You will not be able to pick up all of the tablets at the beginning. Many are found behind security doors and on other floors of the building that you get access to only when you complete a certain portion of the main story. We have therefore decided to list the tablets and their locations based on when you unlock them instead of their numerical order.
Tablets found after Sequence 1First time you are able to wander around Abstergo offices, you will be able to pick up 5 tablet computers. You have no security clearance, so these will all be found in publicly accessible areas on the second floor (helix research) of the building.
Tablet Document 01Tablet holding the first document is found on the floor in front of the elevator and reception desk of Helix research department.
Tablet Document 12Found on a chair in the conference room northeast of the reception desk. You can pick it up as you go to your main objective.
Tablet Document 08Employees left their Animus desks in a hurry and some of them left their tablets behind as well. This one is found on top of one of Animus’ desks.
Tablet Document 04You can’t enter the security room, because it is guarded, but you can pick up the tablet left on the floor in front of it.
Tablet Document 14Enter the men’s room to find another tablet.
Tablets found after Sequence 2As you finish your first “corrupted memory”, you will be waking up in Abstergo again. You need to restart the servers in the lobby and pick up all the tablets you can find along the way. You’ll also get level 1 security clearance, so you can now open doors with lvl 1 locks on them. You will find one tablet in Berg’s office on the second floor and four more are located in the lobby.
Tablet Document 03Your first task is to talk to Berg and you can find a tablet on a couch in his office.
Tablet Document 10As you exit the elevator into the lobby, you will see the tablet on the floor.
Tablet Document 13In the eastern part of the lobby look at the ground to find a tablet next to some lounge chairs.
Tablet Document 18Keep moving north towards the exit and you should see this collectible next to some stairs going down. No, you can’t escape Abstergo…
Tablet Document 07Go behind lounge chairs next to the west wall and you will find the last tablet in the lobby laying on the floor.
Tablets found after Sequence 3You have learned a lot about Shay in the Animus, but it is now time to come back to the real world and visit the fifteenth floor to talk to the CCO. She will grant you Security Clearance 2 so you will be able to access new areas, but only one tablet is hidden behind a lvl 2 locked door.
Tablet Document 15As you get to the 15th floor go towards the CCO’s office, but before you enter go to the right corner to find a tablet on the floor.
Tablet Document 06After talking to the CCO, (or before that) go outside on the balcony. Beside a beautiful winter city landscape, you will be able to find another Tablet document.
Tablet Document 02As you reach your main mission objective, you will find your next tablet behind lvl 2 security access door.
Tablet Document 05Go back to the second floor, where you Animus is and go into the northeast room, which you couldn’t access before. With Level 2 security clearance, you can now enter the room and find the last Tablet document collectible for now.
Tablets found after Sequence 6This is the last time you will wander around Abstergo, so make it count. If you missed any of the tablets previously, you can now pick them all up. You have now seen all the secrets, so you are granted security level access 3 and can access all the previously locked rooms (and find tablets inside). You also get to visit the basement as part of the main mission.
Tablet Document 17Go to the basement and as you make your way towards the mission’s objective, you should see the glow of a tablet in the dark.
Tablet Document 20There are lvl 3 access rooms found in the eastern corridor. I explored these before I repaired the computer for the main mission, so it was still very dark, but you can come back here after you enabled the computers and the lights turn back on. I found it easier to spot the tablet in the dark though.
Tablet Document 11As you are about to take the elevator down to the server room, you will come across a table laying on the floor.
Tablet Document 09Instead of going back to your Aniumus, go to the lobby. There were two lvl 3 access doors there and east room holds the tablet with document 9 on it.
Tablet Document 16There are two rooms you can enter now on the second floor (that you couldn’t reach without lvl 3 access). West room has a tablet placed next to a printer on a shelf on the west wall of that room.
Tablet Document 19Last collectible I picked up is located in a level 3 security access room in the eastern part of the second floor. It is found on the floor among some scattered magazines and books.
Reward – English percussion flintlock pistols
After you collect all of the Tablet Documents, you will be rewarded with the Final Tablet Document entry. It is a painting depicting a wooden bridge with a church in a background and a big red X marking the spot where you need to dig for your treasure.
You are now minutes from finishing the main story of the game and you will be put into free roaming mode of the world afterwards. When you are in free roam go to Sleepy Hollow in River Valley. There is a church here and a bridge with wood cover. When you approach one of the graves in the second row from the stone wall, you will be able to dig and uncover your English percussion flintlock pistols. These are pretty strong pistols with 5 damage, 3 stun, and 5 range. This concludes the Tablet Documents story, congratulations on finishing the game and finding all Tablet Document collectibles.
