Tall grass can be cut with the Melee weapon, Claw Boots, or using Giant Emus peck to potentially reveal items, such as Health Juice pickups, throwables or ammunition pickups. Whenever a pickup is revealed, a sound effect can be heard.
Currently there are three types of tall grass:
- Tall green grass, usually found in the Forest biomes
- Wheat-shaped tall yellow grass, normally appears in the Desert biomes
- Bamboo tall grass, appears in Bamboo Forest
The total amount of grass tufts cut is one of the tracked statistics, that can be seen on the Your Stats menu.
