Bows

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Bows are non-magic ranged weapons that fire arrows as ammunition. With the exception of the Wooden Bow (which is crafted at a Work Bench) their crafting requires an Iron Anvil. Their best modifier at demonite and above is Unreal, for platinum bows and below, their best modifier is Demonic due to the lack of knockback. The Hardmode-tier equivalent are called Repeaters.
