This one may be difficult to spot due to its small size and the icon 
won't show up until you're next to it. The flower is in the Chinatown

northeastern corner of the district among plants.

same hut where the radio is found on a wood crate.

When wolves first appears there will be an ammo crate around, 
the binoculars is next to it.

two-story barn on left side, and head upstairs to get the compass.

in front of the "mountain", enter into a small barn to the left and
find the hat on a cupboard.

To the right of the Tiger Tank is a destroyed two-story house. Go into
a dark room in the 2nd level of this house, the record is resting on 
a shelf.

9.  Sand Castle     {SDCE}

***** The following order is reversible. 

#1 - Postcard
(If you use the left landing pad)

Like the orchid in the Vengeance mission, but more difficult to notice
because its color is similar to the desk. Under where you must defend
Kane is a room with an ammo crate, search the desk across from the crate
to find the card.

#2 - Industrial Drillbit Parts
(If you use the right landing pad)

After you land, go into the first alley on left side to find the bit
beside steel pipes.

10.  Lotus Towers     {LTWR}

#1 - Hamsa

After going up the elevator with a bunch of crows, visit the first shop
on left side to find it hanging on a pillar.

#2 - Taylor's Insignia

When you get out of the air vent into a control room, search the lockers
along left side to find it.

#3 - Hookah

In the area where you fight an ASP, before the riot shield guys, we have
a conference room in the upper level with this collectible on the only
office desk here.

#4 - Wall Hung Carpet

After you push open a container into a rooftop area with markets, go to
the other end of this area. Stop before the 2nd crashed VTOL in this place 
and backtracks a little. You want to get on that broken roof you sees, 
walk to the end and find the carpet under a pipe.

#5 - Decorative Lantern

Before you hack the terminal to face Taylor at top, go back to the other
side of the bridge where you just came from. Instead of exiting the bridge
straight ahead, you exit to your left into a broken elevator to pick 
this lantern up.

As the fight with the Mothership begins, look into a destroyed control 
room on your right to find it on the ground.

11.  Life     {LMLF}

#1 - Promo Poster 
When the mission begins, look for a coffee shop behind you, the poster
is by the front door.

Right before you interface with the gas terminal, look to your left
to spot the part in front of a computer monitor.

#3 - Fulgurite

During the desert stage of the Corvus world, there's a small destroyed
apartment at the left edge right after the blast shield, which houses
the collectible on its roof. The method I used is to climb the white
shield on the other end of the building, and then climb up the balconies
to get to the top. If that doesn't work for you, you can also enter the
apartment, look up for an opening to jump into the second level, stand 
as far out to the edge as you can to give you room for the jump. Once
you're on the 2nd level, proceed to the rooftop to grab your collectible. 

#4 - Raven Feather

During the purging stage, in the very first room right after you exited
the interfaces. Search the reception desk in front of the Coalescence
logo to get the feather.


Nightmares Campaign     {NMCP}

So the rumor about a huge zombie unlock after the campaign is true! 
When you beat the game with any difficulty, you unlocks the "Nightmares"
mode on your main menu: a zombie-theme remix of the Campaign! 

Besides the standard facing a horde of zombies with a small mix of
original campaign enemies, it also has a BRAND NEW STORYLINE added on top
of what you've already played. Plus, you still can grab a new line of
collectibles, in the form of Teddy Bears, at same spots as the original 
campaign counterparts. I'll be sure to further investigate the effect of
completing this new set of collectibles.

Bravo to Treyarch for doubling our Campaign playtime!

The gameplay in this mode however, has a big variation from other modes,
even differs from the normal zombies mode:

- You can only carry 1 gun plus 1 story-related launcher weapon.
- All Mobile Armories are replaced with Magic (Mystery) Boxes.
where you can get a random gun for free.
- You get power-up drop(s) from killing zombies:

  * A random new gun.
  * Max ammo - full ammo to every gun you currently carries.
  * Insta-kill - can kill any common zombie in one bullet / one melee.
    (may have a time limit).
  * A random new cyber core ability to replace your current one.  

Check back later for more updates.
