Supernova

SUPERNOVA
Completed The Outer Worlds on supernova difficulty

Supernova is the hardest difficulty in the game and this means the enemies are very hard to kill and can kill you very quickly, it also comes with the following added difficulty factors

  • Companions can die permanently and can’t be revived
  • You can only fast travel to your ship
  • You can only save in your ship
  • Autosaves are very sporadic

Well Dressed
Bronze Image
GS - 15

WELL DRESSED
Wore ‘A Nice Hat’ and ‘Chimaera’ at the same time

MISSABLE

To get this trophy / achievement you need to get a hold of 2 items which are described as  ‘a nice hat‘ and the ‘chimaera‘, the ‘a nice hat‘ has a fixed location of the Monarch Wilderness your best starting point is the Stellar Bay ruins (south) fast travel where you want to go across the bridge after exiting the stellar bay ruins then turn right and head forward keeping an eye out on the left for a building with a dome top as this is your destination which once inside proceed forward until you see the skeleton in a little recess that is wearing the ‘a nice hat‘ so simply pick up the hat and your first part has been acquired
To obtain the chimaera you need to compete the side quest “Makes space suits, won’t travel” this is potentially missable if you become hostile towards the Halcyon Holdings Corporate Board as a member of this faction is the side quest giver and if hostile you wont ever get the option to receive this side quest so it pays to be polite to all factions
Also, The Outer Worlds does not feature a new game+ option so this is potentially missable if you proceed past the point of no return screen but as this is clearly prompted on screen you should not have any problems in backtracking to complete this
With both parts in your inventory pause the game and equip them both to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Level 30
Bronze Image
GS - 15

LEVEL 30

The Outer Worlds does have a new game+ option so you can reach a point of no return but this is clearly pointed out to you many times so if you’re not a level 30 by this point simply continue to level up until you reach level 30, unlocking your Trophy / Achievement
