|“||The world has changed. The only way to survive is to keep moving.
|“||Survive for 3 days each in 15 specific locations across the game world.
The Nomad challenge is one of eight 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.
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(timer is still bugged causing it to take 6 days, as of March 2021, patch notes says it's fixed as of April 29 2021), 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.
- 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 they missed.
- The Stone Church provides very little protection from the elements and is by far the hardest location to survive.
- There are more than one barn, so be wary of which you sleep in.
