At first glance, the trophy list for Capcom’s sci-fi dino shooter doesn’t seem all that daunting. Indeed, there are some easy challenges to complete, but some, unsurprisingly, pop from just playing the game. However, there are some deviously difficult ones, and you may be wondering how to get the Exoprimal platinum trophy.
How to Get the Exoprimal Platinum Trophy
Whether you’re playing on PS4 or PS5, our guide outlines tips and strategies for getting the hardest trophies in the game to help you in your journey to the Exoprimal platinum trophy. These were the ones that not only gave me the hardest time, but also those that many in the community have had trouble with, too. They include:
- A New Tyrant
- Cretaceous Eradicator
- No Exosuit? No Problem
- Ace Pilot
- Shield Slayer
- Threat Level Rising
I admit that getting the Exoprimal platinum isn’t as daunting as popping the one for Devil May Cry 5, for example, it’s still quite a grind. The Triceratops and T-Rex boss fights aren’t easy, nor will you defeat 100,000 dinosaurs quickly.
A New Tyrant
A New Tyrant is a silver trophy that doesn’t mess around. Most of the T-Rex dinos that you encounter in Exoprimal will be Neo T-Rex enemies, but it’s only after Level 40 that you’ll find the nemesis for A New Tyrant. I highly recommend approaching this battle as a 10-player team to have extra firepower and backup. T-Rex’s only weak spot is its head, so try to focus all your damage there.
The most difficult challenge in the game is getting the gold Cretaceous Eradicator trophy, which requires you to kill a total of 100,000 dinosaurs. Even being as efficient and deadly as you can, this trophy can take somewhere between 80 and 120 hours to pop. While you’ll steadily rack up kills as you play through the game normally, make sure you’re regularly changing Exosuits; other trophies require you to get 1,000 kills with Deadeye, Zephyr, Barrage, and Vigilant. Once you have those and have reached Level 30, I highly recommend switching over to the Murasame Exosuit (5,000 BikCoin) because it has the best balance of offense and defense, making this trophy much easier (if still grindy).
No Exosuit? No Problem
No Exosuit? No Problem is a secret bronze trophy, but don’t let its lowly grade fool you. This one can be tricky. To pop it, you’ll need to kill at least 20 dinos of any kind while staying out of your exosuit in a single match. Here’s how to do it:
- Press the “Back” button to open the menu and change your Exosuit.
- Select any other Exosuit than the one you’re currently piloting.
- Press “Confirm,” and your pilot will jump out of the current Exosuit.
- Initiate a Cull Mission, and stay at the back of the combat area.
- Let your teammates get in front of you to protect you and aggro dinos.
- Shoot dinosaurs as your teammates damage them to get quick kills.
Ace Pilot is another gold trophy that’s hard to get. You’ll need to reach Level 10 with 10 different Exosuits, which can be a serious grind. I’d focus on completing as many story missions as possible since they grant the most XP, but simply winning games can also be quite effective. Make sure to pay attention to multipliers and choose the random option in matchmaking to get a larger, unique multiplier. Likewise, stay in one suit until it’s been fully leveled. You’ll also get A Sample of Suits for trying out at least 10 Exosuits.
Shield Slayer is another difficult bronze trophy. Here you need to defeat a Triceratops, which appears in the “Dino Survival” mode during the first round. In one of the waves of Raptors, the Triceratops will emerge as the boss. Its weakest spot is the horns, so get your team to deal as much damage there as you can. Another good spot to focus on is the belly, but the Triceratops protects it well. I suggest using Vigilant’s Frost Lock ability because it forces it to reveal the belly. An alternative is shooting its ankles to make it roll over.
Threat Level Rising
Yet another Bronze, Threat Level Rising is rather nebulous, telling you to “experience a dinosaur upgrade for the first time.” But what does that mean? To get it, you’ll need to encounter the Trigger Neosaur, which only emerges for the losing team, though both teams get the trophy once it’s killed.
The losing team needs to be at least 2-3 objectives behind the winning team for the Trigger Neosaur to spawn. Once this dino appears, Leviathan will announce it, and the screen have a gold tint, so you can’t miss it. The gold dino will appear as a gold dot on the map. Trigger Neosaur isn’t too hard to kill, either, as it behaves almost exactly like the Gas Neosaur or Sniper Neosaur. Once defeated, it will boost the power of the dinos fighting the enemy team, granting somewhat of a leg-up for the losing team.
