Lost Planet 3 Albino Tarkaa Hunt Locations

The Lost Planet 3 Albino Tarkaa Hunt collectibles is the final set of hidden items and creatures that must be found by Jim Peyton on the planet he explores.

An Albino Tarkaa is a rare creature hidden within the planet’s areas, and it is probably the hardest to find collectible in Lost Planet 3.

At the beginning of the video game this type of collectible doesn’t appear in the collectibles tab, but later in the game when you reach the Camp of Forgotten, you will receive a side-job from the local vendor.

The vendor is willing to sell Jim a series of special upgrades, but in exchange he asks you to collect the DNA from 10 Albino Tarkaa.

Furthermore, he is willing to give you an item that allows Jim to hear the rare Tarkaa when he gets close to them. But even so, the Albino Tarkaas are hard to find; therefore, the following Lost Planet 3 guide was created to help you locate all these Akrids which will allow you to enhance Peyton’s abilities.

After you get the quest from the NPC, open the menu and check the tab containing the collectibles. Notice that for each Albino Tarkaa you have to solve a riddle which will eventually point you to the area where you will find the Akrid.

Nevertheless the Albino Tarkaa riddles are misleading and offer little information on their locations; therefore, using the text guide below along with the video guide, you will be able to find all of them faster.

When you locate an Albino Tarkaa you will have to tag it in order to get the creature’s DNA. If you shoot it by mistake you have to exit its area and return later.

Albino Tarkaa Hunt Locations Guide

Albino Tarkaa DNA #1

Description: “Cross a flying fox for her perilous home near a groaning ravine.”

Location: The first Albino Tarkaa is located in Coronis. Exit the main hangar and turn left. Move towards the edge of the mountain and look for a spot to attach your Rig’s winch.

After you extend the winch, zip to the other side and look up on the opposite wall to locate the Akrid. After you get the DNA of the first Tarkaa you will get the First Tag achievement/trophy.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #2

Description: “An elevator reaches for a stormy sky – at its foot, look high.”

Location: For the second Albino Tarkaa, travel to Marshall’s Gorge before completing the game, and after you have all upgrades.

Use the winch to get to the other side of the rock that blocks your way, and then enter the science facility. Wait for the scanning sequence to end, then enter the main compound and look up and to the right. The Albino Tarkaa is attached to the wall.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #3

Description: “Seething Akrid cave with stalactite teeth-skyward is she found.”

Location: The third Albino Tarkaa is hard to find because of its position. The location presented in the riddle, or the “seething Akrid cave with stalactite teeth” is in fact Diaz Cavern.

To get the Albino Tarkaa DNA #3, travel to White Canyon Junction, then to Diaz Cavern. When you enter the cavern clear the area of Akrids and look for an opening on the right side of the main tunnel while facing the cavern’s depths.

It is important to be aware that you won’t be able to see the entire creature, but only the moving tail; therefore, pay close attention to the sounds made it and remain near the right edge of the tunnel.

Once you spot the tail, shoot it and maintain your weapon’s reticule in the same position to collect the third Albino Tarkaa DNA sample.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #4

Description: “T-ENG tank near our forgotten home – go below to find her above.”

Location: The fourth Albino Tarkaa is located in The Killing Fields. Travel to the entrance to Camp of Forgotten but don’t enter. While standing at the entrance turn left and you will see a cave you can reach if you use your Rig’s winch.

Enter the said cave and look up to locate a grappling point for your magnetic hook. Go up and then drop down. Look behind the canisters to see the Tarkaa on the ceiling of the underground crevasse.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #5

Description: “Dark hidden belly – she bides her time within the war machines and arms”

Location: The location of the fifth Albino Tarkaa is the Security Installation, or the Armory from Pickett’s Folly. When you enter the facility, turn left and follow the ramp down to the underground chamber.

Now turn right, around the shelves and look for the Albino Tarkaa behind the ventilation window located on the wall. It is in an area lighted in red.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #6

Description: “Frozen fields of white amidst pumping iron beasts – she hides in its warmth.”

Location: The sixth Albino Tarkaa you can hunt is located in Bailey’s Crossing. After you defeat the King Crab, return to the area, and go up the hill in the center of the zone, using your magnetic hook.

Go around the shack and descend into the hole, then look for a balcony, and a console. Next, look on the tanks near the balcony and tag the Akrid.

Albino Tarkaa Location #7

Description: “Pristine plain scarred by a fallen cask – look within her dead broken earth.”

Location: For the seventh Albino Tarkaa DNA you must explore Bishop’s Wake.

When you get to the area, open your map and notice the smaller area to the south. It is a crevasse you can access and inside it, on the opposite wall is the Albino Tarkaa.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #8

Description: “A tower top in magma seas – testament to a soldier’s folly.”

Location: The eighth Albino Tarkaa requires your presence in the area called Picket’s Folly. To find it, travel to the said area, and look for a point that allows you to connect your Rig’s Winch to the areas on the northern side of the map.

Zip once and go through the large pipe, then turn left and zip again to reach a higher area. Turn around and look for the Albino Tarkaa on top of the tower behind you. It is attached to the roof.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #9

Description: “Stalkers lurk in a dead courtyard – look down upon trunks, crates and boxes.

Location: The ninth Albino Tarkaa is probably the hardest to find, since the riddle is confusing and misleading. To get the DNA you have to go to Marshall’s Gorge and enter the science facility.

As you advance you will eventually reach a large room with multiple levels.

The room is in fact the dead courtyard mentioned in the description. From here, use your hook to reach the third level of the room, and place yourself on the platform in the middle of the area.

Now, while facing the central area, turn right and you will see some boxes at level two. Behind them is the Albino Tarkaa, but wait for the creature to move in order to tag it.

Albino Tarkaa DNA #10

Description: “She hides within the den of hunters – near a carriage to the sky.”

Location: The last Lost Planet 3 Albino Tarkaa can be found in Shackleton’s Peak. To find it, go back to the area where you can dock your Rig and climb the stairs to the first shack.

Inside is the first console you have activated earlier in the game. Behind the said shack is a tunnel that takes you to the second console. Advance and when you exit the tunnel you will be inside a cave.

Eventually, you will also be attacked by several stalkers. Once you defeat them, look up and you will see a cave on the right wall. If you look closer you will also see an Albino Tarkaa inside the cave.

Tag it to complete the set of collectibles.
