Optional Collectibles are a main gameplay element in Life is Strange 2. Throughout the game, Sean Diaz can find various items and souvenirs that he can keep with him, some of which involve taking certain actions before becoming obtainable. Certain collectibles that come in the form of patches and key chains can be used to cosmetically decorate Sean's backpack. The optional collectibles section in his sketchbook will initially display sketches hinting towards the nature of what and/or where the collectible is, and will become replaced by the collectibles themselves as Sean discovers them.
