Head's up! This guide may contain spoilers though we've tried to avoid them. Also, many of the chest have pictures where they are opened so you can get an idea of what level gear they contain. This was done on playthrough 1 in most cases.

[edit] 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.

[edit] White Chest #1

At the bandit structure just before you get to ===Outhouse #1===. After you've put the fuse in the elevator for the mission "Shielded Favors", ride the elevator up and enter the room at the top. Exit through the backdoor. Directly above you is a chest. Turn around and face the building. On the left side of the building is a cat walk. Walk up it and jump onto the roof. Then walk back towards the backdoor and look over the edge of the roof. There is a place to drop down where the chest is. You can also turn around on the cat walk and jump directly to the chest. Either way you go the jump can be tricky.

[edit] 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.

After getting outhouse 4, you head out of this little cove with all the bandits and toilets and so forth, and start heading up the ramp towards Flynt. BUT before you turn around the bend turn backwards. You can jump into the room ABOVE outhouse #4 that you just fought in. Go to the far end and you'll see that if you make several jumps you can get to the other end. There is a white chest along with a cult of the vault symbol!

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] Three Horns Divide

After you defeat Captain Flynt in Southern Bay, you take Claptrap's ship to Three Horns Divide!

[edit] White Chest #1

In the main story quest, you will have to enter the bandit camp (Fishguts camp?) near the Catch a ride station. On the far left side, out on a dock is a white chesst.

[edit] Outhouse #1

After getting white chest 1, look in the direction of where you pick up the adapter for the main story quest (to get the catch-a-ride working). If you climb up some snow just past/behind the camp, there is a very well hidden outhouse. Usually has slightly higher level gear.

Now that you have the catch-a-ride, you jump over the bridge that got bombed as you walked into the area. Usually after you jump this, you go through the icy tunnel caves (Ice Fields or something?). Instead, just go forward towards the pipes and so forth. You can climb your way on top for a white chest!

On your way from Sanctuary to find corporal Reiss (or more accurately, the echo recorder he dropped), you will pass a small encampment built into the cliffs on the right. Go in and waste the enemies and eventually a badass or some enemy will come out of the highest hut. Inside is a white chest!

Next with the main story quest, you will have to find Corporal Reiss in the Marrowfields and kill his 3 attackers. Normally, you'd just leave to go find the power core but instead, just go a little farther past and you can climb your way up to another white chest!

Next, when you actually go to find the power core in the big bandit camp, you may notice a trunk at the top of the camp. You can climb up the left or right stairs to get to it. It's not particularly challenging except that you may need to fight off all the bandits to get to it.

Later on, you'll have to get to Frostburn Canyon as part of the main story. But if you just walk past it (and kill some Bullymongs), you'll find another white chest. It is perhaps worth noting that this is above (looking down on) white chest #2!

Between the entrance to Frostburn Canyon and chest #6, you can jump across the chasm into the icy tunnels you drove through earlier. There is a teeny tiny bandit camp, and if you kill them, you can have their white chest. SCORE. (It is perhaps worth noting that if you go behind their camp a little further, you could jump down to white chest #4.)

Okay, the map on this are always confused the heck out of me. So. I'll try to use a lot of pictures. But honestly, this area sucks, you'll have to hunt around if you want them! (Or go watch a Youtube video and just check here to see if they missed any.)

[edit] White Chest #1

Okay as you spawn in the area you'll pass some vending machines. For the main story you'd normally go right...but for our first chest, you're going to go left (which puts you going uphill at some bandits). Waste the bandits and keep going and you'll find this kind of frozen lake area. Go past that and you'll find "Frozen Ant Lake" or some shit like that. I think there is some quest here involving a Spycho later in the game? Anyway, turn to your left and you'll see some giant stair apparatus type....thing. There is a chest underneath.

Go up the stairs you found white chest #1 underneath. You'll see an electrified hut with red chest #1 coming up in a second. To get this red chest, you'll need to shut off a fuse box and we'll find white chest #2 along the way. So basically, as you're looking at the hut turn to the right and find the little bridge thing and our chest is pretty obvious!

Okay so going back to when we spawn in by the vending machines...this time instead of going left, head right like you would for the main story. There's obviously that GIANT bandit camp. Maybe sometimes you just fight the entrance and go to the cave to follow the Bloodshot signs? Not today son! Fight all the way to the back for a couple chests. One is on top of building (you can find a ladder inside to get to it.)

Right next to this is a very easy to miss tunnel leading to a vault symbol and white chest 5! You can see white chest chest 3 in the distance, as this is actually just above the last bandit camp.

After learning something from the Firehawk, you'll want to get to the Bloodshot Stronghold which means going through Three Horns Valley. (There are two entrances to this area from Three Horns Divide.)

[edit] White Chest #1

The entrance to Southpaw Steam and Power has a chest. The safest way to get it starts from just outside the entrance. Instead of walking inside, climb up some boxes to a big ladder. Climb the ladder and you'll be on a walkway on top of the rim of the encampment. Walk around and pretty soon you'll see the white chest below!

You COULD walk around and get to it via some stairs, but why not be SO PRO and climb the rocks and ledge to get it before you encounter any bandits?

After the second assassin, to the right of the New-U Respawn station is a pipe coming down from the ceiling. Jump onto it and follow it to the right. On the top of a structure will be the red chest.

[edit] The Dust

The chests are so spread out here. It's a big area. Also, the open chest pictures show everything at level 31 so I'm guessing that these chests actually scale quite a bit with your level since you pass through this area so much in the main story quest. When you first come in, I'd bet they're closer to level 11-14 ish.

[edit] White Chest #1

Go behind Ellie's Garage. Follow the path all the way to the end and you'll find an area where the bandits and spiderants are fighting. The third building at the top of the hill has a Dahl chest leaning next to it.

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. In the first open area INSIDE the buzzard camp, there is a white chest up some stairs.

Caravan chest! You probably already know about this one as the guy ANNOUNCES it loudly, but the wiki page is below for more info, which may help you find it.

The first two outhouses and red chest are only available if you have taken the teenage mutant ninja turtle quest thing. Basically you go from the spawn room with the vendors, through the next room, and in the NEXT room you have to drop down to the sewer to enter the TMNT area which is closed unless you pick up the quest. This first outhouse is basically in the first room after the save point/New-U station and is impossible to miss.

[edit] 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?

[edit] 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.

Turn around and enter the building (this was previously electrified...it looks kind of a like a cave in the rockface and has a yellow sign above it), making your way up fighting some bandits and at the very top is a red chest.

Gearbox hid another chest down a cliff. It's almost off the map area so the towers will threaten to shoot you. (You can also get to this by following the train tracks). The chest is not visible in the area overview but you just drop down to that flat rockface by the water and its in the corner.

This chest is really hard to miss. From the entrance to where you leave for the main story to The Highlands Outwash, it's a pretty straight open path. Follow this path and you'll see a white chest on a concrete overhang just below all the crystallisks on the icy floor below.

[edit] 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.

[edit] Trunk #3

In the garage of the Sheriff's building a little further up is a trunk.

[edit] Outhouse #7

Continue through the town and watch your left for an outhouse on a station that is pretty much in plain site. Shouldn't be difficult to miss.

[edit] 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.

[edit] Trunk #4

After going up the elevator, head out and around the back. There is a trunk against the building that is blocked off by an electric fence if you didn't destroy the fuse box earlier.

[edit] Outhouse #9

Turn around, and look at the building on your far left. Farthest to your left is a set of stairs. Underneath these stairs is an outhouse.

[edit] Thousand Cuts BEFORE "Where Angels Fear to Tread"

When you first visit Thousand Cuts, you can't get past No Man's Land because of Hyperion's large red competitor deterrence field (aka Death Wall). I'll give the chests past the death wall in a later section. I've tried to put these chest in an order so that you pick up as many chests as possible before the initiation fight with the Slabs to make it a little easier, although some may be slightly easier to find on the way back if you want to wait.

[edit] Outhouse #1

If you go to the far left into No Man's land, the 2nd building on the far right has an outhouse on the 2nd floor.

[edit] White Chest #1

You'll need to go to the entrance to Terramorphous' lair to find this. There are two paths you can take the entrance. Go to the left and jump down (faster) or go to the right and follow the bright arrow down the normal stair path (slower but easier to find). This tends to have slightly higher level gear in it.

Near the first mortar beacon on the right is a pretty arrow (if you face toward the entrance anyway)! Follow the arrow up the stairs! There is an easy to miss staircase down to this outhouse on the left.

At the beginning of the bridge toward the slab king's place is an outhouse. You'll find it on your left as you face the slab king's place.

[edit] White Chest #3

At the end of the bridge toward the Slab King's place to the right is a ledge with a white chest. Be careful not to fall off! If memory serves, this has slightly higher level gear in it.

[edit] White Chest #4

By Shooty McFace guy or whatever just outside of the Slab King's place, you can follow a path down to an elevator. The elevator leads up to an electrified white chest. So before you go up there, send the elevator up and shoot the fuse box that was hiding below it. Then call the elevator back down, ride it up and get the chest!

[edit] Red Chest #1

This is the chest you find up by the Slab King after the long initiation fight. You CAN wait until the end of the fight and use the stairs. Or you could do some fancy (easy) jumps to get there ASAP. Basically go in straight ahead and find the comp on the back. Jump on railing, jump on monitor, jump on the white thing on the wall, jump on the stripey pipe, then jump up to the slab king and the chest!

[edit] Red Chest #2

Climb up to the entrance to the Slab King's area. But instead of going inside, you'll go to the far end and climb a wire all the way to the top of the bridge. Walk all the way across the highest part of the bridge and when you get to the far corner, jump across to a red chest.

[edit] Opportunity

[edit] Red Chest #1

Head to the far left to the area where you pick up the friendly constructor to laser down the statues for that one side quest thing. Out where the Badass Constructor spawns is a red chest.

Go past the tower, past the sandy construction site, just pass where you blow up the dam in the side mission. In a pit you'll find an elevator across from a red chest sealed in blue lasers. From across the pit (or by riding the elevator if you like being slow), shoot the fuse box to open the cell.

This one is ONLY available doing the main story quest. After you collect the four voice samples, you give them to angel and pick up the voice modulator. In this room, you'll find a red chest.

[edit] Red Chest #4

So I know this is lame, but I couldn't find this chest but I saw it on YouTube. :-/ At the opposite end of the map from where you start is a long outstretch with a crane. I believe it becomes available with the Home Movies quest? Maybe?

In the side quest Home Movies, you upload the movies in this room. Just outside the room is a locker.

[edit] Red Chest #5

INSIDE the room for the Home Movies quest is a red chest. You MUST have that side quest for the room to open.

See map on hl5 above.

[edit] Red Chest #6

I put this one last because its a pain in the ass. It can spawn on one of three rooftops, so you may need to check all three. But it IS a red chest, so maybe its worth it :P

First possible location is basically the 2nd building from spawn on the roof. Jump on a hedge up to the location. Second possible location is on the next roof a little farther to the left, above the Living Legend Plaza. Third location is on a roof near the other end of the map, closer to that long dock like outstretching thing. Just...use the map and pictures really.

[edit] Thousand Cuts AFTER "Where Angels Fear to Tread"

[edit] Hyperion Locker #1

Start heading up the hill where the battle with the loaders and such take place. On the right is a locker (halfway between the death wall and where you fight the constructor).

After you kill the constructor the door on the left opens up and a few hyperion soldier jerk types come out. On the right side of this doorway as you face the mortars is a locker.

Behind one of the shipping crates near the Badass Constructor is a Hyperion Locker. This one is easy to miss so make sure you go to the edge of the platform and grab it!

[edit] Hyperion Locker #5 & #6 and Red Chest #1

After you kill the badass constructor, a gate will open at the top of the stairs. Go up these stairs and instead of going straight to the entrance to Bunker, turn right to find an area with two lockers and a red chest. People tend not to miss this much but make sure you don't run right past it!

[edit] Red Chest #1

From right here, jump onto the fence and jump to the ring below. Of course, watch where you jump. Turn around and there is a room below the waterfall with the chest in it. This becomes unlocked when the bunker dies.

[edit] Hyperion Chest #3

From the room below, exit right on the outer ring, going back towards the Fast Travel Station. Look to the left at the first outcropping (the little hangie viney things off the side of teh ring). Jump out and at the end is a Hyperion Chest covered in vines.

[edit] Control Core Angel

After the fight in Control Core Angel, you'll be teleported to "Marcus Munitions Storeroom"....which is actually still on the Control Core Angel map. It's not worth posting pics but make sure you open all THREE red chests and the ONE white chest. (Along with all the random safes and ammo crap.)

[edit] Arid Nexus Boneyard

JUST LISTEN TO DAT' MUSIC. HOLY HELL

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

Map Location: (screenshot needed)

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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: (screenshot needed)
Map Location: (screenshot needed)

[edit] 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.

Map Location: (screenshot needed)

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

Map Location: (screenshot needed)

[edit] 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.

[edit] Hyperion Locker #1

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

Chest Picture: (screenshot needed)
Map Location: (screenshot needed)

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

Very difficult to miss. Placed right at the end of the area plainly in sight.

Also credit to MJ the Chemist - that's me! I know this is kind of self-aggrandizing but I want a virtual pat on the back to myself for working my ass off. I added a LOT of new/better pictures, tried to discuss the relative levels of the chests, made all the path pictures with the red arrows trying to give you a better idea of where everthing was. Anyway, cheers, hope it helps!
