Destiny 2 Nessus Region Chests Guide

A guide to all the Destiny 2 region chests located on Nessus

These chests can be only looted once per account (not per character) and will disappear off the map once you have looted them. They give tokens for that region’s reputation, glimmer currency and chance to give you relics for your character’s subclasses.

The chests and the map icons for them only appear once you have completed the story campaign for that area.

You can get to this chest either directly from chest #2 or just run to the general area from the landing zone. It is on a very tall pillar. You need to make some long distance/high jumps so it helps to have a character with high mobility or use the blink jump on your warlock character.

  • Lithril Ashwalker

    the chests are random depending on if you leave too far away this is for the cave in exodus

    • Jordan

      Actually the regional chests don’t move. They have a predetermined location on the map identified by the strange square symbol.

  • Maxime Boyer

    I really want to thank you for your help, some of those chests have been a pain in the ass to find.
