Introduction


Trenched is a hybrid tower defense and third person shooter game developed by Double Fine. The game is set after World War I in an alternate reality and follows a rather bizarre but well thought out storyline. This arcade game is unique in the fact it has 20 achievements tied to it as a base list. The achievements are not that difficult but expect to play for a good 10-15 hours.


Playthrough 1


This will be the initial playthrough of the campaign, you'll need to play with a friend to get the most out of this playthrough. There isn't really anything out of the ordinary to look out for except for one of two sniper rifles with the ability 'Ricochet'. This will come as a random drop from Loot Boxes in the later missions. Be sure to keep this once you get it.

If you find some of the later missions too challenging, you can always repeat past missions for experience and money to level up and better equip yourself. You will notice whilst customizing your trench that once a mission is selected it will show recommendations for load outs to use on that mission, take heed of this as they are often key to a winning strategy.

Playthrough 2


This secondary playthrough will be mainly for attaining Gold medals on all missions. By this point your Trench should be level 10 or close to it. You will also have much better equipment to work with and you should have a good grasp on how the game works. If by some chance you have not unlocked 'Bandolier of Brothers', 'Battle Buds' and the boss co-op kill achievements, then this is the playthrough to do so.

If you also have not unlocked the 'Trickshooter', 'Pounder' and 'Conscientious Objector' achievements you should take care of them now.

Playthrough 3

This is not a proper playthrough per say but rather a lot of repeated missions to farm for Scrap and Emplacement kills for the 'Razputin' achievement. If you have not unlocked the 'Monovision Massacre' achievement you will most likely unlock it during this time.

Conclusion

This is another gem from Double Fine that you and your friends will have a blast playing together. There is nothing particularly difficult about this game despite the last few achievements, which will become somewhat of a grind. It is completely possible to attain the completion in 10 hours.

The Lavirix's Gamercard

Awards Showcase Road Map - Bronze   Achievement Guide - Bronze
Total Awards: 2 (more» ...)
Bandolier of Brothers - 5
Completed a mission with 4 players.

From the start menu press on Start Game and you will appear on the ship the 'USS McKinley'. Once Aboard turn left and an onscreen prompt saying 'Radio Room' will be visible, walk over to it and press the button to start Matchmaking. From here you will be able to find other players online by pressing on 'Find Other Players'

Alternatively you may invite people from your party or friends list into the game when aboard the USS McKinley.

Complete a single mission with three others and you will unlock this achievement. The boss missions at the end of each act are generally the shortest missions.


Scrap Snatcher - 10
Collected 10,000 Scrap.

Scrap is the currency used whilst on the battlefield to buy and upgrade turrets. They are visually recognizable as they resemble a TV or monitor coloured bright blue.
To collect scrap just walk over it and it will be picked up.

The trench has ability to pull scrap towards itself by pressing . There are also emplacements called Collection Prongs which will pull scrap towards it self and collect them. Only scrap that you and your emplacements collect will count towards this achievement

If you play through the game normally you should unlock this towards the end of the 'Pacific' act.


Battle Buds - 20
Completed 10 Missions with 2 or more players.

To unlock this achievement you will need to complete 10 missions in Co-op with more than one player.

African Allies - 5
Defeated the Guardian of the Southern Terminal with 2 or more players.

This boss is located at the end of the 'Africa' act in the mission 'Sphinx'.

This is a standard boss battle where shooting at the boss damages it's health. Be sure to place two or three emplacements down around yourself to watch your back as you attack the boss. Like all bosses it has three health bars, once a health bar level is destroyed it will retreat for a short amount of time and send variants of Monovisions to attack you.

Any weapons that inflict massive damage(Artillery, Snipers) is recommended.

This achievement requires you to kill it with more than one player in Co-op.


European Entourage - 5
Defeated the Northern Pylon with 2 or more players.

This boss is located at the end of the 'Europe' act in the mission 'Pylon'.

This is a standard boss battle where shooting at the boss damages it's health. Be sure to place two or three emplacements down around yourself to watch your back as you attack the boss. Like all bosses it has three health bars, once a health bar level is destroyed it will retreat for a short amount of time and send variants of Monovisions to attack you.

The boss will emit a shield around it self when it's health bar reaches the second level, during this time it's body is invulnerable so you will have to damage it's legs to hurt it.

Any weapons that inflict massive damage(Artillery, Snipers) is recommended.


This achievement requires you to kill it with more than one player in Co-op.

Pylon Pillager - 10
Defeated the Northern Pylon.

See 'European Entourage'.

Mobile Trench Recruit - 5
Completed Mobile Trench training.

As soon as you press on the Start Game option in the main menu for the first time you are automatically taken to the tutorial, complete the mission to unlock this achievement.


Terminal Terminator - 10
Defeated the Guardian of the Southern Terminal.

See 'African Allies'.


Rainmaker - 10
Earned $20,000 from mission completion rewards.

At the end of each mission you are awarded money to spend at the shop. The amount depends on how far the mission you completed is through the campaign and what medal you were awarded for it. For instance the last mission 'Farnsworth' rewards $2,000 for being awarded the Bronze medal.

By completing all missions up until this point, you should unlock this on the mission 'Volcano' in the last act 'Pacific'.

Farnsworth Finisher - 10
Defeated Vlad.

See 'Pacific Partnership'.

Medal of Honor - 30
Earned a Gold Medal on every mission.

IMPORTANT: If you Gold medal the last mission you need in Co-op there have been cases where only the host unlocks the achievement despite the others being awarded the Gold medal. If this happens to you do not panic. Replay a few missions, it doesn't matter which and the achievement will pop.


At the end of each mission you are awarded a medal depending on how well you protected the objective and for boss missions how quick you killed the boss.

The requirement for the Gold medal on all missions except boss missions is 80% health left on the objective.
The requirement for the Gold medal on boss missions is time dependent.


Do not expect to Gold medal every mission first go, you will need to level up and upgrade your Trench to easily Gold medal them. In reality you should not have any problem with this achievement with the exception of the second last level 'Volcano' and the last level 'Farnsworth'. The latter being a boss battle.

It is recommended that you use machine guns and machine gun emplacements for 'Volcano'. Learn each wave and it should not be a problem.

'Farnsworth' may seem tough to Gold medal but the boss really has three forms...

First form; one weakness on the top of it's head.

Second form; three weaknesses around it's body.


Third form; four weaknesses that dangle from it's body.


If you equip two 'Gungnir' Sniper Rifles and fire them at the same time at a weakness it will instantly explode. The 'Gungnir' is found in the missions 'Oasis', 'Hospital' and 'Port' in the second act 'Africa'. Make sure the legs you are using have the 'Quick Load' ability on them as there is no point otherwise and remember to redeploy after each cutscene. You will only be able to miss about one shot if you want to make the 320s cut off.

Once all missions have been awarded the Gold medal, this achievement will unlock as well as any other medal related achievement.

Awards Showcase Road Map - Bronze   Achievement Guide - Bronze
Total Awards: 2 (more» ...)
Silver Star - 30
Earned a Silver Medal on every mission.

See 'Medal of Honor'


Big Spender - 5
Purchased an item in the store.

Once you are walking around the ship 'USS McKinley' turn directly around and press on the Customize Trench prompt. It will come up with a menu with various options. Scroll down to the 'Shop' option and browse through the wares. When you find something you like press to choose the slot it will be equipped to and then press once again to buy it and the achievement should unlock.

Conscientious Objector - 5
Completed a solo mission without firing a shot.

This means that you will have to complete a mission by only using Emplacements to kill the enemies. It is recommended to wait until you have the top tier emplacements before attempting this achievement.

Alternatively any legs that have the 'Smash' ability can be used to attack enemies.

The easiest mission to do this on is the first mission of the first act 'Europe' called 'Beach'. As the achievement describes, you will need to do this in single player to unlock the achievement.


Razputin - 5
Completed a mission while wearing the uniform of an elite PSI agent.

This is composed of the Psi Goggles obtained from completing the Challenge for Emplacement Kills and the Raz Sweater obtained from completing the Challenge for Scrap Collected. These are both Personal Challenges, not Regiment Challenges.

To complete the Emplacement Kills Challenge you'll need 2,500 kills solely from Emplacements. This is easiest farmed on the mission 'Oasis'. Use a Chassis that has two Heavy and two Light turret emplacement slots. The map is made up of four lane ways.

The reasoning behind grinding on this mission is that it has the largest volume of Knobs. They will die in as little as one bullet sometimes. In front of the objective you will want to place six Machine Gun emplacements placed in two rows. This will cover the two lanes in the middle. As for the the outer two lanes you will want to place a Mine Dropper on each.

Mine Droppers are hidden emplacements so Monovisions will walk straight past them. Because of this Knobs will roll straight on the mines and head for the Machine Gun emplacements in the middle. Whilst other enemies will walk over them in groups and wipe themselves out.

There is only one wave in which your emplacements may become overwhelmed if they are not sufficiently upgraded, it involves a lot of Knobs and a lot of Aerials. Be sure to maintain this volume of turrets and resist the urge to shoot. Using this method should net 300 - 350 kills each mission for Emplacements.

To complete the Scrap Collected Challenge you'll need 25,000 Scrap. This is easiest farmed on the last mission of the act 'Pacific' called 'Farnsworth'.

Equip a chassis with two Support Emplacements and some sort of long range weapon to defeat the boss with. Equip a Collection Prong, the higher tier it is the better.
Collection Prong emplacements are also a hidden emplacement so Monovisions are oblivious to it. Because your chassis is primarily a Support role, emplacements will be cheaper to buy and upgrade.

Once it starts defeat the first two forms of the boss straight away but leave it sitting on the last form. During this form the boss will cause lightning storms very frequently. During these lightning storms 100 - 200 scrap is dropped all around the level. Place the Collection Prongs everywhere you think is necessary to cover the entire island you are standing on, upgrade as you wish.

You will be attacked by Monovisions constantly so kill them to boost scrap. When playing in single player it is actually impossible to die, when you lose all your health a quick time event will pop up asking you to tap either , , or to regain health. As long as you do not kill the boss, you can sit here forever. Using this method it is entirely possible to collect 2,000 scrap every ten minutes.

Once both items are unlocked complete a single mission whilst wearing them. It is possible to complete the boss mission of the first act 'Europe' in 30 seconds with a good Trench set-up.


Monovision Massacre - 15
Defeated 3500 Monovisions.

A Monovision is just what the enemies are classed as. You will end up with around 2,000 kills by the end of the campaign
. The second last mission 'Volcano' has by far the most enemies and waves, farming for kills is best done on this mission.

Pacific Partnership - 5
Defeated Vlad with 2 or more players.

This boss is located at the end of the 'Pacific' act in the mission 'Farnsworth'.

Unlike the other bosses it is damaged through attacking weaknesses around it's body. You will only damage the boss when the weakness has turned orange. Be sure to place two or three emplacements down around yourself to watch your back as you attack the boss. Like all bosses it has three health bars, once a health bar level is destroyed it will retreat for a short amount of time and send variants of Monovisions to attack you.

If you have turrets placed be sure to watch out for roving groups of Knobs as they will turn them into dust. Once the first weakness on it's head is destroyed it will raise itself up slightly revealing three more weaknesses. When these have been destroyed it will yet again raise itself for the last time to reveal a further four weaknesses.

This achievement requires you to kill it with more than one player in Co-op.

Trickshooter - 5
Killed an enemy with a ricochet sniper shot after 4 bounces.

There are two Sniper Rifles with the ability 'Ricochet', the 'Indirect Sniper Cannon' and 'U0-FM' "Fighting Wolverine". The 'Indirect Sniper Cannon' can be found on the missions 'Sinkhole and 'Port' in the second act 'Africa'. The 'U0-FM' "Fighting Wolverine" can be found on the missions 'Drydock' and 'Volcano' in the final act 'Pacific'.

The easiest way to unlock this achievement is to fire the sniper into large groups of Monovisions, it should work within 20 shots.


Bronze Star - 15
Earned a Bronze Medal on every mission.

Unlike the other two medal related achievements, a Bronze medal is awarded on completion of the mission. So this will unlock once you have completed the game.

Pounder - 5
Destroyed 5 Enemies with a single explosion.

Load the mission 'Oasis' in the second act 'Africa'. This is the mission where the Knob variant of Monovisions is introduced. They are very weak and generally die in a single bullet. They travel in packs of up to fifteen at a time so killing them with an explosive is very easy.

Alternatively you can e
quip an Artillery weapon and walk close to a Monovision Eruptor and wait until a cluster of enemies spawn. Try to aim in the middle of the group and you should unlock this easily.

This can be done with any form of explosion created by the player.

What I want to know is does scrap picked up by your teammates count towards your achievement.

Well god damn. I just finished up writing a guide and came on here to see if I was gonna be the first. Then I saw this guide . Oh well, I'll help out with this guide instead:

European Entourage:
Although your strategy of just nuking the boss works, I used a different approach. I had 1 person (or 2 if there are 4 players) nuking the boss, while the other 1 or 2 players focused on the monovisions that the boss spawns. I find this strategy to take longer, but it seems easier and less stressful. Your strategy works great for gold (which I would have if not for huge lag spikes >_>), but if people are having trouble at earlier levels my strategy may be easier.

Scrap Snatcher:
Are you sure scrap collected by allies counts? In my regiment challenge screen, it says we have ~14k scrap collected, but none of us have the achievement. Fairly sure only the scrap you collect counts. You might also want to mention that you should use the Collection Magnet support emplacement in kill zones as it will allow you to collect more scrap easier. Also, I've had quite a few people ask me 'How do you collect scrap?'. While I'm fairly sure you get told how to in the tutorial, you may want to mention you can use to drag in scrap towards you.

Pounder:
Again, your strategy works but I think I may have a easier one. Simply launch an artillery shell at a group of knobs (which start appearing either in Mid-Africa or Early Pacific[I forget which one], during a level which you have to defend 3 parts of a ship). Knobs come in packs of at least 10 and they have low hp. One artillery shell will utterly wreck them.

Conscientious Objector:
You say you should use an assault chassy with 2 assault and 2 heavy turrets. Assault chassies can only hold 2 types of turrets max. Unless you mean the player should place down 2 assault turrets of the same type and 2 heavy turrets of the same type. Might just want to clarify what you mean.

Other then the few achievements I mentioned, the guide looks good. If I manage to make it to Vlad and beat him tonight, I'll update my post and post my strategy.

I have completely overhauled the guide to be much more expansive and detailed. Have a look and tell me what you think.

Just a thought, for the all gold medals, can you list the requirements for gold in each mission? For example, % of base health remaining, killed boss in x seconds, etc.

All the % health things are 80% for gold so I didn't bother, as for the seconds for the bosses I might edit it in.

I hadn't edited that since I initially wrote it. I've updated the roadmap to be much more in depth and detailed.

I'm really quite happy with the guide/roadmap at the moment, the only exception is the description of the conscientious objector achievement. I may need to offer a strategy but it is straight forward. I don't really think it is necessary to include the times needed for the boss battles as when you actually try to kill the bosses quick, it is completely possible to do it first go.

Do the boss gold medals require multiple people to play? Or is it feasible to attempt them solo? (Even if it's easier to get them with multiple people online, I often like a challenge.)

An alternative to the quickshooter achievement is to shoot at a group of aerials with the wolverine.

I've killed the first boss in 30 seconds, the second is no different and I've killed the last boss in 3 minutes flat. That being said I did have the two Gungnir snipers working, which meant one shot was a health bar.

I can see how that would work if you're talking about the Trickshooter achievement that is, but I don't think it would be as easy as shooting a wall on an angle.

You shouldn't have a problem doing it by yourself, I used a set up of two gungnir snipers and beat the boss in 3:03 solo. You are using the Quick Load ability right? That is the entire point of using that sniper in particular. In fact all the levels are doable for gold solo once you have a good set up.

There is also a sticky thread for this very purpose, don't post here asking for people.

My colleague found a method to farm scraps yesterday and we both completed the Scraps Collected challenge this way in order to get the Raz Sweater for Razputin achievement. You can also complete the Emplacements Deployed challenge while you're farming for scraps. Here's how we did it:

Play the final boss fight in Pacific solo, bring whatever weapons you like and choose a chassis that allows you to set Support Emplacement, preferably the Scraps magnet thingy, just remember to bring a Gungnir sniper cannon or other long range weapons with you so you can defeat the boss and end the mission. First thing you do is shoot its 4 weak spots when the protective force field is off, just as you normally would when you play this stage. Then collect all the scraps and set some magnet emplacements along the beach. Once the boss re-emerges from the sea, just ignore it, what you want is to wait for it to do its thunder-lightning attack, every time a thunder strikes, a huge amount of scraps is dropped onto the beach from one end to the other, and your magnet emplacements will do all the collecting. Your mech will break down from time to time but you can revive yourself by pressing the button prompted on screen, the mission will never end as long as you don't defeat the boss and you can farm all the scraps to your heart's content. Once you start racking up those scraps, you'll literally have infinite amount of scraps to upgrade and build emplacements, both my colleague and I got to a point where we quite literally had no more space on the beach to build any more emplacements, and all those magnets emplacements will count toward your Emplacements Deployed challenge. Once you feel you've collected enough scraps, just kill the boss and end the mission. My colleague played this stage for an hour and farmed a total of around 12000+ scraps, I did it for 30 minutes and got 6000+. I don't know how many scraps you can farm in Volcano, but IMO this method feels a lot easier and effortless in comparison.

Volcano is about 2500 every 15 - 20 minutes I think. I'll test out your method in a little while and I might possibly incorporate.

I live in Australia. There are other countries on earth So it is actually just selected eu territories that are affected. They have said quite openly that it will be available some time in eu.

We’ve had players in Europe reporting that they can’t find the game on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Where is TRENCHED in Europe? We’re glad you asked! We were planning to ship the game simultaneously in all territories but we’ve run into some snags! This has nothing to do with the fact that English is really hard to translate into German. We love German… it’s a beautiful language! Honest! We’re trying very hard to resolve our European problems as quickly as we can. We’re sorry for the inconvenience to all of our European friends. We want to play TRENCHED with you guys really badly! We’re not sure when these issues will be taken care of but we’ll let you know as soon as things are straightened out! Thanks!
Love,
Double Fine

A quick google.
