    Default Are you frustrated getting the Beat Zico trophy?

    I think the hardest trophy to get on Wipeout HD Fury or Wipeout 2048 is the Beat Zico trophy and its a huge pain and cause frustration to any person getting this trophy. To me I try to get the trophy by doing 4 BR's, but I get frustrated and I give up. Do you people get frustrated getting the trophy and give up or get a cool head and go for it?

    Hey Kronic.

    Don't feel so bad. Beat Zico is the only trophy standing between me and Platinum too. I suck at time trials/speed laps and squeezing out barrel rolls, so I don't think I'll be getting this trophy anytime soon. My best time so far is an unimpressive 32.18.

    Here's my easy technique with 3BRs. IMHO the easiest way if you don't like the overpass BR.
    I tried to make it as simple as possible, minimal sideshift or BR, and still with 0.5s to play with. If you SS a few extra times than in the video you will get it no problem, even with worse lines

    Marry me, Yeldar.

    Personally, I think the hardest BR is the one you execute when you're heading downward towards the narrow part of the track after the three speed pads. I think it's the second BR. I can't seem to find the right place to gain airtime!

    It's really all about practice. My times were in the 32 second range when I decided to watch a bunch of videos and then dedicate an afternoon to practice. I then achieved the trophy that evening. 2048 Zico is not as hard though.

    Unfortunately the only thing standing between me and Platinum is AG Assassin... simply because I hate online eliminator. I might try to organize a group to race without using shields to try to get this trophy (I have 44 online kills).

    30.821! FFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    Anyway, I hate this trophy so much! To be honest, the BR onto the overpass is the hardest part of this trophy, and as well as sideshifting at the right points.

    @DDD: I could race with you sometime in Eliminator and you can kill me a bunch of times to get the trophy... (Enough offtopic, back to Zico!)

    It definitely wasn't my favorite trophy, and you're right about the BR onto the bridge being the toughest. That's the one I always screwed up!! About Elim, while I thank you for your generosity Mike, I want to earn this trophy the right way, in a competitive eliminator match to feel complete.

    To beat Zico is a toughtie, took me nearly 2000 laps to beat it! but in Vita, took me about 5 laps, go figure.

    Mind you, as in Zico did used two BRs for his time.

    stevie

    Edit just realized, I only done 5 laps not 100!

    You'll get the trophy eventually, you'll see. You just need to invest another afternoon and keep your head cool (I know this is a hard task, but try it! ).

    that's it keep your head cool, do a max of 100 laps a day.
    get your lines right, then the br's become more easy.

    note: lines are more important than br's
