Oh! A balloon.

Balloons spawn in a variety of colors and shapes, and they can be pushed around. Balloons have a small chance of distracting mobs (who will attack the balloons instead of the player). They will pop if attacked, or if a nearby balloon pops, setting off a chain reaction. Popping a balloon causes 5 damage. Like all Character-Specific Items, this item shows on the map when dropped.

Reign of Giants icon Reign of GiantsEdit

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Wes can give his Pile o' Balloons to a Catcoon in order to befriend it. If the Catcoon dies, he will be able to get it back.

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

In Don't Starve Together, Wes can craft Pile o' Balloons using 4 Water Balloons. The number of active balloons is capped to 100, and balloons last only 3 days. Wes must have at least 5 sanity to blow up a balloon. If the player is below 5 sanity the animation for activating the Pile o'balloons will play but no balloon will appear. If Pile o' Balloons is left on the ground for 3 days it will become 2 mosquito sacs.

Prototype TipsEdit

  • Balloons only pop when triggered and won't go away otherwise. This makes them a useful bait to place in the center of a trap field for Hounds or other hostiles.
  • Due to the 5 points of sanity drained with each balloon, using this item is a reliable way to go insane if the player wishes to farm Nightmare Fuel.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Wes got his Pile o' Balloons with the Strange New Powers update.
  • Wes can pop his balloons, but he will be damaged by them. It takes 23 balloons to kill him from full health.
