Cosmos Bit Trophy Guide and Road Map for PlayStation 4 & PlayStation 5
Welcome to our Cosmos Bit Trophy Guide. Cosmos Bit is a clear homage to the original Metroid games, but there are a few small upgrades that change the experience slightly. For example, you can collect and farm small pellets by blowing up rocks, which you can then use to upgrade your character at Save Stations throughout the game.
There’s also a mild Souls-like element to the game in that you cannot heal between Save Stations and will need to survive until the next one in order to retain your progress.
In terms of the trophy journey, this is a Ratalaika release so, naturally, you’re looking at a fairly simple affair and won’t need to complete the game fully. At the very least you will need to defeat just three of the game’s bosses and collect a few items and power-ups used to progress. Nothing is missable or particularly challenging.
Phase One – Reach and Defeat Three Bosses then Collect the ID Card
During this phase of our Cosmos Bit Trophy Guide, you just need to focus on playing the game and making progress. As stated earlier, you won’t need to finish the game, but you will need to complete about 75% of it. That being said, the game is fairly short and it should only take you about 2 hours to reach and collect the ID Card.
I’ve re-ordered the trophies into chronological order, so just follow along below.
Note that if you want to get the Platinum trophy as quickly as possible, I recommend killing every enemy you see until you unlock Alien Smasher, otherwise you’ll need to farm a few kills post-game.
Cosmos Bit Progression Trophies
Find the map object.
Play through the first linear section of the game, being careful not to get killed, and you’ll eventually come to your first unlocked door. Head inside to find a room which contains a save pod in the upper-right, and the Map item in the lower-right.
Walk into the Map to receive the “Satellite Navigator,” which will allow you to view the map by pressing . The Satellite Navigator trophy will then unlock immediately.
Find the first enhancement for the main weapon.
The first weapon enhancement can be found in this room on the map:
Inside, you will find a pipe that spits out fly-like alien enemies and a locked room on the far right. To unlock the room, you will need to kill 10 of these fly-like alien enemies (you should have done this once already to reach the room) to fill up the counter on the wall in the locked room.
Once 10 of the aliens have been killed, the door to the locked room will unlock and you can go inside to pick up the Power Up, making your standard shot much stronger and able to kill enemies in less hits.
Defeat the first boss.
The first Boss in Cosmos Bit can be found here on the map:
You will first need to acquire the first weapon enhancement in order to reach it (see Power Up!). The boss fight is fairly easy and won’t take too many shots.
You essentially just want to hold and to shoot up at the boss, while running slightly ahead of it as it strafes left and right. Avoid getting directly under it or its shotgun blasts of projectiles will hit you.
Once it dies, the First Encounter trophy will unlock.
Find the jet-pack object.
After you have defeated the first boss and unlocked the First Encounter trophy, look on the far-left side of the boss room to find a previously-locked room. Inside, you will see the Jet-Pack.
Walk over it to collect it and the Jet-Pack trophy will unlock.
Defeat the second boss.
The second boss in Cosmos Bit can be found here on the map:
This second boss fight is a lot like the first one, and the strategy remains the same; strafe with the boss while holding and to pepper it with gunfire.
This boss’ projectiles are a lot easier to avoid, due to the large gaps between each of them. The only other thing to look out for is the fact that the boss sometimes will drop down onto you from above. Avoid getting directly under the boss, though, and you should be fine.
When it drops down is actually a good opportunity to press + to throw a bomb at it for big damage.
Defeat this second boss to keep progressing the game and unlock the Second Encounter trophy.
Find the secondary weapon.
The Sonic-Boom is the Cosmos Bit equivalent to Metroid’s Missile; a more powerful yet limited secondary shot. You can press to fire the sonic boom but it then needs to recharge.
You can retrieve it from the locked room left of the Second Boss after you’ve defeated it and unlocked the Second Encounter trophy.
Jump up to touch it, collecting it and unlocking the Sonic Boom trophy.
Defeat the third boss.
The third boss in Cosmos Bit can be found here on the map:
This is arguably a lot more difficult than the other bosses due to the limited surface area and the hazards on the ground, but I found that if you stand in the bottom-right corner his projectiles won’t go near you very often.
You can then use Sonic-Boom and Alien Bomb weapons to deal massive damage to the boss at every opportunity until you defeat it, unlocking the Third Encounter trophy.
Find the second enhancement for the main weapon.
After you have defeated the third boss and unlocked the Third Encounter trophy, look for the second weapon enhancement inside the previously-locked room in the bottom-left corner of the boss fight area.
Enter the room and touch the power-up to collect it, unlocking the More Power! trophy.
Find the ID Card object.
This is the furthest point you will need to reach in the story before you can earn the platinum and have the option to stop playing if you don’t wish to finish the game.
After you’ve collected the second weapon upgrade and unlocked “More Power!,” continue upwards using the power-up to progress into this room on the map:
Inside, you’ll find the ID Card item. Walk into it to pick it up and unlock the ID Card trophy.
Phase Two – Defeat 150 Aliens
There’s a strong likelihood that you have already killed the 150 Aliens required for the Alien Smasher trophy (especially if you followed our earlier advice) but just in case you haven’t done so yet, this second phase of our Cosmos Bit Trophy Guide is dedicated to mopping up any kills you still need.
You can easily farm kills by entering and leaving an area, causing the enemies to respawn.
Cosmos Bit Alien Kill Trophies
Kill 50 alien enemies.
The Alien Killer trophy will unlock once you kill your first 50 aliens. See Alien Smasher for more info.
Kill 100 alien enemies.
The Alien Destroyer trophy will unlock once you kill your first 100 aliens. See Alien Smasher for more info.
Kill 150 alien enemies.
The Alien Smasher trophy will unlock once you kill your first 150 aliens. This trophy and all other Alien Kill trophies should, frankly, unlock naturally throughout the game if you take the time to kill every alien you come across.
If any of these trophies do not unlock naturally, however, they’re very easy to farm. Any time you leave and enter a room in the game, the aliens inside will respawn, so you can simply walk in and out of any monster-filled room and farm kills that way.
Get all other trophies
Once you have acquired every other trophy in this Cosmos Bit Trophy Guide, the “Platinum Cosmos” platinum trophy will unlock.
