Now I'm the king of the beefalo!


The Beefalo Hat is a Hat Item found in the Dress Tab. It requires 8 Beefalo Wool and a Beefalo Horn to craft and a Science Machine to prototype. The Sewing Kit repairs 50% of its durability.

It is a tier 3 warm clothing, increasing the time a character can be without a heat source during the Winter before Freezing. It has an insulation factor of 240.

The Beefalo Hat will also cause Beefalo to return to their neutral behavior when worn during mating season. If the parent of a Baby Beefalo is killed, and the player is wearing a Beefalo Hat, the baby may start to follow the player provided the player does not already have a follower.

In DLCs, the Beefalo Hat provides 20% water resistance during Rain.

In the Hamlet DLC, Beefalo Hats can be bought for 10 Oincs at The Sow's Ear Hat Shop in the Pig City.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • When the player is roaming around Beefalos during mating season and/or when shaving them at night, it's advised to wear this hat to keep from being attacked.
  • Players should take off the Hat when next to a fire (or replace it with a sanity-boosting hat) as the item's durability will go down with it on, and the fire alone is enough to keep the character warm.

  • This item used to increase the player's Sanity per minute by a slight amount of points. 
  • The previous crafting description was a reference to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, when Han Solo cuts open a tauntaun to keep Luke Skywalker warm, he says, "And I thought they smelled bad on the outside!".
  • Despite having two horns on it, the hat only takes one Beefalo Horn to craft.
