The Slingshot is a slingshot weapon that can be obtained from the chest on level 40 of The Mines. Despite its description, many items other than Stone can be used as Slingshot ammunition.

Unlike most weapons, using the slingshot on a villager will decrease your friendship with them by 30 points. Using the slingshot on your pet will produce a "hate" dialogue bubble, but will not decrease friendship.


To equip a slingshot with ammunition, select the ammunition, then
on the slingshot.

The type of ammunition used determines the damage dealt, according to the following formulas:

Damage = AmmoMultiplier + random number between [-(AmmoMultiplier / 2), AmmoMultiplier + 1]
Master Slingshot:
Damage = 2 * (AmmoMultiplier + random number between [-(AmmoMultiplier / 2), AmmoMultiplier + 1])

With the worst ammo (i.e., Fruits, Vegetables, or Eggs), a Slingshot can deal 1-3 and a Master Slingshot can deal 2-6 damage. With the best ammo, Iridium Ore, a Slingshot can deal 25-101 damage while a Master Slingshot can deal 50-202 damage.

The following items can be used as ammunition:

Copper Ore 10

Gold Ore 30
Iridium Ore 50

  • The clipping glitch that allows you to enter the normally unreachable space around a map area does not work with slingshots.


  • 1.4: Slingshots can now be put in the inventory trash bin on computer and console (Mobile already had this ability).
