A Grenade thrown at a Target Dummy.

Would you rather have a bullet hole or a grenade hole? That's what I thought.

The Demolitionist

Grenades are explosive consumable ranged / throwing weapons which can be purchased from the Demolitionist for 75 each, or found rarely in natural Chests. Once Hardmode is activated, they can be found in Pots (replacing Shurikens).

A thrown Grenade will bounce slightly and roll until it either hits a valid target or 3 seconds have elapsed, after which it will explode.

  • Grenades do ranged damage, and thus the base damage of 60 is increased by any ranged damage modifier. Ranged armor set bonuses apply as well; e.g. the Frost Armor, which causes Grenades to inflict the Frostburn debuff.
  • Grenades do throwing damage, so ranged armor set bonuses will not apply. Throwing armor set bonuses will, however.
  • Grenades damage all enemies within a radius of approximately 5 tiles.


  • Grenades are extremely useful early-game, dealing enormous damage for such an easy weapon to acquire.
  • Because Grenades automatically explode when they hit an enemy, using them as short-ranged weapons is risky as they can easily cause self-inflicted damage.
  • As Grenades do splash damage, they can be useful against a large number of different enemies:
  • Using Grenades against a Caster AI enemy is especially inadvisable. A Grenade can easily explode upon hitting one of the enemy's projectiles, often much closer to the player than anticipated.


  • The sprite is very similar to the American M67 grenade, a grenade produced since 1968.
  • Despite the similarities in name, it cannot be used as ammo for the Grenade Launcher.
