Slingshots are weapons that appear in EarthBound Beginnings and Earthbound. These are one of the few weapons that can be shared among all party members, and replaces the bash command into the shoot command.

In EarthBound Beginnings[]

Can be bought at the third floor of the Podunk Department Store for $120 and can be sold for $60. Also found in the Twinkle Elementary School. It increases the offense of Ninten and his party by 7. It has a higher offense stat than that of Ninten's bat, yet it misses 19% of the time.

In Earthbound[]

First bought and obtained by Ness in the Twoson Dept. Store for $89. It is sold for $44, and increases Ness', Paula's or Jeff's offense by 12 points, and reduces Poo's ofense by 12. It misses 18.75% of the time.

Trivia[]

  • This weapon doesn't make its appearance in Mother 3. The function of Yo-yos seem to replace the need for a slingshot.
  • An RPG (Role-Playing Game) equivalent for this item is possibly a bow and arrow.
