Mafia 1 Remake Definitive Edition has 20 Dime Detective Pulp Magazine Locations. Finding all Pulp Magazines is required for the Lending Library trophy or achievement. This guide shows all their locations.
None of the Collectibles in Mafia 1 Remake / Remaster are missable. You can see which Collectibles you’ve found in the Collection Menu. Click on the Collectible Type and press (PS4) / (Xbox One) to sort them by their Chronological Order. This guide lists them in the order they are closest together and includes the chronological in-game number and name for each one, so you can easily find your missing one. All Collectibles are saved instantly. On chapter replays you can quit to the Main Menu without reaching the next Checkpoint and there’s no need to find them again if you die. Everything carries over into your next playthrough, nothing gets lost when starting a new game.
Dime Detectives are magazines scattered throughout the story. Whenever there’s a collectible nearby it will show up as a colored icon on the minimap.
Dime Detective Magazines are all located in the Main Story. For a list of all other Collectible Types, including which other types to look out for during the story in chronological order, refer to the Mafia 1 Remake Collectibles Guide.
