Check ferrule and tip for any looseness or movement. Also check weight bolt if cue has one.

Hold the collar tight and check again. It's almost always a collar that needs to be reglued

Next would be any inserts in the joint area

Next would be the ferrule

I usually wrap the part in blue painter's tape and check for a buzz

If the shaft joint has a brass insert, the most likely culprit of a rattle in the shaft is a piece of glue broken loose inside the joint. Spray some high pressure air into the joint to see if you can get it out.

Test the shaft and butt separately first then proceed with the rest of the suggestions.
