While 1 playthrough on Hard difficulty is certainly possible, for the sake of making the mission specific trophies easier and more manageable, I recommend 2 playthroughs - 1 on Normal and 1 on Hard - mainly because on Hard difficulty you get fewer Command Points - 4 instead of the maximum of 6 - as well as the introduction of a timer which forces each turn to be completed within 2 minutes.

Besides being able to manually save during each turn, except when playing on Hard difficulty, there is also a very convenient undo mechanic. To undo an action simply press . This is incredibly helpful as it allows you to perform and undo an action until the desired outcome is achieved. Please note that you cannot make use of the undo mechanic after ending a turn. Also, I strongly suggest playing through the tutorial because it gives a much needed explanation on the various game mechanics.



Step 1: Complete the main campaign "Sin of Damnation" on Normal difficulty

Play through the campaign whilst simultaneously going for as many of the mission specific trophies as possible. Some of the mission specific requirements can be a little tricky. However, as each and every mission can be replayed through mission select after being completed once, you can either decide to replay a mission until unlocking a certain mission specific trophy or you can storm through the campaign and return later via mission select.

As for the various miscellaneous trophies, most will unlock through natural gameplay. Just as with the mission specific trophies, you can either decide to get them out of the way as soon as possible or you can go for any remaining via mission select.

Step 2: Complete the main campaign "Sin of Damnation" on Hard difficulty

On this playthrough you should focus solely on completing the main objectives. You now only have a maximum of 4 CPs instead of 6; there is a timer introduced which forces you to complete each turn within 2 minutes; manual saving in a mission is prohibited although the undo mechanic is still available.

Rely heavily on Overwatch and be sure to only spend any remaining CPs when it is safe to do so. On missions where the Librarian is available, make good use of the Force Barrier in order to prevent the Genestealers from flanking. Also, using the Heavy Flamer equipped Terminator as lead unit is tactically sound, especially so when speed is of the essence and you quickly need to advance with minimal delay.

Step 3: Miscellaneous Trophies

For any remaining trophies you might still need, please see the Trophy Guide.

31 trophies ( 15  10  )

  • Having Achieved The Highest Honors in Battle.

  • Kill 30 Genestealers with the assault cannon.

    An Assault Cannon equipped Terminator is first available during Mission 2: Exterminate. If you want to unlock this right away, then simply kill any Genestealers with the aforementioned weapon. Be warned though after reloading the Assault Cannon there is a slight chance it might explode and kill anyone or anything, adjacent to the Terminator. After all ammunition has been spent, restart the mission and repeat the process.

  • Kill 6 Genestealers in one shot with the flamer.

    This is a very situational trophy, becuase getting enough Genestealers to simultaneously occupy a room without the aid of the Librarian and his Force Barrier ability can be tricky. Either attempt this whenever given the opportunity or wait until Mission 11: Unknown Lifeforms.

    In Mission 11, start the mission with the two Storm Bolter equipped Terminators in front; the Heavy Flamer 3rd; the Librarian 4th and lastly the Lightning Claw equipped Terminator in the rear. Now move the two Storm Bolter equipped Terminators into the 1st room and lock down the adjacent corridors using Overwatch, then hold your ground until the Broodlord approaches. Before the Broodlord gets too close, make sure to save the game then proceed to kill it and reload the save if you fail. When the Broodlord is slain, let the Genestealers approach the room and kill the 2 Storm Bolter equipped Terminators. Meanwhile you are doing this, make sure to put up a Force Barrier in front of the Heavy Flamer equipped Terminator. Now all that remain is to continuously put up a Force Barrier until a sufficient number of Genestealers have filled the room. Whilst the Heavy Flamer has an 83% chance of killing a Genestealer there is a possibility that you might not kill all 6 required so if that were to occur, simply press to undo the action then try again until successful.

  • Kill 20 Genestealers with the power sword.

    This trophy can be attempted during Mission 1: Suicide Mission or in any other mission where a Sergeant equipped with a Power Sword is present. Please note that only the Sergeant is equipped with a Power Sword so simply start the mission with the Sergeant in front while using Guard in order to increase the survivability. Now let the Genestealers descend upon him, then restart the mission as many times as required.

  • Survive 15 close combat encounters.

    There is a good chance this will unlock naturally throughout the campaign but if you want to unlock this immediately, simply start Mission 1: Suicide Mission and put every Terminator on Guard with the Heavy Flamer in the rear then finally let the Genestealers attack you. Restart the mission as many times as necessary.

  • Kill 6 Genestealers with one psychic storm.

    The Librarian is the only Terminator that have psychic abilities and is first available during Mission 6: Alarm Call. Just as with Pyroclast, Power of the Warp is also very situational but can easily be done in the same way as Pyroclast during Mission 11. See Pyroclast for further details.

  • Kill 5 Broodlords.

    See Grant us the strength to prevail.

  • Kill 1000 enemies.

    See There is only War!

  • Kill 40 000 enemies.

    Before I explain the procedure to unlock this trophy in the quickest way possible, please note that obtaining this through normal gameplay is equal to an investment of possibly several hundred of hours due to the nature of the game. What you want to do instead is to mass Genestealers into a single room, then flame them and promptly undo the action by pressing over and over again. Kills made prior to undoing an action still count thus meaning the faster you can repeat the process, the faster you will reach the required kill count.

    I suggest you attempt this on Mission 11: Unknown Lifeforms. Start the mission in the same fashion as with Pyroclast, with the only difference being that you want the room adjacent to the starting position to be filled with as many Genestealers as possible so when you target them with the Heavy Flamer, you should have a minimum of 10 Genestealers being targeted. Once you have achieved that then do not flame them but instead save the game, though be sure to avoid saving over this file as it will allow you to get back to the grind immediately in future sessions.

    You are now set to begin the grind but before doing so, I should probably inform you of the time involved. You are looking at ~20 hours of 15 seconds intervals or roughly 4,800 repeats, give or take. It is also worth mentioning that it is very important that you are as quick and efficient as possible while doing this, as the longer you take per interval, the longer it will take. For this very reason I also suggest that you keep track of the time spent so you can get an estimate of how much time you have left.

  • Win close assault against Broodlord.

    This can first be attempted during Mission 11: Unknown Lifeforms. From the starting area, lock down the adjacent corridors and when the Broodlord approaches, have the Librarian step forth and put him on Guard, then save the game. Despite whether the Broodlord or the Librarian dies, load the save and repeat until you have killed the Broodlord five times, as by doing so you will also unlock Slayer of Monsters.

  • Customize your banner.

    From the main menu, select Librarium and then banner configurator. Simply change any of the details available and then press to exit the configurator. Once the game have saved the change, the trophy will unlock.

  • Destroy 20 doors with a Chainfist.

    This can first be attempted during Mission 2: Exterminate. Simply have the Chainfist equipped Terminator move around and destroy doors while the remaining Terminators hold the Genestealers off. Restart the mission until done.

  • Complete a mission without using a single Command Point.

    I recommend this to be attempted during Mission 1: Suicide Mission. Speed is crucial here so have the Heavy Flamer equipped Terminator take the lead with the Sergeant in tow, while the remaining Terminators cover the rear. Since you can't rely on Overwatch as it consumes CPs in the event of a jam, you are forced to allow the Genestealers to approach while it is their turn and manually fire afterwards. Make certain that you save at least 1 shot so you can flame the control room, otherwise you will fail the mission as you are not allowed to run out of fuel. Saving after each turn and relying heavily on the undo mechanic is very helpful here but if you want to make this as effortless as possible, then see Light in the darkness.

  • Unjam a bolter 40 times.

    Unjamming occurs automatically during the A.Is turn whenever a Storm Bolter equipped Terminator is on Overwatch, fires on an approaching Genestealer, jam his weapon and finally unjam it by spending 1 CP. To be able to unjam, you need one spare CP from the previous turn for each and every jam.

  • Have a terminator kill 3 Genestealers in melee during one turn.

    This can be attempted as early as Mission 1: Suicide Mission whilst also going for Sword of Retribution and The Emperor protects. The Sergeant have better odds in melee compared to Power Fist equipped Terminators, however, defeating 3 Genestealers in a row can prove difficult. If you are not having luck on your side then using the Thunder Hammer equipped Terminator in Mission 2: Exterminate instead is much easier, just be sure to put the respective Terminator on Guard and also to save the game prior to the Genestealers attacking in order to save time in case the Terminator gets defeated before the third and last kill.

  • Survive “Suicide Mission” without any casualties.

    Have the Heavy Flamer equipped Terminator in front and advance rapidly. Lock down all corridors using Overwatch and make sure you have a few CPs left in order to deal with any jams. A neat trick is to flame close to a Genestealer starting point because they will spawn and happily move into the fire, killing themselves.

  • Kill 10 Genestealers during one turn in the “Exterminate” mission.

    A somewhat tricky trophy because at least 10 Genestealers must spawn during the end of the first turn, while you at the same time must quickly move all the Terminators into one of the center rooms. Once positioned so you cover the entire room of choice, as well as the adjacent corridors, put everyone on Overwatch when the Genestealers are 1 turn from being able to attack you and then save the game. If done correctly, enough Genestealers should approach you and be killed - the Assault Cannon is key here. Load the save if you do not manage to kill enough Genestealers or restart the mission if necessary.

  • Mission 3 - Pass the C.A.T. between at least three terminators.

    Simply pass the C.A.T. from the beginning of the mission to 2 different Terminators other than the initial carrier and the trophy will unlock.

  • Mission 4 - Cleanse both rooms during the same turn.

    For this I recommend that you save 2 shots for the Heavy Flamer so you can complete the objective. Utilize the Assault Cannon liberally to help lock down corridors more easily. Advance rapidly but with care, all the while protecting the flanks. When you have advanced to the point of being at the designated targets, use the Heavy Flamer to bathe the two rooms in fire but make sure you have opened both doors prior to doing so.

  • Mission 5 - Escape with eight or more marines.

    You will want to immediately put both of the top Genestealer spawn areas under Overwatch, as you otherwise will be swarmed from the very beginning. Have the Heavy Flamer equipped Terminator take the lead and have the rest follow. Put the remaining corridors under Overwatch until you have a safe passage all the way to the exit, then have the rear guard start making a tactical withdrawal.

  • Mission 6 - Wake all unconscious Marines and take no casualties.

    You will want to move as swiftly as possible in order to reach every Terminator in time. To do this, have the Lightning Claw equipped Terminator in front to more easily destroy the nearby damaged doors, while the Librarian at the same time move towards those rooms with still functional doors. Using Force Barrier tactically is of utmost importance, as is navigating the rooms in relation to the Genestealers positions. Be aware that once you have awakened a Terminator, you have to wait 1 turn before given control. Once all unconscious Terminators are back on their feet and there have been no losses, the trophy will unlock.

  • Mission 7 - The marine that picks up the artefact must be the one exiting the map with it.

    Protect the flanks while the Heavy Flamer takes the lead with the Librarian close behind. Make way with the Heavy Flamer and clear a path through any incoming Genestealers, then after picking up the artifact - preferably with the Librarian - simply head back to the starting point and exit the map. Good use of the Force Barrier and Overwatch is important as always.

  • Mission 8 - Calistarius must survive.

    As soon as the mission begins, position one Storm Bolter equipped Terminator facing north and another facing south. Quickly advance through the middle corridors with the Heavy Flamer in the lead position in order to easily clear out any Genestealers approaching from the front. Again, using the Librarian and the Force Barrier ability is key to prevent you from being flanked.

  • Exit the map with at least 7 marines in the "Regroup" mission, but not before all have been put into play.

    One of the longer missions and can prove to be somewhat taxing. Locking down the corridors leading to the Genestealer spawn areas and securing your flanks quickly is imperative. Move the Terminators through the middle corridors and secure the exit while making a fighting withdrawal. Using the Librarian and your heavy weapons to the fullest is the key to victory here. Save often and don't hesitate to use the undo mechanic as you can't afford to lose more than a single Terminator.

  • Let no terminators die during "Defend" mission.

    This is another long mission, mainly due to the high number of Genestealers that need to be defeated i.e 88 in total. The objective is to defend the pumping station and this is best done by quickly moving the Power Sword equipped Sergeant and 2 Storm Bolter equipped Terminators into the room where the objective is located. Position the Sergeant with his back to the wall in the middle of the room while facing down the corridor leading to the pumping station, and then have each of the other 2 Terminators in a corner on the opposite side of the room. Since using heavy weapons inside this area is forbidden and will fail the mission if you not abide to this, you are better off placing the remaining Terminators in another room and make a stand from there. Be sure to fire manually whenever possible and make sure to have enough CPs for any potential jams.

    Warning: Using the undo mechanic in this mission will most likely cause it to glitch and force you to restart. Simply refrain from pressing during the entirety of the mission in order to avoid that from happening.

  • Mission 11 - Kill the broodlord.

    You can kill the Broodlord in any way you see fit, however the Broodlord is immune to both fire and psychic abilities. Using either the Assault Cannon or the Librarian in melee while on Guard is the easiest and most reliable way to kill it.

  • Escape with at least two Terminators before the end of the tenth turn in "Pitfall" mission.

    This mission is glitched although in a good way. The mission consist of 2 levels; Terminators start on the 2nd, and the Genestealers on the 1st. Due to the mission being glitched, the Genestealers never climb the ladders that connect the two levels, thus making the last and final mission effortless. All you have to do is to rush the Terminators to the exit.

  • Get all the mission specific trophies.

    This will unlock once you have finished the last of the mission specific trophies.

  • Finish the “Sin of damnation” campaign on easy.


    See Gold Medal For The Emperor and Saguinius.

  • Finish the “Sin of damnation” campaign on normal.


    See Gold Medal For The Emperor and Saguinius.

  • Finish the “Sin of damnation” campaign on hard.

    The difficulty trophies stack, however, they do not unlock right away in the traditional sense. More precisely, if you on your first playthrough decide to play on Hard difficulty, then the trophy for that setting will unlock as soon as you finish the main campaign. In order to unlock the trophies for the other difficulties, you need to play through Mission 12: Pitfall again, once on Easy and once on Normal difficulty respectively, each time taking about 5 minutes.

    If you on the other hand finish the first playthrough on Normal difficulty, like I did, then simply play through the last mission on Easy difficulty to unlock that respective trophy. However, a full playthrough on Hard difficulty will still be required.
