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

Nomad is one of six challenges in The Long Dark.

Overview Edit

Survive for 3 days each in 15 specific locations across the game world.
In-game instructions
The Nomad challenge is a challenge that asks the player to spend 3 whole days in each location listed in their journal. The locations are not located in any one region but are scattered between the many different maps, spanning the world.

Journal Edit

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 a location for three days, a notification will appear at the top right of the screen saying that the location is complete and a green check mark will appear next to the location in the journal. When the last location is complete, the challenge immediately ends. Once the challenge ends, the player can not go back and look at the journal.

Other information Edit

  • 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 location for Forestry Lookout has moved and the Destroyed Lookout now stands in its previous position. To complete the task in the journal, the player must stay at the new Forestry Lookout location.
  • The Stone Church provides little protection from the elements and is by far the hardest location to survive.
