Welcome to PlayStation LifeStyle’s Trophy Guide for Far Cry 4! There are 51 Trophies to be earned and this will be a pretty easy Platinum. It’s more time consuming rather than difficult. A majority of the Trophies are tied to finding a small portion of the collectibles and mission completion. As you progress through the game’s main story, more side missions will become available. Liberating Outposts and Bell Tower’s will also unlock side missions. A portion of the collectibles will be revealed on the map as you take care of the Outposts and Bell Towers. You can buy maps from the Trading Posts that will fully reveal the locations of the collectibles. Everything is expensive in the game so, be sure to search bodies and loot chests. Both will give large amounts of money in addition to the rewards earned by completing missions. None of the Trophies are missable and there is free roam after you complete the main story to pick up anything you have left. 

Spoiler Alert: There are spoilers within the guide. If you’re trying to avoid spoilers, it’s recommended that you complete the game before reading any further.

There are 24 Outposts that need to liberated. They are marked on your map as a white square with a red flag. To liberate them, you just need to kill all of the enemies that are patrolling it.

If an enemy triggers an alarm, you’ll have to kill all of the reinforcements as well.

Tread Lightly – Bronze

– Liberate any Outpost without triggering an alarm in any mode (Campaign only).

This Trophy is easiest earned on the very first Outpost that will have to liberate as part of the story. Basically, all you need to do is kill all of the enemy soldiers without them signaling the alarm. If that happens, restart the mission from the Options menu. Approach the Outpost from the mountains behind it. Tag all of the enemies before doing anything so you know what you’re up against. After you’ve done that, look for the elephant that is locked in a cage. On the gate of the cage there is a lock that if shot, will free the elephant and it will kill all of the soldiers for you. Aim for the lock and shoot it with the bow, (the bow is silent and won’t alert the enemy) once the elephant is out, sit back and let it clear the Outpost for you. The enemy won’t trigger an alarm for animal attacks.

The Survival missions have you racing a clock that is counting down. You will also have to switch vehicles during the race. You don’t have to finish three of one type. You can if you want, but you can also finish two of a type and one of the other and still earn the Trophy. 

Defender – Bronze

Robin Hood – Bronze

– Hijack 3 Royal Cargo Trucks and return them to a liberated Outpost (Campaign only).

As you’re traveling across the map, you will encounter Royal Cargo Trucks. The game will let you know when one is near you.

Killing enemies, liberating Outposts, liberating Bell Towers, completing side missions, discovering new locations and completing the main story missions will all grant you XP. Some Skills will require you to reach a certain point in the story, collect a certain amount of collectibles and play certain side missions in order to unlock them for purchase.

To craft a syringe, hold L1 and press R1 to bring up the syringe wheel. Next, just select whichever syringe you’d like to craft.

Make It Rain – Bronze

– Spend 500,000 rupees total at Trading Posts (Campaign only).

This may seem like a lot, but it’s really not. Just make sure to search dead enemies and loot chests. You’ll earn large amounts of money for doing that in addition to completing quests. Everything in the Trading Posts is fairly expensive so, you should earn this Trophy rather quickly. It’s also accumlative, so, you don’t have to spend 500,000 at once. 

Custom-Fitted – Bronze

– Buy all attachments and paint schemes for a single weapon (Campaign only).

When you equip a weapon from a Trading Post, you’ll have the opportunity to buy attachments and paint schemes. You can actually get the Trophy by just buying all of the paint schemes for weapons that don’t have attachments. If a weapon as a red circle over the attachments, that means it doesn’t have any. That makes this Trophy much cheaper and less time consuming. 

Tusker – Bronze

– Kill 30 enemies with an elephant (Campaign only).

Before you can earn this Trophy, you’ll need to unlock the Elephant Rider skill. Once you have that, get on an elephant and start killing enemies. Riding elephants into Outposts is a good way to get a large amount of kills quickly. Just make sure to have some extra health syringes with you. This Trophy is also accumlative.

Quad Kill – Bronze

– Kill 4 enemies simultaneously with a single explosion (Campaign only).

You can do this a number of different ways, but one of the more easier ways is to use the Pagan Wraith convoys. Once a Wraith convoy shows up on the map, it will follow a route that will ultimately bring it around in a circle. You can track it by looking at where the skull icon on the map moves to. Just place some C4 in the middle of the road and wait for the convy to drive by. Blow the explosive after the first truck passes but before the second truck can pass so that it’s in between two trucks.

Misdirection – Bronze

– Distract 15 enemies with rocks (Campaign only).

Reign Of Death – Bronze

– Kill 30 enemies with mortar rounds (Campaign only).

Mortars can be found at some Outposts. You can sneak in before liberating an Outpost and use the mortar to clear it out but that can be a dangerous route.

From A Distance – Bronze

– Kill a target from 60m or more with an arrow or bolt (Campaign only).

This Trophy can be earned at the Kyra Tea Weigh Station Outpost. There is a lone guard standing near the map coordinates X: 344.4 and Y: 382.8. Place a marker on him so that you can see how far you are from him. Once you’re passed 60m, shoot and kill him with the bow.

 Flame On! – Bronze

– Kill 50 enemies with fire (Campaign only).

Molotovs and the Flamethrower are best for this Trophy. Molotovs can be bought at Trading Posts early in the game. The Flamethrower can be found later into the story. Using them will also catch large portions of the surrounding area on fire, so, it’ll kill enemies that you didn’t aim directly at as well. 

Drive-By – Bronze

– Kill 25 enemies while shooting and driving (Campaign only).

Press R2 to shoot as you are driving. Only sidearms are able to be used while driving. You can stop the car to shoot enemies, just don’t get out. This Trophy is accumulative. You do not need all 25 kills in the same vehicle. The M-79 makes this Trophy a breeze as it’s a grenade launcher. 

The Good Fight – Bronze

– Reach Karma Level 2, and purchase any Guns For Hire upgrade (Campaign only).

Karma is earned by helping the Golden Path fighters. You gain Karma by liberating Outposts, Bell Towers and completing the random events that pop up as you travel across the map. The game will tell you when a Karma mission is near. It will be marked by a purple diamond. Your Kamra level can be tracked by pressing the Touch Pad and going over the Progress menu. Once you reach level two, go to a Trading Post and buy a Guns For Hire upgrade from the Items menu of the Trading Post. 

Like A Bird – Bronze

– Fly 5000m total in the Wingsuit (Campaign only).

The Wingsuit can be purchased from the Trading Posts. There is a good way to “farm” this quickly with long distances but it can be a bit of a grind. Go to the Ghale Homestead, jump off the ledge that has the Glider, fly until you land and then fast travel back and do it again. You can repeat that process until the Trophy pops. Get to the top and jump off, immediately press L3 to equip the Wingsuit and then glide as far as you can. This is another accumlative Trophy. 

Roadkill – Bronze

– Run over 25 people (Campaign only).

Simply get in a vehicle and run over enemies. This Trophy is accumlative so, you’ll more than likely earn it as you progress through story and travel across the map. 

The People’s Champ – Silver

– Reach Arena Rank 5 (Campaign Arena only).

The Arena is found at Shanath, you gain access to it by progressing through the story. You have Arena Rank that is completely separate from your actual level. Just fight in the Arena in any of the game modes and you’ll learn XP for the Arena Rank. It will only take a game or two to reach Rank 5. 

Renaissance Man – Silver

– Finish a public match of each game type in the Battles of Kyrat game mode (Battles of Kyrat only).

There are only three different game modes. Battles of Kyrat is accessed through the Chronicles menu at the very first start menu after booting up the game. Just play a game in each mode and you’ll earn the Trophy win or lose.

  2. Propaganda
  3. Demon Mask

Community Surprise – Silver

– Play a Top Rated map in the Map Browser (Map Browser only).
