Deadlight Collectibles Guide
About Collectibles:

There are only a few in each scene. Press :back: in a level to help keep track of them. There are 10 Diary Pages, 60 hidden secrets (15 of them are stranger's IDs), and 3 handhelds. You must see a saving icon for the collectibles to count. If you exit before seeing one, then you will have to get it again. I normally suggest just completing the scene to make sure 100% that it will save to your stats. I have also including all of the achievements in the game here, therefore you don't technically have to follow the achievement guide unless you missed something.

ID Card (counts as secret)

Tyger7 08-10-2012 03:00 AM

If you are more about just watching videos for your collectible guides, follow the link below. There is a video for each act. Thanks to Predni for the videos.


miiiguel 08-16-2012 10:09 PM

The videos don't help much I'm affraid, they're so fast and only show the very last image.
Anyway, the guide's nice, but I'm having trouble with "Health Extender 2", can't seem to figure how to keep on top of the moving platform, The guide says "press left stick", I assume that's an error and it's "left trigger" but I'm not sure, since there some other button errors on the guide (sorry if sound frustrated, it0s because... I am).
I checked a few guides which says 100% on youtube but no one seems to go for that one, so I'm not sure if that's needed.
Can someone help ?
How to do it ? or better yet, if it's not needed for 100%, I don't care...

Tyger7 08-18-2012 12:23 AM

You hang off that platform when it moves to avoid the obstacle. It's not needed for 100% but helps of course

COWBOYFRMHELL77 08-19-2012 02:07 PM

Great guide as usual tyger, lot of effort. Just wanted to say for bullet wasters like me that you'll want to hold onto at least on bullet in act 2 scene 10 to be able to get the handheld without replaying scene.

Simlaurel 08-20-2012 10:27 PM

This was an excellent guide Tyger. I liked the way you color-coded the collectables, and incorporated the achievements in chronololgical order as well. Thank you.

Redemption Mode 08-27-2012 11:24 AM

ADenton109 12-24-2012 05:47 PM
