Here’s Your MGS4 Trophy List

It’s been a long wait for fans of the stealth-action series but, at last, Metal Gear Solid 4 is getting the trophy treatment next month (for Japan AND other regions).

Bronze You enjoy all the killing, that’s why. Killed many enemies in one area, and vomited.
Bronze Divine Wind Caused a “divine wind” using the Tanegashima.
Bronze Hands Up! Held an enemy soldier at gunpoint and performed a body check.
Bronze Emotion Control Controlled an enemy soldier’s emotions using an Emotive Magazine.
Bronze Hurt me more! Shocked an enemy soldier using Mk. II/III.
Bronze Drum Can Addict Knocked an enemy soldier flying using a Drum Can.
Bronze That Tune Is His Mind Control Music Played Oishii Two-han Seikatsu and made one of the BB Corps dance.

Silver SUNLIGHT! Obtained the Solar Gun.
Silver I Just Don’t Fear Death Caused ALERT status while wearing the Corpse Camo.

Platinum The Legendary Hero Obtained all trophies.

A few in there might be tough to pull off (or will at least require a bit of time) but, for the most part, it looks relatively easy. Even more so when you hold it next to the MGS HD collection.


Hey, at least there aren’t any online trophies. Oh, what, too soon?

If you’re relatively new to the series (or just a bit of avid collector) Konami has confirmed that future retail stock of MGS4 will come with the trophies on-disc.

  1. “Even more so when you hold it next to the MGS HD collection.”
    I dunno, MGS3 Plat seems to be obtainable in a day or two?

    • I suppose you could get it relatively fast (as there are no time related trophies, as long as I can remember) IF you use a trophy guide. Otherwise finding all 64 kerotans should take a lil longer than that… But maybe I’m just horrible at mgs…

    • I would say about 2 days given you have to search every inch of it for camo and kerotans

  2. Those don’t seem so bad. In the press release it said 34 trophies. Take it those are hidden or plot related?

    • [Edit] 14 trophies are hidden?

      • Would seem so. I assume they may be story-related.

        If they’re emblem-related, then yeh, we’re screwed.

  3. MGS3 is easy, just time consuming. MGS2 is in a completely different league for platinum diificulty. Hardest platinum i’ve achieved. What sucks, or is kind of cool, depending how you look at it, alot of people including myself had to do that twice! First on the PS2 and 2nd when the HD collection was released!

    These trophies don’t look so hard, once again, i’ll have to go through the game doing things i’ve already done (like obtain all ipod songs etc) just as I had to do with MGS 2 and 3.

    • I did it twice already with the original SOL and with substance. I’ve yet to do them all on Hd collection as I always struggle on Extreme with Solidus on Arsenal.

  4. So the other 14 must be secret.

  5. & Yes, its definitely too soon *sobs*

    • MG Online was one of the first games I got properly hyped about.

      I still have fond memories, though the crappy Konami log-in BS really took the biscuit (to put it strongly.)

      • I agree. Konami were still learning when they released MGS4, it was 2008 and although games like Halo and CoD had already done well there wasn’t that many great online fps games. I think Konami would have done things differently if the game was beign released say 2010. What bemuses me is that they seemed to do nothing other than release DLC to help people out. They didn’t do away with the Konami ID system and that will always go down as a negative for me. Having said that, the game itself was brilliant. The community stank but it was still a great online game, so many unique game modes that online MGS could produce such as Team Sneaking, Sneaking Mission and Stealth Deathmatch. The customization was another key factor, I found it so detailed and fun. Unlocking reward points was another little fun factor to the game, so you knew people with a red beret weren’t to be messed with. Then we have survival mode, the only gaming competition i’ve actually seen that takes place weekly and is organised by the people that make the game, it was such an awesome game mode and I spent many evenings playing survival. I wish they make a new game and learn from their mistakes.

  6. Peace Walker is a straightforward platinum but time consuming, this looks like it’ll be the same. Most of them are a massive surprise, like the Solar gun one!

    • Peace Walker is straightforward to platinum?? I looked through that list and thought it was mental! Although I haven’t done much online stuff, or managed to get S on many missions….

    • Agree on Peace Walker, took me 92 hours but it was pretty straightforward.

  7. Some of those look potentially time-consuming…STILL haven’t got a single Platinum myself, so maybe I’ll give this a try.

  8. For your information, you only get the Snake Eater iPod song once you’ve collected all Emblems. That includes the Big Boss Emblem.

    • Yup. Isn’t the Patriot only achievable with BBE too?

      • The patriot is obtainable with a password I think…

      • But obv it says u can only the weapons trophy without the passwords…I’m sure I got the patriot on a 2nd play through without using a password…..
        Anyone know any passwords btw, just to check out all the weapons etc before starting a new save?

    • Oh crap I remember reading that in the strategy guide, and u can only get the ‘Big Boss’ iPod song by getting the Big Boss facecamo, which requires getting the Big Boss emblem :-/

      • Looks like Kojima has given us a difficult plat then :/

  9. oh snap. I think I should have all of them… I believe that I need to start a new game though :(

  10. I suck at earning trophies :(
