The key to survival in horror reboot Pathologic 2 is all about quickly learning how to properly navigate the confusing city layout to avoid infected areas, stay away from crazed drunks at night, and find places to trade for food or take a few hours off for resting.

Just simply getting stuck behind a wall with no way to the next district can be the difference between life and death when your hunger and thirst meters bottom out, or when you find yourself empty on immunity as the plague moves into a new area.

Still getting acquainted with the map layout and not quite sure where to go yet? Below we break down the locations of any place you might want to go, from clothes stores for better equipment to grocery stores for picking up some salted fish or dried toast.

Want to know where to manually save your game instead? We've got all the save clock locations listed over here.

Pathologic 2 Kid Stash Locations

Each stash location is marked with the  icon in the map above.

These hidden kid gang stash locations are extremely helpful in getting items to trade once the prices at the shops skyrocket and you are constantly starving. Don't grab them all right away though, as you'll run out of inventory space quickly and its best to leave some around for emergency situations.

Just don't forget -- you need to follow the rules and put at least one item from your inventory back into the stash when you take all the loot out!

While you can find the stash locations at any time through exploration, eventually you'll get a quest to track them all down if you interact with the Soul And A Half gang peacefully.

Pathologic 2 Clothes Store Locations

Each clothes store is marked with a  icon in the map above. Head to these locations to grab new masks, shirts, boots, and pants to increase your damage reduction in combat as well as your immunity.

Pathologic 2 Grocery Locations

Each grocery store is marked with a  icon in the map above. These will be your lifeline in the first few days as you struggle not to starve to death but have plenty of actual coins to spend. You may want to stock up on as much as you can on the first day when prices are still low.

Unfortunately, the grocery prices quickly become more expensive than they are worth and will need to start trading for food instead starting on day 3.

What people want in exchange for food will frequently be items you don't want to part with, however, like immunity boosters or items for repairing the workshop components in the Haruspex's lair.

Pathologic 2 Herb Locations

Each herb root dig location is marked with a  icon in the map above.

These locations are where you can find the three different kinds of herbs for crafting vaccines to use while trying to heal various NPCs. You'll need quite a few of these if you want to try to save as many people as possible inbetween main story missions.

Pathologic 2 Shop Locations

The coin shops are marked with the  icon in the map above. Unlike most locations, these shops will take actual money for a variety of items rather than directly trading. If you've got extra money to spare, they can be a great resource for picking up items you need to trade or use for repairs.

Pathologic 2 Pharmacy Locations

Each pharmacy found in the city is marked with the  icon in the map above. Whether you take damage from starvation or getting pummeled by angry townsfolk, eventually you'll need to head here to buy bandages and tourniquets to stay alive.

Pathologic 2: How to Save (And All Save Locations) Thu, 23 May 2019 15:39:40 -0400 Ty Arthur

There's more to overcome than just hunger, exhaustion, and disease in Pathologic 2, as the game actively works against you in a variety of ways. Most notably, the game only auto saves during the insane fever dream of an intro. It's probably in case people jettison early but then later decide maybe they are willing to go a little further down this bizarre rabbit hole.

After that point, there are no more auto saves. You have to manually save your game during the 12-day rush to stop the plague but you can't do it from the menu like in any other modern title!

Pathologic 2 sticks to its roots and wants to make this experience as difficult as possible. In keeping with the limited-time theme, while playing as the Haruspex, you can only save your game at a limited number of standing wooden clocks found in specific buildings.

Pathologic 2 Save Clock Locations

 Clock locations for saving your game during the 12 day plague battle

This old-school save design is made more difficult by the fact that many of these buildings aren't accessible at all times or on every day. Quite a few of them can't be entered until after completing the first day or going through various quests, and some of them actually get closed off on later days as the plague progresses.

Be sure to keep note of where to find them, because you don't want to lose a whole day's progress before shutting down! All the save clock locations are marked with yellow stars in the map above, while the table below lists the specific names of the buildings to look for in each district.

Note that in some cases, there are multiple clocks in what appears to be a single building, but they can only be reached by entering that building from different sides, like with the Olgimsky's mansion called The Lump.

 The ticking clock of time moving ever forward is quite literal in this game

During the first day, your best bet to save your game is to head into the Warehouse section at the southern end of the city and enter the area where Bad Grief holds up shop, or head up to the north side and enter The Shelter where Lara Ravel lives. 

Because of your quest to find allies among your old friends, both of those locations will be open and available to you and are clearly marked on your map.

If you've talked to the kid gangs and found their lair, the Soul And A Half Fortress is another great place to save because you aren't likely to get mugged and you can trade for items with the kids in the warehouse.
