Straw Megaphone is an Item that allows Scarecrows to energize friends.

General Description[edit | edit source]

Straw Megaphone 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, all of the player's current and future Scarecrows will energize all nearby friends sometimes. This is done in the form of a large wave effect that Scarecrows will sometimes release. When this contacts an ally they will immediately become energized. In order to utilize this Item to its fullest potential, players will need to gather as many Scarecrows as they can. In addition, they will need to place them in locations where their allies, including Farm Animals, spend the most time near. This can make Turret Stakes especially useful in that regard.

Comparison[edit | edit source]

Compared to other means of energizing friends, Straw Megaphone is among the more effortless, due to how it requires minimal action on the player's part. This is because of how Scarecrows will automatically utilize this Item regardless of the player's influence. In addition, Straw Megaphone is the only Scarecrow related Item capable of allowing Scarecrows to energize allies, potentially providing it with higher value in that regard. This can make it especially useful while the player is out clearing Camps and desire some means to energize their allies simultaneously. However, Straw Megaphone is one of the few ally energizing Items that features a limited range. This can potentially make it much more difficult to utilize in that regard, and may make other means more valuable as such.
