In Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, players find themselves on the deadly streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), a PMC outfit that drops them in the middle of a drug war conflict for an assignment full of corruption and deceit. With the ability to unleash the power of ultimate destruction, players will need to work together as their objectives unravel, allegiances begin to blur and they face off against the ruthless cartel.

Step 1: Beat the game on easy/medium difficulty

The trophies for this game are really easy; just beat the game without worrying to much about them. Just have a look at the trophy list to have a general idea of what you should do. I recommend starting the game on medium difficulty to unlock Just a scratch, and so you're more prepared for your insane run, but you can also just play on easy and play just 1 act on normal before heading into insane. Even though it is kind of hard to die on easy, always use cover; good for getting your 500 cover kills out of the way sooner. I also really recommend playing with a partner. It's just so much more fun that way. Use Overkill as much as possible. Don't save it. You need 600 plus Overkill kills. Now, depending on how you kill opponents, you will earn money faster which in turn will fill your overkill meter faster, as well as leveling you up faster and of course earning more and more money.

Step 3 (optional): Clean up


After you beat the game once, you get special Chapters that you could play called Overkill missions, where you can get almost all your trophies done with, as well as getting all the money you need towards the buying all outfits, tattoos, masks, and weapons trophy. Under Missions, head to Select Missions to see them. Missions Rally Point, Assault, and Confrontation all have these missions (Depending on your pre order bonus). In this mode, you're in overkill mode and need to keep killing to keep overkill activate. There are tons of enemies, and depending on what you need, you can easily farming here. If you need melee kills, just keep meleeing enemies, or keep blowing up cars if you need the 50 destroy cars trophy or just keep raking in money if all you need is money. Unfortunately you can't farm the overkill trophies here since you can't activate just your partners overkill or just your overkill. See the Guide on what real chapters you need to farm for those trophies. Note: The Stats under the Main Menu for your profile progress towards trophies seem to be very off. Don't get scared if it says something should have unlocked by now. Also Thank you to scuzzybum & dimikiller for confirming that if your playing Coop on the same TV, the kills for both users count towards trophy progress.

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Trophy Guide

Printable Guide
Show completed trophies
Show secret trophies

47 trophies ( 35  23  )

  • Earn all Army of TWO™ The Devil's Cartel Trophies

  • Level up to Rank 5

    See Blood, Sweat and Guns.

  • Level up to Rank 15

    See Blood, Sweat and Guns.

  • Level up to Rank 25

    You'll level up by killing enemies, completing objectives, etc... You will probably not get this trophy on your first playthrough, but since you will need to complete at least two playthroughs, it will be reached eventually. I got it halfway through my insane run. You need roughly 500000 to reach level 25, which is almost unmissable if you are playing the game twice.

  • Fully customize a weapon with 6 customizable parts or more

    For this trophy you'll need to change your:

    • Stock
    • Magazine
    • Sight
    • Under Mount
    • Side Mount
    • Muzzle

    You need some money to do this first, so around mission 2/3, you should have enough money to get this. I recommend you customize your guns to your likings anyway. No reason to not upgrade your gun; it could only help you. Customize parts add to your damage, range, accuracy, reload speed. 2 ways you can enter your armory. Either in the Main Menu or at the end of a chapter. Not all Guns have 6 attachments. The following Guns have at least 6:

    Assualt: M4, AK47, FX-05, BR-19, M-KAR, MTAB-19
    LMG: SAW
    Shotgun: S-12
    SMG: MP-U45, Ruslan MK3, MK-IX
    Sniper: AMR-50

  • 200 targets killed in single Overkill (Triggered by you)

    To enter overkill, you'll need to fill the "white bar" on the middle/right of the screen, and press when it's full. To do this, you will need to kill enemies; once the bar is full, it'll stay like that, and you can trigger Overkill when you wish. You should get this trophy by simply going through the campaign twice. Depending on how you kill people you make more money and you fill your overkill meter faster.

    Kill is 10, then the following adds to your combo:
    headshot +10
    melee +10
    surprise +25
    decoy +25
    brute kill +25
    tag team +50
    saviour +50
    bait +75
    flank +75
    flawless breach +250.

    If you kill a lot of enemies quickly together with your teammate, multipliers add to this combo as well. When overkill is triggered, your character goes crazy. Everything slows down and his guns become unstoppable; anything in the area of his bullets will die. When you see there are no more enemies around, and you're in overkill, stop it by pressing the same buttons you used to activate it. The meter will be left off where you stopped it and it will now take less to fill it again. I didn't activate double overkill as much in playthrough 1 since i wanted to get the 2 trophies Overkill and Moocher over with and used Double overkill during my insane run, since when you trigger double overkill together it lasts nearly 3x the time single overkill does, which makes insane a little easier. See Double Trouble for more Information.

  • 500 targets killed while in cover

    To enter cover mode press near a object (mostly walls). This trophy will come naturally over the course of the game, and you'll probably unlock it towards the end of playthrough 1 or towards beginning of your second one. It will depend if you run and gun a lot, or just play it safe and use cover.

  • 200 targets killed in double Overkill

    Glitch warning: A lot of people, including myself, needed a lot more than 200 kills. Just keep killing. It will pop. Double Overkill is when both players activate overkill at the same time. To enter overkill, press . If you're playing with an AI partner, you will have to trigger your partner's overkill too, by pressing . If you are playing coop you and your partner need to press at the same time when your overkill bar is both full. After you get this trophy, stop activating the overkill at the same time, so you could work on Moocher and Overkill. My favorite chapters to keep farming these overkill trophies were chapter 8, 11, and 43. I farmed these after my 1st playthrough, since I didn't want to have to worry about it during my insane run.

  • 200 targets killed in single Overkill (Triggered by your partner)

    You will know that an Overkill is triggered by your partner when you enter Overkill without activating it. If you're playing with an AI partner, you can press to ask him to activate his Overkill, then again once your partner Overkill is ready to trigger it'll stay available for as long as you want. For a more in depth tips of the overkill trophies see here. tips on overkill moocher and double trouble

  • 100 targets killed using either an MMG or an MGL

    MMG and MGL stand for Mounted Machine Gun and Mounted Grenade Launcher. You should use all the Mounted weapons you come across, and choose to give support on a mounted weapon every time you're given the chance. After 2 playthroughs, you should easily have this. If you don’t, load up chapter 44 Burning Bridges where you spawn in a plane with a MGL, and kill and replay as many times as needed.

  • Destroyed 500 objects

    Because of the new Frostbite 2.0 engine, the scenery is pretty destructible. If you keep trying to nail enemies through walls and corners, you'll see just how much the scenery can get destroyed, but you can also shoot other objects; pretty much anything in the game is destructible and this trophy shouldn't be a problem. When you're in overkill mod,e things get destroyed a lot faster, so just shoot everything and anything you see in front of you. I had this well before the halfway mark of my 1st playthrough.

  • Buy All Guns

    For this trophy, you will need to buy every weapon in the game. For this, you will need to have 330,000 and be at least level 20, which you'll probably reach half way through your 2nd playthrough.

    Assault

    • M4 - Rank 1
    • M-KAR - Rank 1
    • AK-47 - Rank 2
    • X9 Tactical - Rank 2
    • FX-05 - Rank 2
    • BR-19 - Rank 4
    • MTAB-19 - Rank 10
    • M1 - Rank 12
    • FH-80 - Rank 16

    LMG

    • SAW - Rank 2
    • RPD - Rank 4
    • MG-23 - Rank 8
    • MG-40 - Rank 19

    Shotgun

    • LE-400 - Rank 1
    • ASG Combat - Rank 3
    • S-12 - Rank 11
    • DAO-X - Rank 14

    SMG

    • MP-U45 - Rank 2
    • Ruslan MK3 - Rank 3
    • SD3 - Rank 7
    • UCAP 9000 - Rank 11
    • MK-IK - Rank 18

    Sniper

    • SWAT-LR .300 - Rank 2
    • LONGSHOT R50 - Rank 6
    • SVD - Rank 10
    • AMR-50 - Rank 15

    Sidearm

    • M92 - Rank 1
    • Model 971 - Rank 2
    • M1911 - Rank 6
    • Falcon .50 - Rank 8
    • P226 - Rank 12
    • MAG-44 - Rank 20

    Note: The best tactic would be to have your 3 weapon of choice and just keep upgrading those , to avoid spending too much money on weapons you won't use.

    Also see Deep Pockets.

  • Buy All Outfits

    See Deep Pockets.

  • Complete the game on Insane

    To unlock this trophy, you will need to beat the game on Insane difficulty. You must finish the game at least once on another difficulty, before Insane is unlocked. If you are Playing COOP, make sure you and your partner are on insane difficulty. You will keep your rank and all of your purchases from your first playthrough, and these will all help as you try to beat the game on insane. All kill related trophies carry over as well.

    General tips for surviving Insane:
    -Like every game on hard, take your time.
    -Do not rush through any part of the game, unless you are in Overkill which you wanna kill quickly.
    -Keep your distance from enemies.
    -Sometimes just hide. Let your teammate do most of the work when possible.
    -Use cover. You should always be in cover while in a firefight. A lot of cover in the game is destroyable. Find new cover quickly.
    -Be smart with your use of Overkill. Try to remember the hard areas from playthrough 1, and activate it when you know there are a lot of enemies in the area.
    -Aside from the last few chapters, Insane was very easy compared to most FPS hard or insane difficulty. Only the last 3 or so chapters are a little tricky.

  • Buy all Weapons, Tattoos, Masks and Outfits

    This will likely be the final trophy that you will unlock. You need to beat the game on insane, and be level 25 to be able to unlock everything. 2.5 Playthroughs should be enough, or use the Overkiller missions to farm money after 2 playthroughs. As well as the guns and outfits trophies, you will need to purchase 22 tattoos and 56 masks. There is a $ sign next to anything that you haven't bought yet. Aside from guns, all these are pretty useless so don't waste your time buying anything till the end. You need about 650,000 to buy everything. Each playthrough is around 250,000.

  • Perform 250 Flank, Surprise and/or Tag Team kills

    Simply ask your partner to take the aggro by pressing , and kill the enemies while you are "invisible". If you use a silencer on your gun, you will get a lot of surprise kills since the enemies won't know where they are getting shot from. Also, you will get tons of tag team kills so this trophy will easily be unlocked by playthrough 2.

  • You took the Aggro for 100 Flank kills

    This is the opposite of Army Of TWO™; this time you will take the aggro and let your partner shoot the enemies. You'll know that you took the aggro when you get a "Bait" or "Decoy" bonus. If you don't have this by the time you're done with playthrough 2, start a mission on easy, and stand in front of an enemy and let Bravo take him out. You'll get a Bait or Decoy bonus when doing so.

  • Perform 100 Headshots

    Simply aim for the head, and you should have this in no time. You will know that you got a headshot when you get headshot bonuses.

  • Perform 100 melee kills

    To perform a melee kill, just approach an enemy and press to melee kill him. On Easy difficulty, this is easy to accomplish since it's hard to die. Also, when you trigger overkill mode, you can run and melee people without having to worry about dying.

  • You didn’t go wounded once in a mission (medium, hard or insane)

    This is easier done on medium difficulty (obviously) and you have to complete an entire mission without any members of the partnership needing to be revived. Take your time and don't rush; let your partner do all the work and take cover and blind fire to be safer.

  • Perform a x10 Co-op Combo

    This shouldn't be a problem, but if you don't get it naturally try this method.

    Original Posted by Pierce:

    "Do this solo in chapter 16 "Suicide Run". This is the last chapter under the mission "Local Contact". Alpha and Bravo will load up a truck with C4 and drive towards an enemy compound, where they will eventually meet Fiona. You can either do the driving, or man a MMG on the truck and do the shooting. Choose to drive. As you drive down the streets, try to hit the enemies along the way. Your AI partner will also shoot at the targets you are pointing at, resulting in co-op combos. At the end of the run, the truck will crash through a gate and a cutscene starts. You should get the trophy then. If not, Start>Restart Checkpoint and try again. (I did this on Medium difficulty.)"

    Credit goes to Sunnygrg for the video guide.

     

    If you still haven't been able to get this, try an overkill contract after you have finished the game. Run and kill quickly with your partner.

  • Perform a melee kill while you're in Overkill

    The trophy description says it all. Once you get in overkill, just go near an enemy and press . You will get plenty of melee kills in overkill so i wouldn't worry about this trophy.

  • Perform 10 cover to cover transition in a row

    To make a cover transaction, you want to be in cover and look at another hiding spot until a little "Blue Arrow" appears, just tap , and your character will move to that cover. Repeat this 10 times in a row. You can use the same 2 covers over and over again till this trophy pops. You can get this as early as the 1st chapter during the tutorial.

  • Complete a mission (excluding New Blood) with a human partner

    You will get this trophy without trying if you're playing with a friend (or not friend), whether playing slip-screen or online co-op.

    If you don't have a buddy, you can get someone on the Co-op Partners Thread and play any mission except New Blood. You could easily do this by yourself shuffling 2 controllers when playing on easy. I would recommend Act 4 if you are doing it this way, since you have allies in the level and its a very short mission. Only 2 chapters long.

    After you have beat all 49 chapters on any difficulty this will pop along with Revenge is a Bitch.

  • Kill 10 Brutes in Physical Confrontation

    When an heavy enemy gets close, you will have to complete a mini-game by mashing button, which will kill the brute instantly. This will be the easier and faster way of dispatching a brute, so you'll probably get more than 10. If there is any way you don't have this after you're done with both playthroughs load chapter 48 or 49. More than 10 are there.

  • Kill 3 targets with 1 grenade

    To throw a grenade, press . For this trophy, you'll just have to find a bunch of enemies close to each other, and throw a grenade in the middle of them. There are literary hundreds of places this could be down. There are enemies everywhere. Every time you have a bunch of enemies in groups, throw a grenade and hope to get it.

  • Kill 3 targets or more using an explosive object in any level

    Some people get this early on the game, but some don't; it's a bit of a luck based trophy.

     

    This method will get you the trophy for sure.
    Credit goes to Yoda91192 for finding this spot

    Originally Posted by Pierce

There are 2 red gas canisters on the right, you want to shoot the further one, which is next to a riot shield enemy. Do not shoot immediately when you enter the room. There are only 2 enemies on the right side of the room (the riot shield guy and one other). Wait a bit for a 3rd guy to run forward towards the canister, then blow all 3 of them away. Don't worry if the overkill for room breaching runs out, time it such that you have all 3 within range. If you don't get the trophy, restart checkpoint and try again.

  • Perform 50 Backstabs

    To peform a backstab on an enemy, you will have to approach him unnoticed, and perform a melee kill (press ) from behind. You can do this in combat when your partner is aggro on the enemies. You will get a backstab bonus when you successfully melee an enemy from behind. You can link this trophy with Army Of TWO™. I easily got backstab kills when I was in Overkill mode. Since you are faster than you enemies, just run behind them and stab them. They could be aware of you; just need to make sure you melee them from behind. If this is your last trophy, load up Chapter 32, Scavengers. You are sneaking around looking for your weapons, so you can get 4-5 backstabs here easily. Make sure to crouch to not be heard.

  • Create your own Custom Mask

    See Michelangelo.

  • Apply the maximum number of layers on a customized mask

    Main Menu>Armory> Customize Operative>Custom Mask. 12 layers is the max number of layers you can create. You could either just keep pressing , and add the same white box over and over again for 12 layers, or you could get creative and build a kick ass mask and wear it. Its up to you.

  • Destroy 50 cars

    If you really focus on getting this trophy, you will get it around mission 2 or 3, but it shouldn't be a problem. It takes a about a clip or 2 grenades to blow up a car. In overkill mode though, it takes 1 or 2 bullets so whenever you enter overkill just aim for cars. You should have this midway/end into your 1 playthrough. Shooting the driver in the head and the car flipping over isn't good enough. The car needs to blow up. When your in overkill, aim for cars. Not only is this good for the trophy, but it also caused enemies around the cars to be killed as well.

  • Headshot a target while blind firing

    This is easily done with the Blind Fire Camera Under Mount because you will have cross hairs even when blind firing. I got this without even knowing it was a trophy. When you're in cover, don't aim with and just fire with , and hopefully you'll get a headshot with it. It;s hard to aim so it may take a few tries, but nothing difficult.

  • Perform 10 melee kills on wounded targets

    When you see an enemy crawling for his life, approach him and press . You will have better luck getting the enemy on the floor by shooting his legs. If you shoot him in the Chest or Head, he will usually die.

  • Perform 50 Hat Shots

    A hat shot is when you shoot an enemies hat out of his head. You will probably get this trophy while going for Headache trophy. You won't get a bonus for hatshots, so you won't really know when it counts or not. I popped this very early into the game. Don't really have to worry about this trophy. Note: Very few people have said that they finished the game and have every trophy except this. This is almost impossible to happen, so it glitched on you. After your all finished with the game, delete all your saves and replay the game. You should have it within an hour.

  • Players simultaneously killed 2 unaware targets

    To do this, simply find 2 unaware enemies and sync up a shot, where each player targets a single target. This is very easy in Coop. When playing with a AI teammate its a bit tricker.

I got my trophy no problem w/ the AI in Mission 4 - Outside Contact, Chapter 13 - Observe and Detect. Shortly after the part where you take down the MMG and Cartel baddies, you'll have to enter this little building and breach a door on the other side of a hallway, perfect spot for the trophy here with two guys on the left, and another two on the right. Good luck, and hope this helped.
  • Make your first kill as a rookie (in Cause and Effect mission)

    You will get this trophy after getting your very first kill, after the Training Mission.
