Optional Graffiti are a main gameplay element in Life is Strange: Before the Storm. They serve as an equivalent to the optional photos from Life is Strange. Throughout the game, Chloe Price may leave her "mark on the world" at various locations that the player can explore. These are often witty remarks, such as writing “not a meth lab” onto an old RV. Areas that can be used for graffiti are often hidden spaces. Some optional graffiti are only available after certain actions. The player will often be able to make a choice on what to write. Writing optional graffiti will award the player an achievement for that episode.
