Gears of War 4 collectibles guide: Act 2

Gears of War 4: Act 2 has eight total collectibles, spread between three of its four chapters. Here's how to find them all.

1. The Prodigal Son

Anya's Favorite Flower

At the very beginning of the chapter when you take control of JD, walk over the bridge, turn right and look for a gate. Enter it and wait for the cutscene to conclude. You'll regain control of JD outside of the gate. When you do, face the gate and look on the ground to its right. There's a lone flower in a flower pot. That's the collectible. (Note that you can see the flower before the cutscene, but you can't pick it up until after the cutscene.)

JD's Sixth Birthday Present from His Uncle

After you meet your dad and a bunch of robots, you'll regain control of JD just after he hops out of a window. Ahead of you and to your right is a shed. Walk behind it, and you'll see a stack of crates. The collectible is on the far side of those crates, up against the shed.

COG Military Academy Acceptance Letter

Walk in the house, but instead of turning right and heading up the stairs to fight, turn left and head to a room in the far corner of the floor you're on. Turn right when you enter, and the collectible will be sitting on a dresser against the wall.

2. Geared Up

After destroying the helicopter, check the room next to the armory. The collectible is next to the fireplace.

House plans

After the house comes crashing down and you're in the cellar, turn left in the first room, and you'll find this collectible on a table against the wall.

Old bottle of wine

After the plane crashes into the building, and a Deebee keeps saying, "There seems to have been an accident. How can we help?" walk to the left (if you're facing the plane), and you'll find this collectible behind a container.

3. Plan B

JD's old toy figurine

Take the riverside route, and before you turn left to face your enemies, head straight and turn right into a corner, where you'll find the collectible.

The New Ephyran

On the not-riverside route, check in the bed of a pickup truck to find this collectible. If you took the riverside route, just double back before going through the door to the next area.

4. The Great Escape

There are no collectibles in this chapter.
