For a sortable list of every weapon in the game, see List of weapons. For weapon setup ideas, see Guide:Weapon setups.

Weapons are essential items used for combat against enemies, bosses, and even other players during PvP games. They typically deal more damage than their tool counterparts. Some weapons can be crafted at a Work Bench or a Pre-Hardmode/Hardmode Anvil, while others can only be found in Chests, as enemy drops, or purchased from NPCs. Terraria has a wide variety of weapons and weapons classes, each suited to particular play styles or specific tasks.

Melee weapons[edit | edit source]

Pre-Hardmode Swords[edit | edit source]

Swords are melee weapons which can be divided into 2 basic categories: Shortswords, and Broadswords. Shortswords have a very limited range and attack with a horizontal stabbing motion instead of an arc. Broadswords are swung overhead, which makes it easier to defeat flying and jumping enemies than shortswords.

Pre-Hardmode Spears[edit | edit source]

Spears are melee weapons that have decent range (somewhat better than swords), but attack using a stabbing motion (like a shortsword, except that spears can be aimed). Spears also have a good chance of hitting targets more than once, especially large enemies.

Pre-Hardmode Boomerangs[edit | edit source]

Boomerangs are melee weapons that come back to the player after being thrown. Their damage is listed as melee likely because they're physically thrown and use no ammo.

Pre-Hardmode Flails[edit | edit source]

Flails are melee weapons that consist of an object linked to the player by a chain, which can either be thrown or fired. Thrown flails can be suspended around the player indefinitely, whereas launched flails immediately return to the player.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In total, there are 389 weapons: 149 melee weapons (80 Swords, 18 Spears, 11 Boomerangs, 13 Flails, 20 Yoyos, 7 Others); 91 ranged weapons (30 Bows, 10 Repeaters, 26 Guns, 9 Explosives, 16 Others); 68 magic weapons (32 Wands, 13 Magic Guns, 9 Spell Tomes, 14 Others); 29 summoning weapons (13 General, 16 Sentry); 20 throwing weapons (15 Thrown Items, 5 Grenades); and 32 other weapons (4 Placeable, 16 Combat Tools, 9 Explosives, 3 Others).
  • If an enemy is under the effect of a constant-damaging or piercing attack, it will cause a brief invulnerability to it, making blows that hit during this interval fail to inflict damage.
  • Unlike most games, no matter how far an enemy is from the center of the blast radius, they always receive full damage from an AoE attack.
