nail’d Trophy Guide. Difficulty: *** An arcade-style racing game featuring ATV and dirt bikes across various off-road tracks. While the offline trophies are doable with enough time and grinding, the online are challenging without boosting.
nail'd is an arcade-style racing game that features ATV and dirt bikes. Players race across various off-road tracks which include the mountainside of Yesemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, and around redwood trees, while performing stunts and competing in either single-player or online multiplayer with up to twelve players. The game features a soundtrack with such bands as Queens of the Stone Age and Rise Against.
nail'd received widely mixed reviews, with an average score of 61%, praised by some for the game's handling and physics, as well as its variety of tracks, though criticized by others for its lack in presentation and graphics.
This is a high 3-star rating, mainly due to the nine online trophies which are quite difficult to obtain legitimately not only due to what's involved, but for the lack of online players. The Heart Of A Champion trophy in particular, requires you to win an online race with five other players of higher class, a difficult trophy even to boost unless you find five players that meet this criteria. The offline trophies are also challenging, but doable with enough time and grinding.
Expect roughly 60 hours for the Platinum with boosting, and far more if you're going for the online trophies legitimately.
Before we begin, it should be noted that the online trophy, Heart Of A Champion, requires you to win a race against five other players who are of higher rank. If you complete the single-player Tournament mode, your rank will automatically increase, thereby making this trophy even harder to obtain. One method around this is, if you are a PlayStation Plus member, play through the game as normal, then save your game to the online storage and delete the save off your hard drive. After you've managed to acquire the trophy, re-download your save. Otherwise, you may wish to get this trophy out of the way in the beginning.
When you're ready to start the single player, head into Tournament mode and work your way through, earning gold medals in every event for the Golden Guy trophy. This can be done on Easy mode. You will also need to win every stunt and timed event in order to collect each of the Native-related trophies. It should be noted that the game does not keep track of which events you won, so either make sure to win each one along the way, or track your loses on your own if you wish to return to them later.
After that, you can move onto Time Attack mode. There are a number of trophies related to beating the best times of the developers for all the 14 tracks.
Finally, mop-up any miscellaneous offline trophies you may still be missing. Be sure to check out the nail'd trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need and their requirements.
With the exception of the Heart Of A Champion trophy, you can work on the online trophies at any time. Some will require more than one other player, such as The Great Battle Of Our Time trophy for winning an online match while being smashed twice as well as smashing two other opponents. Other trophies may simply be a grind even with boosting, such as the A True Winner trophy for winning 100 online races, or challenging even while boosting, such as the Not A Scratch trophy for winning five online events in a row without crashing. Check out the boosting forums under our Links tab to help search for other online players.
