The game has 26 trophies, all of which can be unlocked within a full playthrough and halfway through New Game+
+. Most of the trophies are related to finding various collectibles and weapons in the game as well as fully upgrading weapons and learning all skills. There are no trophies tied to difficulty levels so even those who play the game in the easiest difficulty can unlock the Platinum trophy for this game.
We have completely covered how to find all the collectibles in our online guide as well as dedicated pages on how to unlock the three Secret Trophies
in the game.
Every Last One of Them (Platinum)Collect all trophiesWhat I Had to Do (Gold)Complete the storySurvival Expert (Gold)Learn all player upgrades
During your exploration, you have to pick up and collect Supplements to unlock new skills. There are five skill trees in the game, with five skills under each tree. You have to find their respective Training Manuals to unlock their respective skill trees as well. Please refer to the links below for the location of all Training Manuals.
* Training Manuals Locations (Ellie)
* Training Manuals Locations (Abby)
Take note as well that even if you picked up all available supplements in a single playthrough, you still won't have enough to fully learn all skills for both Ellie and Abby. That's why you still have to play again in New Game+
+ to pick up more supplements and completely learn all skills for both of their skill trees. Just remember, you don't need to completely finish the New Game+ run! You have to keep playing until you learn all skills and upgrade all weapons, which can be done during Abby's Seattle Day 1 chapter.
Arms Master (Gold)Fully upgrade all weapons
Reminder: Supplements will no longer spawn in their preset locations once you have fully upgraded Ellie or Abby.
There are two requirements to complete this trophy. First, you have to find all weapons (Please follow the link below for the complete list of all weapons you can find in the game). Next, after finding all weapons, you have to upgrade them by using Workbenches
and spending Parts. You can find parts while exploring. Like supplements, you won't be able to fully upgrade your weapons in a single playthrough; that's why you still have to play again in New Game+
+ to keep your upgrades and pick up more parts to apply the remaining upgrades. Just remember, you don't need to completely finish the New Game+ run! You have to keep playing until you learn all skills and upgrade all weapons, which can be done during Abby's Seattle Day 1 chapter.
