Animation of the Javelin.

The Javelin is a consumable ranged weapon. It can pierce up to three enemies and has a long range, flying straight for approximately thirty-six tiles before dropping abruptly. Javelins have no chance of dropping themselves after impacting blocks or hitting enemies. They are only obtainable from Hoplites found in Marble Caves, which drop 40–80 Javelins with a 50*1/2 (50%) chance.

Notes[]

Tips[]

  • Javelins are useful during events such as Slime Rain and Blood Moon, where their piercing properties, decent damage, and fast throw speed allow them to efficiently destroy crowds.
  • Javelins can be quickly farmed in massive quantities from a Hoplite Statue.

Trivia[]

  • Javelins move at a speed of 59 mph.
