Hard-to-Find Mining Outcrops in the Flooded Forest

Mining Outcrop No. 4 Near the Subcamp

The mining outcrop in area no. 4 in the farming route is near the subcamp, in the middle of the rock wall.

Mining Outcrop No. 5 Is Inside a Small Cave on the Rock Wall

One of the mining outcrops in area no. 5 in the farming route is quite tricky to spot, since it's high up. But you just have to use Wirebugs and wallrun up there.

Mining Outcrop at the Bottom Right Side of the Map

There's also a couple of mining outcrops in the bottom right side of the map (at the pyramid), but it's not so good in terms of efficiency and can be ignored.

However, if you don't mind taking the extra effort of going there, why not?

      Is April 20 confirmed?? Where’d u get the date

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
