Thrown weapons

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Thrown weapons are generally single use damage-dealing items. Thrown weapons stack in a player's inventory, with one unit being removed from the stack every time it is used to attack, leaving the slot empty when the last has been used. Many thrown weapons are retrievable after being used.

On the Console Version Console versionMobile only.pngMobile version, and 3DS logo.svg version, thrown weapons deal ranged damage, and receive bonuses from items and effects that improve ranged damage, though they do not count as any particular type of ammunition for the purposes of Shroomite armor or similar effects.

On the Desktop Version Desktop version, thrown weapons are a unique damage type, featuring two weapons that deal thrown damage and two sets of armor that improve the stats of thrown weapons. As a result, in this version, thrown weapons do not receive most ranged bonuses. They are still affected by ammo reservation effects and the Frost armor's set bonus.

All thrown weapons are available prior to Hardmode. After this point, they are largely obsolete, though some are replaced by magic and melee weapons that operate in the same ways without being exhaustible.

It should be noted that both Thrown Water and explosives are thrown consumable weapons, however they do not deal thrown damage, nor are they affected by buffs, accessories, or any other factors.

Desktop Version Desktop-Only Content: This information applies only to the desktop version of Terraria.

The following armor sets provide the player specific bonuses to the use of thrown weapons. No such items exist on the Console Version Console versionMobile only.pngMobile version, and 3DS logo.svg version, though items that increase the stats of ranged weapons fill this same purpose there. The Ninja Outfit, while being available on Console Version ConsoleMobile only.pngMobile, and 3DS logo.svg, functions only as vanity.
