Launchers

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Launchers are a variety of Hardmode ranged weapons that fire Rockets. While all use the same ammunition, each delivers munitions in varied ways. Rockets generally explode on contact with an enemy or solid block, dealing heavy damage within the area of the explosion. They can often damage the player if not fired carefully. All Launchers benefit from the damage bonus of the Shroomite Helmet, as well as other Ranged bonuses. They can only be obtained post-Plantera.

Other launchers[edit | edit source]

A few other weapons are classified by the game as "rocket" type weapons, and are affected by bonuses that specifically boost rockets, despite not firing actual Rockets as ammunition.
