Best way to do this is to play the game for the story and then collect everything. Although, it is possible to find everything in your first run if you're used to ND games. Act 1
These are easily done before Downtown Seattle. For Tinkerer, it's a case of getting at least 40 parts together and finding a workbench to upgrade Ellie's pistol. Apprentice is as easy as finding Supplements, normally found in Kitchens, Bathrooms and safes, and upgrading Ellie's health before reaching Downtown Seattle on say one.Now for Downtown itself:
You'll want to explore everything for the platinum. However, your first stop should be the bank on the left hand side of the entrance in to the map.
In the vault (the combination is on a bank robber in the room with the door in it)
In a lockbox on your right will be an artefact which will earn you
During this section you should also get
if you've been exploring every hidey hole, drawer etc. I mean from part one you should be used to this.
Exploring all locations will net youHeading to a flashback
Before heading towards Ellie's birthday surprise, you should also have
If you focused on one weapon and one skill tree at a time.
During this chapter however:
your last trophy with Ellie should be Act 2
Now for the slightly less interesting part of the story.
In this act you'll have an unique collectible
this first trophy should be done BEFORE leaving the stadium. Save after picking up Alice from the pound as the last one is actually pretty easy to miss and if you go too far you'll have to collect them all on NG+.Chapter one misceleaneous
When you get the keys to the van turn 180° and enter the shooting range to complete the challenge.Hostile Territory
is the second unique collectible, like Ellie's it's well placed.
You should also have
by the chapter with Abby and Owen in the Aquarium during winter.Winter visit
The second challenge trophy is during a mini chapter
by the end of the next chapter you should have found all the training manuals. Make sure you have all of these before starting NG+ otherwise you'll make more of a task for yourself than you need to.
should be yoi last four trophies on this run.
Anything that is missing can be done by chapter select.
In order to do this effectively. You can save at the resort after dealing with all the slavers and continue on to gain
Reload this game save after completing it and then back out. You must reload this save everytime you chapter select find the collectible you'e missing and after saving to make sure it counts, reload the resort save.
You can also do this with
as I had too, or any of the collectible trophies in the game.
Once all this is done it's time for NG+.New game +

Should be the only two left, there five skill trees between both Ellie and Abby and five skills in each tree. You need all.of them, by the time you reach The forrest, you shoild be able to get the trophy.
Weapons are easier and we shoild have it at the On foot section.Powerpyx clean up guide
