[HOT] : HOW TO ERMINATE PORT DU NORD (ALASKA) 100% IN SNOWRUNNER
The following guide introduces you all the steps to follow, step by step, to complete 100% the Port of the North map in Alaska. So that means completing all missions, unlocking all achievements, and collecting all vehicles and upgrades. Of course, if you don’t want to spoil the game, I invite you not to read it.
Note that this guide is a translation of the excellent work done by -Stuart- on Reddit, whom I thank greatly for his work and for accepting that I translate it for the Francophone community of Snowrunner. You will find the original article at this address.
In the guide you will find suggestions for trucks to use. This choice is very subjective, ceveryone has their favorites. In this guide, we only use two main vehicles. However, you will accumulate a lot of money as you progress, so feel free to experiment. As a reminder, you can buy and then resell vehicles and upgrades for the same price. So you don’t lose anything by trying different vehicles.
While this guide is quite effective, it is not a speedrun. There are more efficient ways to complete areas 100%.
On the Port du Nord map, we will discover the following elements:
- 4 watchtowers,
- 8 improvements,
- 2 vehicle,
- 28 missions (7 contracts + 17 tasks + 4 challenges),
- 1 success.
Step 1: Discovery of watchtowers and improvements
If you followed the previous Michigan map guide, you should arrive in Alaska with the Tatarin available in your garage. This will allow you to directly unlock your seventeenth achievement:
- Bering Strait (Own a TUZ 420 “Tatarin” TUZ 420 and park it in any garage in Alaska)
The principle of the Alaska maps is exactly the same as in Michigan. So here we are again to discover watchtowers, improvements, vehicles and complete missions. However, the big difference is that now you will be riding in snow and ice, and sometimes very difficult terrain. The Tatarin does not have snow chains, but it is always the best choice to discover the 4 watchtowers and collect the 8 upgrades from the menu. You can help yourself to next article if necessary and from the above card.
Step 2: Opening the roads
Before we continue exploring, let’s start by unblocking the important roads in the area. If you are still using the Azov, we recommend purchasing and equipping an advanced winch, tires with chains and a flatbed trailer.
Start with the contract Construction de Pipeline which is not complicated, just like the tasks Bridge repair , Rocky obstacle , Falling stones and Falling stones (two tasks are actually called the same way, probably an inaccuracy in the translation). Not far from there you should see a marker allowing you to unlock the Royal BM17 . Collect it, keep it, and (depending on your choice) sell it.
Regarding the BM17 is a really popular truck among gamers. It is all-terrain, powerful, fast and has an exchangeable AWD. However, it doesn’t have mud tires or differential locks and seems to get damaged easily.
Step 3: Validate all challenges and tasks
Now that the roads are open, a lot of tasks are easy to complete with the Tatarin. So start with Tank delivery , Discontinued supplies , Find the radio station , Trailer parking .
You can also try to do the challenges Moving house nearby, but towing the trailer with the Tatarin’s winch may be difficult, you may lose the cargo. Go slowly or come back later with your Azov equipped with a tray. The other challenges Race to the flags , Conquest northern mountain and Western mountain conquest can easily be supplemented with Tatarin.
Then finish Engulfed hummer to unlock the Lobster H2 , then continue to use the Tatarin to complete Stuck in the mountains , Check the high voltage lines and Lost repair trailer .
Depending on the route you take, some tasks may not appear on your map. This is for example the case of Must not spoil which is located on a side road near the port. Then do Lost cistern which is in the hills directly behind the garage at the end of a dead end track next to a radio tower.
Go back to garage, equip the Azov with a low hitch and the small loading crane. Pick up a flatbed semitrailer from the trailer store next door. Then finish The lost pipe, Badly licked bear and Containers in the river . Remember that even when the small loader crane cannot lift something, it can still slide it onto the trailer, which is enough to be able to hook your cargo.
Step 4: Validation of the last contracts
When you are at the port, activate the contract Drilling supply and pick up the freight container, then the pipes and deliver them to the drilling site. There is a fuel trailer at the drill site if you need it.
Then activate the contract Fuel delivery and load the 4 cargoes onto your platform at the drilling site. Make sure to complete your deliveries through the maintenance site. On the maintenance site, activate Drill parts delivery which will bring you to the factory. Activate now Polar base supply , load the metal and go get the fuel. The bricks will have to be collected on a second trip. Then complete Barrels for the port .
You should have a contract that is not locked: Floating drill . To validate it, you will have to tackle a new type of trailer, complex to transport due to the terrain. I recommend switching to a heavy truck with a high hitch. The Pacific P12 is my favorite, just make sure to equip all available upgrades including snow chains before heading out to deliver the trailer.
By this point you should have discovered 4 Watchtowers, unlocked 8 upgrades, and completed 28 Missions (7 Contracts + 17 Tasks + 4 Challenges) Congratulations, you can now head to the second map in the area, Mountain River.
