Boar Beach is accessible after entering the Ancient Valley map, a snow-filled biome, as your third stage during a run. If by fortune, Ancient Valley emerges instead of Sunken Tomb as your third stage, head to the map’s upper-left section, where the Boar Beach is located.

While the elevated ledge typically exists across most map variants, the entry to Boar Beach isn’t consistently present.

Important: The entrance, as illustrated in the image above, usually appears as a cluster of bushes adjacent to a rickety fence.
  1. To access Boar Beach, hold the “up” button for a few seconds,
  2. It’ll trigger a MapleStory-style transition into the area.

What’s In Boar Beach?

Similar to the infamous pig-ridden area in MapleStory, this Boar Beach features multiple pigs, yet it doesn’t offer substantial farming opportunities.

Despite obtaining a few chests and acquiring considerable money by eliminating pigs, the notable reward here is the exclusive White Undershirt (M) item. Keep an eye out for a particular white pig equipped with this item, who’s immune to various types of damage.

Note:

The White Undershirt (M) carries a familiar MapleStory-style description that reads:

  • +2 STR S>2m or best offer @@@@@@@@.

This description translates to “top enhancing strength by +2, listed for sale at two million or the best offer.” However, the joke is purely a reference and holds no actual significance. In gameplay terms, this shirt provides only three pieces of armor.
