Borderlands 3 (BL3) has 27 Named Locations in Nekrotafeyo. This guide shows all of them for each zone on Planet: Nekrotafeyo. This unlocks Exoarchaeolo—You Get the Gist trophy or achievement.
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.
To keep track of your progress, open the map and hit the L3 / Left Stick. You can check this map by map or if you zoom out to the planet map select you can see the total progress on that planet.
Simply step into every named location, you just need to stand in the right spot. When you find something new it always says “Area Discovered” with the location name in the middle of the screen. There is no need to uncover (turn blue) the whole map, you just need to stand in the specific spots to register them.
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.
The guide below lists the Zones in the same order as Nekrtafeyo’s fast travel select. If you haven’t unlocked a zone yet you must advance further in the story.
- Desolation’s Edge: 9
- Tazendeer Ruins: 8
- The Pyre of Stars: 10
The Purple Marker in the images shows the exact spot.
