In this Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception guide, we’ll help you find the five treasures in Chapter 21 “The Atlantis of the Sands,” 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.

Bronze Man of Nashqum treasure location

Right at the start of the chapter, you’ll be running down some stairs. Keep to the left at the landing, and the Bronze Man of Nashqum will be at the dead end.

Sabaean Alabaster Stele treasure location

After your first hallucination when you chase Talbot and run from the spiders in Cartagena, you’ll end up in the elevator again. Before you leave, turn around and head back into the temple(?). The Sabaean Moon Symbol will be down a couple stairs behind you.
