inFamous 2 Trophies
Shock and Awe
Thunder drop into a group of 5 or more enemies.

A Thunder Drop can be performed by jumping down from a high place, then pressing mid air. But you probably already knew that.

You can earn this trophy with ease during the side mission, “Masquerade”. You’ll be tasked in heading to the nearby park, where a bunch of citizens will be posing as statues in which you’ll have to eliminate. Head towards them and once they start attacking, climb up onto a nearby palm tree or the statue in the middle of the park and wait till they gather in one place. Jump and float towards the group, then perform a Thunder Drop on them. You will easily hit 7+ more enemies, as well as unlocking the trophy, along with the Discerning Taste trophy.

See Discerning Taste for a video.

There's a neutral side mission towards the end of the game called 'Cold Snap' where members of the gang are escorting the militia around an alley. This is the easiest time I've seen this many enemies stacked up at once (with no civilians around to boot).

When I did it my first time though, it didn't pop, I let them kill me and I tried again, still no pop. On that same second attempt, I waited for them to regroup while engaging me, and I did it again, it killed 2 of them, but hit 5(+?), and it popped then.

So maybe it has to kill at least one of them? or something else glitchy going on, idk.

Hope this helps.

Apparently this cannot be done in UGC Missions. I just tried several times with a group of about 50 people in a little walled in box. I got at least 5 kills every time I done the drop, but the trophy never popped.

Finally this trophy decided not to be glitchy. As a tip, I did it in an early side mission called Masquerade. A bunch of militia (like 20 or so) are dressed as those statue performer guys. I just thunder dropped off the nearest building, and hit about 10 or so of them.

The good side mission "Jail Break" is also a great opportunity for this trophy.

Did this the same as #3.

The side mission 'Masquerade' can be played after the mission you are chasing Bertrand in his limo

@ #5

This cannot be done in UGC missions.

I've tried several times.

For anyone who beat the game before getting this trophy, there is another opportunity to thunder drop onto 5 enemies in the DLC mission pack, specifically on the mission called "Checkpoint".

Yeah, I've tried on UGC missions with no luck. Best to just do it during Masquerade.

Ones you meat "nix" lady that can teleport, she will hold 5 enemies for you.
If you don't get it in first try, turn around and run into the water in the sump to kill yourself.

In the "Cold Snap" mission, the unarmed Milita doesn't count as enemies. It's still possible to get this trophy by hitting five ice conduits in one blast, I managed to this on the enemy group farthest from the mission start.

I got it in the first mission you meet Nix , after you burn the banners. I wasn't even trying for this , guess I got lucky. The mission is Desperate Times , good luck

This was easy on the Flood Town mission "The Dunbar Beam". At the end, when the monsters attack the destroyed building where Zeke is, they'll just stand around on the 'ground floor'. Just keep Thunder Droping into a group of 5+ until this unlocks.
