Imperial treasure maps are the new weekly bounties in Season of Opulence, but you’ll need to hunt for some golden chests to get your rewards.
You can pick up Imperial treasure map bounties from Werner 99-44 on Nessus or from Benedict 99-44 in the Tower. Each of these bounties requires you to find a treasure chest hidden in another destination.
If you track the quest, you’ll see an X marking the spot where you need to go for each location. It doesn’t show you exactly where you’ll find a chest in that area, so we’ve made this guide to help you find them quickly.
Destiny 2: where to find the Imperial treasure
We currently have the location of six treasure chests, so let’s get started. These chests are quite large and very bright so shouldn’t be too difficult to miss. Each one is linked to a different bounty and Triumph, so be sure to check the Triumph tab when you’re finished.
Imperial Treasure Map: Well of Flame – Nessus
Having completed the Imperial Summons questline, you’ll know there’s one at the Well of Flame on Nessus. Jump down the giant hole and at the bottom, behind some rocks, you’ll find the golden chest.
Trial by Combat: Chamber of Water – Nessus
Land at the Watcher’s Grave location on Nessus for this chest. Follow the path round to the right until you reach one of the blue portals then keep going through the cave. When you reach the main chamber, go to the pillars near the cliff’s edge and jump up to find a chest balancing on a ledge.
Gaze into Death’s Eyes: Alton Dynamo – Mars
You’re looking for the server room in the Alton Dynamo area of Mars. Head through the door that you’d normally open in the Will of the Thousands Strike and go to the right at the junction. Kill the Knight and go to the left to find a chest hidden hind a staircase.
Golden Experience: Maevic Square – EDZ
It’s back to the EDZ for this chest and you’re landing in the Trostland. Go to the right of the church and go past the ruined building until you’re overlooking Maevic Square. There should be a chest on the right on a ledge covered in plants.
Trial by Valor: Legion’s Anchor EDZ
For the second EDZ chest, spawn at the Sunken Isles then turn and go Southwest into the Legion’s Anchor base. Keep following the corridors until you reach the landing pad, then use the walkway to reach the LZ filled with tanks. You can find a chest under a tank to your left.
Imperial Bestiary: Spine of Keres – Dreaming City
Land at the Divalian Mists and head round to the Spine of Keres location where you’d usually make an offering to the Queen. When you reach the bridge that leads to the tower, jump down to the platform on your right. Take a Tincture of Queensfoil then look out to the bridge opposite you and you’ll see a platform start to form. Jump on to each platform until you reach the other side then follow the bridge to the right.
Salvaged Goods: Spine Burrows – Io
You’re heading to Io for this next chest in the Lost Oasis area. Head to the Spine Burrows cave, which you can enter near the giant tree stump. When you go into the main chamber, jump up to the platform on your right. Go through to the other side and look down to your left and you’ll see a chest. Go straight to the cliff edge then carefully move to your right to see a chest balancing on the edge.
The Imperial Salute: The Endless Gate – Io
Travel to The Rupture drop zone on Io for this chest. Jump on your Sparrow and go in the direction you spawned in, through the gap and follow the path to the right. Detour off the path to the right and enter The Endless Gate. Follow the tunnel around until you reach the large, open main chamber and you’ll see a chest on a ledge to the right.
The Emperor’s Embrace: Diaviks Mine – Tangled Shore
For this treasure chest, land at Sorik’s Cut and turn to your right, heading into the cave past the Cabal enemies. You’ll get a notification to say you’re now in Diaviks Mine, so follow the passage through until you reach the main chamber where a ship is hovering to find the chest.
Revered Treasures: Solarium – Titan
Land at The Rig and go forward to the left, under the staircases until you reach the large metal door. There should be a tunnel entrance to your left beside an adventure. Follow the path on your Sparrow and keep going until you reach the main chamber of the Solarium. There’s a chest in the bottom left of the lake.
Spoils of War: Olympus Descent – Mars
Fast travel to the Glacial Drift on Mars, then follow the path up to the left on your Sparrow. Keep to the left and enter the cave that leads to the Olympus Descent. Once you reach the area where you can look over the cliff edge, just after the location name pings, look down to your right and you’ll see a chest.
