Bonus for completing the game on Hardcore difficulty.
Hardcore can be a bit or a pain but its not impossible hard. The difficulty trophies do stack so you can start the game on Hardcore mode. So helpful little hints to beating the game in this difficulty are:
Always keep moving
Use your grapple and your parachute to keep on the move and away from mass groups of enemies. Don't forget to roll when being shot at to quickly dodge the rounds.
Theres always a helicopter when you need one
There are helicopters everywhere if you know where to look and 90% of them are armed so make an assault from the air if the objectives call for an assault.
Keep your distance
Don't just jump right into a base and expect to complete the mission. Keep back and try to find a way in that looks a little less protect or use a rocket launcher and just take out your target from a distance
Don't be afraid to run away
When your health gets low, or your heat gets too high for you to handle, don't be afraid to use your grapple and parachute to slingshot your way out of trouble. If you're low on health go grab some and if your heat is the issue evade it and come back. Don't try to stick around and complete the mission if you are on the verge of death. This will only lead to aggravation and it won't take you long to get away from the action, regroup, and renew your assault. While agency missions won't be as easy to escape from, this method works well for location completing and faction missions.
Gaining a Foothold
Complete 3 stronghold takeovers.
See Conqueror of Panau
Conqueror of Panau
Complete 9 stronghold takeovers
There are exactly 9 stronghold takeovers in this game. 3 for each faction compete missions or cause chaos to unlock the next one. When you unlock a stronghold takeover one for each faction will unlock so 3 total so you only have to unlock a stronghold 3 times. Just protect the factions guy and kill the stronghold commander to complete the takeover.
A Trusted Ally
Complete 49 faction missions.
There are 49 missions exactly and you probably won't get them done before the final story mission. So you will have to complete some of them in mercenary mode.
First Taste of Chaos
Cause chaos for the first time.
You should easily get this on the first mission. If something has a health bar and it's red shoot at it to make it blow up and cause chaos.
Complete 150 sabotages.
Complete 1000 sabotages.
This is one of those trophies that you don't have to work for. Whenever you destroy something that belongs to the Panua Goverment its counted as a sabotage. i.e. Fuel Tanks, Guard Towers, Fuel Barrels, Radio Masts and Generators. You will get this without even trying.
Assassinate 25 colonels
When you find a colonel he will always have a handful of elites around him so it's best to approach him from a direction that you can get a long shot from. Take out your sniper rifle or assault rifle and aim for the head. Once he is killed its best just to make your way out of the area. If you shoot at a colonel and don't kill him, they sometimes disappear for a while.

Up to the Challenge 1
Complete 10 challenges.
See Up to the Challenge 2
Up to the Challenge 2
Complete 50 challenges.
Challenges consist of races. Some are car, some are plane and a few are boat races. They are all ranked by difficulty from 1-3 stars. Even with the 3 star races, very few of them are actually difficult. In between missions just get some down and you should get 50 done before long. You can check how many challenges you have completed in the stats menu on your PDA.
Leaving No Rock Unturned
Acquire 1000 resource items.
You would think this trophy would be super hard but really its super easy and you will barely have to try for this one. There are 2700 resources across the map. Above your map on your HUD you will see a signal bar that will guide you to a resource item. Keep walking and as it gets stronger your getting closer. When the Signal starts flashing your close to the resource and a white arrow will show up on your HUD guiding you to the item.
Acquire 100 resource items.
See Leaving No Rock Unturned
Collect 150 faction items.
This trophy is very easy each faction has items scattered across the map that you need to collect. When you open up you map in your PDA you will see blue dots. These will be you faction items collect 150 of them and the trophy is yours.
Discover 100 locations.
The easiest way to do this is to get a plane and fly low over any buildings you see. If you want to coordinate a little better open your PDA and all the white dots are areas you have explored yet so just fly over them really low and you will discover the location.
Reach 100% complete in 15 locations.
See Freeroamer 2
Reach 100% complete in 100 locations.
This trophy is easily done on some of the smaller villages and bases. For this trophy you need to destroy all Panua Goverment Facilities and Find all Resources in the Town/Base. These include Fuel Tanks, Sam Sites, Radio Towers, Generators, Weapon Parts, Vehicle Parts, Armor Upgrade, Money Stashes. I suggest using a helicopter and destroy everything in the town then fly around and collect the resources. Some of the smaller towns have only 1 thing to collect and 2 things to destroy so just stick with the small ones and you will have it in no time.
Kill 750 enemies.
This one is just as basic as it sounds and you will get over time and you will definitely get it before your halfway done with the story missions. You can keep track of your progress with the Stat menu in your PDA.
Unarmed and Dangerous
Kill 50 enemies using melee attacks.
Just run up to an enemy and hit
until they fall. This can be kinda hard when you have larger groups of enemies so just do this when you see one or two left. You can keep track of your melee kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
Gravity is a Bitch!
Kill 30 enemies by using the grappling hook and making them fall to their death.
This one is a pretty easy way to kill people once you find people that are above you. If someone is right next to a ledge on a level about you just shoot them with the grappling hook (
) and you will pull them off the ledge to their death. You can keep track of your fall kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
"Gravity is a Bitch!" Video
Kill 5 enemies by dragging them behind a vehicle with the grappling hook.
To attach an enemy to your car you aim at the enemy and then grapple AND HOLD THEM them by pressing and holding
and then turn your aim to the car and let go of
. Then get in the car and start driving. Here is a video of me doing it. You can keep track of your drag kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
"Follow Me!" Video
Hang 'em High!
Kill 30 enemies while they're suspended in the air with the grappling hook.
To suspend an enemy in the air you must aim at them, press
and hold it and then move your aim to an object higher up and let go. This will make it so one end of your grapple is on the high object and your enemy is dangling on the end. For this trophy, simply shoot them while they are up there and repeat 30 times. You can keep track of your hang kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
"Hang 'em High!" Video
Kill 5 enemies by smashing them with an object tethered to your vehicle with the grappling hook.
This one can be a bit tricky. For this trophy you are going to want a chopper that is capable of lifting a car. Now use your grappling hook to tether the car and the chopper together. Get in the chopper and find a group of enemies (biggest groups hang out around colonels and propaganda trailers). Now drop low enough with the chopper so that the car is touching the group and go forward and hopefully crash into and kill as many enemies as possible with the car. You can keep track of wrecking ball kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
"Wrecking Ball!" Video
Kill 5 enemies with the melee attack while they're suspended with the grappling hook.
To suspend an enemy in the air you must aim at them, press
and hold it and then move your aim to an object higher up and let go. This will make it so one end of your grapple is on the high object and your enemy is dangling on the end. For this trophy just run up to them and hit them with
to kill them. Do this 5 times and the trophy is yours. You can keep track of your piŮata kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
"PiŮata Party" Video
Kill 30 enemies while they're falling through the air.
This one is easier than it sounds because you have an easy way to get an enemy up into the air attached to your left arm. Aim at an enemy on the ground and press
and you will shoot them with a grapple and pull them in the air. This will give you time to shoot them a few times but you may need to do this a few times to get the kill. Repeat this 30 times. You can keep track of your juggler kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
Kill 30 enemies by mowing them down with vehicles.
This one is pretty self explanatory. When you get heat on you jump in a vehicle and hit your enemies as hard as you can to kill them. Repeat this 30 times. You can keep track of your road kills by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
Kill 50 enemies with headshots.
You can use the sniper rifle to do this one or use your zoom function to easily get headshots. If you just run and gun, the auto aim will just place the reticule in the enemies chest and this will not work. To use the zoom function on any gun just click
and aim for the head. You can keep track of your headshots by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
You can concentrate on doing this right off the bat like I did but you really don't have to. Even after making sure I got headshots on every enemy, I still get about 1 headshot per 3 kills.
Kill 20 enemies in 60 seconds.
This can easily be done on most sabotage missions but if you happened to miss it later in the game you will do a mission for the Ular Boys called "Holy Smoke" Each time the enemy waves advance on you there are groups of 10 to 15 with very small intervals before the next advance so you will easily get it during this mission.
Kill 50 enemies in a row with inventory weapons without losing health.
This trophy can be easily done on the "Oil for Blood" Stronghold mission for the Roaches. Enemies will come in 5 to 10 man groups and will be far enough away to easily takeout using the assault rifle and zooming in. Just be sure to hang back behind your guys so you can stay out of the range of the enemies while picking them off. You should get this trophy right before the stronghold commander shows up.
Destroy 30 objects in 60 seconds.
This is the first place I found to get this and its actually within the first like 10 minutes of the game. When you grapple the chopper to move to the next area, go past the last memory card, kill the guys in the machine gun turrets and use one to do this...
"Destruction Frenzy" Video
One thing the video misses is right before it starts I had destroyed some stuff where I'm shooting at the beginning of the video.
Drive 30 different vehicles.
While you drive around, every time you see a new vehicle jump out of yours and hop in the new one. You can keep track of your unique vehicles by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
Go to Try Anything Once for more information.
Trying Anything Once
Drive all 104 vehicles.
For the most part just jump into any vehicle you see that you don't think you have been in. You can check which vehicles you are missing in your PDA.
Here is a vehicle list with pictures. I do not take credit for the creation of this list. Also, while "RoadRash-" did not make this list himself, he tipped me off to this list so rep him if you found this link usefull.
Just Cause 2 Vehicle List
Travel 75 kilometers by land vehicle.
You will get this one if you travel from place to place with the car at least some of the time. You can keep track of your kilometers driven by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
Please Step Out of the Vehicle
Hijack 50 enemy vehicles.
To Hijack a vehicle you much grapple yourself onto it and kill all the passengers. When the passengers are all gone you will hit
to enter the vehicle. You will then have to go through a button sequence to get the driver out. Once hes gone the Hijack will be complete. You will find yourself doing this a lot with helicopters responding to the chaos you create. You can keep track of your hijacks by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
Get 100 stunt driver points.
Everytime you get airborne when driving a vehicle you get a stunt point. 1 Stunt point per jump. The best place to farm these stunt points are on the south west island near the town of Kampung Gunung Merah there are a bunch of giant ramps that are one after another just make sure you upgrade one of your agency vehicles so it has alot of armor.
You also receive stunt points for driving at a high rate of speed for extended time with the high speed sports cars. I first discovered this in the Garret Traver-Z. Find a long stretch of interstate (around Panau City is best) and just cruise. Once you get up to speed you should receive a stunt point for every 5 seconds of driving fast.
Reach 50% completion in the normal mode or mercenary mode.
Mercenary mode is simply what the game is called once you finish the story missions. Your completion rate goes up in this game for pretty much everything you do whether it be destroying property, doing missions (faction, agency, or stronghold takeover) finding new locations. Also make sure to not only FIND locations but also to COMPLETE them. To do this destroy every piece of government property and find every weapon part, vehicle part, money stash, or armor upgrade in the location. You can check your completion rate every time you save your game or in the stats menu.
Open the parachute and then land on foot 300 meters above the starting height.
The key here is finding a mountain that is not too steep but more of a gradual incline. You also need to climb it at an angle because if you try to climb it straight on your more likely to touch down.
"Parachute Climber" Video
I Believe I Can Fly
Base jump 1000 meters.
The blimps in this video are on the eastern side of the map. If you open your world map they are a pretty big object in the middle of a bunch of islands (Coordinates: X: 29584 m | Y: 11435 m). Just take a plane or chopper over there. IMPORTANT:
Make sure that you JUMP off and don't just fall off the blimp. You will know you jumped and didn't fall if it keeps track of your distance as you fall. Press
forward to fall faster.
"I Believe I Can Fly" Video
Pass under 30 unique bridges in Panau.
There are more than 30 bridges in the game so you will easily get this one done. Just find a river and follow it with your plane going under each bridge you see along the way. When you fly under one that you haven't gone under before it will be counted as a bridge limbo. You can keep track of your bridge limbos by looking in the stats menu on your PDA.
Fly an airplane close to the ground for 30 seconds.
Go to any airport and find an airplane then just fly it as low as you can over the water for 30 seconds very easy just watch out for boats when you do this.

Top of the World
Stand on foot at the highest point of Panau.

"Top of the World" Video
Terror's video here shows him flying to this spot but you can also parachute climb to it. I was just messing around with the parachute climbing for the Parachute Climber
trophy and found myself in that area. I would not however suggest doing it that way.
