Crisis Core Reunion Chapter 2 Missable Trophies

Crisis Core Reunion Banora Treasures Trophy Guide

When you first reach Banora Village you'll get a notification that there are sparkling items on the ground and that you should interact with all of them on the ground now and that you'll be able to pick them up later.

It's recommended that you make a special save in the village so if the Trophy doesn't trigger you can return to make sure you've picked up them all.

Walk around the perimeter of Banora Village and interact with each of the glowing treasures and remember their location.

Later on in the chapter, after you've had your chance to earn the Slicin' SOLDIER Trophy you'll return to Banora Village as an air raid is taking place. You'll have a limited amount of time to run around and pick up all of the treasures in the shining spots that you interacted with earlier. Once you've picked them all up and entered Angeal's house this Trophy will trigger.

There are 5 treasures - 3 in the village, and 2 further down the path after you enter Angeal's House.

If the Trophy doesn't trigger then there might be one that you missed, reload your save and attempt it again.


Crisis Core Reunion Slicin' SOLDIER Trophy Guide

During Chapter 2 after meeting with Genesis in the Banora Apple Factory you'll be informed by Tseng that a raid is occurring on Banora Village. Before you leave the factory make sure you save your game.

Exit the factory (be sure to open the two chests right outside the building) and head towards Banora Village. There will be a minigame in the passage towards the village where 10 shells will be fired at you and you need to slash at them at just the right time to disarm them. To obtain the Slicin' SOLDIER Trophy you need to perfectly slash all 10 shells.

There's no option to retry from the minigame so if you miss one then reload the game and your save, or finish the minigame for practise and then reload your save by pressing Start > Options > Load and selecting the correct file.

Crisis Core Reunion First-Rate SOLDIER Trophy Guide

Complete his gauntlet of four challenges in order to obtain this Trophy. The beast enemies in the first three tests are all weak to Blizzard magic so be sure to have one equipt. The final fight will be against a powerful Behemoth variant but if you're decently leveled and have been completing side quests you should be able to make quick work of this battle.

While talking with Professor Hojo after the fight against the Behemoth you'll unlock the First-Rate SOLDIER Trophy.


Crisis Core Reunion Master Mako Stone Miner Trophy Guide

When you first gain control of Zack on the SOLDIER floor of the Shinra Building you should head towards the Mako Room. Inside you'll find a Mako scientist who is worried about the Materia Creation room being shut down due to low production. Speaking with the Mako Scientist will unlock mission set M8-2: Mako Stones, specifically M8-2-1: SPR Mako Stone. These missions range from 1-Star all the way up to 4-Star so you

The rank of the missions in this quest line range from 1-Star all the way up to 4-Star so while you can begin this quest in Chapter 3 it's likely that you won't be strong enough to finish the final mission and hand it all in until you enter the free-roam section of Chapter 5

Crisis Core Reunion Everyone's Hero Trophy Guide

As you progress through the story of Chapter 3 the Shinra Building will come under attack. You'll be in the middle of a discussion with Director Lazard in the Director's office when this event kicks off. In order to obtain this Trophy you need to save everyone that's requesting help during this attack.

Make sure you don't walk too far north towards the objective in LOVELESS Avenue otherwise you'll trigger a fight with a Genensis clone that will end the chapter.


Crisis Core Reunion Chapter 4 Missable Trophies

Good Match for Aerith Trophy Guide

When you're in the slums, you'll enter the Sector 5 Market with Aerith. You'll have to catch the kid, Bruno, who steals your wallet and get it back. It's your choice as to how you go about it, but before leaving the Sector 5 Market, make sure you poke around. There's a few things to do, all of which affect this trophy - which requires you to have 75 affection points with Aerith and must be completed during this chapter. Here's what you need to do in order to unlock this trophy:

  • Talk to all 3 shopkeepers while searching for Bruno (10 points each)
  • Talk to the girl in a blue dress, and then wait 10 times (10 points)
  • Talk to the boy in a corner, and give him 10 potions (10 points)
  • Once you find Bruno, offer to buy the medicine or fight the monsters, it doesn't matter which. (10 points)
  • After finding Bruno, you'll want to head the Materia Vendor, and pick up Materia for him in under 20 seconds. (5 points). See below for another achievement tied to this "Godlike"
  • (Save before this) After finding Bruno, head to "Shopping Paradise" and create a Perfect Blend. (15 points) See below for another achievement tied to this - "Master Blender" and note that creating anything less than "good" will prevent you from getting this achievement!

If you've done all this - after going to the Park with Aerith and then returning back to the Market to leave - Bruno will talk with you and compliment you and Aerith on being a good couple, which will make this trophy pop.

Master Blender Trophy Guide

When you're in the slums, you'll enter the Sector 5 Market with Aerith. You'll have to catch the kid, Bruno, who steals your wallet and get it back. It's your choice as to how you go about it, but before leaving the Sector 5 Market, make sure you poke around. At the shop called "Shopping Paradise" you'll have an opportunity to blend two perfumes to create the "Perfect" scent. If you do the optimal # of drops, you'll unlock the Master Blender Achievement.

To do this, you'll need to count the number of drops and match what the shopkeeper told you the "Optimal Number" was.

  • Drip = +1
  • DripDrip = +2
  • Splash! = +10

Best recommendation of this is to count out loud as it goes by - the text will move very quick. I.e. - (Drip)1, (DripDrip) 2 3, (Drip) 4. Just add 10 when you see splash, and hit the number just right and Aerith will say it smells "REALLY" good, and you'll get this achievement!

Crisis Core Reunion Bingo! Trophy Guide

During Chapter 5 you have a chance to return to the Sector 5 slums. Once here speak with the boy in the corner to start the Number Guessing game. He will challenge you to guess how many kids will walk by and you'll have to wager money. Manage to win the game and you'll earn the Bingo! Trophy.

Easy way to get this: if your affection is high enough, you can ask Aerith her opinion and she'll give you 2 choices. If you pay the boy another 80 gil, you'll have a much better shot at guessing right!

Crisis Core Reunion Godlike Trophy Guide

During Chapter 5 you have a chance to return to the Sector 5 slums. Once here speak to the man in the Materia Shop and he'll ask you to run around the market and pick up materia quickly. You'll need to race against the clock picking up 20 pieces of Materia as quickly as possible. Complete the run in less than 14 seconds to get this trophy, and be rewarded 100 Gil!

Crisis Core Reunion Cell Raider Trophy Guide

During Chapter 4 the Shinra Building will once again come under attack. As you climb up the Shinra Building you'll encounter Professor Hojo in the cloning lab. After you first speak with him he will step away from his terminal, go up to it and press the button to trigger the release of some dangerous specemin. Professor Hojo will request that you take care of them in a timely manner otherwise gas will flood the hall killing them all, you included.

Return to the hallway you came from and defeat the six enemies in the hallway, each will drop a key. Once you have all six keys head to the cells in the side room and open each of them one by one. Make sure you look inside as you'll find plenty of great loot including 5k Gil, consumable items, and powerful Materia including ATK Up and Soma.

Once the final cell has been opened and you return to Professor Hojo the Cell Raider Trophy will unlock.

Crisis Core Reunion Chapter 5 Missable Trophies

Crisis Core Reunion Shinra's Squats Champion Trophy Guide

When you first gain control of Zack on the SOLDIER floor of the Shinra Building you should head towards the Training Room. Inside approach the scientist in front of the computer directly in front of you and you'll be able to start a squat competition against four increasingly difficult opponents. In order to win you need to score higher than these approximate scores:

  1. Vs Trooper - 15 Squats
  2. Vs Captain - 21 Squats
  3. Vs SOLDIER 3rd Class - 45 Squats
  4. Vs SOLDIER 2nd Class - 54 Squats

If you fail at any of these challenges you can just repeat it so you can keep practising until you complete them all.

Here are some tips for squatting

  • With each squat you'll progressively get faster and faster so be sure to be speeding up your squats incrementally
  • Try to time your button presses for when Zack reaches the bottom of his squat, it helped me to focus on the lowest arc of his butt
  • After your seventh successful squat there's a small cutscene transition that's slightly off time with your squatting rate, wait back a fraction of a second to ensure you keep correct timing
  • During this cutscene it doesn't matter if you press the squat button or not but it's recommended that you do so that you can keep mental pace

Once you have squatted more than the SOLDIER 2nd Class you'll earn yourself the Shinra's Squats Champion Trophy. On top of earning a Trophy each opponent you defeat will earn you a different piece for one of the Flower Wagons that you can build in Chapter 7 to earn the Midgar Full of Flowers Trophy, be sure to check out our full guide to get the rest of the Wagon parts as there are three to build.

Crisis Core Reunion Master Infiltrator Trophy Guide

Continue in Chapter 5 until you reach the Shinra Facility near Modeoheim. You will be challenged to get through the Mako Excavation Facility without being discovered once.

Before you begin be sure to make a safety save at the save point nearby.

The entrance to the facility is to the right and counter-clockwise around the building from the entrance. At the beginning of the mission head forward and hide behind the barrier to Zack's 11 o'clock. Once the Shinra Soldier that's patrolling to the East walks past you headed West walk behind him. Once you turn the corner to the left there will be no one else to look out for. Just walk up to the top of the platform, and down into the facility to earn the Master Infiltrator Trophy.


Crisis Core Reunion Chapter 6 Missable Trophies

Crisis Core Reunion Immovable Object Trophy

Shortly into the attack of Junon you will be brought into a minigame where you need to defeat a certain number of enemies that are attacking the border. This minigame is almost like a wave assault game where enemies will spawn and slowly move toward the city.

In order to obtain the Immovable Object Trophy you need to defeat all 30 enemies that appear.

If you're having issues killing all of the enemies in time then here are a few tips:

  • Ensure you have your strongest Thunder materia equipped as all enemies in this minigame are weak to it
  • Thunder materia pierces through enemies so try to dodge around to line up a few enemies to hit multiple at once and not waste as much MP


Crisis Core Reunion Chapter 7 Missable Trophies

Crisis Core Reunion Fan Club Savior Trophy Guide

This trophy is for helping every Fan Club continue their activity. There is a Sephiroth, Genesis, and Angeal fanclub in Midgar that after the disappearance and desertion of each of the 1st Rank Soldiers begin to have their faith in their idols waver. You'll need to complete the following objectives during your free-roam time in Chapter 7 to earn this Trophy.


Saving the Angeal Fan Club

Travel to Sector 8, where the fountain is, and head south. You'll see a boy standing on his own, speak with him and he'll tell you that his mother has abandoned him.

After talking with the boy head to the train station to speak with his mother. She will explain to you that she's given up on being a mother and running the Angeal fan club and is going to leave to search for him. 

You'll have a chance to respond to her about what Angeal would say about her decision, choose the option "A mother without honor is nothing but a monster."

The mother will see the error of her ways and return to her son, head back to Sector 8 yourself and talk with the mother and son and they'll let you know that they're going to keep running the club together.

Saving the Genesis Fan Club

Travel to Sector 8, where the fountain is, and head south. Talk to the woman standing on her own, she'll let you know she runs one of the Genesis Fan Clubs but without funding there's a chance they go under. You'll get a few options to suggest to her about how to remain a club but it doesn't matter which option you pick, I picked that she should find a club with a lot of money.

After speaking with her travel North to LOVELESS Avenue, continue north and talk with the woman in the alley who runs a different Genesis Fan Club. Zack will explain that the two clubs should merge.

Both women will agree to merge their clubs so that they can continue to show their fandom of Genesis.


Saving the Sephiroth Fan Club (This may not be necessary for the Trophy)

Head to the Slums Park and interact with the woman standing behind the playground equipment and she will ask you questions about your devotion to Sephiroth. The answers are as follows:

  • What is the name of Sephiroth's beloved sword? - Masamune
  • What is Sephiroth's ultimate attack? - Super Nova
  • Which is Sephiroth's dominant hand? - Left Hand

With that you'll be a member and the club will want to go on.

After saving all of the clubs the Fan Club Saviour Trophy will unlock.


Crisis Core Reunion Midgar Full of Flowers Trophy

The Midgar Full of Flowers Trophy requires Zack to gather together all of the parts to build three different Flower Wagons for Aerith.
