Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The worms contained in the Can of Worms can be used as fishing bait.
  • If you wish to sell a Can of Worms, be sure to open it first, as its contents will sell for much more than the Can itself.
  • In Journey Mode, you can research two Can Of Worms, then duplicate and open until you can research Gold Worm. This can be done easily and early in the game, and doing so, you'll have access to an excellent bait, with 50% Bait Power (on par with the best baits of the game), and Golden Delight, which is the best food in the game, giving 48 minutes of Exquisitely Stuffed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its name is likely a reference to the idiom "Opening a can of worms".
