To find the required Patriot, go to the parking lot at the Staunton View picnic area. Here, you’ll have to find twenty checkpoints. For each one picked up, you will get an additional fifteen seconds to find the next one. You’ll start with unlimited time to get the first one.

  • Go left to one checkpoint.
  • The next checkpoint is on a small hill. Try to get it from the left.
  • Behind that one is the next checkpoint.
  • Go right to see two more; go left and forward to the next checkpoint.
  • Back up and go right and forward to the next checkpoint.
  • At the top of the hill, go right to the next checkpoint.
  • Back up, turn around, and go forward to the next checkpoint.
  • Go right to the street and follow to the next checkpoint.
  • Go along the street and go between the final tree and the tunnel and uphill to the next checkpoint.
  • Go on over to the next three checkpoints.
  • After the last one there, go left and downhill; brake slightly to more easily reach the next checkpoint.
  • Go right and make the next one be to your left, then behind you. Go downhill backwards to hopefully reach it.
  • Once you do, accelerate and go straight to the next checkpoint.
  • Go left and back down to the next checkpoint.
  • Go right and straight up the hill to the next checkpoint.
  • Go downhill to the next checkpoint.Use BOTH brakes to maintain control.
  • Go right to the next checkpoint.
  • The final one is atop the western entrance of the Upstate Tunnel, on the right side and out of view. Look at the left see of the tunnel top and line up with it. Go on down to get the final checkpoint.
