The Radar is an informational accessory which displays the number of nearby enemies in a 125-tile radius around the player. The Radar has a 1/10 (10%) chance of being obtained from looting regular Chests found on or near the surface, or a 1/100 (1%) chance from Wooden and Pearlwood Crates obtained via fishing. The Radar can also be purchased from the Skeleton Merchant during a Waxing Gibbous for 2 GC50 SC.

The Radar is one of the three parts necessary to make the R.E.K. 3000, with the others being the Tally Counter and the Lifeform Analyzer, and as such is a required ingredient in crafting the Shellphone.

  • Unlike most accessories, informational accessories such as the Radar do not need to be equipped in an accessory slot. The Radar may be carried in the player's inventory without loss of functionality, unless equipped to a social slot. Additionally, the info it provides will be shared with players of the same team in multiplayer that are within 50 tiles. Keep in mind modifiers will no longer apply to the player when not equipped.


  • Real-life radar is a detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, angle, or velocity of objects. It can be used to detect aircraft, ships, spacecraft, guided missiles, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain.
  • The Radar is the only item in Terraria that has a palindromic name.
