Find all 100 treasures
Uncharted 3 has a total of 101 treasures. You just need 100 for the trophy, meaning you are allowed to miss one. The “Strange Relic” does also count as a treasure (see Relic Finder Trophy below).
All treasures are saved automatically when collecting them. You can replay each chapter at any time to pick up missing collectibles.

Find the Strange Relic
Uncharted 3 contains 100 Treasures + 1 Bonus Treasure, known as the Strange Relic.
It’s located in Chapter 4 (Run to Ground), soon after entering the underground section. You will come to a large rusty tube that leads to a lower level (cannot be missed). Before going all the way down you should grab the Strange Relic on the very top to earn the Relic Finder Trophy.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (12) Quick Study Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (13)
Inspect almost every display case in the Cartagena Museum
This is story-related and can only be done in Chapter 2 – Greatness from small Beginnings.
There are 22 display cases and you will have to inspect 18 of them. Just don’t inspect the one in the middle of the room, on the second floor. If you do, a cutscene will trigger and you’d have to restart the whole chapter.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (15) Ride the Crocodile Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (16)
Stand on the crocodile in the Secret Library
Location: Chapter 5 – London Underground
Don’t worry, it’s not a real crocodile. Soon after finding the car in the underground, you will enter the secret library (can’t be missed). After some cutscenes you will receive a map and encounter a small group of enemies that are shooting at you. Leave the library and go up the stairs to your right (that’s where you were originally coming from before entering the room). Go around the railing until you reach the end of the room. Jump down and you should touch the crocodile.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (18) He’s Gonna Need a Sturgeon Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (19)
Hit three enemies with fish in the market
This can only be done during Chapter 10 – Historical Research.
You will get into a brawl with the guys in black suits who have been hunting you in previous chapters. You can find a fish on a table, in the middle of the market. You need to stand right next to it and press the Square Button when an enemy is close. Now get yourself killed and repeat twice. The checkpoint will reload, but the progress will still count.

Play in the swimming pool on the Cruise Ship
This can only be done in Chapter 14 – Cruisin’ For A Bruisin’
After climbing up some containers you will come to an area with 4 enemies. After defeating those enemies an armored enemy will spawn, followed by another group of 4 enemies. After taking all of them out you will need to open a red gate that leads to the area with the pool. Simply step in and the trophy is yours.

Defeat ten enemies using hand-to-hand combat on the back of the convoy trucks
This is story-related and can only be done in Chapter 20 – Caravan.
I show you a very easy way to get the trophy. Simply jump on the first truck and pull down the soldier by pressing the Square button. Now press the circle button while hanging off the ledge to kill yourself. Keep repeating this process 10 times and the trophy will pop.
Alternatively, you can jump from truck to truck and beat the enemies in fist fights (but it’s tricky on hard difficulties).

Defeat ten enemies in a row, alternating hand-to-hand combat and gunplay
The first good chance to get this is at the end of Chapter 6 – The Chateau. After finding Sully again you will have to fight a couple waves of enemies. More than enough to get the trophy. You will have to kill one enemy in hand-to-hand combat (Press Square Button) and the next one with a gun of your choice. Keep repeating the process until you get the trophy. It’s good to create an extra save game before the fight starts. Just to make sure you can go back if you mess up. The enemies that are killed by Sully do not count for this trophy.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (31) Headshot Expert Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (32)
Defeat five enemies in a row with headshots
A good spot appears at the very beginning of Chapter 8 – The Citadel, right in the first room with enemies. You can actually do this trophy anywhere, but if you mess up you can easily reload the checkpoint or restart the mission here.

Defeat five enemies in a row using stealth attacks
There is a good spot during Chapter #8 – The Citadel. After meeting up with Chloe and Cutter you will enter the courtyard of the citadel. There are six patrolling guards and you can take them out easily.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (37) Brute Beater Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (38)
Successfully counter all of a Brute’s damage-giving attacks
This doesn’t seem to work with the Brute in the first Chapter (the one that fights against you in the restroom). A good spot appears after climbing the tower in Chapter 8 – The Citadel.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (40) Dyno-Might Master Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (41)
Defeat four enemies with one explosion
Can be done easily during Chapter 16. You will need to open a door for Elena. To reach this door you will have to go over some rooftops and drop down into some kind of garage. Take out the guards silently and one of them should drop a bonus grenade (does only work when he didn’t notice you).
After you opened the door for Elena, a Jeep will come. Go to its backdoor and drop the grenade. 4 Guys should jump out of the truck and get killed instantly.
Reload the Checkpoint if you mess up.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (42)

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (43) Throwback Master Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (44)
Throw back a grenade and defeat two enemies at once
This can easily be done at the very beginning of Chapter 22. You will encounter some enemies and have to pass a bridge. Take out all enemies that move towards you and keep the ones on the bridge alive. They will be standing very close together which should make it easy to kill at least 2 with one grenade. Just wait at the doorway in front of them. After a couple seconds they should throw a grenade. A little timer will appear next to the grenade. Press Triangle when the cursor is in the white colored area. The grenade will explode if your timing isn’t correct. It’s highly recommended to do this on very easy. Otherwise, you will most likely die when you fail throwing back a grenade. Reload the checkpoint if you mess up.

Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (46) Rolling Ammo Master Uncharted 3 Strategy Guide | PowerPyx (47)
20 times in a row, pick up ammo while rolling
This one is super easy and can be done in 2 minutes. Simply roll over a weapon by pressing Circle and pick it up with Triangle. This will drop your previous weapon. Switch between picking up weapon A & B. Repeat the process 20 times to get the trophy. Make sure that you do this in an open area. Otherwise you might accidentally go into cover when pressing circle, which will break the streak.
