The Night Vision Helmet is an armor piece for the helmet slot. For the player wearing it, it increases the apparent light level provided by all light sources on the screen, like the Night Owl buff. It has a 3.33*1/30 (3.33%) chance to be dropped by Granite Elementals and Granite Golems. It can also be purchased from the Cyborg for Desktop and Mobile versions 5 / Console Version 10, after the Martian Madness event has been defeated at least once.


Used in[]


  • The Night Vision Helmet's effect on lighting will not trigger if it is placed in the social helmet slot. It must be worn in place of a helmet armor piece.
  • The effect has the same strength as that of the Night Owl buff, granted by the Night Owl Potion. The Night Vision Helmet does not stack with Night Owl.
