Use the Precision ability to rack up three head shots in rapid succession
This power is granted automatically after retrieving a few blast cores. An easy way to pull this off is to find three enemies standing together on a roof who don’t see you (flood town is a good place) and take that opportunity to carefully line up your first shot. The rest is up to you.
Take down a street performer who is imitating a statue
Above: Get a real job ya bum
This is an evil karma opportunity, even if they these guys fully deserve it. When you see a red music note on your mini-map, that means a street performer is nearby. Some play music, some imitate statues. You’re after the latter, obviously.
I’m as Shocked as You Are
Defeat an enemy or civilian by stepping in water
Above: Ooh ooh cold!
Cole doesn’t like getting wet, as you’ll surely find out by dying whenever you accidentally fall into some deep water. The shallow stuff, however, is a different story. Areas such as flood town and the swamp have a lot of knee-high water areas for you to nab this trophy in.
Don’t Fence Me In
Climb a chain link fence and rejoice
There are a lot of chain link fences around New Marais. Definitely not a difficult trophy to earn, in fact, you’ll probably get it by accident.
Ascend 50 Vertical Launch Poles
These are active all over the place, at least in the powered up areas of the city. They glow yellow and have a “Danger - High Voltage” sticker on them. Until you get the lightning tether or ice launch power, these are the best way to scale buildings quickly.
Use your Ionic Powers 30 times
You can activate the ionic powers by pressing down on the d-pad. Since they are extremely powerful and extremely awesome, you should have no trouble using them at least 30 times. The only issue you may have is simply not having the energy for it. If you need some ionic charges, take out any nearby henchmen and one will eventually drop the purple energy ball you need.
Unlock and purchase a power of each type by performing stunts
You only need to unlock and purchase a single stunt-locked power in each category (the categories being R1, triangle, square, etc.) to nab this trophy. The stunts required to unlock each power are listed in the powers menu.
Create a new mission using the UGC level editor
Above: Anyone else having traumatic Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater flashbacks?
The new User-Generated Content can be quite fun if you’re willing to commit the time and energy. If not, just choose to create a level based on the first template (target practice), immediately activate it, then play it. In total, maybe 60 seconds of effort will earn you this bronze trophy.
Play 10 user-generated missions
UGC missions are new to InFamous 2, and are created by either you, the community, or Sucker Punch. They appear as green exclams on your map, and vary wildly in terms of entertainment value. You can alter the filters in the pause menu to weed out some of the trash.
Play 25 user-generated missions
Easy enough, just a bit time consuming. Create your own simplified missions to speed up the process.
Play five user-generated missions under the Newest filter
You can change the UGC filters in the pause menu. Switch the filter to newest, then seek out the green exclams on your map.
