5 best weapons in Terraria

Posted by Nitisha Upadhye on April 1st, 2022

As easy and adorable Terraria looks, it gets tougher as you progress. The bosses start seeming invincible and you have to keep crafting powerful weapons. In Terraria, you get to use a lot of different weapons.

From yo-yos to spears and shotguns, you can fight bosses in a variety of ways. You can craft some weapons and others are drops that you can gather after boss battles. So whether it’s pre-hardmode or hardmode, equip yourself with the strongest weapon on the list!


You could say that Terraprisma is one of the most powerful weapons in Terraria. The post-hardmode weapon is dropped by the Empress of Light, who you might encounter in the underground jungle.

Terraprisma's attack pattern involves an extremely quick thrust, before constantly attacking with a spinning motion. It’s the best and most powerful summoning weapon you can obtain in this game.

Space gun

If you’re more of a gun person, you need to get your hands on this Space Gun. It’s a Terraria-n ray gun that can pierce two enemies consecutively, making it one of the best guns for pre-hardmode dungeons. With Meteor Armor, the Space Gun does not take mana to create. This can be utilized to eat up time while your mana restores.


Found in Shadow Chests, Sunfury is a pre-hardmode flail weapon that looks like a cheerful yellow whip. For close-quarter combat, using Sunfury can be a gamechanger. Moreover, the melee weapon is highly practical while traversing the underground.

Daedalus Stormbow

The Daedalus Stormbow is a Hardmode ranged weapon that showers arrows down from the sky, rather than firing them from the bow. As you can attack your foes from a safe distance, it’s a great weapon that you can use until the end. If you prefer magic weapons, you should consider using Meteor Staff which is similar to Daedalus Stormbow.

Dark Lance Spear

You can find Dark Lance Spear in Shadow Chests and Obsidian Crates. This melee weapon pierces foes repeatedly. You can make the spear even more powerful with a Godly or Demonic modifier. The pre-hardmode weapon is also useful for navigating meandering tunnels as it has a long reach and it radiates in the dark.

There are several more powerful weapons that you can craft or pick up in the game. And depending on your play style, you might prefer one to another. Still, you should find one of the options on this list to your liking.
