Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Trophy List Revealed!


Yoshikazu Matsuhana's Avatar Posted by on Aug 03, 2012 // Producer, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Project

Update: The patch is now live in North America. Happy Trophy hunting!

Platinum Trophy

Did you all experience Metal Gear Solid 4 back in 2008? Or maybe for some reason you missed it? The Trophy system was introduced to PS3 in the middle of 2008. However, by that time, MGS4 had already finished development and was about to launch, so we were regrettably unable to implement Trophies at launch. But, we’ve always had it on our to-do list and users have given us continuous feedback requesting Trophies over the years.

For all those who have asked “where are the Trophies?” we are very sorry for the long wait. However, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear series, we are very pleased to announce that trophies will finally be coming to MGS4 in the beginning of August!

Furthermore, retail versions of the game in stores will be updated to offer native Trophy support out of the box.

For loyal fans and new players alike, there’s never been a better time to relive the experience of MGS4. The timeless PS3 classic is back – now with full Trophy support!!

+ M-Easy on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:19 pm said:

Wow this list is hard! You want 10-15 more playthroughs on an older game. Ugh


+ TooLVolta on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:42 pm said:

Thank you, now all there is left to do is bring MGO back 8)


+ talisj1 on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:45 pm said:

is this supposed 2 make up 4 the termination of mgo??? unlikely.


+ pgharavi on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:46 pm said:

Do we have a confirmed date of August 6th for the U.S. patch?


+ TooLVolta on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:47 pm said:

Some people will never be grateful…


+ Shadow5k on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:50 pm said:

Looks like I have to get the Big Boss Emblem…. again.. and to get the long and tedious Chicken Emblem.


+ IcedDice777 on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:51 pm said:

1st Things first…Thank you! Looking forward to playing the game again. Second, To be honest…i was expecting 50 trophies plus the platinum on this trophy patch update Since MGS 4 is/was one of the BiGGEST flagship titles released on the PS3. Still, thank you konami. Ps. Please reconsider releasing MGO multiplayer on PSN just like Killzone 3 did. Hint hint…hint.


+ ausse777 on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:52 pm said:

Now just put the game on playstation store and I’ll gladly buy it!


+ KosmoCrisis on August 3rd, 2012 at 1:55 pm said:

The right handle in the image of the bronze trophy appears cut off. Oops guy who made the image.


+ DirjelJunshin on August 3rd, 2012 at 2:06 pm said:

Lots of tough trophies… assuming you haven’t totally dominated the game already!


+ MarinoBrea on August 3rd, 2012 at 2:14 pm said:




+ Goddess_Katheryn on August 3rd, 2012 at 2:53 pm said:

Nice! A great excuse to play a classical masterpiece again, especially with the patch to also allow install of all chapters as opposed to one when you get to that point in the game.

It doesn’t seem like the full list, I have a feeling some are “hidden trophies” for storyline events to avoid spoilers for possible newcomers and such. That’s just my guess though. Either way, I’m looking forward to it!


+ chiefdog11 on August 3rd, 2012 at 3:08 pm said:

This isn’t a full list people. Konami has already stated that there will be a total of 34 trophies.


+ faraway25 on August 3rd, 2012 at 3:16 pm said:

I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit disappointed by this and might not even make the rerun to get the trophies. It’s going to take too long to get a platinum. I wouldn’t mind this partial trophy list if it wasn’t for the fact that the game is 4years old and I had it since launch and replayed it multiple times and spent several years on Metal Gear Online. I would love to replay it but with no huge pay off i.e. too hard platinum it’s kinda not worth it. There are just too many games I have to play and games coming out soon that I want to play to replay a game that I owned for 4 years like 20 times!!

But then again with this update coming with a rerelease basically. I’m just guessing you guys are aiming for new comers to PS3 that may have missed it and not people like me. Oh well.


+ Carl-G on August 3rd, 2012 at 3:43 pm said:

Cool:P :P :P But i am confused about why other game makers say they can’t do a Trophy patch for their older games(like Resistance 1 & R&C:ToD & MotorStorm 1 etc etc)? Confusing that:D Oh well i can’t wait to play MGS4 again & see the Trophies pop up :D


+ Frejim on August 3rd, 2012 at 3:46 pm said:

August 6th – Hiroshima Bomb Anniversary kudos to Kojima san!

and no, this wont be an easy plat as some people have mentioned here!


+ NeoRaidenX on August 3rd, 2012 at 3:55 pm said:

It’s been 4 years. You guys hold the record, for longest ongoing console game without trophies/achievements with them later being patched in. Wooo.!

Was disappointed when MGS4 didn’t have trophies back when I played it on launch day. However, this is perfect timing, since I was about ready to give the game a second go through soon anyway. Excited to play through the game with trophies.

Thank you for patching them in, like many have said, better late than never.


+ Dante989 on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:02 pm said:

Forget the trophies. I’m diving back in just based on the fact that I don’t have to install every chapter now. Gonna bring back some memories of when I first bought my PS3…. good times, good times.


+ Frejim on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:06 pm said:

it was my first PS3 and game too, actually it was the limited edition GUNMETAL GREY Kojima Edition.
Too bad it’s already gone!


+ Kchow23 on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:10 pm said:

Confirmation from Kojima Production’s twitter.

@Kojima_Pro_Live Yes, there are hidden trophies @KC_32: Are those all the trophies? or are there hidden ones that weren’t posted? 20 trophies is a bit short.


+ Destiny89 on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:13 pm said:

This might sound silly but i bought the game and didnt play it due to not having trophies now guess what? i’ll finally play my first MGS game :P
plzzzz next up Valkyria chronicles trophies


+ NauseousPenguin on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:16 pm said:

Adding trophies to a title that lacked them at launch? Quite interesting. Is it a possibility for the same to be done for R&C: Tools of Destruction sometime in the future?


+ DION3TO on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:17 pm said:

It has finally come!


+ Frejim on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:24 pm said:

@Destiny89 you should really play the other MGS games before this one!!!


+ Hell_Awaits16 on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:28 pm said:

Ahhhhhhhh Liquiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid!


+ sk8allday25 on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:31 pm said:

can we please get Metal gear solid HD collection on psn store?everyone is asking for.


+ Trieloth on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:33 pm said:

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!!!!!!!! *gives hug


+ FUTURE_TESTER on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:53 pm said:

So…. um If I have MGS4 and I put it in … will there be an update for the game? or will I have to buy the trophy edition again?


+ FullMetalDoctor on August 3rd, 2012 at 4:56 pm said:

Its about time you silly bastards !


+ T-Cal on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:05 pm said:

About D*** Time! I cant wait to pull the game out from the Collection!


+ android92 on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:10 pm said:

I might go pick up this game now that it has trophies. I just wish that insomniac would update their old games with trophies (Resistance 1, Ratchet TOD and Q4B)


+ schmidt22 on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:23 pm said:

This isnt an easy platinum. You get the Snake Eater song for getting all 40 emblems. Too bad I’ll have to do that AGAIN


+ DarkslideSDMF on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:28 pm said:


No apologies necessary!!





+ viceforce on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:40 pm said:

Damn I sold my copy of the game last year. Looks like I’m going to have to buy another to bring Old Snake out of Retirement


+ Pedro408sanjose on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:43 pm said:

Damn, Every Emblem for the song? That’s way hard.


+ ccanfield1 on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:47 pm said:

Awesome ! Thanks for the update. Now here’s hoping Assassin’s Creed gets a trophy update :)


+ moonset9 on August 3rd, 2012 at 5:57 pm said:

thats preety cool

+ Apeman24 on August 3rd, 2012 at 6:54 pm said:

Best game on the Ps3


+ Apeman24 on August 3rd, 2012 at 7:44 pm said:

I hate when people say Ill get it now that it has trophies. This game is above that, you people piss me off, and I’m almost lvl 16 in the trophy lvl and have 33 platinums! Ive beaten this game like 9 times. Do you know why? Because this game is an “experience” no ordinary game! You people are fools. Whatever happened when people, would buy a game based on how good the game is, and then worry about getting the feats later after you took everything in. Take my favorite game of all time “Final Fantasy VII” I have beaten it at least 20+ times because of what it means to me, if it gets trophies one day great, but it would never stop me from geting it, NEVER. I hope after you play this game and really feel it, you will know what I mean.


+ Benmo316 on August 3rd, 2012 at 7:58 pm said:

I’m glad MGS4 is FINALLY getting trophies. It’s been 4 years since it was released, if you weren’t going to put trophies in the game when everyone was clamoring for them 2 years ago why not then? If this is it get people to replay MGS4 or try and get new people to go out and buy it I think that’s a bad strategy, it’s a couple years to late to capitalize on that.


+ U-Longtea89 on August 3rd, 2012 at 7:59 pm said:

Great looks like i will be buying the game again. What about MGO though i heard it was cut off will it return on psn servers


+ tomoyotomoya on August 3rd, 2012 at 8:02 pm said:

If this is gonna the final list of MGS4 trophies, i will absolutely replay it again.

Until now, i just finished this game on the console of my friend. After i’ve bought a PS3, i bought also a copy of MGS4, but never played.

Thanks, KONAMI. Thanks, Mr.Kojima and the stuff.


+ technophobia on August 3rd, 2012 at 8:09 pm said:

Thanks Kojima-san, Konami and crew for pulling this off when we’ve all lost hope!

This is truly a pleasant surprise :D


+ SkyNet003 on August 3rd, 2012 at 8:09 pm said:


If you want to spend a whole week downloading and intalling the 30+ GB required for the game, then be my guest :P


+ TomatoDragon on August 3rd, 2012 at 8:16 pm said:

Awesome news! Time to play it again for the 20th time. :)


+ mahmoud365 on August 3rd, 2012 at 8:35 pm said:

That is great news ! I am really excited for these trophies, metal gear solid 4 was my first ps3 game and it has been always one of the best games I have played and I am really excited to play it again while trying to obtain these trophies.


+ jimmyfoxhound on August 3rd, 2012 at 8:53 pm said:

Nope nope, I’d take an option to install over trophies any day of the week. I love the game but the mandatory chapter installs just ruined my desire to replay the game. I’m not sitting there for 5-10 minutes watching Snake smoke for 5 minutes every chapter, that was so annoying!!
