    I appreciate your attempt at creating this guide but I have found that there are allot of errors which ends up being frustrating. Please revise this guide!

  • blurry444

    This is a great guide! For those still having trouble finding the armor and weapons just bring Chop with you to the general location marked on the map and have him hunt for pick-ups

  • Shay Wasserman

    The numbers dont match the map

    • Astral_Element

      Yeah, thats right. The that the numbering is off unfortunately.

  • Robbie

    stupid map its not accurate I was looking for grenades and when I got to location 43 it was body armor. So I have to assume the map is totally inaccurate

  • Robbie

    I know there is a bunch of weapons and armor under water because I found them when doing the submarine missions. but hey are a pain to get since the sub is so slow and the stupid shark will get you you can’t fight him underwater
