Assassin’s Creed Origins is the latest installment in this long running franchise and the first to go back in time rather than forward. After criticism from the gaming community over the yearly “copy/paste” iterations of the series the developer, Ubisoft, decided to skip a year and focus on this game to do a complete overhaul on many of the systems we got so accustomed to. In total the development time took over 4 years and as a result we’ve been delivered the biggest open world and graphical enhancements we’ve ever seen in the series. The parkour has been simplified and works fluidly and the combat system has changed to a ‘hack-n-slash’ style with RPG elements added in to level your character and weapons. The game suffers from a few bugs and glitches (mainly graphical), but nothing game breaking or to worry about, these are your typical open world game bugs. Despite these bugs and the fact that the story leaves a bit to be desired for the hardcore fans, the game was very well received and is considered a return to form for the series.

Trophy wise this game is very easy, but long. If you focus solely on trophies you might be able to get the platinum trophy in between 40 and 50 hours. It’s much more likely that you’ll be spending closer to 60 hours though, because there’s a lot going on in the beautiful open world and it’s easy to get distracted. There are no difficulty related trophies so feel free to play the game on the easiest setting. The platinum covers most of the activities that can be done in the game and is an overall enjoyable ride. Have fun!




Step 1 – Complete the story while doing some side activities to level up.

If you want to get the platinum as quickly as possible, put the difficulty settings on easy as there is no penalty for doing so. Also note that the story trophies don't necessarily pop in chronological order so there's no need to worry about that.

In this step you will want to focus on completing the main missions, but you shouldn’t neglect the locations marked with a question mark. Ideally you clear all of those locations before moving on to the next area to save yourself a lot of time after completing the game. With the exception of two particular side missions which are tied to trophies, there is no need to complete any of them unless you want to use them to level up. The two side missions you do want to complete are found in the Lake Mareotis region (shortly after the prologue) and the UAB Nome region (late in the game). For further information on these missions please refer to the Seven Farmers and The Festival trophies in the guide below.

There are no missable trophies in the game, but take good note of the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle trophy, because if you don’t focus on that trophy from the start you’re looking at a lot of extra time needed to complete that trophy after finishing the game.

Although you get a lot of skill points to spend towards your skill tree during the game through levelling and completing tombs, upon completing the game and reaching maximum level (level 40) you won't have enough skill points to buy every available skill. The only way to get more skill points is to "overlevel" (you'll remain level 40 though), but the good news is you don't have to do this for trophies. There are quite a few trophies however that require you to use certain skills, so it's a good idea to focus on obtaining these skills as fast as you can. The skills you will want to focus on are the following:

Hunter Tree

  • Enhanced Predator Bow
  • Elite Ranger

Seer Tree

  • Dawn and Dusk
  • Sleep Darts
  • Poison Darts
  • Animal Taming
  • Pyromaniac (not strictly necessary but highly recommended)

Keeping all of the above in mind you can feel free to complete the story as everything can still be obtained in free roam afterwards.

At the end of this step you’ll have obtained, at the very least, these trophies:

  • First Steps
  • I'm Just Getting Started
  • The Sea
  • The Scarab
  • The Hyena
  • The Crocodile
  • The Lizard
  • The Siege
  • Wake Up!
  • Almost There
  • The End
  • You still need 8880...



Step 2 – Get to level 40

After finishing the story, lots of locations and maybe some side quests you’ll probably be close to the maximum level already. If you’re not quite there yet you’ll want to focus on hitting level 40 first, because some of the regions and some of the miscellaneous trophies require you to beat high level enemies. Although side quests give more experience points, the most time efficient way of levelling up is to explore all locations in the regions at or under your level. This will save you time later on when going for the Old Habits trophy, while side quests aren’t needed for trophies (with exception of the two mentioned in the previous step).


Step 3 – Complete all miscellaneous trophies

There are many miscellaneous trophies in this game most of which you won’t have to worry about because they will come naturally. None of them are particularly hard either, but the one trophy you will probably have to go out of your way for is the BOOM! trophy. Please refer to the trophy guide below for an efficient method to tackle this. Other than that, if you’ve been following this roadmap, by now you should have well over 100 trinkets which you will have to sell all at once to obtain the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle trophy. Although this trophy is not reported glitched, the time it takes to collect trinkets makes it that you might want to make a backup save first before going for this trophy just in case. Any other trophies that you might have not obtained naturally are simple and straightforward, but if you’re having difficulties anyway look up the trophy description below.

At the end of this step you’ll have obtained at least these trophies:

  • I'm a Legend
  • I'm Done Learning
  • Overheating
  • For Those About to Die…
  • Fatality!
  • Ben-Hur
  • Road Rage
  • The Harder They Fall
  • Slasher
  • The Arrow Whisperer
  • Circle of Life
  • Shadow of Egypt
  • I Know My Land
  • Raider of the Lost Tomb
  • I Can See My House From Here!
  • Set-up Date
  • Reporter
  • Overdesign
  • Archer of the Month
  • BOOM!
  • Rider's Licence
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
  • Defy Authority
  • Handy Man
  • Roooaaarrrrr!
  • Seven Farmers
  • The Festival
  • Smash!
  • Free as a Bird
  • Triathlete
  • Run For Your Life!
  • Elementary, My Dear Bayek
  • Namaste



Step 4 – Locations

This entire last step is dedicated to a single trophy called Old Habits. This trophy requires you to find and complete all the locations on the map. There are many locations and the map in this game is huge. On top of that the white question marks that indicate the locations are sometimes hard to spot against the light colored backgrounds. On your way to completing all of the different locations you will also net yourself a few other location based trophies. For tips on how to find the locations and on how to make them better visible, please refer to the trophy guide below.

At the end of this step you’ll have obtained these trophies:

  • Words of Wisdom
  • Stargazer
  • Master Diver
  • Where's My Black Flag?
  • Old Habits

The Hidden Ones DLC:

Overview:

  • Estimated trophy difficulty: 3/10 (Personal opinion)
  • Offline trophies: 8 (4, 4)
  • Online trophies: 0
  • Approximate amount of time to 100%: 6-8hrs (Personal opinion)
  • Minimum number of playthroughs: 1
  • Number of missable trophies: 0
  • Glitched trophies: 2 (Surgical Strikes & New Recruits )
  • Does difficulty affect trophies?: No
  • Do trophies stack?: No
  • Do cheat codes disable trophies?: No cheats available.
  • Additional peripherals required?: No.


Introduction:

Roughly two months after release, AC:O invites you back to Egypt with a story expansion that focuses on the Assassins (currently known as the titular Hidden Ones). This addition comes with an entirely new region called Sinai and has 4 sub-regions to explore. The Hidden Ones continues the same gameplay and mechanics from the main game, so don't expect any game-changers but I feel there's enough content here to warrant the (current) launch price without feeling like a blatant cash-grab.


Walkthrough:

Important!
- This guide assumes you are (at least) Level 40.
- Assume that the miscellaneous trophies will only pop in the Sinai region (aka the DLC area).
- Some trophies may pop after a small 5-10 second delay.
- When you boot up the game after installing The Hidden Ones, you will automatically acquire a quest called The Hidden Ones, that leads to a ferryman in Memphis who will take you to the new area.

Note on glitches!
There have been a few reports of 2 trophies glitching (Surgical Strikes & New Recruits ) and are sadly without known fixes other than replaying the story up to the point you can retry the required missions. Luckily that will only take an hour or two:
- Start a "New Game +" playthrough on Easy.
- Turn off "enemy auto level" (scaling of enemy difficulty).
- Play until you are allowed to leave Siwa.

Step 0: Brush up on the controls

If like me, it has been a while since you played, you might want a small refresher course on the general (default) controls.

Combat:
- L1: Toggle shield on/off
- L1 (Hold/Release): Raise/lower shield
- R1: Light attack
- R2: Heavy attack
- L2 (Hold): Aim bow. Whilst aiming, hold R2 to draw an arrow and release R2 to fire.

General:
- Up on D-Pad: to call Senu. Whilst controling Senu: hold L2 to scan for points of interest.
- Up on D-Pad (Hold): Eagle Vision Pulse (for investigating areas)
- Down on the D-Pad (Hold): Call mount

Step 1: Complete the Story and start 2 sidequests

Important! Prison Break requires you to free 20 Rebels so whenever you are at an enemy outpost, keep a look out for captured rebels (captives are marked as blue diamonds but keep in mind that civilians do NOT count).

Follow the main story until you are tasked with 3 assassinations: do these in the order of "required level". Each of these three targets are in a location where you can focus on a specific miscellaneous trophy. See Surgical Strikes .

After assassinating the third target, you will be directed back to the Bureau. Before continuing the main story, pick up the sidequests "Rise of the Shaqilat" inside the Bureau and "Shadows of the Scarab" to the west of the Bureau. Complete "Rise of the Shaqilat" right away (for the XP reward) but leave "Shadows of the Scarab" for the next step, as the recommended level is 44. See New Recruits .

By the end of this step you will have earned:

What time is it
Zip if Off
Walls of the Ruler
Surgical Strikes
The Greater Good

Step 2: Cleanup

Clean up the remaining miscellaneous trophies (including those you missed in the previous step) and finish the sidequest "Shadows of the Scarab".

By the end of this step you will have earned:

Team Play
Prison Break
New Recruits

Discovery Tour DLC:

Overview:

  • Estimated trophy difficulty: 1/10
  • Offline trophies: 3 (3)
  • Online trophies: 0
  • Approximate amount of time to platinum: 30min-2h
  • Minimum number of playthroughs: 21 tours
  • Number of missable trophies: 0
  • Glitched trophies: 0
  • Does difficulty affect trophies?: N/A
  • Do trophies stack?: N/A
  • Do cheat codes disable trophies?: N/A
  • Additional peripherals required?: N/A


Introduction:

Discovery Tour is a free mode that has been added with the 1.30 update for Assassin's Creed Origins. This update also adds a New Game + mode but fortunately or unfortunately, no trophies are attached to this mode. However, the Discovery Tour includes a new set of 3 bronze trophies which are very easy to unlock.

This mode will allow you to explore ancient Egypt without worrying about combat. You only need to follow the different tours and read/listen to your guide while enjoying the beauty of the game. You can also skip the conversations and get the trophies in ~30 minutes if you're not interested.

There are 75 tours but you only need to complete 21 of them (including the first mandatory "tutorial" tour), and it will take you about 2 hours to complete the required tours assuming you're not skipping.


Walkthrough:

Step 1: Complete the first tour with Aya.

In the main menu, you will see that the Discovery Tour has been added with the latest update. Start by accessing it and you will be introduced to this mode by completing a first tour with Aya in Alexandria. This tour works as a tutorial. Complete it and you'll get your first trophy.

Step 2: Complete all tours in the Daily Life category, switching characters.

Now that you've completed your first tour, it's time to complete 20 more. There are 75 tours in the game but you only need to complete those listed under the Daily Life category. Don't forget to take different characters after completing each tour as you need to complete a tour with 5 different characters. Note that you're forced to complete the first "tutorial" tour with Aya and it will count towards this trophy; unfortunately, this tour is in the Alexandria category and won't count for Archeologist .

Curse of the Pharoahs DLC:

  • Estimated trophy difficulty: 3/10 (personal estimate)
  • Offline trophies: 6 (3, 2, 1)
  • Online trophies: N/A
  • Approximate amount of time to 100%: 20-30 hours (possibly less depending on level)
  • Minimum number of playthroughs: 1
  • Number of missable trophies: N/A
  • Glitched trophies: N/A
  • Does difficulty affect trophies?: No
  • Do trophies stack?: N/A
  • Do cheat codes disable trophies?: N/A
  • Additional peripherals required?: No






Curse of the Pharoahs, the third major expansion for Assasin’s Creed: Origins, takes Bayek to find a mysterious artifact in Thebes, where he immediately runs into much more than he bargained for. Instead of the mortal and deceitful Order of the Ancients, he finds undead pharaohs materializing in the streets and slaughtering civilians. The Pharaoh’s Curse, as the locals call it, likely has something to do with all the grave robbers treating the Valley of the Kings like a strip mine for antiquities, forcing Bayek to hunt down key artifacts linked to each pharaoh in order to put them to rest.

This DLC is is pretty straightforward when it comes to trophies and shouldn’t pose any challenge whatsoever for anyone who has played the main game. However, it does require you to reach level 55, which increases the amount of time needed to play to achieve the 100%.




Step 1: Complete the Story Mode

During this step, you should simply focus on playing through the story mode, as none of the side quests are required for the 100%.

As you progress through the game, however, it would be best to do a few side quests to reach level 55 as soon as possible, as it makes the boss fights much easier, and helps get to the 100% sooner. Also, it would be best to upgrade your gear, so collect as much Shards of a Star as possible.

At the end of this step, you will definitely have this trophy:

Lift the Curse

Step 2: Level up to 55 & upgrade gear


If you have not already done so in Step 1, this is the step where you level up to 55 by doing as many side quests as necessary and upgrade at least one of your gear by collecting Shards of a Star.

At the end of this step, you will have these trophies:

Higher Power
Project Comet


Step 3: Cleanup and Miscellaneous Trophies

During this step, you should complete any locations regarding Serqet and complete the required tasks for the other miscellaneous trophies.

At the end of this step, you will have these trophies:

Sting in the Tale
Dark Horse
Pyromaniac

68 trophies ( 21  44  24  )

  • Earn every trophy.

    Earn every other trophy in the game to obtain this trophy, congratulations!

  • Be equipped with only Legendary equipment.

    In this game you have 3 tiers for your equipment: common (blue), rare (purple) and legendary (yellow/gold), the latter of which is the most powerful. To obtain this trophy you will need to have a legendary item in all equipment slots. The upgradable tools don’t count for this, so what you’ll need is 2 legendary bows, 2 legendary melee weapons, a legendary shield, a legendary mount and a legendary outfit.

    There are multiple ways to get legendary gear in the game. Some items will be handed to you for completing (side) quests and you’ll get some guaranteed legendary items late in the game for defeating the Phylakes enemies. There is a chance of obtaining legendary items from completing the daily quests you get from Reda at the Nomad’s Bazaar (a special vendor who you’ll meet after the prologue) or from the Heka chests he sells you. Other than that you have a chance of obtaining a legendary item from solving Papyrus puzzles. Lastly, you can use skill points to buy an upgrade to the world vendors so that they start selling legendary items and there is a special vendor at the Assassin's Hideout in Memphis after you complete the game who sells legendary gear. Their stock will still be random though.

    Some people are reporting having difficulty getting a legendary gear set or mount. The easiest (and probably first) legendary gear set you can obtain is the Sekhmet Outfit. This outfit is rewarded for finishing the Lady of Slaughter side mission. See The Festival trophy for more information on this mission. For a list of all legendary mounts in the game and how to obtain them please refer below, information courtesy of TassieTiger. Note that the purchasable legendary mounts only become available after you upgrade the vendors with the 'Backstore' or the 'Chariot Owner' skills and the stock of vendors is random.

    Legendary Mounts

    Aa Nekhtou (Horse) - Can randomly be purchased from Stable stores with the Backstore upgrade
    Meri Heka (Camel) - Can randomly be purchased from Stable stores with the Backstore upgrade
    Meri Amun (Horse) - Can randomly be purchased from Stable stores with the Backstore upgrade
    Pataikos Hert (Camel) - Can randomly be purchased from Stable stores with the Backstore upgrade
    Royal Chariot (War Chariot) - Can randomly be purchased from Stable stores with the Chariot Owner upgrade
    Sand Dweller (Camel) - The Sand Dweller Mount can be unlocked through the UPlay store for 500 Helix Credits.
    Unicorn - The Unicorn Mount can be unlocked through the UPlay store for 500 Helix Credits.
    Abyssal Steed - Part of the Nightmare DLC Pack, can also be unlocked through the UPlay store for 500 Helix Credits.
    Midnight Sun - Part of the First Civilization DLC Pack, can also be unlocked through the UPlay store for 500 Helix Credits.
    Fangs (Horse) - The Fangs mount can be unlocked as part of the pre-order digital deluxe bonus.
    Pharaoh's Horse - Reward for winning all of the basic tournaments in the Hippodrome
    Roman Warhorse - Reward for winning all elite tournaments in the Hippodrome.

  • Activate a Master ability.

    By levelling up or doing side activities in the game you can obtain skill points that you can use to buy certain abilities in a skill tree. The skill tree consists of three major directions, being hunter (skills mainly focused on your bows), master (skills mainly focused on melee combat and seer (skills mainly focused on tools). The master abilities are the last ability in each tree so you’ll have to work your way towards the last ability in one of the three trees and buy it to obtain this trophy.

    You can obtain skill points by levelling up and completing tomb locations. For more information on these locations please refer to the Raider of the Last Tomb trophy.

  • Witness raining bugs in the desert.

    If you’re traversing through the desserts on foot for a while you’ll start hallucinating. There’s a total of 8 different hallucinations, but to obtain this trophy you need to witness the one where it’s ‘raining’ scarabs. Note that there is another hallucination where it rains locusts, but that one won’t unlock this trophy. This basically comes down to luck, and chances are you will unlock this without trying. If you don’t, just keep wandering through the desserts and you should eventually get this.

    For a visual aid on this trophy please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Complete all arena events in the Krokodilopolis Arena.

    About halfway through the story you will come to a city called Krokodilopolis (which literally means City of Crocodiles) and as part of the story you will have to fight in an arena alongside an old friend. After you’ve completed this storyline, the arena will be open in free roam and you can enter tournaments yourself. There’s a total of 8 tournaments you need to beat. This sounds long, but a tournament consists of just 3 waves of enemies or a single boss fight.

  • Finish an arena boss with an Overpower Attack.

    The first arena you’ll come across in the game is in Krokodilopolis during “The Crocodile’s Jaws” main mission, but there’s another one to be found in Cyrene later in the game. This trophy can be obtained during the story, but if you didn’t get it you can still get it in free roam afterwards by selecting a boss fight tournament in one of the arenas.

    During the fight fill your adrenaline bar in the bottom of your screen by performing melee attacks. Once it’s full wear the boss down until he has just a little bit of health left and use your overpower attack to finish him. You trigger your overpower attack by pressing and simultaneously.

    Although this trophy isn’t hard, you can make things even easier on yourself by buying the abilities that give you half or even a full adrenaline bar at the start of each fight. These skills can be bought in the master skill tree.

  • Win the first Hippodrome tournament.

    The hippodrome can be found just east of Alexandria and will be open after completing the main mission “Egypt’s Medjay”. Upon entering you can choose to play a tutorial (which is recommended, but won’t count for this trophy). Pick the first tournament called “Nike’s Winged Victory” and win this to obtain the trophy.

    A tournament consists of three races. After each race you get points and the player with the most points after three races wins the tournament. You get 5 points for a win, 3 for second, 2 for third and 1 for fourth. Usually it’s enough to win 2 races to win the title so don’t give up if your result in one of the races isn’t the best.

    Some people are having difficulty winning races, but if you drift through the corners to go tight around the wall and accelerate right when you come out of it you should be fine, especially in the first tournament which is by far the easiest.

  • Destroy an opponent in a Hippodrome race.

    The hippodrome can be found just east of Alexandria and will be open after completing the main mission “Egypt’s Medjay”. This trophy can’t be obtained in the tutorial so pick the first tournament called “Nike’s Winged Victory” and destroy an opponent to obtain the trophy.

    To destroy an opponent you need to ram into them during the race by pressing . The more pace you have yourself the more damage you’ll inflict. For the purpose of this trophy it’s best to not focus on winning but instead just pick a backmarker and keep ramming into him until he gets destroyed.

  • Defeat the war elephants Qetesh & Resheph.

    The war elephants you need to defeat for this trophy are found in the South of the “UAB Nome” region and are level 40 (maximum level) so it’s advised to only go for this trophy when you’re (close to) maximum level yourself.

    To beat the elephants, aim at the legs with your bow to do the most damage. If you play on the easiest difficulty setting you can also simply go in close and melee the legs of the elephants. If they rush you or when the archer on the back of the elephant tries to hit you you can evade with . Keep hitting the elephants on their legs to deplete their health bar and defeat them.

    For visual aid on this trophy please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Kill 3 enemies with one hit.

    You will likely obtain this trophy without trying, but if you want to get it out of the way, find a group of hyenas below your current level and mount your horse or camel. Use a sword or other melee weapon and ride towards the group. When you approach them, swing your sword and make a circular motion with the horse to increase your swing area. A great spot for this is the Northeastern part of Siwa where you start the game.

    For visual aid on this trophy please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Kill an enemy with the predator bow from more than 60 meters while controlling the arrow.

    The predator bow is a bow with only a limited number of arrows, but which inflicts a great deal of damage. To control an arrow you will have to buy a skill from the skill tree first called “Enhanced Predator Bow”. This skill will let you control the arrow as long as you’re holding down .

    To obtain this trophy find a stationary guard below your level and use Senu (your eagle) to mark him. Make sure your marked enemy is further than 60 meters, shoot and hold down and control the trajectory of the arrow to kill the enemy.

    For visual aid on this trophy please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Complete all hermit locations.

    Hermit locations are 5 resting places which can be found throughout the open world and can be identified by the Pharao head icon once you get close enough (they will first show as a regular question mark). These locations are part of the Old Habit trophy as well, so if you’re going for the platinum this trophy is unmissable.

    For visual aid on where to find all of these locations please refer to the video below, courtesy of PS4Trophies:

  • Feed a predator with a corpse.

    This is an easy but finicky trophy. Kill a guard and carry him towards a predator, crocodiles work best. Now get discovered by the crocodile and lead him to the corpse. Keep running away until the crocodile doesn’t follow you anymore. Now if you’re lucky the crocodile will start feeding on the corpse on his way back. Some people have reported that the trophy didn’t pop for them if they left the corpse in (shallow) water, so it’s advised to leave it on a stroke of land. This took me a few tries, so don’t fret if the trophy doesn’t pop on your first try.

  • Kill 10 enemies in a row without being detected.

    Self explanatory. This doesn’t necessarily have to be in one place, but you’ll find more than enough forts or other settlements that house enough enemies. It doesn’t matter whether you kill the enemies with a stealth attack or by other means, so feel free to kill enemies from afar with arrows or use tools. The way I found easiest was to sneak into a fort undetected and poison an enemy. Once he gets near another enemy or when another enemy comes to inspect the dead body, they get poisoned as well, so if you’re lucky enough you can get (close to) your 10 kills just sitting idle in a safe spot.

  • Defog the whole map.

    When you start the game your map will be covered with black fog. Upon entering a new region you will defog that specific region, so to obtain this trophy you simply have to visit each region.

    If you want to obtain this trophy early in the game you can use Senu (your eagle) to fly across the whole map and discover every region. Note that you must be on land (not a boat) and in a safe spot or else the camera will automatically return to Bayek.

  • Complete a tomb.

    Tombs are locations in the game that you can identify on your map by a mummy icon once you get close enough. Once you enter the goal is to find a relic stone and to get there you’ll have to solve light puzzles that shouldn’t prove very difficult. There’s a total of 19 tombs in the game but for this trophy you’ll only need to complete one.

    Tomb locations are part of the Old Habit trophy, so if you’re going for the platinum this trophy is unmissable.

  • Reach the "Top of the World" in the Black Desert territory.

    To obtain this trophy you’ll have to climb the highest mountain in the game which can be found in the Black Dessert region. This region has high level enemies so it’s wise visit this late in the game. Find the highest mountain on the map, which is in the Southeastern part of the region, and get to the top.

    This location is part of the Old Habit trophy, so if you’re going for the platinum this trophy is unmissable.

    For visual aid on where to find this location please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Bring a tamed lion to a crocodile.

    To be able to tame an animal you will need to buy two different skills first, the “Sleep Darts” and the “Animal Taming” skills. Once you have these skills, find a lion that’s on or below your own power level and put him to sleep with a sleep dart, then tame it with . Once you’ve done that, the lion will follow you around. Find a crocodile and have your lion 'meet' with it to obtain this trophy.

    Both lions and crocodiles can be found all across the map, but a spot where I could consistently find them close together was the Herakleion Nome in the the Northeastern part of the map.

    For visual aid on this trophy please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Take 1 photo in 5 different territories.

    To go to photo mode, press and simultaneously. Once in photo mode, press to take a picture. Now simply do this in 5 different regions and the trophy should pop.

  • Kill a poisoned level 35+ enemy with the torch in less than 30 seconds.

    Since you have to kill an enemy which is at least level 35, it’s recommended that you are at the same level or above to make things easier for yourself. Once you’ve found an enemy that’s level 35 or over, poison him by any means whether it be a poison dart, a poison arrow or a poison melee weapon/shield. Once your enemy is poisoned, quickly switch to your torch by holding down and kill the enemy with it. The time limit of 30 seconds is very generous and you shouldn't have a problem doing this even in a matter of a few seconds.

    For visual aid on this trophy please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Headshot kill an enemy with the bow while in the air.

    This trophy sounds much more complicated than it actually is, because there is a skill you can buy in the hunter tree of your skill tree that will make this trophy quite manageable. The skill is called “Elite Ranger” and the effect is that it slows down time if you aim your bow while in mid-air. Now find a lower levelled enemy and jump off an elevated spot, aim while in the air and get a headshot kill.

    For visual aid on this trophy please refer to THIS video, courtesy of PS4Trophies.

  • Kill 30 enemies by shooting a fire arrow at oil jars.

    One of the trickier trophies in the game and one you probably have to go out of your way for. The trophy is obtained by shooting fire arrows at the red jars containing oil, which then have to set enemies ablaze.

    You can create a fire arrow by holding a regular arrow in a fire or alternatively there’s a legendary bow called “Smoke and Mirrors” that you will get from killing one of the Phylakes which shoots fire arrows automatically. This is easier said than done if you’re trying to get this naturally, because the enemies have to be really close to the jars and often won’t get killed by the fire anyway. There are quite a lot of locations in the game where you can pull this off, but unless you’re actively going for this at every opportunity, you’re better off using the following method.

    The easy way to obtain this trophy is by going to the Dasos Hideout in the Ka-Khem Nome region. Make sure you have the “Dawn and Dusk” and “Pyromaniac” skills to make this easier. Use “Dawn and Dusk” to time travel to night time and then approach the camp stealthily. There are 2 guards wandering around, one of which will go sleep in a tent with some fellow guards soon as you arrive. You will need to take out the only remaining guard silently and then collect 2 or 3 oil jars from the scaffolding and place them in the tent where the 4 guards are sleeping. Now use a fire arrow to shoot the jars and get 4 easy kills. Immediately cause another fire and stand in it to kill yourself. There’s enough oil jars to cause another fire in the centre of the camp and as soon as you respawn, rinse and repeat and keep repeating this method until you get the trophy.

  • Use all types of vehicle at least once.

    There aren’t many types of vehicles in the game that you get to use yourself, so this trophy can be earned relatively early on in the game. The ones you need to use that count for this trophy are the following:

    • Sailboat
    • Rowboat
    • Chariot
    • Oxcart / Horse Cart

    The rowboat can be distinguished from the sailboat as it doesn't have a sail and is made of wicker instead of wood. Although there are other means of transport and even naval ships, those aren’t needed for this trophy.

  • Complete all locations.

    This is the trophy you will have to dedicate most of your time towards and will most likely be your last. Locations are marked on your map with a question mark which will be unveiled by getting close enough or by syncing viewpoints. When you get close enough to a question mark it will turn into an activity symbol. Each location/activity will require you to do something, e.g. clearing an enemy settlement, meditating, solving a murder mystery or raiding a tomb. Once you’ve cleared the location activity the symbol will still be showing on your map, but it will be grayed out indicating that it's done.

    There are many different locations and the game world is huge so it will take a lot of time to complete them all. Some of them are also hard to locate since the question marks are white, which makes them hard to spot on the mostly yellowish background. Although not required for a trophy it’s advised to sync all the viewpoints to unveil most of the question marks. There are a few locations however that won’t be unveiled by any of the viewpoints, these are the most commonly missed ones:

    • Abandoned Fishing Village (treasure), at Faiyum
    • Dionysias Wharf (enemy camp), at Faiyum
    • Hotep Cavern (treasure), at Qattara Depression

    Another noteworthy location is the one that appears just left of the Sphinx. Don't stress if you can't find the actual location yet, because you will only be able to complete this after you've completed all 12 star locations. Please refer to the Stargazer trophy for more information on these star locations. After completing all of these, find a hidden entrance to the back left of the Sphinx to complete this location.

    Lastly, it should be noted that there's a location called "Bureau of the Hidden Ones" which will only become available in the city of Memphis after finishing the story.

    Tip: If you’re having difficulty with spotting the question marks cause they blend in with the background, try upping the contrast rate in the ingame settings menu. This will make the outline of the question marks a lot clearer. Additionally a filter option was added in one of the later patches to the game. Press to select the icons you want to show on the map and select the one that shows all uncompleted locations to make your life a bit easier.

    Glitch Note: If you’re playing on an unpatched version of the game, this trophy will glitch and become unobtainable if you complete any of the locations while playing as Aya.

  • Sell 100 trinkets at once.

    Although not hard, this is a trophy that you need to be mindful of from the beginning of the game. Trinkets are found mostly by looting places and sometimes enemies. If you make sure you loot everything you run into you’ll have no problems gathering 100 trinkets over the course of the game, but be careful not to sell any of them at one of the vendors cause if you do there might not be enough places to loot to get you up to a 100 again and you’ll have to rely on looting enemies which very rarely give trinkets.

    You can check the amount of trinkets you’ve gathered in the inventory screen. Note that animal trophies do not count towards this trophy.

    Tip: Make a backup save in the PS Plus cloud or on a USB Stick before selling your 100+ trinkets, just in case.

  • Reach level 20.

    You level up by gaining experience which is obtained by killing enemies, completing (side) missions and locations or discovering new areas. This trophy will come naturally while playing the game and is effectively unmissable as level 20 is only halfway to the maximum level and easily reached by completing the story missions alone.

  • Complete all 12 Stone Circles.

    Stone circles are locations that can be found throughout the open world and can be identified by the large stone icons once you get close enough (they will first show as a regular question mark). Once at the location press to interact with the stone circle and then match the stars with the correct star constellation in the sky.

    These locations are part of the Old Habit trophy, so if you’re going for the platinum this trophy is unmissable.

    For visual aid on where to find all of these locations please refer to the video below, courtesy of PS4Trophies:

  • Complete 15 underwater locations.

    Underwater locations are the question marks on the water where you need to dive to loot treasure. Simply complete 15 of these to obtain this trophy.

    These locations are part of the Old Habit trophy, so if you’re going for the platinum this trophy is unmissable.

  • Defeat a Phylakes.

    After you reach Alexandria in the story and have to kill a an important military target as part of a mission, you will from thereon be hunted at by a number of strong enemies called Phylakes. These Phylakes will come for you if you get spotted in their vicinity and have much more health and skills than regular enemies. The Phylakes locations however are conveniently indicated on your map with a red helmet icon so instead of letting them hunt you down, you can turn the game around and hunt them instead as soon as you are at the appropriate power level. It will help tremendously to get the jump on them by taking them by surprise or luring them into an ambush. Defeating them early will also help you throughout the rest of the game as the Phylakes drop very powerful gear, most of them legendary tier.

  • Craft 20 items.

    In your items screen you’ll have a few items that can be upgraded with materials, such as your armor, your hidden blade and your quiver. The more you upgrade them, the more materials you’ll need to get the next upgrade. To obtain this trophy, simply upgrade these items 20 times. This carries over between items so you won’t have to worry about upgrading one particular item first.

  • Tame a lion.

    To be able to tame an animal you will need to buy two different skills first, being the “Sleep Darts” and the “Animal Taming” skills. Once you have these, find a lion that’s on or below your own power level and put him to sleep with a sleep dart, then tame it with to obtain this easy trophy.

    For visual aid on this trophy please refer to the video in Set Up Date.

    • Birth of the Creed
  • Complete Side Quest "Seven Farmers".

    The “Seven Farmers” side quest can be found in the UAB Nome region in a small town and is a level 30 mission. The mission itself requires you to save the town from bandits and is quite lengthy. It’s not difficult, however, and you’ll only need to complete this to obtain this trophy.

  • Complete Side Quest "Lady of Slaughter".

    This side mission is found in the Lake Mareotis region and will be available to you not long after the prologue. To gain access to this side mission you’ll first have to complete two other side missions called “Ambush in the Temple" and “Ulterior Votive”, after which the “Lady of Slaughter” mission will be automatically tracked. Simply complete this mission to obtain the trophy.

  • Destroy 100 breakable objects.

    You’ll find lots of breakable objects in the game world, especially in towns and tombs. However, since there’s no real incentive to break any objects, you might have to go out of your way for this trophy a bit. Luckily 100 items is not a lot so just remind yourself to break objects every once in a while and you should get this trophy long before you’re done with everything else in this game.

  • Defeat 8 Ship Captains.

    Some of the locations in this game are ships that have captains on them that need to be killed to complete the objective. To obtain this trophy you need to complete 8 of these. Note that the ships where the objective is to just loot treasure only carry regular enemies so these won’t count towards this trophy.

    These locations are part of the Old Habit trophy, so if you’re going for the platinum this trophy is unmissable.

    For visual aid on where to find these locations please refer to the video below, courtesy of PS4Trophies:

     

  • Use the eagle for a total of 30 minutes.

    This trophy is cumulative and virtually unmissable because you will have to use your eagle a lot to find objectives and to mark enemies and treasure. Bring her (yes, Senu’s female) out by pressing and fly using the .

  • Swim for 1500m, ride for 40km and run for 10km.

    Another virtually unmissable trophy. You will without a doubt run 10km and swim 1500m during your objectives. If you use fast travel a lot you might miss out on riding for 40km, but even then you should get fairly close. Unfortunately there’s no way to track how much distance you’ve covered so you’re just going to have to keep travelling until the trophy pops.

  • Run away from 3 fights with a hippo.

    Hippos are found everywhere on the map where there’s water. If you are having difficulties locating one, you can use Senu (your eagle). As soon as you found a hippo let it spot and run after you. Run away until you’re safe, which is indicated by a chime and you can see the hippo return to its original spot. Although unconfirmed, I couldn’t get this trophy to pop by running away from the same hippo three times in a row, so you will want to try this with different hippos each time.

  • Solve a papyrus mystery.

    There are papyri scattered throughout the game world for you to find. Each papyrus contains a riddle that you can solve for treasure. Although it’s recommended to go for all of these treasures since the loot is very good, you’ll only need to solve a single one to obtain this trophy. The papyrus locations are part of the Old Habit trophy as well, however solving them is not needed for that particular trophy.

    For visual aid on how to obtain this trophy please refer to the video below, courtesy of PS4Trophies:

  • Use Dawn & Dusk to make time speed forward 30 times.

    Dawn and Dusk is a skill which can be bought from the skill tree for one ability point. Once you have obtained the skill, you can go forward in time to switch between day and night by holding the . Do this 30 times to obtain this trophy.

DLC: The Hidden Ones

8 trophies

  • Perform a leap of faith from Arsinoe's sundial obelisk between 10 am and noon (The Hidden Ones)

    Arsinoe is the city located in the north of Sinai. This is the same location where you will be sent in order to assassinate Phtamos. The sundial obelisk is located in the northern part of Asinoe.

    Keep in mind that the sun might be behind a mountain range (to the east), so you might not see shadows right away. Whilst on the Obelisk and looking to the west, you should be able to see (moving) shadows.

    See the images below for the location of the obelisk and where you want the shadow to be (the middle line that is pointing north represents 12pm/noon) before performing the leap of faith.



  • Perform 3 Assassinations from a zipline (The Hidden Ones)

    Self-explanatory. A good place for this is Operum Tuorum Gemmam Castra, which is the location you're sent to when you are tasked with the assassination of Tacito. Once you are on a zipline, simply keep mashing whilst looking for targets below.

    Alternative tip by thedarkness91: To the south of Arsinoe's (main) fast travel point, there is a small pyramid-like construction tower with a zipline and about 5 guards:
    - There's a guard that walks around who is easy to get to using the zipline.
    - Afterwards you can draw attention to yourself, climb up the tower and "zipline-kill" any enemies below (who are trying to find you).

  • Free 20 Rebels (The Hidden Ones

    Whenever you are in an outpost, keep an eye out for captives: they will be marked as blue diamonds (you don't have to be scouting as Senu for this to happen). Keep in mind that civilians do NOT count (it HAS to be rebels). A good rule of thumb is that if you see the "Assisted Rebels" text pop up, it has counted for this trophy.

    Tip from CountKarloff: Near the Bureau of the Hidden Ones in the starting area of Klysma Nome, there's an outpost called Operum Tuorum Gemmam Castra (where you're sent to for the assassination of Tacito). This area has 6-7* captured rebels waiting to be freed. Reset the outpost via the Dusk & Dawn skill or by fast traveling away.

    *You can find 4 on the boat in the center of the location and 2-3 towards the south (on higher ground). If you're having difficulty getting the captives to (re)spawn, make sure you have "Enemy Auto Level" turned OFF (found under Menu > Options > Gamplay). Credit to RisinDragon.

    Tip from thedarkness91: If you feel like you've done a lot more than 20 and the trophy is not popping, try rebooting the game and freeing another rebel.

  • Kill an enemy with a headshot while they are being harassed by Senu (The Hidden Ones)

    Self-explanatory. Whilst Senu is harassing an enemy (indicated by a white eagle-head icon above the enemy), kill the foe via headshot. You will need the ability "Eagle Harass" to attempt this.

    Whilst controlling Senu, you can initiate an attack/harassment manually and you can use the (slow-motion) guiding effect of a Predator Bow for an easier headshot.

  • Complete the Walls-of-the-Ruler citadel (The Hidden Ones)

    The Walls-of-the-Ruler citadel is an enemy outpost which you will also be sent to (as part of the story) to assassinate Ampelius but keep in mind that killing Ampelius is not actually part of the locations requirements. Complete the location activities* and the trophy will pop.

    *Whilst at the location, hold L3 to show the requirements and your current progress.

 

Secret trophies

  • Assasinate Tacito, Ptahmose and Ampelius (The Hidden Ones)

    GLITCHED
    There have been a few reports of this trophy glitching and sadly is without a known fixe other than replaying the story up to the point you can retry the required missions. Luckily that will only take an hour or two:
    - Start a "New Game +" playthrough on Easy.
    - Turn off "enemy auto level" (scaling of enemy difficulty).
    - Play until you are allowed to leave Siwa.

    Story related and cannot be missed (but it can glitch).

    For each target, there are also specific miscellaneous trophy you should focus on:

    • Tacito: Zip if Off
    • Ampelius: Walls of the Ruler
    • Phtamos: What Time is It

    Keep in mind that after killing a target, you have to confirm the kill (which will initiate a cutscene). After the third kill has been confirmed, the trophy will pop at the end of the cutscene.

  • Complete Side DLC Quests "Rise of Shaqilat" and "Shadows of the Scarab" (The Hidden Ones)

    GLITCHED
    There have been a few reports of this trophy glitching and sadly is without a known fixe other than replaying the story up to the point you can retry the required missions. Luckily that will only take an hour or two:
    - Start a "New Game +" playthrough on Easy.
    - Turn off "enemy auto level" (scaling of enemy difficulty).
    - Play until you are allowed to leave Siwa.

    West of the Bureau of the Hidden Ones (in the starting area Klysma Nome), you can pick up "Shadows of the Scarab". The sidequest "Rise of the Shaqilat" is started inside the Bureau which moves to a location northwest of Arsinoe after a certain story mission (after the 3 assassinations), but the sidequest will still be available (credit to IronDust71 for confirming).

    Tip from RisinDragon: If you have trouble spawning the second Shadow of the Scarab (Sinai's version of a Phylake) try fast traveling to the mainland ( on the map) and then back to Sinai.

  • Complete Main DLC Quest "The Greater Good" (The Hidden Ones)

    Story related and cannot be missed.

    This will pop upon completing the final story mission "The Greater Good".

DLC: Discovery Tour: Ancient Egypt

3 trophies

  • Complete one tour

    Cannot be missed.

    The first time you access the Discovery Tour mode in the main menu, you will automatically start the Alexandria: Planning of the City tour. This tour works as a tutorial and once you've completed it, the trophy will pop.

  • Complete all tours in the Daily Life category

    There are 75 tours, but you only need to complete the 20 tours in the Daily Life category. Every completed tour will have a gold checkmark on it so you don't have to remember which one of them you've already done. You can access tours while free roaming, in the map menu or in the Tour tab while you pause the game with or . You can fast travel to any tour with and will only need to follow the checkpoints and listen to your guide.

    You can call a horse to move faster and you can also skip everything by pressing and moving forward to the next checkpoint if you're not interested.

    Completing all 20 tours will take you ~30 minutes if you skip, or 2 hours if you actually listen/read the information and enjoy the beauty of ancient Egypt.

  • Complete tours with at least 5 different characters

    You can switch characters while pausing the game with or and going to the Characters tab. There are 25 different characters to choose and you will need to complete at least 1 tour with 5 of them to unlock this trophy.

    Note that you're forced to play with Aya for the first "tutorial" tour and this will count towards this trophy, you will only need to pick 4 other different characters.

DLC: The Curse of the Pharaohs

6 trophies

  • Reach level 55 (The Curse of the Pharaohs)

    If you have had all DLCs installed while playing the main game, chances are you should be around level 50 by the time you start this DLC, so reaching level 55 will be easy. Otherwise, you should be at least level 45 starting this DLC.

    You should be able to reach level 55 by the end of the main story. If for some reason you did not reach level 55, simply complete as many side missions and/or kill as many enemies as is necessary.

    As soon as you reach level 55, the trophy will pop.

  • Acquire Eternal Maw for use outside the Afterlifes (The Curse of the Pharaohs)

    Eternal Maw is the horse that replaces your standard ride when you enter an Afterlife. After completing the main story, you will be able to purchase Eternal Maw at the stables in Set Ma’at; it costs 5,000 gold. Once you purchase Eternal Maw, the trophy will pop.


  • Complete the 5 Serqet locations (The Curse of the Pharaohs)

    There are 5 Serqet locations scattered across Thebes and the four Afterlifes and you must complete the requirements for each. The main target will be level 58, which means you should be at least level 55. A great way to defeat the high-leveled targets is to use high-level legendary predator bows and light bows and keep a distance.

    Maps are provided below:

    Waset Desert - Spring of Serqet - Kill Captain (1) & Loot Treasure (1)



    Aaru (located inside the Tomb of Nefertiti) - Serqet’s Altar - Kill Animal (1)



    Aten (located inside the Tomb of Akhenaten) - Serqet’s Garden - Kill Animal (1)



    Heb Sed (located inside the Tomb of Ramesses) - Serqet’s Chamber - Kill Animal (1)



    Duat (located inside the Tomb of Tutankhamun) - Halls of Serqet - Kill Animal (1)



    After you complete the objective at the fifth and final Serqet location, the trophy will pop.

  • Craft an upgrade using Shards of a Star (The Curse of the Pharaohs)

    Shards of a Star are the new legendary resource that can be used to upgrade your gear. If you have played the main game and have fully upgraded your gear with Carbon Crystals and have not sold all of your other resources, then this should be an extremely easy trophy.

    Shards of a Star can be obtained from Pharaoh Shadows, Scorpions, or certain locations in the Afterlifes (in a chest or just lying around). If you don’t feel like grinding it out with Scorpions or if the Shadows prove too difficult at first, you can go progress further in the main story to gain access to your first Afterlife: Aaru. In Aaru, there is a crater in the northeast called “Nut’s Gift,” which contains a bunch of the Shards scattered around along with a chest that contains 20 of them. Since you need 20 to do one of the first upgrades, this is a perfect place to upgrade one of your gear and, subsequently, pop the trophy.
     

  • Kill a Mummy by setting it on fire (The Curse of the Pharaohs)

    Mummies are one of the few enemies you will see in the Afterlifes, usually accompanying the Servants of Anubis. They act in a similar fashion to the brutes of the real world and usually carry heavy weapons. The easiest way to do this is to find one alone (or kill every other Anubis soldier around) and then spam your fire bomb on him until he dies. Once he is killed, the trophy will pop.

 

Secret trophies

  • Defeat Tutankhamun in the Afterlife (The Curse of the Pharaohs)

    Story-related and cannot be missed.

    The trophy will pop once you defeat Tutankhamun in the Duat near the end of the mission “The Curse of the Pharaohs pt. 3.”

    For tips on how defeat him:

    Keep your distance. It’s your best move when he is swinging. Use your overdrive power with sword to deal a swift blow that will deal a great amount of damage. Once you use it, dodge backwards to stay out of his range. Use your ranged weapons to deal some more damage and gain your overdrive ability back. Repeat the process. Also, fire bombs are a great supplement to dealing damage.
