July 12, 2011 Written by Staff

Things are much different for our favorite Cole this time around, with new enemies and powers at his disposal. Should you feel the desire, you can collect every trophy in inFamous 2, thanks to our community guide, brought to you by siteunleashed. Check out the full list of the trophies and how to collect them below.

Note: In order to platinum you will need to play through the game twice. My suggestion is that you go through once all evil and once all good. Complete the game once on hard and do the second play through on easy in order to finish faster and get more XP.

Pain Builds Character (Gold)Finish the game on hard difficulty.

You will get this trophy by finishing the game on Hard difficulty. You will need to switch the difficulty the moment you have control of Cole at the beginning of the game when you jump off the boat to fight the Beast in order to ensure getting the trophy.

Just One More (Gold)Pick up all the blast shards scattered around New Marais.

This requires you to get every blast shard. This is a piece of cake as long as you purchase Blast Shard Sense, which will direct you to the closest blast shard no matter how far away it is.

With Great Power Comes Greater Power (Silver)Unlock and purchase all powers.

To do this you will need to purchase every power and upgrade. Do this on your second play through on Easy because you will get more XP and upon finishing the second time you are awarded 15000 XP which helps. It also helps if you do it on Evil since it is a little bit easier to get XP when you can wail on civilians.

Shardcore (Silver)Pick up 50% of blast shards scattered around New Marais.

Will come with Just One More.

Fight the Good Fight (Silver)Unlock the good ending.

After getting the last blast core you will have a choice of unlocking one of two endings. Pick the good ending to unlock this trophy.

After getting the last blast core you will have a choice of unlocking one of two endings. Pick the evil ending to unlock this trophy.

Land Lord (Silver)Take over the first island in New Marais.

This requires you to take over an island of New Marais. do so by completing side missions in the area. If an area hasn’t been cleared, visit it and defeat some enemies. One should drop a Convoy or Hidden Package mission.

It’s My Town, Now (Silver)Take over the second island in New Marais.

See Land Lord.

Well inFORMED (Silver)Collect all Dead drops.

This requires you to find all the dead drops which shouldn’t be too hard if you are also looking for blast shards since the two are usually in the same area.

This requires you to fire a helicopter’s rockets back at it using a blast ability. Certain missions will have you encounter a helicopter. Dodge the bullets until it starts pointing lasers at you.
