  • If you've accepted the quest Homeopathological, you'll be asked to open a Red Chest as part of this.
  • Another Red Chest is available if you're on the mission Bad Vibrations; there'll be a portion where you have to interact with a column of steam and the chest will be visible.
  • From the most South-Westerly Catch-A-Ride, you're going to want to nip into the structure immediately to the West. You'll get to a structure with some stone pillars that you can scale in a right-angle formation to reach a Red Chest.
