A sensible safety precaution.


Winona's Spotlight is a character-exclusive Structure craftable only by Winona in Don't Starve Together. It is found in the Engineering Tab and requires one Trusty Tape, two Gold Nuggets, and 1 Firefly to craft.

In order to work, it has to be within the area-of-effect of a powered Winona's Generator or a Winona's G.E.M.erator.

When in a certain radius (shown by a circle around it when placing it), the Spotlight will follow the player closest to it with a light source. If there are multiple Spotlights, they will prioritize having different targets from each other.

  • Winona's Spotlight gives an effective solution to surviving darkness in the player's base. As it will follow the player's movements, it is excellent for activities that would usually be harder to do at night. especially those that require a free hand, such as Farming or harvesting crops/trees.
  • While it might be tempting to depend on the Spotlight as a main light source, it does not give off temperature (making it poor during Winter or Summer), has a small radius, and is powered by Nitre, which is not as easily sustainable as Trees (since Boulders can run out and are only sporadically replenished through Meteors). The Spotlight is more effective for providing light while working, so its radius should cover the player's chest hoard or other structures.

  • During Rhymes with Play #228, some concepts for Winona's Spotlight were shown, including designs based on a lighthouse, rustic streetlamp, and a studio light.
