Sow Shield is an Item that causes seeds to destroy enemy bullets in a large radius upon being planted.

General Description[]

Sow Shield 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. Upon being picked up, any seed that is planted will cause a green circle to quickly pulse out from it. Any enemy bullets within this circle are then destroyed and can no longer hurt the player. there is also a large knock-back effect on any enemy within the radius. Sow Shield will also destroy Demobun's bombs, but only if the bomb itself is within the radius. This effect does not extend to Corpse-a-Copia's Flying Skulls.


This item provides amazing protection when farming in the presence of enemies. It is also very effective at keeping enemies from eating your crops due to its knock-back. It can be more situational than Harvest Shield because the player harvests more than they plant when growing Fruit Trees. Unlike Helpful Worm, this item will provide no protection while away from your crops, so it is limited to protection while on the farm.
