Welcome to the Subnautica (PS5) trophy guide!
During this trophy guide we will be purely making use of the “Dev Panel”. I would highly recommend playing this game normally without the Dev Panel for your first playthrough to fully experience and immerse yourself in this amazing open-world survival action-adventure game set on an alien planet – The game itself is developed by Unknown Worlds Entertainment.


Credit goes to YouTube channel ‘Klye’ for allowing us to create this text guide based off their video guide on YouTube. If you would much rather use a video guide over a text guide, then check this out –

Tips and Strategies:

  • After each teleport pause the game until the scenery loads, so you do not fall through the map.
  • Always remember to have the 5 cheats enabled and disabled when I say so within guide, or it may limit your opportunity to earn trophies.
  • Do not worry, using ‘give’ or ‘teleport’ will not effect trophies.
  • Apparently PS4 Dev Panel has been patched out, this may happen to PS5 version in future – I’d get this while you still can.
