Soulmask’s expansive map is filled with secrets waiting to be uncovered. Unlike many games, exploring new areas in Soulmask doesn’t automatically reveal them on your map. To clear the fog of war and reveal more of the map, specific actions are required. This guide will provide detailed instructions on how to uncover new parts of the map in Soulmask.

In Soulmask, players begin with only the southeast portion of the map visible. No matter how much exploring is done, new areas will not appear until the appropriate actions are taken. The key to revealing the map in Soulmask lies in deterring Barbarian Scouts.

Scouts are marked on your map, even if their camps are within fog-covered areas. There are two key scout camps in the early-game area: the Western Rainforest Scout and the Northern Rainforest Scout.

  • To deter a scout, reduce their health to about 30% of their maximum.
  • A prompt will appear to press “E” to deter when within melee range.
  • Successfully deterring a scout will reveal the portion of the map they are responsible for.
  • Be cautious not to kill the scout; if killed, no map area will be revealed and the scout will respawn after approximately 15 minutes.

This scout is located north, requiring navigation around a large lake. The camp includes:

  • One Barbarian
  • One Bush Dog

Tips for Success

  • Bring a Tribesman to assist but set them to “Assist” rather than “Active” to avoid them killing the scout.
  • Make sure to upgrade your character, equipped with stone weapons and basic clothing before attempting to fight the Scout Camp.


Clearing the fog of war in Soulmask involves strategically deterring Barbarian Scouts. By following the steps outlined and approaching each scout with the right preparations, players can gradually reveal the map and enjoy a fuller exploration of Soulmask’s vast world.
