Exile Camps - Loot boxes stop opening

Region: [United States - East]

[I’ve found that loot boxes from NPC camps / Exile Camps stop opening and remain that way until a server restart. The box becomes a blank window. I could not find information on this so I wanted to add it here. If this is intended or reported elsewhere, please disregard. ]

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Open a chest at a NPC camp (sometimes a few times every time it re-spawns)
  2. Ensure noone else is opening the chest. (This appears to happen when I am consecutively opening. If someone else opens, it appears to be fine.)
  3. EDIT* I believe this has to do with leaving the box open after looting it. I started closing lids but not have tested this on a longer time interval. I read someone stating the same.

The only advice I can offer is to destroy the loot box after looting. This has worked for a number of folks both online and solo.

It’s a known issue, but quite random and difficult to determine the source.

Good luck !




I tested this with a friend and found that if I am the sole “viewer” of the box I can close after looting. If my friend viewed the box I could no longer close the box and it would become bugged. If my friend closed the box it would still happen, but at a much lesser interval.

Ronnie, that is exactly what happens to us. Sometimes after the box is left open, the first person that opened it can close it, otherwise we destroy it. All the above are not restricted to Exile Camps, either. Same issue with most metal loot boxes, for example.

I’ve not been methodical about it, but think that every box we destroyed respawned normally.



Two things are absolute certainties :

  1. You open chest with E… you close them with E… otherwise with any other way => no more reset till the chest is destroyed or the next server restart.
  2. If you don’t pick all items inside the chest => the same can happen :stuck_out_tongue:

All i can tell : i’m able to farm chests the whole day without issue by respecting these two things :wink:

There is another way to open chests than ‘E’ ?
