Swordmaster (Silver) - Perfectly parry Rafe in the sword fight without getting slashed or stabbed
In Chapter 22, you will fight Rafe one-on-one in duel with some swords. In order to get this trophy, you need to complete this duel without getting slashed or stabbed by him. The fight is split into three sections, with the beginning and end being very easy, as Rafe will always attack using the same motions.
You are able to dodge his attacks using both the Triangle and Circle buttons; Triangle dodging/blocking attacks from the left and Circle dodging/blocking attacks from the right. Depending on the difficulty you set, Rafe's swings will either be slow or quick. Setting it to Explorer difficulty will make things a lot more manageable, as well as using the Slow Motion cheat, if you've already beaten the game. Additionally, should you get hit by Rafe, then you can simply reload the last checkpoint instead of starting the encounter from the very beginning.
As for the actual battle, the beginning part is scripted as far as Rafe's attacks:
- Left, then Right
- Left, Right and then Left
After the last set of attacks above, you will end up grabbing a sword and starting the second stage. This portion of the fight is definitely the hardest part, as Rafe's attacks can come from any angle. Block his attacks and then retaliate whenever you see the Square button appear on your screen. You'll eventually get into some scripted clashes with Rafe, which is what you want (escape with Triangle).
Keep doing this until you come to the final portion of the battle, with Nathan on the ground and after Sam slides you a sword. This part is scripted, as Rafe will attack from the same directions, similar to the opening:
- Left, Right, Left, Left, Left, Left
- Button Mash
- Left, Right, Left and then the end of the battle
If you're doing this during the actual chapter, the trophy will pop once you start swimming. Otherwise, the trophy will appear whenever you reach the selection box to restart the encounter or go back to the main menu.
