The Witness Trophy Guide

Introduction

Welcome to The Witness Trophy Guide for Playstation 4. This game is an open world puzzle game that is quite similar to games like Portal and Talos Principle. The game features some incredibly vibrant and good looking visuals. The game has large puzzle sections split up over the map and there is a trophy for completing each one of these. The trophy list is relatively simple with "Challenge" being the only difficult trophy in the game.

There isn't much of a trophy guide walkthrough I can give for this game. The trophy list is super basic and the difficulty comes in solving the in game puzzles. There shouldn't be much confusion around the trophy requirements. Since there are no missable trophies, you can go ahead and just start playing this game whatever way you like. Try to beat it without using a guide, but if you need it I will embed a video guide for each of the puzzle related trophies to help you get them if you are stuck. Each of the trophies in each area will unlock once you have activated the laser which will be the final puzzle that you need to solve in the area.

There is a trophy called "Challenge" which is going to give you a hard time. You have around 6 minutes to solve a completely randomised puzzle. The puzzles they throw at you are difficult to solve in such a short time and without any current way to cheat this, this is the only thing stopping you from getting the platinum. Granted it only takes a few minutes to try, if you fail it isnt a big deal to try agian. There was a glitch you can use to suspend the PS4 after you start the puzzle, which will pause the timer. You can then study that puzzle and work on a solution in your head or on paper before starting the game back up and attempting the puzzle. You will need to downgrade the version of the game that you have which can be tricky to do if the patch downloads too fast, but it is an option if you are having a hard time with this one.

As I mentioned in the walkthrough, this is the only difficult trophy in the game. It is not impossible by any means, but you will be required to solve a series of puzzles where you are restricted by a time limit. The puzzles change so there is no guide for this like there were for all of the other trophies in this game. The video guide below will help you figure out the best path to take in order to get to the end. Solving those puzzles is up to you, which is why it is best not to use the walkthrough for every single puzzle in this game, otherwise you will not be good enough at them to solve them quickly.
