Stage 1 – Complete the story
Welcome to this trophy guide for Moss 2, the sequel to the critically acclaimed PS VR game from Polyarc.
The majority of the trophies are story related and will unlock as you progress through the game, therefore your main aim is to complete the story. Additionally there are two types of collectables you need to grab while playing through the story. Relic Dust is found by destroying any boxes, barrels and pots you come across. The other collectible are the Forgotten Fragments there are a total of 48, 8 are found in each realm. Both Relic dust and Forgotten Fragments can be collected on multiple playthroughs or by using the chapter select. Additionally there are three Relic Shrines to enter where you will find the armour.
The three main trophies to work on alongside the story and collectibles are “With Friends Like These” for completing Sahima’s section without dying, “It’s like bubble wrap.” for breaking objects with the reader and “Lawnmower Mouse” for cutting grass with Quill.
There are several combat-related and a couple of miscellaneous trophies, thankfully they are all for performing a single action once and they are all easy to perform so there is no grinding or much skill needed.
Meticulous, punctilious, and scrupulous.
