If you think you have mastered your aiming and slaying skills in Killzone Shadow Fall, or are simply hunting for trophies because there’s nothing better in life to do, then you should definitely try what I like to call the “three O’s”.
These are trophies that will test your killing and aiming skills, demanding challenging tasks that only those with confidence in their aim and judgment can accomplish.
The trophies are Outsmarted, Outgunned, and Outmaneuvered. Let’s take a look at each one, and how to accomplish them.

Killzone Shadow Fall Outsmarted
In singleplayer, get a quadruple kill with a single Frag Grenade
If this was maybe Killzone 2 or 3, then the Outsmarted trophy would be easier to acquire. However, in Killzone Shadow Fall, there aren’t many opportunities to actually get 4 simultaneous kills with a single frag grenade.
However, there is one opportunity that you might want to look into. Towards the end of The Destroyer chapter, you’ll be fighting tons of enemies. When you reach the checkpoint after clearing a group of enemies, enemies will come out of two doors, one on the left, and another on the right.
What you should do is wait just outside the door, and at this time send in OWL to stun the enemies. One of the enemies actually has a shield, so this will be disabled immediately once OWL stuns him.
Once they are immobilized, toss a frag grenade, and get to cover. Wait for the explosion, and check if you managed to score the trophy. If not, just restart the checkpoint, and attempt again.
Killzone Shadow Fall Outgunned
In singleplayer, kill 6 Helghast with headshots within a single adrenaline rush
In order for you to be able to do an adrenaline rush, you will need to make sure you have adrenaline packs on you. You can tell if you have sufficient amount by looking at the icon on the bottom left corner of the screen – it will light up whenever you have adequate adrenaline.
The best place to perform such a feat is actually the same as the one mentioned in Outsmarted. There will also be two adrenaline packs on the table between the two doors, in case you don’t have any. It seems like this place was tailor-made for these two achievements.
Activate your adrenaline rush (D-pad left) and aim for the head. Hopefully, you’ve played enough first-person shooters that this wouldn’t be an issue for you. If you fail, just restart the checkpoint, and make another attempt.
Killzone Shadow Fall Outmaneuvered
In singleplayer, kill 5 Helghast with gunfire while ziplining
Swipe right on the touch pad of your PS4 controller to access the OWL menu, and you’ll be able to zipline from there, provided you’re on higher ground. You will need to aim at a lower ground, and then press L1 to send OWL to create a path for you to zipline on.
When you’re ziplining, you will need kill 5 enemies with hipfire. It’s not easy to do, especially if your zipline is too steep (which will make you move very fast). The best place to zipline is in chapter 2, in the section “You Have the Intel?”
You will get to a crashed ship with the smoke, and will have a good overlook of the enemies below. Zipline from there, and take out the two enemies. There are other places in this section that you can perform this from as well. Just use the towers and cliff sides.
It’s important to note that this trophy requirement isn’t restricted to any chapter at all. However, the above mentioned place is probably the easiest to do so in the game.
