How to open Criptograma Chests

There’s only one way to open a Criptograma Chest in Far Cry 6: You must find two charts in the chest’s vicinity to unlock the box. Two sigils with unique designs are on the chest. These two images represent two charts you need to find in the surrounding area. These charts match the images on the chest, and both have a number associated with them. You’ll use the combination of these digits to unlock each Criptograma Chest.

Finding charts can be a hassle, but clues leading you to the charts will always be in blue. Look for blue graffiti, blue cloth, blue flowers, and anything else in the Libertad blue that may lead you toward the charts.

The charts themselves will be pieces of cardboard with black and orange paint that share the same design as sigils on the closed chest. You’ll find them in the environment stuck to something with a sharp object like a knife or arrow.

Once you’ve located both charts, head back to the Criptograma Chest to open it up to receive unique gear.


Isla Santuario Criptograma Chest

There is only one Criptograma Chest on Isla Santuario.

Armonia Criptograma Chest

The chest is located on the left side of the central building in this area. Opening this chest gives you the Hazmat Gloves MK II.

Ride the jet ski to the next island toward the east. Right next to the fishing spot, you’ll find a broken dock with orange paint and blue cloth. Dive into the shark-infested water past another plank with orange paint further down until you see one with white paint. Right next to that plank is the chart.

When you enter the cathedral, your goal is to exit through the door on the opposite side. Sneak along the walls and along the construction to get to the other side. If you fall, there’s a grapple point near where you entered from.

Once you’re through the door on the other side, follow the path along until you find a ramp leading to a rooftop garden with vines. Jump across, climb the vines, and find the last chart on a wall.
