Base cost: $400
There is one guaranteed spawn location in Abyssal Depths, nearby a small, yellow, glowing column, in a small cave full of foliage partially covered by a rock, ground-level, near the center of the map. It is also guaranteed to spawn in Sundered Grove, in one out of five different spots around the map.
Equipment Barrel[edit | edit source]
An Equipment Barrel costs as much as a Small Chest and always contains an Equipment.
Base cost: $25
Multishop Terminal[edit | edit source]
A Multishop Terminal features a choice out of three Items for you to buy, costing the same as either a Small Chest or a Large Chest, depending on the rarity. After buying one item the other items are locked and cannot be obtained from this Terminal anymore. A Question Mark indicates that the item in the corresponding slot will be a random item of that rarity.
Multishop Terminals that spawn on Wetland Aspect and Abandoned Aqueduct will sometimes sell Uncommon items, while ones that spawn on Abyssal Depths, Siren's Call and Sky Meadow will always sell Uncommon items.
Base cost for a common Multishop Terminal is the same as a Small Chest, and uncommon is the same as a Large Chest.
Equipment Triple Shop[edit | edit source]
An Equipment Triple Shop costs twice as much as a Small Chest. It is similar to a Multishop Terminal, but sells Equipment instead.
Base cost: $50
Category Chest[edit | edit source]
A Category Chest costs 20% more than a Small Chest and can come in three varieties: Damage, Healing, and Utility. Damage Category Chests contain Damage-based items, and so forth.
Base cost: $30
- Damage Chests are red, with a symbol of three bullets side-by-side emblazoned on top.
- Healing Chests are dark green, with a symbol of a white cross on top.
- Utility Chests are purple, with a symbol of what appears to be a "U" with a smaller circle inside it.
Adaptive Chest[edit | edit source]
An Adaptive Chest costs twice as much as a Small Chest and can only spawn from stage 3 onwards. Upon activation, the center portion raises up to reveal a small compartment, in which it begins to cycle through a variety of items at an accelerating rate. Any item can appear in this cycle, including Legendary items and Equipments at around the same frequency as a small chest. Activating it again will drop the item currently shown in the cycle. Allowing it to cycle for a long enough period of time will force it to spit out a random item instead of allowing you to choose.
Base cost: $50
- Pausing the game in single player will also pause the rotation of items in an Adaptive Chest. Therefore you can pause and unpause until you find the item you want, and spam Use upon unpausing again.
Rusty Lockbox[edit | edit source]
The Rusty Lockbox only spawns when a Survivor holds the Common item Rusted KeyGain access to a Rusty Lockbox that contains a powerful item.
A hidden cache containing an item (80%/20%) will appear in a random location on each stage. Opening the cache consumes this item.. It does not cost Gold to open.
- At least one survivor in the party must possess a Rusted Key for it to spawn (guaranteed spawn), but a key is required to open the Rusty Lockbox.
- At each stage a lockbox will appear for each player with a rusty key. The box cannot spawn on Hidden Realms.
- It is easier to find a Rusty Lockbox while the Teleporter is being charged, because they get locked with orange tendrils like other types of storage as well.

Cloaked Chest[edit | edit source]
A Cloaked Chest is an invisible chest that can be found in all Environments. In contrast to other chests, this one does not have to be purchased. However, it is very difficult to see, being completely transparent, only slightly distorting the background.
- Cloaked Chests get locked while the Teleporter is getting charged, so try to spot them at this point.
- Keep an eye out for the "Open Cloaked Chest" prompt that appears when you walk by one.
- It is possible to scan cloaked chests using the Radar ScannerReveal all nearby interactables.
