We turn to the Nier:Automata game trophies, of which 48 are here. When and how to get them, consider below.
How to Get Platinum in Nier:Automata?
If you buy trophies and you have completed all three storylines, then you need to play a total of 35 hours to get Final Words platinum. If trophies are not bought, then the total amount of time should be at least 70 hours. All this is added to the need to go through all the story branches, get the endings, complete additional quests and pump the character to the maximum.
Difficulty Levels in Nier:Automata
In Nier:Automata, there are 4 difficulty levels. The choice of one or another leads to certain consequences.
Here is the list:
Easy: Easy to play.
Normal: The gameplay will be slightly difficult.
Hard: Enemy HP increases, strike force. Cannot use target capture.
Very Hard: Enemies have even more HP. Almost every one of them can kill the main character with one blow.
For the first time, most gamers will pass Nier on the usual difficulty. To some players, it may seem too easy in relation to the last stages of the game, especially considering that to get all 26 endings you will have to re-run it at least three times.
Take your time – you will have time to check the level of your skills during repeated passage. One of the reasons I would recommend passing Nier:Automata on the usual difficulty (and not on the difficult one) is the huge difference in the challenge that the player faces in the early and late stages. It will be especially difficult in the first game hour!
On an easy difficulty level, developers almost pass the game for you.
How to Save Game Progress in Nier:Automata?
Autosave is the main aspect of most modern games, but Nier:Automata has eliminated this feature. When the game starts, if you are careful, you will notice several notifications warning about the lack of automatic saving.
Learn, or rather, learn to persist manually! To save, virtually all you need to do is find a special item and interact with it.
Saving points in Nier:Automata are scattered throughout the game world. Problems with their search should not arise! Some access points will be open for interaction, while others will be protected by an energy field or opponents.
Please note that you need to open a special tab in order to save the game in a separate slot.
How to Change Character in Nier:Automata?
In Nier:Automata There are three playable characters. All of them are androids sent by people to Earth to restore peace and cleanse the planet from evil machine guns.
Players cannot voluntarily switch between characters at any time. However, depending on which part of the storyline you are in, you will still be able to choose another hero.
However, after the third passage of the game, you will have a new option that allows you to select a chapter in the main menu and go through it with any of the three characters.
Note. You can unlock other playable characters in New Game +.
How to Upgrade Character in Nier:Automata?
NieR:Automata belongs to the genre of Action-RPG, allowing you to level up your character, earning experience in battle. Yes, you can kill a huge number of weak opponents, but in this way you can’t pump a character quickly. We will list several ways to quickly upgrade.
Amplification chip experience. Such chips constantly fall out of opponents. They can also be purchased from sellers in the resistance camp and bunker. The great news is that the effects from each chip will stack with each other. Therefore, without fear, install several chips at once for the experience. Do not forget to re-melt them to create more powerful chips and pump the level faster.
Side missions in NieR:Automata are interesting bonus tasks that allow you to more deeply understand the plot, but also add experience points. Take all the side quests that you see.
The smart way was invented by one of the Reddit users. If you are stuck in the range of 60-80 levels, then in the role of 9S, go to the central square in an amusement park and crack a large arena with weapons. Subjugate it “to your will”, then to destroy all the cars in the area. When you do this, take aim at the statue of the hare at the fountain and crack it. So an enemy of level 80 will appear, for the destruction of which you can get a huge number of experience points. Hack to increase damage dealt. Do not forget to use the maximum number of experience chips.
How to find Emil in Nier:Automata?
Emil will appear in the ruins of the city after you complete the story quest in the forest zone. It can travel along three different routes, but it is more likely that the first meeting with the NPC will take place near the trail leading to the desert camp. If you open the map, you can see the marker in the form of “Emil’s head” indicating its location.
While Emil is located near the desert camp, he can buy chips. You may be shocked at the prices offered by him, but know that he sells really useful things, such as Acceleration and Revenge. After talking with him, you can take a side quest, the implementation of which will lead to the receipt of the “Moon Tear” trophy.
The second route along which he moves is between the center of the ruins and an abandoned factory. If you can stop it while moving along this road, then in the list of goods you will see mid-level materials for upgrades. You will be lucky if you have a lot of money in your pocket, because this is the easiest way to quickly upgrade weapons.
His third, final route runs through a waterfall outside the desert camp. If you catch him in this place, then Emil will sell two weapons along with high-level materials for the upgrade. If you want to get all the weapons in the game, then you have to stop him on this route.
How to Change Clothes in Nier:Automata?
In most modern RPGs, gamers can dress up characters as they please. To some extent, Nier:Automata allows the same . To clarify the situation, we note that the game does not have a wide range of unique costumes and outfits that can be selected and changed. Instead, in the first half of the game you can collect various accessories by completing side quests.
For example, it is possible to unlock colored ribbons when completing the quest “The Missing Girl”. To equip this accessory, go to the “Items” menu and select the “Key items” from the list.
At the beginning of the third passage, the combat armor 9S and 2B will be unlocked. You can also equip them through the Key Objects menu. At the moment, these are the only alternative costumes that can be unlocked. It is worth noting that a combat suit does not give any bonuses and positive effects. This is the usual character customization.
How to Remove Skirt in Nier:Automata?
Activate the self-destruction sequence by holding down the K and M keys on the PC. Continue to activate the 2B self-destruction sequence and you will see a timer that counts down to the explosion. As soon as he expires and the character dies, her skirt will fly off.

How to Start the Second Walkthrough in Nier:Automata?
After killing the final boss, view the credits, and then save the game when prompted to do so. Click on “Continue” in the main menu to start all over again. This will be counted as a second walkthrough.
How to Find 9s in Nier:Automata?
After 2B has a scanner, go back to where the main character woke up and look around. We need to find the soldiers of Yorha. One of them should report 9S coordinates. Having received them, go to the underpass and you will see a fork. The left path leads to the place where the aliens were, and the right one leads to 9S. Use the flashlight module to light your path.
How to Earn Money in Nier:Automata?
To buy all the weapons and pump them to the maximum, you need a decent amount of money in NieR:Automata. As the currency in the game, gears are used, called the letter G. Killing opponents, you will receive these gears, but there are ways to make more money.
Complete Side Quests:
They are incredibly useful in NieR:Automata . Having completed them, you can get experience points, materials and a lot of money.

A special chip is used for this – install it to increase the chances of more valuable parts falling out of opponents. You will be able to sell kernels, each of which costs 10000 G.
Get Rid of the Trash
You absolutely do not need to have 99 pieces of different materials. If there are 99 crystals in your inventory, then sell at least 40 of them. Also, when exploring the world, you will come across luxury goods, including bracelets and necklaces. Sell them without a second thought. Even fish caught during fishing will bring some kind of income.
How to Enable Minimap in Nier:Automata?
Check if the mini-card chip is equipped. If this is not the problem, then open the context menu, and then exit it. If this does not help, then remove and reinsert the mini-card chip.
How to Open Closed Doors and Elevators?
In the game you can meet several locked doors and inactive elevators. The creators of the game in one of the interviews said that the publisher Square Enix asked not to talk about these doors. Perhaps there should have been additional locations, but the budget was reduced. On the other hand, these doors may be associated with future additions.
How to Open Locked Chests in Nier:Automata?
During the first passage of the game, pay attention to the fact that some of the chests are locked. When you try to interact with them, a message appears stating that your character does not have access. These chests will unlock when you repeat the second passage, when you are going to get the ending B.
As soon as the second passage begins, you will have the opportunity to hack the chests by holding the corresponding key. A chip will also be available showing the location of all items and chests on the map.
How to Regenerate / Restore Health in Nier:Automata?
Unlike most modern video games, NieR:Automata has no health regeneration. This means that you will have to use special healing items during the battle or rest until the HP scale is full. Listed below are all ways to restore health in the game.
Healing items – by clicking on the appropriate key, you will get access to a quick menu that has these items. It is also possible to open the inventory menu, pausing events in the game, and use healing right from here.
As soon as you have a room in the resistance camp, then visit it every time you need to restore health.
How to Self Destruct in Nier:Automata?
In NieR:Automata, you can use self-destruction to control androids, their explosion. But, keep in mind that such actions will lead to a decrease in the supply of CP to a critical level. For several seconds it will be impossible to move or attack. If there are no chips to increase HP, then you will have to use healing items.
For self-destruction, hold down the K + M keys for two seconds. Please note that during these actions, enemies can still attack your character. Self-destruction is only available for 9S and 2B, while it is not available for A2. The last character, while holding this key combination, activates the Berserk mode, which speeds up movement and the amount of damage done, but slowly devastates the health scale.
Where to Find The YoRHa Squad in Nier:Automata?
This quest can be obtained from the NPC “Operator 60”. The letter will appear in the Inbox folder as soon as gamers get to the flooded part of the city ruins after the destruction of Goliath. As soon as there is a quest, leave the ruins and move in the direction of the marker. In some areas there will be no deserters at all, so you will have to study everything. Once you find two YoRHa units, fight them until they come back.
Many players encountered a problem when units simply did not appear on the map, which prevented the detection of rogue androids. Be aware that completing the Forest Kingdom mission will in most cases lead to the reappearance of units.
When the androids are marked, then go to the right place near the entrance to the city ruins to find the YoRHa units.
Return to the resistance camp with them and talk to Anemone. It turns out that the robber YoRHa did not steal anything. There will be a short call with “Operator 210”. After that, the task should be completed.
