Luminite Arrows are one of the strongest arrows in the game, due to their secondary effect. Fired Luminite arrows are followed by a laser-like projectile after a short delay. They have a fast travel time and can pierce up to 5 enemies. Luminite Arrows are not recoverable after use.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Both Luminite Arrows and their bolts reduce their damage by 4% each time they damage an enemy.
  • The bolts appear after an approximately ~1 second delay after firing the arrows.
  • Secondary bolts will originate at the same position where the arrows were initially fired, regardless of player position or movement.
  • The number of secondary bolts will be equivalent to the number of arrows released in the first shot e.g. a Tsunami will cause 5 bolts to be released after the initial shot.
  • Unlike many other arrows, both Luminite arrows and their bolts have a limited range. They will evaporate in the air if they exceed this maximum range.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • A full stack of 999 Luminite arrows can be crafted from just 3 Luminite Bars.
  • It can be difficult to hit a moving enemy with the secondary bolts. Try leading your enemies on a long, flat surface (e.g. a Skybridge) so they can be damaged by both the arrows and their bolts.
  • Luminite arrows synergize especially powerfully with the Phantasm bow.
    • Phantasm releases 4 arrows (and 4 secondary lasers) while consuming only 1 arrow from your inventory.
    • It has a powerful 66% chance not to consume arrows, which is very desirable considering the value of Luminite.
    • A successful hit with Phantasm can allow for a triple hit on your enemy: first your initial shot, then Phantasm's secondary projectiles, and lastly the bolts from Luminite arrows.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The quote "Shooting them down at the speed of sound" may be a reference to a line in "Escape from the City" from the Sonic franchise; "Rolling around at the speed of sound".
