Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Platinum: The Great London Trophy Hunt

Collecting PlayStation trophies is one of my favourite video game hobbies. I enjoy recording my trophy journeys in the form of scrapbook articles on Strength in Sarcasm because why not! Here’s the details on my Assassin’s Creed Syndicate platinum quest.

SPOILER WARNING in case I need to say it. I’ll be talking about all the game’s trophies, which includes plot ruining details if you haven’t played the game yet.

Trophy 1: A Spanner in the Works

Official Description: “Complete Memory Sequence 1.”
Type: Bronze
Earned on: August 8th, 2020
Overall Earned: #1360

Assassin’s Creed is great to me again! After Assassin’s Creed Unity left a meh impression on me I took a several year break from the series. I jumped back in with a platinum trophy hunt in Syndicate during the Summer 0f ’20.

I was hooked on the story and fell in love with the two protagonists within mere minutes of starting the game. Evie and Jacob Frye are charming, hilarious and a wonderful bro/sis duo. I’m an only child so I have to admit I’m a huge sucker for any plot with siblings.

This trophy is earned for simply completing the starting missions. These were a great intro to combat and stealth with Jacob and Evie. Jacob is the brash brawler and Evie is the stoic stealth goddess. You have the option to swap between the pair most of the time, but some missions require a specific sibling.

Evie is by far my favourite choice so most of the game will be completed as her. I love her traditionalist assassin character (throwing knives FTW), but that doesn’t mean I hate Jacob, by any means. His biggest flaw is he isn’t Evie.

Trophy 2: A Simple Plan

Official Description: “Complete Memory Sequence 2.”
Type: Bronze
Earned on: August 8th, 2020
Overall Earned: #1361

It’s just not Assassin’s Creed without a complicated plot happening in the present day! The present day is shown in cutscenes instead of weird minigames like Unity. That’s a change I’m totally okay with!

Trophy 3: Blade in the Crowd

Official Description: “Assassinate fifty enemies.”
Type: Bronze
Earned on: August 8th, 2020
Overall Earned: #1362

This one was earned early on in my quest. Not surprising that assassinations happen a lot in a game called Assassin’s Creed I suppose.

Trophy 4: Queensbury Rules

Official Description: “Reach combo level 40.”
Type: Bronze
Earned on: August 8th, 2020
Overall Earned: #1363

Yikes. I know this looks bad, but I swear I was just innocently murdering rival gang members when a copper jumped into the fight. I had to kill him in self-defense and I happened to get a x40 combo while doing so.

Trophy 5: Unqualified Success

Official Description: “Complete three Templar Hunts and their challenges.”
Type: Bronze
Earned on: August 8th, 2020
Overall Earned: #1364

Hunting pesky lesser Templars is one of the side missions in Syndicate. For this trophy, not only do you have to complete three Templar Hunts, you also have to fulfil their optional objectives. With this out of the way it was back to ignoring everything and charging directly at my target!
