Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Trophies Guide


1. Master of Mordor (Platinum) — One has walked in Mordor.

2. You Will Obey (Bronze) — Make an uruk yours.

3. Height of Despair (Bronze) — Use Strike From Above while at least 60 feet above your target.

Location: At the most eastern forge tower of Udun, which is the map where the game starts. There are a couple of enemies roaming that area that you need to attract to kill.

Attract one Uruk by pressing the R2 + Triangle buttons on your PlayStation controller. Lure the Uruk all the way to the tower, climb up and perform a Stealth Takedown from above with the R2 + Square buttons on your controller.
Note: The Uruk may not be in combat mode when doing this! You must stay undetected, or else you will only knock the Uruk down instead of performing a stealth kill.

4. Burning Vengeance (Bronze) — Perform an Execution on a flaming Berserker.

5. And it Burns, Burns, Burns (Bronze) — Use the Detonate ability to burn 50 uruks.

6. Iron of Death (Bronze) — Issue a Death Threat, and then successfully kill the target.

7. A New Master (Bronze) — Brand a Captain while in combat.

Requirement: Cannot be done before you’ve completed the story mission “Queen of the Shore” and buy the “Combat Drain” ability. Beating the mission will unlock the Brand ability and buying “Combat Drain” allows you to brand enemies during combat, without having to grab them.

Captains spawn randomly all over the map, but each one of them works for this. Bring down their health until the skull symbol turns green, then unleash your Combat Drain finisher several times.

8. No Power in Numbers (Bronze) — Help a Captain survive a Recruitment Power Struggle, and then kill him and all his new recruits.

9. Black Celebration (Bronze) — Poison a Captain at his own Feast.

Requirement: Cannot be done before you’ve completed “The Outcasts” Story mission early on in the game, which gives you the Poison ability.

Feasts randomly show up on your map and are marked with a red icon. If no Feast is available then scroll over a Forge Tower on your map and advance the time. This will make new events spawn. Do this until a Feast appears.
There are multiple drinking bowls in each Feast. The Captain will walk from one bowl to the next. You must poison one of them without being seen and wait for the Captain to drink from it.
Note: If you are detected you must quit the game to try the event again!

10. Stinking Rebels (Bronze) — Brand 5 Bodyguards of a Warchief, turning them against him in combat.

11. A Graug’s Heel (Bronze) — Capitalize on a Warchief’s Fear.

12. Divide and Conquer (Bronze) — Eliminate the bodyguards of two Warchiefs, then draw them out and kill them.

13. Lord and Master (Bronze) — Brand all 5 Warchiefs.

14. Power Vacuum (Bronze) — Kill all 5 Warchiefs before any uruk take their place.

15. Rise and Fall (Bronze) — After an uruk kills you to become a Captain, help him become a Warchief, then kill him.

16. The Spirit of Mordor (Bronze) — Start a Riot by commanding a Warchief to attack another Warchief.

17. The White Rider (Bronze) — Liberate 30 slaves in 180 seconds while riding a caragor.

18. Unleashed (Bronze) — Free 5 caragors from cages.

19. Jaws of Death (Bronze) — Attract caragors with bait 5 times.

20. Fly you fools! (Bronze) — Make 20 uruks flee by dropping Morgai Fly nests.

Location: Can be done before you kill the first of the four Warchiefs at the West Garrison Stronghold. This is not a requirement, just an indication that this can be done during Story Mode when you’re tasked to invade Uruk Duels.

Look for the Duel between Dush Bone-Snapper VS. Mormog the Claw and hanging above them you’ll see a Morgai Fly nests. Shoot it with an arrow to make it drop on top of the crowd of over 20 Uruks below and see them flee.
