Of course you’re going to earn Trophies in Death Stranding, but how many are there, and what exactly do you need to do to add them to your collection?

We’ve listed all Death Stranding Trophies in this guide, of which there are 63 in total. The majority of Death Stranding Trophies are rewards for general play, but there are 15 Trophies tied to each of the 15 chapters.

Before you dip into the Trophies, you might want to look at our general tips for Death Stranding to ensure you’re playing efficiently – it’s a long game, somewhere between 40-80 hours, so you should make the most of your time. If you need to drill down on delivering cargo, we have that covered too.

Right, let’s get into it. You’ll meet many weird and wacky characters as you traipse across the United States delivering cargo, and most of them will pop up during a particular chapter.
