History
Introduced Beginning of Battle Royale

Chest is a loot cache object in Battle Royale. Chests are scattered throughout the map. Interacting with a chest causes it to be looted, spreading the contents on the ground to be picked up. There are six types of chests, two of which are Creative exclusive. It gives 130 XP upon being opened so you can level up

Chest Types

Standard Chest

Contains any gun ranging from Uncommon to Legendary (Formerly Common to Legendary). It contains ammo for the weapon, thirty materials, and a consumable.

Rare Chest (aka Super Chest, Mythic Chest, or Legendary Chest)

Is like the standard version, but it contains any weapon Epic or Legendary. It also contains two consumables rather than one. It was introduced in Chapter 2 Season 1 and appears randomly across the map. There is a small chance they can appear instead of a normal chest. This chest will give metal instead of wood when broken.

Freezers

Are different from normal chests both in terms of appearance and the loot they contain. When a Freezer is searched, it releases one or two Fishes (2 Small Frys, 1 Flopper or 1 Slurpfish), making it the only chest type to contain Fish. When opened during the Winterfest event, Snowball Launchers could also be found. Freezers can be found in restaurants, kitchens, and similar places.

Faction Chest (aka Henchmen Chest)

Is a chest type added in Chapter 2 Season 2. The chest can be found in either Spy Locations around the map, or random locations around the map. Some of the chests are unlocked regularly while some have ID Scanners that lock the chest. ID Scanners are devices set on doors or a Henchmen Chest, allowing only Henchmen to open them. Players can open them by knocking a Henchman and carrying them to a Locked Henchmen Chest, or by using a Phone Booth to disguise as Henchmen and open the Locked Henchmen Chest.

Bunker Chest

Is a chest type added in Chapter 2 Season 6. The chest can be found around the map but mostly in named POI's. These chests contain Rare, Epic and Legendary Weapons and also contain Materials, Healing Items and Consumables. Epic and Legendary Rocket Launchers also can only be obtained here in regular matches.

Vaulted Chest Types

Block Chest

Was a chest that was added in Season 7. The chest was only found at The Block and would give a Legendary weapon and some items like the Chug Jug. However, The Block was removed from the map and thus is vaulted and only available in Creative. As of now, it drops Epic or Legendary weapons and acts like a Rare Chest.

Borderlands Chest

Was a chest that was briefly added in Season X as part of the Fortnite X Borderlands crossover. This chest replaced all chest locations in Pandora and acted just like normal chests. The chest would also drop cash, which was soon vaulted after a while. It was vaulted soon after the Borderlands collaboration ended. It gives metal when broken.
