The Division beta: have Dark Zone keys? Here's a Dark Zone chest location guide

Packing around a bunch of Dark Zone keys and can't seem to find the Dark Zone chests? Don't worry: we can help.

In the video above, Arekkz provides the locations of five chests in The Division's Dark Zones 1 and 2. It's all mapped out for you in a lovely circuit which should make it easier for you to check all locations.

During the beta, the best loot won't drop from the chests, but they include decent money which will help you afford the better weapons.

According to Arekkz, the chests seem to run on a server/instance-wide timer. So,if one person, or group opens a chest, and a second group finds it soon after, they won't be able to open it. He says he's unsure at the moment whether this is a bug or intended as a way for payers to compete in acquiring the best loot in the Dark Zones.

Just in case, Arekkz suggests player follow the circuit in the video, check all five chests and either repeat the circuit, or re-zone to try and get into a different instance.

It appears there is also a sixth Dark Zone chest in the underground beside one of the train platforms. Go through the door shown in the 3:34 mark of the video. If you take a left it should be close to the stairs.

There are other chests in the game, but this video focuses on the DZ ranked ones which require special keys.

The Division beta is going strong, and for those lucky enough to be participating, we've posts a few guides to help you get through it.

The Division is slated for release on March 8 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If you are looking for friends to play with, check out The100.io’s Division LFG service.
