[top]Tips & Strategies

  • COVER IS YOUR FRIEND. Cover is the most important thing in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. It has a wide range of cover options for you to choose from so choose your next cover wisely.
  • THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. Sam can pull many magnificent stunts from sliding down poles, climbing out windows and across buildings, jumping of rails to knock out guards, etc. So If you are stuck on a mission, start thinking of other ways to complete it that you wouldn't usually have thought of.
  • PLAN AHEAD. Planning is one of the key ingredients to Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Plan what your next move will be, then act on it.
  • PATIENCE. You will need to be very patient in this game. A lot of the guards like to gossip like girls in this game so if you see two guards having a chat let them have it and see where they move to. This may make getting through some levels very easy.
  • SHADOWS. Believe it or not, shadows actually work in this game. You want to take advantage of this and keep in the shadows as much as possible.
  • LIGHTS. shooting out lights is really noisy and will attract guards very easily. Counter this by hiding away from the light you are going to shoot out so they don't look around that light for you.
  • MOVE QUICKLY AND QUIETLY. Don't stay in one position too long. They will eventually find you. When you see a window to move, take it (if it's not too risky). Also, crouching reduces the amount of noise Sam makes while moving around.
  • MONEY. Money is what you will need to upgrade and buy gadgets and upgrade your paladin to get your gizmos (HUD, etc.). If you are a little short, jump into Spies Vs. Mercs and go for the objectives. You will get a ton of cash here that you can spend to get what you need!

4th Echelon Officer
Complete every single player mission on Perfectionist difficulty

This trophy will unlock after the ALL single-player missions are complete!

You will need to complete ALL Single Player campaign missions AND 4E Missions (except for Briggs).This could be quite a hard trophy to obtain if you are not used to Splinter Cell. But I recommend doing a Ghost playthrough and just worry about what your next move is. But this is a brutal difficulty! Two shots and you will have to start from your last checkpoint. So try to think outside the box like going out windows to avoid getting in a fight with enemies or use shoot lights to attract guards and take them out silently and most importantly STAY IN COVER. All these things will make this playthrough much more easier then you would expect. Although, this is not a walk in the park!

Evidence Concealed
Hide 5 bodies in containers

In near the end of mission 1 'Safehouse' you will be told to go to a police station. To get to this police station you will need to go through this road to get to the area you need to be in. Before you actually enter the road there will be a guard blocking the door talking to another guard. Take cover behind the door and wait for their conversation finishes. The second guard will walk off and the other guard will stand there for around about 30 seconds, then walk off. You don't want that to happen. As soon as that other guard walks away you want to knock the remaining guard out (or kill him) and there will be a crate behind the open door. Chuck his body into that and rinse and repeat. I have added a video below to show you what I mean and also an alternate method if you aren't playing on your perfectionist playthrough.

[top]

No Kill Option Engaged
Complete the single player campaign without killing anyone as Sam Fisher

This isn't as hard as you would think as there is various ways to call enemies or make enemies go to one particular area and also many Non-Lethal attacks. A few tips are ALWAYS change to Non-Lethal attacks by holding a direction pad button and switching to Non-Lethal and also using the Crossbow, that is also a Non-Lethal form of attack. You may die a lot more then you are used to but if you keep at it it shouldn't be too hard

[top]

Distraction Tactician
Call an enemy over, then take them down undetected when they investigate

You will most likely get this without even trying. But if you don't restart the first mission 'Safehouse'. The place I thought was the best place to get it was in a long hallway on your way to the police station. Right after you 'Bag & Tag" The HVT go through two doors until you come to a long hallway. go and take cover behind the wall, hit and an enemy will walk over. Take him out and you will obtain the trophy!

Tri-Rotor Functionality
Disable a security device using the Tri-Rotor

First off you will need to equip Sam with the Tri-Rotor Drone. This can be bought before the mission and on the paladin. The drone costs $72,000, and upgrading isn't required.

You can obtain this in the first part of the mission Special Missions HQ. As soon as the mission starts head over to the first bit of cover you see. Once you are sure you can't be seen pull out your Tri-Rotor Drone. Steer it toward the security camera and press to shoot a sticky shocker dart. This will destroy the camera and the trophy should pop up soon after.

Enhanced Lethality Demonstrated
Using Mark & Execute, take down 6 enemies in under 14 seconds

Near the end of Insurgent Stronghold, you will be under two enemies. Shoot above you and you will alert the 2 guards on top of you and the two guards in the next room. quickly go into the next room and mark them then continue to climb up to the window and mark the guy facing the road as soon as you can execute the guys on the bottom floor (just wait till they come close) press and it will execute the soldiers. Now you have 14 seconds to run out onto the road to mark and execute the remaining three soldiers. After you do that the trophy will pop!

[top]

Hostile Shield Secured
Take down a Shielded Infantryman hand to hand and take his shield

You will come up to a section in the mission 'Special Missions HQ' and there will be two metal detectors and a huge door at the end of the hallway. Go through the metal detectors and you will be bought to a small cutscene of some men running out of the door and a heavy with a shield. After the short cutscene, shoot all the normal enemies and let the heavy come to you. Just as the heavy is reaching you start blind firing a the heavy, the heavy will drop to the ground. Now you have a few seconds to run up behind the heavy and kill him. Then grab his shield and the trophy should pop!

Hostages Secured
Save the hostages in the Transit Yards

As soon as you get through the first part of the train head up onto the roof. From there you will reach the second part of the train. Now you want to press to break the glass. Quickly kill the two men and proceed to the next door. After you get in there throw sleeping gas to knock them all out. A cutscene will play and you will get the trophy!

Mission Footprint Zero
Complete a single player mission without being detected during gameplay

This is easiest done on the first mission "Safehouse". The thing you will have to remember here is that patience is the best way to get around enemies. Some enemies have really long dialogues, so try and wait it out. Also if you can avoid enemies, do it. Because if they detect you before you have a chance to take them out, you will have a lot of problems. Also, if you have been seen you can restart the checkpoint or go out into the middle of a bunch of enemies and let them kill you. This happened to me 2 or 3 times on the first mission and I still got the trophy.

Support Ops
Get 10 objective assists in Spies vs. Mercs

This can be boosted in Private Match.

This is actually much easier then it looks. Although through your multiplayer playthrough. But if you somehow don't earn this by the end of the multiplayer step all you need to do is let someone else hack the terminal and stay in the radius of the hacking zone. You will get it in no time!

If you are boosting for this trophy simply get your friend to go into a Private Match with you. Go on the same team. Set the Game of 10 minutes (if the map is small and you and your friend are fast you could set it as 1 minute). Set the Hacking time to Instant and stay together!! It should only take 3-4 games max to complete each person.

NOTE: It has to be a SUCCESSFUL hack to count.

[top]

Lethal Versatility
Win a match in each Spies vs. Mercs game mode

This can be boosted for in a private match.

This is a really easy gold and you will probably earn this during your multiplayer run. All you have to is win a single game of:
  • SvM Classic
  • SvM Blacklist
  • Extraction
  • Uplink Control
  • Team Deathmatch

[top]

Firearm Accessed
Unlock a Merc's Light Machine Gun

After you purchase your Custom Merc kit go to edit it. You will now need to scroll down to "Alternate Weapon" and scroll to the very bottom till you reach Light Machine Guns. You will need $120,000 and 1 token to purchase it. Purchase one and the trophy will unlock.

[top]

Personal Kit
Unlock a custom loadout slot for Spy or Merc

Very very simple trophy. After a game press to open up the "Customize Gear" menu. After that purchase a Custom Loadout from either the Spys or the Mercs. I highly recommend Mercs because it will be easier to obtain Firearm Accessed without having to spend unnecessary coins and tokens.

[top]

Trusted Agent
Achieve Rank 10 in Spies vs. Mercs

This can be boosted for in a private match by yourself!!!

This will come during natural progression. But if you do find it a bit hard to obtain XP there are some tips on how to maximise your XP.
  • Always go to hack the objectives as this usually gives you 700 XP each hacked objective.
  • Upgrade the infirmary on the Paladin to at least level 2 (one upgrade).
  • Play with friends or partners!!!
If you follow some of these steps you should get level 10 in no time at all!!!

Rated Hacker
Hack a terminal in a Spies v. Mercs SvM Blacklist or SvM Classic match

This can be boosted for in a private match by yourself!!!

Game mode: SvM Classic (This being 2v2 it will be easier to hack and succeed.)

This is actually a very easy silver trophy to get. All you will need as a Spy is a gun to enhance your chances of getting this trophy. What you want to do is choose a the darkest terminal area and hack that one. Next, Hide in the darkest place you can find and don't move around until you HAVE TO! After that wait till the hack is completed and the trophy will pop!


[top]

Rated Intel Courier
Carry home the intel in an Spies vs. Mercs Extraction match

This can be boosted for in a private match by yourself!!!

There is no easy way to get this trophy but all I can suggest is play with friends and have them cover you. Also use a lightish weapon so you can move faster.

[top]

Rated Aggressor
Capture a control point in a Spies vs. Mercs Uplink Control match

This can be boosted for in a private match by yourself!!!

I highly suggest playing with friends, as this trophy can be quite difficult. You need to be the LAST person to hack the control point. After it's done the trophy will pop! Of coarse there is always the easy way out...
