How to Solve Hyena Chest Reset Issue with Division 2 Chatterbox Exotic SMG?

To solve the Hyena Chest reset “issue” that has been plaguing Division 2 players trying to obtain the Chatterbox Exotic SMG, you have to let 24 hours pass after the last time you opened it. I put the word “issue” in quotes because it’s not exactly a real issue; more of a misunderstanding, really. See, here’s the catch. The Hyena caches in Division 2 reset in 24 hours after the last time you opened them, not after the first time. Annoying, I know. The same thing seems to go for all orange boxes in the game.

Here’s an example. Say you open a Hyena chest, and you don’t get one of the components necessary for crafting the Chatterbox SMG. Now, you have to wait for 24 hours. However, if you come back and open it before the full 24 is out, and find it empty, the timer apparently resets. So, if the chest doesn’t drop what you want, do not open it again until 24 hours pass. Otherwise, you’ll just be adding unnecessary wait time, and delaying another swing at the Chatterbox Exotic SMG component. The fact that you have to wait a whole day is aggravating enough as it is; don’t make things worse for yourself. We have found for you 7 HYENA CHEST LOCATIONS.

    Currently I am on gear score 450 and am looking for components for the chatter box . If I get it before world tier 5, does that mean the chatter box will remain at a 450 weapon? Will I have to get the components again once I reach world tier 5 to make it 500?
