Story-Related

Bronze Trophy Out The Window Bronze Trophy
Get 6 Kills While Diving Through The VIP Window [FREE AIM]
Location: Chapter 2 - Checkpoint 2
Once you gain control of Max for the first time in chapter 2, you will automatically jump through a window and have to kill all of the enemies while in the air (there are a total of 6 enemies).
You need to have free aim enabled! Once you completed a chapter you can replay every checkpoint by going to chapter select in the main menu. There you can also switch your settings to free aim.
If you have trouble you might want to increase your aiming speed and aiming acceleration (pause menu - settings - controls). Restart the last checkpoint if you fail.

Bronze Trophy The One Eyed Man Is King Bronze Trophy
Cover Passos With Perfect Aim
Location: Chapter 3 - Checkpoint 12
Towards the end of the third chapter you will have to cover your teammate Passos with a sniper rifle. To get the trophy / achievement you must make every bullet count. You may not miss a single shot - every bullet has to kill an enemy! Always activate your bullet time when aiming. It slows down time and makes it easier to hit the target. If you miss a shot then pause the game and click "Exit". Restart the checkpoint in the chapter select menu (only available if you completed the chapter before).

Bronze Trophy That Old Familiar Feeling Bronze Trophy
Clear The Hallway Of Lasers
Location: Chapter 4 - Checkpoint 8
During Chapter 4 you will have to make your way through a hallway where lots of enemies with green laser sights are aiming at you. You need to take all those enemies out in order to unlock the trophy / achievement. Try to stay in cover, activate bullet time and kill the enemies with headshots. After completing this chapter for the first time you can replay it in the chapter select menu, which is found in the main menu.

Bronze Trophy Something Wicked This Way Comes Bronze Trophy
Get 7 Kills While Jumping From The Rickety Boat [FREE AIM]
Location: Chapter 5 - Checkpoint 6
During chapter 5 you will have to jump down a rusty old boat. Watch out for an explosive, brown colored barrel on some set of stairs at the back of the room. Once you have found the barrel aim close to it, but miss a shot to alert the enemies. Wait a second until you hear a sound that indicates you have been spotted and shoot the barrel before the jump sequence begins. If you shoot the barrel too early it will explode before you are in the air (which wouldn't count towards the trophy / achievement). This requires some good timing and might take a couple of tries. 3 enemies will get killed by the explosion. The remaining 4 need to be taken out with gunfire. Equip the Micro 9mm before you enter the garage with the boat. That should make it a little easier to kill the enemies quickly.
You need to have free aim enabled! Once you completed a chapter you can replay every checkpoint by going to chapter select in the main menu. There you can also switch your settings to free aim.
If you have trouble you might want to increase your aiming speed and aiming acceleration (pause menu - settings - controls). Restart the last checkpoint if you fail.

Bronze Trophy Amidst The Wreckage Bronze Trophy
Destroy All The Models In The Boardroom
Location: Chapter 6 - Checkpoint 3
After fighting your first group of enemies in chapter 6 you will come to a room with architectural models. There are a total of 5 in this room. First of all, kill the group of enemies that rushes into the room and watch the short cutscene with the IT guy. Once all enemies are dead you shoot the models until the trophy / achievement pops.

Bronze Trophy So Much For Being Subtle Bronze Trophy
Get 9 Kills While Being Pulled By A Chain [FREE AIM]
Location: Chapter 7 - Checkpoint 9
In chapter 7 you will get pulled up by a metal chain (a forced event, you cannot miss it). Once the slow motion sequence starts you need to take out all of the enemies on your way up. There are a total of 9 enemies and each single one has to be killed - 4 on the ground level, 2 on the second level and 3 on the upper level.
You need to have free aim enabled! Once you completed a chapter you can replay every checkpoint by going to chapter select in the main menu. There you can also switch your settings to free aim.
If you have trouble you might want to increase your aiming speed and aiming acceleration (pause menu - settings - controls). Restart the last checkpoint if you fail.

Bronze Trophy The Only Choice Given Bronze Trophy
Get 8 Kills While Dangling From A Chain [FREE AIM]
Location: Chapter 10 - Checkpoint 5
In chapter 10 you will dangle from a chain during a slow motion sequence (a forced event, cannot be missed). There are a total of 8 enemies in front of you and all of them need to be killed. You have infinite ammo during this short slow motion sequence.
You need to have free aim enabled! Once you completed a chapter you can replay every checkpoint by going to chapter select in the main menu. There you can also switch your settings to free aim.
If you have trouble you might want to increase your aiming speed and aiming acceleration (pause menu - settings - controls). Restart the last checkpoint if you fail.

Bronze Trophy Trouble Had Come To Me Bronze Trophy
Clear Everyone On The Bus Ride
Location: Chapter 10 - Checkpoint 11
During the bus ride you will have to kill every single enemy. You should do this on the easiest difficulty because your bullet time lasts longer there. Simply shoot everything that moves. Just watch out for the rocket launcher guy at the end of the tunnel. After he is dead, a rocket should explode and kill most (or in the best case all) of the enemies around him. If any enemies survive the explosion then turn on your bullet time and take them out quickly. You can also switch from free aim to hard lock in the chapter select menu. If you have trouble then try this option.
Increasing the aiming speed and aiming acceleration also helps a lot (pause menu - settings - controls). Restart the last checkpoint if you miss a target.

Bronze Trophy Along For The Ride Bronze Trophy
Trigger A Bullet Cam On The Zipline [FREE AIM]
Location: Chapter 11 - Checkpoint 11
In chapter 11 you will slide down a zipline (a forced event, cannot be missed). Simply kill all of the enemies during the slow motion sequence. Once you shoot the last one it will automatically trigger a bullet cam. There are a total of 5 enemies and you have unlimited ammo.
You need to have free aim enabled! Once you completed a chapter you can replay every checkpoint by going to chapter select in the main menu. There you can also switch your settings to free aim.
If you have trouble you might want to increase your aiming speed and aiming acceleration (pause menu - settings - controls). Restart the last checkpoint if you fail.

Bronze Trophy Sometimes You Get Lucky Bronze Trophy
Get A Headshot During The Rooftop Tremors
Location: Chapter 12 - Checkpoint 11
At the very end of chapter 12 you will be on a rooftop. Every couple seconds the screen gets shaky which makes it a lot harder to aim on enemies. Take out the first group of enemies and pick up one of their shotguns. Shotguns make it a lot easier to hit a nearby enemy in the head! Once a tremor starts (when everything begins to shake) the enemies will fall to the ground. Activate bullet time and aim for the head. The closer you are to the enemy, the easier it gets. It's highly recommended to do this on easy difficulty. You will receive less damage and your bullet time lasts longer. Reload the last checkpoint if you didn't get a headshot.

Bronze Trophy It Was Chaos And Luck Bronze Trophy
Get 6 Kills While Riding The Push Cart [FREE AIM]
Location: Chapter 13 - Checkpoint 14
During chapter 13 you will slide down a hallway on a push cart (cannot be missed). Once on the push cart, you are in bullet time mode and have infinite ammo. Just keep shooting with your automatic 9mm and kill all 6 enemies.
You need to have free aim enabled! Once you completed a chapter you can replay every checkpoint by going to chapter select in the main menu. There you can also switch your settings to free aim.
If you have trouble you might want to increase your aiming speed and aiming acceleration (pause menu - settings - controls). Restart the last checkpoint if you fail.

Bronze Trophy You Push A Man Too Far Bronze Trophy
Don't Shoot The Dis-Armed Man
Location: Chapter 14 - Checkpoint 12
This is one out of the two secret trophies / achievements in the game. Towards the end of chapter 14 you will be given the chance to execute a wounded enemy during a cutscene. Do not press any buttons and wait until the cutscene continues.
Don't worry if you shot this guy, you can still come back later by replaying the checkpoint in chapter select.

Bronze Trophy The Road-Kill Behind Me Bronze Trophy
Total Everything On The Runway
Location: Chapter 14 - Checkpoint 12
At the end of chapter 14 you will have to chase and destroy some enemy vehicles on the runway of the airport. For the trophy / achievement all of the vehicles need to be destroyed. This includes the driving humvees, the parked police cars and the flying helicopter. All of the foot soldiers can be ignored.
Restart the last checkpoint if you fail.

 

Miscellaneous

Bronze Trophy It's Fear That Gives Men Wings Bronze Trophy
10 Bullet Time® Kills In A Row
Location: Chapter 5 - Checkpoint 14
A great opportunity to get this is during the boat ride at the end of chapter 5. Shortly after shooting a grenade during a slow motion sequence (cannot be missed), you will come to a platform where lots of enemies are attacking you. Leave some enemies alive before you reach this point. Otherwise you won't have 10 targets to kill. Activate bullet time as soon as the enemies get on the platform. You have to shoot 10 enemies during one single bullet time!
You might want to set the difficulty down to easy. Your boat could explode otherwise. You can also activate the hard lock targeting to aim on enemies quicker.
Restart the last checkpoint if you fail (or go back to chapter select and replay the sequence there).

Bronze Trophy Colder Than The Devil's Heart Bronze Trophy
Kill 30 Enemies In 2 Minutes
Location: Chapter 5 - Checkpoint 14
This can easily be done during the boat ride at the end of chapter 5. Load up checkpoint 14 in the chapter select menu, set the difficulty down to easy and enable hard lock. Simply shoot all of the enemies. If you shot everyone then you will need to destroy two more trucks after the next checkpoint.
