Defeat 10 enemies in a row with a single punch, after softening them up with gunfire.
Note: You cannot restart checkpoints or anything, this has to be in a single life. If you back out to the main menu or die etc then the counter will reset. Also, you having to be facing them when you do it, you cannot attack them from behind. You also cannot go into hand-to-hand combat, exit, then do it. You have to do is from fresh. The counter will also reset if you enter hand-to-hand combat or you do a neck snap.
This was the hardest trophy in the game for me, took me about an hour of trying before I finally managed to get it. You will want to replay chapter 9 in chapter select and play on either Easy or Very Easy. The first thing you want to do is go down the stairs and blind fire shoot one guys, concentrate on one at a time. After you have shot one you will see him stumble and you then have to go up to him and press and hopefully it will one hit kill them with a punch, sliding between there legs and knocking them over or drop kicking them. Once you have killed 3 enemies using this method kill the three guys in the next area, be careful of the big guy as he is prone to activating hand-to-hand combat if you get too close.
Once you have killed that lot Nate will say something about keep moving. A checkpoint will activate (If you muck it up here you will have to restart the entire level because the counter will reset and you won't be able to kill enough enemies). There is 5 or so enemies in here, including a big guy. Do the same as you did before and you will be fine. The trophy will unlock when there is one remaining guy left, because there is 11 of them in total. Here is a video guide by PowerPyx:
Like bradfreak, I also used chapter 2. There are 8 guys in the open area towards the middle of the chapter. Then after a cutscene and some rope-climbing there are 4 or 5 more guys.
I liked using this chapter (as opposed to 9) because it was easier to get the enemies out from behind cover (which causes a lot of accidental stealth attacks) and there is no one with a shotgun. Also, if I happened to screw up, a 'restart to last check point' put me right back in the action.
Just be careful after you successfully do the first 8; it requires some time to get back to that position if you screw up one of the next 2.
@3 Forgot to mention that only 7 of those guys can be shot and punched. You need to kill the one on the top first then the rest. Same goes after the rope climbing, you will se one guy above(Ignore him) and 3 guys below, after the 3 guys, 2 more will spawn which you can use to get this trophy. Hope this helps. Tip: Use very easy, you have to shoot them ONCE and KILL THEM WHILE THEY ARE STUNNED BY THE SHOT or it won't work.
this trophy is stupid iv now killed at least 20 people in a row in this manner and still NO trophy it must be glitched iv done it on chapter 2 chapter 8 and 9 and also 23 all recommennded and ALL FAILED!
Oki This is really taking the piss now iv done this well over 50 times now that killing 10 enimies in a row with one punch after shooting em one and its still not fucking popped WTF is wrong with this trophy!!
also the counter doesnt restart if you do a neck snap - as i did chapter 9 and got to 9 in a row and accidentally did a neck snap, but the last guy left i did it right on, and it popped. so that is wrong. as long as you shoot all 11 guys and then get 10 with a punch, the other can be the neck snap.
2 & 3 are right, ignore the crappy suggestion in the guide and go to chapter 2. It's pretty obvious that the guide author didn't think for himself on this one and just used what was in a video someone else made. Sometimes you have to stop being lazy and using the first video someone drops in your lap and look at alternate suggestions from readers, because their idea might be far easier to pull off even though it means more work for you to shoot your own video for the guide.
Just got it in chapter 2 which gave me my final trophy for the game and the platinum. I think that it doesn't count if you are behind them which gives you the kill animation of jumping on their back like a stealth kill, even if you shot them first. But Chapter 2 is definitely the easiest place to get it.
Definitely, Chapter 2 is WAY EASIER than 9th... Go for it at CHAPT 2 guys. I tried in the 9th for 30 minutes and when I had 8 fancy kills I got killed myself (in VERY EASY MODE :p )... In my second try on Chapter 2 I got the trophy :)
Chapter 2. Start by killing the two guys on top of the truck, then do the 8 guys in the next area for the trophy. @5, you can climb up and kill the guy on the ledge, just look before saying you can't!. Do on easy, not very easy as I think the 'two shots then punch' method is the best way.
