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 enemies. Against multi-section monsters, a single Unholy Arrow can damage multiple sections. Console VersionOld-gen console version3DS version A fired Unholy Arrow has a 25*1/4 (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 in worlds that generated with Corruption. Furthermore, they can be purchased from the Arms Dealer at night once the Eater of Worlds or Brain of Cthulhu has been defeated. After activating Hardmode, they become available during the day as well.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Unholy Arrow's piercing is weaker than the Jester's Arrow, which can pierce an unlimited amount of enemies.
    • Desktop version However, the damage penalty after each piercing is smaller in the case of Unholy Arrows (5% as opposed to 10%).
  • 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.
    • Desktop and Mobile versions The Dryad sells Corrupt Seeds in a Graveyard biome, letting players create an artificial Corruption on Crimson worlds. By spreading the Corruption, it is possible to obtain Worm Teeth. However this method might be impractical, as it could be bought anyways.
