Ranged weapons

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
For a sortable list of all available ranged weapons, along with their stats for comparison, see List of ranged weapons.

Ranged weapons are weapons which are used in ranged combat. The defining trait of ranged weapons is their requirement of ammunition in order for the weapon to operate.

Ranged weapons are roughly categorized into bows, repeaters, guns, and launchers. Note that Terraria classifies boomerangs as melee weapons and consumables as thrown weapons.

Due to the usage of ammo alongside the weapon, the total damage and knockback values in effect during use are actually the sum of the weapon's stats combined with those of the ammo type used. A ranged weapon with a knockback value of zero, for example, will still usually apply some knockback, since nearly all ammunition types have their own knockback values.

The following lists present all ranged weapons along with their damage and how to acquire them. The intention of this is to convey an idea of their strength and the approximate time during gameplay at which they can be obtained. For a sortable list that displays all statistics of all ranged weapons, see List of ranged weapons.
