All 42 Trophies and Achievements

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.

The Resident Evil 2 remake has 42 Trophies and Achievements to earn while playing. You’ll find them all listed below.

We’ve broken them into story-based and gameplay-based categories. You won’t be able to earn every trophy in a single game — some of them depend on starting as Leon while others require starting as Claire.

There are 10 Trophies and Achievements that you’ll earn just by playing the game. Our guides will help you through any section you’re struggling with.
