Ruiner is a futuristic indie twin-stick shooter set in the year 2091 in the cyber metropolis Rengkok. A wired sociopath lashes out against a corrupt system to retrieve his kidnapped brother and uncover the truth under the guidance of a secretive Hacker friend. It is a fairly quick game to platinum, but its hard difficulty setting (which is required for the Hacker (gold) trophy) is quite challenging. The game features a wide variety of abilities and skills to unlock, including an energy shield, kinetic barrier, grid converter, dash augmentations, and reflex booster to help you avoid damage while inflicting it upon others.

It was developed by Reikon Games and published by Devolver Digital.

RoadmapEdit

In order to earn all trophies, you should play through the game twice. However, it does not matter which order you do the two playthroughs, so you may complete the following two steps in whichever order you prefer.

Step 1: Complete the game on Hard difficulty, earning miscellaneous trophiesEdit

This will be your longest playthrough, and you will earn at least the following trophies:

(bronze)Don't even get me started  unmissable
(silver)I'm in charge now  unmissable
(silver)Who's the King?  unmissable
(bronze)Wanted DEAD or ALIVE  unmissable
(bronze)Take It Easy  unmissable
(silver)RUINER 
(gold)Hacker 

However, you will likely also earn most of the game's other miscellaneous trophies as well, and you should try to unlock as many of them as possible in this step. The only trophy you should not aim for in this step is GOD MODE: ON (gold).

Step 2: Complete the game without dying on Easy difficultyEdit

If you do this as your second playthrough, this should only take you 2 hours or so, as you will already know the game fairly well.

In this step, you will unlock GOD MODE: ON (gold) as well as the platinum: Nailed It! (platinum).

Defeat Nerve

You will be spawned into a boxed room after chasing the Wizard through the level - Nerve will drop down from his perch and after some dialog will engage you.

Nerve has two phases, his first is melee coupled with erratic dashing and a whirlwind attack that will launch him in the direction you are, use your slow-mo ability to evade this and close the gap after it is completed to get in a few melee attacks or charge attacks if you've taken the skill.

After a certain damage threshold, Nerve will leap into the air and bombs will drop on the area. Avoid these by dashing or circling the outside of the room in order to avoid cornering or surrounding yourself with detonations.

Nerve will then drop down and immediately dash to you, so use your slow-mo ability again and repeat the cycle.

Consistent dashing and use of slow-mo, alongside a strong melee weapon (use supply drop) and Nerve should go down without too many deaths.

Who's the King?
Who's the King? Who's the King?Who's the King? [add/edit tips]
Defeat TrafficKing

King has a mechanic that is out of sorts with the rest of the boss fights you will have encountered up until this point. After a short chase segment you will be led into a room and King will be raised up into the room.

You'll notice he is surrounded by 4 short pillars, these are the key to beating him.

Lure King into the center of the 4 pillars, and melee each pillar to bring it up out of the floor. Once they are raised, another melee attack it will then become charged (glowing an electric blue) do this for each pillar and King will be stunned for a short period - use this time to melee him or shotgun him. Use your dash as much as possible here to avoid any damage from King.

Slow-mo can be used almost indefinitely on this fight (if you've taken the energy upgrades from the Use Of Weapons skill tree) so keep it up when you can, only deactivating the skill when King becomes stunned so you can squeeze in your damage and save a bit of energy.

After you've done this a few times he will then begin to drop bombs similar to Nerve - if you've been dashing and using slow-mo this won't be an issue, just be extra careful not to dodge into an exploding bomb.

Repeat this a few times and you'll kill King and obtain the trophy.

Defeat Sisters

You will encounter the sisters in two areas of Hell, in the first encounter rather than fight them directly, they will Bring King back to life as a cyborg.


You can cheese through this encounter by taking the shock grenade and max out the use of weapons skill tree so you regain energy during ranged attacks. Throw a grenade, shoot the boss and grenade again, if performed correctly the cyborg is unable to move at all.

After you've depleted his health, the sisters will then revive him, simply repeat the stunlock and he will go down for a second time. Yet again the sisters will revive the cyborg for the third and final time, stunlock him to his final death. The sisters will leave and you'll continue to follow them, eventually leading to a direct engagement.

For this fight, You'll see a pod located in the center of the room, this will be your main source of damage negation throughout the fight as the sisters will use the same attack the Mother Unit has used in your previous encounters. Energy shield is not needed as you will use the pod in the center of the room to stand behind and wait out the energy beam so spend them elsewhere to gain an advantage.

Around the pod you'll notice more Angels and corpse piles, in order to reduce the host spawns in the first phase you will need to burn these quickly, the Angels themselves cannot be killed so don't waste time attempting to finish them.

Phase two is much like phase one with no change in boss abilities or attacks - the only difference is that the unkillable Angels will periodically spawn hosts, just take these out and continue as you did throughout the first phase, the sisters will go down, and your trophy will pop.

Finish Epilogue

After meeting your brother you'll be thrown into another arena. Waves of enemies will spawn, spanning across all those you've encountered throughout the game, two of which will be cyborgs. Use the shock grenade to keep them stunned indefinitely until they die. This area is very good for obtaining Mind control master (silver) as you can max out the Ghost Break skill tree and let them fight among themselves. Once you've finished this area you'll get another cut-scene and your trophy.

Kill all Angels

You will encounter most of the Angels throughout playing the story, just make sure to kill every single one prior to advancing through - this is most important when you reach hell, kill both the corpse piles and wait for the Angel to explode, if you have difficulty spotting them just follow the Hosts spawning direction and it will lead you to them.

Beat the game without dying

Complete this trophy during your easy run, if you've chosen to do the hard run prior to this you should have no issue, be careful as there are a few areas with traps – most of them are very visible but pay extra close attention when progressing through the creeps nest, faint trip wires will set off a shotgun trap which is an instant kill, dash spam your way past the trap.

Kill 3 enemies with one explosion

It may take a few tries and a bit of luck to obtain.

Beat the game on Hard Difficulty

The difficulty of this trophy is entirely subjective, as certain skill builds will work for some people and not for others. Maxed resource optimizer, dash, and reflex are all useful throughout the game alongside switching between energy shield, power attack, use of weapons and shock launcher dependent on the boss or area.

Utilize the game's skill tree as you can chop and change your skill build mid-fight if you wish, adapt to the bosses should you have issues and run with what works best for you.
