Wolfenstein 2 is packed with collectibles. There are fifty Gold items that you can find within its levels, all of which can be collected. Some of them are off the beaten path, in obscure or hard to find locations. This Guide aims to give you a detailed description of where to find all the Gold items within each level, along with a screenshot to show you their rough location. The Guide will go level by level, and try to direct you from one Gold item to the next.
It should be noted, some of these are only available if you load back into the areas using the Enigma Engine, so I personally just waited until I had finished the campaign and then went back in to collect them all. Finally two of them can be gotten from a secret area that unlocks after you have killed all the Ubercommanders, so if you want to get all the gold you need to wrap that part up beforehand. If you don’t know how to use the Engima Machine, check out our useful guide.
Manhattan – Harbor
Gold#1 – You can find the first gold item right where you spawn in. On your left hand side is a crashed plane in the water. Jump into the water and swim to it, the Gold can be found in the shipping container right behind it.
