To defeat Deerclops in Don’t Starve Together, you’ll need weapons, armor, and healing food. Other than that, it is recommended to bring common materials such as cut grass, twigs, logs and hot stones.

Most players in DST use normal spears (or Battle Spear if you’re playing Wigfrid) to fight Deerclops. There’s nothing wrong with this, but it will slow down your combat considerably!

The Tentacle Spike does less damage than the Ham Stick (51 vs. 59.5), but it’s still the best weapon out there. Tentacles in swamp and cave biomes have a 50% chance of dropping one, but they are very hard to defeat.
