Sandstorms are naturally occurring events exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. They happen during Summer in Desert Biomes containing the Oasis and the Antlion.

When entering a Desert during a Sandstorm, the player's Field of Vision will instantly be limited, disabling the ability to see anything but a small area around the character. Additionally, movement speed will be reduced by 60%. In order to avoid becoming blind to the Sandstorm, one must be equipped with Desert Goggles.

During rain, sandstorms will temporarily cease until after the ground is dry from the rain.

Prototype TipsEdit

  • Smoldering objects will be extinguished while the sandstorm is active, this can be used to the player's advantage. It will also prevent Wildfires this way.
