Trophy Breakdown: 14 12 5 1


Introduction:
Welcome to our latest Trophy Guide, this time we decided to make one for the amazing Sniper: Ghost Warrior game. An updated version of the game released on Xbox last year, the game has been optimised to be more sniper centric. With realistic bullet drop, alert enemies and maps filled with sniper spots, the game gives a decent sniper experience through both campaign and multiplayer. And as a bonus, there is an additional 'Unfinished Business' campaign and challenge map to complete. This guide should help you on your way to the Platinum Trophy.

Please, feel free to post any tips and/or additions to the guide and we will happily give you credit for any help.


Step 1: Complete the Ghost Warrior Campaign on Hard and collect all 30 Secrets.

During this step you will pick up the majority of the game's trophies. Hard is not that hard at all. The key is to take your time, and pick your way through the levels one enemy at a time. Remain hidden whenever possible, and make good use of your medical syringe and enemy awareness bar. For more info and tips, see General. Also, try to get Fallen Eagle as soon as possible as this trophy is apparently glitched for some people. (See the guide for more information).

In this playthrough, try to pick up all the 30 secrets to get them out of the way. There is a complete written and video guide to each secret in the guide below.


Step 2: Complete the 'Unfinished Business' Campaign and the Challenge mission 'The Last Hunt'

'Unfinished Business' can be completed on Easy difficulty, and the 'The Last Hunt' mission has no difficulty to chose from. Those two campaigns weren't available in the original instalment in the XBOX 360 & PC version of the game. They were made exclusively for the PS3 version. Both campaigns are pretty short compared to the main campaign. Each mission has a trophy connected to it. Unfortunately, most of them appear to be glitched for a lot of people. Check the trophy guide for more information on how to complete and unglitch each of the trophies.


Step 3: Go online and work on the Multiplayer trophies

The online part of the game is the longest and most tedious to complete. Your main goal is to work towards your 2000 kills and 50 online wins. You have to kill at least 500 people with a sniper rifle and 250 with a pistol. And only Ranked Kills count, so make sure you are in the right game type. Boosting speeds this up considerably, but you will need 4+ people working together to do it properly. Head to the boosting thread to get some partners: LINK.

Also, you have to capture a total of 50 flags in Capture the Flag matches. Luckily, you can get this offline by yourself. See the guide for more details.


Step 4: Clean up any trophies that you might have missed

Did any of the trophies glitch on you? Fallen Eagle, 10 shots, No Alarm and Unnoticed are all prone to glitching on people. Now it is time to sort those out. Deleting your game saves should give you a second chance to get them, and should help you to solve the problem. Read the individual entries for each trophy for further information.


Step 5: Be proud to own the Platinum!

Yes, now you got the Bragging Rights! Tell all your friends how awesome you are.

    You will unlock this trophy at the same time as Rookie, Captain and/or General, as Act IV is the last act of the game.

  • Finish the game on Easy difficulty.

    This trophy is story related and therefore it cannot be missed. The trophies for the different difficulty levels stack in this game. I recommend going straight in on Hard to get them all in one playthrough. It’s not that difficult, and will save a lot of time.

    For more information, see General.

  • Finish the game on Normal difficulty.

    The trophies for the different difficulty levels stack in this game. I recommend going straight in on Hard to get them all in one playthrough. It’s not that difficult, and will save a lot of time.

    For more information, see General.

  • Finish the game on Hard difficulty.

    The trophies for the different difficulty levels stack in this game. Because of this, it is recommended to go straight into Hard to get them all in one playthrough. It’s not that difficult, and will save a lot of time. The single player campaign can be easily beaten in around 6 or 7 hours.

    After finishing the game on Hard difficulty, you will receive Act IV, Rookie, Captain and General all at the same time.

    Certain sections may prove to be difficult, but in general it’s easy going enough. Here are some tips on beating the game on Hard difficulty:

    • DO NOT RUN – Walk and crawl. Take your time. This is not the game to go Running and Gunning in. It only takes a few shots to put you down, and the AI can shoot pretty well. Divide the levels into small areas, and clear as you go.
    • KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN – Your default stance should be crouched. The AI can spot you from miles away, so keep your head down. Crawl when necessary, and stick to cover.
    • ONLY KILL ENEMIES IN YOUR WAY – Enemies often have sightlines to each other. So killing a random guy in the distance may alert 5 more that you are there.
    • STAY HEALTHY - Heal yourself immediately after being shot by an enemy.
    • ALLOW FOR GRAVITY - Bullets drop over distance. This ain't Call of Duty! Aim above your target is far away to hit it correctly.
    • HEADSHOTS – Silence is your friend. And an enemy who is shot in the head is not going to set off any type of warning. The sure fire suppression method.
    • WATCH THE BAR – Always keep one eye on the status bar. But moving slowly and watching the bar, you can use it to judge the quality of your cover. White is good, red is bad and an empty bar is best.
  • Finish the 'The last hunt' mission.

    “The Last Hunt” is a level that you can find in the Challenge campaign. There are limitations on gameplay in this mode: you don't have any HUD or radar, enemies do more damage, there are only a few checkpoints, no restart from checkpoint option and if you quit to main menu, you will have to restart the whole mission over. Saying all that though, its not that hard to complete. Take your time to sneak past the enemies. If you want, you can combine getting this trophy and the 10 shots trophy.

    See 10 Shots below for more information.

  • Kill 250 people using pistol. (Multiplayer)

    For this trophy you have to kill a total of 250 people with a pistol in the game's Multiplayer mode. Pistols are the main close range weapons in the online mode, so you should get this trophy while going for the 2000 online kills. Remember that only Ranked Kills count towards the total.

    See Supplier of Death.

    Note: the Pistol kill stat bar can sometimes glitch, and not record kills. To stop this happening, always start with a few rifle kills. Then swith to the pistol. For some reason, the stats don't like continuous pistol kills alone.

  • Kill 10 eagles.

    Warning! This trophy is currently glitched for some.

    You will come across eagles flying in the sky in many of the chapters. Simply kill 10 of them to unlock this trophy. I recommend you to try to kill ten eagles in the tutorial chapter during the sniper section, or very early in the game because there is a chance that this trophy will be ticked off as done in the statistics even though you haven't unlocked it yet.

    To de-glitch the trophy, delete the savegame and start again. The saves are copy protected, so you cannot make a back up prior to deleting them unless you have access to the PSN Plus Cloud saving.

  • Kill all the enemy snipers in 'Appearances can be deceiving' in less than four minutes.

    “Appearances can be deceiving” is the first mission in the 'Unfinished Business' campaign. At the end of this mission you will be asked to kill the snipers on the building in the area below you. The time starts after the dummie sniper is taken out. Stay zoomed out and look for the flashes of the sun reflecting on their scopes. They will all appear high up on top of a structure. You have plenty of time, so do not rush. Below is a list of all 8 snipers and their positions:

    01. Left building, on roof, right side.
    02. Centre low, on top of the yellow fuel tanks.
    03. On a balcony, near the top of the left red and white chimney stack.
    04. Main building roof, left side, behind the AC unit.
    05. Main building roof, right side, in front of middle chimney stack.
    06. Main building roof, right side, on the balcony, behind the power pylon.
    07. Right building roof, behind AC unit.
    08. Left building rear, behind the power pylon.

    Take all of them out in less then 4 minutes and the trophy will be yours.

  • Finish the 'The last hunt' mission having fired no more than 10 shots.

    Warning! This trophy seems to be glitched for some at the moment.

    “The Last Hunt” is found in the challenge campaign. You have to finish the whole mission without firing more than 10 shots. Knifing enemies doesn't count as a shot. This is by far one of the hardest trophies in the game. Take your time to avoid enemies or try to knife them if you really need to kill them. Some people think that shots count up still even if you die. That might be the source of this trophy glitch. Below is a video walking you through the mission:

  • Kill 10 enemies with throwing knives.

    For this trophy you have to get a total of 10 kills with the throwing knives. Equip them by pressing . Throwing knives will normally cause instant death to enemies and can be picked up again from the enemy's corpse. The kills will accumulate even if you die before reaching a checkpoint. There are plenty of opportunities to get kills this way, so this shouldn't be a problem.

  • Kill a total of 30 enemies with Browning gun.

    For this trophy you have to get a total of 30 kills with the Browning gun. The Browing gun is a mounted turret that is found in a few of the chapters. You should be able to unlock the trophy by the end of your first playthrough. If you haven't unlocked it by then, I'd recommend you to replay Mission 7 - A Simple Rendezvous. There is a section where you have to hold a position until the chopper arives.

    Note: kills using the machine gun mounted on the jeep during the on rails section also count.

  • Kill 250 people using sniper rifle. (Multiplayer)

    For this trophy you have to kill a total of 250 people with a sniper rifle in the game's Multiplayer mode. Sniper rifles are the main weapons in the online mode, so you should get this trophy while going for the 2000 online kills. Remember that only Ranked Kills count towards the total.

  • Capture 50 flags from the enemy camp. (Multiplayer)

    Simply capture a total of 50 flags in Capture the Flag games. This has of course to be done in a multiplayer game.

    This trophy can be easily boosted on your own. When you enter the multiplayer menu, you should get the option to enter via either an Online or LAN network. Set up a LAN Capture the Flag match, and set the win condition to be 1st to reach 50 flag captures. The trophy should pop at the end of the match. These games will not count towards your overall online wins, but at least you can concentrate on getting kills from then on.

    Set the Minimum Players setting to 1, the Reward Limit to 50 and the time to 1:30:00.

  • Win 50 rounds playing online. (Multiplayer)

    Simply win 50 rounds in Multiplayer online. This might take a while, but you should be able to achieve this trophy before you get your 2000 kills trophy.

    See Supplier of Death.

  • Kill 2 enemies with one grenade.

    This trophy has to be done in Singleplayer. Simply kill 2 enemies with the same grenade. As this game doesn't feature the option to cook grenades, you need a little luck and skill for this. But enemies do not normally run out of cover if you throw a grenade at them, so it really isn't too hard to achieve.

    Enemies often walk around or stand close together, so there is no shortage of opportunities to get this trophy. My personal favourite spot is at the beginning of Mission 7 - A Simple Rendezvous. At the start, there are two guards walking away from you. Take them out with a single grenade and its job done.

    If for some reason it doesn’t come off, you can just reload the checkpoint to try again.

    Another good spot is at the beginning of Mission 8 – Steal From Under Their Noses. The two guards at the bridge are an easy double kill. Also, you can go for this in Mission 2 – No Man Left Behind, at the same spot where I recommend going for the double rifle kill. See One Shot, Two Kills.

  • Kill 2 enemies with one shot.

    You have to kill 2 enemies with a single bullet to unlock this trophy. A lot of times, mainly in the stealth sections of the game, you will encounter 2 or more enemies near each other while they are talking to each other. Try to hit both with a single bullet. Normally the game will go into a Bullet Cam replay, and then the trophy should unlock. It took me 3 tries to unlock this trophy, so it might be “glitched” as well.

    My favourite spot to get this is in Mission 2 – No Man Left Behind. After passing through the stone arch, you will be told that if you can get to the truck, you can avoid entering the village. At this point, go to the left side of the roadway. Make your way along the bank towards the checkpoint. Avoid contact with the first patrolling guard on the roadway. As you get near the truck, there will be a single guard standing near the fence. Take him out with a throwing knife. Do not go to the truck. Instead follow along the bank to the end. There is a rock besdie the fence. If you stand on it and look to your right along the road, you can line up three soldiers in your sights at once. Since you only need two, your chances are increased.

    Use your focus, and aim for a multiple headshot. You should have no problem getting two of them together. If it doesn’t work out, just reload from the last checkpoint and repeat.

    Another good spot is at the beginning of Mission 8 – Steal From Under Their Noses. The two guards at the bridge are an easy double kill.

  • Collect all secrets.

    There are 30 Secrets scattered across the levels of the Single Player Campaign. They are laptop computers with orange screens. Once picked up, they are immediately added to your gamesave, and will not reappear in the world. If you miss one for any reason, you can use the Chapter Select to go back and pick it up. Make sure to keep track of the level though, as there is nowhere in the game menu’s to see which levels are cleared of secrets.

    Warning: The secrets are not all in the same spots as in the original Xbox 360 version of the game. For the PS3, one of the original missions has been omitted, and several secrets have been moved. Using an Xbox guide or video will only get you so far.

    For a full written guide to each secret location, see the Seeker Guide in the next post: LINK.

  • Kill 500 people using sniper rifle. (Multiplayer)

    For this trophy you have to kill a total of 500 people with a sniper rifle in the game's Multiplayer mode. Sniper rifles are the main weapons in the online mode, so you should get this trophy while going for the 2000 online kills. Remember that only Ranked Kills count towards the total.

  • Deliver 50 headshots.

    This trophy has to be done in Singleplayer. Keep aiming for the enemies heads, as headshots give you instant kills. You should definitely be able get this trophy after the first few chapters of the Ghost Warrior campaign.

    See Sniper Master for more information.

  • Deliver 100 headshots.

    This trophy has to be done in Singleplayer. Keep aiming for the head, as headshots mean instant kills. You should be able to get this trophy about halfway through the Ghost Warrior campaign. But make sure to get into the habit of going for headshots from the start. Concentration Mode is the key to pulling these off fairly regularly. To enter Concentration Mode, aim through your sniper scope and click and hold the left stick. This has three main effects:

    01. You stop breathing, steadying your aim and lowering your heart rate.
    02. Time slows down, giving you time to place shots more accurately.
    03. Enemies become highlighted in a blue halo effect, making them easy to spot.

    This should be your go-to move, and you will be required to use it hundreds of times. Remember, every chance you get, go for the headshot.

  • Kill 2000 enemies. (Multiplayer)

    This is probably the longest trophy in the whole game. Kill a total of 2000 enemies in the online mode to unlock this shiny gold trophy. You will probably have unlocked every other online trophy by the time you have your 2000 kills together.

    BOOST METHOD:

    To boost kills properly, you will need a group of 4 people working together. Have the host set up a CTF match in Ruins, 20 minutes long. The other 3 then find him using custom match. If you want to keep the teams the same every match, note that the last of the 3 to join will end up on the hosts team.

    The idea is to exploit spawn kills, where each man gets 10 minutes of killing time. At the start, one player from each team goes to the enemy base, the other stays behind. Look at the rough map below:


    There is a small pile of blue crates in each base. The shooter stands on it. The victim stands in the corner shown by the spot on the map. The shooter can then kill at will. The victim will keep spawning in the same spot. At the ten minute mark, each team switches shooter and victim. This way all four players get around 70 kills per match.

    To pick up a win, simply bring back the flag during the halfway switch. This should be shared, alternating each match.

  • Kill the escaping drug baron in 'Better late than never' mission.

    At the end of the “Better late than never” mission in the 'Unfinished Business' campaign you will be asked to kill the Hesus Santana. Next to him are 2 drug barons. After you killed the first one, the second baron will try to escape. Kill him to unlock this trophy.

  • Kill all enemies attacking your pontoon from the riverside on 'Weaken The Regime' level.

    This trophy is based on the start of Mission 5 – Weaken the Regime. You start this level in the boat, and this trophy covers that first stretch of river. Enemies will appear on either bank, and you have to kill every single one of them. This is not actually that hard once you know which direction they are coming from. The following directions are based on Easy difficulty:

    Group 1: Left Bank – 3 Enemies: There will be two guards on the stilted platform, near to some handy exploding barrels. Make sure to get the third man, who will be on the riverbank to the left of that platform.

    Group 2: Right Bank – 3 Enemies: Two guards will run out onto the jetty. Again, make sure to get the third man, who will be back on the riverbank to the right of the first two soldiers.

    Group 3: Left Bank – 2 Enemies: These two will appear on the left riverbank in plain sight.

    Take your time, and make sure to use Concentration Mode to ease your way through. If the trophy does not pop before you hide from the choppers, you have probably missed someone. Reload the Mission and try again.

  • Shoot an enemy through a wall.

    This is an easy trophy. As soon as you see that an enemy is hiding behind a wooden wall, try to shoot him with you sniper rifle. You have to kill a soldier by firing through the structure. You should get several opportunities to get this by playing normally. But the easiest early place to get this is in the very first level.

    After you repel down into the refinery, soldiers will spawn on the far side of the map. There is also a guard tower over there. Take out all the others first, before going for the guy in the tower. There is a nice spot under some storage tanks on the way there that sets you up nicely for the shot. Make sure to aim at the side wall of the tower, and try to hit the guard as high up as you can. Two or three shots to the body should be enough to do the job. Or if you can manage it, a single headshot will work.

  • Finish the 'Under cover of night' mission without having the guards raise an alarm.

    Warning! This trophy is currently glitched for some people.

    “Under cover of night” is the second mission of the Unfinished Business campaign. You have to get through the mission without having the guards spot you and raise an alarm. Follow the checkpoint markers through the level. Take out the soldiers that you can't sneak past, and reload your last checkpoint if you get spotted. Some people (including me) can't get this trophy to unlock, even though they did everything perfectly right. The only solution to the problem at the moment is to delete your game saves and try again.

  • Stealthily enter the manor in 'Better late than never' mission.

    Warning! This trophy is currently glitched for some people.

    “Better late than never” is the third and last mission of the Unfinished Business campaign. You have to enter the manor without being spotted by the guards, so sneak past them or take them out stealthily. Some people (including me) have difficulties unlocking this trophy, and again, the only solution found so far is to delete your game saves and try again.

    Here is a good video on how to get through the level, found by MIKEYJOHNP:

    NOTE: When I got this trophy, I did a few things differently:

    01. Don't rush. Everytime you stand or run, you may get noticed.
    02. In the second camp, I did not go across to the checkpoint. I followed the video to the building in the centre of the base, and then turned right towards the bridge. Crawling forward, I hid in a bush and took out the two guards in the two towers, as well as the other two pacing guards.
    03. When you reach the end of the first video, you come to the area with the far off sniper. I approached the checkpoint just before this while crawling on the ground. Stay close to a bush, and he should not be able to spot you. This is where the main glitch is supposed to occur.

  • Kill 15 enemy using concentration mode.

    This one should come naturally within the first level or two. You can enter concentration mode by pressing and holding . Concentration mode will not only make headshots a lot easier, it stabilizes your gun so you can take out enemies more efficiently. It has three main effects:

    01. You stop breathing, steadying your aim and lowering your heart rate.
    02. Time slows down, giving you time to place shots more accurately.
    03. Enemies become highlighted in a blue halo effect, making them easy to spot.

    You will be finding yourself using this a lot during the campaign, so there will be no way that you will miss out on this trophy. This should be your go-to move, and you will be required to use it hundreds of times. So getting 15 will not be a problem.

  • Shoot 5 cable lines using sniper rifles.

    There are a few missions where you will come across telegraph lines. Simply snipe any 5 of the cables to unlock this trophy.

    This can easily be done at the start of Mission 6 – On Your Own. Around the corner from the start point is a stretch of telegraph wires. They are on the left side of the path. Your fire will not attract nearby enemies here, so take your time shooting. Aim for the point where the cables connect to the pole. Use your focus to steady your aim. Once you take out five of the connections, the trophy will pop.
