Ace AnnihilatesThis isnt exactly a problem with your guide. But I noticed that me and my friend did a shared story playthrough as our first playthrough. And the collectibles I picked up did not count for him and the collectibles he picked up did not count for me. Im just wondering if both players are intended to unlock a secret once one player has picked it up. Im worried about having to do multiple shared story playthroughs to pick up the shared story only collectibles that the other character that I wasnt playing, is only able to pick up.

Loki97You have collectible 2 listed as "Matters of the Heart", which is the chapter name. The actual name for the collectible is "Top Secret Intelligence Note" (just an FYI). Great guide, tho!

ScorchPSOSeems like Collectible #12 is glitched if you're the host. Tried picking it up several times. Reloading from Scene select and such but will not unlock for me at all.

Guess I need to try a second playthrough as guest and see if it unlocks for me then..

EDIT: Can confirm doing a second playthrough as a guest instead of host unlocked number 12 for me. Seems its bugged for those who are hosts.

Gram101216#20 would not unlock for me, played it multiple times on single player, played it as Brad on shared story, finally got it when I played single player Curator mode and pick up as brad

TangerineGamerIf you do a shared story playthrough can you theoretically pick up all collectables and frames in one go, or are there ones that you can only get playing solo?

Drazer76I’m doing curators cut, and my last ones are at the very end.
Various guides say it HAS to be Brad and Julia that go down the hole to get Fliss to go with Alex.
What happens if Julia and Fliss don’t have a good enough relationship? She doesn’t let her go?
I don’t know if mine is good enough since the start of the game, and they never really interact again to make it better..

Eds Killerbox 7Sometines fliss will say" I'm the captain so I'm going" in which case she'll go with Brad, and julia stays behind. Still plays out the same though.

Bk LuCKY ChaRMSjust letting you all know if collectible 46 12 or 33 glitched on you during your coop run you can get them during your brain playthrough as long as you do it during curator's cut

Eds Killerbox 7Can confirm all collectables are gettable in single player as are all achievements ( except obviously coop one). Some are only in curators mode, but they're all gettable.

MajorityGrain6#46,#12,#33 can be picked in curator mode even if you play as Julia(in my playthrough Conrad got shot escaping early on the boat)
