-Scrapbook Description

W.O.B.O.T. is an unique Item/Mob exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in the From Beyond updates. It can be found broken laying on the floor of the Junk Yard. To make it work, it has to be repaired with an Auto-Mat-O-Chanic.

W.O.B.O.T. can be carried like an item in the inventory. When placing it on the ground, W.O.B.O.T. will collect nearby items from the floor and put them in a Chest if any of these already contains one of the specific items. This also works for almost all other containers like Scaled Chests, Ice Boxes, Salt Boxes, Chester, all kinds of Backpacks, and all kinds of portable inventory containers like the Tackle Box or Polar Bearger Bin. However, it cannot put items into the Magician's Chest or into the Tin Fishin' Bin, as W.O.B.O.T. cannot enter Boats. It can only collect one kind of item at once and only up to its stacksize limit, so reaching the limit will force it to store the stack before collecting the next stack or other items.

When W.O.B.O.T. is working, its durability will decrease, indicated by two other visual states when reaching 40% and 20% durability, also lowering the walking speed. After a total of 16 minutes of work it will turn into its broken stage again and have to be repaired again. Rain decreases its durability faster. W.O.B.O.T. operates in a radius of 3.75 tiles (15 wall units) from the point it was placed.

W.O.B.O.T. can be equipped with any head gear item, granting the item's effects like Wetness protection, so W.O.B.O.T.'s durability loss due to Rain can be lowered or nullified. To get the head gear item back, W.O.B.O.T. just needs to be picked up.

When entering the Caves or leaving the server, W.O.B.O.T. will drop from the players inventory. For the case it drops into the Ocean, it will spawn on land in its broken stage.
