Brogue Wiki

A reward room (or "vault") is a special room found on some floors the dungeon.

  • The first type of reward room is locked with an iron door. This door can only be opened with a key, located in a key holder room on the same floor. Keys are not interchangeable between iron doors, even on the same floor.
  • The second type has no locked door. Instead, access is done through a dangerous vestibule.
  • The third type is locked with a special map feature, such as a marble statue, portcullis, or wooden barricade.


The walls of a vault, including the iron door if there is one, are protected. They cannot be damaged or bypassed in any way, including but not limited to tunneling, burning, teleportation, drinking a Potion of Descent on the previous floor, etc.

The exception is a type of reward room which must be accessed by shattering or tunneling through a marble statue that does not benefit from this protection.
