Whiskey Shot is an Item that reduces cooldown timer on Tractors when the player takes damage.

General Description[]

Whiskey Shot 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, whenever the player takes damage their current Tractor's cooldown timer will be reduced by a 35 seconds.


Compared to other means of recharging Tractors, Whiskey Shot is among the fastest, due to having an immediate effect. In this regard, it is only outcompeted by the Recharge Mushroom, due to it providing a full unit of charge instead of a small amount. Unlike this Home Improvement, Whiskey Shot is never permanently consumed however. In addition, it does not rely on other Items in order to function. This can make Whiskey Shot superior to those Items in that regard. This can be further enhanced with damage-incentivizing items like Hotwire. However, because of how this Item only functions upon taking damage the player will have to weigh losing health intentionally against its benefits. Should the player not have much health to spare they may not desire to utilize this Item. This can make it especially less helpful as Thyme, and even more so with Items that terminate when taking damage like Hamsters and Irrigating Moles. Because of this, Whiskey Shot may be best seen as a benefit for accidently taking damage as opposed to utilizing it intentionally.

Beneficial Upgrades[]

  • Prior to Patch 1.5.3f1, Whiskey Shot removed only 20 seconds from a Tractor's cooldown time.
  • Prior to Patch 1.5.3f1, there existed a bug interaction between Whiskey Shot and Hotwire where the damage from the latter would not activate the effect of the former.
