Venom Arrows are post-Plantera arrows used as ammunition for bows and repeaters. They have the highest base damage of all arrows and they inflict the Acid Venom debuff upon hitting an enemy.

Of all the Hardmode arrows, they are the easiest to craft, as their ingredients can both be bought from NPCs: they require only Wooden Arrows (5 CC each, bought from the Merchant) and a Vial of Venom (15 SC each, bought from the Witch Doctor), totaling 16 SC75 CC for 35 Venom Arrows (approximately 48 CC per arrow), or 47 GC85 SC24 CC for a full stack of 9999 Venom Arrows.

  • Despite the high damage and the debuff of Venom Arrows, there are other arrows that can technically deal more DPS, such as the echoing ability of Luminite Arrows, Holy Arrows' stars or the defense-reducing ability of Ichor Arrows.
  • Venom Arrows' high base damage makes them the best choice for bows that convert all arrows into special types.
