About Treasures

Treasures are hidden items found throughout the Uncharted series. Collecting them in Uncharted 2 serves primarily to unlock trophies, and reward you with ingame currency as a byproduct of that. They’re only visible in-game as a brief flash of light every few seconds, and as such they can be easy to miss.
