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. 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% 
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.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- 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]
- 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 before Hardmode, but saved to open during Hardmode, can yield Hardmode ores. A wise player can stockpile crates to open later in Hardmode, giving them a big head start in collecting Hardmode ores.
- As soon as you have enough iron, replace your Wood Fishing Pole with a Reinforced Fishing Pole.
- Pick your bait: worms are easy to come by on a rainy day, but few butterflies and jungle critters are more powerful. Use the best you have available. If you have Fallen Stars to spare, you might make Enchanted Nightcrawlers.
- Both the Angler and opening crates will provide better bait over time, and will also provide useful potions: A Fishing Potion boosts your fishing power directly; a Sonar Potion saves time and bait, by letting you reject anything but crates and interesting fish.
- Eventually, the Angler will provide equipment that can still further boost your fishing power.
