[top]Tips and Strategies

-Break everything- you get badge points, some secrets and trophies. Press square every where.

-Donít rush- you will miss some great views, but mainly if you do you will miss collectibles and trophies

-Ask For Help- the last thing I want is a good rental with out a platinum. If you need any help, just message me and Iíll surely help you (I take bribes). I know every trick in this game.

-Have Fun- for those who rented it for a platinum (probably most of you) have some fun. Beat up russel, ditch Dug of beat Muntz a few more times. Itís a fun game with some fun stuff.


1. have fun whacking as many butterflies as you can while playing through the game. These trophies come naturally. Half will come before you know it. Beating the game will take a few hours. Also use Russel to farm as many butterflies as you can.

1.5 clean sweep what you missed. use the guide to find the needed collectibles and needed merit badges. The collectibles are easy to find.


Platinum Trophy
Unlock every Trophy in the game.

This will take you MAXIMUM 7 hours. I just like my time and not trying to rush it.

Adventure is Out There
Defeat the first wave of combat planes.

Complete the first level by shooting all 3 planes with dug, hold to shoot.
You will receive the wings badge and hopefully the survivor badge trophy, donít hold because you will speed up and maybe crash.

To Paradise Falls
Complete the level to start Carl's journey to Paradise Falls.

Complete level 2, when you fight the wasps, be sure to collect 3 bugle icons for Russel and use them on the wasps to get the music badge trophy, do the same with Russelís canteen for the first aid badge.

A Bird Named Kevin
Find Kevin before Muntz does.

Complete level 3. Be sure to get into those snare traps for the buddy system badge trophy.

Slide and Slither
Defeat the giant Anaconda.

Complete level 4. This is a boss fight so try having a second controller for the teamwork badge trophy.

Paradise Falls
Help Carl get his house to the top of Paradise Falls.

Complete level 9. When you enter the first cave, remember to wait for Dug. You will get the Hiking Badge trophy here. This is my favourite level because you get to climb a mountain and get a good view as well.

Spirit of Adventure
Free Russell and Kevin, then escape the Dirigible.

Complete level 10. This is epic part in the storyline. There's 3 secrets including the golden jaguar, so look everywhere.

Adventure is Here
Defeat Muntz's canine squadron in the skies above Paradise Falls.

Complete level 11. This is story related, but remember not to hold too much because it speeds up and hold to slow down when shooting down Muntz's Dirigible. Congratulations you have completed the game.

Teamwork Badge

This is the only time you need a second controller, just defeat either boss.

Animation Badge
Unlock the Bonus Art.

While trying to get the Ellie badge trophy you should get this. You get bonus art in some quest cards; you have to unlock all art.

First Aid Badge
Use Russell's Canteen three times.

The canteen icon can be found throughout the game. The simple way is if you havenít got it yet, in the giant anaconda or crocodile boss fight, there is a lot of the bottles, so pick them up and drink away.

Bug Hunting Badge
Catch or squash 100 Dio Bugs or Butterflies.

This is simple since you have catch and squish the bugs to complete the quest cards. I had trouble aiming, keep pressing and soon youíll be used to the camera and get a hang of it.

Bird Watching Badge
Locate Kevin for the first time.

During a cutscene in level 3, you will first see Kevin (thatís what Russell names him)

Defense Badge
Successfully defend against 10 dog ambushes.

A dog ambush is when you have to fight Alpha, Beta, Gamma and other dogs by pressing on time. This is also story related and you have to do these to move on. I heard itís best to only do it with Carl, I did and got the trophy so stick with Carl.

Fishing Badge
Survive against the hungry Piranhas.

This is, again, story related. In level 6 swim around the piranhas in the pond.

Just beat any level you have beaten before, I replayed the first level for this reason and got 600 badge points and a few collectibles, so do it on a level with stuff you missed.

Shoveling Badge
Dig up all of the hidden bones using Dug.

From level 5 and up whenever Dug is with you there will be dig spots on the ground, clear every one as you see them and you should get this easily.
