This Glitch allows you to boost an infinite amount of XP and evil Karma by repeating a very simple action over and over again. It’s only possible in missions with LaRoche’s men supporting you. Anyway, you have the best chances in the mission: ’21. Storm the Fort’. Instead of fighting the enemies you will focus on LaRoche’s men. Simply take them down and keep attacking them with your alpha bolt. When your energy runs out you can drain one of the soldiers. They will never die.
-New Marais Main Island, Ascension Parish and The Bayou–
-Flood Town and Gas Works–
Return To Sender
Send a Helicopter’s rockets back at it using any Blast ability.
This can easily be done during the Mission ‘7. Bertrand Takes the Stage’.’
When you see the helicopter aiming on you with a red laser it’s about to shoot rockets on you. Make sure that you have enough Energy left and spam your Blast Attack a couple times.
Helicopters can also be found on the blacked out areas of the map. So don’t worry if you missed this opportunity.
I’m As Shocked As You Are
Defeat an enemy or civilian by stepping in water
This can already be done with the very first group of enemies in the Mission ‘2. Breaking into New Marais’. Simply use your Alpha Blast by pressing L1+X to throw an enemy in water and jump inside.
Watch That First Step
Defeat an enemy by destroying the object they stand on.
There are many breakable things that can be used to get this trophy. The first opportunity is at the beginning of the Mission ‘3. Forward Momentum’.
Just throw a couple Alpha Grenades up the balcony and you should hear the trophy sound.
Take down a street performer who is imitating a statue.
You need to progress a bit in the story before the street performers become available. You can see a red music symbol on your map when you are near a street performer. Most of them play an instrument, but there are also those white colored dudes who act like pantomimes. Just take one of them out and the trophy will pop.
Method 1: There is a Side Mission called ‘Masquerade’ that appears very early in the game. You will encounter a group of militia disguised as statue street performers. Climb the pillar in the middle of the park or go for a higher building.
Method 2: In the Mission ’10. Desperate Times’. When following Nix she will catch a group of exactly five enemies. You need to hurry up because the enemies break free after a couple seconds. Until then they are not able to move. Climb up the house to your right – but just a couple meters. When the enemies are about to break free you should perform the Thunder drop.
Take Them For A Spin
Hit at least 6 cars in a single Ionic Vortex.
After getting the second Blast Core you will learn the ‘Ionic Vortex’ ability. Kill some enemies until they drop such a vortex (purple energy) and collect it.
Now search for a roomy street. Position yourself in the middle of the street and wait until there are enough vehicles. Parked cars do also count. Make sure the cars do explode when they are hit by the Vortex.
Nothing Can Bring Me Down
Stay off the ground for 130 meters
First of all, you will need to play through the story until you get the improved static thrusters upgrade. You will earn it by absorbing the third blast core in the mission ‘Good Gets Better’. Climb the clock tower in the north of the first island and fly north-west by holding the R1 Button. Make sure that you do not land on a power supply line. Alternatively you can do this on the cathedral or ice tower.
Use the Precision ability to rack up three head shots in rapid succession
To get the precision ability you need to play through the story a bit. After it’s unlocked you can zoom in and slow down the environment. That’s quite useful but consumes a lot of energy. Make sure that you collected enough blast shards to make this easier. There is a power called ‘Precision Enhanced’ that can be bought after completing 50 side missions. It’s not needed but makes the process a lot easier. Moreover you can also do this by shooting pedestrians. You are also allowed to miss a shot or kill an enemy an other way. Just make sure that the counter on the top left shows Precision Head Shock +1 XP (x3). It’s all about being fast enough.
The shown group of enemies will respawn and keep patrolling in this area until the territory has been taken.
Climb to the top of the 3 tallest buildings in New Marais.
The 3 buildings are: Clock Tower, Cathedral, Ice Tower.
Build one and two are situated on the first island. Building number three is on the last unlocked part of the map. Just follow the main plot and you will get there.
Climbing them shouldn’t be that hard. There are many ways to reach the top.
Thunder drop from the highest place in New Marais.
The tallest building is the Ice Tower. It’s located on the last unlocked part of the map, on the northern island. Make sure that you fly from the very top until your reach the ground. If you hit the building itself the trophy won’t be unlocked. The Thunder Drop can be activated by pressing the Square Button.
Back to the Bayou
Return to the swamp blockade
You have to absorb the third Blast Core to get the improved static thrusters. Without them you won’t be able to make the first jump.
Go to the harbour, north of the first island. Climb the ship you used to enter New Marais and jump north to reach a large pole. Climb up and follow the shown way to get back to the little village your came by at the beginning of the game.
