The list below shows each of the Prepper Stash map locations together with a quick guide to solving the stash puzzle, such as locating the key, opening locked doors or the sequence of handles and levers which must be pulled.
ALL Prepper Stash Locations
Sunken Funds - Dutch's Region Prepper Stash
Located right in the centre of the world map, in Dutch's region. This Prepper Stash is on the small island, to the east of Widow's Creek. Walk up to the wooden building (shown in image above) with the yellow note pinned to the wall, read it and the Prepper Stash quest is activated.
The note explains that you need juice to run the pump to drain the water. Head to the waters edge where the red boat house is with the flag flying above. Jump into the water and swim underneath the boathouse, Use the blue rope to climb out of the water and pull the lever to activate the power. Take the key from the wall and enter through the locked door.
Now go back to the wooden hut where the note was, look to the left and interact with the pipe to turn the wheel. Water should gush out the side allowing you to open the large hatch on the floor nearby. Go down the stairs into the bunker, smash through the wooden obstruction and collect the loot inside.
Shipwreck - Faith's Region Prepper Stash
Located in Faiths Region, this Prepper Stash is on the small island in the middle of Silver Lake. Look for the wooden log hut with the bulls head and the yellow warning sign reading "Caution Do Not Enter". Read the note on the crates outside the front entrance to activate the stash quest.
Head to the waters edge where the sunken building is, jump into the water to the right of the building and follow the yellow marker through into the submerged side of the building. Navigate through the narrow passageway of beams, turn right at the end of the passageway and continue. There's another right turn underwater before you see the stairs leading out of the water.
Follow the route straight, towards the ladder. Climb up and follow the stairs to the left. Activate the yellow lever in front. Hop through the window and back outside, following the yellow marker. Head into the entrance and swim through the caves, just keep going until you eventually reach the door leading into the bunker. There are several magazines here and some money.
The Holdouts - Jacob's Region Prepper Stash
Located in Jacob's region, this stash is south of the FANG Centre and very close to the Elliots Residence. Look for the house with the writing "fight the cult" written on the front wall (see image above). Interact with the note on the crates outside the front entrance to activate the treasure hunt.
Go to the back of the house and look for the wooden hut with bullet holes in the wall, the large American flag on the side and the blue door. Shoot the padlock on the floor to allow access to the bunker hatch. Don't got down just yet, we need the keycard first.
Leave the hut and walk towards the house. Jump onto the wooden beam by the flower pot, and then jump again up to the balcony of the first floor (you should be able to grab the edge of the balcony, between the barbed wire). Go through the window, out the toilet window, onto the roof and then into the small room with the fan. Follow the stairs down and locate the kitchin - this is where the keycard is.
Watch out for enemies and return to the bunker door to claim the loot. There are lots of perk magazines and money here.
Salvage Rites - Jacob's Region Prepper Stash
Jacob's Region this time, the Salvage Rites stash is on the small island east of Clagett Bay and north east of Widow's Creek. Look for the tent and read the note to activate the hunt. Swim out a considerable distance to the yellow marker to the north east. Look for the floating buoy and swim down to the lake bed where you'll find Fred Tanner's key by the body.
Return to the surface and swim back to the tent area. Open the long crate using the key and collect the money and perk magazine loot.
Mayday - Jacob's Region Prepper Stash
Another stash in Jacob's Region, this one is in the far north western edge of the world map. Look for the wooden rope bridge near the waterfall. Interact with the note beside the bridge. The hunt is now activated, look up and the yellow marker is on the cliff edge.
Cross the bridge and follow the path round the side of the cliff and up the hillside. At the top there's a series of grapple points on the cliff edge. Use the grapple to winch yourself and then follow the path onwards. Repeat this gappling process several times as you work yourself higher, eventually arriving at a broken bridge. Run and jump across.
Keep following the path onwards, grappling when appropriate until eventually reaching the top of the cliff and the crashed plane. Look for the key in one of the smashed crates on the floor and open the loot crate to collect the money and perks.
Cliffhanger - Jacob's Region Prepper Stash
Located on the eastern edge of Jacob’s region, this Prepper Stash is near to Ozhigwan Falls. Look for the brown sign post beside the road for Ozhigwan Falls. To the right of the signpost there’s a grapple point, leading down to the stash location. Before you venture all the way down the grapple point, take the route slightly to the left, under the bridge where the dead body is. There’s a key (Ted and Ian’s Key) here that you should pick up first.
Now that you have the key, jump off the cliffside and parashoot all the way to the bottom, where the truck is. Quickly read the yellow note to start the stash hunt then open the stash box on the back of the truck. Job done!
Hangar Pains - Jacob's Region Prepper Stash
Located at the Lansdowne Airstrip in Jacob’s Region, this Prepper Stash is very easy to complete and rewards you with the “Pack Hunter” airplane unlock and the usual stash loot. Look for the stash note outside of the hanger, on top of a crate. Read it to start the hunt. The key to completing this stash is to get on the roof of the hanger.
The easiest way to do this is to deploy a helicopter from the Helicopter Shop to the south east of the hanger. Alternatively you can use the Air Drop function (a Perk) which lets you drop from the sky at a chosen fast travel point, then use the parachute or wingsuit to glide onto the roof.
Land on the roof and gain entry through the open hatch. Drop down into the room and press the button on the wall to complete the treasure hunt.
Gone Squatchin - Jacob's Region Prepper Stash
Located in the south western corner of Jacob’s Region, this stash is in Dansky Cabin. Look for the cabin (shown in the image above) and read the note outside the front door. Now follow the pathway leading to the right, up the hillside as you move closer towards the yellow marker.
There’s a series of endless grapple points, jumps, leaps etc. which will take a few minutes to complete as you finally reach the body. Grab the Dansky Key Card beside the body and to save time, jump and wingsuit back to the log cabin to grab the loot inside.
Unwelcome Guest - Jacob's Region Prepper Stash
A quick and easy stash, this one is located in the south western corner of Jacob’s Region. The stash is inside Frank’s Cabin (see image above) which is high up the cliffside, away from the road edge. Read the note on the wall outside the front door to start the quest.
Go round the back of the cabin and follow the path onwards until eventually reaching a very dark cave. Watch out for the bear! Take action and then pick up the key on the floor. Return to the cabin, unlock the door and collect the loot inside.
Overwatch - Faith's Region Prepper Stash
Warning this is one of the longest stash hunts.
Located on the eastern side of Faith’s Region of the world map, this stash is to the east of Peaches Taxidermy at the Taft Lookout Tower up on the hillside. Read the note inside the tower to being the hunt.
Now follow the yellow marker up the hillside of Raptor Peak and use the various grapple points, it’s a long way! There’s no key required for this stash but just watch out for the birds.
Pooper Scooper - Faith's Region Prepper Stash
Another stash in Faiths Region, this one is to the north west by the Silver Lake Summer Camp. Read the note by the bulletin board and start the hunt.
Climb up the wooden scaffolding to the first floor and break through the wooden window to the camp building. Scout the house looking for dog poop, yes unfortunately you heard that right. Check each of these until you find the key.
Go back outside to the nearby building (2) and open the door using the new keycard and collect the loot inside.
Animal Control - Faith's Region Prepper Stash
Just north of Peaches Taxidermy lies this Prepper Stash, near to the Howling Cave. Read the note on the crate outside the cave to begin.
Go into the cave and follow the grapple hook route. Jump down into the pool of water and swim to the next grapple point. Follow the route onwards until you reach the guards- finish these guys off with your favourite weapon. Work your way to the back of the room with the animal cages and grapple up higher. The loot is right beside the helicopter and no key is required.
Angel's Grave - Faith's Region Prepper Stash
Located on the eastern side of Faith’s Region this stash is south east of the Rock Bass Lake, by the Horned Serpent Cave. The note is directly outside the cave entrance.
Grapple your way up and over the cliff edge. Follow the yellow marker and finish off the two men throwing a body down into the cave. Once taken care of, grapple down into the darker cave and follow the path, eventually coming to a lamp and a sign on the floor that reads: “biohazard keep off”.
Carefully jump across the bubbling water (which will kill you) and follow the path onwards, crouching through the narrow passages and eventually reaching another grapple point. The stash isn’t much further now. Hop over the rocks and onto the large rock in the middle of the pool of water, then use the grapple point up above to swing across.
Take the zipline across the water and run up the several flights of stairs. There’s one more guard and his dog here but it’s not too much trouble. The stash is unlocked, on top of a table.
Getaway - Faith's Region Prepper Stash
To the south east of Faith’s Region lies the McCallough’s Garage and this particular stash. The note is inside the garage, beside the cash register.
Follow the yellow marker to the adjacent room of the building and interact with the button on the wall. The garage door will open and the red car rolls out of your way. Hop over the barrier where the car was and across to the opposite room of the building. Duck under the boxes and continue through to the toilet - this is where the key is located.
Now return to the the room where you read the note and open the stash door to claim the loot.
Side Effects - Faith's Region Prepper Stash
The Side Effects stash is in the southern half of Faith’s Region, to the south east of Hope County Jail at Bright Warden Radon Spa. Read the note outside of the mine entrance to begin this hunt.
Enter the mine and follow the pathway onwards as you ignore the hallucinations and break through the manu wooden barriers. After a few minutes you’ll reach the end of the tunnel and a machine, interact with the button on the left hand side to dim the lights. Now head onwards.
A couple of loonies will appear soon, scoot past these guys, keeping up the pace as you push forward. A few more loonies will appear and these guys need dealing with. Eventually you’ll reach a grapple point across a hole in the floor and the stash door isn’t too far from here.
