Final Fantasy XIII-2

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Trophies
Quick Draw
Performed a significant number of preemptive strikes.

Perform ~100 Preemptive Strikes or so (I'm not sure of the exact number for this trophy, but it's small) and note that unlike Clock Stopper , they do not need to be consecutive. As soon as enemies spawn, press to sword slash them before the timer runs out to do a Preemptive Strike. Noel and Serah will be rewarded with a free hit (as well as Haste) when the battle begins.

Like Budding Hunter , Quick Draw is an easy one; it unlocked for me in Chapter 2, and it was the 6th trophy I earned in the game.

My guide also says 50 total preemtive strikes are only needed for this.

The easiest way to achieve this is go to an area in New Bodhum 003AF called "Tidal Shallows". It is on the way to the meteor crater, and there are several NORA members and a Chocobo there. The monsters that spawn in this area never attack you, they just sit there waiting for you to launch a Pre-emptive Strike! Remember to save after every 10 or 20 successful strikes, just in case ...

LEWA33: I've just got this trophy by the method I wrote about above. I lost count of the number of Pre-emptive strikes I made, but it was definitely more than 50.

Got this from Archylte Steppe ??? while grinding Monster Materials for Lightning lol. Not sure if it'll help now but I on some other website I read that you need 100 pre-emps in a row.

I'm pretty sure its 100... I got this in archylte steppe by the marsh area. You should save often in case you mess up

Well I just earned this trophy after 47 preemptive strikes. I kept a tally of them.

This trophy glitched on me, took about 250+ Preemptive Strikes, I was about to give up and delete my save file and start over, but then it finally popped just before I was about to do so.
