In The Division, as you start exploring the Dark Zone area you will have two ways to acquire the gear – First is to start killing the AI enemies, they will drop the loot just like it work in the Story mode and the second is by Looting the Chest. Whenever you have the gear that’s when a yellow colored mat bag is going to appear on your back. This guide will show you where to find them along with some location tips.
As you explore the world, the buildings and the corners of the Dark Zone or the subways, you will find smaller and bigger treasure chests that will reward you with weapons and other valuable goods. There are 3 kinds of Treasure Chests in the Dark Zone. Smaller chests can be opened when you find them, other chests can only be opened when you have a specific Dark Zone Rank and the biggest ones can only be opened with Dark Zone Keys. The big chests are located all over the map and are usually guarded by a group of enemy NPCs that need to be killed first.
Tip: Even if you don´t have a key to open the chests when one of your group has a key and every player is close to the chest when he opens it, you can also loot the chest.
