The Finals – Save File and Config File Location

THe finals save and config file location

To make certain changes to the game files, and the settings for The Finals, you need to know the location for these files on your system.

for Windows Systems, this is the location for the Save and Config files:

  • Save File Location – Local Disk (C:)\Users\<your username>\appdata\Local\Discovery\Saved\SaveGames
  • Config File Location – Local Disk (C:)\Users\<your username>\appdata\Local\Discovery\Saved\Config\WindowsClient

For Linux (Steam Play)

  • <Steam-folder>/steamapps/compatdata/2073850/pfx/

Take note that both the Save File and the Config Files are located in the Steam Installation folder, so you do not have to find them separately in different folders.

How To Access The Files:

You need to open the respective system (Windows or Linux) and paste the following default path in the address bar:

  • Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Discovery\Saved\Config\WindowsClient
  • Linux: <Steam-folder>/steamapps/compatdata/2073850/pfx/

Now simply hit enter the respective folder should open up for you. You can also manually navigate to the folder path mentioned in the starting of the guide.

How To Access AppData Folder

You may have noticed that there is a folder called %LOCALAPPDATA%. In most Systems, this folder remains hidden, so you need the knowledge on how to unhide, or access this path in the first place:

Hidden Folders: The AppData folder on Windows is hidden by default. To view it, follow these steps:

  2. Click the “View” tab.
