The Crown Hat (often shortened to Crown) is a wearable hat in Platform Racing 2 and Platform Racing 3 that protects users from nearly all harm. It is the only hat to have been exclusive to certain usergroups.
Platform Racing 2
Users who enter a map with the hat are given complete immunity to Laser Guns, Swords and Mines, thus making it so the hat can not fall off. The Crown is nerfed in deathmatches, however, as it will instead fall off after it takes one attack.
The hat is available as a prize for folding 5,000 points in Folding at Home for Team Jiggmin. Players are also automatically given a Crown if they're promoted to a moderator or their level is added to a campaign. Initially the hat was limited to these two methods and served as a more special prize, though it was made a Folding at Home prize in November 2008 due to heavy requests from users.
Platform Racing 3
The Crown returned in Platform Racing 3 with relatively the same design, with the main alteration being the removal of the red balls on top of each point.
Players wearing the hat are protected from the same weapons as the previous game, as well as the new Rocket Launcher. The Crown is overall less powerful, however, as it always falls off after one use regardless of the game mode.
