The GPS locator can be used in tandem with your handy GPS. Once picked up, you can find your stash of GPS locator in the orange bin inside your inventory up in the top left.

First GPS Locator

The first GPS locator can be found to the west of the shovel cave entrance. If you follow the path up to the indicator, you’ll arrive at the top of the cliff with a rope tied around the rock, sadly one of your teammates hangs dead from the other end of that rope. After cutting him loose you can loot his items including the first GPS locator.

Second GPS Locator

The second GPS locator can be found in a small raft drifting off the west coast of the island and to reach it you’ll need to make a swim for it.

Before you dive in, make sure you have some long-range weapon because as soon as you come aboard, you’ll realize you’re not alone. So loot the GPS locator and fight your way back to shore.
