Chests are boxes in Clash Royale that offers items such as Gold, cards, Gems, and more. They're perfect for giving you the tools you need to unlock new cards, upgrade existing ones, obtain new cosmetics, and generally further your in-game progress.

Lucky for you, there are various Chests available. Each one offers different types of rewards and various ways you can obtain them. The best part is that they're relatively easy to get in the game as they're the primary source for most in-game items. Suffice it to say that you're spoilt for choice when it comes to them.

Here's an overview of all the currently available Chests in Clash Royale.

The rewards offered vary with each Chest and also with your Arena level (for some). Needless to say, the better the Chest's rewards, the harder they are to get. That being said, there are various ways you can get Chests. These include winning games, completing tasks, purchasing them from the Shop, and more.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to instantly reap the rewards of your Chests - at least, not for all of them. There will be a waiting period, also known as an 'unlock time', that you will have to endure before the Chest is opened. If patience isn't your strongest virtue or you desperately need the rewards, you can skip the wait by opening them with Gems.

But now that the fundamentals are out of the way, we can finally go over all the Chests in Clash Royale. We'll be taking a look at the Chest types, the rewards available in them, their respective unlock times, and how you can get them.
