[top]Tips & Strategies

The fastest way to earn these two trophies is to do them solo.

Equip a fast melee weapon with decent damage.

Pick an easy, low level exterminate mission to repeat 10 times.


Equip a fast melee weapon that deals decent damage and remove all other weapons and sentinels.

Pick a low level exterminate mission and do it ten times solo.

Keep melee weapon in block position to block enemy weapons fire, and walk through the mission like that. 10 runs (walks) through a mission like this should get you both trophies.


The Sword Alone
Complete 10 missions without any primary or secondary weapons equipped.

There are two ways to earn this trophy. The fastest way is to remove all weapons except your melee weapon and then follow a group through 10 missions. You should also remove your sentinel f you have one. Try to do faster missions like exterminate or deception missions. You could have this trophy inside of 20 minutes if you can find a group to carry you through 10 fast missions.

The other way , while taking longer will enable you to earn h other trophy in this guide at the same time. For this way, you will need to remove your primary and secondary weapons as well as your sentinel if you have one.

Pick an easy exterminate mission, preferably on Mars or Venus. And run through it ten times. That's all you have to do to pop this trophy. If you rush through it you can have the trophy in 30 minutes or less. However, if you take I slow, you can pop the other trophy during this process. Read the description for Shield Saver before deciding how you want to get these two trophies.

Shield Saver
Deflect 1,000 projectiles with your melee weapon.

To pop this trophy, you only need to have a melee weapon equipped and held in the block position to block enemy weapons fire. Once you block 1000 rounds, the trophy will pop. There is no counter in the game to let you track your progress, you just have to keep doing it until it pops.

You can get his during normal gameplay. If you use your melee weapon for blocking weapons fire anyway, it will eventually pop, however most players prefer to swing their melee weapon or fire their guns over and letting their shields take the enemy fire as opposed to bothering with blocking bullets with their melee weapon.

I found that the fastest way to get this one out of the way is in conjunction with The Sword Alone trophy. As you are doing the 10 missions for that trophy, don't kill your enemies as fast as possible. Instead, any time you are taking enemy fire hold you melee weapon in the block position. Then, while maintaining that stance, walk towards the enemy until you are in range to kill him/them. Then kill them and move on. If you do this you should have your trophy pop before you finish the 10 missions. If you are on the 10th mission and you still haven't popped the trophy then look for a group of enemies and just stand there blocking their shots until it does pop. Your bullet deflection count goes up a lot faster when facing a group as opposed to single enemies.

You don't want to be in a group because they might kill the enemies before you can get your trophy from them. You don't want your sentinel equipped for the same reason.

Doing it this way will likely take over an hour, but you'll pop both trophies instead of taking them individually. Going for this one during normal game play can take a lot longer, weeks even if the groups you go with kill enemies before they can even shoot at you.
