Deerclops Eyeball is a food item dropped by the Deerclops. It is similar to a Guardian Horn. Both are dropped by a boss, unable to spoil, and restore health and hunger but decrease sanity.

As a meat item, Pigs or Spiders will eat it if left on the ground, and Bunnymen will attack the player on sight if they are carrying it. The eye does not spoil and cannot be Cooked.

A Deerclops Eyeball can be used as a crafting material; it is required to make the Houndius Shootius. It can also be used as emergency food, granting 60 Health Meter.png, 75 Hunger Meter.png, and draining 15 Sanity Meter.png.

In all DLCs, the Deerclops Eyeball can now stack up to 10 in the player's Inventory.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, it can also be used to craft the Eyebrella. If the player obtains their first Deerclops Eyeball, prioritizing the Eyebrella craft is crucial towards survival during the players first Spring, due to the constant rain and lightning strikes.

In the Hamlet DLC, Deerclops Eyeballs can be bought for 50 Oincs at 'The Sty' Oddities Emporium.

Prototype.png Tips

  • If the player obtains their first Deerclops Eyeball, prioritizing the Eyebrella craft is crucial towards survival during the player's first Spring, due to the frequent rain and lightning strikes.
    • Furthermore, this item can prove useful during the first Summer, since it can delay overheating by a surprising amount. Using some Sewing Kits can let the player keep the Eyebrella in good condition, letting it last long enough until Autumn comes.
    • If used sparingly, an Eyebrella could easily last an entire year with little or no repairs. With the use of a Sewing Kit, a single Eyebrella could last multiple years, allowing the player to stock up on Deerclops Eyeballs for a Houndius Shootius, or a spare Eyebrella incase the first one is lost.
  • Players can use the Hostile Flare to fight Deerclops more than once per Winter season, with the goal to acquire more than one Deerclops Eyeball.
