[top]Tips & Strategies

Play all playthroughs in both story modes on Very Easy difficulty and with 9 Health Points and 9 Credits. This will ensure that you do not end up dying and having no more credits, meaning the level is over and you have to restart it from the beginning by choosing it at the main menu.

If there is a break in the waves of zombies, reload! The submachine gun in the game reloads extremely fast, no matter how many bullets remain in the oversized magazine.

While you can simply spray bullets into zombie hordes that advance on you, it will bring your accuracy and kill-type numbers down a lot. Spray bullets only when enclosed by a massive horde, and even then its best to just use a grenade. If you have the time, aim carefully for the enemy's head and pop off bullets until you see the creature go down and disappear. This will help give you a better kill-type score. Kill-types range from Good, Great, Excellent, Amazing, and Perfect.

Keep your eyes open for any containers, barrels or doors that appear to be breakable. In most cases, these items will contain secret objects or locations once broken that you can shoot or enter. This adds to your score if you can collect these items before the camera pans away.

There have been some reports on a glitch for the "See All Endings" trophy in House of the Dead 3, but there has been no similar reports for this game.


[top]Roadmap

You can 100% this game in 5-6 steps. I would recommend playing all 4 steps and every playthrough on Very Easy difficulty with 9 Health Points and 9 Credits, to ensure that you don't end up having to return to the main menu and start the level all over again. Also, your Health Points and Credits from the previous finished chapter (if playing on a continuous playthrough and not chapter select) carry over into the next one, so these extra Health Points and Credits will definitely come in handy, even on Very Easy.

STEP 1: Complete the normal story mode for House of the Dead 4.
For this step, do not worry about any trophies other than the story-related ones. This gives you a chance to get used to the submachine gun, grenades, enemies, bosses and secret locations/items. For the submachine gun, rate of fire is very high, almost too high for realistic submachine guns, reloading is super fast, and accuracy is pretty much dead on with very limited recoil.
You do not need to play this in one playthrough as there is chapter select from the main menu. This will be available up to the last completed level you have completed. By the end of this step, you will have 6 trophies: Escape , Lost , Emptiness , Despair , Reunion , and Hope . You also may have 2 other trophies that are missable: Eat This!!! , Cut the Wire .

STEP 2: Complete the SP story for House of the Dead 4.
Once you complete the normal story mode, you will have access at the main menu to play the story mode for House of the Dead 4 SP, which is a continuation from chapter 6 int he normal story mode. This version has only 2 chapters, and is recommended to be played when going for the trophy Top Agent . There aren't any missable trophies in this story mode, but you will have to play this mode 3 times in order to obtain all endings. For now, just complete this story mode and obtain one of the ending trophies. At the end of this step, you should have either: Who's Next? , Fight Begins , or Another Pandora's Box .

STEP 3: Complete the SP story mode again while going rank a Rank 2 or higher at the finish
For those who are comfortable with the game and its controls by now, you can do this step as step 2 instead.
Everything would be the same as step 2, only you will need to have much better accuracy (between 70% and 90%), a very high score (you need 70000, but you should get this easy since you are playing from the beginning to get the Top Agent trophy), and a well distributed kill-type (low GOOD level kills, moderate EXCELLENT level kills, moderate AMAZING level kills, and very high PERFECT level kills. At the end of this step, you should have at least 2 of the following: Who's Next? , Fight Begins , Another Pandora's Box , Top Agent .

STEP 4: Finish the SP story mode the last 1 or 2 times to receive all the ending trophies
As long as you play every playthrough on Very Easy difficulty and with 9 Credits and 9 Health Points, the last piece is to get all endings of the game in both modes. Start first with the SP story mode as its the shortest and has the easiest requirements. For more info on the specific ending requirements see the SP ending trophies at the bottom of the guide. At the end of this step, you should have all of the following: Who's Next? , Fight Begins , Another Pandora's Box , Top Agent .

STEP 5: Finish the House of the Dead 4 normal story mode for all remaining endings
Once again, play this step on Very Easy difficulty, with 9 Credits and 9 Health Points. For this step you will need to play the normal story mode of House of the Dead 4 from the beginning each time. You will need to meet requirements to see each ending. For more info on these requirements and the endings themselves, see the trophy Pandora's Box below. At the end of this step, you should have the trophy Pandora's Box .

STEP 6: Clean Up
For this step all you need to go for is any remaining trophies you haven't earned. These should be only the trophies labeled missable.

THIS IS STORY RELATED & CAN'T BE MISSED

For all of the levels in House of the Dead 4, even for the SP story mode, you should play the game on Very Easy difficulty with 9 Credits and 9 Health Points, to maximize your chances of completing the game in one sitting without having to start from the beginning.

[top]
EAT THIS!!!
During CHAPTER 1 Boss encounter, throw a grenade and damage JUSTICE.

For this all you have to do is make sure Justice is at a far enough point away from you, then pull the grenade button and hold it for 2 or 3 seconds while aiming at his mouth/outstretched tongue. Throw the grenade when there is a big enough opening, and Justice will swallow the grenade, stop moving, and the grenade will explode.

The trophy should pop a few seconds later.

[top]
CUT THE WIRE
During CHAPTER 2, cut the wire and let the enemies fall.

About halfway through the 2nd chapter, you will go through a doorway and you'll stop moving. There will be no enemies here for a brief second, so reload and aim slightly higher than the center of the screen. A platform will rise with three regular zombies and two blowtorch zombies. The platform is suspended by a hook and wire that looks exactly like the trophy icon. Shoot just below the hook at the wire and after about 10 or 12 shots later, the wire will be cut. As long as you were able to sever it fast enough and had at least 1 of the zombies on it still, you will get this trophy.

The wire that needs to be cut is in the video and shown be cut at 0:09

BONUS EXPLORER
Find a secret room.

This trophy is very hard to get as you need to know where you need to look at open the room at the right time, most of the time with a grenade.
here is a video from youtube that gives you a specific location in Chapter 2: LOST on where to find a secret room:

GET THE BUS
Shoot and destroy the BUS.

There are two locations to destroy the little bus. First of all, the bus (once appearing) will be constantly moving, and with the constant camera changes of the game, you may need to do this a couple times.

The first location is in Chapter 4: DESPAIR, and will be behind a whole bunch of zombies.

Here is a video guide from youtube on what to do and where to look. Be watching at the middle left of the screen.

The other location for the bus (and not recommended at all) is in Chapter 1 of the SP story mode. Here you will be facing a semi-truck coming right at you. You will need to shoot the driver of the truck before the 10 second timer runs out. The bus will be in a barrel on the left side.

The reason why I would not recommend this option to get the trophy is because you will definitely need 2 people to destroy it, both people shooting at the bus. You will also both need to be aiming in the right location as soon as that timer starts, and the barrel must be broken for the bus to be released also right as timer starts. This is very difficult and should just be done in Chapter 4 of the normal story mode

[top]
PANDORA'S BOX
See all 4 endings of THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD 4.

As the trophy description mentions, you will need to see all 4 endings of the normal House of the Dead 4.
There are two easy-to-get endings and two hard-to-get endings.

These are the Easy-To-Get endings:
For both of these, get a final rank of 3 or below. These two, since they have the same requirements, will appear randomly. If you've already seen an ending and you get the same one, play the game again, while still getting a final rank 3 or below, and repeat this until you have seen both of the easy-to-get endings.

1) Goldman has left a pre-recorded message on his laptop. He will say he forgot something, then he'll say there is hope for the human race, and finally to travel north. Then he'll turn around and he will be disfigured and mangled, like a zombie, in a reference to an event that'll happen in

Toggle Spoiler



2)The other easy-to-get ending is almost exactly the same as the above ending, though instead of turning around and being a zombie, Goldman will simply walk away from the computer screen with his back to it.

These are the Hard-To-Get endings:
For both of these, get a final rank of 1 or 2. These two, since they have the same requirements, will appear randomly. If you've already seen an ending and you get the same one, play the game again, while still getting a final rank of 1 or 2, and repeat this until you have seen both of the hard-to-get endings.

1) Agent G will be standing in front of the fire in the courtyard, he makes a promise to his fallen partner to defeat the source of all this carnage. He will then wave his hand in goodbye.

2) A man in a business suit will limp over to Goldman's desk and sits on it. He will give a speech on how the humans deserve no hope and that their fate still remains the same, despite Agent G and his partner's efforts. He mentions there are more than 1 Pandora's Box.

[top]
TOP AGENT
Get RANK 2 or above in Final Result.

I would strongly recommend going for this trophy on the SP story mode. You will need to play it from the beginning.
For this trophy to unlock, you must have at least 70% accuracy, a very high score like 70000+, and a low amount of GOOD level kills, a low-to-moderate amount of EXCELLENT level kills, and high amount of AMAZING level kills, and a very high amount of PERFECT level kills. (Achieving each kill rank depends on how many shots it took to kill the enemy.)

The score should be obtained no problem in the SP playthrough, just get a few bonus pickups to add to the score if you are worried you might not make it.

[top]
WHO'S NEXT?
See the bad ending of HOD4 SP.

For this trophy, during the final boss battle at the end of Chapter 2 in the SP story mode, after the actual battle has ended, there will be a cutscene where the magician lifts a box (Pandora's Box) into the air, and a character will say "We only have one shot to destroy it!". From here, simply do nothing and then after another cutscene, this trophy will unlock.

[top]
FIGHT BEGINS
See the good ending of HOD4 SP.

For this trophy, during the final boss battle at the end of Chapter 2 in the SP story mode, after the actual battle has ended, there will be a cutscene where the magician lifts a box (Pandora's Box) into the air, and a character will say "We only have one shot to destroy it!". From here, pull the grenade button and hold it until the 10 second timer is at 5 seconds remaining. Aim carefully now, as you must hit the Pandora's Box directly with the grenade. When the grenade does hit, it will explode immediately and you should be left with about 2 seconds to spare. Once this is done, there will be another cutscene and then the trophy will unlock

[top]
ANOTHER PANDORA'S BOX
See the true ending of HOD4 SP.

This one is a tricky ending because you need 5 requirement to be met, all at once, in order to get this ending and the trophy.

The requirements are:
1) Start from the beginning of the SP story mode
2) Both chapters must be completed with an A rank or higher
3) During both chapters, you must not lose any credits, so another here another repeating of setting the game to Very Easy with 9 Health Points. This time, set the credits to 1, so you know for sure you haven't lost any credits, because if you lose 1 you're done.
4) After both levels' scores have been tallied, you must be at 70000 or higher
5) You must throw a grenade at Pandora's Box, exactly like the way I mentioned in the trophy Fight Begins , right above this one.

Once all 5 of these requirements are met, and you have completed the SP story mode with these requirements, this trophy will unlock.
