This solution will list only the locations of the various weapon pieces in the game. There are many other chests, collectibles, boons, and XP rewards to find, but I will only be listing the weapon pieces here. They are listed by Chapter for easy reference, with a description of how to find/obtain it. I will also list all Treasure Clues as there seems to be little way of determining which clues lead to which treasures. Collectible costume pieces and their locations are listed in my solution for that achievement.

***Important note***
If you, at any point, use the Reload Checkpoint option from the pause menu, be sure to go back and check the last collectible you picked up or the last bonus objective you completed, etc. The game has a really crappy checkpoint system and does not always save the last thing you did. Also, if you happen to miss a weapon piece, DO NOT use Chapter Select to go back and get it until AFTER you have completed your playthrough. If you do, it will reset your difficulty achievement progress for all previous Chapters.

Chapter 1: Cyprus - 1 weapon piece

Executioner Sword
-When you arrive at the hilltop estate, get the Bonus Objective to save the nobleman by talking to the wounded soldier in the courtyard. Follow the blue marker through the archway, kill the enemies, then open the chest in this area to get the Executioner Sword.

Chapter 2: Misty Forest - 2 weapon pieces

Commander's Sword
-After killing the Beast, continue on until you circle back around to the Forest King Tavern for a second time. Go inside to receive the Commander's Sword from the innkeeper.

Commander's Shield
-Leave the Forest King Tavern and follow the gold marker until you get ambushed. Use RB to reveal a trail and follow the tracks to a cemetery. Examine the dead Templar and pry the Commander's Shield from his cold, dead hands.

Chapter 4: City of Acre - NO weapon pieces

Chapter 5: Acre Tunnels - 1 weapon piece

Whispering Daggers
-A short ways into the Chapter you will reach the first Memorial Hall. You can't miss this room because you need to go through it to advance through the Chapter. It's also a part of the Bonus Objective to light the Memorial Flames. After lighting the flame in front of the tomb, go around back of the tomb to open a chest containing the Whispering Daggers.

Chapter 6: Siege of Acre - NO weapon pieces

Chapter 7: City of Ascalon - 2 weapon pieces

Rogue Scabbards
-After escorting the villager to all three burning houses, continue on through the gate and accept the Bonus Objective to escort the villagers. Defeat the waves of enemies and follow the blue marker to spot a chest containing the Rogue Scabbards.

Hunting Scabbards
-This weapon piece is missable if you do not complete the Bonus Objective to follow the Hashishin to the treasure room without being detected.
-After escorting the villagers, follow the gold marker until you overhear 2 Hashishin talking about their treasure. WAIT until the blue Hashishin leaves, then sneak down and kill the red guy. Follow the blue guy at a comfortable distance while sneaking. Whenever you have a choice of paths, always take the path with a no guards or a lone guard and silent kill him. When the blue guy reaches the barred door of the treasure room at the end of the path, you can go wild and kill everyone. The chest inside the treasure cave contains the Hunting Scabbards. If you are detected at any point, or kill the blue guy before he reaches the treasure cave, you will not be able to open the door.

Follow the gold mark to a large ruined building on the left. Continue to the end of the ruined building and use RB to reveal a breakable wall. Examine the skeleton on the wall for the 1st clue. Leave the room and head right, back to the beginning of the ruined building and look for a big broken statue head on the left. Examine it to get the second clue. Follow the gold marker uphill to the broken bridge and back down to the swamp. Go up the wooden ramp into the abandoned fort and examine the well for the 3rd clue.
