Thief Chapter Replay locations guide

Having to replay chapters in Thief (opens in new tab) can be a little tricky, as there’s no option to just select whichever chapter you want to retry from a menu. To give them another go, you have to make your way to where you originally started the mission and enter it from there. This can be a little confusing as they aren’t marked on your map and when you want to replay them, remembering where exactly the start location was in this convoluted layout can be a bit much. So, for replaying each chapter and client job, we've put this guide together to show you exactly where you need to go.

Looking to track down every trinket in Thief? We also have guides for Campaign Collectibles (opens in new tab) and City Hub Collectibles (opens in new tab).

Stone Market 

Chapter 1: Lockdown
When you enter Baron’s Way South from the Clock Tower Plaza and you squeeze through the boxes, the chapter start will be immediately to the right after you come out the other side.

Chapter 2: Dust to Dust
When you enter Mourningside through the back alley of the Crippled Burrick, go all the way to the north as far as you can and the chapter start will be at the gate there on the other side of the graveyard.

Chapter 4: A Friend in Need
In Baron’s Way North, make your way to the west side after entering it and you can find the chapter start at the large gate to the right of the Leatherwood Furniture store.

Chapter 6: A Man Apart
Head north past the Watch Station Plaza and you will come to a gate at the end beside the fishmonger. At this gate is where you will find the chapter start.

Chapter 7: The Hidden City and Chapter 8: Dawn’s Light
Both of these chapters can be accessed at the same spot. When you enter Mudder’s Row from Clock Tower Plaza, go through the crates and then follow the street to the left. Go all the way to the end of the flaming street and at the gate there will be two chapter start points.

South Quarter 

Chapter 3: Dirty Secrets
For this chapter, head to the south part of Barons’s Way South and along the west side of the street will be a red lit tunnel. Go down the stairs there and enter Raker’s Ditch. Go down the stairs and there will be a lever to the right that you will need to pull to lower the bridge. Once it’s down, you can cross over to the other side and reach the chapter start.

Chapter 5: The Forsaken
When you reach the South Quarter, go all the way south to the docks at the Siren’s Rest. At the end of them will be the marker to restart the mission.

On the far west side of the Riverside rooftops, just to the left of the sewers, you can find this chapter start around the corner from the large gate that you need to open by pulling the lever.

To reach this chapter start again, you will need to Baron’s Way North and enter the opening that leads to the Eelbiter’s Squat. Go to the second floor and hop out the window there.
