How to unlock the Field cook achievement

  • 18 2 2
    Items required:
    - Firewood, from cutting down a tree;
    - Kindling, like rags (from cutting up clothes) or paper (from ammo boxes);
    - Matches or hand drill;
    - Long stick, from cutting down a bush;
    - Venison steak, from killing a deer/buck.

    First thing to do is go hunting. I've tried all sorts of animals (chicken, boar, wolves) but they all don't make the achievement pop. The only animal which will make this achievement pop is a deer/buck. After killing it (easily found north-west and south-west of Devil's Castle) go and skin it. Take the meat, which will be the Venison steak.

    Next make a fireplace by combining the firewood and kindling. Light this up with the matches. Combine your long stick with the Venison steak and roast the meat on your created fireplace. After a full circle the Venison stick changes color and the achievement will unlock.

    HuNTeRSPAIt is required to hunt an actual male deer? Cause I just got a female one and cooked the meat but achievement didn't pop at all, not even the other one for using the knife to get the meat. 😞 Also tried with Wolf meat but same result. Any advise? I should keep trying looking for more male deer or other animals?

    Edit: Just tried with chicken meat and nothing. I didn't realise until now that I still had one more last piece of Venison meat from yesterday on my backpack placed on another longstick, so I tried with that one again and inmediately the trophy popped without issues finally. 😁

    Gloss666I think this may have changed with the last patch, i was cooking chicken last night and the first piece after cooking it for one cycle made the achievement pop for me.
