New World Settler

This trophy/achievement requires you to set up five optional camps in viable campsites across the various maps available to you. To set up a camp, you first must discover a suitable campsite (these tend to be in small, isolated areas, often forcing you to crawl to them - likely to keep the large monsters out), and once discovered you’ll need to return to Astera, talk to the folks at the Resource Center, a fulfill a Critical Bounty… which in turn usually requires you to have a small amount of Research Points and specific monster parts. The locations of these camps can be found below.

Ancient Forest - Northwest Camp

This starts the delivery request Setting Up Camp: Ancient Forest I, which requires you to deliver 50 Research Points, Iron Ore x2 and an Ancient Bone.

Climb the cliff to reach AREA 15 and follow a waterfall uphill to the north, then turn left (west) and follow a corkscrew path up to the top, then head out a branch-shrouded passage to the northeast to reach AREA 17. You’re now up in the boughs of the Ancient Forest. Follow a path to the south until it forks, then turn east and finally north to reach the platform upon which this camp can be built.
