#4 – Archive: Collateral Damage
In Chapter 3 (Jellies), after defeating the first wave of enemies, you have to direct Rocket to use a console that lowers a platform in order to proceed ahead. Once the platform is lowered, Jump on the lowered platform and take a left instead of going straight ahead. Go up the ramp and then take left again to find this on the ground near a crashed spaceship.
#5 – Outfit – Gamora: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
From the previous collectible’s location, reunite with the other Guardians. Instead of going down the main central pathway (near a red structure with big holes), go to the right to find an optional path leading to an opening in the wall. Crouch under and proceed forward to enter a cave. Destroy the goo in the cave (shown in yellow in visor vision) to access a new area. Defeat all you encounter in the path. Proceed onwards to squeeze through a narrow opening. At the end of the cave, you’ll see a purple container with this Outfit collectible.
#6 – Guardian Collectible: Chitauri Sear-Cuffs
This is available after fighting a new monster type called “Slakebeast”. After the fight, you’ll be in an area where you must command Gamora to climb a wall and lift you up to shoot down a reactor hanging from a roof. After bringing the reactor down, command Drax to place the reactor near the ledge that is opposite the wing of the spaceship. Climb up and then jump down to the platform below to find this on the ground.
#7 – Archive: Off the Grid
From the previous collectible’s location, reunite with the other Guardians. Now, command Drax to put the reactor on the left side (blue outline for where the pillar should go), and then tell Gamora to cut the cables above the spaceship (outlined yellow in Visor Vision). This will cause the spaceship’s wing to fall to the ground. Walk up to the left side of the wing to find the archive. It is directly above where you told Gamora to cut the cable.
#8 – Archive: Stupid Job
This is available after unlocking the Ice Element for Star-Lord’s blasters. The player will need to freeze two platforms and then command Gamora to cut through a wall of back pipes. Immediately after, look to your left on the ground to find this. Make sure to collect it BEFORE dropping down.
#9 – Outfit – Groot: Five Horsemen of the Apocalypse
This is available after defeating the two big Slakebeasts. A player has to command Groot to build a bridge to cross the gap and reach the waterfalls. After going over Groot’s bridge, head left and destroy the grey goo. Continue to follow the path inside the cave until you reach a waterfall. Use Ice Element blasters to freeze the waterfall in the cave and jump up to the other side to find the outfit.
