[top]Introduction

The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena is a very difficult, near impossible platinum due to a few deciding factors. 1) There is next to no one ever online, so boosting is required for trophy hunting. 2) The hardest difficulty for this game is unfair to a point where if you don't pull off perfectly timed moves you will be obliterated over and over again. It is for masochists, even if you're skilled at the game, the later levels will own you. You have been warned. 3) Tedious tedious tedious work. No less then 75 hours total for the online; each single player game may take up to 2 playthroughs to complete, which is around 30 hours total in itself.

Note: None of the multiplayer trophy requirements need to be done within a single round or match unless otherwise stated.

((This guide would not be possible without the help of Eviltb, who wrote the Xbox360 guide and assisted me in my own quest to one day platinum this near impossible game))

[top]Trophies

[top]
Platinum
Get All Trophies.

Collect every single Bronze, Silver, and Gold trophy for The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay/ Assault On Dark Athena to get the Platinum trophy.

[top]
Medium Security Jail Break
Complete the Escape From Butcher Bay campaign on normal difficulty.

Beat the remastered Escape From Butcher Bay campaign on normal difficulty. If you play and beat the game on the hard difficulty setting first, you can restart from the final in-game checkpoint on the normal difficulty setting and beat the last area again to earn this trophy.

[top]
High Security Jail Break
Complete the Escape from Butcher Bay campaign on hard difficulty.

Beat the remastered Escape From Butcher Bay campaign on hard difficulty. This is a very frustrating and tedious challenge as the game's AI is smart as it is. You can not earn this trophy by playing on easy then switching to hard. You must beat each checkpoint on hard difficulty to earn this trophy. Good luck.

[top]
Chain Smoker
Collect all cigarette packages.

Cigarette packs are what you need to unlock bonus content and artwork in the game. Sometimes they're in plain sight and some times they're tricky to find. A lot of them are used as prizes for completing in-game side missions. There are a total of 59 through out the campaign.

Here is an effective guide from IGN that shows each cigarette location in order of finding them: The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay Cigarette Locations FAQ - IGN FAQs

[top]
Bell Boy
Complete all side missions in Butcher Bay.

Although most of the side missions come to you in the game, some will be easy to miss, especially in the Tower 17 area. Just make sure you talk to everyone and always agree to help them. Most of the missions are delivery or contract killings. There is a section in the start menu to help keep you in check with your current mission objectives.

When I played the original game, I discovered that one mission in Tower 17, where you are asked to kill off all the Blueskins, can not be completed unless you kill the Blueskin (which is an inmate with blue tattoos on their face) who congratulates you for killing Rust in the first part of the game. I don't know if the glitch transferred over to the remastered version or not but it's not a task you need to go far out of your way to do.

[top]
Main Frame Hack
Find the Butcher Bay main frame and input your DNA.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. You will get this trophy right before you get your first Assault Rifle.

[top]
Eye Shine
Find Pope Joe and let him perform the eye shine surgery.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign and is very rewarding once you have it.

[top]
Kill Abbott
Get the opportunity to kill Abbott.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Abbot is a very aggressive and cheap foe who can not be countered with physical attacks. The best method is to guard and take some cheap shots at him in various angles as his weapon is very unpleasant to be at the receiving end of. There are two ways to get to Abbot, and the most rewarding way is to go through the arena fights, which also yields the "Ring Fight Champion" trophy.

[top]
Ring Fight Champion
Beat all competition in the Tower 17 ring.

This is part of the main story, but it CAN be missed. If you choose to go the drug route to get to Abbot, you will miss out on several of these ring matches required to get the trophy (and cigarette packs). The matches are as followed:

1. Harman - No Weapons, easy win, money prize.
2. Baasim - No Weapons, med-easy win, money and cig pack prize.
3. Sawtooth - Uses a shiv, med-easy win, money and cig pack prize.
4. Cusa - No weapons, tough win (counter a lot), money and cig pack prize.
5. Bam - No weapons, very tough win (use a club), progresses the main campaign.

Note: You may want to heal via the Nano machine you can buy Ropes into letting you use before this match. Return to Centurion in order to get your prize money and cig pack. DON'T FORGET THAT!

[top]
Control a Riot Guard
Find and Control a Riot Guard.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. If you played the Xbox version of Escape From Butcher Bay, this trophy includes parts that were PC exclusive. You'll get to it soon after escaping Tower 17.

[top]
Kill a Heavy Guard
Find and kill a Heavy Guard.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. You should get this when you kill the heavy guard in the Fuel Transport area. Take the guard out with the barrels moving on rails over his head.

[top]
Control a Heavy Guard
Find and control a Heavy Guard.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. You should find the open robot soon after you escape the cryo prison.

[top]
Kill Rust
Find Rust and kill him.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Rust is the first 'boss' you face off against in Escape From Butcher Bay. The easiest way to kill him is equip a shiv and hack n' slash till he's dead.

[top]
Master Of Athena
Complete the Assault on Dark Athena campaign on normal difficulty.

Beat the new Assault on Dark Athena campaign on normal difficulty. If you play and beat the game on the hard difficulty setting first, you can restart from the final in-game checkpoint on the normal difficulty setting, and beat the last area again to earn this trophy (just like in Escape From Butcher Bay).

[top]
Champion Of Athena
Complete the Assault on Dark Athena campaign on hard difficulty.

Beat the new Assault on Dark Athena campaign on hard difficulty. This is a very frustrating and tedious challenge as the game's AI is smart as it is (just like in Escape From Butcher Bay). You can not earn this trophy by playing on easy then switching to hard. You must beat each checkpoint on hard difficulty to earn this trophy. Again, good luck.

[top]
Open The Vents
Get a Dark Athena vent tool.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Just get your vent tool in the cell blocks when the opportunity arises.

[top]
Stealth Master
Get through the Cargo Bay without being noticed.

Difficulty has no effect on this easy-to-miss trophy. You must get through the whole area of the Cargo Bay without being seen even once. If you're spotted, restart from the checkpoint. The best and easiest way to get this is to follow the route in this video:

[top]
Control An Alpha Drone
Find and control an Alpha Drone.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. You'll find the one you can control at the end of the game. You get this trophy as soon as the drone is under your control.

[top]
Kill An Alpha Drone
Find and kill an Alpha Drone.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. You can only kill these nuances with the SCAR gun. Sticky five successful shots, detonate them all at once, run up and perform a kill cut-scene and he's history.

[top]
Melee Master
Find and beat Iron Lord.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Simply kill this tough opponent and the trophy is yours. I suggest a very evasive method, as countering him is not your best option. Run around the area and pummel him from all angles and guard every time he prepares to string a few hits in on you.

[top]
Kill Spinner
Find and kill Spinner.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Kill him with either the SCAR gun or an Alpha Drone grenade. Either way it can't be missed.

[top]
Ulaks
Find and equip yourself with a pair of Ulaks.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. This will be your very first Athena trophy.

[top]
Rebel
Start a Riot on the Athena.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Just like all the other story related trophies, you'll get this when the said action occurs in the story.

[top]
Control a Mech
Find and control a Mech on the Dark Athena.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Control a Mech guard and raise some hell. Another easy story related trophy.

[top]
Escape the Athena
Find a way out of the Athena.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. There is a pattern here, I just know it! Should be one of the last trophies you get for Assault on Dark Athena.

[top]
Master of Drones
Complete the Main Decks using only two drones.

Part of the main campaign but it CAN be missed, mainly because you can control up to three drones in this area. It is recommend you do this on an easy difficulty if you don't want to take too much damage. You must kill one of the drones by walking them into the fan in the area. In order to make the progression easier, let the enemy guards come to you, taking little steps at a time to get through. You should get this when the last guard dies.

[top]
Honest Fighting
Find and kill Jaylor in a fair fist fight.

After controlling the Mech, return to the cells and have a fair fist-to-fist fight (NO weapons!!). The best way to fight him is to take pot shots, as he is tough to counter and can not be stealth killed. Beat him to a pulp with your bare fists and the trophy is yours.

[top]
SCAR Gun
Find and equip yourself with a SCAR gun.

Can't be missed. Part of the main campaign. Equip yourself with this universally useful weapon and it's an easy trophy.

[top]
Sniper Rifle
Find and equip yourself with a Sniper Rifle.

Can be missed. Part of the main campaign. You can only get the sniper rifle in the refinery, which we can only get into after you help Gabriel (if you don't agree to help him no sniper rifle for you).

[top]
Margo's Locker
Find and open Margo's Locker.

After you have Margo's tooth, check the bunk for a bit of paper with the code to his locker. When you enter the fan room later in the level, you will see the locker by the fan. Enter the code and there you go. This can be missed.

[top]
Miles Letter
Help Miles and transmit his message.

You will meet Miles while on the main campaign. Agree to help him and send a letter to his family. Later on in the cell blocks, search the cells for his letter. After you have the letter enter the vent in front of the mech suit. When you get to the room with the computer you used before to communicate with Dacher, use it to transmit Miles' message. This can easily be missed, especially if you go in the vents without the letter.

[top]
Gabril
Find and help Gabriel.

Agree to help Gabril in Aguerra and take out five signal jammers. This will require some backtracking to the previous islands but isn't overall difficult. If you get too confused or lost just check up any guide for assistance.

[top]
Bounty Hunter
Collect all bounty cards.

This is the most time consuming trophy on the Assault On Dark Athena game, much like the smokes in Escape From Butcher Bay. You must collect every last bounty card in the game. Here is a useful guide via IGN:

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Bounty Cards (Dark Athena) - IGN FAQs

[top]
Winner Level 1
Win 10 matches.

Both Player and Ranked matches account for this. By far the easiest of the three Winner Level trophies because you can actually obtain this in a few days without boosting if you're dedicated.

[top]
Winner Level 2
Win 100 matches.

Both Player and Ranked matches account for this. If you have what it takes, you can get this trophy after about a year of lucky online play. Otherwise this trophy is impossible without boosting due to lack of people online.

[top]
Winner Level 3
Win 1000 matches.

The trophy that will prevent just about anyone from ever completing this game 100%. Both Player and Ranked matches account for this, and if you have the audacity and an ample amount of time, you can boost for this trophy. If you go that route, stick to short, timed matches on small levels. I also suggest you gun for Basic Weapon Handling Level 3 while you do this. Studies online lead me to believe that even using the fast methods of boosting, it will take up to a good 75 hours to get this trophy... minimum. Have fun.

[top]
Basic Weapon Handling 1
Kill 10 people.

Easy, just kill ten different people. This could be the same player ten times. Easy boost if you can't find anyone online.

[top]
Basic Weapon Handling 2
Kill 1000 people.

Easier to obtain by boosting then finding a game online due to the lack of people playing online. If you want my theory

[top]
Basic Weapon Handling 3
Kill 10000 people.

Another tedious trophy, but no where near as difficult as the Winner Level 3 trophy because your kills rank up even if you lose the match. Just keep at it, preferably boosting with a friend. Fight on a small map, stick to weapons that kill quickly like the shotgun. I believe Capture The Flag levels are the best for this because they don't end unless you actually capture the flags. Searching online has lead me to believe it takes around 35 hours to get this trophy.

[top]
Advanced Weapon Handling
Prove that you can use your weapon under difficult circumstances.

Here's a tricky one. Get five kills while crouching. Get five kills while leaning against a wall (crouching behind a wall and shooting counts to both numbers). Get five kills where you shoot your opponent and they fall back into a pit and die (done on Fate's Hive and The Factory levels only I believe). Five kills while you're in the air. Five kills while you're enemy is in the air. Both airborne kills can be done together if you use the SCAR gun and attack an orb to your enemy, then you both jump at the same time and detonate the orb. That's a total of twenty five kills.

[top]
Killer
Get a 4 kill long kill streak. Get a double kill. Get the first kill in a match.

Just as it says. Kill four people without being killed yourself. Get a double kill, which is when you kill another person in succession of about a second (the announcer will tell you if you are successful). Be the first person to get a kill in a match. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty certain this does not have to be all in one match.

[top]
Murderer
Get a 8 kill long kill streak. Get a triple kill. Get the last kill in a match.

Just as it says. Kill eight people without being killed yourself. Get a triple kill, which is when you kill two other people in succession of about a second (the announcer will tell you if you are successful). Be the last person in any match to get a kill. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty certain this does not have to be all in one match.

[top]
Dominator
Get a 12 kill long kill streak. Get a quadruple kill. Get the first and last kill in a match.

Just as it says. Kill twelve people without being killed yourself. Get a quadruple kill, which is when you kill four other people in succession of about a second (the announcer will tell you if you are successful). In a match, be the first person to get a kill as well as the last one. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty certain this does not have to be all in one match.

[top]
Hero
Capture a flag. Capture a powercell. Win a round alone against at least 3 enemies.

This is best done while boosting, but still not that hard overall. Simply score a point by capturing a flag in CTF mode. Capturing a powercell occurs on Butcher Bay Riot mode. The last portion is self-explanatory.

[top]
Juggernaut
Keep on going no matter what.

None of these have to be done on the same match. For this tough as nails trophy, you must survive a direct hit from a SCAR gun. It is possible with full health and maybe one armor power up. Survive 500 damage, which is basically 5 lives worth of damage. Simply heal every time your health is low and don't die till you've taken 500 damage at least. Last but not least you need to survive a whole match without dying, not just one round.

[top]
Underdog
Never give up.

In Pitch Black mode, kill Riddick with a melee weapon or melee attack with a gun. You must kill the lead player in a match. Get a payback kill, which is when you are killed, you turn around and kill the same player who just killed you in a short amount of time (the announcer will say "comeback" when successful). Finally, you'll need a comeback win. The best way to do this is to boost, and have a partner kill you 19 times in a 20 kills to in match, then with your last life, win the match.

[top]
Sniper Master
They'll never see it coming.

Get a headshot kill with a sniper rifle. Kill someone at least 60m away from you with a sniper. Finally, kill someone with a sniper rifle without using the scope (which is best done up close and personal).

[top]
Explosive Master
BOOM!

Kill someone with a direct hit using a grenade launcher (splash damage does not count). Get a SCAR gun kill, which is practically the same as the grenade launcher. Get a kill with explosive's splash damage (could be any weapon, as long as it's an indirect kill). Explosive double kill, which is best done with a SCAR gun by simply firing two orbs onto two different enemies, then detonate them at the same time (they must be killed by it to work). Finally, dish out over 600 damage with explosives in a single life.

[top]
Trigger Happy
Don't stop firing until you are sure you are out of ammo.

Get a non-stop fire killing streak with the minigun. You'll need 1000 rounds and some good aim. Mow down your enemies until you're on a streak without letting go of the trigger button. Next, get a double kill with the minigun. Finally, finish a match having fired at least 500 rounds with the minigun. Match must end to register.

[top]
Melee Expert
Close and personal.

Melee kill an enemy from behind with a melee weapon or your fists. Get a double kill using a melee weapon or your fists. Go on a killing streak with melee weapons (the announcer will let you know you're on a streak).

[top]
Funwrecker
Ruin someone's day.

In CTF mode, kill a flag carrier. In Butcher Bay Riot mode, kill someone carrying a captured powercell. Kill an enemy while they're powered up with a damage booster/ enhancement. Kill an enemy who is on a killing streak.
