Stray – Achievement And Trophy Guide
Stray is a short but highly detailed game where you play as a cat in a cyber city. It’s a short but wonderful game, but even within the 2-hour runtime, there are 25 trophies to collect, earning you that coveted platinum trophy. You’ll get some of the trophies during your normal run but there are a few hidden ones you’ll likely need to go back for. In this guide, we’ll help you get 100% achievements.
All Done (Platinum)
Unlock all trophies.
I Am Speed (Gold)
Complete the game in less than 2 hours.
How to unlock: It’s best to leave this achievement for the second playthrough, so that you’re already familiar with the stages. Know the correct sequence of actions and can avoid roaming around larger locations, such as the slums or the city. You can also use our walkthrough to remind yourself of the required steps and pause the game to stop the timer.
Can’t Cat-ch Me (Gold)
Complete the first Zurk pursuit without being caught.
How to unlock: This is one of the most challenging trophies, and it’s tied to the Dead City chase from Chapter 2. You need to avoid the zurks without making a single mistake – run in a zigzag pattern to dodge the jumping monsters and remember exactly where the zurks will appear next to avoid running into them. In case you fail (i.e. a zurk grabs you), pause the game and load the previous checkpoint.
Complete the Sewers without killing any Zurks.
How to unlock: Chapter 8 – The Sewers. To earn this trophy, you can’t use the Defluxor, i.e. the UV lamp that allows you to kill zurks. Instead, you need to: opt to run as much as possible, avoid approaching eggs to prevent monsters from hatching from them. You will receive this achievement at the end of the final sewer escape scene.
