Trophies/Achievements

Trophy/Achievement Guide, Part 1

Kingpin

This is the platinum trophy for the Playstation versions of the game and will require you to get every other non-DLC trophy. Overall, the game isn’t too bad and doesn’t have any outstanding difficult trophies, aside from completing all of the challenges (the gold on the activities can be annoying). It will take at least 40 hours to get the platinum due to Fourth and Forty.

The only thing you have to watch out for are the two missable trophies/achievements, which are Saints & Sensibility and You Chose… Poorly .

Saints & Sensibility

This trophy/achievement is MISSABLE due to not being able to redo the final story mission, Grand Finale, over again. After doing Batteries Not Included , make sure you clean up by doing every side mission in the game for all of your friends, which includes the Loyalty Missions as well. You should be fine as long as you save after getting all of the individual character trophies/achievements.

Half Way Home & How It Should Be

Each section of the city has plenty of activities to do and you will need to complete all of the following in order to get How It Should Be:

  • Hack every store
  • Complete every instance of every activity (Fraud, Blazin, all Rifts, Genki's M.O.M., all kinds of Mayhem, Fight Club)
  • Climb and activate all five Alien Towers
  • Clear every Flashpoint
  • Clear every Hotspot
  • Every Virus Injection and Virus Collection
  • Do all Security Deletions (the assassinations)
If you want all of the trophies/achievements, then you will need to do all of the side missions for your friends/homies. Doing all of these will complete all of the above, but you can also do it on your own (the progress done will also count towards the missions).

3131

3135

3139

You have to do all of Gat’s side missions, his Loyalty Mission, as well as "romance" with him to unlock this. All of the missions, including the Loyalty one, are unlocked after completing Welcome Back .

3140

And I Ran…

Super Sprint is one of the two powers you first get in the game and allows you to run a lot faster than driving a car. However, 250,000 meters is a lot and you will likely not get this as you progress through the game. Normally, using Super Sprint will deplete your stamina bar (the white one next to your health), but if you finish the Executive Orders side mission for Keith David (his second one), you get the Unlimited Sprinting upgrade as your reward.

3141

Don’t Look Down

Super Jump is one of the first two powers you will get in the beginning of the game, along with Super Sprint. This should come naturally as you play through the main story and try getting most of the other trophies/achievements, as you will be jumping quite often (or should be at least). If not, then keep jumping as you move from place to place until it pops.

3142

One of the best spots to get kills is the Virus Injection that is part of Pierce’s side mission, Back to Basics . You have to kill 101 Genki mascots, who die in one hit from anything. If you’ve already done that, try either the medium or hard instance of Fight Club, as they both have a King of the Hill round; stay out of the green circle and keep killing.

Chill Out

The very first power you will get for attacking is Blast, with the freeze element. This power, when used and it hits the enemy, will freeze them in place for a few seconds. You will need to either shoot them or melee them while frozen to shatter the enemies. You know you did it right when you see "Shatter Kill" pop up on the screen.

3143

Pounding the Pavement

You will acquire the Stomp power after defeating the Warden in The Warden Stomp. On the ground, you simply stomp it, but you can rapidly descend by using it in the air. The only problem with this is that it’s not particularly strong and it will take more than one Stomp to kill an enemy. That means you will have to soften up the enemies before using a Stomp or using it multiple times.

3144

Here! Catch!

The Telekinesis power is your second attacking power in the game and allows you to pick up and throw things/people with your mind. The normal aliens should die in one hit if you pick them up and toss them at a wall of some kind.

3145

Bringin’ the Heat

Buff is the fourth attacking power you will get in the game and allows you to imbue your bullets and body with the power of fire, setting enemies ablaze if you shoot them or get near them. Once you activate the power, simply walk close to the aliens or shoot them with a weapon. Note that only aliens count for this trophy/achievement, and not police or Genki mascots.
