Layers of Fear 2
How to Unlock All Achievements in Layers of Fear 2
The game has a total of 33 trophies. As usual, the platinum one is available to owners of the PS4 version. The remaining trophies include 5 gold, 10 silver and 17 bronze achievements.
To unlock all achievements, you’ll have to complete the game at least three times to see three different endings. However, there is a little trick. Once you complete the storyline, you have access to еру New Game+ mode. In this mode, you can run any film during your visit to the dressing room and start the walkthrough of any particular act.
We advise you to read our endings guide to understand what we will be discussing below. So, we offer the following scheme: in the first two acts you should choose actions that suit the director. In the two following acts, the third and the fourth, choose actions that he won’t like. Complete the game, launch New Game+ and replay the fourth act, choosing the option that suits the director. After this, complete the fifth chapter and see the final. Then, you will need to replay any two acts from the first, second, and fourth, choosing options that won’t suit the director. Start the fifth act again and see the third ending.
Unlock all other achievements to get this achievement. It is available only on PS4.
You Can’t Handle the Truth
This achievement precedes We Are Not Alone. You must use the shell to listen to only one item.
To get this achievement, you must unlock the ending with James. To do this, shoot at the female mannequin in the first act, follow your instinct in the second act, shoot at the characters on the side in the third act and go with the flow in the fourth act. You must complete three out of four conditions.
To get this achievement, you must get the third ending of the game. In this case, you’ll have to make decisions that don’t suit the director. Shoot at the male mannequin in the first act, choose logic in the second act, shoot at Lily in the third act, and go against the flow in the fourth act. You must complete three out of four conditions.
During the walkthrough of the third act, when you assemble a rocket in the office and go to travel in space, dodge flying meteorites. Avoid collision with each of them to get this achievement.
Rule of Three
Get all three endings.
Body of Work
You must collect all posters in the game. You will find three posters in each of the five acts. Our walkthrough of Layers of Fear 2 indicated the location of all posters.
A Beautiful Mind
To get this achievement, you must solve the puzzle with clocks in the second act without making mistakes. To do this, start by setting the clock hand on ‘’8’’, then ‘’4’’, ‘’5’’, ‘’7’’, ‘’10’’, followed by ‘’1’’, ‘’2’’, ‘’3’’, ‘’6’’, ‘’7’’, ‘’8’’, ‘’9’’, ‘’10’’.
We Are Not Alone
You must find all mysterious items (a note, two plants and two cubes), pick the shell from the sea (read the description of the achievement Fisher King) and insert it in the slots under each item. Make sure to take the items in your hands in order to listen to commentary.
To get this final and unlock the achievement, you must make two decisions that suit the director and two decisions that he won’t like. For example, shoot the female mannequin in the first act, choose the instinct in the second act, shoot at Lily in the third act and go against the flow in the fourth act.
You must collect and listen to all phonograph records that contain James’ interview. The first record lies near the machine by default. Each of the five chapters contains one record. You should listen to all of them. Thus, you will have to use the New Game+ to listen to the fifth record.
The Perfect Storm
You must send an SOS signal. You can do it from the room with a telegraph – you will get there in the first and in the fifth acts. To send an SOS signal, click the telegraph three times with short beeps, hold the button three times to send long signals, and then quickly click the telegraph to send short signals. If the achievement has not been obtained, increase the length of long signals (dash).
You must liberate five rats during the walkthrough of the fourth act. You will set the first rat free automatically as you progress along the storyline. After this, you will find yourself in the cave. Before you climb the ship using the rope ladder, find four rooms, complete simple actions and open the cages. In one of the rooms, you must set the image of the skull on the left TV, and an image of the hand pointing to the right side (from the skull) on the right TV.
You must catch all items from the sea using the telescope. The new items will appear in the water after the completion of each act. You are not obliged to catch them before the beginning of the next chapter. You may fully complete the game, start New Game + and go up to the telescope to deal with the items.
You will likely have trouble with the shell which is hidden from your eyes. After you find the note (a mysterious item) from the second act, examine it and see a picture of the horizon with the inscription ‘’42 seconds’’. Use the telescope and look at the horizon for 42 seconds until you hear a splash of water. Grab the shell that has just appeared.
A Mosaic of Misery
You must find all slides and watch them in the cabin of the protagonist. As there are two slides in the fifth act, you will have to finish the game and start New Game+ to see each of them.
We Don’t Talk About It
One of the easily overlooked achievements. In the second act, when you complete the segments with the flame from which you hid behind various objects, turn on the TV by the mannequin and run through the door. The monster will chase you. Enter another building and see a door in front of you. Do not rush to open it as it will lead to the completion of the chapter. Instead, jump into the hole in the niche on the right. Move the curtain and activate the detonator to blow up a strange device.
You should only find one of fifteen posters to unlock this achievement.

When making your decision in the first act, ignore the director’s request and shoot at the male mannequin.

Go With the Flow
When making your decision in the fourth act, go with the flow.
In the fourth act, when you open the metal gates by lowering the lever on the left side, a mutant will come out of casket that is located in front of you. Run away from him. When you see an open casket, close it. The monster will disappear, and you’ll get the achievement.
A Slice of Life
Find your first slide to unlock this achievement. We have indicated the locations of all slides in our walkthrough.
To unlock this achievement, you must run at least one phonograph record in the cabin of the protagonist.
In One Take

Lights, Camera, Action!
This achievement will be available at the very beginning of the game. There is no way to miss it.
Repair, Restore, Rebuild
You won’t miss this achievement. You’ll get it closer to the end of the fifth act.
You must get at least one item out of the water to get this achievement.
Choice and Consequence
