Racers Website ModNation to view your stats online.
  • Drifting - If you want to win any race, and it doesn't matter if you play offline vs the A.I. or online vs human opponents, if you don't drift you won't win! Drifting in Modnation Racers earns you boost, and stuntpoints, which earns you Race XP if play a XP race or series. The most important thing drifting earns you is boost, you can use it to shield your self from attacks, and use it to drive even faster.
  • Jump out - While you drive you kart you can drift if you hold , if you want to stop most people just let go of the button. This is so wrong, if you just let go you will have poor control of your kart. Now most people have gotten used to this but it is not how you should be drifting. I suggest when you drift and want to stop drifting you [b]tap]/b] the button, if done correctly you will jump out of your drift and have immediate, and full control of your kart. It does takes some practice to teach your self not to just let go, but it's worth it.
  • In-game jumps - I suggest you avoid them if you can, why you might ask? Well lets say your driving at maxing speed, if you use an in-game jump you will lose a lot of speed, thus it is not helping you out.
  • Boostpads - These things are really useful, though most people do not know how to use them right. If you use a boostpad, never use your own boost by pressing if you do, you will cancel the speed gained by the boostpad. In player created tracks, watch out for those boostpads that have there arrow pointing in a different direction then forward. Never use these pads, cause if lets say you use a boostpad that has an arrow pointing backwards, you will get shot backwards which will probably cost you the race.
  • Boosting - If you drift a lot you should have plenty of boost to use your races, though most people do not use there boost in the right way.What i mean by this is, a lot of you drivers waste a lot of boost. If you somehow crash, or get blasted of the road by a weapon don't use your boost to get up to speed, why you might ask? Well to be quite honest I used to do this al the time, until i noticed that you do speed up, but you also waste alot of boost. It's much more efficient to first drive a few seconds so you are driving at a normal speed, if you now use your boost you should be at maximum speed much faster while not wasting any boost.
  • Sideswipes - Do not underestimate this attack move you have, you do not need weapons to eliminate someone at first place while you are driving second. Sideswiping is very useful when the race has just started, if you drift in the first corner in the race you should have enough boost to sideswipe someone next to one you get back on a straight piece of road. Doing this not only earns you combat point, and thus XP, but it also earns you more boost.
  • Shortcuts - If you want to win races online you got to know the tracks very well, you should at least know where the shortcuts are placed. I suggest you just start every race in career and just drive around on it, not racing, but just to see where everything is. Since if you know where most of the shortcuts are, you can shave at least a second or two of your lap time.
  • Race Settings - When you are in the ModSpot or in a Race lobby you can change you Driver Style, you can adjust the handling, and the speed of your kart. To get aces to the race settings you just press , you should see a menu now, press two times on and you are now inside the race setting options. Here you will find the options to change your driving style, the first option lets you control how much you drift. When drift is +2 you can drift with ease, while if you have that setting on 2+ handling, its much harder to get kart to drift. The second option lets you control you engine power, if you put it on +2 acceleration, well then like the options says you accelerate much faster, how ever if you put it on +2 speed, your top speed of you kart goes up.


[top]Roadmap


  • #1 - Create:

When you start up Modnation Racers you will be inside a kart, and ready for you first race. If you play this race without using weapons and without using boost or a boostpad you will earn the following trophies: Slow and Steady, Pacifist Now once you cross the finish line you should go to the Creations Station. Inside the Creations Station, you can create your own mods, karts, and tracks, now go ahead create one of each. I suggest you also edit your three creations, and save them under a different name. If done correctly you should earn the following trophies: Mechanic, Sculptor, Dresser, Re-mixer. Try asking 10 different friends, to download you track, mod, and kart, if you succeed you'll earn the following trophies: Sharing Splines, Sharing Mods, Sharing Karts. If you decide to create a track that is a large circle, you could also earn the Drifting Superstar trophy.


  • #2 - Career:

The career mode has 28 different races, they are separated in 5 different series. The first two series are quite easy, but then the difficulty goes up, though its nothing to really worry about. You can unlock new races by finished at least at the third place, how ever to unlock a new series you need to win the last race of your current series. You will also earn a for finishing 1st on all of the career races, if you finish second or third, I suggest you restart. I suggest you also try to get the following trophies: Knockin' Boost, Shields Up!, Trigger Happy, Bruiser, Aggro Racer, Third Eye, The Drifter, Head Spinner, Fill'er up, Say Cheese.


  • #3 - Career Cleanup:

The career mode has so much challenges that you probably won't complete them on your first playthrough. Neither will you find and pick-up all of the tokens, but that isn't problem that is why we have a clean up round. Every challenge or token you missed you can now complete, I do suggest you take your time with the challenges, some of them like in the map Fracture can be really hard, and annoying. Once you have completed the challenges and got all of the tokens you will earn the following trophies: Level of Merit, Hoarder.


  • #4 - Online:

The online mode in Modnation Racers is a lot of fun, you can of course race your karts, but in the ModSpot you can also show off your newest creations, or just talk to other people. Now once you start with the online I suggest you only race in XP series, since you will earn the most xp in these races. The hardest online trophies are Star Creator, and Modnation Superstar, though both can be boosted. The other online trophies are quite easy, like get 100 online wins, or get inside the top 10% of HotLap on any given day. I suggest you take your time and enjoy the ride.


  • #5 - Boosting:

The Star Creator and Modnation Superstar trophies can be earned legit, but it will take a massive (300/500 hours) amount of time and a lot of luck. Now both those trophies can also be boosted, which will also take a lot of time, around the 20/30 hours of boosting. We recorded a video of how you boost your own creations in Modnation Racers, which you will find in the "Star Creator" trophy description.

[top]Trophies

[top]
ModNation™ Legend
Earn all the ModNation™ Racers trophies to unlock this platinum trophy
Trophy Difficulty:

You need to earn all the other trophies to unlock this platinum trophy. The ModNation Racers platinum trophy will be a bit time consuming and you probably need to boost it as well. The campaign is pretty short. It has 28 races, it is fun and there is a lot to do there though. You will have to collect Tokens (collectables), you will have 3 ingame challenges per race (which you will need to complete all 3), you will have to beat all the Elite Racers (you will unlock one when you have beaten all 3 challenges in a race) and you will need to beat all developers best lap times on all 28 races (which shouldn't be a problem). The hardest part will be some of the challenges, the time consuming part will be the 100 online wins and the 500.000 XP you need to earn. Overal I found this game really enjoyable and it will be a great platinum to have.

And here are some nice and helpful links:

Anonymous
Play an online race
Trophy Difficulty:

This is probably the easiest online trophy, you only need to race 1 online race, you don't even have to win it! To start an online race, drive to the "Race Station" in the Modspot and then to "Online". Press and the "Race Central Menu" will open. Here you will have 5 different options to choose: "Join XP Race", "Host Casual", "Join with Split Screen", "Host with Split Screen" and "Join Casual Race". Casual races mean you won't get any XP (unless you use your own mod/car/track). You can choose play any mode for this trophy to unlock.

[top]
Newcomer
Complete the qualifier race
Trophy Difficulty:

The qualifier race is the first race in ModNation Racers. Just after starting the game up for the first time after the short cutscene you will have to do a qualifier race before you can do anything else. The qualifier race is the simplist race, so don't worry about it. In this race you will learn the basics and you will most likely also get the Fill ‘er up trophy. I would recommend also going for the Pacifist trophy. For more information about these trophies, look further in the guide. In this race you will learn the basics of the ModNation Racers controllers: "How To... Control Your Kart", "How To... Use Weapons", "How To... Drift" and "How To... Boost".

Trophy Difficulty:

For this trophy you need to enter the shop, so press at the "Shop Station". You will have 2 different options there, the "Token Shop" and the "Online Store". The "Online Store" contains DLC for ModNation Racers, like New Items, New Mods and New Cars. The "Token Shop" is the place where you can spend the tokens you have found during the campaign. In the "Token Shop" there are Slots Machines where you can spend the tokens to get new stuff. There are 3 kind of Slots Machines, the 1 Token Slot Machine, the 2 Tokens Slot Machine and the 5 Tokens Slot Machine. The 5 Tokens Slot Machine gives you cooler stuff then the others of course. A thing to keep in mind is that if you have collected all the tokens in the campaign, you can get all the stuff from the Slot Machines, so it doesn't bother where to spend your tokens at.

Getting to know you

You will have 6 different options here, "Player Profile", "View Creations", "Invites/Messages", "Complaint Desk", "Add To Friends List" and "Challenge". The only thing you actually need to do, is challenge 5 random people for this trophy. The random player doesn't have to be on your PSN friendlist! Choose "Challenge" and you will have to set up a match (pick a track and the advanced options). Then you need to press "Challenge Player". The player doesn't have to accept the challenge! Repeat this 4 more times on unique people and the trophy unlocks.

[top]
Fill'er Up
Fill your boost meter
Trophy Difficulty:

You will most likely get this trophy in the first race of the game, the qualifier race. They only thing you need to do is get a full boost meter. There are a few ways to get your boost meter fill up:

  • The easiest thing to fill your boost meter is by drifting (Hold the button).
  • Another easy thing to fill your boost meter is by spinning in the air [2500 points per full spin] (use the right analogue stick to turn in the air).
  • A bit harder way to fill your boost meter is by drafting (drive really close behind another player).
  • An tactic but useful way to fill your boost meter is by using your weapons [2500 points per hit] (whenever you picked up a weapon, press to shoot it towards someone or hold to drop down a grenade ).
  • The last way to fill your boost meter is by sideswiping people, but this also decreases your boost meter [2500 points per hit] (when you have your boost meter filled up enough, you can sideswipe someone off the road by pulling the right analogue stick to the right or the left).

To get a full boost meter, do the things above and don't press to boost. If you have a full boost meter, the trophy will unlock and this will probably be in your first race.

[top]
Third Eye
Hit 20 opponents with weapons dropped as secondary weapons
Trophy Difficulty:

You can use the secondary weapons by holding when you have a weapon equipped. The secondary weapon is a grenade. You will drop the grenade behind you and if another player comes to close to the grenade, it will explode. You need to hit 20 opponents with the secondary weapons. This trophy will probably come naturally while playing through the campaign. The secondary weapons are very useful if you are in first place. Also if you don't like the weapon you picked up, you can use it as a secondary weapon and you can pick up a new weapon.

[top]
Shields Up!
Successfully defend yourself with your shield 20 times
Trophy Difficulty:

To use your shield, you need to hold the button, but you will also need your boost meter filled (atleast halfway for an effective defense). When someone shoots a weapon on you, you will an annoying sound (you can't miss it), which will get louder when it's near you. Only use your shield at the last moment too save some boost and to be sure you have enough boost for the shield so the weapon won't hit you. Also you can use the minimap too see some weapons approach you. Get 20 succesful defences with the shield and the trophy will be yours. This trophy will probably come naturally while going through the campaign.

[top]
Knockin’ boost
Drive over a hundred boost pads
Trophy Difficulty:

You need to drive over a hundred boost pads. This trophy will come naturally while racing through campaign, since you will be forced to use them a lot so you will win the races. Also if you are in a hurry to get a fast bronze trophy (this trophy), create a small track with a lot of boost pads on it and just race a few laps on it and the trophy will unlock very fast.

You have a very large jump at the begin of the race where you can easily turn 4 circles (1440°). You can see the the large jump on the video below.

Offering Opinions
Rate 10 tracks, 10 mods and 10 karts

This trophy requires you to rate 10 tracks, 10 mods, and 10 karts. This is a very easy trophy, since there are millions of creations online. You can rate creations inside the Share Station, or when you view someones creations. When you selected a creation, press to rate it, it doesn't matter how much
stars you rate something. Repeat this 10 times, for the tracks, mods, and karts and your trophy will unlock.

Pioneer Racer
Be part of the first race on a published track
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to be part of the first race on a published track. This is also a very easy trophy to earn, since there are hundreds of new tracks published everyday. To earn this trophy you can ask a friend to create a simple track, and publish it online. Once the track is published ask your friend to create a casual race, join him and play on that new track. Another way to get this trophy is that you publish a track yourself and then challenge some people in the ModSpot (or ask a friend to help you) untill someone accepts the challenge and race on your new track. You can also unpublish and republish a track you made before! When you finish the race, the trophy will unlock.

[top]
Drifing Superstar
Earn 100,000 drift points in one drift
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to earn 100.000 drift points in one drift, this trophy cannot be earned in any of the career tracks, believe me I have tried. Though it is quite easy to earn it, just create your own circular track, or go to the Share Station and search for a 100k drift map. Once you created the track or downloaded it go to race settings and put number of laps on nine, this is just to make sure you won't finish before getting 100.000 points. Now start the race and start drifting, press and hold to drift.

[top]
The Drifter
Drift 1,000 times in total
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to drift a 1.000 times in total, this trophy should be earned without even thinking about it. You will earn this trophy while you play through the career mode, because if you want to win any races you have to drift. Drifting is done by pressing and holding it. When you want to exit a drift you can release but, you can also tap so you have more control over your kart's movement.

[top]
Slow and Steady
Win an action race without using any boosts or a boost pad

Series Winner
Win a ranked race series
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to win a XP series, this can be quite difficult when there are people with a lot of skill in the same room as you. Though if you keep playing you should be able to win a series without many problems, just do not forget to drift so you can shield attacks. I also suggest you practice some of the tracks in quick-race or just in XP series them self. When you drift a lot, your boost meter will be almost always full, use your boost, since adding to a full boost meter doesn't do anything. I do how ever suggest you always keep 50% of your boost to shield any incoming attacks.

Elite Hunter
Beat all the elite racers in the grudge matches
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to beat all the grudge matches, those are the matches against those special campaign characters. Most of the Grudge races are pretty easy. There are three types of Grudge matches you can play. There are Point races where you have to beat the Grudge leader by drifting, having more airtime, or having more points overall. There are normal 1v1 grudge matches, where you race the Grudge leader. The third kind is where you race vs the Grudge leader, and his crew. If your having problems with any of those grudge matches I suggest you practice the track in question in quick-race or drift more so you have more shield to use.

Flaming Hot!
Get in the top 10% in HotLap Mode on any given day
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to get into the top 10% of HotLap Mode. To earn this trophy you have to race a track flawless, you cannot make any mistakes, you have to drift, and boost a lot. I suggest you just take a look what map is currently playing in HotLap, and then practice that map for a hour or two in quick-race. You can also just wait until HotLap is playing a map you know very well, but that might take a while, since they now also play player created tracks. While practicing in SP also take a look at the ghosts driving right next to you, if they do something different in a corner, and there faster, copy them. I also suggest you drift in every possible corner so you earn boost, use this boost to drive faster all the time. Really all I can say for this trophy is practice, practice, practice.

How to tell if you are in the top 10% of the day?
#1 - Go to Hot Lap Race Leaderbords.
#2 - If you know what time you had in the Hot Lap Race, go look for your rank in the leaderbords by changing the Link Above. You need to change the page=1 in the link above to another number for example 10, or 12, or 5.
#3 - If you know what rank you are, you know need to find out how many people are participating in the Hot Lap of Today. Go search for the last page on the leaderbords by changing the link above again to another number for example 60, or 77, or 43.
#4 - If for example 650 people are participating, you need to be atleast at rank 65 of that day at the end of the day!

Beat all 28 developer best lap times in career
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to beat all 28 developer best lap times. Now this trophy can be very difficult, because you need to memorize every little detail of every track, which will take you a while. Though I found a very easy way to beat these developer times. When the race starts just stand still at the finish line, wait there for 25 seconds. After the short waiting time, start to drive towards the finish, do not forget to pickup the power-ups. Because you are so far behind you will get a level 3 warp if you pickup three power ups. Now once you get past the finish line, thus starting lap 2/3 drive as good as you can, use all your boost, and do not forget to use your level 3 warp. If your lucky enough you get a second level 3 warp while racing the second lap if you do use it to get an even better time. If you do it like I just described above you will beat every best lap time without any trouble. We didn't find a list with the developer best lap times, but we can tell you how you can recognize that you bested the developers lap time. If your lap time looks like this (watch the last three digits in bold) 1:23:000, then you didn't beat it. If you did how ever the time will look like this, 1:23:465.

Level of Merit
Complete all the career challenges
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to complete all the challenges in the career mode. Its really not hard to complete the challenges, but you also have to finish first. I suggest you drift as much as possible so you always have a full boost bar to shield or just boost. Also try to always pick-up power-ups and drop them behind you if your in the lead. You also do not have to complete all three challenges at once on a track, you can complete them one by one. Just do not restart the map once you completed a challenge, always press continue. If you restart the map when you completed a challenge the game won't save it, thus you wasted your time trying. If you are having trouble with any of the challenges take a look at the video's we listed in the Career Challenges Videos Section, we didn't recorded those videos, credit for them goes to: FrankNstein.

Hoarder
Collect all tokens in the single player career
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to collect all the token in the career mode, this is one of the easiest trophies in the game. In most games the collectibles are very well hidden, well not in Modnation Racers. If you drive around the tracks you should see all of the tokens laying around the track. You can pickup the Tokens by simply driving through them, most tokens will be found on jumps, shortcuts, or in large/wide corners. You do not have to finish first to keep the tokens, you just need to finish. If you are having trouble finding the tokens, please take a look at these videos in the Token Locations Section.

Taking On The World
Win 100 Online Races
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to win 100 online races. It doesn't matter what kind of race, both casual or XP races count. If you like this game, and play a lot of online races, this trophy should be earned without even thinking about it. If your having trouble winning online, try memorizing a couple of tracks in quick-race. Its also possible to boost this trophy with a friend, just create a 10 second circular track and trade wins on it.

Come 1st in every race in career
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to be first in every race in Career mode, this trophy is not so difficult. You need to memorize the tracks a little bit, and drift a lot if you want to win, since if you don't drift you wont be able to shield your self from the weapons the AI will be shooting near the end of the race. I also suggest you always pick up every power-up you can and throw them behind you once you have a level 3, this will keep the AI behind you. Though in the last round keep that level 3 weapon with you in case you make a mistake and the AI takes first place. UFG also released a patch which makes the Career mode much easier, so if your having problems with any of the races just drop the difficulty level.

Star Creator
Earn at least 250.000 Create XP
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to earn 250.000 create XP. This trophy is probably the hardest of them all since you depend on other people to download your creations. This is how you earn create XP:

  • Downloads - 100 XP
  • Races started - 40 XP
  • Voting - 40 XP
  • Comments - 20 XP
  • Views - 20 XP


You do not earn a lot of XP while you play the game how it is meant to be played. If you are a good track creator I suggest you make a decent track, and play test it with some friends. Once you know the map is glitch free, go to the official ModNation-Racers forum, and submit your map for the HotLap mode. If your map gets chosen you will earn this trophy in one day. Though there is a second option to earn create XP, this is for the people who aren’t such great creators.

The second option is boosting your own creations, this is how you do that. First you need to Create a couple of mods. Publish your creations online > Delete them from your hard drive > Unpublish your creations, you will then receive a message asking if you want to Save a copy of that creation, answer yes. You answer yes because you want to have a copy of your creations so you can repeat the process without having to create new mods again. Now if you published 10 creations, and unpublished those again in the way I described above you should have earned 1000 XP. Repeat this process with all 60 create slots filled and you earn 6.000 XP. Watch the video below to see how I did all of this.

Toggle Spoiler

This video shows boosting with only one account, your main account.
If you have multiple account, this is what you do:
Create a lot of mods (60) > Publish them online > Exit to XMB > Delete the map User Created Data from the Game Data folder > Log-in into your alternate account > Start Modnation Racers > Search for you main account and download your 60 mods (if you have more then two accounts, then repeat from (the first) "Exit to XMB" again) > Exit to XMB > Log-in into your main account > Unpublish your 60 mods, when you are asked if you want to save a copy of your current creation, answer yes > Repeat from step Publish.

ModNation™ Superstar
Achieve level rank 30
Trophy Difficulty:

This trophy requires you to achieve rank 30, now this will take you a while since you need 500.000 XP in total. The good news how ever is both Create, and Race XP count towards this trophy. You can earn this legit but it will take you a very long time of racing, or you have to be lucky and create something that other people really like. The fastest way to earn this trophy is by boosting your own creations, how to do this I described above in the Star Creator trophy.
