Psychonauts 2 contains several types of collectibles, including memory vaults scattered throughout the many levels of the game. Memory vaults look like small, green bank vaults modeled after pigs. Memory vaults are often found in secret locations, which can be hard to find.
When memory vaults are hit with a melee attack, they release information and photos about other characters. Each memory vault gives some extra backstory for players interested in these characters. With a bit of guidance, finding each of the 20 memory vaults in Psychonauts 2 can be very easy.
Some levels have multiple memory vaults, while the majority just have one. The vaults are generally hidden behind other objects or tucked in corners. The following locations hold memory vaults:
Loboto’s Labyrinth– To the left of the painting of Loboto in the central office behind the shelves.

Each of these memory vaults must be chased down, but the rewards are worth it. Especially for players with interest in Psychonauts 2 lore, the information is priceless. Not unlike finding items for the scavenger hunt, finding memory vaults is immensely satisfying. The comics contained within the vaults hold valuable backstories that shed light on the current situation.
