Unholy Arrows are a type of arrow. Compared to the Wooden Arrows used to craft them, they are stronger and have a piercing effect, allowing each arrow to hit up to 5 monsters. Against multi-section monsters, a single Unholy Arrow can damage multiple sections. A fired Unholy Arrow has a 25% chance of being recoverable after hitting an enemy or a wall.

In addition to being crafted, Unholy Arrows are dropped by the Eye of Cthulhu, but only on worlds that generated with Corruption. After defeating the Eater of Worlds or Brain of Cthulhu, the Arms Dealer begins selling Unholy Arrows at night. After activating Hardmode, they become available during the day as well.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to requiring Worm Teeth, which only drop from Devourers and have no Crimson equivalent, Unholy Arrows are not possible to craft in worlds that generate with Crimson without transferring materials (ideally Worm Teeth) from a world with The Corruption. However, it is possible to purchase them from the Arms Dealer even on Crimson worlds.
