Welcome to the trophy guide for Azur Lane: Crosswave. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Story Mode + Starting Affection.


During this stage you want to solely focus on clearing Story Mode up to Final Chapter while scouting characters along the way. To make marrying all the ship girls less of a grind, it is recommended to start switching your fleets and secretary ship every ten battles. Once you have cleared chapter six of the main story you have to reenter to start up the Final Chapter.

Stage 2 – Extreme Battles + Clean Up.


This stage you will be clearing all Extreme Battles while marrying all of the ship girls. If you haven’t started viewing the Character Episodes, you can start doing them now, as they will be small short side stories. At the end of this stage the shiny Platinum will be yours.

 The Azure You Obtained
You’ve completed Azur Lane: Crosswave!

You fought so many battles and made Oaths with all the adorable ship girls. Enjoy your shiny Platinum!


 The One Who Sees All
You’ve viewed all events that can occur in Story Mode!

Story Mode will consist of a total of eight chapters with many events and Event Battles. Red Events will advance the story, so always be on the look out for Green Events first. You will also need to reenter Chapter 4 after completing it to view the other 2 Red Events. Down below is a list of how many events are in each chapter.


 Pledge to the Rose Goddess
You’ve made your first Pledge!

To perform the Pledge with a ship girl, you first have to Awaken them. (Please refer to “Pudding of Congratulations!”) After a ship girl is awoken, their status is able to reach the love effect. To make a ship girl reach it quicker, have them in your fleet constantly, and as your Secretary ship. Once they are in love, you’ll have the option to craft their Promise Ring (located in Research Facility under the Important tab) and then give it to them through their status page.

(Note: The materials to make the Rings can be grinded in Extreme Battle Mode. You can obtain quite a few through Character Episodes as well.)


 “All, Have Assembled”
You’ve seen every character’s Episodes!

There will be a total of 58 Episodes that you must view completely to achieve this trophy. To obtain 57 of the Character Episodes, you have to Scout every single ship girl. The last character episode will unlock when you clear Extreme Battle 100.

(Note: Neptune’s Character Episode is not needed for this trophy).


 Guardian of the Blue Route
You’ve repelled all rival fleets!

The rival fleets in question will be under the Extreme Battles located in the Main Menu. There will be a total of 110 Battles you must clear. Down below is how to unlock all Extreme Battles.

Extreme Battles: 1 – 90 (automatically unlocks as you clear them).
Extreme Battles: 91 – 100 (S Ranks in most of the extreme battles to unlock them).
Extreme Battles: 101 – 110 (Emergency battles that will appear for a short while then disappear. They will reappear at random).


 Collector of Paradise
You’ve completed the Gallery Mode!

The gallery will have three sections which you will need to have completely filled: Memory (Events), Illustration (CGs), and Sound (BGMs). You will need to fully clear Story Mode, Oath every ship girl (Main + Support), and view all Character Episodes (this also includes the one locked in Extreme Battle 100).


 “Pudding of Congratulations!”
You’ve succeeded in Cognition Awakening!

To Awaken a ship girl, you must first meet two conditions: All story battles must be S ranked (not including Final Chapter) and the ship girl must be at Level 100. After you meet these two conditions, you need to gather materials to make a Cognitive Chip (located in Research Facility under the Important tab) related to the ship girl. Once crafted, head to the Dock and open the Status screen for the ship girl you wish to awaken. You will see the triangle button over the EXP bar at the top. The trophy will pop after getting the notification of them awakening.

(Note: The materials to make the Chips can be grinded in Story Mode battles)
