    me and my brother named all the locations and got all explorer trophies but we haven’t unlocked the world traveler trophy .-.
    it sucks!!!! any advise??????

  • LunarSinner

    WAHHHH! Okay so, I have those trophies already, but not the world traveler or whatever… I took cbombs advice, turns out I already found Ebonfloe, not sure when I did, must have been when I went on one of my exploring kicks…… Crap…. Any other advice guys?

  • connor

    i have all the explorer achievements that you listed.. thought i was going to get world traveler after.. but i guess im missing some hidden locations please give any information you have about this. thanks

    gamertag cRaFtY xD

    • HitMeUcantHrtMe

      I have the same problem.. have arctic, blight, urban and highlands achievements but don’t have world traveler yet !

      My map’s look complete.. have scanned over them 20 times now.

      • cbomb

        you guys are missing a place i had the same problem you have to head to southern shelf bay follow the wall to the right all the way around at some point youll come up to a light tower head left of it this will run you into a wrecked ship take a left at this point and follow it you will have to jump over a piece of ice cliff when you land on the other side just keep walking a few steps and you will discover a place called ebonfloe

        • Jumbie

          you wouldn’t get arctic explorer if you didn’t discover that place.. douche

          • Rawr

            Actually, cbomb is correct. The Southern Shelf Bay is not part of the Artic Explorer trophy. You would know that if you actually looked under the section for the trophy. I would know, because that is the area I had missed for the world traveler trophy, which I just got now. I got the Artic Explorer a long time ago.

            Before you go calling someone a douche for trying to help, double check your facts and not sound like a complete asshat yourself. Thanks.

            He is probably one of those ass-hats in sanctuary that killed Handsome Jack. Stupid ass-hat.

          Thanks man, it was missing this exact location!!!
