The Moose/Goose Egg is an object in the Reign of Giants DLC. During Spring, Moose/Goose will wander off to lay an egg. The egg radiates electricity and can be struck with a Hammer 4 times to cause it to hatch, otherwise if the Moose/Goose is left alone, it will hatch on its own. Each strike with the Hammer deals 10 damage to the player. A Weather Pain can be used to hatch the egg from a distance without taking damage. 5 Moslings will hatch from the egg and attack if the player gets too close.

Once the Egg hatches, the small nest will remain behind, giving Moose/Goose the possibility to lay another Egg. At the end of Spring, both the egg and the nest will despawn.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The egg will randomly alternate between being called a "Moose Egg" and a "Goose Egg".

Mosquito.png Bugs

  • Occasionally, the Moose/Goose will spawn, and no egg will spawn, even if left alone for days.
  • Spawning in this item spawns an empty nest. To fix this, you need to add the 'InitEgg()' variable to the end. Eg: 'c_spawn("mooseegg"):InitEgg()'
  • Occasionally a Moose/Goose egg that did not hatch while the Moose/Goose was still alive will remain in place, unhatched through all the seasons. Using wormholes, moving many screens away or relogging will not cause the egg to hatch or despawn.
  • Dying by hammering the egg will result in the morgue listing the death as "Shenanigans".
