A Plague Tale: Requiem – All Secret Chest Locations

A Plague Tale: Requiem Secret Chest
Tom Bardwell Updated on by

Dotted throughout the 17 chapters that make up A Plague Tale: Requiem are secret chests. Often concealed in hidden rooms or nestled on seemingly inaccessible ledges, these chests contain a bounty of valuable supplies, including tool upgrades.

Early Black Friday deals are starting to go live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Black Friday discounts early, with many more to follow.

Larger and more imposing than the ordinary crates and chests you’ll come across, secret chests are recognizable by the lavish red, patterned cloth draped across the front. Interact with one, and not only will you get the previously mentioned supplies, but these chests double as a workbench. Note that a knife is required to open a secret chest, so we recommend always having one at hand, just in case.

Below, we break down the location of all 10 secret chests in A Plague Tale: Requiem, along with the steps to reach them. Once you’ve found and opened them all, you’ll unlock the Explorer achievement.
