[top]Tips & Strategies

  • The game is pretty straight forward, but it will take a while for the All I can really say is practice and look on videos on Youtube and on several credible sites, particularly If you're not experienced in fighters, chances are you'll need to invest several hours into this game just to get the basics down.


  • Beat arcade mode with all characters (including DLC if you have it).
  • Unless you're pretty decent at fighting games, I would recommend for you to find a buddy or two. The online trophies can be a pain because you'll need to do thing such as winning 100 matches and play against all characters in the game.
  • Once you beat the game with everyone offline and do all of the online trophies, you'll accumulate the vast majority of the trophies in the game. If not, you can do clean up for trophies such as Mega Buster
  • The last step and likely the hardest one is to complete all missions (96% with DLC). This time around the missions are a little tougher and you have to do more of them as well complete all of them if you don't have the DLC. The characters' missions from the original game aren't the same either and some even have a few more moves. So if you had trouble with the original then expect worse on this version. If you're having problems, send me a PM or go this thread for questions:
  • After all of this, you should have the platinum. If not, then just simply clean up


The Ultimate
Obtain all Trophies.

Like any other game with a platinum, get all other trophies for this one to unlock.

Waiting for the Trade
View all endings in Arcade mode.

This trophy is tedious and will take a bit, but it's still pretty easy. You're going to have to play arcade mode 49 (51/DLC), beating Galactus with everyone and purposely losing to Galactus. You have a team of three fighters, but the you'll only unlock the ending with the character you beat Galactus with. In the previous version, you needed to lose to Galactus in order to get the ending trophy. In this version, you don't, but you still need to do so in order to get the Comic Collector . This also applies for the DLC. All you have to do is just set the game on very easy and the match to 30 seconds and you should get the endings in a few hours.

The Best There Is
Beat Arcade mode on the hardest difficulty.

I would recommend to have your settings on very hard (obviously) and the time to 30 seconds and just try to do chip damage if you're not good at the game. My personal team is Hulk, Doctor Doom, and Dante. The trophy is simple. It's just a matter of finding the right team for you and beating the A.I.

Saving My Quarters
Beat Arcade mode without using any continues.

This trophy is pretty easy to do. If you're having trouble, just set the game to an easier level and you'll get this trophy with no problems.

The Points Do Matter
Earn 400,000 points in Arcade mode.

See High-Score Hero

High-Score Hero
Earn 500,000 points in Arcade mode.

While you play arcade mode, you'll likely not get 500K during arcade mode. You need to make sure when you start on arcade you need to make sure your settings are as follows:

Difficulty: on Easy at least
Time: Infinite
Damage: Lowest

You can do it on the easiest level, but you want the A.I. to be on easy because you need to have the computer to attack you at least. Your can choose any team you want, but I would recommend to have a character that can build your meter up. Choose Morrigan, Amaterasu, or Frank West (all characters with the Y-assist) and constantly use their assist to build up your meter. Now when you chose your team, you're gonna wait to play defense. Pretty much run away from your opponent purposely for a few minutes. When your opponent attacks you, use advanced guards as often as possible. You also don't want to damage your opponent too much. So perform snapbacks as often as possible. You want to perform all aspects, such as basic defense and offense. I'll make a video of how it should be done.

Missions? Possible.
Clear 120 missions in Mission mode.

See Master of Tasks

Up To The Challenge
Clear 240 missions in Mission mode.

See Master of Tasks

Master of Tasks
Clear 480 missions in Mission mode.

This version isn't as forgiving as the previous one. You'll need to do all missions with everybody, unless you have the DLC. Even with it you'll still need to do 96% of them. The characters from the original version have totally different missions also and overall they're slightly harder. If you're having problems with any mission in particular, go to this thread: I'll be happy to help you and I plan on making a video on a trial or so and will try to break them down.

Above Average Joe
Land a Viewtiful Combo. (Arcade/online only)

Mutant Master
Land an Uncanny Combo. (Arcade/online only)

A viewtiful combo is when you do at least a 31 hit combo. An uncanny combo is 91+ hits. There are several ways to do a combo with several hits. The easiest way to do it is by doing Super Skrull's Inferno attack and rapidly tap buttons while he's doing the move. If done right, you should have 99 hits. I will show a video in the future hopefully.

Mega Buster

These are the ways to use a hyper bar:

Using hyper specials (1-3 bars)
Snap Backs (1 bar)

To perform an advance guard, press two attack buttons ( or ) at the same time while guarding. It's best to go for advanced guards while your opponent is doing a hyper combo. You can get several of them by massing the attack buttons and blocking. Some moves for go for the guards are Iron Man's 'Proton Cannon' or Ryu's 'Shinku-Hadoken.'

A Friend in Need

To do a crossover counter, hit + or while you're blocking. If done right, you will switch characters on your team. Trying to do these by simply playing is a little hard to do. So if you have trouble, you can always have a partner to help. Perform 50 of them and you get the trophy.

Mighty Teamwork

If your opponent flashes red, hit up+, green is left/right+, blue is down+ Do this 30 times in matches and you'll get the trophy. You can also get this with a boosting partner, if you're having trouble.

Big Bang Theory

The same exact thing as a hyper finish. Only this time it's you and your teammate(s) finishing the match with a hyper combo. You'll need at least 2 bar meters and have one of your teammates still alive. Once you have enough meter, simply press and depending on you team and assists you can have a combo that hits well into the 100s.

Training Montage
Play in Offline Mode for over 5 hours.

See Training in Isolation

Training in Isolation
Play in Offline Mode for over 30 hours

This will come naturally overtime as you're playing any offline mode, in training, mission (which you'll likely spend most of your time), and offline mode will add to your time. To check the status of your time, just simply press The trophy will pop up as soon as you hit 30 hours. Pretty easy to do.

Seductive Embrace
Play in Online Mode for over 5 hours.

See Rivals Welcome

Rivals Welcome
Play in Online Mode for over 30 hours.

If you do this by playing just playing the game online, you're likely going to be playing several hundred matches because matches will last very short and if you happen to go against someone real good maybe as quick as ten seconds. The quickest way to accumulate 30 hours is use the 'turbo' method, meaning if you have any controller with a turbo (i.e. an arcade stick), you can set up a lobby with a partner and have your turbo on a leave on your PS3 overnight and rack up time that way. You won't hit each other and the games will be draws. Each match will last around 3 minutes or so. Once 30 hours hit, the trophy pops up.

Brave New World
Participate in any mode online.

This is an easy trophy to achieve. Just play in any kind of online match and you'll get this trophy. Pretty simple.

Participate in 100 matches online.

See Forged From Steel

Dreaded Opponent
Participate in 200 matches online.

See Forged From Steel

Forged From Steel
Participate in 300 matches online.

This is pretty long, but all you have to do is play 300 matches online. It doesn't matter if they're ranked or not.

Full Roster
Battle against all characters online.

There are are total of 48 characters (50w/DLC). You don't need the DLC for this trophy. You likely won't get the trophy by playing online either as most folks choose the same characters more or less. You can set up a player match with a friend and each of you will only have to play 16 matches, choosing three different characters each match. This will probably take 15 minutes to do with a partner.

Win without calling your partners or switching out in an online match.

This is another relatively easy trophy to do with a partner. Just don't press any of the shoulder buttons (assuming you play with a DS3) and win an online match.

Need a Healing Factor
Win without blocking in an online match.

Very simple to do with a partner. Just keep attacking and don't block to win the match.

Crazy Good
Surpass the rank of Fighter.

See Fighting Machine

Mega Good
Surpass the 6th rank of any class.

See Fighting Machine

Win 10 battles in Ranked Match.

See Fighting Machine

Slam Master
Win 50 battles in Ranked Match.

See Fighting Machine

Fighting Machine
Win 100 battles in Ranked Match.

This will be one of the harder trophies to obtain. If you're not slightly decent in this series, you're likely going to take a real long time to get 100 ranked wins. You boost your wins, if you're serious having problems getting wins, however. It will be more tedious, but at least it works. You or your boosting partner can create a ranked lobby and try to find each that way. If you and your partner don't match up with each other, you can always back out of the room and make another room. You can also go for the Noble Effort as well. Use this thread for boosting:

Noble Effort
Get a 5-game win streak in Ranked Match.

See Fighting Machine

Participate in an 8 player Lobby online.

This is a simple trophy to get and you don't even have to play in a match for it. All you need to do is be in an 8-player lobby and make sure there are 8 total players in it. Once 8 people are in, the trophy pops up shortly after that.

Collect 100 titles.

This may seem like a lot of titles, but it's really not hard to obtain titles. It is nowhere as tedious as the SF4 series as far as getting titles goes. You get them by doing things such as doing 5 missions with a character, beating arcade mode, or playing x-amount of times with a character. To check your status on how many titles you have, press then on the main menu.

A Warrior Born
Earn 5,000 Player Points (PP).

See Divine Brawler

Devil with a Blue Coat
Earn 30,000 Player Points (PP).

See Divine Brawler

Divine Brawler
Earn 100,000 Player Points (PP).

It takes a while to get to 100K player points, but you will get points by playing the game. You will likely get the bulk of your points while you're beating arcade mode with everybody. Every time you beat arcade, you'll gather a few thousand points each time. When you play online matches, you'll get a few hundred each time, win or lose. So just continue to play the game and the trophy will eventually pop up. You can check your status by pressing at the main menu.

Comic Collector
Unlock all items in the Gallery.

Just follow the same methods as Waiting For the Trade and you will have the trophy in a few hours.

Passport to Beatdown Country
Fight in all of the stages.

There are a total of 18 stages in the game. All you need to do is complete a match in all stages to get the trophy. Not complicated to do.
