Defiance is a free to play massive multiplayer online third person shooter. The game has gone free to play (F2P) in 2014, and while still possible, you no longer have the buy the game on disc. There are multiple DLC's and a season pass, but these still cost money though. There are also micro-transactions and booster packs, but these are mainly for convenience purposes, such as EXP boosts.

The game can be played entirely solo if you wish to do so, except for PvP and Co-op of course. However, you will run into other players even if you want to play solo. If you want to play this game with your overseas buddies, you can’t. The servers are region locked to NA and EU.

Nothing is overly difficult in this game; it’s mainly very time consuming. Even though the platinum can take quite a while, if you're fast (and maybe willing to spend real money), you could obtain the platinum in almost a 3-4 weeks. However, there are daily and weekly contracts in this game that needs to be completed for reputation, which requires at least 5 weeks of continuous play. That's if you complete all the daily and weekly contracts within their limit in those 5 weeks. You probably spend somewhere from 10-30 minutes on daily contracts, and anywhere from 1-3 hours on weekly contracts.

Before we move on to the walkthrough: Arkfall Code Rewards.

These codes no longer work! It might be possible these codes or similar codes will return with new episodes of the Defiance TV Show.

Before we begin our journey, go to the Defiance Website and create an account. Go to your EGO Page and enter the codes from this thread. Once you start up your game the first time, it will show you a code. If you’ve missed this code, in-game, press , hold , go to Settings, and select Link Account.

Now login on your Trion account and go to the Console Link page to link your account by entering the code. In-game, press , hold and go to the Defiance store. Go to the bottom tab, the Claims Items tab. All the rewards you’ve earned by entering the codes can be claimed here. If they don’t appear, restart your game or wait a few hours/a day.

So why use these codes? Because these will help you out with some extra weapons, inventory and some EGO/Weapon ranks. These are required for certain trophies and while it’s not much, it does help out. Also, if you’re lucky, you might obtain a legendary weapon through one of the lockboxes. This is required for the trophy Wait For It….
 

 
Play the game..

There are no missable trophies, so just play the game however you want. The main focus is reaching EGO Rating 2500 for the EGOcentric Arkhunter trophy, and reaching max Reputation with some of the Factions for the Widely Regarded trophy. Most of the other trophies will come by normal play.

You probably want to finish the main missions first, to unlock all story related trophies, earn quite some EGO Rating and unlock much more. In the meantime, try to finish a few side mission and challenges. Participate in random events such as Arkfalls, play some co-op instances and PvP. By doing all this, and by doing almost anything, you’ll gain EXP, trophies and complete Pursuits. These are goals you can complete throughout the world. It’s required to complete at least 20 of them for a few trophies. While the majority will come by normal play, do keep an eye out. By finishing pursuits, you’ll be able to obtain quite some EGO Rating. For more details, see the Pursuit of Excellence trophy.

Once you reach EGO Rating 175, you’ll unlock Contracts. Contracts are daily and weekly goals you can complete for Faction Reputation, and you’ll need to complete quite a few of these for a few trophies. These can take quite a while, especially since they’re timed and don’t give you a lot of reputation. For more info, see the Widely Regarded trophy.

Other times you will be in a completely different server and it's a total loss of time and work.

7th Legion DLC:

The servers have now closed, therefore no trophies are obtainable any more.

Roadmap:

Overview:
  • Estimated trophy difficulty: 3/10 (Personal opinion)
  • Offline trophies: 0
  • Online trophies: 3 (2 , 1 )
  • Approximate amount of time to 100%: 25 days
  • Minimum number of playthroughs: 25 Daily contracts
  • Number of missable trophies: 0
  • Glitched trophies: 0
  • Does difficulty affect trophies?: No
  • Do trophies stack?: N/A
  • Do cheat codes disable trophies?: No Cheats

Introduction

7th legion is the 3rd DLC for Defiance, you are joining forces with Yoshida Hiro to take down the new activity called Incursions. This new DLC comes with new weapons , shields, and new outfits for your character. There's really no story that goes with this DLC which disappointed a lot of the fan base.

Walkthrough

The easiest way about getting all these trophies is to just focus on incursions. You can either do one a day to get to 25 and get both trophies or you can do them quickly. For those without the Platinum and still going for EGO 2500, the incursions give you a load of XP to help you level up faster. There's really not too much into this DLC and it's pretty simple to acquire the trophies. When you do the incursions, try to get a score of at least 27,000 to have a good chance of receiving a legendary item as a reward.

Sometimes he will go into a berserk mode. You’ll see these red veins appear on his right shoulder. Aim at those to deal critical damage. Be careful though, he will keep rushing towards one of you. Just keep your distance and when you see him coming at you, roll away. When he starts to rush, he can also break the pipes in the area, which causes flames to burst out of all the pipes surrounding you. Be careful as this will do some heavy damage and deal damage over time. Roll to quickly get rid of the flames if needed.

    • Boss 2: Dekuso
      In the room with Dekuso are two places on the walls with turrets. Dekuso will go and float at one of them. Once he does, the turrets become activate. Hide behind the pillars and aim for the yellow Energy Catalyst to destroy the turrets. Don’t bother shooting Dekuso, he’s invincible. Once all turrets are down, he will teleport to the middle of the room and that’s when he becomes vulnerable. Just keep shooting at him. Be careful though, he can teleport, and when he does, he usually teleports behind or close to one of you. He has a few attacks. Such as a laser which you’ll see him charging. Quickly hide behind the pillars if he aims at you. Stay to long in the laser and you’re dead. He can shoot energy balls which do quite some damage. He also has one attack that does barely any damage, but can’t be dodged. He will teleport to the roof in the middle of the room, charge up a laster and shoot it towards the ground which will stun all of you, deactivating your HUD and crosshair. You can still shoot him though. He will go back to the turrets 3 times, after which he will stay on the ground until he’s dead.

    • Enemies: Hellbugs (/ 99ers)
      Be careful with Hellbug Blast Pods. These will spawn in the bushes or on top of hills. These will blast explosives in the air straight at you. Not only does it do quite some damage, it will also slow you down and decrease your damage. Roll to get rid of it.
    • Boss 1: Hellbug Monarch
      The Monarch is one of the strongest Hellbug in the game. Her weak spots are behind and under her. The weak spot on her back will open and close, so just keep firing at it. The weak spot under her can only be hit when she stands up on her hind legs. When she does this, quickly move out of the way, because once she hits the ground, she will cause 4 explosions in front of her, moving in a straight line. When she jumps in the air, once she hits the ground she will roll in a straight line. You’ll get smashed back if she hits you and probably taking your shield down in the progress. If you get to close, she will try to hit you with a double attack. She can also spit out acid balls. If you get hit, roll to get rid of it.
    • Boss 2: Matron
      The Matron can spawn at 3 spots, on the left, right and directly in front of you. When she does, keep firing at her head. She will disappear in the ground after a while and spawn at a different location. There are hellbugs spawning in the same area, but they hardly harm you. Just keep focusing on the Matron. The Matron does spit out acid balls every now and then, but these can easily be dodge. If they hit you, roll to get rid of the acid.

  • Complete the Motherlode co-op map

    • Enemies: 99ers / Hellbugs
    • Boss: The Motherlode
      The Motherlode’s weak spots are the yellow glowing nodes on his knees and shoulders. First, you’ll have to destroy both his knees. Once those are down, you’ll have to destroy the 4 nodes on his shoulders. Every time you destroy a node, he will kneel and open a critical spot on his stomach. You’ll want to keep some distance, since he will use a sweep/smash attack with his hammer if you get to close. He can also smash the ground and fire a rocket in a straight line at one of you. This can be easily dodged, if you keep some distance. Occasionally he will destroy one of the 4 pillars. Once all 4 pillars are gone, the roof may collapse (your EGO Implant will tell you when it happens), damaging you if you happen to get hit by debris. There’s also a charger core on the wall. Occasionally, he will walk up to it and put his hammer in it. He will charge his weapon with it, which you will get notified about by your EGO Implant when it happens. Quickly aim for the charger core to stop him from charging his weapon. If he charges his weapon, he will be able to use a powerful attack where he will jump and smash the ground. This will unleash energy balls all around him. You can dodge these by standing between two of them. Get to close or try to jump over them, and you’ll get hit.

      99ers will also spawn in this room, which can be quite annoying. Try to focus on the Motherlode, but if you can’t keep your distance from the 99ers kill them. Don't worry about ammo, there are ammo stashes which instantly refill your ammo.
  • Complete the Commandeer Cronkhite co-op map

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Requires an EGO Rating of 500 or complete the "Seize the Day, Control the Future" story mission.
    • Enemies: Dark Matter
    • Boss: Daig
      Daig is protected by Dark Matter soldier and 2 Dark Matter Bulwarks. Lure the Bulwarks towards the tunnel you came from. Slowly move up the hill while destroying the Bulwarks. You can take cover at the back. Once they’re down, it’s time to kill Daig.

      Daig seems to have a lot of health, but that’s only his shield (white bar). Once his shield is down, his red health bar will go down very quickly. If you take too long of a pause between damaging him, he will regain his shield. He will occasionally put up a red barrier in front of him. Don’t waste your time shooting at it. Quickly go around him and shoot him in the back. When that shield goes down, he will use a short dask (Blur) or Cloak for a while. Don't worry about that, it's only for a second and it's harmless. It only throws of your aim.

      Don’t worry about the Dark matter soldiers too much, only focus on them when they’re close. Don't worry about ammo, there are ammo stashes which instantly refill your ammo.

    • Enemies: Dark Matter & Scrappers
    • Boss: Scrapper Arm & Scrapper (Forges)
      This co-op instance doesn’t really have a particular boss. You mainly need to defend yourself from many scrappers. When you reach the end, you’ll see a mechanical scrapper arm in the middle and 2 Scrapper Forges and some other generic scrappers. Focus on the arm first. It has 3 heat sinks, the yellow nodes. Destroy these to destroy the arm. Just stand in front of it and shoot the sinks. If you see him lining up with you, dodge and keep shooting. It can stomp the ground, shoot an energy ball or shoot 3 energy balls right in front of itself in a straight line.

      Once you’ve dealt with the arm, focus on the Scrapper Forges. Their critical spots are the yellow spots (eye and tail). You do the most damage by aiming for its eye, but once that eye goes black, focus on its tail. These aren't all that difficult, but watch out when he charges his tail. He will shoot 3 energy balls which can do quite some damage.

      Don't worry about ammo, there are ammo stashes which instantly refill your ammo.

Also, check every now and then to see which ones are almost complete. These will help you out greatly with EGO Rating.

  • Increase reputation with Von Bach Industries, Soleptor Enterprises, Top Notch Toolworks and Echelon

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    See the Widely Regarded trophy.
  • Get max reputation with Von Bach Industries, Soleptor Enterprises, Top Notch Toolworks and Echelon

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Once you reach EGO Rating 175, you’ll unlock Contracts. You can check your contracts by pressing , hold , go to Goals and press to open the Contracts tab. You’ll see contracts for 5 companies. If you open one, you’ll get to see 2 contracts. The first is a daily contract, the second is a weekly contract. There are 5 companies in total, but you only need to raise your reputation for 4 of them. You don’t have to do the Paradise Territory contracts.

    For Von Bach, Soleptor Enterprises and Top Notch Toolworks, you’ll need to simply kill certain enemies. Even though it says you need to collect items, there’s no actual item drop. Just kill an equal amount of enemies as items needed. For the Echelon faction, you’ll need to play Player versus Player (PvP) matches.

    For some contracts, you need to kill the enemies in co-op maps, or at a specific location. If you need the location, open your map and look at the top left corner and search for the location. Once you’ve found the location, either drive around for random spawns or strongholds. A great and quick way to farm enemies, is to search for Side Missions, or even better, Hotshots and Rampages, and see if they mention the enemies you need. For Hotshots and Rampages, simply keep repeating them. If you start a side mission, once all enemies are dead, abandon the mission ( and press ) and restart it. There are also missions active in an certain area already, without the need of starting them. If you finish such a mission, drive away from the area and return for the enemies to respawn and the mission to restart. If you need help with any of the contracts (enemies, location etc), use this website.

    Enemy respawns are pretty quick, so you can farm it at one place. Also, if anyone else kills the enemies and you’re close by, it will count as a kill for you. While it’s possible to come across the enemies you need while playing the game, do note that you need to complete a contract in 24 hours or 7 days real time. If you fail to do so, it will reset and you’ll have to start a new contract.

    To check your reputation (status), go to the Contracts tab and check the reputation bar for each company. It will tell you the total amount of rep you have and your status. For each daily contract you complete, you’ll earn 10 reputation for that company. For each weekly contract you’ll earn 50 reputation. You will also gain reputation even if you don’t complete a contract, but not as much.

    While the actual max reputation is 1000, you’ll only need to obtain 600 reputation (Trusted Status), which will take you at least 5 weeks of continues play. That's if you complete all the daily and weekly contracts within their limit in those 5 weeks. You probably spend somewhere from 10-30 minutes on daily contracts and anywhere from 1-3 hours on weekly contracts. You can spend your earned reputation at Faction vendors, the 600 reputation is cumulative.
    • 0 REP - Status: Unknown
    • 100 REP - Status: Familiar
    • 300 REP - Status: Reliable
    • 600 REP - Status: Trusted

    You can speed up the progress. How much faster depends on how much money you’re willing to spend. The game has a store with micro-transactions and the PSN Store has booster packs. With real money you can purchase Bits with which you can purchase Skill EGO boosts, or you can get these as part of the booster packs in the PSN Store. You can also join a clan/group and get Clan/Group Reputation boosts. These will stack. To check if there are any boosts active, press and use to open the Boosts tab.
  • Complete your first minor arkfall

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Arkfalls are random events that occur all over the map. If you look on your map (), you’ll sometimes see these red Arkfall icons on your map. If you were to zoom in on them, you would see a small red circle. Travel to one of these locations (you can set a waypoint with ) and enter the red area. You’ll get to see the Arkfall name and other info at the top of the screen once you do.

    You can solo these minor Arkfalls, but it’s of course better to do it with a few more players. However, if a lot of people will show up, the Arkfall will actually become more difficult. Don’t worry about dying. If you can’t revive yourself or there’s no one to help you, you’ll spawn to the closest extraction point and you’ll be able to go back. Once the Arkfall has been completed, you’ll get to see a reward and score board.

    There are two varieties of Minor Arkfalls. (Not counting the different enemies. Enemies differ per region.)
    • Waves:
      You’ll see a wave counter at the top of the screen. Simply complete the waves by killing all enemies. There’s also a time limit. Sometimes you'll also end up with 1 or 2 bonus waves, which also needs to be completed within the time limit.
    • Crystals:
      Each Minor Arkfall has a crystal lodged into the ground in the middle of it. With some of the minor Arkfalls, you need to destroy the crystal.
      • If you're playing a Hellbug Arkfall, don't kill the Skitterlings. They will create the critical weak spot on the crystal.
      • If you're playing a Scrapper Arkfall, you'll need to destroy the surrounding crystals first, the ones without a blue shield.
  • Complete your first major arkfall in the Bay Area

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    See the Arkhunting Safari trophy.
  • Complete 10 major arkfalls in the Bay Area

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Arkfalls are random events that occur all over the map. Major Arkfalls show up the map as a huge red circle, with multiple smaller red circles and red Arkfall icons in it. Major Arkfall consist of multiple minor Arkfalls and a boss at the end. You’ll need to kill waves of enemies or destroy the crystals (see the Arkhunting trophy for more info). All these minor Arkfalls have to be destroyed within the time limit. Once they're destroyed, the timer will refresh for the boss battle. The boss entirely depends on what sort of enemies you have been battling. However, all these bosses have 1 thing in common, they have visible critical spots. Your EGO Implant will also give you some hints on how to defeat the boss.

    While you probably want quite some people for a Major Arkfall, though if a lot of people (30+) will show up, the Arkfall will become much more difficult. If you don't feel like completing 10 of them, you can go to a Major Arkfall and do some damage. Even if you leave the Arkfall area, if they complete it, you'll also gain credit. Don't expect any good rewards though.

    If you want to check your progress, press , hold and go to Goals. Select Season One, Arkfalls, Ark Hunting as a Way of Life II.

  • Earn 50 perks

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    To unlock a perk, you'll need EGO Units. Each time you level up by earning enough EXP, you’ll earn 10 EGO Rating and 1 EGO Unit. You can also directly earn EGO Ratings by completing pursuits for example, but this won’t give you any EGO Units.

    You can wait till you have enough EGO Units and unlock 50 different perks, but this is cumulative. You don't have to have 50 unlocked at once. Most of the perks are EGO Rating restricted, and they need to be linked to open up new perks, so you'll need to be at least EGO Rating 50 and have 3 EGO Units available, to unlock an EGO Power and the other 2 to unlock (and link) new perks.

    You can keep respeccing and unlock a new perk each time. However, it's best to wait until you have quite a few EGO Units, since respec costs scrip and the cost increases each time your EGO Rating goes higher. (EGO Rating x10). To respec, open your EGO Grid and hit .

  • Reach EGO Rating 500

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    See the EGOcentric Arkhunter trophy.
  • Reach EGO Rating 2500

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    You gain EGO Rating by doing almost anything, by either gaining enough EXP to level up, or directly earning EGO Rating. Just go through the main story line, pick up any side mission you can, do some challenges, participate in Arkfalls etc. By doing this you wont only earn EXP, but you’ll also complete pursuits which grant EGO Rating. You'll also gain EGO Rating by leveling your weapon skills.
    • Gain Enough EXP To Level Up: 10 EGO Rating
      • Max EGO By Leveling Up: 2600 EGO Rating.
    • Complete Season One Pursuits: 5, 15 or 40 EGO Rating.
      • Complete All Season One Pursuits: 1200 EGO Rating.

    *Episode Pursuits: After 1 or 2 episodes of the TV Show have aired, they might add Episode Pursuits. Completing these will gain your 5 EGO Rating per pursuit. Some of these episode pursuits will disappear after a certain date. These might return for a period of time.

    You can speed up the progress. How much faster depends on how much money you’re willing to spend. The game has a store with micro-transactions. With real money you can purchase Bits, with which you can purchase XP EGO boosts. The PSN Store has booster packs which contain these boosts as well. You can also join a clan/group and get Clan/Group XP boosts. These will stack. To check if there are any boosts active, press and use to open the Boosts tab.
  • Equip your first legendary weapon

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    The rarity of loot is categorized in colors. Legendary weapons are color coded Orange. Orange is the rarest loot you can find in the game, so don’t expect to find any Legendaries anytime soon. You'll need to find and equip a legendary weapon; shields don't work. The colors are as followed:
    • White (Common)
    • Green (Uncommon)
    • Cyan (Rare)
    • Purple (Epic)
    • Orange (Legendary)
    You can find Legendaries as loot but there's a very slim chance of obtaining a Legendary as loot. Another way is to open lockboxes. If you go to the lockbox vendors, you’ll see 3 different lockboxes. Tier 2, 3 and 4. Each of these have a chance to contain a Legendary. The higher the tier, the higher the chance. You can purchase lockboxes with either Bits (real money), or by using Scrip (in-game currency) + Keycodes. Keycodes can be bought with salvage, or can be earned by doing almost anything in the game. Purchase a lockbox and it will automatically open and put the items in your inventory. (If the items don’t appear one by one on your screen, check your inventory to see if they have been added. If they’re not there, press , hold , open the Defiance Store and go to the Claim Items tab at the bottom.)

    You can get free lockboxes by purchasing the booster packs. You can also use the Trading Thread to obtain a legendary.
  • Max out one weapon skill

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Weapon skills go up to level 20. To max out your weapon skill, you need to simply keep using a certain weapon type. Every time you do damage with a weapon, you’ll gain weapon experience. Each and every weapon in your inventory has a cap to how much experience you can gain with it. If you select a weapon in your inventory, you’ll see a white progress bar with a certain number in it. If you reach the maximum, you won’t gain any experience for that weapon, nor any weapon experience towards the weapon skill if you keep using that weapon, so you’ll need to use a new weapon, from the same weapon type, to gain experience towards the weapon skill. You can use the Reset Weapon Mastery Points in the Salvage matrix to reset your weapon experience, but this will cost you a considerable amount of Ark Salvage. There are many weapon types in the game, but do try to stick to one weapon type as your main.

    This will easily come over time if you don't switch weapon types to often. However, there are 2 methods that will level up your weapon skills very fast. By playing co-op instances, and by using a so called enemy "The Hulker" in San Quention. It's right above the Shondu's Consulate fast travel, at the docks. Go there and you'll need to deactivate 4 generators. Once done, you'll have to fight of waves of enemies. Use the rocket launchers that respawn; you'll instantly kill them with it. Once all waves are completed, the Hulker will spawn. Attack it with the weapon (type) you want to level. Once he's almost dead, get yourself killed and you'll respawn in the same area with the Hulker, who has all his health back. Repeat this to quickly gain weapon EXP and skills. Dying only takes a small amount of Scrip. There's an ammo crate, so don't worry about ammo. Do bring multiple weapons, since you'll level your weapons fairly quickly.

    You can speed up the progress. How much faster depends on how much money you’re willing to spend. The game has a store with micro-transactions and the PSN Store has booster packs. With real money you can purchase Bits with which you can purchase Skill EGO boosts, or you can get these as part of the booster packs in the PSN Store. You can also join a clan/group and get Clan/Group Skill boosts. These will stack. To check if there are any boosts active, press and use to open the Boosts tab.

    You can check your weapon progress, by pressing and use to open the Stats tab. Scroll down for all your weapon levels and progression.
  • Kill 10,000 enemies

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    This will come over time. Just keep playing the game and it will unlock at some point. If you want to farm this for some reason, rampage challenges are a good way to get quick and many kills.

    If you want to check your progress, press , hold and go to Goals. Select Season One, Combat, Living to Kill (III).
  • Revive another player outside the tutorial

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    You’ll come across other players throughout the world. Once they go down, they can self revive. If they can’t, or wish not to, they’ll stay down on the ground and reach out for help until they automatically respawn at the closest extraction point. The place where most players are likely to go down are Arkfalls and co-op instances. Simply run up to the downed player and press and hold to revive them. (If you die in the progress, keep holding . It will still revive them.)

    You’ll need to be on the lookout for downed players, since there isn’t a special icon for downed players, other than when you’re in a group. You may hear their call out for help.
  • Capture 50 points in Shadow War

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Shadow War is a huge PvP game in the PvE world. To win Shadow War, you need to capture the Control Points A, B, C etc. (The amount of Control Points depends on how many people are playing Shadow War). To capture one yourself, you need to stand close to any of the control points and wait long enough for the circle to complete and the screen to mention the capture. The more people, the faster the capture. You don’t have to be the first one at a control point. As long as you’re close by once it’s captured, it will count.

    To start a Shadow War, press and go to matchmaking. Select Shadow War. Alternatively, you can press , hold , go to matchmaking and use to open the Shadow War tab. There’s no lobby system; you’ll queue up instead and can keep playing the game. You can also find Shadow Wars marked on your map as a huge purple circle when they’re in progress.

    You can check your progress, by pressing , hold and go to Pursuits. Select Season One, Competitive Multiplayer, Shadow War Profiteering II.
  • Kill 25 players by running them over

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Needs to be done in Player versus Player (PvP). To run over players, you’ll need vehicles. Vehicles can be found in the Freight Yard map and in Shadow War. You can either use the Cerberus (heavy armored vehicle) or a Hannibal (quad) to run over people. While the Cerberus seems the better choice, if you start a Shadow War, you can spawn a Hannibal wherever you are. And since you're out in the open, it shouldn't be too difficult to run over people. Especially when they're at a capture point. Just make sure to hit them full on at full speed (use your boost, ).

    To increase the durability of your vehicle and to increase the collision damage, you can equip the “Hell on Wheels” perk (2nd on the right of the Decoy power).

    To start a PvP match, press and go to matchmaking. Select Competitive Maps/Shadow War and choose a map or quick match. Alternatively, you can press , hold , go to matchmaking and use to open the Competitive/Shadow War tab. There’s no lobby system, you’ll queue up instead and can keep playing the game.
  • Kill 50 players with headshots

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Needs to be done in any of the Player versus Player (PvP) modes. This will come over time. You'll need to play PvP for a few other trophies and Contracts so you'll end up with more than 50. When you kill someone with a headshot, it will show a headshot kill icon. However, it will only show this icon when you get a headshot with a sniper. Get a headshot with any other weapon and it will show no icon at all. Don't worry though, any headshot counts towards the trophy, icon or not.

    To start a PvP match, press and go to matchmaking. Select Competitive Maps/Shadow War and choose a map or quick match. Alternatively, you can press , hold , go to matchmaking and use to open the Competitive/Shadow War tab. There’s no lobby system, you’ll queue up instead and can keep playing the game.
  • Kill 100 players

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Needs to be done in any of the Player versus Player (PvP) modes. This is accumulative, so it doesn’t have to be done in 1 match.

    To start a PvP match, press and go to matchmaking. Select Competitive Maps/Shadow War and choose a map or quick match.

    You can check your progress, by pressing , hold and go to Pursuits. Select Season One, Competitive Multiplayer, Climbing the Ranks of Echelon II.
  • Jump a total of 5 kilometers with vehicles

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    There are many vehicles in this game, but you’ll receive your first for free in one of the earliest main missions. You can spawn it by pressing . This will easily come over time, since you’ll be using vehicles a lot. There are many jumps and hills in this game, and since the physics don’t really apply to vehicles in this game, you’ll most likely be jumping a lot, whether you want to or not.

    If you've linked your account with a Trion account, you can check your progress here. (Use the Travel Rating pie chart).
  • Swim a total of 1 kilometer

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Jump in the water anywhere in the game and start swimming. There are more than enough places to do this. Be careful with the water surrounding the main land. If your screen turns blue, you’ll die and respawn. It’s accumulative so it doesn’t have to be done at once.

    You can check your progress, by pressing , hold and go to Goals. Select Season One, Ego Evolution, Ego Evolution III.
  • Cross the Golden Gate Bridge

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Story related.

    If you open your map () and scroll a bit down, you’ll see 2 pieces of main land connected by a bridge. This is the Golden Gate Bridge. All you need to do is cross it. Seems simply right? This trophy is called Monolithic Landmark for a reason. The bridge is being defended by a Monolith. This guy is huge and very deadly. He can 1 shot kill you, even if you’re in vehicle. So, how do you cross it? The answer is pretty simple. Complete the “Into the Heart of Darkness” main mission in Act 4. Once this mission is done, the Monolith will be gone and you can simply cross the bridge and the trophy will unlock at the end of the bridge.

    It's possible to unlock this earlier. Spawn on a friend who's in San Francisco and drive back over the bridge.

    You can either buy these from a Vendor, as drops from enemies or as an Arkfall award.

  • Kill the Volge Warmaster

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    This is where the 8/10 difficulty comes in to play. There are some things people need to know on this whole process of beating this beast:

    1: You need 4 arkspikes to call in a Major impact event, this can be split up between 4 players.

    2: Clear the outside area of enemies.

    3: Enter the inside of the Arkfall and clear out the enemies inside.

    After it's clear inside do not remove the Vents for as long as possible, you want as many people there as you can get. Not removing the vents gives you more time before a rookie does it and allows more players to enter the Arkfall. Once the vents are removed do not shoot the 4 anchors until there is at least 20-30 players inside the bottom area. Once someone decides there's enough players, you will only have 7 minutes to defeat the Warmaster before he disappears and the event ends.

    Patch 1.3 has apparently fixed the issue regarding the Warmaster Trophy so you will no longer need to land the kill shot. You just need to be involved.
  • Be in a clan that reaches rank 10 in the Arkfalls activity

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Self explanatory. This will take a long time so I suggest looking for a very large and active clan. Note: Arkbreak activities don't count towards the Arkfall rank.

    Update: There are at least 2 clans that are currently level 10 in arkfalls i.e. Passport2hell and Infamous. To join these clans you need to find someone in one and ask for a invite.. Should be pretty easy.
  • Be in a clan that reaches rank 10 in the Competitive Multiplayer activity

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Reaching Rank 10 in Multiplayer is no small task. This is going be one hell of a grind and I doubt many people will ever get this trophy. The highest PvP clan I have seen was level 4 but with the right clan along with committed players, this will be possible.

    UPDATE: The Clan "Infamous" has now reached level 10 in Pvp so join that clan to achieve this trophy quickly.
  • Kill a Volge Huntmaster

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    To kill The Volge Huntmaster you will need to call down a Minor impact event, this requires 1 spike. The Huntmaster is much easier than the Warmaster but is still tricky to kill. I found a Minor Arkfall off the beaten path and did it solo. I was able to kill the Huntmaster after about 20 deaths and once you kill the first one, two more appear after that. I got destroyed and had to leave the event as I was just dying constantly. If you do this with other players you will need to land the Final shot to get this trophy.

    Note: Not all Minor Arkfall events will have a Huntmaster to kill.
