The Treasure Clue for this week is reportedly bugged. Some users, including the writer of this guide, have had trouble completing the clue. The reason being is that users, especially those who have already completed Trailblazer challenges, can’t seem to register the score to complete the clue.

Here’s what worked for us. We hit three stars at the Malpais Trailblazer challenge (on the west side of the map) on an account that did not have it completed, and then the chest spawned.

To find the chest, you will need to go to the southern part of the map, right by the Horizon Wilds outpost.
