The Battle Helm is a wearable Armor item for the head slot in the Reign of Giants DLC and is exclusive to Wigfrid. Wigfrid starts the game with it in her inventory and is the only character able to craft it. It requires 2 Gold Nuggets and 2 Rocks to craft.

It absorbs 80% of incoming damage and provides a 20% bonus to water resistance.

Due to its stats and cheap recipe, the Battle Helm is a great alternative to the Football Helmet and will secure the head armor slot for a long time for Wigfrid players.

In single player, attempting to spawn this item in with a console command or crafting it with a modded crafting recipe when not playing as Wigfrid will result in the item instantly disappearing from the inventory.

In Don't Starve Together, Wigfrid is allowed to give other players the Battle Helm and Battle Spear, making her a great asset to the team. However, she is the only one allowed to craft it.
