When you enter the Lighthouse in Destiny 2’s Curse of Osiris expansion, there’s a chest up for grabs – but getting into it is tricky.

Curse of Osiris is upon us, so we’re going to be seeing some cool secrets and hot tips emerging. Here’s one of the first of many.

As you walk into the Lighthouse, there’s a gate blocking off a chest to the left, under the walkway in front of you. To get into it, you have to perform a specific series of actions – so specific that we’re surprised it was cracked so fast. Thankfully, The Mandalorion has shown us the way on both YouTube (embedded below) and Reddit.

As we’ve covered in our huge Destiny 2 guide, there are lots of cool little things hidden in Destiny 2’s safe zones, like the super high jumps in the Farm and the Floor is Lava challenge. This is something a big different – there’s a tangible, permanent reward for it – but it’s similarly fun and well-hidden.

Here’s the video on how to unlock this chest, but we also have text below.

As you enter, you’ll want to run into the middle of the room where Brother Vance is. You’re looking for a book with a glowing symbol on the desk here – if you interact with it, you can activate that symbol. There are now four other books you need to do this with, and they must be done in order.

The next symbol is on the bookshelf to the left (from where you’re standing now) of the entrance. Scan the shelf looking for the tiny glowing symbol. The glow is quite distinctive, and can be seen from a distance. Snag that one, then look back towards the door you initially entered through. Run past it, and when you encounter a fireplace, look for the book on the floor to the right of it.

Head back to where you saw the second symbol, and look for a table across from it. Look for that distinctive glow and press that book. Now run back the other way, and to the right of the stone slab with the eye symbol on it, there’s another book shelf. The book is up high here, so you’ll need to jump up to press it.

Now you’ve got all the books, and a conflux will pop up back near the fourth symbol. Go back and interact with it to open the gate and get to the chest, which should be full of goodies for you.

So there you have it – a nice little puzzle challenge for you. All the best, Guardians.
