Introduction

Welcome to the MotoGP™21 trophy guide!
Milestone have introduced Junior Teams for the first time in the MotoGP gaming franchise for this year, which adds a little bit extra to a game that always guaranteed to please the enthusiasts. Gameplay wise we are looking at something very similar to last year, with some slight adjustments along the way.

Roadmap

Step 1: Time Trial
Use this as a tutorial, or a practice to get used to any new mechanics this years game may have. You can of course complete this in one session, or split it up if you’re getting bored of running one track over and over.

Make sure that each of the 25 laps you need to complete are “valid laps”, or this will take longer than it is supposed too.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Bronze Race Pace
Silver Perfectionist

Step 2: Career Mode – Part 1 (Moto3 & Moto2)
As with most of these types of games, it is best to start out with the lower tiers and then work your way up. Races range from 4-6 laps depending on the track, and there are a number of things you will want to look out for on the initial parts of starting your career path, which you will need to do until you have unlocked the relevant trophies.

  • Turn on Tire Wear and Fuel Consumption
  • Complete 5 valid laps during a Free Practice
  • Reach your Qualifying & Race objective 15 times in Career Mode
  • Complete one Manual Start
  • Set up your Junior Team

Your Junior Team can be set up once you have hit at least 200,000 reputation, which will be sometime during your Moto2 championship. You’ll need to set the team up prior to finishing this season.
You will also need to ensure that you have signed with a new team (if moving up to a different class), prior to week 40.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Clean Riding
Bronze Last Chance
Bronze Pole Position Genius
Bronze A Leader Not By Chance
Bronze Long Lap
Bronze Pedal to the Metal
Bronze Recruiter
Bronze Professional Tester
Bronze Negotiator
Bronze Businessman
Silver Down To The Last Drop
Silver Stopwatch Genius
Silver As Per The Contract
Silver Moto3™ Champion
Silver Moto2™ Champion

You will also earn all all but 3 of the track related trophies, as part of the “Full Calendar” –

Bronze Victory at Losail / Bronze Victory at Chang / Bronze Victory at Austin / Bronze Victory at Termas
Bronze Victory at Jerez / Bronze Victory at Le Mans / Bronze Victory at Mugello
Bronze Victory at Catalunya / Bronze Victory at Sachsenring / Bronze Victory at Assen
Bronze Victory at KymiRing / Bronze Victory at Spielberg / Bronze Victory at Silverstone
Bronze Victory at Misano / Bronze Victory at Aragon / Bronze Victory at Motegi
Bronze Victory at Phillip Island / Bronze Victory at Sepang / Bronze Victory at Valencia

Step 3: Career Mode – Part 2 (MotoGP & Junior Team)
You’re going to need at least 2 (probably 3) full seasons within MotoGP whilst building up you Junior Team. During the first season just concentrate on lowering the cost base of the Junior Team, whilst ensuring you stay in the black financially. It is also recommended that you only employ one rider during your first season.
The Second/Third season is where you ramp up the performance and make a run at the title.

Just remember the following while you progress.

  • Complete at least 1 valid lap with each development package during the Winter Tests
  • Beat the time threshold with both bikes during the Mid-Season Tests

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Tester
Bronze A Difficult Choice

Bronze World Championship Star
Bronze Two Consecutive Wins
Silver Top Performance
Silver Investor
Silver Young Promises
Silver Research & Development
Gold MotoGP™ Champion

Step 4: Misc Races
The calendar within MotoGP does not include all tracks in the game during the career run, so you’ll need to set up some quick 3 lap races to knock these ones out.

Bronze Victory at Brno
Bronze
Victory at Donington
Bronze Victory at Laguna Seca

Step 5: Multiplayer
A simple multiplayer once again that can be boosted with one other. Only one player actually has to race, so self boosting is also possible here. You’ll also need to ensure you “Complete a multiplayer race wearing your custom helmet”, and you’re all done.

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Bronze Show Off
Gold Good Game!
40-platinum MotoGP™21

Last Chance
Obtain access to Qualifying 2 in Grand Prix, Championship or Career mode

In order to obtain access to Qualifying 2, you will first need to fall into the Qualifying 1 session, and then set the fastest time there.

This can easily be done by not participating in any of the Free Practice sessions, and therefore automatically placing you into Qualifying 1.

Pole Position Genius
Obtain the Pole Position in Grand Prix, Championship or Career mode

Setting the fastest lap in Qualifying will get you that coveted Pole Position.

As with all trophies in this game, you can lower the AI difficulty to 20%, if you are having any troubles.

A Leader Not By Chance
Achieve the Pole Position and win a Race in Grand Prix, Championship or Career mode

If you’re achieving the Pole Position in Qualifying it means you’re the fastest racer out there! Now go out and win the race too.

As with all trophies in this game, you can lower the AI difficulty to 20%, if you are having any troubles.

Long Lap
Serve the penalty by racing in the Long Lap Penalty lane

This can be done during race, or practice. After your 5th warning for exceeding track limits (cutting corners) you will be served with a Long Lap penalty. This would mean that you would need to go around the outside of a designated corner, and stay within track limits there.

After being served the penalty, you will have 3 laps to complete this, or you will be disqualified. If you happen to get this penalty during a race, and you do not have enough laps left to complete it, then you will be served with a 5 second penalty at the end of the race (which will not count for the trophy).

Pedal to the Metal
Execute a manual start without receiving warnings

Manual Starts can be toggled on/off prior to any race within the Riding Aids screen, and in order to achieve this one you simply need to stay away from the throttle () until the red light goes out.

There is no real need to hold the clutch in with the , however you can if you wish.

Clean Riding
Complete 5 valid laps during a Free Practice session

If there is a particular track that you feel you are going to struggle with, then take advantage of the practice sessions to get used to it a bit more.

These 5 laps do not have to be consecutive, but they do have to be “valid” ones.

Tester
Complete at least 1 valid lap with each development package during the Winter Tests

The “Winter Test” is a preseason testing phase prior to the MotoGP career calendar starting. During this weekend you will have the choice of 3 new bikes to try out.

All you’ll need to do is complete one valid lap on each bike, and the trophy will be yours.

Recruiter
Change your Personal Manager, Chief Engineer and Telemetrist at least once in Career mode

This can be done at any point throughout your career, and can be completed in-between any of the races. As soon as you have enough money to sign a new staff member on, and you have someone willing to come, feel free to sign them up.

Show Off
Complete a multiplayer race wearing your custom helmet

When you enter the Multiplayer Lobby you will have the option to select Official Rider, or Official Team. Selecting an Official Team will result in your custom rider participating in the race, and therefore your custom helmet.

You will need to “Share” your original creation in order for it to be available online. This can be done whilst saving any changes.

A Difficult Choice
Beat the time threshold with both bikes during the Mid-Season Tests

When you come across the mid season test make sure you try out both bikes before finishing the weekend. You will also need to beat the time threshold set, but this is not difficult in the slightest.

Race Pace
Complete 5 consecutive valid laps in Time Trial mode

Completing 5 consecutive valid laps in Time Trial, is actually fairly tricky for a newcomer, as with the slightest movement off of the track, or a crash, your lap will become invalid.

You will need to complete 25 laps in total within Time Trial for Silver Perfectionist, so do not stress too much about this. There is also a little trick to keep your streak going, as you are able to pause and “Restart Flying Lap” if you do happen to crash, or go off of the circuit. This will keep your streak alive, and help you on your way to achieving this.

Professional Tester
Complete all Development Tests during a weekend as a rider in Career mode

This one can be a little bit glitchy, as I’m sure I completed this on multiple occasions before it actually unlocked.

During any Free Practice session head into the Development Test and take a look at the requirements. There are a number of different objectives, that are constantly changing from race to race, so simply go for one you feel comfortable with.

In the example below the race counted as a session, so I was able to complete this over one Free Practice session, the Qualifying, and the Race.

Negotiator
Ensure that a Team accepts your counter proposal during a negotiation in Career mode

As you will be moving up the classes during your career, you should think about pushing back just a little on the first contract offer.

All you need to do is adjust any of the parts of the contract slightly and then wait another week for them to come back to you. Don’t push your luck too much here…

Two Consecutive Wins
Meet the Team’s objective with both riders of your Junior Team during a GP

See Silver Young Promises.

Businessman
Earn 1,000,000 Credits in Career Mode

If you qualify first, and win all of your races within the first 2 seasons, then you will more than likely unlock this after winning the Moto2 championship. This will come naturally on your way to the platinum.

World Championship Star
Reach a Reputation level higher than 500,000 as a rider in Career mode

This should come automatically during your first season on a MotoGP bike (third season overall), around the mid way point of the season.

Down To The Last Drop Gold
Complete 10 races with Tire Wear and Fuel Consumption in Grand Prix, Championship or Career mode

This trophy actually glitched a little on me, as it unlocked after the second race. That being said it is not a difficult one to obtain anyway.

Tire Wear and Fuel Consumption can be toggled on/off at any point prior to starting a race, so just have it on in your career mode to start with, and then switch off once the trophy has been earned.

Research & Development Gold
Complete the bike’s development in the MotoGP™ category in Career mode

Development begins from the moment you start out the game. You progress towards completing the development is carried through your entire career, so it is best to start out from the very first race.

For every race weekend I found the best possible way to earn development credits was to do at least one lap in Free Practice One, rather than just skipping straight to the qualification round. This way you are earning more performance credits.
Remember to take a look at what is needed at the particular weekend (Bronze Professional Tester), as you should be able to knock a couple out within one lap.

Continue to move your staff amongst the sections to ensure you have enough credits building up.

You can expect to earn this towards the end of your fourth season.

Top Performance Gold
Complete the development of one of your Junior Team’s bikes in Career mode

See Silver Young Promises.

Investor Gold
Complete the development of your Junior Team in Career mode

See Silver Young Promises.

Perfectionist Gold
Complete 25 valid laps in Time Trial mode

Completing consecutive valid laps in Time Trial, is actually fairly tricky for a newcomer, as with the slightest movement off of the track, or a crash, your lap will become invalid.

You will need to complete 25 “valid laps” in total within Time Trial, which can be fairly tricky for a newcomer, as with the slightest movement off of the track, or a crash, your lap will become invalid.

There is a little trick, as you are able to pause and “Restart Flying Lap” if you do happen to crash, or go off of the circuit.

Stopwatch Genius Gold
Reach your Qualifying objective 15 times in Career Mode

The qualifying objective will differ depending on your team. If you stick with qualifying throughout your Moto3™ playthrough, then you would have this prior to the end of the season.

Your first objective will most likely be “qualify on the first four rows”, which means you need to qualify at least twelfth.

As Per The Contract Gold
Reach your Race objective 15 times in Career Mode

The race objective will differ depending on your team. During you initial Moto3™ playthrough your objective will most likely be “finish at least twelfth.

You would have this prior to the end of the first season.

Young Promises Gold
Win 1 Riders Championship with your Junior Team

Your Junior Team can be set up once you have hit at least 200,000 reputation, which will be sometime during your Moto2 championship. You’ll need to set the team up prior to finishing this season, and prior to entering MotoGP for the first time.

It is not recommended that you have a Junior Team whilst in any other class than MotoGP, as you will not be able to cope financially.

All the Junior Team related trophies are a patient waiting game. You need to concentrate on lowering the cost of running the outfit in the first instance, rather than going for bike/rider development. In your first season hire the worst possible rider, and take a contract with a sponsor with the lowest requirements. This will help you build up your reputation, and slowly build up the team too.

You will need to complete a minimum of 2-3 MotoGP championships to get this trophy, as racing there gives you more credits. Ensure that you are always qualifying first, and winning the race. Eventually you will be in a position to go for this trophy by hiring the best available riders, whilst having a strong team built up from the ground.

Moto3™ Champion Gold
Win the Moto3™ Championship in Career mode as a rider

This trophy will pop when it is mathematically impossible for anyone to catch your points tally before the season finishes. You do not have to wait till the end of the season for it to pop.

Although not necessary, I would advise to pick the “Full Calendar” to get as many track related trophies done, rather than COVID adjusted season (Official 2021 Calendar), which is slightly shorter.

Moto2™ Champion Gold
Win the Moto2™ Championship in Career mode as a rider

This trophy will pop when it is mathematically impossible for anyone to catch your points tally before the season finishes. You do not have to wait till the end of the season for it to pop.

You can start your career in Moto2™ if you wish, however to get to grips with the game it’s recommended to work your way through. You also need to continue on one career in order for your reputation to build for Bronze World Championship Star.

Although not necessary, I would advise to pick the “Full Calendar” to get as many track related trophies done, rather than COVID adjusted season (Official 2021 Calendar), which is slightly shorter.

Good Game! Gold
Complete 25 multiplayer games

This can be boosted with a partner in Private Matches, and only one needs to finish the race in order for it to count. You can lower the race distance to 15% (3 laps) to make this slightly quicker.

As per the normal in these multiplayer ones; if you are looking to get this done as quick as possible keep racing round the Sachsenring (Germany), as this has the quicker lap times. You can expect to spend around 2.5 hours on this one alone.

Boosting is not possible between PS5 & PS4, as the lobbies are separate.

MotoGP™ Champion Gold
Win the MotoGP™ Championship in Career mode as a rider

This trophy will pop when it is mathematically impossible for anyone to catch your points tally before the season finishes. You do not have to wait till the end of the season for it to pop.

You can start your career in MotoGP™ if you wish, however to get to grips with the game it’s recommended to work your way through. You also need to continue on one career in order for your reputation to build for Bronze World Championship Star.

Although not necessary, I would advise to pick the “Full Calendar” to get as many track related trophies done, rather than COVID adjusted season (Official 2021 Calendar), which is slightly shorter.
