Trophy-hunters in Stellar Blade will likely have a hard time earning the Naytiba Researcher achievement if they ignore one key mechanic in the game

Luckily, I'm going to tell you exactly what to look out for so you don't miss out on it during your playthrough. 

How to unlock Naytiba Researcher

The only way to guarantee Stellar Blade players can unlock the Naytiba Researcher Trophy is by visiting Eidos 9 after filling the Lily progress bar before the mission "Orcal's Testimony". 

As mentioned in the game's list of trophies, this achievement requires you to get information on all Naytibas by killing one of each of the 67 types. Amongst all those enemies, the Cocoon Naytiba can only be found on Eidos 9 - meaning you'd miss the Naytiba Researcher Trophy if you progressed towards the end of Stellar Blade without going.

All other Naytiba for the Trophy, including all bosses and standard enemies, can easily be found by fully exploring all of the regions throughout the campaign before the point of no return - meaning you'll be able to pop the achievement as you get towards the end of your playthrough.
