Dying Light Blueprint Locations in the Slums

Blueprints are schematics needed for crafting weapons and weapon upgrades. You can acquire them as mission rewards, collect them around the city, buy them from vendors and through other game activities.
When you use your survival sense, if there is a blueprint nearby, it starts glowing with bright green color. Blueprints can enhance your combat experience by adding bleed, fire, lighting effects and, in general, they are extremely fun to have. They also have fun names that reflect the place they can be found at. In the guide bellow you can find names and locations of all blueprints that we have found so far, ordered by locations where we found them. We were going through the Slums map in the following directions: North-East-South-Central-West.
