The Long Dark | All Map Locations Explained

In this guide, you will find a list of Map locations in the game, The Long Dark. To be more specific, this has to do with the Survival Mode of the game. Upon completion of all these maps and their locations, you will unlock the Faithful Cartographer Achievement for the game. I will try to include the icons and the transitions you will make from one spot to the other while navigating the maps. The information you will see is from in-game, combined with the knowledge that the game developers shared themselves. Hence the wordings and images may be similar. I advise readers’ discretion while going through this guide. You will find a Table of Content below for ease of reference. Let’s check it out…
