Vow of the Disciple, Destiny 2: The Witch Queen’s new raid, takes players through a Darkness Pyramid to face a foe unlike anything they’ve encountered before. As with all Destiny raids, Vow of the Disciple has hidden chests for players to find and loot. In this Destiny 2: The Witch Queen guide, we’ll show you where to find the two secret chests hidden inside the Vow of the Disciple raid.

The first secret chest is in the opening part of the Vow of the Disciple raid, where you must ferry the Darkness Surfboard to the pyramid. Scattered throughout this section are three Darkness Cruxes, which you must shoot to open the door to the chest. You can do this part solo, but you can only get loot you have already acquired from the raid.

The first Darkness Crux is in a small cove to the left of the boat’s second stop. It is in the corner and will appear on your screen when you get close enough. Shoot it, and move on to the next area.

The second Darkness Crux is at the Darkness Surfboard’s third stop. Using the surfboard’s stopped position as a guide, head in a 10 o’clock direction from the front of the surfboard. This Darkness Crux will be just ahead to your left. Shoot it, and move on to the next area.

The third and final Darkness Crux is be found under the bridge at the Darkness Surfboard’s fourth stop. You will find it hidden in the right corner and you can shoot it through the rails.

The door to the secret chest will open when you shoot all three Darkness Cruxes. The room is directly ahead of the third Darkness Crux on the right side. The door on the left side of the building will be open, and inside you will find the chest.

The second secret chest is in the jumping puzzle after the Caretaker encounter. You’ll know you’re in the correct room when you see six golden pillars and the opening to the outside will be to your right. It’s the third part, where you have to jump out and around the platforms.

When you look out and to the right, you’ll see two platforms that are toward the top and very close together. That’s your destination. You can get there by taking the normal path up, but instead of jumping to the left as you would to move on to the next encounter, jump around the corner to your right. Continue up the platforms until you reach those two you saw earlier.

There will be a small platform to jump up onto on your left. Jump up there, and you’ll see five tubes to jump down.

There is a doorway above the fifth tube on the left. Jump into it, and in there you will find the chest.
