The Coconade is a Weapon exclusive to the Shipwrecked DLC. It requires 1 Coconut, 1 Gunpowder and 1 Rope to craft and a Science Machine to prototype. A Coconade can be used as a ranged explosive weapon or it can be used as a placed explosive like Gunpowder. Coconades are possible rewards from X Marks the Spot treasure chests, and can also be found in Steamer Trunks.
The Obsidian Coconade is a stronger and more expensive version of the Coconade, and requires 3 Coconades, 3 Obsidian, and a Dragoon Heart to craft 3 of them, however doing so requires wearing a Brain of Thought or being near the Obsidian Workbench. Obsidian Coconades may be found in X Marks the Spot treasure chests.
When it explodes, an Obsidian Coconade deals 340 damage and destroy structures within a 9 unit radius (2.25 Pitchfork tiles).
To use a Coconade or Obsidian Coconade, the player must first light it either by right-clicking a Torch on the Coconade in their Inventory, or by placing it on the ground then lighting it. The lit Coconade in the inventory can be thrown by first equipping it, then right-clicking the target. If the player does not throw a Coconade that was lit in the inventory after 5 seconds, it will explode, dealing its usual 250 or 340 damage to the player.
Regular Coconades are also included in the Hamlet DLC, however, they cannot be crafted. Instead, they can be bought for 20 Oincs at The Boar's Tusk Weapon Shop in the Pig City. Coconades can be used to destroy Suspicious Cracks in the Ancient Pig Ruins.
- Effects of worn Armor apply to a Coconade exploding inside the inventory meaning it can be used as a last resort if the player is being overwhelmed by hostile mobs.
- Coconades can one-shot the Pugalisk with the correct placement
- Coconades are much more effective when lit in the inventory then thrown, due to the ability to target the explosion. Lighting up for explosion placed on ground, multiple Gunpowder will do more damage.
- Unexperienced players should take great care while using the Obsidian Coconade, as the big explosion may take many players by surprise, and kill or hurt them if they are not out of range.
