The Blowpipe firing Seeds.

The Blowpipe is a ranged weapon that auto-fires Seeds and darts as ammunition. When a Blowpipe is in a player's inventory, there is a chance that any vegetation growing on normal grass, in Clay Pots, and in Planter Boxes will yield some Seeds. Flowers typically drop 4 Seeds at a time, while tall grass typically drops 1–2 Seeds.

The Blowpipe can be found randomly in Wooden Chests near the Surface or in the Underground layer.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • The Seeds used by the Blowpipe cannot be planted. Conversely, seeds that can be planted cannot be used as ammo for the Blowpipe.
  • It cannot be obtained from Wooden Crates, despite the fact that many other rare items found in Wooden Chests can.
  • It does not receive any specialized boosts from the Shroomite armor headpieces, though it still receives the stealth boost.
  • It receives boosts from the Shroomite Helmet.


  • The Blowpipe is an efficient early-game weapon for eliminating distant foes, with significantly higher range than the Wooden Boomerang. One advantage it has over bows is that its ammunition can be obtained for free.
  • In early Hardmode, the Blowpipe and Blowgun are useful for firing Cursed or Ichor Darts. While the Blowgun is stronger overall, the Blowpipe fires faster and can be obtained without a Witch Doctor.
    • Cursed Darts deal decent damage and the necessary Cursed Flames can be obtained in the surface Corruption.
    • Ichor Darts are among the first items that can inflict the handy Ichor debuff. The Ichor needed to craft the darts can only be obtained in the Underground Crimson, though, an area that might be challenging at that stage of the game.
