This is a list of Known Bugs in the Console Version of Terraria.

Since the 1.2 update there have been a lot of bugs and glitches so please write them down so people know and be careful.


Current Bugs

  • Xbox One: When fishing with auto pause on, after approximately a second has passed, opening the inventory and dropping an item will cause more functioning lures to be released like the original. This can be done multiple times in succession to catch a large amount of fish at once though it is hard to tell when all the lures have caught an item since the sound will be played by each. (may be patched)
  • Xbox One: Commonly when changing dyes for pets, light pets, and grappling hooks it will cause the sprites for all pets, light pets, grappling hooks, summons, projectiles (including those from traps) and, spells to become invisible while still being able to damage the player and enemies. This bug can also happen when dying with many sprites visible. This can be fixed by completely exiting out of the game. (Bug has been fixed)
  • Xbox One: Dropping an item (with auto pause on) will cause your held item to be used. If the held item is a health potion it will use it normally without causing the potion sickness debuff allowing for quick life restoration when in combat.
  • Xbox One: The map will reset when going into a world. The cause is unknown (to me) and seems to be able to be fixed by visiting another world. One returning to the first world the map will be how it was after the bug meaning will not be how it was before it occurred but how it was when you last left until the next occurrence.

  • Icon xbox360 If you use a Fairy Bell or a Shadow Orb while having the Wisp and any pet active, the Fairy/Shadow Orb will spawn, but the Wisp will not despawn despite the buff also being removed.
