Hay bales are a form of interactive scenery found throughout farms in Old School RuneScape. Players can use a sack with a Hay bale or a haystack to get a hay sack, needed to craft a Scarecrow.

Some hay bales can be searched with a 10% chance to find a needle.[1] When this occurs, the player will say "Wow! A needle! Now what are the chances of finding that?" However, there is a 2% chance that players will get pricked with the needle, causing them to lose one hitpoint.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The chance to receive a needle is a reference to the idiom "a needle in a haystack", referring to something that is difficult or impossible to locate.
    • Despite this, the 10% chance is quite high for an item drop.
