Journey To The Savage Planet Guide All Explorer Logs Locations

There are several Explorer Logs hidden in Journey to the Savage Planet. It’s mostly just a challenge for completionists since you’ll finish the “Lost and Found” sidequest and you’ll be able to read the logs. This guide lets you know all their locations.

Note: Some locations may be unreachable unless you have fully upgraded your gadgets (ie. Quadruple Thrusters). If you need help with upgrades, we’ve got you covered with our Science Experiments and Explorer Rank mini-guide.

Move onwards until you reach a small clearing. You’ll remember this as the location where you were first able to use your thrusters to double jump. This was also the first time you kicked Flufferbirds inside the Meat Vortex plant. Fun memories!

But, rather than going there, look down and to the left. You’ll see several green pillars that are floating in mid-air. Jump to these pillars and throw Grapple Seeds on the barnacles below.
