Welcome to the trophy guide for Terminator: Resistance. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Play through the main missions and side quests.

All trophies will be earned in one playthrough. Play through the game story on any difficulty (EASY, MEDIUM, or HARD). Focus on completing story missions, completing a minimum of 5 side quests, collecting at least 10 notes, and the two missable trophies. The missable trophies are:

1) No Hope – Unlock the unlockable door in Pasadena the second time you visit it;
2) Turn Up the Radio – where Ryan asks you to find the boombox (radio) in Pasadena and then return to the safe house. In the safe house visit Ryan where he tells you to turn up the volume on the radio.

Then make sure to complete the requirements for all other trophies as you playthrough the game by completing the story.
