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.
