To obtain this achievement you MUST explore a majority of the map. An easy method is to make sure you have uncovered all parts of the map. However, there are places on the map that seem to be uncovered only to update when you get closer. For example, at the waterfront in the town - after going around the corner on the far right when looking out at the water - this unlocked another location. As well, I entered a warehouse and killed all the enemies (as they were in the front). I then went to the back of that same warehouse and unlocked another location. The point is - search everywhere.

There are a fixed number of locations per ACT that need to be discovered.

ACT 1 -18 locations
ACT 2 -27 locations
ACT 3 -12 locations
ACT 4 -15 locations

A good method would be to check the in game tracker BEFORE you leave each act to ensure you have found them all.

BEWARE - There is a point of no return which will make this achievement missable.

If you are playing coop, make sure that one person does not run ahead in the hotel or the prison as this may cause a cut scene and pull players ahead.

EVERY PLAYER must visit each location themselves. This is not a group effort.

Stuck at 44 at the end of Act 2?

In ACT 2, there is one location (Western Warefront) that doesn't seem to have a quest attached to it (or not one that I did) and will seem uncovered if you found the eastern waterfront. But in order to unlock this you must journey closer to the warehouses in the SW area of the map.
