Crimtane Bars are the alternate version of Demonite Bars as of 1.2. They are the refined form of Crimtane Ore, which can only be found if the world has the Crimson instead of the Corruption.


  • Items crafted from Crimtane deal more damage per hit than their Demonite counterparts, but are generally slower.
  • A lot of items made from Crimtane Bars tend to also need Tissue Samples, an item the player can get from destroying the Creepers, as well as the Brain of Cthulhu itself.

Update Info


  • Sprite update.
  • Changed crafting recipe from 4 ore to 3.


  • Added to the game.
