Biome Chests are Hardmode Chests found within the Dungeon. Each contains one specific rare, powerful weapon, in addition to other miscellaneous items. While Biome Chests are placed during world creation, they are initially locked and can only be opened with an appropriate Biome Key, which will only become available in Hardmode.

Only Desktop version five / Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile version3DS version four Biome Chests (one of each type) will spawn in a particular world. Each represents a biome found in the current world. There are Desktop version six / Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile version3DS version five types of Biome Chests in total, though a world will only contain one evil biome chest, a Crimson or Corruption variant, depending on which of those biomes the world contains.

In order to open a Biome Chest, the following steps are required to take:

  1. Defeat Plantera for the first time to lift the curse from Biome Keys, allowing them to be used. As long as Plantera has not been killed, Biome Keys display the tooltip "It has been cursed by a powerful Jungle creature".
  2. Obtain the appropriate Biome Key by killing enemies within their respective biome. On Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DS version3DS, the keys are crafted using Key Molds dropped by these enemies.
  3. Return to the Dungeon and find the appropriate Chest for the key that was obtained.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Biome Key drops are extraordinarily rare, with a 0.04*1/2500 (0.04%) drop rate. It is likely that thousands of enemies have to be defeated to see one drop. With the right equipment and some time, a Biome Key farm can be set up in the biome to get there sooner.
  • Desktop version It is possible to get both the Corruption Chest and Crimson Chest if the player creates their world with the seed 05162020 which contains both evil biomes.
