Throwing both Paper Airplane types at a Skeleton.

The Paper Airplane and White Paper Airplane are consumable ranged weapons. When thrown, they will travel in a different path each time, as they are affected by wind speed and direction, which is especially apparent on a Windy Day. The two variants are functionally identical. They are sometimes dropped by slimes that are carried by Windy Balloons, which can spawn during a Windy Day.

Unlike other consumable ranged weapons, Paper Airplanes always drop as an item when flying for too long, hitting a block, or hitting an enemy.


  • Due to their extremely low damage and rarity, they are not really a practical weapon, more a novelty item similar to the kites.


  • Desktop 1.4.1: Drop rate increased from 1.15*3/260 (1.15%) to 1.39*1/72 (1.39%) and drop stack size increased from 1 to 2–5.
