inFAMOUS Second Son is a PS4 exclusive game in which you play as Delsin Rowe, a young man who gained super powers during an accident. Over the course of the story you will discover 4 different powers. Don't worry if you missed the previous inFAMOUS games. This is not a direct sequel and therefore you will be able to follow the story without a problem, even if you have never heard of inFAMOUS before. This does not tie in at all with the previous games, except for the fact it is the same universe.

 

The game is super user-friendly and marks all collectibles, side missions and other events on your map. Most things are fairly self-explanatory and you won't need many tips to earn this platinum trophy. There are no missable trophies, except for the karma specific mission trophies. As you will be doing a good and an evil playthrough anyway, chances are you won't miss these, but they are technically missable if you choose the wrong mission. Just remember, blue is good and red is evil. All in all, it's a very quick and very enjoyable game for a platinum trophy.

Step 1 - Play Through the Story on Easy Difficulty

 

In the beginning you should only focus on the story to unlock new powers and abilities. It does not matter whether you do your good or bad Karma run first. There is no big advantage to either side. Just enjoy the game and do what you like. You can change the difficulty in the Options Menu. To access this menu, pause the game and press :triangle:. The game defaults to normal difficulty, you can change it to easy if you like to make things go quicker. There isn't that much difference between easy and normal though. The main thing you want to focus on is that you stick to your Karma, so that you can reach its fifth level to unlock the respective trophy. In other words: only do good or bad things. You will want to either do all the good main missions (blue icons when you have a choice), or all the evil main missions (red icons when you have a choice). You should also treat enemies and civilians according to your karma.

 

If this is your good playthrough, make sure you don't kill any civilians and restrain enemies instead of killing them (Press :triangle: when given the chance, cannot be done to all enemies). Also, when using the neon power, make sure you shoot them in the leg and not the head. Shooting them in the leg gives you good karma, the head bad karma.

 

If you choose to do your evil playthrough now, then just do the exact opposite as listed above. Kill civilians, do the evil side missions, make evil choices when given the chance etc. Also during this step, you want to make sure to get 10 kills with the ammo boxes. This trophy is a pain to get post game, so to make your life a lot easier you should try and get the 10 whenever you have chances to shoot ammo boxes. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following, or maybe more trophies:

 

(B)

(H)
Sacrifice
or
Ruthless

(B)
(H)
Temperance
or
Malice

(B)

or

or

(G)

or

(S)
True Hero
or
Infamous

 

 

Step 2 - 100% Completion and Misc Trophies

 

InFAMOUS Second Son is a very player friendly game and marks all of the collectibles, events and side missions on the world map for you. Simply put a marker on your map to locate whatever you need. When you scroll over a district on the map, you can also see an overview of how many things are left. You should always start by taking out the D.U.P. mobile command and interference towers. This will reveal all collectibles and side missions in an area and also clear out a lot of the enemies that would otherwise get in your way. Clearing up every district will give you 100% completion, which is needed for a fair few of the trophies. You will also want to clear up any other trophy you may have missed, such as the combat ones, or the other miscellaneous ones. You may also need to reach level 5 in your specific karma choice, if you didn't get that in step 1. At the end of this step you should have the following trophies:

 

(B)

Everybody Out

(B)
Spin-off

(B)
Everyone's a Critic

Just Say No

(B)
Freedom of Speech

Step 3 - Expert Mode on Opposite Karma

 

WARNING: BEFORE STARTING A NEW GAME, MAKE SURE THE DIFFICULTY IS SET TO EXPERT ON THE OPTIONS MENU. ONCE IT IS, YOU ARE FREE TO START A NEW GAME. IF YOU FORGET TO DO THIS, THEN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS CHANGE IT AS SOON AS YOU GAIN CONTROL OF DELSIN.

 

Again, simply play through the story. You do not need to bother with the side stuff, only do the side missions to get your karma up/down for the level 5 trophy you don't already have. The only difference this time is that you always have to choose the Karma option that you didn't choose on your first playthrough. So if you did a good playthrough in step 1, make sure to do an evil playthrough in this step by picking all the red choices/missions. Expert difficulty is not hard at all. Just keep your distance to enemies, upgrade your powers with blast shards and quickly run away when you are badly wounded. For more tips on expert mode, refer to the trophy guide. At the end of this step you should have the following trophies, and your platinum. Congrats!

WARNING: BEFORE STARTING A NEW GAME, MAKE SURE THE DIFFICULTY IS SET TO EXPERT ON THE OPTIONS MENU. ONCE IT IS, YOU ARE FREE TO START A NEW GAME. IF YOU FORGET TO DO THIS, THEN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS CHANGE IT AS SOON AS YOU GAIN CONTROL OF DELSIN.

 

Whatever you do, do not change the difficulty at all on your expert playthrough, doing so will void the trophy. Expert difficulty isn't hard at all, it is on par with the previous inFAMOUS games if you have played those ones. This trophy would have been harder if the main story was longer, but as the main story only takes 6hrs to complete, this should be no trouble. You do not need to clear any of the D.U.P districts, just complete the main story for this trophy. Here are some basic strategies and things to remember:

  • Keep your distance to enemies. If the enemies are very close to you, they will kill you very quickly.
  • It's best to stay on rooftops. Enemies cannot follow you there so quickly and you have good cover.
  • Run away or hide when you are wounded. On Expert difficulty your health takes longer to recover. Just go up to a rooftop and wait until your health has replenished.
  • Get all the blast shards you can find to upgrade your powers. It will come in handy.
  • Don't waste your time with side missions and D.U.P. mobile command units. You can change back the difficulty to easy after you are done with the story and do these things later.
  • Use :l2: to zoom in and go for headshots. Headshots do a lot of extra damage.
  • Use the neon power a lot, hitting weak spots usually results in a one hit kill.
  • When you are on the island, during Hank's mission, or any other place with smoke and a roof, you can use Orbital Drop to glitch you bacl full health. Simply press :down: with a full karmaic streak, the animation will fail and you will land again, with full health and the ability to use it again. Thanks TheManUtdFan for the tip.
  • Save your :r1: attacks for large groups of enemies, armored vehicles and special enemies.

Boss Fight Tips

[spoiler=bossfight]Eugene: He is the first proper boss in the game, and he is fairly easy to beat. You want to use the :r1: attack with the neon power to hurt him, this does the most damage to him. If you run out of projectiles, then simply absorb some more neon out of the crystals. A neon crystal will respawn every time the arena changes. Also, when you are shooting him, make sure to hide behind the wide concrete pillars. This way you can dodge all of his attacks with ease and pretty much nothing will hit you.

 

Augustine #1: This is a fairly easy fight. All you need to do is shoot the "concrete shield" around her until it breaks. Once it has, keep shooting her and she will fall to the floor. All you have to do then is go up to her and press :square:. Repeat until you can use Orbital Drop. Now the second phase of the fight, you use video power. Simply do the same as before, use :r1: to break her shield and then :r2: to shoot her once she can be shot. Then, press :square: on her when she is on the floor. You'll get the karmic ability and you can finish her off.

 

Augustine #2: The final fight in the game isn't really that bad. For the first section, it's basically the same as you did in the first fight you had with her (mentioned above). Once you have defeated her, you'll have to watch a cutscene and you'll be given concrete powers. Now, at first you won't be able to do anything. Just keep dodging her attacks until Eugene throws a core relay down for you to absorb. You will get about 4 of them, and each will come after a set amount of time in the fight has passed. Once you have all the powers, I advise you upgrade the concrete powers if you have any shards on you, but this isn't necessary. All I upgraded was the :r2: attack, for extended shots and the 10% and 20% health resistances. The fight takes a while to do, but the basic pattern is to keep shooting her, then when she comes running towards you, boulder dash to the other side of the lobby. When she shoots projectiles at you, this can be tricky to avoid. What I did was to run back and forth with boulder dash as soon as she fired at me. I would never get hit this way.

Finish the story with Good Karma

 

To unlock this trophy you must have any good karma level (blue) at the end of the last story mission. You do not have to max out your good karma to get this. Simply stick to good choices during the story and engage in random events to build up your karma. Even if you are a spec into the the good karma zone, you will still get this trophy. The trophy will unlock after the credits. See True Hero for what you can do to get good karma.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/6b0.jpg Rebellion (G)

Finish the story with Evil Karma

 

To unlock this trophy you must have any evil karma level (red) at the end of the last story mission. You do not have to max out your evil karma to get this. Simply stick to evil choices during the story and engage in random events to build up your karma. Even if you are a spec into the the evil karma zone, you will still get this trophy. The trophy will unlock after the credits. See Infamous for what you can do to get evil karma.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/99b.jpg Everybody Out (B)

Rescue 10 suspects from suspicion pens

 

Note: These side activities will give you good karma. You can make them respawn instantly if you save your game, then load the save you just made. Go back to the spot where you saw them and the cage will be locked again.

 

These events occur at set locations on the map, they can be found mainly near where the D.U.P command centers were. They are cages, and are marked on the mini map by a small blue circle with a lock in the center of it. All you have to do is go up to the lock and swipe right on the touch pad. This will open the door and free the civilians. Repeat 10 times for the trophy. This is what the cages look like:

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/0e8.jpg Spin-off (B)

Beat down 10 sign twirlers

 

Note: These side activities will give you evil karma. We highly advise you do this trophy on your evil karma playthrough. You can make them respawn instantly if you save your game, then load the save you just made. Go back to the spot where you saw them and they will be back there again.

 

These events occur at random locations on the map, but sign spinners are mainly found on the northern part of the city, rather than the south. They are marked on the map by a red circle with a rectangle in the middle of it. In game, they are a civilian spinning an advertising sign about. All you have to do is shoot them, this will give you bad karma. Repeat 10 times for the trophy. Also, be careful not to cause a scene near them, or have D.U.P start shooting. This will cause them to run off and the icon will disappear from the mini-map. However, you can still kill them and get credit for it, you'll just have to guess which civilian they were. This is what they look like:

Take out 10 street musicians

 

Note: These side activities will give you evil karma. We highly advise you do this trophy on your evil karma playthrough. You can make them respawn instantly if you save your game, then load the save you just made. Go back to the spot where you saw them and they will be back there again.

 

These events occur at random locations on the map, but musicians are mainly found in the northern part of the city, rather than the south. They are marked on the map by a red circle with a musical note in the middle of it. In game, they are a civilian playing an instrument, usually a guitar. All you have to do is shoot them, this will give you bad karma. Repeat 10 times for the trophy. Also, be careful not to cause a scene near them, or have D.U.P start shooting. This will cause them to run off and the icon will disappear from the mini-map. However, you can still kill them and get credit for it, you'll just have to guess which civilian they were. This is what they look like:

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/10d.jpg Just Say No (B)

Bust 10 drug dealers

 

Note: These side activities will give you good karma. You can make them respawn instantly if you save your game, then load the save you just made. Go back to the spot where you saw the activity and they will be back there again.

 

These events occur at set locations on the map, they can be found all over the city. They are marked on the mini-map by a small blue circle with a syringe in the center of it. All you have to do is kill all the drug dealers in the area (there is usually about 5 of them), then destroy the box of drugs. This is a little misleading, as you need to bust 10 groups rather than 10 individual dealers. So repeat 10 times for the trophy.

Disrupt 10 activist rallies

 

Note: These side activities will give you evil karma. You can make them respawn instantly if you save your game, then load the save you just made. Go back to the spot where you saw them and they will be back there again.

 

These events occur at random locations on the map, activist rallies are found all over the city. They are marked on the mini-map by a white circle with a line through it. In game, they are a group of people shouting and waving signs about. All you have to do is shoot one of them, this will give you bad karma. Repeat 10 times for the trophy. Here is what they look like:

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/66e.jpg What Did You Call Me? (B)

Kill 10 obnoxious Akuran gang members

 

Note: These side activities will give you evil karma. You can make them respawn instantly if you save your game, then load the save you just made. Go back to the spot where you saw them and they will be back there again.

 

These events occur at random locations on the map, these guys are only found in the southern part of the city, you cannot find them on the northern half. They are marked on the mini-map by a red circle with a hammer and sickle in the center of it. In game, they just look like normal civilians but they are holding guns. All you have to do is shoot one of them, this will then provoke more to come and try to kill them. Simply kill them all and it'll let you know when you have done so. This is a little misleading, you need to kill 10 groups rather than 10 individual members. Repeat 10 times for the trophy.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/045.jpg Someone Your Own Size (B)

Rescue 10 escaped conduits from angry mobs

 

Note: These side activities will give you good karma. You can make them respawn instantly if you save your game, then load the save you just made. Go back to the spot where you saw them and they will be back there again.

 

These events occur at random locations on the map, the guys are only found in the southern part of the city, you cannot find them on the northern half. They are marked on the mini-map by a blue circle with a rectangle in the middle of it. In game, they are lying on the floor with a bunch of civilians kicking and shouting at them. All you have to do is go up to the prisoner on the floor, and press :triangle: to heal them. Repeat 10 times for the trophy.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/31e.jpg Walk It Off (B)

Heal 10 wounded civilians

 

Throughout the game you will see wounded civilians lying on the floor in random areas. All you have to do is go up to them and press :triangle: to heal them. You should be doing this on your good playthrough anyway, as doing this gives you good karma. Simply heal 10 civilians and the trophy will unlock.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/2f4.jpg Kicking and Screaming (B)

Finish off 10 wounded enemies or civilians

 

This is the opposite to Walk it Off, as this time you have to execute them and enemies also count towards the trophy. Throughout the game you will see wounded civilians lying on the floor in random areas. All you have to do is go up to them and press :square: to execute them, this will give you evil karma. You can also do this to enemies too, sometimes you won't kill them and they will lie on the floor with an option to restrain them, or to execute them. Executing them gives you evil karma. Simply do this 10 times and the trophy will unlock, you will more than likely get this without even trying on your evil playthrough.

Achieve Level 5 Good Karma

 

Level 5 is the maximum karma status you can reach. You may unlock this near the end of the game, but chances are you won't unlock it by doing only the story missions. This trophy is the harder out of the two, as getting good karma is harder than getting bad karma. Here is what you should do to get this trophy in the quickest time possible.

  • Always choose the blue options in missions, you should be doing this anyway on your good playthrough.
  • Always heal civilians on the floor.
  • Always restrain enemies when they surrender, or are on the floor.
  • Complete drug bust activities.
  • Hit enemies in the leg with the neon power.
  • Rescue civilians trapped in cages.
  • Heal prisoners being attacked by mobs

Hopefully post game you should be near the end of level 4. If you are lower than that, you will need to do a lot of grinding. Just keep going around completing drug bust activities and healing civilians until you get to level 5. This shouldn't be needed though if you avoided doing evil things as much as you could on your good playthrough. Here's an additional tip to easier raise your good karma, thanks to Dougiefresh613

 

When i beat the game on my second playthrough I had about three quarters of a level to go to get to Hero level. If you find a drug bust, complete it, then die, when you respawn it will pop back up again close to you on the map. It makes it much faster to farm karma, well good karma anyway.

Achieve Level 5 Evil Karma

 

Level 5 is the maximum karma status you can reach. You will more than likely unlock this on your evil playthough near the end of the game. This trophy is the easier out of the two, as getting evil karma is much easier than getting good karma. Here is what you should do to get this trophy in the quickest time possible.

  • Always choose the red options in missions, you should be doing this anyway on your evil playthrough.
  • Always execute civilians on the floor.
  • Killing cops and civilians.
  • Killing musicians.
  • Killing activist groups.
  • Killing Akuran gang members.
  • Killing D.U.P. enemies.
  • Always execute enemies when they surrender, or are on the floor.
  • Hit enemies in the head with the neon power.
  • Kill civilians trapped in cages.
  • Kill prisoners being attacked by mobs.

Hopefully post game you should be near the end of level 4, but more than likely you'll be on level 5. If you aren't though, just run around the city and kill all the civilians you can see and use the neon power to headshot enemies.

Collect half the Blast Shards

 

See Shardcore

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/dfb.jpg Shardcore (S)

Collect all the Blast Shards

 

To unlock all collectible locations on your map, you need to destroy the D.U.P. mobile command center(s) in any given district. Destroying them in one of the districts will reveal all collectibles in that district. These mobile commands are shown on the map from the beginning on. Shutting them down will reveal all enemy locations, all blast shard locations and all side activity locations. Blast shards will then be shown as blue dots. They are located on drones and you get some when you destroy the D.U.P command centers and scanning stations. Many of the drones are flying, so you need to shoot it out of mid air. Most of the drones though are resting in set locations. All you have to do is shoot them, then you can absorb the blast shard contained within it. You will unlock this trophy while going for Clean Sweep. This is what a resting drone looks like:

Shutting them down will reveal all enemy locations, all blast shard locations and all side activity locations. Cameras are located on the side of buildings, they are different to the ones you destroy while going for the Big Brother trophy. The cameras are pretty big, so it is easy to see them on the side of buildings, and they are marked on the mini-map. Simply shoot them until they break. You will unlock this trophy while going for Clean Sweep. This is what the cameras look like:

Shutting them down will reveal all enemy locations, all blast shard locations and all side activity locations. Each district has one audio log side activity. All you have to do is use your mobile phone (Accessed by pressing :up:) and follow where the signal is coming from. It will tell you how many meters you are from the audio log. Once you get within three meters, it'll let you press the touch pad to collect the audio log. You will unlock this trophy while going for Clean Sweep.

Defeat all the D.U.P. Secret Agents

Destroying them in one of the districts will reveal all collectibles in that district. These mobile commands are shown on the map from the beginning on. Shutting them down will reveal all enemy locations, all blast shard locations and all side activity locations. Each district has one secret agent activity. All you have to do is look in the given area for the picture of the civilian that is up on the screen. As soon as you spot them, or stare at them long enough they will run off and you need to chase them. The easiest way to kill them is by using the :r1: attack with the concrete power, as this has a very wide and far radius. You will unlock this trophy while going for Clean Sweep.

Destroy all the D.U.P. Hidden Cameras

 

To unlock all collectible locations on your map, you need to destroy the D.U.P. mobile command center in any given district. Destroying them in one of the districts will reveal all collectibles in that district. These mobile commands are shown on the map from the beginning on. Shutting them down will reveal all enemy locations, all blast shard locations and all side activity locations. There are a total of 15 cameras, each district has one camera in it except for one, which has three. The cameras can be a little tricky to find, as they are very small and usually it is hard to identify exactly where they are. If you have any trouble finding any of them, then please refer to the video below.

Complete all the Stencil Art

 

Stencil Art is marked by a spray can symbol on the map. All you have to do is go up to them and press :down:. What you want to do is turn the Dualshock 4 on it's side, so you are holding it like a spray can, then shake it. Once you have done this you just need to use :r2: to spray the open areas on the stencil. Keep doing this until you complete the drawing. There is nothing hard about these at all, you just get to see some pretty cool drawings. Also, picking the blue graffiti option at the start will give you good karma, and picking the red option will give you evil karma.

 

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/d1b.jpg Prank Call (B)

Complete a District Showdown

 

To unlock a district showdown you must bring the enemy control within a territory below 30%. This can be done by doing side activities and finding collectibles. Each district has one showdown. It's basically a final fight against the D.U.P. Agents that are stationed in the district.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/47c.jpg Total CARnage (B)

Destroy 5 cars in 5 seconds

This can easily be done by using the Cinder Missile Smoke Power. Fully upgrade this ability so that you can carry five missiles. Consume smoke (marked with brown dots on the mini-map) to gain maximum missiles. Wait on a road until 5 cars are lined up in front of you. Now shoot each car with a missile in quick succession. There are also lots of parking areas around the map. Cars spawn there randomly and sometimes you can find more than 5 parked vehicles in one location.

 

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nPoDMcGNBk]inFAMOUS Second Son - Total CARnage Trophy Guide - YouTube[/ame]

 

Alternatively, you can use the smoke powers karmic move, orbital strike. This has a huge damage radius and will blow up many cars. If you head to where I am in the video below, you will find an area that has 6 cars all huddled up together in one group. Now, you need to fill your karma meter up in order to use the orbital strike move. You do this by getting 7 instances of the same karma. For example, say I incapacitated (Good Karma) 7 enemies using the neon power by shooting enemies in the feet, this will reward me with the karmic ability to use. But say in those kills, I performed a bad karma move by shooting an enemy in the head, it would reset the meter and I would need to get 7 kills again. This may sound confusing, but it's actually pretty easy to do and you'll have this ability given to you without you even trying half the time.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/849.jpg Drop Everything (B)

Comet Drop over 170 meters

This can only be obtained after beating the story! You need to climb up the tallest building in the game, which is located in Uptown. The way up the building will be blocked until you reach the final story mission. After beating the final mission you need to return to this place in free roam mode. Follow the same path you took during the story. You start by dashing through an air vent (Smoke Power) and then jump from platform to platform. Once you reach the top you need to consume Video Power. Use this power to glide up the final wall. There's a satellite dish on the rooftop. Glide towards the satellite dish and you will be tossed further up into the air. Quickly use a double air surge (press :circle: twice in a row) and then hold down :square: to perform a Comet Drop. You need to land on the or very close to street level! It is important that you dash forward far enough so that you won't hit any obstacles on your way down. You may not hold :circle: long enough or you won't reach 170 meters.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/d2a.jpg Keep It Up (B)

Stay in the air for more than 45 seconds

 

The easiest way to get this trophy is to wait until you have completed the game, and have unlocked the concrete power. You can consume concrete from fallen enemies. With this power, you can hover in the air for an exceptional amount of time. What you want to do is head to any tall building, with the concrete power equipped. Now, you can buy the "Double Jump" and "Triple Jump" abilities so you can get much higher in the air, but this isn't needed depending on how high the building you have climbed is. Now all you need to do is jump off the edge of the building and hover using either :cross: or :l1:. If you have the two aforementioned abilities then you can let go of either :cross: or :l1: and then press either one again to jump in the air to get higher. Here is a video showing you how it is done:

 

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKuKDPrPKnY]inFAMOUS: Second Son - Keep it Up Trophy Guide - YouTube[/ame]

 

If you don't want to wait until post game, you can do this after unlocking the Video Power. It's unlocked automatically during the second half of the story. You also have to buy the "Airwave" ability from the Video skill tree. Go to the tallest skyscraper on the northern island. It is located in Belltown district in the north-eastern part of the map. Make sure you have the Video Power activated, climb up the building and fly into a satellite dish to be tossed into the air. Once you are in the air, hold down :cross: to glide and immediately pull back the left stick. The Airwave ability will now kick in and you drop significantly slower. It will take well over a minute until you reach the street level. Note that the trophy will not unlock until you hit the ground, so you'll need to time it yourself if you want to know when it is safe to fall.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/e98.jpg Put That Anywhere (B)

Defeat 10 enemies by detonating ammo crates

 

Throughout the game you will notice ammo crates. These are crates that have an explosive symbol on the side of them, and they explode when you shoot them. They are mainly found in D.U.P command center areas. This trophy is easy to get, you just have to focus on getting it so you don't make things harder on yourself when you have cleared all the enemies out of the city later on. All you have to do is shoot the crate when an enemy is nearby, the blast radius will hopefully kill them as the crate does a lot of damage to regular enemies. This can still be done after clearing the zone of enemies. From time to time, you will get a notice about "DUP Raids". The raids reset all enemies around DUP command centers. You will then see a red circle on the world map. Keep doing these raids until you get the trophy. You can also fast travel back and forth between these raids to make ammo crates and enemies respawn. This is what an ammo box looks like:

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/195.jpg Hat Trick (B)

Defeat an enemy using three different power sources

You have to play through the story to unlock 3 different powers!

 

There are four powers and they are marked with the following colors on your mini-map:

 

Smoke
= Brown (Chimneys, Destroyed Vehicles)

Neon
= Purple (Neon Signs)

Video
= Blue (Satellite Dishes, TVs and other Screens)

Concrete
= Grey (Fallen D.U.P Enemies, only available after beating the story)

 

To change to a different power, simply consume the respective power source. Look for a single enemy, or kill a group of enemies and leave only one alive. Now shoot this enemy one time with each power and kill him. If you have already cleared all areas of enemies you can still get this trophy! Simply wait for a DUP Raid (shown with red circle on the world map) or look for a patrolling vehicle. I personally did this on a roof, as there it is easier as enemies don't run off or you get confused which ones you have used powers on previously. Rooftops also have all 3 powers on them 99% of the time, so it is much easier to access them.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/ed0.jpg Double Smoke Stack Attack (B)

Dash through two red air vents without touching the ground and then Comet Drop on an enemy

 

Red air vents can only be used while the Smoke Power is active. You need to dash through two of them in a row by using :circle:. You may also use the glide ability (:cross:) to navigate between the air vents. To use Comet Drop you need to hold down :square: while in the air. A good location for this is in the Uptown district, which is on the southern island. This district has two DUP command centers and the one on the left side of the map is perfect for this.

 

The buildings to the south of the command center have lots of red air vents. You need to enter the first one on street level. Halfway up the building are additional air vents. Use double dash and glide to navigate to the second vent and you will be tossed into the air. Now you only need to Comet Drop to the platform that holds the DUP mobile command. There are lots of enemies on this platform. The enemy does not have to die, he just needs to stand in the impact zone. This can still be done after clearing the zone of enemies. From time to time, you will get a notice about "DUP Raids". The raids reset all enemies around DUP command centers. You will then see a red circle on the world map. Keep doing these raids until one takes place in the required location.

 

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nx7LtUoaC1M]inFAMOUS Second Son - Double Smoke Stack Attack Trophy Guide - YouTube[/ame]

 

Another easy way to get it is to just use same roof vent twice, so simply go onto it and then land on it again, then use the comet drop on an enemy. This method is detailed in the video below, on the final mission in the game. But, you can use this method on pretty much any rooftop in the game.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/cb3.jpg Cough Drop (B)

Comet Drop on three coughing enemies

 

This works best against large groups of drug dealers. They are marked with a blue syringe symbol on the mini-map. They spawn randomly, so you might need to run around for a bit. It doesn't matter what karma you have. Even if you have maxed out your bad karma, the drug dealers will still spawn. They also do keep spawning after beating the story and after clearing out all D.U.P. of each district. Simply throw a Sulfur Bomb at them (Smoke Power). The Sulfur Bomb is unlocked in the very beginning of the game and can be used by pressing :l1:. Once the bomb hits the dealers, wait for a second and Comet Drop on them. To perform a quick Comet Drop simply stand next to the enemies, jump in the air and then press Square. The more drug dealers there are, the better your chance of hitting 3 at once. Again, it's random how many dealers there are and where they are located. A little jump from the street level will suffice. If you have good Karma you can also buy the upgrades "Corrosive Fumes" and "Giant Sulfur Bomb". It's not needed, but it will increase the duration and radius of the Sulfur Bomb and makes this trophy a tiny bit easier.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/41b.jpg Make Fetch Proud (B)

Hit three weak points with Neon Beam in 6 seconds

 

About 1/4 into the game, you will meet fetch, one of the escaped conduits you are after. She will give you the Neon Powers. This essentially allow you to shoot lasers and such. What you have to do for this trophy is when you hold down :l2: you will notice that enemies have a red mark on their head and a blue mark on their feet. These are the weak points, and can only be seen when you are holding down :l2:. What you want to do is hit three of these weak points on three different enemies in 6 seconds. This is actually every easy to do, as the weak spot is easy enough to hit. If you use the neon power a lot in the game, you will more than likely unlock this without trying. This can still be done after clearing the city of enemies. If you don't have this post game, this can also be done against drug dealers, which is probably the best choice as they are grouped together and are weak. Simply head to the syringe icons that appear on your mini-map from time to time to start them. Here is what the weak points look like:

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/54c.jpg Excessive Force (B)

Use a Karmic Streak attack to defeat exactly one enemy

 

All powers have a karmic streak attack, except for concrete. Now, you need to fill your karma meter up in order to use a karmic streak move. You do this by getting 7 instances of the same karma. For example, say I incapacitated (Good Karma) 7 enemies using the neon power by shooting enemies in the feet, this will reward me with the karmic ability to use. But say in those kills, I performed a bad karma move by shooting an enemy in the head, it would reset the meter and I would need to get 7 kills again. This may sound confusing, but it's actually pretty easy to do and you'll be given these karmic streak moves to use without even trying half the time.

 

Once you have your move, you want to fly around the rooftops and look for enemies. Usually they are in groups of 3. What you want to do is kill 2 of them using normal means, so only one is left. Then, press :down: to use the karmic streak move. The best move to use for this would be the orbital strike one, which is linked to the smoke power. This will send you flying up into the air, then crashing back down. If you only kill one enemy with the move, the trophy will unlock.

Great guide you two. :applause:

 

Very detailed guide. I see that you guys also decided to share videos on some of the trophies. :p

 

I'll be using this guide whenever I get a PS4.

Thanks :hug:

 

Yay, it's online :)

Enjoy the guide everyone.

 

Very easy game for a quick platinum trophy.

Yeah, I have 10hrs played and I just need my bad karma run and expert for plat. Kinda sucks it's so short :/

Great looking guide guys. :D Was considering trying out one with this but I'd rather play the story and enjoy the game than worry about writing the guide. :p

 

I found for Double Smoke Stack Attack that it can also be done [spoiler=hasfkjlaskasdfk]after the first part of the first fight with Augustine when the DUP soldiers come out when you're on the concrete island.

There are two stacks right on the ground that you can jump off of easily so it can be done there as well, if you don't want to go out of the way to get it after the story is done or in free roam.

Both MGS V: GZ and Infamous Second Son came out yesterday in the UK, I was going to get MGS V: GZ but the length (And Angry Joe's review) made me decide to get that later at a cheaper price and get this game.

 

Should get this week, will definitely be using guide, thanks in advance, great guide :)

When i beat the game on my second playthrough I had about three quarters of a level to go to get to Hero level. If you find a drug bust, complete it, then die, when you respawn it will pop back up again close to you on the map. It makes it much faster to farm karma, well good karma anyway.

 

Nice Guide though. :)

Just noticed, you guys have the wrong image for Reconciliation at the moment.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/1936/41b.jpg Reconciliation (G)

Finish the story with Good Karma

Seems the one on the main site is wrong too, but once that is fixed you'll probably have to change the url to the correct one once the main site has the correct image.

 

It also says "See Reconciliation for what you can do to get good karma.", but that should say True Hero instead I believe. :p

Is there any reason not to clear out the districts early in ones playthrough?

 

I'm doing it as I go along. hate grinding at the end. its more of a preference I'm guessing then a recommendation.

 

Also guide writes I'm pretty sure pressing L1 on musicians, rioters and sign holders doesnt give you bad karma. since it doesn't kill them. it just stuns them. But i may be wrong.

You can also get Keep It Up (B) very early on with the Smoke powers by dashing into the top of a vent over and over again. This will keep propelling you up into the air and will not count as touching the ground.

 

That's how I got it early in the game.

On the infamous trophy you say "getting evil karma is easier then getting bad karma". Have a feeling the "bad" should say "good". All in all another awesome guide, cheers. :applause:

 

Edit: also on blown cover you've included a sentence from inside track regarding collecting the audio log.
