The Bone Javelin is a thrown consumable weapon made using Sturdy Fossils. Upon hitting an enemy, it will stick to the enemy and inflict the Penetrated debuff, dealing 3 damage per second. Up to six Bone Javelins can be pierced onto an enemy, dealing a total of 18 damage a second. Bone Javelins stuck in an enemy will dissipate after 15 seconds. Thrown Bone Javelins can sometimes be recovered if they strike a surface after the 15 second timer or if an enemy dies while the Bone Javelin is still stuck in them.

Even though the base damage can be amplified with Armors, accessories, and Buffs, the continuous damage of one Bone Javelin will still be 3 damage per second.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Bone Javelin is a powerful pre-Hardmode weapon with its high base damage of 29 and long sticking effect. Combined with Fossil Armor, this weapon could easily two-shot most pre-Hardmode enemies and is still viable in early-Hardmode. However it lacks the piercing ability of the Bone Throwing Knife, making it most effective against single enemies.
  • You can never retrieve Javelins when you have the set bonus of the Fossil armor or Ninja armor.
  • Bone Javelins act similar to a Daybreak which both stick to an enemy and inflict debuff.
  • While not being a melee weapon, it is affected by Flasks as well as the Magma Stone.
  • When using the Flask of Fire the duration of the first hit's Penetrated debuff is increased.
  • Skeletron is immune to the Penetrated debuff.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Penetrated debuff can never be applied to players, so it lacks a correct debuff icon. It instead uses a duplicate of the Distorted debuff's icon.
