The Bowler hat is a piece of stylish headgear that offers a significant boost to Social Impact (+15%), minimal armor for the head and ears, and a bit of extra insulation (mainly from heat).
Acquisition
As a complicated garment, bowler hats require Complex Clothing to be researched and can only be made at tailor benches. A bowler hat requires 20 of any textile, and 1,800 ticks (30 secs) of work.
Bowler hats can also be purchased, or stripped from Outlanders.
Analysis
This section is a stub. You can help RimWorld Wiki by expanding it. Reason: Theres a lot of other headgear to compare it to and it needs a proper role analysis. |
Bowler hats are almost identical to cowboy hats, with only a few minor differences:
- Bowler hats boost social impact more (+15% vs. +10%)
- Bowler hats offer less insulation from heat (40% vs. 50% )
- Bowler hats cost fewer materials (20 vs. 25)
- Bowler hats are slightly less valuable (reflecting the smaller number of materials required)
Given the similarities, the choice between cowboy hats and bowler hats is mostly one of style.
Social Impact
If a social impact boost is required, the bowler hat provides a larger boost than the cowboy hat for fewer materials and is the better choice in RimWorld Core. However if the Royalty DLC is installed, the coronet and top hat provide a larger bonus.
Nota bene: Social impact predominately affects the Opinion bonuses and maluses pawn interactions can create, as well as the success chance of the Speeches ^{}. It does NOT affect trade prices as that is instead dependent on Trade Price Improvement, nor does it affect prisoner recruitment, beyond slightly hastening how quickly the prisoners like the warden, as that is instead dependent on Negotiation Ability.
