Not to be confused with the Golden ChestDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions, a drop from the Pirate Invasion.

The Gold Chest is a naturally-generated chest, with various loot as its contents. Each chest includes one special item, as well as some coins and other more common items. Gold Chests are found in Underground Cabins in the Underground, Cavern, and Underground Jungle, and are also found as Locked Gold Chests in the Dungeon. Locked Gold Chests require one Golden Key each to open.

Apart from the initial items, Gold Chests function identically to other chests. Removing all items from a Gold Chest will allow it to be freed or broken with a pickaxe or drill. It can then be picked up, placed, and used just like any other chest, with 40 slots of storage space. There are only three minor differences to other chests: Gold Chests cannot be crafted and are only generated on world creation at the random locations; they can also be sold to an NPC at 10, which is more than the standard chest, which only sells for 1. Gold Chests have a sparkle effect when exposed to a light source, similar to coins.

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 primary item and an assortment of randomly chosen common items. The primary 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 primary items, at 5%.
  • If a chest contains a Flare Gun, it also contains Flares.
  • A Golden Chest without a Cabin can spawn above underground (but not really on the surface) and can still contain its regular loot, although this is very rare.
  • The bars it contains will depend on the ore types available in the current world.
