A magnetic compass that contains a magnet which interacts with the earth's magnetic field and aligns itself to point the magnetic poles. — In-game description

The Compass is a navigation item used to tell the orientation of the player.

General[edit | edit source]

To use the compass, it must be equipped in your hands and opened (left click). It can be difficult to see exact numbers on the compass; if you want to get a closer view of the numbers, go into your inventory and click "Inspect" on the item.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to 0.54, only the "old" metal compass was available. The plastic compass is referred to as an "orienteering" compass in the files, and carries with it a slightly lower weight of 130g.
  • For a while, the plastic compass was only very rarely obtained as a bonus through eating a box of Crunchin Crisps Cereal, but was reintroduced as a rare loot spawn in 0.61.
