Duke Nukem Forever Achievements and Trophies Guide

Damn, I'm Good 

50 Points
Gold Trophy
Complete the SP campaign on Insane Difficulty

Again, just as it says. While the game can be tough in spots on Easy, you have your work cut out for you on Insane.


Dead Useful 

15 Points
Bronze Trophy
Kill 10 aliens with environmental explosives

For this one you need to kill 10 aliens with explosive items that are found throughout the games environments. You can blow up cars, barrels and propane tanks to get the job done. The best way I found was to grab propane tanks and throw them at groups of enemies to get the job done much quicker.


Downtown Barrel Beatdown 

15 Points
Bronze Trophy
Kill 10 aliens with tossed objects

You can use the same technique as Dead Useful by tossing propane tanks to kill enemies, but you can also use anything else for this achievement. Anything that can be picked up and thrown will kill an enemy, although it may take more than one throw to finish them off for good.



10 Points
Bronze Trophy
Doodle something on the whiteboard in SP

Immediately after the game starts, you will come to a locker room and an EDF soldier will be standing beside a whiteboard. Use it to draw something – you know you're going to draw a penis- and when you step back the achievement/trophy will pop.


Duke Angry, Duke Smash! 

20 Points
Bronze Trophy
Kill 15 aliens with melee attacks while on steroids

When Duke pops his steroid pills, he goes into a rage mode a la DOOM’s berserk mode and one hit kills anything with his fists. The first time you get the pills is during The Duke Cave, and they pop up after you replace all three power cells.  Once you grab the pills, a load of aliens enter the room. Take the pills and you should be able to kill 7 or 8 of them before it wears off. Simply reload the checkpoint which will place you right when the pills appear again and repeat until you get the achievement/trophy.



25 Points
Bronze Trophy
Kill 50 aliens

Easily acquired simply by playing through the campaign.



10 Points
Bronze Trophy
Get knocked down 10 times

There are few enemies that will be able to knock Duke down on his duff, but one such battle has it happen quite a lot. When fighting the Alien Queen, her purple shot that comes from her mouth will knock Duke down without killing him. Let the blast hit and then recover your ego and go for another blast. Repeat until the achievement/trophy pops.


Flagon of Chuckles 

5 Points
Bronze Trophy
Drink a beer in SP

Beer is plentiful throughout the game. Simply grab a cold one and crack it open and enjoy the good times.


Fork the Pork 

10 Points
Bronze Trophy
Kill 6 aliens with the forklift

When you first enter the Forkstop part 2, there will be a forklift on the right. Lower it and take it for a spin. While driving through the hallways, some aliens will appear. Simply run over 6 of them for this reward.


Freeze Well! 

20 Points
Bronze Trophy
Kill 15 frozen aliens

During the level The Shrunk Machine you will get to use the freeze ray for the first time and then enter a room full of enemies immediately after. Concentrate the freeze beam on the aliens until they are iced and then either shatter them with a melee attack or perform an execution on them. Do this 15 times and call it a day.



50 Points
Silver Trophy
Carry the gold pistol through the whole SP campaign

You are given the gold pistol at the start of the game and to get this achievement/trophy, you need to keep it with you throughout the entire game. Be mindful when picking up new guns that you don’t have the pistol selected and watch that you aren’t standing over any weapons on the ground when reloading. If you managed to keep the gun with you the entire game, the achievement/trophy will pop as soon as the credits start rolling.

    I agree with jasoncarter. Why even post this stuff if you hate the game so much? Why even spend the time. Just post a link to gamefaqs and continue to tell everyone not to play it.

    Thanks for this, I've finished the game and some of these are not gonna be fun to cleanup. I've already decided to skip the insane playthrough for if and when something is done about the load times on 360.

    For the love of God shut the hell up about how bad this game is we get it you didn't like it, jasoncarter had it right. by the way my ReCAPTCHA is all

    "When you do there will be a reference to cake – another reason this game needs to die." Even in the guide you have to bash the game. For god sakes already.

    Anybody see the Inception reference in the Strip Club, i thought it was way to subtle to be this game, just tucked away without any one-liners.
