The Golden Scythe is a tool obtained in the Quarry Mine. After unlocking the Quarry, the entrance to the Quarry Mine can be found between the repaired bridge and the Quarry, slightly to the north. At the end of the single-floor mine is a robed Grim Reaper-like statue holding the Golden Scythe. Interacting with the statue will give the player the scythe.

Note that interacting with the statue after taking the Golden Scythe will teleport the player back to the entrance to the Quarry Mine.

The Golden Scythe has the following benefits:

  • Its radius is larger than the standard Scythe and it is more likely to cut all grass in its radius
  • If used to harvest hay from grass, it can yield more hay than the regular scythe would. A regular scythe gives a 50% chance per swipe versus 75% with a Golden Scythe. [1]
  • It inflicts more damage when used as a weapon

If the Golden Scythe is lost, it cannot be replaced.
