Saints Row 2022 Badlands North is one of the richest territories when it comes to Discoveries and one of the unclaimed regions in the video game developed by Deep Silver Volition.
Saints Row Reboot Badlands North is found in the northwestern corner of Santo Ileso, and it features a total of 24 Discoveries you’ll have to complete.
There are no Stores and no Threats in this region of Saints Row 5, but to fill the yellow Discoveries bar on your in-game phone, you have to complete the following activities:
- 10 Pallet Pickups
- 7 Lost Wheels
- 2 Photo Hunts
- 2 Weather Stations
- 1 Hidden History
- 1 Dumpster Diving
- 1 Shooting Gallery
As such, assuming you need help with them, throughout the following Saints Row Badlands North Discoveries guide, I’ll tell you where to find every Discovery and how to get 100% completion in this deserted area.
Saints Row 5 Badlands North Discoveries Map
Like all other Discoveries guides, let’s start with a custom map showing the locations of the 24 side activities in the latest Saint Row game.
As you can see, these activities are scattered all around the region, so you’ll have to do a bit of driving to finish all of them.
Where To Find All Badlands North Drug Pallet Pickups
In Badlands North, you need to find and collect 10 Drug Pallets, and since they are the most accessible, we’ll start with them.
Discoveries 1-3 (Drug Pallets): By An Electricity Tower
The first batch of Badlands North Drug Pallets is found by an electricity tower outside a prison.
Upon reaching the location on the map above, look for a solitary house. The first Pallet is on the roof, while the last two are waiting in the open area southeast of the house.
Discoveries 4-6 (Drug Pallets): Near An Abandoned Town
The second batch of Saints Row Badlands North Drug Pallets is scattered near an abandoned town at the location I have marked for you.
Upon reaching the location on the map above, you’ll find the first Drug Pallet on the western side of the town, on a small cliff.
For the second one, look near a damaged car as you head up the hill nearby (first picture below).
The last Drug Pallet is behind the hill outside the town, in front of a wooden structure (second screenshot).
Discoveries 7-10 (Drug Pallets): Around Lake Alacran Hidden History Area
The final batch of Saints Row Drug Pallets in Badlands North is found southeast of the previous location.
The Pallets are scattered around the search area of Lake Alacran Hidden History. When you get to the location marked on my map, you must be aware that there are 4 Drug Pallets you need to retrieve.
The first one is next to a cactus near the road leading up the hill, while the second one is on top of the hill south of the cactus (first screenshot below).
For the next two, keep moving south towards the abandoned house. One Pallet is close to the yard, and the last one is on the roof of the abandoned house (second screenshot).
How To Get All Badlands North Lost Wheels
Great, now that you collected all Drug Pallets, let’s go over every Badlands North Lost Wheel.
Discovery 11 (Lost Wheel): By A Trailer
The first Badlands North Lost Wheel is relatively easy to spot because it sits by a trailer in a camping area.
Head to the 11th location on the map above and look for it in front of the said trailer. This Lost Wheel unlocks the Shark-Fin Winglets Rocket Car Part.
Discovery 12 (Lost Wheel): On Top Of A Hill
The next Lost Wheel is close to the previous one, as you can see on the Badlands North map above.
From the previous location, drive northeast, and you’ll see it on top of a hill overseeing the city.
Open the Lost Wheel to get the Rocket Engine (Left) Car Part.
Discovery 13 (Lost Wheel): By A Bridge
From the previous location, move further northwest, and by a large concrete bridge, you’ll see the next Badlands North Lost Wheel Discovery.
It is easy to spot due to its size, and when you interact with it, you’ll unlock the Rocket Engine (Right) Car Part.
Discovery 14 (Lost Wheel): By A Mountain Path
The next Lost Wheel is also further northwest from the previous Discovery.
Use the map above to mark its location, and when you get close, you should be able to spot it on a small mountain.
It’s sitting by the dirt path up the said mountain, and it unlocks the Aerospace Grade Aluminium Body Rocket Car Part.
Discovery 15 (Lost Wheel): By The Train Tracks
Several meters northeast of the previous Lost Wheel, you can find another one. Look for it by the train tracks, on top of another small hill.
This Lost Wheel unlocks the Ultra Heat Resistant Tires.
Discovery 16 (Lost Wheel): In A Camping Area
For the next Lost Wheel and the 16th Badlands North Discovery on the map above, you’ll have to do a bit of swimming because this one is found on an island.
Swim towards the location we have marked, and you’ll see it between some tents on the island’s northern side. It unlocks the 1500 Horsepower Big Block Engine.
Discovery 17 (Lost Wheel): On An Island
Last but not least, north of the previous Discovery and on another island, you can find the last Lost Wheel in Badlands North.
Again, you’ll have to swim, fly or use a jetski to get to the location marked above. The Lost Wheel is on top of a small hill, and it unlocks the Roll Of Bandages Car Part.
How To Complete The Badlands North Photo Hunts
Great job! Now that all Lost Wheels have been collected, it’s time to deal with the two Photo Hunts in Badlands North.
Discovery 18 (Photo Hunt): Badlands Watering Hole
The first Saints Row Badlands North Photo Hunt requires you to photograph a watering hole.
So, head to the location I have marked for you above, and you’ll find a small bar near the mountain’s wall.
You can see it in the following screenshot, and all you need to do is take a photo using your phone’s camera.
Discovery 19 (Photo Hunt): House Phoenix Dragon
For the second Photo Hunt in Badlands North, head west from the previous location.
This Photo Hunt requires you to photograph the House Phoenix Dragon. Upon reaching the location marked on the map above, you’ll find an abandoned mining facility that was turned into a park.
The House Phoenix Dragon is an attraction made of wood, as you can see below, and you can find it in the lower area of the facility.
Where To Find The Reboot Badlands North Weather Stations
The next type of Discoveries you’ll want to focus on while exploring Badlands North is represented by the Weather Stations.
Discovery 20 (Weather Station): On A Hill
The first Weather Station is found on the northern side of the region, and as you may remember, you don’t need to interact with it to make it count as discovered.
So, check your map to see if it appears on it, and if it doesn’t, head to the 20th location marked on the map above. You’ll find it by a road as you climb a hill.
Discovery 21 (Weather Station): At A Ranch
The second Saints Row 2022 Badlands North Weather Station is also very accessible, but it’s found on the southern side of the region.
Specifically, it’s in front of a ranch at the location marked above.
Get close to it to count as found.
Badlands North Dumpster Diving Location
Upon finding the second Weather Station, focus on the Dumpster Diving marked above (22th Discovery).
The Golden Dumpster is only several steps away from the Weather Station. Descend the hill and move south to spot a large trailer on which you can read Keep Out.
The Dumpster is behind the trailer, and when you investigate it, you’ll find some golden truck parts.
How To Complete The Badlands North Hidden History
The next Saints Row Reboot Badlands North Discovery we’ll cover is the Hidden History found in the center of the region at the 23rd location marked on the map above.
This Hidden History allows you to learn more about Lake Alacran but to do this, you’ll need to find the five signs and interact with them.
Start with the first one that is found close to the road on the northwestern side of the search area, then go around the former lake towards the small dock (right-side arrow in the image below).
Now, keep moving south to find the next sign behind some rocks, then interact with the fourth sign (welcome sign) by the large dock.
The last sign sits outside the small house by the dock. Look for it near the wall. After you find all 5 signs, head back to the large welcome sign and interact with it again to complete the Lake Alacran Hidden History.
How To Complete The Reboot Badlands North Shooting Gallery
The last of the 24 Saints Row Badlands North Discoveries is the Old West Shooting Gallery which requires you to find and shoot 15 hidden targets within a search area.
Approach the search area from the southeast and follow the order below to find the 15 targets:
- One target is on a balcony on the right side of the road
- Another target is across the road on top of some stairs
- The third is on top of a cart
- The fourth target is between the buildings as you move down the main path
- On the roof of the small house
- Between some barrels under the fifth target
- At the entrance of the house under the sixth target
- In a cart on the right side of the house with the previous three targets
- On the left side of the main street in a well by the mill
- On the left side of the previous target, behind some barrels
- Across the street from the previous targets on the porch of a house
- At the entrance to the search area, in the middle of the road
- On the right side of the main road, behind a rusted car
- In a small yard on the right side of the main road (the target shows a wolf)
- Above the previous target but on top of the mill (the target shows a pheasant)
