The Ice Bow firing Frost Arrows.

The Ice Bow is a Hardmode bow that converts any type of arrow into special Frost Arrows which travel faster with less of an arc as a result and lose any special properties, but retain increased damage when used with stronger arrows. However, unlike the craftable Frostburn Arrows, they do not inflict the Frostburn debuff. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, it is capable of autofire. The Ice Bow has a 19/60 (31.67%) chance to be dropped by Ice Mimics in the Ice biome.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • In don't dig up(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Get fixed boi(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) seeds, the Ice Bow receives the following changes:
    • Switched place with Snowball Cannon. As a result, it is found in Frozen Chests, or dropped by Ice Mimics during pre-Hardmode, instead of dropped by Ice Mimics during Hardmode.
    • Damage decreased from 39 to 8.
    • Use time increased from 14 to 17.
    • Value decreased from 25 GC to 10 GC.


  • Like other bows that fire special arrows, the Ice Bow is especially effective to use with the Endless Quiver.


  • The Ice Bow is very similar in function to the Marrow, as they are both early Hardmode weapons obtainable underground, both shoot a unique high-velocity projectile, and before, had a very similar stat distribution.
