The Evil Within 2 guide: Chapter 4 collectibles

Behind the Curtain

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

The Evil Within 2, like any open-world game, is full of things to discover, seek out, find and collect. Some of them are useful, like ammo pouches or locker key statues (those knee-high statues scattered around). These get you something immediately(ish) helpful in your journey through Union. The other things you can pick up are just purely collectible. They’re not useful except to satisfy your completionist urges.

In this guide, we’ll show you where to find the collectibles in The Evil Within 2’s third chapter.

Chapter 4 ‘Behind the Curtain’ collectible locations

The Evil Within 2 Chapter 4 has three files to pick up. To make finding them easy, we’ve included an image of the collectible as you’ll see it in the game as well as a screenshot of the map (when there’s a map to show you).


Files add context to the story of The Evil Within 2. The stories the files tell don’t directly impact the main storyline, but they paint a more detailed picture.


The first file is right on the counter in the North Safe House. Look to the right of the mirror.

Union Growth

Once you get into the Marrow, the first room you’ll come to has a model of Union. There’s a computer on the desk along the wall. The file you’re looking for is the email on the computer.

Expansion and Data Goals

Much later, when you get past the gas leak and the lament, you’ll climb up a ladder. There is another computer with another email in the room at the top.
