Introduction:

Welcome to the Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts: Trophy Guide and Roadmap. This is the latest iteration in the Sniper Ghost Warrior series where you have been selected to fulfil contract details set for you by a shadowy third party handler. The main game consists of 24 contracts spread over five regions in the newly formed Siberian Republic, with each region having up to six main objectives to complete. Within each region there are several secondary challenges which are not required for mission completion, but have trophies attached to them toward gaining the . The game offers multiple ways for you to go about completing each individual contract and for the you will play through each region once for the story related trophies, a second partial playthrough of each region for the Deadeye related trophies and multiple times to obtain 24 out of 30 challenges for a trophy and to earn tokens to buy skills for the skills related trophies.

The game also has collectables that you will need to pick up and bounties that you will need to complete – everything is quite linear and all items are shown on the in-game map.


Glitch Notes:

The Evolution trophy. Unless you play with the latest patch (1.08 at time of writing) there are reports that some Challenge tokens are not being awarded after their respective challenges have been completed.

With 1.08 this glitch has been fixed and tokens are being awarded properly.

There is also a glitch that allows you to buy all the skills in the game and retain the $ and tokens those skills cost - see Evolution for more details.


Walkthrough:

Step 1: Play through each region on Marksman difficulty while completing all main objectives, collecting collectables and completing bounties.

To begin with, you will need to complete the training exercise which involves you shooting targets using various types of ammunition. After completing this you will have access to the first mission. You can play through all the missions on Marksman difficulty, which is the easiest difficulty. You will naturally complete some of the challenge objectives as you play and as you progress, you will be able to purchase equipment and ammunition with the $ you earn and loot from bodies in the game. Upgraded ammunition and gadgets will enable you to complete the more complex challenges so feel free to do as many as you are able.

Any collectables and bounties that you miss during your first playthrough will still be available when you reload the region in subsequent playthrough so nothing is missable.

During this step, you will earn the following trophies:

Snowstorm
Black Gold
Cosa Nostra
Exitus Acta Probat
Final Countdown
Private Contractor
Military Contractor
SpecOps Contractor
Trial by Ice
Navigator
The Little Picture
The Bigger Picture
The Whole Picture
Mercenary
Headhunter
Assassin
One-man Army


Step 2: Load each region selecting Deadeye difficulty and complete one objective in each region.

Your next step will be to replay each region selecting the Deadeye difficulty (which is the hardest difficulty) and to complete just one objective in each region. You can redo the shortest and easiest objective in each region to earn each of the region specific Deadeye trophies. Deadeye difficulty means that enemies will see and hear you more easily, will be alerted more easily, will be more accurate and are harder to kill – whereas you will take more damage.

After completing step one you will be able to purchase upgrades to your suit, mask and weaponry that will help you camouflage better and have better tools to do the job.

During this step, you will earn the following trophies:

Frost Wolf
Debt Collector
Executioner
Doppelganger
Warlord


Step 3: Complete 24 out of the 30 available challenges.

This is the main step that will take up most of the time toward you earning the platinum. In this step you will need to replay each region either partially or wholly to complete 24 of the 30 available challenges throughout the game. Challenges are all region specific. Some of the challenges will come naturally as you play (i.e. 20 headshots), some will require you to purchase particular items such as the Remote Sniper or EMP bullets and mines etc. And some will require you to do an entire region playthrough with a single point of challenge i.e complete all objectives in X time limit/without raising alarm or only kill X character. You can skip the hardest ones, as the only requires that you complete 24 challenges. The majority of the challenges are not overly difficult – especially if you are going for them. Some you will get without too much effort, some will take more effort and planning – all can be gotten on the lowest Marksman difficulty.

I have written a guide for each of the challenges which can be found here.

During this step, you will earn the following trophies:

Trial by Fire
Trial by Blood
Initiation
Growth
Evolution


Step 4: Cleanup all miscellaneous trophies.

With the main challenges out of the way, all you should have left are miscellaneous trophies for killing a main target in certain ways, kill and a distance kill related trophies. You can load up and replay any region to collect anything you may have missed prior.

During this step, you will earn the following trophies:

Virtuoso
Efficient
Sniper
Freerunner
Interrogator
Gunny
Sapper
Hawk
Hitman
Shade
Deadeye
Gunslinger
Jack of all Trades
Seeker

  • Unlock all trophies

    Unlocked when you complete all the other trophies in the game, congratulations on a job well done.

  • Complete ALTAI MOUNTAINS Region

    Story related, cannot be missed.

    Complete all 5 contract objectives in the Altai Mountains region and exfiltrate the mission for the first time.

    It is generally up to you how you go about each of the contract objectives, the map offers a linear progression as well as a free-to-roam ability. Simply complete all 5 contract objectives in the Altai Mountains region in any order that you like and exfiltrate the mission for the first time.

    After completing any single contract mission, you will be given an exfil point that is marked on your map and in the world. You can choose whether to exfil at that point or carry on with the other contract missions. When you go to an exfil point, the game autosaves all your progress and then gives you an option to continue or exit from the region completion stats page. Continuing takes you back into the map, whereas exiting takes you back to the main menu – from where you can continue the mission at a later time.

    During the missions you can view all the objective locations and collectables by opening your map using the . Individual objectives are listed in the lower left of the map which you can scroll through to pinpoint each general area of each contract. You can also track your challenges/collectables using the and buttons while viewing the map page.

    When you begin the first mission, you will be tasked with turning off the power to the perimeter fence. this is just a very basic tutorial for the mask's abilities and climbing. Once you have turned off the power you will start the mission proper and it is at this point where the missions contract objectives will be given to you.

    Here are the 5 contract objectives:

    1: Download Ivanovsk's plans.
    2: Find the client's spy.
    3: Eliminate Dimitri Ivanovski.
    4: Destroy all test results.
    5: Steal samples of the virus.

    Contract #5 – once you steal the samples you will be notified that they are volatile and that you should avoid combat. It is probably best to leave this contract objective till the last. If you do them in order, then you will be coming back past their location after completing #4 and heading for your exfil so you can pick them up en route at that point. Beware though, that when you get near to the exfil there will be enemies near to it and a sniper in the distance to the south. If you have skills such as Wraith unlocked they won't pose too much of an issue and you can take them out with relative ease.

  • Complete KOLCHAK HARBOR Region

    Story related, cannot be missed.

    Complete all 5 contract objectives in Kolchak Harbour region and exfiltrate the mission for the first time:

    1: Hack the electronic logbook.
    2: Kill Leonid Nizhlev.
    3: Plant C4 under the Icebreaker.
    4: Eliminate Igor P Sekhov.
    5: Obtain smartphone.

    I recommend doing contract objectives 2, 1, 5, 3, 4. The reason for this is the trophy ‘Hitman’ which requires you to kill Sekhov and exfiltrate in under one minute. Leaving it till last enables you to be at a point where all you have to do is kill him and leave. Once you have cleared all the enemies out from the area, obtained the smartphone and planted the C4 you can exfil and the game makes an auto save. You can then back out of your game and save to cloud. Starting the game up and continuing takes you to the point where all you have to do is kill Sekhov and escape. If you fail the hitman trophy, you are able to reload your save from cloud and try again. For more info on this see the Hitman walkthrough.

  • Complete BEKETOV VALLEY Region

    Story related, cannot be missed.

    Complete all 5 contract objectives in Beketov Valley region and exfiltrate the mission for the first time:

    1: Free the prisoner
    2: Eliminate Sacha Petroshenko
    3: Eliminate Agvan G Dorzhiev
    4: Obtain the hidden camera recordings
    5: Find evidence of Dorzhievs Illegal Activities.

    Contract Objectives 2 and 3 can be carried out at the same time if you wait for both parties to come together – this is best done from distance, as when you are near to where they meet in Petroshenko's mansion you will likely raise an alarm and the meeting will be cancelled. There is a spot in a church roof that is over 200m from Petroshenko's mansion where you can lie in wait for the meeting to take place – you can trigger the meeting by observing Petroshenko through your binoculars . I recommend you keep an eye on the hills to the left of the mansion and mark the sniper (he can then be taken out after you have taken out the two main targets). There are challenges that require you to kill 5 enemies from 200m, here is a good spot as there are several enemies in the mansion complex. There is another challenge that requires you to kill Petroshenko and Dorzhiev from over 300m distance, which you should get at this point when they are together. There is another challenge requiring that you interrogate Dorzhiev. To do this it is best to kill Petroshenko as soon as you can which will trigger an alarm and the meeting to be cancelled. Dorzhiev will then return to the mining area where objective 5 is at.

    For a visual guide to killing the main targets see the video in the Executioner walkthrough.

  • Complete ARAKCHEYEV FORTRESS Region

    Story related, cannot be missed.

    Complete all 6 contract objectives in Arakcheyev Fortress region and exfiltrate the mission for the first time:

    1: Obtain Evidence of Genetic Experimentation.
    2: Eliminate Zikita Zaystev.
    3: Steal Pendrive from Nikita Zeystev
    4: Find Proof of Program Casualties.
    5: Eliminate Antanasia X Alikhanova.
    6: Destroy Genetics Program Data

  • Complete SIBIRSKAYA-7 JUNCTION Region

    Story related, cannot be missed.

    Complete all 4 contract objectives in Sibirskaya-7 Junction region and exfiltrate the mission for the first time:

    1: Eliminate Xenik Alikhanov
    2: Obtain Intelligence About The Weapons System
    3: Sabotage the train carrying the missiles.
    4: Eliminate Nergui Kurchatov.

  • Complete ALTAI MOUNTAINS Region on the highest difficulty

    The Deadeye trophies can all be done by completing just one contract objective in their respective regions. You do not need to finish all contracts on Deadeye difficulty once you have completed them all on another difficulty. When you re-start each mission on Deadeye difficulty just choose the easiest objective for you, complete it and exfiltrate. The mission specific trophy will pop once you exfil. For completing this mission on Deadeye difficulty, I found that the quickest objective to do is #2: Find the Client's Spy.

    The trophy will pop once you reach the exfil point and safely exfiltrate the info.

  • Complete KOLCHAK HARBOR Region on the highest difficulty

    If you have completed the region on an easier difficulty, you only need complete one objective and exfil the region for the trophy to pop. When you re-start each mission on Deadeye difficulty just choose the easiest objective for you, complete it and exfiltrate. The mission specific trophy will pop once you exfil.

    For completing this mission on Deadeye difficulty, I found that the quickest objective to do is #2: Kill Leonid Nizhlev. To get to him fast, use the fast travel in the North-East point (furthest right), then run down the road towards the ship with the containers on where he will be. Use your binoculars :Left: and look at the boat with the containers, look for a barrel that has a fire in it. Nizhlev will walk back and forward to this barrel where he will wait for a short time. He can be easily sniped from the bank, and you can then run back up the hill to the exfil marker. By completing this task in under five minutes, you will also score a challenge token. The trophy will pop once you reach the exfil point and safely exfiltarte the info.

    In the "Shade" trophy description is a video showing where to find Nizhlev. Once you get to the bank, you can wait for him to arrive at the fire barrel and snipe him from there easily.

  • Complete BEKETOV VALLEY Region on the highest difficulty

    If you have completed the region on an easier difficulty, you only need complete one objective and exfil the region for the trophy to pop. When you re-start each mission on Deadeye difficulty just choose the easiest objective for you, complete it and exfiltrate. For completing this mission on Deadeye difficulty, I found that the quickest objective to do is #2: Eliminate Sasha Petroshenko. Petroshenko can be killed from the Church rooftop that overlooks his mansion from across the water. Take a high calibre rifle with an upgraded scope that allows you to zoom in to up to 400m. You can also take explosive rounds for a larger area of damage or Darpra rounds for better accuracy. The church is located south of Petroshenko's mansion, and can be found by using the fast travel icon on the map. There are a few enemies around the church, they can all be taken out with a silenced pistol. You can choose whether to kill Petroshenko then leave the way you came to the exfil point or wait for Dorzhiev and kill them both from the church roof for a challenge token before leaving. The trophy will pop once you reach the exfil point and safely exfiltrate the info.

    Here is a visual guide to killing Petroshenko & Dorzhiev:

  • Complete ARAKCHEYEV FORTRESS Region on the highest difficulty

    If you have completed the region on an easier difficulty, you only need complete one objective and exfil the region for the trophy to pop. When you re-start each mission on Deadeye difficulty just choose the easiest objective for you, complete it and exfiltrate.

    For completing this mission on Deadeye difficulty, I found that the quickest objective to do is #2: Kill Nikita Alikhanova. Alikhanova can be found with her body double on the helipad near to the Northern most fast travel point. Take a high calibre rifle with (preferably) explosive rounds. Head straight from the fast travel point and navigate the mine-field ahead by using your mask’s scout ability . Slightly to the left is a wall you can climb with a sniper beyond, take him out with a silenced weapon and then look toward the helipad – you will see Alikhanova there with her body double and a number of guards. Use your explosive rounds to take her out – if you hit the heli with an explosive round it will explode and if you kill 5 enemies will net you some challenge tokens too. If you miss her, just reload checkpoint which will respawn you in the snipers nest for another try. The trophy will pop once you reach the exfil point and safely exfiltrate the info.

    Here is a visual guide to get to Nikita Alikhanova and exfil:

  • Complete SIBIRSKAYA-7 JUNCTION Region on the highest difficulty

    If you have completed the region on an easier difficulty, you only need complete one objective and exfil the region for the trophy to pop. When you re-start each mission on Deadeye difficulty just choose the easiest objective for you, complete it and exfiltrate. For completing this mission on Deadeye difficulty, I found that the quickest objective to do is #2: Obtain Intelligence about the Weapons System.

    You are best taking a silenced sniper rifle for ease and you can fast travel almost right to the objective in the dam area. Head down to the tunnel and climb the ladder – there are two enemies and one camera that you should take out. One enemy is in the centre area of the dam in front of you once you come out from the ladder. There will be a camera to your left behind you and a second enemy up high to your right. Once they have been taken out, head up the steps to the objective and then use the zipline to escape. You will have three or four enemies at the end of the zipline but the contract objective can be completed in just a few minutes. The trophy will pop once you reach the exfil point and safely exfiltrate the info.

    Here is a visual guide:

  • Buy your first skill

    See Evolution for more details.

  • Buy 28 skills

    See Evolution for more details.

  • Buy 57 skills

    Requires the 1.08 patch installed to unlock properly

    Skills and upgrades can be bought by accessing the Loadout menu. From the main menu go: Contracts => Loadouts => Development.

    Here you can upgrade your Mask, your Suit, your support items and gadgets. Each of these items has skill trees attached to them with various different functionalities. Skills can be bought for in-game currency and challenge tokens. $ rewards are given for completing contracts and bounties and from looting dead bodies - there is a skill upgrade that allows you to loot enemies when you melee kill them. Challenge tokens are rewarded for completing challenges and vary from 1 - 3 tokens depending on the challenge.

    The mask, suit and gadgets all have three skill trees, while support has two, giving a total of 60 skills across all items. Each region in the game offers a max of 10 challenge tokens, totalling 50. You will require 46 challenge tokens to buy all the skills available as many only have a $ cost. Personally I never used the drone at all during my entire game time, because not purchasing the last three upgrades for the drone saves you five tokens. In the mask's skill tree, you may choose not to purchase three of the most expensive upgrades which will save you nine challenge tokens.

    This means that you can spend 38 challenge tokens buying 57 skills upgrades and ignoring the final upgrades in the mask's skill tree or ignore the final upgrade in the drone's skill tree and purchase either one of the final upgrades in the mask's tree - which i would recommend, as the X-Ray vision upgrade for the mask is worth having. OC this is just one option that suits my style of play, and you will ultimately choose to upgrade the skills that you like to suit your own style but there is some room for manoeuvre when buying skills. See below for more details. Simply upgrade one, twenty eight and fifty seven skill(s) for each individual trophy to pop.

    Currently (as of patch 1.08) there is an exploit that allows you to purchase skills/upgrades and items and get all your tokens back by immediately backing out of the game to the XMB and closing, then restarting the game and still retain all your tokens and currency while keeping the upgrades you purchased. Provided that you obtain at least three challenge tokens and a few $100,000 you can buy every upgrade and weapon available in the game using this method. See the thread by Poetic_Justice_: LINK for more details on this glitch. Credit to Gteschuh for discovering this exploit.

    The glitch enables you to get this trophy out of the way quickly but as the token award system is now fixed you should be able to get this when you have accumulated enough currency and tokens from completing missions, bounties and challenges through normal play.

    You will have to complete 24 challenges in any case, which award you with between one and three tokens per challenge. Progress towards this trophy seems to track across various playthroughs so if you don't have enough tokens/$ for 57 skills, you can use the glitch or buy 50 in one playthrough, backup your data to either the PS Plus Save File Cloud or a USB Drive then start a new game and buy 7 more for it to pop.

  • Unlock 10 Sniper Rifles

    There are a total of ten sniper rifles in the game which can be purchased in the Loadout menu for currency and contract tokens. I personally left this till the very end of the game – utilising only the Sturm and the standard sniper rifle through my first two playthroughs. I also did this in conjunction with Virtuoso so as to easily keep track of which weapons I had used. You may choose to buy a new rifle when you can afford one and use it for an entire mission, the downside to this is that some are more practical than others.

  • Unlock 7 Sidearms

    There are seven sidearms in the game all of which can be purchased in the loaudout menu for $ and tokens. Personally I only ever used the standard pistol. Go: Contracts => Loadout and select the Pistol menu. You can save $ and get this trophy out of the way early by buying all the pistols, then closing the game from the XMB menu after the trophy has popped. When you reload the game you will have all the pistols available in your Loadout and retain all the $ you spent buying them.

    You don't have to physically use the pistols, since the trophy only requires that you purchase them all.

  • Unlock 14 Gadgets

    There are 16 gadgets in the game all of which can be purchased for $ and tokens. I bought gadgets as I progressed as you are required to use certain gadgets to perform certain challenge requirements in the game such as Flash grenades, EMP grenades, smoke mines etc. The Gadget menu can be accessed from the Contracts => Loadout menu.

    You can save $ and get this trophy out of the way early by buying all the gadgets and then closing the game from the XMB menu once the trophy has popped. When you reload the game you will have all the gadgets available in your Loadout and retain all the $ you spent buying them.

    You do not have to physically use the gadgets, because the trophy just requires you purchase them all. I personally never used the drone but there is a trophy tied to using the Remote Sniper Turret and some challenges tied to using various gadgets so you will be buying many of them as a matter of course.

  • Complete first Contract

    This will be awarded when you have completed your first contract in ALTAI MOUNTAINS Region.

  • Complete 13 Contracts

    This will be awarded when you have completed 13 contracts and will pop during the Beketov Valley region.

  • Complete 24 Contracts

    Contracts are the in games main mission objectives in each region. There are between 4 - 6 contracts per region (not including bounties and challenges that are separate). This trophy will pop once you have completed 24 contracts, which will happen during the final mission.

  • Complete first Challenge

    See Trial by Blood for more information.

  • Complete 13 of Challenges

    See Trial by Blood for more information.

  • Complete 24 Challenges

    Challenges are in game optional tasks that reward you tokens for completing them. They range from killing X enemies in a certain way to completing a particular region using only melee attacks or without raising alarms. Challenges are mission specific and this trophy will be the one that you spend most time on. There are 30 challenges spread out across the five regions so you can afford to miss the toughest ones and focus on the easier ones. You will also need to purchase and equip items from the gadgets menu such as flash grenades, EMP ammunition/grenades and gas mines etc. to fulfil some challenges.

    Many challenges are relatively simple and can be gotten easily when you are aiming for them. Some missions have challenges that contradict each other e.g. the one in the Bekatov Valley region that requires the main targets to be killed from a distance for one challenge and one main target to be interrogated for another. Due to this, you will need to play some missions more than once to get all the relevant challenges for that area. Once you complete 24 of the available 30 challenges the trophy will pop.

    The trophy will either pop mid-mission after you have completed your 24th challenge or at the very end of the mission if the final challenge is to complete all contracts in a time limit or another entire-mission challenge. Mine popped when I finished the mission completing all objectives within 25 minutes.

  • Complete first Bounty

    See Assassin for more details.

  • Complete 5 of the Bounties

    See Assassin for more details.

  • Complete 9 of the Bounties

    Bounties will become available once you are playing each mission. You will get a notification when a bounty is nearby. There are two bounties per mission and they will be marked on you map. Simply go to the area where the bounty is, eliminate the target, loot their body and escape the area to complete the bounty. You will be rewarded handsomely. There are 10 bounties to complete so you can afford to miss one.

    If you leave an area without completing the bounty, you can still attain it when you next restart the level so none are missable. There will also be other snipers who are seeking the bounty too – they will often be spotted in high spots overlooking the area where the bounty is. Personally I never had a bounty taken out by them but there is a potential to lose a bounty if you take your time in taking them out. These 'rival' snipers can be taken out too – an upgraded mask allows you to see their line of sight by scouting the area and find their camping spots easily.

  • Unlock 5 Regions

    Story related and can not be missed.

    This will unlock when you complete the final mission for the first time.

  • Find the first collectible

    See The Whole Picture for more details.

  • Find 7 of collectibles

    See The Whole Picture for more details.

  • Find 14 collectibles

    Collectables will be marked on your map, which is accessed via the .

    One or two are difficult to find but most are relatively easy to spot, because they can be highlighted by using your mask's scope ability to scan the area around you when you are near to them (they will highlight orange on your screen). Once collected it remains collected, even if you are killed before the next checkpoint.

  • Kill enemy from each sniper rifle

    There are 10 sniper rifles (including the standard starting rifle) and you will be required to get a kill with each of them. You can choose to do this by purchasing a sniper rifle and using it for an entire level or save it till the end.

    If you save this trophy till the end, you are best to kill a main objective and then exfil to save the kill data. The best location to get an easy kill is in Kolchak harbour where you can quickly kill the main objective Leonid Nizhlev and exfil to save your progress safely. Nizhlev can be found by going to the North East fast travel point and heading down the road to the ship where he patrols. He can easily be killed from the bank and from there you can escape back up the road to the exfil point. Once you have killed him, you can exfil, quit to the main menu, go to loadouts and buy another rifle.

    Rinse and repeat.

  • Kill 3 Enemies with 1 bullet

    This is simpler than it sounds and you can use explosive rounds to kill three enemies at once. I did this in the Kolchak harbour from just beyond the North East fast travel point. From the fast travel point, go up the road slightly and then use the stairs on the right to move out of view of the soldiers that patrol in the tunnel. There is a checkpoint here where the game autosaves in the snow after the platform you climb to. Take a high calibre rifle with explosive rounds and look down the bridge toward a group of enemies walking in front of an armoured vehicle convoy towards you. Take aim at the ground in-between the enemies when they are at a favoured distance and fire an explosive round into the ground close to the enemies. You should get three kills very easily. If you miss, you can restart checkpoint until you get three kills.

    To change ammunition type, open the weapons wheel with and highlight your sniper rifle. Hit to scroll through the types of ammunition and hold over the selected ammo type. When you come out of the weapon wheel, you will reload your rifle with the selected ammunition.

    See the video below for a better description:

  • Kill an Enemy from a 500 meters distance.

    There are a few places where this can be done. From the same spot as the Efficient trophy, on the very first time you play this region there will be a bounty to the West of the North East fast travel point and a 'rival' sniper overlooking the area from atop of some containers on a ship further out to sea. If you go up onto the platform to the right of the fast travel spawn the 'rival' will be 500m distant, you can go prone here and snipe him from the required distance for the trophy. If you miss him then you can restart checkpoint and try again. If you complete the bounty before getting this rival sniper, then the sniper will not be there when you revisit the map.

    Alternatively there is a spot in Sibirskaya-7 Junction where you can snipe an enemy who is patrolling on the dam from 530m distance. Take a high calibre sniper rifle with Darpa rounds for accuracy and this is much simpler than it may first seem.

    See the video below for a visual guide to the second method:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7_4mY4FYc4

  • Kill 80 enemies in single mission

    You will likely get this in the first mission region if you are actively killing all enemies.

  • Kill enemy from zip line

    This is another one that is simpler than it sounds.

    The ideal spot to do this is in the Kolchak harbour region, from just beyond the North East fast travel point as there are two enemies about 2/3 of the way along the bridge who stand right underneath a zipline. From the fast travel point, go up the road slightly and then use the steps on the right to move out of view of the soldiers that patrol in the tunnel. There is a checkpoint here where the game autosaves in the snow after the platform you climb to. If you have upgraded your skill tree with ‘wraith’ and camouflage you will be able to move without being easily spotted as you sprint across the bridge but take care as there is a sniper high in the tower that is slightly to the right ahead of you who can spot you.

    Run along the right side of the bridge, staying on top for most of the way until you reach the zipline, slow as you get to it so as not to alert the enemies you are aiming for, then hit once you get to the zipline and when you are above the enemies – you will have on-screen prompts for both. If you do it correctly you will go into a cut scene where you drop down to kill one of the two enemies when you are above them.

    If you are fast (and once you have bought the chain-kill skill) you will be able to get an easy chain kill on the second enemy here by pushing your analogue stick in the enemies direction when you are prompted by a QTE like on-screen direction. The mission has a challenge to kill 5 enemies with chain-kills but this is a very good and easy one to get. The video below shows how to get a chain-kill.

    If you fail to get the kill, just restart checkpoint and you will be back in the snowy area at the start of the bridge to try again.

    See the video below for a visual description:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_knaaSwV4Yk&t=1s

  • Interrogate an Officer

    In the first region, ALTAI MOUNTAINS, there is a challenge to interrogate 3 officers and if you haven't got this trophy before you attempt that challenge here is the place to do it. Officers will be highlighted with a white diamond shape above them when you view them with your binoculars . Once you have designated an officer, simply approach him with caution from behind and hit to interrogate him. Having the 'wraith' and upgraded cammo will help you remain harder to detect when you are doing this. If you fail, or are spotted, restart checkpoint to reset enemies paths and try again.

    Here is a video guide to highlight and interrogate an officer in the ALTAI MOUNTAINS region at the second objective:

Secret trophies

  • Eliminate Main Target with Remote Sniper Turret

    token and can be placed on the ground near to enemies who you can designate as targets by marking them with while using your binoculars . Once the target is marked, use to instruct the Remote Sniper turret to fire on the target.

    This trophy can be most easily attained by killing Leonid Nizhlev in Kolchak Harbor. Go to the North East fast travel point and go down the road toward the ship where Nizhlev patrols. You may need to take care of the two enemies who patrol the boat closest to you (one will come out from the container you will go into to gain access to the ship) and there will be two enemies to your left.

    Once you enter the crate, make your way onto the boat and head left. If you have upgraded your mask’s scope ability, using allows you to see enemies as an X-Ray when they are in your nearby area. You will soon come across another open crate ahead, Leonid Nizhlev will stop on the other side of this crate and stand for a moment before he goes away again on his patrol. Once he has left the area set up the turret on top of any of the containers in this area so that it can overlook where Leonid Nizhlev stands. When he returns he will notice the turret and go to investigate it, use this time to mark him with your binoculars ( and mark with ) and then press for a simple kill. You can utilise the Remote Sniper Turret on any main enemy but Leonid Nizhlev is the easiest to do.

    Here is a video guide for getting the achievement:

  • Eliminate Main Target when in the vechicle with the Mine

    To the best of my knowledge this can only be accomplished in Beketov Valley region by killing Agvan G. Dorzhiev as he is arriving at Petroshenko's mansion complex in his vehicle. AT Mines should be purchased from your loadouts menu and placed into your loadout before you start the mission. Go to the church area where you can snipe Petroshenko from and make your way down the hillside toward the lake. Take great care not to highlight or alert any of the enemies in and around Petroshenko's mansion or you will trigger Dorzhiev's approach (there is an onscreen counter letting you know how far away he is once the meeting has been triggered).

    Once you get to the water, swim across the lake toward the left side of the mansion where you will climb up and head into the complex. As you approach the stairs there may be an enemy in the small courtyard ahead and a camera overlooking the area, take these out as silently as you can and go into the area, then immediately leave to the left through the hole in the wall. Dorzhiev’s approach should trigger at this point but if it triggered earlier, you can just restart checkpoint to reset everything.

    Now, go right hugging the wall and stay low till you get to the road – there are two enemies to your left and a turret and a camera to your right so you will need to stay low and out of sight. Having the 'wraith' and cammo skills help you remain undetected here. You can reload checkpoint at any time if you are spotted, as this will cause Dorzhiev to abandon his meeting with Petroshenko. Once you are in the road, carefully lay your mines across the tracks and then retreat back into the forest, staying as low as you can to avoid attention. Dorzhiev's vehicle will arrive soon after and trigger one of the mines, destroying it and killing its occupant – the trophy will pop as soon as he is dead.

    Eliminate Main Target with Death from above

    The Death From Above ability allows you to kill an enemy by dropping on them from above.

    This is another trophy that can be most easily attained by killing Leonid Nizhlev in Kolchak Harbor. Go to the North East fast travel point and go down the road toward the ship where Nizhlev patrols. You may need to take care of the two enemies who patrol the boat closest to you (one will come out from the container that you will use to gain access to the ship) and there are two enemies to your left. Once you enter the crate, make your way onto the boat and head left. If you have upgraded your mask’s scope ability, using allows you to see enemies as an xray when they are in your nearby area. You will soon come across another open crate ahead, Leonid Nizhlev will stop on the other side of this crate and stand for a moment before he goes away again on his patrol. Once he has left the area climb up on top of the open containers in this area so that you are overlooking where Leonid Nizhlev stands. When he returns simply drop down onto him for a Death from Above kill. You can utilise the Death From Above skill on any main enemy that you can get above but Leonid Nizhlev is the easiest to do.

  • Exfiltrate in under 1 minute after killing Igor Sekhov

    Killing Sekhov and exfiltrating in under a minute will require you to do quite a bit of work to clear out the area first.

    I’d advise clearing out the bridge (where you got “Freerunner”) first – taking care of all the enemies on the bridge and the two turrets at the far end from where you start. There is a skill you can purchase that enables you to disable turrets by pressing when you are behind them. Turrets can be destroyed by shooting them or using grenades on them if you do not have the skill unlocked. There will be some enemies below the bridge too.

    Up high in the tower to the right side of and overlooking the bridge is a sniper, he will need to be killed, then you can utilise the ladder that leads up to his camping spot. Inside the tower from where you enter are four enemies who patrol who can be taken care of silently. From where you enter the tower at the snipers nest go up two flights of stairs and go outside there will be another sniper there who will need to be killed and a camera to disable.

    There will also be two more enemies in the tower further down the steps, so take care to find them and make sure they are out of the picture too. You may also wish to mine the doorway at the bottom of the tower too. Back on top of the tower, you will notice two ziplines: One that goes down toward the helipad and another on the left that goes down to an area where a heavy is a patrolling. As you look down to the area where the heavy is patrolling, there is a tower ahead with a watchman and a sniper in, as well as two snipers in the harbour further away, one is high on the building just to the right of the smaller tower as you look at it and another camped on some stairs overlooking the area 2/3 of the way along the harbour side further to the right – all these need to be killed to make this trophy easier.

    After they are all dead, use the zipline to get down to where the heavy was and get yourself into the sniper tower that is directly in-front of where Sekhov's office is. He will be about 250m away and you should be able to snipe him from here easily. Having a high powered rifle with a 24x scope on is recommended, as is either explosive rounds for a wide effect range or Darpa rounds for accuracy.

    Once you are happy the area is clear and you are on top of either tower, quit to the game's main menu then exit the game. Backup your save file to the PS Plus Save File Cloud or a USB Drive in case you don't get the trophy, then reload the game and press continue from the main menu. You should be back on top of whichever tower you were on when you quit out but personally I found the left most tower preferable for me as it gives a better line of sight. Now line up your shot and take him out when you are happy you can get him. Sometimes he will come out of his office, other times he will stay in there and just be in shot. Once he is dead immediately run back across the area you came from – you will have just enough time to get to the exfil if you are fast. You can jump off the left tower onto the steps and you can jump over the barrier on your way to the exfil.

    I tried this many times from the higher tower on the right, using the zipline and missed out on getting the trophy but I did it first time from the tower on the left, even though it took me longer to run the distance!

    To escape the area you can use the tunnel, or the small opening on the left that leads out toward the boats, drop down carefully – as the drop can kill you if you are running too fast. Head out across the under bridge area to the exfil, by either jumping onto and running over the boats or across the ice and the trophy should pop if you did it in under one minute. If the trophy doesn't pop, quit out, reload your saved file to your PS4 and continue - you can not restart checkpoint as the checkpoint is the exfil.

    Here is a video of when I got the trophy showing the route to take to the exfil point. I timed it and it was as near to a minute as it could be, yet on my other (failed) runs I managed to exfil in less than 50 seconds without the trophy popping:

  • Eliminate Main Target with The Chain kill

    Chain kill is a skill that can be unlocked from the skills menu and allows you to quickly kill a second, nearby enemy when you melee kill a first with a QTE type/on-screen direction prompt. This trophy can be most easily attained by killing Leonid Nizhlev in Kolchak Harbor.

    Go to the North East fast travel point and go down the road toward the ship where Nizhlev patrols. You may need to take care of the two enemies who patrol the boat closest to you (one will come out from the container that you will use to gain access to the ship) and there are two enemies to your left. Once you enter the crate, make your way onto the boat and observe the area using your scope ability. If you have upgraded your mask’s scope ability, using allows you to see enemies as an xray when they are in your nearby area. Wait here in this first open container and you should see Nizhlev standing just a short way ahead of you on the left - he will be standing near another open container. Continue to wait until a second soldier walks into the area and comes to stand near to where Nizhlev is. You will want to immediately go toward them and alert them - they will fire at you and move closer to each other.

    Once the two soldiers are standing together, you will want to melee the soldier first, then follow the QTE prompt to quickly take Nizhlev down as well. A Chain kill is best done with both soldiers in line of sight, preferably one behind the other. Use Melee to kill the first soldier, then immediately push the toward the second enemy to chain kill them. It's a bit finicky and you may miss your first or second chance. If done correctly the trophy will pop as soon as he is dead. If you fail to take him out with a Chain kill, don't him but instead quickly reload checkpoint and you will be back at the fast travel.

    There is a challenge for taking out five enemies with Chain kills, using this one is not vital if you are going for that challenge but it is one of six or seven relatively simple Chain kills in the level and makes the challenge a little easier if you wish to go for it.

    Here is a video guide to getting the trophy and performing Chain kill:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZYZZFvgcRE

    Alternatively, you can make your way over the containers and wait in an open container near to a fire barrel on the second ship. Nizhlev will stand next to this barrel and a second soldier will come to stand with him. Again, you will want to line the soldier and Nizhlev up, melee the soldier and Chain kill the main target.

    Here is a video guide to the second method:
