    Step 1: Run The Pit, Kill Clowns, and Shoot Shepherd In The Face

    - Advertisement -

    Might as well get one of the toughest trophies done now! When you run the pit, you have to get a clear time of under 19.7seconds. It’ll take practice, skill, and some good RNG. Before you run the pit though, make sure to look check out the Bronze Clown In Training trophy and Bronze Precognitive Paranoia trophy and get the piece of intel in the level. After you run the pit, these will be inaccessible unless you restart the level. If you do everything in “S.S.D.D” now, you’ll never have to play it again.

    You’ll be earning these trophies:

    Bronze Back in the Saddle
    Bronze Pit Boss
    Silver The Student Surpasses the Master
    Bronze Precognitive Paranoia
    Bronze Clown in Training

    Step 2: Play the game on veteran difficulty

    Time to get this out of the way first. The game is tough in some sections, but if you take your time, you’ll make it. Always move slowly and peak around cover slowly when you can. Learn enemy positions, use flashbangs, never use a shotgun. Once you finish this, you’ll have a big bulk of the trophies.

    Step 4: Immortal Run on Easy and Intel collectibles

    At this point, all you’ll need to do is finish every level without dying or reloading a checkpoint, and getting the intel. You have to keep track of what levels you do without dying, yourself. The game has no way to track for you. This is very easy and should only take 3-5 hours depending on how fast you go.

    During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:

    Bronze The Road Less Traveled
    Bronze No Stone Unturned
    Is That All You Got?

    The Price of WarGold
    Complete the single-player campaign on Hardened or Veteran difficulty.

    This will come automatically once you beat the game on Veteran. Or hardened, but you need all the missions on Veteran anyways. Veteran difficulty can be rough in some spots. So long as you take it slow, you’ll be okay. The best thing to do to kill some enemies is to go prone and peak out of cover. You’d be surprised how well this works. Cook your grenades before you throw them! That way enemies can’t run away or toss them back. Some portions will be a lot of trial and error. Just be ready. Also, there are still spawn closets in this version. So if enemies keep appearing, you have to move up whenever you can to stop them from spawning. You can also auto-aim to targets by tapping . This is extremely useful for this difficulty. Never go full auto either. Short controlled bursts are the way to go, all the time.

    Plant the C4 in ‘Cliffhanger’ without alerting or injuring anyone in the blizzard.

    During the first half of “Cliffhanger”, you’ll need to plant a C4 charge on a fuel tank. You have to do this WITHOUT KILLING OR BEING NOTICED. If you do either, restart the checkpoint. But! The requirements start once you hit the blizzard where you can’t see anything. Using the heartbeat monitor and being aware of everything is crucial to this. It’s not as bad as it sounds, but it’s also not super easy. Once you plant the C4, you get the trophy if you didn’t get noticed or kill anyone in the blizzard. You can restart the checkpoints anytime you get caught and not void the trophy. Here a good video for reference (he also get upscale-245262160018212 The Real Gun Game trophy)

    Colonel Sanderson
    Kill 7 chickens in under 10 seconds in ‘The Hornet’s Nest’.

    In “The Hornet’s Near”, you’ll hit a market Square that has a ton of chickens in cages. You have to kill 7 in 10 seconds. Take the time to CAREFULLY clear out enemies with gunfire, then push forward till you get a checkpoint. Once you get a checkpoint, double back and figure out where 7 chickens are, in easy to access cages, then kill them in the allotted time! If you fail, reload the checkpoint that you have in the middle of it all, and try again.

    Ten plus foot-mobile
    Kill at least 10 enemies with one Predator Missile.

    In “Wolverines” you’ll have a predator missile near the end. When Sgt. Folly gets to Burgertown, use the predator missile, and you’ll see a bunch of enemies all clumped up, so you’ll have many opportunities for this. Slam a missile right into the groups and you should get this no problem.

    Unnecessary Roughness
    Use a Riot shield to beat down an enemy.

    The first time you find a riot shield is in the very controversial mission “No Russian”. When fighting the enemies outside, they use a riot shield. Kill one, pick it up, and melee another. Quick and easy. If you choose to turn off the option to play “No Russian”, then you’ll be able to scoop this up in “The Gulag”

    Kill 4 enemies with 4 shots during a slow-mo breach.

    At the start of the mission “The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday”, you’ll need to breach into a room. This goes slow motion, and a bullet kills an enemy. In this first room, there are 6 enemies. Breach from the left side so you’re in the face of at least 3. One-shot for each target, and the trophy will pop.

    Some Like it Hot
    Kill 6 enemies in a row using a thermal weapon.

    In “Wolverines” you have to climb onto a rooftop with a sentry turret. There will be an EBR with a thermal scope on it. It’s recommended you use this, as enemies come through smoke, and it’s the easiest way to see them. Get 6 kills without switching weapons and the trophy is yours.

    Two Birds With One Stone
    Kill 2 enemies with a single bullet.

    All you gotta do is kill 2 enemies with 1 bullet to get this. Chances are you’ll get it without even trying!

    The Road Less Traveled
    Collect 22 enemy intel items.

    Collect 22 of the collectibles this will be yours. See Leave No Stone Unturned for a video reference

    Leave No Stone Unturned
    Collect 45 enemy intel items.

    Collecting all 45 of the Intel collectibles will get you this trophy. Luckily, no Intel location has changed, so any old guide is still relevant to this day! Refer to the video below for one!

    Drive By
    Kill 20 enemies in a row while driving a vehicle.

    At the end of “Cliffhanger”, you’ll be tasked with riding a snowmobile. You use as the throttle and hold to shoot your gun. Simply kill everyone on a snowmobile and this will pop during the chase scene.

    The Harder They Fall
    Kill 2 rappelling enemies in a row before they land on their feet.

    In the mission “Whiskey Hotel”, you go through a room with some news equipment and a podium. There are doors that lead outside. If you go outside, you’ll see the side of the building in front of you has 3 rappel lines. 3 enemies come from there. You can either shoot them or switch to your grenade launcher and hit them all at once. You can reload the checkpoint if you fail.

    Kill 5 enemies in a row using 5 different weapons or attachments.

    This is simple to achieve in “The Gulag” mission. Eventually, you hit an armory with a big assortment of guns. Grab one, kill 1 enemy, grab a new gun, kill 1 enemy, and rinse and repeat until the trophy unlocks!

    Look Ma Two Hands
    Kill 10 enemies in a row using akimbo weapons.

    Load up “The Gulag” on the easiest difficulty. Play through until you hit the armory room. There is a set of pistols here that you can akimbo. You can start shooting the enemies while you’re waiting for the doors to open, but don’t go crazy. There’s not much ammo for them and once you start firing like a mad man, it goes quick. Without changing weapons, or using anything else, grenades, or melee, kill 10 enemies with the akimbo pistols and the trophy is yours.

    No Rest For the Wary
    Knife an enemy without him ever knowing you were there.

    This can be obtained while going for Ghost, so long as you reload checkpoint after. In “Cliffhanger”, while in the blizzard, sneak up behind an enemy, which is very easy to do, and melee him, and the trophy should unlock!

    Kill at least 3 enemies with a single shot from a grenade launcher.

    In “Team Player”, as you leave the school, and go down the alley, there’ll be a gate on your right, and about 6 enemies will rush out. Switch to your grenade launcher by hitting left on the d-pad and fire into them. If you killed 3, the trophy pops. If not, restart checkpoint and try again.

    Target Confirmed
    Instruct the Honey Badger to kill 80 enemies in ‘Exodus’.

    This trophy isn’t so much hard, as it is annoying. You certainly need to play on easy, and then load up “Exodus”. Then hit right on the d-pad and aim at the enemies and hit to instruct the Honey Badger to attack things. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won’t, and sometimes it won’t hit the enemies at all. Just slowly move forward and try to get the Honey Badger to kill everything. I got this just before I crossed the first bridge in the level.

    Angel Savior
    Do not get your Predator Drone destroyed in ‘Contingency’.

    In “Contingency”, after you do the sneaking portion, you’ll be on a hill overlooking a broken village. Captain Price will tell you about the predator missile you can use. DONT USE IT! Instead, slide down the hill and start fighting the enemies, and this trophy will pop.

    Do NOT push this button upscale-245262160018212
    Ring the red bell in both rooms and survive the attack.

    This trophy is a fun little one. Once you unlock the “Museum” you have to go into it and essentially “beat it”. There are 3 rooms. Two side ones, and a middle one. Where you start, we’ll call the left room, the one you hide is, in the backroom, and the other is the right room. Starting off, I grabbed the ACR and the Barret .50 Cal from the cases. I then practiced each room. We’re gonna start with the right. This one has a juggernaut in it. Not to bad with the .50 cal though. Hit the button, and haul ass to the back room, go to the right and get up on the tank, between it and the wall. This is your safe haven. You can kill enemies from here without taking much damage and grenades won’t affect you. Pick off the enemies with the sniper, and if the music is still going, carefully look around for more. Now for the left room. This one starts with a dog and has 2 riot shield enemies. Hit the button, run to the hallway, and look behind you, kill the dog, and get to the tank. I honestly found the left room harder. Now slowly pick away at the enemies. When you see a riot shield, hit them with a flash grenade, then sniper. Use the same tactics as the last room, and you’ll come out on top. You HAVE to clear both rooms in 1 life for this trophy. Refer to my video underneath on how I did it.

    The Student Surpasses the Masterupscale-245262160018212
    Beat BX time in ‘S.S.D.D.’.

    This trophy is the difference between platinum, and no platinum. For this, you have to run the pit in 19.7 seconds. That requires going fast, not hitting any civilian targets, and hitting multiple targets with one bullet to get a 150%+ accuracy bonus. This is skill and RNG. RNG because you have to hope the targets spawn in the right spot to line up well! Practice makes perfect! Refer to the video below to see me fail over and over and over, and some general tips!

    The Real Gun Gameupscale-245262160018212
    Complete any mission but ‘S.S.D.D.’ and ‘Endgame’ without reloading weapons or using melee attacks.

    This is easier than it sounds. I suggest “Cliffhanger” because, by the time you actually have to kill enemies, you can pick their weapons up. Make sure you keep an eye on your ammo count at all times, switch our any weapon almost out of ammo in a clip, and keep a weapon with a full magazine for the last section after you slide down the slope, as the five enemies that appear at the top can ruin it. You can restart the checkpoint if you reload your gun or melee, and it won’t void the trophy.
    If you need help, check Ghost trophy for a video reference.

    Precognitive Paranoia
    Kill Shepherd.

    In “S.S.D.D”, just before you run “The Pit”, look at the starting gate, then look up and you can see Shepherd. Now shoot him in his smug face! You will get a nice trophy for doing so!

    Complete every mission without dying or reloading to a checkpoint at any difficulty.

    The easiest way to get this trophy is to play the game on easy. The odds of you dying are slim to none. Especially if you’ve beaten Veteran. After you beat a level without dying, you can always back up your save just incase. Once you finish every level with no deaths, you get the trophy! The level that will probably be the hardest is “Cliffhanger” with the snowmobile section, as one tree can ruin the no death run of the level. You also have to keep track of what levels you’ve done yourself, as there are no in-game indicators.

    Silent Skies
    Destroy both BTRs without using Predator Drones in ‘Wolverines!’

    This is done in “Wolverines” and I recommend doing it on easy. Eventually, you will be tasked with defending a rooftop, from enemies from the south or the north. When the enemies are coming from the north, they will carry RPGs. Find one and grab it. Then, go back up to the rooftop to the ammo crate and refill your ammo. After you defeat all the enemies, you will be told that two BTRs are coming from the north. Find them and blow them up with the RPG. This trophy will be yours after that.

    Kill 11 enemies using Claymores in ‘Loose Ends’.

    Play “Loose Ends” on Easy to get this trophy with no hassle. Killing 11 enemies with claymores is pretty easy, but you only get 10. There’s luckily a ton of enemies always clumped together on this level. When you hit the front of the mansion, 2 trucks show up with enemies in them. Lay a Claymore between them, and chase the other enemies with some. After you start the DSM download, you’ll get told to put down claymores. Don’t do that. Instead, wait and you’ll hear of enemy helicopters. Go out from and turn left and you’ll see a mass of enemies coming towards you. Get close and lay a Claymore down then run. It should clear out quite a few enemies. Then chase the rest down and lay claymores down near them, and after 11 kills, the trophy will pop.

    Bird Hunterupscale-245262160018212
    Destroy 10 choppers using the Javelin Launcher in ‘Of Their Own Accord’.

    This is gotten on “Of Their Own Accord”, and it suggested the easiest difficulty. Now, this trophy is kind of a pain. Once you get through the building and take over the Crows nest, that’s filled with Javelin rockets, but up your save. Now, there are 5 helicopters that appear right away. I took my time and they never disappeared, but that’s what the back up save is for. So take out the first 5. Some you may have to stand in awkward positions for. There should only be 3 ground vehicles left. Now use the sniper. Now 5 more show up. After you shoot down 3 with the javelin, the game makes you drop it, and you have to pick up a different one, just to destroy the last two. If you feel you missed it. Redownload your backup save and try again. Remember, follow the arrows on your Javelin screen. After all 10 are destroyed, the trophy pops.

    Hot Potato
    Destroy the helicopter using frag grenades in ‘The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday’.

    In “The Only Easy Day… was Yesterday”, you’ll eventually be attacked by a helicopter after you rescue your second set of hostages. Now, you HAVE to kill this with a frag grenade. To do this, hold R1 for 4-6 seconds, depending on how far away the helicopter is, and throw the grenade at it. It takes about 2 grenades to blow it up on Easy, which is the difficulty this should be done on. Luckily, there’s a checkpoint just before it appears, in case you mess up. Once it goes boom, the trophy unlocks.

    Clown in Training
    The U.S. Army Rangers ain’t no place for clowns.

    In “S.S.D.D”, there are 3 clown figures you have to break with a sniper rifle. The sniper only has 3 shots as well, so if you miss, you have to reload the checkpoint. As the locations are hard to explain, refer to this video below. Credit to PS4Trophies for the video!

    Kill an enemy with the impact damage from a frag grenade to the head.

    This is seemingly luck based in a sense. To get this you have to first injure an enemy. When they’re injured they’re either crawling on the ground away from you or in the last stand with a pistol. When they’re in either of these positions, cook a grenade, aim at their head, and throw it. If it smacks their head, and they die, the trophy is all yours!
