Chilled is a debuff inflicted by monsters in the Snow biome. In Expert mode, it is also caused by being in water located in a Snow biome. The debuff can be prevented with the Hand Warmer, or, on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, and tModLoader version tModLoader version, the Ankh Shield. Additionally, Arctic Diving Gear will protect the player from the Expert mode water effect, but not other sources of Chilled. Like the Slow debuff, it reduces the player's speed, but not as severely.

Most enemies that can inflict Chilled can also inflict the Frozen debuff.

  • While this debuff is active, moving causes sounds and dust effects similar to those of the Hermes Boots.
  • Chilled even affects movement on most mounts (except Slime Mount and most to all flying Mounts Verify).
  • When entering water while this debuff is active, the timer on the debuff will be invisible.
    • This does not apply when player has the debuff longer than 5 seconds inside the Tundra biome.
