GW2 Chicken Scramble achievement guide

GW2 Chicken Scramble achievement guide with detailed walkthrough. Chicken Scramble is an explorer achievement introduced with the Halloween patch for an achievement obtainable in Bloodtide Coast, Queensdale, Gendarran Fields and Kessex Hills. This one involves opening chests in these zones to spawn Skritt burglars that will transform you into a chicken for this achievement. Like the other skritt burgler involving achievements, there isn’t one spot for the chest to spawn. Instead, there are a number of possible locations.


  • Press ctrl down while looking for these chests as it will highlight their names.
  • Best to do this with a friend so you can find the skritt burgler faster and reduce the waypoint costs
  • Do not use any pets/clones if possible as the skritt may transform your pet instead. This is especially a concern for rangers.
  • Focus on low damage attacks so you don’t kill the skritt burgler too quickly

I found another place where the skritt box is. It’s in Brisban Wildlands.
Unfortunately he didn’t turn me into anything. My friend says that you should NOT kill him and run after him untill he turn you into something. He said he got turned into animals two times. I’ll try this next time.

Regarding location 2: Two pictures showing the location of the chest and the path the skritt takes.

What I found during some trys on the chests introduced with the halloween patch:

1. I found that the skritt drops a total 5 small bags of loot (purple colored bags on the ground) at set amounts of hp left (they can contain rare items)

2. He will drop a bag of loot if you down him, containing 3 items of varying quality (never got more than masterwork quality here

3. He will at least try to transform you twice on his way and these transforms can miss – so do not blind him

I must add that skritt can take at least two different paths to run. I tried one box (Ascalon one) two times, and srit ran different way than before

I found a chest at the eastern location on the queensdale map, a skrit with loot jumped out but he provided no transform, he just dropped crappy loot bags until I killed him.

Just found another location for this chest in Bloodtide Coast. It spawns inside of Gleaner’s Archway, which is to the west of Bogside Camp. In my excitement I completely forgot to screenshot. My apologies!

idk if somone post this location before, i was in Queensdale killing some harpys and the chest respwn in front of me, and the skirt turned me into a chicken..

One in Snowden Drifts which gives you the achievement ‘Jackalopin Along’. This is an achievement in the line of Chicken Scramble, but features finding the chest/skritt thief in the Shiverpeak Mountain area’s (Norn).
