How to unlock the A Thousand Words achievement

  • 43 1 7
    Alright history relics are one of the many different types of collectibles that be found in Mad Max. There are a total of 103 of them. They're most similar to scrap and can be found in Strongholds, outposts, looting locations, and vantage points. They look like little blue books.

    You should get most of these while going for the
    Mad MaxExplosions Are Not EnoughThe Explosions Are Not Enough achievement in Mad Max worth 67 pointsComplete all optional objectives in all camps
    and
    Mad MaxLooked EverywhereThe Looked Everywhere achievement in Mad Max worth 32 pointsLoot all Scavenging Locations
    achievements so you shouldn't focus on this until after completing those. It is worth noting that sometimes these will glitch out and become invisible and if that happens you just have to hold cn_A where the collectible should be.

    If after completing the game you still haven't gotten this achievement press start>collectibles>history relics. Look for any that show a question mark and then figure out what number it is by counting off from the bottom going left to right. You can use this detailed IGN guide to find the exact ones you're missing http://www.ign.com/wikis/mad-max/History_Relics#Relic_101

    Far left of Chum's tutorial/starting region is a scavenging location, at the point where the road loops, it won't appear until you're almost on top of it. It didn't appear because there're no scavenging crews for that region.

    aubrey345What an absolute god send this last guide is.

    Work from the top of your history collectibles left to right and it was bang on accurate.

    I'd missed the location on the far left of chums area as it didn't show up.

    100% thought my game had glitched but thank you Nacho, what a life saver!!!

    KonzhukAll the places pickings cleaned and the achievement of the booty received, and for no relics. 2 pieces missing. According http://www.ign.com/wikis/mad-max/History_Relics shows that not enough 51 and 92. At the same place all the collected and the achievement of the "corners searched" received. angry
    P.S. Technical service Xbox live promised to open this achievement with nearest updating console firmware. Hope it's true.

    King KoolaidIf you are missing Relic #75, it is located in Deep Friah's stronghold. Go in, to the right, up the stairs and take a left. It's in the back room. According the IGN Wiki, it is located during the Big Chief mission, but after you beat the game you cannot replay the mission. My guess is that if you miss it during the mission, as I did, they place it inside Deep Friah's stronghold as a backup.

    Relic #99 is missing on your IGN wiki page; it shows the pictures of Relic #13 for Relic #99, so we have no location for #99. It was the only one I was missing and it is found at the Wailing Wind Vantage Point, it's on the ground there under the north side of the big tent.
