Mission 8: Rubble and Ruin in Sniper Elite 5 contains 19 Collectible Locations. This walkthrough will guide you to all the Collectibles. Nothing is missable, everything can be collected via Mission Select. You can still grab missing Collectibles after completing all Main Objectives, before exfiltrating.
To check which Collectibles you still need, press Options-Button > Service Record > Collectibles > Select Mission. This guide uses the same order as the in-game collectible menu order. The best approach is to clear all enemies from the map first, grab what you find along the way, then collect your missing items after. Sometimes Collectibles bug out and don’t spawn, but restarting the mission fixes this. Collectibles are saved instantly upon picking them up. You can return to the title screen without having to reach the next checkpoint. If you die you don’t have to pick it up again. For other missions see Sniper Elite 5 Collectible Guide.
