Call of Duty: WW2 Mementos location guide

As with many other games in the series, this Second World War instalment has a set of collectibles to find in the form of Call of Duty: WW2 Mementos. Nothing is ever easy in war, and finding all these elusive items hidden in Call of Duty: WW2 certainly isn't a walk in the park, so you're going to need your wits about you to spot them while under a barrage of bullets. There are 33 of these Call of Duty: WW2 Mementos in total and if you don’t know where to look then they can be easily overlooked, however finding them will unlock the Pieces of History Trophy or Achievement which is an absolute must for any completionists.

This is why we’ve taken the time put together the following guide to help you find all of Call of Duty: WW2s Mementos. Below we’ll show you the location of each memento, offering additional clues wherever necessary. Oh, and don’t worry if you’ve missed any on your first time playing - you’ll be able to use the mission select to quickly jump into a level and clear them later on. You also don’t have to finish a level before it registers, so there’s no need to play through the entire mission. Without further ado, let’s get started.


1. Nazi Knife
Mission Objective: Ascend the Bluffs

At the far end of the first trench you enter, ignore the steps to the left and continue into the last bunker to find the Nazi Knife stuck in the ledge.

2. Compass
Mission Objective: Clear the Bunkers (3/5)

After clearing out the flamethrower bunker, retrace your steps back past the next bunker entrance to the open area, where another room has opened and the Compass is on a desk inside.

3. Pathfinder Patch
Mission Objective: Destroy the Artillery / Rally with Your Platoon

After destroying the artillery at the farmhouse, go into the barn and look for the Pathfinder Patch at the far end on a bench.

Operation Cobra

4. Lighter
Mission Objective: Get on the Tank

Right at the start of the mission before getting on the tank, turn right and grab the Lighter from on top of the barrels by some soldiers.

5. Pocket Watch
Mission Objective: Reach the AA Gun

After the forest path where you drop into a large open area with the AA Gun ahead, look on the left for a shed and check the desk inside for the Pocket Watch.

6. Gas Mask
Mission Objective: Push Forward with your Armor

After stacking up behind a tank and pushing into the next area, look for a tunnel entrance to the right (after a tank destroys the MG nest) and grab the Gas Mask from the downed enemy inside.


7. Locket
Mission Objective: Take the Church

At the start of the mission you'll approach a bombed out building full of soldiers. Head upstairs and look for a ledge facing the child's bedroom, to find the Locket hanging on a mirror.

8. SS Pin
Mission Objective: Clear the Church

When facing the doorway the flamethrower enemy comes out of, turn right and drop into a small crater to find the SS Pin tucked into a hole.

9. Fuel Canister
Mission Objective: Defend the Area

When you regain control after escaping the Church, go straight ahead down the slope and look for the Fuel Canister on the right hand side.
