Hey,

The Idea with Daily and Weekly Contracts is great...granted.
But how the heck are you going to find what is asked for?

No Waypoints (like in Quests), and only insufficient hints toward the Quest Objectives...

A simple Example:

So, when i read this the Delta Bunker North or West comes to mind...located here:

I start killing everything i see, not a single Update on the Contract...
I search the entire area, still nothing.

This is really frustating...

Do the Coop mission Liberate the Lost. That's where I got some progress. Though through the entire thing I only got 9.

Was gonna say from the sounds of that contract its not the outside of the bunker BUT Inside the bunker so co-op mission?

What would be great is if they had 2 daily, and possibly also 2 weekly contracts for each group instead of just 1. Have 1 of each be something in the open world, and have another category for doing stuff within Co-ops.

Yeah they're poorly implemented. It's basically "kill this many of this type in this location" but doesn't actually show you where and there's no HUD tracking like everything else.

Gave up on doing them seeing that half of them reset when you log out

Kind of wish you could mark one or a couple of them as active and it would give you a vague idea or somethign on the map. It wouldn't have to tell you exactly where to go, but some idea more than the entire region would be nice. It would also be kind of nice if the ones that required you to play co-op maps would be marked in some way.

Yup, let's hope that area names will be listed on the actual map (perhaps once you zoom in one step from maximum) when the patch hits. If I had realized/known how this was set up, I'd have'd drawn and written a paper version...

Xenocow, I gotta ask. WHERE did you get that screenshot from? I can find NO information in -game regarding Contracts...

I found them today. If you press Esc to get the screen up, then press Space to get the Ego circle up. Click 'Goals' on that, and there are two options at the top, the second one is 'contracts' and that is what you are looking for. :)

Thank you so much to the people who have posted screenshots of where the contracts are located, I have had no luck finding them myself.

Just hit "J" and then right from the big "GOALS" on top are two tabs... Pursuits + Contracts

yeah, this one is the co op. BUT..ive done it twice and both times got kicked to the menu...and also, the first time I did it I only got 7 things, the 2nd time, 8. So I gotta do a third to the rest. Doesn't seem like its working right

I got one for raiders on docks, and the only place I could remember seeing raiders on docks was San Quentin. I went and killed a bunch, but none registered, so that must be the wrong place. You definitely need some hud help or at the very least, some location names on the map.

One more thing about contracts. If Im far away from San Francisco (story line), why I have contracts, that I can complete only there? Contracts should be available for everyone, regardless of the progress in the game

The contracts missions have been extremely poorly implemented (along with the map in general).

This area needs some real work by the devs...

Xenocow, thank you! Now if I can just figure out how to get them to reset once I have done one. Did two last night, goldrushers and skitterlings in Marin, but last I looked they both said Completed and had not reset. The time remaining reset to 24 hours, briefly, then changed back to 0.

BTW, if you go to the mine entrance for A Bullet for a Badman, skitterlings and goldrushers pop there every few minutes and you can get both Contracts done in an hour or less.

Try Pirate's Cove?
