Destiny 2 – Cayde-6 Treasure Maps for the EDZ on Earth

That Cayde-6 is a funny Hunter, always hiding things for future use. You’ll remember there was an entire mission built around this in The Taken King of Destiny, and now he’s done it again in Destiny 2. This time, though, Cayde-6 has decided to hide several treasures around the various planets. Each week he will sell Guardians five Treasure Maps that can be used to mark the location of a chest. This week, each of the six treasures are found in the European Dead Zone (EDZ) on Earth.

Cayde-6 EDZ/Earth Treasure Maps

For the first cache, spawn at the Sludge on Earth. You will then head along the river toward the Dark Forest. The cache is literally in the river, so you should have no trouble spotting it as you go.

The second cache is found along the winding road that connects the Sludge and the Gulch. You could spawn in at either location, then head toward the other. When you see some buildings high above the road, climb up and snag this cache.

Your third cache is found by spawning on Earth near Devrim Kay. Outside his building is a road that will take you toward Maevic Square. Search the bombed-out buildings and you’ll find this chest on one of the upper levels.

The next cache can also be found by spawning on Earth next to Devrim Kay. Head for the Outskirts on your Sparrow and cross the bridge to get to Sojourner’s Camp. There is truck about to fall off a cliff, and the cache is near the cab of the truck.

Spawn at the Sludge to find your next cache. From there, head toward the Outskirts along the winding road. As you get close to the Outskirts you’ll find the cache sitting on top of a small rock just off the left side of the road.

That’s it for all the Treasure Maps in the European Dead Zone (EDZ) on Earth. Be sure to visit our Destiny 2 complete strategy guide for more help getting your Guardian to max Power.

Destiny 2 guide: Cayde-6 Titan chest locations, Oct. 17-23, 2017

Each week, Cayde-6 will sell you some treasure maps for the Flashpoint location. From Oct. 17-23, 2107, Cayde-6’s chests will be located on Titan.

After the weekly reset, run down to the hanger and meet with Cayde-6. Each map will cost you 4,800 glimmer and will appear in your inventory. If you look at the planet in question, you will see several spade icons all over the map.

It is worth noting that you only want to get two or three chests at once. Getting all five in a row can result in no loot in the final two. Grab three, do something else, and come back in about 10 minutes. Time to go exploring, Guardian.

Chest 1

“So I chased the gang of Awoken thieves up to the Arcology. That bridge didn’t look too stable, and I’m not into methane baths, so I stashed what I had and picked up their trail inside” — Cayde-6

Drop onto the Rig and make your way left toward the Solarium. Go down the ramp, through the room to your left and onto the broken bridge. Instead of crossing the bridge over to the Solarium proper, turn and look at the great gate to your right. The Cayde-6 chest will be nestled in next to some crates.

Chest 2

“This one is in some kind of wall. What was it with the Golden Age that they build walls around everything?” — Cayde-6

Spawn onto the Rig and make your way left toward the Solarium. Jump across the broken bridge and up the scaffolding on the left. Run up the stairs and defeat the Hive in the back part of the Solarium. Run all the way to the end of the Hive area, and there will be a Cayde-6 chest just sitting there. Grab it.

Chest 3

“You know what I used to love about my rest stops on Titan? Walking into the Arcology and thinking about it in its heyday. But then you get to thinking of much we actually lost, and now the Hive just spawning everywhere … and the will to fight boils right back up.” — Cayde-6

Spawn onto the Rig and make your way left toward the Solarium. Jump across the broken bridge and up the scaffolding on the left. Run up the stairs and defeat the Hive in the back part of the Solarium. Turn right and go through the broken solar paneling. Walk into the Solarium and turn right once you reach the grass. Walk up the hill and open the Cayde-6 chest.

Chest 4

“And just to amuse myself I would find natural x’s in any environment and stash something somewhere beneath them, just to be able to say those words to myself … ‘X marks the spot.’” — Cayde-6

Make your way to the Solarium just like you did with Chests 2 and 3. Once you pass through the shattered solar panel, walk into the Solarium and take the door on your far right. Follow the winding path until you encounter some Hive in a courtyard. Look across the way to see the familiar glow of a Cayde-6 chest. Defeat the Hive and platform your way onto the balcony to receive some treasure.

Chest 5

“Mapping these pings to the latest from Sloane, looks like you’ll be tearing through some kind of ceiling garden. Good luck with that.” — Cayde-6

Make your way to the Solarium just like you did with Chests 2 and 3. Once you pass through the shattered solar panel, walk into the Solarium and take the door on your left. Walk the path through the green room and toward the Arboretum. In the hallway before the blue room, look up to see a lush garden in the ceiling. Walk forward and jump onto the ledge. Turn to your right and you will see the Cayde-6 chest tucked in between some plants.

Destiny 2 guide: Cayde-6 Nessus chest locations, Oct. 10-16

Each week, Cayde-6 will sell you treasure maps for the Flashpoint location. From Oct. 10-16, Cayde-6’s chests are located on Nessus.

After the weekly reset, run down to the hanger and meet with Cayde-6. Each map will cost you 4,800 glimmer and will appear in your inventory after you purchase it. If you look at the planet in question, you’ll see several spade icons all over the area. Those are the chests.

It’s worth noting that you only want to get two or three chests at once. Getting all five in a row can result in no loot in the final two. Grab three, do something else and come back in about 10 minutes. Time to go exploring, Guardian.

Chest 1

“Thought I’d escaped, but you know how the Vex are. I got as far as this energy shield, thinking it was a way out. Dead end. So I dropped what I had there and tried to shoot through. Bam! Right back into the loop.” — Cayde-6

Drop into the Exodus Black area and hop on your Sparrow. Roll north until you reach a small alcove. Climb a few rocks and enter the space. Follow the hallway as it twists and turns. Eventually, you’ll reach a dead end, capped with an energy shield, a weird floating rock and Cayde-6’s chest. Grab your loot.

Chest 2

“I had no choice. Once I saw the floating rocks, there was no way I was going to weigh myself down with extra gear. I was Lightless after all, remember?” — Cayde-6

Make your way to the Hallows however you choose. Once you are in the cave, surrounded by Vex, go east through the opening with the red glow. Follow the path until you reach the Sunken Cavern. Once you emerge from the cave, look across the great open space to spot the chest sitting on a ledge. Platform your way across the rocks until you reach the treasure.

Chest 3

“So there I was, two choices: I could’ve tried climbing the red ivy, or just jump. What do you think I did?” — Cayde-6

Make your way to the Hallows however you choose. Pass through the Vex caves and take the southern path. Roll along the road until you see sunlight. When the path twists left, jump off your Sparrow and onto the lip of the Vex-made cliff face. Your treasure should be right next to you.

Chest 4

“So this cache … I don’t know. It seemed like a good idea at the time. How do you feel about climbing trees?” — Cayde-6.

Drop in at the Watcher’s Grave and follow the road forward. After only a few seconds, you’ll see a massive tree on your right. The chest is sitting on its northernmost branch, which hangs parallel to the ground. Jump up the back wall to climb the tree and reach the treasure.

Chest 5

“I was just doing what Failsafe said. I mean, she seems reliable, half the time. So I entered this cave and set up my little fallback point, took a few steps in, and bam, the battle began.” — Cayde-6

Drop into Artifact’s Edge and head west toward the Tangle. Once you are in the area, push forward until you find the massive crevice that leads into a small pond below. Jump in. At the bottom, look for a small cave opening with orange lights around it. Enter the cave and hang right. You should walk right into Cayde’s final chest.

Destiny 2 guide: Cayde-6 Io chest locations, Sept. 26 – Oct. 2

Each week, Cayde-6 will sell you treasure maps for the Flashpoint location. From Sept. 26 – Oct. 2, Cayde-6’s chests are located on Io.

After the weekly reset, run down to the hanger and meet with Cayde-6. Each map will cost you 4,800 glimmer and will appear in your inventory after you purchase it. If you look at the planet in question, you’ll see several spade icons all over the area. Those are the chests.

It’s worth noting that you only want to get two or three chests at once. Getting all five in a row can result in no loot in the final two. Grab three, do something else and come back in about 10 minutes. Time to go exploring, Guardian.

Chest 1

“Gotta love the views on Io. I remember watching Jupiter gloat over the horizon, all big and stormy. I left a cache up there, and… fell asleep. Next thing I know, my Ghost’s reviving me at the base of the cliff. Guess I roll around in my sleep.” — Cayde-6

Drop into the Lost Oasis and turn right. Follow the road until you find yourself in a gulch, surrounded by rocks. Continue going forward until you reach a giant chasm in front of you. You should now be on top of the Cayde-6 icon. Look over the edge and jump down to a small lip. Claim your chest.

Chest 2

“Do me a favor and just look into that Pyramidion thing, would you? If the Vex are studying the best of humanity, you know they’ve got stuff on me in there.” — Cayde-6

Land by Asher in the Rupture. Make your way over to the Pyramidion and face the dungeon head on. Run along the left side, following the road. At the end, you’ll find a small alcove. Head into the alcove to find the chest.

Chest 3

“The lead I got from Asher was some Psion was seen making off with this somewhere in the Echo Mesa. He mumbled something about it being on top of some Cabal checkpoint, before it — well — fell into a pit of Taken. And we all know how that turns out.” — Cayde-6

Drop back into Lost Oasis. Jump on your Sparrow and head toward Giant’s Scar by way of the big gate. After passing through the gate, continue along the path until you reach two small barricades on the left and right sides of the road. Jump off your Sparrow and hop onto the top of the left barricade. Grab the chest.

Chest 4

“You ever talk to Banshee much? He’s got this saying: Sometime the deeper you go, the less you’ll ever understand. The Cabal are kind of like that. Why they feel the need to drag my stuff into their damn Io base… beyond me.” — Cayde-6.

Land in Giant’s Scar and make your way forward, into Excavation Site II. Once you’re in the base, walk through the hall into the large room. Ignore the Taken enemies and run up the ramp. Once you reach the top, ignore the enemies yet again and take the second ramp. In this third room, look toward the back and find the window. Sitting next to the window will be Cayde-6’s fourth Io chest.

Chest 5

“So word is one of the Cabal’s drill engineers found another one of my caches. I don’t know if I did such a good job sealing it or if those dumb rhino fingers are too fat to pry it open. Anyway, it’s been spotted in some hole near that drill site. I guess Ghaul called them back before they could get into it.” — Cayde-6.

For the final Io chest, land in Lost Oasis and roll north into the Terrabase Charon. Head forward and then jump off of your Sparrow. Jump to the l eft and enter the bunker with the green flag hanging above the door.

Follow the hallways down into the mine. Once you are in the Wraith Mines, look for the giant drill in the center of the room. Run past it and jump up to the scaffolding on the right. Turn around, facing the drill and jump over to more scaffolding in front of you. Jump off of the scaffolding onto the rocks on the right. Here you’ll find the fifth chest.

Here’s how we’re numbering Cayde-6’s chests in this guide
Bungie/Activision

Chest 1

“Getting pings on another one somewhere high up in one of those towers. From what I hear, the Fallen are using those towers as some kind of junkyard. Could be like a needle in a haystack. Good luck.” — Cayde-6

The first chest on Titan is between Siren’s Watch and the Rig. Travel down to the Rig and head right from the landing point. Run through the first cylinder on the bridge and move over to the second (the 01 silo). The Cayde-6 chest will be sitting just to your left after entering 01.

Chest 2

“Reef Awoken are weird like that. She assured me it was a gold mine, so I went exploring. Check near some kind of generator machine thing, there should be one I haven’t hit in years.” — Cayde-6.

From the Rig spawn point, run forward and take a left when you get to the large bridge and open area. Head through the underpass and look down once you get to the other side. From here, you can see the chest glowing next to some pipes. Jump down and shimmy your way along the small walkway to grab the loot.

Chest 3

“I take it you like to jump, right? I see the way you jump around the Tower. Guardians these days — no respect for gravity.” — Cayde-6.

Spawn onto the Rig and start making your way forward. Once you reach the bridge and wide open space, cross the bridge and into the Hive-infested area. Run up the steps and look across the way to see the glowing Cayde-6 chest. Jump across and open it.

Chest 4

“This one is in some kind of wall. What was it with the Golden Age that they build walls around everything?” — Cayde-6

Spawn onto the Rig and make your way left toward the Solarium. Jump across the broken bridge and up the scaffolding on the left. Run up the stairs and defeat the Hive in the back part of the Solarium. Run all the way to the end of the Hive area, and there will be a Cayde-6 chest just sitting there. Grab it.

Chest 5

“You know what I used to love about my rest stops on Titan? Walking into the Arcology and thinking about it in its heyday. But then you get to thinking of much we actually lost, and now the Hive just spawning everywhere… and the will to fight boils right back up.” — Cayde-6

Spawn onto the Rig and make your way left toward the Solarium. Jump across the broken bridge and up the scaffolding on the left. Run up the stairs and defeat the Hive in the back part of the Solarium. Turn right and go through the broken solar paneling. Walk into the Solarium and turn right once you reach the grass. Walk up the hill and open the final Cayde-6 chest.
