Usage and Mechanics

Spyglasses are used to zoom in on a specific location in the player's field of view (FOV). It changes the FOV to 110 of the FOV set in options. Since the default FOV is set to 70, the spyglass zooms in with an FOV of 7.

A square vignette is applied when in use, similar to the effect when wearing a carved pumpkin. This vignette can be toggled via the F1 key.

The player is slowed down while watching through the spyglass. When it is continuously used for one minute (1200 game ticks), the interface will be closed automatically.

Trivia

  • The spyglass is one of three items to use a dedicated 3D model, the other two being the trident and the shield.
