Killzone Mercenary 'Dedicated To The Cause' Contracts Guide
Killzone Mercenary Intel Location Guide
Trophy Boosting Thread (Read First Post!)
There is only one goal in Killzone Mercenary, Get Rich or Die Tryin’. But you won’t find 50 Cent here and there are no Dr. Dre beats or Eminem guest appearances to be found in this gritty first-person shooter for the PlayStation Vita.
Killzone Mercenary separates itself from the previous three titles by placing you in the role of a mercenary. You are no longer an enlisted soldier following the orders of unseen superiors. Now you fight for money and money has no allegiances, so you will find yourself fighting for and against both the ISA and Helghast.
The single player campaign consists of nine intense missions that will make you rich. The multiplayer will not only line your pockets with more dough, it will also keep you coming back so you can expel your enemies with flair using newly bought weapons and VAN-Guards. Killzone Mercenary is a console quality FPS on a handheld device that should not be missed by shooter fans.
Step 1: Complete all Mission contracts on Veteran, obtaining all Intel
First of all, complete all nine Mission contracts on Veteran difficulty. You don't have to do Veteran difficulty first if you'd rather familiarize yourself with the game first, but for the sake of efficiency you can do it right off the bat. Try and obtain the Intel if you can, but it isn't vital to obtain it all during your first playthrough, as you'll be replaying each Contract at least three more times. You can also attempt the contract-specific trophies if you so choose, but you’ll have plenty of time to achieve these.
Upon completing Step 1, you will earn:
Above and Beyond
Is It Safe?
Step 2: Complete all Covert, Demolition and Precision contracts on any difficulty
Once you finish a contract, you'll be able to replay them in one of three variants: Covert, Demolition and Precision. These are the same as the Mission contracts, except you have to use specific weapons/equipment and have a set of criteria you must fulfill in order to pass. Unlike the Mission contracts however, you don't have to complete these on Veteran, so they shouldn't be too daunting. If you decide to complete these on Veteran, then you’ll receive a sizeable bonus towards the V$1,000,000 for Millionaire.
Upon completing Step 2, you will earn:
Dedicated To The Cause
Step 3: Multiplayer
This doesn't necessarily have to be 3rd step, you can really do this at any point if you so wish. You'll be required to play at least 100 matches of multiplayer in order to receive Centurion, in which time you'll likely get all other multiplayer trophies without even trying. Depending on skill and luck, you may have to boost Spangled and Killing Machine. If you intend to boost, please use the Trophy Boosting Thread (Read First Post!)
Note: These trophies cannot be boosted in private matches, in order to boost them you must be playing in public lobbies. This means you'll likely need to meet up with friends in a secluded part of a map, or manage to get a lobby by yourself.
If you like, you can purchase the Botzone Soldier Training DLC for £1.99/€2.49/$3.65AUD/$2.49USD to make acquiring many of the online trophies easier. Most trophies can be earned in Botzone, with the main exceptions being Noob and Well-rounded. Please see the respective trophies for details.
Upon completing Step 3, you will earn:
Deflector Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Supply Chain Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Anti-Air Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Noob Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Centurion Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Spangled Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Well-rounded Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Redeemer Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Get Your Filthy Hands Off Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Killing Machine Unobtainable due to server shutdown
Step 4: Clean-up
By this point, you'll likely be missing a few of the miscellaneous trophies, particularly the contract-specific ones. So go ahead and clean up whatever trophies you have remaining, it shouldn't take long. Chances are you’ll still need several thousand kills, so feel free to grind it out either in multiplayer or in single player.
Upon completing Step 4, you will earn:
Aces High Unobtainable due to server shutdown
I Want That One
Master At Arms
Man Vs. Machine
No Way Home
Just To Be Sure
Up Close And Personal
Which will ultimately unlock:
Platinum Unobtainable due to server shutdown
