    Here I will post a FULL collectibles guide. You can choose between single act guide or a all in one guide at the end of this solution.

    The game has a total of 206 (PR Timeline) / 201 (Hardline Timeline) Collectibles. In my videos you will see the PR Timeline. The Hardline Time has 5 collectibles less than the PR Timeline and at 1-3 points in the game very slightly different positions (under 5 meters away from PR Timeline, apart from that all other collectibles are on the same position).

    All collectibles are immediately saved if you pick them up. If you hit select on your controller you will see a complete overview of the collectibles. Pushing the X-Button while in the overview will lead you to the specific Act x Part x Overview of the collectibles including a timeline of this act.

    The game has 6 categories as collectibles: Quantum Ripples, Intels, Chronon Sources, Documents, Computers and Media. The game shows you Documents, Computers and Media as "Narrative Objects" if you pick them up.

    I use a lot of spoiler here for a better overview. In the first spoiler of each act is the video, in the second spoiler the timeline by act progress and in the third spoiler are the collectibles sorted by ingame timeline. The (numbers) behind some collectibles means that the next (numbers) collectibles are shown in one sequence without a new start point. Your choices ingame (Junctions) can change the title of some of the collectibles.

    TheOdd101I've got an issue where one of the Chronon Sources in Act 2 Part 1 isn't there when I go to collect it, I've restarted the checkpoint and restarted the level with no luck

    For the ones stuck at %100 without achievement popping up, try opening the Quantum Break on Achievements application on Xbox One. The achievement will pop up immediately.

    --- Update 2018 ---
    By the look at the reports, this solution does not work anymore as of 2018. I didn't try this personally but according to psybOltOn, you can play Junction 4 by choosing the other option that you haven't selected the last time. This will reset your collectables for the last act. Replaying through Act 5 Part 1 to recollect the three computers shall give you the achievement.

    z 4assed monkeyI'm not sure what went wrong for Vitiated1, but this definitely worked for me, so a huge THANK YOU to Elchemion and psybOltOn!

    The achievement does not pop directly after you get the 3rd uncollected email in Paul's office, which made me nervous, but there is a delay. For me the achievement popped just after the elevator ride, when the objective is "Activate the Time Machine" near the end of 5-1.

    z 4assed monkeyCAUTION for those going for the hard-difficulty Time Lord achievement! I employed the Media Baron fix before finishing the 5-3 end game on Hard. Restarting and choice-switching at Junction 4 (without my fucking knowledge or consent) changed the difficulty from Hard to Normal all by itself! I didn't even notice until Time Lord didn't pop, and wound up having to replay all of Act 5 again.

    TirathianIt just popped for me, using the original Game Hub method (I went into the Game Hub via the Store and scrolled across to 'progress') without doing anything in-game - the disc wasn't even in my Xbox at the time.

    Remedy did say on Twitter that it was a server side issue and Microsoft were looking into it, so maybe it's been fixed?

    A COMPLETE guide of all 200+ collectibles with timelinks can be found HERE.

    The collectibles, including 125+ "media" (computer emails, audio files, video files, etc...) are found within all Acts of the game. They can also be seen by using time vision in most instances. Upon picking up the piece of media source, you will be rewarded with the achievement.

    You can replay chapters using the timeline at any point, but keep in mind that changing your choices within the Junctions will add new collectibles for you to collect, bringing your percentage down. NOTE: There are some uniquely titled collectibles depending on your Junction choices, but all collectibles should be in more or less the exact same place; but will have different contents. You can quit to the main menu once you collect them and reach a checkpoint save.

    Lastly, use the menu to check "Collectibles" where it'll show your collectibles for each Act/Part so you can easily keep progress.

    Alternatively, please see this video which is the beginning to the collectibles guide video playlist:


    Upon finding all collectibles, you will have the following achievements:
