Hidden Scroll Locations Written/Video Guide

There are three scrolls for each of the twelve levels and all the challenge rooms, which have scrolls in them as well. Below you’ll find a video guide and a written guide on how to grab them. It was kind of hard doing the written guide when every area is pretty much black, so it was hard to write down specific details. The video guide is in two parts, so I hope they help you out. By following this guide you’ll unlock two achievements:

Of The Mind

Level 1

1 – When you pick up your grappling hook for the first time, you will need to swing up to a vent. There will be another one up top to the left. Go through there, and in the room you’ll find the first scroll.

2 – There will be two guards standing with their backs against each other in a room. You will be instructed to throw a dart at the light to kill them both. When you jump down, head to the door to the left, and inside you’ll find the second scroll above you.

3 – You are told to not go into a door, but to sense what is behind it. There should be a guard patrolling a room with two lights inside. Once he turns around, move in, and kill him. The scroll will be at the end of the room.

Level 2

1 – This is a bit far down the level, a little after you get the firecracker item. Once you get past the area with 2 lasers below you and one going back and forth, up top you’ll run into a guard with two doors by him. You are supposed to use the vent to the right to continue on, but if you grapple up, you’ll find a gong you need to hit. Once you hit it you’ll be in a secret area where you need to solve a puzzle. You’ll notice a switch on the bottom floor, and when pressed, it will release a hatch on the top level. Move the box over that hatch and drop it below. Flip that switch again to bring the lasers back on the lower level and move the box over to the left blocking them. Now, climb up top to grab your scroll.

2 – A little farther after the last scroll, you’ll be outside where you have to deal with a few guards and dodge a few lights. At the end of the bottom level, you’ll climb up and you’re supposed to go inside of a vent leading you to the 15th floor of the spire. Before you go in there, head to the left and once you take care of that lone guard, you’ll see the scroll all the way to left on the second floor.

3- Right near the exit of the 4th floor of the spire on the ceiling. You’ll see a vent just to the left of it with one of the fuse boxes you can smash.

Level 3

1 – After you pick your first locked door, the second floor of that building will hold your first scroll. You need to pick that lock as well, but watch out for the laser inside. Run in and out as fast as you can.

2 – After finding out about the new enemy with a shield, below him is access to the gong to the next level. The vent is at the bottom left corner, but watch out for the two guards by it. Once you hit the gong you’ll be in another secret room. Dodge the lasers and move all the way to the right. Pull the lever there and move up to the top right corner, don’t pull the lever but flip the switch. Move to the top left now so you can flip the switch and lever. The scroll should now be yours for the taking.

3 – When you are escaping the area you’ll have to climb up the elevator shaft. Once you get to the top, there should be an area with four laser systems you have to dodge. In the middle of the room is a vent you need to go down in. The scroll is inside a room with two lasers in it. Now, I grabbed the scroll, but died, however, when I went back to the last checkpoint I still had the scroll with me : ) However, if you have smoke bombs you can move past the lasers.

Level 4

1 – As you are going down a flight of stairs and your companion is following you, you’ll run into a room with the motion sensor, two guards, a dog, and a shielded guard. Take them all out and the scroll is on the bottom left part of the room.

2 – In the gas area when you are in the elevator shaft, go up to the top where the lasers block you. Take the vent, and on the top left and in this room are two motion lasers. Once you hit the fuse box you can leave the room out a window, and once you do that, immediately jump on the wall outside and start heading up. There will be another room with two more lasers, but these will kill you if you touch them. Dodge past them and go into the vent on the bottom on the floor to find the scroll.

3 – This is in the area of the gas vents as well, but it is on the fourth floor on the right side. There is a huge chandelier in the room and all the way to the left of it is a vent. Go inside and hit the gong to move into the secret area. All you have to do is avoid the lasers while flipping switches to help open up your path. The scroll is up top.

Level 5

1 - Once you crawl up the vents, you’ll have to go through a room of guards. After you clear the area there will be a room with a hallway full of those motions with a guard at the end. Behind the guard is a vent that leads to a gong for a secret level. Use the box to block the lasers and use the switches to move the box down. Remember, there are fuse boxes and switches to turn off the lasers for you to move around.

2 – You’ll come to an elevator; Karajan has taken it up so you must find another way. You’ll go through the elevator shaft into a room with a few lasers. On the top area of the floor on the left side is the scroll. The laser guarding it, goes up and down, and there is no way turning it off. As soon as you can, run across, grab the scroll, and run back screaming like a bitch. Or you can jump on the platforms above it, climb on the wall, and creep down to grab it. Either way, that laser will be in your way.

3 – You’ll find this in the area where you are trying to assassinate Captain Kelly. You’ll have to go into a small room with a fuse box to open a door. Don’t go into that door because it will shut behind you. Instead, go up into one of the three vents above you in that area where the last scroll is in this area. There are a few lasers to dodge, but nothing hard.

Level 6

1 – Once you sneak out of the castle, you should be on the roof next to a tall tree. Climb the tree and jump on the roof to the left. Take care of the guard under the search light and keep heading left until you find the vent to go under. The scroll will be there next to the box that is blocking access from below that you might remember.

2 – Right where the dead tree was from the first scroll, you’ll have to go down some stairs. On the last row, jump down below and move the box to the left. Jump down where the box was blocking and you’ll find another box to the left further down. Move that box to the right to block the lasers that are shooting up. Take the box to the right and put it next to the other one. Use them to jump up to the scroll.

3 – Once you are in the catacombs when you have to jump down from the first level, you will notice a box to your left. Move the box a little bit so you can use it to jump up on the ledge, and you’ll find an artifact on the other side. However, to the left of it is a vent that leads to a gong for you to go into. The best way to beat this puzzle is by swinging from ledge to ledge and hanging off them to throw darts at the fuse boxes.

Level 7

1 – You’ll come across an area with two tombs; you must push over to go inside the bottom of them. The first one you take to continue on the story, and the second will have the scroll underneath it.

2 – You’ll be in a large room full of gas and told to ride one of the boxes all the way up. However, instead of pulling the lever and holding on to the box, go up by yourself. The third enemy to the left will have a vent behind him that will lead to a gong. In this puzzle you need to ride the box while avoiding the lasers to reach the scroll. My video guide can show you how to do this.

3 – The third scroll can be found in a room with two boxes and three levers. In the top right corner you’ll find an entry point for the scroll. Grapple across the room to find the scroll.

Level 8

1 – After you meet your first Elite soldier, you’ll run into some stair heading up. Underneath them is a vent that you can take farther down with a few guards and two Elite soldiers. Once you have taken care of them, go through the vent on the left to grab the scroll.

2 – A little bit above from the first one, you’ll find the banner where you can upgrade your equipment. Past that, there is a vent up top where you can find a gong to a secret room. This one requires you to use dead soldier bodies to get past the guards. Make sure to take them all with you on the way down.

3- At the very end of the level, you are supposed to grapple up and move a box over to go into the next room. Go down below the small bridge, and the vent down below leads to the last scroll for this level.

Level 9

1 – Right at the start of the level, there will be a hallway with lasers that will gun you down if you touch them. Go to the next room and head up to the vent. Once inside, move the box a little to the left, that way it isn’t blocking the vent below it. Go back down to that hallway, grapple up quickly and grab the scroll to the left.

2 – Once you get the keycard, there will be a blue door you can open. If you look at the top right corner you’ll see a vent that leads to a gong. Avoid the lasers by pulling the levers and the scroll is yours.

3 – This last scroll is at the top left corner of the map. You’ll see a sleeping dog in the room, and if you go out on the balcony to the left and climb up you’ll find it.

Level 10

1 –After battling some of the mercenaries, your companion will tell you to sense a room. Inside there, it will be full of the hanging bombs. Once you get past that, underneath the floor on the next room will have a weak floor. Once you step on it, you will fall through with a small cave full of traps. Avoid the knives that are thrown at you when you break the chains and the scroll is yours.

2 – Once you grab the tattoo artist, you can head to the next building to the right. Go down into the tunnel area below the building, and on the second floor you’ll find a vent on a ledge on the top left. There is a gong there leading you to a secret area with levers. Avoid the knives and grab the scroll.

3 – In the top area, between grabbing the tattoo tools and jailer, there is a room you can jump into that has two guards and two sleeping dogs. Once you have dealt with them you can grab the scroll to the left.

Level 11

1 – In the room where there are two of the stalkers, you’ll find the scroll on the top left corner of the room. These Stalkers are very dangerous, so set off the pot in the middle that is booby trapped and they’ll come running down to see what the noise was.

2 - Right when you hit the path of the hills, you can jump down the small bridge in front of you. It will lead to a challenge room. The video I made will show you how to do this, since writing it out would not be fun at the moment, but I’ll post something up better for it.

3 – Right after you get the second scroll, you’ll jump down to a cave area. It is up above the first Stalker you’ll see on the first ledge.

Level 12

1 – During the second sub area, instead of going left towards the yellow rectangle on the map, head to the right. You’ll have to get close on this because you need the light of the rail cart to open the path for you. Jump down to the vent before you get run over, and visit the last challenge room. Use your Mark of Serenity to get past the lasers and pull the switch. The light is your friend here.

2 – After grabbing your weapon and heading through the underground sub area, you’ll come a across a guard at the exit point. Kill him and you’ll run up a flight of stairs where there will be a vent on the second pair. The scroll is inside there.

3 – This is right after the second one. When you reach the top of the stairs, you’re supposed to go to the building on the right, but go all the way up top of the left one. There are a few Stalkers, so kill them or avoid them if you want. At the top part of the building there will be a vent on either side where you can take the last scroll of the game.
