Getting the Platinum trophy in Warhammer 40K Rogue Trader is not as simple as being a loyal citizen of the empire. Your character has the potential of skirting imperial doctrine and working with zenos to complete objectives. You can say that you are doing it for the sake of humanity, but you can’t say that to an Inquisitor with a straight face and hope to live out the rest of your contract.
Because of how your choices will affect the course of events within the game, you will need to do two or more playthroughs to get all event trophies. You can do the first one as a loyalist on easy mode and get the majority of trophies. And then doing another run to check off traitorous (or traitor-like) trophies.
The Knee-Deep in Chaos Silver trophy is one such trophy. In Warhammer 40K, any commander willing to yield ground to the forces of Chaos is seen as a traitorous act to Loyalists. But we may not have a choice in the matter. The brave soldiers of blessed Cadia fought to the last to keep Chaos at bay. In the end, they were wiped out. A rogue trader would cut their losses and look elsewhere. I wonder if we will make that kind of choice.
This also applies to the How Did It All End? Gold trophy. I’m sure the Inquisition will not turn a blind eye to anyone who raises an abomination. No matter how useful they are to the Imperium.
Most skill trophies you’ll be able to get after playing enough of the game. Trophies like the Pentakill Bronze trophy require you to kill 5 enemies with one attack. The best way to do this is with a flamer and perhaps with a little assistance from the Warp. The rest is only a matter of angering enough factions until you have encountered all possible enemy types.
At certain points in the story, you need to do some actions that above and beyond what’s needed to succeed in the campaign. Actions such as protecting all shuttles and keeping safe all batteries require forethought and positioning. These trophies you can save for another playthrough. But if you are willing, you can do what most X-Com players do and save scum your way to your preferred outcome. (Nobody but the Emperor would know.)
Your companions are the people who fight under your command. They have their reasons for following you and they expect their missions to be prioritized if you want to gain their loyalty. Of course, there will be friction in the workplace from time to time as opposing views clash and involved parties get into a word war. It’ll be up to you to ease tensions and remind everyone that the mission is the only thing that matters.
Just don’t leave the psyker and the Sister of Battle in the same room. The hull won’t be able to sustain the damage.
And finally, we have trophies tied to romantic interests in the game. They are the ‘A Spark‘ Bronze trophy and the ‘A Flame‘. You can always watch Owl Cat Game’s character trailer to get to know all your companions and you may even like a certain someone even before starting the game. You can also check their romantic preference from said profiles.
And that’s everything I’ve got for now on this Warhammer 40K Rogue Trader trophy guide. I can’t wait to dive right in and explore a facet of Warhammer 40K that’s not centered around Chaos or space hulks. Maybe I just want to raid unsuspecting fleets and serve the Imperium as a privateer. I hope it lives up to expectations.
