Putting an end to every member of the Cult of Kosmos is a fun experience in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. However, finding every cultist can become quite tiresome. To discover the locations of each one, you need to find clues — which is why many players often ask 'where is the shipwreck cove cultist clue?'. You know it is somewhere along the Scavenger's Coast, but its true location is often a mystery.
This guide will not only tell you the exact location of the clue but also provide a few tips concerning how to take down the target afterward.
Updated on July 14, 2021 by Rebecca O’Neill: This clue can be quite confusing to find as there are two clues located here. The guide has previously laid out how you can find the cultist clue in Shipwreck Cove and what the other clue is that can be found here. It has been updated to reflect this secondary clue that you can find, in case you wanted to gather them both in one go.
No one wants to travel to a location multiple times to grab items, and you shouldn’t have to when playing Odyssey. If you want to know where to find the Order of the Ancients clue, then a quick search will bring you to its hiding spot.
The Confusion Surrounding The Clue
While looking for information about this clue online, people have been a little confused as to its exact location. Much of the fans' uncertainty has come from the fact that there are two clues in Shipwreck Cove.
One clue is for a Cult of Kosmos member, and the other is for a member of the Order of the Ancients (as part of the Legacy of the Blade DLC). It's odd that Ubisoft would put two different clues so close together and have both be on dead bodies, and it is just one reason why Origins is better than Odyssey.
The Cult Of Kosmos Cultist Clue Is On The Rocks
Shipwreck Cove is located in the northern area of Scavenger's Coast in Achaia.
Once you're there, head to the rocky area by the ocean and clamber over it. On the other side of the rocks, there's a corpse which you must loot to get the clue.
Taking Down The Cultist
After getting the clue, you discover that Machaon the Feared is your target, and you should have your best armor equipped. The game will mark his location on the map — it's in the northwest area of Achaia. More specifically, he resides in the Patrai Military Shipyard with several guards around him.
Despite having protection, it's not too hard to get to him considering the place is out in the open. It should be pretty simple to sneak up behind him and use a stealth attack to lower his health.
Once the fight commences, he tries to use his spear to take you down. His attacks aren't too difficult to predict as the cultist doesn't throw out any fancy moves. You can just whittle his health down with fast attacks from that point and find yourself claiming a relatively easy victory.
Where To Find The Order Of The Ancients Clue
The Order of the Ancients clue is also in Shipwreck Cove, but you must enter the water to acquire this one. You will see several shipwrecks lying about and there will be a mast near some rocks with a dead body on its deck.
Go up to the dead body and collect the clue, which will reveal the location of The Order of the Storm Cultist named Sophos the Broker.
Taking Down The Cultist
The Cultist will be located in the Shipyard of Patrai, which can be found in the northwest of Achaia, and ironically is the same location as the cultist from the Cult of Kosmos. All you need to do is head north of Mount Panachaikos to the water and this is where you will find your target.
He is not an easy kill though as he does have security to protect him, so come ready for a fight with your best abilities equipped. You might even have some civilians who come to his aid as well and you should aim to be at Level 56 before engaging in this battle.
