Estimated Difficulty: 6/10
Estimated Time to Platinum: 15-20 hours (single player), 50 hours (multiplayer boosting)
Offline Trophies: 35 (30 , 3 , 2 )
Online Trophies: 14 (12 , 2 )
Combined Trophies: 2 (1 , 1 )
Minimum Number of Playthroughs Required: 1.5 (plus chapter select for certain trophies)
Do Difficulty Trophies Stack?: There is only one difficulty trophy, and that's the hard trophy.
Missable Trophies: None of the trophies are really missible due to chapter select, however be trying to do Librarian of Macragge, Master of Sword and Gun, Burn Them All, Brute Force...Unleashed, Finesse and Fury, and Shock & Awe. All the other trophies will more than likely come with just playing the game through natural gameplay. Also be sure to add in your online code to get past level 5 when doing multiplayer.
Step 1: Play the game.
The first step is pretty simple. You just need to play the game. Play it on whatever difficulty you're comfortable with. Whether that be Hard or Easy, play it.
You also do not need to do this step. If you want, you can combine this step with step 2. I thought it was easier to do it on Normal first because then I played it on Hard and the game is easier since you know what to expect.
During this step would probably be the best time to get Librarian of Macragge. You'll also need to just kill everything to get your kill count up. Do melee to get your melee kills and kill with your ranged weapons (also while aiming for headshots) to get your range kills.
Step 2: Play the game on Hard.
This could potentially be combined with step 1 or done in its own. You'll need to get the trophy The Emperor Protects which is playing on Hard during a single session without dying, restarting, or anything like that. This is a harder trophy if you're not very good at the game.
If this is your second playthrough, you'll also most likely get the Visible, Violent Death trophy during this run.
Step 3: Multiplayer
Remember to put in your Online Pass before playing, otherwise you won't get past level 5! Multiplayer is where you're gonna be for the majority of these trophies, mainly because of Keeper of the Armory, since you have to get every single weapon challenge. It's very time consuming, but you'll be able to do it in a private match. You may think Chapter Master is the worst, but it's definitely Keeper of the Armory. You'll get Chapter Master by just attempting to get (or even boosting) Keeper of the Armory.
Boosting is your best bet for the majority of the trophies in multiplayer. See the Trophy Boosting/Co-op Partners Thread for others looking to do the multiplayer trophies in private sessions.
Remember that all multiplayer trophies can be boosted!
Step 4: Clean Up
For this, you're looking to just clean up every other trophy you haven't gotten. You're looking mostly at doing Master of Sword and Gun, Burn Them All, Brute Force...Unleashed, Finesse and Fury, and Shock & Awe, because more than likely you haven't done them. A good place for 3 of them is chapter 14. It's a little difficult, you just have to conserve your ammo and never miss. Or you can try your luck on other chapters.
You're also going to be doing True Son of the Emperor which has been keeping track for the entire time you've been playing. That's the last thing you'll be going for in the game, most likely. 40,000 is a lot of kills. Be sure to use spots in single player that have the Ork Weirdboy since they'll continually spawn Orks.

Chaos Unleashed DLC:
-Estimated trophy difficulty: 7 (Personal estimate)
-Offline (breakdown): 0
-Online (breakdown): 9 (3, 6)
-Approximate amount of time to 100%: 3hrs+ (Skill dependent)
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1+
-Number of missable trophies: 1, Heretic
-Glitched trophies: None
-Do cheat codes disable trophies: There are no cheats
-Does difficulty affect trophies: N/A
This DLC pack is called "Chaos Invasion". It contains four different Arenas (maps), each Arena has five waves (rounds), except for the last Arena, it has a bonus wave. The DLC consists of nine online trophies.
Here is how you can access the DLC missions via the main menu:
Online > Exterminatus > Start search > Chaos unleashed
Online > Exterminatus private > Game settings > Exterminatus mission: Chaos Invasion
Step 1: Playing normally
Play the mission normally and know your enemies and get used to the Arenas (Maps) and you'll earn most of the trophies.
Note: If you don't want to waste time then just skip this step and begin with step 2.
Step 2: Finding the right people
At this step you'll need to find 3 other players because the DLC mission is really tough, especially the bonus wave (wave 21). Random players will not listen so it's best to find 3 others who are willing to help. If you don't have them, you can always go here: LINK and ask for help.
Step 3: Playing in a public match
Play the mission in a PUBLIC match and aim for the "Heretic" trophy as you will earn most, if not all of the trophies naturally.
IMPORTANT: During this step I highly recommend that you play it in a public match so you won't have to do it again in a public match for the "Heretic" trophy.
Step 4: clean up
If you have followed my guide and finished Chaos Invasion mission on a public game, then you’ll most likely need the "Frugal Spenders" and/or "Kill, for the Sake of Killing" trophies. The best location to get them is Arena 1, see their trophy walkthroughs for for more details.
- All of the trophies can be gotten in public/private matches, except for Heretic which requires that you play in public matches, see that trophy for more details.
- You don't have to play each Arena from the beginning in order to obtain their trophies. For Example If you joined a public match on Arena 1 and they were at wave 3, you can continue till wave 5 and finish it. You will still get that Arena trophy.
- The arena trophies are not stackable so you will have to play each Arena in order to obtain their trophies.
