If you’ve been playing through Borderlands 3’s opening hours, you’ll have landed in The Droughts and been busy blasting through the main missions in this area. During this, you might have come across a locked chest with seemingly no way of opening it. Here’s how to open the locked chest in The Droughts in Borderlands 3.
Borderlands 3 Locked Chests & How to Open Them
Opening these locked chests revolves around Typhon Logs. These are basically little audio logs that’ll give you a bit of XP for uncovering them, as well as give you a tidbit of lore. The locked chest found on the west side of the map can only be unlocked by finding all three Typhon Logs in The Droughts.
Finding the Typhon Logs
- Head into the southeast corner of the map and look on your map for the narrow path that bulges at the end.
Once you arrive here, you’ll find a bunch of rocky cliffs, Skags, and some smaller rocks standing in the center. One of these has a ramp leading to the top, with a Typhon Log waiting for you.
- Next up, follow the road from the main camp north and look for the giant bones sticking out of the ground.
You’ll see an old bus teetering very close to the edge of a cliff here. Just to the left of it, you’ll find the next log.
- For the last log, you’ll need to wait until you’re exploring the Dahl Orbital Control building in the final mission in The Droughts.
When you reach a satellite dish in the center of a room, keep heading towards the outdoors. Right by another edge and a small, yellow building, you’ll find the final Typhon Log.
What Happens After Collecting All Typhon Logs?
At this point, Tannis will let you know that they’ve been able to triangulate the location of the Dead Drop Cache. This is that locked chest you’ve no doubt already seen in your adventures across The Droughts. Either way, head back to where you saw it, or follow our directions below.

First, you want to head to the location on our map above, where you find this grill-looking section with a bit on the other side. It’s just next to the Dahl Orbital Control building.
From there, head north into this area, and hug the right wall to go up a slight ramp. Then, jump across the small gap and look left to find the Dead Drop Cache, also known as the locked chest in The Droughts.
