Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide and Road Map for PlayStation 4
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger was a huge part of my life growing up, while everyone else had Crash, Sonic, or whatever else, I was obsessed with this goofy little Australian feller. After excitedly creating the very first Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Trophy Guide, I’m even more excited to bring you this Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide, with which you’ll be able to complete all trophies and earn the platinum!
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 HD Trophy Guide: Before You Begin
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 HD PS4 Cheat Codes
You can use cheats in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 HD for PlayStation 4 but you will risk voiding trophies if you do. Most trophies are not void if you use cheats, you can still get all boss and level completion trophies, the 100% completion trophy, and all trophies for purchasable items (provided you actually purchase them) but you can’t unlock the ‘rang trophies using the unlock all rang cheats, the same goes for Bunyip Keys.
You will void the 200,000 opal trophy by using the opal cheat, but you can use those opals to buy ‘rangs and Bunyip Keys for the relevant trophies no problem.
The biggest issue is that if you use any cheat (except the Camerang cheat) all collectible trophies will become instantly void. You wouldn’t even find out until you’re at least 60-70% of the way to game completion.
Long story short; avoid using cheats. There’s some complexity to the system that means you ight be able to leverage cheats to your advantage in some way, but it isn’t worth it.
You’ll eventually need to buy every boomerang in the game if you want to earn the platinum, but it helps to know which ones you are going to need the most.
Obviously there will be times when you need to melt some ice with a Flamerang or create an ice platform with a Frostyrang, but those familiar with Ty the Tasmanian Tiger may be surprised to realise how little those rangs are actually needed. To help you get a head start on your playthrough, I’ll recommend a few to prioritise.
The first one you want to buy is the Infrarang. It will benefit you greatly to always be using it to scan around in the early game to look for invisible boxes that might be hiding picture frames, but there’s also some Frillnecks in Disguise to look for as one of the collectibles and you can’t even start looking for them without first owning the Infrarang.
The Infrarang also highlights collectibles, key items, and switches which will all help you in the long run when it comes to spotting secrets and solving puzzles.
Next up I recommend the Smasharang, a powerful boomerang capable of breaking open metal boxes and glowing rocks, giving you more access to secrets and collectibles early on.
And the final basic boomerang I recommend getting as soon as you can is the Lasharang, with it you can grapple and swing from floating/hanging hoops in various levels, again, giving you access to collectibles.
If you explore and complete enough missions at the start of the game you can have all three of the above ‘rangs before even leaving Burramudgee.
Once you gain access to Sly’s shop, you should prioritise getting the Xrang and the Warparang. The Xrang does everything the Infrarang does, but it does so passively. Allowing you to see (and hear) nearby secrets without even needing to scan.
The Warperang is a suped-up version of the Lasharang, except it will allow you to grapple onto purple crystals and access secret areas.
You might also like to grab the Omegarang from Sly as a priority too as it’s the most OP weapon in the game. Sure, the Kaboomerang is a portable mini-nuke but it’s slow compared to the absolute beatdown the Omegarang delivers.
Once you’ve stocked up on the above priority rangs, then and only then would I recommend buying any others.
Phase One – Finish the Game
For this first phase of our Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide, you just want to focus on beating the story. Along the way, you will want to gather as many collectibles as you can, but your main focus should be Opals, with which you can buy Boomerangs and Bunyip Keys essential for making progress.
Keep a keen eye out for Krome Opals as these can be used later to purchase maps from Madame Mopoke which will show you the locations of all Steve Encounters, Bilbies, and Silver Cogs.
I will leave it up to you whether you want to complete all other missions before the final story mission, we’ll come back for those during phase two of this Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide anyway.
There is one mission you will definitely be completing and that is the Oil Rig Fire mission. Keep an eye out for this mission and be sure not to miss the Oils Well That Ends Well trophy there. This is the only potentially missable trophy so do keep your eye out and make sure you don’t miss it.
There are a fair few trophies you will earn in this phase of our Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide which simply require you to finish a level or defeat a boss, these trophies cannot be missed and as long as you are making progress then you’ll earn them:
Complete the Currawong Prison Level
Patch It Up
Complete the game
There is just one missable trophy in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2, and considering you can’t complete the game without going through the relevant level, I strongly suggest you check out the trophy below and keep an eye out for the Oil Rig stage so that you can’t miss it.
Oils Well That Ends Well
Put out the fires on the oil rig
Continue completing missions until you get a mission at the Oil Rig titled “Oil Rig Fire.” You won’t be able to start this mission until you have the Thermo Bunyip Key from Trader Bob’s Store.
Once all requirements are met, make a backup save via the pause menu’s “Save Game” option and then head to the Oil Rig and begin the mission. You will eventually reach the Thermo Bunyip which you can enter by hitting .
You will need to make your way to the end of the level while also ensuring that you do not miss any fires. There are some small fires wrapped around pipes that cannot be extinguished but, other than that, you will need to extinguish every fire on the rig.
If you successfully reach the end of the mission without missing any fires, the trophy will unlock when the cutscene plays at the end of the mission.
If the trophy does not unlock and you missed some fires, you should load your backup save from before starting the mission as it cannot be re-attempted. Returning to the Oil Rig will just replay the Buster Nanobots Boss Fight.
Phase Two – 100% Completion
After finishing the game, you should have a better understanding of how the game works, plenty of Opals, a good head-start on collectibles, and be somewhat familiar with the map.
Now, you can see your total completion on the Totals tab in the / pause menu, we need to get this up to 100% to unlock Everything and the Kitchen Sink.
Throughout this phase of our Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide, you will also be wanting to unlock these two miscellaneous trophies if you didn’t achieve them in your initial playthrough.
The below trophies in this portion of our Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide all require you to collect, purchase, or complete various things in order to slowly bring your completion up to 100% at which point you can earn this trophy:
Everything and the Kitchen Sink
Finish the game to 100% complete
Provided you unlock every other trophy in this phase of our Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Trophy Guide, you should unlock this trophy naturally.
It involves completing the following objectives:
- Collect all Bilbies (See You Have A Friend In Me)
- Defeat all Disguised Frills (See Fully Koalafied)
- Find all Steve Encounters (See Falterdan!)
- Collect all Picture Frames (See Photo Booth)
- Collect all Silver Cogs (See Silence Is Golden But Cogs Are Silver)
- Collect all Kromium Orbs (See Into Orb-it)
- Purchase all Boomerangs (See I Need Rangs! and All The Rangs!)
- Purchase all Bunyip Keys (See Keymaster)
- Complete all Missions (See Bush Rescue Out of Order)
- Finish all Races (See Burramudgee GraffiTY)
Do all of that, and this trophy is yours.
Nice Guys DON’T Finish Last
Finish any race in first place.
Finish in first place in all races.
You will find Cart Racing missions at racing flag icons on the map when you’re exploring the outback in the Fourbie (pick-up truck). You will need to visit all Seven racing flag icons and finish the races at each location in first place.
After your first first-place victory in a cart race, “Nice Guys DON’T Finish Last” will unlock. Once you’ve had a total of seven first-position wins at all seven locations, “Burramudgee GraffiTY” will unlock.
These races aren’t very difficult. You can damn-near guarantee you will finish in first place by using shortcuts. Almost every course has at least one shortcut and by identifying where they are and making use of them you will be sure to get ahead of the opponents.
When you have finished a race in first place, the racing flag icon for that course will change to a gold trophy icon.
If you have won every race but the trophy does not unlock, return to the main menu and open “Extras.” The trophy should unlock when the Extras menu opens. If it still doesn’t, open the “Leaderboards” option and the trophy will unlock then.
Collect a total of 200,000 opals.
This trophy is cumulative so don’t worry about needing to hold 200,000 opals all at once, you’re free to spend them as you like. In fact, in order to purchase every single boomerang for I Need Rangs! and All The Rangs! you will need well over 300,000 opals, so this trophy is pretty much guaranteed.
Given how many opportunities for opals there are in the game, it’s likely you will earn this naturally unless you’ve been ignoring all them for your entire playthrough. Not to worry, opals can be found everywhere. Opals respawn in all locations and you can farm a lot of opals by defeating enemies, who also respawn. Be sure to try and avoid any grind, though, by just making sure you collect your spoils while you play.
Once you’ve collected a cumulative total of 200,000 opals throughout your time playing Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2, this trophy will unlock.
As a reminder, using the cheat to give you 100,000 opals will void this trophy and certainly won’t help towards it.
I Need Rangs!
Buy all the rangs from the Rang Shop.
The Rang Shop is found in Burramudgee Town, it’s straight ahead of you when you exit the tunnel leading from Bush Rescue HQ. Inside, you can purchase boomerangs from Ty’s parents. There are 8 in total to purchase and you will need to buy them all in order to unlock this trophy.
Below you can find a full list of each rang and their Opal cost:
All The Rangs!
Buy all the rangs from Sly’s Shack.
Sly’s Shack is found later in the game and contains upgraded versions of each boomerang. For example, the Xrang is an upgraded version of the Infrarang.
Look for Sly’s Shop in the southeast region of the open-world “Southern Rivers” map, at the shop icon near a race. There, you’ll find a tall rock formation with platforms all around the outside of it. Use the platforms to reach the peak, where Sly’s Shop awaits.
To unlock this trophy you will need to purchase all 11 of the rangs Sly sells.
The below table lists each rang their Opal cost:
|Doomerang (requires Deadlyrang)||75,000|
Buy all the bunyip licenses.
If you head north from the ‘Rang Shop in Burramudgee Town, you’ll be facing Trader Bob’s store. In there, you can purchase various random items, but the things to focus on for this trophy are the Bunyip Keys. There are three Bunyip Keys in total and they all cost 5,000 Opals.
They will give you access to various Bunyip Mechs, crucial for various missions that cannot be completed without them. To unlock this trophy, you will need to purchase all three keys. The trophy will then unlock immediately.
Find, and listen to, Steve in all his locations.
Steve is a strange caveman/dinosaur hybrid wanderer who shows up in various places throughout the game. If you find and speak to him, he will give you a hefty sum of Opals.
You can purchase a “Mysterious Anomales” map from Madame Mopoke for 10 Kromium Orbs which will show you Steve’s location on the minimap when the Infrarang or Xrang are equipped. I don’t recommend trying to earn this trophy without it, but do keep an eye out for him as you make your way through the game. Use and to zoom in/out on the map.
If you skip his dialogue with , he won’t give you any Opals and he’ll stay where he is. Make sure you listen to all of his dialogue, that way when he leaves, you know you’ve collected this encounter for the trophy.
Here’s a table showing the distribution of Steve Encounters throughout the game’s levels:
|The Never Never||1|
|Frill Neck Forest||0|
Once you’ve witnessed all 10 of Steve’s encounters, the trophy will unlock!
You Have A Friend In Me
Find all the Bilbies.
There are just 30 Bilbies to find in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2, but they can be incredibly difficult to spot. Their colour is subtle, they don’t make a distinct sound like they used to, and they’re often hidden in very inconspicuous locations.
Fortunately, you can purchase a “Missing Persons” map from Madame Mopoke for 10 Kromium Orbs which will show you Bilby locations on the minimap when the Infrarang or Xrang is equipped. Use and to zoom in/out on the map.
Here’s a table showing the distribution of Bilby collectibles throughout the game’s levels:
|Level||No. of Bilbies|
|The Never Never||4|
|Frill Neck Forest||2|
Find all 30 Bilbies and this trophy will unlock.
Find all the picture frames.
Picture Frames are a type of collectible which unlock Concept Art in the Extras menu when collected. There are 175 of them in the game and they’re much easier to find than they were in the prequel to this game.
Fortunately, a huge chunk of the picture frames are found in Burramudgee, within the sewers and at the Bush Rescue HQ. The rest are distributed rather manageably across the other levels.
I strongly recommend that you have the Xrang with you when looking for picture frames as they are commonly found inside invisible boxes. Having the Xrang equipped will make these boxes visible and also make a sound when one is near.
Here’s a table showing the distribution of Picture Frame collectibles throughout the game’s levels:
|Level||No. of Picture Frames|
|The Never Never||30|
|Frill Neck Forest||15|
Find all 175 Picture Frames and this trophy will unlock.
Silence Is Golden But Cogs Are Silver
Find all the cogs.
Cogs are back, but this time they’re silver! The game’s 50 Cogs can be found all over the map and are no longer tied to completing objectives. Keep your eye out for puzzles to complete and secret hidden locations to keep your cog collection growing.
To make things easier, you can purchase a “Cog Map” from Madame Mopoke for 10 Kromium Orbs which will show you Silver Cog locations on the minimap when Infrarang or Xrang are equipped. Use and to zoom in/out on the map.
Here’s a table showing the distribution of Cog collectibles throughout the game’s levels:
|Level||No. of Cogs|
|The Never Never||16|
|Frill Neck Forest||1|
Collect all 50 Cogs to unlock this trophy! You should then take them to Trader Bob’s in Burramudgee to purchase all Ty and Fourbie Skins for Skinny Dipper.
Buy ALL the skins for TY and the Fourbie, from Trader Bob.
Head north from the ‘Rang Shop in Burramudgee Town and you’ll be facing Trader Bob’s store. In there, you can purchase various random items, but for this trophy you’re going to need to buy all of the various Skins for Ty and the Fourbie (4×4 Jeep).
To purchase these skins you will need Silver Cogs. In fact, you will need all of the Silver Cogs if you intend to purchase every skin, which you will need to do if you hope to unlock this trophy.
Once you have unlocked the trophy Silence Is Golden But Cogs Are Silver, head to Trader Bob’s store and spend those hard-earned cogs on some new skins!
Once you own every skin that Bob sells, the trophy will unlock.
Find all the Kromium Orbs.
There are just 30 of these Kromium Orb collectibles in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2. They are pretty well-hidden making them difficult to find. Given that there’s no Mopoke Map for these collectibles they could be considered one of the hardest collectibles to find, but as long as you keep an eye on your totals trackers and ensure you’re fully exploring every location you will find that finding them all isn’t as daunting as it seems.
One bit of advice I have would be to thoroughly check the Southern Rivers map as that’s the only place I struggled to locate them. You can find the five Southern Rivers Kromium Orbs at; Sly’s Shack, The Sulphur Rocks Entrance, Underwater on the East side of Wobbygon Bay, Underwater on the West side of Wobbygon bay, and on a platform you need the Warperang to reach outside the Dennis Freeway mission.
Here’s a table showing the distribution of Kromium Orb collectibles throughout the game’s levels:
|Level||No. of Orbs|
|The Never Never||7|
|Frill Neck Forest||1|
Find all 30 Kromium Orbs to unlock this trophy. You should then take them to Madame Mopoke’s caravan in Burramudgee Town to purchase all of the maps for Cryptocartographer.
Buy all the maps from Madame Mopoke.
Madame Mopoke sells three maps, each costing 10 Kromium Orbs. When you purchase one of her three maps, they will add the ability to display certain collectibles on the mini-map while the Infrarang or Xrang is equipped. There are maps available for Steve encounters, Silver Cog locations, and Bilby locations.
If you hit or a few times you can make the mini-map large so that you can see these things clearer.
Madame Mopoke is found in a caravan tucked away in the south-west corner of Burramudgee Town.
To unlock this trophy, you will need to purchase all of the maps, which isn’t possible of course without first collecting a total of 30 Kromium Orbs (you will be doing this anyway for Into Orb-It). Then purchase all three maps for the trophy to unlock.
Find all the disguised Frills
To unlock this trophy, you need to first complete a specific mission. To complete it, you will need the Infrarang (or Xrang).
When in Burramudgee Town and equipped with an Infrarang, speak to the Koala Police Officer at the top of the stairs north of the Rang Shop (above Trader Bob’s shop).
When you do, he will explain that some Frillnecks have been disguising themselves as Koalas! Use the Infrarang to identify the Frillneck in disguise and then take care of him. He’s in the group of worker koala’s next to Dennis’ house in the northwest corner.
Once you’ve defeated the Frillneck speak to the Police Officer again to hand in the quest and then go speak to Ranger Ken, next to the Sewer entrance. If you haven’t done the crocodile mission in the sewers yet do that first and then speak to Ken again. He’ll tell you that the spy we took out wasn’t the only one to be found.
There are 25 Frills-in-disguise to find throughout the game and you can use the collectibles screen (Opal icon) in the game’s pause menu / to check how many there are in each of the game’s locations.
Here’s a table showing the distribution of Disguised Frill collectibles throughout the game’s levels:
|Level||No. of Frills|
|The Never Never||3|
|Frill Neck Forest||1|
They are always disguised as builder koalas with little yellow hard hats on, so scan every one you come across with the Infrarang. If you have the X-Rang then they will be revealed just by getting close to them with the rang equipped, no scanning necessary.
Bush Rescue Out Of Order
Complete all the missions.
There are a total of 44 missions in the game, which will be slowly revealed as you progress. Completing missions will free up space for more missions to appear, and progressing the story will unlock additional mission pools.
You can find the currently active missions in the “Callsheet” tab of the / pause menu.
Missions are found at star-shaped icons on the map which will turn into hollowed grey stars when complete. Some side-activities also count as missions, such as Julius’ three Training Ground missions which can be found at translucent white star icons and do not change to hollowed star icons when completed.
You shouldn’t have any trouble finding and completing all 44 missions, considering they are marked on the map very clearly. However, if you reach a point where there are no stars on the map and yet you don’t have 44/44 missions on your Totals Tracker, then you should consider visiting each level to see if you can find any translucent white star icons.
When all 44 missions have been completed, this trophy is yours.
Complete all the Birrel and Squeaver missions.
Birrel and Squeaver are an acting duo composed of, you guessed it, a Squirrel and a Beaver. They’re always accompanied by their director too, a Fox.
You’ll often find Birrel and Squeaver at star-shaped mission markers on the map. As long as you’re taking the time to complete every mission for Bush Rescue Out of Order and Everything and the Kitchen Sink, then this trophy is guaranteed.
Once all three Birrel and Squeaver missions have been completed, this trophy will unlock.
The two trophies in the below portion of our Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 Trophy Guide are not tied to the game’s completion percentage at all, and are just random objectives you can complete as soon as the relevant locations are accessible.
A Hundred Percent True
Listen to all of Lenny’s true stories.
Lenny the Lyrebird is a returning character from the first game in the Ty the Tasmanian Tiger series. He can be found in Burramudgie, at the side of the road south of the Rang Shop. He’s surrounded by a group of Koala Kids intently listening to his stories.
When you approach Lenny, a “!” prompt will appear, indicating that you can press to hear one of his “true” stories. You will need to repeat this, and listen to each of the stories, until you’ve heard them all and the trophy unlocks. His final story begins with the line “You may be wondering how I know so much…” and the trophy should unlock as he says it.
We’re in the Money
Collect the hidden 10000 opal bag.
During the final level “Cass’ Run,” which can be replayed at any time via the aircraft at the Bush Rescue HQ in Burramudgee, you will eventually need to fight two of the game’s bosses a second time in a large open area. Once the bosses are defeated, look for a cave blocked by a metal door on the east side of the area.
Above it, there’s a switch with a target on it. Aim at it by holding down and then shoot it with . This will activate four more switches in the area which will be shown to you briefly. Find and hit all four before the invisible timer ends and the cave will open. If you’re not fast enough, just hit the first switch again for a second chance.
Once the cave is open, head inside and follow the linear path to a very normal-looking grey Opal bag. Collect it to receive 10,000 Opals and this trophy!
