Crates are grab bag-type items which 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. Their content can be unloaded by using Open / Activate. Desktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version They can also be placed.

Wooden Crates (most common), Iron Crates, and Golden Crates (rarest) can be caught anywhere. Rarer crate types contain more valuable loot. Biome Crates, which are exclusive to the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, are slightly less rare than Golden Crates and can contain items otherwise found only in the matching biome chests. 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 Corruption, Sky Crates will no longer be harvested.

The kind of crate the player obtains is dependent on their Fishing Power, with higher Fishing Power increasing the probabilities of rarer crates. As an example, fishing with a Fishing Power of 100 in a lake of at least 300 valid water tiles in the Corruption would yield crates with the following probabilities: Golden Crate: 1/150 (0.67%); Corrupt Crate: 7/750 (0.93%); Iron Crate: 7/250 (2.8%); Wooden Crate: 7/125 (5.6%). The Crate Potion doubles these chances.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Xbox 360Xbox One On Xbox, Left Trigger opens crates (instead of the 360 B.png button which is the equivalent to Desktop version Desktop's right click) as stated in the tooltip for the crates.
  • Only Wooden Crates will contain ores, though any crate can have bars.
  • A few exclusive items are found only in crates:
  • For pre-Hardmode metals, and separately for Hardmode metals, all metals possible to a given crate type will appear with equal chances and numbers. That is, if crate can supply Tin, then Tin will be just as likely as Platinum. This applies to both ore and bar forms.
    • This also applies to the alternate metals in each pair, regardless of which ore generated in the world. For instance, a Wooden Crate can yield Platinum Ore, even if the world is generated with Gold Ore instead of Platinum.
    • In Hardmode, this applies to the Hardmode metals too, whether or not any Altars have been broken to place ore in the world.
    • Only Wooden Crates contain ore, but any crate can have bars.
    • Biome crates do not have Copper or Tin, and Golden crates lack not only Copper and Tin but also Iron, Lead, Palladium, and Cobalt.
    • Crates do not contain the "advanced" metals such as Meteorite or Chlorophyte.
  • Crates always contain at least one item, as empty crates are re-rolled. This is relevant only to the Golden Crate, as all others always have at least fishing bait. The Golden crate has a 4.4% chance of requiring a reroll in pre-Hardmode, and 4.6% in Hardmode.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Crates collected before Hardmode, but saved to open during Hardmode, will yield Hardmode ores and bars. Stockpiling them while fishing is a lot safer and can give players a big head start when entering Hardmode.
    • The crates can also supply a few other Hardmode items:
    • Two stacks of Wooden Crates and a few higher-tier crates should provide enough metal for a Hardmode Forge, Hardmode Anvil, and at least some other items.
  • The higher the Fishing Power, the greater the chances for crates. See Fishing Power and Fishing § Tips for information and recommendations about how to increase Fishing Power.
  • The chance to catch a Iron or Wooden Crate increases if the player is not in a biome where a biome chest can be caught (i.e., not Corruption/Crimson, Hallow, Dungeon, or Jungle, and below sky level – examples could be the pure caverns or the Snow biome). With a Fishing Power of 100 and a lake of at least 300 valid water tiles, Iron Crates are then caught with a chance of 7/225 (3.1%; instead of 7/250 or 2.8%) and Wooden Crates with a chance of 14/225 (6.2%; instead of 7/125 or 5.6%).[1]
