Introduction:

This is the perfect game for trophy lovers. As with most open-world games, trophies in HZD focus on the overall completion of the game. You must complete the story, complete side missions to unlock optional allies, and find several types of collectibles. Luckily you can buy maps from vendors that show the location of the items. There is not much to collect and the collected items can be exchanged for some nice in-game rewards from the corresponding merchants in Meridian city. One of the best items of equipment is the shield weaver armor, which absorbs all damage and makes you invulnerable. Try to get it as early as possible and find 5 fuel cells when you complete story tasks Got the Shield-Weaver outfit. In General, the trophies in the game are quite easy. Even tests on hunting grounds are quite feasible. If you have any problems with anything, come back later when you're swaying. After completing the story, you will still be able to move around the game world to collect collectibles and side activities.


Step 1: go through the story to the task “Facing death”, collect 5 fuel cells

In the first step, you must complete the story to the main task “Facing death". This is the final story quest. Don't start it yet. This is important because you need to get the “All allies joined" trophy. To get all optional allies to join the final battle, you must complete certain side quests (see the “All allies joined” trophy). Only after getting all the optional allies should you start the last quest. If you have already completed the last mission, you can replay it at any time, and therefore get a trophy after the story. In addition, your choices in dialogues do not matter, since they do not affect relations with allies in any way.

Complete the main tasks and collect 5 fuel cells. Four of them are located in the locations of story tasks. You can return at any time to collect them, even after the story ends. It will save you a little time if you get them as soon as possible. This is required for the "Got the Shield-Weaver outfit" trophy. You will get armor that will make you invincible. The sooner you get it, the better.

Collect all the collectibles that you come across, and don't hesitate to take part in any side activities, such as cauldrons or clearing bandit camps. Play the game the way you want.

Step 2: Get all optional allies, collect collectibles, and complete all side activities

Before completing the main quest "Facing death", complete and complete all 11 side quests required for the “All allies joined" trophy. Your responses in dialogs do not affect your allies. Also collect all the collectibles, clear all the bandit camps, and complete the remaining side activities.

Step 3: Complete the story

Now that you've completed side quests for all your allies, it's time to finish the final story mission. This way you will get the remaining trophies and platinum.

If you forgot to do something, you can do it after the story.
