There are three invisible Khajit Caravan chests in Skyrim, each with incredible amounts of loot. Here's where to find them.

Though The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the undisputed all-time great, era-defining video gamesit’s also incredibly breakable, provided you know how to break it. Three glitched, completely invisible chests are just waiting to be found, and here’s how.

Where to Find Invisible Chests in Skyrim

Of course, these three invisible chests contain loot you’ll want to find. They are in areas that were supposed to be unreachable, but we’ll show you how to get them anyway.

All three of these invisible chests are Khajit Caravan chests, and they can be looted infinitely. To do so, locate the Khajit Traders in the area. They usually travel between Whiterun, Markarth, and Dawnstar. You can talk with them to see what they have. Here’s where to find all three of them:

Invisible Khajit Caravan Chest 1

The first chest can be found in Dawnstar, so fast travel there to save on some walking. Once you’re there, take the first right and follow the path past the Wind Peak Inn and The White Hall. Follow this path straight until you spot some wooden carts and a smelter to your right. You should see a mine in front of you.

To the left of the mine entrance, you should see three small rocks on the ground. A few feet back among the trees, between the left and middle rock among the trees, you can hover your reticle and receive a prompt to open a chest despite there not being one.

This is the first invisible chest, and it comes with supplies to last a lifetime. It even has some iron ore, which you loot infinitely many times.

Invisible Khajit Caravan Chest 2

The second invisible chest is just outside Solitude. Right before you enter through the outer wall, take a hard right into a small grassy area overlooking a large cliff.

You should see a small collection of light gray rocks on the right and a shrub to the left. Immediately past the shrub, inspect the ground closely for a dark blue stick.

Directly south of this blue stick by about a foot, you will receive a prompt to open yet another invisible chest. Much like the last one, this chest contains way more than your typical chest would include (like 1,000 gold and some ebony ingots), plus potions galore. So loot at your heart’s desire.

Invisible Khajit Caravan Chest 3

The third invisible chest hides outside Markarth. Fast travel to Markarth stables and follow the cobblestone path away from the city. You’ll have to follow it for a short while, passing the first bridge and waterfall on your right until you reach the second bridge with a sign and a small stone wall. Stop once you get here.

Walk around to the opposite side of this wall and start inspecting the ground in front of it. A few feet away from the wall, at around the fourth or fifth stone on the bottom row, another invisible chest prompt pops up. This chest will include some amazing loot, even including an ebony bow and 1,000 gold.

Now that you know where to farm these incredibly decked-out glitched chests in Skyrim, you’ll be set for loot for good. With that infinite gold, you can buy all the houses or horses you could ask for.

Why Aren’t The Invisible Chests Showing Up?

In some rare cases, you may have difficulty finding the chests in the spots we mention above. This is likely for a few different reasons: you have a mod conflicting with the positioning of the chest, or you have a patch that fixed the glitch. If you have any mods that change the landscape or terrain, please disable them and look again. You should also disable the Unofficial Skyrim Patch mod since that will likely prevent any glitches like this from occurring.
