Welcome to the trophy guide for Brief Battles. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Complete all the different battles, collectibles, and target levels within the game.


At the main menu you can choose to play either Battles or Challenges, this does not affect earning trophies. All the Battle trophies require you to play each type (classic battle, knockout, hold the gold, and underpants collector 30 times for each). The Challenge levels require you to complete various levels of difficulty, be it earning silver and gold undies.

NOTE: There is an option in the settings menu under gameplay settings to change the Butt-em-up enemies to be easier, this does not affect earning the two survival trophies. You can see which character skins you have earned from the Reward option in the main menu. All characters have equal abilities and skills, only Violet (and her skin called Yooka-Laylee) is slightly taller than other characters which is advantageous for collecting items that require higher jumps. The other skins are crossovers from Machinarium, Bit.Trip Runner, World of Goo, Toto Temple Deluxe, and Stumpt!

Tips: Accuracy, speed, and timing are key to achieving gold in all collector and target levels. Use portals when you can to get around more quickly or shoot at targets/enemies through them. If you use the toxic green goo balls on a target (tagged) there is a countdown before it is destroyed, so instead after tagging the target, touch it and it will instantly be destroyed. It is recommended that you repeat levels immediately if you didn’t earn the gold undies as the levels have the exact same spawning of enemies, underpants, and bonus letters.

Stage 2 – Earn 3 undies (gold) in each level of the Challenge levels.


There are no missable trophies as all will be earned by playing the Battle levels 30 times each and the Challenge levels by getting gold for each level.

Position yourself on the level under the boss, there are four small waves of the blue gooballs you need to destroy and after each go, hit the boss once and move away so that you are not stunned. After the third gooball wave and you hit the boss, it will divide into smaller and smaller gooballs until you have destroyed all of them.
