For Honor: All Vikings Campaign Collectibles [Breakables / Observables]

Cut a swathe of destruction across the fictional settings of For Honor as we switch sides and join the raiding Vikings faction for Chapter 2 of the singleplayer story. All three factions get representation as the campaign unfolds, and the Vikings get to be the sweet sugar filling that holds the Knight / Samurai Oreo together. Moving past the belabored metaphor, let’s dive into the real star attraction — even more pointless collectibles.

Okay, that isn’t entirely honest. The collectibles in For Honor actually aren’t pointless at all. Finding them all will earn you emblem parts, allowing you to create and share awesome custom emblems for your clan. Everyone in the online lobby will get to see your handiwork. There are more customization options to unlock, and tidbits of backstory to learn, so keep scrolling to find all the spots where observables / breakables reside with the chapter-by-chapter breakdown below.

All Vikings Campaign Collectibles Guide

Each mission features a number of Observables and Breakables, the two types of collectibles in For Honor. Breakables are, well, things you can break! Usually breakables are a bunch of vases / crates. You don’t need to destroy them all to “collect” a breakable. Destroying just one of the bunch counts. 

Observables are things you can look at — watch for an “eye” icon as you look around the environment. If you focus your camera on it, an [L1 / LB] will appear. Press it to officially observe and “collect” this second type of collectible.

Chapter 2.1 – Breakables / Observables Locations

  • Observable #1: Loot the Food Supplies – Left of the burning thatched-roof cottage, get a view of the harbor.
  • Observable #2:  Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – After learning something about Zone Attacks, continue past one burning tower to another. Don’t walk past that second tower yet — turn right and examine the distance.
  • Breakable #1:  Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – Continue up the hill. There’s a bunch of boxes on your right, in front of the hall.
  • Observable #3: Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – Run down the path to the left (instead of turning right to reach those breakables) — on the far end, on the left, there’s a shack you can look at.
  • Breakable #2: Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – Up the hill from that previous observable, look for a flat wooden platform along the hill, on the left, with a grouping of these pots.
  • Observable #4: Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – Continue on up the hill path to reach a flat landing. Look right to spot a woodworking station.
  • Observable #5: Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – To the left of the woodworking station, climb the stairs. At the top of those steps, turn left and observe the crane that’s visible.
  • Observable #6: Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – Near the top of the village, observe the large stone tablet near the steps leading up, not far from the large windmill.
  • Observable #7: Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – This time, checkout that huge windmill. When climbing up the settlement hills, look in the back-right edge. It’s really hard to miss.
  • Observable #8: Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – Take the stairs leading up to the Main Hall… and checkout the Main Hall! It’s the building at the top of the village, overlooking the rest of the settlement.
  • Breakable #3:  Loot the Food Supplies (2/3) – On the wooden scaffolding near the crane. Take the stairs up toward the Main Hall and turn left.

Chapter 2.2 – Breakables / Observables Locations

  • Observable #1: Free the Viking Prisoners – Right where you start, turn right at look at the “decorations”
  • Observable #2: Free the Viking Prisoners – Behind your small retinue of soldiers, examine the tower door.
  • Observable #3: Free the Viking Prisoners – Still in the same area, look at the submerged statue head on the hill, right where the paths fork.
  • Breakable #1: Free the Viking Prisoners – Take the left path from the statue head and enter the large tower, using the spiral staircase to reach an upper floor containers these pots.
  • Breakable #2: Free the Viking Prisoners – From the previous breakables, take the small set of steps back outside to find another batch of vases to destroy.
  • Breakable #3: Free the Viking Prisoners – Back at the statue head, go down the left path toward the large tower but look on the right. Along the paths, there are more pots.
  • Observable #4: Free the Viking Prisoners – Continue up the hill toward the fort. There’s a tall tower you can observe here.
  • Observable #5: Free the Viking Prisoners – At at the base of the observable tower. There’s a ruined siege machine to look at.
  • Breakable #4: Free the Viking Prisoners – Right next to the ruined siege tower.
  • Observable #6: Free the Viking Prisoners – Next, go towards the sacred stone ruins across the bridge. On the left side of the peak, there’s a tree with faces carved onto the sides. Observe that tree.
  • Breakable #5: Free the Viking Prisoners – There’s a wooden cage near the large stone monument. To the right of the cage, bash open the vases to get the final collectible for this mission.

Chapter 2.3 – Breakables / Observables Locations

  • Breakable #1: Open the Gate – Taking the steps down into the shipyard, don’t cross the rickety bridge over the ship. After taking the first steps, turn left to smash the pots on this platform.
  • Breakable #2: Open the Gate – Now step onto the ship and enter the building with the waterwheel outside. There are breakables in the back-left corner.
  • Observable #1: Open the Gate – The building with those previous breakables is actually a saw-mill, and the saw is still spinning. Take a look at the saw in the center of the room, from the right-ish side, to find this observable.

  • Observable #4: Open the Gate – From the pots, climb up to the wall (above that tunnel you stepped through earlier) to find access to the large ship’s deck. Instead of getting on the ship, enter the tower at the end. Inside the tower, look at the skull hanging over the door.
  • Breakable #4: Open the Gate – Now you can get onto the large ship’s deck and smash the pots located there.
  • Observable #5: Open the Gate – Look up at the defensive walls behind the lined-up ballistas. It’s directly opposite the tower with the previous observable.
  • Breakable #5: Open the Gate – To the left of the observable, enter the gateway to find the last breakables in this mission.
