Destroy a T-800 Flamethrower by shooting it’s fuel tank

You can get this one done fairly easily in mission 5, make your way past the drones, spider drones and silverfish enemies to face off against a few Terminators, you’ll see one on its own off in the left building have a look about.
Aim your plasma rifle at the large gas canister on its back, fire off a few rounds making sure you hit the canister, which will destroy the T-800 and unlock your Trophy / Achievement

GS - 5

Successfully hack a Turret

You can unlock this in the 3rd mission, you’ll naturally be told as you progress through the mission where the hacking device is and then prompted to hack the turret when close to it, this is completely optional, make sure you collect the hacking device from the basement of the building after you face your first silverfish, then when you proceed down into the underground car park, be sure to hack the turret
To hack the turret, those of you that remember the classic video game, Frogger will have an easy time of it here, simply jump your white dot through the gaps riding the stream up and down as needed to avoid the solid white bars, once successful, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Upgrade your weapon

You can upgrade your weapons once you get to the Resistance Shelter and have spoken to Alvin.
Easy enough to do, line up the bars/blocks so they match each other, completing the circuit. Once successful your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Turn Up the Radio

Use Ryan’s boombox to annoy Alvin

First up, you need to accept the quest from Ryan in the Resistance Shelter called Radio For Ryan.
Go into your menu, select this quest, go to the area marked on the map where you’ll find a building with 2 T-800 units inside. Deal with them then grab the Boombox from the table.
Complete the rest of the mission as normal where you’ll be back in the Resistance Shelter. Speak to Alvin then head over to Ryan’s room.
Interact with the Boombox twice to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

You’ll be able to get this just after completing the 2nd mission, make sure you explore everywhere throughout this level to pick every lock, doors, toolboxes and weapon crates all count towards the 10 locks, if you need more lockpicks, get 2 metal scrap and go to a crafting table

Open the unlockable door in Pasadena

Reload your save to chapter 11, head down the street you start on, head to the left when you get to the red lasers. You’re looking for the blue door next to the armoured spider enemy.
Make sure you have level 3 lockpicking skill in order to unlock this door. The door is a hard grade door which is damn near impossible to get unlocked.
To make this incredibly simple, go to the door and when you’re trying to pick the lock, press TRIANGLE/Y to “force” the lock.
There is a 30% chance this will succeed. If you run out of lockpicks before you’re successful simply reload chapter 11 again and try again. As soon as you successfully open the pointless door, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Get an enemy killed by a hacked Turret

See Helping Hand for information on how to hack a turret
Once you’ve hacked that turret, in the very next area you’ll be faced with 2 turrets, sneak up to the first one on the right, wait for it to look hard left then get behind it for the hack, once the turret is yours, sit back and wait for your turret to kill the enemy turret at which point your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Efficient Killer

Kill a Terminator using the Termination Knife

You can get a Termination Knife just before you go off to start mission 5, on a crate over to the right side of the outside courtyard.
Equip the Termination Knife into any of your 4 weapon slots by going into your inventory, sneak up behind any Terminator and hold R2/RT to perform an instant kill.
If you are detected by the Terminator, run away or kill it and look for another one. As soon as you get a stealth kill with the Termination Knife your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Destroy a Skynet Outpost

Another trophy/achievement you can unlock in mission 5, as you’re making your way to your 2nd objective just next to where the T-47 and T-825 units are patrolling will be a large building, go down to the basement of this building.
In the top right corner will be a generator, destroy this generator to take out the outpost which will unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Still Counts as One

Destroy the T-47 that occupies Pasadena

You’ll find the T-47 as you make your way through mission 5, its on the way to your 3rd mission objective and as it’s as big as a building you’ll be hard-pressed to miss it. Fortunately, there is a very easy way of taking it down, opposite the ambulances where the T-47 is roaming around there will be a small door.
You can sit in this doorway and shoot its face until it gets staggered then shoot the glowing orange critical spot on its left shoulder to inflict some serious damage. Thrown explosives work very well also. Once its down your Trophy / Achievement will unlock
