Borderlands 3 (BL3) has 223 Named Locations and this guide shows where to find them. You need all Named Locations for the following trophies and achievements:
- Master Of All You Survey – Discover all named locations.
- A Hundred Names For Sand – Discover all named locations on Pandora.
- City Slicker – Discover all named locations on Promethea.
- Swamped – Discover all named locations on Eden-6.
- Exoarchaeolo – Discover all named locations on Nekrotafeyo.
None of the named locations are missable! You can still discover all of them after the story in free-roam. You can go back to all relevant places during the endgame. However, you must collect them all in one playthrough. When you start True Vault Hunter mode (New Game+) the statistics can break and this can reset the locations you already found.
To keep track of your progress, open the map and hit the L3 / Left Stick. You can zoom to Orbit to view total progress (how many of 223 named locations you found), zoom on the planet (how many per planet you found) or zoom to a specific map (see how many you found in that area). You also need the locations from all Circles of Slaughter and Proving Ground Trials!
When you find something new it always says “Area Discovered” with the location name in the middle of the screen. All you have to do is step into every uniquely named area in the game. There is no need to uncover (turn blue) the whole map, you just need to stand in the specific spots to register them. By uncovering all of the maps you will find most locations automatically along the way, but some require very specific positioning as the locations can be tiny.
It’s best to keep the locations for last and do all side missions first. The reason being that certain areas are locked behind specific side missions. After having done every main- and side mission in the game you will be able to access all places. Until then some named areas are unreachable. If you don’t get the trophy for all named locations, double check that you got the Circles of Slaughter and Proving Grounds and check the tracker for each map again.
