There's a new way to pick up prizes in Treasure Hunter. From 00:00 Game Time on 10th May until 23:59 Game Time on 15th May, get hunting for Buried Treasure.
For that duration, your Treasure Hunter interface will be transformed into a grid-based map, and you'll open chests by clicking on squares within it.
Each square contains at least a normal chest, but 6 per grid will contain a special chest, containing a trove of 4 or 5 prizes.
These come in four types, which can contain different types of items and the amount left to find on your grid will be displayed at the side of the interface.
Here's what each chest type may contain:
|Experience Chest||Protean Chest||Skilling Chest||Antique Chest|
|Meteorites||Protean bars||Springs||Gold coins|
|Lava lanterns||Protean hides||Spirit gems||Pulse cores|
|Smouldering lamps||Protean traps||Portable packs||Prismatic lamps/stars|
|Hydra lamps||Protean memories||Dungeoneering tokens||Dragon ceremonial outfit*|
|Celebration lamps||Protean cogs||Skilling dummy packs||Queen's guard outfit*|
|Prismatic lamps/stars||Protean planks||Combat dummy packs||Wicked Hood teleports|
|Protean logs||Pulse cores||D&D tokens|
|Protean packs (s/m/l)||Silverhawk feathers|
*Note that the antique chest will always contain at least one piece of these two outfits, unless you already own both – in which case it will contain rare tokens.
There's also a chance that any of these above chest types will contain a special prize: a Treasure Chest rest animation, a held Treasure Map item, or a much rarer chance to get a lucky item (including retired ones).
Here's hoping you find your way to some top prizes. See you in game!

What is Treasure Hunter?
Treasure Hunter is playable from within RuneScape, allowing players to use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.
Playing Treasure Hunter is simple - click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.
Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.
If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.
