There are a lot of collectibles to find in Alan Wake 2. One particular type, the lunchboxes, comes from someone who's willing to lend a helping hand. Our guide discusses where you can find the Alex Casey Lunchboxes in Alan Wake 2 so you don't spend a lot of time trying to look for them. Likewise, please be reminded that this article contains minor spoilers.
There are 21 Alex Casey Lunchboxes in Alan Wake 2, and all of these are found while you're playing as Saga (i.e. Return chapters). You'll know that one is nearby if you see colorful ornamental decorations and rocks lining a pathway. Saga will also remark if you're close to this type of object.
Once you've opened one, you'll see a letter from your benefactor, as well as materials called Manuscript Fragments. These are used to upgrade Saga's armaments. You can learn more about these in our weapon locations guide.
We've numbered the collectibles in Cauldron Lake a bit differently. That's because several can be yours very early in the campaign, whereas the rest require a bit of progression.
First set: 1A to 1E — These Alan Wake 2 lunchboxes can be obtained during Saga's first chapter, Return 1: Invitation, and in succeeding chapters whenever you return to Cauldron Lake.
Second set: 2A to 2C — The first two can be acquired after you clear the boss encounter in the Overlap during Return 2: The Heart. That causes the flooding recede, allowing you to check out the other areas. The last one requires the Bolt Cutters, which you won't obtain until the end of Return 5: Old Gods several hours into the campaign.
