Stage 1 – Complete the game

Welcome to Pistol Whip, a PSVR2 game where you’ll need to beat opponents to the rhythm of the music. Take out your favorite pistol, customize it along with some modifiers and you are on your way!

A few trophies come with the following description: “Classic” style only.
This means you can only use a single gun (no Dual-Wield) and you are also not allowed to use any modifiers.

You’re breathtaking!
Unlock all other trophies

Earn an S rank or higher in any scene

An S-Rank is earned by a lot of factors, but the following ones are the most important:
– Accuracy
– Rhythm
– Amount of enemies killed
– Don’t get hit

As you kill enemies you can score points by doing so to the beat (Rhythm). The game has an autoaim of some sorts, but it is also important to aim at the bodymass of your opponents, as explained in the tutorial.

The track “Another Day” in the alternative mode called “Scroungin’ for roses” should provide you with enough opportunity to earn an S-rank. The enemies don’t shoot back, allowing you to focus on aiming and the beat. Do note that you need to pistol whip (melee) enemies in order to reload!

You are free to earn an S-rank on any map of your picking! Refer to the video below if you are having trouble.

Finish any scene on Hard while using “Proper Legacy” (Pistol Deadeye) style

Welcome to bullet hell where you will miss about everything you shoot. During this run it’s important that you focus on dodging rather than eliminating enemies.

Dodging can be done by moving your head in a square shape; from left to right to bottom right to bottom left.
No need to move like a maniac in your room. The track called “2089 The Way Home” is a great pick because of its many pistol whip opportunities, allowing you to restore armor in case you get hit.

Earn an accuracy rating of 90% or higher in any scene (“Classic” style only)

Hitting all bullets you shoot doesn’t mean you will get an 100% accuracy. The accuracy in based upon landing the shots closely to the body mass of the enemies. A well aimed shot provides you with the accuracy-sign as shown during the tutorial. Below is shown a run on the track called “Akuma” with an accuracy of 93.2%.

Kill all enemies in a scene without missing a shot (“Classic” style only)

Missing a shot is quite hard, since the game has auto-aim. It’s more about making sure you hit all enemies in a single level. Below is a video of the track called “Fist Fight” and where to find all enemies.
