The Bramble Husk is a character-specific Armor Item craftable only by Wormwood. It is found in the Green Thumb Tab, requiring 2 Living Logs and 4 Bone Shards to craft.

It has 375 durability and absorbs 65% of physical damage. Whenever a Character wearing the Bramble Husk is attacked by a Mob, 22.6 average damage (23, 23, 22 respectively three hits) is dealt to each Mob within a radius of one tile. This effect is not triggered by things such as ingesting a Venom Gland or taking damage from HeatCold or Hunger.

It also has the added bonus of preventing damage from Spiky BushesBrambles, Bramble Blooms, and Bramble Traps. This means that one can harmlessly harvest Spiky Bushes, damage Brambles and Bramble Blooms without any worry, or stand next to a Bramble Trap when it is triggered and not take any splash damage. Durability of the armor is not decreased when this effect occurs. In the Reign of Giants DLC, the player won't take any damage from harvesting Cactus while wearing the Bramble Husk.

In Don't Starve Together, the player won't take any damage from picking Roses while wearing Bramble Husk. It is flammable and can be used as Fuel. Damage multipliers have no effect on damage dealt (Wigfrid's x1.25 damage multiplier, Warly's spicy foods +%20 damage bonus etc.).

​​Prototype.png Tips[]

  • This item is very useful in tandem with the Bramble Trap, since using it will let the player avoid their splash damage altogether.
  • Although it shares many similarities with the Cactus Armor included in the Shipwrecked DLC, the Bramble Husk will not prevent an Elephant Cactus from damaging the player.
  • Monsters that tend to swarm together, such as Spiders, Baby Tentacles, Frogs, and Bees can find themselves in a great struggle as the AoE attacks plow through the creatures similar to Abigail.
  • Especially in Don't Starve Together, the armor is quite frail; it would be advantageous to wear a piece of head armor with the Bramble Husk.
    • In Don't Starve Together, wearing the Football Helmet will reduce the damage dealt to the Bramble husk to roughly 44%. Doing so, the Bramble Husk's durability is essentially increased from 262.5 to 475.78 - almost doubled.
