Route 10: Bridges & Walkways

Bridges and Walkways
spacer2
There are many Bridges and Walkways to find. Let’s run past all those I found so far. Starting in Archipelago. This is the long bridge from Norra Saltholmen to Södra Saltholmen.


spacer2
This Bridge leads to Salthamn.


spacer2
This old Stone bridge leads to Måsskär Resistance base.


spacer2
Walkways are not really bridges, but they make crossing the swampy path much easier. You can find this long walkway North of Seggesta farm.


spacer2
A small and simple, but effective, wooden Bridge at Hastvik.


spacer2
This wooden passage leads from Saltholmsbro to the main Archipelago island.


spacer2
Next I checked out the Forest Region. This broken bridge near Sundgård leads to a big unknown island at the East.


spacer2
This cute little wooden bridge near Kyrkparken crosses a narrow stream. With my boosted jumping boots and pants I could jump across the water if I wanted.


spacer2
A small wooden bridge with a balustrade near Påskallaholm. Very nice view.


spacer2
This wooden pier bridge will get you to Littorp with dry feet.


spacer2
I’m at the bridge near Lillå Settlement leading to the Farmland Region. Close to the river all I hear is the wind and the birds.


spacer2
Farmland Region is next on my list. This is the one near Stralsund which is totally destroyed.


spacer2
Broken wooden Pier Bridge east of the Skinnarbol Crater crossing the Överbyan river. Although broken it is still crossable. In the background, one of Don Don Quixote’s Giants is on Fire.


spacer2
Bridge over Boobron, really recognizable with the lookout tower next to it.


spacer2
The Överby Bridge is a beautiful old stone bridge near Boo Bruk AB.


spacer2
Next I ran across snowy Himfjäll Island and shot this broken bridge east of Österhällen leading to a small unknown Island.


spacer2
Gäddön has a nice straight wooden Pier bridge on poles. It looks like it’s been built yesterday. There’s absolutely no sign of subsidence.


spacer2
Then I went to the Mountain Region to get a picture of the bridge near Klinte.


spacer2
I am standing in the water, only knee deep, looking at the bridge near Muskudden Port Facility.


spacer2
A nice but narrow cable bridge crosses the Muskudden basin. Providing a shortcut to the Overseer’s Villa.


spacer2
Elevated railway (bridging the valley), that comes from Muskudden Port Warehouse and goes towards the Factory entrance RÖ (Redovisningskansli Öst) to the left.


spacer2
From The mountain Region I travelled to the Marshlands, where near the Skyteclubb this small stone bridge is found, with one of its two arks totally blocked.


spacer2
The broken Östertörn Bridge north of Stenmyra leads to another small and, for now, unreachable Island and the main land.


spacer2
Near Borgakulan I found this raised wooden walkway. For walking comfort I guess.


spacer2
On the South Coast this very long curvy walkway meanders through the reeds close to Tokeröd farm. It bridges from the savehouse to dry land.


spacer2
The Pier at Brevekins Camping connects the small savehouse island to the the South Coast Region.


spacer2
A strong looking small wooden bridge with rather sturdy support posts near Annatorp.


spacer2
In Tangetil I crossed this wooden railless walkway bridging the gap. It has a stone fundament though.


spacer2
This wooden walk bridge, also at Tangetil, really contributes to make it a wonderful sunny picture.


spacer2
And last but not least, this wooden pathway near Lännbacka completing this route until I find more.


spacer2
Funny Pontoon bridge north-east Stenmyra.


spacer2
Pier bridge to a safehouse camp on small island in Lake Avern north of Helgaryd.

Route 11: Kasematt or Defence Bunkers

Kasematt or Defence Bunkers
spacer2
On my travels through the Swedish game world, I came across a number of Concrete Buildings like the one, on this “Real world” picture below.


spacer2
These often partially covered, independant defence works, most likely remnants of WW2 are military defense buildings that offer some degree of protection against shelling and bombing and were built of reinforced concrete. I found 16 Kasematt total; 14 in Archipelago, 1 in the mountain Region, and 1 in the Marshland Region.
spacer2

                               Archipelago_Region

Starting off in Archipelago with a group of two Kasematt.
A kasematt at Saltholmstugan (1 of 2) -100, 3318.

                                  Mountain_Region

spacer2
First I thought these Swedish “Kasematt” bunkers were only featured in Archipelago Region. So I searched and searched and it seemed at first I was right. But then I found 2 more kasematt in two different regions. This one in the Mountain Region at -2854, 423.


spacer2

                                  Marshland_Region

Hi Gysbert, another interesting hiking route.
The first time i saw this kasematts i thougt it was a part of air ventilation for the bunkers. As i saw the first kasematts at the very end of Ibboholmen near the bridge to Salthamn. It has make me think of that idea. Yesterday I made a hike from Granthorp over the bridge to Salthamn Church and on my way to Dyviks Udde i came along the kasemattes at the Sandviken Camp. I tried to get in because there was a wooden Door at the back end but you can’t open it. I fired a HEP Bullet at it but nothing other happened that i killed myself :rofl:

Route 12: Dry Riverbed Route

spacer2
I started the run from the Klinte bay and followed the mostly dried-up riverbed all the way to Muskudden Port Dam. I’ve drawn a blue line on the map to show the route.


spacer2
I would love it irl to really walk over a dry and stoney riverbed.


spacer2
On the edge of Klinte as I am on the bend some 50 yards before the first Bridge, the sun breaks through. Great, that will liven up the photo’s.


spacer2
I past the first Bridge. Although there are still patches of water to be found, this part is pretty dry.


spacer2
At the second bridge there’s water but it’s not very deep. You see the runner under the bridge? He attacked me in the water. Well he tried…


spacer2
A lot of water here, but still only knee-deep at the deepest spots.


spacer2
Here the route goes up quite a bit. Hope it’s not too slippery.


spacer2
In fact the whole gully rises a lot from sea-level to the basin behind the dam.


spacer2
In the background you can see the elevated railway that comes from Muskudden Port and goes towards the Factory entrance. (RÖ Redovisningskansli Öst) to the left.


spacer2
Getting closer to the dam. Again there are runners here somewhere, I can hear them. Let’s not alert them, they will spoil this beautiful run for sure.


spacer2
Still going up.


spacer2
From where I am standing, underneath the elevated railway, I can see the Dam up ahead.


spacer2
Ok, a bit more water here. Best stick to the sides.


spacer2
There it is, the Dam. I’ll have to climb up there. But with my 7% jump boost on my shoes and 5% on my pants, that should be no trouble at all.


spacer2
Made it. :wink:


spacer2
I’m crossing the dam toward the basin, to have a closer look.


spacer2
Hmm… I think I can jump down on that ledge. It is under water though. Not sure how much.


spacer2
Oops, I can just stand here without going under, but there’s no way back up. Well, there is … fast travel or drowning! Anyways, It was a nice scenic route.

"Route 13: Harvester Dumping Stations

Red Harvester Dumping Stations
spacer2
This route is covering 22 Harvester Dumping Stations locations (aka, Dumping Vaults, Underground Storages, or Red Hatches), where Harvesters go to dump their loot harvest. The vaults can contain all kinds of loot from weapon attachments, to apparel items to help you complete the GZ clothing sets. Dumping stations were also part of the Scout challenges, where you had to loot 30 dumping Stations.

Let’s go, and find some!
spacer2
Brevikins Camping has 15 dumping stations. I believe we got our first introduction to these red hatches, in the FNIX Rising side-mission “The Hatches”, where we needed to loot three dumping stations at this camping.

Fiskebäck Docks has 2 as well.


spacer2
Then Ängnäsberg Data Center with only one Red Dumping Vault.
