Navigating the Pickaxe Location

You’ll have to make your way down to the cave after finding the rope on the stony mountain. You must first collect the Rebreather, which allows you to dive underwater for extended periods, to find the Pickaxe location. To go to the Pickaxe location, you need to have this ability.

Entrance To Pickaxe Location

Once inside the cave, follow the path until you reach a cascade. Go with the water flow, but beware of the risk of falling at the end. Hop onto the right to find a path, but be cautious as it can be steep.


There are a few things to gather once you’re down, including an oxygen tank. Use your Rebreather to get through this portion of the cave underwater to continue. After you follow the trail, you will come to a fork in the road. Proceed to the left, since the right leads to a dead end.

You’ll discover the priceless ??? there. An artifact.
