Uncharted 2: Among thives
Complete Treasures Guide by Tim Schroeder
[-= Introduction =-]
Wrote this up because I felt having gotten my hands on the game ahead of time thanks to the Sneak Peek event and having used a guide to find the treasures in Drake's Fortune I should give a little back. So enjoy and you're welcome, I tried to put a much detail in as possible without ruining anything but that said don't look ahead or you will get some spoilers. Also if you need to jump somewhere quick it's sorted by chapter.

Sorry not giving out my e-mail but if you need to get ahold of me follow this link http://www.gametrailers.com/users/daemeon/gamepad/. For those that ask politely I do have a drastically better formatted word doc version of the guide.
1.Wrathful Deity Statue
Just to the right of where you start the game, after getting off the train I mean.
Facing the door you open just after picking up the first gun turn to your right and it's right in front of you.
3.Tibetan Snuff Bottle
Just after you pass through the first train car, this is the one right after you get the first gun, look up. There is a dead enemy hanging out of the car train above you, shoot it and collect it.
4.Bhutanese Lime Box
Shortly after the first fight you will climb up another section of the train. At the top of the train section you will jump across to another section of the train, turn around and move straight forward of the train and cargo container. It will be in the snow at your feet.
5.Ghau Amulet Thogchag
After you pick yourself up after the video with Chloe and Drake in his room you'll need to jump across to another train car. Once you pull yourself up into that train car turn around, it's at the far end of the cab, careful you don't fall into the opening you just climbed up through.
6.Byzantine Gold Coin
When you enter the boiler room look for the box in the corner with a shovel and pickax on it, it's with them.
7.Glass Evil Eye
When Drake says "ok, this is the way to the courtyard" turn around and look for a small yellow catwalk with a ladder hanging down. It's on the catwalk.
Shortly after the scene where you're hiding from the guard you'll hit a section filled with museum pieces. The ring is on one of the statues to the right of the door which leaves the area. This is just before you find the locked door with the alarm.
9.Silver Amulet Box
You'll reach a spot where you take the left path while Flynn takes the right. Anyway at after taking out the guard on the walkway continue to the end of the path and drop down. It's on a flower bed just below where you dropped down. This is just before you reach the alarmed gate.
10.Silver Belt Buckle
It's on one of the leaves of the fountain in the courtyard. Almost impossible to miss.
11.Ivory Chess Knight
Once you're in the rafters of the room where you get the tranq gun line yourself up with the beam on the right. It's in the second window on the right side of the beam on the far side.
Once you're on the roof tops you'll reach a point where Flynn throws a rope for you to wall run jump across to some grates on the side of the building, drop down from here and shimmy around the back side of the building to the drainage pipe. Drop down on the drainage pipe and hang from the front of it to collect the treasure.
13.Antique Pocket Watch
After the spot where you have to shoot a guard with the tranq gun while hanging you'll jump down onto a green roof, follow the roof around the building on your right then look up to your left once you've walked just a bit past where the building stops. It will be there next to the hanging red banner, you'll have to shoot it to collect it.
When you're running from the guards in the sewers you'll enter a room with lots of pipes used for covers, before you leave this room turn around. The treasure is next to the pipe on the far side from the exit.
Just after Flynn leaves your ass to die or get tossed in jail before running for your life run towards the three guards behind the closed security gate. Just to the left of this is a small alove with a stone lion head coming out of the wall, it's right below the lion head.
16.Yuan Dynasty Coin
After you arm the first bomb on the left side of the path there is a log propped up against a wall. Walk up the log and shoot the treasure off the top branch of the tree on the other side.
17.Yuan Dynasty Jade Animal
Turn right after encountering the first guard and head forward to the log proppedup against a wall just like the last one. The treasure is on top of a busted up barrel on the other side of the wall.
18.Jade Pei Pendant
Shortly after Chloe informs you you're approaching excavation site 1 you'll encounter 2 more guards. After you kill them you have to scale a wall but when you reach the top don't go over, instead shimmy to your right and you'll find a path leading to the top of the water fall. The treasure is at the end of the path.
19.Amber Jade Chimera
Ok this one takes the most work of any so far. After you lose your guns and do the melee counter tutorial don't follow the hose, at least not yet. Instead turn to your right and follow the path back to where you spotted the guys working on the generator. About halfway through the path there are some stones on the wall you can climb up, this will lead you to two swinging jumps which will land you on pair of large logs tied together suspended in the air. Climb up on the logs and follow them to land, once you're on land turn left and jump across the gap, for those not paying attention the gap is right over where you lost your guns. Go up the stone steps to your right and it's in the pile of debris.
20.Mongol Paiza Passport
In the area just outside of Lazarevic's tent is the remains of one of Marco's ships. It's on the side of the tall mast in the middle of the area facing the tent up by the crows next. Shoot it down for victory.
21.Jade Belt Slide
In the tomb where you find the remains of Marco's passangers. It's on the wrist of one of the statues above the doorway opposite from the one with the bats.
22.Yuan Dynasty Helmet
After the video where you find the dagger turn the camera 90 degrees to the left and look up. You'll notice it high on the wall to the left, shoot it down and you're done for the chapter.
Near the start of this chapter, after you go vertical for a bit, will reach a point where a helicopter shows up. After it passes if you descend to street level on the far right side of this area there is a open manhole. Go down it and collect the relic.
23.Brass Bird Lamp
In the middle of the courtyard where you had to take out the guy with the RPG-7 is a lamp post. It's at the top of the lamp post in a small green box.
24.Silver Dress Clasp
Same area as #23. Turn around from the pole that #23 is on and look up at the symbol over the door of the small temple in front of you. It's in the center of the symbol, just shoot it down and it's yours.
25.Copper Rice Measure
In the same area as #23 and #24. Once you get up onto the roof before entering the hotel go around the far side and it will be at the edge of the roof. This is just before you encounter the armored shotgun guy coming out of the elevator so if you hit that get back out on that roof and get it before continuing cause once you get into the elevator you've missed it til the next round through.
26.Yuan Dynasty Urn
Shortly after you head off the fix the power you'll cross to another building with a stairwell and busted another busted elevator, the treasure it on top of the elevator. To get on top of the elevator just follow the stairs to the top and just across to the shaft then drop in on top of it.
Special Trophy tip - If you haven't gotten the Triple Dyno-Might! Trophy yet when you cross to this building is a great time to get it, just hang from the window and wait, 3 guys will come stand right in front of it so all you have to do is lob a grenade at the ceiling just inside the window and you'll get it. This also go towards your 10 count for the Grenade Hangman trophy so bonus. If you missed doing this just restart from the last checkpoint, you'll start right back to just before you crossed to the building with the treasure in it so you got as many chances as you need to do it.
27.Enameled Snuff Bottle
After you cross back from the building #25 was in before going up the knocked over support beam jump over the railing to your left and follow the roof around the side of the building to find a suitcase with this treasure in it.
On the roof where the first guy carrying an M32 - Hammer. Climb up next to the Water Tank on the highest point of the roof, it's right there next to the air conditioning unit. If you're fighting the chopper you've gone it was one roof back and you missed it.
Right after the chapter starts there is a wrecked building on your right, it's in the building next to a fire and yellow box.
30.Nine Jewel Ring
Same area as #29. Jump in the left side of the water fountain so you are practically lined up with the door to leave the area, now look straight up with aim. Shoot it down, collect it and be on your way.
31.Ankhora Water Vessel
After you make the makeshift bridge out of cars and climb up the ladder head as far left as you can, past the two weird statues then jump over the stone railing. The treasure should be right at you feet or within a foot or two so just look around your feet if you didn't land on it.
32.Silver Shiva Amulet
Shortly after you see a tank mow down resistance fighters while shimmying across a gap you'll reach the temple you've been looking for. On your way through this courtyard to the temple gates look to the left for a blue trailer with red and green milk crates in front of it, it's on the trailer.

After you've climbed up the first blade of the dagger and got the scene on the bright red face get over to the walkway on your right, follow it all the way to the end and it will be at your feet.

51.Ram's Head Thogchag
From where you start the chapter go around the house to your right, it's behind it. Oh and don't forget to pet the yak.
52.Bronze Buddha Statue
After petting the second yak closest to where you start the chapter jump up on the building right next to it. Ignore the trap door leading into someones house and instead continue across the roof to a pair of red doors over a stone wall, the treasure is next to the one on the right. Don't forget to pet the yak.

58.Silver Needle Case

After the giant statue turns around to reveal the angry face it's in the center of it's forehead on the crown. I would suggest waiting til you've beaten the game to try to get this one cause it's insanely easier if you can just queue up a Dragon Sniper instead of trying to nail it with the P08.
66.Amber Skull Bead
After the first set of bad guys go down you'll go through an archway. The treasure is on top of the building in front of you and to the right next to all the hey. This building had a yak next to it when you were here in chapter 16.
After you go climb up the ladder and go through a red trap door which Tenzin closes behind you head to your left while hugging the wall. You should walk right over it a little after you pass a stone monument on the right.
Shortly after #67 you'll reach a spot where there are two blue wood roofs over basically nothing. The treasure is under the one with the red wood walls. For a bit more clarification this is the area you encountered the guys with the M32 - Hammer.
69.Yak Horn Carving
After you escape the tank for the first time follow the path until you pass a blue door on the left, continue forward to the wall and look down to your right. It should be sitting right in front of you. If you jump over the high wall you've gone to far, jump back over and look around your feet.
70.Bronze Tsongkhapa Statue

Shortly after the tank breaks through over head there will be a small dip in your path next to a red door just before a multi-colored flag. Drop down and take the treasure.
72.Gilt Tara Statue
Ok so time has come to fight the tank and you'll start encountering guys with RPG - 7's, the second one should be right by a hole with a blue wood lid leaning up against the wall. Well after the second one while moving across the roofs you'll encounter 2 more holes, the first will have a blue wood lid like the first laying next to it and the second will have a stone wall protecting you from the tank, drop down this second one and look around on the platform you're standing on cause it's right there.
73.Tibetan Silver Earring
Right after you start take out the group of guys then go back to the giant door you just saw in the video, look up dead center above the door. Shoot it down, collect it and get moving.
Just after entering the monastery grounds, this is where you fight the second group of guys in this chapter, head to your right then to the ledge. Hang down and you'll see it on the end of a bit of red wood, you'll have to do some climbing to get to it.

78.Carved Wood Ghurra
In the building where you are sniper bait on the bottom floor there is a hole blown in the wall, hang off the edge on the side facing the bridge you just crossed and climb down to collect it from one of the bridge supports.
79.Bronze Tiger Bell
Ok so after you've killed all the snipers and guys trying to come kill you and before you go across the big bridge go back to the first floor of the sniper bait building. On the side facing the big bridge you will find a collapsed bridge which looks too far to jump but you're wrong. Basically what you gotta do is take a running start and wait til the very last second to jump, for me it actually looked like I was two steps past where the bridge ended and was walking on air. Anyway after you get across just follow the path to the end and look up, shoot it down and be happy. Yes it's gonna take you a few tries to make that jump.
80.Antique Bronze Lion
After the battle in the monastery courtyard and the swinging area that follows you'll enter a building with a archway and destroyed section to it's right.

When you reach the end and are looking at the tree take the diagonal jump to the platform to your left, it's in the corner.
83.Bronze Oil Lamp
This one is in the area with the 2 armored Gau-19 users. Kill off everyone in the area then get on then go to the window but don't drop down into the building, instead turn around and look. If you're standing in the left alcove on the window, this is based on after you've turned around and aim it will be at the top of the third pillar back. Shoot it down, collect and get your ass back to the window to collect #84.
84.Ancient Sword Guard
When you enter through the window leaving the area with the 2 armored Gau-19 carrying dude look up at the center of the room, dead in the middle of the ceiling. Shoot it down to claim it.

After the first fight with the blue meanies get up onto the second floor where the statues with the weird things coming out of their chests at. The treasure is in the right eye of one of the things coming out of the statues.
94.Clay Yamantaka Head
After shooting the sap to burn up the tree roots you'll go up some stairs. You should see it as you go but if not at the top of the stairs turn left and look up, another one you have to shoot to get.
95.Gold-life Statue Head
After the conversation about what Shambala must have been like back in the day head towards the tower with the Cintamani stone in it. When you can see a bridge with some waterfalls behind it go to the cliff and turn right, should be right in front of you.
