Boulders are large rocks commonly found in Savannas and Rockylands, although they may appear anywhere in the world. Their main purpose is to provide Rocks when mined, which can be used to build a number of objects/structures. A single Boulder will drop 3-5 Rocks. Additionally, Boulders may also provide Flint, Gold Nuggets, and Nitre. Boulders do not respawn; however, Rocks, Flint, Gold Nuggets, and Nitre are renewable resources because they can be found after Earthquakes while underground.


Boulders can be mined using the Pickaxe, Opulent Pickaxe, or Pick/Axe. To do this, click the tool on the Boulder or equip it from the inventory by right-clicking. Once the character has begun to swing the tool at the Boulder, either the LMB or Spacebar must be held or continuously clicked to continue mining.

It takes 6 strikes to mine a Boulder with a Pickaxe and Opulent Pickaxe, and 5 with the Pick/Axe. It depletes a normal Pickaxe's durability by 18%, Opulent Pickaxe's by 4.5%, and Pick/Axe's by 4%.


There are three types of Boulders that each have different loot. Boulder types are not shown on the map, (except for the Flintless one).

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve Together Edit

In Don't Starve Together, a new type of Boulder has a rare chance to drop during a Meteor Shower. It can be mined to yield 1 Rocks, 1 Flint, and 1.9 Moon Rock (60% to get 1 extra + 30% to get 1 extra).

Also, Evergreens may petrify after an unknown period of time, followed by an announcement from the character. Petrified Trees are mined instead of being chopped, and may result in Rocks, Nitre and Flint.

Shipwrecked icon Shipwrecked Edit

In Shipwrecked, 2 new types of boulders were added, both found on Volcano. The Obsidian Boulder cannot be mined/destroyed via Pickaxe, but can be destroyed with Explosives. Obsidian Boulder is also the only boulder type that respawns(other than Moon Rock Boulders). It takes 6 slurtle slime (dropped in individual stacks) or 3 gunpowder to break an obsidian boulder.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Meteor Boulders and Petrified Trees are considered to be part of A New Reign, even though they were introduced before the official start of the beta branch.
  • In the A Little Fixer Upper update, the textures for Moon Rocks, Meteor Boulders and all related items were updated.
