Prisoner hardpoint locations in Crackdown 3

Find and free the militia from the prisoner hardpoints around New Providence in Crackdown 3.


To fully complete Crackdown 3, a whole lot of items will need to be collected and several missions finished, including the prisoner hardpoints. These prisons hold several militia units, which when freed, will help the Agency take down TerraNova once and for all. Finding all the prisoner hardpoints can be difficult, as they only appear on the map when players get relatively close.

Prisoner hardpoint locations

There are 12 prisoner hardpoints scattered around New Providence, with the main cluster being in the western side of the island. While it is possible to finish Crackdown 3 without finding all prison locations, if players want to unlock all the Achievements, freeing the militia will be a priority.
