Snapchat has found yet another way to get us addicted: trophies.
Snapchat debuted a "Trophy Case" in its latest major upgrade in September. The feature allows users to win trophies for every major -- and not-so-major -- milestone they reach on Snapchat, from hitting a certain "Snapchat score" to sending their first video snap.
You can access your trophy case by tapping the white ghost icon on Snapchat's camera screen, and then clicking on the trophy at the top of the profile screen. You'll see a collection of emoji-style icons: Some of the trophies may be unlocked (for instance, you may see 📼 or👆), meaning you've completed the associated task. The awards that are still unlocked are aptly signaled by the🔒 emoji. One item in the case may correspond to multiple trophies.
Here's my trophy case, for example:
So how do you fill up your case? Well, the difficulty is that "there is no public list of trophies," as Snapchat writes in its guidelines.
"The more you explore Snapchat, the more opportunities you’ll have to earn trophies. For example, if you reach a high enough Snapchat score, or send a certain number of stories from Discover, you might earn a trophy," the guidelines explain.
It's pretty vague, but that's part of the fun: figuring out how to unlock them or chancing upon a new trophy while trying out one of Snapchat's many filters and features.
Spoiler alert: If you genuinely relish the challenge of discovering new trophies on your own, don't read any further. But if you need a little help filling up that case, we've compiled an unofficial list of Snapchat trophies, complete with instructions on how to unlock each achievement. Some of the tasks may seem pretty intuitive; others, however, are a little more obscure. The list appears to be exhaustive based on the number of trophies in the case, although Snapchat hasn't stated how many trophies there are.
Consider this your personal cheat sheet to achieve Snapchat stardom.
