Section 2. Introduction
Red Alert 3 is the latest in the Red Alert series and the biggest innovation it brings is the co-op commander which is where the 3 online trophies come from. The game itself requires only 1 playthrough, but achieving that is a lot harder than it sounds.
First you need to find yourself a competent co-commander and complete every mission on hard while not missing any of the secondary objectives. The hardest thing about this is some missions are brutal on both players, you CANNOT save your game in co-op play and some missions (and other secondary objectives) have a timer; so if you miss it you'll have to do the entire mission all over again. For safety, I will be using the 3 playthrough method in this road map.
Section 3. Walkthrough
Before we begin I advise utilizing this guide written by Raining Metal at Gamefaqs.
Whether you're new or a veteran of the RTS genre, play through all 6 tutorials for your first trophy. All it entails is the computer telling you what to do and how to do it.
Step 1: Story Mode Playthrough 1
Set the difficulty on Medium, this is your basic playthrough. You'll get all storyline related trophies as well as "Tempus Fugit" when you're finished. Use this playthrough to get a feel for the missions and knock out as many Secondary Objectives as you can. I recommend writing down missed objectives if you're not focusing on them. If you're confident in your RTS abilities then this playthrough can be skipped.
Step 2: Story Mode Playthrough 2
Set the difficulty to Hard, this is your "Master and Commander" playthrough. Don't feel obligated to hit Secondary Objectives here. Your focus should be only the Primary Objectives, but if you haven't completed all of the Secondary Objectives you can work towards them as well. I advise using multiple saves for each mission as some of them are extremely difficult.
Step 3: Story Mode Playthrough 3
This playthrough is your co-op playthrough. Find a partner here and hit the missions on Easy mode. Your partner will probably want to play through all the missions on Hard, but if they are not skilled and don't know what to expect, I strongly suggest you refuse. Some missions (i.e. Allies 9) are extremely difficult and without the ability to save, your attempts will be infuriating. Use this playthrough to grab any Secondary Objectives you may be missing.
Step 4: Skirmish Mode (Unit / Kill Trophies)
Most of the trophies here are for killing a certain number of units a certain way; some are more difficult than others. While they are all able to be done against the CPU, a boosting partner is highly recommended (boosting thread is here). If you can get two partners on at the same time, all three of you can attain every trophy in one battle. Each one of you will have to be a different faction and let your partners capture a MCV so they can make units specific to a trophy. Check the trophy guide for details.
Step 5: Skirmish Mode (Map Trophies)
With all the technical skirmish trophies out of the way there's only a handful left. One is to beat all of the AI commander personalities on a 1-vs-1 map. Another is to win a skirmish on every map (27 maps in total). Those are the most time consuming trophies. The only other ones you should be missing are to win a 3-on-1 match, beat a brutal difficult opponent and win a match in under 5 minutes. Details for the last three trophies can be found in the trophy guide.
Got my BS in CS, just need to walk across a stage to make it official.

Just got this, planning on doing the campaign trophies all in one go (i.e. Co-op + Hard + Secondary Objectives). Both of us have played a lot of RTS's so fingers crossed we can do it.
If all else fails, i'll turn to your roadmap.

If you're attempting all the story mode trophies in one go I strongly urge to check out the guide. Some of the missions are stacked against you on Hard and one is nigh impossible if you don't engineer rush as soon as possible. So if you must, please read so you know what to expect and don't get caught with your guard down.

This will come in handy .
I DON'T Save File/Account Share/Sell any part of my account nor do Trophies for people. If you wish to play with me then do not use hacked characters, items, servers or lobbies as I run a clean game. No blank Friend Requests please as they will be deleted. Don't give people grief because of their views and opinions, it's not nice and does you no favours. Credit to prozendaal for the avatar.

To be hones i don't really se a reason to play main game 3 times, 2 would be enough for sure. One play on easy to get to know base game and second on hard to get trophies.
Personally i found great partner for a game (thank you AstricHD!) and we just make one playthrough on hard. Even if we do fail on a first try we manage to pass every mission on a second try. This game is not really that hard on hard. Sometimes i wonder how easy must it be on easy when we do not have any troubles on hard...
