It isn’t unusual for a game to take the time to pay tribute to another entry in its series or a sister franchise that came before it. Whether it’s a crossover for another game or what-have-you, there are many ways for a game to host secrets for only its most dedicated fans to find.
The Evil Within 2 does just that, paying homage to many of its publisher Bethesda’s finest franchises through several Easter eggs that are sure to challenge the completionist in you. Though the game has yet to arrive, we’ve had some time to sit down and sift through its various chapters.
We’ve gone through every chapter of the game and will show you how to find all eight of these “mysterious objects” that pay tribute to items in other Bethesda games. These objects, when collected, can be displayed in Sebastian’s safe room. To find each of them, here is where you need to go and in what chapter:
The Evil Within 2 – All Chapter 3 Mysterious Objects Locations
Replica Rocket Launcher (Quake)- For this one, you need to be near the House Inn. In the Residential District of Union, there is a house that has a chain link fence around it. Inside the fence is a small shed. Climb up to the top of the shed and from there, use the connecting planks to walk across to the house’s roof. On top of the roof is the Quake rocket launcher.
