Letters of the Lost

By
Jarrod Garripoli

Letters of the Lost are the remnants of when the Japanese occupied the Rook Islands. When you acquire the letters, you can read them to get some insight of the happenings during World War II. They are always found on the corpses of former Japanese military, which are found in old bunkers or by large cannons. Each Letter acquired will give you 500 XP.

As with all collectibles, the order below is how it is presented in the Handbook in-game.

Letters of the Lost are always found on the dead body of a Japanese World War II soldier. Most are pretty easy to find, but some might be slightly more hidden than usual.

Letter Coordinates Location
11 X: 799.7, Y: 749.9 The entrance to the bunker, where this letter is located, is hidden a little bit. Go to the main road to the southwest and find the little path that starts there, which is where you’ll find the entrance.

14 X: 602.6, Y: 457.7 Inside of a bunker on top of the hill.

16 X: 528.6, Y: 399.8 In the grass right outside of the large cannon.
17 X: 407.8, Y: 498.9 Pretty much in plain sight.
