Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time clue bottle and safe locations guide
Clan of the Cave Raccoon [Episode 3]
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #1
The first Clue Bottle is on the roof of the hideout. You can climb up the vertebrae on the skeleton next to the hideout.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #2
Near the entrance to the hideout is a totem pole. Bounce up here with the pink mushroom to find another bottle.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #3
West of the hideout, just past some broken tracks, you'll spot a bird's nest that holds another bottle.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #4
From the nest, head northwest along the tightropes. Along the massive skeleton that lines the slope is another Clue Bottle. You'll have to jump to it from one of the protruding bones.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #5
Continue up the bones to find another Clue Bottle nestled in the mammoth skull's eye socket.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #6
Cross the tightrope from behind the mammoth skull to find a large ice sculpture. Scale it to find another Clue Bottle.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #7
There's a rope that runs from where you crossed from the mammoth skull. Follow it to find another bottle atop a rock.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #8
Drop from this rock and head south. There's a low ledge that extends past the map. Drop to it to find a Clue Bottle.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #9
Just north of Clue Bottle #7 is a catapulting dinosaur. You'll find a Clue Bottle bobbing on its tail.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #10
Just north of the dinosaur is a tall rock you can scale using bounce pads. Reach the peak and use the Sly's cane to slide down the zip line. You'll collect this bottle along the way.
*Note* As stated in the video, I mistakenly collected this bottle during my exploration run. It's over the zip line and can't be missed if you slide down it.
.♦ CLUE BOTTLE #11
Almost straight ahead from where the zip lines ends is a walkway where the next Clue Bottle awaits.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #12
Now move cross behind the hideout, heading northwest. Across a rope you'll spot another bottle on a tall rock. Bounce up to it with a pink mushroom.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #13
Cross the next rope heading northwest to find another bottle bobbing on it.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #14
On the other side of the rope, you'll spot this Clue Bottle nestled in another skeleton.

Head east to find another catapult dinosaur with another Clue Bottle in its tail.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #16

♦ CLUE BOTTLE #17

♦ CLUE BOTTLE #18
From up here, you can cross a rope that head northeast to another high-altitude bird's nest where another bottle awaits.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #19
Northwest of Clue Bottle #14, you'll find a bird's nest on a ledge, with the next Clue Bottle resting in it.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #20
Behind the birds nest, you should spot a large skeleton. The Clue Bottle is floating in it's rib cage.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #21
Just to the South is a geyser. Paraglide into it to shoot into the Clue Bottle high in the air.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #22
Head to the northern area of the map to find a series of tightropes. This Clue Bottle bops atop them.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #23
Just southwest of Clue Bottle #22 is another geyser. Paraglide into it to reach the Clue Bottle nestled in the tall fossil nearby.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #24
Near Clue Bottle #22 is a safe spot to drop into the map's lower area. Down here, you'll find a bridge. Ride a flowing chunk of ice under the bridge to find another bottle.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #25
East of the bridge is a very tough-to-spot Clue Bottle floating in the eye socket of an upside-down mammoth skull.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #26
Just south is a tall rock that holds another Clue Bottle. The best way to get there is to use the paraglider from a higher ledge.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #27
Return to the bridge and follow the edge southwest to find a spine protruding from the water. Hop across the vertebrae to find a bottle on the other side.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #28
Cross the nearby bridge and follow the path as it loops around. You'll spot a Clue Bottle behind a cave column as you do.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #29
As you continue along the path, you'll reach a tightrope that extends over the river with the moving ice chunks. Cross it to find a massive spine protruding far out of the water. Hop up the extended pieces to reach another Clue Bottle.
♦ CLUE BOTTLE #30
Return to the ledge where the tightrope started and continue following the path as it heads southwest. You'll find the final Clue Bottle hovering above a toxic pool.
♦ SAFE ♦
Return to the bridge near Clue Bottle #27 and take the path south, where you'll find the Safe in a dim cave.
