Hellfire Arrows are a type of ammunition that creates a small explosion upon impact similar to Grenades, damaging everything in the area (including the player). These arrows can be very useful against tight packs of enemies and worms such as Bone Serpents, as the explosion may damage multiple segments.
Hellfire Arrows cannot be recovered once fired. They have a noticeably higher shoot speed than other arrows, meaning that they travel quickly through the air once fired.
They can be found in Shadow Chests and Pots in the The Underworld, crafted at an anvil, or purchased from the Demolitionist for one silver each once you activate hardmode.
- The selling price of the Hellstone Bar that are required to craft only 25 of these arrows can be used to buy 40 of them. Therefore, it is recommended to simply sell the Bar and buy the arrows themselves from the Demolitionist once the player enters Hardmode.
- Caution should be taken when using Hellfire Arrows, as they can damage the player if shot at a block near him/her.
