There are just very few places that offer enough alcohol to get drunk. Shantytown is one of them. After you step out of the elevator (in the very beginning of the area), keep going straight until you come to a pub. Inside the pub is a lot of alcohol. Pick up alcohol until the screen gets blurry and then shoot the people sitting at the table.
All kill related trophies can be farmed by restarting the checkpoint. So if you cannot get 5 kills in one go you can start another try and your total kills will add up.
30. David & Goliath (10G) — Killed 20 “Heavy Hitter” enemies.
31. Heartbreaker (50G) — Killed a Handyman by only shooting his heart.
Location: The Plaza of Zeal
You will encounter the first Handyman in an area called “The Plaza of Zeal”, after leaving the Gunsmith Shop for the first time. The heart of the Handyman is some sort of orange glowing machine on his chest. In the same area where the Handyman spawns is a sniper rifle. Get the sniper rifle and wait until the Handyman stops for a moment. Sometimes he will stand still for a second to protect the heart with his hand. That’s when you need to aim using R3 (PS3) / Right Stick (X360). As soon as he stops protecting the heart, shoot it immediately. You have to do this 6 times in a row, without hitting any other body parts. Simply restart the checkpoint to try it again.
Note: Keep the following things in mind…
– Play on easy difficulty!
– Do not use any vigors against the Handyman. All vigors do a little bit of damage, which counts as hitting his entire body.
– Do not equip any piece of gear that automatically hurts attacking enemies.
