~ In-game description

The Orienteering Compass, like the regular compass, is a navigational aid used to tell the cardinal direction of the operator.


To use the orienteering compass it must be equipped in your hands. It can be difficult to see exact numbers on the compass; if you want to get a closer view of the numbers, go into your inventory and use MMB to "Inspect" the item.


  • For a while, the orienteering compass was only very rarely obtained as a bonus through eating a box of Crunchin Crisps Cereal, but was reintroduced as a rare loot spawn in 0.61.
