Water Chests in pools of water underground

Water Chests are a type of Chest that can be found in pools of water greater than 250 tiles, most notably in the Ocean, more rarely underground, and occasionally even in Floating Lakes(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). In addition to containing common chest loot based on where they are found, there are special items that can only be found in these chests, listed below.

  • Water Chests have the same possible drops regardless of the biome they were generated in.
    • Water Chests that spawn in Ocean caves(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) have equal chances of containing every primary item.
  • The only time Water Chests can spawn in anything other than water is on the secret world seed "Not the bees", where most water is replaced with honey.
  • On the Celebrationmk10 secret world seed, Water Walking Boots are increased to a 1/7 (14.29%) chance, which reduces the chance of getting any of the other primary items.
