Hellfire Arrows are a type of ammunition which creates a small explosion upon impact similar to Grenades, damaging everything in the area Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versionsexcept the player. These arrows can be very useful against tight packs of enemies and worms such as Bone Serpents, as the explosion may damage multiple segments.

They are always destroyed on impact, and have a noticeably higher velocity than other arrows.

They can be found in Shadow Chests and Pots in The Underworld, crafted at an anvil, or purchased from the Demolitionist for 100*1 each, once the Wall of Flesh has been defeated.
