The Lava Waders are an accessory that allow the player to walk on the surface of all liquids, including water, honey, and even lava, without taking lava damage or triggering the On Fire! debuff (unlike the Water Walking Boots and Obsidian Water Walking Boots, which only allow walking on water and honey).

Lava Waders also allow the player to submerge in lava safely for 7 seconds (press the ▼ Down key to submerge), without incurring lava damage or triggering the On Fire! debuff. The 7-second countdown is signified by a lava meter that displays over the player's head, similar to the Breath meter, but displaying flame icons instead of bubbles. Lava immunity time is recharged gradually by exiting lava, the same way breathing time is recharged by exiting water (albeit much more slowly).

All liquids, including lava, can be walked on indefinitely while the Lava Waders are equipped. The countdown only applies when submerged in lava, whereas the player can stand on its surface indefinitely.

Lava Waders additionally provide immunity to the Burning debuff incurred from contact with Meteorite, Hellstone or Hellstone Brick.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It is still possible to fall through lava whenever there is a change in its fluid level (e.g. when standing on lava and mining Hellstone).

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Lava Waders are beneficial for mining Hellstone, and during the Wall of Flesh fight(s), if a walkway has not been built.
  • Equipping the Flipper in addition makes it possible to swim in lava, while being immune to its effects for 7 seconds.
  • Lava Waders let the player walk in thin layers of Lava, such as those used in traps and farms without destroying drops, without using up the 7 second lava immunity.
  • The Lava Charm, Molten Charm Desktop Version, Hellfire Treads Desktop Version, Terraspark Boots Desktop Version, and Demonic Hellcart Desktop Version stack with the Lava Waders to increase lava immunity by 7 seconds each to a maximum total of 42 Desktop Version / 14 Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile Version3DS Version seconds.
