Rotten Eggs are consumable Desktop versionOld-gen console version3DS version ranged / Console VersionMobile version throwing weapons obtained commonly from Goodie Bags, which are dropped during the Halloween season. They explode on impact, with no chance of being retrieved.

Rotten Eggs are unique in that they are the only player-wielded weapons that can damage friendly NPCs by default. (The Clothier and Guide Voodoo Dolls allow killing their respective NPCs, but are not wielded as weapons.) They are a slow but effective way of killing NPCs.
