Uncharted 4 Treasures and collectibles guide

A complete list of how to find every treasure, journal note, journal entry and optional conversation in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

The Uncharted games are known for their well-hidden collectibles, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is no exception. As well as the series' traditional Treasures hidden through every level, Naughty Dog's latest adds three new kinds of collectible: Journal Notes, Journal Entries, and Conversations. There are 109 Treasures, 23 Journal Notes, 25 Journal Entries and 36 Conversations, and you'll need to collect them all if you want to unlock everything the game has to offer. Here's our guide to just how to do that.

If you're picking up the collectibles while playing through the game for the first time, they're all listed as they occur in our full walkthrough (linked below). But if you are hopping around the game mopping the collectibles up after completion, then you might find the guides in this article more useful.

On this page, we present a full list of Treasure locations, in the order they appear in the in-game menu. On the following pages, we list Journal Notes, Journal Entries and Conversations in the order they crop up in the game.

  3. Mughal Ivory Powder Flash: When you reach the first tower (next to the slippery slope) climb up to find this on a box on the wooden platform inside.
  4. Parchment Scroll: Shortly after the first tower you'll come to a fork. Take the left path to find some ruins, and this is on a box inside.
  5. Ancient Fertility Idol: A while after the first tower, the path takes a 180 degree turn to the left. Head round behind the boulder in this area and climb through the gap in the rocks to find this on a crate to your left.

  8. Pewter Letter Cylinder: After cresting the hill into the large open area, head right to find a well. Position the truck so that it's facing the collapsed bit of wall on the edge of the well and then take the winch cable down with you.

  10. English Musket Bandolier: After cresting the hill into the large open area, head for the cliffs below the tower to find a large opening. Drive through, deal with the enemies at the other end, then use the barrels to clear a path down through a hole in the middle of the ruin.
  11. Antique Tea Tin: After cresting the hill into the large open area, drive straight ahead to the rear of the area and then left along a raised rocky path to find another ruin. Fight off the mercenaries then blow the doors to find this in the rear of the building.

  13. Scottish Snuff Mull: When you reach the final tower, head to the right of the small outbuilding to the left to find this on a crate.

  3. Silver and Wood Tankard: From the starting point head right around the islands until you find a large beach (to the rear of the tower). Head for the skeleton in the centre, and when you're facing him turn almost 180 degrees to your right. You'll see a rock with a small gap along the bottom, and the item is in the grass to the left hand end.
  4. Persian Silver Pen Box: From the starting point head right around the islands until you find a large beach (to the rear of the tower). From the shore looking towards the tower head to the left side of the beach to find this in a cave.
  5. Panamanian Pendant: From the starting point head down the channel between the two islands and turn right. There's a very small beach just around the corner with a solitary palm tree on it, and the pendant is tucked at the back.
  6. Persian Leather Notebook Case: From the starting point head down the channel between the two islands and turn left. Pass through the first natural arch in the rocks then move the boat over to the left and park it next to the small ledge. Climb onto the roof of the boat and use it to reach the ledge, then climb up to find the notebook.
  7. Decani Bronze Spouted Bowl: Once inside the cave you'll find a ruined building. This item is under the rocky arch to the right of the area.

  11. Strange Relic: At the bottom of the slope above the cistern, head left to the cliff edge and climb the handholds to your left. In the distance above you is a rope anchor - take a running jump towards it and deploy your rope in midair to swing across to the far side.
  12. Hamsa Mythical Goose: When hanging from the second statue on your way down the large cistern, climb up your rope until you're at about the same height as its feet then swing across and grab the ledge. The goose is in the alcove just to the left.
  13. Pique Tortoiseshell Box: At the bottom of the cistern enter the supply room and get into the water on the far side. Swim right and climb up the shallow ramp to find this behind a bush ahead to the left.

CHAPTER 13
(Note: All these are located after the cutscene that involves you falling into a deep ravine - there's nothing to collect until that point.)

  1. Persian Ring: As you reach the large rocky outcrop by the waterfall for the first time, head for the edge nearest the waterfall (look up and there should be a rope anchor high above you). Drop down and grab the edge and work your way down and left and then back up, and the ring is in a handhold set back slightly from the top edge.

CHAPTER 15

  1. Emerald Flask: From your starting position head left behind the row of shelves, and this is tucked underneath the leaning shelf and the main row.

CHAPTER 16

  1. Toy Soldier: Underneath a bench to the front left of the large ornamental fountain past the front door.
  2. Toy Seaplane: After looking at the sarcophagus, head up the short flight of stairs opposite the statue of two reclining figures.

CHAPTER 17

  1. Mughal Flared Vase: After climbing the first ladder look on the cliff edge to the left just past the bush.
  2. Mughal Hinged Box: There's a short fight after using the first elevator. From there turn right and drop down the broken steps to find it.

  4. Ancient Stone Bowl: After the elevator-based fight, head past the truck and follow the ledge round to the right.
  5. Pewter Incense Burner: Just before reaching the third elevator there's a small shack to the right of the river. Head inside and climb out of the back window and it's on the ground to your right.

CHAPTER 18

  1. Mughal Stout Vase: In the far left of the starting area.

  6. Spanish Brass Chalice: After passing through the upstairs bedroom, turn right and look behind the damaged sofa at the far end.
  7. Mughal Painted Elephant: You'll cross a fallen moss-covered tree after the dining room, and eventually end up entering a building through a hole in the wall. Instead of going inside, carry on along the outside of the building, and you'll find it on a ledge on the wall near the cannons.
  8. Mughal Dinnerware: After shoving your way through the door into the room where the trail of footprints ends, climb the spiral staircase in the corner to find this on a desk upstairs.

CHAPTER 19

  1. Ancient Stone Vessel: In the room with the exploding mummies at the bottom of the slippery slope, head down the left passage and it's on the floor nest to the bottom step.
  2. Mughal Decorative Cudgel: From the mermaid room, head down the left passage and it's on some barrels to the right.

CHAPTER 20

  1. Jade Flower Pendant: After emerging outside and admiring the view, follow the narrow ledge and then climb onto the ledge above. Position yourself between the edge and the barrel and take a flying leap at the cliff opposite and grab it with your piton - it's a tight jump, you may need to take a curved trajectory to build up enough speed, and the blinding light from ahead doesn't help with aiming yourself, but it is doable. Climb up to the top to collect the item.
  2. Stoneware Bearded Jug: After everyone is reunited, follow the gang until you reach an area with a wonky sign in the middle. Head left to the water's edge and double back, then climb into the building on the left.

CHAPTER 21

  1. Mughal Enamel Bird: On the third rope swing, turn around and swing the other way to reach a ledge just above Sam's footprints.
  2. Stone Vase: After the second slippery slope, you'll pass through a narrow tunnel and drop into another area. The vase is amongst some barrels and boxes opposite where you land.
  3. Strange Fruit: Whilst dangling above Avery's ship, look up and to the right and you can see a handhold in the rock arch ahead. Lower yourself to the bottom of your rope and swing across to it - you'll have to avoid bumping into awkwardly placed rocks either side of it to make it close enough. Climb into the small opening to find this.
  4. Rajasthan Box: Towards the end of the chapter you'll land in a cavern with an eerily glowing cave in the upper walls. Just to the left of the glowing cave is a small slope, and the box is hidden at the end.

CHAPTER 22

  1. Mughal Egg Pendant: About halfway to the ship, swim right and look for a large, flat, light-coloured rock. Below the rock is a cave entrance, and the egg is at the far end.
