Cheese is typically purchased at the Cheese Shoppe, and is essential for arming your trap. The "special" cheeses SUPER|brie+ and Radioactive Blue are obtained through either donations to the MouseHunt developers or by imbuing other cheeses with potions. Different types of cheese have different odds of attracting a variety of mice to your trap. In general, a more expensive cheese will be better in attracting mice than less expensive varieties.
As you travel and move your trap to new locations, you may notice some cheese attracts specific breeds of mice more often than others. Although this will not always be obvious, observant hunters will benefit from studying the cheese preferences of different mice in different locations.
- Cheddar is rather poor at attracting most mice, however hunters may find success with this cheese when hunting the more frail breeds.
- Marble offers a decent chance of attracting a variety of mice.
- Swiss offers a good chance of attracting a variety of mice.
- Brie offers a very good chance of attracting a variety of mice.
- This special, extra fragrant brie is only available as a gift to the supporters of MouseHunt. Due to the magical properties of SUPER|brie+, crafty mice are unable to steal multiple pieces of this precious cheese from hunters who hunt in dangerous environments. This cheese offers a 99% attraction rate for many of the mice in the game!
- Radioactive Blue cheese cannot be bought. It can only be obtained by imbuing Brie or SUPER|brie+ with a Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion or Greater Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion, which can be collected as loot in the Laboratory or Mousoleum, or with a Corrupted Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion collected in the Catacombs. Black Widow and Lycan mice are known to drop Radioactive Blue cheese when caught in the Mousoleum.
- Moon is a special cheese that was only available through Ronza's Traveling Shoppe during a visit to the Burroughs region.
The following cheeses can only be obtained through crafting:
