The Chlorophyte Shotbow in use.

The Chlorophyte Shotbow is a Hardmode repeater crafted using Chlorophyte Bars. It shoots Desktop and Mobile versions 2–3 / Console and Old-gen console versions 3DS version 2–4 arrows per shot but only consumes one arrow, as with all other multi-shot bows. Arrows fired with the Chlorophyte Shotbow cannot be recovered regardless of the type of arrow used.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Notes[]

  • When used with arrows that deal piercing damage (Unholy Arrows, Jester's Arrows, Hellfire Arrows, Console and Old-gen console versions 3DS version Chlorophyte Arrows), only one arrow will deal damage to each enemy per shot, making the shotbow far less effective.
  • The average number of arrows fired per shot is Desktop and Mobile versions 2.33 / Console and Old-gen console versions 3DS version 2.7.
  • Due to variance in the number of arrows fired per shot, the effective base damage of the Shotbow ranges between 68 and Desktop and Mobile versions 102 / Console and Old-gen console versions 3DS version 136 damage. It is also more strongly affected by the base damage of arrows than single-shot bows or repeaters.

Tips[]

  • The Shotbow's lower base damage can be compensated for by using Ichor Arrows, which decrease defense.
  • The Chlorophyte Shotbow is a devastating weapon when used with Holy Arrows, providing great single-target DPS while also summoning storms of 6 to 12 stars per shot, which offer crowd control. It is one of the best weapons to use against Plantera.
  • While the Shotbow has less base damage per arrow than the Hallowed Repeater, the spread is tight enough that targets will usually be hit with more than one arrow per shot, resulting in higher damage output overall.
    • However, the Hallowed Repeater remains superior to the shotbow when using piercing arrows (with the possible exception of Hellfire Arrows against dense crowds), due to the latter's anti-synergy with piercing arrows.

Trivia[]

History[]

  • Desktop 1.4.0.1: Average arrows per shot decreased from 2.7 to 2.33. Can no longer fire more than three arrows per shot.
