Uses[edit | edit source]

The Small Camera is used to take pictures of anything the player wants to remember. To do so, the player may either slot the camera or place it directly on the ground, offering different functionality.

When placed directly on the ground, the small camera will begin a short 5-second countdown before snapping a pic, allowing the player to get into position, such as performing some emotes with other players.

When the small camera is placed onto any attachment slot, activating it, either directly with F or context keys (C or V by default) if placed in a backpack widget slot, will instantly take the picture. This is good for catching action shots if placed on one of the reactive slots on platforms such as the XL Sensor Arch, or for taking scenic images using a Tall Platform.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Small Camera will take images depending on the angle of the camera, so when it is placed on the backpack and not in a widget slot, the image will have the backpack and the scene behind at an angle.
  • Images cannot be saved directly, and players must use their platform's screenshot feature to save the images taken.
