The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

Surviving Covert Cavern could be difficult because there are many times when the player is exposed to fire, a large number of opponents, boss, and IO Guards, but certainly rewarding with loot, a Gunnar's Stinger SMG, and a Vault

At the southern entrance to the cave, you could find a Slurp Truck that brings 100HP, this was one of the two Slurp Trucks in Artemis.

You could store the Covert Cavern Keycard in tents after a recent hotfix to use for a later game.


  • Covert Cavern's codename is "Athena.Location.POI.CrazyCave".
  • Covert Cavern is the first POI in Chapter 3 and the first one after 5 seasons that has a Boss with a Keycard for a Vault.
  • Covert Cavern had resemblance to The Grotto, a former location in Apollo; both are inside a rock formation, both are in the water, and they both have similar ways of entrances. Despite these resemblance Covert Cavern is bigger than the Grotto and has the triple of the Grotto loot as chests and floor. Covert Cavern's Vault also has the double of loot of a regular vault like the Grotto.
  • After the Grotto was flooded, due to it being a fan-favorite POI, many fans requested for its return, so it was given to the fans in Chapter 3 through Covert Cavern.
  • Covert Cavern was the POI with the most loot that has ever been on the island.
  • Before The End, Covert Cavern and Brutus' Basin were on the same location on the Map, but Covert Cavern was technically upside down since the island hadn't flipped yet.
  • If you dived through the top entrance in a vehicle and hit the water, the impact would immediately eliminate you and your passengers, with the Reboot Cards getting stuck at the bottom of the reservoir.
