Ambient objects

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
These background objects will not drop items for collection by the player. See Object for those that will always provide a drop.

Throughout most Biomes and Layers, various ambient objects are randomly scattered on world creation. These are naturally-placed background objects that can be broken with a Pickaxe, but otherwise cause no effects, and don't drop items. They function primarily as visual ambiance and cannot be collected or placed by players.

Destroying ambient objects in a Surface or Underground Jungle Biome has a chance to spawn various Bait Critters that can be collected with the Bug Net (Worm, Grasshopper, Grubby, Sluggy, Buggy).
