We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.

Metal Heads are an enemy found in The Mines. They have very high defense.


They have no special attacks.


Due to the fact that they are resistant to knockbacks, you should back up after 2-3 swings.

Squire's Helmet

A Metal Head will drop a Squire's Helmet when the number of Metal Heads slain + the unique ID assigned to the save file can divide evenly by 100, with no remainder. In the worst case scenario, 99 Metal Heads have to be slain to obtain the first Helmet. [1]
