The Golden Lock Box is a grab bag-type item which can be obtained from Dungeon or Stockade Crates with a 100% / 16.67*1/6 (16.67%) chance. It always contains one rare item normally found in locked Gold Chests in the Dungeon, and on the Old Chinese version Old Chinese version and tModLoader 1 tModLoader 1.3-Legacy version, a random assortment of common items ranging from Healing Potions to Gold Coins. It requires one Golden Key to open, which can be obtained from any Dungeon enemy, generally a Dungeon Slime.

Due to the fact players will likely have several remaining keys even after unlocking every single locked chest in the dungeon, the Lock Box can prove useful for obtaining more loot, especially if there was a dungeon-exclusive item that did not spawn in a player's world.

  • On the special seed 05162020, players can obtain Dungeon and Shadow Chest gear pre-Skeletron by opening Golden Lock Boxes.
  • If the player does not have high defense or a Cobalt Shield, they may have trouble fishing, due to the increased enemy spawn rate that will constantly damage and knock them.
    • To combat this, the player should break all nearby Water Candles, replace them with Peace Candles, and/or drink a Calming Potion to decrease enemy spawn rate.
    • The player may also choose to box themselves in with blocks to avoid melee-based enemies, though this has no effect on enemies with wall-piercing attacks, such as the Dark Caster and Cursed Skull.
