Quantum Break collectibles location guide: Acts IV and V

The final two acts feature even more narrative objects, Chronon upgrade sources, and ripples to wrap up your Quantum Break achievements!

It's been a long haul searching for every last document, email, and radio show across all of Quantum Break's mind-bending story, and we're almost at the end!

As before, remember to turn on your time sight by pressing "Y" when looking for Chronon sources, as they don't appear normally on the screen.

Keep in mind that due to the branching story nature of Quantum Break, specific text and images in the collectibles may change depending on which choices you make.

If you missed anything in the previous segments of the game, don't forget to check out:
