Eyes & Feathers & Horns
There is a total of 45 Collectibles to get. This will earn you 3 silver trophies. You will need to find 15 Gorgon Eyes, 15 Phoenix Feather and 15 Minotaur Horns. Don’t panic if you missed one of the chests in the video. There will be a couple extra chests towards the end of the game.
Collect all of the Godly Possessions
There are 6 different Godly Possessions in total. Each one will give you special abilities after beating the game. Number 3 can only be gained by successfully finishing the shown mini game 3 times when entering Sparta. The last one requires you to buy all of the items in the Temple of Zeus which will cost exactly one million red orbs.
You can easily farm lots of orbs by playing the combat arena with infinite magic, the god armor costume and your godly possession ‘The King’s Ring’ against 4 Minotaurs.
Make Her Scream
Make a Titan scream for over a minute
This is story-related and can be done when you meet the Titan called Thera. This will appear relatively early in the game. After a cutscene you will need to press the Circle-Button to start the mini-game. Use the left stick until you see Kratos raising his arms then release the button for a second and make him raise his arms again. It’s a bit tricky to hold the right balance all over the time so you might need a couple tries.
The Midas Trick
Attempt to open the Golden Chest for 30 seconds
This trophy is actually very simple. All you need to know is the location of the Golden Chest. You will find it in the Section called ‘The River Lament” towards the end of the game. The chest is in front of a giant cyclops statue which makes it easy to spot.
Execute a 1000-Hit Combo
This can easily be done in the Combat Arena after beating the game. Set your amount of magic to infinite and select 4 Minotaurs as your opponents. Enable respawn and do not allow them to attack you.
Just keep pressing the direction button to the left and the hit counter will raise quickly. A very nice side effect are the orbs you can farm with this method. Simply choose the God Armor Costume and enable the king’s ring and you will be rewarded with 60.000 orbs per minute.
-Challenge 1 (Six Ways To Die)-
Open all 6 chests place in the arena without dying.
This is the first Challenge of the Gods and it’s a simple one. You have to open up 6 chests. There is no time limit and only very basic enemies. Use your Scourge of Erinys magic attack (Direction Button to the left) to get rid of enemies before opening a chest.
-Challenge 2 (The Gaunlet)-
Kill all of your enemies before they kill you.
The most time consuming Challenge.
The task sounds easy: Kill all enemies. There are 3 waves of enemies. The second wave is the hardest. The Keres Wraiths are very annoying because they tend to grab you all over the time. To avoid this you should use the R1+Square Attack (Throw Spear) with the Arms of Sparta. Use your magic attacks in this wave as well. The first and last wave are pretty easy.
-Challenge 3 (Nocrates)-
Retrieve all its red orbs before time runs out.
In the very beginning of the fight you should perform your Scourge of Erinys magic attack by pressing the direction button left. After all the guards are dead you can attack the boxes with your Arms of Sparta. Use the very basic attack with Square. It’s the most effective one against the boxes. Once you destroyed everything you have to open a chest.
-Challenge 4 (Unscathed)-
Kill all the enemies without taking a single hit
The hardest challenge.
In the beginning you have to fight a cyclops. Use the R1+ (hold) Square attack. The explosive fire balls will stun the cyclops. Use Circle whenever you can to speed up the process.
In the next wave of enemies you will encounter two gorgons. Shouldn’t be that hard though. Use some heavy attacks to weaken both. Once they are nearly dead kill only one gorgon and keep the other one alive. You can use it against the birds that will spawn right after the one gorgon is dead. Press the Circle Button when prompted to start the mini game. When you finish it successfully all of the birds will be turned into stone which will kill them instantly. For the other birds and gorgons you should primarily use your magic attacks. You can also throw some spears (equip Arms of Sparta and press R1+Square) to take out some of the birds that are far away. In the next wave you will have to kill several spiders. Equip your Arms of Sparta and keep holding the L1 Button to block. Once you blocked the poison you can start Spartan Charge attack with L1+Circle.
-Challenge 5 (Gear Up)-
Collect 3 Automaton Gears before your health is drained.
Just keep using some moves that can break armor and this Challenge will easily be done on the first try. You can also make use of your magic when you are in trouble.
-Challenge 6 (Airborne)-
Stay in the air for 10 seconds without touching the ground.
Launch an enemy by holding the Triangle Button and jump up with the X Button. Now you press nothing but the Circle Button to perform throws in the air. It might take a couple tries but there is no time limit which makes this Challenge relatively easy.
-Challenge 7 (Ground Pounder)-
Hyperion Rush an enemy to the ground and land 10 hits in a row.
Spam the Scourge of Erinys magic attack to get a group of enemies lined up. Now you use the Buttons L1+Circle to perform the Hyperion Rush Move. Rapidly press Square when you are on the ground to get the 10 hit combo.
-Challenge 8 (Guard Break)-
Break 5 shields simultaneously.
Go into the bottom right corner of the arena and block all attacks with L1. Once you are surrounded by the 5 enemies you unleash the Horn of Boreas and all shields will break simultaneously.
-Challenge 9 (Ricochet)-
Parry 5 arrows in a row.
When the fight begins you should go back a couple steps to see all archers. Simply press L1 all over the time when your Arms of Sparta weapon is equipped.
-Challenge 10 (Fear Kratos!)-
All must cower before the God of War.
This is the funniest challenge. All you need to do is to run in circles in the middle of the arena. Sooner or later the people will come along the way and will automatically bow down.
-Challenge 11 (Frozen in Flight)-
Shatter 5 Ravens simultaneously.
When the match starts use L1 to block attacks until you are surrounded by the five Ravens. Use your Horn of Boreas Magic Attack and victory is yours.
-Challenge 12 (Magic Maker)-
Refill your entire magic meter.
Alright, I did it the hard way. If you want to cheat you can simply activate the Bonds of Areas and the Challenge is over. If you want to do it the old fashioned way you just need to kill some enemies and your magic meter will be filled within 2 minutes.
-Challenge 13 (Bone Crusher)-
Kill 10 Cursed Remains with grab.
This is the last Challenge in the game. If you finished all the others you will be rewarded with a gold trophy.
All you need to do here is to spam the Circle Button to grab the Cursed Remains. 2 Minutes and you are done.
