Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 Trophies
Elevator Action
Knock off every Tripod during the Elevator Sequence

Missable. In Chapter 7, make a save file BEFORE you board the Solar Array Elevator. Once you board it, necromophs known as Tripods will begin to latch onto the windows shortly after. If you have a decently upgraded Detonator and you may be able to achieve this on your first playthrough but it is still very tough even on Casual difficulty. Otherwise, I recommend doing this on New Game+ with a decently upgraded Contact Beam's ALT attack.

Strategy from TheCollectiveX: Use Detonator to fire Mines directly at the Tripods and knock them out flat.

Guess is best to do this one on a New Game+ with the weapons at its max and lots of ammo previously collected and stored.

Nevermind my previous comment, this was WAY too easy, got it on my first try with the fully upgraded Plasma cutter Ref. (the one from DS1). Just kept looking around and shooting them with the main fire for Vertical cuts straight to the arms.

Got this on Zealot setting with the Detonator. It's super easy with that weapon. It It takes them down with one shot. No need to aim at their arms. Also, you can respec one of your weapons and apply those nodes to your Detonator to make this easier. Then you can just reload your previous save when you are through. Good luck!

I used the Force Gun for this, the wide spread of the gun and when upgraded can knock back these guys easy, good luck if your working on Hard Core, these guys will rip you apart if your not quick.

Got this on Zealot difficulty, half way through.... odd glitch I guess or maybe it was the previous attempt that I thought failed...

this was not easy but after trying the three they talked about definitely go with the contact beam

Quite easy with a fully kitted pulse rifle a stack load of ammo and use the alt fire mode I did this on zealot with this method. The spawn order is similar so remember and react. Pulse Rifle alt fire only needs one shot per tripod thing

Doing a casual round for trophy collecting, created a back up save so I can comeback and keep trying this. tried a couple times with the detonator maxed out but switched over to a maxed out force gun, got it first try with that one

Lol so easy. Just balls up a beat the game on hardcore then you have the hand cannon. And 1 hit takes everyone of them down. Simple? Right?
