The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (2024)

Welcome to The Pathless Trophy Guide! The Pathless is an indie open-world game in which you play as the Hunter who embarks on a perilous journey to lift the curseon an island corrupted by the Godslayer. The Pathless is a very fun Platinum, featuringfun traversal, combat and puzzle mechanics.

To unlock the Platinum trophy you need nearly 100% completion. With only a few trophies tied to the story, most trophiesare tied to Collectibles. Althoughthere is no in-game map, all Collectibles are still marked in the world by three different lights: blue for Lore, stronger red for Lightstones, and weaker redfor Lanterns. You can always see a Collectible’s location by pressing The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (1) at any point during the game (best done from high-up locations, like obelisks). There’s also a bunch of trophies tied to miscellaneous activities you can unlock at any point during the game or clean up after the story.

Nothing is missable and you can revisit all Plateausafter completing the story. The only trophy you need to watch out for is The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (2) Storm Survivor. This is missable because once you’ve cleansed each Plateau of their curse, the storm will disappear and therefore locking you out of it. The good news is that if you miss it, you can start a new game and unlock it within the first 30 minutes. Additionally, The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (3) Sky Master is semi-missable depending on how many times you get spotted by the corrupted creatures while trapped in a storm.

Your first step is simple. Enjoy this beautifully written story. To avoid too much mopping up after the story, try to collect as many Collectibles as possible. Whatever you miss can be cleaned upafter the story.

After you’ve beaten the story, you’ll be brought back to the Main Menu. From here, hit Continue and you’ll be warped back to the Mountain Tundra. Time to clean up any Lightstones, Lore or Lanterns you’ve left behind.

This step is optional and can be easily combined with Step 2. If you still have some miscellaneous trophies left to unlock, take care of them now. Congrats on your new shiny Platinum trophy!

Get 10 flaps.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (11)*SEMI-MISSABLE*

Early in the story you will meet your companion, an eagle. The eagle is essential to quickly reach high-altitude locations and get across a Plateaumuch faster. To gain altitude, your eagle can use flaps.You start with one flap, but over the course of the story you willunlock 4more, one aftereach Plateau’sboss. To get to 10 you need Crystals which can be collected either byfinding Lanterns’ locations and solving their puzzles or by opening chests scattered across the world (marked in a weaker red after pressing The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (12) ).

This is trophy is semi-missable. If you happen to get caught in a storm and spotted by the corrupted creature too many times, you can lose experience and potentially flaps, making it more difficult to get to 10.

Losing one flap during your first encounter with the Godslayer is scripted, so don’t worry about that.

The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (13)Skill Shot Master
Chain 10 skill shots in a row.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (14)To perform a skill shot, you need to shoot at a talisman and release The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (15) once the diamondis only half full. The trophy icon itself shows you exactly when you need to release the trigger. If you’ve done this successfully, you should see a gold sparkcoming out of the talisman’s diamond. You can do this on the same talisman if you so prefer.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (16)Epic Flight
Fly for over a minute without touching an updraft.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (17)This is best done once you have at least 5 flaps. Once you do, reach a really high location (the Old Fortressor the Observatory are really good for this) and swoopyourself up. As you fly around the world, time your flaps to gain altitude when needed. Otherwise, just simply continue playing through the story and eventually it will unlock naturally as you travel to each Collectible’s location.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (18)Super Slide
Slide 400 meters down a steep slope.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (19)Steep slopes can be easily found all around the Mountain Tundra Plateau.

Fall 150 meters without gliding and land hard.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (21)This will unlock quite naturally as you go from one obelisk to the next. To fall 150 meters without gliding and land hard, simply jump off a really high place. Obelisks are really good for this. It doesn’t matter if you’ve cleansed it or not.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (22)River Rider
Drift 300 meters down a river.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (23)To drift 300 meters down a river, simply jump in the water and let the river current carry you.

Run with 6 animals.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (34)This is probably the most annoying trophy in the game. To have an animal run with you, you need to run after it for a while until it glows gold. Once it glows gold, you can stop and the animal will start running with you. Repeat for 5 animals. What makes this annoying is that the gold sparkle is very hard to notice and the animals can stop following you without a real reason. This is best done in the first Plateau of the game, The Forest, with deer.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (35)Storm Survivor
Survive 3 storm encounters unscathed.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (36)*MISSABLE*

Across each Plateau is a sphere-looking, red-colored storm inside of which the corrupted creature hunts you. To survive a stormencounter unscathed you have to reach your eagle without getting spotted. If the corrupted creature’s eye is on you, stand still. If you get spotted, you will lose experience and potentially eagle’s flaps if you get caught way too many times.

This trophy is missable because once you’ve cleansed a Plateau of its curse, the storm won’t be there anymore. Therefore, it is highly recommended to get this trophy out of the way in the first Plateau of the game, The Forest. It is also advised to unlock it in the first Plateau because then you won’t have much eagle’s experience, so, if caught, you won’t lose much. Simply enter a storm, survive it and do the same two more times.

The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (37)Eagle’s Companion
Pet the eagle 4 times.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (38)This only works when your eagle is cursed. Whenever you enter a Plateau’scorrupted area, including a storm, your eagle will get cursed. To lift the curse, you need to pet it. Your first petting chance is during the story after meeting the eagle. The remaining three pets can be unlocked after survivinga storm three times. This trophy should unlock after surviving a storm for the third time.The Pathless Trophy Guide & Roadmap (39)The Pathfinder’s Tale
