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.

Gift Icon Downloadable ContentEdit

In the Shipwrecked DLC, two new types of boulders are introduced, the Charcoal Boulder and the Obsidian Boulder. Both can be found on the Volcano. While Charcoal Boulders provide Charcoal and Flint when mined, Obsidian Boulders cannot be mined with a Pickaxe, but only be destroyed with Explosives. It takes 6 Slurtle Slime (dropped in individual stacks) or 3 Gunpowder to break an Obsidian Boulder. Obsidian Boulders provide Obsidian when destroyed, and are also the only boulder type to respawn.

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

In Don't Starve Together, different Map icons for Gold Vein Boulders were introduced.

The Meteor Boulder has a rare chance to drop during a Meteor Shower, providing Rocks, Flint and Moon Rocks. During the first meteor shower in the world, a special Smooth Meteor Boulder will fall which is differentiated from regular Meteor Boulders by its round shape. Only one of this kind of boulder can be found, as it can be mined to produce the Celestial Orb.

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.

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.
