Zombie Army Trilogy is a third-person action shooter developed by Rebellion Developments, who are also responsible for developing the Sniper Elite series. The Zombie Army Trilogy was originally released as DLC for Sniper Elite V2 on the PC and was called Nazi Zombie Army. The game is set during World War II, where Hitler has released a legion of undead super soldiers that threaten to overrun all of Europe. Sniper Elite and Zombie Army Trilogy are near enough the same so if you have played any of the Sniper Elite games, you will be familiar with the gameplay (stuff like the bullet cam and the layout of the controls).
The game sees you play through 15 campaign missions set over three episodes, as well as a Wave based mode called Horde Mode. The campaign can be completed in about 10 hours, if you are doing it on Co-op mode with 2-4 players. The trophy list is similar to other Sniper Elite games with a mix of story related, difficulty, kill related and online co-op.
There was a glitch were you could not unlock the last gold bar but as of April 20th this has been patched. More information here: LINK
Step 1: Play through the campaign on Sniper Elite difficulty
In this first step, you're going to complete the campaign on the hardest difficulty setting (Sniper Elite). For the most part this difficulty is not very challenging and you should get through the levels pretty easily. If at any point you are struggling you can play in online co-op mode (there is no local co-op) with up to 3 other players. You can also set the Enemy Spawn Setting to "for One Player" which will make it even easier and will not compromise your progress towards any trophies. You will also focus on a few miscellaneous trophies during this step to somewhat reduce any post campaign grinding that is required. This includes changing your playable character after each mission for the Gratuitous violence from the lot of you trophy.
All progression towards kill related trophies transfers over to Chapter Select, so don't worry if you don't unlock all of these after completing all campaign missions as you can easily grind them post game or work towards their requirements whilst playing Horde Mode in Step 3.
Upon completion of Step 1 you will earn:
Don't mention the Z word!
Play it Thule
The pen is mightier than the sidearm
No more room in Hell
Hell on earth, that's it
Into the fire
Descent into Hell
This is going to be a bumpy ride
I think we'll start with a reign of terror
You have got rid of those stiffs yet
There's something in the mist!
Broadsword calling Danny Boy
Taste some of Mama's home cookin', Adolf!
You want me to salute that pile of..?
I kick arse for the Lord!
Gratuitous violence from the lot of you
This calls for divine intervention!
Step 2: Play through the campaign again via Chapter Select on Cadet difficulty focusing on collectibles
In this step, you will want to go through the campaign again via Chapter Select to rack up your kills for zombies, Super Elites, Summoners, snipers, skeletons and rack up your combo and explosive kills. It's easier to do this on Cadet as you won't have to shoot the Super Elites as much.
You should also aim to collect all the collectibles in this playthrough. Every mission has 5 gold bars and 4 bottles of blood. Once you picked up one of the collectibles you can exit a chapter and you won't lose your progress towards the trophy.
You will also want to aim for the co-op trophies, and complete the survivor quests. The best way to farm kills is to go into co-op mode and rack up the zombies to 4-player and go into a level with a 'survive the siege' at the end (the Library of Evil for an example). This also works for explosive kills and 5-in-one sniper shot. However, don't spend too much time grinding kills just yet as you will likely obtain a lot of these trophies whilst playing Horde Mode in Step 3.
Upon completion of Step 2 you will earn:
Don't get all stingy with your bullets
The head bone's connected to the...oh, wait
Naughty little boys get what they deserve
We don't need a stretcher. We need a mop!
Good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun
Snuff them out
Every bullet counts
We got this by the ass!
It's just a flesh wound!
Burning a hole in your pocket
Give me something to shoot
We all go a little mad sometimes
Like a drunk who's lost a bet
Somebody's got to survive!
My family's always been in meat
Come and get it! It's a running buffet!
Your blood pressure is zero over zero
Headshots are the very best
And stay down!
I will not negotiate with the Undead!
Scourge of zombiekind
You've got red on you
Man, you sure know a lot about monsters
Just in case we make it
They must be destroyed on sight!
We have a Judas in our midst!
Leave the limbs you've lost
Got you, didn't I, you little sucker!
Got your back
A friend in need
Got the killshot!
You're so dead, you don't even know it
Down but not out
Step 3: Complete up to Wave 10 on Horde Mode for each map
Horde mode is a wave based game, like the Call of Duty zombie modes or Exo Survival. Each wave gets progressively harder with more zombies and tougher enemies like the Super Elites. Getting to wave 10 on each map can take from half an hour up to an hour, depending if you are playing solo or with 2 or more players. You don't actually need to complete wave 10 for the trophy to unlock so once you get there, you can let yourself get killed to end the round. In total there are 5 maps in which you will need to play and make to Wave 10. During this step you will also aim to unlock other co-op specific trophies.
Upon completion of Step 3 you will earn:
Zombies, man, they creep me out!
You're going to meet Death now...
You're going to have to work for your meal
I'll teach ya how to shoot!
Guts and glory
You have...death around you
They're coming to get you, Barbra!
You have no reason to fear the dead
