  • Pumpkins can be hunted for on foot but with a flying mount can be found more efficiently.
  • Ways to find pumpkins:
    • .Flying high enough that trees don’t load in. (Pumpkins glow will be visible, but look closely, because they are small.)
    • Flying low through dense forests.(Some spawn under tree cover)
  • Pumpkins can be found at any altitude, even in lakes and on the volcano.
  • No confirmed sightings in the ocean.
