The Dangersense Potion is a buff potion that grants the Dangersense buff when consumed. The buff reveals hazardous blocks and objects (that can potentially harm or impede the player) by highlighting them in red, even in complete darkness. This lasts for 10 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (Console version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Old-gen console version), or by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version).

List of hazards

  • (Old-gen console version) Cobwebs will be marked with red sparkle particles instead of being highlighted like other hazards.


  • The ability to locate Cobwebs makes finding Spider Nests much easier.
    • In addition to Spider Nests, Dangersense Potions can also be used to find caverns by following patches of Cobweb.
  • The ability to see traps, including pressure plates, makes traversing the Dungeon and Jungle Temple much easier.
  • Dangersense Potions make it much easier to also collect traps for your own purposes, such as Jungle Temple traps, or Geyser in caverns.
  • Dangersense Potions can highlight Cracked Dungeon Bricks in the Dungeon, making finding hidden passages trivial.
  • When using a boss arena with traps such as boulders, this potion can be useful for dodging them while still being able to concentrate on the fight.


  • The Dangersense Potion is named TrapsightPotion internally.
