A Bonus Chest is a chest with items that act as a starter kit. If the "Bonus Chest" option is set to "ON", a single bonus chest is generated within a few blocks of the player's initial spawn point, with up to four torches generated around it on adjacent blocks.

Bonus Chests are unable to generate in Hardcore Mode or on servers.
