Value 0
Disabled: Not currently available

Distress Beacon is currently disabled from normal gameplay. Assets exist in the game files and it may be implemented in a later update.

This article is about the Distress Beacon boss summoner object. For the decorative object, see Distress Beacon (Snow).

Distress Beacon was a boss summoning object in early beta. It was disabled in update Rampaging Koala.

Placing the Distress Beacon on ground, and activating it, summoned the tier 1 boss, Dreadwing the Penguin. Defeating the boss awarded a Molten Core, with which players could use to craft a Metalwork Station.

There is a decorative object that uses the same name and appearance that can be found in Snow microdungeons called Distress Beacon (Snow). This object has slightly different coloring, instead of the wood color of the supports of the original beacon they appear to be painted red.
