How to find Secrets

Secrets are called secrets for a reason. They can tough to spot if you are not aware of them. They can be anywhere on the map and can either be in some obvious spots to being in the least suspected places. Here's how to find these secrets.

Use your Map

Secrets Map.jpg
The first thing you will want to do when starting a mission is to open your map. On the bottom left you will see the number of secrets that are hidden in the level. The number depends on the mission and can vary as some secrets are not guaranteed and only have a chance to appear.

How to Open the Map

Use your Minimap and Check Every Path

You will also need the minimap to help you look for secrets. It will let you know the areas and rooms you have already been to and will let you know which dead ends you have not explored yet. This is useful as you will want to check every nook and cranny in the level to find any secrets hidden.

Look for Interactables

Some secrets will only appear or only reachable after the player has interacted with an object or objects. If you think there is a secret hidden in an area, look around for anything you can interact with. These can range from things that are obvious like buttons to not so obvious like skulls.


Some secrets will only reveal themselves after a certain objective is completed. These secrets are usually indicated by a barrier like a gate preventing you to pass. But coming back later on might reveal it to be open with secrets on the other side.

Use your Dodge Roll

Some secrets are in hard to reach places that are across a chasm and can not be simply walked to. The only way to get to these areas is if you use your dodge roll to jump over these chasms.
