Welcome to the Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness Vietnam DLC Trophy Guide! And Welcome to ‘Nam! This short DLC is set during the Vietnam War and you will find yourself playing as “the Cowboy” trying to to find your buddies and extracting out of the hot zone, after your helicopter crashed.
This DLC can also be played in Coop and features all the neat mechanics from the main game, such as capturing outposts, small mini-tasks, Guns for Hire and a new addition, Air-Strikes. Join the Fun!
Step 1: First Playthrough with Kill-Trophies and rescuing your Buddies
Enjoy your first stay in ‘Nam. Take your time and approach the PoW-Camps carefully, so that you can free your fellow soldiers. Take care of the two kill-related trophies along the way.
Welcome to Nam
Leave no one behind
Make them count
Step 2: Second Playthrough on Survivor Mode
In Survivor Mode, you will have less health and a smaller inventory. Blast across the map until you find a vehicle and make your way to the final battle.
Step 3: Third Playthrough in Action Movie Mode
In Action Movie Mode, you’ll have four weapon slots and don’t have to deal with the AA-Guns but can use Airstrikes at all times. Should make an even faster run than the two previous ones.

So I completed this DLC twice. The first on Action Movie mode in which I saved like 3 people from the crew. The second time I played on survivor and I didn’t save any crew memebers. I did all this and I still haven’t gotten the trophy for completing the game (Wendell’s Story). Any advice?
Reinstalling the game and downloading the DLC again often fixes trophy issues.
That’s the best bet. Also delete all save games associated with the game (of course make a backup on USB beforehand so you can restore it later).
The trophy is obtainable so it seems like a case of something gone wrong during trophy set installation.
Update: apparently, you must play on Normal Mode to get that trophy. Though I have no idea how you could start in Action Movie Mode and Survivor Mode. Those games are supposed to be locked until beating it in Normal Mode first.
Hmm Powerpyx, two issues:
1. The survivor mode can be played in the 1st playthrough.
2. What Steven A said above, when i finished the survivor mode for the 1st time, it doesn’t unlock the trophy “Wendell’s Story”, only unlock “roguelike”, so that is: maybe until Ubi release patch, we need 3 minimum playthroughs
And when I played 2nd time on standard mode, the trophy”Wendell’s Story” poped up
interesting that you both could play on Survivor the first time.
When I started the DLC, I had no option for choosing the difficulty. When I finished the first time, I had an on-screen-message telling me that now Survivor and Movie Modes are unlocked an playable.
Just tried it with a second account and couldn’t select any other difficulty from the start either.
Checked about 20 players on psnprofiles and everyone did three runs.
Have you played in someone else’s Coop-Game by any chance?
Have there been any FC5-Main-Game-Events which promised such an unlock?
Have joined someone else’s coop for the main base game but not for DLC, and i can choose difficulty for survivor for the 1st time, and 2nd run for standard, 3rd run for the action movie
the same thing happened to me, so if I make a second Standard RUN, will I unlock the trophy?

Same here Daniel. I played Normal mode for my third playthrough and did 97% of the challenges and that’s when the “Wendell’s story” trophy popped. Thank you for the reply Powerpyx.
I still don’t know how or why you guys could start on a different difficulty though o_O
dalailama1989 and I tested this and it doesn’t work for us on any account. We tried with a platinum save game and fresh game install. People on PSNP needed 3 runs according to their trophy profile and got Wendell’s story first.
There’s just no difficulty select to begin with for anyone I talked to. Not sure why it’s different for you guys.
Steven A. says
That is strange because I downloaded the dlc as early as I could, and I was able to play any difficulty I wanted for my first playthrough. They probably have it patched by now but yes I do think you need to do 3 playthroughs. Maybe one of them has to be normal. Hope it fixes soon. Thank you again for the guide and the reply. As to those who shared their troubles with the trophy as well. Happy hunting!
Hi thanks for your guides! I have the same problem. I played my 1st playthrough on Action Movie and got 80s Hero but not the Wendell’s Story. I think they want us to play 3 times for the different difficulties to get them all. That sucks!
Do you have the EU or US-version (or any other region)?
I’m starting to think this two/three-runs issue might be across regions.
EU version. And yes I had to play 3 runs to get each trophy.
I still need the co-op trophy on the base game. I’m on PS4. My psn is theterrorhawk89. Anyone care to help me out?
If I will play the survivor mode in coop, will i still get the trophy? 🙂
