There are a total of 126 Collectibles in the new Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy game. These collectibles are broken down into three types: Compendium Archives/Items, Guardian Collectibles, and Outfits. Over a hundred different collectibles seems like a daunting task, but I am here to aid in that challenge, starting with the first chapter of the game. This guide will show you where to find the collectibles locations in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Chapter 1: “A Risky Gamble.”
All Chapter 1 Collectibles Locations in Guardians of the Galaxy
For Chapter 1 of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, there are a total of 11 collectibles that need to be collected. The breakdown for this chapter is seven Archives, two Guardian Collectibles, and two outfits. It is important to note that any collectible that is related to the Compendium is missable since your progress is reset upon returning to a chapter via Chapter Select. Be aware that you will need to go through the whole game and get each item or create a new save at the start of every chapter in case you miss any of them. With that out of the way, let’s begin the guide for all collectibles locations in Chapter 1 of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Team Costumes (Archives)
After Peter wakes up from his dream and puts on his jacket, leave his room and go to the right. Enter the first door that you come across, you’ll enter Rocket’s room. You’ll find a device on the ground that you can pick up and get the Compendium entry.
Nano-Resin Incident Report (Archives)
Once you land in the Quarantine Zone, you will need to jump up onto the platform directly to your left. Follow the platform until you get to a yellow container with a similar device to the one you found above. Interact with it to get the Archive.
Rocket: Guardians of the Galaxy 2014 (Outfit)
The first outfit that you will come across in the game will allow you to dress up the loud-mouthed raccoon in the outfit he wore in his MCU debut. Make your way through the Quarantine Zone past the Archive entry you picked up above until you go down a metal slide. Rocket will step to the right and say it’s a “dead end.” Ignore him and go right. You will be able to drop down to the interior of what remains of a cargo ship. There will be a box inside. Interact with it to get the film-inspired outfit.
Pride and Fall (Archives)
From the outfit container referenced above, go back into the critical path and follow Rocket and Groot to the left of the slide. You will duck under a broken door. From here, go left and find the device with the Archive entry.
QZ Disposal (Archives)
The Archive entry is found in the same room where Rocket and Star-Lord begin their game after destroying the first batch of parasites. Walk through what is left of a doorway right past where you shot the parasites and walk to the right, you’ll find the device on the ground.
Ravager Comm Bracelet (Guardian Collectible)
Continue through the ship that you found the previous Archive. Star-Lord will fall through the ground to a lower level of the wreckage. Continue going forward by crouching through the vent on the right when Quill stands back up. You’ll find a pile of the white resin that you shot earlier. Shoot the pile and you will find the bracelet underneath it all.
Failed to Send Message (Archives)
After your first combat encounter, you will need to go up to a platform above the combat arena. The path to progress and reunite with Rocket and Groot will be blocked by the white resin. Before going through it, go to the railing directly across from the resin, you’ll find the Archive entry.
When you make your way into the giant robot head, go into the circular area at the center, where you will find a lot of those parasite hives. Clear them out so you can beat Rocket at the game and then pick up the Archive device in the center of the circle.
Groot: Guardians of the Galaxy 2014 (Outfit)
Due to Rocket being a hot-headed idiot, you and him get separated from Groot. Continue through the rest of the Chapter until you reunite with Groot. Once you get control back of Quill after the cutscene with Groot, go to the right and crouch under the Nano-resin. You’ll find a box like the one you found Rocket’s outfit in.
Spinal Control Unit (Guardian Collectible)
Continue through the ship until you come across the Workbench. Get the Rapid Reload upgrade and continue forward. Peter will fall down yet another hole. After fighting the creatures that attack you, go to the right and climb up some cubes of junk. You’ll find red resin. To destroy this, you must use a charge blast you get from doing a rapid reload.
A Miracle! (Archives)
After the fight where you meet up with Drax and Gamora, have the pair of them help you move a big cube to help you progress. As you make your way through the next room, you will find the last collectible of the level sitting on some metal plates next to a series of tubes.
