In this Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception guide, we’ll help you find the three treasures in Chapter 9 “The Middle Way,” 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 3: Drake’s Deception, 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.

King Bohemond III Coin treasure location

A little way into the chapter, shortly after your fight with Charlie, you’ll drop into a room with a huge stone globe. Turn left and follow the outside wall of the room. The King Bohemond III Coin is on the ground.

After lighting the projector statutes in the globe room, you’ll make a quick loop lighting more braziers and dodging more too-large spiders. At the end of that loop, you’ll open a gate to flood the globe room. From the gate, the Antique Cuff Bracelet is on the wall along the right side. Once the water is done flowing, hop in and swim over to the treasure. Shoot it down and grab it. (If you shoot it before you’re directly under it, you won’t be able to grab it.)

Crusader Fleur-de-lis treasure location

Once you solve the globe puzzle, you’ll climb up a long spiral staircase. At the top, you’ll head into some tombs. Walk forward from the stairs to the wall (where the other three are waiting), and turn left. The Crusader Fleur-de-lis is in with the bottom skeleton.
