The Snow Highlands is covered with snow all year long. Occasionally there are snowstorms that can cause you frostbite and if not taken care of, you may lose your HP gradually until you’re dead.

 

Overview of the Map

  • Blizzard: When the blizzard warning goes off, it’s time for you to find the nearest cabin shown on the map and light fire to keep yourself warm. If you somehow know the locations of the treehouses (check the map for them under Snow Highlands Exploration Chest below), you can also find shelter there. Prepare some foods (hot water or creamy soup) that will keep you warm.
  • Ever-Frozen: The Infected in this area is stronger so if your combat level is low, try not to engage.
  • Imperial Barracks: There are 4 Imperial barracks where the soldiers are stationed. They’ll begin shooting the moment you get near to them. It is, however, a great place for you to gain.
  • Mysterious Chests: There are 5 mysterious chests located in the Snow Highlands map. It contains some items which may include Polymer Coating and Film Fabric. The locations are marked in blue circles in the map above. You can also scroll down further on this post for more details on the coordinates.
  • Evacuation Points: There are 4 helicopter towers in this map that you can go to in order to ship your items and of course yourself back to camp.

You can select the map level based on the resources you would like to gather in this map. Higher-level maps give you richer resources and more difficult enemies. Please ensure your gathering and combat level are at an appropriate level.

Snow Highlands Exploration Chests

There are 6 exploration chests in Snow Highlands. They’re pretty straightforward and easy to find although certain locations may vary slightly.

1st Chest: The Poacher’s Unlawful Possession

This is located at the top of the map where you’ll find a hanging bridge. There are two imperial soldiers patrolling the bridge. Kill them and go to the cliff area under the bridge to look for the chest.

2nd Chest: Glacier’s Gift

This chest is under the water. The location may vary slightly, sometimes located near the bridge and sometimes slightly below. Swim along the river to find it. Along the way, you may find some resource chests.

3rd Chest: Imperial Military Supplies

It’s located at the Imperial Barracks on the left side of the map. You can either find this chest on top of the tent or under a tent.

4th Chest:  Scavenger’s Legacy

The chest is on one of those floating ice. You won’t miss it!

5th Chest: The Forgotten

There are 4 tree houses in total. Near the red circle marked areas, you can find a tree house. Visit the tree house and climb up the ladder, go inside the tree house and you will find the chest. Below are the coordinates to help you find the locations more accurately.

6th Chest: Supplies on Roof

This chest is on the roof of the safe house. You can reach it by jumping from the rocks or with an ammo box.

Snow Highlands Mysterious Chests

There are 5 mysterious chests located in the Snow Highlands map. If another player already got to it first, you need to wait about 4-5 minutes for it to respawn. The items you get are at random but if you’re lucky, the chest will contain Polymer Coating and Film Fabric.

All you need to do is to open the chest to get it. Sometimes there may be an infected guarding the chest but if you’re of a higher level, it should be piece of cake.

Here are the locations of the mysterious chests:

  1. Top left of the map near the helicopter tower. [Co-ordinates -3896, 2826]
  2. Slightly below the Imperial Barracks Level 4. [Co-ordinates: -4352, -195]
  3. On the left side of the river near the cliff. [Co-ordinates: -2347, 210]
  4. The bottom left of the map near the river. [Co-ordinates -1799, -3009]
  5. Slightly below the Imperial Barracks Level 1. [Co-ordinates: 2104, -446]
