This achievement guide for Life is Strange: True Colors is spoiler-free and each collectible has a picture and explanation to show exactly where they are.
Welcome & Roadmap
Welcome to my guide for Life is Strange: True Colors by NutellaOrgies.
I will try my best to keep this guide spoiler-free, and I ask everyone in the comments to keep it that way also. Life is Strange is all about the story and we don’t want to ruin the experience for the next person. Some achievements or scene names may have a spoiler in the name, so I tagged them as spoiler so it is blacked out.
If you used this guide, I would appreciate if you gave it a thumbs up, rating, or favorite.
There are a total of 40 achievements. It is a mix of story-related, collectibles, and side-missions. If you are using my guide, you can just scroll down as you gain each achievement as I will go in order of when you should unlock them.
You only need 1 play-through but if you did happen to miss an achievement, the chapter select in this game is very forgiving. There is a replay option that doesn’t go over your current save and made just for achievement hunting.
Difficulty : 1/10
Playthroughs : 1
Hours to 100% : 10 hours
If you do not have the game, it can be downloaded here.

I just want to thank you for using this guide for your 100% completion and hope that your run stayed spoiler-free.
Again, i’m just going to ask if you used this guide, I would appreciate if you gave it a thumbs up, rating, or favorite.
Do you love going for achievements but hate when you buy a game and don’t know whether or not you NEED to buy the DLC also? I recently started a curator page to help you out, it’s still new so not a lot of games are on there at the moment, but it lists what DLC you need to buy for the full 100% and starts each curation with the amount of achievements just in case they recently added more achievements so you can see if the curation is out of date and needs updating.
This is it guys!! I am sure that you will love Life is Strange: True Colors True Colors Achievement Guide that we have shared with you. We are always open to discussion and suggestions from you. Just let us what you thought about the guide in the comment section.
