Underground Snow

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Underground Snow is a biome, and is the underground version of the Snow biome, starting at the Cavern layer and stopping at the lava layer. On the Mobile version Mobile version the Underground Snow biome ends before the cavern layer and starting at the underground instead of ones on Desktop version Desktop version and Console version Console version of Terraria. It is composed mainly of Snow Blocks and Ice Blocks. Thin Ice can be found generated over water and breaks when a character falls over 4 tiles onto it (unless using the Ice Skates or another accessory crafted from them). The Underground Snow biome is the only place where Ice Chests can be found.

In Hardmode, the Corruption, Crimson, and Hallow can spread through it, generating Purple, Red, and Pink Ice Blocks respectively. They are unable to spread through Snow Blocks.

On the Mobile version Mobile version and 3DS version 3DS version, normal-sized worlds only have a 1/3 chance of containing a snow biome, and their respective underground. Furthermore, Armored Vikings, Snow Flinx, Icy Mermen, Ice Tortoises and Ice Mimics will spawn much more rarely than on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Old-gen console version Old-gen console version.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Most enemies in the Underground Snow biome, as well as surface Snow biome inflict the Chilled debuff, and more rarely the Frozen debuff.
  • On the Mobile version Mobile version, it is the only place where Heart Shrines generate, so it may be worth traveling to an Underground Snow biome to find one.
