Bows

Bows are the most basic Ranged Weapons that you can craft. The majority of Bows are made out of 7 of their representative material, except the Demon Bow (which requires 8) and the Molten Fury (which requires 25). Any Bow can use any Arrow as ammo.

Repeaters are upgraded versions of Bows which are aesthetically based on crossbows. The only mechanical difference between Bows and repeaters is that the latter have the Autoreuse property.

The total damage of a shot fired from a Bow is calculated by adding the its damage to the Arrow's damage, and then applying any available bonuses from other equipment and/or buffs. Arrows travel in an arc shape and begin to drop after they've traveled about 12 blocks from where they were fired. Arrows can also pass through platforms you've built, making it possible to shoot at monsters safely from above or below.

Notes

  • The highest damage that can be dealt with a Bow as of 1.2 is ~88* (Ice Bow (43) with Cursed Arrow (14), Archery Potion (+20% arrow damage), Ranger Emblem (+15% total damage), and Necro Armor (+24% damage from full set)).
  • The highest damage that can be dealt with a Repeater as of 1.2.1 is ~132* (Stake Launcher (80) with Cursed Arrow (14), Archery Potion (+20% arrow damage), Ranger Emblem (+15% total damage), and Necro Armor (+24% damage from full set)).
