Destiny 2: Black Armory – How To Find The Mysterious Box | Exotic Quest Guide

Fans have already discovered one of the early Black Armory Exotic Quests in Destiny 2. It’s hidden in a cave, naturally.

How To Find The Mysterious Box | Exotic Quest Guide

[Work-in-Progress: Check back soon for updates on how to complete each step of this quest.]


To find the ‘Mysterious Box’ and begin an Exotic Quest, you’ll need to find a hidden collectible crate in the EDZ. Images in the gallery above were shared by Redditor u/Auraaaaaa.

  • Mysterious Box Location:¬† Located in The Tunnels area (EDZ), in the northwest dome chamber. When entering from below, stick to the right side to find the cave with the box. Interact to begin the Exotic Quest.

The Mysterious Box has four step. You’ll need to unlock four locks, each with a unique symbol — a Butterfly Lock, a Fishhook Lock, a Hand lock, and a Black Armory Lock. It isn’t clear exactly how to open these locks, but players have a pretty good guess at this point.

To unlock each lock, you may need to complete all four Forge events. There is a forge¬†activity on four planets, and each one is more difficult than the last. The first forge, located in the EDZ, is PL 610+. There are symbols hidden in each area, and apparently they won’t activate until after the forge event is complete. You may need to reach PL 630 simply to complete the EDZ forge. That’s going to take a whole lot of grinding.
