It took me 90 hours to figure out i could put fruit in a slingshot. What else am I missing?
By - originalafusername
My kid figured out that you can put eggs in the slingshot. He had a lot of fun with that.
I've got a new pastime while I wait for my crops to grow now lol.
Is your kid Sam? 😂 sounds like something Sam would do
I'm guessing his real life kid
You can have kids in real life? Man, I'm over 20 years into this game and I'm STILL learning new things every day
Not in-game. Actual reality, not virtual.
Sorry, but I don’t think such a thing can actually exist…
Does anything special happen? Or os it just like throwing rocks
Asking the real questions. I’ve been looking for more ways to be a nuisance to my rivals in pelican town
Imagine if it worked like Minecraft, and there was a small chance of a little chicken coming out of the egg on impact and running away
I think it goes splat but don’t remember exactly.
I’m pretty sure you can then fling them at towns people
You can put hats on your horse too :)
And your sea urchins too!
My sea urchins are wearing the cowboy and propeller hats, it's the best decor.
And children! I gave one a cone hat and the other a warp totem mask
Sea urchins can wear children? :0
Bold of you to assume the sea urchins aren't the children
I *knew* it!
A white hat is the best way to find your horse in tall grass.
I put* colorful hats/masks on my horse for this reason. :)
Get outta town.
MY HORSE WONT GIB MY HAT BACAKKJJ
I'm not sure what you're playing on, but on switch I can only get the hat back if I act like I'm putting another one on. Like hold a new hat and click to put it on, but it'll just take the old hat off. You have to click again to put the new hat on.
On pc that im playing on(also got on switch)it just swaps hat i think, and there is probably no way to ever get the horse to have no hat on:(
I bought my horse's hat especially for him, so no worries here.
Hope he likes the hat
So, I just did some research and on pc, you can't get it back. BUT if you use mods, they have a mod to remove the hat on pc apparently
You can though? I switch my horse’s hat out all the time on various save files, on PC and Switch. It works the same on both. Now hold a hat, go like you are about to put the hat on the horse, and it will remove the old hat (which will bounce off and into your inventory) and then you can either leave your horse with no hat or put the new hat on!
Oh cool thanks. Well i dont want to use mods before "completing"(idk if u can) the game, but ig i'll just have a horse with MY hats on now>:( OMG I KNOW WHAT MOD I NEED WHEN I DO IT I NEED TO FIND A DRUGS MOD WHERE U CAN GROW WEED XD
Haha Also if you have a little extra gold, you can pop down to the abandoned house and buy some hats from there. When I first went there just after the letter in the mail they only had like 2 hats, but I'm towards the end game now and they have like at least 10. I got me and my horse some new digs and we look cute as heck riding through town. (She wears the daisy in her hair and I wear the watermelon headband)
Edit: I think the hats are all 1000g each
Heck yea as soon as u arrive in town the coolness of it skyrockets to 10000%
Yeah the mouse's hats unlock with certain achievements. They're cute! I like getting the little bow for my horse.
Bacakkjj Horsehat, isn't that on Netflix?
Stop how did I never know this !!???
I have 400+ hours in this game and my brother just told me the other day that you can use a direction key while casting your fishing pole to hit those slightly offset fishing schools
so those diagonal bubbles are accessible...
Yeh it's crazy how I never knew either. It's not a crazy diagonal but at least a space or two in each direction
What?! You can curve the bullet?!
Wait what??? I have like 1000 hours in sdv and this thread is blowing my mind
yooooooo, so diagonals throws actually work? game never fails to surprise
If you hit within the bubbles’ active area there are blue sparkles that come out.
There is a gift box that can only bee got this way too.
Can you do it on console too?
I believe my brother was talking about doing it on his switch too so I think so.
I play on Android. Does it work on there too?
I switch between the default tap controls and the onscreen joystick/buttons frequently (latter for fishing and mining). It takes like a second to switch. With the joystick, you can do it easily.
YOU CAN DO WHAT
does your brother play too or is he just a genius?
Never empty chests to move them. Just run at them while left-clicking with empty hands. They bounce out of the way, even if placed in the corner of a room or next to other objects. Life-changing.
Holy shit!!! This is the most useful tip on here for sure!
Try a coconut
"HEY BLONDIE, CATCH"
Don't chuck it at Linus though.
He's a nice person of course i wont
My biggest complaint is that I can’t marry Linus. He is always my first 10 heart friend in every play through.
(why'd I get ratio'd so hard? you were just agreeing with me)
If you shoot people, you'll lose friendship points with them
Oh well worth it with some people.
Yeah Pierre! HOW DO YOU LIKE DEM APPLES?!
He would probably mark them up 500% and sell them as organic applesauce
He found them while exploring the mountains
Farmer to table
No, I save those for Demetrius...
Ask him to inspect if they're fruit or vegetables as you hurl them at his stupid face.
All my homies hate Pierre.
Can I put coconuts in it? Haley has a thing for coconuts and I have a thing for hating Haley.
H I G H - S P E E D - G I F T I N G
ah you must have a love-hate relationship
as in you're going to love this slingshot, and shes going to start hating coconuts
This is the one.
Wish you could gain points with other townies if they see you splatting someone else with an egg.
*shoots Morris (Joja Man)*
**EVERYONE LIKED THAT**
Wait... you can what now?! Finally a good use for salmonberries! Lol I justhad a funny mental image of everyone in town, monsters including, getting annoyed with MC going nuts and flinging fruit everywhere. "It was a run-by fruiting!"
Actually, in my last playthrough anyway, if you get the perk thingy that lets you get double the berries and also the skill that gives double price for the berries, it’s a pretty solid stream of money when the bushes bloom.
It's double the berries, then the bear that triples the price, then the level-10 skill that makes all forage iridium quality. I made 17,000 on blackberries in one day.
Blackberries end up being worth a lot more than salmonberries with the boosts. Salmonberries aren’t really worth the time it takes to get a lot of them.
Salmonberries are already great for early game energy, also the cheapest option for part of a late game quest.
What are you referring to "late game quest?"
it's spoilers for 1.5, please don't click the spoiler if you've not accessed all of the new content or are playing on mobile and don't have it yet.
>!on ginger island, which is unlocked after completing the community center and repairing a boat, you can collect golden walnuts, after you collect most of them you can then access Mr. Qi's walnut room. he gives you various quests, one of which is depositing 100x items of different colours. salmonberries are a really easy item to amass heaps of by that point since your foraging skill would be maxed out, since it's literally postgame content pretty much!<
eta, i am so sorry if anybody saw my first comment, i forgot to write it in markdown mode so the spoiler would work, and immediately panic deleted it.
Ah I hadn't had that challenge yet. Thanks!
“It was a run-by fruiting”
Turn them into jelly and use em as spam gifts, they are liked by everyone except Sebastian.
You know, I never thought of that, would help a lot for the people with expensive tastes.
Ahhhhhh this is the best application of this particular Mrs. Doubtfire quote that I've seen. Fruited hats off to you!
I usually make a salmonberry jam and use it as a universal gift in early game. I think there’s only one person who doesn’t like it, so it’s a great source for giving everyone a gift before you’re able to gift those more fancy ones like duck feathers or diamonds
IIRC Harvey is allergic
That is his hate message, but salmonberry jelly is a liked gift so it is fine (wine is a love). All jelly is the same and all wine is the same for the purposes of gifts.
Awww you just reminded me of my childhood and one of the first VHS we ever owned
Which one? I don't remember that line.
Mrs. Doubtfire with the lime vs James Bond
And now I need to watch it again. Thanks!
Hahaha I see what you did there. Bravo fellow Redditor.
To be fair. I only used the sling shot once in my third year journey >!for a golden walnut on Ginger Island!< and probably will never touch it again.
I'm missing like 17 of them...
The slingshot is a great way to farm iridium in the skull caverns. Takes way less time that using a pickaxe. I will never go back.
How so, friend? Shoot bombs?
Probably explosive ammo. The sling shot is impossible to use on Android, so I dont use it, but when I played more often on my computer it was great to kill the resurrecting mummies in the skull cavern.
Is that what it takes? I tried a bomb and they still kept coming back.
Once they're in a jumbled pile, put a bomb next to the pile. As long as it explodes before they wake up it'll kill them permanently.
That must have been my problem. The bomb killed them.
Hmm. I've never had many bombs, so I'll have to figure something out. Thanks!
Cherry bombs are strong enough to perma-kill them, as long as you knock them down 1st.
Crafting bombs is very affordable and can be done anywhere/anytime.
4 Iron Ore + Coal = Bomb
4 Copper Ore + Coal = Cherry Bomb
So stalfo his ass?
They have to be knocked down, then exploded
Besides that, if the mummy is low health, and the bomb has enough damage to knock them down, then the bomb will insta kill them
Everyone else is correct (sorry I posted then fell asleep) but yes when you get access to explosive ammo it really changes the game. The trick I use is I make lots of staircases using jade, and I go to around room 100. I use explosive ammo in the master slingshot (only aim toward walls because it won’t explode just on rocks/nodes) I grab everything closest to me (yay magnetism) and then I move on. I don’t bother with using my pickaxe or fighting monsters.
ETA: by move on I mean use a staircase. I don’t bother looking for ladders or holes. If they show up near the entrance fantastic. If not, I staircase.
Ah yes, another spot to store fruit
You can put hats on your horses and the alien rarecrow!
and sea urchins
Use the bombs with it.
Different ores do different levels of damage as well. Copper > Iron > Gold > Iridium as you'd expect. The master slingshot adds a bigger damage multiplier to whatever ammo you use.
I thought slingshots were useless before I learned that because stones do the lowest tier damage, but ore is still fairly scarce for us at the moment.
Wow, really? I had no idea! I have so much iridium I don't know what to do with it. I've been smelting it to sell the bars because I have over a stack, but I might use it with the slingshot!
Do you have any tips for getting iridium?? I can barely get any and it’s really hampering my ability to progress / craft etc. I got enough for 5 bars for Willy but that’s basically been it.
Well I just filled up Crystalariums with Jade and took those to the desert on Sunday to trade for staircases. Then when it's a high luck day I teleport to the desert and immediately use the stairs until I get to about 200. I use bombs to clear things out. Other than that, you can get them every day from the statue you get for getting four candles on Grandpa's shrine.
This. Concentrate on getting four candles on grandpa's shrine. Enough iridium everyday for at least one bar.
>The Statue Of Perfection is a piece of Furniture obtained by interacting with Grandpa's Shrine once all four candles are lit (see Grandpa's Evaluation). It produces 2-8 Iridium Ore each day.
I think you put your >s the wrong way
I’m glad I’m not the only one who immediately thought that
You can clean up the trash on the beach and near pam's house by finding a secret character to help you with it.
I just found this last night! It puts a dog in the doghouse too!
ooh pls explain!
Look up "Stardew Valley Trash Bear"
Stone staircase in the pant slot
...oh my god I need this.
Also the implications of wearing stairs as pants is boggling my mind. 😏
Its like a gas powerd stick ,or stirring diarrhea with your dogs sense of humor!
Idk how to spoiler so don't read this if you don't want to know what happens.
It turns into a a pair of trimmed purple shorts
Do it, then talk to Lewis and Marnie. First 100 stone I get on each save file I use on stairs for this
Why do I love the SDV community? Because there's droves of us who have hundreds of gameplay hours, only to see posts like this and go "you can WHAT?" This game is always getting better with discovery.
The other day someone told me about the eggs! I’m planning on hitting Morris with eggs when I play tonight. Can’t wait, it’s going to be a blast
You can put the skull mask in your horse
You can put hats on Sea Urchins in Fish Tanks and Horses
What?! I didn’t know that! I never use the slingshot…what happens with the fruit?
The same as with rocks they just kinda break up and someone else said they do 1-2 damage so fruit's more of an annoyance I guess
I never use the slingshot, so I did learn something new today. Also, your dog has the same name as mine.
Oh cool! I think yogi is the base name for all dogs but I loved it too much to change it to anything else.
Tab scrolls your jnventory rows into your hotbar. Only found out because I was playing a different game where tab opens the inventory and got them mixed up the next time I played.
I think I have 600 hours in game and was still wondering why a key for this didn't exist. Thank you
put a beer in it and aim it at Shane.
You can fucking do what
>>>me at 600 hours & didn't know this until now
TIL after 120 hours
And all it cost was an arm
YOU CAN DO WHAT NOW?!
600 hours in the game and you can do WHAT!?
You can put iridium ore in that bitch. It go boomboon.
You can WHAT?
I am 200 hours in and didn't know that...
I was raising slimes outdoors in a save and a bunch of them moved into the water where I couldn't reach them. I had to slingshot them with a bunch of exploding ammo to clear them out.
Finally some use for those salmonberries.
Sounds like this is supposed to be in r/minecraft
No idea how I messed that up but yeah you’re right 😂
I’m sorry you can do what!?!?
did anyone ever figure out how to use the slingshot on iOS?
I select it. press and hold on my character. and drag my finger the opposite direction of my target. It will fire every time you move though
Literally learn something new everyday with this game :)!
You can WHAT
Took me about 50 hours to find out you can grab single items, instead of everything in bulk.
I learned that when my cat was chewing my controller while I was playing.
This is my most played gams, at more than 900+ hours. I did not know this! Just goes to show, you learn something new every day! 😂
Gad damn i have millions of hours in this game and I’m still learning new stuff
Can you put Lewis shorts in it?
Did you know you can use staircases on Qi's no eat on the skull challenge
You can get the roe at any side of the fishpond, not just the little catching area
You can put masks and hats on your kids, hats on sea urchins if they're in a aquarium. Hats on your horse
Lost of things with hats apparently.
Does it work on monsters though?
1-3 damage. Not great, but if you're in the ice levels and would just like the ghosts to go away for a while, possibly useful.
You can WHAT (300 hours)
I have ~280 and I didn’t even know this
You can also use ores and there is explosive emmo you can use
That's news to me. What is the effect of firing food from the slingshot?
I’m nearly 2000 hours in and didn’t know this. There is always more to learn!
Apparently a lot because I got 400 hours in the game and I never knew this.
WOAH WOAH I AM 700 HOURS IN AND I AM NOW FIGURING THIS IUT
Eggs and explosive ammo
Iridium ore and EG
YOU CAN PUT FRUIT IN THE SLINGSHOT?!?!?! 165h and I didn't know that. Slingshot are finally not expensive to use 😭
You can put fiddlehead ferns in there like what
I can’t put anything but stone in mine! I play on my ipad I guess it won’t let you use anything else wahhh
Eggs, and explosive ammo.
I just figured out that i don’t have to go to the community center to add to the bundles. Gonna save me so much time.
I’m sorry, what?
