Roadmap and Trophy Guide by rorylfc


Overview
Estimated Difficulty: 3/10
Time to Completion: 10-15 Hours
Breakdown: 51 Trophies (41= :bronze | 7= :silver | 2= :gold | 1= :plat)
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2 (Second playthrough is effectively New Game + )
Number of missable trophies: None
Number of Glitched trophies: None

Step 1 – Playthrough One
When you start the game, select Easy as your difficulty. The game’s controls and camera angles can be very annoying when you first play, but by the time you get through the first half an hour of playing you will not even notice.
As you play through each of the levels, you will gain access to various suits and suit upgrades. These will come in very handy for your second playthrough.

Step 2 – Playthrough Two
Your second playthrough will need to be on Formidable difficulty, but do not start a new game.....
Instead.... go into the headquarters and change the difficulty to formidable.
Replay all the chapters again, but this time use War Machine, rather than Iron Man as your main character.
As you are replaying the chapters via chapter select rather than starting a new game, you get access to all the suits and suit upgrades you unlocked during your first playthrough.

Step 3 – Clean Up
In this step you will just need to clean up any trophies you may be missing.
You can change the difficulty back to easy for this clean up and then use chapter select. I will make a note against the individual trophy the chapter which is best to obtain each trophy.


Posted Image Platinum :plat
Earn all Iron Man™ 2 trophies
As always earn all other trophies to unlock the platinum.


Posted Image Access Denied :bronze
Prevent Roxxon from stealing the Stark Archives.
STORY RELATED UNMISSABLE
This trophy will unlock at the end of the chapter.


Posted Image Deportation :bronze
Prevent the Russian separatists from deploying Roxxon Armigers.
STORY RELATED UNMISSABLE

Posted Image Power Outage :bronze

This trophy will unlock after you have defeated the Crimson Dynamo.

STORY RELATED UNMISSABLE

STORY RELATED UNMISSABLE

Posted Image The Bigger They Are :silver

STORY RELATED UNMISSABLE

Posted Image Shake It Off :bronze
Recover from the Roxxon EMP Attack
STORY RELATED UNMISSABLE
This trophy will unlock at the end of the chapter.


Posted Image Not in My House :bronze
Prevent the first wave of Roxxon dropships from deploying their drones
Chapter 1 – Second half.
I found this trophy to be very annoying and virtually impossible the first time you are on this chapter. This was mainly due to the fact that this trophy is unlockable within the first 10 minutes of the game and it takes longer than that to get used to the controls/camera angles.
Luckily the game features chapter select, so you can always skip back to this chapter when you are stronger/have got used to the game’s features.
When you start to control War Machine during the second part of chapter one, you will see a dropship straight ahead of you. Destroy this dropship before it lands and two more will appear; one to your left and one to your right. Again destroy both of these before they land and the trophy is yours.
If you do not manage to unlock this, then you can always restart the checkpoint to try again.


Posted Image Full Flight :bronze
Only one S.H.I.E.L.D transport lost in the canyon run
Chapter 2
This is one of the hardest trophies in the game, and if virtually impossible if you attempt it on Formidable difficulty.
You start the level escorting some S.H.I.E.L.D transport ships through a canyon. Various enemies will start attacking your transport ships. To unlock the trophy you need to lose no more than one transport ship during the whole run.
The best method for this is to try this only after you have completed the game once, this way you will have access to some very good upgrades, which will make the killing of the enemies a lot quicker.
Also do not race too far ahead of the transport ships, as at times attack helicopters appear behind the ships, which will decimate the ships if you are too far away.
If you lose more than one ship, restart the checkpoint.


Posted Image Area Secured :silver
At least 10 S.H.I.E.L.D units survive the battle for the docks
Chapter 3
At the end of the Canyon run sequence for the above trophy, you enter a tunnel and after the cutscene you will come out of the other side into the dock area.
Within this area you will see green dots on your radar. These are the SHIELD units. Just kill all enemies within the area (Red dots on your radar) and as long as 10 units have survived this trophy will unlock at the end of the chapter.
Unfortunately there is no way of telling if less than 10 have survived as the battle in this area is quite intense. I was able to unlock this on my first try, so as long as you kill the enemies as quickly as possible, you should unlock this with no problems.


Posted Image Pulling The Plug :bronze
Destroy all four Tesla reactor stabilizers in under 60 seconds
Chapter 4
A few minutes into the chapter you enter a door with a red light above it. When you enter the room you will see a Tesla Reactor Stabilizer in each corner of the room. Ignore the enemies and destroy all four of the reactors within 60 seconds to unlock this trophy.


Posted Image Anger Management :bronze
Destroy most of the structures in Shatalov’s base
Chapter 5
When you start the chapter you have to attack two bases and complete the objectives in these bases.
To unlock this trophy you need to destroy everything within both bases. This includes fences, trees, roof tiles etc... Just shoot everything....
If you think you have destroyed everything and the trophy still does not unlock, it does not mean that this has glitched; it is more than likely you have missed destroying something. Just fly between the bases shooting everything in sight.


Posted Image Entrapment :bronze
Reach the bottom of the elevator shaft without touching a laser tripline
Chapter 6
This is quite an easy trophy to unlock.
At the start of the level activate the control panel to open up the door and then activate the other control panel to activate the lift lasers.
Just get to the bottom of the elevator shaft without touching a single laser to unlock this trophy. The best method I found was to hover just above the lasers and as soon as one passes underneath I would then descend to the next set. Rinse and repeat and you should be fine.


Posted Image Defensive Player of the Year :bronze
Save all four repulsor lifts and all four stabilizers on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.
Chapter 7
This is another trophy that is virtually impossible on Formidable difficulty and is best saved until after you have completed the game and unlock most of the upgrades.
You have to defend various parts of the SHIELD helicarrier and luckily enough for you there is a checkpoint after each one, so if you fail one part you do not have to start from the beginning.
For each part just attack each enemy as quickly as possible ensuring that you attack the ones that you can see are doing to most damage. Once you get to the end of the chapter without losing either a repulsor lift or stabilizer this trophy will unlock.


Posted Image Brute Force :silver
Destroy the A.I.M. Arc Armiger without using missile deflection.
After you have saved the SHIELD helicarrier, you will face off against an AIM Arc Armiger. When the machine fires missiles at you, do not deflect them instead just avoid them.
Finish the battle without deflecting any missiles and the trophy will unlock.


Posted Image Guardian :silver
Shut down GREENGRID without needing to repair the Arc Armiger.
Chapter 8
At the start of the chapter you escort an AIM Arc Armiger towards the GREENGRID, just makes sure that you take out as many of the enemies you can as soon as possible, which will reduce the amount of damage the Armiger will take.
If you get a message saying that you need to repair the Armiger, then it has taken too much damage and you will need to restart the checkpoint.
I suggest you attempt this on easy difficulty after you have completed the game as the suit upgrades will help considerably.


Posted Image Switchboard Operator :bronze
Reposition all of the GREENGRID relays without being interrupted.
Chapter 8
The easiest way to reposition a relay without being interrupted is to kill all the enemies around you first and then start attempting the relay. You do not need to do all three within the time limit, just without being hit.


Posted Image Not a Scratch :silver
Defeat Ultimo with no armor damage
This trophy is actually quite easy to do, as long as you attempt this on Easy difficulty
You need to make sure that you beat Ultimo, without damaging your armor. Luckily you can still take hits as your shield can withstand a couple of hits before you armor gets compromised.
Ultimo is a really easy boss battle as he is very slow so dodging should not be a problem. If you do manage to damage your armor feel free to restart the checkpoint.


Posted Image Ultimatum :bronze
Complete every mission on Easy Difficulty
Playthrough one should be played on Easy difficulty, which should not cause you any problems.
This will unlock after you have beaten the game’s final boss battle.


Posted Image Iron Man :silver
Complete every mission on Normal Difficulty
See Invincible trophy.


Posted Image Invincible :gold
Complete every mission on Formidable Difficulty
The difficulty trophies of this game stack, so if you are following my roadmap, you will get both the Iron Man and Invincible trophies after you complete step 2.
Do not start a new game for you Formidable run, instead change the difficulty via the start menu, whilst you are in the Headquarters and then replay each chapter.
Both difficulty trophies will unlock after you have beaten the game’s final boss battle.


Posted Image Fists of Iron :bronze
Defeat 100 enemies in close combat
See Omega Man trophy


Posted Image Storm of Lead :bronze
Defeat 100 enemies with War Machine’s mini-gun

Posted Image Hall of Armors :gold
Unlock all Armor Suits
After you complete each level of the game you unlock a different suit of armor as long as you kill enough enemies.
Every enemy you kill gets you points, so try not to skip any enemies and you should have all of these Armor Suits unlocked when you complete the game.
I did not even try for this trophy and still managed to unlock everything on my first playthrough.


Posted Image Technical Genius :silver
Invent every Module, Ammunition and Weapon Upgrade
When you kill enemies and complete levels you are awarded points. These points are used to invent new modules, ammunition and weapon upgrades.
Do not worry about upgrading anything until after you have completed playthrough one. Once complete spend all your points and you should have only a few upgrades etc to invent.
By the time you get to chapter 4/5 of your Formidable playthrough you should have enough to invent everything else in the game and unlock this trophy.


Posted Image Gonna Need more Bad Guys :bronze
Defeat more than 1,000 Enemies
I would not even worry about this trophy as you will defeat more than a 1,000 enemies over the course of your two playthroughs and any grinding you will more than likely need towards the end of your hunt for this platinum.


Posted Image Unnecessary Force :bronze
Defeat a soldier with Iron Man’s Unibeam
There are only two chapters in the game where you face off against soldiers, all other enemies are effectively mechs. These chapters are two and four.
In Chapter 2, after you escort the SHIELD transport ships through the canyon, you will enter a tunnel and then be in a battle at the docks.
Soldiers are running around on the ground, so fly down and then defeat one using your Unibeam to unlock this trophy


Posted Image Bulletproof :bronze
Defeat 50 enemies as Iron Man while Invincible
See Omega Man trophy


Posted Image Ultimate Iron Man :bronze
Unlock the Ultimate Iron Man armor
See Hall of Armors trophy


Posted Image Classic Iron Man :bronze

Posted Image Mark III :bronze

See Hall of Armors trophy


Posted Image Mark II :bronze
Unlock the Mark II Iron Man armor

Posted Image Mark VI :bronze

Posted Image Two Man Army :bronze

See Bipolar trophy


Posted Image It Takes two to Tango :bronze
Defeat Crimson Dynamo as both Iron Man and War Machine.
See Bipolar trophy


Posted Image Man and Machine :bronze
Destroy Project PROTEAN as both Iron Man and War Machine.
See Bipolar trophy


Posted Image Bipolar :bronze
Shut down the GREENGRID power transmitter as both Iron Man and War Machine.
If you are following the roadmap for this game you will have seen that I said that on your Formidable run, always choose War Machine as your playable character.
The reason for this is this trophy and the other three that point to here all relate to you completing certain chapters as both Iron Man and War Machine.
Each trophy will unlock as soon as you have completed the chapter.


Posted Image Omega Man :bronze
Defeat 100 enemies as War Machine while using Omega System
You may possible get this trophy and some of the others linked here during the course of your two playthroughs. Unfortunately you will not get them all. Instead a bit of grinding will be involved.
The best place for this is right at the start of chapter 4 where you have to go down the elevator shaft with lasers. Before you went down here without touching the lasers, but this time you want to touch all the lasers.
This will bring out a load of enemies for you to defeat.
Defeat these using which ever weapon you’re trying to get the trophy for. Once defeated continue to the chapter until you get a message on the screen saying Checkpoint Reached.
When you get this message, pause the game and choose “Save Checkpoint”. This will take you back to the headquarters.
Now rinse and repeat this process until you unlock all combat trophies.
