In this Bugsnax Trophy roadmap, we're going to tell you how to get the Platinum Trophy in this viral indie title. As part of our main Bugsnax guide, we'll reveal every Trophy along with their descriptions, and some strategies for how to get them.
Note: There may be some Trophies and information listed below that could be considered spoilers. Proceed with caution!
Bugsnax: Trophy Roadmap
Bugsnax isn't a super long game, nor a very hard one, so obtaining the Platinum Trophy isn't too tough. You'll acquire a handful of Trophies simply by progressing through the story, like Everybody Gets One, Gone Home, and Know Thy Neighbor. Some require you to do more specific things, like finding all Lizbert's video diaries, and fully transforming one of the characters. Some food-themed Trophies such as Sundae Best require that you feed a certain combination of Bugsnax to one of the grumpuses, and this can only be done once you discover the right creatures in certain areas of the map. Then there are Trophies for finding and catching all the Bugsnax, solving puzzles, and more.
You're likely to unlock a fair few of the Trophies towards the end of the game, as you slowly complete side quests, capture all the Bugsnax, and reach the finale of the story. The good news is that there are no missable Trophies, and you can get all of them in one playthrough. If you do finish the game before you get all the Trophies, you can load back in and keep going.
If you happen to have Bugsnax on both PS4 and PS5, the Trophy sets are unique for each, so you can technically get two Platinums!
Bugsnax: All Trophies
There are 28 Trophies to collect in Bugsnax. Here's a complete list of every Trophy you'll find in the game, as well as descriptions and some advice for obtaining them. To get the Platinum, you are not required to get the Isle of Bigsnax Trophies. However, we have listed these below as well in their own section.
