Turret Stakes is an Item that can only be found in the form of Golden Pupa loot. Upon being picked up, all of the player's current and future Turrets and Scarecrows will be able to be deployed on hard crust. Note that this effect extends to the Curret as well. This effectively allows the player the ability to deploy these defensives nearly anywhere on the Farm. This in turn can provide further utility in the form of placing them further away, which can be helpful against Enemies that attack from a distance, such as the Sniper Bundit. Furthermore, the player can place Turrets and Scarecrows on the surrounding hard crust close to Crops in favor of placing them on tilled spaces. This can be used to preserve that tilled space in order to use it for farming.
Compared to all other Items, Turret Stakes is the only one capable of providing more versatility in the placement of Turrets and Scarecrows. This benefit provides it with inherit value in that regard. However, it is much more difficult to obtain than other Turret or Scarecrow related upgrades, due to appearing exclusively in the Golden Pupa loot. Due to this, other Turret and Scarecrow Items may be much easier to shape the player's run around.
