Trophy Guide

This section will feature tips and videos to help you unlock the trophies. Some need patience and practice to acquire while some can be unlocked as easy as pie. Since there are no collectibles in the game that unlocks a trophy, I suggest playing the campaign on easy mode to acquire most of them. If you're truly hardcore (and insane), you may finish the game in Elite difficulty while attempting to unlock all possible trophies along the way. Obvious and self-explanatory trophies won't be discussed.

Platinum Trophy

Collect All Killzone 3 Trophies

Bronze Trophies

Ready for Battle - Complete Weapons Training

In Your Face - First Brutal Melee

No Witnesses - Destroy All Dropships on the Highway
This can be done in the last section of Chapter 2 (Broken Highway). If you're replaying this chapter to get this trophy, you need to select the previous section (Bilgarsk Museum) so you'll have access to the mini-gun.

After the scene, an allied EXO will lead the advance. After the EXO defeats the Helghan Carrier, you'll get the objective to clear the RPG threat. Look above the bridge ahead and you'll see the first dropship. Aim your mini-gun and shoot it until it is destroyed. Don't worry about the ammo since there are two ammo crates ahead that will ensure you're fully loaded.

Move forward a bit and there will be more higs that will come out of the building to the left. Clear the enemies and look out for the second dropship that will appear shortly ahead, past the overhead road sign. The last two dropships will appear as the convoy moves ahead. Let the allied APC take the lead then wait for the dropships to ascend right ahead. The two of them will appear consecutively so you need to destroy them both fast.


No Witnesses Trophy


Mopping Up  - Kill 40 Helghast foot soldiers
This is the during the first section (Senlin Beach) of Chapter 3. The goal is to kill at least 40 enemy footsoldiers before you head to the next part of this section. Just keep shooting at the enemy formations; use your cannon and turret fire to rack up the body count. If you didn't get this trophy after reaching the main road and where enemy APCs will pursuit you, reload the chapter and try again.


Mopping Up Trophy


Sawn Off – Destroy All Chasing APCs
Destroyed all chasing SawBlade APCs in Senlin Beach section. During the part where you'll get chased by enemy APCs, just keep your eye on the road and concentrate your fire on one APC at a time. This way, you can destroy each quicker. There's only a total of six APCs; just make sure to destroy them all to get this easy bronze trophy.


Sawn Off Trophy


Smoking Wrecks – Destroy all Tanks on Senlin
The four tanks in the area are impossible to miss. Just keep destroying the ones you find to get this trophy.


Smoking Wrecks Trophy


Turn the Tables – Melee Kill a Capture Trooper
A Capture Trooper is an enemy armed only with a blade. Shoot them first as they rush towards you then quickly press L1 once it appears to melee kill them. If you didn't press it fast enough, you'll die. They will only appear if an ordinary helghast soldier sends out a flare after detecting your presence during Chapter 4.


Turn the Tables Trophy


Spiky Personality – Kill a Helghast using a Burster


Spiky Personality Trophy


Minigunned – Destory everything while using a minigun on the Intruder.
Just shoot all the glowing blue targets in the platforms and the last two dropships in the first section of Chapter 5. You should unlock the trophy during the scene and before crashing down.


Minigunned Trophy


Quick Exit – Escape the oil rig quickly
-Got off the 2nd rig within 2 minutes. This is a fairly easy thing to do so long as you know the enemy positions and you move quickly. Refer to the video below for more details.


Quick Exit Trophy


Shattered – Destroy all the glass in the Labs
-Destroyed all the glass panels in the Stahl Arms South labortories.

There are multiple glass panels here that may not be immediately visible. Some may be damaged during the firefight with the higs so just scour the entire room for glass panels before moving to the next.

In the next room after rescuing Narville, there are glass panels in the middle of the room.
In the freezer room, there are glass panels as well.
In the mainframe room, there are several glass panels on ground level. The tricky ones to find are the ones on the second level, on top of the datacenter and the ones on the second level, above where you came from. The others are not hard to miss so refer to the video below to find the ones on the second level.


Shattered Trophy


Pinpoint – Kill the Heavy with an StA-14
Take out the other targets first then aim for the Heavy's head. One or two well-placed shots should be enough to make him expose his tank on his back. Once he does, keep firing until it blows off.


Pinpoint Trophy


Evening the Odds - Kill 500 Helghast

Cagefighter - Kill 10 Helghast with Brutal Melee

Frag Out - Kill 3 Helghast with 1 fragmentation grenade

One Each - Shot and killed 3 Helghast using the shotgun pistol without reloading or switching weapons
Treat the shotgun pistol as an ordinary shotgun. It's deadly at close range but loses its effectiveness as the distance to the target increases.

Eagle Eye - Shot and killed 6 Helghast using the Sniper Rifle without reloading or switching weapons
This is best done when you're supporting the ground troops in destroying the arc  APCs by providing sniper cover. Just take your time and shoot stationary targets until you get 6 kills without switching weapons or reloading.


Eagle Eye Trophy


Power Spike - Used the Boltgun to nail and Helghast to an exploding object
This is yet another tricky trophy to unlock. One of the main challenges here is finding an exploding object and luring an enemy to run/shoot/move in front of it.

Never There Trophy Part 1 of 4



Never There Trophy Part 2 of 4



Never There Trophy Part 3 of 4



Never There Trophy Part 4 of 4


ISA TV – Establish communications
Made contact with Earth

Aerial Superiority – Kill 5 Helghast while in the air
Killed 5 Helghast while airborne using the Jetpack

Into The Lair – Reach the cable car
Reached the cable car and gained access to Stahl Arms South

Jail Break – Liberate Narville
Liberated Narville from Stahl Arms South

Go Down And Stay Down – Destroy the ATAC
Defeated the ATAC outside the Stahl Arms facility

Iced – Destroyed all 4 Helghast Ice-Saws and all 6 Dropships
You can't rely on your machine gun that much so you'll use the homing missiles more often. As soon as you get a lock, shoot your missiles and do it again. If ever a target crosses your reticule, use your MG. Like what the requirement said, you need to destroy 4 enemy Ice Shaws and Dropships to unlock this achievement.


Iced Trophy


You Drive – Drive the Mobile Factory
Took over the controls of the Mobile Factory

Bring It Down – Defeat the MAWLR
Defeated the MAWLR defending the Space Elevator

Completist – Destroy everything on the MAWLR
Destroyed every destructible weapon on the MAWLR while on foot and on the Intruder

This trophy has two parts; first when you attack the MAWLR on foot and the second one and when you're in the intruder. If you were not able to destroy the destructible targets on the MAWLR during the first phase, you won't be able to get the trophy even if you destroyed everything while on the Intruder.

The video below will show you all the destructible targets on foot. The tricky targets of the first phase would be the last set of turrets on the hind part of the MAWLR's body. These will open once the last heat vent opens. As for the second phase, just destroy all turrets you can find. The trophy should unlock as soon as MAWLR is destroyed.


Completist Trophy - Bringing down the giant


Completist Trophy - Bringing down the giant.. for good


Let's Go Home – Destroy Stahl's Cruiser
Destroyed Stahl's Cruiser and left the planet on any difficulty

Frazzle Dazzle – Kill 3 Helghast with one shot from the StA5X Arc Cannon
Used the StA5X Arc Cannon to kill 3 Helghast with one shot
You can do this by fully charging and releasing the projectile towards three enemies clumped together. The Arc Cannon's secondary fire has a deadly AoE (area of effect) field that's capable of destroying enemies without the projectile directly hitting them.

Excessive Force – Used the secondary fire function of the WASP launcher to kill a single Helghast
You can get this trophy immediately as soon as you gain access to WASP turrets. You need to remove the WASP from its mount then go into artillery mode by pressing R3 (right analog). Target one enemy then fire.

Spread The Love – Killed 5 Helghast at once using the secondary fire mode of the WASP launcher
This can be a little tricky since the secondary fire of the WASP covers only a small area and you rarely see up to five enemies clumped together. You may try this as soon as you have access to WASPs in Chapter 5.

Double Trouble – Reach the river in Co-op
Made it to the Corinth River in Co-op mode

Stranded Together – Reach the Extraction Point in Co-op
Made it to the Extraction Point in Co-op mode

Iron Man – Get a kill with the Exo
Killed a player using the Exo in any multiplayer mode
