Two of these collectibles, however, can be obtained right away.
Where To Find The Casino Parking Lot Nugget Of Wisdom
The first Psychonauts 2 Hollis’ Hot Streak Nuggets of Wisdom collectible is actually easy to get but a bit hard to spot.
You’ll find it in the Casino Parking Lot (or the former hospital parking lot).
Look for it on the Emergency billboard above the entrance. You can get there using the nodes nearby and Raz’s Mental Connection.
How To Get The Pharmacy Backroom Nugget Of Wisdom
One of the Psychonauts 2 Hollis’ Hot Streak Nuggets of Wisdom collectibles is found in the Pharmacy Backroom Area.
Since this can’t be collected on your first playthrough because you must unlock the Dark Thoughts Mental Connection badge upgrade, you’ll need to use the replay option in Sasha’s laboratory, then interact with the green worm to select this specific room.
The moment you enter the Pharmacy Backroom, shoot the purple crystals on the ground (left side), jump on the pink heart, then, after the first node, look to your left side.
You’ll see a Dark Thoughts node you can access after unlocking the said upgrade.
Connect to it and to the next one; then you’ll be able to spot the Nugget of Wisdom.
Where To Find The Records Nugget Of Wisdom
The third Psychonauts 2 Nuggets of Wisdom collectible in Hollis’ Hot Streak is one of the trickiest.
To get it, while in the Morgue, rotate the die and enter the Records Room.
Now, follow the main corridor until you reach the other side, where there are three slots.
Turn left, and you’ll see another corridor. Follow it to find a desk and behind it a poster you can burn. Do this, and you’ll find the collectible.
How To Get The Cardiology Nugget Of Wisdom
The last Nugget of Wisdom in Hollis’ Hot Streak is in the Cardiology room you can access via the Morgue or when replaying this level.
When you get to the Cardiology while facing what seems to be a bar, on the right side is a door that leads to the storage room.
Cross it and behind another door, but in a smaller room, you’ll find the Nugget of Wisdom.
Keep in mind that for this one, you need the Projection badge that allows Raz to shrink.
These are all 4 Nuggets of Wisdom locations in Hollis’ Hot Streak level of Psychonauts 2, the video game developed by Double Fine Productions.
