Stage 2 – Collectibles and Miscellaneous Trophies.
There are a lot of pills to collect in Tapes 1 – 4, as well as in your building. It is recommended to collect them while playing through the respective tape. Some of them will not be accessible if you wait until you have defeated the main enemy in each of these tapes. If you miss any of these pills, you will be able to replay the tape from inside your Office. However, you will have to play the main mission for that tape again until you have collected the missed pills only. Use your Mirror Shard to look for any of these pills as they will be a coral blue color in your Mirror Shard. Inside your building, you will not be able to get access to all pills until you have the proper items to get through blocked areas. Therefore, you can wait until Tape 4 is completed until you begin searching your building for the pills. For all other missed trophies, please see the respective trophy descriptions below.
