So I'm mostly copying a outline from another location discovery achievement but felt this achievement needed a better solution than the "just explore" solution and also I have never done a solution before so hopefully it's not too bad for everyone.

To view unlocked locations go to the map, and press the Y button to view from ORBIT, and then select the location and press LS (the left analog stick) to view progress

Locations should contain:
Sandblast Scar (4)
Devil's Razor (13)
The Great Vault (2)
Cathedral of the Twin Gods (5)
Destroyer's Rift (4)
Konrad's Hold (12)
The Splinterlands (6)
Guts of Carnivora (5)
Carnivora (5)
The Droughts (13)
Covenant Pass (3)
Ascension Bluff (5)
The Slaughter Shaft (1)

If you're like me and was 77/78 for a while you likely haven't found The Slaughter Shaft, an area accessible through Konrad's Hold and is NOT story related so can be missed very easily.

If you have more than one location missing and have the whole map uncovered likelihood is that an area or two didn't register as discovered despite you having been there. I have found a lot of people (including myself) having the same issue with The Splinterlands for example with Pitt's Stop being discovered but upon arriving there again being met with the 'Area Discovered' indicator and thus now registering.

Hope this helps and let me know if any other areas are similar to my problem with the Splinterlands, I'll try to update if so.

EDIT: Some people have said if you don't get the achievement while having explored all areas to explore them all once more in a single instance/session and it should unlock, others also said that loading the game without the DLC got them the achievement so be wary until a patch comes along to fix things
GoldendexterAny idea how to get into that arena area in Ascension Bluff? The one behind the gem doors.

Calex dEUS@ Goldendexter you can't, if it's the same one I'm thinking of. It's not needed. There are videos of people using cars to boost jump to it and it's empty. Likely for a boos fight in future content.

FranconianXI have an issue with Destroyer’s Rift. It only says 3/4 despite running through the level three times and got all location names on the screen (access through portal in Nekrotafeyo).
Posted by FranconianX on 26 Sep 19 at 21:09
kuemmetFor me it's 2 locations that won't unlock in The Splinterlands. Entire map opened, re-visited every place about 5 times now.

Cellar AtticFor Konrad's Hold, there is a location called the General's Nest that looks like it's been revealed. It's in the mill, after you ride up the elevator but before you jump across the broken bridge. Go up the stairs after riding the elevator and out onto the small landing area. Boom.

UniQ G4M3R NLI had 78/78 too. For me, Pitt's Stop in The Splinterlands was bugged. After fast travelling, I first went to Logan's Spar, and then back to Pitt's Stop. Now it suddenly showed 'Area Discovered' and unlocked the achievement, even though I already discovered it.

BellatrixzI had 77/78 locations after visiting the Slaughter Shaft, turns out i had missed a location on Konrad's Hold, i found a video of exactly where it is (Not my video). If you're missing any locations after going everywhere maybe you have missed the same location as i did, the achievement popped right after.

mak 90I had 78/78 locations as well. For me it was Logan's Spar in The Splinterlands. Logan's Spar is very close to Pitt's Stop. There are maps online that shows exactly where it is. Even though I had been there before, when I went back there the achievement popped right away.

Brett Holte10I have 77/78 but I went through each Pandora location while in orbit and looked at each locations checklist, and they all have 100% location data checked off. Any thoughts?
Posted by Brett Holte10 on 25 Oct 19 at 02:17
Full Tilt PanicIt is safe to say this may be bugged? I have all locations like some others, but no ach. either. I tried revisiting places but not luck. Kinda annoying how they did this.
Posted by Full Tilt Panic on 30 Oct 19 at 19:46
Twice the A@Brett Holte10. It was the same for me on another account. Said 77/78 even though each individual location said completed. It was the circle of slaughter in Konrad's Hold. Never actually went through the map transition door to "discover" it. Doesn't show up as a location to check off.

DingadillyTried a few sanctuary teleport out and teleport back in, driving away from Pitt stop and driving back, driving away and walking back, using the vending machines, jumping around the black area boundary ( trying to escape and fall back into the map _ yes it was getting desperate) driving out to devil razor and re entering both in vehicle and on foot.

What worked for me, from sanctuary, map devils razor- roland rest, from there drove to the north? exit marked the splinter lands, no dice. So dumped the car near the catch a ride ( dont think it really mattered where) what I then did was jump around near the devils razor exit I'd just drove through. That was enough for the game to finally register it.
Your mileage may vary as always.

MazzieeeeeeeeeeSame here for me: 78/78 no cheevo but as mentioned above by @mak_90 re-visited The Splinterlands, then fast travel to Pitt Stop and walk up not far to near where the Typhoon Log and it counted as a new location "Logans Spurs"

Born Again GenIf you are still missing a location try logan’s spar. Its a pain in the ass and easy to miss. Google it for the location

MrNoLuckFoxBeen trying Pitt's stop and Logan's Spar. But even after discovering/entering still doesn't pop achievement.

kids got soulSame issue as the last posts. Have tried all the fixes and nothing worked. What’s worse is that ever since the recent patch areas I’ve been to are showing the new area discovered graphics as if I’ve never been there. Thinking I can’t 100% this game without an entirely new game which I’m not inclined to do knowing I could run into the same glitch...
Posted by kids got soul on 27 Apr 20 at 17:20
BioFire6478/78 as well, no achievement and have tried above suggestions. It would appear the recent patch has bugged this as I am now seeing places I have already visisted showing as discovered and I am not going all the way through the game again... I suppose some of us will have to wait for a fix.
Posted by BioFire64 on 27 Apr 20 at 21:00
RainleafI made a new game with a new char from lvl 1 and i played on solo all the way, finished the game and got 78/78 and still no achiev.
Posted by Rainleaf on 28 Apr 20 at 18:37
SiegfriedXSame thing. Everything is showing as new area now after the patch and I have 78/78 GODDAMN IT GEARBOX!
Posted by SiegfriedX on 28 Apr 20 at 18:45
ZaBettsSame issues as above 78/78 and discovered areas showing up as newly discovered, hope this gets fixed soon
Posted by ZaBetts on 28 Apr 20 at 21:29
SiegfriedXSo, I ran through the entire planet again in one sitting and the achievement popped. But I did not get the one for every area in the game, so, unless you wanna run through the entire game again and PRAY TO GOD it doesn't crash a single time, you should be able to unlock all achievements.

I tried doing it. Twice. But with so many running around and teleporting, the game will most likely crash before you can run through it entirely. It did for me twice anyway before I gave up trying and it never crashed while I was playing normally.

So, I call the achievement for all areas as almost unobtainable until a patch comes out to fix the mess they created. Either that or you are extremely patient and lucky to run through it all without a crash.
Posted by SiegfriedX on 29 Apr 20 at 02:56
RainleafI deleted the game and installed it back with no dlcs, I ran to all the areas in one go which took a few hours but I got all 5 achievs I was missing.

Also have in mind I did not visit the ship aka sanctuary as it did reset my counter in Pandora last time.
Posted by Rainleaf on 29 Apr 20 at 03:24
JamesonCan confirm what other folks are saying - I ran through Pandora and Promethea in one sitting last night, both popped. I did not attempt to do the all locations achievement, as I already had it.

SparerSpy3Would you happen to know if I went into someone’s game that had all named locations found. Would I get those achievements or do I have to find them in my game
