Welcome to the fifth entry in the Sniper Elite series. The game and the trophies are very similar to the previous entries, you will need to complete the game and all side objectives, get all collectibles, and will need to farm kills to master all weapons. You will also need to finish all missions on Authentic difficulty, however you will be able to manual save whenever you want this time which makes things easier. You are not forced to do it in co-op, even though this might help. And there are very few online trophies, all can be done very quickly.
Step 1: Finish the game and all side objectives and Kill Lists on Civilian (very easy) + get all collectibles
Even though Authentic difficulty is unlocked from the start, it's highly recommended to play on Civilian first to get a feel of the game, and know what to do, plus getting all collectibles will be much easier on very easy difficulty. It doesn't matter if you sneak your way through the mission or if you make a mess and kill everyone, so play however you want and focus on completing the main and side objectives.
There is one Kill List in each mission, and they all have side challenges (ways of killing the targets). You will need to complete them all to unlock the weapons.
You don't have to collect all collectibles now but at least unlocking the workbenches would be a good idea as they unlock new perks for your weapons.
There are many ways to reach or complete your objectives, sometimes finding collectibles will unlock new ways, so just play however you want.
Mission 1: Meeting Resistance
Mission 2: Confirming Suspicions + ( It'll Buff Right Out )
Mission 3: The Kraken Wakes
Mission 4: It's Starting to Crack + ( Locomotion Commotion )
Mission 5: Change the Channel
Mission 6: Taking it back + ( Up Close and Personal )
Mission 7: Target America + ( Road Rage )
Mission 8: The Kraken Sleeps + ( Don't hold your breath )
Mission9: ( Can't Outrun A Bullet + Brains of the Operation + Sight Beyond Sights )
No Stone Unturned
Step 2: Finish the game on Authentic difficulty
Now that you know your way through the missions, you can tackle Authentic difficulty. The HUD will be deactivated, you won't see any marker on your way, the sniping will be realistic so it'll be much harder to sniper from afar, and the enemies will deal way more damage.
Focus on main objectives only and try to stay stealth at all time. You can save whenever you want and reload if things go wrong so make sure to save a lot.
You can also play in coop to make things even easier, but you're not forced to. Just take your time and don't run and gun as that will immediately lead to your death.
Best of the Best
Step 3: Clean-up
If you haven't picked up all collectibles or earned the mission specific trophies, now would be a good time to do it. The longest trophies here will be to master all weapons, as you will need to get 50 Ghost Kills will all handguns, 150 kills with all machine guns, and 50 kills from more than 100m with all snipers. There are a few other kill related trophies that will need multiple kills, the very good thing about all these trophies is that they can be farmed with save/reload on the same enemy(ies).

Step 4: Online and Survival
Now all you'll have left is the online and Survival trophies. You'll only have to play a team based match in the online part of the game, plus invade someone's game and defeat them and kill someone that invades you. The Survival part will take a bit more time as you'll have to complete 3 different Survival missions (can't replay the same one), you'll have to survive 12 waves of soldiers each time.
