Bows are a type of ranged weapon that fire arrows as ammunition. Unlike repeaters, the majority of bows are not capable of autofire, especially those obtainable in pre-Hardmode.

The best modifier for bows is Unreal, with the exception of the Wooden Bow and early ore bows, whose lack of knockback make their best modifier Demonic or Rapid instead.

Types[]

There are currently 32 different bows available in Terraria, 11 of which are Hardmode-exclusive.
