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 may look like a daunting task, but I am here to help, with this guide being the twelfth entry in a series covering all the collectibles in the new adventure game. Here, we will cover Chapter 12. This guide will show you where to find the collectibles locations in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Chapter 12: “Knowhere To Run.”
All Chapter 12 Collectibles Locations in Guardians of the Galaxy
For Chapter 12 of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, 14 collectibles need to be collected. The breakdown for this chapter is two Compendium Item, six Archives, one Guardian Collectible, and five 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. Make sure that you 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 12 of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
To start, there are several items that you will collect in this chapter that is dependent on collecting them in previous chapters. These items are the Meditation Stone and Mourning Candle. Links to the guides for the previous levels can be found at the bottom of this article.
Meditation Stone (Item)
The Stone can be found in Gamora’s room and had to have been collected in Chapter 10. Go there and interact with the item. This will also start a conversation with Gamora. Once the interaction is done, the Stone collectible will be added to your item collection.
Mourning Candle (Item)
The Candle can be found in Drax’s room and had to have been collected in Chapter 10. Go there and interact with the item. This will also start a conversation with Drax. Once the interaction is done, the Candle collectible will be added to your item collection.
Drax: Thanos Imperative (Outfit)
Once you return to Knowhere and get through the first fight on the landing pad, there is a crate that you can have Drax move. Have him pull it out and climb up on it and the structure above it to find the outfit.
Knowhere Safe (Archive)
Continue down the critical path on the landing pad. The Guardians will comment about Cosmo’s tower and you will see a piece of waist-high cover you will need to mantle over. The Archive collectible can be found on a yellow box before the piece of cover to the left.
A Prophetic Convergence (Archive)
Go down the elevator from the landing pad and right in front of you there is a circular device. The Archive collectible is found in the middle of it.
Rocket: The Smuggler (Outfit)
After the combat encounter in the market and to the right of the space you need to squeeze through to progress, you will need to use the Wind Element to pull down a weak wall. The collectible outfit is behind it.
Egghead Reviews: That’s More Like It (Archive)
From the last collectible, progress through the mission until you reach Mantlo’s Bar, or what’s left of it (Rocket will be upset about it). You will need to pull down a wall to let the other Guardians through. Facing the wall that you need to pull down, turn left and you will find the Archive collectible on some pallets.
Reply: Missing Persons Report (Archive)
Progress through the chapter until you find a set of wires that you need Gamora to cut. Go to the left from the wires to where the Collector’s Emporium was once at and you will find the Archive collectible in front of a vending machine.
Glarnot Mask (Guardian Collectible)
Go to the left of the last Archive collectible and slide down the ramp. Do a little jumping and plug the holes that are leaking poison gas and you will find the Mask collectible.
Groot: Impaler (Outfit)
Go back up to the wires and have Gamora cut them. You will need to shimmy across a ledge and then will be told to help Drax move an obstacle. Before doing that, go to the left of the big yellow cube next to the debris. You will see a wall that you can grab with the Wind Element. Pull down the wall and have Groot build you a bridge to get across. Use the Electric Element Shot to open the door and then have Rocket deactivate the electricity that is in the water blocking the way. The collectible outfit will be found on the right side of the platform.
Gamora: Casual Kill (Outfit)
Continue through the chapter until you have to tell Drax to punch a hole in the ground. Take the slide down and when at the bottom turn around to find another hole that you can crawl through. The collectible outfit will be found at the end of the tunnel.
Star-Lord: Apocalypse-Lord (Outfit)
After you help Cosmo and go down to the combat encounter, you will need to pull down a wall with the Wind Element. You will find a box that Drax can carry behind it. Take it to the platform on the left, then once up on the platform, have Gamora help you up to another level to the right. You will see the crate with the collectible outfit right in front of you.
Investigating the Hand (Archive)
Go back down to the platform that you were on before Gamora threw you up. Go to the path on the right and go past the workbench. Have Groot lift you up on the platform covered in vines and you will find the collectible Archive on a box right where you jump off.
Work-Related Death Report (Archive)
Go back down to the platform below, back past the workbench, and go right. You will need to jump some missing stairs. When you get across the hole, go to the left and you will find the collectible Archive.
