How to Unlock a Cosmic Chest

Unlocking a Cosmic Chest is a bit of a process.

First, a Cosmic Chest will only activate when all team members are within its vicinity. Then, players must take turns hitting weak spots until the gem around the chest cracks. At first, players will hit these spots one at a time, but eventually, the gem will require two or more players to hit spots in order to proceed in its opening.
