Spelunky Wiki

The Locked Chest is a special chest that is found either level 1-2 or 1-3 of the Dwelling.

The Locked Chest stores the Udjat Eye. It can only be opened using the Gold Key, found on the same level, or the Skeleton Key item.

Throwing the Locked Chest against a wall causes the same loud metal sound Punish Balls make.

Locating the Locked Chest

The Locked Chest is always found in a backlayer room accessed via a small wooden structure in either level 1-2 or 1-3. It cannot be taken out from this area, as it cannot go through backlayer doors.
