In this Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End guide, we’ll help you find the five treasures, two journal entries, and two journal notes in Chapter 13 “Marooned.”

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 13 follows Nate after Rafe’s boats attack and he’s stranded on the dark and rain-soaked island. Toward the end of the chapter, you’ll reunite with Sam and discover a(nother) lost city.

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] Persian Ring location

From the opening of the chapter, you’ll be stumbling around the shores of the rocky island from much earlier in the game. A lot of slipping, climbing, and falling later, you’ll try to climb a pitch under a small waterfall. You’ll slip and fall. Once Nate wakes up, you’ll head outside and spot a large waterfall.

Scramble your way over toward that large waterfall — there are plenty of handholds and ledges to get you there. Just before you reach a large waterfall (not the biggest waterfall yet, but big enough), there will be a roughly cylindrical outcropping covered in handholds and tiny waterfalls.

Use the ledges to climb up near the top, but don’t climb onto the top. Work your way to the right — toward the large falls — along that horizontal crack. You’ll find the Persian Ring at the rightmost end.

[Treasure] Wood Tankard location

Keep climbing and swinging up the cliffs until you climb over the top in a cutscene. There, you’ll use your grappling hook to rappel down along the biggest falls and discover a cave behind them. Stick to the left wall of that cave. Just a little way inside, there’s a pair of large boulders on your left. You’ll find the Wood Tankard behind them.

Journal entry 1 (of 2) location

From the Wood Tankard, head to the right toward the middle of the cave. Use the ledges to climb up and jump onto the central pillar. Look over toward the right wall to spot a skeleton where you’ll get this journal entry.

[Treasure] Spy Glass location

From the “No quarter for thieves” skeleton, head to the left. Slide down the stream bed, and jump across to the waterfalls. Climb the ledges there to the top, and follow the water upstream. Just inside the tunnel, the Spy Glass will be on some crates on your left.

Journal note 1 (of 2) collectible location

Keep following the river upstream until you climb out of the river and tunnel into a new cistern. Walk forward, and there will be a skeleton on your left behind some rocks. You’ll pick up this journal note from its satchel.

Journal entry 2 (of 2) location

Right where you pick up journal note 1, look up the cliff face and a little to the right to spot another skeleton and this journal entry.

Journal note 2 (of 2) collectible location

Just after that, you’ll climb up past that skeleton (and take his piton). A lot more climbing and piton-ing will bring you around a corner where you’ll spot some Shoreline mercs. After a lot of climbing, sneaking, and shooting, you’ll reach a natural stone pillar with a grapple point above it. Swing around that corner.

When you land, follow the path, and you’ll come to a ledge. The second journal note is with the skeleton on top.

[Treasure] Dress Dirk location

Climb the ledge to the left of the journal note 2 skeleton, and follow the path to find the Dress Dirk.

[Treasure] Frechen Bearded Bottle location

A bit more climbing and one reunion later, you’ll make your way through a ruined pirate settlement. You’ll drop into a mostly collapsed house, and crawl through a tunnel in the debris. As you’re crawling along, watch for a room to drop into on your right.

Inside that room, turn right, and drop down one more level. Turn around, and duck under the floorboards. Keep to the left, and make your way all the way to the back. Turn right when you hit the back wall to find the Frechen Bearded Bottle.
