Club Side-Missions

Club Side-Missions

The Frontiersmen

Frontiersmen Side-Missions

There are six Frontiersmen Club side-missions that ask you to travel to some of the more isolated places on some of the maps to track down some unusual sightings ranging from UFOs to sasquatches. These side-missions can be picked up from several locations in the Frontier and Boston and are indicated on the map as a symbol with a white triangle that has a black tip.

You can undertake each of these side-quests by approaching either the campfires in the Frontier or by chatting with the indicated contacts in specific taverns in Boston.

Mission 1: The Boy who Cried Wolf

After picking up the quest, look at the map. You’ll find the quest marker just to the East of the river in the centre of the Diamond Basin hunting area.

When you reach the marker you will find a Frontiersmen's camp. Explore the camp site for clues. Kill the wolf that attacks you to complete the mission. Return to the Frontiersmen's campfire or tavern to pick up the next quest.

Mission 2: Finding the Sasquatch

After picking up the quest, look at the map. You’ll find the quest marker in the very north-western corner of the Frontier map in the Black creek hunting area.

When you arrive at the marker, you'll be in an area with a waterfall. Interact with the clues in the search area to narrow it down. When you find the cave entrance head inside for a scene to complete the mission.    Return to the Frontiersmen's campfire or tavern to pick up the next quest.

Mission 3: The Haunted Lighthouse

After picking up the quest, look at the map. You’ll find the quest marker on the on the eastern side of the Great Piece Hills hunting region.

When you arrive at the destination, examine the clues in the nearby area and by that, I mean climb up the lighthouse and examine the scarecrow on the top deck to complete the mission.    Return to the Frontiersmen's campfire or tavern to pick up the next quest.

Mission 4: The Headless Horseman

After picking up the quest, look at the map. You’ll find the quest marker just inside the eastern boundary of the Troy’s Wood hunting area.

When you arrive at the destination, examine the clues in the nearby area and after examining enough of them, a scene will play and when it ends you will have completed the mission.    Return to the Frontiersmen's campfire or tavern to pick up the next quest.

Mission 5: Unidentified flying object

You’ll find this side-mission in Boston. You’ll find the quest marker for this in the north-western corner of southern Boston near the water.

When you arrive at the destination, examine the clues in the nearby area and then climb the tree nearby and examine the object here to complete the mission.

Mission 6: Monster of the Sea

After picking up this side-mission from one of the Frontiersmen from a tavern in Boston, we need to head up to northern Boston and eavesdrop on the highlighted conversations on the map.

Afterwards, chat with the old woman by the grave and then head over to the green highlighted search area to the west of the map. Examine the diving gear here to complete the mission.    With all six of these missions complete, we have finished off all of the Frontiersmen's side-missions, all that is left to do is to complete the Frontiersmen's challenges.

Frontiersmen Challenges

After picking up the initial Frontiersmen side-mission 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' you will be able to undertake these challenges. Note that they are retrospective as well, so if you have completed some of them prior to joining the club, you will find that once you do join, they have already been completed.

The challeneges can be viewed and their progress tracked from the Logbook in the map menu. For convenience, I have listed them all below.
