Mafia 3 collectibles are worth finding, from Playboy Magazines to Mafia 3 Vargas Paintings, each one is satisfying. The best way is to hack into Junction Boxes which will reveal the location of all collectibles in the vicinity. However, it will take some time as you need to look for a certain device to hack into these boxes.
You will need TL-49 Fuses to wiretap junction boxes. These fuses are scattered all over New Bordeaux. Usually, you can find them near trash cans, rooftops, ledges, underground passages etc.
Wiretapping becomes available once you complete “Story Mission: Smack” mission. It takes three TL-49 fuses to wiretap a single junction box. You can always find at least one fuse close by when you reach a box. Head over here to know more about Junction Boxes and how to hack in.
One of the collectibles we have are Mafia 3 Vargas Paintings but sadly there is no achievement for it but still, a collector doesn’t think like that.
