Resident Evil 5

Resident Evil 5 Trophies
Shoot the Messenger
Defeat 3 Agitator Majini in one playthrough of 'Desperate Escape.'  

The Agitator Majinis' are the guys dressed in black and white with the megaphones. If done correctly, there will always be a cutscene to announce their arrival. There are only three found in the game, so if you miss one you’ll have to start all over again. Check out the video below which nicely lays out the locations and requirements to make each one appear. Note that the video describes a glitch where the trophy is obtained after only killing two of the Agitators. Unfortunately I was not so lucky and had to deal with all three for the trophy to pop.

***Much thanks to the fellas at RoosterTeeth for creating this excellent video!***

What a bitch this was, how you would have figured this out alone is beyond me. Still after an hour and ten game this is what I've put together from various guides as I found a small hole in the excellent video on the guide here.

First: Kill EVERYTHING in the area then open the gate with the key, then kill the Majini that drop down. Now when you do the assist jump he should spawn and run around on the dish like thing.

Second: When the area is clear he still may not have spawned. I found this was because there were still some enemies hiding in the huts on top of the gate you entered through that you couldn't see so start spamming the huts and the walkway with fire from the two mounted grenade cannons and they should run out so you can kill them. When they're all dead he sho

should spawn but be careful he's bought some friends with rocket launchers!

Third: In the showdown once the timer has been bumped back up due to Doug being harassed by some flying B.O.W's wait until it hit's about 35 - 40 seconds then make you're way to the lift as at around 30 - 28 seconds he will arrive in the lift with two fat friends so be careful and try to spam him quickly as time is against you.

Note 1: The first and third will always spawn the parasites when you kill them so be ready with flash grenades cause they don't count as dead until the parasite is dead.

Note 2: If you die before getting to a check point the game won't count the kill so you may as well restart if that's all you're doing.

Note 3: If you're doing this in conjunction with the Way of the Warrior Trophy, odd's are you'll see that before you bust the final gate and definitely before the last Agitator unless you're sprinting.

Note 4: This is based on what I've seen online but there is talk of a glitch that will give you this trophy after the second Agitator, I believe this is a 360 glitch only not a PS3 glitch so it only affects the Achievement the Trophy.

Hope that helps anyone who's pulling their hair out over this.

I don't know why but the first Agitator doesn't show up. I've killed every single enemy.

I have the same problem, first Agitator is not showing...I must have played ten games last night and no luck. I know that I need to kill all enemies in the first area but I am running around and there is no enemies left anywhere....therefore no Agitator also!

Stupid game!!!
