DL-Story-01: Status - Closed
Complete DL-Story-01: Jetstream.
This trophy is unlocked by completing the DLC regardless of the difficulty. Simply play through and finish the game and the trophy will be unlocked at the Mission Results screen.
Defeat Sen. Armstrong without taking any damage on Hard difficulty or above.
If you found the Armstrong boss fight in Raiden's campaign to be easy, well don't expect it to be as easy as that one because he is much harder here just because of his favorite new move which he likes to use a lot along with his annoying grab attack.
I recommend doing this on Revengeance difficulty just because of the damage output done by Taunting him and using a charged
to attack which deals around 13-18% of damage. You only get a few chances to use the normal charged
(you don't need combo it with the
ones. It's done by just standing and holding
) attack like when he creates cracks on the ground, when he sends out fire waves (not the firewall which divides the stage to sections) and when he uses an energy burst (when there is a red circle on the ground)
Since you will be taunting him a lot, parrying is useless here and you do need to perfect your dodging skills (
Most of the time he will be doing his grab and the new move he has. If Armstrong uses his grabs, you can quickly counter him with a quick slash from
(while running) +
when you manage to dodge the grab attack. If the enraged mode from the taunt wears off, just taunt him again but make sure it is safe before you taunt him in order to dodge quickly.
There will be a checkpoint when you reduce his health to 50% so take your time to dodge and counter when the time is right.

Master of the Wind
Complete DL-Story-01: Jetstream on Revengeance difficulty in one hour or less.
This one is easier than it looks since most fights are can be skipped just by going through the whole DLC with the trusted stealth equipment, the cardboard box. You will probably be able to finish this DLC around 25-30 minutes if you skip most fights.
Make sure that you have Nanopastes before you reach the final area of the DLC.
The first part of the DLC is the sewer area and you can just run pass through the soldiers and using the cardboard box to hide against the metal gears until you get to the first boss which is Blade Wolf.
All of Wolf's attacks are can be blocked. Don't bother taunting him since he is too fast for you to go head on and attack. What you are just going to do here is to parry all his attacks until he uses that Spinning Charge Attack
of his where when you manage to do a Perfect Parry
, Blade Wolf won't have time to recover from the parry and the counter will hit him dealing around 15-18% damage. Keep blocking until he uses that attack and Wolf will go down quick. This is the best way to end this boss fight quickly.
After the sewer area you will now enter the facility. Again good use of the cardboard box, you can skip most fights except the freight elevator area.
The next boss will be on a hangar once you clear the freight elevator area.
Boss: Metal Gear Ray
MG Ray here is almost the same as the one in Raiden's campaign except that it is just more aggressive. The only attacks you can't parry are the Plasma Beam and the Missiles (you can cut these though). Unlike on Raiden's campaign, parrying it's attacks won't let you enter Blade Mode right away but it will make the boss fall on the ground for a few seconds. Just use a charge
to chip away its health until you enter Blade Mode dealing major damage to MG Ray.
After the fight, the next area will be the Japanese Garden. You will be forced to fight 3 Geckos here, all you need to do is gather them close together and perfect parry their attacks so that you can enter Blade Mode and just Zandatsu them.
Next will be the Server Room. When you are going to search for the keycard, just skip the enemies below and go back to where you came in and you will fight two soldiers and one mastiff here. The armored soldier holds the key to the next area.
Boss: Senator Armstrong
The hardest part of this DLC. To end this battle quick, I recommend that you don't parry his attacks because you will be taunting him most of the time. The taunt increases the damage out put that the charged
When the battle starts quickly taunt him and use dodge cancel to reduce the taunt animation and attack him right away. After he finishes his enraged animation quickly do
(while moving) +
then hold it to charge the second attack and do this two times to quickly chip away 25% damage.
Most of the time he will be using his new move where he turns into some kind of fireball or whatever it is plus a grab attack. When he does the grab attack, just dodge it (
) and you can quickly counter him with
(while moving) +
but don't hold the
here. When he uses his new move, you can't do anything here but to dodge it (
) and wait for the moment to taunt him again.
The only time you will use a normal charged
is either when after he uses the flaming waves (not the firewall) attack or when after he uses a blast wave attack (when there is a red circle on the ground).
When you managed to get his HP to 50% it's time to get a little breather but be careful not to miss on the Zandatsu sequence when senator throws helicopters at you and when you are successful there will be a checkpoint and do the steps above again dodging and waiting for the right moment to counter. Don't forget to taunt him to recast the enraged mode.
Defeat 100 enemies in DL-Story-01: Jetstream's Story Mode using Quick Draw.
Doing this in one sitting and one playthrough is impossible UNLESS you do this on VR Missions or else you should expect to be doing this a lot and having a lot of playthroughs. So to save time like I said and you want to do this in one playthrough, you can repeatedly do VR Missions and just spam and hold the
button for the quick draw move. Don't forget to taunt enemies with the
button to increase your damage against them.
If you don't want to do it on your first playthrough well don't worry since the kill count stacks and you can continue it on the succeeding playthroughs that you will be doing.
After you have your 100th kill, the trophy should pop out by then.
