Red Baseball Cap

An accessory is an item that users equip to the head, neck, shoulder, face, front, back, or waist region of their Robloxian avatar.

Accessories were once called "hats". Roblox released a catalog/avatar update in late 2016 that changed "hats" to "accessories"; accessories were categorized by type.

Types of accessories

Hat

ROBLOX Baseball Cap

The Roblox Baseball Cap is an example of a hat accessory.

Main article: Hat

This category is for hats, hoods, masks, and anything located on the top of an avatar's head. Up to three accessories of this type can be worn by a player.

Hair accessory

Brown Hair

Brown Hair is a hair accessory and comes default with the Man package.

This type is for hair and wigs. Only one accessory of this type can be worn by a player.

Face accessory

This type is for facial additions, such as glasses and fake mustaches. Only one face accessory can be worn by a player.

Neck accessory

This type is for accessories located to the neck, such as ties, necklaces, or scarves. Only one hat of this type can be worn by a player.

Shoulder accessory

This type is for accessories located on the player's shoulder.

Front accessory

This type is meant for accessories on the front of the torso. Very few accessories belong to this category.

Back accessory

This type is for accessories on the back of the avatar torso, such as capes or backpacks.

Waist accessory

This type is for accessories around the avatar's waistline, like tails and belts.

Obtaining accessories

The most common way to obtain an accessory is to purchase it from the catalog using Robux. Accessories can also be won in contests or obtained from gift hats during the holidays. Exclusive items can be acquired during promotional events. There are free accessories made for new users, but anyone can buy them.

Note that accessories sometimes become Limited or Limited Unique items, which typically are sold for much higher than the original price.

Criticism

Accessories on Roblox are known to be one of the main subjects of criticism. Many users consider them to be overpriced; many of them cost 500 Robux or greater, and are expensive to the point where often only BC members can afford them.

Some of the free accessories were criticized for being ugly when tickets (known as Tix) were removed.

Counter

The main purpose of Roblox is for gaming and building, not holding a fashion show. Accessories on Roblox is just an addition for a Robloxian. Gameplay is barely affected with Accessories.*

You can have 400 Robux by paying only 5 USD to Roblox. This makes about 80 Robux per dollar.

Most RP games or fashion show games provided many ways for you to dress up without buying accessories from the Catalog.

  • Large accessories can increase the distance of where your Robloxian can be hit, and the distance of where you pick items up, similar to packages.

Limited accessories

Limitedhats1

Limited accessories are accessories that were once sold, but then chosen to be put on limited sale. When put on limited sale, no new copies of this accessory will be produced, and the people who bought the accessory during its sale will be able to sell the accessory at a price chosen to their desire, given that the user has a form of Builders Club.

Limited unique accessories 

Limitedu items

Limited unique accessories are accessories that have a certain amount of copies, and when first published, are sold by the admins. All copies of a limited unique accessory have a special number to it, and when a user buys the accessory, they gets that specific copy of the accessory. For example, if an accessory is limited unique, and has only 100 copies, and you buy the 50th, your accessory will be designated by a #50/100. Once the accessory is sold out, all owners of the accessory that have Builders Club can sell the accessory at a price they desire.

Because these accessories have a designated number, many users try to collect limited unique hats with that specific number.
