Nothing’s more frustrating than a locked door. Here’s how to get to and open the chests in The Coil in Destiny 2.
How to Get to and Open The Coil Hidden Chests in Destiny 2
As you traverse Riven’s Lair and The Coil, you’ll likely encounter doors. And if you have the Wombo Detector or another chest detector on your Ghost, you’ll likely know that there’s a chest behind them.
To get to these hidden chests, you’ll need to score high enough to open these doors. And that can only be done in The Coil seasonal activity. Riven’s Lair doesn’t have a score associated with it.
There are four hidden chests in The Coil, which can be found in the following locations:
- Splintered Geode – First Pathway.
- Fetid Conduit – Second Pathway.
- Fetid Conduit – Third Pathway.
- Fetid Conduit – Fourth Pathway.
New pathways will open as the weeks progress. But for now, you can access pathways one through four by achieving a high enough score. This is easy enough to do in The Coil as you complete loops through the activity, as you’ll be going through the same areas repeatedly.
To increase the number of points you have, be sure to crack open pots and gather the Glass Shards. Killing enemies and completing objectives will also increase your score. However, I found that simply repeating the activity at least three times was sufficient to ensure that I could get each chest.
One chest will be boobytrapped! It’s the locked one, and it will have spike holes surrounding it.
Each chest offers a seasonal weapon, +10 Spirit of Riven reputation, and possibly a Wish Engram.
The easiest way to find these chests is to have a Wombo Detector equipped to your Ghost, as it will highlight the hidden chests once you get within 40 meters of them. These chests tend to be tucked away in odd areas of the map or in balconies that may be above or below you.
