Savage Moon Trophy List and Guide

Savage Moon is a current favorite around here and pretty much all over the PSN.  The trophies are quite easy to get once you learn some basic strats (I got 100% in about 3 days).  Hopefully this will help.  If you have any questions about specific levels or trophies, just post a comment.   I’ll answer as thoroughly as I can.

 

(Bronze) Xipe Imoon Trophy
Award for exemplary completion of an Imoon nebula. All levels of the nebula must be completed with a minimum score achieved on each to win this award.

Explanation:   This is the first moon, of which there are four levels.  You need to beat each level and get the “Score Bonus” award.   Keys to scoring big is using less towers and having pods and cash left over at the end.  How to do this on each specific level depends upon you finding the spots to put your towers that give them the most range to take monsters down.

(Bronze) Ymir Imoon Trophy
Award for exemplary completion of an Imoon nebula. All levels of the nebula must be completed with a minimum score achieved on each to win this award.

Explanation:  This is the second moon, it also contains four levels.  At first these levels will seem very hard, but the secret to them (and the whole game…) is AMP towers.   These are the first levels you can use AMP towers on.  You first need to research the repair tower and then the ability to research the AMP tower will become available to you.   Find a nice chokepoint in each map where you can build a large number of towers, stick with mostly machine guns, stick an AMP and repair tower in the middle and upgrade everything as much as you can, as quickly as you can, upgrading the amp tower first and foremost.   This will give your machine guns incredible range and power.  Also throw a fully upgraded anti-air tower down near the AMP and it will be able to shoot powerful missiles basically the whole range of the map.

(Bronze) Zeus Imoon Trophy
Award for exemplary completion of an Imoon nebula. All levels of the nebula must be completed with a minimum score achieved on each to win this award.

This is the final moon which contains, you guessed it, four levels.  This is really where you will need to up your strategy.  AMP towers are still a must, but you will also need to use blocking towers to funnel the mobs where you want them to go.   But they will of course attack these, so you need to have guns and repair towers nearby.  If you have a question about a specific level just leave a comment and I’ll play it again and let ya know how it is done.

(Silver) Imoon Conqueror
This is the award for completion of all levels of the three Imoon nebulae.

Explanation:  Fairly straightforward, beat every level.  You don’t need the score bonus to get this trophy.

(Silver) Imoon Artisan
Award for mastery of technology. This is achieved by researching and building all tower types in the game.

Explanation:  Another straight forward one, but be advised you can’t actually complete this trophy until you get to the third and final moon, as all the towers will not be available to you until that point.   But once  they are just start up a level and put some gun/amp batteries up and then just use the money to research and deploy each tower type.  This tactic will make you fail the level most likely, but it works to get the trophy.  You don’t even need to do it in one shot, you can build half the towers on one try, die, restart and build the other towers you haven’t yet and it will unlock this trophy.

 

(Gold) Imoon Admiral
This is the award for completion of all levels of the three Imoon nebulae without any damage to mining operations.

Explanation:  Also pretty self explanatory.  Basically you need to “perfect” every stage.  It’s worth noting that if your mining operations do take damage and you repair it back to 100% that it WILL NOT count as a perfect.  You need to do each stage without any damage taking place.   Once you get the whole Amp/gun nest strat down, it’s not particularly hard.

(Bronze) Imoon Agamemnon Trophy
This is the award for the successful completion of the first level of the Xipe nebula.

Explanation:  Beat the first level and get a trophy.  Easy peezy.

 (Bronze) Imoon Technician Trophy
This award is for the first successful building of a tower upgraded to level 5.

Explanation:  You don’t get the ability to upgrade to level 5 until you reach the third moon.  Once there you need to research upgrades 3+4 and then that will unlock the ability to research upgrade 5.  Do that and then pick a tower and upgrade it to level 5 and blam: trophy.

(Bronze) Imoon-Bane Trophy
Awarded for killing a huge number of Insectocytes.

Explanation:  Im sure there is a specific number that triggers this, but I have no idea what it is.   All I know is that I did a Vengeance Mode map and got this trophy fairly easily.  

(Bronze)  Imoon Survivor
Awarded for surviving for an impressive amount of time in any Vengeance Mode level.

Explanation:  Using the amp/machinegun strat you should be able to do this fairly easily, as that will allow you to last 40 or so waves.  

(Bronze) Command Degree Trophy
Awarded for completing all of the tutorial sections of the game.

Explanation:  The tutorials happen automatically, unless you turn them off.  So don’t turn them off and this trophy will happen naturally as you progress.

(Bronze) Command Credit Trophy
Awarded for earning a significant amount of credits during your levels.

Explanation:  Another one that is easy to get in Vengeance Mode just by surviving for a while.

(Bronze) Command Skill Credit Trophy
Awarded for earning a significant amount of credits during your game using Command Skills.

Explanation:  Go to your command skills menu (opens up near the end of the first moon or the start of the second moon… I forget) and select the increased income tab.   This will get you more money per kill.  Do this during in a Vengeance Mode map that you are pretty decent at and it will unlock.  Not difficult at all.

  2. Okay then.

    How in christ’s name did you beat it.
    I tried every single combination of towers I could, including blocking mazes, brute mortar coverage, and hundreds of machine gun towers.
    I cannot win.
    Its been two weeks.

  3. Have a look here.

    If you cant get the trophy to pop, you could have the same trouble I did. I sent 3 or 4 emails back and forth to Tomas at Fluffy and they couldn’t understand why the tropht refused to show.
    In the end I think I worked it out, I had customised my settings greatly to achieve high scores, Faster curser, turn off CCTV etc in the options menu.
    I reset to default and the trophy poped on the next play through.
    Hope this helps.
