Pile o' Balloons is a character-specific object belonging to Wes, placed in his inventory at the beginning of the game. It allows Wes to blow up balloons, at a cost of 5 Sanity each.

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.

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.

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.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
