- If players are willing to take the risk of navigating the Underground Jungle early on, the Amazon can be acquired within the first few days of starting a new world.
- Due to the Amazon's high base damage and long flight time, this provides them with a very powerful starting weapon. It is even useful for the first bosses, like the Eye of Cthulhu and the Brain of Cthulhu.
- The Amazon even outperforms both the Malaise and the Artery in damage, making it an ideal weapon for after Eye of Cthulhu.
- In order to gather Stingers, Spiked Jungle Slimes can be trapped behind walls and killed safely. When going for such a strategy, the player is advised to be on the lookout for Man Eaters and Hornets, as they are able to quickly kill a new character.
- In Expert Mode, Stingers are a guaranteed drop from the enemies that drop it. The Amazon can thus be obtained more quickly than on normal mode.
- Jungle Spores are usually found in small caves surrounded by mud blocks. Man Eaters can move through blocks and cause considerably high damage; to avoid this problem, new players should stay in open spaces that allow some movement to dodge the attacks.
- Its high sale price makes it a decent source of money when the required materials are available. While the yoyo is worth 130, its ingredients only sell for 860 (6.62% of the yoyo's value). In 1.4 versions, other crafts with the same materials can be more profitable; see the Guide to Making Money for more details.
