How To Farm Strongboxes

Strongboxes are more commonly found in missions that have more areas, thus increasing the chances of Strongboxes appearing.

Note that Bronze Strongboxes are randomly generated on any mission and may disappear or relocate. However, silver and gold ones remain on the stage always.

The team agrees that the following missions offer the best chances of finding strongboxes.

Vault Missions

Vault missions contain at the very least three silver strongboxes per run and at least a gold strongbox or the rare DNA strongbox that can only be opened with a DNA Key. This does not include the possibility of having four or more bronze strongboxes. That's minimum ten strongboxes per run.

War Zones

Certain War Zones actually may yield you a lot of strongboxes that may equal or even surpass Vault Missions though they don't have DNA strongboxes.

In particular, there is the Day Of The Remains mission. This mission contains an assured 6 strongboxes whether or not you play the entire mission with all the side objectives or not. At best, one run with all side objectives completed may yield you 16 strongboxes. And most of the strongboxes can be acquired with minimal enemy interference.

Other notable mentions include Enter The Avengers and Our Town War Zones and their Revisit versions.
