Destroyed 150 of the golden Amrita shards found in the gold mine in “Eternal Rivals”

Used an attack to knock Yoshitsune off his perch in “Eternal Rivals”

Eternal Rivals is the 2nd story mission in The Tengu’s Disciple DLC, to access this mission, you need to have first completed A Song to Calm the Storm, then in the top right corner of the map, click Head East. This will then take you to a new portion of the map where you can then play the Eternal Rivals mission
Ensure you have a Hand Cannon and as much ammunition as you can carry for it, as that’s essential to unlock this particular trophy. Also, ensure you do not fire the Hand Cannon all the way through the mission to ensure you have the maximum amount of ammunition
Yoshitsune, is the boss in this level, and you’re going to need to be quick to unlock this trophy, every so often, Yoshitsune will summon the dark realm, and jump up onto one of the railings  either side of the bridge you’re fighting on
It’s at this moment, you need to fire off a shot from your Hand Cannon, however, this is a lot easier said than done as he’s incredibly fast and really doesn’t stay still for long.
If you haven’t managed this before you defeat Yoshitsune, simply let him kill you as there is a shrine directly outside the boss gate. It’s better to just re run the fight rather than the entire level, eventually, you will get lucky/skillful and get a shot off on Yoshitsune, where he will then fall off the railing onto the bridge. At this point, your Trophy will unlock
