The Beach Ball in action.

The Beach Ball is a novelty item. Using it creates an interactive beach ball for players to bounce around. After (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 2 seconds of sitting still Mobile version or coming to a full stop and then being tapped, it reverts to its item form which can be picked up and reused.

If the Beach Ball is hit more than 10 times without it touching the ground, a status message appears saying "Beach Ball was hit <number of times> times before touching the ground!"


  • The Beach Ball reacts to blocks, doors, and liquid as boundaries and will bounce off them normally.
  • When touching players, the ball reacts as though it were struck, repelling away with increased velocity. This occurs even for players standing still, but more so if they are in motion, which can easily send the ball flying off-screen.
  • The Beach Ball is not affected by NPCs or furniture. Beach Balls used on them will simply pass through without interacting.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The Beach Ball can be bounced by any projectile, including pets and minions.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) If multiple Beach Balls are thrown at once, they will also react to each other.


  • If the Beach Ball travels off the left or right edges of the map, it often cannot be retrieved, and presumably despawns.
  • The Beach Ball is considered a projectile, and will therefore activate Teal Pressure Pads(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).
  • A few items of interest are the Water Gun and the Rainbow Gun, which interact with the Beach Ball, and the Starlight(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), which does not.
  • The beach ball can be used to play some sports, such as soccer and volleyball.
