Burrowed Butterfly is an Item that allows the player to better till all soil.

General Description[]

Burrowed Butterfly is an Item that can be found within common locations, including choice enemy Camps, given by Spouses, and rarely as a reward from Seasonal Festivals. After being picked up, an explosive butterfly will spawn and slowly seek out Enemies. The butterfly's explosion deals 120 damage in a small area. This effect can be activated by anything that tills soil or breaks crust. When a Tremor Scroll or equivalent is used, for tiles in which the crust is broken and the soil is tilled at the same time, only 1 butterfly will spawn instead of 2. A butterfly will also spawn when already tilled soil is converted to compacted soil by a Pig, Hog, Golden Hoe, Tractor, or Scrolls.


Without proper synergies, this Item can often be underwhelming as it lacks consistency and good single-target damage. Having several Pigs Hogs that are constantly tilling soil can add a fair bit of defense to the player's farm, however. In addition, paired with Items that can till soil very quickly, such as Cleats, the Megaton Tractor, and Tremor Scrolls, Burrowed Butterfly can clear out a significant amount of scattered Enemies.
