    This is the easiest "discover all named locations" cheevo in BL3.

    I would highly recommend to unlock most of the locations while your first playthrough since you're always near those locations while doing the main mission.

    You can also do this after you beat the game. To get this achievement easier, don't turn Mayhem Mode / True Hunter Mode on, just to get it rushed.

    There is a location you can't unlock without doing a particular side mission.
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    I added a list of all those locations in Nekrotafeyo.

    If you have trouble to unlock this achievement while you're playing co-op, try to do it solo. Breakingbrie and One Eyes Tigh (from the other guide, check it out!) pointed out that it didn't work for them going while playing with someone else. Thanks and credits to them for this information!

    Nxbl@z RagnaroK z I did it without problems. And in addition to that I didn't enter Mayhem mode because it was easier for me without all the trouble. I would try and do it like you just said. Quit the game, start it again and re-visit the locations. It may be annoying but at the end it should work. Sad to hear that many people have problems with this achievement since recent updates but people are still unlocking this specific achievement. I hope y'all can complete the game soon!

    Shadow@nxbl yeah but you was a host or doing it by yourself or 2019 wasn't bugged. Yeah guys presume this is a current bug as i have found all 27 locations as of today, It probably was broken with their last hotfixes. I shall keep you guys posted with any news.
    So if you played the game through on CO-OP but you WAS NOT THE HOST you will need to rediscover all locations again on those area's need them chevio's. I hoped this helps anyone.

    breakingbrieMy husband and I just ran straight through every location on the entire planet of Nekrotafeyo on co-op and neither of us got it to pop. All in one sitting with no changing any settings. I suppose next is to Run through it solo each to see if we can pop it. This game is a mess of glitches.

    This is a companion to the guide already listed here, which gives you accurate locations and names. I suggest using it to try to get the achievement. But if you encounter an issue, like I did, try this:

    I had discovered all of them through a combination of solo and co-op, but no achievement. I noticed that some areas I had been to before in co-op would come up as “discovered” and others were “entering,” implying that only the solo ones had counted. So I went through and used the above guide to check off each one as I went, but did it across two sessions. No achievement. On a hunch, I went through all of Nekrotafeyo’s named locales in one sitting, and it finally popped. So if you’re having trouble, this might work for you.
