[top]Tips & Strategies

Most of your time spent playing through this DLC will be in Extinction mode. These trophies can be acquired offline or by yourself, but playing with a full team that communicates will make the process much easier. Look through and post in our Boosting Threads if you are looking for other players to help you.

This DLC's trophies can be tackled in any order you choose, but below is the quickest way to finish this DLC.

Get online and play through each new Multiplayer map. There is an alien hive in each new map that you need to shoot in order to complete the Egg-Stra XP challenge. Once you have completed the challenge, jump into Extinction mode and start the new map "Mayday." All you have to do is destroy the first hive and the first trophy will unlock.

Egg-stra Devastation!

Continue playing this session and move on to Step 2.

You must get through all three areas and defeat the Kraken to beat "Mayday." Collect all intel while you play through the map. Open all optional doors in order to gain access to toolboxes and start crafting schematics. Keep an eye out for Seeders and destroy 15 of their Seeder Turrets. While you are working on crafting all schematics, pick up the Hypno Knife schematic and gather the ingredients to trap a Rhino. You are also going to want to attempt to complete every challenge from this step onward.

The only trophy you should have left to earn is the completionist trophy. You should also go for any other trophies you may be missing.

Mayday Completionist


The Belly of the Beast
Reach the cargo area in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

After destroying a few hives, you will have to destroy one more. This particular hive is blocking your path forward. Once you set the drill down, a tentacle will bust through the hull behind you and begin to attack. Shoot it at the tip until it retreats. Once the hive is destroyed, make it through the door and up the stairs. The trophy will unlock once you enter the large room full of shipping containers.

Come Up For Air
Reach the top deck in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

You will have to destroy another 3 hives once you arrive in the Cargo Area. After the room is cleared, head up the stairs and destroy the door with your drill. This room is the Cargo Control Room and there is a button you can push on the desk. Pushing this button will lower a shipping container. Leave the control room and enter the shipping container, taking the drill with you. This shipping container will act as an elevator and it will take you to the top deck of the ship.

Survived Mayday
Kill the Kraken for the first time in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

The Kraken will send hoards of cryptid out to attack you. Fend them off with the mounted turrets and avoid the Kraken's tentacles. The Kraken will eventually begin to glow, heating up the floor and damaging the you if you happen to be standing on it. Remain in the turrets or run to one of the cryptid hives and stand on it to avoid the damage. While this is going on, you should shoot his weak spot which is at the top of his head. Taking off about 1/4 of his health will make him emit an EMP, which will destroy any equipment currently deployed and will also silence you, preventing you from using abilities for a short time. Find a shipping container to hide behind to avoid getting hit with his EMP. After the EMP, the Kraken will retreat and resurface on the opposite side of the ship. Repeat this process a few more times and the Kraken will be dead.

Upping the Ante
Kill the Kraken using a Relic in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

In order to equip Relics, you will need to prestige at least once in Extinction Mode. You will gain an additional Relic slot every time you prestige, but this trophy only requires you to have one Relic active. You can choose which Relic you want to equip in the Loadout Menu, before a game begins. It does not matter which Relic you choose to use but there are a few that stand out, and as long as you are playing with other characters it won't impact your gameplay too much.

Do Less Damage - You will only do about 2/3 of the damage you would normally do. This Relic is probably the best one to use if you are playing with a group because your teammates will more than make up for your decreased damage output.

Smaller Wallet - You can only carry half the amount of money that you normally would, and you earn 25% less cash from all sources.

Mortal - You have no class and none of the bonuses that come with classes. You're just a regular dude. Again, having other players around will make having this relic just a small inconvenience.

Mayday Completionist
Complete all Challenges and kill the Kraken in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

No doubt the hardest trophy to earn in this DLC. A challenge is presented to you each time you begin to destroy a hive in Extinction. You will earn a skill point for each challenge you complete before the hive is destroyed. In order to unlock this trophy, you will need to complete every challenge that you come across and then go on to defeat the Kraken. It will take a coordinated group of players to complete all challenges and if that's not possible then you may want to try going for this trophy solo. If you played the default Extinction map at all then you will be very familiar with challenges and how to complete them. The challenges in this DLC are mostly the same.

There is one unique challenge exclusive to this DLC that you should be aware of. It will be presented to you during your fight with the Tentacle. "Defeat the tentacle before the hive is destroyed" is self-explanatory and pretty easy to accomplish. Focus your fire on the end of the tentacle and keep shooting until it retreats.

Inquisitive Mind
Find all of the Intel in Mayday.

The hidden intel in "Mayday" can be put into three categories: Cutscenes, Encrypted Intel, and Classified Intel.

Cutscenes - All you have to do is complete "Mayday" to unlock all cutscenes.

Classified Intel - These are randomly found in search boxes. Look all around the level for these search boxes and press to open them. If an intel was inside, it will now be on the ground. Press to pick it up. The intel looks like a smartphone. If you are playing with other players, only the player that picks up the intel will get credit for picking it up. There are 4 Classified Intel that you need to find.

Encrypted Intel - They look like laptops and are found in specific places. There are 5 encrypted intel: 1 can be found in the starting area, 2 can be found in the Cargo Area, 1 can be found on the Top Deck, and the final intel is located in the final area where you fight the Kraken.

Kill 15 Seeder Turrets in one game in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

The Seeder is a new cryptid that makes its first appearance in "Mayday." Like the Scorpion, the Seeder shoots out an acidic liquid that will damage you. The Seeder also shares a couple of traits with the Seeker. Upon death, the Seeder will explode and spew acid in a large radius. It also closely resembles the Seeker.

The Seeder does have an additional ability and it is unique. Occasionally the Seeder will shoot out a larva that will quickly grow into a Seeder Turret. The Seeder Turret can stick to any hard surface and will begin to shoot at you once it is fully grown. To unlock this trophy you need to destroy 15 Seeder Turrets in a single game. 15 Seeder Turrets is not that many and you will most likely get this trophy naturally. But if you prefer to get it out of the way early, during the early hives you can avoid killing the Seeders and allow them to make a few Seeder Turrets each.

Big Game Trapper
Use a hypno trap to turn a Rhino friendly in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

After defeating the Kraken Tentacle, head up the stairs and go to the red tool chest. There will be two schematics on the top of the chest - you want to pick up the "Hypno Trap schematics." Once you have the schematics, look around for red toolboxes and open them in order to collect the three parts needed to build a hypno trap. But don't build the trap yet!

Continue playing through the map until you encounter a Rhino. There are few ways you can go about trapping the Rhino, but probably the easiest way it to just let the Rhino charge at you. Once he is in your face, quickly press and then press to craft and drop the hypno trap. Once the Rhino touches the trap, it will become friendly and the trophy will unlock. Each hypno trap will convert two cryptids so make sure no other enemies hit it before the Rhino.

Egg-stra Devastation!
Complete the Egg-Stra XP challenge and then destroy a hive in the Devastation DLC package.

Each new multiplayer map in this DLC contains a hidden alien hive. You need to find and shoot all four of these hives to complete the Egg-Stra XP challenge. This challenge must be completed in public matches. A prompt will appear at the top-left of your screen the moment you shoot each hive. After you have shot all four hives, enter Extinction Mode and destroy one hive. You do not have to be the one to plant the drill - you just have to be present for the hive's destruction.

Ruins - From the center of the map, head directly East. Once you can no longer move forward, look South. There is a tower off the map and the hive is stuck under the roof.

Collision - Get onto the main deck of the ship and run to the starboard side. Face the bridge and look at the nearest pillar. The hive is at the base of this pillar just above the water.

Unearthed - Find the building with the huge rock in the middle of it. Stand next to the rock and look over the edge, under the rock. The hive will be attached to the wall.

Behemoth - Head to the top-left corner of the map and go to the ledge with the yellow railing. Now look straight down and the hive will be stuck on the of the structural beams.

After destroying all four hives, start an Extinction session and destroy one hive on "Mayday." The trophy will unlock after that.

The Architect
Successfully build all of the Schematics in Mayday in Regular or Hardcore difficulty.

For this trophy you will have to craft every schematic found in "Mayday." A couple schematics have a few variants and these are also required for this trophy. This does not have to be done in a single game. You will find schematics on red tool chests and the parts needed inside red toolboxes. Look around the map for these toolboxes - some are behind optional doors and you will need the drill to get through them.

Schematics Locations
Sticky Flare
- At the beginning, go up the stairs on the right side and you will find this schematic on the red tool chest.

Pipe Bomb - Next to the Sticky Flare schematic.

Tesla Trap - After you defeat the Kraken's Tentacle, go up the stairs and it will be right in front of you. *Note*in the case of the Tesla Trap and its variants, you need to craft and deploy the trap in order for it to count.

Hypno Trap - Next to the Tesla Trap schematic.

Venom-X - When you enter the Cargo Bay, turn left and you will see a room with a door you can destroy. Plant the drill and when you are inside you will find the schematic on the red tool chest.

Once you pick up a schematic, you will find ingredients for only that schematic in red toolboxes. The sticky flare, pipe bomb, and hypno trap do not have variants so once you pick up the schematic and collect three ingredients you will be able to craft it.

The Tesla Trap has three variants and the Venom-X has four variants. The deciding factor for which variant you will craft is the third ingredient you acquire from red toolboxes.

When crafting the Tesla Trap and Venom-X, keep track of which variant you have yet to make. The third ingredient is random so it is possible to find repeat third ingredients from red toolboxes. If this happens, DO NOT pick up the ingredient and instead move along to another toolbox.

Tesla Trap Variants' Third Ingredient
Basic Tesla Cell Battery
Medium Tesla Liquid Battery
Advanced Tesla Nucleic Battery

Venom-X Variants' Third Ingredient
Venom-X Biolum
Venom-FX Orange Biolum
Venom-LX Blue Biolum
Venom-SX Amethyst Biolum
