There are a total of two types of Crew Challenges on the Skittermaw Basin map. The two types of Crew Challenges on this starting map are: Gaige’s Gifts and Hammerlock’s Occult Hunt. To find these collectibles I’ve marked the map above. Use it to find the general areas of each Crew Challenge for the Skittermaw Basin. Continue reading below to learn more about each location.

Gaige’s Gifts: Umbergist Village

Note: Rescue Gaige and reach The Lodge before going after this Crew Challenges as it will not appear before then.

The first Crew Challenge location I will highlight is for the collectible called Gaige’s Gifts. This collectible can be found in the location called Umbergist Village. In this village you will need to head to the upper most northern portion. Here you can walk out on the cliff face. Above you there will be a lumber piece you need to reach. To get here walk along the cliff face until you see a crate with a board on it. Use this to reach the upper portion of the cliff where the present is.

Hammerlock’s Occult Hunt: Yeti

The second Crew Challenge location is for the Hammerlock’s Occult Hunt. This hunt is similar to the previous Crew Challenges where we needed to find legendary animals. The target this time is a legendary Yeti. You will find this Yeti in the area called Nethes Mines. The mines are opened after you complete The Case of Wainwright Jakobs story mission. Go there and defeat the target to finish this Crew Challenge.

These two Crew Challenges are the only challenges in this area. After you’ve completed this area you will want to move onto the area called Cursehaven.
