Pulse Bow in action.

The Pulse Bow is a unique post-Plantera Hardmode bow that auto-fires a high-velocity glowing white bolt, which is unaffected by gravity, will pierce enemies, can ricochet five times, and fly for 3.5 seconds (~480 tiles) before dissipating. It is randomly sold by the Traveling Merchant after Plantera has been defeated, and will also sometimes use it in self-defense.

Like other Bows and Repeaters, it can use any Arrow type as ammunition, but always fires the same unique white projectile, rather than providing any particular Arrow's usual sprite. Effects normally provided by a particular Arrow type are cancelled, except for their damage statistic.

The Pulse Bow has a base 7% critical strike chance as opposed to the usual 4%.

Its best Modifier is Unreal.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Pulse Bow operates differently compared to other Bows. Even though it consumes Arrows, its projectiles appear as if they were cast by a magic weapon in that they emit a particle glow, ricochet, pierce, dissipate in midair, and are unaffected by gravity.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Pulse Bow is generally considered one of best bows in the game, although the Tsunami can outdamage it against single targets.
  • It is an excellent weapon for discovering Floating Islands, due to its high speed and ricochet ability.
  • Its piercing and ricochet abilities make it useful in confined spaces, such as Dungeons.
  • Because the Pulse Bow cancels additional arrow effects, damage is the only factor that should be considered in choosing an arrow type. The highest base damage can currently be achieved with Venom Arrows (82).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Pulse Bow's color scheme is similar to that of Shroomite equipment.
