The Sifu Detective Board is a show of your determination for revenge.

Sifu allows you to collect various bits of information on your targets, along with keys which can drastically change your route across each of the five levels. But how do you find each of these items and where exactly are they located?

Luckily, we've put in the work to mark down each item location across every level in the game, so you can fill out your Sifu Detective Board in no time. 

  • You'll still need to do a whole load of fighting, so be sure you are equipped with the best Sifu skills

Sifu Detective Board: The Squats

The Squats is the first up on your Sifu Detective Board, and holds 17 collectible items, including two sets of keys. We'll mark these down in the order you should come across them. 

Avenue Door/ Skull Letter

Sifu Detective Board: Avenue Door

Once you have taken out the first two guards and entered the building, go through the open doorway to the left. You will see the Avenue Door which is currently locked. By approaching it, you will be able to collect a small Skull Letter, which confirms that it is well and truly locked. And to count the door itself, just interact with it, trying to get it open.

For this Sifu Detective Board collectible, instead of heading towards the Avenue Door, climb up the wall as you walk into the building, and you will notice someone passed out on the couch. When you approach them, you will be given a prompt to interact, and it will earn you the Addicts collectible. 

Purple Mist

After passing the Addicts collectible, ascend a couple of floors, before you need to make a jump across to another building. You will land in a room full of bunk beds and few thugs to take down. On the left there is a kitchen where you will find the Purple Mist Sifu Detective Board collectible. 


Sifu Detective Board: Bills found next to a couch.
Click to enlarge

The Bills collectible can be found after you jump through the rooftop to face one of the bigger Juggernauts for the first time, where you will be taught how to throw an enemy. The Bills can be found on a desk next to a couch, and the Juggernaut collectible will be accounted for by defeating him. 

Club Flyer

The Club Flyer collectible can be found soon after you collect the Bills. After dropping down an elevator shaft, you will enter a room full of enemies. Once you've defeated the lot of them, head over to a table in the corner of the room, which has piles of money on top. You will find the Club Flyer sitting at the end of the table. 

Metal Gate/Bunch Of Keys/Skull Brothers

Sifu Detective Board:  Skull brothers.

The Meta Gate will come immediately after the Club Flyer encounter once you've left the room. Head up to the gate at the end of the hall and try to interact with it. It will be locked. Then go through the door to your left where you will encounter the Skull Brothers which counts as its own collectible. Once you've taken them out, you will be rewarded with a Bunch Of Keys. These keys can also be used for the Avenue Door, on your next run. 

Purple Flower

You'll have to head into the drug warehouse to collect the Purple Flower, but you'll have to go through this area even if you take the shortcut, so it's impossible to bypass. This is the biggest fight before you encounter Fajar. Once you have beaten everyone up, on one of the tables towards the exit, you'll notice a tray of purple flowers. Approach it and collect your Purple Flower Sifu Detective Board collectible. 

Keycard 206/Private Room Door

In the final room before Fajar, you will notice Keycard 206, sitting on a table as you walk in. This won't come into play until you tackle the fifth level, but it is also integral to unlocking the Private Room Door, which you will find in the same room behind a metal sheet and scaffolding. Interact with this door to add it to your Sifu Detective Board.

The last collectible of The Squats level is Hongbao, which can be found once you've unlocked the Private Room Door. This of course means that you essentially have to complete the game before coming back with the new keys.

This Sifu Detective's Board collectible is slightly more complicated to unlock. Firstly, take out the bodyguard at the entrance to The Club. Once you've entered speak to the person standing at the desk, selecting the "Sean?" prompt. He will alert two more guards. Defeat those guards and return to the desk, and you will get another chance to speak with him, and he will inform you that fighters need passes.

After beating the fight on the dance floor, you will have the option to approach two doors. The one on the left of the dance floor is the Code Door, which will be locked, the other, the Access Door, is on the right and also locked. The Code Door won't be unlocked until you unlock the Club Code in The Museum.
