Inked Up & Fully Inked

As you perform certain actions, like killing an enemy or liberating an Outpost, you will earn XP. This will fill up a gauge, that when full, will give you a single Skill Point, which can be used to purchase a skill from one of three different skill trees. In order to get Inked Up , you need to purchase 5 skills and you will need to get every single skill for Fully Inked .

Certain actions give more XP than others, such as liberating an Outpost without being seen at all, giving you a whopping 1500 XP. With there being 34 Outposts in the game, that totals 51,000 XP you can get for being stealthy.

Money to Burn

Spending $5000 at the shop isn’t that much and it will likely unlock as you progress through the game, since you’re going to be spending money to refill ammo and such. The regular weapons should be unlocked for free by activating the Radio Towers, but the Signature Weapons (regular weapons with predetermined attachments) cost way more than the needed amount. Also, buying the maps for Collectibles and Loot Chests will set you past the $5000 mark.

Aftermarket Junkie

The best weapon to use for this is the starting pistol, the 1911. This is ideal because the weapon doesn’t have any attachments and only six paint jobs, totaling $1200. Once you buy all the paint jobs, you’ll get the trophy/achievement.

Rebel With a Cause, Island Liberator & Unheard

Throughout the Rook Islands are enemy outposts, which are shown on your map with red flags, and you can also see them by the rising black smoke. Whenever you kill all the enemies within an outpost, you will liberate it. There’s a total of 34 outposts in the game, spread out across the northern and southern islands.

Also, each outpost will have an alarm or two in it, which are triggered by the enemies inside should they see you and hit it. If you shoot the alarm, then that particular one will be out of commission. However, if you approach the alarm and hold the designated button, then you will shut off all the alarms in that outpost. Alternatively, you can kill all enemies in an outpost without the Detection Meter filling up and turning red.

Full Bars

Radio Towers are shown on your map with a tower-like symbol, with what look like signals coming off of it. Whenever you begin the game, the layout of your map will be hidden unless you activate these Radio Towers, the first of which is done in Down in Amanaki Town . You will need to climb and jump your way to the top, where you can remove the scrambler put there. There’s a total of 18 towers, but you only need to activate 9 of them (best to do them all anyways).

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Activate 9 radio towers.
