List of Stage 5 secrets
17 secrets can be found in Stage 5 - Sorrow Valley:
- 10 Royal Jelly
- 6 Secret Areas
- 1 key
- We list the collectibles in the suggested order of finding them.
- There is a risk of missing some of the secrets. This can happen if you miss the location containing the collectible and go too far, or if getting to the secret requires additional actions.
- The game allows you to repeat entire stages from the main menu, but it's still a good idea to try and find all the secrets while completing a given stage for the first time.
- The acquired key allows you to open selected cabinets with padlocks during this and other stages of the game.
Royal Jelly 1
This collectible can be found in the first mine and it's impossible to miss, since Abe has to visit this area to obtain a canister of Phatoline.
Royal Jelly 2, Secret Area 1
Unfortunately, both of these secrets are easy to miss. You will be able to obtain them after delivering a canister of gasoline, starting the mine cart and initiating the first crossing through the valley. During this crossing, Abe needs to possess one of the flying Sligs and protect himself from being attacked. It is important to make sure that the possessed Slig doesn't die too soon because they're necessary to unlock access to the collectibles.
Once you defeat all of the other flying Sligs, direct the possessed enemy to destroy the two barricades marked in the screenshot (Abe isn't able to blow them up himself). Destroying the upper blockade will unlock access to the Royal Jelly and getting rid of the lower one will allow you to enter the secret area.
Copper Round Key, Royal Jelly 3
Both secrets are located in the first secret area described above. Along the way, Abe will have to dispose of some Sligs and you will be able to possess them without issues. One of them will drop a key. The Royal Jelly collectible can be found at the end of the path.
Secret Area 2, Royal Jelly 4
Abe can reach this secret area on the way back to the location where the second mine cart ride was initiated. The crossing involves, among other things, climbing a long ladder. During the climb, you will need to jump to the bar on the left that is shown in the picture.
Continue jumping on more bars to allow Abe to reach the rock ledge, which hides the secret area. Here you will find a Royal Jelly secret (and optionally, binoculars).
Secret Area 3, Royal Jelly 5
You will be able to access this new secret area after bypassing the mines and reaching the entrance to the second mine. Instead of heading into the mine, Abe must first explore the lower right path.
Continue jumping to lower and lower platforms to lead our character to a secret area with the Royal Jelly.
Royal Jelly 6
This secret is inside the second mine. It is at the left end of the lower corridor, to the left of the bird portal's location. Abe must walk on his toes next to the sleeping Slogs.
Secret Area 4, Royal Jelly 7
This secret area and Royal Jelly are easy to miss. You will be able to obtain them during the second mine cart travelling section, which involves using a possessed Slig to protect Abe. Just like in the first section, the flying Slig can't die too soon. Their job is to shoot the hard-to-spot lower tank pictured in the screenshot. This should be done from a long distance, because getting too close to the Chant Suppressor will cut the possession short and destroy the Slig.
Destroying the tank will unlock the entrance to the secret area. Once the mine cart ride is over, Abe will have to head to the location.
Royal Jelly 8
This secret can be obtained during the section where you need to avoid being shot by the blimp. The blimp's attacks will destroy and set fire to selected elements of the environment. Abe has to stand in the spot from the screenshot and wait for the flames to consume the wooden barricade. This will unlock access to the Royal Jelly.
Secret Area 5
This secret location is very easy to miss, because the entrance to it is initially blocked. Abe must reach the location where he encounters the snipers and then guide the flying Slig through the obstacle course. After dealing with the snipers, the flying Slig needs to pull the lever to allow Abe access to the snipers' location. Additionally, the Slig has to set fire to the wooden scaffolding from the above screenshot - this may require using the flamethrower for a longer while.
Once the whole structure burns down and collapses, Abe will need to access this location. The entrance to the secret area is poorly visible - it is marked in the attached screenshot.
Secret Area 6
This secret location can be found soon after crossing the path targeted by the snipers (there used to be a bird portal in this location, as well). Abe needs to lower himself to the small platforms below.
Royal Jelly 9
This secret is hidden near the location where Abe must climb down the long ladder. The main character must examine the left area shown in the screenshot.
Royal Jelly 10
The last secret is to be found just before the mission is completed. Abe must first examine the area to the left of the checkpoint after using the elevator and going down. Along the way, you will need to make a few easy jumps over crevices.
