List of mission 12 secrets
In chapter 12, you can find 14 secrets.
- Archives x6
- Costume x5
- Guardian Collectible x1
- Galactic Compendium x2
Remember to collect all the collectibles in chapter 12 in one go. You can't save progress while replaying chapters. This is especially important for costumes - you need to get all of them to unlock the platinum trophy.
Galactic Compendium: Meditation Stone
Note - This and the secret described below require having the Guardian Collectibles from previous chapters. Only then will you be able to find them aboard Milano and examine them to start a conversation with one of the Guardians. You don't need to immediately examine the collectibles delivered to the ship. You can save them for later. Your last opportunity to examine them and go through the conversations is in Chapter 14.
Visit Gamora's cabin aboard Milano and find the Guardian Collectible inside. You will talk to Gamora, and you can play the conversation out any way you want.
Galactic Compendium: Mourning Candle
Visit Drax's cabin aboard Milano and find the Guardian Collectible inside. You'll initiate a conversation with Drax which can be played out in any way you want.
Outfit: Thanos Imperative - Drax
You can get the secret right after the first fight which takes place after you land back on Knowhere. Stay in the location of the fight and look at the yellow metal block from picture 1 - have Drax pull the block out.
Climb the block and then the higher shelf. In the location from picture 2, perform a double jump to reach the outfit chest.
Archives: Knowhere Safe
You can find this secret soon after getting the previous one. Go with the other Guardians through Knowhere, but stay to the left of the areas you visit. The collectible is in the location shown in the picture above, and you need to take it before reaching the large round elevator that goes to the marketplace.
Archives: A Prophetic Convergence
You can get the secret after riding the round elevator, specifically right after reaching the ruined marketplace visible in picture 1.
Go straight ahead. The secret is on the ground next to one of the destroyed stalls.
Outfit: The Smuggler - Rocket
You can get the outfit soon after dealing with the first few enemies on the marketplace. You and your team will reach the narrow passageway, but don't use it.
Turn right and use the wind on the interactive hook shown in picture 1. It'll unlock a small secret location with the collectible.

You can find the collectible soon after reaching the barricaded passage. To make progress in the mission, you must use the wind element and Gamora's help (picture 1) to get to the other side.
Before you destroy the barricade to unlock the passage for the whole team, go straight to the railing, and you will find the secret on the boards (picture 2).
Archives: Reply: Missing Persons Report
You will find the secret soon after locating the previous archives, namely after pushing a big obstacle with Drax and reaching the next part of the destroyed marketplace (picture 1).
In this part of the market, go left and then straight ahead. Ignore the current mission objective and get to the row of slot machines from picture 2. The collectible is on the ground next to them.
Guardian Collectible: Glarnot Mask
You need to start searching for this exceptionally well-hidden secret to the left of the slot machines where the previous collectible was. You can slide down onto a lower platform in the place shown in the image above - don't be afraid that you'll fall into the chasm.
After sliding down, locate a higher shelf, which you can climb after making a double jump. You will notice escaping gas in the distance (picture 1). You have to use the ice attacks to close all the cracks again.
Make the double jump to the shelf only now - the poisonous gas won't hurt you anymore. The collectible will be on a balcony.
Additional note - to get out of this area, go to the right of the collectible's location. Perform a long double jump (image above) and after climbing to the top, expect a fight with a new enemy group.
Outfit: Impaler - Groot
You will be able to find this collectible when you make enough progress in the mission to reach the area shown in the image above. Do unlock the main passage yet, because it would push you further in the chapter. Instead, focus on the left hook highlighted in the image, which you need to use the wind element on.
Stay where you are to use the wind attack, and this time ask Groot for help so you can build a bridge here (picture 1). Use this path.
You'll get to the sewers which will lead you to a closed door. Use a lightning attack on the switch above the door marked in picture 2.
That's not all. You get to a location with discharges, where you need to send Rocket to the ventilation shaft from picture 1.
Wait for Rocket to reach the other end of the site with the discharges and turn off the power supply. This will allow you to move towards him. You'll find the outfit chest by the railings.
Outfit: Casual Kill - Gamora
You can find the secret right after several big fights on the rooftops. You will get to the place from the picture 1, where you should examine the crack in the ground.
Instruct Drax to hit the cracked element, so that a fragment of the floor will collapse and you will be able to slide down to the lower level (picture 2).
Once you're down, don't go any further, but rather turn around. You need to examine the ventilation tunnel from picture 1. It is big enough for Star-Lord to squeeze through it.
Thanks to going through the ventilation shaft, you will reach a small balcony from picture 2 where the outfit chest is.
Outfit: Apocalypse-Lord - Star-Lord
You can get this outfit soon after the long meeting with Cosmo. After reaching the area from the picture above, you must first jump to the lowest level and fight some enemies again.
Remain in the area once the fight is over. Locate the interactive hook from picture 1 and use the wind element on it.
This will expose a red block - locate it and get Drax to start moving it. The block must be placed in the spot from picture 2, i.e. under the upper balcony.
Climb onto the balcony and go to its opposite end. An interactive wall is in the place shown in picture 1 - you can order Gamora to stick to this wall and then make a double jump towards her.
After grabbing Gamora, make another jump, this time towards an even higher side balcony. There, you'll find the outfit chest.
Archives: Investigating the Hand
You can get the secret soon after finding the previous one. Return to the bottom and move on, reaching a new workshop table. There's an interactive platform near it (shown on picture 1) - stand on it and ask groot to raise it.
After the platform takes you to the upper balcony, you will find the archives immediately.
Archives: Work-Related Death Report
You can get the last secret of this mission after reaching the destroyed stairs shown in picture 1, which are close to the workbench.
Go down the stairs and jump over the chasm. Turn left immediately. The secret is in the corner next to the wall and the railing.
