The Javelin is a consumable throwing weapon. It can pierce up to three enemies and has a long range, flying straight for approximately thirty-six blocks before dropping abruptly. Javelins have no chance of dropping itself after impacting a block or hitting an enemy. It is only dropped by Hoplites found in the Marble biome.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite not being a melee weapon, it is affected by Flasks.
  • Javelins travel at a speed of 53mph.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This is useful during events such as Slime Rain and the Blood Moon where its piercing properties, decent damage, and fast throw speed allow it to efficiently destroy crowds.
  • Javelins can be quickly farmed in massive quantities from a Hoplite Statue.
