In this Little Nightmares 2 guide, we’ll help you find all 12 hats in the game.
You’ll start with one hat — the paper bag hat — by default. Two are part of DLC — the Mokujin Mask and the nome hat. The final one — the fedora hat (or, as we think of it, the Indiana Jones hat) — is a reward for completing the game. The remaining eight appear throughout Little Nightmares 2’s chapters, with two in each. Their locations are below, organized by chapter.
Raccoon hat | Chapter 1
There are two hats to find in Chapter 1 as you make your way through the woods, the swamp, and the house.
A little into the chapter, you’ll reach the house and enter through the kitchen. When you exit into the hallway, head down (toward the bottom of the screen) and into the room on the left side. This raccoon hat (coonskin cap?) is on the floor in the middle of the room.
Nome hat | Nome’s Attic DLC
If you have the Nome’s Attic DLC, there is technically a third hat in chapter 1. When you reach the attic, you’ll do some navigating to retrieve a key. Once you have the key, you’ll see a nome run past you to the right (but only if you have the DLC installed). Chase it to the left.
It’ll climb back up into the attic and try to hide from you. The numbers on the image above correspond to the steps below.
Follow the nome past the painting on the right. It’ll be dark in here, but just keep walking right until the nome lights a match.
The nome will stay roughly above you as you move, so lead it to the right along the walkway at the top of the room. When it runs out of places to walk, pull the cart over to it. It’ll jump on, and you can push it to the right some more.
Keep leading the nome right, and it’ll open a cage door for you, and light a lantern. Flip the switch in that room to turn on the lights in the attic, and then backtrack to the left.
Stay along the bottom of the screen. When you reach a filing cabinet, pull out the bottom drawer. Climb up, and follow the same path you led the nome along back into the caged room.
When you return to the cage, you’ll pick up the nome hat. (Follow the nome through the hole in the wall to return to your new friend.)
Rain hat | Chapter 1
After you escape the shotgun-wielding man, you’ll have to jump across a broken bridge with the help of your new friend.
Just on the other side of the gap, there’s a stack of cages against a tree. Climb those cages, and then jump to the left onto the hanging cage. Climb to the top, and jump a few times to knock it down. You’ll find the yellow rain hat inside.
Soccer ball hat | Chapter 2
There are two hats to find in chapter 2 as you work your way through the school and past the (horrifying) schoolteacher.
From the start of the chapter (after your ending-of-Titanic escape from the house), you’ll make your way through a couple buildings and past two TV set-based rope puzzles. After your encounter with the Poltergeist TV and the slow-motion hallway, you’ll head back to the city street where you’ll move a dumpster to reach a playground.
Cross the playground. You’ll find the old-fashioned soccer ball hat on top of the dumpster by the school’s front door. Head up to the (locked) door, and jump the railing to reach it.
Tin can hat | Chapter 2
A little later, after riding the elevator and a trip through the air ducts, you’ll reach the library.
As soon as you drop in, you’ll see a rolling ladder. Move it one shelf to the right, and then climb up to find the tin can hat.
Teddy bear hat | Chapter 3
After you escape the school, you’ll head into the hospital.
Shortly after your second Poltergeist-TV encounter, you’ll pass through an X-ray room and into a nursery. This is where you’ll find the stuffed animals and the cymbal-banging monkey toy (which is called a Jolly Chimp, apparently), one of which has the key inside it. Climb to the top of the shelves along the right wall to find the teddy bear hat.
Bandage hat | Chapter 3
After you pass a whole lot of mannequins and after your first encounter with the doctor, you’ll drop from the ceiling into the morgue.
As soon as you drop to the floor, head to the left. Once you’re pushed through the … body filing cabinet(?) continue left. Just past the dissection table, head to the door along the floor right next to the table. Inside, you’ll pick up the bandage hat (or maybe mummy hat).
[Ed. note: Content beyond Chapter 3 in Little Nightmares 2 is currently under embargo. We’ll update this guide with the rest of the hats at 10 a.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 12, 2020.]
