"Combining the spy mythology and bold aesthetics of the 1950's and 1960's and set during the Cold War, CounterSpy™ focuses on the rogue third spy agency, C.O.U.N.T.E.R., that keeps the world's super powers at bay. Just as each side of the ongoing conflict gets close to unleashing a blow of earthshaking proportions, C.O.U.N.T.E.R. jumps into action, stealthily sabotaging their dastardly plans and deceptively maintaining world peace."

[top]Tips & Strategies

  • When doing your playthrough without using a Continue, if you feel like your going to fail just quit and start the mission over again.
  • Keep in mind that selecting "No" for Continue will result in game over and you'll have to start from the very beginning.
  • With your gun aim at the Officers wearing white uniforms to lower your Defcon level.
  • Explore for dossier vaults, first aid lockers, ammo lockers, lockers, weapon blueprint vaults, and formula vaults whenever you have cleared the enemies.
  • Be careful with the red uniform enemies as they hold rocket launchers. If you are spotted they will launch a rocket at you and you can shoot it while it's in mid-air killing any enemies surrounding the explosion of the rocket.
  • Always take cover to avoid the chances of being seen.
  • Refill your ammo because at any given point you can run out.
  • Do not leave an area with enemies in it, it will raise your Defcon level.
  • You can use the Precision Aim formula to shoot through armor.
  • Use the Silent Runner formula to takedown enemies easier and quicker.


Step 1. Complete me while I'm easy (Complete the game on Normal difficulty)
From the start of the game you will automatically start off on Normal difficulty. While on this playthrough try working on most of the trophies especially the kill based trophies as it'll be much easier than the other difficulties. Attempt going for Super Spy and On Target during this playthrough because these trophies can be a pain later while attempting them on a higher difficulty. I recommend for you to purchase the Silent Runner formula if you have acquired the formula, it'll make taking down enemies much easier as you can run towards them and they won't be able to hear your footsteps.

By the end of this playthrough you should have unlocked:
  • Welcome to C.O.U.N.T.E.R
  • Load Em Up
  • Silent Killer
  • Sharpshooter
  • Idle Hands
  • International Nemesis
  • Professional
  • On Target
  • Super Spy
  • First Strike

Step 2. I'm only getting harder! (Complete the game on Advanced difficulty)
Once you complete your first playthrough on Normal difficulty, start a new game on Advanced difficulty. The enemies just keep on getting harder, and more cameras are monitoring right from the start. For this playthrough I'd recommend the Perforator Rifle which if a high-powered assault rifle if you just want to go all guns blazing on enemies as this weapon will cause a lot of damage or the Hushmaker Rifle which is a suppressed assault rifle if you want to stealthily make your way through this playthrough. I recommend for you to purchase the Silent Runner formula if you have acquired the formula, it'll make taking down enemies much easier as you can run towards them and they won't be able to hear your footsteps.If you haven't yet, once you find all the blueprints for the Sandman Sleeper purchase it and equip it. When your in a mission tranquilize one enemy and let another see him lying on the floor while you remain undetected. Good luck!

By the end of this playthrough you should have unlocked:
  • Sleeping on the Job

Step 3. Title: The Equalizer (Complete the game on Expert difficulty)
Once you have completed the game on Advanced difficulty, Expert difficulty will unlock. Start a new game and play on Expert difficulty. Use the same strategies I've given for the Advanced difficulty but keep in mind this is as challenging as the game can get.

By the end of this playthrough you should have unlocked:
  • World Peace... For Now

If there are any trophies you need to unlock, work on them in this playthrough or start a new game on whichever difficulty you wish to play to achieve them.


Welcome to C.O.U.N.T.E.R.
Complete the tutorial.

Story-related. This trophy will unlock upon completion of the Tutorial level at the start of the game.

Load Em Up
Equip all available slots with weapons.

As you play through the game you will come across blueprints for weapons that can be purchased with in-game money you find my looting lockers and discovering intel. You are able to equip yourself with a total of 4 weapons and you can equip them to which ever slot you'd like using your d-pad. Once you purchase and equip yourself with a weapon in each slot this trophy will unlock.

Silent Killer
Execute 10 stealth takedowns in one mission.

To perform a stealth takedown simply use behind an enemy without being spotted. If you do this 10 times in one single mission, this trophy will unlock. Keep in mind that using your Diplomatic Pistol won't count towards this trophy, only melee takedowns do.

Execute 5 successful headshots in a row.

For this trophy you need to kill 5 enemies in a row with headshots. You can headshot kill the enemies with any weapon but I'd suggest for you to purchase the silenced Diplomatic Pistol in the weapon store and take the enemies out that way since it'll make it a lot easier.

Cooking With Gas
Shoot an enemy rocket projectile while it is in mid-air.

Later on in the game there will be enemies dressed in a red uniform who shoot rocket projectiles at you. For this trophy you must shoot at a rocket projectile while it's in mid-air targeting you, it'll then explode and will also kill any enemy near the explosion.

Explosives Expert
Take out at least 5 guards with one explosive.

While playing through the game you will run into red barrels and boxes, these are explosives. For this trophy you have to kill 5 enemies with one explosion. Wait until you are an area where there are more than 5 enemies around the explosives, to higher your chances of getting the five kills, once you find a good spot shoot the barrel or box which will explode and kill the soldiers surrounding it.

Sleeping on the Job
A guard sees a tranquilized guard while player remains undetected.

in order to be able to tranquilize enemies you have to find the blueprints for the Sandman Sleeper. Once you have found the blueprints purchase it for $3,500 and equip it. For this trophy find a good area with a few guards and tranquilize one of them, then just wait for a guard to see him sleeping. You'll probably get this throughout your second playthrough.

Idle Hands
Search all lockers in a single mission. Cannot earn in Tutorial.

Throughout the levels you will come across lockers. For this trophy all you have to do is locate all the lockers in a single mission and open them by pressing . While playing the mission look around thoroughly and you won't have any problems finding all of them as they are pretty notable. This trophy cannot be obtained in the tutorial level.

International Nemesis
Loot a rival agent. (Online Only)

This trophy is kind of misleading. There is no multiplayer in this game but in order to obtain this trophy you have to be connected online. After playing a good amount of the game, you will soon be challenged to surpass the score of another player in a mission. Once you beat their score they will now be considered a rival. On your next mission after beating your rivals score, there will be a body of a downed agent which is your rival, that you'll have to loot. All you have to do is find the body and once found press to loot their body. There will be more opportunities to do this if you miss out on one mission.

Score 10000 points or more on a single mission.

Trying using stealth as much as you can as this will increase your multiplier racking you more points. In later missions you will have more enemies to kill so it makes it easier for you to score 10,000 or more. Personally, I ended up unlocking this trophy in the final mission when going to stop the launch of the nukes. Once you achieve a score of 10,000 or more on a single mission this trophy will unlock. Good luck!

Super Spy
Complete a mission without being seen by a single enemy.

This is one of the most difficulty trophies in the game that requires patience. In order for this trophy to unlock you have to complete a mission without being seen. Make sure to be equipped with the Diplomatic Pistol as it is silenced and use stealth throughout the whole mission. When taking out an enemy go for headshot kills as it'll kill them right away and lower the chances of you being seen unless you kill them quick enough. Try skipping as many enemies as you can to make this easier, just kill the enemies that need to be killed to proceed to the next room. If an enemy is alerted which you'll know when you see the "?" on the screen, that doesn't mean they've seen you, they just know something's up so try to kill them as fast as possible before they send out an alert. Attempt this in early story missions on Normal difficulty as it'll make it a lot less challenging.

First Strike
Stop the superpowers from launching the nukes.

Story-related. This trophy will unlock once you complete the game.

On Target
Beat the game without using a Continue.

This trophy is missable. In order to unlock this trophy you have to complete the game without using a Continue. In order to get a Continue you will have to raise your Defcon level from low to high meaning from Defcon 5 to Defcon 1. If your Defcon level reaches 1 be very careful and try not to raise it even more by failing to kill an enemy or dying, if you do the timer will start from 60 seconds and decrease until the superpower nukes are launched. When the nukes are launched this is where you'll be asked to Continue, but if you select "Yes" you will restart your latest mission causing this trophy to not unlock. If you select "No" it'll be game over and back to the beginning you go.

What I did to prevent this from happening is quit the mission before the timer hits zero, so keep this in mind as this will really help.

World Peace... For Now
Beat the game on all difficulties.

Once you complete the game on all 3 difficulties; Normal, Advanced & Expert, this trophy will unlock. Keep in mind that you start off the game playing on Normal difficulty and once you complete it on that difficulty Advanced is then unlocked, after completing the game on Advanced then Expert is unlocked. Be careful and be patient the game only gets challenging.
