I spent today running through my speed-run of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End to get the last few trophies needed for the Platinum. Outside of the speed-run trophy, I also needed to collect the trophy for killing 100 enemies in a row and the trophy for completing the game with a 70% or better hit ratio. I know there are exploits out there that would have made this easier, but since I already went through my Crushing playthrough without even using the Infinite Ammo or weapon extras, I figured I might as well go through through the run properly as well. But I definitely played through it on Explorer, used the Infinite Ammo extra and ran through most of the game with the Barok pistol and a sniper rifle to keep the hit ratio up. I made it through the whole game in 5 hours 10 minutes. Plenty of time to spare. And I wound up with an 81% hit rate.
I also spent some time with the multiplayer a couple days ago. I’m not really a big multiplayer player but I had a good enough time playing through a few Team Deathmatch and Command matches. I even led my team to victory once. I was playing more of a support role on my teams playing the medic. But I did have a pretty good run of grappling hook melee-ing the other team or giving them a good beating with my AK-47, as well. If I were interested in spending time in online multiplayer, Uncharted 4‘s probably feels right up my alley. But I don’t see myself really diving into it any more.
As for all of the rest of my Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, feel free to check out all of my other ramblings:
- First up, there were my initial impressions after my first night with the game.
- For my Spoiler-Free thoughts, check out my initial review.
- If you’ve played the game, I wrote up an addendum to go over my spoiler-y reactions.
- I also wrote up a feature talking about my issues with the series’ boss fights.
- Lastly, if you want to hear what I thought about the game, there’s the Spoilercast I recorded with the great guys over at Irrational Passions.
So that’s the wrap-up of my Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End content. A great game. Not without its flaws but still very worthwhile for anyone with a PlayStation 4 to pick up.
