"There are components to machine gun scattered around. If you find all of these components, I can reassemble the weapon for you. Bring me the Body, Magazine, Stock, and Barrel."



Find all of the machine gun parts.
  • Machine Gun Body
  • Machine Gun Magazine
  • Machine Gun Stock
  • Machine Gun Barrel


The gun parts are hidden amid the buildings of Thor Digtown and the encampment itself is populated with some well armed and aggressive enemies. The way point only shows the general area.

  • Barrel: It is at the top of a metal ramp that overlooks the entrance on the east side of the camp. The base of the ramp is near a lean-to covering two lockers and a Jakobs fuel tank.
  • Stock: It isn't far from the body. It can be seen by backing up a few paces and looking right to see a small camp fire going with some meat cooking. There is an ammo box at one side of the camp, directly above this ammo box on that metal container is the stock.
  • Body: It is on top of the left hand silo near the shops (coming at it towards the shop). Jump up at the side of the silo to collect the prize.
  • Magazine: It is on top of the blue hut north of the way point marker. Use the concrete wall near the hut to get up there.


"I was able to assemble those parts into a complete weapon. Here's your new machine gun. Enjoy!"
