The Gravitation Potion is a buff potion which grants the Gravitation buff when consumed. The buff allows the player to invert gravity with ▲ Up, making the screen appear upside-down and causing the player to fall upwards and walk on top of ceilings. The effect can be toggled while in midair. This lasts for 3 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), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (Nintendo 3DS version).

Notes

For more details about reversed gravity, see Reversed gravity.
  • While flipping gravity resets the player's fall distance, this potion does not negate fall damage on its own. Using a Featherfall Potion, wings, a Lucky Horseshoe, an Obsidian Horseshoe or any Horseshoe Balloon will make using Gravitation Potions a lot safer.
    • To negate fall damage using the Gravitation Potion alone, the player can flip gravity rapidly to cancel their momentum before landing.
  • In the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, there is the option to turn off "World Flips Upside Down", making it so only the player flips.
  • While flipping gravity on Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and using the Hoverboard's horizontal speed boost while having Hermes Boots or variation equipped will cause the boots speed boost to allow the user to run forever. If using the Hoverboard's fixed hover mode, then the user will stay in place forever.

Tips

  • It is helpful for finding Floating Islands by hovering up and down at the right altitude.
  • Gravitation effectively surpasses the combination of Rocket Boots and wings as the air travel method with the most range, though it is more difficult to control as a flight method.
  • It can be used during the Wall of Flesh fight to walk on the roof of the Underworld, avoiding the lava pools, abandoned houses, elevation changes, and Lava Slimes in Expert Mode.
  • It can be very disorienting when the screen flips upside-down. Players may find it useful to use one of the minimap modes as their main visual reference, as this is not flipped by the potion.

Trivia

  • Walking effects, such as the snowy effect when wearing a full set of Frost armor, will not be flipped.
