This article needs updating.
Description: No changes in history since 1.13, possibly update general info

This table summarizes the average quantity of each item that can be found in a naturally-generated chest, depending on its location. Template:LootChest


The meaning of these naturally generated chests is that the loot type has not yet been determined. The contents generate when a player interacts with the chest by opening it, placing a hopper under it, inserting an item using a hopper, or destroying it.

There are different kinds of loot tables, for example a desert temple or a Stronghold.


In 1.12 and below, the /setblock command can be used to place a chest. Use the command '/setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:chest 2 replace {LootTable:"chests/simple_dungeon"}' to set the chest. This command set a dungeon chest. This command can be used to generate a chest minecart with a loot table: '/summon chest_minecart ~ ~ ~ {LootTable:"chests/simple_dungeon"}'

Note that this artificial chest is random every time you place one, no matter the location. That is a difference between normal natural chests and artificial loot tables chests. You can set the seed of the loot table using LootTableSeed, by default it is the ?world seed?.
