Map locations to find every red and blue case, the cat, and the bathroom.

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.

In this Astral Chain collectibles guide, you’ll find a map of File 01: Startup that marks the locations of the red and blue cases, the level’s Feline Friend, and the toilet.

Every level of Astral Chain has multiple side missions, a stray cat, and a bathroom to find. Most of them are pretty easy to spot, but not every one is accessible on your first time through the game. We’ll include extra explanation for anything that’s difficult to get to or requires special abilities or Legions.

There are three red cases and one blue case in File 01. They are all part of your introduction to the game, so they’re impossible to miss.

As soon as you take control of your character, run toward the medics ahead of you (and watch the cutscene). Run around the truck on the left. This bathroom is on the other side of the highway divider, so you’ll have to look carefully. You’ll get the antiseptic wipes here.

File 01: Cat location

You’ll find this level’s cat, Kinder, just past the blue case and just before the red case along the highway (after the motorcycle chase). Head to the left side of the highway and circle back until you hear it. You’ll find the cat crouched on the shoulder of the road.

The next level of puzzles.
