Main Game Trophies/Achievements

World Traveler

The World Traveler trophy/achievement requires you to find all of the named locations in the game, and includes the Arctic Explorer, Urban Explorer, Highlands Explorer, and Blight Explorer trophies/achievements. This entire thing entails that you explore every nook and cranny in all of the locations in the non-DLC areas of the game, as well as making sure that there are no blacked out areas on your maps.

You will likely get a lot of locations while making your way through the main story and by doing all of the side missions, but there are a few that won’t be gotten by doing this. Remember that all of your discovered locations will carry over through subsequent playthroughs (TVHM and UVHM), but you’ll still need to activate the fast travel stations on those playthroughs.
