The Smoke Bomb can be bought from the Party Girl NPC. When thrown, it creates a pillar of smoke about 10 blocks high and 5 blocks wide, lasting for about one minute.
This item can be useful in PVP fights. It shrouds your position making it difficult for enemy players to spot and target you.
- If you are making a Terraria Movie/video, you can make an escape scene with a Smoke Bomb. This works the best on multiplayer where a player can leave while another player is still recording. For the best effects, the camera man should have F11 mode active (this hides the GUI and thus the "player left" message). The escaping actor should throw a Smoke Bomb straight down, making it smoke right below the player, hiding them, and then the player should use a Magic Mirror or leave the server (if on multiplayer).
