The Last of Us 2: Are There Any Missable Trophies?
Technically you can unlock all of The Last of Us 2’s Trophies in a single playthrough, but you’ll need to get all of the collectibles and ensure you find enough spare parts and supplements to purchase all the weapon upgrades and learn all the player upgrades. More realistically, you’ll need to take advantage of New Game + to do this. You can find out what items carry across to New Game + through the following link: The Last of Us 2: Does It Have New Game+?
The Last of Us 2 does have chapter select, but if you choose to replay a chapter earlier in the game, you won’t be able to revisit any of the ones after it – unless you load a different save. This makes hunting for any outstanding collectibles awkward, so ensure you have a good guide ready before you start playing. May we recommend our own The Last of Us 2 guide?

It should be noted that v1.05 adds two new Trophies to the game for completing it on Grounded and with Permadeath enabled. However, while these can be obtained in a single punishing playthrough, you don't need to complete them in order to unlock the Platinum as they're considered separate, DLC Trophies.
