For the Lunar Island variant, see Lunar Wobster.

The Wobster was introduced to Don't Starve Together in Return of Them. They spawn from Wobster Mounds during Dusk and Night. They can be used alive in a Crock Pot for their 1.0 fish and 1.0 meat value. Aside from all the fish and meat dishes they can be used for, they have two exclusive recipes: Lobster Bisque and Lobster Dinner. While both recipes excel at healing by granting 60 HP, the latter also gives 50 sanity and is Maxwell's favorite dish, providing him with additional 15 Hunger upon consumption.

They behave mostly like Ocean Fishes, as they can be caught with a Sea Fishing Rod and weigh between 153.67 and 307.34. Unlike the ocean fish, they don't resist and can easily be pulled with consistent reeling. If left on the ground for a small amount of time, they break free from their shock and hurry back into the nearest sea water similar to the behavior of released rabbits. They can be baited by any lure, but they have a special apathy towards seeds. Trying to catch them with seeds or without any lure applies a 0.25 multiplier to the attractiveness. As with other seawater fish, they can be kept alive inside a Tin Fishin' Bin, which can keep them fresh indefinitely. They can be weighed by the Pocket Scale and those that weigh in the top 30% percentile of their species can be gifted to the Crabby Hermit for her 5 Heavy Fish quest. They can also be displayed inside a Fish Scale-O-Matic.

Dead Wobster

A Dead Wobster is obtained by killing a Wobster. It can be cooked over a fire, but cannot be used in the Crock Pot.

Since Dead Wobsters and Delicious Wobsters fill the same amount of Hunger and Health, and since only the live Wobster can be used in Crock Pot dishes, the only reason to cook a Wobster is if the player wishes to keep it fresh for longer.

Delicious Wobster

  • To restore a live Wobster in the inventory to full freshness, it can be fed any food in the fish or meat category (including Monster Meat and Jellyfish). It can also eat Blubber or Eggs but not any Fruits or Vegetables.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • Being able to only use live Wobsters in the Crock Pot is a reference on how lobsters are often cooked in real life as they are put in boiling water alive.
  • The name, as implied by Wilson's quote, may be a reference to the Looney Tunes character Elmer Fudd's way of speaking, particularly when he refers to Bugs Bunny as a "Wascally Wabbit".
  • Wobsters were introduced to Don't Starve Together in the She Sells Sea Shells update. While the Wobsters retain their name from Shipwrecked, they have a darker coloration, and the two Wobster recipes that were ported from Shipwrecked were renamed as Lobster Bisque and Lobster Dinner.
  • Despite being caught in the same way as other ocean fish, being aquatic, and giving fish value in the crockpot Wobsters do not give Wurt a sanity regen effect for having one in her inventory, however a dead wobster does give the sanity draining effect from dead fish.
  • In 2023 Klei Developers mades Don't Starve holiday card wich shows Carrat on a Wobster, and wich was based on old victorian card Rat on Lobster.
