“Trust Goes Both Ways” in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is a new mission you’ll pick up from Fynch, the friendly Hive Ghost who serves as the vendor in Savathun’s Throne World.

You’ll pick up this quest early on in The Witch Queen campaign, but it isn’t central to the plot. The quest serves to show you around the new location, and isn’t required to finish the campaign. However, it will net you some sweet Throne World weapons, armor, and Fynch reputation.

All told, Truth Goes Both Ways is a very straightforward quest. If you mark the quest in your journal, the game will show you where to go most of the time. However, there are two sections where you’ll need to find chests in the Throne World: Region and Faction.

There are only nine Region chests in the Throne World, and you’ll need to find all of them if you want to complete this quest. The Region chests are all marked on the map with a symbol, but they can still be tricky to find.

In this guide we’ll tell you the difference between Region and Faction chests, as well as where to find all the gold chests in Savathun’s Throne World.

Faction chests

During “Trust Goes Both Ways,” you’ll get a quest to pick up several Faction chests scattered throughout the Throne World. This may sound like a new type of objective to discover, but it actually just means enemy chests found inside the location.

You can find these chests randomly strewn about a variety of spawning locations if you just look carefully enough. However, there’s also a four energy Ghost Mod called Treasure Hunter — which you can pair with the Blinding Light XP mod to fill up your Ghost’s energy slots — that will let you detect treasure chests within 50 meters, showing you where they are immediately.

We recommend popping on that Ghost mod to help you find the Faction chests

First Quagmire region chest

The first region chest in the Quagmire region is at the top part of the map, just above the name Quagmire.

Jump up above the swamp and look for a small bluff jutting out of a mountain, overlooking the Scorn area below. You’ll see the golden chest sitting on the edge of the bluff.

Second Quagmire region chest

The second quagmire chest is to the south, sitting on some of the Light-infused castle architecture.

You’re looking for a castle parapet or turret looking over a big chasm. Climb the structure closest to the swamp wall and you’ll find the chest resting precariously on the edge.

Third Quagmire region chest

The third Quagmire chest is in a Light-infused area, just under the name Quagmire on the map.

Find the icon on the map and walk over to it. You’ll see some Light-infused castle and a big bridge. Jump down under the bridge and look for a gap. Jump into the gap and you’ll see the chest resting against a door.

First Miasma region chest

The first Miasma region chest is northwest of the Lost sector.

You’ll see some crumbling Hive architecture here and what looks like a bridge. If you run under the crumbled, smooshed area, you’ll find the chest sitting up against a wall.

Second Miasma region chest

The second Miasma chest is in the southern part of the region, in a large tower.

If you know where to look, this one is tough to miss. There’s a big tower in the Miasma area. Climb it and the chest is on one of the top-most platforms.

Third Miasma region chest

The third Miasma chest is the hardest to find based on its map icon. You’re looking for a cave entrance in the northeast part of the zone.

Once you find the entrance, follow the cave to the chest.

If you look at the image above, this is where the chest actually is. But to get inside the mountain, look at the little hook just north of our green arrow.

First Florescent Canal region chest

The first region chest in the Florescent Canal is on the south side of the region.

Go to the great chasm at the bottom part of the map and look for the tower standing next to a wall. Look through the tower and you’ll see the treasure chest sitting on the edge of the wall. Jump over to it.

Second Florescent Canal region chest

The second region chest in the Fluorescent Canal is north of the entrance to the Court of Thorns.

Climb to the top of the large tower here and open the chest sitting on the edge, similarly to the second chest in Quagmire.

Third Florescent Canal region chest

The final gold chest in the Florescent Canal and Savathun’s Throne World is, where else, behind a waterfall.

Near the entrance to the Court of Thorns you’ll find two giant chalice towers with white waterfalls spilling out of them. Go to the north-most one and follow the water down to a small room. Go inside and you’ll find another golden chest.

With that, you’ve found all the region chests for the “Trust Goes Both Ways” quest in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen. All you need to do now is kill some Scorn and follow the objective markers.
