Items

From Blaseball Wiki

The Items page of a player at Base 2 evolution, with all three unlocked slots filled. One of the items is broken, and another is damaged but intact.

Items are objects that can be wielded, worn, or otherwise held by Players that boost or impair their attributes or grant Modifications. Items, in their current form, were introduced at the end of Season 15 as a result of the Bats Decree, which granted all active (non-Shadows) players in the ILB a Bat item. This item system replaced the original system that existed from Season 2 to Season 14, in which Players each had a single "Item" slot and a single "Armor" slot.

Players each have four item slots, arranged in a diamond shape. For players at Base evolution, only the first slot is available for use, the other three being locked. Evolved players can hold one additional item for every evolutionary level they have - Base 1 players can hold 2 items, Base 2 players can hold 3 items, etc.

Items can have an effect on the hitting, pitching, baserunning or defense ratings of the player holding them, and also have unique properties:

  • Type: Bat, Cap, Sunglasses, Ring, etc.
  • Durability: If this value reaches 0, the Item is broken
  • Elements: Extra properties of this Item, such as "Cold", "Inflatable", or "Plant-Based"
  • Mods: Modifications granted by the item, if any

Items usually do not have any eDensity, though they can be given eDensity as a result of modifications such as  Heavy-Handed and  Light-Handed or elements such as eDense and aDense.

Item Types

All Items have a basic item type, such as "Bat". Each item type boosts (or impairs, in the case of Eggs) a single specific attribute by a moderate amount.

Elements

Most Items also possess extra Elements that affect further attributes. Items can even have more than one Element at a time, such as the Sharp Gravity Holey Glove, which has a Durability of 4 and the Sharp, Gravity, and Holey Elements. Each Element also adds 1 additional durability (though it should be noted that an item's maximum durability is decided at the moment it is created, and Elements added afterwards do not give additional durability).

Durability Elements

The following Elements affect Durability:

Element Durability bonus
Paper -3
Glass -2
Plastic -1
Rock +1
Concrete +2
Steel[note 1] +2

It should be noted that, like other elements, these still also each give +1 durability on top of their bonuses.

The following Elements grant Modifications:

eDensity Elements

The following Elements affect Player eDensity. Unlike all other known Elements, these Elements continue to have an effect even when the item is broken.

Element eDensity
aDense -10 bl/m³
eDense +10 bl/m³

Aside from these Elements, Items do not usually have an eDensity value. However, there are two known Team modifications that give Items eDensity –  Heavy-Handed and  Light-Handed. The former of those causes Items belonging to players on the Team to weigh +2 bl/m³ plus an extra +2 bl/m³ for every Element they have. The latter causes Items to weigh -2 bl/m³ plus an extra -2 bl/m³ for every Element they have, then also checks to see if the eDensity of the item is still positive (due to the eDense element) and flips its polarity if so.

Attribute Elements

The following Elements affect player Attributes. These changes are randomized within specific ranges for each item. The ranges vary for each Element – in the below table, extra signs (eg. ++) indicate that the adjustment tends to be larger, while parentheses indicate that the adjustment tends to be minor.

Legendary Items

Legendary Items are a rare type of unique item occasionally granted by blessings or other sources. Legendary Items have infinite durability and cannot be broken or dropped, but can still be stolen by other players. Known Legendary Items include:

+Base Thirst A baserunner holding the The Fifth Base has a small chance of placing and stealing to the Base in the ballpark they are currently playing in, giving the ballpark the  The Fifth Base modification and removing the item from the player.

If a baserunner is standing on the placed Fifth Base, they have a small chance of stealing the base, giving them this item and removing the modification from the ballpark.

Item Replicas

Like Legendary Players, Legendary Items can have Replicas created of them, with identical stats to the original item, sometimes distributed with a corresponding Player Replica. Replica Items are denoted by an additional "Replica" prefix, which gives no additional durability, and a "- Replica" tag in place of the usual "- Legendary" tag. Additionally, unlike their Legendary counterparts, Replica items do not have unlimited durability, and instead can be damaged and dropped normally.

In Season 21, Replicas of Chorby Soul from the Gift Shop came wielding a Replica of the Chorby's Soul item. In Seasons 21 and 22, Replicas of York Silk would have, according to the gift shop description, come wielding a Replica of the Vibe Check, though in both seasons no teams opted to wishlist a York Silk replica.

Notable Non-Legendary Items

There have existed some individual non-Legendary items that attained notability above other items, for various reasons. These include:
