Chests are storage items that each hold up to 40 item stacks in rows of 10x4. Chests can be freed with either a Pickaxe or a Drill, but only when empty. It is impossible to destroy the blocks underneath a placed Chest.

In addition to being craftable, a number of Chests are created during world generation, and placed in random map locations. The loot contained in these Chests is determined during world generation, and will not change if the world enters Hardmode.

There are 20 varieties of naturally-occurring Chests (15 of which cannot be crafted) and 27 craftable ones, plus the Barrel and Trash Can, for a total of 42 Chest types and 44 placed storage items overall (besides Dressers and portable storage items).

There is a maximum limit of 1000 placed storage items in each world (excluding portable storage like the Safe, Piggy Bank, and Defender's ForgeDesktop Version, as well as showcase items like the Item Frame, Weapon Rack, and Mannequin). Attempts to place additional storage items beyond the max will result in a dropped item, rather than placement.

On the Desktop version Desktop version and Console version Console version, placed Chests can be renamed (20 character max). Hovering the mouse cursor over a renamed Chest will show its name. If the chest hasn't been renamed, no name will display. To rename a Chest, first open it via . The default Chest name reflects the Chest type (e.g. a Living Wood Chest has the default name "Living Wood Chest"). Select "Rename", and a keyboard interface will be displayed, allowing you to click letters or use your keyboard to type in a new name. Press or click "Save" when finished.

Desktop Version Chests can be crafted into Trapped Chests, which are not storage items, but instead send a signal when opened that activates mechanisms over wire.

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 Silver Coin, except: The Dynasty Chest, Steampunk Chest and Honey Chest, which all sell for Silver Coin; and the Glass Chest, which sells for 60 Copper Coin.

Underground Loot[edit | edit source]

The loot for any given chest is determined by the location in which it is found. Each chest contains a single "rare item" and an assortment of randomly chosen common items. The rare item is first placed in the chest, then each "set" of common items is checked to see whether or not it will be added. If a set is chosen to be added, a single item from the list is added to the chest.

Sets are displayed in the list below divided by horizontal borders. For example, the Wooden Arrow and the Shuriken both reside in the same set, so they will never both appear in the same chest.

Underground[edit | edit source]

  • The Extractinator has a lower spawn chance than other rare items, at 5%.
  • If a chest contains a Flare Gun, it also contains Flares.
  • The Bars it contains will depend on the ore types available in the current world.
