Quantum Break Act II chronon source, narrative objects, and intel locations guide

Picking up all the collectibles will expand the story and also let you fully upgrade your time powers!

Quantum Break's second act is easily the most loaded with collectibles that expand the story, tease other universes (Alan Wake fans take note!), and allow you to upgrade your time powers. 

In addition to the quantum ripples and narrative objects found in the previous section of the game, Act 2 throws in Chronon sources (which let you upgrade your abilities) and intel objects, along with a couple of achievements along the way.

Don't forget you can get specifics on how many collectibles are in a segment of the game by pulling up the timeline, which will let you quickly determine what you are missing.
