Far Cry New Dawn Photo Locations Guide: Completing Your Trip Down Memory Lane

Here are all nine photo locations to complete the A Thousand Words side mission in Far Cry New Dawn Ubisoft/Player.One

Far Cry New Dawn is here, and it’s filled with all sorts of collectibles and secrets. One of the most memorable is the A Thousand Words side quest, which gives Far Cry 5 players a trip down memory lane. Players must go to specific locations and look at old pictures to see how time and nuclear explosions have changed each area.

To start the A Thousand Words side quest, go to the second floor of the main house in Prosperity. You’ll find photographs to pick up. This automatically starts the mission, but doesn’t provide the locations for each Photograph. The Photo Locations map is available for purchase, but this guide will save you the precious Ethanol.

Far Cry New Dawn Photo Locations Guide

All photo locations have a stool on a little platform, as seen in this picture Photo: Ubisoft/Player.One

At each location, there is a little platform and a stool like in the above picture. Once at each platform, hold up on the D-pad to raise the related photograph in the air. Walk around until you line up the photograph with the world behind it. The game will help snap the photo into the right spot. You’ll know you did it right when the frame glows gold.
