Do you have any idea how much this suit cost?


When thrown it puts out fires in a small area where it lands.

It will also cool targets 5 degrees and adds 20 wetness.

-Scrapbook Description

The Water Balloon is a craftable Item exclusive to Don't Starve Together. It can be used to extinguish Fires by throwing it at the fire. It can be crafted with a Science Machine using 2 Mosquito Sacks and 1 Ice, which gives the player 4 water balloons. Alternatively, mosquito sacks can be filled at Ponds, however this only yields a single water balloon.

In addition to putting out fires in a small area, it also protects objects from catching fire for 30 seconds, subtracts 5 degrees from players' temperatures, and adds 20 Wetness. However, only the players and the Dragonfly can get wetness from water balloons. If a player is 100% waterproof the water balloon won't burst upon contact and will simply roll away, essentially wasting it.

Prototype.png Tips

  • Water Balloons can also be useful when fighting the Dragonfly, since players can throw them at themselves and at others players to cool them down and extinguish them if they are hit by Lavae.
  • Water Balloons are also very useful when used in conjunction with a Morning Star, Electric Darts, or Volt Goat Chaud-Froid.
  • In PvP, getting these early is very effective against WX-78.
  • Water balloons can be used to moisturize farm soil.

  • Because they add wetness (which can cause freezing and insanity) and can be used to extinguish fires at night, Water Balloons could be used to kill other players even outside of PvP.
