Complete Collectibles Guide (Hoarder + Remember the Fallen)

This guide is the property of myself, the x360a community and x360a.org and is not to be reproduced, in part or whole, without the written consent of either myself or an x360a administrator.

Everything is laid out in order of which you'll find them and also colour coded for easy marking. I recommend you read ahead just in case you miss the section and it gets blocked off or you take the wrong route out of the two given. There may be possible spoilers, so you have been warned.

Key
* - Important note. So please scan the lists first.
Collectable (By Name)
COG Tags
Achievement Unlocked

Thanks.

I just need to get my image partner, so then it can finally get completed and stuck. As with them it'll help a lot.

Gonna try get a video for them all added as well. This way I'll be pleasing all parties, as some like written and others visual (some both!).

Looks good overall, just one tiny problem:

I'm sure Baird would have some kind of sarcastic, insulting comment for you about getting his name wrong.

Excellent guide! I only managed to find 5 collectibles and a couple of dog tags on me own, never would of thought to turn around in the first chapter or that there would be one in the prologue

Thanks to this guide I only need 4 COG tags and a handful of collectibles and I'm done

This is an great guide without pics or videos better than that other one floating around with loads of pics (I found that one to be less clear), and once it gets the vids it'll be awesome
