"you become a walking turret"

Turret Gear is a Hat in


  • It’s a rotating turret on your head.
  • The Turret Gear shoots Cannonballs at nearby enemies, just like a Turret but the animated top sprite does not need to face the target, and it instead just spins around.
  • It does 25 damage per shot.
  • It fires every 2.5 seconds
  • It has a target range of 700
  • You move at 70% of your normal speed while wearing
  • Costs 10000 Gold



  • Try to hit an opponent with a high knockback weapon, like the Bat or the Polearm so the hat could deal some ranged damage.
  • Combine with Monkey Tail and a ranged weapon to easily kite the enemy.
  • You can also use it to kill AFK players in their bases, as it shoots through walls (unless they use Windmills as part of the wall)
  • Don't walk around with this all the time, as it slows your speed noticeably.
  • Walk to an opponent, quickly equip it and then unequip. This will fire a cannonball and provoke the opponent.
  • An advanced version of insta-kill involves Turret Hat. Equip the Bull Helmet, then hit your opponent (using E) with Short Sword/Polearm, and switch quickly to Musket. (if you are using Polearm, then Crossbow will do) Simultaneously equip the Turret Hat. This is used widely to insta-kill Soldier Helmet users. It is very hard to pull this off without Hacking, but many hackers do it with ease.
