Learn the Jecht Shot.

TThere are two ways to obtain this trophy. You can either successfully obtain the trophy during the S.S. Winno scene by completing the “Jecht Shot Mini-Game” during the scenes that take place on the ferry or you can head back to the S.S. Winno later on and complete it if you missed it.
