      There are no set locations for this quest, you will find them randomly in camps littered around the map so it is immposible to make a map for it.

        To add to the other location listed here in the comments, I found two more (actually while I was on my way to the one that was posted.) Ignore the waypoint for the map shots, just look for my vehicle/controller reticle.

          I had one in the south of the map, it was quite long to find it since I was not expecting to see a camp there...
          Here is the location in case someone is compiling the possible locations:

            Genuinely shocked at the lack of guides for all these annoying collectable missions with no quest markers (not just on this site I mean, but the internet as a whole).

            Well, time to tackle another one of them without a guide, see you on the other side in about an hour or two...
