Elite Heavy Shot, Misteriosa Island

Coordinates – 307,195

You’ll need the diving bell to reach the map at Ambergris Key which is on the second floor of the structure. The Heavy Shot upgrade itself is on the highest structure on Misteriosa Island. Climb to the top and look to the left of the water fountain.

Elite Hull Armor, San Ignacio
Coordinates – 379,770

Look for the wreck near some bright green seaweed. There’s a lot of sharks here but at least the wreck is fairly open meaning you don’t have to worry about getting in. If you haven’t already collected it you should see a bright animus fragment as you approach. Collect that then hang a left to find the chest and the plans.

As soon as you leave the diving bell you should see a wreck with some ruins to the right. Head to the front of the structure and you should find a door. The chest will be inside on the lower floor at the back. There’s a shark but if you’re quick it shouldn’t give you too much trouble.
