The Platinum run for Alan Wake 2 will take you between 18 and 27 hours, depending on how efficient you are with collectibles. As you may have noticed, there are many Bronze trophies and only 1 Silver trophy. There are no gold trophies to speak of.

The good news is that you can do it all in a single game. The bad news is that there are a couple of trophies that can be missed: The Koskela brothers and The writer’s trail. This is because you can miss them in the chapters that appear. This is strange because the game is a semi-open world and you can get pretty much all the other collectibles, as long as you get them before you reach the story point right before the climax.

There is 6 commercials from Brother Koskela to see it in total. Commercials only appear for Saga. We don’t know if you need to watch the commercial in its entirety or if the moment you saw it counts. As far as I know, the commercial for Return 1: Invitation may be lost if you decide to leave Bright Falls too soon.

Writer’s Journey videos are Alan’s unique collectible equivalent. Arrive The writer’s trail Bronze trophy, you have to see everything. 8 videos when you find open televisions. As far as we know, there are more than a few errors that you could miss if you just skimmed through the chapters.

Once you have completed the first 5 chapters of the game, you will have the ability to swap stories to advance the story of any of the characters. This is the time when you can unlock the other side Bronze trophy.

Amulets are equippable items that provide benefits to Saga Anderson. They are mainly found after completing the nursery rhyme puzzle locations, of which there are 17 of themand requires you to find 13 dolls of children’s songs to complete. If you manage to find all the dolls, you will unlock the I’ll find you Bronze trophy. Completing all nursery rhyme puzzles will unlock the Change in reality Bronze trophy.

There is 14 unique charms in total but copies of amulets that do the same increase the number to 18. One of them is The beautiful things in life Bronze trophy. You can get this trophy and amulet after petting Mayor Setter. The other amulets are consumable coffee cup amulets that will save you from death but destroy themselves afterwards. You will have to die with one equipped to unlock the Back to life Bronze trophy.

Cult Stash and Lunch Boxes are collectibles that Saga can find throughout the city. There are 43 in total, 22 Cult Stashes and 21 Lunch Boxes. Discovering 1 of each will unlock the secret hiding places Bronze trophy and finding all 43 will unlock the Hidden by the trees trophy. Hideouts are generally worth searching for, as they provide supplies and weapons like the crossbow. Lunchboxes, meanwhile, reward you with Manuscript Fragments that you can use to upgrade Saga weapons.

And my last advice is how to get the Coffee-themed fun Bronze trophy. You can get it at Coffee World, accessible in Return 3: Local Girl. Playing as Saga, you can roam the park looking for a cardboard cutout of Mr. Drippy and his friends. You unlock the trophy by shooting Mr. Dripy or any other cardboard cutout.

And that’s all I have in terms of things you might miss on your way to getting the Platinum trophy for Alan Wake 2. The rest of the trophies are either combat-based or story-related to some degree. You can’t miss them, even if you try. But please don’t tempt fate if it leads to you losing the trophy. Jokes aside, you should be in for a gripping story and an easy Platinum to add to your collection. Have a good time, trophy hunters.
