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 best used as novelty items similar to the kites.
