Mercy Trophy Guide – A Plague Tale Requiem
In the game’s fourth chapter, Protector’s Duty, there will be a section where you would have to solve a puzzle whilst cooperating with an enemy soldier to progress.
However, at the end of the puzzle, the soldier will realize who Amicia is and would start hunting you down. You need to act quickly here to get the trophy.
Before he can attack you, or even before recognizes you, throw a tar at him in the direction of his torch.
This will burn his clothes and blind him temporarily, thus, creating a path for you to go across him and over some rats. Do so while the guard is still reacting to the tar you threw at him.
You can actually kill the guard in this section by throwing a rock directly in his face but keeping him alive is how you’d get the trophy.
Once you push the metal door ahead of you open, the Mercy trophy should promptly unlock.
