Fallout New Vegas: Desert Survivalist Trophy - Please Help?

9 replies 157 views Edited Apr 22, 2013

For some reason, under my stats where it's listed "Health From Food", there is no character displayed, not even a zero, it's blank. Every other listed accomplishment reads a numeral character but this one. Can anyone explain why this is happening?

I'm trying to get the Desert Survivalist trophy and thus far cannot because of this.

Yeah, I did. But why the missing character? Kind of odd.

That doesn't work, or, at least, doesn't seem to. You have to gain health from the food which means, you have to be injured in order to be healed. Pigging out on various foods without injury doesn't cut it. If that were the case, earning this trophy would be a breeze.

i would suggest just trying it, i had loads of food items,in my case, i was 3/4 through the game but i placed the game on very easy and just ate every thing, around 200+ items, go to that one place, the boomers camp, they have alot of corn laying around, and eat everything, thats exactly what i did and i got it

 

 

but if youre not seeing any stats for it, fallout NV is a VERY buggy game, probably the reason

  • All HP restoration occurring over time from a consumed item is awarded to this trophy, even if the player is fully healed before the expiration of the items effects. Example: a player who is hurt by 1 point, and consumes a bottle of purified water(+2 points for 5 seconds = 10 points overall) will be awarded 10 points to this.

 

  • HP restoration occurring over time can be stacked, if the player consumes all the food items of his choice at once without leaving his Pip-Boy. However, if they are healed completely by the instantaneous healing effects of the food items they consume, the game will cease tracking the rest of the consumed food towards this trophy.

 

 

 

I hope that helps, oh you need 10k points healed too.
