Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 1 Awake – Optional Graffiti Locations

Where to find all ten of the optional graffiti locations in Life is Strange: Before the Storm episode 1 Awake.

With Life is Strange’s prequel, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, players are once again brought back to Arcadia Bay. While we don’t get to go through the narrative as Max, we’re instead tossed into the shoes of Chloe before the return of Max.

Here you’re are able to get a peek into Chloe’s life after Max left town and though we don’t get any special powers, the game still manages to toss in some fun collectibles that plays around Chloe’s personality.

In the first episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, the player has ten areas that can be marked up with graffiti. Take a look at where to graffiti each of the ten areas below along with what graffiti options Chloe has and the achievement or trophy it unlocks.

Note: Completing all ten graffiti locations will earn you Bring on the Storm achievement/trophy which will also require beating the narrative gameplay.
