Miami, 1989. One man's phone doesn't stop ringing, but these job offers and dates aren't quite as innocent as they sound. Masked men, the Police, the Mafia and Government conspiracies swirl around you. As the bodies pile up, the further into madness you slip...

Step 1: Play the game and collect all masks/puzzle pieces

Play through all the chapters of the game, enjoying the madness and murder of Hotline Miami. Make sure to keep an eye on all the mask and puzzle piece locations in the trophy guide below. Once you reach chapter 19, complete the puzzle and use the computer. Also try to get a few of the miscellaneous trophies along the way.

Step 2: Use Chapter Select to get alternate ending and A+ on each Chapter

Once you've completed the game, the Continue option on the main menu is replaced with Chapters. Use this to replay through any chapter that you did not A+ in your first run through. Also make sure to replay Chapter 19, but this time do not use the computer.

In this step you will earn:

Get A Life
That's It?

Step 3: Clean up

Once you have got Get A Life you can turn your attention to all the remaining miscellaneous trophies. You should have already got a lot of different weapon kills, and possibly already unlocked some of these trophies without any planning. Use the lists provided and check off the weapons/executions as you go and you should get through this.

Combo King

The best place I found to get this is Chapter 10, clear the first floor and then go through the door in the bottom right of this area. If you are quick you can take out the three guards next to the stairs, the two in the next room, the three in a row by the windows, the three in the showers and then the guard and the dog in the room to the right of there. Try using a quick weapon like the knife and hold down to help get this.

Playing Pool
Hit an enemy with a weapon bounced against a wall 

You can get this in the Prologue, after clearing the two guys on the first floor pick up the baseball bat and head up some stairs. You'll notice a guard around the corner, aim at the wall opposite him with the right analog stick and then press . The bat should bounce off the wall and knock the guard down. Trophy unlocked!

Nigel Lowrie
Use a human shield 

To do this you must have a gun equipped and then press on a downed, but not dead enemy. An easy place to get this is in Chapter 2, after clearing the first floor head up the stairs on the right. Take out the first guard and then in the next room you'll see a man holding a pistol and a guard patrolling round the room. Open the door into the patrolling guard, kill or knock down the guard with the pistol. Pick the pistol up and then press over the body of the guard you knocked down with the door.

NOTE: You cannot use a human shield when equipped with the Machine Gun or the Shotgun.

Domino Effect
Throw a weapon at an enemy so that his weapon hits another 

When you throw a weapon at an enemy they will drop their weapon. If they're close enough to another enemy their weapon will fly and hit them causing them both to fall down. The best way to do this is to wait until two enemies are almost on top of each other and then throw () your weapon at the enemies, you'll probably get this more through luck than design.

Aced It
Get an A+ on any chapter 

See Get A Life

Karma
Die 1000 times (9) 

In this game you will die a lot. If you wish to you can die 1000 times during the Prologue, but this will come naturally as you play.

I Got New Friends
Unlock all weapons 

By collecting points from completing levels you earn new weapons that will be available to use. If you got A+ in most levels you should get this during your first playthrough, if not you'll get it after a few replayed chapters.

Knife for Pros
Use all melee weapons at least once (3) 

Most are commonly found, but some are exclusive to certain levels. Try to get a kill with each and complete the chapter once you've done so, the list of all melee weapons is:

  • Baseball Bat
  • Baton - Only found in Chapter 13, you can get them from some of the police officers.
  • Briefcase - Only available in the Prelude, you'll pick it up as part of the mission.
  • Broken Pool Cue
  • Crowbar - Only found in Chapter 5, in the room near the entrance/exit.
  • Drill - Only available whilst wearing the Carl mask.
  • Fireaxe - Found in Chapter 6 (see Something Burning), can also be a common drop.
  • Frying Pan - Can be found in Chapter 5, on the second floor on an oven.
  • Golf Club
  • Katana
  • Knife
  • Lead Pipe
  • Machete
  • Pool Cue
  • Pot - Can be found in Chapter 2 on the second floor, originally has water in it. You need to use it again after getting rid of the water in it.
  • Sledgehammer
  • Trophy - Only found in the Final Chapter and you will be forced to use it.
1989
Kill 1989 enemies 

Simple, as it says just keep killing till this pops! You should get this naturally as you're going for the other trophies.

Let In Some Air
Destroy 200 glass panels (1) 

The best place to farm this is Chapter 11, right at the start take out the guard and the ones that rush in. Then smash all the glass around you and let yourself get killed, repeat until the trophy pops!

Dog Lover
Kill 99 dogs (1) 

Another simple enough trophy, just kill 99 dogs over the course of your playthroughs. Dogs can be found in Chapters 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 14.

Wearing the Ted mask makes this easier as the dogs won't charge you so you only have to worry about the guards.

60 To Car
Go to the car 60 times (3) 

Once you've completed a chapter you're told to "Go To The Car", so to get this trophy you need to complete 60 chapters. You should get this naturally as you go for the other trophies.

These Are My Guns
Complete chapter five barehanded (1) 

Choose Chapter 5 and equip the Tony mask which gives you Fists of Fury (1 hit punch kills), then just run around killing. You'll have to lure some guards out as you cannot pick up or throw any weapons, but once you get the hang of it you'll get this fine.

Pitcher
Use all throwing weapons at least once 

Hit an enemy with all of these weapons:

  • Beer Can
  • Brick
  • Dart
  • Glass Bottle
  • Hammer
  • Ninja Star
  • Scissors
  • Throwing Knife
Zoo Keeper
Collect all the masks 

Most masks are given for beating each levels high score, but some are hidden within them. For the masks hidden within the levels it is best to get them after you've cleared the room of enemies. If you collect the mask and then die, you will have to go back and collect the mask again. It does not save automatically after picking one up. Here are the locations of all the masks:

  • Russell - Prelude - Right next to the dumpster you throw the briefcase into.
  • Rasmus - Finish Prelude
  • Tony - Beat High Score in Chapter 1
  • Earl - Chapter 2 - On the second floor, there's a living room area with a record player and next to it a pile of clothes. Here will be the mask.
  • Aubrey - Beat High Score in Chapter 2
  • Don Juan - Beat High Score in Chapter 3
  • Graham - Beat High Score in Chapter 4
  • Jones - Chapter 5 - Clear the rooms until it says Go To The Car. Now instead of entering the car, pick up the crowbar from the room just before the exit and walk around the outside of the area until you see a manhole. Walk near it and you'll open it, down here is the Jones mask lying next to a body.
  • Dennis - Beat High Score in Chapter 5
  • George - Beat High Score in Chapter 6
  • Ted - Beat High Score in Chapter 7
  • Carl - Chapter 8 - You'll see this mask on the floor as soon as you start the level. It's near the body of the man inside the room directly in front of you with the three armed guards.
  • Rufus - Beat High Score in Chapter 8
  • Rami - Beat High Score in Chapter 9
  • Jake - Chapter 10 - Clear the first floor then go through the door at the top left of the house. There will be two guards circling a body near the top of this area. On the head of the body is the mask.
  • Willem - Beat High Score in Chapter 10
  • Peter - Beat High Score in Chapter 11
  • Richter - Chapter 13 - On the third floor of the police station with all the guards in the centre, there is a room at the top with 1 guard. In there is the mask on a desk.
  • Zack - Beat High Score in Chapter 13
  • Oscar - Beat High Score in Chapter 14
  • Charlie - Chapter 16 - After clearing the restaurant and talking to the man, enter the kitchen and you'll see this mask on the side.
  • Rick - Beat High Score in Chapter 16
  • Brandon - Beat High Score in Chapter 17
  • Phil - Chapter 19 - After going down into the sewer area, you'll see a box of masks near the two people you were talking to. You'll find Phil here.
  • Nigel - Finish Chapter 19 - Using the computer after solving the puzzle.
  • Louie - Finish Chapter 19 - Don't use the computer, instead head straight down into the sewer.
Guns For Show
Use all guns at least once 

Like the description says, use every gun available to kill at least once. The list of guns are:

  • Double Barrel
  • Machine Gun
  • Magnum
  • MP5
  • Shotgun
  • Silenced Pistol
  • Silenced Uzi - This can only be used when wearing the Richter mask.
  • Skorpian
  • Uzi
Two Birds With One Stone
Hit two enemies with the same brick in one throw 

See Plain Luck

Get A Life
Get A+ on all the chapters (13) 

You need to get an A+ score on each chapter that you can get a score in (all except 12, Final, 18, 19). The best tactic for this is to wear the Zack mask (longer combo windows) and chain your kills together. Try to get as many executions ( on a downed enemy) as possible within the combo as they give you extra points. You should try and clear each room in one combo, this should give you more than enough points to get an A+.

Here's a series of youtube videos showing how to get A+

TheSeraphim17's A+ Video Guides

NOTE: If you are struggling with this you can delete patch 1.01 and this trophy will pop after A+'ing only 11 or 12 levels.

Always On Top
Perform every ground kill in the game (12) 

You must perform an exection on a downed enemy () with each of these weapons:

  • Baseball Bat
  • Baton
  • Brick
  • Broken Pool Cue
  • Crowbar
  • Dart
  • Drill
  • Fireaxe
  • Frying Pan
  • Glass Bottle
  • Golf Club
  • Hammer
  • Katana
  • Knife
  • Lead Pipe
  • Machete
  • Pool Cue
  • Pot
  • Pot with water
  • Scissors
  • Sledgehammer
Sounds Of Animals Fighting
Wear all masks at least once (3) 

The quickest and easiest way to get this is to first unlock all the masks, then start a level and choose a mask. Press , choose restart and then pick another mask. Do this until you've gone through the whole list and the trophy will pop.

Bat-man
Clear Chapter 2 using Nigel the Bat (5) 

Make sure you choose to wear the Nigel mask and complete Chapter 2. This is probably the most annoying trophy as the Nigel mask reverses your controls, take your time and you should get there.

Plain Luck
Hit three or more enemies with the same brick in one throw (9) 

You need to hit 3 enemies with 1 throw, and this is much easier than it sounds. The best place to do this is in Chapter 5 and with a brick (you must have unlocked the brick weapon first), start the level and see if a brick has spawned in the area. If it hasn't die and try again until the brick appears, now clear this floor and take the brick with you upstairs. Deal with the first few enemies and then in the room to your right you'll see some guards patrolling, now if you wait you can actually line 3 of them up easily. Now throw your brick and watch as they all fall down.

See this great video from LastTrophy for more information:

That's It?
Beat the epilogue 

During Chapter 19, do not use the computer. Instead go straight down into the sewer and talk to the people down there.

 
Secret Trophies
 
The End?
Beat the main story 

Finish the first 16 chapters and complete the main storyline.

Sewer Alligator
Find Jones the Crocodile (2) 

This is found in Chapter 5, once you've cleared out the areas and told to Go To The Car, instead of heading into the car pick up the crowbar in the room just before the exit. Now walk around the house to a manhole and you'll open it. Down here you'll see a badly beaten man and a mask next to him. This is Jones, pick it up for the trophy!

Eye For Details
Collect all the puzzle pieces 

In each of the first 16 chapters there is a puzzle piece, they appear on the screen as a very small glowing purple square. As with the masks, the game doesn't automatically save after you pick up a piece. You need to collect the piece and escape from that area alive for it to register, so if you die you'll have to pick it up again. In most cases you can just clear the room of enemies and get it then, but for some (specifically Chapter 9's) you'll need to put a bit of planning into getting the puzzle piece, and getting out unharmed. See below for details on all the locations in chapter order:

  • U - Prelude - Left of the first area near the tracks.
  • T - Chapter 1 - Near the sink in the kitchen area.
  • A - Chapter 2 - In the bathroom on the second floor with 2 guys in it.
  • O - Chapter 3 - To the right of the dining table on the second floor.
  • A - Chapter 4 - In the room with the man being interrogated that explodes when you enter.
  • E - Chapter 5 - In the kitchen on the first floor.
  • I - Chapter 6 - On the balcony that you reach after climbing out the window on the second floor.
  • N - Chapter 7 - In the room in the top left of the area near the desk.
  • R - Chapter 8 - By the top right corner of the dancefloor area on the second floor, up the right hand set of stairs.
  • S - Chapter 9 - By the lifts that the swat team come out of.
  • I - Chapter 10 - Clear the first floor then go through the door on the right of the area in the middle. In this area, clear out the guards and the purple dot will be in the lower left room next to the pool.
  • N - Chapter 11 - Clear the first floor then go up the elevator in the bottom right. On this second floor the letter is in the dark room on the bottom left side of the area.
  • W - Chapter 12 - When you're trying to escape the hospital, make sure to check the toilets below the elevator before getting into it for this letter.
  • S - Chapter 13 - On the first floor in the toilets to the bottom of the area.
  • B - Chapter 14 - After the floor with the monster truck in the middle, you'll go up some stairs. On this new floor, right in front of you, will be a toilet. Kill the men inside and take the letter.
  • H - Final Chapter - In the room on the left as you first start the level.
The Boss
Solve the Puzzle 

Once you have all the puzzle pieces, press and then choose puzzle. Put all the puzzle pieces in the right place (you'll know they're in the right place when they glow and you can't move them anymore) to get this trophy. You'll want to do this right at the start of the Chapter 19 as the solution is the password needed to get the True Ending. The solution is:

IWASBORNINTHEUSA

Cat Fight
Kill the panthers using Brandon the Panther 

The panthers are in the Final Chapter along with the boss, make sure you are wearing the Brandon mask when you start this mission and after you kill the two panthers you will get this trophy.

Smell Something Burning
Kill the crapping gangster with a fireaxe 

Chapter 6 is where you can get this trophy. Clear the bottom floor and take the lift up. After you've climbed out the window and round the side, dealing with all the gun wielding enemies, you should only be left with one man sat on the toilet. Head out into the hallway and on the right in between the doors is a red case, run close to it and it should open with an item falling out. This is the fireaxe! Pick it up, then storm the bathroom and kill the gangster where he sits.

This Is It
Beat the epilogue with secret ending 

To get the secret ending you'll need to have all the puzzle pieces, and solve the puzzle. Once you've done this, use the computer in the Nineteenth chapter and then head down into the sewer. Speak to and kill the two people down here, then return to your bike to get the trophy.
