[top]Tips & Strategies

  • all trophies are in XMB order
  • There is no chapter select and no NG+ in this game, so you have to find all the collectables in one playthrough
  • You can buy Red Gems to upgrade your stats and weapons at Christopher's shop, one will be 45 White Gems on easy difficulty, 75 on normal and 120 on hard
  • You can farm both Red and White Gems, see the Cheats, Glitches and Exploits section below for details
  • Shoot all crates and barrels you come across, you can find plenty of ammo and booze in the game, no need to waste too much money on it; you will need your White Gems to buy Red Gems, especially on hard
  • Your last opportunity to buy stuff from Christopher will be at the end of 5-2


[top]Cheats, Glitches, & Exploits

Red Gem Farming

Red Gems are your upgrade material in SotD. You need 80 red gems to upgrade everything to maximum; 38 gems can be found throughout the game, the remaining 42 (or more, in case you missed some) can be bought at Christopher's shop. There is a way to farm Red Gems at the beginning of the game. It goes without saying that upgrading your stuff this early will take out most of the challenge, so do this at your own risk of getting bored by too easy gameplay. If you are going for High in Las Vegas, however, I would recommend to farm at least 5 - 10 Red Gems using this method just to be save. For one thing, some of the Red Gems in the game can be easily missed. There is no chapter select or NG+ in SotD, so missing one single Red Gem means you screwed up for this playthrough. For another thing you really need A LOT White Gems (=currency in SotD) to buy those 42 Red Gems from Christopher. One single Red Gem will cost you 45 White Gems on easy, 75 on normal and juicy 120 on hard, which makes it almost impossible to buy them all on hard without some White Gem farming (see below).

Here is a video by omegaevolution showing you how to farm Red Gems in 2-1:

NOTE: All the Red Gems you get using this method will count towards High in Las Vegas. However, you may not be able to farm all the 80 Red Gems you need. After 30-40 Gems the exploit ceases to work for many people. You won't be able to get back to the area with the dark hand again. Move on and get the remaining Gems legit

White Gem Farming

White Gems are the currency in Shadow of the Damned. You can find White Gems throughout the game; mostly you'll get them for killing demons. There are several locations in the game where demons will spawn infinitely so you can farm White Gems until you reach the cap of 999.

The first of these locations can be found in Act 2-3. The three headed demon on the graveyard will keep puking demons until you kill it, so just stay out of the darkness and keep killing those demons until your purse is full. You will get more Gems for brutal kills (stun them with your light shot, then run up to them and press ) or for stomping crawling demons.

Another nice White Gem farming spot can be found in Act 3-2. In the lake where you find Red Gem #15 there will a group of three demons which will keep respawning over and over again. Thanks to dbunten for pointing this location out to me.

Finally, in Act 4-3 you can stomp an armoured demon for infinite White Gems. Have a look at the video by smokevf hidden in the spoiler box below to see how this is done.

[top]Roadmap

Here is what I consider to be the best and most enjoyable way to Fleming's Pride:

First Playthrough: Demon Hunter
SotD is a brilliant game with a lot of variety in its gameplay and with hilarious dialogues between Garcia and Johnson. As you will have to beat the game three times to obtain the platinum trophy anyway, you might as well enjoy your first run as much as possible. Easy difficulty is REALLY easy in this game, therefore I would recommend playing on normal so it won't get boring. Just enjoy the game and don't bother too much about those Red Gems. Try to find as many as possible, but don't spoil your gaming experience with a guide for all the collectibles unless you want to be a nerd. Use all the weapons you have got to find out their strengths and weaknesses. This might also get you the one or other weapon related trophy. At the end of this playthrough you will gotten have all the story related trophies, Demon Hunter for beating the game on normal and some of the weapon/kill related trophies.

Second Playthrough: Lemon Hunter
This is your collectibles run. Of course it would be better to get all the Red Gems (=upgrade stones) in your playthrough on hard. However, it's not easy to obtain all 80 Red Gems on Legion Hunter as you have to buy 42 of them at Christopher's shop. While one Red Gem only costs 45 White Gems on easy and 74 White Gems on normal, you will have to pay 120 White Gems for one single Red Gem on hard. It's almost impossible to buy 42 Red Gems on hard without some serious White Gem farming, so you will have a much easier time to get High in Las Vegas on easy. Got my point?
You should also go for all weapon and kill related trophies you might have left on this playthrough. After beating the game on Lemon Hunter you should have gotten Blood on the Dance Floor, The Talkative One, Meatballs Lover, That's so Hot!, The Orthodontist, Now That's a Big Fuckin' Gun, A Hole in your Head, Orthodontic Pleasures, Skullblaster Master, Nasty Headache, The Puppeteer, Fire in the Hole!, Fiesta Caliente! and Trash'em while they're out!

Third Playthrough: Legion Hunter
You should only have Legion Hunter and maybe some minor trophies like Stingy Bastard or Drunk in Public left now. Just beat the game on hard and clean up any trophies you might have missed. Legion Hunter isn't too hard; if you want to get done with it quickly though I would highly recommend some Red Gem farming in 2-1 even if you've already got High in Las Vegas. At then end of this playthrough you will get Legion Hunter and :plat: Fleming's Pride. Congratz, gringo!

Adios George (Human Form)
Defeat George Human Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
This is the first boss of the game, you'll encounter him in act 2 chapter 2. The fight is pretty easy if you know what to do. George wears an impenetrable armour, so you have to take care of this first. Look out for those light barrels standing around everywhere; you have to shoot them when Georgie is near them. This will knock him down and buy you some seconds to shoot his head, which is vulnerable now. Once he gets back up find the next barrel and repeat. There is ample supply of ammunition and drinks in the area, so stock up with it if you need it.

After you did a set amount of damage, George will rip off the nearest Goat lamp and run off with it. You have to find the Goat lamp and light it up again with your light shot ( and ). There are two things which will help you to find the lamp quickly: You can see a red glow around the area where the goat lamp is. Just look up a bit and you will be able to see it even from a distance. Moreover, you will be able to hear the goat bleat when you get near it.

After you lit the lamp back up, George will switch back to his first strategy. Stun him with light barrels and head shot him again until he goes for the Goat lamp again. Sigh. Find the lamp, light it up, then go for light barrel round three. Finish him off and the trophy will ding.

[top]
Adios George (Beast Form)
Defeat George Beast Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
This fight is a bit a bit time consuming yet pretty straightforward if you know what you have to do. You can break down the battle into three stages.

Stage one:
You will face George on horseback. He is invincible at the moment, so don't waste your ammo. However, after some seconds into the fight you will hear him fart. Obviously demon's fart darkness, which is good, because from inside the darkness you can see his weak spot. Shoot the blood lump on his back until his horse collapses. The quickly run over to the horse and shoot its belly. After this, horse and rider will jump back onto the column they came from and attack you from there. Keep attacking the belly of the horse while evading its attacks with . Rinse and repeat until the horse is dead.

Stage two:
Meet George the giant. 'Simply' shoot all the blood lumps and don't get hit. Whenever a blood lump bursts, he will get down to one knee and be stunned for a couple of seconds. Immediately go for another blood lump when this happens, preferably one which is hard to hit while George is moving. You can nutmeg him to attack the lumps on his back. Be careful not to get hit though, dodge roll with to avoid his attacks.

Stage three:
After the last lump George will take a leak of darkness. Following this little cut scene you will notice that his bowels are hanging out. Put him out of his misery by shooting them. Evade those worms coming out of the ground and keep firing until he is finally dead.

[top]
Don't Fear the Reaper I
Defeat Maras Grim (Sister Grim) Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
A rather easy boss fight. After she casts darkness you will notice that Maras takes on an orange glow. Aim at her and perform a light shot ( + ) to stun her and to expose her weak spot on her chest. Fire everything you have on this weak spot. Once she starts moving again, evade her attacks with until she casts darkness again. Repeat above steps until she dies.

[top]
Don't Fear the Reaper II
Defeat Kauline Grim (Sister Grim) Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
This fight is basically the same as in Don't Fear the Reaper I above. There is one tiny difference though: Everytime she casts darkness, Kauline will summon lookalikes to make it harder for you to stun the real one with your light shot. There will only be two lookalikes the first time, but they will multiply with every round. Don't fire at them randomly but have a good look at the ladies. The real McCoy has a slightly more reddish glow to her chest in comparison to the others. Light-shot this one and then attack her weak spot with everything you have. Rinse and repeat until she is dead.

[top]
Annoying Mosquito
Defeat Elliot Beast Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
Elliot is a pretty easy and straightforward boss. If you should have any issues with him, just follow the strategy below.

Round 1:
Just keep shooting at its red core as often as you can get a clear shot. You can evade all of Elliot's attack using the left stick and . Use your light shot ( and ) if he cloaks the bridge in darkness. After some time the core on his chest will finally break.

Round 2:
You have to aim for Elliot's wings in this round. Take good care not to get hit by the boulders he throws at you. Evade with the left stick and . If you should get hit spam to get up again.

Round 3:
Use your Light Shot to expose the last red core and keep firing at it. Evade Elliot's attacks as usual. He should be history in no time.

[top]
Don't Fear the Reaper III
Defeat Giltine Grim (Sister Grim) Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
Giltine is the oldest of the three Grim sisters. While this fight might be a little harder than the other two, it's still very doable. You should have found tons of booze just before the fight, there are crates with ammo standing around and there is even a vending machine in the corner.

Strategy:
At the beginning of the battle you will notice that Giltine is kinda red in the face. Shoot her in the face and keep evading everything she throws at you with . After some time, she will engulf the area in darkness. Just as with her sisters, this will reveal the weak spot on her belly. Ignore the normal demons for now and shoot everything you have at her weak spot. After some time it will shatter, which will also bring back the light. Now take care of the normal demons. Kill them as quickly as possible and keep evading while doing so, as Giltine will still be throwing her scythes at you.

Round two and three are identical to the first round, with the little difference that her weak spot will be able to take more damage with each round. Playing on normal or hard, you will need booze to keep you alive. Keep evading the normal demons, fire at Giltine's belly, and be sure to knock back a bottle whenever you see the edges of the screen turn red. You should have more than enough booze to get through this fight. However, if you should run out of the good stuff, shoot the goat lamp and visit the vending machine sitting in the corner.
After the third round Giltine will be history and the trophy will pop.

[top]
Flat Lust
Defeat Justine Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
You gotta love this game for all the awesome game design ideas. Justine is the end boss in the third side scroller level in Act 4. This boss fight made me want to play R-Type again.

Round 1:
You will have to shoot at the three red cores on her mask while she is attacking you with huge drops of acid rain. Evade those green drops of shoot them so you won't get hit.

Round 2:
After you've finally destroyed Justine's mask your are in for a surprise: She wears another mask underneath. This second mask is only vulnerable to light shots. Keep shooting them at her with until this mask breaks, too.

Round 3:
Finally you can blast your hot boner all over Justine's Face! From time to time she will grab you, but there is nothing you can do about this. Just keep shooting until she throws you away again. She will go down eventually and the trophy will pop.

[top]
I Defeated the Last Big Boss!
Defeat Fleming Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.
Fleming is a piece of cake at the beginning of the fight, but he will become a pain in the later stages of the boss battle. Have a look at the strategy below if he should give you too much trouble.

Round 1:
You might have noticed that Fleming has a rather huge head. Shoot at it. He doesn't move too much, so you might as well use the Skullblaster for some serious damage. You can easily evade all of his attacks with . From time to time Fleming will open his trenchcoat, revealing Paula. DO NOT shoot her or the game is over. If you are using The Dentist it will lock on to Paula rather than Fleming's head, so take care not to kill her accidentally. If he shrouds the arena in darkness, light shoot ( + ) the swinging goat lamp.
After some hits to his head, Fleming will be dazed for a moment. You will notice some glowing cracks on his chest. Select your Hot Boner with and fire a mine at Fleming's chest ( + press and hold ) and blow it up by shooting it. Fleming will fall to pieces... to three pieces to be exact. Those three pieces will be floating in a circle now, connected by electricity. Only one of Fleming's parts is vulnerable though. Time to use The Dentist. Press and hold and wait until the red circle indicates that your weapon has locked on to the target, then fire away with . After some shots, Fleming will pull himself together again.

Round 2:
The second round is exactly like the first one, so just repeat the strategy above. The only difference is that Fleming takes a lot more damage before he is finally stunned, but as he is really harmless at this stage of the fight you shouldn't have any issues.

Round 3:
Now this battle is beginning to pick up a little. At the beginning of this round, Fleming will hide inside a bulletproof green cover. Fortunately he needs some air holes though. Select your Skullblaster with , make sure it is fully loaded by pressing , then charge it (press and hold and ). When it is fully charged, try to aim right through one of the holes with your arc. If you succeed, you will have an instant opportunity to stun him again. If you don't he will blow up his green cage after a while and you will have to fight him the 'normal' way again.

The fight will become harder and harder towards the end. Fleming will use new attacks from round three on. He will attack you with a red energy beam which will follow you for a couple of seconds. Keep dodge rolling to one direction to avoid it. From time to time Fleming will also try to grab you with a dark hand coming from inside his cloak. You will end up in an area filled with darkness if it gets hold of you. Shoot the doors in the back with your Hot Boner to find the exit.

Try to stun him again as fast as possible, blow him to pieces with your Hot Boner and keep attacking his floating body parts until he is finally history.

[top]
Love Suicide
Defeat Paula Boss

This trophy is story related and can't be missed.

The Dentist is you best friend in this fight. Paula is moving pretty fast, which makes it hard to aim at her wings with any other weapon. Equip the Dentist and press and hold until the red circle indicates that the weapon locked on to the target. Now keep firing at her. Dodge her attacks with , you don't need to release to do that. Try to ignore the normal demon's she throws at you if you can, killing them doesn't really help as Paula will come up with new ones at once.

In the second phase of the fight, you will have to fight Paula in a hellishly long corridor. Darkness is surrounding you so you have to keep moving. Again, the dentist will be your weapon of choice. Keep shooting at Paula's wings while evading her attacks.

The Talkative One
Defeat 20 enemies with the TEETHER

This trophy is missable!
The Teether is your assault rifle in this game. It's the second weapon you will obtain. Killing 20 enemies shouldn't pose a problem. However, you have to get this done before the end of act 3-3 as your weapon will automatically be upgraded to The Teethgrinder in this chapter.

[top]
Meatballs Lover

[top]
That's So Hot!
Defeat 20 enemies with the HOTBONER

This trophy is missable!
You will unlock the Hot Boner at the end of Act 3-1. Simply kill 20 enemies with it and this trophy will unlock. NOTE: You don't have to charge the weapon with and to get this, any normal kill with your upgraded Boner will count towards this trophy.

[top]
The Orthodontist
Defeat 30 enemies with the TEETHGRINDER

A Hole in Your Head
Perform 5 headshots in a row with the BIG BONER

This trophy is missable!
You can only get this trophy in Act 4-1! Johnson will transform into the BIG BONER after a rather enjoyable phone call. You have to use your mighty tool to keep three streets clean in this mini-game chapter. You can switch between the streets with and . Huge Demon's will be approaching you, simply head shot five of them in a row and this trophy is in the book. Like with Nasty Headache, it's okay if you miss between your five headshots. Aim a little higher and just make sure you hit the head or thin air and you will be fine. There are three stages in this chapter, try to get the trophy in the first stage. It's much easier than the other two and you will have plenty of time to aim carefully.

[top]
Orthodontic Pleasures
Defeat 50 enemies with THE DENTIST

This trophy is missable!
You will unlock The Dentist at the end of Act 4-4. Simply kill 50 enemies with it and this trophy will be yours. You don't have to lock on to them for your kills to count.

[top]
Skullblaster Master
Defeat 50 enemies with the SKULLBLASTER

This trophy is missable!
There is a perfect spot to get this. In act 5-1 you'll have a bowling minigame. Your objective is to 'bowl' as strike, and as the developers didn't want this to turn into a death trap you'll get your ammo back every time you screw up on this. Just stay to the left and shoot to hit the right side; you will kill about 5 to 9 demons each time without getting a strike. Do this until you got the trophy, then go for the strike.

[top]
Nasty Headache
Perform 5 Head Shots in a row with any weapon except Big Boner

This trophy is missable!
This isn't really hard as missing an enemy completely won't break your combo; all you have to do is to make sure not to hit anything except the head. What you want to do is to aim a little higher to ensure that you will hit the demon's head or thin air. It goes without saying that you should choose a spot with at least 5 demons to go for this trophy. The area should also be spacious enough to allow you to keep your distance from your enemies.
A perfect spot to get this is in the lake in chapter 3-2 (where you find Red Gem #15). You will have a group of three demons respawning infinitely there. You can also get this in Paula's apartment at the beginning of the game. Note: You DON'T have to get the head shot slow-motion animation five times in a row, a 'normal' headshot will do.

[top]
The Puppeteer
Perform a Head Shot right after a Leg Mutilation when the enemy is flying back in the air

A LOT of luck is involved here. Use The Teether, The Teethgrinder or The Dentist (without locking on) and aim slightly below the crotch area of a normal demon. Shoot off its legs and then keep firing. If you are lucky, you'll hit its head before it touches the ground. Keep trying with every demon you come across and you will get this rather sooner than later.

[top]
Fire in the Hole!
Defeat 3 enemies at once using the Barrels of Light

A great opportunity to get this is right after you met your first "sushi with a dick" aka your first sushi lamp in 2-3. Light it up and follow it a bit until you encounter three demons. They will try to retreat from the light, unfortunately three light barrels are blocking their path. You should know what to do from here . Aim for one of those barrels and this trophy will be yours.

[top]
Fiesta Caliente!
Defeat 5 enemies at once using the Hot Boner

Your Boner will be upgraded to the Hot Boner at the end of Act 3-1. The Hot Boner allows you to place mines wherever you please. All you have to do is to aim with and charge the mine by holding . Once it is loaded, release to fire away the mine and then shoot at it to make it explode. You are allowed to place more than one mine for this trophy!

Now all you need is a good spot to get this. There are actually two good opportunities to obtain this trophy. The first one is in Act 3-3. Not long after you got the Skullfest 9000, you will encounter half a dozen demons coming at you at once. Place some mines for a neat chain reaction and shoot at the right moment, if everything goes according to plan you will kill five of the pack and the trophy will pop. If you screw up, simply quit and reload to try again.

Another opportunity is in 4-5. After you take out the Darkness hand you go up a small hill and go through a gate on the left into a cemetery. Kill the first wave of demons then about 6-8 will come after you. Stay down by the gate and blast one with a Boner shot. Let them get down by the gate, then run up the hill and turn around and blast them.

[top]
Trash'em While They're Out!
Perform all 5 brutal kills on Normal Demons frozen by the Light Shot

All you have to do for a brutal kill is to stun a normal demon with your light shot ( and ) and then melee it with as long as it is still stunned. Garcia can perform five different brutal kills; unfortunately there is now way for you to decide which one he will use, the outcome of your attack is completely random. Just keep performing brutal kills until you have seen every version at least once and the trophy will pop.

[top]
Drunk in Public
Knock back 3 drinks in a row

You can already get this in chapter 2-1. You will find two bottles in the house with the baby-face demon guarding the door, a third one can be found behind the door on the opposite side of the street. Once you got three bottles, just press to drink. Do this with all three bottles and the trophy will be yours.
Of course you don't have to waste you booze like this. You will find plenty of bottles in the game. When you health is really low, you will need about three bottles for full health anyway. Just knock them back right after each other and the trophy will be yours.

[top]
Stingy Bastard
Save more than 300 White Gems in your inventory

This trophy is missable!
...at least in theory. The game is pretty easy actually, and you don't really have to spend any money when playing on easy or normal difficulty. Don't waste your money on booze or ammo and you can easily get this by chapter 2-3. You should be over 200 when you enter the graveyard. There you will encounter a three-headed boss demon, shrouded in darkness. It will keep spawning demons until you kill it, so just stay outside of the darkness and keep killing those demons until you got your 300 white gems. You can actually get as much as 999 Gems here, which helps with High in Las Vegas as well. Get some bottles of Tequila from the nearest vending machine to celebrate your wealth.

High in Las Vegas

You will need 80 Red Gems do upgrade everything in Shadows of the Damned. 38 of those Red Gems are scattered throughout the game, the remaining 42 can be bought from Christopher's shop. You will meet Christopher in 2-3 for the first time. He will charge 45 White Gems for one Red Gem on easy, 75 on normal and 120 on hard. Note that your last chance to buy Red Gems from Christopher will be at the end of 5-2!

You have to get all the Gems in one playthrough as there is neither chapter select nor NG+ to save you if you missed one. If you wanna be on the safe side: It's possible to farm Red Gems in 2-1. Have a look at the Cheats, Glitches & Exploits section of this guide to learn how this works.

There are two immensely helpful videos by Brownman from Achievementhunters hidden in the spoiler box below. If you prefer a written guide, just scroll down a bit, I put one together for you.
