Collectibles! The bane of anyone who likes to get 100% in a game. Gears of War 5 is packed with them, so we’ll be breaking them down by each Act and Chapter to help you find them. In this guide, we will show you how to get all the collectibles in Chapter 1, Act 1.
Gears of War 5 – Act 1 Chapter 1 Collectibles
Right as you drop down from the dropship, turn to the right beside the waterfall, and you will find these on a rock just at the edge of the water.
Onyx Guard Challenge Coin
From the waterfall at the start, before you walk up and around the main ridge, take the short path beside it. The collectible is right at the end of the little path.
Wellness Advisory Poster
Head into the level until you come to a destroyed area with a waterfall dropping down into it. Go up and into the darkroom (this is a linear level, so you can’t miss it) where you will find a poster on the wall. It should be easy enough to see, as it will shine intermittently.
Cog Tags: Fallen Azura Gear
Go further into the level until you reach a set of double doors that Jack has to open for you. When they open, go straight ahead into the infirmary. There will be a body on the ground to your right as you enter, with the Cog Tags.
From there, head up the stairs, and take a left into a darkened doorway. Move into the back of the room, and you will find a small office. This is a bit awkward, as the room is pitch black. Keep searching until you find the office, and you will find the Wristwatch on the desk.
Lightmass Missile Strike Authorization
Continue through the level until you reach a well-lit room with a Scion enemy. Wipe out all the enemies, then head to the left of the room and up the stairs. You will find a doorway, follow around until you reach a console with the collectible on top of it.
UIR Hammer of Dawn Blueprints
Get Jack to open the door by going through the hole in the wall, and move straight ahead once they open. In the office there you will find the Blueprints.
And that’s it, all the collectibles in Chapter 1, Act 1 of Gears of War 5.
