  • It is advised to drop The Left Hand (by holding either CTRL key for few seconds, holding R2 or RT for 3 seconds on PS4 and Vita and Xbox One, respectively, or holding ZR on the New Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo Switch for a few seconds) before entering ChestChest, as non-Red Chests always contain item pedestals on this floor, especially the 4 located in the starting room.
    • (except in Repentance) Isaac may prefer Red Chests for their possible Soul HeartSoul Hearts or Red Chest items, at the expense of guaranteed items.
    • (in Repentance) Locked ChestLocked Chests converted in ChestChest's starting room will contain Devil Deals, potentially allowing for more powerful items, but at the cost of Hearts.
