How To Find And Unlock Secret Stashes In Hades

Now that Hades is out of early access development, the full release is finally available on PC and Nintendo Switch.

This rogue-like action game has plenty of unlockables to find, including Secret Stashes.

How To Find And Unlock Secret Stashes In Hades

To help you find these Secret Stashes and unlock them all, we’ve created this guide on how to get them.

It will tell you how to find them and what you need to do to unlock them.

How To Unlock The Secret Stashes

You can open the Keepsakes cabinet in Skelly’s room just before beginning a new run once you’ve obtained your first Keepsake in the game by giving a jar of Nectar to an NPC.

If you look at it, you’ll notice six golden slots at the bottom that have been marked as Secret Stashes as well as all of the Keepsakes you’ve so far unlocked.

In reality, these are slots set aside for legendary Keepsakes, or companions, which you can get later in the game after fortifying your bond with particular characters.

If you wish to quickly access those Secret Stashes, you should concentrate on developing affinities with the following characters:

  • Achilles
  • Dusa
  • Megaera
  • Sisyphus
  • Skelly
  • Thanatos

Gaining Affinity With Characters

By giving them Nectar as a present and completing a personal quest for them, you can unlock companions.

Then, using the rare currency Ambrosia which is mostly acquired through bounties, you can deepen your bond with those companions or upgrade them even further.

When you have a strong enough bond with a character, their affinity gauge will display a heart with a keyhole, allowing you to approach them and accept their unique quest.

The Secret Stash that you’ve unlocked can be found in the Keepsakes cabinet once you’ve gotten close enough to a character and finished their quest, rewarding you with a Legendary Keepsake.

Achilles

Achilles can be found in the House of Hades. Once you’ve strengthened your bond, Achilles will request that Zagreus change the agreement that has him working for Hades.

Use Nyx to help you find the pact, then pay five diamonds at the House Contractor to have the modification made.

In Elysium, Achilles will now be at Patroclus’ side. You can give him an Ambrosia when he goes back to the House of Hades.

Once this quest is complete, you will be given Companion Antos. The effect is that your summon deals damage to two enemies consecutively.

Dusa

Dusa can be found in the House of Hades. Once you’ve strengthened your bond, the House Contractor will now have Lounge renovations for sale.

You must purchase 12 renovations, and these must include at least one rug and cleaning up the mess that Cerberus made.

Once this quest is complete, you will be given Companion Fidi. The effect is that your summon will travel with you for a while, firing petrifying shots.

Megaera

Megaera can be found in the House of Hades, Tartarus.

Once you’ve strengthened your bond, a conversation will occur where she says that she’s only trying to prevent your escape because she must after a certain number of encounters with her and her sisters.

Once this quest is complete, you will be given Companion Battie. The effect is that your summon will deal damage in the area of the closest enemy, but it cannot be used against Megaera or her sisters.

Sisyphus

Sisyphus can be found in various locations around the Underworld.

Once you’ve strengthened your bond, you will need to purchase access to the Administrative Chamber from the House Contactor, and speak to Megaera about Sisyphus’ situation, then have two separate conversations with Nyx about the Administrative Chamber and Sisyphus.

Within the Administrative Chamber, locate the Sisyphus file. When you obtain the file, you can pay the House Contractor four diamonds to purchase the Knave-King’s Sentence. Once the job is complete, you can give Sisyphus some Ambrosia.

Once this quest is complete, you will be given Companion Shady. The effect is that your summon will deal some area damage and drop some health, Darkness, and Obols.

Skelly

Skelly can be found in the House of Hades. Once you’ve strengthened your bond, in exchange for a total of five Titan Blood, he will demand that you kill him using the Stygian Blade’s level five Zagreus Aspect.

After completion, you can present Skelly with an Ambrosia.

Once this quest is complete, you will be given Companion Rib. The effect is that your summon will create a decoy distraction with 250 health.

Thanatos

Sisyphus can be found in the House of Hades and various locations around the Underworld.

Once you’ve strengthened your bond, give him six Nectars to randomly prompt a conversation regarding Zagreus being strong enough to escape the Underworld. After this conversation, you can gift him with Ambrosia.

Once this quest is complete, you will be given Companion Mort. The effect is that your summon will deal high area damage in front of you, but it cannot be used against Thanatos.

Final Thoughts

With this guide, you’ll be able to unlock all the Secret Stashes in Hades and use the Legendary Keepsakes they yield.

This will give you a better fighting chance against the foes you’ll face in the Underworld.
