Chests are objects that appear in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle. They are rewards that the player receives over the course of the game.
There are nineteen different chests in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, which can be split into six different categories:
Free Chests are available every 4 hours and are the most basic kind of chest. A player can hold up to two Free Chests at a time. Each Free Chest contains 3 Red Star Rings.
|Chest||Rewards in Tier 1||Rewards in Tier 2||Rewards in Tier 3||Rewards in Tier 4||Rewards in Tier 5||Rewards in Tier 6||Rewards in Tier 7|
There are four different kinds of Battle Chests: 1st Place Chest, 2nd Place Chest, 3rd Place Chest, and 4th Place Chest. Players can obtain twenty Battle Chests per day (one per battle) and receive them depending on how they place after finishing a race. Getting 1st place ensures them the 1st Place Chest containing the greatest number of cards while finishing in 4th place will award the player a 4th Place Chest with the least number of cards.
|Chest||Rewards in Tier 1||Rewards in Tier 2||Rewards in Tier 3||Rewards in Tier 4||Rewards in Tier 5||Rewards in Tier 6||Rewards in Tier 7||Other Rewards|
*Only when a sub-event is active.
Victory Chests are awarded to players who place 1st and 2nd in races. There is no limit to how many Victory Chests one can obtain in a day, but one can only hold four chests at a time. After obtaining them, the Victory Chests must be unlocked in order to obtain its rewards. To unlock a Victory Chest, the player must select it, and then must either wait for a certain amount of time which the chest is unlocked afterwards, spend Red Star Rings in order to unlock them immediately, or view an advertisement to unlock them immediately (for Silver Chests only). When unlocking via the first method, only one Victory Chest can be unlocked at a time, although its Red Star Ring cost decreases in proportion to the amount of time waited, allowing the player to still unlock the Victory Chest by spending a reduced cost of Red Star Rings. Any other Victory Chests can still be unlocked via the second method.
There are four different kinds of Victory Chests (from worst to best): Silver Chest, Gold Chest, Platinum Chest, and Emerald Chest. Getting 1st place in a race does not guarantee a rarer variety of the received chest. Emerald Chests are the rarest chest in the game, followed by Platinum Chests as the second rarest, with Gold and Silver Chests being third and fourth rarest, respectively.
|Chest||Unlock Time||Rewards in Tier 1||Rewards in Tier 2||Rewards in Tier 3||Rewards in Tier 4||Rewards in Tier 5||Rewards in Tier 6||Rewards in Tier 7|

*Formerly the Diamond Chest.
Season Chests are awarded at the end of every season, with the quality of the chest depending on which Tier the player was in at the end of the season. To qualify for a season chest, the player must finish first in a race at least three times while being in Tier 4 or higher.
