Portal 2 Trophies
The name of the game in Portal 2 is overcoming a number of specific, circumscribed obstacles. The trophies system is just an extension of these idea — instead of levels, the challenges are more complicated and idiosyncratic. Either way, earning trophies feels good, and you can’t earn most of the good ones unless you know what they are. With that in mind, we’re providing the full trophy list for Portal 2. You can also check out our list of achievements, our cheats page (which acts as a central hub for all sorts of useful information about the game) and our full co-op and singleplayer walkthrough.
