On this page of our guide to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves you will find a detailed description of secrets and collectibles available in Chapter 25 - Broken Paradise. Our step-by-step walkthrough explains how to find all (8) secrets hidden in the 25th chapter of the main campaign.
You'll collect the first treasure just after the first battle with stone guardians. After defeating them, you'll have to climb a partially destroyed ledge in order to continue your journey. Right next door there will be a number of sculptures in front of orange wall. A treasure is hidden on one of the sculptures. Shoot at it so it may fall to the ground.
You'll come across the second treasure when you climb the stairs - for the very first time you have to blow up the resin to unlock the passage.
At some point you will reach a slightly more open space, with ruins in the central part. You will have to battle with mercenaries and then with stone guardians. The treasure is hidden at the edge of the cliff, near the place where the waterfall will be visible in the background.
At some point the weather conditions will change. You will travel in a heavy rain. Prepare yourself for a battle in the water. During this part of the chapter you will come across another treasure. Jump through the ruins located on the unique floor (avoid any contact with the water). The treasure is hanged under the roof of nearby buildings (you will have to turn around to spot it).
You'll find the fifth treasure shortly after you push the wooden cart and climb up to the upper floor. After getting to a previously unavailable ledge, do not continue along the long stairs towards the tower, but explore the path on the right (by looking towards the stairs). Jump over the railing, overcome the ruins and climb the root hanging over the passageway, where you've just fought with opponents. A treasure is hidden there.
The sixth treasure is located in the central part of the great hall, which you will reach as soon as you enter the tower. You will have to fight with mercenaries and guardians once you get there. The treasure is lying on a sculpture, shoot it and collect the item.
Another treasure is hidden in the nearest area. After you leave the grand hall, you'll reach the lobby. After climbing the first section of the stairs, a long corridor will appear in front of you. Just before its end, on the ceiling, another treasure will flash.
The last secret in the whole game is also located nearby. After taking the next two sections of stairs, the you will find a treasure on the floor. Despite the fact that it's lying almost at the passage, it is easy to miss it (due to the rubble).
