Similar to The Surge 2‘s Iron Maus trophy, Reverse Engineering is difficult because it is either a little glitchy or more complicated than meets the eye. To get the trophy you don’t need to obtain the armor, do a fancy trick, utilize a special drone, perform a finishing move or any of that nonsense. Instead, it’s far more convoluted. Here’s our The Surge 2 Reverse Engineering Trophy/Achievement guide:
Despite trying everything listed above, the only time the trophy/achievement unlocked was when I removed the Gaia Statues’ right arm, picked up the item and proceeded to finish it off with the Gaia Lancer. I don’t know if picking up the item is important, but it seems like a more symbolic requirement than anything else. Less, defeat it with the Gaia Lancer and more remove its weapon and then proceed to defeat it with the same weapon.
