Killzone: Shadow Fall Trophy Guide

December 24, 2013Written by Richard Duflo


Welcome to PlayStation LifeStyle’s trophy guide for Killzone: Shadow Fall! The first PlayStation 4 installment of Killzone doesn’t have many trophies (only 33) but this Platinum will be very time consuming. Most of your time here will be spent in the multiplayer. They are not difficult but will require many hours. They are all earned mainly by just playing, there are no ‘do something specific in a match’ type trophies.

Most of the single player trophies can be earned after you beat the game via chapter select. K:SF takes the chapter select one step further – the chapters are broken down into sections, so, you can select a chapter and then also select a section anywhere within the chapter. This comes in especially handy for finding collectibles and beating the game without dying.

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

Hero – Platinum

Follow this guide!

The Father – Bronze

This trophy is story related.

The Shadow – Bronze

– Complete level ‘The Shadow’

This trophy is story related.

Deniable – Bronze

– In ‘The Shadow’, operate without raising an alarm or disabling the security mainframe

There are a few ways you can go about earning this. You can sneak and disable all of the alarms. Get to the alarms and kill everyone before they can set them off or a combination of both. There are only 4 alarms in the level. They are tall computer stations with an orange screen (pictured below).Alarm station

To hack an alarm put the cross hairs on the alarm and activate OWL when the computer icon shows up. Once they are hacked, the screen will turn blue and be disabled permanently. Once you initiate a firefight near one of these the enemy will always run straight for it to activate it, so be quick when killing them.

The second part is to not deactivate the Security Mainframe, which is pictured below.Security Mainframe

That will be an optional objective labeled “Objective P”. Do not deactivate it, just run passed it and go up to the next floor to complete “Objective L”. Once “L” is complete the trophy will pop. This can be done on any difficulty.

New Shadow – Bronze

– In ‘The Savior’, complete the mission without being spotted

This is done in Chapter 10. You cannot be spotted by guards, cameras, or civilians. If you come to close to a civilian they will run and alert a guard, so you will be spotted. Although you’re invisible, the security cameras can still see you so stay out of the red grid they project. This can be done on any difficulty. As soon as you set up the rifle the trophy will pop.

Violence is the answer? – Bronze

– In ‘The Savior’, kill 20 soldiers and still complete the mission

This is done in Chapter 10. There will be 5 enemies in the first part of the mission, kill them before going outside. Once you’re outside, turn off the cameras for both the lower and higher tiers, pick up the sniper rifle and then start killing everyone. You’ll have 3 minutes to get the remaining 15 kills. Enemies will spawn all over the map so you’ll have to run around from area to area to get kills. When you have about 35 seconds left, you’ll want to head to the sniping location. The trophy will pop after you assassinate Sinclair.

The Savior – Gold

– Complete level ‘The Savior’ and prevent the escalation of a new war

This trophy is story related.

Outsmarted – Bronze

– In singleplayer, get a quadruple kill with a single Frag Grenade

This can easily be done towards the end of mission 3 in the area where the sun is burning the Helghast. There will be an elevator that comes down full of enemies. Once you see the elevator coming down cook the grenade for a second or two and throw it in as soon as the doors open. This can be done on any difficulty.

Outgunned – Silver

– In singleplayer, kill 6 Helghast with headshots within a single adrenaline rush

The best place to earn this trophy is in Chapter 9 toward the end. Take out all the enemies in the room just before Stahl’s Spire and go to the back left of the room by the door. Wait for the door to open and as soon as it does use the OWL’s Stun ability and press left on the D-Pad to activate the adrenaline rush. Now, just go through all the enemies in the head. There will be 6 that come through the door. This can be done on any difficulty.

Outmaneuvered – Bronze

– In singleplayer, kill 5 Helghast with gunfire while ziplining

You will need to kill 5 enemies while ziplining with your OWL. You don’t have to kill 5 in one go either, it can be 5 over the course of a playthrough. Here is an example of what you need to do.

Elite Shadow Marshal – Gold

– Complete all missions on Hard difficulty

This game isn’t that difficult on Hard. You will have to take your time and stay behind cover during fire fights, but there are also a few other things you can do to make this easier. OWL will be very critical in helping you complete Hard difficulty. It can attack, stun, and revive you. It’s attack ability isn’t very effective but when it is attacking, the enemies will turn away from you to focus on the OWL giving you an opportunity to take out the distracted enemies. Another thing is the Scan ability. Make sure to spam the Scan, it will reveal the enemy positions giving you a better idea on how to proceed. One other thing is to make sure you always have Adrenaline packs. They can help you out of a tight spot if you’re low on health or if you die the OWL can revive you with it.

Conscientious Killer – Bronze

– Complete the campaign on any difficulty without shooting any civilians

There are a few chapters that will have civilians scattered throughout them. They are easy to identify and when the shooting starts they will flee. Nothing too difficult here, just be careful when firing your weapon around them and don’t use explosives when they are near.

Shadows Cannot Be Killed – Silver

– Complete the campaign on any difficulty without dying

This won’t be as hard as you may think! Just before you are about to die you have a small window where you can press the Options button and select “Restart Checkpoint”. If you are fast enough it won’t count the death. There is a way to keep track of your deaths as well. In the Main Menu go to “Chapter Select”, choose a chapter and from there the game breaks down the chapter into sections. It will give you stats for each individual section of a chapter. This does not need to be completed in one full playthrough. You can skip around chapters and chapter sections only playing the ones that you need to complete with no deaths. Being revived by the OWL still counts as a death as well.

Gatherer – Bronze

– Find 50% of the collectibles in the campaign

See the trophy The Knowledge for more details.

The knowledge – Silver

– Find all collectibles in the campaign

There are 98 collectibles total in the game. The game will automatically save when you pick one up. From the Main Menu go to “Collectibles” and you can see which ones you have collected. In the “Chapter Select” screen the game will tell you how many you have for each chapter. There are 35 Audiologs, 35 Comic Book Pages, 19 Dossiers and 9 Newspapers.

Tourist – Bronze

– Complete a match on every multiplayer map

There are 10 multiplayer maps. All you need to do here is play game on each one. The game counts a map as played as soon as the match starts, so you don’t have to complete the full match to check off a map. In the Mulitplayer Menu go to “My Career” and then press R1 to go to the “Challenges” tab. Under the “Online Play” you can check what maps you have played on.

  1. The Divide
  2. The Spire
  3. The Park
  4. The Station
  5. The Wall
  6. The Penthouse
  7. The Factory
  8. The Forest
  9. The Remains
  10. The Slums

Dominator – Silver

– Win a match on every multiplayer map

You will need to be on the winning team on all 10 maps. In the Mulitplayer Menu go to “My Career” and then press R1 to go to the “Challenges” tab. Under the “Online Play” you can check what maps you have won on.

On Your Way – Silver

– Complete 200 challenges

See the trophy Mulitplayer Elite for more details.

Multiplayer Elite – Gold

– Complete 400 challenges

There are 1,595 total challenges in multiplayer. You’ll complete these without even realizing it. There are challenges for doing almost everything in multiplayer. To view all of the challenges go to the Multiplayer Menu and then to “My Career” and press R1 to go over to the “Challenges” tab.

Million Points – Gold

– Get a total of 1,000,000 points in multiplayer

You earn points for getting kills, completing objectives, reviving teammates, etc. This trophy will take a long time to earn but you’ll unlock it as you play toward Jack Of All Trades trophy.

Scout – Bronze

See the trophy Jack Of All Trades for more details.

Support – Bronze

Assault – Bronze

– Max out any upgradable Assault ability

Jack Of All Trades – Gold

– Max out all upgradable abilities

This will more than likely be the most time consuming trophy of the game for you. Each class has its own upgrades that you need to level up. Go to the Mulitplayer Menu, then to “My Career” and press R1 to go over to the “Abilities” tab to check your progress on maxing out the upgrades. The Scout class has 3 upgrades, the Assault class has 3 upgrades and the Support class has 5 upgrades.

Weapons Specialist – Gold

– Unlock all attachments for all weapons

Each class has its own set of weapons. Each of those weapons all have attachments that are unlocked by completing challenges. Just about all of these challenges are related to killing enemies. You can view what attachments are available for each weapon by going to the Multiplayer Menu, then to “My Career” and press R1 to go over to the “Weapons” tab. Here, the weapons are separated by their class. You’ll have to select each individual weapon to see its attachments and challenges. There are 24 Scout attachments, 25 Assault attachments, 17 Support attachments and 4 attachments for weapons that can be used for all classes (Shared).

Decorated – Silver

– Earn a total of 500 accolades

Accolades are ribbons that are awarded for completing certain objectives during a match, which are awarded at the end of the match. Like the the Multiplayer Elite trophy, you should earn these without even trying too hard for them. Earning multiple of the same accolade will still count toward the 500. You’ll more than likely earn this on your way towards the Jack Of All Trades trophy.
