Horizon Chase Turbo PlayStation 4 Trophy Guide and Road Map

Check out my Horizon Chase Turbo Platinum Trophy Review to get my thoughts on the game and the platinum trophy journey, or continue on for the guide!

I wouldn’t say Horizon Chase Turbo is a particularly difficult or skill-based game, however, the difficulty does spike at certain points which could be a challenge for some gamers. Overall, I would rate the difficulty a 3/10.

Since Horizon Chase Turbo’s trophies are pretty straightforward and almost entirely unmissable, I will not be listing and explaining every single one. However, I will list the miscellaneous trophies since they require a bit more effort from players.

Stage 1 – Play World Tour and get a Super Trophy for every race

Your first port of call should be World Tour mode as you really shouldn’t have any other mode unlocked at this point. This mode has 109 races in total, across 12 locations.

World Tour mode is quite literally a tour of the world. Each new location you visit will have 1 Upgrade Race and 3 Race Event with 2 – 3 races per event. During World Tour mode, you will be earning points which will unlock more locations and vehicles for you to use. Once you have a few upgrades, I would recommend you start focusing on getting 20 consecutive wins. You can go back and replay earlier locations with a more powerful car if it helps.

Just play at your own pace, however, I would absolutely recommend completing the Upgrade Races as soon as you unlock them. These will upgrade your vehicle’s performance which will keep the races from getting too difficult.

You should also generally try to get a Super Trophy for every race you play. In order to get a Super Trophy you must come 1st as well as collect every coin on the track. You must do both of these during the race, you cannot collect all coins on your 1st attempt and then replay the same mission to finish 1st.

Beat the World Tour with 100%

One last thing I would advise you to do is finish a race with each new vehicle as soon as you unlock them. There is a trophy for finishing at least one race with every vehicle which can be quite tedious if you save it for last so you might as well do it while working through World Tour.

Overall, this mode isn’t very difficult and in order to win each race you only need to finish 5th or higher. You will likely unlock a few miscellaneous trophies during this stage, but everything is replayable so nothing is really missable.

Stage 2 – Play and Beat Tournament Mode

After you beat World Tour, it’s probably best if you head into Tournament mode.

In Tournament Mode you must play 4 races back to back, however, unlike World Tour mode you will get a score from finishing each race which will add up to a total. The racer with the higher total wins the tournament. You will get 20 points for finishing 1st, which is probably the position you want to end each race in. Horizon Chase Turbo will decide the finishing positions of each AI racer upon the start of a tournament, so if you fail to get 1st in one race then whoever has been in 2nd place for the whole tournament will snatch 1st position. This is why it’s highly recommended that you finish 1st as many times as possible to create a gap between you and 2nd place.

The difficulty of Tournament Mode spikes a little bit, but it should still be manageable. I found the best strategy for coming 1st pretty consistently was to save my Nitro Boosts for the last lap. This way I could blast past whoever was in front of me and put a decent gap between myself and 2nd place. You can also try to leave the Nitro Coins for the last lap to give you an extra boost.

In total, Tournament Mode has 24 tournaments that you must win.

Stage 3 – Play and Beat Endurance Mode

Endurance Mode will have you first playing, and winning, 12 races, then 36 races, and finally all 109 races back to back. So buckle in because you’re about to get extremely bored as this will now be the 3rd time you have played all 109 races.

Luckily, you only need to finish 5 in each race to qualify and you can quit out without losing progress which also means you could upload your save file to a USB/PS+ in case you mess up.

This mode doesn’t have any weird difficulty spikes or quirks so just take it at your own pace.

Stage 4 – Mopping Up

At the very end, it’s likely you’ll be missing a few miscellaneous trophies. The only miscellaneous trophy you likely won’t have yet is for finishing a race with every vehicle since you will need to complete every mode to unlock them.

The Platinum is within reach, just sit back and work through what trophies remain.

Miscellaneous Trophies:

Ghostbuster

Beat a ghost

Every time you beat a race, a ghost of your performance will be created. Simply go back to an earlier race—since your time will likely be quite slow—and use your fastest car to beat your ghost

Comeback

Win a race after running out of fuel

Don’t worry, this isn’t as luck-based or as daunting as it sounds. When you run out of fuel, you can no longer accelerate but you absolutely can use your Nitro; you also don’t need to come 1st.

Just smash into objects until your fuel has been drained and then use your saved up Nitro to ping you across the line. 

This can be done on any track, however, more people online seem to have had better success with using a fully upgraded Haze vehicle on Chapada Diamantina – Plateau since it has 2 extra nitros and if you avoid hitting anything or collecting extra fuel, you will very little fuel making it much easier to actually run out.

Living Legend

Reach 1st in 20 consecutive races

You will likely have achieved this trophy during your World Tour, Tournament, or Endurance attempts.

Just load up a short track—such as Arab Emirates – Palm Island – One Lap—in World Tour Mode and complete it in 1st place 20 times in a row. If you’re on the last lap but far from 1st place, simply pause and hit Retry and try again.

That Was Close

Win a race with less than 0.1s of difference from the runner-up

Again, you will likely have achieved this during stages 1 -3.

Just load up a race and try to keep level with 1st place. Right before the finish line, smash your nitro!.

It could take a few attempts, but it’s not all that hard to get.

Call Roadside Assistance

Lose a race running out of fuel

This one is really simple. Just load up a race, smash your car off anything and everything until you run out of fuel.

Can’t Touch This

Win a race without hitting anything

Possibly one of the more luck-based trophies in the game. Load up Arab Emirates – Palm Island – One Lap and try to avoid the other racers until they spread out and you can weave between them without getting slapped around. 

Just keep retrying until you manage to break free from the pack without getting smashed and you should be good to finish 1st without ever getting close to another racer.

Supersonic

Reach 230mph (370km/h)

You’re going to need a downhill map for this trophy so load up California – Sequoia National Park – Into The Woods and use the Twilight vehicle.

Get to 1st in lap 2 so there’s nobody that can get in your way and make sure you approach the decline as fast as you can and hold right and smash the Nitro button all the way down and you should reach 230mph.

This can be a little tricky, but you can just hit pause and retry until you manage to nail it.

Transporter

Finish a race with every vehicle in the game

If you have been completing races with vehicles as soon as you unlocked them like I suggest then you should only have to do a few races to unlock this.

If not, then just load up Arab Emirates – Palm Island – One Lap and finish a race on the track with every vehicle.
