Finished First Garrison
Story Related, Cannot Be Missed.
After completing the various tutorials and the first mission, the game will lead you to the first garrison outpost of the game. Complete the mission by clearing the garrison any way you see fit.
Way to Go, Garri-Son
Finish all the Garrisons
Scattered across the island are 13 Garrisons populated with various combinations of enemies. To complete a Garrison, simply kill every enemy at the base and the place will be yours. They're easily spotted, not only on your map, but they all have giant Omega symbols beaming from them into the sky. You'd only need to look up a bit to find which ones you have left to finish off.
Completing a Garrison grants you fast travel privileges to that area along with unlocking new Hostage Rescues, Predator Path missions, even Map Scans that reveal the locations of the various collectibles.
Kill Them All
Finish all the Predator's Path Quests
After clearing out Garrison posts for your own use, they will unlock more and more Predator's Path missions and Hostage Rescue missions. There are eight missions each and are scattered throughout the island and ask different tasks of you to complete. Upon completion you're rewarded with Weapon Attachments, CP experience, and Credits to spend. They are as follows;

Kill all the Animal Types
Blood Dragon has more than a dozen types of animals running or swimming around but it only counts a fraction of them for this trophy. Every animal listed below can be easily found and hunted on the island unless other wise noted. Even then, those animals are apart of a Predator's Path missions and aren't very easy to miss. Some are in areas indicated on the Map where the particular animal shape is present, so exploring is key, but shouldn't take very long to amass every animal on this list.
Robo-Croc (Found in the sewers during the Pretator's Path mission 'Turtle Killer'.)
Mutated Turtle (Found during the Pretator's Path mission 'Turtle Killer'.)
Black & White Tiger
Set Them Free
Destroy 5 Braincages
Braincages are devices that are fashioned to the heads of Blood Dragons in order to control them. They first appear in the mission What Is This Shit? and contains a large amount of Dragons with them on. Simply shooting them off before killing the Dragon will count toward this trophy and you should have no issue not getting this before the mission is completed.
If so happens you do miss it in that mission, there are a few Braincaged Dragons in the final mission of the game, I Must Break You.
Just the Tip
Kill a Dragon with the Bow
Blood Dragons are the toughest enemies in the game. Hell, it's the only animal that shows you its health in the top right hand corner of the screen when you're near it. On top of that arrows from your bow do absolutely jack in terms of damaging them. Much like the video below, it's much, much easier to weaken the beast with other weapons, and just when it's health is barely even visible in its bar, that's when you can start pelting the thing with your arsenal of archery.

See Dragon Slayer.
Kill 25 Dragons
Once you've found or lured a Dragon with a Cyber-Heart, you'll find that they are pretty tough, but they are no means invincible. Having a good upgraded weapon is on thing, but it can still feel like you're wasting ammo if you're just blasting away crazily. The key to killing a Blood Dragon quickly is hitting that glowing pink spot on their chests. Nailing that weak area is absolutely devastating to them, even with a mediocre weapon loadout. Better yet, beat the campaign and use the amazing Killstar to zap them into an oblivion.
To keep track, all Dragons killed will be counted in the Kills section of your statistics in the Data Console.

Find all of Dr. Carlyle's Notes
The island Blood Dragon takes place on is sectioned into quadrants; Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest. Once you take over a Garrison in one of those areas, a Map Scan floppy disk will be available in the Shop.
There are four scans in total for the corresponding parts of the island, and coast a whopping $500 a piece. Once purchased, every collectible in the game will show up on your main map. Simply press Select to view, and everything will be spelled out for you. Now all you have left is footwork, so go out there and snatch up all of 10 of Dr. Carlyle's Notes, 32 TV's, and 12 VHS tapes.
Like everything else in the game, collectibles are tracked in the Data Console in the pause menu.

Hail to the King
Reach Maximum Level and Become the Ultimate Badass
The maximum level to achieve in Blood Dragon is 30. After covering everything there is to do on the island, there is next to no way you can miss this. Utilizing takedowns, headshots, dragons kills, and collecting all the bits around adds up to more than enough to fill this quota. Simply just play the game and level up as this should come naturally.
After saving Darling, enter Combat Mode with a Dragon and Return to Stealth
At first, I and a few others thought this was glitched because it popped in seemingly random times, but in reality the description is a tad bit misleading in a way. Where the confusion lies is the rescue bit. In reality you need to engage a dragon after you've met with Dr Darling during the first mission of the game and completed the first Garrison.
After that enter Combat Mode by running around or just attacking a dragon and it will turn bright red. Then make the dragon disinterested in you so you can return to stealth mode, where it will turn back to bright green. You can go by this by throwing a cyber-heart to divert its attention while you hide, or simply finding a good bit of cover to hide behind.
It should also work just by running away from the dragon, which would explain it why the trophy popped for some folks when they were just going about their way. Accidentally alerting a dragon and escaping was the culprit here.
Own all Weapons Attachments
In Blood Dragon you're given one set of weapons (awesome ones at that). Each weapon has it's own attachments so you can you can customize your loadout as you see fit. Before you're able to purchase them, they must be unlocked by completing Hostage Rescues, Predator's Path Missions, gathering collectibles, and hunting the island's various cyber animals. All of the requirements are spelled out in the Store. Simply hover over the attachment you'd like and the required duty to unlock it given to you.

Jump Down from 50 Meters
One of the many great things featured in Blood Dragon is the absence of fall damage. This makes traversing the treacherous landscape a breeze and gives you way more options in terms moving about. Here, all you have to do is capitalize on it and basically throw yourself off a tall cliff-side or hilltop and stick the landing. You can even take advantage of the numerous Omega branded hang gliders by taking a short ride and falling from the sky.
The video below gives an example on the Dam located on the west part of the island, which is featured in a mission early on in the campaign.
