Tungsten Ore is an early game ore which spawns in the Underground and Cavern layers as well as on Floating Islands. Its primary use is to make Tungsten Bars, which can be used to make the Tungsten tier of equipment. The equivalent of Tungsten Ore is Silver Ore, which will sometimes replace Tungsten on a world. Tungsten Ore has a small chance to appear as a bonus drop from slimes.
