The Outlast: Whistleblower DLC Trophy Guide by ChrisValentine

The Official 100% Difficulty Discussion Thread Here

[top]Tips and Strategies

For the most part, the game is pretty straight forward. Pay attention to the way you've come and any possible escape routes.

Always be on the look out for batteries, as they could save your life.
You can use your camera as often as you like, as it's only the Night Vision that drains your battery.

Lockers are good places to hide, as usually the enemies will look in the lockers near you, but not in the one that you're hiding in.

Running and hiding is your best friend, become properly acquainted!


Step 1.
Enjoy the game! Play through on the easiest difficulty "Normal", and concentrate on getting all of the Collectables. The Collectables sadly, all need to be collected in one playthrough. So bare this in mind.
Learn the game and pay attention to any sections where you die, or where you think could cause you problems on "Insane".
Once you've completed this playthrough and have got all of the Collectables, you will have every trophy except; Lunatic

Step 2. (Optional)
This is a purely optional playthrough on the "Nightmare" difficulty. Playing this difficulty will give you a sense of what "Insane" is going to be like, except on this difficulty, if you die, you can restart at the checkpoints and save your game.

Step 3.
Now, put on your "Big Boy Pants". You've now got to complete the game on "Insane". For more information on this difficulty, read the Lunatic Trophy.
Complete this and you'll have got yourself a 100% Complete PS4 Game


Restore power to the Administrative Block

For this trophy, you have to turn back on the power.

In the Basement, you’ll see a Generator, but before you can turn it on, you need to turn on both Pumps and the Breaker.
The two Pumps are in both accessible rooms. But beware that once you turn on one, a crazy guy will burst through the previously locked door.
So you can either run and try to get the other Pump on before he gets into the main room, or hide and wait for him to come to you, then wait until he starts looking elsewhere for you, for you to make your dash to the second Pump.

Once both are on, head through the door that he broke down and follow it to the Electric Room. As soon as you pull the Breaker, the crazy guy will again come looking for you, so hide until he loses interest and slowly follow him out.
Back in the main room, you can now put on the Generator and get your first trophy!

Drain the Sewers

For this trophy, you need to drain the water levels in the Sewer section, so that you can climb down the ladder.

As you get to the first big open area, you’ll see the ladder going down into the water on your right, and opposite that, a blueprint of the drainage pipes.

First off, run ahead and take the first right. Follow the corridor (pay attention to a small grated area on your left, just before following the corridor right). You’ll end up in a room with a valve. Turn it, and quickly run part way back, till you get to the small grate on the floor. Hide in that corner and wait for the big man to walk past you.

Once he’s passed, sprint back into the main room and take the tunnel opposite. Crawl through the small tunnel, then through the gap in the wall and you’ll find the second room with another Valve.

Turn it and your second trophy will pop!

Activate the sprinklers in the Male Ward

Go through the burning Cafeteria and squeeze through the gap in the corridor. The first room on the right has the switch to turn on the Sprinkler, but first you need to turn on the two Valves.

First, beware that that Big Guy is back… It’s still just a game of cat & mouse. Lead him to the other side of where you want to be, then run around objects etc, and get to the Valves.

At the sign for Baths and Laundry, turn right and right again. The Laundry Room is on your, erm... right. Make your way through the Laundry Room and you’ll come to a slightly ajar door with the next Valve.

Head back the way that you came, but this time go right through the central glass area and left towards Baths. You’ll come to a gap that you need to squeeze through. You’ll then find yourself in the Bathing area, with the Valve at the far end.

Turn the Valve and come back the way you went. Go back through the glass room again and back to the room with the Sprinkler Switch.

Trophy number 3!

Collect the key in the Female Ward

After once again seeing Father Martin, he’ll tell you that you’re nearly there.
Follow the corridor around and you’ll come to a room with a Fuse Box. You need three Fuses to activate the Laundry Chute.

So first off, jump through the other window, as opposed to the door. Follow the corridor and you’ll come to a room with a corpse hanging from an upside-down crucifix. Next to him glowing, is your first fuse.

Now head back the way you came, to the Fuse Room, but this time go through the door. Beware that there will be a crazy guy running around this way.
Follow the corridor and you’ll come to a guy in a wheelchair. From here, go right and you'll come to a room with another Fuse. Now go back and run past the guy in the wheelchair. You'll come to a door, in this room is another enemy, so quickly grab the fuse from next to him and run back to the Fuse Room.

Once inserting all three Fuses, press the Switch for the Chute. The key will drop down into the Laundry Room. So head back down the stairs, making sure you clear the hole in the floor. Then follow the corridors back to the Laundry Room. You’ll come across the bottom of the Chute with the key inside.

As soon as you pick up the key… Trophy!

Collect 15 documents and complete 15 recordings

Please refer to Pulitzer below.

Finish the game

The last Chapter, you'll find yourself in the Labs under the Asylum.
For the most part, this part is very straight forward and linear, although you will have to do quite a bit of running.
When you finally get to Billy Hope, take the door to your right and follow the story path and you'll end up in the Life Support Room. Turn the Valve in here, then sprint back to Billy Hope's bubble. Run straight past him and head up the stairs on the far side of the room.

Again, follow the corridors and vast amount of stairs, until you reach the room where you have to pull out the cables.
On the way back, you can shortcut and go through a gas shower.

Once you've composed yourself again, hit the Kill Switch on the centre terminal and watch the cutscene.

Get yourself off the floor and head for the exit and...

Collect all documents and complete all recordings

Credit for all videos as always goes to PowerPyx

For this trophy, you need to collect all the Documents and Notes (Recordings). There are 31 of each, so a total of 62 Collectables. You need to collect them all in one playthrough, so if you miss any, you CANNOT use Chapter Select to retrieve missed ones.
I suggest walking around the whole game with your camera out, as there's less chance of you missing anything. For the most part, most conversation or scenes where you think will be a Note, will be.

Chapter 1: Administration Block

After your erm… “consultation”, head back into the big room and over to the patient that’s strapped to a bed. Listen to him talk crap for a minute and he’ll tell you that the Doctor is coming back.

Finish the game in Insane mode

"Insane" difficulty is the same as "Nightmare", but without the ability to restart from checkpoints or save the game... So if you die, that's it... You'll need to start from the beginning, again and again and again until you've ran out of clean underwear.

On Insane, you'll be killed a lot easier. Main "Bosses" will kill you in one hit, and normal enemies will have you dead, in just two.

To notch up the difficulty again, you'll only be able to carry two spare batteries, and there's significantly less battery spawn points. If you did the optional playthrough on Nightmare, then remember where the batteries are, as they'll be in the same place.
So take great care when using Night Vision! I suggest turning up the Gamma on the game, to make the pitch black areas, a bit more visible. Possibly even turn the brightness up on your TV.

Thanks to PowerPyx's video, you can "study" where you need to go. As the enemies will always be in the same place and follow the same route.
One "Saving Grace" of the Insane Mode, is that if... when, you die, you'll have wasted less than an hour.
