Destiny 2 The Mindbender hidden chest location - how to complete Hiving in Plain Sight

Where to find the hidden chest in Destiny 2 mission The Mindbender.

Destiny 2 The Mindbender hidden chest location is an optional Triumph Hiving in Plain Sight you can complete as you go through the Forsaken walkthrough.

It's easily missed, but if you passed it by the first time through the expansion's story, chances are you'll have the opportunity to play it again in future.

Here's where to find the hidden chest location in The Mindbender Adventure, step-by-step.

Where to find the Destiny 2 The Mindbender hidden chest location

First, play through The Mindbender mission until you defeat The Mindbender itself.

Afterward, you're told the Ascendant Plane is collapsing, and you should escape through the portal. Don't be too hasty at this point - though the floor will damage you if you stay in this area, this is where the first step in finding the chest is.

Don't worry about wiping either - you'll spawn back in this room as long as you don't go through the portal.


Face the portal's direction, then look just beyond it to the right. There are a series of platforms going up behind it. You may have to show your Ghost to see them easier - much like the platforms on the Dreadnaught back in the original Destiny expansion The Taken King.


Leap up this platform, and take the rest going up and around above the portal, until you find a key.


Pick up the key, then drop down in front of the portal, then go through it.


Season of the Lost is here, with new Exotics such as the Ager's Scepter and the long-awaited arrival of crossplay. New activities include the Wayfinders Voyage, the Astral Alignment activity and finding Atlas Skew, Trivial Mystery, Enigmatic Mystery, Ascendant Mystery, Data Cache, Parallax Trajectory and Ascendant Anchor locations. Elsewhere, we've seen new Nightfall weapons such as the Uzume RR4, Plug One.1 and Hung Jury SR4. Other recent new features include transmog and materials Synthstrand, Synthcord and Synthweave, the Splicer Gauntlet and Decrypted Data used to upgrade it.

After going through the portal, you'll be in a more hospitable room. Here, turn to the right to see a door.


Approaching the door will give you the option to unlock it. Use the button prompt to do so, where you will find The Mindbender hidden chest inside.


Open the hidden chest, and the 'Hiving in Plain Sight' Triumph is yours - as well as the 'Secret Treasure' Emblem.


Nicely done!
