Stray Starter Guide

Take your time exploring EVERYTHING

The world of Stray is beautiful and when you're not racing away from tick-like monsters called Zurks there's plenty of things to interact with. When reaching new areas make sure to talk to all the Robots, interact with all the items, and search every nook and cranny as there are plenty of additional things to find as you make your way through the world.

Stray Scratch - Chapter 4


Interact with items in your inventory

The primary story for Stray is really exceptional and the way that you learn about it through dialogue with important characters is a large part of that. There are also a number of less obvious things going on around you too. There are certain items that you'll obtain that you'll be able to spin around and reveal more information. Make sure you're checking what you pick up to get a better idea of the state that the world is in.


Stray F.A.Q

What is Stray?

Stray is a third person adventure game developed by BlueTwelve Studio and published by Annapurna. You play as a cat who has fallen into a city that has been closed off to the world for hundreds of years. Trying to find your way back to the outside and your littermates you'll get to see the good, and bad of the city as you search to return to the surface.

Is Stray on PlayStation Plus?

Yes, subscribers to the PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Premium tier will be able to download and play Stray for no additional cost when it releases on the 19th of July 2022.

What can I play Stray on?

Stray is available to play on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. On PlayStation 5 there is some dualsense support, though the triggers are infrequently used.

Is there a Chapter Select?

Yes there is! From the main menu there's the ability to jump back into any chapter. The chapter select screen will also let you know how many memories of each chapter you've obtained. The memories and badges you've obtained will persist through replays but any items obtained or questlines that you're part way through completing will not. Your badges and memories will only save if you complete the chapter after collecting them though so make sure to do that!

How do I view my Badges?

You can see which badges you've already obtained by looking at the vest your cat is wearing. They will get clipped onto either side as you obtain them.

Are there any missable Trophies/Achievements in Stray?

No Trophies or Achievements are missable in Stray. You can use the Chapter Select to return to any chapter you've missed an objective or collectible in and then can return to your current position in the story.

Where is the fourth Energy Drink?

In the Slums, there's an easy three Energy Drinks you can use to get the memory from the Barterman. If you also want to get the Music Sheet then you should head to Grandma's Clothing, then walk to the right until you find the alley with the robot watching TV. From there climb up the crates in the corner to find a balcony with a hidden Vending Machine.

How do I get the Pacifist Achievement / Trophy?

We've got a video walkthrough below that you can use to get this trophy!
