    Default Certain items FORCEFULLY overriding other punch effects

    We all know how most items with punch effects can be re-equipped in an order to allow your other items to show their effect. Such as re-equipping to let your The Gungnir fire instead of your eye visor. This has been this way for a long time, and it has been broken recently. I'm not sure about the exact number of items doing this, but I know 4 items for sure. They are the IOTM from last month, Eyes on Stalks, Giant Eyeball Head and Drabbit's Foot.

    NO MATTER what order you try to equip them with other items, they will override effects of hand items, resulting in you often losing out on the effects you want shown. For example, when you wear legendary dragon AND Eyes on Stalks, ALWAYS 100% of the time it will be the lame laser from the eyes, rather than the cool fire from the dragon. While some people might prefer the laser instead, we should be given the choice to swap between the effects rather than stick to one. Then, Drabbit's Foot overrides almost EVERYTHING, shown to override both face, hat & hand item punch effects. We really need the choice to be able to choose, just like how it always has been.

    I find this annoying too. I can't use my atomic shadow scythes punch effect with stuff such as the hellfire horns. Hoping this can eventually change.

    They should add a new option to the backpack where there's a checkmark beside Item A chosen and once checked, that special effect will override Item B and vice versa.

    You're supposed to be able to change the order so you can make one item show it's punch effect rather than the others

    OKAY so this is working way weirder than I thought. So CERTAIN items have higher priorities than others, while some items have the same priority with each other and can do the old swap item equip order trick. It's really messed up and inconsistent.

    This is honestly way too confusing and doesn't make sense why it should be left in a certain way for one item, but then a different way for others. Also it looks like some items can't be swapped anymore for some reason, like diamond horns with other items.

    I have forwarded this case to our designers. Perhaps we can apply the suggestion mentioned here or get a solution for this.

    Any other thoughts?

    I really like luckygemss idea so you can make one item override everything else by checking it. I just tested, it's really weird. Drone & eyes on stalks can swap punch effects, but some other hand items such as legendary dragon or flame scythe can't, basically anything before a certain time period.

    Can this be done with pets too?


    All neck pets are over ridden by hand pets overridden by pants overidden by shoe pets over ridden by hat pets.


    (I may be a bit wrong in this order,but my main point is that i want the option to change pet order too.)

    That’s not relevant to the main topic here.

    Make it so whichever item is equipped first gets to override the rest of the effects that are equipped after that.
