18/18 Locations

In total, you'll need to find 18 locations across all 3 of these areas. Keep in mind this achievement is *TIME* Consuming. You'll also need to uncover the whole map of that area. Here is a list of all areas for this achievement;

It might help to explore ALL the edges of the map as well where the dark blue shadow is that looks hidden on your map. You can tell if you completed the map area by the white lining around the map. I strongly suggest re-looking at your map to really see the hidden "dark area":

Sanctuary (6/6)

*Crimson Raiders HQ – In an alleyway, right next to claptraps stand you shouldn't miss it but sometimes when you wanna get back to it might be a little challenging since Marcus Guns looks the same. Also there is a door to open for it to uncover. You'll see an old face Dr. Tannis cut-scene.
*Scooters – Right in the start should have a tired sign on the front saying Scooter just like in the first game DLC. He has a 2 story garage.
*Marcus Munitions – Marcus’s sign says Guns it’s in an alleyway right next to a knocked over medical vending machine shop.
*Dr. Zeds 24/7 Clinic – Right next to Scooters he has a sign of Dr. Zeds 24/7 Clinic it’s a red needled sign can’t miss it. It’s a little bloody/gory there.
*Moxxxi's Bar – You really can’t miss this looks like a strip club almost it’s the place that’s all lit up playing music 24/7 and has 2 slot machines that will help you get better weapons sometimes rare guns.
*Claptraps - Not sure if you need it but it's party of Sanctuary. He's in the back next to the HQ.

Opportunity (7/7)

*The Pits - Far Corner of the map has a bunch of sand here. Looks like an unfinished construction site.
* Residential Quarter – In the way back of the Map. There is an Hyperion Station there with a glowing H.
* Orbital Delivery Zone – Kind of looks like an air port, you can’t miss it.
* Waterfront District – Right by the glass building that’s in the water. (Some people said they found Jimmy Jenkins here)
* Opportunity Square – Smack dab right in the middle of Opportunity. Looks like a Mall.
* Living Legend Plaza – Can’t be hard to miss. Has a big Jack statue in this area probably the first Jack statue you’ll see. Constructors will spawn here.
* Hyperion Office Complex – There are two diamond trees in front of this office building. On the right side from where you spawn in.

Lynchwood (5/5)

* Main Street – Should be the first area you hit. Looks like a town with train tracks in front of you.
* The Grinders – You’ll see Grinders around you they are big and they’ll be smashing the ground.
**Missable Area* It's towards the end of all the Grinders just got past the grinders and you should get the achievement soon as it unlocks this is where I got mine.
* Death Row Refinery - Have to take an elevator to get up to this area. When you get off turn around and you’ll see some sort of small Refinery.
* The Old Mine – Have to take an elevator down to get to this area. Should be on the left from where you are walking. It’s a big mine it’ll be circular on your map.
* Gunslinger's Corner – Far left corner of the map right behind main street has a bunch of enemies there shouldn’t miss but make sure you go further ahead to uncover the whole thing.
