To earn this trophy, you simply need to kill 15 enemies with melee attacks. To do this, approach an enemy and press
to perform a melee attack. The melee attack must land the final, killing blow to count. This will likely occur naturally through play, since the kills are cumulative (not in-a-row, or without dying) across your full playthrough.
However, melee / stealth TAKEDOWNS
qualify, or count towards this achievement, only normal melee attacks like punches, will. ( In my initial guide on release, events of my personal playthrough led me to believe they did, but could not confirm after completing it. Thanks for the clarification below guys!)
There is no in game tracker of total melee kills.
Instead, just reach an area of the level where several waves of enemies come pouring in. You can find at least 1 of these areas in every level. *As suggested by xR3DC10V3Rx
, the logical place to begin or even farm and complete this trophy is at the Chapter 1: Just Another London Morning
checkpoint area.* Then, simply run to the enemy that least exposes you to enemy gunfire, and press
when close to melee them.
If you don't earn all 15 melee kills during one run, just kill every enemy in the area until only one is left, and either let him kill you to reset the checkpoint, or kill him, quickly pause, and reset the checkpoint. Your kill count is saved regardless of dying, quitting or resetting. Repeat 2-3 times until the trophy pops.
