One of the first thing you should do as you land is to search for chests.
Chests are found in many spots around the map and can be searched for loot.
They can be found indoors (inside Houses and other buildings) and outdoors.
Chests can have high quality loot.
Some rarer items can only be found in chests and not as Ground Loot.
- If you land in a town where noone else landed you can raid all the chests and end up with superior equipment.
- Learn all spots where chests can appear. While chests will appear randomly they will always appear in the same locations so become familiar with the map and learn all possible chest spots. For example if you find a chest in the attic of a specific house, always check that spot when you are in that area as it has a chance to spawn there every time you play.
