This guide will not only list, but also help you earn every PS4 trophy and Xbox achievement in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Getting them all will unlock Master Assassin, the PlayStation platinum trophy and Xbox equivalent. That’s a huge task for any gamer, but today we’re going to help you knock some of these out as efficiently as possible.
There are several trophies in the game that tied to the story, so we won’t be providing tips to get them. We’ll list them, but you can find information on how to beat the various sequences in our Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Walkthrough and Guide.

Playing the story will undoubtedly help you unlock several of the following trophies as well, but sure to be left with more that need your attention. Here is a complete list, and tips, to unlock the remaining trophies and achievements in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
Friends at My Back
To earn this trophy you must recruit five Rooks at the same time. You must be level 5 in order for this to be possible, but otherwise it’s very simple. Just locate Rooks on the streets of London, and press the R1 (PS4) or Right Bumper (Xbox One) button to recruit them. When you have five the trophy will unlock.
The War at Home
This trophy is earned by completing the World War I simulation, a series of side missions that are available in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. We won’t be providing a full walkthrough for this, as completing them should be fairly self-explanatory.
To unlock this trophy, players must sample all of the beer brands in London. These will show up on your map as a beer bottle. Locate one, set a waypoint, and then visit the exact location. When you have found and tried them all, the trophy will unlock.
No Ticket is not a trophy that you can get without trying. You’re going to have to put in some effort to pull this off. Luckily, players can load up Sequence 2: A Simple Plan, and kick 50 enemies off of trains in just a few minutes. You’ll find six on the train that Evie begins on, and when you kick all six, restart the mission and do it again.
To earn this trophy, you must conquer three Gang Strongholds while completing the optional objectives that are listed. Typically this will be to prevent the lookouts from calling reinforcements. We unlocked this randomly just completing the Gang Strongholds, so you shouldn’t have many problems.
In order to unlock this trophy, players must win at least three different Fight Clubs. To unlock Flight Clubs, first visit and speak with Robert Topping, giving you the Fight Club locations on your map. Once you have completed three of them, the trophy will pop for you.
A Quarter-Furlong at a Time
In order to unlock this trophy, players must finish first in three different types of street races. You can find the street races scattered on your map throughout London. Ensure that you aren’t completing the same type of race three times, or the trophy will not unlock for you.
In order to get this trophy, gamers will have to complete 10 Raids of any type with either Evie or Jacob. For this, head for the Thames and look for cargo ships that can be raided. You’ll want to ensure you have your Rope Launcher for this, making it easier to navigate the water. Look for cargo ships marked in red on your map.
To unlock Thieftaker, play through the Bounty Hunt side missions located on your map. You’ll have to ensure that you kidnap and deliver three separate targets (alive) in order to get the trophy. Killing them and delivering their bodies will not count.
For this trophy to unlock, players must complete three Templar Hunts and the challenges that go along with them. Typically this will involve a unique kill or complete stealth, but they aren’t too difficult. For example, if you need to perform an Aerial Assassination, do so, and then just sprint to safety. You don’t have to fuss with the goons for the most part, just the Templar.
Children’s Aid Society
You must complete five Child Liberation missions to unlock this trophy, which is fairly simple to do. You don’t even have to complete the challenges. Just do the minimum required to free the children and move on to the next. You can spot Child Liberation missions by the ball and chain icon on your map.
In order to unlock this trophy you must successfully escort 10 friendly cargo shipments while roaming about London. This can be made easier if you have a five Rooks at your side, so don’t be afraid to recruit a few any time you’re out and about.
This trophy requires that you unlock all of the Secrets of London. Luckily, we have a full guide for that group of collectibles. Visit our Secrets of London guide to unlock the Aegis outfit for Evie.
A Broad Base
To unlock this trophy, you must reach loyalty level 1 with all associates. This can be done by clearing out the various boroughs by doing the random activities, such as Templar Hunts, Bounty Hunts, Child Liberation and Gang Strongholds.
Bedfellows, Strange or Otherwise
This trophy is related to the last, and players must reach level 5 with one associate. You can easily do this if you clear all of London out, but it wouldn’t hurt to focus on one type of event over the others if you want to do it quickly. We used the Child Liberation for this, easily getting the trophy.
Needle in a Haystack
In order to unlock this trophy you must kill five enemies from the same haystack. Luckily, you don’t have to do it in one run. We loaded up Sequence 2: A Simple Plan for this, reaching the vantage point after the train ride. Perform a Leap of Faith into the haystack below, and then kill the nearby guard by drawing him in with your whistle. Restart the checkpoint and do it again. Once you hit five you’re all done.
This trophy will require you to conquer all of the boroughs in London. We did this while we were working through the Secrets of London collectibles, but it’s also a really good way to rank up. Complete all Templar Hunts, Bounty Hunts, Child Liberation, Gang Strongholds and Gang Wars to earn this trophy.
Players must unlock 10 different perks to earn this trophy. Open your pause menu to see a list of all the perks and your progress toward them. Each one will have a description of how to unlock it. Do this for 10 of them and the trophy is yours.
Keys to the City
This trophy will require that players unlock all Gang Upgrades. Visit your pause menu to see the progress, and be sure to focus on the Swindler branch to earn lots of money, allowing you to purchase more upgrades in the future.
The Artisan trophy/achievement will ask that players craft a level 10 item. You will likely have to hit rank 10 to make this happen, but otherwise it’s fairly simple and straightforward. As long as you have the right materials, you’re in business.
This trophy is specific to Jacob, and requires that players unlock every skill in the Fight branch of his Skill tree. You should be able to do this by the end of the game, especially if you have been working on clearing out the boroughs and finishing the side quests.
Like the previous trophy was all Jacob, this one is about Evie. Players must unlock all of the Stealth branch of Evie’s Skill tree. Again, it should happen by the end of the game, but if not you can finish it up by focusing on some of the side quests and random activities.
Wonder of the Age
This trophy requires players to reach level 10, which is done by completing the story, crowd events, side missions, and anything else that gives you experience. It should be no problem for any player that has decided to complete the game.
The Ordinary Criminal trophy is earned by completing 20 random crowd events. These spawn while you’re moving around London, and are usually represented by both visual and audio notifications. Look at your map to see when one starts, and complete it to get closer to the trophy.
Language of Flowers
This trophy asks that players find all of the Pressed Flowers around London. Some will show up on your map, but you may need to buy a collectibles map from a vendor to locate them all. These are used to change the color of your outfits, and collecting them all will unlock the trophy.
Student of History
Players must collect all of the Historical Posters to get this trophy, and again, a collectibles map would be very helpful. You will see these icons pop up on your map as posters. Expect to spend a couple hours in travel time alone unlocking this.
A Life in Letters
This trophy requires players to collect all 12 Royal Letters that are found in Westminster. It should only take you about an hour to do, and we have a handy little guide to help you do it.
This trophy is one most players should get out of necessity, as it only requires them to synchronize with all of the View Points around the city. These are all marked on your map by default, so players should have it completed within a few minutes of attempting it.
This trophy is going to take some work, as it requires players to get 100 percent synchronization in the main memories. This means completing all of the challenges in each memory, as skipping them will often leave you at about 90 percent synchronization. Consult our Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Walkthrough and Guide for this.
To unlock the Furious trophy, players must destroy 20 vehicles by ramming them. Just grab a carriage and start ramming into random vehicles to destroy them. When your carriage breaks, get a new one and get back to work. Some of this will also be completed naturally throughout the story.
What is Wrong with You?
This trophy requires players to flip five vehicles by shooting their horses. It seems mean, but for the gamer after that platinum, it must be done. It’s fairly self-explanatory, however, and shouldn’t require much effort to complete.
Look Out Below
This trophy is easily earned in Sequence 4: Unnatural Selection, where you need to kill three guards with hanging barrels. If you have already passed it, load it up again and look for a hanging barrel at the very beginning. Wait for three guards to gather under it, killing them all and unlocking the trophy.
You Wouldn’t Steal a Policeman’s Helmet
This trophy will ask that you hijack 20 police carriages, something that you can easily do while you are roaming around London. Finding 20 in one place might be challenging, so just hijack any that you see while you are busy completing other tasks and you’ll be there in no time at all.
This trophy requires that players get a 40 hit combo. This can be done in the Fight Club, or any time that players are surrounded. Just ensure that you’re dodging, blocking and breaking the blocks of your enemies, otherwise you won’t get it.
Whirlwind of Death
This trophy is earned by performing 50 multi-finishers. To do this, leave at least two enemies near death, when you do, attack one, and you’ll perform the multi-finisher. Our advice is to just let this happen as you play through the game. When you’re done, go back and intentionally unlock this by completing however many multi-finishers remain.
Blade in the Crowd
Players must assassinate 50 enemies to earn this trophy. This will include Air Assassinations, unique kills, and anything else that doesn’t result in direct, hand-to-hand combat (such as the multi-finishers). This should happen as you play the game, so don’t worry about forcing it.
This trophy will require players to infect four enemies with a Hallucinogenic Dart at the same time. To do this, target the fires that enemies often gather around. When you see four within the radius on your screen (shown while aiming the dart), fire and infect them to get the trophy.
Blade from Above
This requires players to Air Assassinate 20 enemies from a zip line, which is actually easier than it sounds. Simply deploy a Rope Launcher above where an enemy is standing, and then press the assassinate button as you pass over their head. You’ll drop and kill them. Do this 20 times and the trophy is yours.
This trophy requires players to shoot 50 enemies before they shoot you. To do this, wait for an enemy to shoot you, but press the counter button before they can. Once you do it 50 times, you’re done with the trophy. The video from the previous tip actually shows how you can do this very easily.
The final (non platinum) trophy of the game requires players to destroy 500 destructible objects with a carriage. This would include light posts, so you can really just drive around London and spend most of your time on the sidewalk. It will take some time, but you should be able to knock this off in one play session.
This trophy is the platinum, and is only unlocked once you have gotten every other trophy in the game. That’s the only requirement, although it is clearly a big job.
To use your time efficiently, we would advise that you complete the game and let whatever trophies you’re going to unlock happen naturally. When you’re done, you can look through the list and revisit the ones that you still don’t have. This will prevent you from wasting an hour doing something that might happen through your normal game play.
