If you buy something from a Polygon link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

In Polygon’s Uncharted 2: Among Thieves treasure guide, we’ll help you find every collectible in every chapter of the game, which is part of the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4.

There’s no map in Uncharted 2, which makes pinpointing the location of each treasure more difficult than it otherwise would be. So we used photo mode to zoom out and give you some context surrounding each treasure’s location. Then we added arrows to help you find the precise location.


Table of contents

We’ve organized our Uncharted 2 treasures guide based on chapters, but we fully admit that their names are difficult to find. To find out what chapter you’re in, press the Options button and select “Load Game” from the pause menu. The name of the chapter (but not the number) appears on the bottom line of the Load menu’s most recent box.

A handful of chapters don’t have treasures. So those chapters are (technically) “missing” from the list below, but that’s only because there’s nothing to write about in them.


Chapter 1 “A Rock and a Hard Place” treasure locations

There are five treasures to find in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Chapter 1 “A Rock and a Hard Place.”

Wrathful Deity Statue treasure location

Some more climbing will bring you to a wall where you’ll use Flynn’s rope and some pipes to climb. Instead of climbing up, drop down to the long (architectural) ledge that runs around the corner. Follow it around, and you’ll find the Ottoman Bracelet in the pipe. Just make sure you drop straight down onto the pipe or you’ll fall to your death.

Antique Pocket Watch treasure location

Look to the left of the tree, and climb onto the fallen log there. Shoot the Yuan Dynasty Coin out of the tree (above the in-the-wrong-hemisphere toucan).

As you continue forward, Chloe will say you’re getting close to the excavation site. After another quick fight, you’ll climb up a wooden wall. Continue climbing to the very top and shuffle over to the right (toward a couple more wildly-out-of-place toucans). Follow another fallen log to a stream, and then follow that to its end. The Jade Pei Pendant is on some logs there.

Amber Jade Chimera treasure location

This one is a bit hard to explain, so we’ve included a video above for reference.

A little later, you’ll lose your gun and have to fight several soldiers by hand in some water. After the fight, you’ll climb a rope out of the pit where you fought. At the top of the rope, turn right (instead of following Sully). Jump the gap, and follow the path around the rocks. Immediately after the rocks, climb the handholds on your left. Jump across to the poles, and swing over to the wooden beam. Cross the beam to the right, and then turn left. Jump the gap again, and follow the path to pick up the Amber Jade Chimera.

After the fight at the beginning of the level, you’ll end up in Lazarevic’s hut/office, where you’ll see a cutscene and have another fight. Once that’s all done, look out toward where Sully is waiting. There is a shipwreck there with a tall mast and tattered sails. The Mongol Paiza Passport is in the crow’s-nest near the top. Shoot it down.

When you get back down to street level, you’ll be standing next to a blue car. Head to the right into the dead end alley. Drop through the open manhole, and the Strange Relic will be behind you in the sewer.

After the firefight at the beginning of the chapter, head back to the square. Look for the truck where the soldier with the RPG was. Directly in front of it, there’s a streetlamp. The Brass Bird Lamp is at the very top, but you can’t shoot it down, so you’ll have to climb.

Silver Dress Clasp treasure location

Climb across to the third drum — the one farthest from where you entered the temple.

The room after the drums is full of huge gears. As you maneuver through them, you’ll end up jumping from a horizontal gear to a hanging rope. On the rope, swing to the right to find the Dipa Oil Lamp on a ruined wall. You can grab it while swinging, so don’t jump off the rope.

After you pull the second lever and climb down the ladder to a new gear-filled area, you’ll do a lot of platforming and climbing. On the far side of the room from where you entered, there’s a huge gear set into the wall. When you get to the far side — the side going up — ride this gear to the top, and hop off onto the beams. Cross the beams to other side of the room. You’ll be over where you entered the room at this point. The Bronze Dorje is on a small platform here.

These treasures are tricky since you’re going to be collecting them during a huge firefight. From the start of the chapter, fight your way forward until you get pinned down by a machine gun emplacement on the left side of the street. Across from the machine gun on the right side, there’s a building with a hay loft on the roof (and there’s an RPG up there, too). The Amber Skull Bead is near the bags in the hay loft.

Antique Ghau treasure location

Keep pushing forward until you reach a door Tenzin opens for you. Climb all the way up to the roof, and take out the soldiers below from the rooftops. When things settle down, head back to the first roof (it’s the one with a red wooden trapdoor). The Antique Ghau is below you on the left.

Bell Thogchag treasure location

Still on the rooftops, look off to the right from where you came up. You’re looking for a blue pergola (or maybe an arbor?). The Bell Thogchag is under it.


Chapter 20 “Cat and Mouse” treasure locations

There are four treasures to find in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Chapter Chapter 20 “Cat and Mouse.”

Yak Horn Carving treasure location

Near the beginning of the chapter, you and Tenzin will duck across in front of the tank, and fight your way through a building. On the other side, you’ll climb some wooden stairs and have another fight. The Yak Horn Carving is along the right side before you climb the wall.

Bronze Tsongkhapa Statue treasure location

After dodging the tank for a bit, and crossing the street several times, the tank will crash through a wall right next to you. Past that, you’ll fight your way along a path parallel to the main road. The Bronze Tsongkhapa Statue will be on the left.

Tibetan Trumpet treasure location

Just after that, you’ll use a narrow ledge along the cliff’s edge to continue along. After the tank drunkenly crashes above you, you’ll round a corner on some roofs. The Tibetan Trumpet is on the low roof with the red door as soon as you go around the corner.

Gilt Tara Statue treasure location

A lot more running and fighting will bring you up to the rooftops with Tenzin and some RPGs. After your first shot, you’ll run to another rooftop and another RPG. Just past this second building (or on its roof), turn away from the road and look for a short alley. The Gilt Tara Statue is on the stone wall in that alley.


Chapter 22 “The Monastery” treasure locations

There are eight treasures to find in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Chapter 22 “The Monastery.”

Tibetan Silver Earring treasure location

As the chapter opens, you’ll climb a cliff up to a staging area with several trucks and lots of boxes (and a few soldiers). Facing away from the cliff edge, look to the left. The Tibetan Silver Earring is over the huge doors. Shoot it down to collect it.

Ritual Crown treasure location

You’ll (try to) sneak into the next area across a broken bridge and through a pair of red doors. After that, you’ll have a big, drawn out firefight with a lot of soldiers. Don’t worry about the treasure until Elena gives you the all-clear.

Backtrack, and put your back to those first red doors. Head to the right past the burning barrel and drop off the edge. There’s a small red beam below you and to the right where you can grab the Ritual Crown.

Silver Official Seal treasure location

Deeper into the area where you had the huge fight, head to the machine gun emplacement (you’ll need to go this way to meet Elena). Look back toward the entrance, and then turn to the wall on your right. Use either of the door-shaped hole to hang over the river, and climb to the middle to find the Silver Official Seal along the wall.

Silver Offering Pot treasure location

After you and Elena open another set of doors, you’ll do a lot of precarious climbing. Eventually, you’ll spot Schafer and the bad guys crossing a bridge. Right after you spot them, Elena will take off up the stairs. When you jump the first gap, drop down to the right to find the Silver Offering Pot on a ledge.

Tibetan Turquoise Ring treasure location

A little more platforming will bring you to a locked door. As you climb and jump to look for another way around, you’ll work your way to the left side of the tower. The Tibetan Turquoise Ring is tucked under the small awning to your left. You’ll have to drop down to the platform below it and shoot it down.

Carved Wooden Ghurra treasure location

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ‘The Monastery’ treasure locations guide

During your stealthy infiltration of the monastery, you’ll come to two large towers full of soldiers and a bridge between them. When your entrance becomes less subtle, you’ll end up in a fight as you cross the bridge. At the far end of the bridge, climb down on the right side and underneath to find the Carved Wooden Ghurra.

Bronze Tiger Bell treasure location

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ‘The Monastery’ treasure locations guide

In that same area (the same fight, really), you’ll climb to the top of the second tower and use some sniper rifles to deal with enemy snipers and soldiers crossing a (different) bridge toward you. After they’re all dealt with, drop all the way back down to the bottom of the tower. Head outside toward the bridge — you’ll be well below it.

You need to jump to the platform on the bridge support, but it’ll seem like it’s just out of reach. As you’re running, wait until Nate has fully stepped off the platform before you hit the button to jump — it’s a bit of video game physics trickery. Once you reach the platform, climb down both ladders and look up. Shoot the Bronze Tiger Bell to knock it loose.

Antique Bronze Lion treasure location

After the bridge (and the bridge collapse), you and Elena will head into the monastery. There will be a big fight in the courtyard, and then you’ll duck through another red door. A lot of climbing later will bring you to a hallway full of bad guys and a stairway that leads to nowhere. Handle the soldiers first, and then head to the far end of the hall. Climb the furniture to reach a platform above the doorway. Shoot down the Antique Bronze Lion from above the window, and jump across to collect it.


Chapter 23 “Reunion” treasure locations

There are nine treasures to find in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Chapter 23 “Reunion”

Tibetan Ritual Vase treasure location

At the beginning of the chapter, you’ll have a long firefight as you climb up to where Schäfer is being held. After a cutscene, you’ll work your way to a rope in the middle of the room. Swing over to the pillar on the left to pick up the Tibetan Ritual Vase.

Tibetan Conch Horn treasure location

A bit of climbing and throwing people off of various roofs will bring you to a courtyard where you spot soldiers firing at some yetis. Once all the soldiers are dealt with, head up the stairs. At the first landing, turn left and jump back across the staircase to the roof on the other side. Pick up the Tibetan Conch Horn in the corner.

Bronze Oil Lamp treasure location

From there, you’ll go through a one-way door to a ruined courtyard with two heavy weapon soldiers (and then a bunch of regular soldiers). Once it’s safe, head into the courtyard and look back toward where you came in. A the top of the courtyard on the left, the Bronze Oil Lamp will be on a pillar near the roof. Shoot it down, and then backtrack to the ladder near where you entered to retrieve it. (This is also the path you’ll follow to find your way out of this courtyard.)

Ancient Sword Guard treasure location

As soon as you climb through the window, you’ll be able to see the Ancient Sword Guard along the ceiling to your right. Shoot it down.

Up the stairs, Nate will head out to the rooftops. You’ll climb to the right across a wall and see some soldiers below you. The Tibetan Coral Earring is under the eaves at the end of that climb. Drop down to the sloped roof so you can shoot it down.

Tibetan Square Ghau treasure location

From there, you’ll swing across some poles and climb up to another roof. Look below you along the main building for a statue. Hang off the eave to retrieve the Tibetan Square Ghau.

Carved Bone Ornament treasure location

After you climb into the tower, reclaim the dagger from Chloe, and solve the puzzle (by matching the shapes, colors, and symbols in the notebook), you’ll ride a zip line down toward the secret entrance. You’ll jump a gap and head up some stairs. When you jump the gap in the stairs, turn around. Look up to the light fixture on the ceiling, and shoot down the Carved Bone Ornament. (You’ll have to jump back to the lower section of stairs to pick it up.)

Tibetan Hair Ornament treasure location

When you reunite with Elena, you’ll have a big firefight near the secret entrance. After the fight, stand at the entrance and look for the headless statue nearby — you were facing it when you started the fight. Shoot the Tibetan Hair Ornament off the top. Climb up the back side of the statue, and jump over the top to pick it up.

Tibetan Mala Beads treasure location

Another zip line will bring you to another courtyard and another firefight. After the soldiers are finished, head to the bottom of the stairs. Turn left, and you’ll find the Tibetan Mala Beads in the corner behind a pillar.

This final chapter starts with a lot of running, getting shot at, and cutscenes. At the bottom of Shambala, once you pick up all the ammo you can (and realize it’s mostly useless), you’ll take on three of the locals. From there, you’ll head into a room lined with statues. The Phurba Thogchag is on the second statue along the left side.

Clay Yamantaka Head treasure location

Once you’ve climbed and jumped your way out of that first arena, you’ll make a discovery about the blue tree sap. In the hallway that opens, look along the left side at the far end for the Clay Yamantaka Head.

Gold-leaf Statue Head treasure location

Some climbing, swinging, and several exploding tree roots later, you’ll come back outside. Drop down from the first balcony, and turn right. Head all the way out to the cliff edge — there’s also an M4 out here. The Gold-leaf Statue Head is down the stairs on the right near the doorway(?).

Fibula Thogchag treasure location

After a huge firefight, the three of you will get through a door and drop into an aqueduct (full of water and enemy soldiers). Clear out all the soldiers, and then head to the first set of stairs along the waterway. The Fibula Thogchag will be along the roofline on the left side.

Unusual Bronze Mask treasure location

After the waterway and another quick firefight, you and Elena will push a cart to reach a ledge. As you’re climbing up, look off to the right. The Unusual Bronze Mask is on top of a branch across the courtyard. Clamber over to it and pick it up.

As you climb several flights of stairs through the temple, stick close to the outside (left hand) wall. On the landing that has a huge tree root across it, you’ll find the Bronze Statue Head behind some rubble (it’s very hard to spot if you’re not looking for it).
