Basics of Crafting

Crafting in Backpack Battles is simple – you place several ingredients so that they touch each other on the sides. The combination doesn't happen immediately but after the next battle. This interaction can be blocked by right-clicking, if necessary.

Item combinations can be discovered by highlighed blue lines. After each new assembly, the item is added to the recipe list, which you can always check before a battle. In this guide, a complete list of recipes is provided as of early January 2024. As the game receives updates, the list of combinations is planned to be expanded.

Swords and Blades

Hero Sword

Hero Sword
Hero Sword

Wooden Sword + 2x Whetstone

Heroic Sword is an excellent weapon in the early stages of the game. It is crafted from a basic Wooden Sword and two Whetstones. The sword enhances all surrounding weapons by +2 damage and can be crafted into even more powerful weapons.

Hero Longsword

Hero Longsword
Hero Longsword

Hero Sword + 2x Whetstone

Hero Longsword - is the result of two additional sharpenings of the Hero Sword. It increases the number of adjacent star-marked cells and adds even more damage (+4 in total). The more items around the sword, the more powerful it becomes. It pairs well with stones and compact daggers.

Falcon Blade

Falcon Blade
Falcon Blade

Hero Sword + 2x Gloves of Haste

Falcon Blade is another variation of the Hero Sword combined with two gloves. It accelerates all items around it by 35%, and, most importantly, delivers double strikes. Why is this important? To increase damage, trigger critical hits, activate debuffs and damage over time effects from inserted gemstones, or to freeze enemies with a blue gem. This double strike has numerous applications, but it inflicts more damage upon itself against thorns.

Crossblades

Crossblades
Crossblades

Hero Longsword + Falcon Blade

Crossblades are crafted from the two previously mentioned powerful swords. An item located on a star deals ten more damage; a good choice is to place a Bow and Arrows there. An item in the green square triggers 60% faster.

Crossblades become more powerful with each attack: after a successful hit, they increase their damage by one and accelerate by 3%.

The drawback of this combination is that its creation takes a lot of time. It's better to plan the collection of such weapons in advance by purchasing all the necessary whetstones.

Vampiric Items

Vampiric Gloves

Vampiric Gloves
Vampiric Gloves

Gloves of Haste + Blood Amulet

From ordinary gloves, you can make Vampiric ones. They accelerate items on the sides by 35%, and, after 4 seconds, provide a generous 6 units of vampirism. Truly powerful gloves.

Bloodthorne

Bloodthorne
Bloodthorne

Hungry Blade + Thorn Whip

Hungry Blade is always advisable to upgrade into the Bloodthorne. This way, Regeneration is converted not only into Vampirism but also into Spikes. These two stats, in turn, increase the damage to the weapon by 2. It's a powerful weapon but, naturally, requires a good regeneration rate for high efficiency.

Vampiric Armor

Vampiric Armor
Vampiric Armor

Leather Armor + Blood Amulet

Regular Leather Armor can be crafted into Vampiric Armor with the help of a vampiric stone. It provides significantly more armor not only initially but also throughout the entire battle due to health conversion.

Bloody Dagger

Bloody Dagger
Bloody Dagger

Dagger + Blood Amulet

Blood Dagger is an inexpensive and striking representative of the vampire build. It gains one unit of Vampirism on hitting an enemy and heals for two for each star around it. Stars have to contain vampiric items.

Potion Recipes

Strong Health Potion

Strong Health Potion
Strong Health Potion

Health Potion + Healing Herbs

Strong Health Potion utilizes herbs for an additional 6 HP and 2 regeneration. However, sometimes it's more beneficial to leave the herbs in the inventory, especially in vampiric builds.

Strong Stone Skin Potion

Strong Stone Skin Potion
Strong Stone Skin Potion

Stone Skin Potion + 2x Stone

Strong Stone Skin Potion provides slightly more armor, and 3 spikes. These spikes are active for only 3 seconds, so it's advisable to spend them on something immediately.

Strong Heroic Potion

Heroic Potion + Banana

Strong Heroic Potion is made from a banana and provides four stamina when a player lacking it completely. In practice, such a situation doesn't always occur.

Magic Items

Magic Staff

Magic Staff
Magic Staff

Broom + Mana Orb

Magic Staff is a long-range weapon that requires three mana to deal six damage and increase own damage by two until the end of the battle. It's usually worth crafting the staff if you're lucky enough to find it in the shop along with the Mana Orb. You'll also need to gather Blueberries and other mana sources, without which the staff will only deal four to six damage.

Spectral Dagger

Spectral Dagger
Spectral Dagger

Dagger + Mana Orb

Spectral Dagger is a bit tricky to use. Firstly, it is crafted from the Mana Orb. Secondly, to deal damage directly to health, it requires mana (for example, Blueberries or a second Mana Orb).

Manathirst

Manathirst
Manathirst

Hungry Blade + Mana Orb

Manathirst gains mana upon striking and steals 12+ life when accumulating 20 mana. The mana is not expended and can be used for other purposes.

Darksaber

Darksaber
Darksaber

Lightsaber + Corrupted Crystal

Carrot Goobert, the exclusive pet of the Ranger, removes debuffs and increases the damage of all weapons by 2 for 4 seconds.

Poison Goobert

Poison Goobert
Poison Goobert

Goobert + 2x Fly Agaric

Poison Goobert is quite an interesting pet overall - it removes two poisons from itself and applies three to an enemy. It pairs well with Pestilence Flask, allowing you to later remove that poison from yourself. Very useful when playing against other Reapers.

Steel Goobert

Steel Goobert
Steel Goobert

Goobert + Hero Sword

Steel Goobert is potent for both classes: providing 18 armor and increasing weapon damage on green squares for every 5 star activations. To quickly activate the stars, it is recommended to place shields, weapons, and blueberries in adjacent cells. This item pairs well with unwieldy weapons like the Hammer or Thorn Whip to activate both a yellow star and a green square.

Blood Goobert

Blood Goobert
Blood Goobert

Goobert + Blood Amulet

Blood Goobert provides two units of Vampirism from the start, and every 6 star activations steals 10 HP plus the current value of Vampirism. If you combine Blood Goobert with the Blood Harvester and accumulate 20-30 vampirism, the ability to take away health from enemies will become the key to many victories.

Light Goobert

Light Goobert
Light Goobert

Goobert + Lightsaber

Light Goobert is probably the rarest Goobert: it heals for 18 and inflicts 6 Blind, but only for 4 seconds.

Rainbow Goobert Megasludge Alphapuddle

Rainbow Goobert Megasludge Alphapuddle

Goobert + Carrot Goobert + Steel Goobert + Blood Goobert + Light Goobert

Omega, Giga, Grand, Holy, Rainbow Goobert – the one that all players collected only once. Provides a multitude of buffs, armor, damage, and heals. Very difficult to assemble, but after collection, it's almost impossible to lose any fight.

Rainbow Goobert Omegaooze Primeslime

Rainbow Goobert Omegaooze Primeslime

Goobert + Poison Goobert + Steel Goobert + Blood Goobert + Light Goobert

Rainbow Goobert for the Reaper doesn't differ in power from its twin. Instead of weapon enhancement, it adds 4 Poison.

Pan + Corrupted Crystal

Pandamonium itself boasts high damage stats. In addition to them, it also inflicts one poison for each activated star with food. This amount of poison is effective not only for the Reaper but also suitable for the Huntress. When the enemy has less than 35% health remaining, the green cell activates 100% faster. Sustain items such as a healing book can be useful there, along with some pineapple or garlic, which can also be placed in an adjacent star.

Lucky Piggy

Lucky Piggy

Piggybank + 2x Lucky Clover

The super piggy, made from a regular piggy, grants one gold coin, two luck, and enhances items in front of it. The uniqueness of the Lucky Piggy lies in its interaction with chance-dependent items. Examples of such items include the Hammer, Mana Orb, Garlic, and Bow and Arrows.

Critwood Staff

Critwood Staff
Critwood Staff

Magic Staff + Acorn Collar

Critwood Staff requires four mana to deal an additional seven damage, and for one second, all attacks (including attacks from the staff) become critical.

Ruby Whelp + Holo Fire Lizard

Ruby Whelp, a regular dragon hatchling emerges from a Ruby Egg after two rounds. If the special Holo Fire Lizard card for the Reaper is found, it transforms into a Ruby Chonk, attacking then swiftly and powerfully, accelerating with each hit. Upon collecting ten Heats, there's a 30% chance to stun the enemy, which is excellent on its own and even more effective with daggers.

Hammer + Piggybank

You can break a regular piggy bank with a hammer, and it will yield 5 coins. The piggy bank will disappear, but the hammer will remain in its place, which is absolutely reasonable.
