The Howlitzer is a craftable Ranged Weapon exclusive to Don't Starve Together. It can only be crafted while next to the Brightsmithy. It requires 1 filled Spark Ark, 3 Brightshade Husks, 3 Pure Brilliance, and 3 Moon Rocks to craft and cannot be prototyped.

The Howlitzer is a blowpipe, and shoots its ammunition in a similar manner to Darts. However, unlike Darts, this item is not consumed when used. Similar to Walter's Trusty Slingshot, the Howlitzer doesn't have a durability; it can be loaded with Hound's Teeth as the ammunition in the same manner as Walter's Slingshot Ammo. On each use, 1 Hound's Tooth is consumed, and it deals 34 physical damage + 34 planar damage to the target.

  • Due to its range, damage, and infinite uses as long as Hound's Teeth are available, this item is the best ranged weapon once obtained.
  • By the time this item becomes available, which is after the defeat of the Celestial Champion and Lunar Rift activation, the player should have has a large number of Hound's Teeth lying around in their base already, ready for use as the ammunition.
    • Even in the situation where there are no Hound's Teeth left, as the Spark Ark is given to the players by Wagstaff after killing one of each Crystal Deerclops, Armored Bearger, and Possessed Varg, players are guaranteed to have at least some Hound's Teeth for going after the Varg and its summoned Hounds.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Howlitzer was introduced in the Host of Horrors update.
  • On beta release prior to update 576123, the Howlitzer did not drop the Spark Ark when deconstructed.
