Desktop version A player triggering the effect of Bone Glove using Minishark.

Console and Mobile versions A player attacking Target Dummies with the Bone Glove.

The Bone Glove is an Expert Mode-exclusive item obtained from the Treasure Bag dropped by Skeletron.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, the Bone Glove is an accessory which throws two crossed bones every time a weapon is used, at maximum once per second. The bones can bounce off walls three times or pierce two enemies before being destroyed, deal 25 classless damage, and additionally have 25 armor penetration.

On the Console version Console version and Mobile version Mobile version, the Bone Glove is a throwing weapon which allows the player to throw two crossed bones that can bounce off walls three times or pierce two enemies before being destroyed. It consumes one Bone per throw and has a 33.33*1/3 (33.33%) chance not to consume any.

Console and Mobile versions Its best modifier is Unreal. This is a modifier usually exclusive to ranged weapons, but, since the Bone Glove is considered a throwing weapon, it receives stat bonuses from Fossil armor and Ninja armor but is unaffected by ranged-specific bonuses such as those from the Ranger Emblem.

Notes[]

  • Console Version It is a unique throwing weapon in that it is not consumed upon use, but instead requires ammunition, much like ranged weapons. It shares this trait with the Ale Tosser.
  • Console and Mobile versions If the Bone Glove hits an enemy right next to the player, the amount of damage dealt excludes the Bones' damage, only the Bone Glove's base damage counts.

Tips[]

  • The Bone Glove is a useful weapon inside the Dungeon's tight corridors, because it bounces three times.

Trivia[]

  • Console and Mobile versions The Bone Glove is one of the few Expert Mode items that cannot be equipped in any accessory or equipment slots, the others being the three parts needed to craft the Mechanical Cart and the Demon Heart. Apart from developer items, it is also the only weapon in the game that can only be acquired through Expert Mode.
