Biome Keys are Hardmode items used to open Biome Chests. Though unusable until Plantera is defeated, they can be dropped at any time during Hardmode. On the Desktop version Desktop version and Console version Console version, each key has a 0.04% (1/2500) chance of dropping from an enemy in the key's respective biome. On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and 3DS version 3DS version, they are not dropped directly and must be crafted from Biome Key Molds.

Any enemy in the biome that will drop coins when killed can drop the key, not just biome-exclusive enemies. Keys cannot be dropped by Meteor Heads (which don't drop coins in Hardmode), enemies spawned by a statue, Critters, or any enemy spawned by a pillar in the Lunar EventsDesktop VersionConsole Version. Additionally, enemies in Hybrid Biomes have a chance to drop any key from its composite biomes. The biome is determined by which biome the player currently is in, not the enemy killed.

Desktop VersionConsole Version Any Biome Key dropped prior to defeating Plantera will display the tooltip "It has been cursed by a powerful Jungle creature" and will be unable to open its respective chest until Plantera is defeated. However, cursed keys are usable in worlds where Plantera has already been defeated. Biome Keys are consumed upon use.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All of the weapons found with a Biome Key are Cyan rarity, the third highest rarity tier.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • A good way to get a Corruption Biome Key is to farm the Eater of Worlds in a corruption world. Luring the Eater of Worlds into the Crimson can also cause it to drop a Crimson Biome Key.
