EDIT 27/12/19: ilMaTic BUTCH3R has managed to locate the Hidden Orb map and screenshots! Huzzah! Please refer to his solution for the weblink.

The rest of my solution is here for posterity in case any of the other points or comments help you.

[Edited on 13/12/14: The hidden orb map is no longer available so I have deleted the link. However another map is included in the screenshots. As I said before, download the images!]

If like me you started collecting the Hidden Orbs a long time ago using the Candied Skull source, but never finished this tedious job, you'll be worried to find that the website no longer exists. I was going through each of the orbs in the numbered order, which the YouTube solution cannot help you with unfortunately.

Thankfully someone else is now hosting the original map and Hidden Orb screenshots.

Hidden Orb map & screenshots (Google+ user 'Frode Knutsen'):

Frode is very kindly public sharing the screenshots, however I would suggest that you download the album on to your own computer because it takes at least six hours to get all the Orbs and this album may not be available indefinitely.

This might seem obvious, however I strongly suggest you attempt this achievement, the Agility Orbs and the Stunt Markers when all gangs have been eliminated. Do not resurrect the gangs, it will make your life hell.
OnzaI definitely like pictures better than videos! Thank you!

DrewstenDoing this with gangs isn't nearly as bad as you make it sound, I did the agility orbs with all the gangs and didn't have much problem but I suppose it would make it easier. Thanks for the map.

Ginn0rzI'm glad the gangs weren't an issue for you. My experience was very different, particularly for the stunt markers - the gang and police cars kept getting in the way of the trucks all the time, it was intensely frustrating!

Greggie SmallzzI second not having to do this with the gangs. Especially in the last section with the guys that have the heat seeking rockets. I used the pictures and map used in the links for this solution, top notch!

WhiskeyCharlieAny advice how to get 181 on the bridge from the Volk area. Its the bridge with white support cables. The orb is on the very top. Thanks in advance.

WhiskeyCharlieI finally figured it out. Now just 10 more to go.

alexautumnI can't find the statue where the 71th hidden orb is. Is it possible the statue to be destroyed?

matdanWell this sucks. YouTube playlist gone and now site not working.

Ginn0rzThanks for letting me know the link expired for the map. Frode's Google+ profile is still available and another map is found there, it is the first image.

matdanThanks hope it works on a phone.

Crackhaw2cant find hidden orb 150 the area in the picture doesn't even exist
Posted by Crackhaw2 on 15 Dec 14 at 13:49
Ginn0rzI think it's inside the circular building? I used all of these photos to get the achievement.

Law ViolationOrb 99 will be the very last one. I thought i fucked up. i had 299 when i got to orb 300 marked on the map. Turns out, there are 301 photos and the last one will be located as number 99 on the map. number 99 and 100 are in very similar places so be mindful when it comes to finding them.

l BlackBrian7 lI got stuck on 299/300 and had to go back over a lot of them, but finally found the mistake.
Turns out I collected no.209 and thought it was 208. Then marked 209 as not found. 208 is above up in the cave. Just thought id share this in case someone else does the same by mistake!

I3345T IVIOD3Been through this all 2 times now. Awesome guide but 71 is not there. The statue was already gone before I started this.

HangmanK7same... no statue. sucks. spent all day meticulously going through these for nothing!!

Mr GranstaffHow do you download the album? I don't use Google + hardly at all and any option to do so doesn't really stick out to me. Thanks!
Posted by Mr Granstaff on 03 Sep 18 at 17:34
Ginn0rzUnfortunately it looks like you have to download all of the screenshots individually, there is no option to download the full album in a single file.

AbsolTheDarkOneThank you so much for this, it was way easier than the agility orbs!

Lyco499Anyone looking at this now, Google+ is getting killed off (and all content deleted) on April 2nd 2019 and all the sceenshots are hosted there. So defo grab them while you can.
Posted by Lyco499 on 06 Feb 19 at 21:10
Ginn0rzThanks for bringing this to my attention. I'll see what I can do.
Posted by Ginn0rz on 07 Feb 19 at 09:38
Mr GranstaffOh, craaaap… I might as well get in on this, lol.

ConcreteShark92Hey, does anyone have a complete map of the Hidden Orbs? I'm on 297/300 and every map I can find is either too difficult to read or only lists around 250 orbs

Pirate Llama224Does anyone know where Orb 16 is? I see it on the map but cannot get to it at all
