Dead Drops become collectible once again only this time, they are carried by carrier pigeons flying around the city. Aside from earning your first Dead Drop as part of a story mission, you'll have to find the others yourself. They'll be automatically listed on your mini-map in the form of a blue pigeon icon when you get close. Collecting them will reveal the back story of the characters across the game, shown in the form of audio logs. For 19 you will need the Improved Static Thrusters, see "Back to Bayou" for a guide on how to reach that area.
There are a total 30 Dead Drops scattered across the game. Note that the map is meant to be used in compliment to the video.
Both dead drop and shards are much easier to find. The DDs are bright birds on your mini-map and the shards not have an ability that allows you to see the shard closest to you, whether you are one foot or 300 meters away.
Mactchillien, although I don't agree with your spelling, I do agree the game was easy. I got everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, by the second day. (Except for beating it on hard that was the 3rd day). Granted, I love this series and I consider myself a good gamer, I think I could have had more kick. Unfortunately for us *Spoiler* there's almost no possible way to have a third game without some MAJOR alterations between the good side and the bad side.
I only need this trophy and the one with the verandas and 5th platinum!God i love this game,the only dissapointment was tha cole doesnt look as cool as in infamous 1,also both of the ending leave no option for an infamous 3 :(
@10 that'd be so lame and cheesy if the lightning resurected Cole. This better be the last inFAMOUS. I love this series but the story they set out was told and told well in 2 installments. I'd rather Sucker Punch work on new things (or old in the case of Sly 4)
My last two dead drops was not showing up (number 19 and 16) but i used the UGC Editor to teleport to them locations and i think that made them glitch. Today i ran there on foot and both showed up without a problem.
omg omg >=/ this always happens to me XD i only needed one more of the dead drops but couldn't find it .. so I used the guide photo. I started on the swamp the went through every spot and couldn't find it.. there was one last place and i mean it was the last spot to look for it and there it was.. omg i always get so unlucky like that damn ^^ ... pretty easy with the guide.
My last one was 19 on the map at the begining even though i was sure i got it as i went back to the begining previously for that other trophy, i spent ages grinding the rails hoping it would show up on the edge of my mini map, what is it when you try going back to the begining that you WILL die at least twice due to Cole doing something stupid, its like he doesnt want to go back there. mmmmm?
