This Vampyr Guide shows where to find the locations of all Weapons and Collectibles (30 Collectibles, 12 One-Hand Melee Weapons, 8 Two-Hand Melee Weapons, 13 Off-Hand Weapons, 11 Ranged Firearms).
Locating all collectibles and weapons unlocks the following trophies or achievements:
- Lore keeper – Gather all collectibles
- The tools of the profession – Find all melee weapons
- Keep your distance – Find all ranged weapons
- Weapons of choice – Find all off-hand weapons
The collectable documents reveal interesting lore and secrets. The weapons can be upgraded and used in combat. The point of no return is in Chapter 6. It’s highly recommended you make a manual save game backup at the start of Chapter 6. At this point you can still free-roam and revisit the entire map. After chapter 6 there is no way to go back! You would have to start a new game and lose all your progress!
If you combine this with your pacifist run for trophy Not even once just keep everyone alive until Chapter 6, make a backup of the save game, kill everyone for their collectibles, and copy back the save when you’re done (all NPCs will live again). For a lot of weapons you have to kill citizens. In this guide we kept all the citizens for Chapter 6. If you don’t care about keeping everyone alive then you can also get these much earlier in the game.
Due to the semi-open world structure the order in which you can obtain collectibles is not set in stone, you could take different paths or kill people at different times. In this guide we focus on the main mission areas where the story takes you and then do a cleanup in Chapter 6 once all areas have been unlocked. DLC & Pre-Order weapons are not required.

- 12/12 One-Hand Melee Weapon = BLUE
- 8/8 Two-Hand Meele Weapon = PINK
- 13/13 Off-Hand Weapon = GREEN

Chapter 6 / Mop-Up
Important: Make a manual Save Game Backup at the start of Chapter 6! Many weapons are from embracing different citizens so if you’re on your Pacifist run for trophy “Not even once” it is important you keep a backup save from before embracing anyone (killing people also voids side quests)!!!
After beating Chapter 6 there’s no way to go back (you would have to start a new game and lose all your progress). The Harriet Boss Fight is the point of no return, when this fight triggers is the last chance to go back. In Chapter 6 you can still free-roam and revisit places.
PS4 Backup: Go to PS4 Settings > Application Saved Data Management > Saved Data in System Storage > Copy to USB Storage (if you back up to PS+ Cloud be sure to disable Auto-Upload or else it will overwrite your save).
Xbox One Backup: Quit the game at the start of Chapter 6 to trigger the automatic cloud upload > (double-check that it really uploaded to the cloud) > kill everyone for their weapons/collectibles WITHOUT EXITING THE GAME (exiting the game overwrites cloud save!) > as soon as last collectible achievement pops, press Home-Button > scroll down to Vampyr > press Options > Manage Game > Saved Data > click Gamertag > Delete Saved Data > Delete from Console > if it still shows the save, delete it again until it’s gone > press Home-Button and restart the game > it will now sync/download your chapter 6 save from cloud!
