Welcome to the trophy guide for Beyond Blue. 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 – Scan everything while completing all dives.

Beyond Blue will have you going on 8 Dives. During each dive it’s highly recommended to scan all the possible fish that you can before starting the tasks in each dive. Your map will display gray dots to indicate fish that you need to scan. After you scan the fish, the gray dot on your map will disappear and this fish will have a white dot on them permanently. These white dots mean that you have scanned the fish and they carry over even if you return later on. Next start the task(s) for the dive, there may be new gray dots that appear on your map. Scan all of these fish before finishing the task(s) objectives as you never know which missions will send you back to the sub. Back on your sub you will be able to interact with the Music Player, Tablet with the Ocean Insight videos, Scan Model Viewer, the Helm, and a few miscellaneous others that aren’t needed. Repeat this method with all of the dives.

~Do not save games while doing objectives. Loading during objectives can cause missions to disappear and leave you unable to progress.
~It is highly recommended to play a dive fully to ensure that your number of scans will coincide with the information noted in each table below. The safest place to save (and to end a gaming session) is when you are back on the sub and have interacted with all necessary items including the helm. This way the next time you play it will be ready for you to dive into the next level.
~Reloading a save during a dive has the potential to reload a fish as “unscanned” and result in extra results i.e. 2/1 Giant Squid, 4/2 Octopus, etc. So when reading the tables below, or looking at the included pictures, your numbers may vary from the wrongly reported fractions.
~Swim around with your Scanner on, remember to turn it back on after going through a cave opening, or doing the tasks in a given dive.
~Dive 6 does not have a map and it is nighttime, so you will need to swim around until you have scanned everything. Do not fret, it is essentially one long tunnel and 95% of the fish are grouped at the very end. If the Vents trophy for scanning has not popped before scanning the whale, then you missed scanning something, likely a Thermal Vent.
~Dives 1, 2, and 7 are all the Atoll dive area.
~Warning: The Octopus found and scanned earlier in Atoll may still have a gray dot that appears on your Map.

Stage 2 – Trophy Cleanup.

After completing all 8 dives, you will unlock Dive Selection that allows you to return to any of the dive locations during the time of day that they occurred. Check your Scan Model Viewer on your Sub to see if you missed scanning any fish. You can then return to that area and check the map (gray dots) to see where the fish are located. As soon as you scan all of the fish that you need in a particular dive area, you can return to your sub. Besides the scanning all fish trophy, every other miscellaneous trophy can be earned on your submarine.
