The broken compass is a compass used in the A New Direction achievement. It can be found alongside the Survivor's Journal in a damaged backpack. It can be found at the shipwreck on the western coast of Anachronia, on the north side of the burnt-out firepit. It is Irwinsson's lucky compass, and if brought to him he will beg the player to repair it. The compass arrow can be found after skinning a creature during Big Game Hunter. Using the arrow on the broken compass makes the engraved compass.
