Hi Guys,

I want to share with you a quick way to get the hardest trophy of the game which is "Carver Style" trophy.

Carver Style : Complete the game in Hard or Realistic.

 

First of all finish the game on "Easy" so you can get all trophies except "Carver style".

The game will auosave for each checkpoint. you have 20 missions so you will have 145 saves at the end of the game!! yes That's true!

 

If you load a mission or a checkpoint you can not change the difficulty. To do that , You have to choose 'new' which will delete all your previous saves (yes All!!) and start the game on the new difficulty that you choose on the main menu.

 

knowing that, When i finished the game i saved on Psn+ the 5 last checkpoints (Volcano1 to 5).

 

The reason why i did it was that i was wonderiing why the game should delete the gamesave to start the new one on a new difficulty. my first deduction was because they don't know manage the 2 differentes difficulties at the same time, meanning that the parameter file when it is set to hard or easy read the save no matter what was the initial difficluty.

 

I said ok let's give it a try and if my hypothesis was false ok i play the whole game on hard.

So i've started the game on hard and did 4 chapters.

 

Aterward i copied from PSN+ my own save (last checkpoint Volcano-5 done on "Easy") to my PS3.

i will just mention that it's not cheating but just a glitch of the game that you could exploit.

 

Then load the game and what was my surprise when i've seen the first 4 missions and a 5th one which was 'Volcano'!

 

bingo. so i load that checkpoint. the game has created the first checkoint Volcano-1 , that's normal.i quit and load again but this time the Volcano-5 which is the last checkpoint.

 

All i had to do was just to throw some grenades and rocket to kill the remaining soldiers and go to the last room and kill the final boss with my last grenade and ding 'Carver Style' + Ding... Platinum !

 

If this could help some of you that's fine (i think it will be patched Quickly, lol)

they can patch it but since its an offline game you dont need to install a patch.

Great sharing of this exploit  :thumbsup

Thanks for this tip/glitch! This will definitely speed it up and make the platinum easier/quicker.

Are these save files locked? So could somebody without PS+ copy these to a USB to make this work rather than the cloud?

So you'd have to wait a day to do this glitch?

Depends on the size of the file

The smaller ones you typically can re download immediatly, the large ones make you wait the 24 hours

So that means that you have to have PS+ to do the glitch and you only need to copy volcano level files over once, to PS+ then copy them back after you start on hard right?

This glitch makes absolutely no sense to me, but sounds interesting.

It's kind of like the glitch in Wanted where the game incorrectly reads your save file and allows you to skip far ahead to the last chapter

To blazikiller :

Yes you are right but you should at least make one checkpoint or one mission on hard  (i did 4 missions on hard but that's up to you) so that the game see that you are on Hard difficulty (parameter file).

then quit and copy your file from psn+ and load the checkpoint Volcano-5 and finish the mission.

I can confirm that this works!! :D

 

Before you start a new game on hard, copy the last save file (VOLCANO-5) to PS+.

Then delete all the save files yourself. Otherwise you'll have to sit and wait like 10-15 mins until your PS3

has deleted them one by one. :confused

 

Start a new game on hard and play until you reach the first savepoint. Quit the game.

Download save VOLCANO-5 from PS+ (after 24 fuckin hours) and start the game.

Hit continue and you're on the last checkpoint. Kill the guys waiting outside, then finish the last guy. :D

Easy Peasy.

 

Thanks for this great workaround Rick. :thumbsup

What would you say this puts the difficulty for platinum at? As well as the time to complete besides the 24 hour wait.

I'd say it's 2/10 then. I'm sure the campaign can be completed in a day or two as the missions are not that long. :)

I would say 8h max, i did it in 10 but with a couple of mistake so that i did some chapters again for no dying trophies.
I don't talk about the 24h of wait for psn+
