Default Borderlands 2 Chest Guide - A work in progress

R.I.P.

If you are reading this, this guide has been abandoned. It is too far from completion, I have no motivation to complete it, and no one is stepping up to take it over so I assume this will just end up being an abandoned project that will remain incomplete, unless, you guys complete it for me.


If you guys want to add more to the guide but don't want to fully take over the making of it, diabolic set up a wiki page where you can add to it whenever and if you ever want to. Link

Introduction Stuff

This guide is currently a work in progress. I only have 11 areas done and those are the easy ones to go through. There are a couple of rather convoluted areas such as Opportunity that I am really dreading doing and I usually only do this stuff on my own time. There are holes here and there and a lot of areas missing, which I will get around to doing when I can.

FYI, once I play through the game a couple of times I'll write a full guide, but for now, I might post short guides on specific areas for the time being. I won't reserve any posts and this'll be a standalone guide for now. There is no formatting for it yet as it's not big enough to be a full-blown "Chest Locations Guide".

Edit: Okay, so as of no longer need helpers to get pictures for this guide. I already have a helper currently. If you want to contribute though, it is appreciated all the same. Same as for the other, I'd like a picture of the chest (not too close up but maybe back up a little so the surroundings are shown) and a picture of its location on the map. Screenshots from the PC version are preferred for the better quality. I'd like you to PM me the screenshots and contributions rather than posting them here, since I'm far more likely to see it if it's in my inbox rather than in this thread.

Southern Shelf:

Second area of the game.


Outhouse #1: Exit the town through the gate and jump down the cliff to your left. Head left towards the bandit camp with the fuse box. Near the fuse box is an outhouse.

Red Chest #1: Head towards Bewm Boom but follow the ice shelf to the large, vast area that is well out of the way. You'll know what I mean. At the end of it is a ship with a red chest on it.

White Chest #1: Head towards Bewm Boom. When you enter the bandit camp, go up the stairs and then the ladder. Turn left and jump to the roof with the white chest.

Red Chest #2: Cross the bridge and jump down, but turn around, call the elevator up and stay off it, and turn right into the small room. There is a well-hidden red chest here.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/nn69L.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/NYa6h.jpg


White Chest #2: Continue onward to the bandit camp/Flynt's ship. Enter the first gate, and before you go through the second gate, look to your left. There should be a small structure with a large skull hanging and a white chest under it.

Outhouse #2: Pass the second gate and look to your right. In between the bandit huts is an outhouse.

White Chest #3: Continue until you get to a Med Vendor. Go up the stairs and to your left is a white chest that is difficult to miss.

White Chest #4: Continue through the camp and ascend the first set of stairs. Then continue and go up the second set of stairs and take a right, and then another right into the building with all the beds. There is a white chest here.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/4ozSC.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/9p5V3.jpg


Outhouse #3: Kill as many enemies as possible here and eventually, before the ramp leading up to Flynt, a wall should fall over and bandit reinforcements will come out of the storage containers. In this area is an outhouse.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/b4keV.jpg

Red Chest #3: After killing Flynt, there is a red chest behind the garage door that claptrap opens. Very difficult to miss, its placement makes it obvious the player was just given this chest.

Southern Shelf Bay:


This is a pretty good area for farming for your lower leveled characters. I suppose this'll be part of my farming guide when I make that, but I figured I'd post this since I decided to run through the area searching for chests. Hope this helps. As far as I know these are all the chests in the area. Let me know if there are any I missed.


White Chest #1: Instead of heading toward the bay area where all the boats are harbored, head along the ice shelf on the right and follow it until you get to a large area with bullymongs at the end. You'll have met a new-u on the way there. Make your way up the ice shelf until you get to a small building with a white chest next to it.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/YeDxn.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/NL9ir.jpg


Outhouse #1: Look toward the bay. Off in the distance are several boats leading up to one big one. If you think you have the health and shields to jump down and make it there, do so; tip: dash and jump repeatedly instead of just running through. You'll take less damage. Some of the boats have a low platform you can jump onto to make it onto the boats. Find one of these and hop on. Fight your way through the bandits to get to the large ship. On the left side of the deck is an outhouse.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/g0tjE.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/ibl5k.jpg


Trunk #1: On the same boat, find a ladder on the right side of the deck and climb up. There is a trunk containing some loot up here.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/Y16f3.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/MXieS.jpg


Outhouse #2: Make your way through the chain of boats back onto the boardwalk area. Follow the path towards the stairs that go up and on your left you should see an outhouse along the way.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/GSU4l.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/UOBTt.jpg


White Chest #2: Go up the stairs and follow it but go down the next staircase you see. Follow this area through and there is a white chest at the end.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/13cZR.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/advK4.jpg


Outhouse #3: Go back up the stairs and follow the path you would normally take to go up to the building that Midgemong breaks out of, but instead of turning and going up the stairs, at the end of the area is an outhouse.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/VUZEb.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/0Mpkq.jpg


Trunk #2: Enter the building Midgemong dashed out of. Behind the counter is a trunk containing loot, but also be warned that, the last time I went there, some badass enemies pop out of the door on the right. There is also a weapons vendor here to buy stuff from and possibly sell any excess loot.

Southpaw Steam and Power:


There are four Assassins here that all have a higher chance of dropping the Emporer, correct? It's a small area so knowing the chests wouldn't hurt while farming these guys.


White Chest #1: After reaching the second New-U, after Oney and down the stairs, there is a white chest on your right.


Chest Picture: http://imgur.com/WxdeP
Map Location: http://imgur.com/jLtoA


White Chest #2: In the same room as... Reeth was it? The third assassin, the long corridor before the third New-U. To your right just before the low stairs at the end of the room in the corner is a white chest.


Chest Picture: http://imgur.com/taUHL
Map Location: http://imgur.com/Dhwlj


White Chest #3: In the same room as the third New-U, or the room right after the previous one, to your left after going up the stairs is a white chest somewhat hidden behind the pipe.


Chest Picture: http://imgur.com/NIk77
Map Location: http://imgur.com/JpSNi


Red Chest #1: After the fourth assassin, take the one-way shortcut back to the beginning. If you don't know where that is, look for a gate with a green/red switch by it. Activate the switch to open the gate and at the end of the corridor is a red chest that can not be missed.

The Dust:


Only the third guide completed despite it being a huge map.


Dahl Chest #1: Grab a runner (I guess) and go behind Ellie's Garage. Follow the path all the way to the area where the bandits and spiderants are fighting and the third building at the top of the hill has a Dahl chest leaning next to it.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/IDOqE.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/7aotu.jpg


Dahl Chest #2: Head to the church where you have the shootout in
"The Good, The Bad, The Mordecai". Against the left of the building is a Dahl chest.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/tatNF.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/lFUom.jpg


Dahl Chest #3: Go back a little and jump down to the catch-a-ride. Spawn a new vehicle and head to the stone ramp that gets you into the Buzzard area. These directions assume you land on the right side, not the left. Around the next corner, through the two-story building and past another building on your right you will come out to an open area with more bandits. On your left is some stairs leading up a building to a Dahl Chest.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/CzAWl.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/p11R8.jpg


Dahl Chest #4: Continue forward and look out for a sign on top of a beam saying "death" and having two arrows pointing up. The next building on the right has a ladder that leads to another Dahl Chest.

Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/MoYAp.jpg


Dahl Chest #6: Grab your runner and jump down, pass the catch-a-ride east of the buzzard town and take a right, to the house in between the buzzard town and the Hodunk Raceway. Behind the house is a Dahl Chest.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/OoJCx.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/O6HVe.jpg


Dahl Chest #7: Take your runner again and go to the Hodunk Raceway. Follow the track until you get to a set of stairs. Take it up and cross the stone arc to get to the area where the Pyrotech was during one of the Clan War missions. Behind him is a Dahl Chest that's difficult to miss since you need to get close enough to have it right in your face for the next part of the mission to activate.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/Wkg59.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/pj9Sb.jpg


Dahl Chest #8: Take your runner and head all the way west towards the Lynchwood and Highlands transition points. Along the way is an area called Moonshiner's Shack. There is a Dahl Chest here out in the open, that seems unguarded until you open it, at which point bandits will come out of the houses and attack. Just run in quickly, take everything, and run to make it quick.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/6I48l.jpg

Dahl Chest #9: Head to the Lynchwood Train Station. Underneathe the left platform is a Dahl Chest.

Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/NYp5M.jpg


Dahl Chest #2: Head a little farther into the stronghold but not into the next room, and take a left. In the room you will find a Badass Psycho or Nomad, usually a Nomad, and a fuse box. Destroy it, and head back to where you saw the electrical fence when you entered the previous room. It is now open. In the room after the whirpool room, behind the electrical fence.

White Chest #1: Head into the next room with the floor that's flooded with water and connected to the next room by a destroyed wall. Climb the structure on your right by climbing the ladder and you'll reach a white chest. Flooded room connected to the next by a destroyed wall. On top of the structure on your right, reached by a ladder.

Dahl Chest #4: Turn around and you will notice some pipes extended across the room. Jump on them and follow them to a room that unlocks all the jail cells. There is a vault symbol on the wall to your right. Just unlock the C4 Jail Cell as the others contain nothing of interest. Inside the jail cell is a Dahl Chest. Inside a jail cell opened by getting to a hidden room to unlock it.

Tundra Express:


The first guide I'll be doing that's a bit difficult to make a guide for because of its massiveness and general convolution of the areas. There are a small amount of chests spread around through the map so I wouldn't recommend it for farming, but when you visit, it doesn't hurt to know where the chests are, does it? I'll be using a lot of compass directions in this guide, so make sure you know North, South, East, and West, okay?

Here you can find a map with the locations of all the treasure chests courtesy of m0880ss.


White Chest #1: Starting from the normal Fast Travel Station (not the Farmhouse if you have that unlocked) head out into the field and past Varkid Ranch to the Varkid Ranch observatory. You will see a ladder Climb it, and at the top is a white chest. While you are up here, look to the right of the white chest to see one of the Vault Symbols on the ground.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/d09Mz.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/zIEp2.jpg


Red Chest #1: Walk over to the vault symbol and look right into the window. You will see an electrical fuse box. Shoot it, and then jump down the west end of the building. Turn around and enter the building, making your way up fighting some bandits and at the very top is a red chest.


Fuse Box: http://i.imgur.com/WzaXy.jpg

Red Chest #2: Head West and through the snowy area to the spiral ramp you take to go to Madame Von Bartlesby. Instead of starting to go right and up the ramp, go forward and jump off the cliff. Gearbox hid another chest down a cliff.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/93X7V.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/mTudf.jpg


Outhouse #1: Head West over to the Buzzard Academy. Make your way to the top where two of the Buzzard Launching pads are. Against the building where you find Tina's second "badonkadonk" is an Outhouse.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/CjMr5.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/nVV7i.jpg


Outhouse #2: Turn around and head to the buzzard pad next to the one you were at. Turn around and jump to the roof with the boxes on it. Jump to it, jump on the boxes and then up the roof. Jump to the roof on your left and there is an outhouse. This is on the very tip-top of the Buzzard Academy. You should be able to look up and see the outhouse from some places so if that helps, use it to figure out which building.

White Chest #2: Head north over to the train station where you robbed the train after the mining mission. On the second level on the station is a white chest.

White Chest #3: Head all the way over to the mining/digging site at the far east of the map. Fight the bandits on ground level if you wish, but jump onto the shipping container and make your way up the conveyor belt to where Prospector Zeke is. Kill him and his guys or ignore him and take the loot from the white chest in the area.

Wildlife Exploitation Preserve:


This area is pretty big but chests are spread far apart.


Hyperion Chest #1: Head through the preserve, pass the gate and go up the stairs after passing the dock. Look to your left for some containers stacked for you to jump on and jump up. A fuse box is in plain sight. Destroy it, then jump down and turn around to see the forcefield is gone. Hyperion Chest here.

Hyperion Chest #2: Exit the building and continue all the way to the next area with the entrance to the Creature Slaughter Dome/Natural Selection Annex. Don't enter the building, turn right and climb the stone arc onto the overpass. Head right until you reach the end then jump to the mushroom to your right and then to the cliff. This is one of Mordecai's secret stashes and has a Hyperion Chest in it.

Lynchwood


Outhouse #1: From the fast travel station, head towards the arena where you fight Dukino's Mom and go up the elevator (not down and into the arena). Walk forward until you find a building on your left, with a New-U Station. There is a ladder here on the New-U side which if you take up will take you to an Outhouse.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/fdm82.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/RgOdm.jpg


Outhouse #2: Go back and head up the ramp on your left towards Mad Dog and the station where you set off the explosives in the timed mission. Go up said ramp and just walk forward. Around the corner is an outhouse tucked into the corner. Pretty good hiding spot.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/D4zF6.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/ZmIDr.jpg


Trunk #1: Head towards the building with the stairs that take you up to the place where you detonate the explosives. Instead of heading up the stairs, on your right under the building is a trunk that is in pretty clear vision if you're looking for it.

Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/MiCNI.jpg


Trunk #2: Keep heading in the same direction until you reach a sort of fork, one continuing on "ground level" and the other being a hill leading up to a building. Up the stairs of this building is a trunk.

Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/32474.jpg


Outhouse #5: Backtrack all the way to the bandit town, (the first bandit town, the area you walk out into at the start off) and in the north part of the town is a building with an outhouse on it. These are very vague directions, I know, but hopefully when screenshots come around that will help out. There aren't really many landmarks to use here.


Chest Picture: http://i.imgur.com/6NJlL.jpg
Map Location: http://i.imgur.com/UMCAE.jpg


Outhouse #6: Head into the second bandit town, the town that you battle the Sheriff in. Watch your left for a car, once you reach the car, head around the corner, and, while you're here, there is a bus station-like structure with a fuse box. Destroy it. Turn right and climb the ladder and on your immediate right is an outhouse.

Outhouse #8: Make your way to the elevator, but also note on your left is a weapons vendor you might not want to miss, and on your right inside of the car is one of Axton's logs. Take the elevator up and on your immediate right is an outhouse that is difficult to miss.

Thousand Cuts:


This area has a lot of chests and is pretty good for some late game farming after you've completed Where Angels Fear to Tread. Don't quit after going through this area, go to the Bunker and finish up the farming session there.

Here you can find a map with the locations of all the treasure chests courtesy of m0880ss.


White Chest #1: If you have the waypoint to go to Terramporhus' Lair, use it. Jump down to the entrance to his lair and in the cave with the entrance is a white chest guarded by some bandits.

White Chest #3: While crossing the bridge to the Slab King's throne room, head right but keep looking down. There should be a small gap between some metal grating and the actual cliff face, from which you will spot a white chest. Either carefully jump down or take the safe ladder down to it.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Outhouse #2: Head to the Slab King's throne room, but don't enter, simply keep heading forward and behind the last pillar is an outhouse.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Red Chest #1: Enter the Slab King's throne room. Go upstairs by entering the left room and going up the stairs, and past his throne is a red chest on top of a crate.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


White Chest #3: From here, continue on to the elevator. Raise the elevator, but don't go up. Instead jump off after raising it and fall under the elevator platform. There is a fuse box here. Destroy it, jump out, call the elevator again and take it up. The electric gate will be down and the white chest is yours for the taking.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Outhouse #3: Jump down, and go up the second building on your right. There is an outhouse here.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


========================[ Any chests below this point are unobtainable until the main quest "Where Angels Fear to Tread" ]========================


Hyperion Locker #1: Start heading up the hill where the battle with the loaders and such take place. Eventually on your right you should see a small area with a Hyperion Locker and some ammo containers.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #2: Keep moving forward until you have to make a turn for the first time. Along the wall on the right (after turning) is a Hyperion Locker that you shouldn't be able to miss if you're looking for it.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #3: After entering the fort and going up the second set of stairs, ahead next to several ammo crates is a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #4: Behind one of the shipping crates behind the Badass Constructor is a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #5: Go up the stairs and walk along the narrow edge of the building to your right and around the building. On the other side of the building is a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #6: Jump down or go back around and then around the corner and up the stairs. Against the building on your right is a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Chest #1: Turn around and at the end of this area is a Hyperion Chest.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #4: Right next to the last chest is another Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


The Bunker:


Hyperion Chest #1: At the very top, up the several sets of stairs the Bunker was blocking before it went airborne, is a Hyperion Chest covered in vines.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Chest #2: From right here, jump onto the fence and jump to the level below. Of course, watch where you jump. Turn around and there is a room below the bridge/path leading to the previous chest containing a Hyperion Chest and some ammo crates.

Map Location:


Arid Nexus Boneyard:

JUST LISTEN TO DAT' MUSIC. HOLY HELL


Hyperion Locker #1: Head north to the Hyperion Gas Station. Inside the building on your left should be a Hyperion Locker if entered from the south entrance.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Red Chest #1: Head northeast to the broken pipeline and follow it up to the transition point to the Badlands. Look around for a hole in the ground and go down it. Follow the pipe to the end and you will find a Red Chest.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #2: Head southeast towards the small gas station with the underground area. Take the elevator down and follow it to the end. In the far right corner there should be a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Chest #1: Turn around and hug the wall on the right. Follow the narrow ledge until you reach a pretty well-hidden room. Inside is a Hyperion Chest. This is probably the only chest in the area worth checking.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #3: Exit the gas station, take your runner and head south to the next building. This is the building right next to where you fought the Skrakk. Head up the stairs and you will find a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #4: Head southwest to the next gas station. It is the largest one and has the catch-a-ride. Enter via the catch-a-ride side and go through the area. Eventually on your left should be a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Arid Nexus Badlands:

You remember this place from Borderlands 1, right? Too bad it's restricted to Fyrestone and not the rest of the Badlands.


White Chest #1: Start from the Fast Travel station and head to Bonehead's former camp. Kill Bonehead 2.0 and walk over to the building in the back. Inside is a White Chest.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Red Chest #1: Exit into Fyrestone by turning around and taking a left through the slag puddle. Take a right and you will notice a makeshift wall with arrows on it pointing up and left. This tells you where to jump to get up to the cliff. Follow the directions and jump to the cliff. Here you will find the hidden claptrap from the first game that you weren't intended to get to, now dead, with a Red Chest beside it. Poor claptrap.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Red Chest #2: This is the chest you need to open for the achievement, the first chest in Borderlands 1. Head over to Saturn and get onto the Gas Station by going behind it and climbing the rail, to the low roof and then to the roof. Against a dumpster is the Red Chest.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #1: Defeat Saturn and head up to the highway. Get to the Hyperion Info Stockade and get to the third floor. Against the wall are two Hyperion Lockers.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #2: Right next to the last one.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Chest #1: Look around on this floor for a ladder. Take it up and there should be a chest right in front of you.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Red Chest #3:Head back towards the highway and keep watching the right for a tower with a fuse box. Either just shoot it and jump down or jump to it and melee it, or whatever, just destroy it. (this is the intended way, not shooting from the gas station) Jump down and head to Dr. Zed's. The forcefield should be down and you can take the Red Chest here.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hero's Pass

I figured I'd do a guide for this area since it's fairly linear and should be easy to provide directions for and it leads up to the Warrior which is a popular place for farming, so knowing where the chests are here would help those who farm the Warrior.


Hyperion Locker #1: After crossing the bridge, around the corner behind the large yellow construction device thing is a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #2: Cross the next bridge and notice the cliff face to your right. Walk along it until you see an electrical fuse box on the back of one of the pillars. Shoot/melee it and then go back to the electrical gate that you saw at the beginning. Behind it is a now-free-for-the-taking Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #3: Cross the two bridge and jump the gap. Go up the stairs and on your right there should be a Hyperion Locker.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Locker #4: Right near the end, when you reach that large area with the Super Badass Constructor, don't go down the stairs towards it but head to the right and around the perimeter of the area. You'll reach a Hyperion Locker next to two ammo crates.


Chest Picture:
Map Location:


Hyperion Chest #1: Very difficult to miss. Placed right at the end of the area plainly in sight.

great to see another guide from ya. can't wait for your complete farming guide

you might want to include vault icon locations as well

Outhouse #1: there is also a path that takes you all the way too the big boat. it starts to the right after crossing the bridge


Trunk #2: from my experience two badass marauders always spawn here

I find this interesting.

I used your guides to learn the good farm spots in BL1, and I'll probably do again for BL2 if you write a complete guide.. once your facemelting needs are done ofcause

That'll take quite a while... Some of the areas are huge and I might even have to use other guides to find their locations.

Also, when I went up there in PT1 for the first time they spawned, but the time I went there to check for chests they didn't spawn. I even waited for them and nothing.

Good stuff Ice. You should probably do Thousand Cuts and Spoiler: BNK3R's area next. I know of 10 chests you can grab on the way to him, and then the boss' loot too. I've had a lot of success farming that area since I hit PT2.5 yesterday.
