Dishonored Trophies
Harm's Way
You caused 5 unintentional suicides

To cause an unintentional suicide you must first learn Possession Level 2, which will enable you to possess humans. After doing so you can possess a human and cause them to perform a task that results in their death. The easiest way to do this is by having a soldiers shoot themselves, which also requires Bend Time Level 2. Mission 9: The Light at the End, is especially good for doing this—which is the location shown in the video— because every soldier has a pistol.

About two seconds after an enemy points their pistol at you they will fire. It is the same delay for each and every type of enemy. The cast time on Bend Time is also about one second. For a kill to count, simply use Bend Time (level 2) a second after one of them fully extends their pistol and aims it at you, or reloads after firing. The moment bend time activates the target should have just fired their gun.

Immediately use possession (level 2) on them (or someone other than the person that fired the shot for Manipulator). Turn them around, walk around the bullet, and then position them a few feet away from, but still in front of, the bullet—not right in front of it otherwise it will miss—then release the possession. It will instantly kill them and count towards the trophy. It is best to have at least five or six mana potions before attempting this and to save first. You should also save right after you perform a successful kill. Load up the save if you make a mistake and repeat the process until it unlocks.

Just use possession and walk through Wall of Light or let the guard shoot at you - possession- and walk the guard in the line of the bullet so he gets killed

Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 06:11:47 AM know how after you possess someone, they kind of stumble forward a little bit acting stunned, or puking. Well, I thought that if I possessed someone, walked them right up to a ledge, then unpossessed them, they would stumble forward and suicide off the ledge...but it didn't work. I mean, they definitely fell off the edge and died, but I guess the game doesn't count it as a suicide...but it should.

In the boyle estate mission, start possessing party guests, and unpossess them right in front of the wall of light. The little shove as you unpossess them will throw them into the wall of light killing them. If you're doing this it will be very useful to first possess the nearby guards first and knock them out in the locked oil tank room nearby.

I did this after I finished the game by reloading the in the mission "The Loyalists". My method included waiting for someone to shoot at you, stopping time, possessing them, and walking them in front of their own bullets. Right at the beginning of this mission there are plenty of guards with guns that you can use for this. After getting the trophy I reloaded the same point and did basically the same thing for the "Manipulator" trophy. Pretty easy method once you get the rhythm down.

toysjoe's method of using civilians on the wall of light in Lady Boyle's mansion was a very quick and easy way to get this trophy. The possession/bullet method I found to be a very big pain.

toysjoe's method doesn't work.
I just killed at least 10 guards and 10 civilians using his method by possessing them and unpossessing them in front of the wall of light and the trophy still won't pop for me.

dude screw this trophy so hard. I've tried the way they show in the video and i either cant get the bullet in the right place or when i posses them and get them into place the bullet had decided to shot off anyways. as for the wall of light method, lets just say i burnt that whole party to a crisp and still no pop

This is the vĂ­deo of what toysjoe says:

It's easier than trying to catch a bullet. That's how I got this trophy. Just don't change lightwall settings and possess only civilians.

You have to possess the one who shoots the gun and use him to die from his own bullet, because i tried using other people the entire time, and it only got me the manipulator trophy and then i tried Lady Boyle's and it didn't work, no matter how i tried to take out the guards silently.. People still panicked and upset the guards. So i had to act fast and still managed to use 4 potions and manipulate 5 people to the wall of light without no trophy, no maids, civilians..
