Exoprimal Trophy Guide & How to Get Platinum

Exoprimal Featured Image

Capcom’s newest dinosaur-inspired PvPvE third-person shooter has gone live after a couple of open betas. So far the game delivers on visuals and gameplay but we have to see what the game truly has to offer outside of combat challenges against other teams. There is a story to the game so we’ll have to see if there’s something more to it than a suspicious A.I. dropping your team into dangerous situations.

In this Exoprimal trophy guide, we’ll tell you what you need to know to get the Platinum trophy for the game. Do keep in mind that this is a live service game and you’ll be asked to be very familiar with all 10 of the base game’s suits. More suits and dinosaurs are planned to be introduced in future seasons of the game.

In total, there are 40 Trophies to collect during the course of playing Exoprimal:

  • 1 Platinum Trophy
  • 5 Gold Trophies
  • 5 Silver Trophies
  • 29 Bronze Trophies

The Platinum trophy run for Exoprimal is a time-consuming one. That shouldn’t surprise anyone considering it’s a live-service game with seasonal content. What did surprise us though is the fact that most of the trophies are straight-forward. They are mostly tied to progression, kill counts, ability usage, and suit customization. We are thankful that they didn’t include trophies that required us to do a certain number of mission types. That would require RNG, which isn’t too bad. But at the same time, would spoil quick trophy runs.

Almost all of the Gold trophies can be acquired in due time. The Cretaceous Eradicator trophy will probably take the most time as it will require you to eliminate 100,000 dinosaurs. The Assault class suits are designed to kill dinosaurs, they are your best bet for acquiring the trophy in a relatively short period of time. Tank and Support mains are capable of reaching that number eventually but you’re better off focusing on what your class brings to the team. (Except Krieger. That tank is the embodiment of “the best defense is a good offense.“)

For those who don’t quite know yet, you can actually change suits in the middle of combat in Exoprimal. This can be especially useful when you are attempting to get the Shapeshifter Silver trophy. Be warned, however. Changing suits leaves you vulnerable for a short while until the Exosuit is ready for deployment.

This then brings us to the No Exosuit? No Problem Bronze trophy. On paper, this looks like an easy challenge. But you’ll quickly find out that your assault rifle won’t do much against a tsunami of dinosaur bodies. It’s best to do this one at the start of a match when you are only facing up against tiny raptors.

The Arms Dealer Silver trophy asks you to unlock three rigs. Rigs are changeable support equipment that provides a host of tactical advantages. They can be changed at any time. During the game’s Beta, 6 pieces of equipment were available to players. We don’t quite know yet if some of them are locked now or if more rigs were introduced in the full release.

We won’t be going over the difference between Assault class suits. Each of them can easily reach 1,000 kills once you get familiar with their kits.

Out of the three Tank suits, Roadblock has the toughest shield and can be activated at any time for as long as it has energy. Much like Reinhardt’s shield. Krieger’s shield functions similarly to Winston’s bubble shield. It’s all about timing for that one. Murasame doesn’t block per se, it’s more like an active parry than an outright shield. We are tempted to compare it to Genji’s deflect but it actually absorbs energy instead of deflecting projectiles back in the opposite direction.

Skywave is almost Mercy-like floating above the battlefield. Skywave also does the most amount of team healing. Witchdoctor does the most amount of single-focused healing but may struggle if multiple allies need healing at once. Nimbus switches between offensive and healing modes. It is not possible to do both at the same time unless supercharged.

And that’s our thoughts on the Platinum run for Exoprimal. It’s definitely a game that’s unique enough to catch the attention of many. It’s no Dino Crisis but hopefully, that’s what Capcom is working on down the line. It’ll all depend on the players’ reception of this game in the near and long run. (And finally, as someone who has grown up at the height of Jurassic Park, I think that dinosaurs will never be not cool.) Good hunting, Trophy hunters.

Exoprimal is out now on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as on Xbox consoles and PC (via Steam).
