Step 1: beat the story on easy difficulty, combat trophies
This step is easy. Play the story on easy difficulty and have fun. Along the way, you must try to activate all the radio towers to discover the map completely. This will make it easier to find collectibles later.
Maps for all collectible locations are available in the general store after activating the radio towers. Buy these maps ASAP.
Get the losable trophy Unheard as soon as you can. This could also come naturally without even trying. Before doing this, you should also take a closer look at: I love the boom, Toxophilitis. These two can get a little trickier if you don’t do them right away. The more outposts you liberate, the fewer enemies there will be and story missions will not be playable again. So you should definitely take care of the combat stuff from the start!
Some skills require certain combat actions to be unlocked. Take care of the following requirements:
- Press X (PS3) / A (Xbox 360) to jump on an enemy from below and kill them – Death from Above skill required (x1)
- Click R3 / Right Stick to kill an enemy from above on a scalable ledge – Death from Below skill required (x1)
- Liberate outpost without being detected (x2)
Also be careful with I never saw it coming. This trophy is pretty tricky if you don’t do it during one of the main story missions. A good place to get it so early is in the sixth mission “The Call of Medusa”.
Step 2: collectibles, side missions, abilities, various trophies
Once the story is over, you will enter free roam mode and have a chance to complete all the things you didn’t do before.
Complete all remaining Miscellaneous / Combat-related Trophies while capturing the Outposts.
After activating all the radio towers, get the collectible maps from the general store and collect 60 relics, 20 letters, and 20 memory cards.
Most of the side quests can be ignored. Play at least one of each mission and complete 3 “Supply Drop” and 3 “Wanted Dead” missions to unlock the “Adrenaline Rush” and “Dead Maker” abilities.
Once done, you should be able to buy all the skills. If you still need XP, you can keep doing side quests.
Lost Letter – Collect 20
Memory Card – Collect 20
Relic – Collect 60
Outpost – Liberate 34
Radio Tower: Activate 9 (18 recommended to uncover the map)

Now that you know how the game works, it’s time to beat all six co-op maps. This can be done online or offline. You get a trophy for every map you complete.
