Link to the boosting thread: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/soc...ng-thread.html
Like the Trophies that where patched onto Socom: Confrontation the DLC trophies will take you just as long to obtain. For the most part you will only be able to earn the trophies by playing on Cold Front maps, however some of the objectives can be done on the original maps as well. You can buy the DLC in the Playstation Store for $14.99. Below is all the new features you get, the list is from Playstation.com
The ‘Cold Front’ expansion pack is loaded with a number of new features and content. Check out what’s included in the new download pack below:
50 mounted turret kills, 5 mounted turret kills in one game
Each new cold front map has at least 2 turrets located on them. Depending on the game mode you may be able to run to a turret a pick up a couple of kills. Getting 5 turret kills in a game is more difficult that it sounds. If you hit the enemy with the PKM turret 2 bullets will take him down. When you are on the turret however you leave yourself open to snipers. When you meet the requirements for this trophy it will unlock at the end of the game. Below is a top view of all the new maps.
BLIZZARD - 2 turrets 1 in each spawn
NIGHTSTALKER - 2 turrets located within 20m of spawns
VIGILANCE - 4 turrets
ENTRAPMENT - 4 turrets 1 by each spawn and 1 by each plant site in demolition
UPRISING - 2 turrets located in the middle facing each other
Cold Front Tour of Duty
play 25 games of arms run, play 25 games on each cold front map
Arms run is a new game mode that was added with the DLC. You will not be able to play arms run unless you are in a Cold Front medley room that is 8v8 or 16v16. You may also get this game mode in quick match but more often than not you will end up in a SC room. You will also have to play 25 games on each new map. There are 5 cold front maps you have to play on. Below is a list of the maps, if you want to see their layout see the "Mounted Destruction" trophy spoiler tags. You can check your progress towards this trophy at any time while at the main menu go to records> awards> service.
unlock one of the specialization-specific weapons, 25 kills with unlocked primary specialization weapon
First at the Main Menu you will have to go into Armory> Specializations. From there you will want to set a primary specialization and a secondary. You will earn credits to unlock attachments and new weapons by using the weapon you choose. If your primary specialization is assault rifles you will only earn credits when you get kills with assault rifles. You can check your progress towards unlocking your specialized weapon by going into armory> specializations. After you earn enough credits to unlock your specialized gun you will get a message at the end of the game. After that you will want to go into your armory and equip your commando and mercenary with it. Below is a list of what weapons correspond with each class.
500 kills with new cold front weapons, 50 kill assists with new cold front weapons, 25 kills while using a thermal scope
You can earn your kills for this trophy on regular socom maps along with cold front maps. You will also need to get 50 kill assists these also can be earned by playing regular socom maps or cold front maps. Any weapon that can have any scope mounted to it you will be able to put a thermal scope on. To put a thermal on your gun go into your armory and edit your commando and mercenaries weapons. You have to be scoped in for it to count as a thermal kill. The trophy will unlock at the end of the game. Below is a list of all the Cold Front Weapons.
earn a gold star in your primary weapon specialization, earn a silver star in your secondary weapon specialization, 50 kills with unlocked primary specialization weapon
First at the Main Menu you will have to go into Armory> Specializations. From there you will want to set a primary specialization and a secondary. You will earn credits to unlock attachments and new weapons by using the weapon you choose. If your primary specialization is assault rifles you will only earn credits when you get kills with assault rifles. You will want to set your specializations to weapons that you are use to using. After you earn enough credits you will unlock a weapon to use, equip it in the armory and get 50 kills with it. You can get the kills on regular socom maps or cold front maps it doesn't matter.
Cold Front Domination
200 wins on cold front maps, launch 100 missiles in arms run, destroy 100 missiles in arms run, 250 mounted turret kills, 25 melee kills, specialized veteran, additional firepower, cold front tour of duty
This will be the most time consuming of all the cold front trophies. 250 turret kills and 100 missile launches will take you a while to get if you are not boosting. You will want to try and stick to cold front medley rooms, you can earn all the base trophies in cold front matches so don't worry. When you play Arms run you will have to either disarm the missiles or arm them. You won't have too much trouble disarming them. The hard part is arming them. After you arm them you will have to defend the missile for 30 seconds, after that it will launch. If you kill the entire other team before the missile launches however the round will end. So if there is 1 guy left try not to kill him unless he is disarming the missile. 250 turret kills will take some time, I would suggest running to a turret and trying to get kills. Most of the time you will die but unless you boost this you're looking at over 100 games to get this. You can get the 25 melees on any map.
