    ***MISSABLE!!!*** Unfortunately, if you upgrade your fortitude too much before doing "Geronimo" in multiplayer, the trial will become impossible to complete. Hopefully a patch will address this.

    EDIT: Changed formatting to hopefully make this guide a little less confusing.

    *MULTIPLAYER TRIALS TIP*


    My friend and I discovered an easy solution to doing the 250 missions and 50 bosses easily.. let start with the bosses


    Two people are required for this, both of you will be taking turns doing this. The friend that is the host will not be doing this first. Start off by loading up episode 1 then both of you getting some Bazooka Cannons, they can be purchased from a store or make with a Toy Cannon and Chemicals which can be found in Ye Olde Toybox in the area you Spawn in.

    Now that you've done that, complete the main mission and do the kill zombies side missions up until 100/100 kills(this is so the boss spawns on day 2)then just do whatever until day 2.

    *1 Day Later*


    Now that you've got to day 2 still with your Bazooka Cannons(Make them gold if you can for bonus damage), do the main mission and any side missions that follow, once that is done it should be roughly 12 noon - 1 pm and the boss should spawn. Make sure you both run over there to the gong(DO NOT HIT THE GONG)and have the host get somewhere safe. Here's where the method comes in.

    Have the host kick you from the game and you'll notice you'll be in a game by yourself, spawn and kill the boss then join your friends game in progress, once you spawn in his/her game pick up the Bazooka Cannon( It'll be where you were last standing in his/her game before they kicked you, if not have the host drop you one that they should of picked up)
    *NOTE*
    Make sure the host doesn't spawn the boss in their game, when the day is going to end then they spawn and kill the boss so at least they get 1 kill.

    Have the host kick you, kill the boss, join back and pick up the gun, host kicks you, kill the boss, join back....yeah you get the idea


    Alright so for the 250 missions it's almost the same thing, load up epsiode 1(pay attention here) clear out the area it says to for the first main mission and it should say collect your reward to complete it DON'T collect the reward. Have the host get somewhere safe and kick you, once you've been kicked collect the reward and you'll get credit for the mission, join their game, get kicked, collect reward, repeat.

    Hope I helped everyone out! :D



    P.S if you have no one to do this with message me on Xbox asking me for help on DR4 multiplayer and I'll spend some time helping you out :)

    DonkkeyWorks like a charm!

    I tried several times to do the boss repeat, and it only allowed us to repeat the boss once. After coming back twice, the game split us up and glitched out.

    As for the 250 missions part. It worked. Best to start and go and get the zapper tripod in the camera store. it clears the enemies in any store quickly, even running up to get it and coming back down to clear the store down stairs is worth it. by 11am you finished your mission and you can get 8-10 or more completed before 9pm
