The Flamelash is a spell weapon that summons a flaming projectile that can be controlled with mouse movement. It is the second tier of missile spells: stronger than the Magic Missile, but weaker than the Rainbow Rod. It is located in Shadow Chests in the Underworld. Once it hits something it disappears.

Terraria - Magic Missile flamelash

Flamelash Particles

With the fireball particles, the player can find ores and caves.


  • While controlling the projectile the player will slowly regenerate mana, it will also disappear in 1 minute after cast, so the player will need to be time-efficient.
  • The Flamelash emits light and sparks that fall far down before decaying. This makes it useful for exploring large caves or looking for ore deposits directly beneath the fireball.
  • The fireball will vanish upon hitting an enemy once, hitting a solid block, hitting water, or after a set period of time.
  • The Flamelash cannot be used underwater.

Update Info


  • Removed usability underwater.
  • Spell is cancelled upon contact with water.


  • Has a chance to inflict On Fire! debuff.
  • Can now be fired in a specific direction with a single click.
