Prey guide: Full list of achievements and trophies

If you’re hunting for trophies, you’ve got some tough choices to make.

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

Let’s get this out of the way first: This article is full of spoilers about Prey. The names and descriptions of even the general achievements and trophies will give away hints and tidbits about not only the story, but also some of the mechanics that are fun to discover on your own. Consider yourself warned.

General achievements

A lot of the general achievements listed below are tied to abilities and powers that you’ll acquire throughout the game by finding neuromods. Others are things you do or don’t do. The main thing to take away from this list, though, is that you’re not going to get them all in one playthrough — you’re going to have to make some choices about how to play.
