Introduction

Hey, welcome to my guide! This guide will cover every single secret in the game. Items that I feel are easy to find (such as modules marked on your map or gearbits that you'll run into naturally) won't be covered. I decided to write the guide using mostly pictures, as that is how the story of the game is presented, and I think most of the secrets are fairly self explanatory (I'm also not very good with words).

Any feedback is greatly appreciated, as well as the locations of anything I've missed.

Enjoy!

Note: I didn't get the modules marked on my map until I got half of these so there's gonna be more than 4 (plus even the ones on your map are pretty well hidden).

April 7th Patch Gearbits
If you made your save after April 7th, this section probably won't apply to you. These 9 gearbits are enemy drops that were added in a patch to help ease players into the game. I added this section is so people who started before the April 7th patch don't have to go through the whole game to find them.

SchoolDozer Samreshay-

Yeah you can return to completed locations, you don't need to find everything on your first time through each area.

Can I return to completed locations or I must find all things in order?

Has this been updated to include all the missing ones?

Noticed your Sothern Area Modules is missing 5 of the 8 pieces.

800 cheers for InfiniteSlick! That finder tool was lifesaving for the ONE bit I was missing. Awesome guide, badass tool. Thanks guys.

Great thanks for guide!

Hey for anyone still stuck missing some gearbits, I made a tool that analyzes your save file and determines which gearbits you're missing. For each missing gearbit, it will then link you to a video guide showing you how to get it.

Hi, your guide is really helpful. I only wonder what Gearbit #25 of the Eastern Area is supposed to be.
