Players can find various types of chests as they explore the Krypt.

When you have the spear, make your way through the Krypt until you come across one of the flaming chests. After finding the chest, you’ll need to quench the flames that cover it. This can be done by looking around for a hanging fire pot lantern. These items can usually be found pretty close to the chest itself, though it could be anywhere in the area. All you need to do is look for one of these burning lanterns and hit it with Scorpion’s Spear. Doing this will put the fire pot out, also quenching the flames on the chest at the same time.

With the flames put out, return to the chest. You’re going to need Hearts to open these chests. Hearts are another currency that players can collect as they explore the Krypt. Like Koins, players will want to try to collect as much of this currency as they can, as this will allow them to open up more chests as they come across them.
