Step 1: Complete the Main Cases & Photo Trophies (Including PP Stickers)
The First thing you want to do is start a new game and only really focus on the main case files. Be careful to always arrive on time to each main case file, if you're too late the game will fail and the truth will be lost and you'll therefore miss out on trophies during that playthrough, so make sure you always check your watch so you know when main cases start etc. The full 72hrs takes 6 real game hours to count down and then after that there's an additional 24hrs, so you're looking at about 8hrs to complete this step. For the time between the main cases make sure to go for as many photo trophies and misc trophies as you can. They're pretty easy and you don't have to hugely go out your way to get them. Also you will want to take a photo of 75 different PP stickers in fortune city, the stickers are tiny little photos and they're pretty well hidden. See the guide for some videos of all the PP stickers.
At the end of this step you will have all trophies tied to the main case files including the final boss fight in overtime. You should also have all (if not most) photo trophies and a few (if not most) misc trophies, however it's best to save some of the misc trophies for your new game + playthrough.
Step 2: New Game +
Once you've beaten the game start a new game on the same file with new game +. On this step you will want to mainly focus on 'Alpha vs Omega' and the trophy for not eating or drinking any alcohol, dairy or meat. For more info refer to the guide.
Right, I'll tell you to follow this in the order I did it to get the trophies. Firstly, I went for cramped quarters. I managed to get it before starting Case 2-1. I firstly recruited Denyce and then went straight to Yucatan and killed Ted but left Snowflake. Then after that I got the couple in Royal Flush plaza. That made it 3. I then went and got bill from Americana Casino (Need to pay him $25,000 for him to follow you). After that I got the 2 in palisades mall (Kennethand his friend). This made it 6. I then went back to Yucatan after finishing the final part of case 1 and snowflake automatically joined me, after that I recruited the guy in the back room who's scared of Snowflake. This made it 8 (Including Snowflake). Now you want to get rid of Snowflake, bring all the survivors back to the entrance of the safehouse and tell them to wait by the maintenance room. Then enter the Safehouse. Snowflake will appear in the safehouse even if she's nowhere near the entrance to the safehouse. This brings your total down to 7 people. Shortly after this you'll get a message about a guy crying in the Palisades Mall art gallery. Go to him and buy the painting off him, now you have 8 people. Go to the silver strip and outside the church is the clown car (Only vehicle that can fit 8 people in). Get in it and press to honk the horn and get the survivors in the car. Once all 8 get in the trophy will pop shortly afterwards. For more info check out the trophy 'Cramped Quarters'.
You also want to get to lvl 47 to unlock all the skill moves for the trophy that requires it. For a PP exploit see that trophy.
Now you need to just do 'Alpha vs Omega' and the other misc trophies you may have missed. For more info see the trophy guide. At the end of this step you should have every single-player story trophy and anything that relates to it.
Step 3: Sandbox Mode Challenges (Singleplayer & co-op), Also kill 100,000 zombies
Now you move onto Sandbox mode. This is a new mode in DR2: OFT. It's basically just free roam, you don't have to do any cases files, you don't have a timer ticking down and you don't have a safehouse. The only thing you can do in sandbox mode is complete challenges and kill zombies.
The first thing you'll want to do is gold all 30 singleplayer challenges. Most of them are not very difficult if you use the 'Super BFG' (Combine Blast Frequency Gun & Amplifier). But for some you're stuck on, look up the specific challenge on YouTube. After getting all 30 golds in singleplayer you're basically done with the singleplayer sandbox mode (Only thing left to do is 100,000 zombie kills). At the end of this step you'll have the 4 singleplayer sandbox trophies.
Now you need to move onto the co-op challenges. They're not much different to the singleplayer ones, except this time you have a co-op partner. I again advise you to use the 'Super BFG' for most of them and the 'Bombstick' for the PP challenges. After this you should have all the trophies relating to co-op sandbox.
The last thing you need to do in sandbox now is killing 10,000 and 100,000 zombies. The best method to use is the slice cycle or the SUV, whichever you prefer. This is a really boring grind trophy and can take in advance of 8hrs just to reach 100,000. This should be the last trophy you need for platinum. For more info on the zombie killing trophies see the trophy guide. At the end of this step you should have your platinum, congrats! If not continue to step 4.
Step 4: Clean up
Missed a misc trophy in singleplayer? or gave up on getting a gold medal in sandbox mode? Well now's your chance to go back and clear up the remaining trophies you need. You really shouldn't have missed anything though.
