Loot Chests always empty - last 2 days


#1

I’m near New Asgard and in that area, no matter how much time I spend and wait, the loot chests are always empty. The enemies continue to repopulate the area, but all have empty chests. What’s wrong?


#2

It seems a bit long indeed.
PVE/PVP or single player mode?
If it’s multi, probably an other player has already cleaned the area before you.
Keep in mind chests needs more time than NPCS to respawn/refill. Moreover i’m pretty sure you need to get out of the cell to let them refill whereas NPCs can respawn even if you’re standing 5 meters close to their spawn point.
last thing to note: it seems the further away you go, the fastest npcs and chests will be able to respawn/refill but i might be wrong.

destroy the chests after looting them, and they will respawn with new loot.

But yes, the chests not spawning new loot has been an issue for a while. they have made some adjustments and progress, but apparently its still problematic.


#4

I’m virtually the only one on the abandoned server. I have no one competing for the loot with me. I’ve gone great distances and it doesn’t seem to make a difference when I return, just a blank black screen with no inventory slots on the right of my own inventory.


#5

Do I need a certain weapon to destroy the chests?


#6

nope. any weapon will do it.


#7

ok strange, try what night fury told you then…


#8

That worked. Thank you!


#9

Yeah been that way since launch I think I always had to break the loot box once I was done to get a new one to spawn since day one of EA launch…
