Roadmap

Introduction
This roadmap will assume two playthroughs: Easy difficulty in co-op and Extreme difficulty playing solo. Some might choose to do a single Extreme playthrough in co-op. Others may choose one Easy playthrough playing solo and a second Extreme playthough in co-op. No one single method is correct, so get a feel for the game and decide which is best for you. Either way, just make sure to have fun and exercise a little patience in those sections where you might feel like smashing your poor controller!


Co-Op Easy Playthrough
Finish the game on Easy with your online or split-screen co-op partner. Make use of exploding canisters whenever possible in order to get Can It!. When and if you find yourself downed by the enemy, try crawling around until you kill five baddies before standing up to achieve Mexican Showoff. In addition to the unmissable story-based trophies, chances are you will unlock some others without even trying. If you do not, there is no reason to worry since they can be taken care of in the next step.


Easy Playthrough Clean-Up
If you are missing any single player trophies such as Catch!, Chinese Waltz, Dance Off!, Trigger Happy or Steady Hand, use chapter select to load “Blood, Sweat and Tears”. For Sichuan Specialist or Double Happiness, choose “Laying Low”. If you require Hand of God, start up “Airstrike”. Follow each of the trophy suggestions in the guide to see how they can easily be achieved at the beginning of the appropriate chapter.


Extreme Solo Playthrough
After following the previous step, Dead Men Rising will be the only remaining single player trophy. Refer to the trophy suggestion in the guide for some general tips on how to best this very daunting difficulty level with your AI partner. Remember that strategic cover is the key and make the best use of the weapons available to you at the time.


Arcade Mode
Some trophy descriptions state they can be achieved either in Arcade Mode or ranked matches. With the exception of Unfinished Business, these are more easily done in Arcade Mode since your AI team-mates will not attempt to become traitors until the much later rounds. Some such as Welcome and Escape...From Anywhere are easily achieved over time while others like Lightning Looter take a little persistence and dedication.


Multiplayer
When first starting multiplayer, for the sake of efficiency, choose your path for No I in TEAM and There’s an I in TRAITOR and stick to either karma choice until they are both unlocked. Unfinished Business and Harry Houdini will most likely be obtained naturally while playing either Fragile Alliance or Undercover Cop when one of your beloved team-mates tries to betray you. Certain multiplayer trophies can only be unlocked in specific game modes.
  • Putting on the Ritz can only be unlocked in Fragile Alliance.
  • With a fortuitous bounce, Rat Killer and Law Enforcer are earned in Undercover Cop.
  • Addict and Alpha Male are achieved in Cops & Robbers. Make sure to read the description for Alpha Male since it may seem glitched to some, but it just has a very unfair requirement.
NOTE: Boosting is nearly impossible since you are not allowed to invite friends into ranked matches. However, read this method by Thunder_At_Home here which outlines the best possible way to circumvent this. Personally, I tried this with a couple of people from the site and found that it is not that effective. Out of an eight-person boosting group, I would only be consistently paired up with two or three others in the same lobby. Not only would getting everyone into the same room take forever, but you would have to do it all over again after the session ends since the network does not let you continue into a new game with the same group. If you are patient and do not mind dedicating a ton of time to matchmaking, then go for it. However, in my opinion, your time is better spent trying to get the multiplayer trophies legit.


Back to Arcade Mode
Almost done! Ever since Arcade Mode, you have been amassing Rank Points with the ultimate goal of reaching Rank 1. After having followed the previous steps in the roadmap, you most likely will be at Rank 2 by the time you finish the multiplayer trophies. For the remaining couple of hundred points, just grind through Arcade Mode by collecting as much loot in each session and Mastermind will eventually be yours!


PLATINUM TROPHY

Blood On Your Hands
Earn all Trophies.

The developers obviously did not burn the midnight oil creating this platinum image. As with all other platinums, earn all the other trophies to unlock this.

SINGLE PLAYER TROPHIES (continued)

Catch!
Push your human shield into an opponent in Story Mode.

Easily done on "Blood, Sweat and Tears" when the game prompts you to capture your first human shield. Once the human shield is in your possession, walk towards the enemy directly in front of you towards your left. Throw the human shield into him by pressing and it will kill him. If you mess up for whatever reason, just reload the last checkpoint and try again.


Can It!
Kill 10 enemies with exploding canisters.

You can easily achieve this trophy while playing through the first two chapters. Note that the total is cumulative, so you don’t have to do it all in a single explosion. Pressing highlights all the available canisters in an area. Simply pick up a fuel canister, fire extinguisher or acetylene tank and press after you’ve thrown it into a group of enemies. The parking lot which you will traverse in “The Details” is filled with fire extinguishers, and in many cases enemies will readily stand right next to them – so oblige their death wish!


Mexican Showoff
Kill 5 enemies while downed before successfully recovering.

The five enemies you must kill are not cumulative - this must be done in a single instance while downed. I'm sure there are many sections where it is possible, but I was able to do it in "Out of Shanghai" while trying to take out the two machine gunners. If you enter this area and head left (towards said machine gunners), chances are very high that you will be downed. Luckily for us, a whole bunch of enemies should start to charge you at this point, so just make sure to take them down quickly with either an automatic weapon or shotgun.


Sichuan Specialist
Escape the restaurant in 'Laying Low' without being downed on any difficulty.

Note that the trophy description reads "downed" and not "killed", thus you need to be extra vigilant. The walls in the restaurant are made of wood and will only provide you with cover for a limited time. After taking out the two waves of enemies in the main room, be aware that one shotgun-wielding opponent will then kick open the door in your path so you'll need to kill him quickly. Bypass the bound hostages and open the door with your partner - once in the next area heading down the alley, the trophy will pop.


Hand of God
Complete a Story Mode mission without dying once on any difficulty.

Pretty straightforward, especially in "Welcome to Shanghai". Be patient, use your cover effectively and you should get it with no problem. If you are trying to obtain this in a chapter which contains a mission goal (i.e. blowing up a certain someone's getaway van or saving a mysterious stranger who is hanging from a ledge), you must complete it successfully otherwise the game will classify it as a death towards this trophy.

If you missed this trophy while playing through the story, load up "Airstrike" and it should be a cakewalk. Thanks to kildot for the idea!


Chinese Waltz
Kill 5 enemies without losing your human shield.

Once again, this is best done in "Blood, Sweat and Tears" when the game prompts you to capture your first human shield. Simply grab your human shield and then proceed into the room killing any enemies in front of you and in the balcony area. If your human shield is killed or you run out of ammo, just reload the checkpoint and try again.

Skip to 0:25s in the video below for a demonstration.

Much thanks to Youtube's K2lProductions for creating the video!


Dance Off!
Execute 30 enemies while holding them as human shield.

I ended my first playthrough having killed 24 human shields. For the rest, I returned yet again to our favorite section in "Blood, Sweat and Tears" when the game prompts you to capture your first human shield. As a test, I grabbed the human shield, executed him, reloaded the checkpoint and repeated a couple of times. After doing this for the sixth straight time, the trophy indeed did unlock. Thankfully the save system is very generous in this respect!


Trigger Happy
Kill 5 enemies in 15 seconds with any pistol.

When the trophy list was first released, the description read "Kill 5 enemies in 15 seconds with any pistol whilst not dropping your health below 90%". Upon the game's release, the developers demonstrated their soft side by eliminating the requirement pertaining to "not dropping your health below 90%"!

I'm sure this can be done in many areas, but let's return to our favorite spot in “Blood, Sweat and Tears” when the game prompts you to capture your first human shield. Rather than capturing him, shoot him in the back of the head with your handgun and proceed into the room quickly killing the enemies on the left and right. Ignore the guys on the balcony and continue up the stairs in order to finish off the two enemies on your right. Thanks to immikeulate for providing the idea!

Skip to 0:25s in the video below for a demonstration.

Once again, much thanks to Youtube's K2lProductions for creating the video!


Double Happiness
Kill 6 enemies in a row with a shotgun - all of them as one shot kills.

I was fortunate to get this trophy without even trying. In “The Details”, the Shanghai police are equipped with shotguns, so make sure to pick it up once they’re dead. It will kill any enemy with either a shot to the head or torso, so aim true and it shouldn’t be a problem.

The very beginning of "Laying Low" also provides a good opportunity to unlock this trophy. Starting it via chapter select equips you with a shotgun and about 15 enemies to eliminate. Just restart the checkpoint if you mess up for any reason.


Steady Hand
Get 5 headshots in a row using the same clip.

Another trophy obtained without even trying! In “Welcome to Shanghai” after throwing your first fuel canister, remain in cover while enemies are hidden behind some market stalls. Just be patient and wait for them to raise their heads as they take shots at you. The basic handgun will do the trick!

Alternatively, skip to 0:30s in the video below to see how it can be done at the beginning of "Blood, Sweat and Tears"

And yet again, much thanks to Youtube's K2lProductions for creating the video!


You Want Blood?
1000 kills.

After my first Easy difficulty playthrough, I had approximately 700 kills. Actually there is no need to stress over this trophy since Arcade Mode and multiplayer kills also count towards the total. Trust me, you will eventually unlock it.


Dog Days
Complete Story Mode on any difficulty level.

This trophy is story based and cannot be missed. Check the spoiler tag for details.
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)


Dead Men Rising
Complete Story Mode on Extreme.

Opinions may differ, but I suggest that you beat the Extreme difficulty playing solo. The main reason is that your AI partner can never be killed and also flanks enemies very well which makes some instances a bit more doable. While playing co-op, splitting up from your partner in order to attack enemies from different angles can prove very troublesome because if one team-mate is downed chances are that the other will not make it in time to revive him or will also be killed in the process. Even while playing solo, some sections are indeed very challenging but you will eventually get through them with a little patience.

The best tip I can give is that you should never enter into cover, especially when facing multiple enemies in various directions. Once you peak around to aim, you can be cut to pieces pretty quickly. It is best to just stand or duck behind some sort of cover and shoot your enemies at an angle. I found it very helpful to change my shoulder view (by pressing while aiming with ) since it may give you a better vantage point of the enemy and keep you better hidden behind cover.

Also, for the trophy to pop, Extreme difficulty must either be completed all in solo or all in co-op. If you finish half in solo and the other half in co-op, you won't get the trophy.

CO-OP TROPHIES

A Little Help From a Friend
Complete 1 mission in Co-op.

See End of the Road.


No Going Back
Complete 5 missions in Co-op.

See End of the Road.


Giving a Hand
Finish 30 enemies your Co-op partner shot 'Down Not Dead'.

Work on this trophy after completing your co-op playthrough. If you have a second controller, feel free to do it by yourself since it is doable on the Easy difficulty. In the chapter "A Thousand Cuts", our sexy duo will proceed through a large bus depot guarded by a couple of enemies. The player who is trying to get the trophy should equip the handgun and the other should be armed with the shotgun. Pass this section until you come to an narrow alley filled with dumpsters on both sides. Just ahead of you you will see the main street, as well as two officers talking to a civilian. The player with the shotgun should stand behind the last dumpster on the left, and the other player should stand to his right. Shoot the nearest officer in his behind with the shotgun and he will will go down. The other player then just needs to kill him off quickly. Reload the checkpoint and continually repeat until the trophy pops. Thank you once again to immikeulate for providing the idea!


Got Your Back
Revive your Co-op partner 10 times.

Once your partner is downed, stand over him and press when prompted. Note that the game will not alert you in any way as to when your partner is down, so the only way of knowing is either by headset communication or by directly seeing it. If you are playing Extreme difficulty in co-op, chances are that you will have this trophy by the end of the first chapter.


End of the Road
Complete Story Mode in Co-op.

Finish the eleven chapters either in split-screen or online co-op and the trophy will be yours. You can mix and match difficulties across chapters and still unlock it - all that matters is that they are all completed.
I’ve found that someone will almost always join your game relatively quickly if you host an online co-op session. However, if you prefer a dedicated partner from the site, post here and make sure to stipulate your desired difficulty level.


ARCADE MODE TROPHIES

Welcome
Successfully escape once in Arcade Mode or in any Multiplayer Ranked Match.

See Escape From...Anywhere.


Doing Good
Successfully reach round 5 in Arcade Mode.

The trophy will actually pop at the very beginning of round 5.
See Love of Money.


Greedy Bastard
Earn at least $5,000,000 in every level in Arcade Mode.

You need to collect $5m in the Subway, Bridge, Airport, Fish Market, Harbor and Financial maps of Arcade Mode. Within each map, the $5m must be collected in a single session. For example, if you collect $4.9m in your first session of Subway and $3m in your second, you will not meet the requirements for that specific map. In order to confirm your stats, just go to the Arcade Mode high-scores for each map and make sure that you have one score above $5m.

Since enemies are progressively more difficult in each round of Arcade Mode, try to accumulate the $5m in the first two or three rounds. When you feel that the time is right, start eliminating your allies, pick up as much loot and head for the getaway vehicle. Feel free to quit the map any time after collecting your $5m.


Lightning Looter
Reach $8,000,000 in under 6 minutes of actual playtime in Arcade Mode.

I was able to unlock this trophy in the Subway map after MANY attempts. The entire map contains $4m in loot, so for two consecutive rounds you have to collect ALL of the cash and escape in the getaway van. Try to do this in the first two rounds since they are the easiest, and your goal should be to spend about 2.5 to 3 minutes per round.

At the very beginning, sprint down the escalator and take out the guards in the vault as quickly as possible. Collect as much cash as possible and head back out. When you are back in the subway tunnel, head right to the first pillar and pick up the fire extinguisher. By this time, you should see that the majority of your crew is taking cover in the tracks ahead of you, so run towards them and detonate the canister in their vicinity. Some will be killed instantly and the others will be downed, so finish off any that you can and collect their loot. If two or three are still alive at this point, that is actually OK because they prove very helpful in taking out the swarm of police in the waiting area. Head up the escalator on the left hand side - if you are progressing efficiently you should see about 4 minutes remaining on the timer. Take out the rest of your cronies and once again collect their cash. At this point, if you do not have at least $4mm in cash that means you left some lying around somewhere and should most likely start over. Based on the remaining enemies, you now have to decide if you want to head up the left or right stairs. Use cover effectively but do not waste a lot of time firing at the cops. If there are one or two in front of you, make a run for it and kill them if they are in your line of fire. Once in the street, watch out for the remaining enemies and head for your escape. If you did it in under 3 minutes you are in good shape, but now you have to do it all over again in the next round.

If done in under six minutes, the trophy will pop a bit after the start of the third round.

Alternatively, check out the video below with tips for obtaining the trophy in the Bridge map.

Much thanks to Youtube's cbkste for creating the video!

ARCADE MODE TROPHIES (continued)

Safe Crime
Finish 5 rounds in a row without getting any penalties in Arcade Mode.

Shooting at, but not killing, your fellow crooks earns you a penalty. Sometimes this can happen accidentally since they may enter your line of fire so be cautious. At the end of each round, check the statistical summary - if the "Yellow Card" stat in the top right says zero, then you are good. Repeat in four consecutive rounds and the trophy will pop shortly thereafter.


The Cleaner
Escape as a traitor with 50% of any level's total loot in Arcade Mode or Multiplayer Ranked Match.

See D.I.Y..


Escape From…Anywhere
Successfully escape 25 times in Arcade Mode or in any Multiplayer Ranked Match.

In order for a thief to escape, you just have to enter the van or helicopter successfully before the time limit expires. It does not matter if you are a traitor, do not have any loot or previously died (Arcade Mode only) - simply escape.


D.I.Y.
Escape with more than $2,500,000 in a round of either Arcade Mode or Multiplayer Ranked Match.

Obtaining this trophy will also unlock "The Cleaner" since you need to escape with more than 50% of a levels loot in order to accumulate such a hefty sum. It can be accomplished many ways, but I unlocked it while playing round 1 of the Subway map in Arcade Mode. After looting the vault, the entire crew will duck behind cover while standing in the train-tracks. Press to find the nearest fire extinguisher and detonate it in their vicinity. It should kill them all, but if any survived just finish them off. After collecting all the loot, make sure to survive as the cops come after you and get to the getaway van.


Blackjack and Hookers!
Accumulate $25,000,000 in your career (Arcade Mode and Multiplayer Ranked Match).

See Most Wanted.


Love of Money
Successfully reach round 10 in Arcade Mode.

The trophy will actually pop at the very beginning of round 10. The Bridge map is recommended since it is the shortest and the enemies are nicely spaced out. As soon as you can afford them, purchase the Busquian 800 or Busquian 900 assault rifles (and the scoped upgrades once available). Do not become a traitor since it will be to your advantage to let your crew rush ahead and deal with many of the cops. Try not to act like a hero and progress without them - always stay at the end of the pack. My AI teammates never tried to betray me once while getting to round 10, so don't worry about that. You only have three lives so be cautious especially in the latter rounds.


Most Wanted
Accumulate $50,000,000 in your career (Arcade Mode and Multiplayer Ranked Match).

Luckily $50m is not much of a grind. In addition to your cut of the loot, you collect money for just about everything - killing police, time bonus, betraying your crew, remaining loyal to your crew, etc. In fact, the only instance in which you are deducted cash is when you kill civilians. If you consistently choose to be a traitor, this can be accumulated rather quickly since you can get up to $4m per round. Easily obtainable over time.

MULTIPLAYER TROPHIES

Unfinished Business
Kill a yellow carded criminal whilst Down Not Dead (Arcade Mode and Multiplayer Ranked Match).

The AI will not betray you for the first ten or so rounds in Arcade Mode, so attempt this in ranked matches. Chances are that it will eventually come naturally when one of your team-mates attempts to kill you in Fragile Alliance or Undercover Cop. In order for them to down you, they will will most likely exhaust the bulk of their ammunition. While they are reloading, take the opportunity to empty your clip into them and down them as well. Quickly switch to your secondary weapon and you should have it. Obviously remain on the ground the entire time otherwise the trophy will not register.


Battle Hardened
Complete one session in each Multiplayer Mode (Ranked Match).

A ranked session of Fragile Alliance, Undercover Cop and Cops & Robbers consist of three, three and four rounds respectively. It does not matter if you win or lose, just complete each session to the end.


Addict
Win 20 sessions of Cops & Robbers (Ranked Match).

A minimum of six players is needed in order to start the match. The team with the most money at the end of four rounds is victorious. You will spend two of the rounds as a cop and the other two as a robber. While as a cop, money is earned by killing robbers and holding on to their loot - 10% of which will be added to your total. As a robber, earn your money by killing cops and escaping in the getaway vehicle with your loot. Generally you might see your opponents drop out of the match if they are way behind after two rounds which makes getting to 20 victories even easier.

Try not to end up on Team Bravo in order to guard against the host closing the session if your team has a huge lead. Additionally, if you are the host and do not mind being really shady, force start the game when the teams are 4vs3 in your favour. Unless the rest of your team-mates are a bunch of third graders, it will be a guaranteed win.


Putting on the Ritz
End a round as Criminal Expert in a Fragile Alliance Ranked Match.

This trophy popped unexpectedly after a round of Fragile Alliance. The main idea is to escape the round with a lot of cash without killing any cops or team-mates. The exact dollar figure is not 100% clear but it is somewhere in the range of $500k to $1m. Obviously this is easier to obtain in a session with only four players since you will have a better opportunity to collect more of the loot. Once the team is ready to make their escape, hang behind your team-mates and let them take out the cops. As long as no one betrays you and you make it to the escape vehicle, the trophy will be yours. Much thanks to readthemotto and Rated J for the information!


Law Enforcer
Win as the Undercover Cop by killing all criminals yourself (Ranked Match).

This one might take a while if you are not boosting but you will eventually get it. You definitely need to make life easier on yourself and try this in four player matches - if you are the host, force start the game once you see the fourth player join. As the description states, you have to kill all the criminals. So if one of the criminals falls at the hands of either the AI or another player then you cannot get the trophy. There really is not an optimal map since it is simply best to isolate the criminals individually and kill them one at a time. If possible, use any exploding cannisters laying about to give yourself an edge.


Rat Killer
Kill the Undercover Cop as the last surviving criminal and escape (Ranked Match).

This one might take a while if you are not boosting but you will eventually get it. Unlike Law Enforcer, it is not totally necessary to attempt this in a four player match but it will require some element of luck. At first you should try to identify the UC - suspect anyone who consistently lags behind the group or who does not shoot (or “conveniently” misfires) at the AI enemies. The luck which I mentioned before takes the form of the UC killing one of the other players, or your non-UC team-mates betraying each other. If everything goes your way, it will hopefully come down to just you and the UC. After you have killed him, the timer will immediately reset to one minute, so haul ass and quickly get to the van or helicopter.

Airport is the most advantageous map for this trophy since it gives you a pretty direct path to your escape vehicle with a minimal amount of AI enemies. Just try to have the UC eliminated before he can enter the hanger since it is filled with AI backup which makes your job of killing him and escaping all the more difficult.


Harry Houdini
Escape from being held as human shield in any Multiplayer mode (Ranked Match).

If one of your team-mates tries to betray you and grabs you from behind, start mashing the button which appears on the screen until the bar fills up. This should result in you dropping your new foe to the ground and unlocking the trophy.


No I in TEAM
Earn the Criminal Loyalty level in Multiplayer Ranked Match.
Unlocked once your Criminal Loyalty rank reaches “Saint”.

See There’s an I in TRAITOR.


There’s an I in TRAITOR
Become Scum in a Multiplayer Mode (Ranked Match).

Unlocked once your Criminal Loyalty rank reaches “Scum”. Work on these while playing Fragile Alliance and Undercover Cop. The Criminal Loyalty spectrum is as follows:

Saint <- Trustworthy <- Devoted <- Reliable -> Shifty -> Unreliable -> Scum

Upon starting your multiplayer experience, you will be at the base rank of “Reliable”. In order to achieve these in the most efficient manner, decide which path you would like to follow first. For example, if first choosing to pursue “Saint”, never shoot at or betray any of your team-mates and the trophy should be yours after a couple of sessions. After that is done, you have to become “that guy” who always tries to kill his team-mates as soon as the round begins. Once again, it should only take a couple of sessions, but you will be “Scum” before you know it.


Alpha Male
Have the most kills in a Cops & Robbers Ranked Match.

I already know what you’re going to say because the same thing happened to me. Yes, I did finish a couple of Cops & Robbers sessions with the most kills but the trophy did not pop. In actuality, the trophy is not glitched but there is a HUGE caveat which the developers did not include in the trophy description. Not only do you have to finish the session with the most kills, but no one can quit out of the match once it begins. Unfortunately this does involve a degree of luck because chances are that some players may quit early if your team is way ahead.

To guard against this, I suggest that you play in a match with the fewest possible players - so if you are the host, force start the match once you see six players in the lobby. It’s not a fool-proof method, but obviously the probability of someone quitting early in a six-player match is lower than in a twelve-player match.

Kills against the enemy AI count, so if you are a robber try to sprint ahead of your team-mates at the beginning of the round to get those few extra kills. As far as killing other players, never use the reticule to aim since that leaves you in a stationary and vulnerable position. Simply get relatively close to your enemy and fire in their direction with . Continue to fire at them when they are downed and if you run out of ammo, switch to your secondary weapon since that is much faster than reloading. Preferences will vary, but I thought the best weapon combo was the Vamazast (starting Primary weapon) and the Kalningrad 74.


Mastermind
Become a criminal Mastermind (Highest Rank) in Multiplayer Ranked Match.

2,800 Rank Points are needed to be a Criminal Mastermind. Starting out at Rank 8, almost everything you do across the majority of game modes gives you points in order to reach Rank 1. Story Mode (single or co-op) does not reward you with Rank Points, but Arcade Mode and multiplayer reward you for escaping with loot, killing team-mates or enemies and winning the session (multiplayer only). In fact, after completing Story Mode I finished all of the Arcade Mode trophies and levelled up to Rank 4 without even knowing it. Playing through multiplayer brought me to Rank 2, and I just collected the rest back in Arcade Mode. Thankfully this is not much of a grind and will come easily over time. While playing multiplayer, just make sure to complete the entire session otherwise the Rank Points will not be credited.


Love of the Game
All Multiplayer Modes trophies unlocked.

You can essentially think of this as the “multiplayer platinum trophy”. Unlock the seventeen trophies which stipulate that they can be earned in ranked matches and the trophy will pop.

No, he recommends you do two playthroughs. You can throw yourself in the deep end if you like. The one playthrough method is with a partner playing extreme.

Hmm I didn't see someone started a guide. I see you don't have a way to get trigger happy yet. I made a post about it but I'll copy & paste it here. If you like it you could add it to the guide.

During the blood sweat and tears mission make sure you pick up a pistol in the beginning. A little later you come to a area where the game tells you to take a human shield and there is an enemy in a door way facing away from you. Don't take him as a shield, shoot him in the back of the head the headshot a guy left and right of him. Ignore the guys on the balcony and run up the stairs to the left. Now shoot the two guys immediately to your right. Wait a few seconds and if you didn't get shot too much the trophy will pop.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy we have a trophy guide, but aren't you supposed to beat the game, acheive the trophies, compile the information, THEN WRITE A GUIDE?!?!

Or, can anyone write a guide whenever they like, and only the thorough ones get stickied?

Serious question, not flame.

Multiple people can write a trophy guide at the same time, the best one will be picked by the guide team and stickied. You are not aloud to write a guide without playing the game and earned most of the trophies first though.
