|A Tennis Ball held by the player.|
Carried by Fire throwers
|Fire thrower cannibals|
The Tennis Ball is a throwable object that can be found in The Forest.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
They can be used as a distraction and eventually as an incendiary projectile.
When thrown, it will distract any cannibals around the area it lands, and will immediately alert a cannibal if the ball directly hits it. They can also be lit using the lighter, and thrown directly at enemies to cause burning damage. However, igniting a Tennis Ball will also cause instant burning damage to the player.
The Tennis Ball cannot be placed into the player's inventory and must be carried one at a time.
Fire throwers use Tennis Balls as incendiary projectiles to attack the player's base.
Location[edit | edit source]
A few Tennis Balls can be found in the same area where the Tennis Racket is found.
Known Bugs[edit | edit source]
When picking up a tennis ball, it might glitch out, leaving you unable to drop the ball/throw it. It blocks the access to the survival book and many other things, you can't use a bow, etc.
