Scott here makin' another guide. This time it's Assassin's Creed II.
Most of the trophies are very simple, but may be time consuming, but if you take your time to do them and be patient while collecting all 100 feathers the platinum shouldn't cause you much hassle.

Street Cleaner – Bronze
Hide 5 dead bodies in a Bale of Hay.
– Kill 5 guards and hide all 5 bodies in a single Bale of Hay. To hide a body you pick it up by pressing O and dump it in the Bale of Hay by pressing circle.
Fly Swatter – Bronze
Kick a Guard while using the Flying Machine.
– Missable Trophy – In DNA Sequence 8 when you are doing the 'Infrequent Flyer' memory, while you are using the Flying Machine, target a guard by pressing L1 and fly towards him and you will automatically kick him. This is the only trophy in the game which can be missed so make sure you get this trophy before completing the memory.
Messer Sandman – Bronze
Stun 4 guards at once by throwing sand in their face.
– Get 4 or more guards to follow you and run away, while they are following you turn round and hold square while you have no weapons in your hands. This will make you throw sand at them. Do this before they get the chance to croud around you because the sand will only go in one direction. To be able to get this trophy you must first have learned the skill in the Training Ring in Monterigionni.
Doctor – Bronze
Perform an Air Assassination on a Poisoned NPC.
– While using the Poison Blade, walk up to a guard and press square to poison him, then change back to your Hidden Blade. Jump on something high and lock onto him. Press square to assassinate him and the trophy is yours.
No-hitter – Bronze
Kill 10 enemies while remaining in conflict without being hit.
– This is quite easy if you know how to do it. Find a Restricted area and get the attention of ten or more guards, get them to chase you and let them croud around you. Throw a smoke bomb and begin to assassinate them with your Hidden Blade. When the smoke begins to ware off and the guards start to straighten up, throw another smoke bomb on the ground and continue killing the guards. Just do this until you have killed ten of them.
Kleptomaniac – Bronze
Pickpocket 1000 Florins.
– While in Low Profile, hold X to walk fast and bump into people and you will pickpocket them. Keep doing this until you have 1000 Florins and you will get the trophy.
Lightning Strike – Bronze
Sprint for 100 meters.
– Simple. Hold R1 and X and run 100 meters without slowing down.
Sweeper – Bronze
Sweep 5 guards at once by using a Long Weapon.
– To get a Long Weapon you must kill a guard who is holding a large staff. When he is dead pick up his weapon by tapping O. Guards do not go around in groups of more than four so I would advise doing this trophy near a restricted area so that more guards will chase you. While you are holding the staff you cannot run or walk fast so I advise holding R1 to block attacks and walk towards another patrol of guards before attempting to Sweep five. To perform the Sweep attack you must first learn the technique in the training ring in Monterigionni. It costs 10000 Florins. Anyways, once you have a group of guards following you, let them croud round you and hold Square, then release it and Ezio will Sweep guards. You probably won't get this first time so keep trying until you do.
Venetian Gladiator – Bronze
Discover the Assassin's Tomb inside Santa Maria delle Visitazione.
– Find the Assassin's Seal within Visitazione. The tombs are shown on your Map so it will not be hard finding them. I wouldn't recommend using the videos on how to escape the tombs because they are very fun but if you cannot seem to find the way out they will be there anyway.
I can see your house from here! – Bronze
Discover the Assassin's Tomb inside the Torre Grossa.
– Find the Assassin's Seal within Torre Grossa.
Hallowed be thy name – Bronze

– Just complete a race in the time provided. Races are marked on your map as a chequered flag.
Show your Colors – Bronze
Wear the Auditore cape in each city.
– To unlock the Auditore cape you must find and collect all 100 feathers in the game. Once you have all the feathers bring them back to the stronghold and place them in the box for Maria. This will give you the cape. Once you have the cape simply quick travel to each city. You must travel to these cities while wearing the cape: Florence, Monteriggioni, Romagna/Forli, Tuscany and Venice. You must also travel to the mountains south of Forli to get the trophy.
Handy Man – Bronze

– At the beginning of DNA sequence 4 an architect will appear in the Villa. Talk to the architect and make any upgrade
to a building. Once you have done this the trophy will appear.
I like the view – Bronze

Tip of the Iceberg – Bronze
Use your Eagle Vision to scan a Glyph in the enviroment.
– Find a Glyph on a wall, climb up to it and use Eagle Vision to scan it. You don't even have to solve it. See 'Vitruvian Man' for Glyph locations.

1) Is there anywhere you can buy smoke bombs or do you have to loot them off fallen guards?
2) Can you purchase any weapons that are classified as “Long Weapons” or does it have to come from a guard?
