Treasure Coordinates are one of the many seasonal currencies of Destiny 2’s Season of Plunder. Like past seasons, Bungie had to make the Destiny 2 Season of Plunder gameplay loop as complicated as possible. There are Fragments, an Atlas, the Star Chart, Treasure Maps, Pundered Umbral Energy, two new activities that those resources are used in, and the topic of this guide – Treasure Coordinates.

I’ll be going over Treasure Coordinates in as much detail as possible. I’ll be explaining what the currency is, how you earn it, and what you use it for. By the time you’re done here, you’ll know everything you need to take Season of Plunder by the proverbial horns.

Treasure Coordinates are the main seasonal currency for Season of Plunder. While they’re used alongside Map Fragments and Plundered Umbral Energy, they outrank those two in terms of how much you’ll earn, and how much you’ll use them.

Treasure Coordinates are used to create Treasure Maps with the Captain’s Atlas. The Captain’s Atlas is Season of Plunder’s quest item, and it allows you to convert both Map Fragments and Treasure Coordinates into Maps. These maps are then taken into Expeditions to earn additional rewards.

You get Coordinates by completing various activities out in the Destiny world. These can be anything from Strikes to Gambit to random Public Events. It’s a universal currency that you’ll earn regardless of what you’re doing. This means you’ll pretty much never have to worry about farming it.

The only thing you need to be aware of is that there’s a 325 max limit on your Coordinates in your inventory. Once you hit that number – you won’t earn any more. So, make a point of spending as much as you earn.

That’s pretty much all there is to them. They’re earned from random world activities throughout Season of Plunder, and you use them with Map Fragments to create Treasure Maps in the Captain’s Atlas. Yes, all these moving parts are complicated. With a bit of repetition, though, you’ll have your head wrapped around everything in no time.
