Loot Caches are Destiny's version of treasure chests that you can find out in the wild, and loot will vary from what the source is, as well as shape, coloring and design. They can be opened without restriction; once opened, anyone can come by and claim their own chest rewards until the chest disappears.

Each Loot Cache will differ from design, depending on which enemy factions are present in the vicinity.
The term Loot Caches refers specifically to faction-specific chests which are scattered about the public Sectors of patrol zones.
- Though the models for Loot Caches are reused as end-of-Strike reward chests, these chests do not offer the same rewards.
