Platinum trophies are great. You love them. I love them. We all love them. They’re often considered a badge of honor. A sign that you’ve thoroughly enjoyed a game, or at the very least, seen everything the game has to offer. Of course, not all platinum trophies were created equal. While some put our skills to the test, others are a walk in the park to obtain in comparison. So, with Sony’s latest console having been out for around 6 months now, we’re taking a look at the easiest PS5 platinum trophies you can get so far.
We’ll be updating this post as and when more easy PS5 platinum trophies pop-up, so be sure to keep checking back soon for more titles to add to your shortlist.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Easiest PS5 Platinum Trophies
While it might not be a platinum you can get in the space of just a few hours, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart earns its spot on our list for not just an easy trophy list, but for being an absolute blast to play even after you’ve rolled up the credits.
From our time with the game, we were able to get all of the trophies in a playthrough and a couple of hours at the very most in the ‘Challenge Mode’ (Rift Apart’s New Game Plus).
The trophies likely to cause you the most trouble are Shifty Character which requires you to hit every Blizon Crystal in two levels (it can be a pain to find which ones you’ve missed if you need to come back to it), and Return Policy which requires you kill 10 enemies by returning shots with the Void Reactor weapon.
While Return Policy may not sound that tricky, it’s more of a pain purely because of how the weapon works. If you’ve upgraded it, too, this makes it even more difficult to defeat an enemy with returning shots, and not the shield’s blast radius.
Outside of that, Rift Apart’s platinum trophy is a bit of a cake walk, especially if you use a trophy guide to polish off any straddlers and collectibles. It’s also a must-buy PS5 game right now, so go pick it up already!
