Welcome to the trophy guide for The Survivalists. 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.

Welcome to The Survivalists! The Survivalists is a survival game where you complete tasks and quests to eventually escape your shipwreck. The map of your own game will be randomly generated and it will have a unique layout of the islands and locations for your playthrough. However, everyone will have the same basic elements and gameplay.

Stage 1 – Play the entire game until you almost escape on the Galleon.


Play through the tutorial of the game to learn the ‘how to’ for the game. Unlock the Crafting Menus as soon as possible. Move around your island to harvest and discover new resources, weapons, money, and monkeys. Monkeys will want a certain item, provide it to them, and you will now have that monkey to use the entire game. Eventually you will max out around 25 monkeys. Train monkeys to craft items, gather resources, hunt animals, and defeat enemies in battles. Construct crates to be able to increase the amount of inventory you can have and gather with you at one time. Construct the raft, take monkeys, sparse resources and weapons with you as you start to explore the map to discover new islands. Find the Mysterious Stranger who has unique quests, rare items, Labyrinth Keys, and Treasure Maps. You will be able to gather new resources to make new items and discover the locations of the four labyrinths that contain elemental weapons and special items needed to escape on the Galleon. Before you finalize the Galleon, earn all the online trophies.

Stage 2 – Complete the Online Trophies.


After you have started rebuilding the Galleon, complete the online trophies and every time that you join someone else’s game, if they have unlocked different elemental weapons than you, you will earn the ones that they have unlocked, too. You can join or host online sessions to earn these trophies.

Stage 3 – Escape on the Galleon.


Finish any miscellaneous trophies, complete the rebuilding the Galleon, and escape on it.

Trophies


 The Completionists!
Get all other Trophies.

Unlock all other trophies. Congratulations on surviving your monkey journey!


 It’s Elementary!
Collect all elemental weapons.

There are 8 Elemental Weapons, with one being available in each of the 4 Labyrinths that you have available in your game. In one full playthrough you will only be able to get 4 of the Elemental Weapons from your Labyrinths. However, since you will have to play online to earn all trophies, join other players’ game sessions and you will unlock the Elemental Weapons that they have unlocked too. Therefore, find and play as many online games as you need and in no time you will earn all the Elemental Weapons. See the pictures below.


 The Real Escapist
Escape in the galleon.

The Galleon will be randomly placed on your own Map, however, if it is probably near the center area of your Map, you will have to fix it. There are many levels of building that need to be accomplished. It is most efficient to work on the Galleon as you sometimes need to travel past its location to another area on your Map.

The levels of rebuilding are:
Level 1: 80x Wooden Slats, 30x Metal Nails.
Level 2: 10x Wooden Slats, 5x Metal Nails, 2x Metal Hinges.
Level 3: 30x Wooden Slats, 15x Golden Nails.
Level 4: 5x Wooden Rods, 5x Metal Nails, 3x Sails.
Level 5: 8x Wooden Rods, 5x Metal Nails, 4x Sails.
Level 6: 8x Wooden Rods, 5x Metal Nails, 4x Sails.
Level 7: 45x Ropes.
Level 8: The Key to Escape: Monkey Figurehead.
Level 9: The Key to Escape: Galleon’s Wheel.
Level 10: The Key to Escape: Compass.
Level 11: The Key to Escape: Story Map.

After the final level of building is completed, you will be able to Escape. This will lead to the conclusion of the game, however, you will be directly back at this location post game to finish off any other trophies if needed. See the pictures below.
