Life is Strange 2 Trophy Guide and Road Map for PlayStation 4

Welcome to our Life is Strange 2 Trophy Guide. Life is Strange 2 is the sequel to the thrilling and emotional rollercoaster that was the original Life is Strange. The story is totally disconnected and so can be enjoyed without playing the original game, but there will be a few sneaky easter eggs and callbacks for fans of the series.

This episodic and story-driven game will see you play the role of Sean, big brother to Daniel. When their goes awry upside down one day, Sean is left trying to fend for himself and his little brother in a long and emotional tale of responsibility and brotherhood which changes based on your decisions and actions throughout the game, resulting in one of 7 varied endings.

Phase One – Complete The Story, Find All Collectibles

During this phase, you simply want to enjoy the story and the consequences of your choices. If you want to go in completely blind, that’s great! You’ll get the most out of the story that way and you’ll be able to properly immerse yourself without worrying about where the collectibles are. Afterward, you could then use Collectible Mode to revisit certain chapters and collect anything you missed.

On the other hand, if you’d prefer to get everything done in one playthrough and not need to do any clean-up afterward, then I recommend following this guide. Below, each collectible-related trophy has guides for when and where to look for collectibles, and I’ve split them up by episode:

If you follow along with those spoiler-free per-collectible guides, you can safely collect everything in a single playthrough.

In each episode you will earn trophies for the following:

  • Completing the Episode
  • Finding Each of the six collectibles in each episode
  • Finding all of the collectibles in each episode
  • Starting a drawing in each episode

Note that the collectible sections below also include instructions for each episode’s drawing opportunity, and I have reshuffled the trophies a little so that they are in chronological order of when you can earn them.

Note that none of the choices you make can lock you out of acquiring collectibles (unless specifically noted in this guide), so you can play the game however you like, just keep an eye out for the collectible locations noted in the guide below.
