High Velocity Bullets are a type of ammo obtainable after you have defeated at least one mechanical boss and are the fastest traveling bullets in the game. They travel at the same speed as bullets fired from the Sniper Rifle. They are one of 6 types of craftable ammunition made from Empty Bullets, which are sold by the Arms Dealer after Hardmode has been enabled.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, they will pierce up to two enemies, coming to a stop when hitting the third. However, the second target will only take 85% of the base damage, and the third target will only take 85% of that.

The cost of a stack of 50 High Velocity Bullets is 950, which is 19 per bullet. The cost of crafting 1000 High Velocity Bullets (20 stacks of 50) is 190.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • High Velocity Bullets update their position 8 times a second instead of one, which means their effective velocity is (4 + weaponVelocity) × 8.
  • Velocity is the speed at which a projectile travels through space once fired from a weapon. Higher velocity makes hitting distant, fast moving targets easier for the player, as less movement tracking is required.
  • When fired, the bullets glow bright yellow.
  • The Uzi, Venus Magnum, and Sniper Rifle effectively turn Musket Balls into High Velocity Bullets by improving their velocity. This doesn't affect their other stats, however Desktop version it does allow them to pierce.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • High Velocity Bullets can be devastating in PvP situations, especially against players wearing high-tier wings, accessories, and armor that increase player speed, as properly timing and aiming shots is less important.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If fired at close range, the bullets may seem invisible due to their very large sprite.
