Gears 5 Collectibles Guide: Where to Find Act 3 Collectibles
Let’s have a gander at the collectibles in Act 3. We’ve broken the location list down by chapter again for your convenience, so if you just follow the order that we’ve put them in, it should be a relatively straight line from start to finish of the content.
Chapter 1 – Fighting Chance
- Corisku Airport – look immediately to the bar to find an abandoned newspaper.
- Doomed Empire, Chapter 9 — once you’re on the lower floor, head to Baird and then take a right. Once you’ve passed some luggage, you’ll find this Gears 5 collectible.
- Missive to Agent 9 — if you’re hold up in the northernmost corner of the airport, head to the computers and you’ll see this missive on the wall.
- Nomad’s Creed — sandwiched between the two helicopters, you’ll see a tent and some tables set up. Look for the telltale knife.

Chapter 2 – Rocket Plan Collectible
- Hammer of Dawn Command Case — the first control room will have a skeleton by the first door.
