Ammunition items

From Terraria Wiki
(Redirected from Ammunition)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Ammunition items are consumable items fired by ranged weapons. To fire a weapon that requires ammunition, a compatible ammunition type must be present in the player's inventory. The ammunition will be taken from the first stack of suitable ammunition, checked in the following order: The four dedicated ammo slots of the inventory from top to bottom, then the main inventory from the top row (hotbar) to the bottom row, going from left to right within each row.

Each type of ammunition adds its damage, velocity, and knockback to the base value of the weapon that fires it. Damage bonuses also apply to the damage of bullets and arrows. Some weapons, armor, accessories, and buffs offer a chance for each shot to "conserve" ammo, firing a shot as usual without consuming the ammunition. If multiple such items and/or buffs are active, their respective chances to conserve ammo are combined.

Wire

Wire is used to connect mechanisms to triggers and can be placed and removed using various tools. Placed wire will assume the color of the Wrench used, but will always appear as Wirered wire when dropped or placed in inventory or ammo slots. See Wire for more information, and a complete list of available tools.

Ammo conservation

By default, every item of ammo fired will be consumed, i.e. removed from the player's inventory. There are certain items, however, that add a chance to prevent consuming the item, effectively conserving ammo occasionally. The following items have a chance not to consume ammo:

Weapons
Item Chance
Bone GloveBone Glove

Vortex BeaterVortex Beater 66.67*2/3 (66.67%)

Magic QuiverMagic Quiver(for arrows only) 20*1/5 (20%)
Ammo BoxAmmo Box 20*1/5 (20%)

Chlorophyte HelmetChlorophyte Helmet[1] 20*1/5 (20%)
20*1/5 (20%)
25*1/4 (25%)
10*1/10 (10%)

Ammo conservation effects are treated as non-mutually exclusive events, calculated with the following formula:[2]

p_\{total\}\_\e\_p_1\_+\_p_2\_-\_p_1\_\\times\_p_2

For example, using a Minishark (p_1\_\e\_\\frac\{1\}\{3\}) with an Ammo Box (p_2\_\e\_\\frac\{1\}\{5\}) results in a total chance of p_\{total\}\_\e\_\\frac\{7\}\{15\} (46.67% not to consume ammo):

p_\{total\}\_\e\_\\frac\{1\}\{3\}\_+\_\\frac\{1\}\{5\}\_-\_\\frac\{1\}\{3\}\_\\times\_\\frac\{1\}\{5\}\_\e\_\\frac\{7\}\{15\}

The highest conservation possible is attainable by using a Phantasm with a Magic Quiver, an Ammo Box, an Ammo Reservation Potion, a Vortex Breastplate and a Chlorophyte Helmet. It amounts to 89.8%, which means that, on average, only 102 out of 1000 arrows will be consumed.

Tips

  • Using armor that conserves ammo will also conserve the solutions (ammo) for the Clentaminator when worn.
  • The following ammo items do not automatically get placed into the ammo slots. If the player is running low on inventory space and still has ammo slots open, these items can be placed there to conserve space.

  1. On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, Mobile version Mobile, and Nintendo Switch version Switch, the helmet stacks with Shroomite Breastplate, Fossil armor (although it is of course technically impossible to stack with a set bonus), etc., therefore it is in a separate row. On the other platforms, it does not stack with them.
