Notes[]

  • This content is transcluded from Informational Accessories/note.Unlike most accessories, informational accessories such as the Mechanical Lens do not need to be equipped in an accessory slot. The Mechanical Lens may be carried in the player's inventory without loss of functionality, unless equipped to a social slot. Additionally, the info it provides will be shared with nearby players of the same team in multiplayer. Keep in mind modifiers will no longer apply to the player when not equipped.
  • Having a Mechanical Lens in your inventory while exploring the Dungeon, Jungle Temple, or deep underground caverns will reveal wires and show you where dangerous traps are located. Carrying a Wire Cutter will allow you to disable the traps. The Grand Design will combine these features.
