The Compass is an informational accessory that enables an on-screen display of the player's lateral position when equipped. Position is shown in the number of feet (1 foot = 1/2 tile) to the East or West of the center of the map. The center of the map is usually very close to the initial spawn point. In the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Compass has a 1.23% (1 in 83) chance to be dropped by Salamanders, Giant Shellys, and Crawdads, a 1.33% (1 in 75) chance to be dropped by Piranhas, and a 2% (1 in 50) chance to be dropped by Mother Slimes, Snow Flinxes, Undead Vikings, and Armored Vikings. On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, it has a 14.29% (1 in 7) chance to be dropped by Mimics. On the 3DS version 3DS version, it is unobtainable (no longer drops, but still exists), and is not functional.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This content is transcluded from Informational Accessories/note.Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions Unlike most accessories, informational accessories such as the Compass do not need to be equipped in an accessory slot. The Compass may be carried in the player's inventory without loss of functionality, unless equipped to a social slot. Additionally, the info it provides will be shared with nearby players of the same team in multiplayer. Keep in mind modifiers will no longer apply to the player when not equipped, however.
  • Unlike the "Level" depth, which is a single horizontal row of tiles (2 feet high), the 'Center' Position is actually two columns of tiles (4 feet wide). The actual center of the map is between those two columns.
  • The compass can drop from piranhas spawned from statues.
