Realistically, you cannot follow a video guide or individual item type list for your "collectibles" run through this game. There's just too many things to watch for. You'll need to follow a sequential guide, and it will most likely ruin the experience, but it sucks to miss one of these bad boys and not know which chapter it's in. The thermos bottles collected will NOT show on subsequent runs through the level, or even when backtracking after hitting a safe zone. If you miss any collectibles, they WILL show on subsequent runs through levels (whether replayed or done in a new story run).

Tyger7 has a great walkthrough available in a zipped doc here:
I recommend using Dropbox or email to send this doc to your iPad/mobile device, so you can play in the dark!

There are 100 thermos bottles.
Dude RainIt's not entirely correct to say "The ones you miss WILL show on another run-through, though."

If you simply replay an episode (main menu -> episodes), the thermoses you've already picked up will not appear.

Sure—I've updated the solution to be more specific. Thanks!

Tatakai no KamiI followed the guide right down to the last deatil, and am still missing one, I think this may be a little glitchy. I really don't want to have to do a third full play through for one damn thermos.

Stupid damn collectibles in games. Why do the stupid developers do it? why? it's frikkin torture for OCD gamers

alpaca777I followed this guide as well, to the last exact detail, and what do you know, I am missing 1 thermos as well, coincidence?

Arj295Thanks for the link, I really hope I don't miss any thermos. This game has too many collectibles for my liking, would be really nice to finish this game off.

Shadow XBLI show 95/100 with all but 4 checked off... I know for a fact I missed one and another is a definite maybe. The other two are ?'s. Still that leaves only 99......... I hate this achievement.

Col Double DI used Tiger's guide and found that I missed Thermos #75 in Episode 5: Nightlife in Bright Falls. It is very easy to miss as the enemy pops out right before another one attacks the Sheriff. Bottom floor of the Town Hall. No back-tracking once you go back outside.

Shadow XBLthe problem with this achievement is if you die after picking up a thermos but before a checkpoint, it doesn't count as collected. That'll make you miss some pretty easily if you don't grab them again.

Zaki HUNMecha Werner is right, DON'T pick up the helicopter key until you pick up the thermos in the next room in Episode 5. If you miss, you have to replay the episode (15-20 min gameplay until you reach it) That was my 100th thermos. I followed Rooster Teeth's guide, sometimes i had no idea where is the thermos...

Sipuli91I wish there was a way to see how many thermoses you've picked up/episode. Currently sitting at 99/100 with no idea which one I missed :(
