Perfect Recall
Achieve 100% Synchronization in any Sequence other than Sequence 1.

This trophy is much easier than it sounds. For this trophy you must achieve 100% Synchronization from all the Main Story Memories within the Sequence. If you choose to do Secondary Memories such as Guild or Templar Mission during the Sequence these do not count towards the 100% so don't worry if you don't get 100% in those. The easiest level to achieve this in is during Sequence 3. You can do this in any Sequence EXCEPT Sequence 1 for the trophy. I will go over Sequence 3 with you and strategy to attain 100% Sync for that level.
  • Memory: Double Agent
    100% Sync Requirements: Do not be detected while reducing Notoriety. remain undetected until rejoining La Volpe at the Thieves Guild.
    Strategy: IF you have the Crossbow already it is perfect for this mission but it isn't necessary. Head to the Thieves Guild to begin this mission, then head into town and meet La Volpe at the designated area with the yellow diamond. View the cinematic then jump down and take out the guards. After the short cinematic run forward and hop in on of the groups of people that will be walking down the stairs to the right. The group should go down the stairs then head to the right. Stay in the group until you get past the pillar then leave the group and turn to your left and you will see a small alley. Move from group to group over to that alley. Wait until you see a walking group of people coming towards the alley then hop in that group and go down the alley to get past the guards. At the bottom of the stairs turn to your left and drop off the package. Now you need to reduce your notoriety without being noticed. Head to the icons for the posters and pull them off to reduce 25% and if you have 500 florins you can head over to the herald and bribe him to reduce 50%. The guards will be marked with a red icon above their heads so make sure you avoid them while doing this. Once you are finished everything will return to normal. Head back to the guild and meet with La Volpe to finish this sequence and gain 100%.
  • Memory: Between a Rock and a Hard Place
    100% Sync Requirements: Kill only the Borgia Captain.
    Strategy: Head to the Mercenaries Guild to start this mission. As soon as the mission starts, there will be a battle outside. The Captain will be marked with a Red Marker above his head and you will be instructed to kill him as he tries to escape. DO NOT KILL ANYONE ELSE THAT IS FIGHTING. As soon as you can control Ezio start sprinting after the Captain and take him out. As long as you kill him first you will meet the requirements for 100% sync. After you kill him, burn down the Borgia Tower that is on the small piece of land in the middle of the water directly in front of the guild to end the mission.
  • Memory: High Stakes Negotiation
    100% Sync Requirements: Do Not Swim
    Strategy: Head to the Rosa in Fiore to start this mission. After the cinematic head to the yellow diamond on your map which is the objective marker. When you get to the boat, their will be a short cinematic, when it ends head up onto the boat so you don't get knocked into the water. Take out all the smugglers, then return to the Rosa in Fiore. As long as you don't go into the water at all during this mission you will achieve 100% sync.
  • Memory: Collective Intelligence
    100% Sync Requirements: Discover the location of the Apple of Eden, Caterina Sforza, Cesare and Rodrigo Borgia.
    Strategy: Return to the Assassins HQ on Tiber Island to being this memory. All you have to do is listen to the cinematic to achieve 100% sync. Once the Cinematic ends, speak to the Architect in the guild to end the memory.

Déjà vu
Replay a Memory

This is a very easy trophy. For this trophy the only thing you need to do is press the button , then go to the DNA menu, then replay any Main Sequence memory or Secondary memory and the trophy will unlock. I recommend waiting until the end of the game, and when you go back through for your clean up you will most likely unlock this trophy. This trophy should also unlock after the level loads, so you really don't even need to play the level to gain the trophy.

There are a total of 6 of the Romulus Followers lairs that will appear at various Sequences in the game after you have completed The Halls of Nero memory in Sequence 2.

This Shrine will be available at the start of Sequence 3 and is located in the South Antico District on the city wall next to the Piramide Cestia. Look for the Shining half circle grate at the base of the wall for the entrance. Below I will go through the steps of getting through this tunnel including how to get the 3 hidden Borgia Flags that are in this Lair.
  1. Follow the path around collecting loot on the way until you come to your first major intersection. To the right is two treasure chests and a dead end. After collecting these head back the other way and follow the path until you reach another intersection with is on top of a wooden plank, located in between two poles you can swing on. take the Path to the left instead of proceeding through the ground level door. Follow this higher path until you reach a room with a ladder. Climb up the ladder, then proceed through the opening to the next area.
  2. When you arrive in the next area, jump over to the pole on the right and follow this upper path around to Borgia Flag #1. After collecting the Flag follow this path and drop down from the hand grabs to the exit from the cavern
  3. In this next corridor, take your second left, your first right, then your next right to continue on the main path. (There are 3 treasure chests if you search the other paths.) then follow this main path while looting until you come to the hole in the floor. Jump across the hole to grab on, then press the to drop and hold the again to catch yourself as you are falling. Continue doing this until you reach a ledge. Climb up the ledge, then turn around and swing across the pole and carry on down the next corridor.
  4. Continue down the path until you come to the next open area. Look up and to the right and you will see a gated door high up on the wall and some rings on the wall.

After getting the flag, head back to the main path and continue, while looting on your way. When you get to the next intersection you can go either way, both lead to the same place. To the right is faster and straight will lead to a treasure chest. Either way you will need to turn either left or right at the main intersection, depending on what path you took, and you will enter an underground church.
  5. There will be a quick cutscene that follows. After it ends, head up the stairs in front of you to the left, then climb the wall and head all the way to the left and to the other wall. Climb up to the hand grabs then proceed to the left and to the other wall. From here, turn around and climb up the wall, then back jump to the pole. Pull yourself up then swing across the poles to reach Borgia Flag #3. After getting the Flag continue on the path until you make yourself a pillar staircase.
  6. From this pillar, jump to the roof of the structure next to you and then head to the other side of the room. Jump to the pillar, then to the beams and reach the platform with the giant cross. Climb up the back of the cross until you can't climb anymore than move around to the front and climb to the top. Once you are at the top, jump over to the exit of this room.
  7. In the next hallway, take your first left, then right, then straight and then two more rights. Follow this path until you reach a circular room with a cutscene.

After getting the flag, head back the way you came and continue down the other path at the intersection.

Once you get onto the ledge turn to your right before going through the hole and leap over to the second story floor and find Borgia Flag #3 on a broken ramp on the left side of the room. After getting the flag proceed back to the ledge and through the hole.
  4. In the next room, head to the right and jump down the pillars and approach the flashing gate for a cutscene to start. After the cutscene you will be prompted to shoot the flashing sandbag to your left. If you don't have any ammo for your Crossbow or Gun, there is a table with some ammo on it behind you and to the left. Hold the to lock on to the sandbag and shoot it which unlocks a door down the hallway. Head through the open door and climb up into a new hallway which leads to another glowing sandbag. Shoot the sandbag and the giant chandelier starts to fall. There is also ammo here on the table if you need it.
  5. After the cutscene for the chandelier, head over to the big hole in the floor and climb up to the railing and run over to the first pillar you can climb.

Discover the Shrine in the Basilica di San Pietro.

There are a total of 6 of the Romulus Followers lairs that will appear at various Sequences in the game after you have completed The Halls of Nero memory in Sequence 2. They will always appear on your map if you press the button as this symbol. This Shrine will be available at the start of Sequence 8 and is located on the right side of the steps entrance to the Basilica di San Pietro. Look for the Shining half circle grate at the base of the wall for the entrance. Below I will go through the steps of getting through this tunnel including how to get the 3 hidden Borgia Flags that are in this Lair.
  1. Head up the stairs to walk in on a church group ending. Move to the opening on your left and activate your Eagle Vision to find you target highlighted in Gold. Now enter the group of people walking by and head to the back of the room with them so you stay invisible and out of the guards sights. When you get to the back, leave your present group and enter the group in the middle of the walkway. Now wait there and the target will walk to the back of the room. You will get a warning that says "Reduce distance to target" but as long as you are in the group I instructed you to jump in, you will be fine. You will be in the group directly across from the guard. When the target comes back, wait for him to pass then move to your group to the right. When the Target reaches a point even with the guard he will turn so be prepared. Once he turns and walks away follow him directly into the next group. Now wait for him to pass the next set of groups and head to either the one on the left or the one on the right. When he gets to the gate he will turn again. After he goes through the gate head over to the gate for a cutscene and a chase begins.
  2. the target will use a Lift to elude you, so climb the wall and proceed to the next room. Climb to the top of the next room and there will be two exits. One straight in front of you, and one to your right. Head to the one to the right and you will see an obelisk in front of you with Borgia Flag #1 at the top. Perform a wall climb on the wall on the left then do a Side Jump to the right to catch the obelisk and get the Flag. Once you have the flag head back through the other exit and resume the chase.
  3. This next part if the chase is pretty straightforward, just follow the path through the rafters and beams until you come to a point with several lights in a row. After the third light, as soon as you land look to your left for Borgia Flag #2. Grab it then continue after the Target. Finally you will have him cornered to take him out. Use dodges on the Target, + when he swings followed by quick attacks after to take him down quickly.
  4. After the fight head out to the perch but before you perform your Leap of Faith, drop down the Borgia Flag #3 which is on a beam directly below the perch. Climb back up after getting the flag, then jump into the water below. Collect the treasure from the shrine, then head through the gate to end the area and receive your trophy.

Destroy the Machine Gun

This is a story Based trophy.

This is the Main Story memory, Outgunned that you will play in Sequence 4. You will always have to do the War Plans memory before the actual mission with the weapon. The War Plans Mission will mark the Overseer on your map and you must go execute him and his guards. I recommend you have your Assassin's help you to make it easier when you have them available. After you kill the Over seer you will get another Leonardo mark on your map which will be by a city gate to start the mission.

When you start out this level you will be on the hillside above the villa. Move down and to the right along the outer edge of the villa and use your ledge hang to move along the wall where the guards are located. If you have the crossbow and don't care about synchronization, use this to take out the guards who are in your way. When you reach the third alleyway heading left head down this alley to find the Blue prints at the end. From where you get destroy the blueprints, climb the wall and run across the roof of the building and drop down on the other side. From here turn around and go light the fuse on the barrels, then get to the safe distance to trigger the next sequence.

This next sequence involves you riding a horse while galloping, + , to catch up to the wagon with the machine gun. Try and avoid the fire and just follow the path. Once you get close enough the game will trigger a cutscene and you will jump aboard the wagon and take over. Once you are in control of the wagon, all you can do is steer. The Borgia will ride along side you on their horses and try to shoot you. Steer the wagon into them to knock them off their horses. Once you have traveled past the village, you will take over on the machine gun. Hold down on the , and take out all the Borgia chasing you until the sequence ends and the trophy is yours.

I recommend you have your Assassin's help you to make it easier when you have them available. After you kill the Overseer you will get another Leonardo mark on your map which will be by a city gate to start the mission.

This mission is done primarily in the water. If you aren't familiar with the water, you can swim faster with + and if you hold the you can dive underwater. From the start head to the left and either take out the guards or dive underwater and past him to get to the mark on your map. After talking to the Blueprints maker, swim along side his boat down the tunnel. Once you get to the gate, there will be a cutscene and the boat will float through the gate and the gate will close behind it. Kill the guard on the left, then climb up on the walkway and use the handholds on the wall to climb up and over the gate. From here you will have two choices, you can jump down and swim in the water avoiding guards, or you can stay in the rafters above which is what I recommend. You will pass through more gates than you must jump down and be sneaky following the boatman. If you have the Crossbow the nest part will be very easy, simply follow the boat and climb out occasionally and take down the guards, or perform a water assassination. Once you get to the end open the gate and proceed.

Fight your way to the next gate, then open it up and proceed down the sewer and prepare to fight off 5-6 guards. After that, climb up the ladder and burn the blueprints, then make your way counter clockwise around the room turning all the cranks to allow the water to fill up in the room and launch the boat.

The next part is easy use the to row the boat and avoid the cannon fire, and when you get close enough, press the to switch to the flam cannon and burn down the sails and the first boat, and the other three boats in the harbor. Once you have done that the scene will end and the trophy is yours.

Boom!
Destroy the Bomber

These will become available after you have completed the Main Story Memory, Outgunned that you will play in Sequence 4. You will always have to do the War Plans memory before the actual mission with the weapon. The War Plans Mission will mark the Overseer on your map and you must go execute him and his guards. I recommend you have your Assassin's help you to make it easier when you have them available. After you kill the Overseer you will get another Leonardo mark on your map which will be by a city gate to start the mission.

From the beginning of the map, make your way into the green circle and then move towards the back, you won't have any notoriety so you will be fine. When you get the prompt, use the Eagle vision to locate you target in gold then follow him. Once you get him alone beat him up the learn the whereabouts of the blueprints. After you have done this you will be on high alert so be careful. Wait in the location you are in before proceeding so a group of guards can pass, then proceed down the road to the right until you come to a ladder. Climb up to the roof, then take out the guards below with your Crossbow. Now jump over to the city wall and take out the guard on the roof, then move along the city wall and takeout the other rooftop guard and the one on the ground below him. Drop down and burn the blueprints.

This next part is tough, you must hop in one of the groups heading up the road and when the road branches off head to the right and up to the stables. From the roof of the stables hop across the beams to the boxes then climb up to the tower and kill the guard up top. From here take a Leap of Faith into the Hay below, then wait there and take out the two guards that will eventually pass. After they pass head down the alley to your left. Climb the boxes near the Wall, then jump across the beams to the roof with the ladder. Climb back up the wall, then turn around and jump up to the platform behind you, then climb up the tower in front of you and take out the guard on top. Wait for the guard on the tower to your left to face the other way, then run across the beam and jump over the the high middle building. Run across the boards and take out the guard below and enter the checkpoint. From here make your way to the top of the tower killing the guards on the way to find the bomber.

On the bomber, you can use the to drop bombs and destroy the watch towers below. You want to destroy the 4 manufacturing plants at the markers. You will need to shoot them twice to take them out. If you start to fly to low shoot a bomb on the ground then fly over the Air Plume it creates to gain altitude. Once you are done shoot the messengers and the memory will end and the trophy is yours.

Kaboom!
Destroy the Tank

These will become available after you have completed the Main Story Memory, Outgunned that you will play in Sequence 4. You will always have to do the War Plans memory before the actual mission with the weapon. The War Plans Mission will mark the Overseer on your map and you must go execute him and his guards. I recommend you have your Assassin's help you to make it easier when you have them available. After you kill the Overseer you will get another Leonardo mark on your map which will be by a city gate to start the mission.

When you get to this first area you will immediately notice the Weapon builder and he will get a marker on his head. Jump into the hay pile and wait there for the spearman to walk by then take him out. Hop out of the hay and move along the right side of the buildings and hop in the second hay pile you come to and take out the guard. Now move across the road to the building and climb up top. Perform a leap of faith into the wagon filled with hay below, then take out the guard standing there. Hop out and take out the guard in the building in front of you, then move up the road and hop in the hay pile. Wait for the architect to go in the castle then move down the right wall and climb across the beams to find an entrance in the back. Once inside beat the crap out of the architect till he gives you the info you need . Now move across the rooftops, using your Crossbow to take out guards and make your way to the back right corner and find the plans and burn them. Turn around and go over the buildings to the flashing door and release the prisoners.

Once you have freed them, it will be ok to be seen again. Fight your way through the city to the entrance to the tunnels. Make your way through the tunnels until you come to the tank. Once you are inside the tank, this is by far the most fun of the vehicle missions. Use the left stick to move, the right stick to aim and to shoot. Fight your way through everyone and destroy all the tanks and the manufacturing area at the end to finish the memory and receive your trophy.

Home Improvement
Renovate 5 buildings in the Antico district

the Antico district spans from the Thieves Guild all the way to the Coliseum. You will need to destroy the corresponding Borgia Towers for each area before you can renovate the buildings in the area. What I suggest is to wait until you have renovated the Thieves Guild HQ in Sequence 3, then rebuild all the shops around the guild. There is a Bank, a weapon shop, an art dealer, stables, a tunnel and a tailor so immediately following the memory you can get this trophy if you renovate 5 of these.

Tower Offense
Burn all the Borgia Towers

Borgia Towers are new to the Assassin's Creed Series. The Borgia Towers will be located on your in game map, which you can view by pressing the button, at every location where you see this symbol. It is very important to destroy the Borgia Towers because you will not be able to perform any renovations to the shops in the area until the tower has been destroyed. When you arrive at the Borgia Tower their will be a Red Restricted Area square around the tower and any guards that are in the area will immediately attack you if they see you in that square. When you get into the area you will need to look for the Borgia Captain who will be designated with a red flag on your mini map and above them. You must kill the Borgia Captain before you can burn the Tower! Some of the Captains will stay and fight, but most will run from you. If the Captain escapes, you will need to wait for the Shift Change at Dawn and the Captain will return in the same area he was before, so if this happens just wait for him in that area to get the drop on him. Once you have killed the Captain, climb the Tower and when you get to the top, press the to light it on fire and watch the cutscene. Ezio will automatically use the Viewpoint Sync when you do this so you don't have to worry about using that before you burn it down. There are a total of 12 Towers, 2 you will burn down in Main Story Missions, and the other 10 you will just need to go to on your map. If the area is unavailable come back in a later chapter to burn it to the ground. The earliest you can get this trophy is in Sequence 7 when you gain access to the final Towers. Once all 12 are burned down the trophy will unlock

Perfectionist
Earn 3 gold medals in the Animus Virtual Training Program.

The Animus Virtual Training is introduced in the first 2012 level when you are trying to get into the Sanctuary with Desmond and Lucy. After that, anytime you are playing with Ezio and aren't in a Main Story Memory you can enter the VR training by pressing the button and selecting the Virtual Training Command. Now inside the VR Training area you will have several different choices for Challenge Groups. Combat, Free Run, Stealth Assassination and Locate. Inside these groups you will find several Challenges that are related to the topic to try and perform. For this trophy you must complete any 3 Challenges at Gold Level and if you can complete all the Challenges in every group at Bronze level you will unlock the Raiden Skin for use. Now everyone will have their challenges that they are better at, but I personally found the Hidden Blade Challenges in the Stealth Assassination group to be the easiest so I will do a walkthrough on those three so everyone can get their trophy from it. If anyone would like to make a strategy walkthrough for the other individual challenges to get golds on PM them to me or include them in the discussion and as long as they are good tips I will include them in the guide.

Brotherhood
Recruit 3 Assassins

This trophy is somewhat story related. In Sequence 4, Memory 5 you will do the Man of the People memory. This is your first opportunity to work on your Assassin's Guild and recruit members. For this memory you are required to recruit your first two Assassins by heading to the markers on your map and helping the citizens who are in trouble with the Borgia Guards. After you save them, talk to the citizens and they will join the guild. After you help the first two, at any point in the game after that, head to the Assassin Recruit markers on your map and help the citizens to gather more recruits. Once you recruit one more Assassin the trophy will unlock.

Welcome to the Brotherhood
Train a recruit up to the Rank of Assassin.

Once you have started to recruit Assassins, there are two ways to work on leveling them up, which is similar to a strategy game built into Assassins Creed Brotherhood. By pressing the while you have an available Assassin Signal, which is the meter on the upper left of the screen, they will attack targets and earn EXP. The faster way is Assassin Missions. Visit any pigeon coop or Assassin Tower to go into your Assassin Dashboard. From here go to missions and you will see your available missions. The missions will be classified in to categories based on their difficulty with the red circles from 1 (easy) to 5 (difficult). The missions that appear on 4 and 5 difficulty ratings that aren't circles but are bursting circles are special missions that are more difficult than regular missions. After you select a mission, you can select up to 5 Assassins to go on the mission. The Experience that is earned from that mission will be divided between the Assassins on the mission. When you add an Assassin, you will get a Chance of success percentage increase, on the corresponding meter, which depends on the level of the Assassins you send. you want to try and shoot for a percentage around 85%-100% for a better chance of success.

After you send them on a mission you will have to wait a while before the Assassins you send are available again. You will get an onscreen notification when the missions are complete and whether or not they are successful or failed. Once you receive the notification, return to any tower or pigeon coop to view the success of your Assassins. From here you can send them on new missions to level up quickly. You can also go to your Assassin screen and as they level up you will get bonuses to add to their Weapons and Armor. As they progress they will also gain access to new weapons such as Smoke Bombs. You can also change the color of their Assassins Robes in this area.

The max level is level 10, once you have an Assassin reach level 10 you will receive an onscreen notification and have to attend a small ceremony. After the ceremony the trophy is yours.

Capture the Flag
Remove All Borgia Flags in Rome

Anyone who played the original Assassin's Creed will remember these irritating little pieces of collectible crap. Mercifully, gathering all the Flags is much easier than collecting the Flags in the first game and it is even easier than collecting all of the Feathers in the second game. There are 101 Borgia Flags that you must collect through out the countryside for this trophy. Feel free to grab them if they are there for the taking, but if you want my advice there is no need to go out of your way to find them during the story modes of the game. After the completion of the game, OR if you have collected 25 Borgia Flags, you can purchase a a Borgia Flag Map from the Art merchants in Rome for about an average of 17,000 florins each. The maps are district specific so you will need to visit an Art Merchant in each of the three districts to unlock all of their locations. Once you purchase the Borgia Flag map, all of the Borgia Flag locations for that district will be shown on your map and mini map with the Feather Icon at the beginning of this description. If you have already collected some the locations for the ones you have collected will be removed from the map so you won't have to guess at which ones you have already collected. Once you collect all 101 the trophy unlocks. Below are some tips for Flag collecting and below that will be several videos for the Flags.
  • Special Unlock: Collecting all 101 Borgia Flags in the game will unlock the Borgia Cape. If you are equipped with the Cape you will not gain any notoriety for illegal acts.
  • There are 101 total Borgia Flags: There are 83 Borgia Flags in the open Free Roam and 18 Borgia Flags hidden in the 6 Shrines. For the locations of the Hidden Shrine Flags View the Shrine walkthroughs above in this guide.
  • Almost all of the Flags are very easy to get. There are a couple that I found to be a challenge. There are a couple that you must jump from the Aquaducts to get reach. The ones that are on the Aquaducts themselves, you can climb the Aquaducts where the water is pouring down to reach them. There is an area at the very bottom of the map that I couldn't find a way to get up to, except to run across the Aquaduct that connects that area to the small village and jump across the gap while holding the to catch on to the ledge of the other side of the Aquaduct.

Collect All Feathers

Yes sadly the feathers have returned as a collectible item from Assassin's Creed II, but before you start cussing and decide against this game let me ease your mind by telling you that there are only 10 feathers you need to collect for the entire game. There are a couple ways you can tackle these. As you are traveling around the land you will inevitably run into feathers to pick up. Feel free to grab them if they are there for the taking, but if you want my advice there is no need to go out of your way to find them during the story modes of the game. After the completion of the game, OR if you have collected 25 Borgia Flags, you can purchase a Feather Map from any of the Art Merchants anywhere in Rome. Once you purchase the Feather Map, all 10 of the feather locations will be shown on your map and mini map with the Feather Icon at the beginning of this description. If you have already collected some the locations for the ones you have collected will be removed from the map so you won't have to guess at which ones you have already collected. Once you collect all 10 the trophy unlocks. you can also deposit the feathers in the glowing chest in the Weapons Room at your main Assassin's Hideout.

Find 1 Artifact in 2012

This Trophy Is Missable!

While you are playing as Ezio after you have completed the Who's Got Mail memory in Sequence 2 you will gain the option to Leave Animus in your menu if you press the button. When you leave the Animus you will be free to roam around as Desmond inside Villa Auditore and outside in Monteriggioni. To get outside head towards the ramp and you will view a small cutscene between Desmond and Lucy the first time you exit the room. When you get outside you will only have a 10 minute time limit each time you go outside before you must return. There are 5 artifacts hidden outside that you can collect and they are easy to spot as they are a flashing yellow color. You only need to collect one for this trophy! The easiest one to collect is Claudia's Record Book, but I will list all 5 with a map for them in the spoiler below them for you expert collectors.

  1. Claudia's Record Book: As soon as you get outside, turn around and head back into the door towards the Animus Chamber. When you head through the first door hug the wall on the right side to pick up the Artifact before the automatic cutscene that puts you in the Animus Chamber.
  2. Maria's Feather Chest: This is located on the highest part of the roof of Villa Auditore.
  3. Ezio's Belt: From Villa Auditore head to the entrance to Monteriggioni, then turn right and head towards the buildings nestled in the corner if the City Walls. This is located on the lower roof of those buildings.
  4. Mario's Sword: From the last location jump off of the building you are on into the street and head away from the city wall back towards the Villa. Take your first right to find a tree in the next intersection. This is located by the tree.
  5. Medici Cape: From the last location, head back to the main street then turn right and head towards the city gates. Turn left this time and then take your next left at the first intersection. You will come to a clearing where the Church is located. The lat artifact is inside the church.


You must complete this trophy BEFORE you complete the Pax Romana memory which is the first memory in Sequence 9. After you complete this memory you will lose the ability to leave the Animus and WILL NOT gain the ability back in the Free Roam at the end of the game.

Serial Killer
Perform an Execution Streak of 10 kills.

Execution Streaks are new to the Assassin's Creed series and they work similar to the Combo System on Batman if you are familiar with that game. The easiest way to start an Execution Combo is to perform a counter. I recommend using the sword or another medium weapon for this .Hold the and press the when the enemy attacks you to counter and immediately go into an Execution. During the Execution sequence you can highlight the next enemy you want to attack with the left stick then press the attack button and Ezio will immediately Execute him as soon as the first Execution ends. Using this method you can string together quick Executions. Now for this trophy you need to have an Execution streak of 10, this does NOT mean you have to perform 10 quick kill Executions in a row! As long as you continue to execute enemies without leaving the battle and not getting hit, or being blocked it will still count towards your total. This does NOT mean you can just hack away at them until they die as this will stop the streak. You need to use the Counter Executions or Quick Executions for the streak to increase.

You can do this at any point in the game but the best place for this, in my opinion, is the Crepi Il Lupo memory in Sequence 2. When you get attacked by the Wolfmen, their are exactly 10 of them, pretty convenient if you ask me. When the fight starts, immediately pull out your sword and prepare to counter them. Once you counter the first one hit a couple with the quick execution, then go back to holding and prepare to counter. I found the Wolfmen will attack after every 2-3 quick executions you perform and if you get hit it will stop the Execution Kill streak. If you can Counter Execution and Quick Execution all 10 of them the trophy is yours. If you get hit, or mess up simply pause the game and Reload the Memory from the menu and it will start you as Ezio walks into the courtyard and gets attacked by the Wolfmen.

Spring Cleaning
Kill a guard with a Broom.

As you are roaming around the city of Rome you will occasionally see civilians cleaning their porches with brooms. If you listen carefully you will also hear a sweeping sound when you are close to them. When you locate one, run into him and he will drop his broom and probably yell at you. Once he drops the broom move over to it and pick up the broom. Next find any guards roaming around and proceed to bash them until they are unrecognizable. After you kill them the trophy will sound after a few seconds pass.

Once all of these are complete he will make give you this ability as a gift. You can hold a maximum of 5 parachutes at a time and they are a one time use. If you run out you can visit any Tailor Shop and purchase more. To use the Parachute, jump off of a high building or structure and when you jump you will notice that your button will change to "parachute" for a few seconds. press the button during that time to deploy your chute and then glide to your lower destination without taking damage from the fall. If you lock onto an enemy during the glide you can also perform Air Assassinations from the parachute as well. Once you have your Parachute, either head to Castel Sant'Angelo once you have finished with the game, before that it will be locked, which is the Main Castle where your enemies live that you infiltrate in Sequence 4 to save Catarina and again in Sequence 8 to find the Apple. Once you are inside the Castle climb all the way to the very top of the flag pole which is the highest point in the entire game. You can also load up Sequence 8 Memory 2, An Apple A Day, and you will start very close to the top of the tower. Once you are up at the very top of the flagpole simply leap off and deploy a parachute. During your glide the trophy will unlock.

The Gloves Come Off
Win the highest bet at the Fights.

The fights are located in the Mercinarie's Guild in the downstairs of the Main Building. They will become available to you after you complete the Between a Rock and a Hard Place Memory quest, which is part of the main story line in Sequence 3, and renovate the Barracks after the memory ends. Once you head downstairs, you can join the fight. There are 5 levels of timed fights, with each level adding an extra opponent and more time on the clock. You must complete the current fight level to unlock the next level. You don't have to bet anything in the initial fights, just use these to learn the best strategy for yourself. When you get to the final fight you will need to bet the max Florin amount of 500 and win the fight to receive the maximum payout and the trophy. The beginning fights are easy as you can get close and spam the to punch or the to kick. Here are some tips that should help you through the 5th and most frustrating level of Fight Club.
  • You can NOT use the Execution Chains in fight club. There are still Executions Combos, but you can't continue to the next enemy.
  • You can still use Grabs to take care of a dodging enemy, but the grabs take quite a bit of time to perform and when you are done the enemy you knock down is usually still alive and kicking him on the ground usually takes even longer.
  • You can still use Counters in the club of you hold the then press the as the enemy attacks you.
  • You can throw sand in the enemies face by holding down the to pick up some sand, then throw the sand by releasing the . Throwing sand will either stun an enemy for an Execution Combo to take him out fast, or stun him enough that he won't be able to dodge your punches.
  • This was the strategy I used for the final fight so if you are having trouble try this. As soon as the fight starts pick up some sand and throw it to stun 2-3 of the enemies. Head for one of the stunned enemies and perform an execution combo while watching for a sneak attack. You can interrupt your combo for a counter if someone attacks you, and the enemy you are executing will still be down for the entire fight. If someone tries to hit you, counter them and with any luck you will get two out of the way quickly. Either way as soon as you aren't attacking throw some more sand and attack the next enemy effected by the sand and hopefully you will get another quick hit execution. Keep repeating this pattern of Sand throwing and Executions/Counters until you are down to the last enemy. Hit him with some sand so he can't dodge and then beat the piss out of him, or if you are lucky enough get in one final Execution.

While you are playing as Ezio after you have completed the Who's Got Mail memory in Sequence 2 you will gain the option to Leave Animus in your menu if you press the button. When you leave the Animus you will be free to roam around as Desmond inside Villa Auditore and outside in Monteriggioni. You can stay inside for this trophy. When you leave the Animus, head over to the Computers where Shaun is located, then head to the small table with the computer on it to the left side of Shaun's work station.

Needle in a Haystack
Kill your target while hidden in a hay bale (Multiplayer Only).

This trophy can be challenging. I recommend trying to get this one out of the way while your level is still low before leveling up too much. The reason being is because the higher your level gets, the more people you have looking to assassinate you at the same time. To get this trophy you need to be hiding in either a hay pile OR a pile of leaves. The leaves are either the red or green piles you will find in the levels. I'm not sure if this works in bushes or not, but if someone finds out let me know. For this trophy you will need a little bit of patience and some luck. Find your pile to lay in, then watch your compass. As your target gets closer, the inner ring will fill up more. When your target gets next to the pile and has the appear above their head, assassinate them. You have to be HIDDEN in a pile for this trophy, because of this you can't jump into a pile to kill your target while they are hiding in the pile. Once you have killed one of your targets from inside a pile the trophy will unlock.

Strong Closer
Take the lead 10 seconds before the end of a session and go on to win (Multiplayer Only).

This one may be easier to do boosting, but if you get good at strategically getting kills you might just earn this while grinding playing towards your level 50 trophy. This trophy is exactly as it sounds, in the last 10 seconds you need to be losing. Doesn't matter in what place you are in as long as it isn't first. You need to get enough points to take first in this last 10 seconds AND you must hold on to win the match! If you take over first, then someone takes it from you, you will NOT get this trophy. Now that being said, you don't necessarily need to kill someone to get this trophy. If you are losing and get a Lure Bonus from someone killing a civilian which isn't you and take over first place you will also get the trophy. If you take over first in the last 10 seconds and hold on to win the match the trophy is yours.

Fast Learner
Kill your target and escape your pursuer in less than 10 seconds (Multiplayer Only).

This trophy is exactly how it sounds, when you have one or more Red arrows showing your pursuers in the upper left of the screen, what you must do is kill your intended target in anyway you find best, then you must escape your pursuer so one of the red triangles goes away. now a good way to escape is to hideout in groups of people where there is a duplicate of you. If you have the Decoy ability use your Decoy and hopefully the pursuer will kill the innocent victim look alike. Another good tactic is to find a nice bale of hay or pile of leaves that has a look a like by it and hide in there and hope that the pursuer kills your victim. To unlock this trophy you must have escaped one of your pursuers in 10 seconds or less from the time you kill your target.

Job Skills
During Open Conflict, kill your target and escape (Multiplayer Only).

This trophy is very similar to the Fast Learner trophy, with one huge difference, YOU MUST BE IN OPEN CONFLICT! What this means is you must have the Escape meter or hiding meter active at the time. Open Conflict is when you recognize your pursuer and the chase sequence begins. While this is active you need to kill your target and then escape your pursuer in the active chase sequence, not a different pursuer. You have an unlimited time to do this so if the chase last over a minute you will still get the trophy. Once you have achieved this the trophy will unlock.

Reach Level 50 (Multiplayer Only).

This is the big trophy that will consume most of your time playing this game. Sadly it takes twice as long playing the MP to get to level 50 than it does to complete all of the SP trophies. I recommend playing either Manhunt or Wanted MP maps for your online grind, as this seems to be the most efficient way of gaining EXP. If you are playing Manhunt remember the score that it shows is your total team combined score not your individual score! So if you see your team getting 9,000 don't get excited and think that you are getting 9,000 exp points. You will only get what you have contributed to the score. So if the 4 of you COMBINED have 9,000, but you have only contributed 1,000 exp points, that's all you will get credit credit for in exp points.

Now that being said, don't be one of these n00bs you see running all over the map non-stop. They may get more kills than you, but odds are they are only getting 100-200 points per kill. Take your time and be strategic and get a higher exp point amount per kill. Make sure you pay attention to your perks and abilities you will unlock as you progress in level and equip the streak bonuses to gain more exp.

To get to level 50, you will need 650,000 experience points. A decent average is about 3,000 per game and each game takes 10 minutes. At 3,000 per game it will take you about 40 hours to get to level 50. When you kill someone it will tell you on the bottom left what percentage you are at to the next level, and on your main MP menu if you go to Level Progression, you can see where you are at and what you need for each level and the unlockables per level.

Role Model
Get all the Co-op bonuses in 1 session (Multiplayer Only).

to get this trophy you will need to be playing a Co-op session online. You and your team mate must combine for ALL the Team Bonuses and the 2 End Bonuses available for co-op play in the SAME SESSION. This means Rounds 1 AND 2 you will have to complete this trophy. This trophy is probably easier boosting, but you may get this just from playing with an experienced player in the Co-op game.

For a good strategy to handle the Extreme Variation Bonus use this strategy originally posted by GFCrens on the Pre-Crash Site. The Hoff used his strategy and it gets two very enthusiastic thumbs up

This one doesn't really need boosting since it pops up naturally if you play a lot of Manhunt (my favourite type of multiplayer game).

Step 1: Preparation!
Get (at least) 4 people together at the same time (duh).

Step 2: Get it together!
Choose private match, Manhunt and a map with a remarkable meetingpoint (like the centre square in Monteriggioni).

Step 3: Be a model!
P1.1 = Team 1, player 1
P1.2 = Team 1, player 2
P2.1 = Team 2, player 1
P2.2 = Team 2, player 2

Act 1:
Chasers: Team 1
Targets: Team 2

P2.1 locks P1.2/P1.1, P2.2 stuns the locked target. After this, P2.2 locks the hunter that's left so P2.1 can stun him. Be sure to do it fast for the Knock-Out bonus (within 10 seconds)!

Bonuses Team 1:
- None
Bonuses Team 2:
- Co-Op Stun
- Knock Out

Act 2:
Team 1 starts running around, till both players trigger a chase. Team 2 stuns Team 1.

Bonuses Team 1:
- None
Bonuses Team 2:
- Rescue

Act 3:
P1.1 locks P2.1/P2.2, and P1.2 kills him. After this P1.2 locks the remaining target, so P1.1 can kill him (als within 10 seconds, for the Multi-kill bonus).

Bonuses Team 1:
- Co-Op Kill
- Multi-Kill
Bonuses Team 2:
- None

Act 4:
P1.1 starts running around to start a chase on P2.1&P2.2 at the same time. P1.2 can kill one of the targets. After this the remaining target has to escape P1.1 to prevent confusion. After this P1.2 triggers a chase on one of the targets, so P1.1 can kill him.

Bonuses Team 1:
- Diversion
Bonuses Team 2:
- None

After this, wait for round 2 to start, and repeat Act 1-4 (only the teams are changed ofcourse). After you completed this: Bling!

Overachiever
Score 750 points or more on a single kill (Multiplayer Only).

This is not nearly as difficult as it sounds as long as you aren't playing like a complete n00b. You will see the n00bs when you are online though, they are the players that are running full speed all over the map and get 15 kills at 100 points each and never win the map. All you need to do for this trophy is use some strategy. The kill bonuses are stackable. So if you kill your target while in a hiding spot like a haybale you will get a 200 bonus for a hiding spot and a 300 for a stealth kill. You are already at 500 points. If you wait for the bar to fill up for 3 seconds before you kill your target you will get another 150 for a Focus bonus and if that person happens to be someone who killed you before there's another 50 for a Revenge and you are instantly up to 700 points. If you get lucky and that person is within 10 meters of his target you will get a Savior bonus and the trophy will unlock. There are also score multipliers for loss streaks and kill streak bonuses you can get at later levels to increase your score per kill. So what I'm saying is take your time and be strategic about your gameplay. 6 kills at 600 per kill will get you a better chance at 1st, 2nd or 3rd than running around everywhere like a n00b. As soon as you get 750 points for ONE kill the trophy will unlock.

Abstergo Employee of the Month
Get every single bonus at least once (Multiplayer Only).

For this trophy you must receive every single Kill, Action and Team BONUS in the game at least once. The Bonuses are based on how you kill your enemies and how you perform in the game. You can view these bonuses in the main Online Menu under the Bonuses section. Unfortunately in this section it does NOT tell you which ones you have received or not. At the end of every single session where it shows your score, before you press to Rematch or Quit, if you press to the right you can view your in game Bonuses you received credit for and if you press right again, you can view your end of game bonuses earned as well. Below is a list of each bonus and how to achieve them.

For a good strategy to handle the Extreme Variation Bonus use this strategy originally posted by GFCrens on the Pre-Crash Site. The Hoff used his strategy and it gets two very enthusiastic thumbs up

Step 1: Preparation!
Get 3 people together and decide who is getting the bonus first/second/third and so on.

Step 2: Get it together!
Learn your role (watch the video below). Choose private match, alliance and map Rome. The leader must be sure to have Hidden Pistol and Poison as skills. As killstreak select Kill-Streak 3. (available at level 29 I believe).

Step 3: Killing time!
L = Leader (will be getting the EV-bonus)
V = Victim (round 1, chaser in round 2)
C = Chaser (round 1, victim in round 2)

Kill 1:
L hides in a haystack, V stands next to it, L waits till he's focused, then kills V (make sure C is right next to it).
New bonuses:
- First Blood
- Kill
- Silent
- Hidden
- Focus
- Savior

'Kill' 2:
L stuns C, not a kill, but indeed a bonus.
New bonuses:
- Stun

Kill 3:
V climbs up a roof, L locks him and allready holds down the Hidden Pistol button (/). After a few seconds V jumps so L can shoot him in Mid-Air.
New bonuses:
- Mid Air

'Kill' 4:
C starts to run around L to trigger a chase. After that C walks around a corner to get out of the sight. L must make sure to be close to C as the bar will decrease. Wait till L escaoed and voilá.
New bonuses:
- Escape
- Close call

Kill 5:
L hides in a group of civilians that look just like him. C kills one of the civilians.
New bonuses:
- Lure

Kill 6:
C stuns V, L kills V without running.
New bonuses:
- Grounded
- Incognito
- Kill-Streak

Kill 7:
L hangs on a ledge (of a roof), V is standing above L on the roof. L performes a drop-kill.
New bonuses:
- Drop kill

Kill 8:
L climbs on the (same) roof, and waits till V is within reach on the floor. L can press square, and perform a Air-Kill now.
New bonuses:
- Aerial Kill
- Acrobatic

Kill 9:
L poisons V.
New bonuses:
- Poison

Kill 10:
L runs to V and kills him, enough to make the kill discrete, but not enough to trigger a chase.
Kill 10 and 9 can be combined (I think)
New bonuses:
- Discrete

Extreme Variety must have popped up at this time. This bonus is considered the hardest one for Abstergo Employee of the Month. As a matter of fact, this was the only thing standing between me and the plat

Ahead of the Curve
Perform a double or triple escape (Multiplayer Only).

this one is only mildly difficult. As you progress in levels you will start to get multiple Pursuers after you at the same time. When a Pursuer gets to close and acts strangely, such as running towards you, he will no longer be Incognito, and a red triangle will appear above his head indicating an Escape sequence has begun. You will also get a red indicator bar that says Escape on the screen that has a meter that gets smaller as you try to get away. Once you are out of line of sight from the pursuer, the bar will turn yellow and it will say Hide and the bar will diminish faster. If you hide during this time, the meter will turn blue and diminish very quickly. To get this trophy you must have 2 or 3 active Pursuers engaged in an Escape sequence with a red arrow at the same time and you must be successful in your escape from all of them. Once you perform this feat the trophy will sound.
