Picking up immediately where Resistance: Fall of Man concluded, Resistance 2 follows Nathan Hale as he finds himself once more in a world transformed by war and invasion. Undaunted by their defeat in London, the Chimera have continued to advance and are now poised to attack the United States. Entire cities have been leveled and communities annihilated. In this war where the odds are so heavily stacked against the human race, few are left who are willing and able to fight. Fortunately, Hale is not alone. A group of super soldiers known as the Sentinels will fight alongside Hale as they collectively attempt to thwart the inevitable.
Players will once again step into the war-torn boots of Nathan Hale, who not only faces near impossible odds on the battlefield, but also constantly struggles with the Chimeran virus raging inside his own body. In addition to an epic single-player campaign, Resistance 2 offers a truly unprecedented eight-player, class-based online co-op campaign with a separate, parallel storyline and 60-player online competitive multiplayer built upon a massive battles, greater intimacy mantra. Players can also visit a re-designed MyResistance.net, featuring social networking tools designed to enhance a user's gameplay experience whether they’re engaged in single, co-op or competitive combat.

Known Glitched Trophies: 1* (possible)
*While the trophy itself isn't glitched, the process of acquiring
Killing Machine is. This requires you to total 10,000 kills in online competitve games, however, it is a widely recorded problem that sometimes the trophy doesn't unlock when you have made 10,000 kills and will unlock either before or after you reach the target. The worst incidence of this I have come across is someone reaching 13,000 before the trophy unlocked. There is no known cause or solution to this problem.
Kill 40 hybrids in the Single Player Campaign
Hybrids are the main enemy you will face throughout this game and you will kill a lot more than 40 of them during the course of your time playing Resistance 2. Expect to get this trophy pretty quickly.
Collect 5 pieces of Intel in the Single Player Campaign
Intel appears as small white briefcases found sporadically throughout the Single Player Campaign. See the guide for the Master Spy trophy below to get the location of all 20 Intel documents.
Nowhere to Hide
Tag and kill 30 enemies with the Bullseye in the Single Player Campaign
The Bullseye is one of the most common weapons in the game with about 80% of Hybrids sporting one. Its secondary fire serves to ‘tag’ an enemy which then results in all of the primary shots you fire for the next little while homing in on the enemy that you tagged. So in order to get this trophy, you must first shoot an enemy with (secondary fire) and then hold down (primary fire) until it dies. You need to do this 30 times to earn your reward.
This is a very useful tactic to use in general, even when you have already got the trophy, as the Bullseye gets very inaccurate over long distances. Also, once you have tagged an enemy you can run about without needing to bother to aim at them. This is very helpful on higher difficulties.
Get 30 headshots while scoped in with the Fareye or Marksman in the Single Player Campaign
To access the scope with either of these weapons, simply aim with and then make sure you aim for the heads of enemies as often as you can. The start of Chapter 3, after you take out a load of enemies while in the helicopter is a good place to get a bunch of these kills with the Fareye.
A good tip is to use the secondary fire of the Fareye if you get a chance as it will slow down time and allow you more control over your aim. Also note that the Fareye’s scope can be zoomed in with and out with which can be useful in getting those elusive headshots.
Get 150 kills with the Carbine 40mm, LAARK or Frag Grenade in the Single Player Campaign
The Carbine 40mm is the Carbine’s secondary fire. Try to aim any of the above weapons into large groups of enemies if you can. The total you need to reach is quite large so it will probably take quite a while to get the trophy.
One thing to note is that can scroll through which grenades you are currently stocking by pressing . This means that you select the Frag Grenade if you wish, even if it isn’t your currently highlighted weapon.
They Go “Boom”
Get 30 kills with the Magnum secondary fire in the Single Player Campaign
The secondary fire of the Magnum (as explained by Major Blake in the Prologue) makes any bullets that you have already fired from the primary ammo explode. If these bullets are currently lodged inside an enemy, then this will cause loads of damage and may also hurt any nearby enemies as well. You can also shot the walls or floor next to any Chimera and then blow them up with your secondary fire. This is the easiest way to kill Hybrids with the secondary fire.
This is quite tricky to get because most enemies you encounter die from just one shot with the Magnum. It depends on which difficulty you are playing in as to which enemies can survive a shot or two with the Magnum, so you will have to do a bit of experimenting to find out how many you need to shoot before you know that pressing will result in a kill. For example, on Normal difficulty, Ravagers need to be shot three times and then blown up in order to kill them, while Steelheads need only two.
Whenever you find a Magnum, just make sure that try and kill everything you can see with secondary fire and you should pick up this trophy before too long.
Set 100 enemies on fire with the Bellock Semi-Automatic, Air-fuel Grenade, Spider Grenade or environmental hazard in the Single Player Campaign.
This is a tough one to get because you very rarely set fire to enemies by mistake and so you won’t really be working towards this total without meaning to.
The Bellock is a fairly rare weapon in the Single Player Campaign and fires (primary ammo) small packets of napalm that either explode when they hit an enemy directly, or, if it fails to hit an enemy, will eventually catch on fire and can cause nearby enemies to catch on fire as well. It also can fire (secondary ammo) these napalm clusters so they that won’t explode when they hit an enemy, but will land, explode and cause all nearby enemies to catch on fire. The latter is far more useful when it comes to setting enemies on fire, which you need to do in order to get this trophy.
The Air-fuel Grenade is similar in use to the secondary fire of the Bellock and causes a cloud of gas to be released which then explodes, causing any enemies caught in the cloud at the time to be set on fire. The Spider Grenade is entirely different from these other two. It releases a web of tendrils that spreads out from where the grenade landed by crawling along the walls and ceiling nearby. Any enemy touched by these tendrils will be set on fire. Don’t forget that you can select which Grenade is active by pressing .
Environmental hazard refers to setting things on fire by using objects like burning cars or exploding oil drums.
All of the weapons are best employed against large groups of enemies and the environmental hazards are best got while working towards the Mind Your Surroundings trophy at the same time. If you make sure that you take advantage of the Bellock whenever you happen to find one, as well as the grenades, you should get this trophy before too long.
If you have beaten the game and still not earned this trophy and you want to get it out of the way, then you can load the Chapter set in Twin Falls. Eventually you will find yourself in a large auditorium that is full to the brim of Grim. (Grim are the enemies that have no armour or weapons and come out of the cocoons and charge at you and try to melee you to death). By this point, you should have both the Bellock and a Spider Grenade. (The Bellock is found next to a jeep in the parking lot of the Diner earlier in the Chapter and the Spider Grenade is found next to the steps leading into the Auditorium in question). Chuck your Spider Grenade into the fray and then let rip with the Bellock’s secondary fire. This should give you at least 20 or 30 enemies set on fire. When you are done, simply repeat until you get the trophy. This tactic isn’t really necessary as you should get it eventually anyway, but if that gap on your list is bugging you and you want to get rid of it as soon as possible, this is definitely a good way to do just that.
Kill 50 enemies using the Wraith with the force barrier engaged in the Single Player Campaign
The Wraith is a great weapon that infrequently appears throughout the Single Player Campaign. It is a rapid fire chain gun type weapon (primary fire) that can project a force field around (secondary fire) that will protect you from incoming fire for a short time.
Whenever you find this weapon, it usually signals the start of a pretty intense firefight so make sure that, in the ensuing battle, you put up your force field right away and try to make sure that you kill as many enemies as possible before it is depleted. This shouldn’t take too many Wraith uses as the total is relatively small given the destructive potential of the weapon in question.
I See You
Kill 50 enemies through solid matter with the Auger in the Single Player Campaign
The Auger (or rather Auger Mark II to be fussy about it) is an excellent weapon with the ability to shoot through walls. If you are carrying an Auger and you spot an enemy, then it will start to glow green. This glowing image can still be seen even if you retreat behind cover and so you know where the enemy is and you can shoot straight into the wall while knowing that you will hit the enemy. Be aware though that enemies can shoot you through cover with an Auger as well, so if you see any Auger bullets appearing on a wall or object, then be aware that cover will be less effective than before.
Whenever you pick up an Auger, try to make sure that every enemy you kill is killed by you shooting at it through a wall or object and you should soon get your trophy.
Talk to the Hand
Use the Auger force barrier to stop 150 incoming enemy shots in the Single Player Campaign
Very easy. The secondary fire of an Auger puts up a temporary force field that will stop oncoming bullets. Unlike the Wraith’s field, these force fields don’t move around with you, so put one up and stand behind it. 150 bullets really isn’t very many at all and can be stopped using two barriers at the most, as long as you put them up in sensible locations.
For Close Encounters
Get 10 one-hit headshots with the Shotgun in the Single Player Campaign
The Shotgun is called the Rossmore in this game is a very good weapon (from close range only). To get this trophy, you need to get in close to your foe and aim slightly upwards to hopefully obliterate their head. This easiest done against Grim when you encounter them for the first time as there are plenty of Rossmores lying around for you to pick up. Also, Grim always run towards you so you don’t need to try and get close to them because they will do it for you and finally, because they come in tightly bunched together waves, which means that can actually get more than one kill per shot. Shouldn’t take very long at all.
Get 50 kills with the Hedgehog in the Single Player Campaign
The Hedgehog is one of the available grenades in this game, so remember to select it with if you are not already holding it. They are very powerful and if used well can kill several enemies at once. It is often worth checking what grenades you are currently carrying often, as it is easy to pick up a Hedgehog without even noticing that you have. Just make sure that whenever you have a Hedgehog (or more than one possibly) that you use it as well as you can and you should get your 50 required kills in not too much time at all.
Up Close and Personal
Get 50 melee kills with any weapon in the Single Player Campaign
Meleeing an enemy usually ensures a kill as it is a very powerful attack. You will often use it as a last resort if you have let something get too close to you by mistake and is activated with . It doesn’t matter what weapon you have equipped for this trophy (as hinted in the description) so simply run up to a Chimera and whack away with . You will probably have to make an effort to get this trophy, as meleeing is quite unusual in normal play, so if you are missing the trophy, just try to get the occasional melee kill every now and then.
Destroy 40 vehicles in the Single Player Campaign
Easily done. Whenever you see any cars in the road, shoot them until they explode, simples! Try to kill enemies with the resulting explosions as this will count towards the Mind Your Surroundings trophy as well.
Mind Your Surroundings
Get 50 indirect kills using explosive objects in levels in the Single Player Campaign
This might take a while to get because it is not the natural way in which you normally kill things. You can either aim at cars if there are Chimera nearby, or you can, much more successfully aim at red barrels that you will find occasionally scattered throughout the Campaign. These are much more powerful, but they can be quite hard to find. You will most likely get quite a few kills without even realising it.
Achieve the rank of Lieutenant
This refers to your overall player rank, not your rank in the Single Player Campaign (which starts as Lieutenant anyway) or your levels in multiplayer. All the XP you earn in the game counts towards your rank, including both multiplayer campaigns and the Single Player one. You can check you rank and your progress to the next one in the Profile screen, accessed through the Community option on the main menu. Lieutenant is gained at rank 31 and will require a combined total XP of around 4.5 million.
This will take quite a while to achieve. However, if you are currently working towards any other trophy, you will also be working towards this one as well. This means that the best way to get this trophy is to forget about it and work towards any of the others in the game.
Exotic Weapon Collector
Get 20 kills with each weapon in the Single Player Campaign
This is an easy silver. You may well get this just by playing through the game normally, but even if you don’t, you will almost certainly have more than 20 kills with the vast majority of the weapons and should only be missing a couple.
You can check the amount of kills you have with each weapon on your stats screen in your Profile. The only weapon I was missing after my first playthrough was the Pulse Cannon and it may well be the only one that you are missing too. If so, just make sure that when you do pick one up (pretty infrequently) that you use up all of the ammo that comes in the gun killing enemies before you grab a different weapon.
Collect all the Intel documents in the Single Player Campaign
As mentioned earlier, the Intel documents in the Single Player Campaign are small white briefcases that are scattered throughout the game and there are 20 in total. These are actually incredibly easy to find, compared to other games with a generic collectable item throughout (such as the flags from Assassin’s Creed, oh the horror). This is because each Intel is given its own number, which you can look up in your profile which means that you can tell immediately which ones you are missing and go straight to that one in the guide below. Plus there are only twenty, which is a comparatively small amount.
Here is a guide to the locations of all 20 Intel pieces. Annoyingly the pieces do not appear throughout the game in numerical order so I have decided to order them in the order you will find them in the game, rather than numerically. This should make it a lot easier to follow if you are just going through and picking them up in a standard playthrough. I have included the numbers alongside each entry for reference purposes or if you are only missing a few and know which ones they are.
Intel 1 - Shortly after collecting the RPG-7 rocket and firing it at the exhaust system of the Goliath for the first time (not counting the first time you fired at the Goliath with the LAARK), Blake will lead you through some shrubs and some tanks. At the end of it here is a broken bridge that leads you to the side of a mountain and a building shortly after that. Once you get inside the building, Blake will tell you to follow him to the right; instead, go straight to the end of the hallway to find it.
Intel 2 - After the cut scene with Daedalus, head through the opening, but instead of following Blake up the ramp, go up the one in the opposite direction. You will find it at the end of the catwalk here.
Intel 6 - Do all the objectives you have to in the beginning. After you jump across the platforms in the very first room filled with water and the Furies, you will arrive in the next room with a Magnum there. At the far end of the next hallway in the final room to the right is this Intel.
Intel 5 - Head through the doors and work your way to the circular control room where you close the first flood gate. The Intel is on the interconnected computers in the middle of the room. Just circle around until you see it. Go directly to Intel #4.
Intel 4 - After closing the final flood gate, a brief cinematic will ensue. Following this cut scene, you will have to take an elevator down (sound familiar?). Proceed all the way to the where the Hybrid bodies are, right before the tunnel leading to the Patrol Drones and the drone. Go over to the crates on the right to find Intel #4 sitting there.
Intel 7 - Work all the way to the point where you pick up the Pulse Cannon, just before the first fight with the Kraken. The Intel is placed on the circular computer in the centre of the room.
Intel 8 - Sprint downwards and make your way to the extraction point. You will have to fight off waves of enemies to do so. Once you reach the ramp leading to the helicopter, take a look at the stacks of crates and you should be able to find it in the open in that area.
Intel 3 - Begin by going through the usual process and taking down the two massive flamethrowing Chimera. Then head into the building and make your way to the Inhibitors. You will now need to fight through the building before it collapses. Go up the stairs and take out the enemies. Turn right down the long tunnel/hallway and you will soon arrive in a room with a bunch of cooling tanks. The Intel is to the left, between two tanks.
Intel 9 - Shortly after handling the Chameleon in the tree stumps area, you will find a stream at the bottom of the small hill that leads to a little camp area. Sprint northwest in the camp all the way to the bridge, just before jumping into the river. You should find the Intel right on the bridge.
Intel 10 - Right after clearing out the wave of Chimera in front of the Motel, there is an opening on the right hand side where they came from. Head through the opening and sprint northwest to the house. Go up the stairs and you will find #10 right in front of the television.
Intel 13 - You begin this level by entering a dark house, going up the stairs, and getting into the backyard. Instead of taking a right into the garage, take a left to where the car is. You should be able to find the Intel behind on the side of the vehicle.
Intel 12 - Make your way into the basement filled with water, then take a right past the boxes and up the stairs. Turn left into the kitchen and look for the Intel close to the door that connects the kitchen and the living room. This one is a little difficult to find, and probably more associated with chance. It is in the floor I directed you to; it just might take some time to find.
Intel 11 - Follow your ally into the parking lot and the major fight here. After clearing out the first wave, the team will lead you across the lot towards a Diner. Make a right, just behind the Gas Station sign and go towards the military vehicles. Search for the Intel behind one of the trucks.
Intel 14 - Shortly after making your way into the cave near the start of the level, a bunch of Ravagers will burst through the wall and ambush you. After taking care of the Ravagers, you will be able to head through the opening they created. You will be able to find this one in the tent to the left, after heading through the opening.
Intel 15 - Go through the whole sequence involving the first encounter with The Swarm again. Make your back to the elevator and to the upper level. Now make your way down, past the dead body and the Carbine and to the door. Go through the doors until The Swarm attacks you again. Once again, pull off the juke and sprint towards your target. This time though, make a right as soon as you see the opening to grab the Intel next to a body. Go directly to #16.
Intel 16 - After picking up Intel #15, sprint down towards Malikov's lab and initiate the cut scene. Watch it, and go towards Malikov. He will start moving, follow him until you reach the first fork. Go left to find the Intel and a body.
Intel 17 - Jump into the water and swim towards the platform where the Chimera are located. Take them out and head into the room behind them. You will find the Intel on the floor beside a dead body.
Intel 18 - After planting the charge on the first target, you'll go into a darkened underground base. Make your way to the room with the lockers and go to the northwest corner to find it.
Intel 19 - Make your way into the house in the very beginning and into the attic. You will find the Intel right beside LAARK rocket launcher.
Intel 20 - After bringing down the 3 Titans, you'll have to make your way down to the tipped over building with red paint. Go up the stairs and take out the two surprised Chimera. Then, take a right down the hallway and you should see the stairs to the left. Instead of going up the stairs, turn into the room immediately to your left, you should find the Intel document in there, as well as a Wraith.
Kill 30 Spinners in the Single Player Campaign
Spinners are the tiny creatures that can be found at sites where there are lots of cocoons lying around. They don’t attack you and can be quite hard to spot and indeed kill. They tend to be found in groups, so if you see one, then you can be fairly certain that there will others nearby. They can be melee’d for an easier kill if you find yourself struggling to shoot them.
Simply kill 30 in total to earn this quite easy silver trophy. This can be done over multiple playthroughs, so there’s no need to panic if you beat the game without getting the trophy.
Kill 1000 enemies in the Single Player Campaign
You will eventually get this without really working too hard for it. Just play through the Campaign normally and you should unlock this trophy before the end of the game. If not, just start it again and play until you do.
Use every berserk at least once in Online Competitive Multiplayer
In order to use a berserk in an online game, you need to fill up your berserk meter, found in the top right of the HUD and then press . You fill up you meter by shooting opponents, killing opponents or completing objectives. There are a variety of berserks with ranging effects, all of which can be useful in a battle. In order to get this trophy, you simply need to use each one at least once while playing Competitive mode. You can select which berserk you want to be active during the match either before the game begins in your equipment room, or during the match by pressing during the game or while you are waiting to respawn.
However, there is one major problem with this. You don’t start with all of your berserks available. Some only become available after you have reached a certain level. You will unlock all of them by the time reach level 15. This is what makes the trophy time consuming as you have to be quite highly ranked before you have access to them. Also, bear in mind that the human and Chimeran players have a few different berserks and you will need to use them all. One final note, some berserks take longer to charge than others and so some of them might be quite hard to use, but you do only need to use them once. If you are struggling to fill up your berserk meter for the harder to charge ones, there are a few things you do. Firstly, play Skirmish and focus on completing objectives as this will charge your meter relatively quickly. Secondly, try to find a longer running match, by which I mean one with a high kill score or length of time. Finally, look for games (or create one yourself) with ‘half charge berserks’ activated. You should get it in no time.
Earn 1 million XP in the Competitive Campaign
You earn XP for various things in Competitive mode, not just killing your opponents, including capturing your opponent’s core in Core Control, or gaining control of beacons in Meltdown and Skirmish. However, having said this, killing is definitely the quickest way to build up your XP. Your XP is shared between the human and Chimeran characters so don’t worry about having to stick as one in particular.
This trophy will probably take a while to achieve, so personally, I wouldn’t focus on it too much. This will be something that, as long as you put in a moderately good performance each round you participate in, then it will come with time without putting additional effort into it.
You can check your progress in the Profile screen, which you can access either by selecting ‘Community’ in the main menu, or by clicking your name after a match.
Score 10,000 kills in ranked matches in Online Competitive Multiplayer
This is an exceptionally time consuming trophy to get. Even if you get 40+ kills every match (something I certainly don’t do) and even if you play 20 matches a day (taking about five hours to do, if not more) you are still looking at nearly two weeks to manage this. Those conditions are unattainable except by the most dedicated (and awesome) of players, so normal people will probably take several weeks, reaching into months to get this one.
There are also some issues with Resistance 2 online, the result of which may mean that sometimes, the game fails to record any progress you make during your online play. This includes not getting any XP, medals, ribbons and most importantly, kills added to your stats. No one seems quite sure what causes this, but it has been observed that accessing the XMB during the match or between matches may cause it to happen more frequently, so try not to do so if you can avoid it. Also, note that you should not select 'Find Game' as an option, as any matches played in this mode do not count towards your recorded progress. You should instead select 'Play Ranked Game' and you can then specify which type of match you are looking for.
I would recommend Deathmatch as your best chance to get kills. This is just a personal opinion so if this isn’t the best game for your playing style, then don’t hesitate to experiment until you do find something that works for you. One reason I like Deathmatches is that they make it very hard for campers to do well, because they rarely survive for long, whereas in Team Deathmatch for instance, if a sniper finds a good spot amongst territory that is largely in the hands of their teammates, then they don’t really have to worry too much about being picked off themselves. The reverse is true as well though and if you do prefer to camp somewhere with a sniper rifle, then avoid Deathmatch like the plague.
A good policy to adopt is to not worry about your kills at all and concentrate on trying to get the in-game medals and ribbons. A lot of these are definitely attainable, but will take a while (although nowhere near as long as the trophy itself) and this will hopefully keep you interested long enough to get it. One good thing is that you will get far in excess of 1 million XP if you do work towards this, so the Point Man trophy is achieved at the same time. Same applies to Salute Me.
Try to set realistic targets. If you are blessed with a lot of patience and skill in the game, then try for 500 kills a day. If this is outside your ability, then go for 1000 kills a week (yup, this will take 10 weeks to do, which is more than two months), or somewhere in the middle of those. There is no ‘best’ set up to maximise your chances. Personally I go with the Carbine and Ironheart berserk, quite a popular combination. Two good weapons are the Wraith and Auger, however, if you use these you earn the hatred of other players online as they are incredibly cheap and unfair at times, but hey, this is a trophy guide, so it’s got to be said.
Another good tip is to take a break. Every now and then go a few days without playing it and when you come back to it, it will be much more enjoyable. Try to concentrate on having fun. Although this can be an extremely frustrating game to play online at times, it will be a lot easier to achieve this trophy if you enjoy yourself while you go for it. This is a battle with your will power and perseverance as well as with your opponents.
Collect 50 pieces of Grey Tech in the Cooperative Campaign
Grey tech is dropped when your team kill one of the Elite Chimera. They are the ones with a rank symbol and health bar above their heads. You will either get one, two or three pieces of grey tech per kill (and then collection) depending on the number or stars in that particular Chimera’s rank. Be aware that the Elite Chimera are, as a whole, much stronger and harder to kill than their normal counterparts and it is extremely unwise to take them on by yourself.
For a completed mission, you would expect to get at least 10 pieces of grey tech, although sometimes less and indeed sometimes more, so you should get 50 quite quickly. Note that even if you fail a mission, any grey tech that you had already picked as a team up to that point still counts towards your total. Note thought that in order to acquire any grey tech earned by the team, you need to be in the general vicinity of the tech that is picked up, which means that if you don’t keep up with the rest of the team for whatever reason, then you won’t win any grey tech.
Grey tech can be used to buy upgrades for your class when you have reached certain, pre-set level requirements.
Complete 20 missions in the Cooperative Campaign
Pretty straightforward. Basically play lots of Cooperative missions and when you manage to beat 20 in total, you will get this trophy. Be aware that you can fail the mission not only if all of your teammates are dead at the same time, but also if any group of allies you have met during the mission are killed as well, so make sure you protect any characters with a blue health bar above their heads.
Complete 5 missions with a full party of 8 in the Cooperative Campaign
This is a trophy you can do very little about. It is pretty straightforward to understand what you have to do, unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do to make people play Cooperative and there’s nothing you can to stop people from dropping out either. That’s right, even if you start a mission with 8 players, it won’t count towards your total unless everyone sticks it out. The only way you can work towards this one is by playing lots and lots of Cooperatives missions and hope you get lucky.
Tour of Duty
Complete one mission on each region in the Cooperative Campaign
When you join a multiplayer game by selecting ‘Play’ from the menu, you will be randomly assigned an environment to play in. There is nothing you can do about the choice of region so the only way to earn this trophy is to keep playing Cooperative games until you do. However, if you select ‘Find Game’ instead of ‘Play’ you can join any match that’s currently being played and you can see which region they are being played in. This gives you the best chance of beating each region.
Reach max level with one class in the Cooperative Campaign
It will take about 2 million XP to reach the maximum level in any one class, so pick your favourite and stick with them for as long as it takes. As you level up you will earn the right to buy certain upgrades for that class, making the gameplay easier and your character more powerful, so remember to take advantage of these upgrades as you go through the levels.
There are pros and cons to each class, both in terms of levelling up and of how that class performs in battle. It is generally accepted that Medics are the easiest class to get XP with, as long as you are willing to stay back and spend your time healing your allies and reviving downed comrades, only assaulting the enemy to recharge you meter. Spec Ops do well if there are lots of Soldiers in the field and you make sure that you are constantly rearming people. Obviously Soldiers do best attacking the enemy, which becomes easier once you level up enough to start buying the upgrades.
Whatever way you choose to go, this will take quite a while to achieve but hopefully, in working towards this trophy, you will unlock others as well.
Kill 200 Elite Chimera in the Cooperative Campaign
Elite Chimera are the ones that have a rank symbol and health bar above their heads and are the ones that drop grey tech when they die (also known as Primarchs – hence the title of the trophy). You don’t personally have to land the killing blow on these 200, simply be in the squad when they are taken down. This shouldn’t take too long to earn as there are usually at least five Elite Chimera per missions, if not a few more and even if you fail a mission, any Primarchs that you had taken down already still count towards your total.
You can keep track of how many Elite Chimera you have killed by checking your Stats in the Profile page.
Collect all the Intel in the Cooperative Campaign
The Intel in question here are the mission updates that you can read before you play each mission. As you collect them you can read through them again in your Profile screen. In order to collect a particular piece of Intel, you need to beat whichever Cooperative mission that it accompanies and then you will earn it the next time you play that region. Again, the best way by far to achieve this trophy quickly is to find a game that is playing in a region where you missing Intel from and stick to that region until you get all of the Intel from it, or you get bored. A great thing about the ‘Find Game’ menu is that it tells you at the top of the screen how many Intel documents you are missing from any particular region. They are called ‘Mission Updates’ on this screen by the way.
There is a lot of Intel to collect and it will take you a long time to collect them all. The only way you can unlock this trophy is to just beat the relevant Cooperative missions until you get them all, so just keep on playing.
