From this page of the guide, you will learn information about exploring the world of Plague Tale Requiem. We've included tips and tricks for gathering loot, replenishing supplies, finding secrets, exploring locations and dealing with rats, among other things.

Loot and collectibles

We strongly advise you to explore all newly visited locations - walk around and look out for interaction icons that may symbolize items you can pick up - Plague Tale Requiem: Exploration - Basics - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

We strongly advise you to explore all newly visited locations - walk around and look out for interaction icons that may symbolize items you can pick up. They are divided into 4 main groups:

  1. Crafting ingredients - Pick up as many of them as possible to be able to craft new gadgets to replace the worn-out ones.
  2. Ready-to-use items - Mainly vessels: you can throw them right away or combine them with other objects.
  3. Ammo - Crossbow bolts are the most valuable (after unlocking this weapon), as they appear quite rarely.
  4. Secrets and collectibles - We've compiled them all in a separate chapter of the guide. Most important are hidden chests that can contain valuable and rare loot.

Note - The game often blocks the option to return to previous locations. This can happen, for example, after squeezing between rocks or opening a gate. Search the location first before continuing with the current main objective.

Freedom of exploration

On the Open world page we explained that the game does not offer full freedom of exploration - Plague Tale Requiem: Exploration - Basics - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

On the Open world page we explained that the game does not offer full freedom of exploration. However, depending on the stage, it is possible to spend extra time on exploring optional locations. You should never skip them, because you can come across all sorts of treasures.

You can also deal with enemies in different ways - look for alternative paths, which will make it easier to surprise or avoid opponents. There may also be locations with items to help get rid of enemies.

Locations with rats

A unique category of places visited in the game are locations with rats - they can be there from the very beginning or appear at some pre-planned moment (for example after approaching a group of opponents) - Plague Tale Requiem: Exploration - Basics - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

A unique category of places visited in the game are locations with rats - they can be there from the very beginning or appear at some pre-planned moment (for example after approaching a group of opponents).

The most important piece of advice is to stay close to light sources - only they guarantee protection from being eaten by rats. You can:

  1. create new sources of light - try to light torches and braziers with Ignifer;
  2. distract the rats - you can, for example, put a guard's torch out or drop a piece of meat;
  3. move around with sources of light - these are mainly torches and sticks (note - each stick has a limited burning time so you have to make it to the next safe place in time!).

As you go through the game, you will also discover alternative methods, such as using prism which can replace a torch.

Do not enter dark locations without checking the area, as rats may suddenly surround the heroes - Plague Tale Requiem: Exploration - Basics - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Do not enter dark locations without checking the area, as rats may suddenly surround the heroes. In Chapter 5, you will unlock Pyrite, which can save you from death after being attacked by rats. Its availability and inventory space are very limited. Treat it only as a one-time save - be even more vigilant once you have used Pyrite.

The Belt Cases upgrade allows you to carry more than 1 piece of Pyrite. We recommend getting it as soon as possible.
