Days Gone Trophy Guide: How to Get All Achievements and Unlock Platinum-1

Unlock all other trophies in Days Gone to earn Platinum.

Gold

Days Done

Complete the story of Days Gone. You unlock this story-related trophy after completing mission ‘’For An Outlaw Biker’’ (final mission).

Best Friends Forever (For Life)

Gain the Allied Trust status with three different encampments. Note: it’s not necessary to do that with all five.

Since Trust leads to better weapons and bike upgrades it is recommended to do the encampment jobs and side activities at the first chance you get. This will bring you to Level 2 Trust with most camps, falling about 10,000 Trust short to Level 3. The remaining Trust is earned by defeating all Hordes in the region.

These are the ways you earn trust:

  • Story missions
  • Encampment jobs (side quests)
  • Side activities (Nero Checkpoints, Infestations, Ambush Camps)
  • Hordes (killing a horde in the region where the camp is)
  • Bounties (giving Freaker Ears to the camp)
  • Camp kitchen (delivering plants and animal meat)
  • Survivors (sending Survivors to the camp)

Infestation Exterminator

In order to unlock this trophy, you have to burn twelve Infestations and eighteen Crier Nests for the Infestation Exterminator questline.

To burn а nest, you can either throw a fuel canister and shoot it or throw a Molotov. The very best choice is to use Incendiary Bolts. The best option is to burn out the nests at day because fewer Freakers will be roaming around.

When you get closer to a nest, Deacon will smell it and it automatically gets marked on the map. You can also locate them from far away by black infected mass around them. Be ready when you burn the nest as freakers will start running out of it. Killing them is optional. The main task consists of burning nests nothing else. Here are the numbers of infestation nests in each region:

  • 6 nests in Logging camp. Cascade region.
  • 3 nests in Pioneer Cemetery camp. Cascade region.
  • 4 nests in Crazy Willie’s. Belknap region.
  • 5 nests in Marion Forks. Belknap region.
  • 3 nests in Patjens Lakes. Belknap region.
  • 3 nests in Sheman’s Camp. Lost Lake region.
  • 6 nests in Rouge Camp. Lost Lake region.
  • 4 nests in Berley Lake. Lost Lake region.
  • 3 nests in Tumblebug River. Crater Lake region.
  • 3 nests in Rimview Ranch. Crater Lake region.
  • 5 nests in Cascade Lakes Rail Line. Highway 97 region.
  • 6 nests in Chemult College. Highway 97 region.

After completing these, you will be at 92% progress. For 100%, you have to find Crier Nests at 18 different locations. These Nests are all on trees and power poles, sometimes with up to five in the same location. Use Incendiary Bolts to burn them. When finished, you will get the message “Nest Destroyed” and the marker will disappear from the map.
