Welcome to the trophy guide for Dead End Job. 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 the game [4x]


You’ll need to complete the game a total of 4 times.
You’ll need to “Fail” 3 times, earning you the trophies:
– Bye Bye Beryl (Say goodbye to Beryl)
– Groundhog Affray (Say goodbye to Beryl again)
– Doctor, WHY? (Say goodbye to Beryl again AGAIN)

You’ll need to “Win” once, meaning you will beat the final level (Ghost Dimension, after earning 1.000.000 cash). This will unlock the “Soul Saviour” (Rescue Beryl’s soul) trophy.

Beating the game will also unlock the “Say goodbye to Beryl” trophies, so you can also win a total of 4 times if you would like.

During your runs, focus on:
Completing 25 Industrial / Business District / Park / Restaurant jobs.
Failing a level doesn’t count towards this.

While doing those jobs, always pick the hardest difficulty for that region. This will help towards killing 30 specific enemies:
– Defeat 30 Poultrygeists (Winner Winner)
– Defeat 30 Office Assisthaunts (I Don’t Need Any Help)
– Defeat 30 Trollten (Too Hot to Handle)
– Defeat 30 VooDooDoo (Super Duper Pooper Scooper)

This trophy can be earned in 2 possible ways:
A) Fail for a third time in saving Beryl, or;
B) Succeed for a third time in saving Beryl.

A combination of failing/winning is possible too.
If you go for the “failing” option, you’ll need to complete all 30 days. If you succeed, you will start a new run right away.


 Soul Saviour
Rescue Beryl’s soul

You’ll need to rescue Beryl’s soul. This is done by reaching 1.000.000 cash ingame. It will open up the Ghost dimension portal, allowing you to play the 5th area.

Inside the Ghost dimension, you’ll have to complete a floor or each area (Industrial, Restaurant, Park, Business) once more. Once this is done, you’ll reach the roof of the building, where you will face the final boss.

The final boss has 2 stages, but isn’t hard to defeat at all. Simply keep shooting at him and you should have him killed within the minute.

Refer to the trophy “Undead With No Bloodshed” if you would love to see a playthrough without damage on this.


 Undead With No Bloodshed
Complete the ghost dimension without taking damage

The Ghost Dimension is a bit different then the regular levels you are used to. It contains a lot of explosive objects that could possible damage you.
When entering a room, it’s important that you shoot all objects first, while standing save in a corner.

The layout of the Ghost dimension is as followed:
A) Industrial Estate floor
B) Restaurant Ave. floor
C) Park floor
D) Business District floor
E) Roof top – Final boss

When attempting this, make sure you made a local save to a USB or the cloud, so you can reload if it goes wrong.

A verbal warning can be unlocked as a skill when making a promotion. This allows you to die, without losing all your active perks. Always pick this perk when it shows up, as it is really rare and has a strong effect on your gameplay.

It can be found in the industrial Estate or the Ghost Dimension. Finding it in the current game version is very hard, near impossible.

There is an upcoming update scheduled for November / December that makes collecting the items a lot easier. The publisher mentioned the following:

[Some] stuff is pretty rare to come across, it’s fixed to a degree in the 7 deadly sins update when that rolls out. [………] You can get them right now, but in the next update hard to find stuff gets easier to find once you’ve played the game a lot, to try and cut down on the random number generator that disfavors people that are just trying to get the last things. The rarer items need you to play later levels to try and get them [Industrial Estate] )you can’t get really rare stuff in the Officer)
