Crates are grab bag-type items that can be hooked while Fishing, containing random loot such as Ores, Bars, Potions, Accessories, and other items. In addition, biome-specific crates can contain biome-specific loot. They can be right-clicked within the player's inventory to unload their contents. Desktop only.png They can also be placed. Each Crate can be stacked up to 99 in a single inventory slot.

If fishing in Water with Fishing Power high enough to prevent junk catches (fishing power of 50) and the line does not break there is a 10% chance to harvest crates normally and 20% when fishing with a Crate Potion.

The kind of crate the player gets is dependent on the Fishing Power, with higher Fishing Power the probabilities of rarer Crates are raised. E.g with a Fishing Power of 100 in a Corrupted Biome the probabilities would be: Golden Crate: 6.57%; Corrupt Crate: 8.90%; Iron Crate: 28.37%; Wooden Crate: 56.16% [1]

Rarer crate types contain more valuable loot. When fishing in an area with multiple biomes, the crate priority is, from highest to lowest, Corruption > Crimson > Hallowed > Dungeon > Jungle > Sky. For example, when a Floating Island is corrupted and changes to The Corruption, Sky Crates will no longer be harvested.

Console only.pngMobile only.png The Console and Mobile versions currently have Wooden Crates, Iron Crates and Golden Crates.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Xbox 360 logo large.svg On Xbox, Right Trigger opens crates (instead of the B button which is the equivalent of the pc's right-click).Verify

Tips[edit | edit source]

Hint: Increase your fishing power, so you can catch more crates
  • Crates can yield ores (and bars) not otherwise found on the player's world. For instance, a Crate can yield Platinum Ore, even if the world is generated with Gold Ore instead of Platinum.
  • Crates collected in pre-Hardmode can yield Hardmode ores if opened in Hardmode. It is advisable for the player to save many of their Crates for opening in Hardmode.
