Thrown weapons are weapons thrown by the player to hit monsters a long distance away. They will ricochet off of enemies and walls, and will return to the player after striking either.

There are also piercing thrown weapons, which will travel through enemies instead of ricocheting, making them useful for fighting large groups of enemies or larger enemies such as the Eye of Cthulhu as they can hit them multiple times while passing through them. The following are thrown, ammunition-based weapons:
