    Missable There are 69 weapons in total in the game. They do not have to be acquired in the same playthrough, but you must save over the same file after you complete each playthrough. For this trophy, you will need to get 65 weapons. The four remaining weapons can be acquired by getting some emblems and since they can also be acquired via passwords, they are not needed for the trophy. Most weapons can be found as you play the game in certain parts. Almost all of the weapons can be purchased via the Drebin Store. Below is a list of all the weapons and their locations. Note that the prices posted in the Drebin Store are the standard prices, not including the 20% discount on Wednesdays and Sundays and the 50% discount during Act 5. It is advised to set your PS3 clock system to Sunday to get discounts and/or wait until Act 5 to buy the weapons in half the price.
