Player using Rope.
For items that operates similarly, see Streamers and Chain.
Rope is an item that primarily provides quick vertical mobility. It can be placed adjacent to blocks in any direction, or in midair where background walls exist. Once placed, Rope is used by pressing or while moving over it. Streamers and Chains operate identically to Rope, but cannot be crafted into Rope Coils.

All Rope variants operate identically, but silk and web ropes are immune to falling lava as opposed to normal and vine ropes which will be dislodged similar to torches.

All ropes are acquired in different ways:

Visually, the player appears to move along Rope using a mechanical tool with wheels, as though they were riding a rail (this tool appears automatically when using Rope, and does not exist as a separate item).

Vertical movement speed on Rope equals that of a freefall, though moving down via Rope and hitting the ground will not cause Fall Damage. Sideways movement is also possible, by placing adjacent Rope horizontally, but is much slower. Rope can be placed atop existing placed Rope, which will extend the total length of the rope downward, without the player actually having to be at the bottom of the Rope column.

10 Rope can be crafted into a Rope Coil, which produces the same resulting Rope placement, but cannot be placed directly. It is instead thrown at blocks. On impact, a Rope Coil becomes a placed vertical stack of ten Ropes. If the throw misses blocks, it drops as the Rope Coil item. If it impacts but cannot extend down 10 tiles due to other blocks in the way, the excess Ropes drop as Rope items. Rope Coils cannot be hung in midair from background walls, as the ordinary Rope item can.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All varieties of rope include a "+3 range" attribute, not unlike Wrenches and Wire Cutters, that allows the item to be used from further away. As in the case of the wrenches and wire cutters, this does not affect players utilizing placed ropes.
  • Ascent speed is 41 mph. Descent speed is 51 mph.
  • A glitch in the 3DS version causes rope to multiply downwards at no extra rope cost if an eighth piece of rope is added to a vertical string of 7 pieces of rope. The multiplication is finite, however, and it will eventually stop.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Rope works very well for building Hellevators because players descend at the same speed as free-fall, and ascend fairly quickly as well. It's very easy to obtain and can be placed at the top of the Hellevator over and over again to bring the rope all the way down.
  • The player can also place rope even if the top is anchored to nothing, and can even extend it skyward, the only requirement being that the original rope is anchored to a block or background wall. This can be used to easily access Floating Islands: build a rope column upwards while climbing skyward. Similarly, rope can be used quickly ascend to the surface when you are exploring the ocean.
  • Flying into a rope and continuing to move on the rope will maintain the velocity of flight.
  • Making silk rope instead of cobweb rope is better as silk requires less amounts of cobweb thus allowing the player to make more rope. (The difference of the amount of ropes is 9. you can get 30 silk ropes for the value of 21 web ropes.)
