In Alan Wake 2, there’s a hidden Cult Stash that you can discover in the Return 2 – The Heart chapter. Once you have the chance to explore the area that was previously flooded, you’ll find the stash by a campsite near Crow’s Foot Hills.

Unfortunately, the Cult Stash is locked and can only be opened with a key, unlike the Murder Site Cult Stash or the Private Cabin Cult Stash, which requires a combination.
