In this Uncharted 2: Among Thieves guide, we’ll help you find the six treasures in Chapter 6 “Desperate Times,” part of the PS4’s Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.

We’ve organized our guides by chapters. To find the chapter name, press the Options button and select Load Game from the pause menu. The name of the current chapter (but not the number) appears on the bottom line of the most recent save in the Load menu.

There’s no map in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, so for each of the collectibles below, we used photo mode to zoom out and give you some context surrounding the treasure locations. Use the images to make sure you’re in the right area and the added arrows to help you find your way.

Brass Bird Lamp treasure location

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

In the same square (post-fight), look above the temple doorway for the Silver Dress Clasp.

A little later, you’ll end up on an awning surrounding the tallest hotel in the city. Continue past the window along the roof to find the Copper Rice Measure.

Yuan Dynasty Urn treasure location

As you make your way up to the roof to get the hotel’s power back on, you’ll come to a stairwell surrounding a (the?) caged elevator shaft. Climb the stairs to the top, and drop down onto the elevator car for the Yuan Dynasty Urn.

Enameled Snuff Bottle treasure location

When you cross the wooden bridge to the bombed out kitchen, take out the bad guys, and then head onto the balcony. Jump the railing, and follow the roof around to the left to find the Enameled Snuff Bottle inside an oddly placed suitcase.

Incense Burner treasure location

After you get the power back on and reunite with Chloe, you’ll head to the roof. After some climbing, zip lining, a helicopter fight, and escaping a collapsing building, you’ll end up back on the roofs. Lower the bridge and clear out the soldiers. Look for the red brick structure on the roof when you come off the bridge. Climb the smaller structure behind it (with the water tank on top) to find the Incense Burner.
