Terraria Blowpipe and Jungle tier item review!


  • The Blowpipe, when used with seeds, is an early game item that becomes obsolete when the player obtains a Gun or a decent Bow. However, with Poison Darts, its damage is approximately doubled.
  • It is recommended to replace this item with the Blowgun once Queen Bee has been defeated and the Witch Doctor NPC moves in. 
  • Seeds are only obtainable as long as the player has a Blowpipe in their inventory.
    • If at least one of the players on a server has a Blowpipe or Blowgun in their inventory, Seeds will drop for all players.

Update Info


  • Now correctly listed as ranged.


  • Added to the game.
