|Party’s Still On!
Find the party.
This is the first trophy you’ll earn from the DLC. Finding the party is part of the first mission and is therefore unmissable. Once you use your drop-pod in order to get to Xylourgos. after moving towards your objective you’ll see another drop-pod. This drop-pod has Gaige and her robotic companion “Deathtrap” There will be a few waves of enemies at this point DO NOT SHOOT THEM! Let Deathtrap kill them as you’ll need the kills for the “ Good One, Babe” trophy and this is missable! for more info go to the “ Good One, Babe” trophy.
Once you’ve gotten to witness Deathtrap get some kills in, and Gaige is ready to get a move on, follow her to the Lodge, Once you arrive and the mission is complete and you will obtain the trophy.
|Love is the Fifth Dimension
Marry your friends.
This trophy is awarded for finishing the final mission of the DLC.
You make your way through waves of enemies in Love’s Desire, in order to get to Eleanor and the Heart. It’s a simple boss fight, Focus of attacking Eleanor in the beginning and then when she becomes invulnerable attack the crystals coming out of the Heart and then once the total Boss Health is at 25% refocus on Eleanor to finish the fight and the trophy from there on out is as simple as pressing on Hammerlock

|Older Than the Trees
Kill the Wendigo.
This is the 3rd Main mission of the DLC, This is story related and can not be missed. You and Hammerlock must track down a wild Wendigo. This is a very straight forward mission that just has you going from one spot to another clearing large amount of varying enemies. Once you reach the Wendigo the fight might be a bit difficult if your gear is not up to date with your level or if you have some particularly weak gear. At this point in the game, however, you should have some good legendary loot.
Notes: The Wendigo is immune to Fire damage, So avoid fire-type weaponry.
Warning: For those playing on a Standard PS4 This Boss fight might lag a lot. Framerate will be lowered to around 10 FPS. So be prepared for that.

|Good One, Babe
Watch Deathtrap kill 50 enemies.
This is an odd trophy. Although the description mentions that you must “Watch” Deathtrap kill 50 enemies, it may still count Deathtrap killing enemies as it just damaging a target and you / another companion finishing it off. It may also count even if you don’t witness Deathtrap perform the kill.
This trophy is a bit buggy. For one person, the trophy unlocked after he witnessed Deathtrap kill 15 enemies. I personally witnessed 27 and the trophy popped. Just make sure you stay out of combat and keep your eyes on Deathtrap at all times.
Playing as Fl4k may be a disadvantage as Fl4k’s pet can kill potential targets that Deathtrap is focused on. But, it may still count these as kills towards Deathtraps total as mentioned above, this trophy is extremely buggy.
“fast travel to Negul Neshai and head over to the final boss of the area. Deathtrap will always spawn in the arena too and can one-shot enemies with a powerful blast. So just run the fight a few times while being sure to get the normal enemies that spawn in the fight as close to Deathtrap as possible so he does his attack on them rather than the boss, and when you run out of normal enemies just damage the boss and more will spawn. Rinse and repeat until the trophy pops!” – Credit to @DeAdSHott_ZA on PSN
You can also reset missions on True Vault Hunter Mode if you wish.

There are also some ECHO logs in side-missions but these don’t count towards the trophy.

Rare Spawn #2 – Shiverous the Unscathed
Location – Negul Neshai
Rare Spawn #3 – Fungal Gorger

|I’m Floundering Up Here
Listen to 25 fish jokes.
Hope you like fish jokes, because there will be a lot of them here. This is a bit of an annoying trophy as it requires a lot of reloading.
1. There is a fish on the far left side of the ground floor of The Lodge which can be used. The only problem is, you need to reload your game every time you use it in order to use it again.
This is the Fastest method:
2. There is a room decoration that can be placed in your cabin of Sanctuary III where you can press to talk to the fish. Just spam the button until the trophy pops. This wall decoration can be found by farming the loot piles in The Lodge.

This is the slowest method:
Fast travel to Withernot Cemetery in Cursehaven, and run forwards and go up the stairs. Now keep moving forwards and avoid all enemies and just rush to the open room on the left at the dead-end of the map. Press on the fish. There’s a 50% chance the fish will tell you a joke. Whether it does or not, pressing will count it as you hearing a joke and after 25 times, you’ll get the trophy. So once you activate/loot the fish, press , go to “Quit Game” and once you’re back in the menu go back into the game and you’ll load back to Withernot Cemetary, go back to the fish, press , repeat 25 times.
