Trophy Guide

Story related and obvious trophies won't be explained. For trophies with FREE AIM, you have to enable this option from the game menu. Even if you kill all enemies during the fixed sequences, you won't unlock the corresponding trophy unless your targeting is set to FREE AIM. If you're having problems, you may want to adjust your aiming speed and acceleration in the controls option.

It will be easier to do this after clearing the game since soft lock will help a lot in getting through the main story. You can replay the chapters and checkpoints if you need to do them again. After getting the trophy in a particular checkpoint, you can leave the chapter and try another one.

You can also set the difficulty on EASY but don't activate any cheats. For other trophies that doesn't require FREE AIM, setting your targeting to HARD LOCK will definitely help.

Chapter 10, Checkpoint 11. You should set the difficulty to EASY and your aim to HARD LOCK. Its easy to take out the enemies but what you really need to look out for is the part where there are three guys at the end of the tunnel, with the guy that has a rocket launcher in the middle. It seems that the guy to his left can survive the explosion if you managed to shoot the rocket. If possible, try to take out the guy to the left first before the scene where the rocket launcher guy takes his aim takes place. Be careful as well if you trigger bullet time after that specific scene, you won't be able to shoot the rocket and you'll get hit.
