Guardians Of The Galaxy A Risky Gamble - Chapter 1 Archives Locations
Before going over the Guardians Of The Galaxy A Risky Gamble Archives collectibles, keep in mind that while playing this chapter, you can also find:
So let’s start from the beginning, or the moment Peter wakes up from his dream.
Archive Collectible #1 - Team Costumes
After Drax wakes up Peter, your objective is to reach your ship’s cockpit.
There is no need to hurry, though, so exit Peter’s room and then turn right, and you’ll see more rooms.
The first door on the right side leads to Rocket’s room. Head inside, and on the floor, you’ll see a sphere you can collect.
It is the first Archive collectible in this chapter.
Archive Collectible #2 - Nano-Resin Incident Report
After getting the previous collectible, focus on the story, and you’ll eventually reach the Quarantine Zone.
It is the first planet you’ll get to explore in the video game.
Now, the moment you exit Peter’s ship and you set foot on the planet, on the left side, you’ll see two yellow crates.
Near the one marked below is the second Guardians Of The Galaxy Archive Collectible in Chapter 1.
Jump on the ledge and grab it.
Archive Collectible #3 - Pride and Fall
Upon sliding down the metal ramp, you’ll eventually have to take a left turn, crouch, and go through a hatch while following Rocket.
On the other side, immediately take a left turn to see one of the Guardians Of The Galaxy Chapter 1 Archives on the other side of the tunnel. It is sitting at a dead-end.
Archive Collectible #4 - QZ Disposal
The next Archive collectible in the first Guardians Of The Galaxy Chapter is found after Rocket challenges Peter to a shooting contest.
This contest starts in front of a rather large tunnel.
Head inside, then just before vaulting, you’ll see a glowing device on the ground on the right side.
Immediately after you collect the Archive above, focus on getting the Ravager Comm Bracelet Guardian Collectible, then the next Archive.
Archive Collectible #5 - Failed to Send Message
The moment you deal with the first group of enemies (round and spikey), you’ll have to jump on several platforms to reach an upper section.
Head around the balcony, and then on the left side, you’ll see some gray goo you have to shoot. In front of it, on the ground, is the fifth Guardians Of The Galaxy collectible in Chapter 1.
Archive Collectible #6 - Unthinkable
A bit later, after the previous collectible, you’ll get to an exciting area which is, in fact, the head of a robot.
And you’ll get there through the robot’s eye. Here you’ll see a lot of targets you can shoot to beat Rocket’s challenge.
Once you’re done, make sure you head up on the platforms in the round area, then look for the next collectible inside the round cage.
Good job. Now you’ll want to focus on finding the Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) Groot Outfit outlined here and then the Spinal Control Unit Guardian Collectible covered here.
Archive Collectible #7 - A Miracle!
The final, Guardians of the Galaxy Chapter 1 Archive, is found much later after you reunite with Drax and Gamora.
You’ll have to use Drax to move a pillar to advance. Once you enter the next area, you’ll hear the funny characters talking about the upcoming boss.
Here there are some pipes on the ground. Next to them is the collectible.
These are all Guardians Of The Galaxy Chapter 1 Archives collectibles you can find. Make sure you don’t miss them; otherwise, you’ll have to replay A Risky Gamble.
