There are 21 Collectibles in Evil West The First Spark, and you need to get them all if you aim for 100% completion of the Mission.
Here is the list:
- 9 Lore
- 12 Cash
It’s worth mentioning that if you find all Cash on all Missions (including the previous one, The Raid, which is discussed here), you unlock the Chest Nuts Trophy/Achievement.
So, it’s definitely worth checking the guide below to make sure you don’t miss a single collectible in the First Spark Mission.
Cash #1 (126 Bucks): Between The Horses And Trunks
You can obtain the first collectible immediately after starting Chapter 3 by going to the two horses on the left.
Cash #1 is between the horses and the trunks nearby.
Lore #1 (Daily Mail News 1/4): Behind A Carriage
After you collect Cash #1, turn around, and you’ll notice two carriages on the other side of the fountain.
Behind the carriage to the left lays Lore #1.
Lore #2 (President Lincoln And William Rentier): On A Cart
Now you have to go inside the building and go toward the stairs.
Don’t go up the stairs; instead, look to the left to notice Evil West First Spark Lore #2 on a cart between two red couches.
Lore #3 (Daily Mail News 2/4): On A Desk
Another Lore waits for you in the next room, so turn around from the previous collectible and go through the entrance to the right.
You’ll find the bag with documents on the desk to the left, near the big window.
Lore #4 (RI Files): In A Bookcase
For the next collectible in Mission 3, you have to turn around and go to the other side of the room, paying attention to the right.
Lore #4 is in one of the bookcases to the right, as shown in the next image.
Lore #5 (Jesse Among RI Cadets): On A Small Round Table
Continue forward in the room with the previous two collectibles, and you’ll find First Spark Lore #5 on a small round table in the corner to the right.
The Lore is a picture of Jesse in his first year of cadet training.
Cash #2 (105 Bucks): In Another Bookcase
Now, in the same room, go upstairs using the stairs to the left and walk a couple of meters forward.
On the right, you should see a Cash bag in another bookcase.
Lore #6 (Civil War Time Photo): In Yet Another Bookcase
For another Evil West Chapter 3 Lore, you must first return to the main hall (the one with the entrance where you came from).
Then go upstairs on the left side to find the collectible in yet another bookcase (this is the last one, I promise).
Lore #7 (First Prototype Of The Gauntlet): On A Wooden Stand
The next Lore is on the same floor as the previous collectible, on a wooden stand directly above the entrance to the building.
The Lore is a sketch of the first prototype gauntlet.
Lore #8 (A Portrait Of William Rentier): On A Chair
Now proceed through the First Spark Mission until you reach the Attend The Presentation objective.
If you don’t know the current Mission objective, you have to hold the Menu button on your Xbox controller, and it will appear in the top right corner of your screen.
You’ll have to open a closed door in a room with three guards.
One guard is standing by the door, and the other two are sitting on armchairs.
Look for the collectible on a chair near a bookcase, on the other side of the closed door.
Cash #3 (78 Bucks): On A Cable
For Cash #3, you first have to fight some mobs after the surprise attack, then drop down.
Deal with more enemies and continue on the main path.
After you crouch to pass under an obstacle, walk slowly and pay close attention to the ground on the right side because the collectible is very hard to see.
You’ll find Cash #3 on a cable on the ground, like in the following screenshot.
Cash #4 (383 Bucks): Near Some Crates And Barrels
Proceed through Evil West Mission 3 until you find yourself in a room with four carriages and a bunch of barrels.
You’ll reach this room after some fighting and another cutscene.
Look for a chest near some crates and barrels on the right side of this room.
Cash #5 (88 Bucks): In A Glowing Crate
Now you have to find a lever with a yellow cable coming out of it.
Pull the lever and follow the cable that should now be blue.
After a couple of meters, you’ll find a glowing crate on the left side you need to destroy and then pick up the 88 bucks.
Cash #6 (154 Bucks): On The Shelves
After you reach the room with the huge Tesla coil, clear the enemies and look for the next collectible on the shelves on the right side.
Pick up the cash bag to obtain 154 bucks.
Cash #7 (101 Bucks): On A Small Crate Next To A Pillar
Make your way to the next room, the one with the stored vampire heads, and go down the stairs.
Then look to your left, and you should notice Evil West First Spark Cash #7 on a small crate next to a pillar.
Lore #9 (Jesse’s Great Grandfather): On A Stretcher
Upon obtaining the previous collectible, head left to find the next collectible on the second stretcher to the right.
The collectible is a picture of Jesse’s great grandfather on the battlefield.
Cash #8 (128 Bucks): In A Glowing Crate On A Stretcher
Now go to the other side of the room with Lore #9, right of the stairs, and you should find another glowing crate on a stretcher.
Smash the crate to get 128 Bucks.
Cash #9 (80 Bucks): Behind A Highlighted Object
Continue with the First Spark Mission, and after you set the place on fire, you’ll enter a room with a broken elevator.
Look to the right in this room, and you should see a highlighted chain on an object.
Punch the object to smash it and get 80 Bucks.
Cash #10 (86 Bucks): Behind Some Wooden Boards
Soon after you obtain Cash #9, your objective will update to Find William Rentier, and you’ll find yourself in an area where everything is burning around you.
Keep your eyes on the right side of this area as you go forward, and you’ll notice a highlighted chain on some wooden boards.
Punch the boards to get the next Evil West Chapter 3 collectible.
Cash #11 (115 Bucks): Behind Some Wooden Boards In A Glowing Crate
For the next Cash in First Spark, you’ll have to reach the part of the Mission where you pick up an Energy Container.
Then turn around and go forward to reach a crossroad where you can see yet another highlighted chain on some wooden boards.
Smash the boards with your fist to reveal a glowing crate you need to destroy to get 115 bucks.
Cash #12 (296 Bucks): Behind A Tipped-Over Bed
The last collectible is located in Rentier Institute, which you’ll enter through a big hole in the building after you fight more enemies.
As you enter the Institue, you should see a tipped-over bed to your right.
And guess what? Behind the bed is a chest containing 296 bucks.
