FANDOM


All known Lore entries for the "Wasteland Historian" Steam achievement. As of this writing, there are 51+ lore items in game. The achievement requires that you find at least 45.

Ongoing Steam achievement counters are per playthrough or game run. In other words, lore items read in one playthrough will not carry over to other playthroughs, so you must be able to find at least 45 lore items in one party's playthrough. This means you will need to find all lore items in Arizona before traveling to Los Angeles, or this achievement will not be attainable for that playthrough.

Before leaving Arizona, the party should have "34" entries (i.e. 34/45) read before traveling to Los Angeles. It is possible to have a couple of more, but that will depend on what decisions you've made during the course of your playthrough.

Ag Center and Highpool contain 2 lore items each that are located deep within their respective areas. However, you will only be able to save one of the facilities in a playthrough. This will cause the other 2 lore items in the other facility to be inaccessible. You will not need the lore items that you cannot access in the other area, but need to ensure that you walk away with at least 2 of the 4 when you finish. The "History of the AgCenter" series will be available whether you save Ag Center or Highpool (for a grand total of 6 lore items).
