Introduction

Prototype is back! The original [Prototype] game was released back in 2009 and was one of the top selling titles of its time. This time, you are playing as Sgt. James Heller and have similar abilities as Alex Mercer who was the main protagonist in the first game of the franchise. In comparison to Prototype 1, lots of technical improvements have been made. The graphics look much better now and the game offers a very user friendly design that will come in handy on your way to platinum.

There are a total of 9 story related trophies and many others will come naturally. All of the combat abilities and attacks are unlocked automatically from the main plot missions. After progressing in the story you will be able to use vehicles (tanks, APC's and helicopters) and something called airbridges that allow you to travel to other islands. It's recommended to do two playthroughs because you will need lots of XP to fully upgrade Heller. After finishing the story you will be in a free roam mode. Here you can do all of the side missions and get all of the collectibles. New Game+ will also unlock after finishing the last story mission. It allows you to replay the story without losing any combat abilities or upgrades.

Good luck with all of the trophies and enjoy the game!
 

Walkthrough


Step 1 - Beating the Story on Easy Difficulty

This step is simple. Just play through the game as you wish and don't pay much attention to any trophies. I recommend doing two playthroughs, even if hard difficulty wouldn't be a big challenge on the first run. After your first playthrough you will still need lots of XP for the All Growed Up trophy.

While playing through the story consume every enemy that has a yellow symbol above their head. Try to get the majority of mission bonuses because it will reward you with extra XP.

Keep the following icons in mind:
= Bonus XP
= Upgrades (There are a total of 46)
= Blacknet Targets


Also make sure to get all of the collectibles you accidentally run into.


Step 2 - Mop Up

Now it's time to get all of the remaining trophies in free roam mode (except Master Prototype & All Growed Up). Gather all of the collectibles and do all of the side missions until there is nothing left to do but beating the game on hard and reaching the maximum evolution level. Check out the detailed trophy descriptions in the guide below if you are unsure about certain trophies. Don't worry if you are still missing some upgrades for the Finally Full trophy. You can still get the missing ones in New Game+.

Step 3 - Beating New Game+ on Hard Difficulty

In this step you can simply rush through the story with your insanely overpowered Sgt. Heller. Go back to the main menu and click on "New Game+". The game will use your latest save file and all your upgrades and XP will carry over! You should be done within 5-6 hours and should reach the maximum level on your way to the final battle. Try to get all the missions bonuses and consume the targets that will give you bonus XP.

If you should be missing any trophies for whatever reason then make sure to get them here or go back to one of your previous save games on easy difficulty.

 

-Game Breaking Glitch Warning-

There currently is a glitch that prevents you from progressing any further in the story. No new main missions can be played if the glitch occurs. The new missions won't show up on your map and even if you find their starting point nothing will happen. This happens randomly and there is no known fix! The best precaution you can take is to save the game on a different save-slot very frequently. In case the game glitches you can load one of these older save games without losing too much progress.

  • Find all BlackBoxes.

    BlackBoxes are one of the collectible types in Prototype 2. Once they are in a radius of ~160 feet you will see a symbol in the bottom right corner of the screen. It shows you how far the Blackbox is away and helps you to locate its position.

    There are a total of 45 BlackBoxes. If you go to your collectibles in-game map you can see little pulses that indicate missing collectibles. Press / to switch between different collectible types. Mark the pulse location on your map and search the area to obtain the BlackBox.

  • Defeat all Field Ops teams.

    Fields Ops teams are one of the collectible types in Prototype 2. Once they are in a radius of ~160 feet you will see a symbol on your screen. You need to kill all of the marked targets to make it count.

    There are a total of 28 Field Ops teams. If you go to your collectibles in-game map you can see little pulses that indicate missing collectibles. Press / to switch between different collectible types. Mark the pulse location on your map and search the area to find and elimiate the Field Ops team.

  • Destroy a Strike Team in 15 seconds or less.

    Strike teams are helicopters that will chase you after attacking enemy properties or soldiers. You will see a text warning saying "Strike Team inbound" if they are chasing you. On the screen the strike teams are marked with a red lightning in a circle shape.

    It's recommended to do this on the first island (Yellow Zone) because only one helicopter will be chasing you. On the second island, there will be two helicopters and on the third one three helicopters. Get yourself a helicopter near an enemy base, create some damage to trigger the strike team and destroy it with your helicopter.

    Alternatively, you can also buy the finisher upgrade that lets you take out helicopters immediately. Just jump on the helicopter and press to destroy it.

  • 5 consumes in 10 seconds or less.

    This will likely come naturally while playing through the game. Search a group of civilians, soldiers, or infected and consume them as fast as possible. The consume ability will automatically be learned in the very beginning of the game.

  • Acquire 5 Mutations.

    You will unlock mutations from completing collectible sets and finishing blacknet dossiers. This trophy will unlock automatically while getting all of the other collectibles.

  • Dismember a Brawler.

    Brawlers are monsters that look like mutated gorillas with devastating claws. They are the first infected form you will fight in the game. Equip your claws and keep attacking a brawler with combo attacks (quickly smash the same button over and over again). Once their health is low you will dismember them. This trophy should come naturally while playing through the story.

  • 10 or more kills with a single Black Hole attack.

    You will automatically learn the Black Hole ability during a main plot mission on the first island (Yellow Zone). You need to select the Tendrils in your weapon wheel and hold down the attack button. It does not matter if you kill 10 civilians, soldiers or infected. They all count as long as you kill 10 at once. You can find lots of infected inside lairs and on the streets of the third island (Red Zone).

  • Deflect 5 missiles at enemies using Shield Block.

    You will automatically learn the Shield Block ability during a main plot mission on the first island (Yellow Zone). Quickly press once an enemy soldier or helicopter is shooting a rocket on you. This should come naturally while playing through the story.

  • Simultaneously kill 2 Brawlers using a single Devastator.

    This can easily be done in the mission where you learn the Devastator ability. The mission is called 'Orion Phase Two' and takes place relatively early in the game, on the first island (Yellow Zone). Right after getting the ability you will need to consume some soldiers to power up your Devastator attack. A cutscene will begin to play and lots of Brawlers will come in (they look like mutated gorillas with devastating claws). Damage two Brawlers until half of their health is gone and hold down + when they are nearby.

    You can also get this later in free roam or during other missions. If you have all bio mass upgrades you can also kill the brawlers instantly without damaging them first.

  • Destroy a single Lair.

    Please refer to Spindler's Search on how to destroy all lairs.

  • Stealth hijack 5 tanks or APCs.

    Tanks and APCs are the armored vehicles you can drive. You will automatically learn the required ability during a main plot mission on the second island (Green Zone). You cannot enter any vehicles before this point of the game! Once you got the Armor Hijacking ability move to an enemy base and enter an enemy tank without causing an alert. You need to be in a military costume to avoid being detected. Stealth Hijack five different tanks or make them respawn by using airbridges.

  • Destroy 10 Blackwatch tanks, APCs or helicopters using a single hijacked tank or APC.

    You will automatically learn the Armor Hijacking ability during a main plot mission on the second island (Green Zone). You should wait until you got some armor upgrades by consuming enemies (see Finally Full trophy). The best location to do this is on the third island (Red Zone) near the enemy base where the most northern airbridge is located. On the streets around this base are lots of moving tanks. Hijack one of the heavily armored ones, drive around to take out other ground units and destroy incoming strike teams and helicopters. The 10 kills have to be done with one single vehicle. If your vehicle gets destroyed, the counter will be reset.

  • Consume 10 //BLACKNET targets.

    Blacknet targets are marked with symbols on your screen and map when they are nearby. Consume those targets whenever you see the symbol popping up above someones head. Once such a target is consumed a short memory cutscene will begin to play and you are informed about your new blacknet dossier progress. The targets appear randomly. Don't worry if you killed one by accident, they will respawn somewhere else until you consumed them.

  • Acquire a Mutation in each of the 5 categories.

    Mutations are unlocked from completing collectible sets (BlackBoxes, Field Ops, Lairs) and finishing Blacknet Dossiers. This trophy unlocks automatically while getting all of the collectibles. If you need help finding them then please check out their respective trophy descriptions.

  • Travel a half mile using only Wall Run, Glide, Jump and Air Dash.

    All you need for this are two tall buildings. Run up one of the buildings and jump to the other, but make sure to use Air Dash as well as the Glide ability. After doing this for 2 minutes the trophy should be yours.

  • 20 or more kills with a single Hammerfist dive attack.

    This can easily be done in the mission where you learn the Hammerfist ability. The mission is called 'A Nest of Vipers' and takes place on the second island (Green Zone). Once you get the ability from killing a juggernaut jump as high as possible and hold down the attack button to launch a Hammerfist Dive attack. There are lots of infected people in the lair which should make this easy.

    You can also get this later in free roam or during other missions. It works best inside lairs because there are lots of infected close together. If you destroyed all lairs already then go to the center of the third island (Red Zone) and round up some infected on the streets.

  • 10 or more kills using a single Bio-Bomb.

    You will automatically learn the Bio-Bomb ability during a main plot mission on the second island (Green Zone). It works best against infected people because they will run towards you in large hordes. You can find lots of them on the third island (Red Zone) and inside lairs. Grapple an enemy and press to activate the Bio-Bomb. Throw the enemy into a group of at least 10 persons.

  • Destroy 5 helicopters using Pack Leader.

    You will automatically learn the Pack Leader ability during a main plot mission on the second island (Green Zone). Activating this ability requires bio mass which is gained by consuming enemies. Once you have enough bio mass press + to summon your pack. If a manned enemy helicopter is nearby lock it with and press to let your pack attack it. You can also do this against the strike team helicopters. Simply kill soldiers or damage military properties until a strike team is inbound.

  • Weaponize 10 vehicles.

    Jump on enemy tanks or helicopters by pressing while in the air and rip off their weapons by pressing . Repeat the process 10 times.

  • Counter enemy attacks 20 times using Shield.

    You will automatically learn the Shield Block ability during a main plot mission on the first island (Yellow Zone). When fighting super soldiers, brawlers or boss enemies you can counter their attacks by pressing in the right moment. This should come naturally while playing through the game.

  • Karate kick a helicopter.

    This can be done anywhere and at any time as long as a helicopter is chasing you. Jump as high as possible and hold down while you are in the air. Make sure that you have your fists equipped and no other weapons! You can also kick the unmanned airbridge helicopters to unlock this trophy.

  • Mount a helicopter using Whipfist.

    You will automatically learn the Whipfist ability during a main plot mission on the third island (Red Zone). Select the Whipfist in the weapon wheel and press while aiming on a helicopter. If you did it correctly, Heller should grapple the helicopter.

  • Destroy 5 vehicles using a Finisher.

    Finishers are one of the upgrade types that can be bought after reaching a new evolution level. Once you unlocked a finisher, jump on an enemy vehicle and destroy it by pressing .

  • Spend at least 25 consecutive seconds in the air (helicopters don't count).

    You will have to max out Heller's movement abilities first! You will need the Double or Triple Air Dash and the maxed out jump height. You can only do this after reaching the third island (Red Zone). Once on top of the tallest building, try to run up the pole in the middle and make a high jump by holding down . Make sure that you didn't waste any air dashes until this point. They are gonna save you a couple seconds on your way down. Once in the air, keep tapping the 'Glide-Button' very quickly (). If you keep holding the button you will reach the ground too early. Once you begin to fall too quickly use your Air Dash. This will give you back some extra height.

  • Acquire 10 upgrades through Consumes.

    Please refer to Finally Full on how to acquire all upgrades.

  • Acquire 30 upgrades through Consumes.

    Please refer to Finally Full on how to acquire all upgrades.

  • Acquire all 46 upgrades through Consumes.

    While playing through the game keep an eye out for enemies that have the symbol above their head. Try to consume all those targets instead of killing them the normal way. Each one will give you an upgrade to one of your combat abilities. Don't worry if one of those targets gets killed by accident. They keep respawning randomly until you got all 46 upgrades.

    After doing all main plot and blacknet side missions you should already have all of the upgrades. In case you are still missing some then keep flying over the streets until you find the rest or get them in New Game+. There are upgrade related brawlers in military bases that will respawn each time you finish a main plot mission. To open their cages you need to be in military disguise.

  • Reach the highest point in the world.

    You can do this once you reach the third island (Red Zone). You will get there after progressing in the story. Airbridges allow you to travel from island to island.

    Look out for the tallest building around the center of the Red Zone (Midtown district). Simply run all the way up the building until you reach the highest point.

  • Destroy all Lairs.

    Lairs are one of the collectible types in Prototype 2. Once they are in a radius of ~160 feet you will see a symbol on your screen. You need to enter the lair and kill all of the marked targets inside.

    There are a total of 9 Lairs. If you go to your collectibles in-game map you can see how many Lairs are in each area and how many you found already. While viewing the map press / to switch between different collectible types. Keep flying close over the streets until you discover the missing lairs.

  • Complete all //BLACKNET dossiers.

    In order to complete all //BLACKNET dossiers you will have to finish all of the //BLACKNET side missions and need to consume all //BLACKNET targets.

    The missions can be started over certain //BLACKNET terminals and are marked with the symbol on your in-game map.

    //BLACKNET targets are marked with symbols on your screen and map when they are nearby. Consume those targets whenever you see the symbol popping up above someones head. Once such a target is consumed a short memory cutscene will begin to play and you are informed about your new blacknet dossier progress. The targets appear randomly. Don't worry if you killed one by accident, they will respawn somewhere else until you consumed them.

  • Stealth Consume 50 Blackwatch troopers.

    Blackwatch troopers are the enemies in blue military costumes with the armored shoulder plate on the right. You can find them in enemy bases and will encounter them a lot during main plot and blacknet missions. Get a military costume yourself to stay undetected. You need to make sure that the troopers are not being watched. Press and look for troopers that are displayed in white color. Those are the ones you can stealth consume. The ones that are displayed in red color cannot be stealth consumed. To perform the stealth consume sneak up without drawing the enemies attention on you and press , followed by .

  • Trigger 50 alerts.

    This should be one of your first trophies and will unlock naturally while playing through the game. Alerts are triggered after suspicious behavior, damaging military properties and killing enemies or civilians in public.

  • Fully upgrade Heller.

    This is the most time consuming trophy in the game. You will need a total of 2.530.000 XP and the maximum level is evolution level 23.

    Always try to consume enemies with the symbol above their head. This will reward you thousands of fast and easy XP. Also pay attention on the bonus targets during main plot missions. The bonuses are fairly easy to get and if you messed up you can still reload the checkpoint and try again. The main plot missions will give you the majority of XP though. After finishing all main and side missions and getting all of the collectibles you should be somewhere between level 18-20.

    I recommend to do two playthroughs. Do the first one on easy and get all of the collectibles. Then you create a New Game+ on hard difficulty and get the remaining XP just from the main plot missions. All of your upgrades and XP carry over into your New Game+.

  • Complete the game on HARD difficulty.

    This can (and should) be done in New Game+! Simply complete all of the main plot missions on hard difficulty, without changing difficulty settings. I recommend to do two playthroughs. Do the first one on easy and get all of the collectibles. Then you create a New Game+ on hard difficulty and mop up the remaining trophies. Hard difficulty itself is a piece of cake if you already have the upgrades from a previous playthrough. This playthrough will take you 5-6 hours only.

    The hardest part is the final bossfight:

    When fighting Alex Mercer on hard you won't have a chance to refill your health during the rounds, but if you die you will restart the current round with full health. Alex is quite powerful if you try to fight him in direct combat (especially when he is using the whipfist). A good tactic is to equip the hammerfist, jump up as high as possible and smash back down to the ground by holding down the attack button. It takes some while, but is a safe and easy method to survive the whole fight without getting a scratch. In round 1 and 3 you can also use the Whipfist to speed up the process. Keep jumping and perform long range attacks.
