Quantum Break Act III collectibles guide

More Chronons, narrative objects (some quite risque this time around), and intel are waiting to be discovered in the third act of Quantum Break!

After the absolute slog fest of unending collectibles in the previous section of the game, Act 3 of Quantum Break is a little less cluttered, but still features a ton of narrative objects and Chronons.

Be sure to use each Chronon source you find to upgrade your time powers, and keep in mind you have to activate time sight with "Y" to view the Chronons - simply knowing where they are isn't enough.
