Collectibles Walkthrough:

Red Skull 1
Move down from the start of the level until you see a wall with explosives by it. Destroy the wall with them, and you'll find the skull at the end of that path.

Weapon: High Power Shotgun
When you fall from the high up part after pushing the boulder down that was at he start of the level, you'll see this next to the fire pit.

Health Upgrade
Use the ball on that fire pit to reveal a health upgrade.

Red Skull 2
To the left of the main gate is a tomb. In front of that tomb is a spinning fire head trap. The skull is in that circular area.

Challenge: Get the first spinning ball into its fire pit in 00:15 or less
The above mentioned tomb contains a fire pit you must get over by putting a spinning ball on it. You must do it in 15 seconds. A big enemy spawns in your path when you're almost there. Good use of remote bombs can help.

Ammo Upgrade
Inside the tomb, make sure you put the 2nd boulder on the pressure plate and grab the ammo upgrade before you put it in the fire pit.

Artifact: Dark Drum
After grabbing the second key from the big shielded enemy, go down and
you'll find the drum which is hard to miss.

Red Skulls 3-5
These are scattered in the tomb, but easy to find.

Artifact: Clay Serpent
As you continue on, (right from the gate) you'll see a tomb with the relic inside. You can use spears while the pillar is moving up, or you can put the boulder on the pressure plate with a remote bomb, and then use the grapple and detonate to give yourself a rope to climb.

Red Skull 6
Continue on and you'll see some fire bombs launching from the ground. Roll to get the skull when it's safe. This is close to the truck and 2 shielded enemies.

Challenge: Break 2 shields with 1 truck
When you see this challenge message pop up, go forward and you'll see two shield enemies walking towards you. Wait for them to be passing by the truck in the middle, and shoot the tuck.

Red Skulls 7-9
Defeating the final gatekeeper, there are some more fire bombs firing out of
the ground. There are 3 skulls in this area on those specific spots.

Relic: Mask of Capactli
Where you fight the last guardian with the key, check your map. The tomb to the most North requires you to jump and grapple the ring to get inside. You must be careful with all the flames and kill the enemy that shows up. Destroy the spike ball and put it in the fire pit to unlock the gate. Look below for info on a challenge regarding this spinning ball first.

Challenge: Achieve a hole-in-one
You must time it right so that when you destroy the pole above spiked ball, it lands in the fire pit without you having to roll it. This will most likely take many attempts. I personally failed 47 times before I got it. Kill yourself to in the flames to retry.

Red Skull 10
As you make your way around the broken bridges, you'll see this as you grapple the ring and make your way up. Swing to the bridge, and then use the spear to jump up and grab the ledge.

Just found something interesting actually, if you use the rocket launcher against them, they drop their shields. The right hand side one however, keeps the fire walls, so you do actually need to kill him.
