Collectible #1

The first dejected piece of baggage that you can reunite with its lost tag is the Steamer Trunk.

You can find its tag in the first area of Hollis’ Classroom, where she gives the students a lecture on Mental Connection. As soon as she leaves, the interns coerce Raz into demonstrating his abilities. Before doing so, however, you can go up to the central platform and look to the right. Here, on the far bench, you’ll be able to spot the Steamer Trunk tag.

As for the The Steamer Trunk itself, you will find that in a later area of the game, when you’re outside a hospital entrance. To find the Trunk, you need to make your way to the roof of the hospital. You can do this by jumping off the ambulances’ roof or by grappling onto the thought bubbles. Afterward, go to the far-left end of the roof, and here, snuggled in-between some vents, you’ll find the Steamer Trunk.

The second and final Emotional Baggage piece in Hollis’ Classroom in Psychonauts 2 is the Hat Box.

The tag for the Hat Box will be on the hospital roof in the same area as the Steamer Trunk. Only this time, you have to go to the far-right end of the roof. You’ll be able to easily spot the tag here on top of a metal chimney.

Thankfully, the Hat Box itself is also nearby. Simply get off of the roof, and go towards the right of the hospital entrance door. Here, right in the corner beside a dumpster, you can find the Hat Box, desperate to be reunited with its tag once more.
