How to open the Far Cry 6 Criptograma Chests and solve the puzzle solutions needed
Far Cry 6 Criptograma chests actually require you to find two Criptograma Charts. I know, it's odd, but hear us out - for every chest there'll be two charts somewhere in the vicinity close by. There'll be clues in the local area around the chest, usually blue arrows or markers that seem to hint at a path to follow. There's even a little windchime noise when you're close to one of them. Follow these paths until you find a chart, which looks like a piece of paper stuck to the wall with a big knife. Grab it, then head back to the chest and find the other pathway to get a second chart.
Now you have both, the chest should open. The chests themselves contain gear pieces, the full fifteen chests amounting to three full gear sets - the Hazmat MK II, Fuego MK II and Rioter MK II sets, which are all upgrades over the standard versions that you probably found earlier in the game.
