The in-game description of the Lootmapper in Wuthering Waves goes as follows:

"Lootmapper allows its users to locate nearby collectible Supply Chests by detecting their frequencies. The Lootmapper craves a useful advantage for seekers of adventure."

To unlock the Lootmapper in Wuthering Waves, you must first reach Pioneer Level 1. Pioneer Levels are unlocked progressively as you explore the world. Simply complete exploration tasks and discover new locations to wrap up these mini-quests.

The Lootmapper is the first utility that can be unlocked without progressing through the campaign - unlike the Grappling Hook. Unfortunately, this also means that players can potentially skip this rather useful gadget entirely, if not careful.

Always make sure to visit the Pioneer Association (present near west of Jinzhou) at regular intervals to gauge your progression. A Resonance Beacon can be located (and unlocked) rather early on in the game’s campaign - located near the Association.

"Place a Lootmapper to locate nearby collectible Supply Chests within a certain confine. You can only place 3 Lootmappers at once. If you exceed the limit, the first one you placed will be taken back automatically, You can also manually retrieve them."

Like any other gadget, the Lootmapper must be equipped in Wuthering Waves for you to be able to use it. To equip the item, bring up the Utility Wheel (Tab on PC) and place it in one of the empty slots.

After the Lootmapper is equipped, press the T key on your keyboard to activate it.
