Uncharted 4 Rock Cairn locations guide: Where to knock down every rock pile in Madagascar

While you progress through Madagascar on your adventure, you'll encounter a series of Uncharted 4 Rock Cairns that you need to knock over to earn the hidden Not a Cairn in the World trophy. If you're not sure what you're looking for in Chapter 10 of Uncharted 4, these 16 cairns are traditional stacks of rocks forming a small tower, which handily you can demolish by either driving through them in your jeep, or getting out and performing a melee attack on them. You should follow the order we've set in this guide for collecting them, as you'll hit several points of no return during the chapter, though at least if you do miss any Uncharted 4 Rock Cairn locations then you can replay the chapter and pick them up on your next playthrough.
