[top]Tips & Strategies

  • MCs that trigger cutscenes do not net you with any experience. Falk's MCs may be useful for tricky parts of the game, but try to limit the use of them if you are going to go for Level Maniac
  • Download the free Chain Attack mode DLC to help with Level Maniac and Chain Kill Master
  • If a level is proving to be too difficult, you can play on an easier difficulty by going to online match and setting it to private. Then change the difficulty to easy and nobody will be able to join you. (You could always set it to public if you want someone to randomly fall into your game, but exp will be shared.)
  • DLC character Silence DOES NOT count towards Level Maniac
  • In the later levels, use one of Niltor's MCs to help you take out turrets and lasers. If you don't do this, the game increases in difficulty by quite a bit.
  • Whenever you see "BSq"; I am referring to a Battle Sequence. Battle Sequences are the times where the pink walls are put up on either side of you, and you cannot progress until you have killed off all the enemies.


[top]Roadmap

1. Play through the entire game. Just play it on normal unless you are finding it too difficult. If so, refer to the tips section on instructions for how to change it to easy. You can also try to collect as many MCs as possible. This step will get you:
Act. 1 CLEAR
Act. 2 CLEAR
Act. 3 CLEAR

2. Replay any stages that you have missed areas for, and collect any remaining MCs you may have missed on your first playthrough. This step will get you:

Moon Traveller
MC Collector
Battle Master

3. Boost the multiplayer trophies either online, or locally. You will get the following trophies:

2P MC Drill
3P MC Practice
4P MC Training
Overprotective

4. Grind experience in stage 9 with your characters that are level 40+. Grind experience in Chain Kill Mode with characters that are lower than level 40. If you haven't got the trophy already, go for a 100 Kill chain. This will get you your last trophies:

Chain Kill Master
Level Maniac

...and a well deserved 100%!

Chain Kill Master
Achieve a Chain Kill of 100 or more.

The "Boss Fight" at the end of Stage 5 is particularly good for this trophy. The fight consists of wave after wave of mechanical hornets swarming you. My first time through this section netted me a 120 kill combo. Simply kill the enemies as fast as possible and leave no more than a few seconds between each kill. The area this fight is in is called Rudderless Voyage.

There are two other ways to unlock this trophy if the above method does not work for you;

1. At the end of stage 4, Area: Existence (prior to reaching the boss area) there is a battle sequence which spawns roughly 80 mechanical bees. Obviously this isn't enough to get a 100 kill chain, but if you don't kill the 30+ walkers from before the sequence, they will walk off their platform and straight into your battle. This is how I got my 100 kill chain, because I had issues with the fourth boss (which resulted in me having several runthroughs of the level).

or

2. If the Chain Attack mode is available to you (it is free DLC), simply choose the character Silence (who is the strongest at lower levels) and play through the entire chain attack mode. The prime time for your 100+ Chain Kill is when the 3 floating robot laser things spawn. At this point, continue attacking the laser robots while spamming Thor's Arc ++ (Silence's default MC). When you get to a 50 kill chain, your HP and MP will fill and you should be able to continue killing until you get well over 100.

I personally was able to get a 100+ kill chain with all 3 above methods. If they aren't working for you, just continue playing the game to level up your characters and get more comfortable with handling your character and perpetuating the kill chain.

[top]
Overprotective
Save your companions 10 times in a single game.

When an ally goes down in battle, there will be a small countdown above their head starting from 10. From this point, you have 10 seconds to get over to them and essentially attack them. By attacking them with , you are breaking away the chains that bind them. If you break the chains before the counter reaches 0, they will revive. Do this 10 times successfully in one game, and the trophy is yours.

The 10 revives must be done in the same stage, but you do not need to do all 10 in the same area.

[top]
Level Maniac
Raise the average level of all characters to level 50.

After you've played through the main story line you should have at least one character at roughly level 45. Now you just have to grind out the rest. Just as a side note: difficulty DOES affect the amount of experience you get. However, the difference is so small and you kill enemies much faster on normal than you do on insane so I would still suggest you grind on normal difficulty.

For the characters you have not yet leveled, I would suggest that you just grind out the levels on Chain Attack mode. You may want to play the first few stages to get some MC combos. Nive's Anger and Ceno's Relaxation/Ceno's Treatment will help you last to the end of Chain Attack mode, where you will get loads of experience. By the time you get to roughly level 40, Chain Attack mode will stop being as useful for leveling. Remember: The trophy description specifies an AVERAGE level of 50. This means that between the four characters (Seyfert, Tolby, Hitori, Ourion) you need a total of 200 levels. You could have one character at level 70, one at level 50, and two level 40s and still get the trophy.

If you are going to level a certain character past level 40, I suggest that you run quickly through the story with them until you get to Stage 9. The area in stage 9 called "Moon Drivers" has many fights with the boss you saw at the end of stage 4. Since you are fighting so many of them, and each battle nets you a nice amount of experience, this becomes the fastest method of leveling.

MC Collector
Collect 50 MC techniques.

There are a total of 60 MC techniques, so you do not need to collect every last one. If you are playing online, you must be the one who picks up the technique (yellow orb) in order for it to unlock for you. Whoever else is in the game WILL NOT receive the technique; only the person who physically ran into it. Note: All 50 Techniques must be unlocked with one character. For example, you cannot run through the first level and pick up the first 8 MCs on all characters in hopes of them contributing to the 50 for this trophy. I have compiled a list of techniques, and their location below:

2P MC Drill
Use 10 different 2P MC techniques.

There are 14 total unique MCs that you could potentially do for this trophy. You must have 2 players in the game. You must be the one to initiate the combo for it to count towards the trophy, simply enter a game with 4 unique 2P MC techniques, use each of them and either finish the level or die. This will save your progress (simply exiting the game will result in the combos not counting). Begin the next stage after equipping another 4 unique MC combos. Once the stage begins, execute the combos, rinse, repeat. One player initiates the combo by holding down and the other players must hold when the icon appears. Do this for 10 unique combos.

Battle Master
Defeat 10,000 enemies.

You will get this trophy naturally after finishing your playthrough and grinding out experience for Level Maniac. The 10 000 enemies must be killed with one character. Enemies killed in "Chain Attack Mode" DO count towards the total.
