This article is about the items. For systems that can run Terraria, see Game platform.

Platforms are a special type of block that can be walked on, but also allow movement through the space they occupy. The player normally stands and walks on platforms as if they were ordinary blocks, and they can move down through a platform by pressing the ▼ Down key while standing on one. Players can also walk or jump horizontally through the space occupied by platforms, only treating the platform as "solid" when landing on them from above.

Walking enemies can similarly walk on or pass through platforms. Flying enemies like bats will fly up through them, but not down. Other enemies, including Harpies, ignore them entirely. NPCs will always climb up platforms.

Weapons and their projectiles will travel through platforms. Liquids flow through platforms, and lava will destroy all platforms upon contact, with the exception of Obsidian, Stone and Ash Wood Platforms. Gravity-affected blocks like Sand will be supported by platforms.

Because of the high mobility provided by platforms, they can be used in a variety of ways: as a bridge across gaps that players can descend through without destroying, for roof access that keeps some enemies from getting through, or to create a fighting area above most enemies that players can fire down through while keeping out of reach. Also, since Piggy Banks, Chests, crafting stations and most other furniture can be placed on them like on ordinary blocks (exceptions include gems and Crystal Shards), they can be used as a shelving to pack furniture into a confined space without restricting player movement.

Positioning platforms

A platform has four distinct positions, which can be cycled through by hitting it with a hammer, similarly to an ordinary block:

  1. In the default or "top" position, it occupies the top half of a block space. Only in this position can furniture be placed on top of it. This includes a Bottle (or similar), which will count as a Placed Bottle for crafting potions.
  2. After one hammer blow, it will change to the slanted stairs form, facing right. It may also show "struts" beneath the slanted part depending on adjacent blocks, but this is purely visual.
  3. A second hammer blow will switch it to stairs facing left.
  4. A third hammer blow will move it to its "bottom" position, horizontal but lowered to the bottom half of the block. (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Only in this position, banners (and some other hanging items) can be attached beneath them. However, Chandeliers or Lanterns will not attach there.

A fourth hammer blow will cycle the platform back to its default position. Only one platform can occupy a single block tile, so there cannot be top and bottom platforms in the same tile.

Stairs

Stairs can face either direction, regardless of what side of a block they are on. Walking up stairs in the direction they face will raise the player as expected, but walking towards stairs facing away from the player will not have any effect. As with normal platforms, pressing ▼ Down will cause stairs to be ignored. Nothing can be placed on stairs. Smart Cursor can be used to place stairs without having to hammer the platforms into the correct state.

Notes

  • Nearly all platform variants are functionally identical, and are differentiated only by their appearance and their crafting recipes. Obsidian, Stone and Ash Wood Platforms are an exception, in that they do not break upon contact with lava the way most platforms do, although they will still disintegrate if dropped or thrown into it.
    • Team Platforms can be broken by lava; however, they cannot be destroyed due to their rarity.
    • Meteorite Platforms' bright spots show up when exposed to any amount of light. This can make them visible even in the darkness surrounding a light source.
    • Echo Platforms are completely invisible when placed and cannot be seen by the player unless they have Spectre Goggles equipped or are near an Echo Chamber.
  • Hooks can attach to platforms. While grappling to a platform on the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, it is impossible to grapple to anything else, regardless of the direction the hook is fired in. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the hook will ignore all platforms covered by the player's body.
  • The player will fall through platforms while in a Minecart.
  • Wraiths cannot fly up using platforms but are able to hover on top of them.
  • On Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile versions, the dungeon, wood, brass, and metal shelves can be crafted at the Bone Welder with Ecto Mist.

Tips

An NPC-proof door. The stairs (and the platforms below) act as a divider between each "house cell". Everything can go through this entryway but NPCs see it as a solid wall so they turn around.
A stair elevator made of Platforms. Walk into it holding ▼ Down, and find the right spot on the Platforms to use it.
  • Stairs are a key part of many advanced movement techniques, such as hoiks, NPC-proof doors, elevators, or enemy traps.
  • Similarly to ordinary blocks, it is possible to remove every second platform in a row of platforms without movement disadvantages, as the player is two tiles wide and will not fall through.
  • Echo Coating is cheaper than Echo Platforms and has an almost identical invisibility effect.
