Defeating the final Boss with a single hit on any difficulty
To kill Viktor Marchenko using the non-lethal method in stealth (no alarms) on any difficulty, you need an EMP grenade or EMP mine. Mines work better because he cannot run away from them. After he is hit by the EMP, you can cloak yourself and sneak up to him to perform a melee takedown. He goes down in a single hit. He always walks the same path — just place the mine and hide behind cover. There is an EMP mine and some crafting parts on the left side upper floor. You can craft a mine template and then combine it with the EMP mine. If you cannot craft a mine, use the EMP grenade. Completing the game without killing and triggering alarms unlocks the “Foxiest Of The Hounds” and “Pacifist” trophies. Completing it on hardest difficulty unlocks the “I Never Asked For This” trophy.

All eBook locations
Search the indicated locations to find all 75 eBooks and get the “Tablet Collector” trophy. This guide shows them in chronological story order. All of them are missable. There is no mission select and you cannot free roam at the end of the game. It is not possible to return to previous mission areas. eBooks do not carry over into New Game+. If you miss one, you must reload a previous save to get it. When you die, your unsaved collectible progress gets lost and you must collect them again. You can view how many eBooks you have found under the “Database” menu. Each eBook has its own unique name. It is highly recommended you collect them in the exact order shown in the video and go from one collectible directly to the next without starting unnecessary quests. Sometimes certain augmentations are needed to reach an eBook. Buy the following augs directly after Mission 3 (in order): Hacking Capture Level 5, Icarus Dash (both upgrades), Cybernetic Arm Prosthesis (Optimized Musculature, Punch Through Wall), Cybernetic Leg Prosthesis. You also must make certain story choices. Some collectibles are more missable than others in the sense that they are affected by story choices, dialogue choices, and side quests. The following is a list of important story choices and side missions — if you fail a single one of them you will not be able to collect some eBooks (side missions not listed here can be skipped):

Side Mission 2 – “Cult Of Personality”: Must play this mission during first or second visit to Prague.
Main Mission 7: Win the debate with Talos Rucker.
Main Mission 10: After Mission 10, you must decide whether to play a bank heist or help Allison. You have to play the bank heist (Mission 12) and skip helping Allison (skip Mission 11 completely). This is the only way to get the eBook in the bank vault. Allison’s church complex will be open after completing the bank heist in Mission 12.
Side Mission 10 – “The Harvester”: Must exonerate both suspects (Gunn and Radko) and complete all optional objectives. Complete this before main Mission 13.
Side Mission 11 – “The Last Harvest”: Triggers during main Mission 14 — two eBooks only appear while this mission is active.

Easy “Adept Of The Metaverse” trophy
Successfully complete all three tutorials in Mission 1: Black Market Buy to get the “Adept Of The Metaverse” trophy. At certain points the game will pause and give you a tutorial pop-up. You can either accept or decline them. They can be found at the following locations:

1. After hacking the first door panel.
2. After the first elevator ride.
3. In the room after the second tutorial. Depending on what path you take, you will get a different tutorial — either go through the vent on the right or go through the door on the left. You only need complete one of the two.
Easy “A Heated Combination” trophy
At the very first keypad you find (which is story related and unmissable) in Mission 1: Black Market Buy, enter “0451” as the code to open the door and get the “A Heated Combination” trophy.

Easy “Singh No Swan Song” trophy
At the end of Mission 1: Black Market Buy, you get the “Stop The Chopper From Escaping” and “Protect Singh” objectives. You will go down an elevator and encounter a large number of enemies. Ignore all the enemies and quickly run straight to the front left side of the chopper to remove the battery from it and ground it. Try to reach the chopper before the sand storm begins. It is recommended to not shoot your weapon at all in this section and just run. If you take too long, Singh will get killed by the enemies and you must reload the latest save.

Easy “Time Traveler” trophy
Instead of following the normal story path in Mission 2: Morning Comes Too Soon, do the “Side Mission 4: The Calibrator” objective before this side mission even begins. At the start of Mission 2, use the subway to travel to the north-eastern point of Prague. Then, go to the Russian Underground Casino. In the office on the top floor is a safe. Get the calibrator from the safe (hack the keypad near the safe to open it). Next, go back the way you came and follow the waypoints to Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again. Successfully complete Mission 3. At the end when Koller asks you for the calibrator, give it to him to get the “Time Traveler” trophy. After main Mission 11, you can return to Koller and he will install the calibrator and you will get the “Fresh Out Of The Package” trophy.

Easy “Express Elevator To Hell, Going Down ” trophy
You can do this in the open world anytime after Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again (where you fix your augmentations). For example, it can be done at a gangster hideout near Adam’s apartment. Places with enemies are marked in red on the map. First, fully upgrade the “Icarus Landing” and “Typhoon” augmentations. This costs four Praxis Kits (you will get more than enough after Mission 3). Create a manual saved game before doing this so you can retry if anything goes wrong — and reload it later to get your Praxis Kits back. Go up a tall building and drop down onto an enemy. Hold Circle while you drop down to activate the Icarus Strike. Then, follow up with the Typhoon to defeat another enemy. You are allowed to walk around after the Icarus Strike to get near another enemy. The Typhoon only hits enemies in close range. Note: You must attack enemies for it to count, as civilians and policemen do not work. Enemies appear as red in Smart Vision.

Easy “Ground Mail Was A Better Option” trophy
You can do this in the open world anytime after Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again (where you fix your augmentations). There is a flying drone by the street of Adam’s apartment. Fully upgrade the “Remote Hacking” augmentation. Then, press Square near a drone. When you hack it, a firewall will appear. There are some points marked in the firewall (usually 2-3 points). You must hit these points with perfect timing. When you do it correctly, the point will disappear. When you do it wrong, you will see a red “X” on the right side, in which case you must back out and try again. Hack the drone without getting a red “X” in the sidebar to disable it for a short time and get the “Ground Mail Was A Better Option” trophy.

Easy “****! Taser Fist!” trophy
You can do this anytime after Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again (where you fix your augmentations). A good place to do it is at the Russian Underground Casino. You go there during “Side Mission 4: The Calibrator”. Either do it during this side mission or return later after completing it (enemies will still be there). You must fully upgrade the “Tesla” augmentation. There are many enemies close together in the casino. Get close to them and hold the assigned button to target four at the same time. Make sure there are no objects in the way. Hit four at once to get the “****! Taser Fist!” trophy. The trophy may not unlock until the enemies enter combat and started shooting. If you experience any issues, shoot up the place, wait for enemies to attack, then use Tesla during combat. Note: You must attack enemies for it to count, as civilians and policemen do not work. Enemies appear as red in Smart Vision. Additionally, create a backup save before buying the augmentation and going in the casino so you can farm all other combat trophies in the same spot. Reloading the save will also reset the augmentation and give you your Praxis Kits back. Thus, you can quickly upgrade another augmentation for a different combat trophy.

Easy “Ramming Speed!!” trophy
You can do this anytime after Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again (where you fix your augmentations). A good place to do it is at the Russian Underground Casino. You go there during “Side Mission 4: The Calibrator”. Either do it during this side mission or return later after completing it (enemies will still be there). You must fully upgrade the “Icarus Dash” augmentation. There is a tunnel on the right side of the casino. Shoot around to lure the enemies there, then charge up an Icarus Dash (by holding the button you assigned it to) and dash into an enemy that is far away to get the “Ramming Speed!!” trophy. You must perform a very long dash; you will not get it if done at close range. Note: You must attack enemies for it to count, as civilians and policemen do not work. Enemies appear as red in Smart Vision. Additionally, create a backup save before buying the augmentation and going in the casino so you can farm all other combat trophies in the same spot. Reloading the save will also reset the augmentation and give you your Praxis Kits back. Thus, you can quickly upgrade another augmentation for a different combat trophy.

Easy “Slow & Sharp” trophy
You can do this anytime after Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again (where you fix your augmentations). A good place to do it is at the Russian Underground Casino. You go there during “Side Mission 4: The Calibrator”. Either do it during this side mission or return later after completing it (enemies will still be there). You must fully upgrade the “Focus Enhancement” and “Nanoblade” augmentations. There are many enemies close together in the casino. Enable Focus Enhancement (slows down time), then immediately aim your nanoblade and shoot it into an enemy (legs or upper body). Hitting an enemy directly will make the nanoblade explode on impact. Do not shoot on the ground or at another object — hit the enemy directly to get the “Slow & Sharp” trophy. If you experience any issues, make sure the enemies are on alert and attacking you. Note: You must attack enemies for it to count, as civilians and policemen do not work. Enemies appear as red in Smart Vision. Additionally, create a backup save before buying the augmentation and going in the casino so you can farm all other combat trophies in the same spot. Reloading the save will also reset the augmentation and give you your Praxis Kits back. Thus, you can quickly upgrade another augmentation for a different combat trophy.

Easy “The Invincible Body, Fighting An Iron Devil” trophy
You can do this anytime after Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again (where you fix your augmentations). A good place to do it is at the Russian Underground Casino. You go there during “Side Mission 4: The Calibrator”. Either do it during this side mission or return later after completing it (enemies will still be there). You must buy the “Titan” augmentation. It is recommended to fully upgrade it to make it easier. Hide behind cover and wait for enemies to throw a grenade (grenades are marked with a triangle around them). Then, activate the Titan Armor and run into the grenade to absord the damage and get “The Invincible Body, Fighting An Iron Devil ” trophy. You may have to shoot around to make the enemies attack you. Note: You must attack enemies for it to count, as civilians and policemen do not work. Enemies appear as red in Smart Vision. Additionally, create a backup save before buying the augmentation and going in the casino so you can farm all other combat trophies in the same spot. Reloading the save will also reset the augmentation and give you your Praxis Kits back. Thus, you can quickly upgrade another augmentation for a different combat trophy.

Easy “This Is Great For Spring Cleaning” trophy
You can do this anytime after Mission 3: Getting In Top Shape Again (where you fix your augmentations). A good place to do it is at the Russian Underground Casino. You go there during “Side Mission 4: The Calibrator”. Either do it during this side mission or return later after completing it (enemies will still be there). You must fully upgrade the “P.E.P.S” augmentation. Attack enemies with one precision shot (hold button) and one knockback shot (tap button) to get the “This Is Great For Spring Cleaning” trophy. It only counts when you hit an enemy during combat. Note: You must attack enemies for it to count, as civilians and policemen do not work. Enemies appear as red in Smart Vision. Additionally, create a backup save before buying the augmentation and going in the casino so you can farm all other combat trophies in the same spot. Reloading the save will also reset the augmentation and give you your Praxis Kits back. Thus, you can quickly upgrade another augmentation for a different combat trophy.

Easy “The Golden Rookery” trophy
The gold penguin can be found in the starting area of Mission 7: The Rucker Extraction. After a police officer stops you, go up the ladder on the left, then the ladder on the right. Inside a building on the right side (after going up both ladders) is the penguin. It is a physical object that you must collect and carry with you — it does not go in your inventory. You have to deliver it to the area with the first enemies of this mission, which is much later in the mission, near the end, but before talking to Rucker. After getting the penguin, follow the waypoints and sneak past the policemen. Get the elevator keycard from the police officer in the second market area (after police station). The elevators are a shortcut and will make this much easier. In the area with the moving platforms, hack the terminal (security level 5) to reach the elevator on the other side. Use a multi-tool if you cannot hack it (can be crafted for 120 parts or found later in the mission). When you reach the first area with enemies, there is a cutscene. After the cutscene, run straight to the end of the area and drop down one floor. Go through the door on the left. You can then punch a hole in the wall. Behind that wall is the penguin colony. You need the “Punch Through Wall” augmentation to do this. Put the penguin on the chair with the other penguins to get a free Praxis Kit and “The Golden Rookery” trophy.

Easy “Between Technology & The Divine” trophy
Near the end of Mission 7: The Rucker Extraction, after making your way through an enemy facility, you will meet Talos Rucker. You will have a lengthy unskippable conversation with him. Select the following dialogue options to get the “Between Technology & The Divine” trophy:

1. Turn Tables
2. Patronize
3. Justify
4. Turn Tables
Easy “So Many Cucumbers” trophy
After your debate with Talos Rucker in Mission 7: The Rucker Extraction, you must escape the area and reach an extraction point. You will go through a large market area/greenhouse with many enemies. There are lots of cucumbers everywhere. To get the “So Many Cucumbers” trophy, one cucumber must be shot and destroyed by an enemy. Shooting it yourself do not work. Simply get spotted and run away from the enemies. They will shoot up the place and will likely hit a cucumber as you run away from them. Alternately, stand next to a cucumber and let the enemies shoot at you.

Easy “The Net Is Vast And Infinite” trophy
During Mission 9: Checking Out The Men In Charge, you will have to use the neural subnet in the TF29 facility to visit a computer simulation (just like breach mode). You have to complete one short level without raising an alarm. There are only a few cameras and laser grids that could cause an alarm. All of this is very easy to avoid. You can use the environment to your advantage by using remote hacking. Note: Create a backup save before this section so you can retry if something goes wrong.

Easy “Ballsy” trophy
After Mission 10, you will have to decide whether to save Allison or rob a bank. Choose to help Allison. This will lead to Mission 11: Confronting The Bomb-Maker, where you enter the church of the Machinegod (the area is locked prior to this mission). In the backyard of the church are some basketballs and a basket. Throw the ball into the basket to get the “Ballsy” trophy.

Easy “Core Driller” trophy
When Mission 13: G.A.R.M. begins, you will go up a ladder and reach the drill room. You must put a biocell into the drill console. If you do not have a biocell, you can find one at the end of the hallway on the office desk (20 meters/yards from the drill console). Then, do the following:

1. Press the Left button on the drill console to move the drill.
2. During the conversation, the best option to choose is “Scold” since enemies will enter the room if you mess up.
3. Press the Up button on the drill console.
4. Press the Up button again on the drill console.
5. Press the Right button on the drill console.
6. Activate the Red button on the drill console.
The core drill will now open a new optional path for you and you will get the “Core Driller” trophy.

Easy “Laputan Machine” trophy
To do this, you must collect the kill switch (story item) before going to the Marchenko Boss fight in Mission 16: Stopping Marchenko. On your way to Marchenko, you will get a call from Vega and Mission 17 will begin. Instead of doing Mission 16, select Mission 17 in your mission list and follow the waypoints there. A door that was previously locked will now be open (alternatively, you can also take out the bald enemy near the door to get the keycard). In the room to the left of where you find Miller is a box under a table. It contains the kill switch. Once you have the kill switch, go to Marchenko (back to Mission 16). During the opening dialogue, you can use the switch to kill him instantly and get the “Laputan Machine” trophy. Note: Doing this will void the “Pacifist” trophy since it counts as a kill.

Easy “Invisible War” trophy
You need the “Cloak Takedown Support” upgrade of the Glass-Shield augmentation to do this. It allows you to melee takedown enemies while remaining cloaked yourself. After defeating Marchenko in Mission 17: Protecting The Future, you must protect the delegates. On your way there, you will reach a turret with two enemies walking around it. These enemies will cloak themselves automatically. Use your own cloak augmentation and get very close to the enemy. When he cloaks himself, very quickly and repeatedly press [Melee]. It will not display the melee prompt on cloaked enemies. You also must have enough energy left (blue bar in bottom left corner). A melee takedown requires a lot of energy. You can use a biocell to quickly restore energy. Enter this mission well prepared and make sure you fully upgrade the cloak as early as possible. Keep at least one biocell for this section.
