Loot, and Glimmer Chests spawn in random spots around set locations. Once you find one – say, in a cave or room – make sure you take another look every time you wander past that location, because it will probably be back, but in a slightly different, hidden place. Chests spawn every 3 mins around the map making farming glimmer/loot an easy task! One good way to locate a chest is to listen; they give off a slight jingling sound, distinct from that of spinmetal. When you hear the jangle, start looking around. Sometimes they appear in unusual places. On the side of a cliff only feet from death, high up in the rafters or on a broken steam pipe. You may need to do some tricky jumping to get to a chest, but trust me – you can get to it. Bring your buddies with you to ensure you all get a share of the loot, An open chest will despawn in about 30 seconds so wait for all of your fireteam before you open the chest; each chest can be looted by 3 fireteam Guardians.
