The University - Go Big Horns!

Comic #9: Free Radicals
From the chapter start, turn around and head up the road. You'll find a comic on the hood of a car up here.

Artifact #58: Sniper's Nest Log
When you enter the campus grounds, look for this large multi-layered building. Enter and head to the top floor to exit onto a balcony. You'll find this artifact out there, along with some supplies.

Firefly Pendant #20
After jumping over the first barricade and ascending the stairs, turn right. Just a few feet ahead, you'll find another pendant dangling from a tree.

Artifact #59: Wall Panel Note
Make a right after leaving Ellie with Callus to find the flamethrower. Just beyond it, you'll find this pinned to the wall next to a circuit box.

Firefly Pendant #21
Just before leaving the central grounds, look for this damaged window. You can pull yourself into a small room here, where you'll find another pendant atop a table.

Training Manual #9: Health Sterilization
When you reach the fountain, take a right to find a building you can enter. Head up the stairs and hop out onto the roof. Enter the window to your left, and you'll find a manual atop a desk in this room.

Artifact #60: UEC Campus Map
After ducking into the dormitory, head straight ahead to find this lying across a counter.

Artifact #61: Student's Journal
Head upstairs and enter the second door on the left. Doing so will partially block a drawer behind the door. Open it to find another artifact.

Firefly Pendant #22
To obtain this pendant, you must kill the Bloater in the spore filled area. He'll drop it upon defeat.

Artifact #62: Newspaper Clipping
When you return to the second floor of the dorm, make a right out of the stairwell and enter the first door on your right. Make a left inside the dorm room to find this atop a mini-fridge.

Artifact #64: Fungal X-Rays
After emerging from the tented hallway, make a left. You'll find these on a counter near the window.

    Also in Bill's town there is a safe across the road from the marquis music store, next to a pickup truck is there a collectable for that as well? (it does say need combination in red when you get close to it)

    Just some ammo and crafting supplies inside - nothing significant.
  • TheIcemanCometh - June 22, 2013 10:28 a.m.

    There are a couple of discrepancies in the list. For Firefly Pendant #28, you have the same picture as you do for Firefly Pendant #27 instead of the one where the pendant hangs from the light fixture. Also, for Training Manual #12: Bomb Shrapnel, I did not run into any Bloaters in this section. I was playing on Normal, so I don't know if that is the reason why or not.

    Thanks for pointing that out, Ice! We'll be sure to fix that.
  • mediumvillain - July 15, 2013 1:08 a.m.

    Still not fixed. And theres' s something missing somewhere, cuz I only missed one artifact according to this guide, on my + playthough (got it the 1st time) but I'm 10/12 for this level. The only one's im missing.
  • Tony Wilson - July 15, 2013 7:14 a.m.

    You've got 10/12 for Bus Depot?
  • mediumvillain - July 17, 2013 9:57 p.m.

    That was a mistake, its Lakeside Resort that was 10/12 and I couldn't find which I was missing via this guide cuz I collected all that were listed.
  • Tony Wilson - July 17, 2013 11:07 p.m.

    The 10/12 thing is actually pretty common. Make sure you examine them all too. In the case of Ellie's backpack items, she makes remarks about most items in there.
