Stage 1 – Complete Luella’s campaign with S Ranks.


Warborns trophies are almost entirely story related, S Ranking those missions, and a few misc. tasks. All in all not a difficult list, but can be a difficult execution. The above timing and difficulty is reflected from playing on Normal and save exploiting, though you can play on Easy and still achieve the platinum! There is a saving grace in Warborn and that is that you can save at anytime during your turn during battle. So if you’re ever afraid of a strategy, curious of the following turn, made a mistake, not a problem as you can reload the previous turns save. Be warned though, there’s only 1 save file, so you’ll have to constantly overwrite and be sure of it. For example if you make a mid-battle save on a turn that results in your death everytime, then you’ll have to re-do the whole mission. That said, even with the save exploits it can be a real tough nut to crack. Below are the listed strategies employed that earned the Master Tactician trophy.

A note of warning though, enemies in this game do have a set preference for things like fixating on capturing over attacking you if they had the choice. But, the A.I doesn’t have a set determined route based on your turns play. You can reload the save file 10 times and each of those 10 times they’ll employ a different tactic that turn. So because of the enemies choice of variant tactics, there are times that the below strategies won’t have exact response the enemy did, but the gist of the strategy remains and you will only have to slightly alter some details.










Stage 2 – Complete Vincent’s campaign with S Ranks.










Stage 3 – Complete Aurielle’s campaign with S Ranks.










Stage 4 – Complete Izol’s campaign with S Ranks.










Stage 5 – The Finale Missions

 Perfectionist
Complete a Campaign mission without losing a single Variable Armour.

Variable Armour’s in Warborn are your mechs. This will come naturally as you aim to complete the S ranks, and far before than you’ll be likely to get it naturally. Your very first mission in fact, Luella’s Mission 00 “Ace” has Luella in it, which she is a heavily OP character to aid you through the first stage. You shan’t be losing any armours unless you play sloppy.


 Vincent Ace
Obtain S Rank for Vincent’s finale mission and every mission in his chapter.

This trophy is awarded for S Ranking the missions listed in The Finale and Chapter Complete – Vincent. As for S Ranking Strategies refer to Stage 2 and Stage 5 above for Vincent.


 Master Tactician

 Aurielle Ace

This trophy is awarded for S Ranking the missions listed in The Finale and Chapter Complete – Aurielle. As for S Ranking Strategies refer to Stage 3 and Stage 5 above for Aurielle.


 Perfect Trap
Destroy an enemy with a Prospect proximity mine.

Proximity mines are a skill of the Prospect. Unfortunately proximity mines generally aren’t strong enough to destroy an enemy variable armour alone, so you’ll likely need an injured enemy to step onto one. This trophy will likely come naturally but if it doesn’t, there is a preferred mission. Aurielles Mission 01 Guard Duty comes with 2 Prospects to start and 2 Farsides! Utilize the Farsides to deal damage, and lay mines down. Restart the mission if things aren’t going in your favor.


 Area of Effect
Hit three or more targets with a single attack.

Pretty self-explanatory, you must hit 3 or more enemies with a single attack. The tricky thing with this trick is luck, as you’ll need 3 enemies to line up in a row preferably. Luckily roads and grass allow further travel distances, so enemies will utilize them making it more likely to happen. This can even happen during the very first mission and will be the method utilized here.

During Luella’s first mission, Mission 00 “Ace” you can obtain this trophy. It’s a short mission and can be set-up to do so in 1 to 2 minutes flat, so resetting the stage if luck doesn’t agree with you isn’t too much of a hassle. Next you’ll want to make sure to use Luella herself. When 3 enemies line-up either on the left or right ride, side does not matter this method works on both. From her starting position line yourself up with them in a straight line. Luella’s first skill, Precision Rail Rifle has a distance of 5 and deals extreme damage (It will destroy all 3 enemies in a single use).

Precision Rail Rifle Multi-target

 Victorious
Win an online multiplayer quick play match.

A quick play match is a match type under the Multiplayer portion of the main menu. It must be Quick Play and not Host Game or Join Game. You’ll achieve this trophy for winning the match against your opponent.


 Overwhelming Force
Complete a campaign mission with 15 or more Variable Armours deployed.

Variable Armours are deployed through Outpost structures using CP generated from Eionite Refineries. To obtain this trophy you must complete a mission with 15 or more Variable Armours deployed, this will likely come naturally. If it does not, once you have the trophy Master Tactician come back to earn this as you’ll be able to play sloppily to complete the mission. Using Vincent’s Mission 03 Siege is a great choice, as the 2nd half won’t have enemies deploying and you can deploy as much as you’d like before destroying the enemy commander.
