Final Fantasy 15: Full List of Trophies and Achievements

A list and guide for Final Fantasy XV's Trophies and Achievements.

Final Fantasy XV has been out for some time now and many fans still haven't seen and done everything in the game.

Going for Achievements and Trophies can help in this regard, as they act as a way to not only guide you to a game's secrets, they can add longevity and replay value.

Here is a list of Achievements and Trophies for Final Fantasy XV and a short guide on how obtain the more complicated Trophies. Some are unlocked by progressing through the story and therefore are unmissable, while others are self-explanatory.

This is the only achievement that will require you to play on the 'normal' difficulty or above, otherwise you are able to play through the entire game on 'easy' mode.

It is recommended you equip the Ice Brand weapon since Ifrit is weak to ice based attacks, then combine this with the Ignis' Libra Tech ability.
