Generation Zero has many Collectables scattered all over the map for the player to collect. These come in the form of Dalahäst , Gnomes, Mixtapes, Blueprints, and World Locations. The first major DLC, Alpine Unrest, adds Audio Logs, Character Biographies, and Vacation Photos. The second major DLC, FNIX Rising, adds Love Letters and Survivor's Notes.
They can be found in a variety of places, from cars and trucks to the inside of houses and sheds or out in a field. They reward the player with 250 XP each time they pick one up. World Locations are unique in the way that the player does not have to physically pick them up but they get one granted whenever the player crosses into the region for the first time, upon receiving the collectable the player gets a bit of lore for the area.
