A player riding in a minecart.

Minecarts are mounts that allow players to ride on Minecart Tracks. There are currently (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 27 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 1 different Minecarts.

On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile, Minecarts need to be equipped in the Minecart equipment slot, overriding the use of the Wooden Minecart. On Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DSNintendo 3DS version, the ordinary Minecart is the default and it cannot be changed.

When the player is near a Minecart Track, pressing the Quick Mount hotkey or pressing the Open / Activate key on a point on the track causes a Minecart to spawn, which the player is automatically placed in. Once inside, the ▶ Right and ◀ Left direction keys either accelerate, decelerate, or reverse the cart's movement. The cart will maintain its current speed and direction if no keys are pressed and no obstacles are reached. The cart can also "jump" with the Jump key.

To exit the Minecart (which causes the Minecart to despawn), the player can use a hook, press the Quick Mount hotkey, or cancel the buff (Desktop version right-clicking the icon, Console versionOld-gen console version selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu, Mobile version double-tapping the icon, or Nintendo 3DS version canceling the buff from the buffs screen). The Minecart will also despawn if the player jumps off the tracks, lands on blocks, and attempts to move sideways.

Upon colliding with an enemy, the minecart will deal damage to it and knock it back. See Notes for details.

(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Upon using a Minecart Upgrade Kit, all minecarts equipped thereafter will gain a significant speed boost and be equipped with a laser that will fire at nearby enemies. This effect can be toggled on and off through a probe icon next to the minecart slot.

Weapons and tools, as well as most other items except hooks, can be used while riding a Minecart. Using a hook while riding a Minecart automatically dismounts the player.

  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The contact damage and knockback dealt by minecarts is based on the speed when it collides with an entity. The damage cannot be boosted by damage bonus, and has a critical chance equal to the highest critical chance out of the player's melee, ranged, or magic critical chance. Also, the damage will be further boosted by 1.5× in Hardmode, and another 1.5× in Expert Mode and above. See the table below for the formulas used, and the stats at max speed. The Speed used in calculation is calculated by Current speed of the minecart ÷ Max speed of the minecart, and all decimals are rounded down.[2]

Trivia

The original teaser for the Minecarp.
  • The hook fired when Quick Mount is pressed is identical to the Grappling Hook in appearance.
  • The Minecarp's name is a portmanteau, combining the words Minecart and carp fish.
    • Its tooltip is a reference to the original teaser it was first shown in.
  • Despite all of the Large Gems differing in appearance, all the Gem Minecarts look almost the same aside from color and detailing on the gem.

History

  • Desktop 1.4.4:
    • Added the Fart Kart and Terra Fart Kart.
    • Added the Minecart Upgrade Kit.
      • The Mechanical Cart no longer has special properties. Previously, its stats are the same as minecarts boosted by the Minecart Upgrade Kit.
    • Minecarts now hit harder in higher difficulties, deal more knockback, and are generally better at hitting enemies without letting the player be hurt when colliding with enemies.
  • Desktop 1.3.0.1:
    • Now equippable, dyeable and has a sell value.
    • Added 2 new variants.
