The Assignment - Complete Collectibles Guide

Note: Safe codes are randomized.

When hunting for Letter Scraps, look for locked safes in the environment. There are several types of puzzles you'll need to solve to open them; a finger print number key puzzle, an alternating light puzzle, and a pattern puzzle.

Collect all eight scraps to complete the hidden letter and unlock the "A Warning" trophy / achievement.

Search for Mobius symbols to find secrets. Mobius symbols are black or red spray-painted markings with stars and a nail. Sometimes these symbols are incomplete. Look for statues to shine your flashlight onto to match the complete Mobius icon.

Chapter 1: The Oath - Collectible Locations

Personnel File #1: At the start of the first chapter, Kidman will drop into a cave after being attacked by a Haunted cop. Down the path, watch for a branching road on the right. There's a chair in the dead end with the first file.

Audio Tape #1: This tape is hard to miss. After leaving the pristine Mobius facility, you'll go down a hallway with a dead body in the center. The tape is right next to the body. Picking it up will trigger the Haunted to attack.

Letter Scrap #1: Entering a well-lit room with lockers, you'll need to move a pushcart to exit. Before exiting, look on the table to the right. Press the keys from thickest blood finger-print to the lightest.

Letter Scrap #2: After escaping the creepy spotlight monster, you'll eventually reach a larger two-story room with stairs leading down to double-doors where two Haunted patrol around cubicles. Before going downstairs, look in the blocked hallway past the windowed rooms. There's a crawlspace here. The safe is on the coffee table inside. The code is written on the paintings.

Audio Tape #2: When Kidman reaches a wall with the Mobius symbol, she'll need to shine her flashlight on the statue on the right to complete the image. The wall disappears to reveal double-doors -- check the back left corner for another red Mobius symbol. Shine light on it until a desk appears with the tape.

Letter Scrap #3: In the bottom floor of the Biometrics wing, Kidman needs to kick down a ladder then avoid blind exploding cadavers. From the ladder, sneak right and you'll encounter a cadaver blocking the path forward. Sneak right of that cadaver to find another ladder. Climb up to find another safe. Light up all the squares to unlock it.

Personnel File #2: Look on the desk in the brain scanner office of Biometrics. This is the last device Kidman needs to use before she can activate the bridge hand-scanner.

Letter Scrap #4: In the massive room where Leslie ran through that's accessed after using the hand-scanner, go upstairs and to the cubicles on the left to find a safe. Continue forward on the left office level to find a light shining on red squares -- follow the pattern and light up the corresponding squares on the safe to open it. Shine your light on the red squares to reveal the correct pattern.

Audio Tape #3: From the same large office room, head down the stairs in the back-right. In the basement, look to the left of the double doors to spot this chapter's final collectible.

Chapter 2: Crossing Paths - Collectible Locations

Audio Tape #4: In the sewers, Kidman will encounter invisible stalkers that only become visible in her flashlight beam. Kill the first in the water, then kill the second in the storeroom upstairs. There's a metal gate you need to open with a crank wheel -- ignore it for now and enter the office door to the left of the crank. The tape is on a desk inside.

Letter Scrap #5: After falling into the sewer and shooting the swarm of Haunted and Cadavers that attack, Kidman will crawl out of the debris. There's a ladder on a pillar to the back-right of the room. Climb up and look on the pillar to the right of the catwalk with your flashlight to reveal a code.

Letter Scrap #6: In the sewers, Kidman will need to collect three plugs to power the exit door. Climbing down from the circuit board, look for a wall marked with a red Mobius symbol. Reveal the secret pipe and climb up the ladder to find a safe. Shine Kidman's flashlight on the red squares opposite the safe to reveal the code.

Audio Tape #5: Following the plug sequence, Kidman will enter a square-shaped sparse room with a long hallway and a drop to the left. Before dropping down, check the yellow barrels in the back-right corner to grab an audio tape.

Audio Tape #6: Kidman chases Joseph to a circular stairwell. There's a save point at the bottom of the steps. Up the stairs, pass the first door on the left to find a secret Mobius symbol. Open it with the flashlight, then turn the statue on the right once. Shine your light on the pointer-like symbol and back up to complete a second Mobius symbol. The tape appears in the small alcove.

Personnel File #3: Returning to the creepy old town, Kidman appears in her family's house. Leaving the first room, go down the hall to the right. There's a creepy shadow pointing, but nobody is in the chair -- instead, there's a personnel file.

Letter Scrap #7: Outside the house, follow the stone wall left to a dead-end gate. This is where Sebastian first entered the statue square. There's a wooden platform covered in crates. Smash the crates to reveal a hidden safe. Light up all the squares to unlock the safe.

Audio Tape #7: Past the statue puzzle, Kidman will crawl through a stone passage. There's a save point with three hanging body bags. The audio tape is to the right of the chair.

Letter Scrap #8: Reunited with Leslie, Kidman reaches a strange room with circular pipes on the left. Check out the pipes in the back of the room to discover the final safe. This is another bloody finger-print puzzle, just press the bottoms from most-thick to least-thick.
