Arrows

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Arrows are a form of ammunition fired from a bow or repeater. Most arrows are crafted, but some can be dropped from enemies, purchased from NPCs, or found in chests and Pots. Like with all other automatically consumed items, the type of arrow to use is determined by its position in the inventory: Top-left is the highest, bottom-right the lowest rank.

Types[edit | edit source]

There are currently 17 different kinds of arrows.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile Version3DS Version It is possible to re-use many arrows, especially Wooden Arrows and Flaming Arrows which have a high drop rate after being fired, as they have a chance to break, regardless of what they hit (arrows break as much against slimes as they do against bricks).
  • Certain bows/repeaters such as Chlorophyte Shotbow and Tsunami shoot several arrows at once, consuming only one arrow when fired.
    • All arrows fired from these bows will always break upon impact.
  • Wooden Arrows fired from the Molten Fury are considered to be Flaming Arrows and have a chance to be recoverable as such.
  • Jester's Arrows, Hellfire Arrows, Venom Arrows, and Vulcan Bolts are always consumed and cannot be re-used.
    • For this reason, it is impossible to have Vulcan Bolts in the inventory without hacking, because they only appear when the player fires the Vulcan Repeater, and are always destroyed on impact.
  • Flaming Arrows, Frostburn Arrows, Cursed Arrows and Ichor Arrows, if they did not break, have a 2/3 chance to downgrade back to Wooden Arrow after being shot.
  • The Endless QuiverDesktop, Console, and Mobile Versions provides an infinite supply of Wooden Arrows, and is therefore affected by arrow-converting effects.
    • Despite not using ammo, shots fired with a bow using the Endless Quiver as ammo still have a chance to drop recoverable Wooden Arrows.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Arrows are particularly powerful early game, where even a Copper Bow with simple Wooden Arrows will deal double the damage a sword can.
  • Wooden Arrows should be upgraded to Flaming Arrows or Frostburn Arrows, as that does not require a lot of resources but greatly increases their usefulness.
  • The Magic Quiver substantially boosts the effectiveness of arrows, boosting damage, velocity, and knockback, and granting a chance not to consume them upon use.
