How to Unlock and Upgrade your Camp

You will eventually unlock the ability to set up Camp after spending a few hours out in the wild in New World. To begin with it will just be a small fire pit that offers a respawn point and a place to rest up and regain lost HP, later upgrades will enable you to craft important items such as health and mana potions. This How to Unlock and Upgrade your camp will tell you everything you need to know about camps in New World.

You will not be able to set up camp straight away in New World, you will first need to work your way through the main questline until you are told to visit the nearest settlement. Continue completing the quests at the settlement until you meet the Survivalist of your starting area. When you talk to the Survivalist, you will unlock the ability to set up a Tier 1 Camp, and he will give you a quest to go out into the wilderness and build a camp with your newfound skill. In order to make the camp you will first need to find a suitable location. When you have found one, press the 'Y' button on your keyboard. When you do this, a ghost blueprint of your Camp will appear which you must place down in the spot you found, which must be fairly flat ground. To build the actual Camp you must now interact with the ghost blueprint and requires 5 Green Wood and 1 Flint, which you will have no trouble finding in your surrounding area early in the game.

Once you have built your camp you can use it as a crafting point to make basic tools and items. The more you upgrade your Camp the more items you will be able to craft. The game will alert you once you hit the required minimum level to unlock the next tier level of Camp, listed below are all five tiers and the level the Camp becomes unlocked:

- Tier 1: Level 5
- Tier 2: Level 15
- Tier 3: Level 25
- Tier 4: Level 40
- Tier 5: Level 55

There are five quests in total you need to complete to unlock each tier of Camp, these are listed below along with how you can find them.

Friends in Fashion - Upgrade your Camp to Tier 2:
To get the Friends in Fashion quest, head to Monarch's Bluffs and speak with the Survivalist Bercina Thornton. She can be found near the center of the hamlet.

Animal Instincts - Upgrade your Camp to Tier 3:
When you reach level 25, make your way to Cutlass Keys and head along the road that leads southwest out of town. There you should encounter an NPC named Tosch who after speaking with him will reward you with the Animal Instincts quest.

Lupine Observations - Upgrade your Camp to Tier 4:
Once you reach level 40 visit the Restless Shores settlement. To pick up the Lupine Observations quest, you just need to speak with the NPC named Rilette Wilson.

Fading Lights - Upgrade your Camp to Tier 5:
After reaching level 55, make your way to Edengrove and speak with an NPC named Derick Wardell to obtain the Fading Lights quest.

Take a look at our How to Increase Inventory Space guide if you need to expand the amount of space you have available in your inventory for the items you gather.
