[top]Tips & Strategies

All copies of the Nathan Drake Collection come with this DLC pre-installed on the disc. You do not need to buy anything off of the PSN store, or redeem any codes.

There's a lot of cross-over, in terms of requirements, between this DLC pack and the main game. I'll be pointing these out in the descriptions below, but for a more comprehensive roadmap, please check the main guide linked above.

Tweak Glitch:
Normally to use Tweaks during a playthrough on a certain difficulty, you must first beat the game legit on that difficulty (i.e. if you want to use Tweaks on Hard, you have to beat the game on Hard first). There is, however, a glitch that you can exploit that will allow you to use Tweaks during a playthrough one difficulty greater than you have completed (i.e. beat the game on Hard, but use Tweaks on Crushing).

For the sake of example, let's say you've beaten the game on Crushing, and you want to make your Brutal playthrough a little easier. Here's how it's done:
  1. Beat the game on Crushing.
  2. Start a new game on Brutal.
  3. Pause your game and change the difficulty back down to Crushing. Press to exit.
  4. At this point a prompt will appear on your screen, telling you that the game is going to restart your checkpoint. Press to ignore it and resume gameplay.
  5. Pause your game again, then go to Bonuses and Tweaks. Enable all the Tweaks you want.
  6. Without exiting the Pause menu, change the difficulty back to Brutal.
  7. Once again, the prompt about restarting the checkpoint will appear. Press to ignore it.


Step 1 - Previously, on Drake's Fortune...
There's a good chance that you've already earned a couple of these trophies in your regular playthrough. If you're reading this in advance to prepare, please note that you can earn the following on your way to Platinum:
  • Supernatural Born Killers
  • Cosplay
  • YOLO Fortunately
  • Follow the Leader
  • Cheater Cheater

Step 2 - Brutal Playthrough
I've put the ETA for this DLC pack at 15 hours, mostly because of this trophy. For skilled players or veterans, this trophy will present a reasonable challenge, but should be conquerable in 8-10 hours; first-timers might be looking at a slightly longer time-to-complete.

Step 3 - Speed-run feat. Doughnuts
The next thing you'll want to do is a Continuous Speed-run, while wearing the Doughnut Drake costume.

Step 4 - Clean-up
Simply mop up any trophies you missed in the previous steps.


Charted! - Brutal
Finish the Game on Brutal Without Changing the Difficulty

Brutal is an all-new difficulty, added to give veterans an extra challenge, and first-time players nightmares. It's unlocked by first beating the game on Crushing.

On Brutal difficulty the amount of damage you do is unaffected, but it will only take one or two hits from any type of weapon to take you down - basically, you should consider this 'realistic' mode. The only advice I can offer you is that you stay in cover as much as possible, and make use of chokepoints by baiting the AI to fight on your terms. If you're having trouble with a certain section, take a break - banging your head against a wall for an hour isn't going to help you.

Supernatural Born Killers
Defeat 5 Descendants With a Sniper Rifle

This trophy can only be acquired during Chapter 19, because it's the only chapter that contains both Descendants and the Dragon Sniper. As you progress through the chapter, you'll eventually run up some stairs to find a bunch of Navarro's men fighting off some Descendants. Right in front of you will be a Descendant or two, and a single soldier - kill the two Descendants, but leave the soldier (he will usually ignore you). Grab the Dragon Sniper next to the crate that he's taking cover behind, and start shooting Descendants. If you run out of ammo, or the soldier starts attacking you, simply restart the checkpoint. Repeat as required.

Alternative Method: you can also earn this trophy by using Tweaks. Simply load up any chapter with Descendants, then give yourself a Dragon Sniper with infinite ammo and get to killing.

Note: this trophy can be earned during your main playthrough for Platinum.

Kill an Enemy While Playing as an Alternate Character Costume Other Than Drake

To earn this trophy you need to kill a single enemy while using an alternate costume that isn't Drake. You have a number of options to choose from, including Sully, Elena, or maybe even Eddy Raja.

Alternate Skins are found in the Bonuses menu.

Note: this trophy can be earned during your Clean-up stage for Platinum.

YOLO Fortunately
Beat the Last Chapter Without Dying on Normal Difficulty or Harder

On Crushing or Brutal this would be nearly impossible, but thankfully you need only do it on Normal. Go to Chapter Select and load up Chapter 22 - Showdown.

There are two main things to focus on during this chapter: Navarro's attack pattern (three quick shots, followed by a fourth delayed shot), and clearing out enemies to progress the encounter. As long as you keep these things in mind, and make good use of cover, earning this trophy shouldn't be a problem.

The Fat and the Furious
Complete a Continuous Speed Run as Doughnut Drake

When you start your Continuous Speed-run (see Need for Speed for more information), pause your game then go to Bonuses, Rewards, and then Skins and activate the Doughnut Drake skin. Complete your Continuous Speed-run using this costume to unlock this trophy.

Note: while you're free to complete the Speed-run in as many sittings as you need, please remember that every time you load your save file, the game will reset your costume, so upon loading in, you'll need to immediately pause your game and re-equip the costume.

Follow the Leader
Compare Statistics with Friends

This can be done at any time. Simply pause your game, go to Bonuses, then Statistics. This will present you with a list of all the stats that the game tracks. Pick any one you want, and press to compare your stats with those of your friends.

Note: this trophy can be earned at any point during your quest for Platinum.

Need for Speed
Achieve a Complete Speed Run Time of Less than 2 Hours and 30 minutes

A Continuous Speed-run is just like an 'Any%' run - you need to complete the whole game within the allotted time. Fortunately, you don't have to do it all in a single sitting. To begin your Speed-run, select New Game from the Main Menu, then choose Continuous Speed Run. As for the difficulty, I recommend Easy, though you're free to attempt it on any difficulty except Explorer.

The best advice I can offer is in regards to combat - knowing the difference between a combat stage that you can skip, and one that you have to clear, can greatly affect your completion time. If you're unsure, err on the side of caution and go for the clearance.

Tips: you can earn The Fat and the Furious at the same time. See the trophy description for more info.

It may only save you a few seconds overall, but performing a combat roll will make climbing up and down stairs a little faster (make sure to do it in the center, though, or you'll hug the wall for cover instead).

Cheater Cheater
Activate a Tweak

Tweaks (aka Cheats) are unlocked by collecting medals, but don't become available to you until you've completed at least one playthrough. Once you've beaten the game, Tweaks will become available for you to use on that same difficulty, and any below, but cannot be used during Speed-runs.

To activate a Tweak, pause your game, go to Bonuses > Rewards > Tweaks, and enable whichever ones you like.

Note: this trophy can be earned during your Clean-up stage for Platinum.
