The Lazy Deserter is a Structure exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. It is found in the Magic Tab, and requires a Desert Stone, an Orange Moonlens and three Cut Stone to craft. Its rare Blueprint can be obtained by giving a Beach Toy Trinket to the Antlion, or by killing the Antlion. The Lazy Deserter's main use is to teleport one player to another when both are connected by using two of them.

In order to teleport, one player must first activate the Deserter from the destination side. This will lock them in place and generate a constant drain of 50 Sanity.png/min. The second person, right after, must either activate the Deserter on the other side, or right-click on a Desert Stone in their inventory. This will make this player teleport to the first player that started channeling.

Teleporting will take 50 Sanity.png, just like using the Telelocator Staff. If the Desert Stone was used, it will get consumed in the process.

  • The Lazy Deserter was introduced in the Against the Grain update.
  • When channeling a Lazy Deserter, any nearby Desert Stones will levitate and have their "Spikes" jut out.
