    Okay so I just got this now, and just as a completion thing I got the commendation for 360 chests but then I needed 361 to get the achievement to pop for some reason. It literally just happened for me now so to anyone after this achievement don't be disappointed if you need that extra chest to get the job done.

    And yeah to get the achievement just grind gold haulers, visit sunken ships, explore islands and beaches etc until job done. It's a grind but not a hard one.

    SilentRich69They should count, never actually thought I would need to check but as far as I am aware it should count.

    crewdyWorth noting, the 'Reapers Run of Wanderers Refuge' merchant mission currently available from Duke will cost 5 doubloons but gives you between 16 and 20 captains chests each time!

    OJLeanIf someone from your alliance turns in a captains chest does it count?

    SilentRich69I do not think it counts, as far as I know you only get the money and XP. Does not seem to affect commendations.

    Long DrongDoes it count if you sell the chests to the reaper?

    SilentRich69I'd assume it is only the gold hauler since I believe it is linked to the commendation. But if somebody wants to test it and find out that would be cool. If anyone does tell me and I can update my solution.

    ProPeanutsDelivering to Reaper does not work/count. The commendation specifically needs you to turn in at the gold hoarders.

    TetrahedriteDoes it count if a crewmate sells the chest? I still get 100% of the reward.

    SilentRich69As long as somebody is in your crew it should always count. Allies do not.
