Wooden Arrows are only sold by the Skeleton Merchant during these moon phases.

Wooden Arrows are the most basic type of arrow. They can be used as ammunition for all types of bows and are also the base of the crafting recipes for several more powerful arrow types. Wooden Arrows can be crafted, found in Pots and chests, dropped by Pincushion Zombies, and can be purchased from the Merchant for 5*5 Copper Coin.png each. They can also be purchased from the Skeleton MerchantDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version for 5*5 Copper Coin.png during moon phases 3, 4, 7, and 8.

A fired Wooden Arrow has a 1/3 (33.3%) chance of being recoverable after hitting an enemy or a block (only when shot from a weapon that fires one arrow at a time). When shot with certain bows, regular Wooden Arrows will transform into another special projectile (such as the Molten Fury, which will transform them into a version of Flaming Arrows). Some other bows, such as the Pulse BowDesktop VersionConsole VersionOld-gen console versionMobile Version, convert any type of arrow to their special variant.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Wooden Arrows lose utility early on as better arrows become available, but they remain a considerably cheaper and more accessible alternative for bows that convert shots into special arrows, such as the Marrow, Ice Bow and SharangaOld-gen console version3DS Version, as these gain no benefit from the special properties of more expensive ammo types. In Hardmode, the Endless QuiverDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version may be a better alternative for this use case.
  • Wooden Arrows should be upgraded to Flaming Arrows or Frostburn Arrows, as that does not require a lot of resources but greatly increases their usefulness.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The darts fired from a Dart Trap bear a strong resemblance to Wooden Arrows.
  • Old-gen console version3DS Version Along with Heart Arrows, Wooden Arrows deal the lowest amount of damage of all types of arrows.
