It was THIS Big! is an achievement in The Long Dark.

Guide Edit

This achievement is obtained after catching a fish weighing greater than five kilograms. The only fish that can weight greater than five kilograms is the coho salmon. This fish can only be caught at fishing huts on the Coastal Highway map.

To maximise the chances of catching a fish weighing over five kilograms follow these best practises:

  • Pack several fishing tackle
  • Food and drink for a prolonged period fishing
  • Something to break the ice fishing hole such as a hunting knife

Then find a fishing hut, break the ice and fish until needing to eat, drink, or otherwise cannot. If the achievement has not yet unlocked then reload the save and try again until successful.
