A Way Out Easy all trophies

The following guide details how to easily unlock all trophies in the game in chronological order. Nothing is missable; you can redo all trophies through chapter select. Also, unless written otherwise, both players earn the trophy at the same time. This game can only be played with two players (offline and online) — there is no single player mode. Note: The times listed below corresponds to the time the trophy is covered in the video below.
