Frankly, i don't do the whole "e-beef" bs an i duno y u would have to try n start it when all im offering is to help others. keep that as a rhetorical thought n leave it at that.

back on topic now;

a way i found to get into the house after having finished the mission already was to create a new save file and continue off chapter 6, this is that start of the mission that leads you to the sewers & because its a new save you will be able to goto the house. so what i've done was started this new game up, and go into the house with the skull & join another players game. then simply quit and rejoin there game as you main character and you will then be able to pickup the blue skull and proceed to the resort an drop it off. however i was unable to drop off the purple skull as i believe you need to pickup & drop off in the same game session. the only way around this would be to have a friend help you and you take turns playing on the new character while your friend gets the craft, and then does the same to help you.

i've been using this method of joining games and switching characters to be able to jump around to whatever part of the game i'd like to play.

Great guide!! Have 41 of 48 achievements si far. Me and my mate just got the 72 locations. The three that we hadn't got were the three that you had pointed out. Hopefully have a 1000gs by the end of the week. Once again a great guide and many thanks.

I got the "Developer's 666 Craft".

I went on a workbench ... and crafted this blueprint and it supposed to give me "Left hand of Glova". I checked my inventory and NOTHING there. I thought maybe it was full and it dropped on the floor BUT NOTHING again.

- Did i do something wrong to get the "Left hand of Glova"?
- Is it a glitch?
- Do i need another item to use this ability?

No it happens occasionally.

On my main character I have made 5 of these now mainly because it seems like it has no physical item to drop. If you drop it it disappears. I've lost them because in haste I dropped it by mistake twice, once I made it and had no space in my inventory and the other I had space like you but it just vanished.

Would be a lot more complete if you said what the mods do and what is needed for them to be built.

Also, for the skull from the abandoned house...it's drop point seems glitched. I have watched the video and shot/threw weapons at 10+ canisters. It will not open at all. Do you have to be at a certain spot in the game to be able to access this door? I'm 100% sure it's the right one, to the right of the ladder.

EDIT: Yes, it will not open unless you talk to the man you saved after saving him.

These dev mods are freaking awesome. THey "look" like some basic weapon, but boy do they pack a HUGE punch. I was running around with the poison military knife making tank, and thugs puke and die in like 1 or 2 hits. Freaking Awesome.

tbh when i played this back in last september / october me and my buddies never got any of the skulls. we did go on a field day getting all the ammo blueprints tho! haha

you could do them in order, i would personally just have fun since its your first playthru. i tend to not go crazy over collectables when learning the game. but if you plan to, i would say wait till you unlock more areas. the pick up and drop off points are kind of scattered it looks like.

There are some of them that you are going to want to do in order. Due to their placement it is a hassle to get back to them after you have moved past that point. Also I believe there is one in Moresby (purple I think) that is inside this chick's apartment and after you go in and rescue her (it's a side quest) then you can't get back into her apartment. So you can't get it. Now that I think about it, that may be where you drop it off. Either way make sure you are aware of that before you ruin that. Now if for some reason you do, then you can jump into someone else's game and get it in their world if they haven't screwed it up too.
Other than that you can get them whenever... as long as you haven't gone to the prison of course.
