The Bottomless Lava Bucket is an item that functions similarly to the standard Lava Bucket, except that it never runs out of Lava and can place it slightly faster than a regular lava bucket (especially when moving the cursor around while filling). It is obtained as a rare drop from fishing in lava.

This is the lava counterpart of the Bottomless Water Bucket.


  • Unlike the Bottomless Water Bucket, this item is not an Angler quest reward.


  • This item can be used to create infinite Obsidian when paired with the Bottomless Water Bucket, but note the Bottomless Water Bucket is hardmode.
    • This can be used to attain infinite money, albeit slowly, by crafting and selling Obsidian Skulls.
  • It can be used in mid-air to create a platform to step on with Lava Waders, resetting any extra jumps.
  • When combined with the Superheated Blood (Lava Shark) mount, and with some practice, this item can be used to grant fast infinite flight in pre-Hardmode by pouring it over oneself repeatedly. This will however quickly flood the area with lava.
    • This technique can be used to avoid the Wall of Flesh when it reaches a very high speed.


  • Even though it can be obtained pre-Hardmode, it has the same Lime rarity as the Bottomless Water Bucket.
