Frostpunk The Refugees Scout Locations

The table below shows the rewards and areas unlocked by visiting every location.


Utilizing the following strategies can increase the effectiveness of your scouts:

  • Scouts travel faster to known locations. If a scout is being sent after returning to your city, it’s often faster to send them to the nearest known location first.
  • Outpost Teams travel faster than scouts. If you have an outpost team available, you can send them along with your scouts to make locations known, even if the Outpost Team itself cannot search the location. Once the Outpost Team finds the location, resend the scout to the location to cut down the amount of time it takes for your scouts to travel.
  • Some locations trigger dilemmas that can cause you to lose a scouting party, such as Tesla City. The loss of your party is random, so you can save your game before searching the location and reload your game if your party ends up dying on the first attempt. This is known as “save scumming” and is sometimes considered cheating.
