All red chests in Borderlands 3: where to find

If you’re after the best loot Borderlands 3 has to offer, red chests are a must. These often hard-to-find chests are one of the best ways to get legendary and exotic items for a relatively low cost. There are 57 of them in total, with a different number of them in each location, similar to how they were used in previous Borderlands games.

Some chests require special circumstances to open, others can simply be found by looking into hidden locations, and still others are unlocked through boss battles. Red chests are required for 100% completion of the game and are tracked on the in-game map, so if you are serious about beating the game, you simply need them.

What are red chests?

Red Chests are Loot Chests that can be found throughout the Borderlands 3 game map, just like normal Loot Boxes, only they contain high-level gear. They can be found in the five main zones of the game – Pandora, Prometheus, Athenas, Eden 6 and Necrotafeyo.

It’s worth waiting until you hit level 50 before going out to find all the red chests, as you’re guaranteed to get the best loot this way. However, it’s also worth opening the few chests you get from boss fights so you don’t overwhelm yourself with bad gear.

You can also open each chest multiple times by changing cards and returning the chest, which is a great way to loot gear, especially once you’ve reached max level.

This is one of the few collectibles in Borderlands 3 that does not appear on the in-game map, as it is part of a quest to find them.

Every chest needs to be opened in order to complete the game in 100%, except for two found in The Drought and Athens. Some of them also require side quests to be completed before you can access them.

Red chests of all types can be found throughout the Borderlands 3 map. Each weapon brand has its own unique design, which will become apparent once you get an idea of ​​what each brand looks like.
