Are there changes to how this quest works in A18? Found this wiki but figured it is outdated.

In my current A18e game, the red flashing chest is on a mountain top in the snow biome. The area located near the flashing icon looks to be a combination of snow and stone. Any pointers?

I think the zombies actually spawn when you close the buried treasure container. At least that is always when they appear for me, regardless of how long I"ve been digging.

Nope, heard zombies growling even before happening upon the chest. I also think the time is somewhat random. In the past i was digging around and Zs would always appear even before i found the chest.

 

Could those have been just the usual zombies lurking about, i.e. chunk spawns ? The 3 buried treasure I did had one thing in common: The moment I looted the chest 4 zombies spawned around me, the growl of them came a moment after closing the chest

Like i mentioned, the time could be varied. I always look around before attempting to spend a lot of time on something.

 

That one time i made like 6 ditches 2 blocks deep before finding the box... I had a group close in on my location even before halfway through. Definitely not a random group, as i encounter each such group at every treasure box. Even in A18 i had one group appear just before digging out the chest. Was quick enough to clear it and run off a few meters to estimate the situation and how i should fight, instead of being surrounded.

Awesome tips guys. One last question. Does the distance to the treasure take into account elevation? I would assume yes since it seems to increase/decrease when changing elevations.

Yea for the trader joe buried quest the zed squad only appear once you open/close the chest. At least on the last 15 of these missions I did. The buried treasure and fetch quest are definitely the easiest of the joe quest to do. There needs to be more incentive to do the clear zed quest honestly or it"s just not worth it.

 

edit: It probably does take into account elevation but I have never seen the chest more than 3 blocks down once you get to its location. I have however seen the chest in the rafters of a building and have heard of it even being burred under buildings.
