Are You Stuck Trying to Get A Better Mousetrap Trophy in Ghost Recon Wildlands?
If you are having trouble trying to get a better mousetrap trophy, have no fear. This quick guide will show you exactly where to go, no missions required. This is easily one of the hardest trophies to get in Ghost Recon Wildlands. You need to kill seven enemies with a single mine to get the mousetrap trophy. There is a similar achievement called Cluster Bomb, which is basically the same thing except you use C4.
Where to Go To Get The Trophy (It Isn’t The Deserter Mission)
Many Ghost Recon Wildlands guides will tell you to go mission for The Deserter. This is not necessary if you want another quick and easy option to get your trophy. This option sends you out to an area near the Salt Flats in Koani. See the image below for the exact location. You will be heading to the north east corner of Koani to an area called the Narco Slaughter.
There is a Rally Point that you can fast travel to. This makes it quick and easy if you need to make multiple attempts to get A Better Mousetrap trophy. It took me a few tries, but after seeing the video posted by Malvicious on YouTube, the whole process was quite easy. Once you reach the rally point, there will be a pickup truck parked and waiting for you. Most likely it is the 2016 Nakahawa extended cab with 4 wheel drive, XM satellite radio (Bolivia channels only), and crash test rating of you can drive it off a cliff and survive. Anyhow, just jump in the truck and select the area on the map labeled Narco Slaughter.
Getting the Trophy
The execution to get A Better Mousetrap trophy requires either luck or skill. Most definitley it will require some patience. You will want to creep up on your targets without getting spotted. There are a few different rocks you can hide behind to stay out of sight. In order to get their attention you will need a flare gun. Once you are in a comfortable position, fire a flare near your targets, but also be sure it is near you as well. You want a short run distance to your victims, but you need to be sure you get all 7 of them grouped up. You can see the image below of your unsuspecting achievement volunteers.
The Hard Part
To get A Better Mousetrap trophy in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you have to take down 7 targets with one mine. You know where to go, you see your targets in the image above. You fire your flare gun and wait for them to gather into one area. If you look at the top right of the above image, you will see there is an eighth target. You can either quietly shoot him, or let him join the group after you fire the flare.
So everyone is gathered into a group, you want to have a flashbang prepared and start running toward the group. Don’t throw the Flashbang so early that you risk the chance of the effect wearing off while you reach your mine drop spot. Also, keep in mind if any of the targets begin to shoot at you, your AI team will start shooting back and screw up your chances of success.
Once you have blinded the group with a Flashbang or two, you need to quickly switch to your mine, drop it in the middle of the group very quickly. Start backing up and aim at the mine with your gun. Shoot the mine (don’t accidently shoot and kill your targets). If all goes according to plan, your shots should blow up the mine and you will get your trophy. You might even survive!

Here is the video version (I suggest watching it a couple of times). Take note on where our player is taking cover, how he switches grenades/mines/flares quickly while running. Also, as mentioned earlier in this guide, it may take you a few tries to get this right. But once you do, you will be well on your way to a Ghost Recon Wildlands Platinum Trophy. Here is the video below:
There you have it. Easy enough isn’t it? Just be sure you take your time and don’t give up. This can be a very frustrating trophy to get if you are having an off day/night. When you get your trophy, share a link to your video in the comments below.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming my friends!
