Waves of Steel – Treasures Guide (What Are They and How to Get Them)

Recently, some of the missions have been gifted an ‘easter egg’ of sorts for players to collect. Please consider finding these your self as it is the intended way.

Although, i will be putting clues before the “ITS OVER HERE” bits that you can use to guide your self in the direction of how to get them.

General Tips

Note: Credit goes to Thai Sweet Chicken

Firstly, your probably not going to get the Treasures on the very first run through the game since some require specific equipment to even fine much less get.

Secondly, you should always go back on previous missions since the devs may have added new unlockables with a recent update. (and its fun to mow through hordes of enemies that were previously difficult)

Make use of the assists should you not want to go though the effort of doing a mission again. Personal faves include super speed, turn and invincible or even using the photo mode to scout out.

Some Treasures require certain actions such as destroying several buoy’s to spawn in. There are also some that are timed events.

Make sure you have anti-sub weapons as some are hidden under water!

Nothing to see here!

Just wipe out the forces and you should get it

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
