Vulcan Bolts are a type of arrow that is exclusively fired by Vulcan Repeaters, which turns all suitable ammo into Vulcan Bolts. Vulcan Bolts explode on impact, damaging nearby enemies and even the player. Unlike most other arrows, they explode, and therefore cannot be recovered.


  • Vulcan Bolts cannot naturally be added to a player's inventory without third-party software or commands, as they are only fired by the Vulcan Repeater, and are not able to be retrieved. The lack of recipe and spawn location makes this the only type of unobtainable ammunition.
  • Console versionMobile version Any existing Vulcan Bolts edited into players' inventories were replaced by Chlorophyte Arrows.


  • Vulcan Bolts can be very useful for lighting. However, one should keep in mind that using them for light in a small area can be dangerous, as self-inflicted damage caused by the bolts is usually near 100.
