Combine ten types of food
In Lone survivor much of the food you find can either be cooked or combined to make it more filling and satisfying. Some items are not cross combine-able. An example would be you need to first select Sliced cheese then Cheese Crackers and not the other way around to combine those two items.
You will not be able to achieve this trophy in your first playthrough because there isn't enough food. Also special equipment is required for some and you can only receive it if your mental health is high enough.
Sliced Cheese and Cheese Crackers = Cheese ‘N’ Crackers
Irradiated Orange and Fruit Salad = Special Fruit Salad
Irradiated Orange and Hot Rice Pudding = Hot and Fruity Rice Pudding (Cook the rice pudding before combining)
Fruit Salad and Rice Pudding OR Irradiated Orange and Rice Pudding = Fruity Rice pudding
Steamed Ham and Warm Beans = Ham'N'Beans (Need can opener)
Steamed Ham and Tin of Pickles = Ham'N'Pickles (Need can opener)
While making the Ultimate Cheeseburger there will be several items that need to be combined. That should push you over 10 combined food items. See Fast Food Chef
for more details on the Ultimate Cheeseburger.
Cook five types of food
In order to cook food you will need the Gas from apartment 204 (The Director's apartment). Then you will need to bring the gas back to your apartment and hook it up to the stove. Once that is done you can cook food. Food will get cold if you wait too long to eat it.
There are 6 types of food that can be cooked. Below is a list of food that can be cooked. You will need to cook five for this trophy.
Tin of Beans --> Warm Beans
Ham --> Steamed Ham (Need cooking pot)
Rice Pudding --> Hot Rice Pudding
Instant Ramen --> Cooked Ramen (need bottle of water)
Rat --> Fried Rat
Burger Patty --> Grilled Burger
Eat a Steamed Ham after combining it with another food
There are two Delicious hams available in the game. The first one is located in apartment 205 in the fridge. The second can be received from The Director the last time you visit him, if your mental health is good.
The ham must be cooked first, which requires a working stove and a cooking pot. The cooking pot another gift from the Director the first time you meet him, if your mental health is high enough. Once the ham is cooked and is now Steamed Ham, either combine it with tin of beans or tin of pickles for Ham'N'Beans or Ham'N'Pickles.
If you are following the guide this trophy should be completed on your second playthrough.
If you are on your second playthrough and going for the Pacifist
trophy you will have to use the first ham on the butcher's hook in room 202.

Eat ten kinds of food
There are many kinds of food in Lone Survivor. It is almost certain you will eat ten kinds of food without trying in your first playthrough of the game.
Drink three cups of coffee, no more than once a day
Drink three cups of espresso, no more than once a day
To brew coffee or espresso you need three things instant coffe/espresso powder, a kettle, and a bottle of water. The first two are received from The Director the first time you visit him. To get the bottle of water you need to drink a bottle of milk (this will physically harm you) to get an empty bottle. Once that is done you will need to get the bucket which is found in a room on the first floor. Then place the bucket under the dripping water in your apartment. After that you can fill the empty bottle with water at the bucket up to three times a day.
Once all ingredients are found you can brew coffee or espresso at the stove. If drank more than once a day it will hurt your mental health.
Drink three cups of coffee for the Coffee Aficionado
trophy and three cups of espresso for the Barista
trophy. Just be sure not to drink two in one day, it will not count towards the trophy progress then.
Eat five fruit drops, no more than once a day
During the second visit with The Director he will give you fruit drops if your mental health is high. Fruit drops improve your mental health if eaten. Eat five of them, no more than once a day to earn the trophy. Eating more than one a day will lower your mental health instead of improve.
Drink a Chilled Can Of Soda
See Soda Jerk
Drink a Chilled Mexican Cola
To chill both the Soda and Mexican Soda you will first have to adopt You's cat and offer the Cat the Cat Plush. He will give you the Cat Key when you do. See Pet Lover
for details on how to adopt the cat if you haven't already.
Once you have the Cat Key you can open the door in the hospital with a cat's paw print on it. While in the room there is a canister on the very left, approach it and use Mexican Cola and Soda on it, this will chill them both. After chilling them drink them both right away. If you are going for the White ending be sure to chill and drink both sodas before finishing the game, this will improve your mental health a lot and may be the difference maker between unperfect and perfect mental health.
Attempt to talk to The Man Who Wears A Box five times
Once you start the game the man who wears a box will be standing in the room next to an end table with a cup of coffee on it. Before drinking the coffee talk to the man who wears a box five times, the fifth time he will respond and say "I suggest the coffee". The trophy will pop when you go to sleep.

Give away a Delicious Ham This trophy will be earned while going for the Pacifist trophy (Second playthrough if you are following the roadmap)
To give away a delicious ham go to room 202 once you have the ham from 205. DO NOT eat the ham. When you are in 205 there will be a butcher's hook. Use the delicious ham and You will place it on the hook, that will cause a monster on the other side of the wall to attempt to claw at the ham. You will be able to avoid the monster later on in the hole behind the end table in Chie's apartment. The ham is essentially sacrificed as a way to get past the monster without using the revolver.
See both versions of the dancing dream
This trophy requires two playthroughs.In the first section of the streets there is a ruined building all the way to right past the gun shop. Enter it and there will be a cutscene with the man in blue. He will ask you if you know him. Deny his existence if you are going for the White ending, Acknowledge that you know him if you are going for the Red ending. Be sure to choose the answer you didn't choose in your previous playthrough!
Witness all five Green Dreams
To witness the five green dreams, swallow a green pill before going to sleep. You will visit the man who wears a box, he will give you food or batteries if you need either item. If you don't need anything nothing will be given to you. Once all five green dreams are witnessed the trophy will be earned when you go to sleep next.
Visit the bathroom in You's apartment for more pills. Taking green pills does not affect mental health.
Witness all five Blue Dreams
To witness the five blue dreams, swallow a blue pill before going to sleep. This must be done at least 5 times. This should be done during the first playthrough since taking blue pills negatively effects You's mental health. When dreaming you will visit the man in blue, he will ask you a question and give you 21 rounds of ammo if you have less than that. Once all five blue dreams are witnessed the trophy will be earned when you go to sleep next.
Visit the bathroom in You's apartment if you need more pills. Taking blue pills negatively affects mental health.
Play Soul Brother
During the third meeting with The Director he will give you an ESP. The ESP can be played on the couch in You's apartment. Doing so will increase his mental health but playing it more than once a day will decrease it. Playing the ESP consumes one battery.
Listen to your Personal Stereo
The Personal Stereo will also be given to You by The Director during the final meeting but only if you have high mental health and you have looked through the window of Piccadilly Records. Listening to it will increase mental health if done once a day and also comsumes one battery. It can be listend to on You's couch.
Talk to your fully-adopted cat five times
This trophy can only be achieved once the cat is adopted. To learn how to adopt the cat see Friend Yo The Fauna
Once the cat is adopted it can be talked to. However simply going up to him and choosing the talk to option does not fullfill the trophy requirements. They must be conversations that are activated by just interacting with the cat. Try to interact with the cat when you come into the apartment and wake up from going to sleep. Once you 'talk to' the cat five times the trophy will pop when you go to sleep.
Talk to Sleepy Cat five times
Sleepy Cat is a plush toy that You finds on the washing machine in the kitchen of apartment 206. To talk to it once its picked up just go to the menu, select it and choose to talk to it five times.
Friend To The Flora
Chuck the plant is a plant outside of apartment 206. To water him you need a empty bottle (obtained by drinking a milk) and the bucket found in a room on the first floor.
After that place bucket under the dripping water in apartment 206. Once the bucket is full of water, take the bottle, fill it up and go outside of the apartment and and interact with Chuck. Choose to water him. This will 'feed' Chuck. Feeding Chuck will increase You's mental health.
Friend Yo The Fauna
Feed all five tins of cat food to your cat
To feed that cat you will need tins of cat food. To get those you have to give Sleepy Cat comics to the Director and in return he will give you the cat food. See Friend To The Fellow Man
for the locations of the Sleepy Cat comics.
After you traded all five Sleepy Cat comics with The Director for the cat food you will need to approach the stray cat in the streets three times in the streets and feed him a tin of cat food. When approaching the cat move very slowly towards it. If it looks like its about to jump stop and wait a few seconds before continuing on. When you are close to the cat talk to him and give him a tin of cat food.
The first time you see the cat it will be next to the hospital, approach him slowly and feed him. If you scare him and he runs away come back the next day and try again. Once you feed him he will leave. You will have to find him again.
The second time you meet the cat he will be outside your apartment to the left of the fire exit. Move left until you see him and approach him the same way you did at the hospital. Feed him when you are close enough
After feeding him the second time the cat will be outside your apartment's fire exit. You will see him through the window. Use a tin of cat food in front of the door and the cat will come in and eat it. Once he is inside he will be adopted and you can name him. Feed him the remaining two tins of food for the trophy. Remember to talk to him for the Pet Lover
Friend To The Sick
Give Hank all five health tonics
Hank is a fellow survivor who is holed up in the Gun Store. Hank will ask you to give him blue pills, Do not give him any. Instead find all five health tonics and give all of them to him. They are all located in the streets.
The tonics are not that hard to find as long as you explore and look out for them. Below (in the next trophy description) is a map showing the locations of all five tonics. The numbers on the map correspond to the numbers below.
- In the building where you have the Dancing dream and see the man in blue.

Friend To The Fellow Man
Give all five Sleepy Cat comics to The Director
The third time you meet the director he wil give you the ESP and ask you for Sleepy Cat comics. If you give him the comics he will trade you tins of cat food which are used to adopt the cat. Make sure you give him all the comics before talking to him a fourth time. You can give The Director comics without talking to him, just go up to him and access the comics from the menu and select give.
All the Sleep Cat comics are found in the streets, all can be found be checking all areas thoroughly. Below is a map showing their locations.
The numbers on the map correspond to the numbers below.
- In the alleyway to the right of the fire exit.
- In the grocery store next to the box
- Past the grocery store in the next street
- In the next street after the previous Comic (#4)
- In Superflat World (the arcade)
Shoot the Writhing Thing
The writhing thing is a harmless monster found inside a room in the basement. When you shoot it You will have a short hallucination.
Be sure to shoot the writhing thing during your Red ending playthough (First playthrough when following the roadmap). Just make sure you don't shoot it when you arent going for the Pacifist
Escape from The Daddy without using your flashlight
The Daddy is the first boss in the game. The first time you meet him is in Wing Court 1F when you see him through the double doors. If you enter the doors you will notice an elevator and You will mention that maybe he can trap him in there. After that you will eventually reach the basement where you will have to turn on the generator. This is done by collecting the fuse, gas, and generator key which are all found within the basement. From there you use those items to turn on the generator and power the elevator.
After powering the elevator find the elevator in the basement.
Turn your flashlight off before pressing the elevator call button
Once you press the call button you will trap Daddy inside of the elevator. He will then break out of the elevator and proceed to chase you. To escape Daddy you need to get out of the basement, The Daddy cannot follow you out of it. To do this without a flashlight follow the directions below.
- Head left until you reach a lighted entryway. The Daddy cannot catch you as long as you keep running.
- Now head right until you reach another lighted entryway.
- Keep going left the whole way, there are no doors to enter
- Go left again, you will pass 8 doors, enter the lighted entryway
- Head all the way right, do not enter any doors!
- Start left and enter the first door you see
- Head right the whole way. A monster will appear but will not harm you.
- Go to right and enter the first lighted door you come across
You have now escaped The Daddy without a flashlight!
Defeat Mother without shooting or flares
Mother is the final boss in the game. She is located just beyond the school bus in the streets. To get to her you will have to get the bus door working again.
You can't really 'beat' mother. Mother will attempt to kill you for a set period of time until heading right and knocking down the gate. Shooting her and using flares will only stun her for a second. The trick to surviving Mother is when she lifts her arms above her head for an attack you can escape by running through her legs.
What I found works best is escaping through her legs and then running all the way to the left or right. Then wait there until she is right next to you, she will then do the attack where she lifts here arms and you can run through them. Just keeping doing this and the battle is over in no time.
Complete the game without using a mirror to travel
Mirrors act as teleporters in the game. If you look into one you will be transported back to You's apartment. If you look into the one in You's apartment you will transported back to the mirror you used last.
To get this trophy you can't use any mirrors during the whole game. This should be attempted while going for the Red ending (First playthrough if following the Roadmap). Since you are going for the Red ending you will be killing all the enemies so you will not have to deal with them once they are dead. This will help since you will have to do all of your traveling on foot. If you happent to use on one on accident quit the game and reload it.
Complete the game using one piece of rotting meat and no flares
Just like the trohpy says you can only use one rotting meat very early in the game and absolutely no flares. This is easier than it sounds since you just have to use the revolver to blow away everything in your path. Killing the monsters with the revolver will lower You's mental health so this should be done while going for the red ending (First playthrough if following the roadmap). If you use a rotting meat or flare by accident quite and reload the game.
Complete the game without firing a single shot
Believe it or not the game can be completed without using the revolver at all. You can use rotting meat to sneak past most monsters in the game. There a few you cannot so you will have to use flares on them. Since the enemies will not die you will want to eliminate all backtracking and only visit areas once. So explore thoroughly. Also use flares VERY sparingly. You can usually get two if not three monsters with one flare. But if you can sneak past with rotting meat do it, don't be lazy!
You can trade a clip (10 bullets) with The Director and he will give you 3 flares in exchange.
There a few special instances during the game where you will have to do something special since you cannot use your gun. They are listed below.
- In apartment 204 in the room with the can opener and fridge you can trap the monster from 204 in there. Notice there is a hiding spot in the room. After you pick up the can opener and Delicious ham from the fridge place a rottig meat down to the right of the hiding spot and quickly hide. Wait for the monster to come into the room and start eating the meat, then escape. The monster will no longer bother you.
- In apartment 202 there is a butcher's hook. Use the Delicious ham from 204 on the hook, this will distract a monster and allow you to pass by it later on in the game.
- In the room on the first floor where you find the bucket you will notice a monster in the doorway. After picking up the bucket place a rotting meat down and hide amongst the haning meat and exit the room once the monster passes. That monster will stay in that room as well now.
Complete the game in Expert Mode
To start the game in expert mode answer “I know my way around” to the question you are asked when you start a new game.
Expert mode is very similar to the normal mode. Enemies have the same health and deal the same damage. The only differences between Normal and Expert are you will not be able to check any of your maps when you like and there are no
symbols above items that can be interacted with. Playing the game once before trying expert mode really helps since you have an idea of what to do and which things can be interacted with.
Discover the Green Ending
To get the Green Ending You's mental health must be high.
After getting the White ending reload your game and instead of going down the corridor just head down the hospital hallway to the normal room where you usually end the game. The pill should be green. Swallow it and interact with the bed.
Discover the Blue Ending
To get the Blue ending You must have average mental health.
If you did not get the blue ending reload the game once you have got both the white and green endings. Then lower your mental health a considerable amount. See the mental health guide for a list of things that lower your mental health. Once you have lowered You's mental health go to the hospital and finish the game.
Discover the Red Ending
The Red ending is achieved by having the lowest possible mental health.
Getting the Red ending is not really hard. If you shoot everything in your path that will get you half way there. Just keep doing things that decrease your mental health throughout the game. If you get the Blue ending instead, reload and lower his mental health even more. What I did when I got the Blue ending was I ate a Rat and drank some milk. This seemed to lower You's mental health enough to get the red ending.
Note: You can get the Red ending while swallowing a blue pill in the hospital room before ending the game.
List of things that decrease mental health.
Getting hurt (screen flashing red)
Say you know The Man in Blue when asked
Eat bad food (Rats,Squid,Ground meat) and drink milk.
Use Blue and Red pills
Attempt to eat Rotting meat
Threaten Chuck the plant with the Scissors
Sleep while you are hungry
Turn your Flashlight on near Hank
Give Hank Blue Pills
Drink Coffee/Espresso/Soda more than once per day
See the mental health guide for more info on mental health.
Discover the Yellow Ending
There are two requirements for the yellow ending.
- On the previous playthrough you had to have attempted to give all characters Sleepy Cat. This includes Kenny, Bendizo, Chie, The Director (after he gives you the ESP), Hank (after giving him the 5 health tonics), The Man Who Wears a Box, and the cat.
- Finished the game and got the White ending
Once you have done those two things in the previous playthrough, start a new game. When the game starts there should be an image of You holding Sleeping Cat. Once the game starts pick Sleepy Cat up from in your kitchen, then head to Chie's Apartment. Give her the Sleepy Cat Plush. This will end the game.
Discover the White Ending
To get the White ending You must be in perfect mental health.
You will have to be in new game+ so you will have had to beat the game at least once before attempting the White ending. There are also a few other things you will have to/should do during the playthrough to get the White ending.
You will have to attempt to give the Sleepy Cat (cat plush) to Kenny, Bendizo, Chie, The Director, Hank, The Man who wears a Box, and the cat. (Also a requirement for the yellow ending)
Be sure to also to give all health tonics to Hank, Give all Sleepy Cat comics to The Director, Adopt the cat and feed it all five tins of food, and make the Ultimate Cheeseburger and eat it relatively close to when you want to finish the game. See the respective trophies on instructions on how to do all of those things.
Also check out the mental health guide for more info on what actions can increase your mental health and basic info on mental health.
Once you are in the hospital you should chill your soda and Mexican Cola in the special room that you can access with the cat key (See Soda Jerk
for more details). Drink them afterwards. This might push you over the threshold of perfect mental health.
Then that try to open the first doors in the hospital. If You says he is too afraid to open them you have to go back and try to improve his mental health more.
Once you get in the corridor head left. There will be a short scene with Her. After the scene Her will start crawling after you, quickly go backwards to the hiding spot and hide. If she catches you, you will instantly die. Flares, the revolver, and rotting meat is all useless against her. Once she passes you while you are hiding, quickly run to the next hiding spot ahead and wait for her to pass you again. Continue doing this until you reach a spot with a bunch of Thin Men (Normal monsters). There will be a final hiding spot that you can slide past all the Thin Men and enter a hospital door. Drink the water and sleep on the bed to finish the game.
