hey... is there a better way to find all of the items in an area? the last item always takes me like 30 min to find it drives me crazy.

I like to get the 100% so fast travel is easier

If you look on your radar, up at the top left on the outside of it will be a little signal indicator showing how close you are to an object, follow it for a general area, then when you get close enough (100% signal) the item should appear on your screen in one of those small bubble-like directional indicators.

...you are ♥♥♥♥ing kidding me. I'd even noticed that little thing, wondered what it was, and then promptly forgot to play around and figure it out. You, sir, are a king among men, and you've no doubt saved me countless hours flying frantically back and forth via parachute over bases, looking for the white arrow while getting shot repeatedly.

In summary: Thanks!

Ditto. I thought it was to defuse the military squad that was arresting citizens on the outskirts, but that wasn't it.

Also look for radio towers and generators to blow up - these got me for a while.

There's also one rare device that's a transformer, but it's actually up on the pole, off the ground. That one gets me every time.

When in doubt shoot and grenade everything. Sometimes it is a building or prop that needs to be destroyed. Other times it is a hidden pick up. Sometimes they will place the objects in very sneaky areas. Under bridges, hidden in some trees, etc. When truly in doubt do a mental grid of the area. Search square by square. It works but can be tedious.

Good luck. 7 hours in with only 4% complete atm. It'll be 2012 at this rate to get 100% lol.

Not bugged.. 30% completed (140ish settlements 100%) Aye, transformers on poles are hard to spot.

Sometimes, I'm finding there will be 2 white pointer arrows at the bottom of the screen that stay there when no items are around, it's definitely a bug.
