If you’re looking for some Uncharted 4 multiplayer tips, you’re in the right place! Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End just launched to universal critical and commercial acclaim, and it’s well-deserved. The game is fantastic, and one of the best on the PS4. That being said, one portion of the package that’s equally as fantastic, but gets swept under the rug, is the Uncharted 4 multiplayer.
It’s understandable though. Uncharted is, first and foremost, a singleplayer series, and despite Naughty Dog’s best efforts that hasn’t changed. But like Uncharted 2, 3 and The Last of Us before it, Uncharted 4 packs a superb multiplayer that’s easy to learn, but hard to master.
So, here is IGCritic’s complete Uncharted 4 multiplayer tips guide, complete with all the advice and tricks you need to become a master fortune hunter.
How To Get Relics Fast
Relics are the in-game currency used by Uncharted 4’s multiplayer that allows you to unlock vanity items, boosters, mods and hero weapons. Vanity items range from skins to taunts while boosters are single-use and the mods are for sidekicks and mysticals. Hero weapons come pre-equipped with two weapon mods, so they’re powerful items that are worth collecting.
Getting relics fast isn’t easy, but there are a few main ways that it’s done. You do get 10 relics for winning a game, but even the best loadout in Uncharted 4 won’t guarantee you a victory. It’s a team game, so you’ll lose a lot. Out of the current selection of Uncharted 4 multiplayer modes, Team Deathmatch is quickest and easiest, so play that.
Now, onto some quicker relic-earning methods. Firstly, you can download the free mobile app, Uncharted: Fortune Hunter (Download HERE for Android, and HERE for IOS), which allows you to earn relics by completing puzzles. It’s not clear exactly how many relics you can earn in the Uncharted: Fortune Hunter app, but it’s feasible to attain 250 each day by just finishing a few puzzles.
Fastest Route To Relics: Complete Multiplayer Trials
Multiplayer Trials are quick to complete and yield pretty decent relic rewards upon completion. The amount of Uncharted 4 multiplayer modes is thin, and you only get 10 for a victory, so you’ll have to play through these slightly boring pseudo-tutorials if you want those relics fast. You do get an easy PS4 trophy for finishing them on moderate, so it’s not all bad.
There are 14 Trials in total (besides the Introduction) and each has three difficulty levels. Complete a trial on moderate and you earn 50 relics, hard is 100 relics and crushing is 150. So, if we do some quick math, we can figure out just how efficient this method would be:
- 50 x 14 = 700 (14 trials on moderate)
- 100 x 14 = 1,400 (14 trials on hard)
- 150 x 14 = 2,100 (14 trials on crushing)
Add that all together and you get a grand total of 4,200 relics for completing 42 Trials. Each trial takes about 2 minutes, which puts your total Trials playtime at roughly 90 minutes, factoring in load times and one or two failures. Considering you only get 10 for winning a 7 or 8-minute match, the Trials are an excellent way to hoard some relics relatively quickly.
Lastly, you can complete daily challenges to earn anywhere between 250 and 450 relics a pop. 1 challenge will appear every day, giving you roughly 1 or 2 chests to open daily.
Alternatively, you can buy Uncharted points to unlock cosmetic items, but you can’t get hero weapons this way, so I’d stick with Trials and the Uncharted 4: Fortune Hunter app. This is one of the most important Uncharted 4 multiplayer tips that will help you dominate – getting those hero weapons will see a drastic boost to your gunplay.
