Chests are storage items that hold up to 40 item stacks in rows of 10x4. They can only be freed and picked up when empty, which is done using a Pickaxe. It is impossible to destroy the blocks underneath the chest while it still has items in it.

In addition to being craftable, Chests also occur naturally in random map locations and contain various loot.

There are 19 varieties of natural Chests (14 of which cannot be crafted) and 26 craftable ones (plus a Barrel and a Trash Can), for a total of 40 Chest types and 42 placed storage items overall (besides Dressers, Safes and Piggy Banks).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Before opening a chest outside of a dungeon in a hardmode world, it would be advisable to shoot it with a ranged weapon or summon a minion, because the chest might really be a mimic. If it is, it will take damage and start chasing the player.

Craftable Chests[edit | edit source]

  • All crafted Chests can be sold for 1 Silver Coin, except: The Dynasty Chest, Steampunk Chest and Honey Chest, which all sell for 5 Silver Coin; and the Glass Chest, which sells for 60 Copper Coin.
