Guide to Chests



Introduction



The classic video game trope, chests are containers filled with goodies and placed randomly across levels, the contents of which can help you during your run. All opened chests (except for some types) will also yield you a small amount of data as a bonus.

Common



It’s impossible to play the game and not come across at least one of these for every map. Provides basic but useful aid.

Ammo Chest

Opening this chest grants the player a significant amount of ammo for all their weapons, added to their reserves. Experienced players will intentionally discard their non-empty magazines when their reserves allows it (can reload a full magazine and not too low that it’d be wasting too much) so they can get the most out of an ammo chest. Guaranteed to have two of these in every boss rooms, four in co-op; Final Stage has an uneven distribution of ammo crates per section but a lot of them overall. Still worth opening when you have full ammo to receive bonus data.

Health Chest

Restores a significant amount of health. Also upgrade carried healing items for a small amount of power and grant additional charges for vials/certain consumables, like Methadone. A little rarer than Ammo Chests. Still worth opening when you have full health to receive bonus data.

Wooden Crate

While not a traditional chest, every crate has a small chance to contain any unlocked powerup. Crates may be broken by any method, explosives do not destroy anything that might be inside. Doesn’t appear in Stage Three - VR Chambers and Final Stage (the one after Military Bay.)

Weapon Chest, Wood

This chest can contain any weapon that is not a class-specific starter weapon. 

Item Chest, Wood

This chest can contain any passive or active item, including non-class core starter items specific to the class the player is currently using.

Weapon Chest, Metal

Same as the wooden weapon chest, but indicates a higher rarity weapon, and may also require credits to open.

Item Chest, Metal

Same as the wooden item chest, but indicates a higher rarity item, and may also require credits to open.

Special



These are much rarer than Common chests, but you’d still come across some of them at some point.

Timed Weapon Chest

A weapon chest that must be opened within a limited time of entering the level, else a keycard must be spent to open them. Chests will still lock if the timer reaches zero whilst the chest is being opened.

Timed Item Chest

An item chest that must be opened within a limited time of entering the level, else a keycard must be spent to open them. Chests will still lock if the timer reaches zero whilst the chest is being opened.

Alarm Weapon Chest

A weapon chest that will alert all nearby enemies to the player's location, summon an elite enemy, and raise the overall terror level by 15 upon opening.

Cursed Weapon Chest

A weapon chest variant that will curse the character that opens it, dealing damage to the character down to 100 health, increasing incoming damage, and permanently reducing shields. The weapons from these chests are usually high in rarity and quality, and may come in stronger variants. A huge pentagram is drawn beneath it, just in case it wasn’t obviously cursed.

Cursed Item Chest

An item chest variant that will curse the character that opens it, dealing damage to the character down to 100 health, increasing incoming damage, and permanently reducing shields. The items from these chests are usually high in rarity and quality, and may come in stronger variants. A huge pentagram is drawn beneath it, just in case it wasn’t obviously cursed.

Mystery Chest

A chest that can contain an item, weapon, weapon upgrade kit, Armageddon shard, keycard (inc. Multi-Pass), core module, ammo, plating, or vial charge. May also require credits to open. Much more common than the rest of Special chests.

Weapon Upgrade Chest

Grants a 10% increase in damage to the currently equipped weapon.

Android Upgrade Chest

Similar to the Android Upgrade Module, provides a choice of three upgrades to the current character's core stats and abilities.

Rare



Incredibly rare chests that you will not get to see in every run. Naturally, they grant extraordinarily powerful bonuses to compensate.

Cross-Class Chest

Uncommon chest that gives a choice of three randomly-chosen class perks, from all classes.

Artifact Chest

Rare chest that grants a choice of an Artifact, chosen from of a random selection of either three or four. Can be stacked with artefact found from pieces!

Ammo Unlock Chest

Very rare chest that unlocks all weapon ammo types for all weapons.

Body Upgrade Chest

Rare, golden-glowing chest that gives two random body upgrades (permanent stat boosts) as well as 5000 experience; can be opened by both players in co-op.

Currency Chest

Provides a large amount of Data and Credits. Only found by killing a Treasure Roomba before it escapes.
