At the end of the chapter, as Amicia and Lucas are escaping the soldiers, both of them will enter a warehouse where they need to use a ballista to create a distraction. Just next to where the ballista is hanging, you can find the Secret Chest, with the knife for it just opposite.
As Amicia and Lucas are making their way down to the docks to get to the ship, you will use a cart with a brazier on it to get through some rats. Before pushing it towards the water, take a U-turn and you will see a ladder leading up to a balcony. Up here, you can find the Chest.
After you break the chain holding the big weight in the house, after crossing the river, head outside and behind the building. Here you will find a ladder. Go up it to find the Secret Chest.
After you and Hugo pass the guards late into the chapter, you will come into a storage room with shelves in front of you. On your right, there is a hole underneath one of the shelves. Go through it to find the Secret Chest.
In the chapter, you will make your way past a number of enemies hiding out in a cover, amongst some shipwrecked boats. At the end, you will see a gap you can squeeze through and a lit torch. Before going straight, look to your right and you will find a wreckage you can crouch through. On the other side, you can find the chest.
While exploring the large open area, you will eventually cross a small footbridge with a person on it. Before heading forward towards the objective, take a left and look for the large brick tower. Use the window on the outside to open the door inside by destroying the chain and climb up to the top. Up here, you can find the Secret Chest. You can also get a souvenir location here as well.
A little later on you will pass a man with a bunch of goats. As you head up the cliff, passing the goat that has wondered off on your left you will see a cliff you can climb up on your left. Up here is the Secret Chest.
After you sneak onto the cart and it crashes amongst a sea of rats, Sophia will join you. You will be able to use her prism to create an area of light around you. Just past the first fire, you can see a doorway with a balcony. Up here is the Secret Chest. But, first walk onward just past the rubble and you will see a pile of sticks. Use Sophia’s Prism to get there and grab the stick and then head back to the previous fire. Light the stick on fire with this bonfire opposite the doorways and then walk through the doorway to get to safety and reach the chest up on the balcony.
After Amicia drops down to the bottom of the large temple, you will cross some rats and climb up to the upper side of the room with some chains you can squeeze through. This is on the edge of the room, in a long corridor. Just by the chest on your right, you will see the Secret Chest behind a rats nest. Well, just next to you is a chain you can break with your sling. After breaking it, squeeze through and then look to your left to find another chain you can squeeze through and the chest you just saw.
As you make your way through the chapter you will eventually have to push a cart ahead of you. But, first, look up to your left, where you came from. You will see a white mark on a wall. Push the cart against this and climb up. Enter the door on your right to find the Secret Chest.
