Killzone 3 – Trophy Guide

Victory – Complete Campaign on Elite (Gold) Completed every mission on Elite difficulty.

This is probably the hardest trophy in the game, it will require patience and a lot of trial and error. Here are a few tips that you may find useful:

  • The most obvious tip of all – DON’T GO CHARGING IN! Sit back and pick off the enemies as they appear, slowly move forward and complete a section at a time.
  • Cover isn’t always safe. If you go into cover that is only waist-high then the enemies will still be able to shoot parts of your body that may be sticking out. Use cover wisely. If you see an enemy in cover then try to run from cover to cover to get behind him. Also peeking out from cover a couple of seconds at a time helps, it lets you see if enemies are moving and it may distract their fire long enough for a teammate to kill them. Make good use of any heavy weapons. The heavy weapons will help to take down the enemy much quicker than smaller guns, they can also help to take out large groups at a time.
  • Make use of the ammo crates. The ammo crates in the game are generously placed all over, so don’t be afraid to waste clips of ammo so long as you can refill nearby.
  • Try to aim for the Helghast’s head. Shooting and hitting the head of an enemy will be an instant kill, this allows you to take out groups quicker or enemies hiding behind cover.
  • Don’t even try to use melee/brutal melee. It isn’t worth trying because you will force yourself out of cover. More often than not it will always end badly.
  • Use the knowledge of your first play through. Try to remember where enemies spawn from so you have an advantage. Use your surroundings. If you happen to see any explosive objects then don’t be afraid to blow them up. They will damage a single Helghast or even a group
  • The checkpoint system for the most part is very generous. If you know where your next checkpoint is, then try to take your time and get there before you die, if you do this you can slowly move through the levels without even realising.

You do NOT have to complete the game through from beginning to end of Elite. You are able to complete it in a random order by choosing chapter select, this will give you a break if you ever get stuck on a particular section. Also please be aware that it has been said this WILL NOT unlock in co-op mode, it must be done by yourself in the single player campaign.

Fight To The Last – Kill 1500 Helghast (Silver)Killed 1500 Helghast.

Pretty simple really. Just kill 1500 Helghast throughout the game. Your kills will carry over to a second play through as long as you use chapter select and not start a new campaign. You should get 500 kills around chapter 6 of your first play through. You should hit 1000 kills somewhere near the end of your first play through or the beginning of your second. You should hit 1500 kills near the end of your second play through. If you don’t have 1500 by the end of your second play through you can always use chapter select to play a few more levels until you get it.

Frag Out – Kill 3 Helghast with 1 Frag Grenade (Bronze)Killed 3 Helghast using 1 fragmentation grenade.

This is really easy to do while taking the control room of the mobile factory in chapter 7. After you open the final door there will be three Helghast inside the control room. As soon as the door opens toss a grenade in there and you should kill all three of them. If you don’t get all three then just reload the checkpoint and try again.

One Each – Kill 3 Helghast with Shotgun Pistol, no reloads (Bronze)Shot and killed 3 Helghast using the Shotgun Pistol without reloading or switching weapons.

Use the shotgun pistol to kill three enemies in a row without reloading or changing guns. I recommend doing this on Recruit difficulty as it is easier to do it without dying. You should try for this in a level with lots of ground troops.

Eagle Eye – Every Sniper Rifle bullet is a kill (Bronze)Shot and killed 6 Helghast using the Sniper Rifle without reloading or switching weapons.

Use the Sniper Rifle to kill six enemies without reloading or changing guns. I recommend doing this on the Recruit difficulty as its easier to do it without dying. You can get this pretty easily on the level where you first get a sniper rifle.

Frazzle Dazzle – Kill 3 Helghast with one shot from the StA5X Arc Cannon (Bronze)Used the StA5X Arc Cannon to kill 3 Helghast with one shot.

You will get the Ar Cannon after you free Narville at the beginning of chapter 6. You can charge it up by holding “R1”. Once it is fully charged it will fire. As soon as the door opens fire it at the first enemy that comes out. It should hit all three of them and unlock the trophy. If for some reason it doesn’t hit all three there will be three more that come through the door as soon as they are all dad so you can try again. If you still don’t get it then just reload the checkpoint and try again.

Power Spike – Nail a Helghast to an exploding object (Bronze)Used the Boltgun to nail a Helghast to an exploding object.

In chapter 7 you will get a Boltgun. Use it to nail an enemy to an exploding object.
