The Spear is a melee weapon crafted from the Fight tab. It requires 1 Flint, 1 Rope, and 2 Twigs to craft and a Science Machine to prototype. It can also be found near the walled area where the Box Thing lies.

The Poison Spear is a craftable weapon exclusive to the Shipwrecked DLC. It does the same damage as a Spear and poisons the target on hit.

Poisoned enemies move slower, attack less often, and deal less damage. However, the food items that drop from poisoned enemies will have their freshness reduced to 50%.

Obsidian Spear is a craftable Weapon exclusive to the Shipwrecked DLC. It can be crafted using 1 Spear, 3 Obsidian, and 1 Dragoon Heart, however doing so requires an Obsidian Workbench or a Brain of Thought. Both the Obsidian Spear and its Blueprint are possible rewards from X Marks the Spot treasure chests. 

Initially, the Obsidian Spear deals the same damage as a Tentacle Spike per hit, but as the Obsidian Spear is used to attack, it will become charged causing it to deal up to 2x damage when fully charged. It takes approximately 30 hits to reach full charge. As the charge level increases, the Obsidian Spear will also produce more heat and light, which protects the players from Charlie, but can cause Overheating. If dropped into water while sailing, the Obisidian Spear will lose all of its charge. It should be noted that it has a very high durability, 2.5x that of the regular Spear. 

Players should take caution when using an Obsidian Spear with high levels of charge, as the targeted Mob is likely to be killed by fire damage causing any Meat drops to be cooked and other loot to drop as Ashes.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

Spear[edit | edit source]

  • The Spear was added in the (unnamed) October 2, 2012 update.
  • In the old research system, the Spear used to cost 100 Science Points to craft and had a value of 1-10 Science Points depending on its durability when used on a Science Machine.
  • An unused spear attack animation called "spearjab" would have been used for spears instead of the normal attack animation, if it were not removed.

Poison Spear[edit | edit source]

Old icon.
  • Prior to Hang Ten update Poison Spear's icon look just like regular spear with its tip being green.
  • Like in every other case, crafting doesn't consider durability of an item, making a 1% Spear just as good as a 100% one, effectively letting the player use a spear almost twice as long.

Obsidian Spear[edit | edit source]

  • The bonus damage given off by the spear when charged, is not affected by character multipliers, in turn making it a poor weapon choice for characters like Wolfgang, but a fantastic choice for characters like Wes or Wendy who benefit from this.
  • The Obsidian Spear, along with the Obsidian Axe and Obsidian Machete, will still gain charges when used in Winter.
    • As the weapon gains charges, the heat and light that it provides makes it an effective weapon to use during the long and cold winter nights. However, since it requires an attackable target to be charged, it may be preferable to carry around an Obsidian Axe and cut down Trees instead.
  • The weapon can be charged safely by attacking passive Creatures that can regenerate health such as Chester or Packim Baggims. However, the high damage of the weapon combined with the relatively low health and slow regeneration of the companions makes this process impractical. However, a more practical method is attacking a Lureplant and replanting the Fleshy Bulb when it dies, this way the weapons can be charged with little to no risk.
