From Blaseball Wiki

Items 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.

Players can hold one additional item for every evolutionary level they have - so while most players can only hold 1 item, Base 1 players can hold 2 items, and so on.

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

Generic Items have a simple name like "Bat" and affect a single attribute.
