Valorant PS5 trophies leaked ahead of playtest beta’s start

Valorant’s console beta is set to start but the PS5 trophy list has already leaked, worrying some completionist trophy hunters. 

PlayStation hands out trophies for in-game achievements and milestones. Generally, games on the console come with trophies that players can obtain by meeting certain in-game conditions. The Xbox counterpart is called Achievements and works in the same way. The leaked Valorant trophy list hints at how the trophies will work in the first-person shooter. 

Valorant, a first-person competitive shooter, is landing on consoles for the first time. Riot Games, the makers of the popular MOBA, League of Legends, is behind the title. While the developers have a rich legacy of running successful PC games, this is their first time venturing into console territory. The console beta, which kicks off in a few days, will determine how the mouse and keyboard-dependent shooter translates to consoles. 

How many trophies does Valorant have?

Valorant will have 16 total trophies on the PS5, but the game won’t have a platinum trophy.

The Valorant trophies seem straightforward but could take some time to unlock. The easiest trophy, “Who’s next?” will unlock with just one kill. Another easily obtainable trophy, “And that’s how it gets done!” unlocks by winning a single game. The rest will take more time, like getting 1,000 headshots. Using the ability 4,000 times will be a grind but can be achieved naturally through gameplay. 

The lack of a Platinum trophy might disappoint some trophy hunters. This isn’t the first instance where a high-profile game shipped without a platinum trophy. Previously, games like Outlast, Apex Legends, Sonic Mania, and the 2005 Resident Evil 4 didn’t have a platinum trophy. It’s possible that the leaked trophy list is just for the console beta, and Riot Games might add the Platinum in the full release. Here’s the full list of leaked trophies:

  • And that’s how it gets done! – Win 1 Game
  • Beep beep beep, enough of that. – Successfully defuse a Spike with less than a second remaining
  • Five in, five out. – Get a Flawless
  • Here comes the party! – Use your Ultimate 125 times
  • I know exactly where you are. – Get 10 Wallbang Kills
  • I’m built different. – Earn a Clutch
  • Looks like I got a little carried away. – Deal 500,000 Damage
  • Must I do everything? – Get an Ace
  • Next time we’ll use wooden sticks! – Get a Thrifty
  • Right between the eyes. – Get 300 Headshots
  • Take control. – Use your Abilities 4,000 times
  • That’s going to leave a scar. – Deal 250,000 Damage
  • They’re super dead! – Get 1,000 Headshots
  • Time for a field test. – Use your Abilities 2,000 times
  • Who’s next? – Get 1 Kill
  • You want to play? Let’s play – Use your Ultimate 300 times

These PS5 trophies will likely be the same as the achievements on the Xbox Series X/S versions of Valorant.

What’s the hardest trophy in Valorant?

The trophy “Beep beep beep, enough of that.” which requires successfully defusing a Spike with less than a second remaining, is the hardest trophy in Valorant.

Plenty more can be considered challenging, like the trophy which requires an Ace wiping the whole opposing team and earning a flawless win no teammates die in the round. The hardest trophies will require some luck to achieve, especially the one where players need to defuse the spike with just a second to spare.

The trophy associated with “Thrifty” is also tricky; winning using a less powerful weapon than the opponent is always challenging. Similarly, winning clutches and getting wallbang kills will require some time to achieve. It’s a healthy trophy list with a good mix of skill and luck-based trophies.  Though most of these would be difficult to execute on the spot, they’re mostly things that will happen naturally over time.

While content from the PC version will transfer to the console release, it’s unknown if stats will .
