    01.)                    INTRODUCTION                                 G0100
    Welcome to the 'Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker' Trophies/Achievements Guide for
    the Playstation 3/Xbox 360. At least 3 of these require you to play online, and
    a regular connection to PSN/XBL is probably required to unlock at least one of
    The VITA is supposed to have this game in the future as well, and the VITA has
    trophies, yet I am unsure if they kept all the trophies the same.
    Suggestions, comments or errors - email me about it. Enjoy!
    02.)                    BASICS                                       G0200
    Some trophies/achievements are automatically completed by simply playing the
    game. Others require some other tasks you normally would never do.
    I do not go into details for the missions since it would take a lot of effort
    and transform this into an S-rank mission guide.
    03.)                    TROPHIES/ACHIEVEMENTS                        G0300
    Title: Vic Boss (Platinum)
    Description: Obtained every trophy.
    Obtained: This is the platinum trophy that requires all other trophies first.
    Note: PS3 only!
    Title: An Army Without Borders (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Cleared Prologue: An Army Without Borders.       
    Obtained: Story-line related. Continue completing MAIN OPS missions.
    Title: A Country Without An Army (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Cleared Chapter 1: A Country Without An Army.    
    Obtained: Story-line related. Continue completing MAIN OPS missions.
    Title: The Phantom Hero (Bronze)(10)  
    Description: Cleared Chapter 2: The Phantom Hero.     
    Obtained: Story-line related. Continue completing MAIN OPS missions.
    Title: A Nation Reborn (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Cleared Chapter 3: A Nation Reborn.      
    Obtained: Story-line related. Continue completing MAIN OPS missions.
    Title: Basilisk Eater (Bronze)(30)
    Description: Defeated Pupa, Chrysalis, Cocoon, Peace Walker.          
    Obtained: Story-line related. You will get this after finishing the Peace
              Walker 2 battle which only comes after defeating the other AIs.
    Title: The Illusion of Peace (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Cleared Chapter 4: The Illusion of Peace.        
    Obtained: Story-line related. Continue completing MAIN OPS missions.
    Title: Launched ZEKE (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Complete Metal Gear ZEKE.
    Obtained: Launching Zeke is pretty much part of the storyline since you need to
              do that to complete the last chapter. Once you have started AI part
              collecting you will end up with enough parts of the four main parts.
              Keep battling the AIs to get more of these if necessary. II and
              Custom count the same way. You also need at least three optional
              parts to launch Zeke: Pupa's Jet Pack and Chrysalis's Radome and
              Railgun. The armor Cocoon drops is not required (I know this because
              the thing never dropped for me, ever). These drops are random and
              take a while to complete. The best way is not to damage the unit you
              want and try to only shoot down the AI pod. Huey will inform you when
              you are ready to launch and the trophy will pop.
    Title: Outer Heaven (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Cleared Chapter 5: Outer Heaven.
    Obtained: Story-line related. Just in case you need help to continue here, play
              the escape missions that come along (you have to play other EX OPS
              inbetween to get the next escape mission) until you complete Z's
              escape 6. Launch Metal Gear ZEKE, then play another EX OPS mission and
              Miller should tell you that Z. escaped but does not know where to find
              him this time. Head to EX OPS 001 to find him upstairs and to start
              the next mission. Finish that and Chapter 5 is almost done.
    Title: Steel Eater (Silver)(50)
    Description: Defeated all AI weapons.
    Obtained: Complete the MAIN OPS first to unlock EX OPS 112 through 120 (you may
              have to clear some other EX OPS first, not sure). Completing those
              nets you the trophy. I suggest doing a lot of these online to make
              them easier at first. You can easily defeat them on your own later
              with better weapons and equipment though, EX OPS 119 is a little
              tough on your own but unlocks something great when S-ranked.
    Title: Monster Hunter (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Cleared all hunting quests.
    Obtained: Hunting Quests are the monsters in EXTRA OPS 121 through 128. You
              just need to finish them regardless or rank. They are very easy
              with high equipment such as rockets, but since you will try to S-
              rank them anyway I think you will get this naturally. CO-OP makes
              these missions so much easier since there is only one big guy vs up
              to four of you, and the later missions do not even have the annoying
              raptors to distract you. These quests also drop random stuff by the
              way thus replaying them often will be required, but just beating it
              once unlocks the trophy.
    Title: MAIN OPS All Rank A (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Cleared all MAIN OPS at Rank A or higher.
    Obtained: As the description says, you need at least an A on the Main Ops
              missions. Try for an S at the same time since there is another
              trophy for it, and getting As is actually quie easy in the game.
    Title: MAIN OPS All Rank S (Silver)(30)
    Description: Cleared all MAIN OPS at Rank S.  
    Obtained: As the description says, you need at least an S on the Main Ops
              missions. This sounds daunting at first but is actually not that bad
              later in the game when you have better equipment. For most missions
              you do not want to get detected thus you want the Sneaking Suit. No
              detection + no kills + fast time tends to get an S.
              There is the issue with the QT during the cutscenes. You can skip all
              scenes but the QT parts, yet you can often shorten them to only the
              part where you need to input the QT commands. I have also once
              purposely screwed up the one where you need to shoot down the AI's
              grabber only got 8/10 but then I still got an S, yet I think for the
              one where you need to beat the guards to grab the keycard must be done
              perfectly. The toughest one is when fighting The Boss since the QT can
              be fast. You probably have to play these several times. The truck
              picking also counts as QT so pick the right one straight away when
              going for an S rank!
              For the AI battles you just want to be super quick and make sure you
              enter the pod to destroy it. Later in the game you can smack rockets
              at it and the fights will be over so quickly, even the last couple of
              missions are going to be an easy S.
              I suggest not playing these missions online for S- ranking them. The
              only one you might want to try are Peace Walker and Zeke but then you
              will maybe get some other people not skipping the cutscenes and it can
              be very annoying.
    Title: EXTRA OPS All Cleared (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Cleared all EXTRA OPS missions.
    Obtained: Just clear all Extra Ops with any rating. I think most people will
              have this without getting As and Ss since the beginning soldiers can
              only do so much. Do not bother A/S ranking them until you are ready
              since it is a waste of time. The POW mission alone would drive me
              crazy so I whopped out a machine gun to mow the guards down first,
              then later come back with a 5-star tranq gun and bandana to no worry
              about anything.
    Title: EXTRA OPS All Rank A (Bronze)(30)
    Description: Cleared all EXTRA OPS missions at Rank A or higher.
    Obtained: Getting As is pretty common. Sneaking missions give you an automatic
              A or lower if raise an alarm, and you cannot kill anyone either. The
              other thing to watch out for is times. See the S-rank trophy for more
    Title: EXTRA OPS All Rank S (Silver)(50)
    Description: Cleared all EXTRA OPS missions at Rank S.        
    Obtained: Getting all S grades is going to take some time. It would be better
              to have a fully detailed S-rank guide for this. Instead here is a
              quick rundown of what you need to do:
              * Do not raise alerts in all but the AI, vehicle/tank/chopper or 
                monster missions. This will automatically lower your grade to A.
                There are a few expections where you can be seen, like base
                defense. I think you will know which missions I mean.
              * Do not kill anyone, not even in the vehicle/tank/chopper missions.
                Take out the AI by going into the pod. Even for base defense,
                pooyan, item recovery etc, do not kill anyone! (For some missions
                with C4 you might need to move people out of the way)
              * Do not destroy the tanks, armored vehicles or choppers/bombers. The
                driver/pilot always needs to be tranqed. Destroying these counts
                as a kill even though the number will still be 0 at the debriefing.
              * Do not kill any dinos, neither the big dude nor small critters!
              * Do NOT use the stealth suite. It will lower it to A automatically
                (the game will tell you about it at the debriefing)
              * Do NOT use battle cries that have a special effect like regenerate
                health. I think you might want to hold off battle cries all together
                but then again I had some appear in multiplayer and still got an S.
                That also means not have a 'Sidekick' soldier in COOP since he
                will automatically make comms based on other players' actions.
              * Do not play online with random people because they will most like
                screw up your tactics. You CAN and sometimes SHOULD play the AI and
                Peace Walker missions since they only require you to be fast, and
                you are much stronger against these guys in a team. I think
                everyone online knows how to beat them, although I have some seen
                some people hiding under Cocoon for some reason. Nevertheless, the
                times are generous for these battles.
              Soooooo, what is the best way to approach this?
              * Have the highest level rank of the weapons and items lised and
                used, 'nuff said really. This just makes sense but you can always
                try with lower weapons and get more frustrated. For example, using
                a Level 4 rocket launcher is ultimately less damaging then the
                Level 5, resulting in longer times to beat the level and thus maybe
                costing you that S rank.
              * Always tranq or fulton people, having a 5-star Mk.22 is a must and
                you want the compressor at level 3 (this happens naturally as you
                will use this gun A LOT) to last for a long mission. The game was
                pretty much just designed to only reward AI weapon destruction,
                nothing else. A few missions require machine guns with recoil
                reduction to gain an advantage but you should have plenty of
                those as your research progresses.
              * Smoke grenades are your best friend. For the vehicle missions you
                always want to stay in smoke for any kind of action since the
                enemy will never spot you in it, no matter what you do (snake
                beater, you). For missions where backup spawn around you this is
                vital since they will otherwise spot you from miles away. Even
                launching a fulton rocket from the other side of the map will alert
                the vehicle turned the opposite way!
              * Soliton Radar makes you see the enemy view a la MGS radars. This
                should be upgraded fully and is super helpful for the ghost
                missions alone, but also makes it spot enemies in sneaking missions
                among others.
              * Fulton rockets are your best friend for getting rid of enemies in
                those vehicle/tank/chopper battles. There are ways through the
                mission without it but frankly it will never be as easy as these to
                remove sentries from the battle field. Watch out though, enemies
                can hear this even though it sounds super silent. Stand in smoke to
                stay hidden as the source.
              * Bandana is require to keep your fulton rockets and other ammo full
                without using a supply marker (you cannot refill fulton rockets and
                will run out way to quickly). The bandana makes you vulnerable to
                fire so you have to switch regularly if anyone attacks you.
              * NVG makes you see in smoke grenades although I found it a little
                tricky to aim the Mk.22 with it. Still, you can stand in smoke and
                know when the enemy approaches you.
              * PTRS1941 is the best weapon against choppers. It takes out their
                shield and makes the pilot pop out before all the guards are gone
                from the battlefield. This saves tons of time. How to keep the
                guards at bay? Hold them up while they were in smoke, they will
                lie down on the floor and ignore anything that goes on around the
                battlefield unless they get touched by the enemy vehicle/tank,
                rockets or bombs. One guard will also raise the others in that
              * Health stuff like Rations and Future Curry is requires for some of
                these battles, and Mate would also be useful for the Monster Hunter
                stuff. If you are knocked out you might just die and it will take
                a lot of time to recover too. Use these mate regularly if you are
                below half-way. The monsters take a lot of time to put to sleep.
              * Stun grenades are kind of useful for the monsters but you can also
                make it without. If you play with others then one can throw the
                stun grenades and give you an easier time to take it out, but by
                myself I found it waste too much time. I also did not like how the
                screen always makes me dizzy after it explodes and you need to be
                careful where you throw it. Just tranq the guy and evade its
                attacks. If everyone shoots sleep-inducing stuff then it will go
                so much faster anyway.
              * Sleep grenades: I have used the these for chopper missions instead
                of holding up the group but then you have to make sure to be quick
                about the pilot since they wake up soon. Possible for low skull
                levels I suppose, if you really hate holding up. You can always
                bring these along in case somebody decides to get up after being
                hit (but you should bring your Mk.22 as well).
              * Supply Marker (Thrown) is required if you do not have the bandana,
                and you have to use it quite a lot then so the time might be wasted
                on waiting for the drop but if you are good you can get this done
                in advance and only pick up when needed. There is no penalty for
                how many supply crates you request. I needed these on some
                missions to recover health, such as Rex, since he pummeled me
                quite a lot. There is plenty of time to finish him and still use
                the markers.
              * Battle Suit w/ Armor is the strongest armor in the game and is ONLY
                dropped during Outer Op missions 'Capture Enemy Base' 03 to 06.
                These are not guaranteed drops but the more difficult one has a high
                chance to drop it. As you get better combat guys, capture vehicles
                and have a powerful Zeke at your disposal these missions can
                regularly be beaten (sure, some people will die and vehicles will
                get destroyed, but Zeke will usually always make it in some
                There is also a way that you can save your game, check the results
                of Outer Ops and if you did not make it (well) reload to try again.
                The result should be different. You can do the fighting missions
                without this suit but it is just much better to have.
                As a side note, some people say the naked uniform is better for
                being more maneuverable. Whereas the reason behind it is true, I
                would not recommend this unless you are quite good at the game
                already, because one mauling in the monster hunter missions could
                cost your life if you are not equipping rations at the same time.
              * Speed: For non-battle missions you should try to run through the
                mission and avoid any sentries. It is also faster to hold up units
                rather than shoot them with the Mk.22. Just make sure they do not
                notice you on their patrol (thus I am talking about those scouts in
                the forest who can often just be ignored staring into the woods but
                be careful of the snipers as their vision on the radar is not shown
    Title: Gives me infinite ammo  (Bronze)(30)
    Description: Acquired Infinity Bandana. Never worry about running out of
                 bullets ever again.
    Obtained: S-Rank EXTRA OPS 119. You also need Combat rank 88 and R&D level 88
              before you can research it. S-Ranking EX OPS 119 is a thousand times
              easier with COOP partners and I suggest you go online to play this
              instead. The time is super generous and I never got anything lower
              than S when playing online. You will not get trapped underneath it
              like in the single player mode, it will never get close to launching
              its nuke and most of you should have players with bandana already
              helping you out. If you get unlucky and only have newbies join your
              game then I suppose it could end in disaster but just having more
              cannon fodder for Peace Walker to deal with helps so much in blasting
              it with rockets from the other persons's ends.
    Title: Stealth camouflage (Silver)(30)
    Description: Acquired stealth camouflage. Never worry about being detected ever
    Obtained: S-Rank EXTRA OPS 050. This is not so hard. With the NVG or Soliton
              Radar you can identify all enemies on for miles away as well as know
              their vision range. I would suggest having these upgraded fully
              first, and you need to have Intel 88 plus R&D 88 to get the Stealth
              researched anyway so it can be a while. During the mission, run past
              many people, Mk.22 tranq them from afar and you should be fine. The
              time can be tight but nevertheless it is manageable. I do not think
              there is need to tell you that 
    Title: Big Boss (Gold)(50)
    Description: Cleared all MAIN OPS and EXTRA OPS missions at Rank S.   
    Obtained: This is a combination of the Main Ops and Ex Ops trophies so if you
              finish both of these then this trophy will come up as well.
    Title: Fulton Recovery Veteran (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Reached 300 Fulton recoveries.   
    Obtained: Many missions require you to fulton recover enemies and you best do
              so to obtain more members joining your main base. By the time you try
              to S-rank vehicle missions you should have this already, but if not
              then you will definitely get this then.
    Title: Hold-Up Artist (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Reached 100 hold-ups.    
    Obtained: This one is not so natural. You have a few hold-up missions and then
              some S-ranking would highly benefit of you holding up enemies to
              concentrate on the chopper, but if you still need some after doing
              all those you can just replay the hold-up missions.
    Title: Lethal Enforcer (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Reached 100 kills.       
    Obtained: You will do more killing in the early parts of the game but probably
              also plenty in those tank/vehicle missions until you have better
              equipment. This means you should get this naturally but then
              you can also go berserk on some missions to reach this quickly.
    Title: Stun Specialist (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Reached at least 100 stun attacks or sleep-inducing attacks.     
    Obtained: If, like most people, you notice that the Mk.22 is the way to get
              good ranks then you can get this soon. Stuns are more common in VS
    Title: Costume Collector (Bronze)(30)
    Description: Obtained every costume.
    There are many costumes that come over the course of the game, including rank-
    related mission rewards. Here is a complete list (not listing the ones you have
    by default):
     T.Stripe: MAIN OPS - Puruse Amanda (Banana Fruta De Oro)
     Auscam: MAIN OPS - Destroy the Barricade (Aldea Los Despiertos)
     Snake: MAIN OPS - Travel to Cloud Forest (Selva del la Leche: Hillside)
     Sneaking: Complete MAIN OPS - Attack Chopper Battle: MI-24A
     Battle: Complete MAIN OPS - Peace Walker Battle
     Tuxedo: Complete MAIN OPS - Peace Walker Battle 3
     T-Shirt: EXTRA OPS 001 (upstairs)
     Commando: Complete EXTRA OPS 009
     Patrolman: Complete EXTRA OPS 011
     Leaf: S-Rank EXTRA OPS 014.
     Russian Soldier: Complete EXTRA OPS 024
     Escort: Complete EXTRA OPS 027
     Splitter: EXTRA OPS 029 (Playa del Alpa)
     Squares: EXTA OPS 030 (Banana Fruta De Oro)

     Female POW: Complete EXTRA OPS 055
     Mechanic: Complete EXTRA OPS 066
     Scout: Complete EXTRA OPS 061
     Stench: S-Rank EXTRA OPS 061
     Neo-Moss: EXTRA OPS 062 - Use codec (not comms!) near the first ghost in until
               you hear "This is The End" then complete the mission. I suggest the
               Stealth Suit so the ghost cannot spot you and you can just keep
               trying. Switch your controls to have the codec on a single button,
               start CPR on the guard and keep spamming the codec button until you
               get this message (you might miss it with lots of talking going on at
               the same time. If it did not work, restart the mission straight
               away. Others might tell you of other ways to get this (maybe the PSP
               game had this for just completing the mission) yet this will surely
               give you the camo.
     Amanda: S-Rank EXTRA OPS 067
     Miller: S-Rank EXTRA OPS 068
     Rathalos: S-Rank EXTRA OPS 121 or 122 (not both!)

     Bikini: Complete all MAIN OPS and EXTRA OPS
     Battle w/ Helmet: OUTER OPS Capture Enemy Base 03, 04, 05 or 06 (random drop)
    Title: Hideo Kojima (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Recruited Hideo Kojima.  
    Obtained: This is part of another trophy (Special Staff Recruiter) but if you
              are just interested in this one, find him in the truck with plates
              63284 at the end of MAIN OPS - Infiltrate Crater Base.
    Title: Special Staff Recruiter (Silver)(20)
    Description: Assembled all special staff members.
    Obtained: This requires to have obtained four special characters. Only one has
              a name and the others have special jobs in their description. I am
              not sure you actually need to keep them because all but one kind of
              suck, but I would leave them kept away in your trading room or
              something just in case until you get the trophy. Here are the four
              people you need to find:
      Hideo Kojima: MAIN OPS - Infiltrate Crater Base, search the 63284 truck for 
                    him (and you always re-fetch him if you fired him for some
                    reason. This dude is a keeper though.
      Actress: MAIN OPS - Travel to the Mine Base. Go up the ladder on the first
               building and slightly fall off the roof on the other side (where
               there is a tiny dead end). You should hold onto the side of the
               building automatically unless you did it too fast, then shimmy
               left until you find the spot with the POW. Raise yourself up and
               fulton recover her.
      New Voice Actor: MAIN OPS - Zadornov Search 1, a random POW. Fulton all or
                       keep trying until you find the right one.
      Veteran Voice Actor: MAIN OPS - Zadornov Search 5, the only POW in the area.
               After you find the fourth one this should pop up when returning to
               the staff menu.
    Title: Mech Catcher (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Captured a mech.         
    Obtained: Simply finish a mission of either a tank battle, armored vehicle or
              chopper by not destroying it and instead taking out the driver/pilot.
              To get this done, get rid of all reinforcements first. If you were
              spotted until this point you have to damage the vehicle a certain
              amount for the driver to pop out. Tranq him to end the mission and
              get the unit. For choppers you can destroy the windshield to have the
              pilot pop out quicker. On your way to S-ranking these missions you
              have to capture all of them, so this would kind of be a very early
              step in that direction yet you will feel like you accomplished a
              monster task early in the game (which seems like nothing later on).
    Title: Paz's Thoughts (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Read all of Paz's diary.
    Obtained: Paz's 10 diary tapes can be found in AI pods of the EXTRA OPS AIs
              (112 through 119). After entering the pod you can move between the
              four sides and at one point you will given the Triangle command
              briefly. You kind of want to spam the button whenever you move around
              to make sure you get the diary tape. If you destroyed too many parts
              of the AI then moving around might be hindered. Keep this for late in
              the game. With a good rocket launcher you can take down Pupa II
              within 2 minutes (bandana, battle suit w/ helmet and make sure you do
              not get fried!). Each one should give you a tape unless you killed
              off too many AI boards and cannot move to the location of the tape.
              It took me 30 minutes to do this later in the game, and I got Pupa
              heads at the same time. You also have to actually READ all the tapes
              to get the trophy. This is done by going to the data files and then
              letting it play or skipping through it. Either way, after reading
              them all (no more !s) you will get the trophy. Additionally, you can
              also get these from multiplayer games. The player in the pod will
              always take the one needed and does not care about its peers. If you
              already have the 1st one and another player picks it up then you do
              not benefit from it. It also seems that if you got a higher up one in
              this way, e.g. 7, and then later get them on your own and reached 6,
              the next one you get is also going to be 7 again. In a way you hardly
              benefit from this unless maybe you get all tapes form coop games, and
              this takes a lot longer.
    Title: Huey's Thoughts (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Read Huey's love letter.
    Obtained: After Huey joins your team he will give you a letter. Look for it
              in the R&D section at mother base under the Other section. Read it to
              get a funny message and the trophy.
    Title: Strangelove's Thoughts (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Read all of Strangelove's memoirs.       
    Obtained: After Chapter 5 is complete, re-play one of the AI battles. While in
              the pod and move around between boards you can get the Triangle
              command for picking up the tape. There are 3 tapes in total. Later
              in the game you can finish Pupa within 1~2 minutes to get these, but
              you also wait with S-ranking this mission after Chapter 5 to kill
              two birds in one stone. If you destroyed too many AI boards is may be
              tricky to move between sides so try not to (and only aim for the AI
              pod in the battle).
    Title: CQC Six Shot (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Performed CQC six times in a row.
    Obtained: You can get this in Recruiting but the mission is not always
              available. An alternative strategy is to play EXTRA OPS 024 and wait
              for the guys to come out from the tunnel (do not scare some of them
              away by approaching them too quickly) and CQC then hell out of the
              group. This can be annoying since it depends on the enemy locations
              more than your skill. You should know how to do successive CQCs from
              the beginning tutorial, i.e. throw them towards the others else you
              will not get a chance for another nearby guy/gal.
              Here is yet another alternative strategy submitted by Damthiel:
              "Start up the story mission "Infiltrate the Underground Base" and
              right at the start there's a group of 6 or 7 to your right, on the
              bottom floor. Toss a smoke grenade right into the middle of them, flip
              over the rail and drop down. Go to the guy at the back of the group
              (he's kind of separated out) and CQC throw him *towards* the group,
              which should initiate the combo if you get him close enough. Since
              it's right at the beginning it's really quick to restart if you mess
    Title: Leap of Faith (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Performed a Leap of Faith.
    Obtained: A homage to Assassin's Creed, play MAIN OPS - Travel to the Mine Base
              and get on the building at the northeast side (by jumping over the gap
              from the west building). Stand at the east side where you see some
              bird crap, and then press Triangle to perform a Leap of Faith. You
              also get an item below.
    Title: I feel... safe (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Wearing a cardboard box gives you that feeling of inner peace.
    Obtained: Just equip any cardboard box (I think the assassin's box does not
              count although I am interested to know if it does). Easy and if you
              play any COOP missions with the rescue box researched you should be
              getting this anyway.
    Title: Indirect Attack (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Attacked enemy soldiers by blowing up an oil drum or truck (single
                 player only).
    Obtained: You have a few opportunities for this but should not try for this
              actively because EXTRA OPS 056 requires you to do this. Shoot the
              barrel and you will almost always take out one of the guards with it,
              although for that mission you have to perform a little better to
              win (the trophy will unlock nevertheless).
    Title: OUTER OPS Sortie (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Carried out a mission in OUTER OPS.      
    Obtained: As soon as Outer Ops is available you are probably itchy to try and
              send out some troops. As soon as your first mission is done you will
              get this trophy (it does not even matter if you beat it but it is
              quite hard to fail the first ones unless you only send one guy...)
    Title: Elite Forces (Silver)(30)
    Description: Cleared 'Capture the Enemy Base 06' in OUTER OPS using only
    Obtained: Not as hard as it sounds since the indicator of your forces strength
              is misleading. Wait for high rank units of course, since anything
              else will just die. 9999 health, almost all at the top for the other
              abilities. Next you must have M47, and Kampfpistole. If they come
              back dead then you could try to reload (save before you check the
              result, it can be altered). If only one makes it back you made it,
              but with the above you should not have any problems. It has to be
              done late in the game though.
    Title: Paz Mania (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Obtained Rank S on a date with Paz.      
    Obtained: This requires a lot of comm calls to raise her affinity to 200. Some
              people also say you need the camera, play music on the Walkman and
              wear the tuxedo but I am not sure it matters. Wear the Tuxedo
              nonetheless, and you must take along the Love Box and prepare a lot
              of comm calls:
               Don't die on me.
               Good luck.
               Good to have you.
               I knew you had it in you!!
               I like it!
               I'm with ya.
               Kept you waiting, huh?
               Nice one!
               Not bad!
               Sorry...I just...
               You can do this
              These all raise the affinity  and I think you can even repeat the
              same one over and over to get it done. Each heart should give you 10
              points, thus counting 20 times is enough. Make sure you do not spam
              the comms too fast because they will not be recognized by her. The
              camera can be used to raise it too, and there is an indicator if she
              has 200 affinity when she say something about being embarrassed. When
              you think it is enough, equip the love box to finish the mission.
              By the way, after this you can view the 3D models in the staff menu
              and see all females in their underwear. Interesting. If this did not
              work you may have to redo the mission and yet again get an S-rank. It
              has been said there are some complications with it.
    Title: Kaz Mania (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Obtained Rank S on a date with Kaz.      
              This requires a few comm calls to raise his affinity to 100. Wear the
              tuxedo or even better the bathing suit, bring along the love box and
              then prepare these comm calls:
               Don't die on me.
               Good luck.
               Good to have you.
               I knew you had it in you!!
               I like it!
               I'm with ya.
               Kept you waiting, huh?
               Nice one!
               Not bad!
               Sorry...I just...
               You can do this
              During the mission you can also CQC him (he also has an item you get
              by checking his sleeping body). He loves that too. After enough comm
              calls (each heart is 10 points), equip the love box to end the
              mission. Much easier than the Paz mission by the way.
    Title: That looks tasty! (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Nicely cooked a ration. 
    Obtained: There are two mission types with the fire pit, either the Pooyan
              missions or the Monster Hunter missions. Equip a ration and press
              Triangle at the pit. Let it roast a few rounds until it turns
              brown and then press Triangle again. If you did it too early you get
              a rare ration, if you do it too late you get a burnt ration. You want
              it well done. All three types count towards your recovery item
              section by the way, and all levels (1 through 5) thus there is plenty
              of roasting to do if you want to raise your mother base levels.
    Title: Divine Wind (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Collected a soldier using a divine wind.
    Obtained: For many this is the hardest trophy besides Vic Vos. It mainly
              requires luck. Complete EX OPS 121 or 122 for a small chance to get
              the Rathalos Wing to drop. The chances are something like 3/100 for
              just killing it, and people claim you can raise this by taking off its
              tail, destroying the spikes on both wings and the spikes at its neck.
              They also claim tranqing it rather than killing it will help raise
              chances to up to 30 percent with a combination of the other parts I
              mentioned above, and that EX OPS 122 is slightly better. For all of
              the above, I do not believe it because trying this long enough I never
              had a drop. One would think a 30% chance yields results after 10+
              attempts. What I did instead, use the M47+bandana (also wear the
              battle suit [w/ helmet] to survive) and kill the guy in 1 minute. Try
              this often enough and your time wasted on the destroying+ tranqing is
              around the same.
              I have also had this theory about the chances for a drop being high
              after just starting up your game. Some games use this calculation and
              people reporting them getting it on the first try is rather lucky.
              Some people agree although some people say Monster Hunter is just so
              random in luck. Either way, this can take a long time but do not give
              up even if it seems hopeless.
              Once you get the wing, you also need to recruit an R&D member with
              the Japanese Patriot skill (POW in EX OPS 049) and your R&D team must
              be at 89.
              Once you HAVE the gun, the next part is easy: bring it along any
              mission where you can kill people and start shooting. Once every few
              shots there will be a massive whirlwind that takes out a unit a la
              fulton. Congratulations!
              There is a simpler method to get the trophy (but not the musket) by
              borrowing another players musket in COOP, but of course it does
              require a coop member to have and bring the musket to a mission,
              something you have to arrange somehow:
              "You can actually get "boosted" to get this trophy, I did it for
              someone else. If one player has the musket, you can start a co-op
              mission with someone else, then activate a "co-op in" (when your
              player ring turns yellow). With the co-op in, you can hold R2 + the
              directional pad (on the PS3 controller) to access the other player's
              equipment, allowing a person who doesn't have a musket to equip one
              (assuming the player that does have the musket has it in their current
    Title: You have far too many Game Overs (Bronze) 
    Description: Reached 50 or more game overs.
    Obtained: Not hard to get, although it personally took me until late in the
              game to reach 50. Often sneaking missions is where you are caught
              causing instant game overs, or you die in battles by yourself. I
              suggest not trying this one too hard as there will be plenty of game
    Noted: Called 'Failed again, did you?' on the Xbox 360.
    Title: Don't you have anything else to do with your time? (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Rolled 100 times or more in a single mission.
    Obtained: Really boring. Pick any mission that has nothing to fear in an
              area, like the prologue of Main Ops at the beach, then roll around
              100 times. I actually did that in a CO-OP game while in the hangar
              while waiting for reinforcements to drop but it could be risky 
              getting spotted and make your coop partners annoyed (you hit them
              when rolling into them or they will know you are screwing around
              for the trophy).
    Note: Called 'There's nothing else you can do?' on the Xbox 360.
    Title: Kuwabara, Kuwabara (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Heard a ghost on the radio.
    Obtained: EXTRA OPS 062 - Use codec (not comms!) near the first ghost in until
              you hear "This is The End" then complete the mission. I suggest the
              Stealth Suit so the ghost cannot spot you and you can just keep
              trying. Switch your controls to have the codec on a single button,
              start CPR on the guard and keep spamming the codec button until you
              get this message (you might miss it with lots of talking going on at
              the same time but the trophy should pop up to give you notice.
    Title: I'm dead serious (Bronze)(10)  
    Description: Threw a chaff grenade at ZEKE (single player only). 
    Obtained: You obtained chaff grenades well before facing Zeke, but like this
              joke trophy tries to imply you cannot use it against Zeke
              effectively. The trophy pops if you try though, so bring along a
              chaff grenade (I suggest the Zeke Mock Battle to avoid all the story)
              and then doing it quickly. End the battle afterwards if you want.
    Title: You're pretty good (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Shot enemy right in the middle of the rear end.
    Obtained: Shooting enemies in the "rear end" with the Mk.22 actually is really
              useful since it tranqs them in one go, and later enemies will wear
              helmets so headshots alerts them instead. You can carefully sneak up
              to enemies and aim for the butt if you want, but regularly get this on
              EX OPS 49 when trying to shoot the guy up the fort turning around so I
              think it is almost natural to achieve this at some point in the game.
              You do not need the Mk.22 for this but I tend to use that anyway.
    Title: Completed ZEKE (Silver)(50)
    Description: Customized ZEKE's head parts and foot parts with special AI weapon
    Obtained: This require Zeke to have launched first thus getting all main parts
              and the three optional parts (the armor is optional for launching
              Zeke and still not required for this trophy!). Fighting the Custom
              AI weapons has the chance to drop its head. I would recommend
              fighting Pupa Custom over and over again until you get it. The drop
              rate is not very high in my experience. For the legs you should fight
              Peace Walker II until it drops its legs. You can fight the Custom one
              too but I think the drop rate is higher and it is just a lot harder
              to fight him. For both parts you want to try and not damage these
              before the end of the battle, as it should increase the drop rate.
    Title: Deliverer (Bronze)(20)
    Description: Sent an item using Delivery.     
    Obtained: This does NOT actually have to be done online as you can set the
              address to Free and send it off. Create a Gift and put anything
              crappy you have plenty of (e.g. rations) and you are done.
    Title: Trader (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Carried out a trade.
    Obtained: Maybe the most annoying mission in terms of waiting around until
              someone comes along and trades with you. First off, put a few people
              in the trade room else you will not be able to trade anyone. You can
              try to set up a time with a friend to come online, or just leave it
              running waiting for someone to join you (it pings you so you can go
              play on your PSP or something), or keep checking if someone else sets
              it up waiting just like you did. There seems to also be a problem
              getting connected sometimes. I could not establish a connection with
              one player, then I set up my own and he connected fine too me. This
              is all trial and error. Some have said it is because they have
              transfarred the game from the PSP but then I would think they have
              fixed the issue by now.
              Once connected just pick a guy and hope the other side has the same
              rank. You can only trade equal people, like A-rank Intel for an A-
              rank R&D person. Since you can always get people from missions and
              through recruitment, this is all kind of useless because you never
              need to use this function for the real game!!
              (*Konami, what is this crap and why make a trophy for it?!*)
              Ok, so there might just be a reason. You could be wanting a female
              for your troups to get a certain insigmia. It would be easier to get
              this if your friends can trade female over to you (wow, this sounds
              all wrong). Usually you will only have ~5% females in your group and
              end getting more good ones is another story all together.
    Title: VERSUS OPS All Rules (Bronze)(10)
    Description: Played using all of the rules in VERSUS OPS.
    Obtained: This means you need to play Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Base Capture
              as well as Control modes in VS OPS. You need to finish the game I
              believe, not just 1 round. Most people only play Team Deathmatch
              since they either do not care about trophies or just want to play the
              most fun version the game has to offer. Once in a while you get
              someone who sets up all four and maybe even quick rounds to get this
              done quickly. Those would be mainly there for boosting this trophy
              but also camaraderie. You can always try to set up your own, make the
              rounds 2 and only 1 minute long, then wait for anyone to join. Just
              have one person stick around until the end of the rounds and you will
              have completed this one. It should not take too long, and try to
              start with the Base and Control versions since Deathmatch and Team
              Deathmatch are super common.
    Title: Vic Vos (Gold)(50)
    Description: Reached a total of 20,000 or more Camaraderie.
    Obtained: This is a stumbling block for many trying to get the platinum trophy,
              mainly because they think they just need to play online to get it.
              Camaraderie means you stick together with a few people and play with
              them regular. Only then will get you enough points to clear the 20,000
              mark. The reason is because the list in your profile only holds space
              for 50 players and will start deleting the bottom ones if new players
              come in. Once that happens you could be replacing a 100-point player
              with a 20-point one from the last mission. To prevent that, delete
              players off the bottom list once in a while if you do think it is
              worth it. The list will sort by points only AFTER having replaced
              the bottom players, with the latest at the very top.
              If you accidentally played a game and replaced good people with bad
              ones, you can always not save the game and reload.
              On average you want people with 400+ points on there but you
              really need to have a few 1000+ people to make this work. If you can,
              find people to play with you, else hope people join you for a while.
              Set up a VS OPS and make the round time 1 minute or 2 (so people do
              not just leave because they think it sucks). You get a lot of points
              for having played a round. You can set the rounds to 99 if you want,
              or cycle through game modes but the loading will be a little slower
              and you spend more time on loading than playing (and earning points).
