MotoGP 09/10 is a really fun motorbike racing simulation game that gives players access to fully licensed bikes and riders from the MotoGP itself. It will prove to be quite difficult for first time players of the series or motorbike racing games in general but it is a very enjoyable game for those who stick to it and master the handling.
I have set the estimated time to platinum at 20-30 hours. Every championship you will play will likely take between 1 and half to 2 and a half hours to complete. Plus winning 69 races online will still take a while even with a boosting partner. You will have to win a minimum of 6 championships through the course of the game throughout the modes on your way to platinum. As it stands there are no reports of any glitched trophies but “Champagne!” can be very troublesome because of a very temperamental and fragile online mode, but it is by no means glitched.
I recommend your first step to be to go for the Championship mode trophy. Although there is only one trophy to collect in this mode “They made me do it” which requires you to complete a full championship mode season it is a perfect mode to hone your skills. Its only necessary to complete this season so you can use it to fully get to grips with the handling and other elements of the game for example, the racing line gates at most corners which could be a bit strange for first time players.
Arcade mode is a very exciting mode and is a good breakaway from the typical races. You are under a timer for the whole race which is filled up by being rewarded for good racing ie. racing clean sections, running through the three racing line gates at most corners and overtaking opponents, etc. There are lots of ways to replenish your timer and you will have to adjust your racing style if you want to prosper in the arcade mode season. The main trophy you will be aiming for is “1UP”. During the season the extra time you have earned will be added to the next races total so by the end of the season you will have loads of time and will not have to use a continue. Another Arcade mode trophy worthwhile noting is “Draghter”. This trophy will be very difficult to get through normal play and getting the trophies so you will have to do a few races of just straight slipstreaming to clock up the minutes.
The career mode in this game is structured around the reputation system. You gain reputation for winning races and earning bonuses racing well. The bonuses you earn across the races, practice and qualifying sessions all add up once you return to the pits and overall ratings are put towards the main reputation bar at the end of the race event. There are trophies for becoming level 1, 10, 20 and 30 with level 30 being the top rank earning “The G.O.A.T” at the end of it.
You start on the bottom class racing with 125cc bikes. If you gain enough reputation throughout the course of that season then you will be offered to ride for a 250cc manufacturer. You get offered a 250cc bike if you are level 9 or higher at the end of the season. If you race well enough, upgrading your bike whenever you can then you will be done with 2500cc if you get to level 18 by the end of that season when some MotoGP manufacturers come knocking. It is possible to race in a particular class as many seasons as you want. The advantage to this is to make sure your bike is fully upgraded to blow away the competition and claim the “Rookie”, “Pro” and “Legend” trophies for winning on each class.
The online in this game is very temperamental with many users reporting drop-outs and simply not being able to join. Some players are not affected by this but others just can’t join a game with more than 6 people. If the problem persists you should think about setting your router up for port forwarding and opening the ports specified in this official Capcom forum post. To set up your online match you will have to scroll over to ‘Multiplayer’ the click on ‘Playstation Network’ and pick whether you want to host or join a game through ‘Create Match’ and ‘Custom Match’ respectively. “Champagne! is by far the hardest online trophy I have attempted so far. It will require a lot of planning and waiting for people to sign up but it is definitely doable if you have the right people with stable connections. You will also need to win 69 races online for “Nicky Hayden” which is very straight forward. The quickest track to race on is ‘Sachsenring’ just make sure both you and your boosting partner vote for the ‘Single Lap’ option before the race starts. Other than those, you need to host a race, “Back to my place…?” and win using the bike and rider you used in career mode, “Owned”. For “Owned” be sure to select “Career” when you are creating your match as you will not be able you use your rider in “Arcade”. Search for your boosting partner in the official trophy boosting thread here.
First off you will want to get the two time trial mode trophies out the way they are “Find Your Own Way” and “Beat the ‘Fun Vampire’”. They are quite easy to get but the lap time at Donnington should be completed using the rider “de Puniet” if you are having trouble as his bike is the fastest. Try to tuck in using whenever you can to gain advantage. “Doppelganger” requires you to complete a race using every rider in the game so it is best to leave this one till the last step as you will not have unlocked some of the riders. This is a very time consuming trophy with 72 riders to race with. Be sure to write down all of the riders before your attempt and make sure you are ticking them off as you go. I know of a few players who forgot who they raced with and had to attempt it more than once so be careful. The rest of the misc trophies are pretty self explanatory and can be done in no time. Thanks for reading my roadmap.
[PS3T Would Like to Thank avfc52 for this Road Map]
|The Ultimate Prize|
|Complete all other Trophies|
Congratulations on your platinum, it’s definitely one to be proud of!
|Your first win.|
This will come naturally on your road to platinum and during your first season so there is no need to try for it. But if you feel like you want to get it out of the way you can choose ‘Single Race’ in championship or arcade mode, pick the fastest rider in your chosen class and win.
|Complete 100 races in any game mode.|
Depending on how well you race in career mode you may get this trophy while still attempting to get “The G.O.A.T” and reach level 30. This trophy is simple enough and there is plenty to do and plenty of races to race on your way to the platinum. For example to get “Doppelganger” you need to complete a race with every rider in the game. There are 72 riders across all classes that you need to ride with. Add that to 5 seasons of 17 races plus wildcards for career mode and you have your trophy. Be warned though, I can confirm this trophy does not include any online races you may complete or have completed.
|Win a 125cc class season in Career mode.|
The first class you start from in career mode is the 125cc class and you will have to work your way up and gain reputation to give you access to better bikes and at the end of the season maybe even get an offer from a 250cc manufacturer.
This trophy will be quite hard from start as your bike is very poor but it is entirely possible to win all of the races with aggressive driving. The good thing is, you can take as many seasons as needed to clinch that 125cc championship so spend time researching and improving your bike to stay ahead of the competition. Whenever you get offered a new bike you should always take it as it will be much better than what you had previously. Even if you had quite a lot of research done on it the new bike will be able to reach a much higher level as far as speed and handling are concerned. You will really start to feel the difference with new bikes during your MotoGP seasons.
|Win a 250cc class season in Career mode.|
Winning reputation in the career mode season is vital to your progression. You do this by completing objectives during the race such as racing clean sections, going through all 3 of the racing line gates on a corner for the perfect racing line bonus, being the fastest rider in a qualifying or practice round, and so on, leveling up will give you access to better bikes during the season and at the end you may get the chance to move up to 250cc. This opportunity comes if you are reputation level 9 or higher as the first 250cc bike will unlock. If you didn’t win the 125cc season previous you can switch to 250cc and come back at the end of the season to try again. Remember that changing bikes will lose the research you have carried out so take that decision carefully.
The 250cc season should not prove to be as challenging as 125cc because by this point you should have a few engineers to help get the most out of your bike early on. When new manufacturers offer you new bikes as your level grows you should always take them. As I explained in “Rookie”, they will be able to reach a much higher level of performance with the research. Always race aggressively by braking as late as possible no matter what the racing line is telling you and try not to follow the racing line to perfection. The racing line must have been drawn out with high powered bikes in mind and with these little 125 and 250cc bikes you feel like you can cut a lot more time off by braking late and taking the corners using the apexes.
|Win a MotoGP class season in Career mode.|
The MotoGP season for me, was where the game started to get really addictive. The bikes are an absolute dream to control and the speed is very nicely portrayed onto your screen. By this point you will have loads of staff working for you so if you want a focus on research, assuming you have 6 staff, you can have 4 working on research and 2 getting the sponsor deals which is what I did. The offer to ride a MotoGP class machine will only come if you are level 18 or higher at the end of the season.
This season will be so much easier than the previous two. That not to say you won’t have to race well it’s just that the bikes are much better to control and it just feel like an all-round better game when you do race in MotoGP. If you’ve won all races in the previous two seasons you should have a lot of money and good sponsors. This removes the need to have more than 1 or 2 press officers so hire engineers to get that research done to get the most from your bike.
|Top of the Class|
|Obtain an 'A' class rating in all three sessions of a race weekend in career mode.|
First and foremost, you will definitely need to get ‘A’ class ratings in all three sessions for every race if you want to gain more reputation and help you get “The G.O.A.T.” as quick as possible to get to level 30. Getting ‘A’ ratings isn’t too challenging but the most important factor if you want A’s in practice and qualifying is being the fastest rider. Now, early on in the career you will find it hard to become the fastest rider so keep trying and researching and soon your bike will be powerful enough to compete in those sessions. Secondary to being the fastest rider is how well you drive i.e. clean sections and perfect racing line. Selecting 'Return to Pits' from the pause menu in a practise or qualifying session will add up your score straight away, even if there is time left so you can use this as an opportunity to change that result with your remaining time. If becoming the fastest rider, getting loads of clean sections and perfect racing lines hasn't drove it up to an ‘A’ then start showboating to score those extra rep points. This will mostly occur towards the end of your career driving for MotoGP as reputation points are given out less.
The last session you need an ‘A’ rating is the actual race. In this session it is easier to accumulate negative rep by having collisions and falling off your bike because of the added pressure of opponents. No matter how well you’ve done in the session the negative rep is taken off after it has added up your points. So if you’ve had an amazing race finished first, completed the dynamic racing objective but had loads of collisions and fell of your bike, there is a chance you may not get that ‘A’ rating so be careful. Points are given for the usual clean sections and perfect racing lines but in the race points will be given for overtaking, completing new laps and finishing the dynamic race objective. Most of all just race well and more often than not as long as you win you will get an ‘A’ rating.
|Hire a full compliment of staff in career mode.|
Once you start your career you will be able to hire staff members consisting of Engineers and Press Officers. The amount of staff you can hire depends on your reputation level. You are given your 8th slot once you reach reputation level 28 so just make sure they’re all filled and then the trophy will soon follow.
|That's A Rep|
|Obtain a reputation level of 1 in career mode.|
This will unlock after you complete your first race in career mode. For “The G.O.A.T” you will have to reach level 30 so there is a lot of grinding to do if you don’t score ‘A’s in at least one session each race. See “The G.O.A.T” for more information on the rep system.
|Obtain a reputation level of 10 in career mode.|
On your way to level 10 the rep bar will still be filling up quite quickly if you’re getting an ‘A’ in at least one round each race. It is definitely possible to win every race in your first season even though your bike isn’t as upgraded as the other riders. The win in the race should be enough to seal an ‘A’ rating in that session if you don't accumulate negative rep. For half of the first 125cc season I wasn't qualifying first I wasn't getting the fastest lap in practice so there wasn't enough to warrant an ‘A’ in those sessions but still climbed up the level quite fast. See “The G.O.A.T” for more information on the rep system.
|Obtain a reputation level of 20 in career mode.|
The road to level 10 goes by pretty quickly as those ‘A’ ratings will be filling up the rep bar rapidly. But once you get past 10 you will notice it going up slower and slower forcing you to need A’s in every session more than ever. By this point though you should still be aiming to complete that MotoGP season or even finishing off that 250cc season if you’re good. So it only starts to get laborious once you aim for “The G.O.A.T”. See “The G.O.A.T” for more information on the rep system.
|Obtain a reputation level of 30 in career mode to become the greatest of all time.|
During your career mode run this is going to be the trophy that you will ultimately be aiming for. It can be a very long trophy if you don’t get the ‘A’ ratings in every session on every race event. For reference, my level 30 run lasted for 4 and a bit seasons and during that I did, 1 150cc, 1 250cc, 2 MotoGP and about 4 races into the 5th season on MotoGP. For about 9 races at the start of the 150cc season I was finishing in 1st but I wasn’t getting the fastest lap in practice or qualifying in pole so that’s 2 ‘C’ grades and an ‘A’ for the race session.
Reputation is given for doing things on the track that would raise your popularity with the fans, media and the sponsors. The more reputation you get the bigger the sponsors offers become. The points are added up every time you return to the pits during a qualifying or practice session and at the end of a race. During practice and qualifying this is a good way to gage how many points you need for an ‘A’ rating or to check whether you own the fastest lap. If you see you need some more points for the top marks or if you just want to make sure you get that ‘A’ for the race here are a few of the common ways to increase reputation:
Racing Clean sections. If you race through a section without making mistakes i.e. going of the track then you will gain reputation for doing so. Sections are marked out by coloured bars either side of the track to mark out the end of that current section and to signal the start of the next. If the bars are green then you will have completed that section cleanly and receive a clean section rep bonus also to the right of the screen is the sector display. If the line is green then it’s a clean section but will turn red if you go off track. This bonus is quite easy to get so just make sure you brake at the right times to stay on the track!
Perfect Racing Line. You will notice on most of the corners there are 3 coloured gates. The first one is red to indicate where to brake the second is white to show when you can ease off the brake and the last is green that is telling you to get back onto the accelerator. Just drive through all of them on the corner to trigger the bonus. It isn’t totally essential that you get every racing line bonus in a race because there are many other ways to claim points but don’t go out of your way or do anything that may cost you the race to get them.
Performing wheelies and endos for the Showboat bonus. Its as easy as it sounds just slow down a little bit, pull back on the left analog stick to pull a wheelie or push it forward when stopping for an endo. This bonus became quite useful to me when I race the fastest lap of the session so far but hadn’t gotten the full ‘A’ rating. I just went back onto the track and rode a lap just pulling wheelies to make sure they gave me top marks.
There are a lot of other worthwhile bonuses like finishing the dynamic object, slipstreaming other riders, overtaking, plus you even get points for starting a new lap in the race. So there are a lot of ways to make sure you get the ‘A’ ratings to help make the road to level 30 shorter. Remember, your home circuit gives you double the reputation so be sure to take full advantage of that.
|Choose your own team leather, helmet, livery design and paint with your own selection of colors.|
When you start your career you are asked to personalize your team by choosing your number, team colours and designs for your leather and bike. Make sure to fully complete the customization and enter every menu pertaining to it otherwise the trophy won’t unlock.
|Boy Done Good|
|Win on your home circuit in Career Mode.|
At the start of your career you are asked to choose which of the tracks you would like to be your home circuit. When choosing your home track bear in mind that racing on your home track gives you a double reputation bonus so you will have to pick a track that you’re good on. I picked Sepang. If you’ve read my other trophy guides you’ll know I love Monza, Sepang is the next best thing with long straights to build up speed and very few tight corners.
|Obtain a full complement of sponsers.|
Much like the “Middle Management” trophy you will have to sign up sponsors to help generate your cash. The amount of sponsors you have is dependent on your reputation level. You will have a full compliment when you have signed up your 8th sponsor for which the slot is given when you reach level 23.
|Fully upgrade a MotoGP class machine in Career Mode.|
The best thing about this game for me is the way you can set engineers to research your bike to help improve it. It was good fun upgrading all of my bikes and really feeling the difference on the track.
Every stage of research requires your engineers to be of a higher skill level than the previous upgrade. For the MotoGP class upgrading one of the aspects for the frame/suspension requires your engineers to be at level 30. The level 30 engineers will only be available once you become level 30 so this will be the last career mode trophy you get, hopefully. You will be offered new manufacturers of MotoGP bikes as you progress and become a higher level. I would recommend not going all out on the research for your bikes until you get offered to race on the Yamaha YZR-M1 which is the best of the bikes and you will be able to squeeze the most out of this once it is fully upgraded.
|Jump through some hoops...|
|Successfully perform every type of dynamic race objective.|
During a race in career mode your race manager will give you an in-race challenge. Achieving these objectives will reward you with quite a bit of reputation. It’s not essential to complete them every single time because you may still fill up your meter without them. You should be wary when going for them because sometimes it can put you off the main race and lose some ground on the opponent or even be overtaken. The types of racing objective are as follows:
-Average Speed. This objective is quite easy because you just have to maintain your speed which is what you should be doing throughout the race. The one thing that has cost me the objective was slowing down too much on the corners. The way you can get around this is by using both the front and back brake before coming to a bend; this will reduce your stopping distance considerably and accelerate loads coming out as early as possible.
-Intimidate. The intimidate objective is one that requires you to be behind a rider which isn’t a position I was used to during my run. Luckily all you have to do is stay close to the highlighted rider to raise his intimidation meter, so this came quite early for me when my bike didn’t have to power to leave the opponents in my dust. Where it got tricky was when the overtake objective came up.
-Overtake. Probably the objective if you don’t like being in any other position but 1st. I remember this appeared early in my career mode run on 125cc but because the bike was slow I didn’t have the power to get past the target rider. This objective selects either a rider that is a few places above you or quite a while away from you and sets you a time that is dependant on how far away the target is. The choice you will have to make is whether you hang back in races to see if that objective comes up and blow past everyone to finish the race first or do you wait until you have every career mode trophy other than this one and attempt it then. I opted for the latter as I thought I didn’t want anything stopping me from coming first in every race I tried. What I did was finish my last trophy (“Egg-Head”), started the next race and just hung back to see if overtake came up. This took me a lot of tries, It came up on my 3rd retry but I messed it up in my excitement. So once it does come up for you stay calm and race like you normally would and eventually you will complete it.
-Racing Line. I personally hate this particular objective because I’m an aggressive racer. This one requires you to stick to the racing line and not stray too far away for too long. Now, for me the racing line is just a guide set out to help new racers to ease into the game and know when to brake and whatnot. But if you’re like me and you feel like you want to lap every rider on the grid every race then this objective will frustrate you. Whether it’s taking it slow around corners so you don’t overshoot the line and fail it or just generally feeling claustrophobic and feeling like you only have a tiny strip of the track to race on it will definitely have you tearing your hair out. The only tip I have for this objective is just to stay steady, the margin for error is small depending on the circuit so keep it simple and you will complete it easily. The opponent will have overtaken you, but you’ll complete it easily.
-Top Speed. A very very simple objective. This one usually pops up when there is a large straight coming up so the only thing left to do is accelerate. Try and speed up as soon as possible when leaving the corner before it to carry your momentum into the first objective marker. During my first season riding in the 125cc class I had this appear for me but I had done no research and couldn’t reach my top speed. If this happens to you, don’t worry as there’ll be plenty of opportunities to complete this one later on.
|Complete over 50 dynamic race objectives.|
You get assigned a dynamic racing objective during every race you do, including the wildcard races. This one is just cumulative and will come over time. I will say this though, if you want to avoid doing extra races even when you have finished with the other career mode trophies, try to complete every racing objective. There are definitely going to be some that aren’t obtainable but just try your best to get them done and out of the way. I raced for five and a bit seasons and this trophy popped half way through the fourth. Try for the objectives, but if you know it’s going to cost you the race then make an intelligent choice on whether to follow it though.
|They Made Me Do It|
|Complete a full season in championship mode.|
This is quite a simple trophy in comparison to some of the ones on this list. Championship mode is just straight forward, classic racing. No worrying about racing lines or reputation all you have to worry about is overtaking the guy in front of you. Which is the reason I suggested you attempt this trophy first in my roadmap. The description says it all really, just complete a season. You don’t even have to win it just use it as a place to get to grips with the handling and seeing those wierd racing line gates on some of the corners.
|Unlock the MotoGP class in any game mode.|
New classes are unlocked once you win a championship with the class below it. So if you start by winning a 125cc Championship mode you will unlock 250cc. Next if you move onto the Arcade mode and win a full season with that then the MotoGP class will unlock followed by this trophy. As long as you’ve won a championship though it doesn’t really matter which mode you’re in whether it’s any of the above, or even career mode.
|Complete a full Arcade mode season without using a continue.|
With a clock counting down while you race as fast as you can, your biggest competitor in this mode is time. Arcade mode is a nice addition to this game providing a new dimension to your racing. To complete an Arcade mode season you need to race in all of the events across a normal season but this time you need to keep the timer going. You refill it by driving well and at the end you may have time to carry over to the next race. Across the arcade mode season your leftover time is added onto your total for the next race. So as the season progresses it gets harder and harder to run down your time and have to use a continue which makes this trophy easier than it seems.
|Spend a total of 10 minutes slipstreaming in Arcade mode.|
Slipstreaming is riding directly behind an opponent which breaks the air current allowing for an overtaking opportunity. This trophy requires you to slipstream for a total of 10 minutes. This is cumulative but is challenging to get through normal playing. To attempt it first start up an Arcade mode race, if you choose ‘Single Race’ this is the perfect time to use some riders in races to help towards the “Doppelganger” trophy. Once on the track try to keep behind the bulk of the riders so you don’t have to be totally precise when you’re aiming for your slips. Keep changing your rider after the race has finished and be sure to write down which riders you have used because you don’t want to do the “Doppelganger” trophy more than once.
|Mirror, Signal, Maneuver|
|Get every type of time bonus within the same lap on Arcade Mode.|
Most of these Arcade mode trophies will come before you’ve even realized you’ve done the requirements. I think it is best to aim for the “1UP” trophy and finish a season without using a continue and whatever trophies you have left just come back and try to follow my tips to achieve them.
The time bonuses will be the only thing stopping you from winning these arcade mode races you will need to earn them to keep the timer going. The ones you will need to earn in one lap are:
None of those are too challenging and are pretty much standard across all of the modes so at some point you will have to earn these.
|Use a continue and then finish first in Arcade Mode.|
To be forced to use a continue you will have to run the timer down to zero and you will grind to a stop. Once you are fully stopped a screen will pop up asking you if you want to use a continue. Probably the most challenging part about this trophy is the running the timer to zero part as there are loads of ways to earn more time.
There are two main ways to approach this trophy, the first being, wait on the start line until it runs out. Then use the continue and win. This is a very difficult way to do it as you opponent will be a while away from you before you can start. The other way is to just race normally, but do not go through the racing line gates on corners, do not slipstream and run off the track on each section until the line turns red. So with that method it is possible that you won’t even drop below 1st when choosing to use the continue.
|Finish a race with more time than you started with in Arcade Mode, without using any continues.|
Like I explained in “Mirror, Signal, Maneuver” there are some trophies that will come even before you know you’ve done the requirements. This is definitely one of them. In the Arcade mode season the winner is the rider who is left with the most time at the end of the season. So it is essential that you accumulate time to help unlock the “1UP” trophy. When you race there are the standard bonuses for example ‘Clean Sections’ and ‘Perfect Racing Line’, plus you get a significant amount of time for completing a lap. At the end of each race you get a time bonus for finishing first, for providing a dramatic finish, and even just for finishing. So there is plenty to aim for and the time bonuses are quite big in relation to the size of the track so this one will be easy as long as you don’t make any silly mistakes.
|Earn more time between timing-out and using a continue in Arcade Mode.|
This trophy can be quite challenging for some but if you time it just right then you will be able to earn more time. The way this trophy works is you need to run the timer right down to zero but when the bike is slowing down, if some other riders pass in front of you, you will earn the slipstream bonus. So run the timer down using the tip I have provided in “Insert Coin” but try to be near an opponent when the timer hits zero and if you positioned it right then you will get a time bonus between timing out and using a continue.
|Find Your Own Way|
|Create a custom racing line in time trial that you then go-on to use in any other game mode.|
The quickest way to do this is to load up a Time Trial on any track but before you cross the start line pause the game. Scroll over to ‘Display Settings’ and change the racing line to ‘Personal’. Next, just lay down a full lap and you should see the racing line change to match the one you just did. If it does then that’s a good sign. Next, go to ‘Championship’ from the main menu and select ‘Single Race’. Make sure you pick the same track you have just laid down the lap on and go to the track during any of the sessions. No sooner than you pass the start line the trophy should pop.
|Beat the 'Fun Vampire'|
|Beat a time of 01:19.78 on Donington in Time-Trial Mode.|
This is a very simple trophy to get but I would recommend waiting until you are fully acquainted with the game before trying it to save frustration. Choose Randy de Puniet as your rider because he has the bike with the biggest top speed. If you need assistance in unlocking this trophy you can download other players top score ghosts from the online leaderboard. You do this by first going to ‘Multiplayer’ then ‘Leaderboards’, ‘MotoGP’, ‘Monthly Ghost’ and scroll over to Donnington. Choose one of the players and hit to download his ghost. You will not be able to download every players ghost but the top times give you a good challenge.
|Win a race with no penalties - all clean sections, no crashes, no collisions.|
I was awarded this trophy during my 69 wins online boosting and I attempted the multiplayer trophies first. Since then there has been many other occasions where this trophy could’ve been awarded to me. The most important thing to remember when attempting this yourself is to stay calm and not make any mistakes. Once you’re out in the front of the pack there is nothing else stopping you getting it except you.
|Panning For Gold|
|Win a race at each track.|
At the start of the game you are given a choice of 17 tracks to race on. Racing on all of those you will find that this trophy will not unlock. That is because in the MotoGP season Laguna Seca makes an appearance. You will have to work your way up to MotoGP class in career mode and sure enough Laguna Sega is added to the race calendar. Win at every track including Laguna and your trophy will unlock.
|Bohemian Unlike You|
|Cross the finish line separately from your bike.|
Another very simple trophy here. All that is needed is to wheelie back off of your bike just before the finish line and watch the bike travel over it. It has to be a race, and it has to be the final lap.
|Win a wet-weather race.|
During your career it is a certainty that you will have to race on a wet day so there is no need to try for this. When the wet weather races come up though, just be sure to win them which is easy seeing as rain has little to no affect on handling.
|Finish a race with each rider in the game.|
This trophy maybe should’ve been silver or gold for the amount of riders you have to race with but hey ho. The trophy is simple enough and requires no further expansion from me but I will say this, make sure you write down and tick off every rider you race with, even double check it’s the rider you think it is once you cross the finish line. With grinding trophies like this the mind can play tricks on you and you will get mixed up. There is nothing worse than racing with 72 riders and not being awarded the trophy at the end of it. Online races do not count towards this trophy I can safely confirm.
|Win 21 races online.|
For this trophy you will have to win 21 races online. To find a boosting partner post a request in the boosting thread here. See “Nicky Hayden” for more information.
|Win 69 races online.|
The multiplayer matching system can be quite temperamental for some see “Champagne!” for tips on how to amend your connection problems. The best track to get the wins on is Sacshenring because it is the shortest and takes less time to complete. Once everybody in your session is ready it goes into a voting screen starting with a vote for the track, then onto the amount of laps of which you should always choose ‘Single Lap’ and lastly for the weather. As always boosting will take considerably less time so if you feel like you want to boost the 69 wins leave a request in the boosting thread here.
|Back to my place...?|
|Host a multiplayer race.|
This is a very simple trophy as you don’t even have to race. Once you create the lobby the trophy will unlock. First go to ‘Multiplayer’ then select ‘Playstation Network’. Next you have a choice between an online career race i.e. using your own career mode bike and racing a straight forward race or an Arcade mode race where you have to earn time bonuses or you will have to use a continue. The trophy will count for either of them. Now, to host a race you will have to click on ‘Create Match’. Once you have selected all your settings and chosen your bike the trophy should soon follow.
|Use your own Career Mode motorbike and rider in a multiplayer race.|
If you haven’t already done so before attempting this you must start the career mode and race the initial wildcard race. After the wildcard race you are presented with customization options for your bike which you must complete before you are given the option of racing with your own bike online. This trophy can be tied in with “Back to my place…?”. So follow the instructions above to create a match but it is important that you select ‘Career’ so you will be given the choice to race with your own career mode bike. The difference for this trophy is you must actually be matched with an opponent and start the race for this trophy to unlock.
|Win a race against a full grid of human riders.|
The hardest trophy in the game. This trophy will take a lot of organizing and a lot of planning. If you do happen to find a 20 player race online, which is very unlikely with the game being out for a while make sure to join it and give yourself a chance of getting the trophy without boosting. If you want to boost it make sure to leave your requests in the Champagne! boosting thread here. Sacshenring is the smallest circuit in the game, on MotoGP I can average around 1:12 a lap with Randy de Puniet.
The online in this game is made so that the user connects straight to the host’s PS3 with no independent servers as the middleman. If you have even the slightest problem with your firewall then you will be removed from the game and put back to the main menu. If the host has even the slightest issue with his firewall then most of the people trying to join will be thrown back to the main menu. It is quite important that when you organize a boost or are participating in one that you first, check whether this happens to you by joining a few on the games already set up online. If it happens even once then you should think about opening and forwarding ports on your router. Here is a link to Capcom’s official forum post which details what ports need to be forwarded. Search for you router on portforward.com and find out how to open the needed ports. If that fails then the only thing left to do as a last resort is to create a ‘Demilitarized Zone’ (DMZ) which will open all of the ports on your router leading to no firewall interference. If you need to do this though make sure you either have good protection on your computer or only have it in a DMZ for the duration of the boost. Here’s a guide on how to set up a DMZ.
|Do a wheelie lasting at least 500 feet on a motorbike.|
You perform wheelies by pulling back on the left analog stick. Keep your front wheel up in the air by reducing the amount of acceleration when you see yourself falling back and increase it if it falls down. To get this trophy set up a race on any mode and pull a wheelie when you’re on the start/finish straight. It’s not totally necessary to land it after the 500 feet but it is best to keep the wheelie going as you have no distance markers. See the video for "Dude, Wheres my bike?" for help.
|Do an endo lasting at least 50 feet on a motorbike.|
Same as the “Niko Wheelie” trophy. Set up a race of your choice in any game mode, Time Trial will be the wisest decision as you will have no other riders to bump into or be bumped into by. To pull an endo push the left analog stick forward when braking using the front brake but once your back wheel is in the air you can ease off to get more distance on the stunt. Try to hold it for more than 50 feet, which isn’t that long really, and the trophy will unlock.
|Dude, Where's My Bike?|
|Come to a standstill over 100 yards away from your bike after a crash.|
Quite an easy trophy once you know how. The best track to attempt this on is Sepang as there are long straight sections to gather speed. First get up a little bit of speed, pull a wheelie whilst doing so and when you feel you’re fast enough fall off and watch the bike ride away from you.
|Ride over 100 miles.|
This is a really easy trophy that will come sooner than you think. There are lots of things to do in this game like the 69 races online, the possible 5 seasons in career mode plus full seasons in Arcade and Championship modes. I wasn’t even a quarter through the game when my trophy popped so it makes you think the could’ve afforded to set this bar a little bit higher.
|Go over 207mph.|
This trophy can be kind of tricky. I don’t think there is a long enough straight or a fast enough bike to do it normally. You will have to do some tweaking on the ‘Configure Bike’ section just before you go out on a lap. First set up a Time Trial race using Randy de Puniet as his bike is the fastest. The track you should use is ‘Mugello’ which has a very long start/ finish straight with a gentle corner before it to gather speed. Once you have loaded up, go to ‘Configure Bike’, ‘Gearbox’ then set the ‘Differential Ratio’ at 0. This will make sure you can climb the gears fast enough to get up to that high speed in time. Next go over to ‘Suspension’ and set the ‘Wheelbase Length’ to 1800mm. Setting the wheelbase length up high will reduce the chance of the bike wheelie-ing while you gain speed and make the bike a lot more stable in a straight line. So now that your bike is set up, go out to the track and ride up to the first corner, turn around and hammer it down the straight using to tuck in and reduce drag. Keep trying this back and forth until you have reached the 207mph. Soon after your trophy will pop.
|Excited isn't the word...|
This is very mysterious trophy. On the XOBX 360 achievement list it gives the full description. Here it is: “Raise the crowd’s excitement level to max in any mode except Splitscreen.” The best mode to do this on is Time Trial as you don’t have to worry about any other riders on the track. Pick any track, I chose Le Mans because it seemed like the start/ finish straight was wider than a few others and just showboat up and down it. Pop wheelies, do endos, keep doing it for a few lengths until the trophy unlocks.
|Finish 10th or better on every race in a season.|
Depending on your difficulty setting, getting into the top 10 riders will be very easy. From my experiences, every rider below 10th are terrible racers with weak machines so you will be able to rush past them with a little tuck using the . Just finish all 17 events 10th or above in any game mode excluding multiplayer for this trophy to unlock. Simple.
|Finish a race within 0.1 second of another rider.|
This is quite an easy trophy to get and it is most likely that you won’t even have to try for it. The first half of my first season in the 125cc class was made up of 0.1 second finishes. Your bike is so weak at that point that you’ll do well to build up a larger gap than that towards the end of the race. The good thing about this trophy is it works both ways it’s not just riders behind you, if you’re pushing for that first spot but you fall marginally short then your frustrations will end by this trophy popping at the end.
