How to get 40 Trophies in 60 minutes

Midnight Club: Los Angeles
Time: 45-50  minutes | Number of Trophies: 2 | Trophy count: 34

Now that we’ve ditched those disturbing time-bending cats, it’s on to gently patronising Trophies that reward you for following tutorial instructions. Just a quick tip for the race editor: you can place start and finishing points anywhere and still bag a mug, even if your route’s only a few feet.

The Basics – Bronze: Nothing to prepare you for hours of illegal street racing with a massively tame tutorial in the first few minutes, eh? Finish it for the Trophy.

Saving Los Angeles – Bronze: Get creative… well, not really. Go to the race editor and enter two checkpoints into the map. Save that track and you’ve now got one horribly dull route and a shiny new Trophy. 

Time: 50-60 minutes | Number of Trophies: 6 | Trophy count: 40

Nothing like Sackboy to sign off this Trophy hunt. We’re almost at the end now, so time is tight – no messing about making Sackboy smile or needless bubble chasing. Your reward for an hour’s work? A handsome collection of Trophies and a shiny new semi-debilitating obsession.

Artist – Bronze: What better way to end this tiring and stressful Trophy haul than the world’s happiest game? Complete the first stage where you receive stickers and plant one anywhere to win the Trophy.

Homemaker – Bronze: Pimp out that adorable pod with ten stickers to receive this Trophy. Just pick one and decorate the whole place with it. As simple as it gets.

Fashion Sense – Bronze: Saddle Sackboy with some respectable threads. Choose a costume with at least one head item, one body item and a material of some sort.

Friendly – Bronze: Either get a mate to play through a level offline together, or invite a friend to play online to receive your prize.

Trendsetter – Bronze: Not only can you slap stickers on your pod and around levels but you can also pop one on yours or a friend’s Sackperson.

2X Multiplier! – Bronze: The easiest way to earn this multiplier is in the first level after the tutorial. There are five tokens lined up in a row beneath one of the first statues. Collect them all in one run to end this epic and speedy Trophy hunt.

Well done!
That's it. 40 trophies in an hour – provided you, er, exclude all the disc swapping, mistakes and popping to the shops to splurge a few hundred bucks on games.

    There is an easy trophy article with different games in the new issue of PTOM. And it actually deters the whores from wasting their time with games such as Burnout and Wipeout.

    Hey quick question if u already have a lot of in-game trophies in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune will those transfer into PS3 trophies?
  • SkullSplitter - December 27, 2008 11:12 a.m.

    @ VinilSliding Hahaha not even close :P There are a lot of other easy trophies to get in LBP by playing some of the trophy whore levels. Incedible speed, Incredible hight, high score and so on. It takes just a few more minutes.

    Actually I'm sure he isn't jealous... the "Ferst!!11lolol" posters would be automatically moderated if they tried that shit on any other site. Since reporting them doesn't seem to work, it's just easier to ignore these morons and move on.
  • Ell223 - December 26, 2008 7:53 p.m.

    you're just jealous cos he got first i know i am
  • izekial27 - January 7, 2009 9:23 p.m.

    A informative but misleading story, should have called it "how to get 40 trophies in 175 minutes" because to get all listed trophies within the minimum times you suggest, thats how long it would take.
  • Gunslinger - January 2, 2009 9:40 p.m.

    Wow, so now we're gunna get the phrase "Tropy Whore"... That's good, I think, because bored middle-aged men NEED a Trophy Whore, so that they can be seen as cheating on their Trophy Wife.
  • Thequestion 121 - December 29, 2008 8:22 p.m.

    That was cool. A good way to get easy trophies is to just play and beat Mirror's Edge. That was fun.

    @ soccernaruto57 thanks that was confusing the heck out of me.
  • soccernaruto57 - December 29, 2008 4:54 a.m.

    @ kered no you have to start all over. Yea I know its stupid. Thanks for the article even though i kind of knew some.
  • DasavageJ - December 27, 2008 9:57 p.m.

    Thanks for the article, I knew about the Warhawk ones but the WipeOut ones were very helpful, i.e. "Smile Please".
  • therat - December 27, 2008 11:09 a.m.

    Sorry but you're about 12 hours too late, sorry vinylsiding.

    nice article GR! P.S. listen to talkradar!

    @ jimmeroo Wow, you must feel so proud. You left a comment without actually commenting on the article. I guess your life is complete and you can die happy now, right? Seriously, can Gamesradar do something about these jackasses? Anyway... Nice handy dandy guide for all the whores out there. Although, you could add about 6 more to the Burnout Paradise section, for crashing through 10 gates, 3 billboards, 180º flatspin, a barrelroll, visit a paint shop, get on a motorcycle and set the day/night cycle to 2 minutes.
