In this Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End guide, we’ll help you find the nine treasures and three optional conversations in Chapter 6 “Once a Thief …”

We’ve organized our guides by chapters. To find the chapter name, head to the main menu. When you choose to continue your Story game, you’ll see the chapter number and name. (Unlike the previous games, the chapter name is not part of your save file.) In the same menu, you can make sure you haven’t missed any collectibles in the Chapter Select option.

Chapter 6 follows Nate and Sam as they infiltrate the Rossi Estate.

There’s no map in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, 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.

Treasure: Mughal Water Container location

At the start of the chapter, you’ll be following Sam and having a conversation. When you reach the end of the valley you’re walking through, you’ll spot the estate on your right. Head to the left instead, and you’ll find the Mughal Water Container at the far left edge of the cliff.

Right after you pick up the Nephrite Brass Cup, turn left and follow Sam. Just a little down the hill, you’ll get the prompt for this conversation when Sam says, “It’s the little things you miss the most.”

At the bottom of the orchardgrove, you’ll duck into a building, and immediately rappel out of it down to some ruins. After a short walk, Sam will kneel along a cliff edge and ask, “Did you at least take any pictures?” and the prompt will appear for the second conversation.
