If you are a survival game fan, then you have probably heard of LifeAfter from NetEase. This zombie survival game for mobile devices has quickly become one of the most popular downloads to date. In the game, you get to create a character and work with other players in order to rebuild the world from the ashes. Drive off the Infected and reclaim the land. To do this, you will need a lot of resources, both for crafting and survival. You can gather various resources from trees, rocks, plants, and so on.
Aside from natural sources, however, you will also find chests scattered throughout each map. These chests contain an assortment of items, including rare materials that could give you an advantage in the game. Don’t worry because you won’t need to walk around aimlessly in search of these chests. Our LifeAfter strategy guide for locating chests is here to help you!
1. Check The Map Exploration List
When you tap on the home button then scroll to the right, you will see the Exploration button. Tap on it to view the list of locations and how far along you are in terms of finding all the hidden chests. The different locations have varying numbers of chests and the list will tell you exactly how many chests to look for. Each chest you find will put a yellow box icon on the map to indicate its location. Once you have found all the chests, you should return to the list to claim your reward.
2. Hope 101 Chest Locations
There are four chests in Hope 101. Locating them is actually part of a quest. Each chest is located inside a building. The exact position of the chest may change, but the building will not. That means you just need to go to the specified buildings and search every nook and cranny until you find the hidden chest. The first one is in the Mayor’s house. The second is inside the Central Market building. The third is in the restaurant. And the fourth one is in the Commerce building.
You might need to jump up to higher places or look behind NPCs to find the hidden chests. For example, the chest in the Mayor’s house is sometimes found on the roof. You will need to go to the balcony and jump on the stack of crates in order to reach the roof. They have a bluish glow, so it’s pretty easy to spot them from afar.
3. Fall Forest Chest Locations
The chests in Fall Forest change in location. Unlike with the Hope 101 chests, the ones in Fall Forest can be found in old houses, caves, and other places. They could vary greatly for different players. The only way to find them is to follow the daily tips that are given to you. Head into the Map Exploration List once more and tap on the Fall Forest. You will see the tip for the day that will give you a hint on the chest’s location. Make sure you check the tip every day until you find all four chests.
