The World Globe is a thrown consumable item sold by the Zoologist after the Bestiary is 50% complete (261 entries). Once a World Globe is thrown and shatters on a surface, the background for the current biome changes permanently for the current world, to a random one of the backgrounds available for that biome unless another World Globe is thrown. The World Globe can be used in any biome.


  • When thrown in the Corrupted, Crimson, and Hallowed deserts the World Globe will only affect the normal desert biome.
  • When thrown in underground variants of biomes such as the Underground Jungle, the surface variant will be affected by the World Globe.
  • When thrown in the Underworld, the World Globe will change the dynamic background of the Underworld, unlike the other underground biome backgrounds.
