The Last of Us Part 2 Trophy guide and roadmap

We can help you get that Platinum Trophy you're after.

The Last of Us Part 2 is out now and this Trophy guide and roadmap will detail what’s required to achieve its coveted Platinum Trophy.


  • Estimated Trophy difficulty: 3/10
  • Approximate amount of time to Platinum: 20-25 hours with guides, 30+ hours otherwise
  • Offline Trophies: 26 (1 Platinum, 7 Gold, 8 Silver, 10 Bronze)
  • Online Trophies: 0
  • Number of missable Trophies: 0
  • Glitched Trophies: 0
  • Does difficulty affect Trophies? No
  • Minimum playthroughs: 1 full, plus a 2nd partial playthrough


Welcome to The Last of Us Part 2! You’ll definitely need to play this game into a second playthrough, so it’s up to you if you’d like to crank up (or down) the difficulty on your first go.

Most Trophies are related to upgrades and collectibles, though some hidden Trophies require you to complete mini-games. You can choose to focus on the collectibles and hidden Trophies in your first playthrough or leave them until your second, but always be mindful of scavenging for supplements and weapon parts to upgrade yourself and your weaponry. The second playthrough is required because there aren’t enough supplements and upgrades to fully upgrade everything on the first go.

Collectibles can be found using a Chapter select as well, so keep that in mind.
