Treasure Hunting is a method of looking for treasures, gathering rare Materials and earning Achievements. With the help of the Metal Detector and a Shovel, players can explore Islands to uncover collectibles and resources. This is currently one of the two only ways to find Titanium Ore, the other being searching rooms in Tangaroa skyscrapers. Titanium is needed for making Large Storages, Electric Purifiers, Battery Chargers, Engine Controls, and Water Tanks.
There is a specified number of treasures available per island type.
- Small Tropical Islands and generic Desert Biome islands contain one treasure.
- Large Tropical Islands and generic Evergreen Biome islands contain two or three treasures.
- Balboa Island contains three to six treasures.
The quality of the found treasure varies from poor to high quality. The poorest quality treasure is indicated by a pile of trash, the medium quality by a suitcase and the high quality by a combination safe. On rare occasions, the player may instead find a Tiki Piece. There are a total for four different Tiki Pieces that each have their own colors and facial expression.
Each type of treasure has a specified array of items, as well as the number of items looted per treasure. When looting a treasure, the game first decides on the amount of items, and then rolls that number of items on the list. Acquiring a specific item does not prevent it from being drawn again, meaning the player can get multiple of the same item. This means that the player may get lucky and receive multiple rare items from a single treasure.
