The Rubber Boots (formerly Wellingtons and Gumboots) are an item introduced in Alpha 8.0. They can be found on the Great Lake area, on the shelves inside a dilapidated shack.
They can be used to avoid damage from stepping on Worms, Corpses and Mushrooms. Worms outwear them by getting in touch or standing on and there is no way to repair them. Mushrooms and Corpses don't cause any durability loss and their poison effects are nullified, although a mushroom or a bursting Corpse will still inflict the Sight debuff. It is also worth to note that you will still take the initial damage when stepping on mushrooms or corpses.The Snail asks the Protagonist if he has this item. If shown the boots, it responds positively, but gives nothing in exchange.
- In Alpha 8 and all of its smaller updates and hotfixes, this item did not work and had no effect or use on the game. This was fixed in Alpha 9. Further releases changed the item's name one more time.
- The Snail calls the rubber boots by their previous name, gumboots, if the Protagonist shows them to him.
