The Harpoon is a ranged Weapon in Shipwrecked DLC. It can be obtained from an exploding White Whale Carcass, it can also be found in X Marks the Spots. When this weapon is used to attack it will be thrown by the player. When it hits the target it will do 200 damage and drop beside what it hit, and must be picked up in order to be used again.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Due to its high damage, the Harpoon is a good choice for getting rid of high health Mobs that are dangerous to fight in melee.
  • A Harpoon can be used to destroy Beehives in a single shot, which doesn't give a chance for the Bees to defend their home.
  • Elephant Cactus takes two hits from a Harpoon to kill. With 10 uses, each Harpoon allows gathering 5 Elephant Cacti, making it an inventory efficient ranged weapon to collect the cacti from the Volcano.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Harpoon can be seen stabbed in the White Whale's head, which may be a reference to the novel Moby-Dick.
