There are 72 collectibles to find in The Quarry. These include clues, evidence, and tarot cards. Some are easy to find, lying right in your path, but others are harder to uncover, requiring you to take one path or another. There are seven trophies/achievements associated with these hidden items, and you must get all collectibles of a type in a single playthrough for them to pop.
- Decked Out: Found all tarot cards.
- Forewarned if Forearmed: Got a tarot reading.
- Meddling Kids!: Collected all clues.
- It’s All Coming Together: Found a matching clue.
- What’s This?: Collected first clue.
- Conspiracy Theorist: Collected all evidence.
- The Truth is Out There: Collected first piece of evidence.
The rub is that you can’t get all of the collectibles in a single playthrough. You must make a choice in Chapter 2 that gives you either two clues or a tarot card. You’ll need to finish two playthroughs (the second starting from Chapter 2 at least), and essentially save everyone for most of the game. Certain deaths can lock some collectibles.
This guide is written to avoid as many spoilers as possible, though some will be necessary to properly explain locations. You’ll only need to search for collectibles in the prologue and subsequent 10 chapters; there aren’t any to find in the epilogue.
The Fool Tarot Card: Eventually, Laura will want to investigate something in the woods while Max does something else. Choose either dialog option as Laura, and enter a small ravine. Turn left immediately to go between the embankment and a small hill in the ravine with a broken tree stump. As you walk through, the camera will shift.
Harum Scarum Poster: This is on a tree on the right side of the ravine in the woods, just after the Tarot Card. Go diagonally right toward where the path turns right, and the button prompt should appear near the embankment.
Escapology Trunk: From there, continue along the path, and you’ll come to a fork shortly. Go left into a dead end, and open the trunk there.
Broken Cage: Now turn around and continue to follow the path. Go right when the scene changes, down a path to the right of the tree in front of you. You’ll see a cage and a prompt to the right, next to a sign on the ground.
Bloodied Collar: After you go downstairs in the bunker, like no one in their right mind would, pick up the collar on the ground.
Chapter 1: Hackett’s Quarry Forever
Hunting Notice: After taking control of Jacob by the car, go to the right of the lodge. You’ll see a wooden fence beyond the blue SUV and a sign behind it.
Camp Plaque: Go up to the lodge’s balcony. There is a sign left of the door.
Temperance Tarot Card: Continue around the porch, and go inside the lodge. Go through the library and doubleback to the right through the doorway. The kitchen is on the left, with this tarot card inside.

Empty Vial Evidence: Now turn left, and go to the big tree. Check the tires on the right side of the tree.

Chapter 2: Truth or Dare
Emma and Jacob
Damaged Memorabilia: In the store, go behind the shelving rack in front of you. The prompt is on the ground, though the collectible is on the third shelf from the bottom. You can get this on your way out, as well.
Lodge Renovation Plans: From there, continue through the maze of shelves. There will be a small cutscene that shows a view from the outside. After that, you’ll turn right by a trunk, then left near the cage. Stay on the right side and go all the way back, staying along the shelves. Go to where the sun is shining on the shelves, across from the wooden table. You can get this on your way out, as well.

Abi and Nick
This is where you’ll need to choose which path to take: Rocky Road or Shady Glade. You cannot choose both.
Hanged Man Tarot Card: Take Rocky Road while in the woods. Go left when the path forks, and you’ll cross it along the path.
Trail Cam: Take Shady Glade. Follow the path right. As it curves left and up, look into the trees ahead of you and to the right. You’ll see a fallen tree against the cliff and a thin tree in front of it with the camera strapped on it.
Ranger Box: From there, continue to follow the path up and to the left. Don’t take the path to the right when it branches; this will start a cutscene and you can’t go back. Pass the path that branches to the right, then look to the right just beyond to find a crate.
Chapter 3: Trouble in Paradise
Tower Tarot Card: As soon as you gain control of Abi, turn left and follow the path. Follow the path left again at the next fork, then left one more time when it branches. The camera will shift about halfway down, revealing the card.

Attack Photo Evidence: Go inside the treehouse, and choose to search the bag. Then open the trap door. Do not use the bear mace; it will not trigger the correct sequence. Instead, choose to use the taser. You’ll then need to choose to take the photo manually. It is not automatic.
Strength Tarot Card: You’ll return to the lodge as part of a cutscene. When the scene shifts to show the inside of the lodge, it’s in the extreme foreground, on the left side of the screen.
Chapter 5: White Noise
- Ticket Stub: This isn’t technically a collectible here. You must make Bobby see you when Kaitlyn is searching the lodge. Succeed at the first QTE, then fail the next two. Bobby will raise a table. Shoot it. You can get the collectible in Chapter 10.

Then exit and get the next collectible below (Charred Sheriff’s Badge) in the second set of doors on the left.

Those are all of the collectibles, tarot cards, clues, and pieces of evidence in The Quarry. Though you can start a playthrough to kill everyone for the Hackett’s Quarry Massacre trophy/achievement, you won’t be able to get all of the hidden items you missed. Luckily, playing through The Quarry again is a pretty good time.
