I just got a new slingshot. It's not very effective against monsters but it's fun to take potshots at Shane when I see him.

Hitting Shane makes the grumpy speech bubble appear above his head. Does that mean I lose friendship with people if I shoot them?

    If your aiming is non lethal: likely!

Yes, you'll lose some friendship, but not a lot.

Each heart level is 250 friendship points.

Shooting someone takes away 30 friendship points, or 12% of a heart level.

Yes, hitting people with rocks will, not surprisingly, make them dislike you.

    Does this also apply to tool like axes and pickaxes and hoes?

    @Reafexus That should be its own question. Feel free to make a new question.

    You claim this is not surprising. Do you have a source?

    I would claim this is only true if the person in question knows who actually threw the rock.. Commented Mar 11, 2016 at 13:30
