Achievements and trophies in Darksiders Genesis Darksiders Genesis guide, tips

On this page you will find a trophy guide for Darksiders Genesis. It collects all available achievements and advices you what to do to unlock them. Achievements are unlocked by, for example, fighting bosses, collecting coins and beating the game on various difficulty levels. With our advice, you will obtain 100% achievements and you will unlock the platinum trophy on PS4.

Important information about Darksiders Genesis trophies

  1. In Darksiders 3, there are 31 trophies to unlock - 1 platinum trophy (only in PlayStation 4 version), 6 gold trophies, 10 silver trophies, and 14 bronze trophies.
  2. You can unlock trophies and achievements on PC, PS4, and XOne. In the PC version of the game, the achievements are available only on Steam. At the time when this guide was created, the Epic Games Store wasn't supporting achievements. You can't obtain achievements in the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
  3. In order to obtain the platinum trophy, you must complete the game at least twice. This happens because the highest difficulty level, Apocalyptic, becomes available once you complete the game on any of the lower difficulties.
  4. Some trophies can be missed by, for example, not performing a specific action in a specific location. We recommend you read descriptions of all trophies and their walkthroughs that also include hyperlinks to other chapters of our guide. If you don't want to miss anything important, you should complete all available side missions - they are related to the trophy Garden of Forking Paths. Another important action you should perform during the whole game is opening the Trickster Doors. In order to unlock the secret boss battle, you must open them all.
  5. Obtaining all achievements will take about 30 hours of playing the game. Beating the campaign on one of the default difficulty levels should take you about 12-15 hours. The optional content provides a few additional hours. Beating the game again on the highest difficulty level, Apocalyptic, might force you to repeat some of the harder battles. However, you will no longer have to deal with the optional content of the campaign.

Commentary: Arena is one of the optional activities available in Darksiders Genesis. You can learn more about its principles in one of the pages of the Basics chapter of our guide. It is worth mentioning that you can visit the arena for the first time once you defeat the boss Mammon in the sixth chapter of the campaign. New arenas become available as you progress through the main story of the game. it is best to wait until you unlock them all. In the arena, you must defeat waves of enemies. It is always 9 waves of "regular" enemies and the tenth wave with a boss.

The score related to this trophy can be obtained once you eliminate around 80 waves. This makes this trophy one of the hardest ones in the game. To get it, you must master the combat mechanics and familiarize yourself with all enemies. Once you do that, you should be able to successfully complete a series of a few dozens of waves.

Full of Hell

Additional note - You don't need to beat the whole game on Hard difficulty during a single approach. You can select the difficulty level at the portal, when you select a level. If a chapter proves to be too difficult for you and you have reduced the difficulty level, you can return to that mission later and repeat it on hard settings.

We recommend that you select Hard difficulty, as it will enable you to obtain the Full of Hell trophy, to familiarize yourself very well with combat mechanics and methods of eliminating main monsters.

The battles (especially the ones with bosses) are much harder when you play them on Apocalyptic difficulty level. We recommend checking the Combat system page and the Bosses and mini-bosses chapter in our guide. There, you can find many pieces of useful advice.
