Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 Trophies
Rock Always Wins
Fully distract 25 enemies with rocks (Single Player only).

You can throw stones by pressing . The enemy will be fully distracted when he walks to the location where the stone landed. Do this to 25 different enemies. This trophy should come naturally while playing through the main story because there are some stealth missions where you are not allowed to get detected. Throwing stones makes it easy to sneak past enemies. You can also farm the 25 distractions at outposts. After liberating all outposts there are still enemies at the coordinates X: 412.4, Y: 729.5. Some people have reported that they needed much more than 25 distractions. Don't worry, the trophy is not bugged. Just keep distracting enemies and it will unlock sooner or later.

Unlocked just 6 times after finishing story and Outposts, just throw the rock so that the enemy has to walk other way than the one he was facing.

Didn't find any enemies at the given coordinates (X: 412.4 Y: 729.5), so I went here instead: X: 367 Y: 697. This village by the water has a lot of enemies.

Does it have to be different enemies? It can I distract the same enemy over and over?

Just reset the outposts, also figured out that in order for the enemy to be fully destracted the have to look at the spot where you threw the rock and return to where they were without knowing you were there. that last part is key. Took me forever. This was the last trophy i got before platinum.

THANK YOU Goomba squisher! I finally got my Plat. I went to the first location and there was no one there. Went to your coordinates. Distracted THREE guys and it popped. That's all that was holding me from my Plat was 3 friggin rocks.
Thank you!

Is there any way to tell how many you've already distracted?

This was so dumbly designed. Like who really waits for a guy you've distracted to go back to his original location? Got this by doing it to the same exact guy over and over for a boring 30 minutes or so.

@#9, no, there's no way to tell. You just have to stick with it until that trophy pops, then you'll know. ;)

I hate trophies and achievements that fly in the face of the mechanic they're supposed to promote.

any time I throw a rock it is to get an enemy on his own away from his group so I can kill him silently.
why would I throw a rock and then do nothing to the guy? makes no sense.

This is really stupid. So we have to let them go back to their original position? 25 of them? really?

They could add some other trophy in the same line. Like, try to play run&catch with the black panther without dying for a whole hour. Wait, I better dont give ideas for this dev team.

Another great place to farm this is X:369.3 Y:781.4. Just hide behind the wall guarding the outpost and hide just left of the hole there. Start throwing rocks through the hole on your right and further down to the left of the guardhouse to distract multiple guards at once! Got it like this well after just 5 mins :) Watch out not to throw the rocks to close together or too fast after each other though... the guards have to resume their old route/position or they won't count :( Most of the time they'll say things to let you know their resuming their old position.

As TaekwonDodo said, go to coordinates X:369.3 Y:781.4. You can use the fast travel to the doctor's house, then grab the glider to get to the location. You can see 2 enemies are slaughting an animal. Just hide in the jungle and throw a rock to any point that 10 meter from the enemies. Sometimes these 2 morons would check your rock at the same time. I farmed like this way and get the trophy within 3 minutes. You should wait for the enemies distracted to return to their original locations.

This is my last, non-story related trophy left... I never use this except for the story missions where you couldn't get caught... And even then, I didn't need to use it that much during these stealth missions... Gonna go farm it at that location, I guess...

Can confirm it DOES NOT need to be 25 different enemies. you can fully distract the same enemy/enemies over and over until it pops.

This trophy is probably one if the more stupider trophies I've tried for.

This trophy may be annoying, but it doesnt compare to Trine's "All Boxes and no play"...
