When shot, it creates a particle effect that illuminates the area. It creates a small explosion upon impact similar to that of a Grenade. Hellfire Arrows cannot be regathered after being shot, probably because of the explosion destroying the arrow. They can be bought from the Demolitionist after enabling Hard Mode (defeating the Wall of Flesh).
Hellfire Arrows are largely available after Hard Mode, being able to be found, crafted and bought. Pots in the Underworld can provide about 10 at a time and Wooden Arrows can be crafted into Hellfire Arrows in sets of 100 using one Hellstone Bar and 100 Wooden Arrows. Some consider these arrows as some of the best in the game, being widely available and inflicting heavy damage. A disadvantage, though, is that they are expensive to make and to buy in large quantities. They can't be retrieved up after being shot.
