Wanted Posters: Secret Collectables Guide
Please Read Important:
Before you read this thread please take into account it does contain spoilers and may ruin the game for you. While collecting these posters you may need to go back and pick up ones you have missed. In doing so at the end of each chapter it will say how many you have collected out of 5. This is normal so don't panic if you pick up all the posters but 2 you already have and it only says you have collected 3 of 5.
It is a rather bizarre collectable system but once you know about this issue there is no need to worry, follow the guide and check from the achievements menu to make sure you have all the posters up until that point.

Some of the pictures we cant see so far this guide is great but are the pics gonna be fixed its alot easier then my prima eguide. thanks again
I did post that right at the very top though just in case you missed it. Sorry about this though, it's messed up all my images but im sorting it out.
Pretty good so far. Im sure youll fix the pics when you get around to it. After its done ill defiantly rate this 5 stars if the rest is as good as whats there now! Great work!
Currently worked out 1 the issues with this for now and i'm also working out a permanent hosting for the images so these will always be visible with no horrid bandwidth issues :D.
Anyhow, back to photoshop I go, don't worry I haven't neglected the main guide either just sorting this out as it's being requested by most.
Great guide, thanks!
Great Secrets guide :) can't wait to play this game
great guide !!!. i have a problem with Chapter 6:
Retrieve Stolen Cattle Side-Quest:Poster 4 any help please ?, i cant find it
even though I had the Eguide your pics and where they were at helped me alot! I finally beat the game 1000/1000 at 9:38 this morning 7/5/09 that's in part to your great secrets guide. thanks alot
Please don't give me fully credit all im doing is providing the images for this, as for the prima guides they should only be used as a rough idea, I haven't yet picked up a guide from their publications which has been perfect. Always full of mistakes and the images are normally useless unless you know where things in the game are.
As far as im aware the explanations aren't from the prima guide but then again I didn't write them.
Just wasted half an hour because of some really stupid desing decision on the game, so I'll post a warning here to prevente the same thing to happen with someone else.
If you get a wanted poster with one character (let's say Thomas), and then replay the level with the other character (in that case Ray), at the end your status will read for example 4/5 wanted posters collected.
I replayed a level twice thinking I missed something or that something went wrong with the game until I decided to give a go with the other character and my final stats were 1/5 wanted posters collected.
Really dumb design decision, if the posters vanish for both characters when you collect them, why the hell do they keep the status screen individual?
So, trust the guide and ignore what the game says when you finish a level :mad:
Well those stats do that but if you collect them all and go back again it will say 0 - 5, its just telling you how many you collected in that level really. It's a rather odd design decision though.
I only have chapters 13 and 14 left to take screenshots of so will have all the images up very soon.
I always play as Ray and already collected 64 secrets in first 10 Chapters. Just grab last secret on each Chapter and exit. Then select next Chapter from meniu and repeat. It works very well.
By the way, great guide. Thanks!
Retrieve Stolen Cattle Side-Quest:
Poster 4- Cant find this 1. Anyone got a little more information on this?
I wasn't sure whether this was before or after using the lift, so heres a slightly different explanation.
Poster 5 - Inside a chest directly in front of you when you exit the elevator ride.
I can confirm with Siegfried that the stats are weird at the end, I had 88/89 when I finished collecting them all. I remembered that I didnt check the last chest on Chapter 13. I replayed it and got my achievement and finished the level to check the stats and it told me I only got 3/5. I already had 4 of the 5 yet after I collected 5 the stats still said 3/5? Anyway the hunting is done and what a pain it was.
This guide was a huge help. Thank you for posting this!!
I'm having some trouble with the last two secrets in chapter XII.It says they're before I get onto the mountain path,but where exactly is hat by your definition?Before the first time you climb up a ledge in this chapter?Because there I couldn't find anything.
Finally I collected all secrets and achievement "Gotta Catch'em All" unlocked! :)
And also thanks to Fizzmatix for this great guide, finally done collecting:)
People having trouble with it saying 4/5 Secrets Found at the end of the mission, I believe it's what ever character you used... For Example; You use Ray and collect 4 Secrets and go back as Thomas and collect 1 it would count 5 of 5 but when you go through it again with Ray it will say 4 of 5.
That's why in personal stats it shows how many you've collected with each I believe.
A few parts are kinda confusing, but other than that great guide guys! Thanks for the work!
