The Beach Ball is a novelty item. Using it creates an interactive beach ball for players to bounce around. After Desktop VersionConsole Version3DS logo.svg 2 seconds of sitting still Mobile only.pngor coming to a full stop and then being tapped, it reverts to its item form which can be picked up and reused.

If the Beach Ball is 'hit' more than 10 times without it touching the ground, a status message appears saying 'Beach Ball was hit X times before hitting the ground.'

The Beach Ball in action

Physics[edit | edit source]

  • The Beach Ball reacts to blocks, doors, and liquid as boundaries and will bounce off them normally.
  • When touching players, the ball reacts as though it were struck, repelling away with increased velocity. This occurs even for players standing still, but more so if they are in motion, which can easily send the ball flying off-screen.
  • The Beach Ball is not affected by NPCs or furniture, and weapons or tools used on them will simply pass through without interacting.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If the Beach Ball travels off the left or right edges of the map, it often cannot be retrieved, and presumably despawns.
  • The Beach Ball is considered a projectile, and will therefore activate Teal Pressure Pads.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Many players used to call the Beach Ball "every speedrunner’s dream Item."

History[edit | edit source]

  • 1.2: Introduced.
