All Lunchbox locations in Alan Wake 2

Collectibles are nothing new to the Alan Wake series. The first game’s primary trinkets you would be scrounging around for were coffee thermoses, but those now serve as save spots in Alan Wake 2. What replaces them are several new types, such as Cult Stashes and Nursery Rhymes, but those are more puzzles than pure collectibles. The Alex Casey Lunchboxes are pure, hidden objects that just need to be found to unlock — no puzzles or keys required. Aside from the trophy/achievement you get for finding them all, what they hold inside is more than worth the effort of collecting them. No, it isn’t someone’s leftover sandwich, but precious Manuscript Fragments required to upgrade Saga’s guns. We’ve all lost track of Lunchboxes in the past, so here is where you can find them all in Alan Wake 2.

All Lunchbox locations

Across every major zone you go to as Saga in Alan Wake 2, you can get a total of 21 Alex Casey Lunchboxes. Each one has a few Manuscript Fragments and a little cryptic or creepy note attached for some additional lore.

Cauldron Lake has the most Lunchboxes to grab with eight in total to track down.

  • Head to the Mortar Falls sign in the northern loop on the map after dropping down a small ledge.
  • Go to the Witch’s Hut location, then go left around the back and look by the bushes.
  • Behind the FBC Monitoring Station is a small ledge you can climb up to find the Lunchbox.
  • To the east of the Witchfinder’s Station, you can find a small path of eggs leading to the box.
  • Follow the river from the Private Cabin on the north bank up to where it becomes a waterfall. Look at the base by the rocks for the Lunchbox.
  • Head to the campsite south of the murder site to find a little abandoned camp with the Lunchbox among the items.
  • Head north up the main road from the General Store and keep an eye on the left side of the road for the Lunchbox.
  • At the main cabin, which you need to enter from the back through the third cabin, loot the box from just inside.

Seven Lunchboxes are hidden across Bright Falls, but most are on the western side of the map.

  • Once you cross over the bridge from Bunker Woods, head past a break room and go straight instead of taking either fork in the road.
  • Inside the Nursing Home, go to the office above the Rec Room on the first floor.
  • Out behind the Nursing Home, this one is in the middle of the split path.
  • Just north of the Ranger Station, stick to the left side of the road.
  • Following that same road, this time go on the waterfront and find this Lunchbox on the beach.
  • Just outside the southwest corner of Billie’s Boat Yard is another box in the open.
  • An easy one to spot is outside the gazebo in Baltimore Avenue Park in town.

Coffee World Lunchboxes

The final six Lunchboxes are enjoying the fun of Coffee World.

  • Go as far north as you can go, up to the Radio Tower, and the box is at the edge of the cliff.
  • Before you enter Coffee World itself, take the fork in the road north and find the box near a tent.
  • Going through the south exit to Coffee World, take a hard left and look around behind the giant Coffee Pot.
  • Look near the swing set inside the Lighthouse Trailer Park.
  • Wander north from the Knights Workshop near some parked boats and look between them.
  • Just north from the break room leading to the Lighthouse, this box is in the middle of a little plateau.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II: all Lorestangir locations
Senua in Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

Senua's journey through Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 is mostly a linear one meant to keep you fully engaged with the story and characters. However, there are a few reasons to look for side paths and hidden areas during your travels, and those include the Lorestangirs. These tall totems are one of two main collectibles in the game and each tells a small piece of lore about the world of Senua. Like with any collectible in games, finding them all earns you an Achievement, but they can be very will hidden in this beautiful world. To make sure you get the full picture of Hellblade 2, here are all the Lorestangir locations.
All Lorestangir locations
Hellblade 2 has 18 Lorestangirs to interact with to earn the "Tales of Midgard" achievement. Upon finding one, you will need to focus on it to activate it and light up the corresponding rune so you can add it to your tracker on the chapter select screen. You don't have to find them all in a single playthrough, however, and can use chapter select to collect any you missed the first time through.
Chapter 1 Lorestangirs

There's only one Lorestangir in Chapter 1 and is almost unmissable. After climbing the rocks from the beach, you will follow a path leading straight to it.
Chapter 2 Lorestangirs
We have four collectibles to get in this chapter.

All Incantations and how to unlock them in Hades 2
Melinoe fighting under a full moon in Hades 2.

You can't have a game where you play as a witch without a massive cauldron. Hades 2 places one front and center in the Crossroads, but it isn't just there for decorative purposes. Melinoë can use this big boiling pot of green liquid to bring new features into the game, whether it be between runs or during them, in exchange for various materials like Silver. You will only start out with a few Incantations, but doing more runs and getting further toward your goal of killing Chronos will gradually unlock more to create. There are far more than you might expect for an early access game. Here are all the Incantations and their recipes.
Every Incantation, effect, and recipe
The order in which you unlock Incantations in the menu can vary based on what you do and how you progress in Hades 2, so this list is in no particular order. Also, it is possible there are more we haven't been able to unlock yet, so we will update this list if we discover any more or if additional ones are added during early access.

The best Arcana Cards in Hades 2
The arcana cards menu in Hades 2.

Fitting right in line with the new more magical and "witchy" tone of Hades 2, Arcana Cards have been introduced as a new upgrade system to further customize your runs.

These unique cards grant you new abilities and buffs on whatever run you take them on, but the system isn't as simple as activating them and reaping the rewards. Like all things in this game, you will need to slowly unlock them and make choices about which ones you want to equip and which to leave off. The system isn't as complex as reading real tarot cards, but there are enough of them that it wouldn't hurt to have a little help deciding which ones are the most effective.
