Challenge Nomad.png

The world has changed. The only way to survive is to keep moving.
In-game description

Nomad is one of seven challenges in The Long Dark.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Survive for 3 days each in 15 specific locations across the game world.
In-game instructions

The Nomad challenge is one of seven challenges in the Long Dark. It requires the player to spend three entire days in each location listed in their journal. The locations are not located in any one region, but are scattered between the many different regions, spanning the world. The game difficulty is Voyageur.

Journal[edit | edit source]

The journal automatically tracks how long the player has been at each location in increments of a tenth of a day. Once the player has been at any location for three days, a notification will appear at the top right of the screen stating that the location is complete, and a green checkmark will appear next to the location in the journal. When the final location is complete, the challenge immediately ends, and the player cannot go back and look at the journal.

Other information[edit | edit source]

  • The locations can be visited in any order.
  • It is important to plan ahead so that the player does not have to double back to regions to stay at locations he or she missed.
  • The Stone Church provides very little protection from the elements and is by far the hardest location to survive.
