The Jigg Hat is a wearable hat in Platform Racing 2 that serves as the twelfth and final hat in the game, released on 2013-02-05.[1] It spawned from a Motley Monday idea posted by user "Tommy 8" on the jiggmin.com forum in December 2012 before being selected the following February.[2]

The hat has an extremely similar appearance to the Kong Hat, with the main difference being the replacement of the Kongregate logo with Jiggmin's.

Ability

While a player possesses the hat, they have the ability to jump on another player's head, briefly forcing them into a crawl state similarly to the basic function in the original Platform Racing.

Obtainability

Platform Racing 2 - Jigg Hat Location
The Jigg Hat can be found in "Buto (EXACT)" by ZePHiR, a recreation of the Platform Racing 1 level. Users must make their way to shortly after the mid-point and stand on the edge of one of the two mini pyramids separated by a small pit. They then must wait until the clock reads "0:42", after which the hat will fall from the sky and into the left side of the pit. Grabbing and finishing the level while wearing it will allow them to keep it permanently.

As evident by a post one day before its release, Jiggmin originally intended the hat to simply be a prize for a level containing every course in the original Platform Racing, though he abandoned this in favor of a more complex method.[3]
