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 it can not fall off. The Crown is nerfed in deathmatches, however, as it will fall off after one attack.
The hat is available as a prize for folding 5,000 points in Folding at Home for Team Jiggmin. Those promoted to a moderator or whose level is added to a campaign are also automatically given a Crown. Initially it was limited to these methods and served as a more special prize, though it was made a F@H prize in November 2008 after 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.
In addition to the previous weapons, players wearing the hat are also protected from the new Rocket Launcher. It is overall less powerful, however, as it always falls off after one use regardless of game mode.
