Looks like the PS4 vs Xbox One battle is turning one-sided as far as sales victories are concerned....
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Amulets Locations Guide
The collectibles in Max: The Curse of Brotherhood comprise of 2 things:
- Finding and destroying all 75 Evil Eyes
- Finding and combining all 18 Amulet Pieces
And just like Evil Eyes, these pieces are scattered throughout the seven chapters of the game. The Achievements tied with this collectible are:
- Lost and Found = 5G
- Some Assembly Required = 5G
- Amulet Hunter = 50G
- Tree of Life = 75G
The pieces can be collected in any order but this guide has been written in chapter’s ascending order. Furthermore, to provide better references, I’ve linked my Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Evil Eyes Locations which will help you in a much better way.
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Amulets Locations
Chapter #1 – Sea of Sand
Location: After getting the second and third Evil Eye, you’ll have to build four pillars to cross the quicksand.
The trick is to build the last pillar a little above the ground. Get on the pillar and jump to a small hidden area to find the first Amulet piece.
Chapter #1 – Black Rock Canyon
Location: After collecting the sixth Evil Eye, you’ll have to evade a Critter with the next Amulet in the top-right corner of your screen; accessed via crawling.
In order to reach it, you’ll have to take out the Spikester. After that, build the pillar to its full height and grab the Amulet piece.
Chapter #1 – The Crossing
Location: After collecting the eleventh Evil Eye, you’ll see a Critter right next to a Sucker. Evade the Critter in such a manner that it gets sucked by the Sucker.
Hop over the creature and build the pillar. Jump to your right and you will get the Amulet piece.
Chapter #2 – Roots
Location: Once you learn about creating branches, head down to the pink pit and you’ll see an Amulet piece in the top-left corner of your screen.

Grab the third branch and re-create the second branch so that it leads directly to the Amulet piece.

Location: During the slow motion sequence, create a vine and swing to your left. Create the second vine and reach the platform; the camera angle will change revealing the Amulet piece.
Connect both vine and branch and cut down the vine so that you could reach the upper area leading to the Amulet piece.
Chapter #2 – Tomb of the Giants
Location: After destroying the Evil Eye #30; attach the vine to the branch and reach the Amulet piece above.
