The Terra Blade is a Hardmode projectile sword, and is the highest base damaging sword in the Console only.pngMobile only.pngConsole and Mobile versions. It auto-swings, firing a green bolt projectile that costs no Mana or ammunition and can pierce through two enemies, dissipating upon impacting a third. The projectile can travel up to 5000 feet (2500 blocks) at a speed of 67 mph. This projectile will only be stopped due to hitting a wall or hitting 3 enemies. It will graphically disappear upon leaving the player's screen but will be visible again if they teleport in its direction. The projectile seems to do more damage than the sword itself.

Its best Modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When using autoswing, the projectile will only fire on every other swing rather than every swing. The Terra Blade's projectile can be fired faster by rapidly clicking, rather than using autoswing.
    • Modifiers that decrease speed will not fix this, as they will also reduce the speed projectiles can be fired.
  • Improvements to the weapon's melee speed increase the velocity of the projectile.
  • Effects from a Flask will transfer to the sword's projectile as well.
  • The Terra Blade is crafted from the True Night's Edge and True Excalibur, both of which require the Broken Hero Sword. The Broken Hero Sword drops from enemies during Solar Eclipses (which have a 5% chance of occurring each day once a Mechanical Boss has been defeated). On the Pc only.png Desktop version it drops from Mothron (which requires all Mechanical Bosses to be defeated), and on Console only.pngMobile only.pngConsole and Mobile, it drops from both Frankenstein and Swamp Thing.
  • Pc only.png Although the Terra Blade can be crafted after defeating all three Mechanical Bosses, it is more viable to finish making it post-Plantera. Solar Tablet Fragments, which are found in the Jungle Temple (entry requires Plantera's defeat), can be used to summon Solar Eclipses rather than wait for one.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Some may argue whether the Terra Blade or The Horseman's Blade is more powerful. Damage-wise, the Terra Blade is better for both melee and ranged attacks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its crafting tree contains a total of 8 different usable swords.
  • The projectile fired by the Terra Blade is referred to as the "Terra Beam" in death messages.
  • Pc only.png During a blood moon the Terra Blade will turn a reddish-orange color, and shoot orange projectiles instead of green.
  • Prior to 1.3 it was considered one of the strongest swords in the game.
  • The sword's projectile resembles the True Excalibur's projectile with the color of the True Night's Edge's projectile.
